Excerpt:

“So what can I do for you?” Landon asked, after they had taken a seat. “Why does a beautiful, sexy young woman have to hang out in a Chinese Restaurant she hates looking for me?”

“Maybe because you’re the only man that ever made me feel beautiful and sexy,” she smiled. “I miss you.”

“Oh,” Landon uttered, with his eyes wide with shock.

“I know that probably sounds odd considering how things ended between us, but I’ve been thinking about you quite a bit lately. I just wanted to know how you are, what you’ve been up to, if you’ve met anybody . . . you know, all that good stuff. More than anything I was hoping you and I could be friends again. I really do miss you, Landon.”

“I miss you too, Gabrielle, and I’d love it if we could be cool again. It’s not a nice feeling knowing you have enemies in the world.”

“I’m not your enemy, Landon.”

“Well, I’m glad to hear it.”

They talked for nearly an hour over lunch catching up on each other’s lives. And although Landon was enjoying himself, he couldn’t let go of the feeling that Gabrielle wanted something from him and had yet to say what it was.

“So do you have any pictures of your son?”

“Yes, I do,” Gabrielle beamed. “You really want to see them?”

“Girl, let me see the pictures and quit tripping.”

“Okay,” she smiled then pulled out a small photo album from her purse.

“As a matter of fact,” Landon said, as he reached in his back pocket for his wallet, “I’ve got pictures to show you too.” They swapped photos and both smiled. “Oh my goodness, Gabrielle, this boy looks just like you!” he said of the bright skinned, big brown eyed toddler. “He’s beautiful.”

“Thank you, Landon. And look at these gorgeous kids here. I can’t believe how big Dane is now. He’s such a little man. I can totally tell how much he loves these angels. He looks very protective of them.”

“Oh yeah, Dane will kill you if you mess with his girls. And they love him to death. It’s sickening,” Landon laughed.

“Check you out . . . the proud uncle whipping out pictures.”

“What can I say? I love those little monsters. But that baby girl has some kind of power over me. She be having me jump through all kinds of hoops for her. All she has to do is bat those little hazel eyes at me and I turn into a big ole pile of mush.”

“Just like her mom, huh?”

“What?” Landon frowned. “What do you mean?”

“I never told you but I used to be extremely jealous of Jade. She had your heart in a way I never could,” Gabrielle admitted. “I always thought you had a thing for her.”

“Are you serious?”

“Yep.”

“Wow, I don’t even know what to say to that.”

“There’s nothing to say. It was probably just my insecurities anyway. I mean, who wouldn’t be jealous of Jade. She’s exquisite.”

“Oh, my, exquisite, huh? She’d love to hear that. Well, I’m sure she hears it everyday from that husband of hers. He’s probably more in love with her now than when they first met. It’s just the sweetest, most sugary mess you’ll ever see in your life! Those two are nauseating,” he laughed.

“I’m really happy for her, though. Jade went through a lot and I’m glad she found her prince . . . a little jealous maybe, but glad.”

“Girl please, I’m sure you’ve got the fellas lining up for you. You don’t have to be jealous.”

“Yeah right, they’re kicking down my door.”

Landon and Gabrielle stared at each other in silence for a few seconds before he spoke.

“So do you think you’ll have more kids?”

“Oooh, I don’t know. I mean, I love Darrell and all but . . .”

“You love who?” Landon asked, with his eyes wide as saucers.

“Oh, my son’s name is Darrell.”

“I don’t know whether to be flattered or scared.”

“Why would you be scared?”

“Come on, Gabrielle, you have to admit that’s kind of bizarre. Why would you choose my middle name to call your son?”

“It’s not just your middle name.”

“What do you mean?”

“My son’s full name is Darrell Landon Campbell.”

Landon stared at her with his mouth opened. “I don’t understand. We both know I’m not his father so why would you name him after me? I mean, I would think the way things ended with us would make you not wanna say my name let alone give it to your son,” Landon stated, still shocked. “What did you family have to say about that?”

“Nothing much. They just think he’s named after his dad.”

“What?” Landon shrieked. “So let me get this straight. Instead of telling your family that you screwed around and got pregnant by somebody else you let them believe that I divorced you and abandoned my own child? Is that what you’re saying, Gabrielle? Your family thinks Darrell is my son?”

“He is your son, Landon.”

“What the hell are you talking about, Gabrielle? You know damn well it’s not possible for him to be my son! What kind of game are you playing?”

Thankfully Landon and Gabrielle were the only two diners in the restaurant otherwise he would’ve caused a huge scene.
