Milli smiled a bit to Nadia as they set off and she had to admit a spa break was exactly what she needed to ease her nerves for tomorrow. She loved Nathan, she always had ever since she had seen that pensive expression he had on their first meeting. Well and truly pampered they were in the spa and of course when they went back to the hotel there was an amazing dinner waiting and Milli was just glad everyone seemed to be getting along and seemed to be happy enough.
Evelyn was a tad fussy, Milli could tell as she looked around expectantly for her father but her grandmothers kept her busy and distracted for the most part. It did a good job of keeping her nerves at ease, not that she thought anything would go wrong, it was more like excitement. Milli was soon exhausted and she headed up to the room she had with Evelyn, getting the little one settled and making sure everything was laid out for the morning. She hung her dress in the wardrobe and touched the fabric, letting it run through her fingertips.
It was early when Milli awoke and she had set about fixing her hair and makeup, the others helping of course as she got Evelyn ready first. A car would be coming soon and her mother shooed her to get her dress on and she let Nadia help lace everything and make sure everything was perfectly fitted. The dress was white with lace sleeves and a sweetheart neckline. It wasn’t anything overly spectacular because Milli knew that the ceremony itself was the important thing.
“Right! Come on, can’t have you being late.” Her mother said as she gathered Evelyn in her cute little lilac dress and they headed down to the car, of course a couple cameras snapped pictures, some were the paparazzi but Milli didn’t even pay it any attention as she got into the car, her father at her side.
Would he be fine? Of course, but Nathan did worry about Bradley who he knew loved Milli as though she were his birth mother and the idea of her leaving scared him. Of course, it was understandable, considering his history with Charlotte. Nathan kissed Milli back in return. “We’ll be fine. I love you and want you to have fun, so don’t worry about us. Okay?” Nathan chuckled as he watched the women leave. He sighed out then and looked to Bradley who was still eating his pancakes. “It’s just you and me bud,” Nathan said before taking a sip of his coffee.
Nadia looked to Milli. “A beautiful spa day at a really nice hotel. You know since Dean and I have gotten back together, he is doing everything in his power to . . . [I make up] for what happened. Mo m is already there, and she is loving all the attention from the male staff “Nadia gave a chuckle as she ushered the girls into the car. She made sure the girls were all buckled in properly before heading toward the driver’s seat.
Eventually she pulled dup to a beautiful building, with a garden surrounding the perimeters. There were few people coming in and out, but for the most part it was private which Nadia knew Milli would enjoy. She had them checked in and gave Milli a key to her room. “There’s a day care and everything, I figure we can have a day purely to ourselves!”
Dean and Michael soon arrived, and the three men were then faced with reality of trying to keep a young boy entertained: it truly was a challenge. They ended up having fun though, deciding on watching. Couple of documentaries that Bradley was interested in and eventually settling on pizza and video games. Bradley was soon asleep, and Nathan and the boys were outside in the backyard getting things set up.
Eventually they settled outside and enjoyed a smoke. Michael was just chosen for a lead role in a movie which he was excited about. It made Nathan think about Milli ad her career, which he knew was blossoming into something great. Their future seemed promising and that was more than he could ask for: a life of happiness.
Milli finished plating up some pancakes for Bradley and looked over to Nathan, smiling softly.
“You can look at me.” She said to him and cupped his face, kissing his lips softly as she glanced over to see Nadia entering. She couldn’t stop the small laugh, a guilty smile fixed in place. Milli glanced for Nathan and smiled a little,
“Alright, let me sort myself and Evelyn.” She said and fixed Nathan a coffee before heading up. She packed her things and Evelyn’s. She changed and tied her hair up, making sure she was presentable.
She headed downstairs and looked to Nathan, Evelyn in her arms still sleepy.
“Sure you’re going to be okay?” She asked him as she smoothed her shirt down and looked to Bradley. She was worried given Bradley was evidently scared Milli wouldn’t come back but she knew she would and hoped he understood that.
Milli pressed a kiss to Nathan’s lips,
“I love you.” She murmured, “I’ll see you tomorrow, alright?” She promised and looked to Nadia,
“What’ve you got planned?” She asked with a small smile, wondering what she would have up her sleeve. She trusted Nadia enough to know the woman wouldn’t do anything overly wild.
“I think we both lucked out,” Nathan said with a smile. Being with Milli wasn’t easy and here was nothing bad about that. Being with her had certainly drawn him out of his comfort zone. Yet, the way Milli had challenged him made him a better person, a greater husband and father. He thought about his life before her with Charlotte and Julia – Nathan knew that his love for them didn’t even come close to the love he had for Milli. Nathan followed his wife to their bedroom, closing the door and watching as she tip toed toward the bed, a seductive dance that certainly did pique his interest. How Milli could ever think she had lost his attention was still confusing. Nathan loved the way her skin glowed against the dark backdrop of their bedroom; certain curves illuminated by the dim lighting of the bedroom lights. The way her dark hair feathered over her shoulders and down her back.
He’d matched her slow movements, his hands burning to glide along her smooth skin, to feel the flat scar from the c-section before dipping and holding her close. Milli liked to talk about Nathan and how lucky she was to have a man like him and yet, Nathan felt like he’d won life’s lottery wit Milli. His love for her stretched beyond the plains of their bed; it rested in the soft gasp she gave when he was close, or the gentle brushing of her kiss against his jawline. To get to this point after what they had been through was remarkable. His hands had interlaced withers, splitting and crossing like the lines on a transit map. He stared down into those mismatched colored eyes and out of a state of euphoria had managed to utter the words he’d never thought he would say just from that first meeting on the train, “I love you.”
Nathan woke up, sometime after Milia as she was no longer in bed. It was amazing to think that tomorrow he would be standing before her in front of their families and again vowing his life to being her husband. He’d puled on a pair of sweats and a shit, heading out to find everyone up and gathering for breakfast. Nathan playfully covered his eyes, “Am I still not supposed to see you?” He asked with a chuckle, kissing her cheek before grabbing a mug for some coffee. Almost as if on cue, there was a knock at the door. He opened it to find his sister and nieces who eagerly came in. She clucked her tongue.
“Milli you are not supposed to be cooking.” Nathan feigned innocence by putting his hands up.
“Hey, I didn’t put her up to it,” he said with a chuckle. Nadia walked over to Milli.
“You – go get ready! I have a whole day planned!”
Milli smiled a little,
“I’m sure me and the girls might just have a night of pampering, even little Evelyn.” She said and smiled a little to him. It would be strange being away from him for a night, and given the excitement of the wedding, she wasn’t sure she would get much sleep. She looked to Nathan and smiled softly, reassured by his words.
“How did I get so lucky, Hm?” She murmured as she took his hand and got to her feet, pressing a kiss to his lips. Egypt seemed like a dream and she didn’t want to pass up any sort of adventure with Nathan and their kids.
Milli lead him upstairs and made sure to check the kids who were both sleeping. She took her time with Nathan, slipping beneath the sheets and discarding her clothes and inviting him in with her. She figured if they were spending an entire night separated then why not marvel at the man she was going to be wed to officially? Milli was as always satisfied beyond her wildest dreams as she settled at his side, breathless and flushed in colour.
Morning broke and Milli stirred as she heard Bradley already up. She slipped into some clothes and went over to his room, watching the young boy tidy his room and she smiled a little, hugging him good morning.
“You and dad get some time tonight before tomorrow. I’m going to be at the hotel with Evelyn.” She explained and Bradley looked confused.
“You’re coming back though, right?” Bradley asked, hesitantly and Milli frowned a little.
“Of course I am.” She said and kissed his cheek.
“Chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast?” She offered.
It was quite exciting to think about having a traditional ceremony. Though, Nathan had talked Michel and Dean out of a bachelor party. It had been quite some time since he and Milli didn’t sleep together and he was sure it would be weird. Would it make the moment even more special? As though that were at all possible. He still was in awe that through everything, they remained together and looked forward to what their future would bring.
After a long day, Nathan eagerly sunk into the couch after wishing the kids goodnight. Milli had tucked them in, returning with the look of exhaustion he was sure he also showed. It was a good night though and Nathan was glad things went over smoothly with his parents in law.
“I’m glad. I was worried they’d steal you away,” Nathan teased, his arm draped across the back of the couch. Nathan frowned some then, drawing Milli in close. “A night away from my two favorite girls? Maybe I will have that bachelor party,” he teased. “Kid friendly of course.” Nathan chuckled, already thinking of what he and Bradley could get into. He knew that he still favored Milli a bit more, but Nathan knew that as a result of his relationship with Charlotte. He hadn’t heard from her since she left and often wondered what she had gotten into. He could only hope that she was safe. He had hope that maybe when he was older, Bradley would get a chance to speak with her and possibly patch up that troubled part of his childhood.
“Of course, I don’t want to call it off,” Nathan said as he kissed Milli on the cheek. “I’ve never been surer of anything in my life than this. I love you.” Nathan said with a smile. His hand brushed through Milli’s hair, watching as she closed her eyes “Come on, let’s get to bed. I have to soak up as much as I can before tomorrow night.” Nathan came to a stand, reaching for her hand. “Soon, we’ll be in Egypt.”
A trip to a seafront fish and chips was ideal and no matter how much Milli insisted her parents opted to stay in the hotel much to her dismay but she figured they would want their own time too. Nikki’s father made a deliberate attempt to point out that tomorrow night Nathan or Milli could use the hotel room given it was the night before the ceremony. Milli was just relieved to be home and she helped to settle the kids who were exhausted after such a lively day and she spent a little time watching over them, grateful for their existence in her world.
Milli headed downstairs and smiled softly to Nathan,
“My parents like you.” She said softly with a of as she nodded onto the couch, looking to him with a small sense of relief.
“I’ll head over to the hotel tomorrow, I can take Evelyn.” She said and had no doubt the girl would fuss at being away from her father. She figured it would be easier to have her mother close by and she looked to Nathan.
“Still sure about this?” She said with a small giggle, “If you’re not we can call it all off.” She assured him and knew it was a lot but they had so much to look forwards to. Two beautiful children and a holiday that was long overdue.
She tilted her head back and just rested for a moment, drinking in the peace. Tomorrow would be busy with last minute preparations and no doubt Michael would keep Nathan company on the run up. It would be nice to have all of the family together on such a lovely day. She didn’t want to wait. The accident had only shown her everything had, everything she took for granted.
Lunch was served and they all seemed to enjoy a casual and calm evening eating in front of the telly and hanging out in the living room. Bradley had eventually run off to his rom and Eve was trying to become her grandfather’s favorite. Nathan was still surprised that their life had come to this point where they were enjoying the domestic bliss of being married. H smiled at Milli as she went back and forth with her parents, knowing how hard it was for her not to try to do everything, but her mother had won her over.
“Fish and chips sound good, it has been a while,” Nathan admitted. They hadn’t really been out, having cooking a lot at home and while Nathan didn’t mind, he didn’t want them sheltered away. Milli of course was still sought out by the press, but fortunately thigs had settled. He could only imagine how that would change come the slip of tongue about the wedding and he knew someone was going to say something, but nothing would ruin his perfect day that he had planned for his wife
“It’s still pretty early too. Maybe we can find somewhere we can get a nice breeze from the shore,” he suggested. “I’m sure Michael knows some place.” Nathan had text him and sure enough he knew a great spot with the best view. Eventually he got the kids together and they were set to go in different cars. Nathan had made sure Evelyn was all strapped in and they soon headed out.
The food was delicious, and the time spent with Milli’s parents and the kids was fun. By the time they were home and getting the kids to bed, all Nathan wanted was a little alone time with his wife.
Milli set the plate of sandwiches on the table for the kids and smiled to Bradley, fixing his hair gently.
“How are they?” Alice asked and Milli looked to her mother.
“The kids? Great. Perfect.” Milli explained and smiled a little. She took a sandwich and her cup of warm tea and sat at the kitchen table with her mother, glancing over to Nathan and her father, at least glad they seemed to be getting along because she knew how protective her father could be.
“Is it difficult?” Alice asked and watched Milli, glancing to where Bradley was playing his console. Milli thought for a while,
“Sometimes. But not really. I love him just the same, he even calls me mom from time to time. He loves Evelyn too. I just feel awful his mother isn’t around.” Milli murmured and Alice tutted at that,
“I don’t know how she can do it.” She murmured and Milli just shrugged. She knew the woman had a lot of problems and she wasn’t going to judge her for it but of course she felt bad for Bradley.
Evelyn had managed to crawl up on Gareth’s lap, grateful for the attention whilst Bradley had wrapped himself in the blanket Alice and Gareth had brought from Australia.
“I should get us something for dinner.” Milli said as she got up, looking through the cupboards.
“Oh, no. Don’t bother yourself with cooking. Besides, it’s been too long since I’ve had fish and chips, just not the same in Australia.” Gareth chuckled and Milli smiled a little. Alice rolled her eyes,
“It’s all he spoke about on the flight. C’mon, let us treat you both to some fish and chips.” Alice said and wasn’t going to take no for an answer as Milli sat back down and nodded.
Bradley was a tad standoffish, but Nathan expected that considering it did take time for him to warm up to people. These were his grandparents and over time, Nathan knew that he would become comfortable. Evelyn was blown away however and more than likely it was from the extra attention she was getting. He smiled at Milli as she came out, followed shortly by her father.
“Gareth. It’s great to finally meet you,” he responded and shook his hand. He looked to Milli before her parents again. He knew it was silly to suggest they still didn’t like him, but of course he tried to make it clear without words just how much he loved Milli.
Nathan kissed Milli’s cheek before she and her mother went to make lunch. Nathan sat on the couch, watching the children before returning to his father in law. It was such a strange concept to think that and while he and Milli had been married for the last couple of months, it still was amazing to say.
“Right, Milli and I always talked about it with how crazy things are, just felt like it’d be a nice get away.” He took a sip of his tea. Nathan was happy that he was fortunate enough for them to have this trip. They had a crazy relationship that had moments that were miserable and tough, but not once did Nathan doubt his love for Milli and they had beautiful and happy moments that definitely outweighed the bad. “I thought we should push it after the accident, but you know Milli.” He said with a chuckle. She had healed well and while it was hard to get her to listen to him about slowing down, he was happy that she was such a strong woman to push pass it. It made his stomach twist then thinking about the chance of them having another child. If they were even to get pregnant, how safe would it be to deliver?
Nathan shook his head, telling himself he was just overthinking. “I’d love for you to join, but I hear you guys are busy.”
“Yeah, but we wouldn’t miss this for the world of course. My daughter seems very happy with you Nathan.” Gareth smiled in his direction then, patting him gently on the back. Nathan chuckled and exhaled a breath he hadn’t known he was holding in. He soon turned on the tv to something they both enjoyed.
Milli smiled when she heard Nathan come in and she looked to her father,
“Come on.” She said as she took out the tea and coffee and Gareth followed her. The man eyed Nathan over and although he knew how much trouble the man had been in when it came to the media and such, he also knew that his daughter seemed very happy around him and loved him.
“Nathan, a pleasure to meet you.” He said as he shook Nathan’s hand.
Milli watched as she prepared some lunch for the kids and smiled a little. It was nice to have her parents around for a change but she didn’t blame them for immigrating to a beautiful country.
“Heard you guys are going to Egypt for a while?” Gareth said as he tried to invite Nathan into casual conversation.
Alice cane over to help Milli prepare some sandwiches for everyone,
“He’s handsome.” Her mother chuckled quietly and Milli smiled,
“He seems lovely, dear.” Alice said and watched the kids as she set a plate of sandwiches on the table for everyone to help themselves to.
“And I simply have to see your dress.” Alice said and was very glad they had made it to London for this wedding.
Nathan had soon arrived at the cottage. He saw Milli’s car and figured her and the kids were back. He knew then that would mean her parents had arrived. Nathan brushed his hands through his hair and got out of the car. He took a moment to smoke a cigarette, just to calm down. He didn’t know why he was so nervous. Would her parents see something in him that made him not seem the man right for their daughter? Nathan had adjusted his clothing then and smoothed back his hair into a more presentable looking bun before heading toward the front door.
Nathan was met with a warm welcome from Bradley as he came in. He always managed to bring a smile to Nathan’s face. He bent down and kissed the top of Bradley’s head, smiling then. “Hey Bray.” Bradley took his hand then, leading him into the house just as he was taking his shoes off. Evelyn affectionately called him did, squirming in the lap of who he could only assume to be Milli’s mother. They shared the same features, beautiful inviting almond eyes and a wonderous smile.
“You must be Nathan,” his mother in law said, grinning as she came to. Stand and gave him a hug. “I’m Alice of course.”
“Of course, nice to meet you. I’m so happy you’re here. Where’s your husband . . . Gareth, right?”
“Right,” Alice said with a smile. “He’s in the kitchen with Milli.” Nathan had removed his jacket by then, Evelyn being passed into his arms. He could hear Milli and her father then, a smile growing on his face. He just told himself there was nothing to truly be worried over.
Milli was a little nervous about seeing her parents for the first time in forever, knowing full well it had been too long. Still, she was relieved to see them smiling brightly as she pulled up to the pick up zone and she got out to help with their bags. She hugged her father and mother tightly.
“Emilia! It’s been too long! Oh and are these my grandchildren?!” Her mother beamed and looked to Bradley and Evelyn. Her father chuckled a little at all the excitement and assured Milli he could manage the cases as they all bundled into the car.
It was a short drive home thankfully and Milli had been sure to set up the guest room for her parents, figuring that a hotel seemed pointless. She showed them inside and looked to Bradley, kissing his cheek softly.
“And where is the man of the hour, then?” Her father asked happily.
“Oh, Gareth, I’m sure he’s rushed off his feet.” Her mother chastised and rifled through some bags.
“Now, I know you said no fuss, but I simply had to bring you guys some stuff from Australia.” Alive said as she pulled out a special blanket for Evelyn and Bradley, one each.
Milli watched and smiled to herself as she put the kettle on and did some teas and coffees.
“Are you excited?” Her father asked as Alice bonded with the kids.
“Of course.” Milli said to him with a smile.
“You love him? He love you?” Gareth asked and Milli smiled at him with a nod.
Nathan couldn’t believe that the ceremony had come so soon and while he wasn’t really marrying Milli again, that wasn’t to say that he wasn’t nervous. He felt like the luckiest man very time that he looked at her. “I can’t wait to meet them either,” he said with a smile. Time was dwindling by and Nathan knew he would ahv to finish ting and get rweady. Michael was not going to allow him to be late. He kissed Milli and the kids goodbye before heading to shower and get dressed. Michael arrived on time of course and they headed toward the city. The good thing was that the hype around Nathan had died down which made for a private afternoon.
Still, he was sure it would leak afterwards about the cute private ceremony they’d have. H knew it would rally eat at Julia considering her wedding wasn’t for another few months – but he knew the hype would be much bigger surrounding hers with l lth celebrity bound to be there. Still, it’d be a kicker to know she hadn’t been invited.
An hour later Nathan was standing in the gray suit, adjusting the tie around his neck. He looked in the mirror.
“Gregory you are the master at this,” Michael said toward the grey-haired gentleman. The suit did fit Nathan perfectly. Still, it was a bit different for him. “How do you feel?” He asked Nathan, Gregory straightening out the legs some.
“I feel good – I’m nervous.” He admitted with a chuckle, for some reason now everything seemed so real. He was a married man with two kids – wow life had hit him quick. Milli was even contemplating having another baby, which he was certainly happy about.
“What’s to be nervous about? You’ve already got the girl.” Michael chuckled and patted him on the back.
The both of them had lunch in the city after Michael’s fitting and soon he was heading back to the cottage.
“They’re just boarding the last flight. They’ll be here soon.” Milli said as she looked to Nathan and smiled softly. She set Evelyn in her high chair and looked to Nathan when he mentioned his final fitting. She giggled softly,
“This is exciting.” She said to him softly, stealing a kiss from his lips as she got a yogurt for Evelyn who seemed content enough as she watched her parents.
“My parents are excited to meet the kids, and you of course.” She explained and smiled at the prospect. She knew her mother would want to spoil the kids rotten and her father would no doubt want to get to know Nathan. They weren’t the traditional sort of parents and seemed happy that Milli was loved and had settled herself.
Milli glanced for the time and smiled a little,
“I’ll take the kids to the airport while you get our fitting all sorted.” She said to Nathan as she tied her up, figuring he deserved a rest and no extra stress. She had been really nervous to meet his family so she figured he was the same. The last thing he needed was any extra stress.
Milli got the kids ready and got them settled in the car before looking to Nathan and brushing some of his hair out his face, smiling a little to him.
“I’ll see you soon.” She didn’t want him to rush or anything as she kissed him before getting in the car and heading down to the airport.
