5.5 Feeling alone

Estevan watched as Dawn got dressed, “Where do you think you are going?”
“I’m going out…” Estevan interrupted her, “You were told bed rest…” Dawn tried pleading with her husband, “But…but…”

“Dawn get back to bed. The doctor told you yesterday you were over doing things,” He hated having to do this but didn’t want to lose the baby and over the last few weeks Dawn had become more tired and slow. Estevan had made sure he was there for the appointment with the doctor because he knew something was wrong and when he heard all the advice that was given he was furious that Dawn was still pushing herself. 

Dawn weakly tried to protest as she shouted, “I’m 18 weeks pregnant not dead.”
“Dawn you are 18 weeks but you are carrying a vampire and the pregnancy will progress faster than if it was a human baby…” Dawn hated feeling so low and dependent on Estevan and screamed at him while throwing things at him, “All you care about is this baby. I’m stuck here on my own, while you go to work and you promised to help me through this pregnancy. You give me blood packs I’m supposed to have but I hate the taste. You don’t give me your blood or your company, why?” 

Estevan saw the frustration in her eyes and the heart felt emotions in her words as she fell to the floor. He had been working a lot and now felt guilty at leaving Dawn at this vulnerable time. 

He held her and said, “I’m sorry, I did promise you on honeymoon I’d lavish you attention and all I did was work.” He cupped her face and placed a kiss on her lips, “I’ll stay home and take bed rest with you.”
Dawn looked shocked, “But you don’t need to rest…”Estevan cut her off, “True but I also run my own business so I’m fortunate enough to have time off when I need it. Blair can run things for a while.” Feeling elated that he was staying with her, Dawn asked, “How is the new house coming along?”
“Well thanks to your design it’s getting there. The contractors are doing a great job.”
“Don’t you think it’s a bit much?”
“Blake didn’t have a big wedding and I was pissed at first but after Blair finally told me, I rang and hearing how happy Lexy was, was what I needed to hear. She didn’t know what she wanted for a wedding gift so I thought of a new house on the beach; I think they will love it.”

Dawn held her stomach, “Estevan the baby kicked again.” He put his arms around Dawn and said, “She loves her Dad.”
“We don’t know if the baby is a boy or a girl yet.”
“I have two boys and now I want a girl, don’t you?”
“As long as the baby is healthy then I don’t care.” After a while they were locked in each other’s arms sharing a passionate kiss and Estevan voiced, “Our baby likes it when you are happy.” Dawn smiled back and replied, “I’m glad you are here.”

Ty finally had time off to study when he saw Harmony he quickly packed up his things and ran after her, “Hay.”
Harmony looked at him and said coldly, “Yes!”

“I’m Ty the boy you kneed the other night after you wouldn’t give me your name.” 
Harmony rolled her eyes, “Ah yes Ty….go away.” 

She turned to walk away but stopped dead in her tracks when Ty asked, “Go on a date with me.” 
Harmony had waited for this moment to be asked out and it was being spoilt by Ty. “I’m seeing someone.”
Ty could feel his temper rising but kept calm, “Who are you seeing?”
Harmony was trying to think of a good answer when Ty said, “There is no-one, is there?”
She looked at him and coldly answered, “You’re not my type.”
“What is your type?”

“Not you…I mean look at you, your hair is a mess, and you wear makeup and those clothes…” 

Ty had heard enough and shouted, “You are basing your view of me on how I look. Here is what I see. You may be beautiful I’d go even as far as to say gorgeous…” He had Harmony’s attention now as he continued, “…but your personality doesn’t match. You are self-centred spoilt brat,” Ty then walked away still upset she couldn't see the person underneath.

When Harmony got home she heard the piano playing and knew instantly where her Dad was. She ran in and asked as calmly as she could, “Dad, why do you call Mum gorgeous?”

Blair turned to look at his daughter with suspicion but answered her, “I see your Mum as the most beautiful woman in the world and no words would ever be accurate enough to describe her. So I just decided one day to call her gorgeous and haven’t stopped. I only call her by her name when I’m angry at her.”

Harmony walked away happy before he could question her further. She rang her friend, “You are not going to believe this but a boy called me beautiful. He even said the word gorgeous.” Harmony was on cloud nine as she told her friend about the incident. 

Teddy stood in the doorway watching the beaming smile across her daughter’s face and then closed the door.
“Was I right?” Teddy looked at Blair, “Almost…”
“What’s the boy’s name?” 

Teddy stood her ground and firmly said, “Let Harmony have her moment. Do you have any idea what it means to a teenage girl to hear those words beautiful and gorgeous?  It means a lot. She is not dating the boy so you have nothing to worry about.” 

Blair was about to say more when Teddy walked off to deal with Draco and she shouted back, “I mean it Blair leave it alone.”


  1. Harmony was rather rude, wasn't she? But she was thrilled inside. I hope her speaking of his appearance was an awkward moment. She must like something about Ty because she accepted that he called her beautiful. If she really thought he was mud on her shoe, she would have just laughed and been done with it. Big bad Blair should listen to his wife. ;)

    1. Zhippidy,

      Harmony was rude but only stopped being that way when even though she was being rude he said something nice. Now she wants to know him hehe.
      Blair should listen to his wife but will he?

      Thanks for reading :)

  2. I see a huge fight getting ready to happen, because I don't think Blair is going to listen to his wife.

    1. Pinky,

      Blair in a fight lol I wouldn't be surprised but I hope he listens to Teddy.

      Thanks for reading :)

  3. Yeah right. Like he's really going to leave it alone.

    I don't get Harmony. Yeah, she's rude. One second she's all pissy at him and then the next she's calling her bff to tell her what Ty said.
    As for Ty: sorry, dude, but people are GOING to judge you by how you look. That's just how it happens.

    1. Mypalsim,

      Harmony is a teenager who doesn't think lol. She only paid attention when he said something nice typical girl. Ty doesn't like being judged but at that age you are always getting judge on your looks. Hopefully he has a thick skin soon.

      Blair leave this I can't see that happening :)

      Thanks for reading :)

  4. Harmony is on cloud nine! Maybe now she will see past TJ's appearance and give him a chance. If Blair thinks he's going to keep her away from boys, he is so wrong! If he interferes then that will make her start to hide a part of her life from him, and that is definitely not what he wants to happen! He does need to listen to Teddie. After all, he's never been a teenaged girl, and Teddie has! Typical father! LOL

    I hope that Harmony didn't hurt TJ's feelings too badly. He seems to have had a hard life.

    Glad that Estevan is going to be there for Dawn now. I guess he didn't realize how much time he was spending away from her.

    1. Daisies,

      Blair wants to wrap her up in cotton wool but he also has to learn to let go. Teddy is right he needs to leave Harmony alone but Blair might not just yet hopefully he won't lose her. Harmony was rude to Ty but hopefully he will still talk to her after this.
      Estevan forgot how hard this is on Dawn but hopefully things will get back on track now he's home.

      Thanks for reading :)

  5. That wasn't nice of Harmony to speak to Ty like that, sure she judged him based on his appearance, but she didn't need to be so scathing about it. I really hope this was a one time occurance and she doesn't go around treating people like dirt. She better hope Ty has a thick skin, because after the way she treated him, I don't think he should go after her again.

    1. Val,

      Ty really likes her so for her he will have a thick skin but she won't get away with talking to people like that, not forever anyway. Thing is Ty won't give up on her.

      Thanks for reading :)
