Nature Vs Nurture Part 94
…“Never be sorry, Nina. I don’t mind waiting for you, I know you needed sometime.” Vlad said, sliding the chair, closer to her….
…“Come on now,” Vlad said, Nina looked up and saw him smiling at her. “I couldn’t ever leave without saying goodbye to my two favorite girls in my life.”…
…“Yes, but more like me confessing my undying love for you.” Vlad said, kissing her hands as he smiled at her…
“Nina, I meant what I said to you before. I did fall in love with you the moment I heard your name. I thought what were the chances I would meet a girl, with a name that fit mine.“Vlad said, as he stroke her hands with his thumbs.
“Then when I saw you look at me, my heart started to race, which never happened to me before. Then when you were talking to me, my mind went blank, I was just gone. If it wasn’t for my alarm going off, I would have stood their like an idiot lost in your untame beauty.” Vlad said smiling at her.
“But there was one thing I didn’t mean, though. Remember when you asked what I plan to do with you and I said I had no idea?” Vlad said and Nina nodded.
“My plan was to keep you with me and get to know you. I wanted you to see a different side of me, that I didn’t even know I had till I saw you. I was hoping if I did get the courage to open up to you, you would fall in love with me too. And I have to say, I’m so very glad you did Nina. You have change me life around and for the better. And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Vlad said, standing back up and taking her with him.
“I love you Nina. I love you and Athena, unconditionally. Even if you didn’t fall in love with me, I would still be here doing all this for you, because of the love I have for you. I will now and forever protect both with you with everything I have and am.” Vlad said, leaning his head down towards her, taking her lips with his.
…“I will come back, Nina. One way or another I’ll come back for you two.” Vlad said, moving one hand to her face. Tracing his thumb along her jaw line. “I will return, my lady.”…
Vlad lean down again and kiss her. He lower his hand to her stomach, placing his hand on her baby bump.
…“Now if you excuse me, Nina. I need to talk to our daughter.” Vlad said, smiling as she nodded. He kneel back down and press his lips against her stomach….
“Athena, my little one. I want you to be good for your mom. Don’t keep her up all night and don’t make her crave tons of sweet. Yes I know you both enjoy eating them, but I want both of you to be healthy. I’ll be back soon, so don’t worry about your dad. I love you Athena.” Vlad said, kissing her baby bump. He stood back up and looked at Nina.
“As for you my lady, please try not to worry about anything. Eat, rest and be happy, while I’m gone. I’ll call you from time to time to check up on you two.” Vlad said, reaching into his pocket and grabbing a phone out.
…“A course I do my lady.” Vlad said, smiling at her. “Now go back inside Nina and join the others. I’ll see you soon. I love you.” Vlad said, kissing her one more time before he let her go….
She never told him how she love the way he expressed himself to her. She never said, how every word, sounded so truthful. She never said how much she love the way he talked to Athena. She never told him, how she felt a piece of her lift when he took off.
…“I’ll talk to you till the sun comes up, if you need me to.” Vlad said, blowing her a kiss and she blow one back….
….“Good morning, my lady. I know your most likely still asleep, so don’t worry about missing this text. I wanted to wish you two a good day. Also I wanted to say thank you for the picture. I have to admit, I was suprise you did it, put I’m really glad you did. It helped me sleep better, if you know what I mean, 😉. My phone is going to be off while I search, so don’t worry about replying back, unless you want to. I’ll call you later on tonight my lady. I love you and Athena both, very much. Have a good day, bye my lady. 😘-Love Vlad.”…
…“Good evening my lady and my little one. I got your messages and your beautiful picture. Even in photos, you still breath taking as ever, Nina. Please join me on Skype again. I would like hear your angelic voice and see your gorgeous face.”…
…“Nina, you remember what you told me at the hotel? About how the Count was willing to sacrifice his humanity to save his people?” Vlad said and Nina nodded….
…“I’m willing to sacrifice my humanity for you and Athena. I’ll sacrifice it a 100 times over if need be, my lady. It’s just like what you also said, being able to come back from it, if you do bad things for good reasons. I just pray, I can find away back to you and Athena.” Vlad said, as Nina looked back up at him….
…“Thank you Nina. But I believe your wrong about the strongest person part, that’s you my lady.” Vlad said, smiling at her….
…“I love you too Nina.” Vlad said, as he mimic her motions. “I miss you and Athena terribly, Nina. I knew I would miss you, but it… it….”
….“Your my first realtionship and first woman I ever loved.” Vlad said, with a shy smile….
….“Yeah, but I’m not the usual guy. I’m just…different.” Vlad said, letting out a sigh….
….“Your sure, you like my different?” Vlad said, titling his head to the side….
…“Nina please don’t cry, my lady. I’m not upset that you think that way. I understand completely, I really do. Like I told you before, I don’t expect you to trust me. Trust, is something I got to earn and I hope in time, I do earn that trust.” Vlad said, giving her a small smile….
….“There is nothing to forgive, but if you need to hear it. Then yes, I do forgive you Nina. I want you to know something, okay?” Vlad said and Nina nodded her head….
….“I want you to know, despite what I have done, the people I hurt and killed. I’ll will never ever, I mean ever, lay my hands on you like that. I wouldn’t rise my hands or my voice at you, Nina. No matter if we need up arguing like other couples do, I will not harm you. I hope one day, you can believe these words I speak to you.” Vlad said, as he tear up a bit, when he saw Nina crying….
….“I like I said, your the first woman I ever and will ever love. I would never dream of hurting you like Max has. I would rather die first before I let that thought even cross my mind. I love you, Nina. I love you with everything I am and everything I will be. I’ll always protect you now and till the end of my days. You and Athena are my everything, my life, my world, my very reason for exists. I would gladly die for both of you.” Vlad said, as he put his head down, so Nina wouldn’t see him cry….
….“You just being with me and standing by my side, after everything I’ve done and said, is more than words can say. You have proven your love for me, just by expecting me for who I am. Allowing me, to be with you, love you, and be the father of your unborn child, is all I ever need from you. That is something, I can’t thank you enough for, Nina. You came into my life and brought me hope. That hope brought me back once and I know it will again.” Vlad said, looking back up at her…..
….“Now…” Vlad said, pausing for a bit. “ You damn well know that was just a nightmare and would never come true, since we’re having a girl.” With a low chuckle, to lighten the mood a bit…
….“I know my lady, I know. But on a serious note, I want you to know and remember. I will never threaten you with our daughter, no matter what happens between us. Like I said before, you can leave whenever you want to, my lady. I will not stop you and make you stay, if your not happy with me. Though it would hurt me and pain me so, to see you leave, Nina. It would just kill me to keep you with me and see you unhappy.” Vlad said, tearing up a bit…
….“Your welcome, my lady. Don’t be sorry at all for that, Nina. I’m just glad you talked to me about this. Next time something is upsetting you, Nina, let me know. I will not be upset with you or with anything you have to say. So please don’t worry about it, my lady. I love you Nina, you and Athena, with everything I am and I will be.” Vlad said, turning on his car….
…“Nina I was lost in my thoughts again. I was thinking about us, about that dream I’ve been having. I wish I did get on that bus and met you sooner. I hate that I regret that and I hate that you had to go through hell, all alone. But I know now, can’t keep living in the past, when my future is a front of me. You and Athena are my future, my lady. So despite what happened in the past, we have each other now. That, is something I would never change in all this world for. I love you and Athena dearly, my lady. I am troubling sorry for your friends and what’s going on. But, we’re here for you my lady. I’ll take care of this and I’ll be home with you and Athena. I love you, Nina. I love you my little one. Good night and I’ll speak to you soon.”….
She never told him, that she cried every night that he was away. She never told him, she held a photo of him when she went to bed. She never told him, that she knew how to word her feeling better.
