Around 2 am I lied in my bed. Then I looked at my ceiling . The grey of it looks familiar. Looks like my husband's eyes.
Oh no. I cant . I cannot fall for him .
I felt a vibration to my side. It was the phone 'he' gave me. I am not acknowledging him.
I picked it up . It said 'My hubby' with a freakishly handsome photo of him. Not wearing a suit but a band shirt with his hair disheveled.
"Hello ?".I said.
"Hello Mrs Stone. Thank you for answering".he said calmly.
"Okay. But call me Candice".I said.
"I prefer Mrs Stone. Makes me so happy to think I have a wife such as yourself. Candice ,I haven't been able to think about anything else apart from you ever since we met."
"Today ".he added.
"Okay."I said not knowing what else to say.
"Anyways. My parents are so happy they want to meet you right away."he seemed delirious.
"Are you okay ?".I asked.
"I you sound....."I was actually concerned for my husband. Wow . Real house wives of new Jersey .
"High . Delirious. No I am very ,very happy. I have finally met my beautiful wife who is everything I ever wanted."
Okay ....my husband is not okay. I think.
"Are you intoxicated ?".I asked.
"No. Yes . Maybe. Can you come bail me out. I am in.....on prison."he said.
"What . Why?".I asked.
Slipping out of bed ,wearing my comfy snuggs. I put on my woolen cap grandma made for me and a coat since British weather is a disaster.
I asked,"Why don't you call your parents?".I asked.
"They said they are not coming until morning. I cant stay here. It is horrid."He said.
"Which prison ?".I asked.
"West side prison ."he said.
"Okay. I am coming."
I hung up. Walked out of my room to the stairs.
"Where are you going?".dad asked looking up to me from the bottom of the stairs . Wearing his gown.
"Dad. Thank God you are awake. Listen I need your help."I said bouncing on my heels.
"Really ,what for?".He asked raising his eyebrows.
"Uhm",I laughed nervously.
"What would you do. If I said your son in law was arrested and he called me to bail him out ?".I asked.
His eyes narrowed.
"Shawn is arrested . What for?".dad asked walking closer to me.
"Well ,according to the police he is drinking and driving".I said.
"So have to bail him out now . At two in the morning. On your third anniversary?".dad asked.
"Okay kid . Take the car . I am going to bed. But remember I need the truck by eleven . I have to fix Mr Lance's lamps." he said.
"Ow dad there is no need . I am coming back right now ". I insisted.
"Relax kid you no longer have curfew. And I do not even have the right to tell you to not have sexual relations or anything cause you are married".he laughed.
"I am really sorry dad . I was intoxicated."I said dejectedly.
"Apparently he likes being intoxicated on your anniversary. Anyways do you regret getting married?".dad asked looking into my eyes.
"Funny enough. No . I never regretted getting married no matter how many times I told myself I want a divorce. There is this thrill that comes with the idea of telling some idiot of guy to back off. I am taken. It saved me a lot of trouble. My only regret was being too intoxicated to invite you guys."I said looking at him.
He smiled and kissed my forehead. Go take my son in law out of that hell hole."He said.
"He put himself there."I sat walking down the stairs to the door. Taking the keys from the door.
I closed the door ran to the car.
I drove to the prison. It was a little away from my home. 40 minutes later I pulled then ran in side to escape the rain .I entered to what she would've been people asleep to find people up and about. Others arguing ,talking ,signing ,giving statements,others with handcuffs.
I was surprised . Honestly. I have never been to a police station before. So were do I get help.
I saw three people in a queue and a reception. Yeah she should help me .
I waited in line and went on my turn.
The man smiled amusedly at me."You are the first person to greet me ma'am. Hello ,how can I help you?".he gave a charming smile.
Wow he was good looking.
"I am here to bail my husband out . Said he was arrested for drinking and driving".I said.
"Aw you are married . And your husband is drunk ,and arrested and has his little wife waking at two in the morning to bail him out".
I laughed."Well it is not like I was asleep or anything. But I would not have come if not for my conscious and that today is our third anniversary".I sighed.
"Ow. I am sorry honey. Tell me your husband's name that you love so much . He is a lucky guy".
His words caused to freeze then blush.
"Shawn Nikolas Stone".I said and he looked at with sudden intensity.
"Shawn Stone. The Shawn Stone. He is married?".he asked disbelievingly.
"Yeah to me. Candice Stone".I said.
He smiled."Congratulations. My name is Ryan Handler."he said.
"Nice to meet you."I said.
"Me too".he smiled then wrote a couple of staff ,called someone and told me to sit on the benches . While he helped other people.
Then he called me.
"Bail is €120 love."he said.
I took out my card and gave him. He swiped it and told me to follow another officer to the holding cells.
When I got to them ,a lot of men on benches. Some asleep ,some sulking. When Shawn saw me he stood up from the floor . His black shirt flexing about his muscles. Dusting his suit pants.
He did not look drunk. He looked angry.
"Shawn Stone."The officer called. He stepped forward.
"Is he your husband Ma'am?".
"Yes".I said. I looked away as he was freed then made to sign .
He walked behind me as we walked out . Ryan waved bye to me. Outside it was still pouring.
I felt a coat around my shoulders.
"Thank you ,but you are drunk . The alcohol in your system will cause vasodilation making you subsceptable to the cold".I said.
"Candi let us go. I would rather I get sick not you."he said.
Aw so sweet. No no sweet
He is the reason I am in the rain.
We ran to my father's truck. And I said"So ,where do you live?".I asked .
He directed me . By the we arrived it was 3:30 the sky a minky blue hinting sunrise.
I closed the door and walked him to the house. I was planning to go home now.
I knocked on the door. A butler like person opened the door to the mansion.
"Young Master Stone. Please come in. Thank you young lady . I will take it from here."
I nodded then turned to leave when his hands caught my wrist.
I am not letting you go to your death."he pulled me in despite the butler's protests.
At the bottom of the stair case he was leading me up. The lights switched on above then a pair of footsteps.
Came rushing out.
"What is the meaning of this?"asked a heavily accented female artist.
"Shawn ?".a male voice said. They raced down to where we stood. The only light available being from above the stairs.
"Who is this. Do not take it the wrong way young Lady,thank you for bailing him out but whatever you have with him has to stop. He is married. For three years".said the woman a bit harshly.
"I-I".I was at a loss of words. I took of his jacket tossed it to him and ran.
"Candice ,wait!"I heard Shawn said.
"Candice..."I heard the man said surprised.
"Mom stop harassing my wife".I was having a panic attack . Everything finally caught up to me. All the three years of pent up frustration,I couldn't take it anymore . I blacked out on the hard cold floor. That ought to leave a nasty scar.
I saw her go down . I ran to her ,my parents stood frozen not knowing what to do.
I got to her and knelt down to pick her up. She had a little bruised lip.
"Ow man her father is going to kill me . He told she must not have a scratch on her" .I cradled her but stuggard a little .
"Son allow me".my father said.
"You will drop her and hurt her more".he said.
"Be careful . Her parents gave me an ear full about their precious cargo. And now she had to bail me out on our third anniversary ".I cried.
"Wait ,you are serious. This is Vegas bride ,your wife?".she asked.
I took Candie's hand and showed her the ring . Her mother's ring.
"Ow my God".she gasped.
"Yes this is Mrs Candice Elizsbeth Stone. I met her yesterday by coincidence she was graduating with the other bash of scholarship students . Of course her scholarship was cancelled three years ago as soon as they found out she was married. I paid her money every month and I am glad she finished her nursing course. The minute she saw me at her house she told me she wanted a divorce . When so many girls want to tie me down ,she wants to let go".I said softly looking at her angelic face with such intensity that even I couldn't understand.
"Where should I put her,Your room?".he asked.
I shook my head smiling
"No. The guest room . She will have a panic attack if she wakes up next to me thinking this time I stole her virginity".I remarked.
"She is a virgin?",asked mom a little frightened.
"She has never been kissed. She thought I took her first kiss . You should have seen her shocked face when I was jesting".I smiled.
"Wow . She is so pure. Too pure and innocent for you".mom said.
I was shocked.
I said",Mr Rando!".I called.
"Yes young master".
"Here. Have one of the driver's deliver the pick up truck at her house."I gave him the keys and address.
Then we left to get back our beauty sleep.
I made sure Candice was alright then left.
My beautiful wife is finally home.
