'I can't believe you remembered." It was the day he had proposed for the first time. He wanted to know where I've always wanted to go. I told him I have always wanted to come to Brooklyn in the winter and see it snow. That was almost two years ago. "You like it?" "I love it! I can't believe you remembered!" I turned around and kissed him. "I love you Bruno." My cheeks were starting to hurt from smiling so hard. He took my hand and we got our bags and climbed into our awaiting limo. My face was glued to the window the whole entire time. Everything was glistening white. It was just so beautiful. I felt like such a kid because all I wanted to go do was flop down in it. He leaned over the seat and wrapped his arm around my waist. He rested his chin on my shoulder do he could look out the window with me. "Hold up. Stop right here." The driver pulled over and Bruno opened the door. I scurried out and the snow crunched under my feet. Something hit my arm and I jumped. Bruno was smiling and holding a snowball. I bent over and before I knew it we were in a full blown snowball fight right there in the middle of downtown. Cameras started gathering but it didn't stop us. I ran for cover behind a tree but my foot slipped out from under me and I hit the ground. I just laid there, looking up at the snow slowly falling, until Bruno came and scooped me up newlywed style. Snow was stuck to the side of his face where I had hit him. I gently brushed it off and kissed him. I pulled his bottom lip and he moaned a little. He looked at me with those big brown eyes that were so easy to get lost in and said, "Let's get you home." He carried me back into the taxi and told him where to go. We pulled up to a beautiful looking hotel and gathered our things. Bruno handed them to a man who was going to take them up to our room. "This is amazing!" It was a huge hotel. Restaurants were lined up side by side and small shops were littered everywhere. He took my hand and kissed it. "Let's go." We walked into the glass elevator and rode it to the top floor. When the door reopened he started pulling me down the hall. "You ready for this?" I nodded my head in anticipation. He twisted the door handle and walked in. "Oh my god!" I gasped. Red and white roses were everywhere in the room and candles were lit on every corner. "Now I have you all to myself." He attacked me and I smiled. "Be gentle with me, it's been awhile." He was everything but gentle.
1 month later
We were back in Los Angeles now. It felt good being back into routine with Alexis. Brandi found out she was 16 weeks along but they were worried about the baby because it was so small. I started work last week and it's been really fun. I never thought I'd enjoy a job like this as much as I have. It was quieter during the day now. Bruno was busy in the studio working on his second album. He was leaving for Brazil today and honestly, I was terrified. It didn't help either that I felt like crap. I couldn't stop eating, I swear I was shoving something into my face every 5 seconds. "Kassie? You okay baby?" I looked at Bruno whilst shoving Oreos in my mouth. "I'm fine." "You sure? You don't look so good." "I'm fine. Just a little tired. Write any new songs?" "Naw not really. Where's Alexis?" "She's asleep." He walked off and came back a few seconds later. "Is everything packed Bru?" "Yeah I think so." I shook my head and sighed, that meant he most likely forgot something. I walked into our bedroom and stared at his suitcase in horror. It looked like he took his closet and shoved it into his suitcase! "Bruno did you fold any of this?" "Yeah." He wrapped his arms around my waist and kissed my shoulder. "Okay close that thing and get it out of my house before I go OCD and repack all of that. Go." He zipped it up and put it in the playroom. A huge black bus pulled up and the guys came running out like little kids. "Yo Bruz let's go dawg!" "Shut up Kameron!" I hissed. "Alexis is sleeping." "Sorry, sorry." Bruno came dragging his suit case out and Eric took it out to the bus after giving me a hug. Everyone did the same and said their goodbyes until it was just me and Bruno left. I could feel tears burning in my eyes, I was so scared. "Hey, don't cry. It's going to be okay. I'm going to come back. I promise. I'm not going to leave you again. Okay?" I nodded my head and a tear fell. He wiped it away with his thumb and kissed me. "I'll call you in the morning okay?" I nodded my head. "I love you Kassandra." He kissed me again. "I love you too Bru." I could see. The tears well up in his eyes as the turned and walked out the door. That night I crawled into bed alone and tossed and turned. I managed to get about 3 hours of sleep before the phone rang. I jumped out of bed and ran into the kitchen. "Hello?" "Hey baby." His voice was raspy and it gave me chills. "Hows Brazil?" "Its beautiful. I wish you two could be here." I smiled. "I wish I could be too but I have to take Alexis to the doctors and I have to go get her new medications." "More?" I bit my lip, maybe I should just tell him the truth. "Actually, he doesn't have asthma or underdeveloped lungs. She has a type of autism called Aspergers." "Kassandra! What the f-! Why didn't you tell me!? What the f-!" "I didn't think you would honesty stick around! I didn't want you to know so you wouldn't feel bad and think it was your fault but then she started talking and I thought you'd figure it out! Didn't you honestly think that a 7 month old could say all the words she can?" It grew silent on the other end of the line. "It's not your fault Bruno. It's nothing you did wrong." The line clicked. He was gone. My fears seemed to be turning into reality. I slammed the phone down and got into the shower. I changed into a pair of shorts and a black and white stripped shirt. I slid a pair of white nikes on and curled my hair. I put a black beanie on and did a smokey eye. I woke Alexis up and gave her a quick bath. I put a skirt and a pink shirt on her and brushed her brown curls before scooping her up and putting her into the car. I turned on the radio and pulled out of the driveway. "Good morning! It's January 28th-" "F-!" I thought it was only the first week in January! I'm 2 months late!
