Clara asked the guard at the entrance if he saw a man and woman carrying a baby in their arms exiting the door.
"I saw them heading to the parking area, Ma'am," the guard answered.
"Thank you, guard," Clara smiled at the guard in uniform and went to the parking lot.
She spotted John and Catherine standing in front of the vehicle that was slowly moving out of the parking area. She fixed her gaze at the tinted windows of the vehicle wanting to know who is the passenger inside.
The couple waved at the disappearing car.
Clara no longer calls the couple's attention, instead, she waited for them to come to her as they already spotted her.
Hector went to his wife's side as he saw John and Catherine approaching their location.
John and Catherine looked at each other, they were almost caught, it dawned on them that Clara and Susan nearly saw each other in the parking lot. Thank God, it didn't happen.
"Who is the owner of that car? Why you didn't invite them inside, son? There's plenty of food for everyone," Clara said looking intently at his son's face.
"Ah, just a friend of mine. They just drop by here to give their gifts to the babies, they were on their way to the airport to fetch a relative returning from the Netherlands." John constructed an impromptu alibi.
Catherine looked at John.
Clara eyed the gift bag. "Let me see the gift," she took the bag from her daughter-in-law's hold.
Catherine was not able to do anything, rooted on the spot.
Clara inspected the gifts in her hand. The three people around her were nervously looking at each other. "Looks like your friend is busy indeed he failed to write anything on the gift," she said still looking at the gifts, she didn't notice any written greetings or card attached to them.
John and Catherine stared at each other, huge relief washed over their faces.
Hector wrapped his arms around his wife's shoulder. "Let's go back inside," he said. They walked towards the entrance going to the party venue located at the back of the restaurant.
The couple followed them inside shrouded in complete silence.
Back in the venue.
John and Catherine would nervously glance at Clara's face from time to time, wanting to know if she noticed something in the parking lot earlier, fortunately, Clara is enjoying the party and her face didn't show any traces of doubts or suspicions.
The party continues until ten o'clock in the evening.
Time to go home.
"Thank you very much, guys, for coming!" John said to the visitors.
The visitor started leaving the venue, the last one to go home was John and Catherine.
George drove Caroline's car into her house while the other car driven by Allan was following them from behind with Sherry and Grace in the passenger seat going to sleep over in Caroline's house.
Infinity Jade Tower.
John placed the sleeping baby James in his crib and Catherine also did the same to baby Angel. They went to the closet and change into their pajama.
Done changing their clothes, they put the babies in the bed and began changing their diaper and their clothes as well. The babies were still sleeping soundly. They placed them back into their cribs.
John and Catherine climb into the bed and cuddled each other.
"That was super close!" Catherine blurted out referring to the incident earlier in the parking lot of the venue.
"Yeah, but I'm sure Mommy Clara can't identify my biological mother even if they see each other face to face," he said with absolute certainty.
"Are you sure they never meet before?" Catherine looked into his eyes.
"I'm 100% sure. That's what my father had told to me," John answered.
"Okay, if you say so." Catherine shrugged her shoulder. She put her hands inside his t-shirt and ran her fingers on his chiseled chest.
John groaned and lowered his head wanting to kiss his lovely wife, Catherine meets his lips halfway. They engaged in a heated kiss followed by a wild make-out session, with lots of fondling and grinding between their soft and hard body parts.
Catherine giggled when John was attempting to discard her blouse and shorts. "Oops, not now! We're tired and sleepy, we should go to sleep," she said.
John raised his brow. "Huh? Who's tired? Those babies are tired but not us," he chuckled and let out a wicked grin. "I want to enter 7th heaven tonight, with you," he whispered in her hears huskily. He is feeling hard already down there between his legs and sexually aroused while cuddling with his beloved wife.
Catherine smiled. She boldly palmed his erection between his legs. "Not today my love, I'm feeling sleepy already," she yawned and covered her mouth.
"Okay, I won't force you. I will just hug you," he said spooning her from behind.
Catherine closed her eyes heading to sleep, suddenly, baby Angel wake up and began crying. She opened her eyes, it's feeding time for her daughter. She rises from the bed and picked her up from the crib.
She went back into the bed and began breastfeeding baby Angel.
A few minutes later.
She looked at John, his eyes already closed, his chest heaving, he had already fallen asleep.
Catherine smiled fondly at her husband feeling so incredibly lucky to meet him in this lifetime. She remembered so well all the instances in the past when she tried to avoid him, wanting to forget him, in the end, she married him two times, first in a civil wedding and second in a church wedding and they already had two cute adorable babies that completed their little family. The one thing that she doesn't want to remember was her kidnapping that was unresolved until now. Still, it's the biggest mystery of her life. Then the other thing that she doesn't want to remember anymore was the moment John was sucking Ella's breast in the swimming pool. Damn! That was so painful!
Ahh, she has so many painful memories during her on and off relationship with John.
In the end, their love conquers all.
