Chapter Twenty ✨
Josh’s pov cont
I went straight to my room cause I was extremely tired.
Lisa laid on the bed with her eyes wide open. She was quietly staring into nothing.
I laid beside her and cuddled her, we were facing the ceiling.
“Josh, am… Sorry… “She said as a tear escaped from her eye.
“Am a horrible mother.. I can’t take care of my own son..
“I let him starve… He didn’t want to eat and there was nothing I could do about it ” she said and began sobbing.
I brought her close to me and kissed her.
“Don’t say that honey… You’re doing great. Just cause zac misbehaved doesn’t make you a bad mom. Besides all this happened cause of that wrench, Nora.. “I said
“yea… “Lisa interposed “Nora, the nanny… She suffocated me… If I remember vividly ”
“She’s no good… I got her locked up for now, we can decide on what to do about her later… But for now, Lisa you have to eat “, I said.
She sat up .
“No, am not hungry ” she retorted.
“Oh come on babe, don’t act like zac now ” I said rubbing her skin.
“Am not gonna eat ”
“I’ll feed you.. “I offered.
She shook her head. I lifted her up and carried her and we left for the kitchen.
I dropped her on the kitchen table, then I turned to prepare a simple delicious meal.
I dumped the food Nora made in the trash can before cooking. I simply cooked Spaghetti. I added some left over minced meat in the fridge.
I served Lisa and I and we ate to we were filled up right there in the kitchen.
After that, I carried her again and we went upstairs. I took her straight into the bathroom.
I proposed we bath together but she declined. I pressured her till she gave in and we bath under the cold shower.
When we were done, she stepped out first rushing to get her clothes. I stared after her wet back as she left.
It would only take a miracle for Lisa to ever decide on her own to give me blow job, much more sex.
Am always the one making the first approach and she likes it that way.
After putting on my short, I joined Lisa on the bed and she turned off the light.
“Hey! How do you expect me to see your pretty face so I can give you your goodnight kiss “I asked.
“Don’t, I don’t need your kiss “she said.
She rolled to my side.
“, but you very much need mine cause you’re way to vulnerable to bad dreams.. ” she said seductively and crashed her lips on mine.
After a short kiss, she turned to her side.
Josh has been pretty supportive, he deserves a kiss.
I turned to my side to get a shut eye.
Everywhere became quiet.
“Lisa… I can’t sleep “I heard Josh say behind me.
“After all the stress zac has put us through? “I asked
Hmm, I hope is not what I think it is…
Josh better sleeps.
I closed my eyes tightly and scolded my mind to sleep.
A week later, I woke up from not so early in the morning and went to zac’s room to check on him.
Presumably, he was already awake.
I walked into his room. I met him sleeping. He was breathing in a funny way.
I smiled at his and turned to go but then, I noticed the tiny sweats visible on his forehead.
I touched him on his forehead, his body was super hot and he was burning up.
I panicked. I rushed back into my room and got on the bed. I knelt beside Josh and shook him.
“Wake up… Zac’s hot, he’s burning up… We need to take him to a doctor or something “I said in one breath.
Josh woke up and rubbed his eyes.
“Go get zac, I’ll get my car keys. “Josh said and I obeyed.
Zac’s body was so hot, I was even scared of caring him.
We arrived at the hospital and the doctor began attending to zac due to the fact he knew Josh.
The two mothers who were with their children looked angry and but the nurse explained to them.
The doctor prescribed some drugs for Zac.
“He’s teeth are coming out gradually but he got a serious fever. “The doctor added.
We went home.
As zac slept on the couch, I waited for Josh to return.
After a while, he returned with a file binder in his hand.
He looked quite unhappy.
“Josh, what is it? “I asked when he sat beside me.
He kissed me on the lips. His hands remained on my cheek cupping my face.
“Lisa, I was promoted, am… Am gonna be leaving for a while “he said. It dropped like a heavy load in my heart.
He’s leaving me?
