CHAPTER 42๐Ÿ’
We high fived each other and giggled. “I should retire to bed now” she yawned.
The door slide open and Zach walked into the room. He giggled and ran to hug me.
Zach is the doctor’s child, he is loveable and also very fond of me. These past few days I’ve spent with him made me like him alot. Maybe it’s because I’m going to be having a child soon.
I squated to his height and ruffled his hair. “Hey big man. How are you doing?
“I’m fine. Aunty Claire, can I sleep here? I think I saw a ghost” he pouted and I had to urge to laugh. Danielle on the other hand couldn’t help but chuckle.
“A ghost? Zach you pretty little liar” I giggled ticking him.
He laughed hysterically and said, “Fine… you caught me but let me stay with you”
“Zach… I…”
“Please” he gave me those cute puppy eyes that I couldn’t resist.
“Fine”
“Yippee” he giggled happily and climbed on the bed.
“Wow, he seems to like you a lot”
“I guess so”
“You might actually end up adopting him as your child”
“Danielle!”
“Just kidding. I’m off to bed” She pecked my cheeks and left the room.
I sighed and got on the bed. I cuddled him softly and pecked his forehead.
“Daisy, will you sing me a Lullaby? My favourite?” he smiled.
“I don’t know your favorite” I rolled my eyes.
“Of course you do, its ‘All is found’ from Frozen”
I chuckled. “You watch too much cartoons”
“Cartoons are the best, especially Frozen.It’s my favorite” he grinned, “Sing me will you?”
“Of course, I will”
๐ŸŽต”All Is Found” – (from “Frozen 2โ€)๐ŸŽต
๐ŸŽถWhere the north wind meets the sea
There’s a river full of memory
๐ŸŽถSleep, my darling, safe and sound
For in this river all is found
๐ŸŽถIn her waters, deep and true
Lie the answers and a path for you
๐ŸŽถDive down deep into her sound
But not too far or you’ll be drowned
๐ŸŽถYes, she will sing to those who’ll hear
And in her song, all magic flows
๐ŸŽถBut can you brave what you most fear?
Can you face what the river knows?
๐ŸŽถWhere the north wind meets the sea
There’s a mother full of memory
Come, my darling, homeward bound
๐ŸŽถWhen all is lost, then all is found.
I smiled softly as I watched him sleep. “You look just like his mother”
I turn to my door to see my mom. “Mom, you should be in bed” I rolled my eyes. She walked into the room and sat on my bed.
“Don’t try to run away from this conversation”
“Mom. I’m not” I sighed.
“You see when Zach’s parents died, he shut himself against the world. Barely talked, he didn’t even have appetite to eat, he lost himself completely. I took him to see the therapist several times but none of that worked”
“Mom, why are you telling me this? I know Zach has been through alot…”
“That’s not my point Daisy, he sees you has mother right from the first day he set his eyes on you. Don’t you get it?”
I sighed remembering my first meeting with Zach.
๐Ÿ’ญFLASHBACK๐Ÿ’ญ
“Mom, this gown looks beautiful. You should order it”I showed her the wedding gown on my phone.
“Wow it is beautiful. I think I’ll get it” The nanny rushed into the sitting with fear written on her face.
“No one told me you got a nanny?” I rolled my eyes.
“It’s for Zach, the doctor’s son”
“Oh” I muttered.
“Ma’am… Zach… Zach…”
“Zach? What did he do?” mom yelled.
“He locked himself inside his room. I fear he may want to commit suicide”
“What? Zach is not suicidal. Get me the spare key and be fast about it” mom yelled and the nanny ran out the sitting room.
“Zach…” she muttered and ran upstairs. I followed her closely behind scared and worried. Despite the fact that I hadn’t met him but his father and mother saved my mother. It would be disastrous that the son dies too.
“Zach. Open up” she called but no response.
“Anita” she yelled.
“It’s gonna be fine mom. Nothing is gonna happen to him” I tried to assure her but I wasn’t sure myself.
“I just pray so” she muttered in tears.
“Ma’am, the keys” Anita handed the keys to mom. She unlocked the door and pushed it open.He was on the bed with his head buried in between his raised knees. I could hear his faint sobs, he was actually crying.
At that moment, I felt sad. Maybe I should have allowed Logan pay for his sins, maybe I should have let him get a dead sentence. Part of it, wasn’t his fault but he destroyed lives, just like the life of this innocent child.
“Zach” mom cooed softly and sat on his bed. He raised his head up slightly and said in tears, “I miss them”
“I know Zach but they wouldn’t want to see you this way, they want you to be strong”
“I’m weak. I’m weak without them”
“It’s okay” mom cuddled him softly in her arms. He raised his head up and out eyes met. A glint of happiness flashed through his eyes.
“Mummy” he got out of the bed and ran to hug me. I was surprised at first but I squatted to his height and hug him back.
“I’m not… your… mu…” I trailed off not knowing what to say.
“Mummy, will you play a game with me?”
“I’m not your mummy. I’m Claire”
“Will you be my mummy?”
***
I sighed tiredly, I still don’t have the answer to that question yet. “Why don’t you try adopting him?”
“Mom…”
“Just think about it and you should also talk this with Darrell”
“Mom, we are not yet married”
“But he is planning to and besides you are pregnant for him already. I just want the best for Zach Daisy. Please”
I sighed. “I will think about it”
“OK dear. Good night” she pulled me into a hug before leaving.
I laid on the bed still deep in thoughts. “Good night Zach” I whispered and smiled.
๐ŸŒ„THE NEXT MORNING๐ŸŒ„
I opened my eyes slowly due to the noise from the alarm clock. I grunted and turned it off.
I turn to the other side and his eyes were wide open. “Good morning mom” he giggled. I really wanted to protest about being called mom but I let it be.
“Good morning” Anita walked into the room and smiled.
“Good morning ma’am. How was your night?”
“Fine but I have told you countless times, please don’t refer to me as ma’am”
“Ma’am… I mean Claire”
“Better”
“Zach, come on come go take a bath”
“No. Mummy will bath me”
“Wait, what?”
“But she is busy, she has to help her mom in the dressing room. Come on, come with me”
“No” he pouted arms crossed.
“Anita you can leave now, I will bath him myself. Please get me his clothes from his room”
“Ok. Ma… I mean Claire”
I chuckled silently. “You can leave now” I watched her as she walked out of my room.
“Mummy, come on. Let’s go into the bathroom”
“Oh, okay” I sighed and followed him into the bathroom. I turned on the shower and bathed him properly. After bathing him, I cleaned his body with a towel after which, I wore him his black tuxedo suit.
“How do I look?” he giggled turning around for me to check him out.
“breathtaking” I smiled.
“Really? but I still feel sad”
“Why is that?”
“Cause you don’t want to be my mother”
“Zach…”
“Will be my mummy?” I was about answering that when…
“Claire, you are still not dressed?” Danielle said walking into the room.
“No, I should go bath now” I rushed into the bathroom.
“Come on, Zach. I’ll take you to Ellie, just let her bath”
“Ok” I didn’t hear any more voices so I guess they left.
***
I walked into mom’s room and saw that she was almost done with dressing. Of course, Danielle and Daniela were in the room with her including two beautiful make up artist.
I smiled at mom and whispered, “Good morning”
“Miss Claire, we’ve been waiting for you. Come have your make up done”
“Ok” I sat down on the dressing chair as she worked wonders on my face.
“Wow, Claire you look so beautiful. Darrell might end up eating you raw at the church” Danielle gaped and I chuckled. Hearing his name made me remember how much I missed him.
“No one is eating my daughter raw” I rolled my eyes and chuckled softly.
“About eating someone raw, it looks like someone got eaten raw yesterday night”
“Uhmm and who could that be?”
“So Daniela. How was your night” I winked.
She blushed. “Fuck you Claire, I can’t believe you actually set me up”
“It wasn’t a bad set up you know, so I heard you both had sex” I grinned.

Daniela is in for it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
Do you think Claire should adopt Zach?
