Kane watched her go up the stairs and sighed, “I
Missed so much and I regret it...I wish I would have been here for everything. Her firsts...” he did regret leaving because of Millie.
The three of them are dinner and talked about the dog and the dance and whatever else Millie brought up in conversation and by the time she was finished she was yawning.
“I’m going to go to bed. Night mom night dad.” She said as she kissed them both. “I’m a big girl I don’t need you to take me.” Aleks laughed and nodded.
“Well alright angel, sleep well.”
“Daddy can’t wait to see you in your dress. I’ll be here at 6 to pick you up princess.” He said smiling to Millie. He would do anything for that little girl and he needed Aleks to know that.
Aleks swallowed hard, not knowing what to say to him. She was still so unsure about her own feelings and she didn’t want to mislead him in anyway. She was glad when Millie came back into the room because it meant they had a distraction at least.
“I bet you can’t wait you are going to look beautiful in your dress.” She said as she brought the food to the table.
Kane smiled, “Thank you. I do still love you aleks, maybe even more now.” He places the plates on the table and smiled seeing Millie rush back into the kitchen. The little girl was a ball of energy. “My dance is tomorrow!” She was so excited that Kane was taking her, it would be a fiasco but he was taking her.
She might have known that this was coming sooner or later and a part of her hoped that it would be later...much later. While she had pushed her anger aside for the sake of their daughter and she wasn't sure if she was ready to drag it all up again but they needed to talk.
Aleks reluctantly nodded. "Yes we can talk."
"Sure darlin'." Kane said picking up the small stack of plates and carrying them to the table to sit them out. "Do you mind if after she goes to bed... we talk about things? I know we weren't in the best place but now we can talk about what happened when we were apart."
Aleks nodded as he spoke and she smiled down at Millie. "Go get yourself cleaned up, dinner will be ready soon." She kissed her on the head and set her down so that she could run off to the bathroom and wash her hands.
"Can you take those plates into the dining room?" She asked Kane as she pointed to the plays of the kitchen side and continued to stir the bolognese.
Kane chuckled, "I've never seen her so excited... but we talked about it, Rambo is daddy's dog and stays at daddy's house but Millie can come see him anytime she wants as long as mommy says its okay." Kane was tiptoeing carefully with the boundries. He didn't want to upset Aleks.
Millie's favourite meal was spaghetti bolognese and the smell of it filled the room. It wasn't until Millie started running towards her that she realised they had even returned. She jumped into her arms and started talking about exciting it was that they had got a dog.
"That's great sweetheart. I bet you are excited."
Kane and Millie were right on time and Kane laughed at the little girl running into the kitchen to find her mother. "Momma Momma, daddy and I picked out his puppy." Kane smiled as he leaned in the doorway, "His name is Rambo and hes a bulldog and I pick him up tomorrow while shes at school.. hes all paid for and we will go shopping for things for him when shes allowed to go with me again."
Although she spent her afternoon in important meetings her mind was else where. She didn’t know what to do about Millie’s school situation but at least now she had Kane to talk to about ideas. When she finished she went home she started cooking food.
Kane nodded, “thank you Aleks, I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Nope just baby cones.” Soon Kane had her strapped in her seat in his truck, and headed to the animal shelter.
“I’ll make your favourite for dinner tonight so don’t fill up on too much ice cream.” She smiled and looked up at Kane. “If you want to stay for dinner tonight you are more than welcome.” She said quietly.
Kane nodded, "I can take her Aleks, I promise shes safe with me." He said kissing the top of Millie's head. "Millie, mommy is going to drop you and me off at my truck and we are going to do something really fun and get ice cream."
