'My meeting ran late' Gerard whispered back as he made sure his phone was on silent 'these are great seats.'
'That's why we got here early' Bob retorted getting the video camera ready to capture his baby cousin's performance.
'Well we're here now' Cheyenne said 'everything is fine.'
'I'm not here' Frank whispered directly in her ear 'I'm still in the living room having sex with you' he saw her body tense and he smiled 'I'll join you guys when the play starts.'
They didn't have to wait too long before the lights dimmed and the curtain rose. Gerard sat up straighter not wanting to miss one second of his daughter's performance. He smiled the entire way through the production there were no words that could express how proud he was of Jasmine, she was fantastic and he wondered if his parents felt the same way when they watched him perform. The applause was deafening as Jasmine and her classmates took a final bow. She waved and blew kisses to her family who were without a doubt the loudest in the auditorium as they applauded, between Ray and Frank’s piercing whistles and Alicia screaming ‘woo’ you couldn’t really hear anybody else and Jasmine was pleased.
‘Uncle Bob, Uncle Bob did you see me, did you see?’ Jasmine squealed as she threw herself into Bob’s arms. She had run from back stage area as soon as her teacher had allowed still dressed in her costume.
‘Of course I saw. I filmed it’ he grinned kissing her cheek ‘you were fantastic Mini’
‘Really?’ she asked her eyes alight with a thousand stars.
‘Definitely you outshone everyone else’ he told her ‘you were the best.’
The rest of the family crowded round her lavishing words of praise at her and Jasmine couldn’t stop the happy grin that adorned her angelic face.
‘What say we go for ice cream to celebrate’ Gerard announced pulling her into his arms. Jasmine all but screamed her approval and Cheyenne and the others nodded in agreement not yet wanting to end Jasmine’s big evening.
They headed to the nearest ice cream parlour with what seemed like every other family that had a student in Jasmine’s year, the place was heaving.
Ray managed to find them a table and three of the group grabbed extra chairs and they all squeezed together. While they ordered Gerard and Cheyenne did the social things talking to parents they recognised about the production and how well their kids had done.
‘Now don’t get me wrong’ Mikey said speaking to Jasmine ‘it was a fine play and a good effort from all of the kids but it was no Peter Pan.’
Laughter broke out around the table as Gerard choked on his drink, the colour of embarrassment showing clearly on his pale cheeks.
‘What are you talking about?’ Jasmine asked tugging at Mikey’s sleeve ‘Why are you all laughing?’
‘Well sweetie’ Frank said from across the table ‘once upon a time your daddy was in a production of Peter Pan.’
‘Really?’ Jasmine asked her eyes lighting up ‘you were Peter Pan' she asked speaking to her father directly
Yes' Gerard admitted kicking Mikey under the table he watched his brother scowl and he felt a small prick of satisfaction 'It was forever ago Mini'
'Is it on tape' she asked hopefully 'I wanna see.'
'It is on tape but your daddy hid it' Ray chimed in scooping a spoonful of ice cream from the massive sundae that had just arrived.
'Why, Daddy?' Jasmine wailed looking at him with horror struck eyes she couldn't fathom why any one would hide a video of themselves performing on stage.
'Because Daddy was wearing green tights' Bob laughed 'like a girl'
'Daddy was wearing girl tights?' Jasmine giggled hysterically.
They all joined in Jasmine's laughter while Gerard watched them all with an amused look on his face.
'Alright laugh it up you clowns' Gerard retorted 'I'm made leaps and bounds since then'
'Yeah now you wear feather boas too' Frank chuckled 'pink ones at that'
Gerard picked an M&M off the sundae and threw it at Frank, he felt great delight as the chocolate covered nut hit his friend right between the eyes.
'Ow' Frank complained rubbing his head.
'Okay you two enough' Alicia giggled rubbing her belly 'you're getting the bump all worked up'
'Yeah Alicia's right' Cheyenne piped in 'stop fooling around and eat up its an early night tonight'
'Oh yeah' Gerard grinned pulling her into his arms and kissing her full on the lips 'I like the sound of that.'
'Not in front of the babies' Mikey cried covering Alicia's hand on her stomach and Jasmine's eyes.
Gerard laughed and pulled back but he kept his arm around Cheyenne holding him gently to her.
'We're having an early night because I have an early start tomorrow cooking a massive Thanksgiving banquet for all of you' Cheyenne explained in hope of wiping the upset look off of Frank's face.
'So why am I having an early night?' Gerard asked with a groan
'The house isn't going to clean itself.' Cheyenne told him 'I'll need your help.'
'You and I both know I'll only get in the way' Gerard told her 'I'm a hindrance not a help'
'I can help' Alicia chimed in
'No thanks tubby' Cheyenne laughed 'you'll def just get in the way.'
'Oh how dare you?' Alicia gasped 'I'm not that big' she pouted then laughed 'I can help'
'Ok' Cheyenne said laughed 'come over when you're ready.'
'I can help too' Frank said 'if you need it.'
'I'd appreciate that, thank you Frank' Cheyenne said giving him a smile.
'Oh God Cajun turkey delicious' Ray teased
'With Cajun gravy' Gerard laughed
'Hey I can cook now' Frank cried looking at them both ' I can! Chey tell them I can cook'
'He can cook now' she admitted and she met Frank's eye knowing he was thinking about the evening they shared not too long ago.
'See' Frank grinned covering Jasmine's eyes and giving Gerard and Ray the finger.
The banter continued as they demolished the sundae and they all said their good byes in the parking lot each of them looking forward to the following day.
Thanksgiving morning dawned cold and miserable but that didn’t shake Cheyenne’s excitement. She used to hate Thanksgiving but since having Jasmine she’d had four good ones in a row and she knew this year would be her fifth. She woke up as usual, showered, changed and headed straight for the kitchen to start the day.
Gerard woke up a little while after, he was excited about the day too. He had a such a good feeling about it. He brushed his teeth, washed his face and headed down to the kitchen in his pyjamas to get under her feet. He stopped at the kitchen and watched as she sang along to the radio whilst getting breakfast ready and he couldn’t help but smile.
‘Hello there Mr Way’ Cheyenne said sensing his presence
‘Hello there Miss Bryar’ Gerard said walking over to her and snaking his arms around her waist placing a kiss on the back of her neck.
‘You sleep alright?’ Cheyenne asked as she reached for a cup and poured him a fresh cup of coffee.
‘Perfectly’ he admitted ‘always fine when you’re next to me’
‘Aww’ Cheyenne said turning in his arms to face him. She looked into his eyes and saw nothing but pure happiness and she felt her stomach drop as she thought about the time she was spending and the things she was doing with Frank.
‘I love you’ Gerard whispered and he leaned in and captured her lips. Cheyenne melted into him loving the feel of his soft lips on hers, she opened her mouth and felt Gerard’s tongue and her insides exploded into millions of dancing butterflies. It felt so good to kiss him like this, to get completely lost in the moment.
‘I love you too Gerard Way’ she said smiling as their heads rested together. ‘Now go take a shower you smell’
‘Way to revel in the romance honey’ Gerard laughed kissing her once more before releasing her. Cheyenne laughed and handed him his coffee.
‘It’s going to be a good day ’ he said as he walked out of the kitchen. ‘Today’s going to be great.’
‘So Jamia’s not coming huh’ Alicia said the disappointment ripe in her voice. She'd been helping Cheyenne for the last hour taking over for Frank who'd been helping Cheyenne since mid-morning.
‘She said she was going to spend it with her family’ Cheyenne said sadly, she missed her friend but she wasn’t sure if she’d be able to face her after carrying on the way she had been with Frank.
‘Maybe we can visit this weekend’ Alicia said hopefully ‘would you come with?’
‘Of course I would’ Cheyenne said wincing internally ‘we can drag Christa along too maybe take the little ones, we can have a girl day.’
‘Awesome’ Alicia said smiling ‘here potatoes are done’ she said handing the bowl of peeled potatoes to Cheyenne. 'what's next?'
They heard the doorbell ring and Cheyenne knew it was Lyn and Marcus arriving with Paige. They had agreed to drop her off and come back for dinner as they wanted to catch up with some friends. Cheyenne really wasn’t fussed about their plans all she cared about was that Gerard had his allocated time with his daughter. Lyn and Marcus could jump off a cliff for all she cared.
‘Hi Cheyenne!’ Paige squealed running towards her.
‘Paige stop’ Lyn commanded and the little girl instantly came to a halt. Cheyenne froze wondering what was happening but when she looked down at Paige’s chocolate covered face and body she understood.
‘Sorry’ Lyn said taking Paige’s hand in hers ‘chocolate milkshake spilt all over her.’
‘No worries’ Cheyenne said with a smile ‘you wanna clean her up?’
‘Yes please she looks horrid’ Lyn stated.
‘Na uh she looks delicious' Alicia laughed getting down off the stool she was perched on and rushing over to Paige ‘chocolate is my favourite.’ She said placing kisses all over the girl's cheeks making her giggle. ‘I’m going to eat you up.’
‘No Alicia’ Paige squealed ‘you haven’t had your dinner you only get dessert after dinner.’
All three women laughed admiring the girls smarts.
‘You can use Jasmine’s room second door when you go up the stairs, bathroom at the end of the hall.’
‘Can’t use the bathroom’ Ray jumped in. He had come to get another beer ‘Frank’s taking a shower.’
‘Why's he in our shower?’ Cheyenne asked shaking her head
‘He said he wanted to change as he had been helping to cook’ Alicia replied
‘That's fair I guess’ Cheyenne agreed. Turning to Lyn she said ‘you can use mine and Gerard’s room to change Paige first door at the top of the stairs we have an en suite.’
‘Thanks we'll be down in a minute’ she said dragging Paige away form Alicia.
Frank wrapped the towel around his body and headed for Gerard’s room. He felt refreshed after his shower and he was feeling good. He actually liked helping Alicia and Cheyenne with the cooking, he had learned a few things as well as spending time with Cheynne. He ran along the hallway half naked and raced into Gerard's room closing the door before he noticed Lyn dressing Paige.
‘Oops sorry’ he said blushing his back against the door.
‘Wow Uncle Frank’s got lots of drawing like daddy’ Paige cried pointing at his torso.
‘They’re called tattoos Paige’ Lyn said helping her daughter into a fresh pair of jeans. 'You know that.'
‘Oh yeah' Paige remembered 'Can I go now?’ she asked as Lyn buttoned her jeans.
‘Yes you may go’ Lyn replied and Paige raced to the door stopping to kiss Frank.
‘You have more tattoos than I remember’ Lyn said speaking to him as he ruffled Paige’s hair. He opened the door for her as he replied.
‘Well yeah it has been a while since we slept together.’ He laughed. He made sure Paige was out of the room before he closed the door again.
‘So long time no talk huh?’ Lyn said sitting on the bed ‘how are you?’
‘Fine’ Frank said knowing what she was referring too. She was the only one who knew he was in love with his best friend's girlfriend
‘And things with Cheyenne?’ Lyn asked
‘Couldn’t be better’ he grinned
‘Meaning you’re over her?’ Lyn asked naively
‘More like under her’ Frank giggled
Lyn gasped as Frank walked around the other side of the bed, she knew better than to turn around knowing he was dressing but she couldn’t believe what she just heard.
‘Oh my God are you having an affair?’ Lyn asked
‘Affair such a seedy word’ Frank frowned ‘we love each other, we’re in love with each other.’
‘Oh Frank’ Lyn sighed ‘what are you doing?’
‘I know’ he sighed pulling on his boxer shorts ‘please don’t lecture me.’
‘Gerard is your best friend’ Lyn retorted ‘how could you do this to him?’
‘I can’t help it’ Frank said sitting on the bed and putting on a fresh pair of socks ‘I love her I want to be with her.’
‘Then she should leave Gerard and be with you’ Lyn said angrily ‘she shouldn’t be cheating on him.’
‘This is rich coming from you’ Frank snapped ‘you get knocked up and married and all of a sudden you’re a saint.’
‘Ouch Frank’ Lyn said feeling the harsh sting of his words.
‘Shit Lyn I’m sorry’ Frank said his voice genuine. He didn’t have to see her face to know that he’s hurt her ‘I didn’t mean that.’
‘Whatever’ Lyn said rising from the bed ‘all I’m saying is that you need to be careful you know what something like this could do to Gerard and he’s doing so well.’
‘What do you want me to do?’ Frank sighed ‘you want me to tell him outright, you want me to confess. Tell me what I should do’
Lyn shrugged ‘stay away from her until she leaves him.’
‘I can’t’ Frank cried pulling on his black t-shirt
‘Can’t or won’t’ Lyn said turning to face him not caring if he was decent
‘Won’t’ he stated ‘I won’t stay away from her. Gerard’s not going to find out.’
‘You can’t hide this forever Frank.’ Lyn told him battling to control her voice and the anger that was coursing through her.
‘I won’t have to she’ll leave him’ he said
‘And she’s told you that has she?’ Lyn snapped ‘she’s said to you that she’s going to leave him.’
‘Well, no not exactly’ Frank faltered ‘But I know she will. She’s not playing me Lyn I know that’s what you think.’
‘I think you’re making a huge mistake risking your friendship with Gerard for her.’ Lyn said ‘even if she left him for you and Gerard accepted it, which is a long shot, your friendship will be strained but to have him find out you’ve been together behind his back, he’d never forgive you.’
‘He won’t find out’ Frank said shaking his head
‘These things always get found out’ Lyn hissed ‘and I know you know that. You and Cheyenne need to talk, either she leaves him or you leave her alone.’
‘She confused’ Frank defended her ‘she’s in a tough position.’
‘and so are you Frank’ Lyn said ‘you’re putting yourself on the line, you’re risking too much. If he finds out he may forgive her they’re bound by a child but you and Gerard only have the bonds of brotherhood and friendship and that can be easily broken and irreparable. She needs to make a decision and you need to push her to make one.’
‘What if she chooses him?’ Frank whispered ‘I can’t-I won’t- I wouldn’t know how to handle it. I love her so much, she's everything I want.’
‘If she chooses him then that’s the way its supposed to be’ Lyn said
‘She’s meant to be with me I know it’ Frank growled ‘I feel it.’
‘Then she’ll pick you’ Lyn said ‘what’s meant to be will be but you gotta make her choose Frank before it all goes wrong'
'I know' Frank sighed heavily 'you're right. I'll talk to her.'
‘Drink your tea its getting cold’ Jasmine said to Paige from across her play table.
Paige looked down at the empty flowery cup in her hand that was filled with imaginary tea and sighed.‘I don’t feel like drinking tea.’ She muttered
‘What’s the matter?’ Jasmine asked picking up Cha Cha bear off the seat next to her.
‘What does slept together mean?’ Paige asked suddenly ‘is that when babies are made?’
‘Yep’ Jasmine stated with a knowledgeable nod of her head ‘when adults sleep in the same bed a baby is made.’
‘How?’ Paige asked eagerly.
‘I don’t know I think they rub their tummy buttons together.’ Jasmine shrugged. ‘that’s what Anna Martins at school says.'
‘My mommy told me that the stork brings it.’ Paige added.
‘Oh yeah it does’ Jasmine agreed ‘after they rub tummy buttons the stork flies in through the window and asks them if they want a baby and if they say yes mommy’s tummy gets big.’
A knock on the door halted their conversation and Gerard poked his head into the room. ‘Hey pretty ladies, what are you doing?’
‘Playing tea parties’ Jasmine answered ‘Want to play too?’
‘Not right now I need you girls to come with me downstairs to say hi to everyone. Nana Donna’s here now’ Gerard said holding out his hands ‘but we can play later.’
‘Ok’ They both said in unison rising from the floor and following Gerard downstairs.
‘Are you alright kid?’ he asked Paige he noticed the solemn look on her normally smiling face.
‘Yep’ she said nodding her head but not smiling. She wanted to ask him about what she talked about with Jasmine but decided against it, it was probably best to ask a mommy anyway.
Cheyenne took the stairs two at a time, dinner would be ready soon and she needed to change into something a little bit nicer to dine in. She passed Lyn on the stairs and smiled politely at her but her grin widened when she saw Frank in the upstairs hallway.
‘Hey handsome why the long face?’ she asked noticing the frown on his face
‘Nothing’ Frank said offering her a smile that didn't reach his hazel eyes.
‘I’m not buying that’ Cheyenne said taking his hand ‘talk to me’
Frank hesitated knowing now really wasn’t the time or the place to have the conversation. He followed her into the bedroom before he said what was on his mind.
'Ok I'm listening' Cheyenne said sitting on the bed.
Frank sighed ‘It’s just this whole thing about us, I’ve been thinking that it may be a good idea to come clean.’ he said settling beside her.
‘What?’ Cheyenne asked her eyes wide in surprise ‘what are you talking about?’
‘I just-I think its better if we tell Gerard rather then have him find out when we’re wrapped around each other’ Frank replied
‘Frank that is the most insane thing you have ever said’ Cheyenne told him. She would laugh if his face wasn't so serious.
‘Don’t you want to be with me?’ he asked
‘Of course I do’ Cheyenne said touching his face ‘but its not that simple I can’t just walk out and leave.’
‘Why not?’ Frank asked
‘Because of Jasmine’ Cheyenne said ‘because of Gerard, because of our family and friends. How do we explain something like this to Jasmine. How do we explain it to Gerard and expect him to understand?’
‘Its better if we tell him then have him find out’ Frank said ‘I know this isn’t easy’
‘No it isn’t and you haven’t thought about what you’re asking me to do’ Cheyenne said trying to keep her voice even
‘I have thought it through’ Frank insisted
‘No you haven’t’ Cheyenne said ‘you’re going on tour in three months time with Gerard you can’t drop something like this on him now it’ll be the most uncomfortable tour of your lives and that’s if the tour even goes ahead. What if he falls off the wagon, what if he hates you so much that he quits the band on the spot? And what about Jamia?’
‘What about her?’ Frank asked
‘You think she’s not going to work out that you divorced her for me’ Cheyenne said ‘she’s not stupid she'll hate us’
Frank huffed and ran his fingers through his hair. She was right there was a thousand reasons why they couldn’t fix the mess they had gotten themselves into.
‘There’s never going to be a good time’ Frank said
‘Maybe when the tours over…’ Cheyenne trailed off
‘That’s too far away’ Frank said
‘What other choice do we have we can’t tell him now. If he flips out we have no idea what he’ll do’ Cheyenne said ‘and think of your fans, they matter and you know it, they’re waiting for you. I won’t be the cause for their disappointment’
Frank knew she was right it was only a matter of months and he felt he could wait if he knew for sure that at the end of it she’d be his.
‘Chey I have to know, are you going to leave Gerard for me?’ Frank asked keeping his voice steady.
Cheyenne's whole body sagged and her shoulders dropped ‘I don’t know’ she said ‘I’m scared Frank, you and I would be great together but we’d disrupt everything, we’d lose everyone.’
‘I’m willing to risk it’ he said taking her hand in his ‘I’m not living for them I’m living for you Chey. Plus they wouldn’t hate us forever.’ He said a small smile on his lips ‘maybe a couple of decades at the most.’
‘I know you need a decision’ she said raising her head to look in his eyes. ‘I know you need some certainty but I can’t give you that right now.’
‘Why not?’ he asked ‘why can’t you promise to leave him for me?’
‘Because I’m not one hundred percent sure I can’ Cheyenne confessed her heart aching as she spoke ‘I don’t know if I can leave him.’
‘Of course you can’ Frank said
Cheyenne shook her head as she imagined walking out the door with Jasmine in one arm and a suitcase in the other it hurt to even think it.
‘The only reason you couldn't leave would be if you didn't want to' Frank said 'Can't or won't Chey?'
‘What is that supposed to mean?’ Cheyenne asked
‘I don’t know, maybe you don’t want to leave him.' Frank snapped 'you’ve got a pretty good set up here haven't you? You’ve got your wonderful boyfriend and your beautiful baby girl, you've got that happy family that everyone wants and then you’ve got me, your friend with benefits ready and willing when you are. It’s not a bad way to live’
Cheyenne recoiled at his words shocked that he'd say something like that to her and for a few seconds she couldn’t speak. ‘Wow, well you’ve clearly got me all figured out haven't you Frank?’ She said when she recovered.
‘Chey I didn’t-‘
‘No you’re right’ She said nodding her head in agreement ‘its couldn’t be because I can’t bear to break Gerard’s heart or to take Jasmine away from her Dad, or to break apart a long friendship or that I’m afraid that Gerard could start drinking again.’ She said her voice taking on an angry edge ‘It has to be that I’m such a big slut that I can’t leave him because I like fucking you both and if I choose between you I’ll have one less cock to suck.’
‘Chey c’mon I didn’t mean it’ Frank said reaching for her but she pulled away. 'I'm just fucking scared and frustrated.'
Cheyenne didn't respond choosing not to look at him. His words had hurt her but she was also upset that he was hurting too and that she was finding it so difficult to choose a man to be with.
'Hey look at me' Frank said his voice soft. He placed his fingers under her chin and raised it to look in her eyes 'I'm so sorry for what I said I really am I didn't mean it.'
'You think I'm using you' she muttered
'No I don't' Frank said 'It just slipped out its not how I feel I promise you. You don't make me feel used at all, you make me feel great. I was just being an asshole'
'We're in such a mess' Cheyenne groaned. 'what are we going to do?'
'Nothing' Frank said pulling her to him 'we'll see each other when we can and we'll play it safe just like we've been doing it's the only option we've got next to...' he trailed off choosing to let the sentence die instead of finishing it. Cheyenne knew what he was saying and it made her heart ache.
'I don't want that' Frank admitted 'that's the last thing I want. But I do want a decision' he said silently praying that his demand wouldn't push her in the wrong direction 'Not now obviously' he added hastily 'but by the end of the tour. I don't want to be with you like this anymore Chey. I want to be with you properly.' He cupped her face in his hands and pressed his lips against hers wanting her to feel the love he held for her. He pulled back offering her a smile which she returned as they looked into each others eyes 'When we come home you need to have chosen sugar, its gotta be all or nothing. '
'Its ok I'll get it' Gerard said getting up 'you guys all just sit there'
'Ok you get it honey' Donna laughed accepting the doll that Jasmine handed her.
Gerard muttered something under his breath as he walked out the room to answer the door.
'Hey Gerard' Amber said shyly he had yanked open the door startling her.
'Amber, what are you doing here?' he asked surprised to find her shivering on the doorstep. She smiled as he pulled her into a hug and out of he cold.
'Erm I hope you don't mind me coming over' she said her cheeks red from the cold and the embarrassment of dropping by unannounced 'Its just that that Richard and I were supposed to spend the day together, we had it all planned out but he got called away to work.'
'And you were all by your lonesome' Gerard said holding out his hand for her coat 'And you decided to seek out the best company that Jersey has to offer'
'Something like that' Amber grinned shrugging her coat off and handing it to him 'its ok right?.'
'Of course, its more than ok' Gerard said taking the paper bag in her hand and wrapping his arm around her shoulders. He marched her into the living room happy to have another friend join them for dinner. 'Look who's here everyone its the blushing bride to be' Gerard announced
Bob hid his surprise well when he spotted Amber under Gerard's arm. He had just been thinking about her and all of a sudden she walks in. He wanted to be mad at her for ignoring him all week but he couldn't stop the happiness that coursed through him as he watched her greet their friends. She was so beautiful and he couldn't believe how much he'd missed her. She was definitely one of the group, she was supposed to be here but most of all she was supposed to be with him. Bob smiled to himself as he caught Amber's eye and she blushed. Thanksgiving had just got a whole lot better.
Cheyenne grabbed the fancy table mats out of the draw and took them into the dining room as she prepared to set the table.
'Hey, what are you doing in here?' she asked Paige. The little girl was kneeling on one of the chairs hunched over the table.
'I'm colouring a picture for Uncle Mikey he said he wants to put it on his fridge at home' Paige told her looking up from her colouring book.
'That's nice' Cheyenne smiled 'make sure you stay in the lines then.'
'Oh I know' Paige said 'I'm good at colouring, my Mom says I get it from Dad...I mean Daddy Gerard. Mom says he's an artist.'
'He is' Cheyenne said 'it's a very good talent to have inherited.'
'What does that mean?' Paige asked screwing up her nose.
'Inherit means something that is passed on from parent to child' Cheyenne said breaking it down simply.
'Oh' Paige said nodding. They fell quiet and Cheyenne laid the table around the little girl not wanting to disturb her. She really was adorable. Suddenly Paige gave a loud sigh that broke the silence in the room.
'Wow that was a big sigh' Cheyenne remarked 'something wrong?'
'I don't want a baby brother or sister.' Paige sulked a frown forming on her face.
'Oh my gosh is your mom pregnant?' Cheyenne asked her voice full of surprise.
'I think so' Paige said 'that's what happens when adults sleep together right?'
'Sometimes' Cheyenne said folding a napkin into a neat fan wondering where Paige had heard that terminology.
'So maybe there's a baby' Paige said to her. 'and it'll take a long time to come'
'Erm maybe? Why don't you ask your mom and dad' Cheyenne said 'I'm sure they'd tell you if there was a baby'
'Its not my dad's' Paige stated and Cheyenne's head snapped up giving the girl her full attention 'He didn't say it.'
'Say what Paige?' Cheyenne asked, she was completely confused but intrigued by the things she was saying.
"It's been a long time since we slept together" Paige repeated 'My daddy didn't say that.'
Cheyenne felt a cold shiver run down her spine as she remembered Gerard and Lyn's infidelity. Did they still talk about it?
'Tell me honey who said it?' Cheyenne asked as softly as her shaking voice would allow.
'Uncle Frank did' Paige said looking up from her book 'Uncle Frank said it to Mommy.'
