It's Just Getting Started
"Dr. Smith said I am six weeks pregnant and the baby is kind of small for it's age. She has to keep an eye on her or him," Summer said and I sighed. It's been three days since we found out Summer is pregnant with that bastard's baby. I don't blame her one bit, it's not her fault that the sadistic son-of-a-bitch didn't use a condom.
"Well, we know the baby is fine. Any signs of Darin or his colleagues?" I asked her. Since that encounter I had, Summer swears she sees Darin's cars everywhere. She hides her face or her mother gets into her line of sight.
"No, not a thing. It's been quiet since yesterday. Make sure to call the police if they come back," she said and I agreed.
"I love you, baby," I said and I can tell she is smiling.
"I love you, too, see you after work." She got off the phone and the nurse came in with my daily appointments. The first one is a young man of twenty-two and he is in for a UTI. I got him to go ahead and pee in a cup and I waited on him in hallway beside his exam room. When I seen him walk down, I about shit my pants, he looks like the guy I seen in the car. I quickly took my name badge off and stick it in my pocket. I seen the urinalysis and it just has blood, so it's really nothing. "Hey Ryan, I am…Henry, and by your urinalysis, I see no signs of infection, so you are free to go," I said and the young man sighed in relief.
"Hey doc, I can tell you something and don't tell anyone?" he said and I gulped. Oh God, what is he going to tell me?
"Yeah, what is it?"
"My boss is like possessed with this girl and makes me look for her all over Miami everyday and won't let me eat or drink. I think I am dehydrated. " I look at his urinalysis and he does have an above normal level of protein, just slight and nothing to worry about. Just an indicator that he is actually dehydrated.
"Well, you have a scant amount of protein in your urine, so you are dehydrated. Do you need a work excuse?" I asked him and he said no. "Mr. Roberts doesn't allow absences," he said and I nodded.
"Well, just drink more than usual water and some Gatorade and you should be fine." He smiled and he left. When the door closed, my heart stopped trying to come out of my chest. Shit, that was a close one!
When I got home, Summer is making dinner, and it smells like fried chicken. "Baby, I am home," I said throwing my keys down and she smiled. I decided not to tell her about Ryan, Darin's worker, showing up and telling me that he is looking for her. She is already stressed enough about having Darin's kid. "How was work?" She asked from the kitchen.
"Normal, pretty slow," I said and she nodded.
"Amy wants to take me baby shopping already. I told her I want to wait until we know the gender in a few months. That girl is addicted to shopping. She hates the fact its Darin's baby."
"Everybody does but everybody will still love the baby." I will love him like my own. Summer and I will have a baby of our own someday, so I ain't sweating it. She walked to me and wrapped her arms around me and kissed me. She lay her head against my chest and I ran my fingers through her soft hair. I never knew I would fall in love with her. She is eleven years younger than me, but she acts so much mature than her age. "What's for dinner?" I asked and she smiled.
"Fried chicken, Collard Greens and some biscuits my grandma made when I was a kid, I took her recipe," she said and I laughed. She went back to the kitchen to continue to cook and I turned on the television. I watched the news and about a half hour later, dinner is ready. She hollered to come eat and I came and got my plate. When I ate her food, I went to heaven. She cooks better than my own mother! "Like it?" Summer asked and I smiled.
"You will make my mom jealous," I said and she looked down on her plate. She has not been eating really good since she found out she was pregnant.
"I can't eat this, I want some granola and bread." The cravings have started. She stood up and found the bag of granola and the loaf of bread and began eating the hell out of it. "God this is so good!" she said and I began to laugh.
"I thought pregnant women crave pickles and ice cream," I said and she threw a piece of bread at me. Oh, she wants to play eh? I grabbed a piece of biscuit and threw it at her and she giggled. Oh, this is going to be fun!
Oh shit, what did I just start? I see a playful look in his eyes and I just threw a piece of bread because of his stupid joke about pregnancy cravings. "Come here, baby girl," Carter said in his cute voice.
"No, I won't, Carter Harris!" I said and he clicked his tongue.
"That cute little hiney of yours cannot run far from me!"
"Oh I can!" I ran towards the guest bedroom and laughing the whole way and Carter is not that far behind. I turned around and went for our bedroom and then he got me. "I told you so!" He said and he pushed me off the bed and held me down by my arms. His grip is not as tight as Darin's, but Carter's face changed to Darin's evil grin and the room got dark, very dark and cold. "Hold still bitch!" he said and I closed my eyes and screamed to get off of me. "Get off of me, I don't want to! It hurts too much, Darin!" I screamed and began to hit him. His hands went to my face and began to shake me.
"Baby, it's me, Carter!" Carter said and I looked up and it's Carter again. I looked up at him and I pulled myself away and began to cry. Carter crawled up to me and pulled me into his arms. "Sorry, I thought we we're playing around. When did I change to him?" He asked. He knew I was having a flashback.
"When you held me down," I said and he kissed me.
"I won't do that again, promise. I love you, baby."
"I love you, too." Our lips began to move faster and I push him down so I am on top and wrapped my legs around him and he smiled. When I began to unbutton his shirt, I heard a loud crash and I screamed. Carter jerked up and ran to the living room and I heard him yell. I ran inside and there is a hole in the window and the culprit is a big red brick with a piece of paper on it with "Summer" written on it. Carter got it off the brick and there is another one with "Carter" written on it. Carter gave me mine and I read it aloud:
Summer baby, I cannot believe you left me. I know I can get a little rough with you, but you agreed to it. Come back and let's talk things though, without your doctor boyfriend. Oh yeah, don't count on me to be rough with you when I see you. Better show up or my men will find you and take you to me! Love Darin. I threw the note down and began to cry. He found us, because I went to find Carter. I got Carter in danger as well. Carter crumbled his note up and got on his knees and held me. "How did he find us?" I cried out.
"A guy name Ryan came in and he is one of his men. He said that he has been finding his bosses girl and he got dehydrated. I didn't know until he mentioned Mr. Roberts and he looked familiar and I hid my name badge and changed my name," Carter said and I sighed.
"He remembers you from the day I went to find you. What are we going to do?"
"Call the police, that's what we gonna do." That is the only choice. We have to get the police involved.
