I never thought I would ever get kidnapped, but after meeting Graham, a Mafia leader, I suppose everything is possible now. Even though the guys who kidnapped me were not so horrible, it made me wonder if being around Graham and having him in my life was a good or bad thing. There were times where I wondered if I hadn’t stopped to help Graham that day, would things be different. Would I have just gone about my life like I used to do before, and not have to worry about one of his enemies figuring out who I am to him?
It was a senseless worry, but I couldn’t help but feel that way. Especially after everything that has happened.
After those men that had kidnapped me proved their worth and became a part of the group, I couldn’t help but notice that there weren't any other occurrences really, and it seemed their Mafia life wasn’t just all about fighting and death. It brought down my worry, but when I learned the truth about something important, I knew I was going to have to tell Graham.
Finding Graham was easy enough since he spends a lot of time in his office working on things. He instantly looked up as I walked in, a big smile crossing his face. It was nice to see him drop everything just to greet me, to have always wanted to make me happy.
“Graham,” I whispered softly, feeling my heart thumping erratically in my chest.
His eyebrows furrowed slightly, recognizing the tone in my voice, “Evelyn, what’s the matter? Are you okay?”
Tears welled up in my eyes, but I just blurted it out, “Graham, I’m pregnant!”
I wasn’t sure how he would react if he would think it was too soon. I was on birth control, but it looks like it wasn’t very effective. I thought he would be angry.
“Really?” He yelled with joy, shooting up and rushing around the desk to hold my belly, pressing his forehead against mine, “you don’t know how happy that makes me, little one. I’ve loved you since the moment I laid eyes on you, and now I’m going to be a father!”
The L-word has never passed his lips before, and all I could do was cup his face, and whisper, “I love you, too, Graham.”
As I brought him down to kiss him, everything just fell into place. Graham could’ve died that day, but I was the Mafia Daddy’s Second Chance at a new life…
And I wouldn’t ever change that.
