Her Adopted Baby’s Daddy: Chapter 6

Jules’ POV

Well today was totally different from my other days at work. I’m totally happy and at rest that I finished attending to those files. It would have been a nightmare. I wouldn’t have been able to sleep without thinking about it, if I hadn’t finished it.

I sighed.

Well, it’s done.

I was planning on cooking while Ivy was in the living room where I could monitor her, playing with her dolls when I heard a knock.

Who could it be?

Andy or Sofi didn’t say anything about coming over.

I dropped everything I held in my hands and went to the door to check out who it was.

I heard the knock again as I picked Ivy and placed her on my hip and went to the door.

“I’m coming” I called and reached the door.

I opened it and his eyes captured mine.

“Dada” Ivy said when she saw who it was. She immediately untangled her arms around me and stretched them towards ‘Dada’.

“Hey” he stepped in and took her from me. “How are you munchkin?” He asked her.

Ivy grinned and made a cute giggle sound.

I watched as he took her into the living room without even giving me another glance.

“Well, come on in” I said as I slammed the door.

I made my way into the living room and I stopped at the sight before me. Ivy was lying on the couch as Ceaser tickled her. Her laugh was so loud and cute, I thought she’d choke. I felt myself smile.

Ceaser acknowledged my presence then. He looked at me as he picked Ivy.

“Hey” he said smiling at me.

My smile grew wider.

“For a moment there…” I said pointing at the door with my right thumb”… I thought you didn’t see me”.

“Sorry, I just got caught up with this cutie right here” he said, smiling at Ivy.

How in the world would the idea of a guy giving my daughter more attention than me make my heart overflow with joy and happiness.

It made me more satisfied than the idea of giving me more attention and neglecting Ivy.

Somehow I found it…sexy.

“I don’t mean to sound rude or anything but what are you doing here?” I asked, trying not to sound rude.

“I told you I was gonna come pick you up for dinner” he said.

“What?!” I was surprised.

“Dinner.” He said.

“B-But I thought it was for another time, another day” I said clearly confused.

“No darling” he said flashing that smile that makes my knees buckle. And the endearment made my heart flutter.

“I’m sorry. I can’t.” I said sadly.

“Why not?” His brows creased.

I looked at him with a raised eyebrow. Wondering if he was seriously asking me that.

“Just to be sure, you do know I have a daughter, right?” I asked.

“Hm, yeah” he said looking confused. He waited for me to go further but obviously I was also doing the same.

“So how does that affect dinner?” he asked.

“Are you kidding?” I asked seriously.

Was he for real?

“No I’m not” he said “Look, it would be great to go to dinner with you…but it’ll also be much more fun if Ivy came along.”

I was dumb struck. Who is this guy?

“You should probably get ready” he said.

“Oh. Right” I said getting up from the chair I didn’t know I sat on, it was probably when I was confused. I went to take Ivy from him.

“Where are you taking her?” he asked.

“She might be a child, but she’s also a lady. You don’t expect her to go to dinner with her play cloth, do you?”

“Right”

“This will probably take long, so make yourself comfortable” I said as I left.

“Take your time” I heard him call out.

It’s a good thing Ivy and I showered after we got back from the office which wasn’t that long ago.

I went into Ivy’s room which was beside mine. I took her cute pale pink dress that was plain bit had a tiny band at the waist. I took off her play cloth and replaced it with the dress. I tidied her hair and placed a headband. I packed extra diapers in a bag with baby powder, lotion and sanitizer among other things.

I picked her and the bag and went to the living room.

Ceaser got up when I entered the living room.

“My princess is looking adorable” he said to Ivy.

“Could you please keep her company while I get changed”.

“Of course” he took Ivy from me. I placed the bag on the couch and went into my room to get ready.

I took out a straight dress from my closet which was just like Ivy’s gown only it was dark blue. I combed my hair and let it cascade past my shoulders. I applied mascara and some lipstick. I wore my nude pumps and picked up my black clutch.

I looked at my reflection in the mirror.

I sighed and then went down to join them. I got to the kitchen.

“I’m done” I called out to Ceaser who was laughing at probably something Ivy was doing.

“Okay” I saw him get up as I picked my phone and my car keys from the kitchen counter and joined them.

“Wow” I heard Ceaser say.

I looked up at him to find him checking me out from toe to head. I felt my body tingle under his gaze.

“You look…a-amazing” he said.

I smiled “Thanks” I picked Ivy’s bag and looked at him.

“Ready?” He asked.

“Yea” I said “Let’s go” I went ahead and l opened the door. I shut and locked it behind me. Ceaser waited at the bottom stairs for me. “Oh. Do you have space for her carrier?” I asked him.

“Yeah” he said

“Okay. Hold on a second.” I said and went to my car to remove Ivy’s carrier from the back seat. I locked the car and went to Ceaser’s car. I placed the carrier in the back seat and shut the door. I took Ivy from Ceaser as he opened the door for me. I got in.

“Thanks”.

I watched him round the car to the driver’s seat. He got in and started the engine.

He looked at me with a smile on his lips. I smiled back and faced Ivy who was playing with the hem of her dress.

Ceaser drove off.

“So where are we going?” I asked a minute later.

“We’re going to eat” he said sarcastically.

“I know that” I snorted “But where?”

He glanced at me.

“It’s for me to know, and for you to find out”.

“Fine” I said and left it at that.

Ceaser finally pulled up in front of a restaurant. He got out and came round to open the door for me.

“Thanks” I got out of the car with Ivy clutching my shoulder “I’m gonna need her carrier”.

“I’ll get it” he said and took the carrier from the back seat. “Let’s go”

I felt his hand on the small of my back. It sent a shiver down my spine.

“Good evening Mr…” a lady said.

“Thank you” Ceaser said before she could end her greeting, “A table for three”.

“Right this way, sir” The lady said and showed us inside the restaurant. She led us to a secluded corner of the restaurant. “Your waiter will be with you shortly”.

“Thank you” I said when I realised Ceaser wasn’t gonna say anything. Ceaser placed the carrier on a seat while he pulled out another one for me to seat on.

“Thank you” I said.

“Why do you always thank everyone for every tiny gesture?” He asked after he sat down.

“Cause it’s polite” I said.

“Good evening.” I heard someone say beside us “I’ll be your waiter” he said as he handed us the menu.

I smiled at him as he handed me mine.

“What would you like to order?” He said.

I scanned the menu for what Ivy could eat.

“Jules what would you like?” Ceaser asked.

“Uh” I finally decided “I’ll have a steak with mashed potatoes and minced meat by the side” I said and looked up to see Ceaser smiling and staring at me.

“And you sir?” The waiter said.

“I’ll have a steak” he said.

We handed the menu back to him.

“It’ll take a while” he said and left.

“Dada” Ivy who had been making baby sounds since finally spoke. She was looking and stretching her hands towards Ceaser.

“Hey darling” he said as he scooped her away from me.

“You really have a lot of endearments for her” I said.

“Why wouldn’t I?” He asked “She deserves all of them. Although, I’m trying to fine the perfect one”.

I smiled.

“Who are you?” I asked suddenly.

He looked away from Ivy at me.

“What do you mean?”

“I’ve been waiting for the moment you’d take off, but you still haven’t” I said “You just intrigue me”.

“Is that a good thing?” He asked.

I smiled and nodded.

“But it’s also scary” I said.

The waiter came with our food then.

Her Adopted Baby’s Daddy; Chapter Two

Ceaser’s POV

After the talk with John. I couldn’t wait a minute longer to execute my plan. I told Claire to cancel my next appointment then I made my way to the elevator.

“Get the car Patrick” I told my driver when he picked my call.

“Right away sir” he said.

A minute and a half later the elevator dinged open into the lobby. I got out and made my way outside. All heads turned to my direction.

“Have a nice day sir” Clarence said as he opened the door for me.

I nodded at him and exited the building. I spotted Patrick and the car waiting for me in front of the building. He held the door open for me then closed it after I got in.

“Where to sir?” He asked after he got in and started the car.

“Freddie and Co.” I said.

A few minutes later we arrived at Freddie and Co. I got out of the car and made my way into the building. As I entered, the receptionist couldn’t utter a word, she just stared at me. I would never get tired of having that effect on people. Especially the ladies.

I pressed the button to the elevator and waited for it.

Oh, I hated waiting.

Jules’ POV

Well, today went well. During lunch, I went to pick Ivy up and headed to a nearby restaurant with ‘Miwanda’ and ‘Sofi’ as Ivy calls them. They had a number of assistants to help out in the daycare so they were excited to join Ivy and I for lunch.

Now the perfect day was over. Everything was great, Ivy was sleeping peacefully in my arms as I got into the elevator. Sofia and Miranda had taken great care of her, they didn’t call once to complain about Ivy. Well who would, she was just perfect like that.

My little girl.

The elevator finally dinged open to the ground floor. I waited for the ladies who were in the elevator to get out before I finally stepped out. I didn’t want to disturb Ivy. As I stepped out, someone else was about stepping in and we collided. Well our shoulders did.

My purse fell to the floor and I bent to pick it without looking at the person I bumped into.

“I’m sorry” I uttered to the person still trying to reach my purse without waking Ivy. I finally got it and placed it back on my shoulder. I looked up but found nobody and the elevator gone.

“Well at least she didn’t complain” I murmured as I exited the building and waited for Jerry – the valet – to bring my car.

I placed Ivy securely in the back in her seat. I thanked Jerry and got into the car and drove off.

Ceaser’s POV

I waited for the elevator and then let those ladies out of the elevator. Then I moved to go into it but then bumped into someone. Well technically, she bumped into me. I was already on edge cause of the wait and this lady had to make me more pissed by not watching where she was going. I was about giving her a piece of my mind when she bent to pick her purse but then the sleeping child she had in her arms caught my attention.

She had brown hair just like the woman carrying her. It wasn’t the same shade though. She was so adorable. I hated children but something about this child right here just made me melt at sight. I would have assessed her longer but the elevator was closing and I had to get in quick. Then I got into the elevator before it closed shut but not before I heard the lady carrying the child say “I’m sorry”.

Her voice was soft and low. Maybe she didn’t want to wake the child.

I finally made it to the top floor. The elevator dinged open and I got out. I walked into the lobby and spotted a lady. Probably his assistant or secretary. She was pretty with her blonde hair in a rough bun.

She saw me approaching and quickly got up

“Mr…Mr. Thompson” she stuttered, clearly shocked that I was here.

I’ve never had any dealing with Freddie and Co. So I’ve never contacted them for any reason. But now I wanted to make a proposal which he has to accept.

“Mr. Stroma around?” I asked her.

“Y-yes sir” she nodded “Let me inform him of your presence”.

I waited.

She beeped him “Sir, Mr. Thompson is here to see you”.

“Mr. Thompson?” He sounded surprised.

Why wouldn’t he? I don’t blame him.

“Hm, let him in” he said.

“Yes sir” she said then smiled at me “Go right in Mr Thompson” she smiled seductively, flirting with me.

I smiled at her and made my way into Freddie Stroma’s office. He got up when I entered.

“Mr. Thompson” he called as he stood up. “What a surprise”.

I walked towards his desk

“Definitely is”.

“Have a seat” he said.

I sat down.

“To what do I owe this pleasure?” He asked.

“I’m here for business Mr. Stroma” I said, now in my business like mood.

He looked confused “I don’t see how we can help you with that Mr Thompson. We’re not in the same line of work”.

“I know. But still, I have a proposal for you” I told him.

He clenched his jaw

“Let’s hear it” he said.

“I know Freddie and Co. has gone bankrupt and you need people to invest to help you out. I’d like to invest, but I’d love it more if you’re looking for a buyer.” I paused “So, name your price”.

“I’m getting lost here” he leaned forward and rested his elbow on the table. “You’re saying you want to buy the company”.

“That’s right Mr. Stroma” I also leaned forward.

“Why would you suddenly want to divert to my line of business. You own construction companies around the world and you want to buy my publishing company. Can I ask why?”

“Personal reasons” I said “So, what’s the price?”.

He sighed “I don’t think we’re ready to sell Mr. Thompson”.

“Your company has gone bankrupt and you still need investors but you don’t want to sell” I stated.

“Its not my call…”

“Of course it is. You’ll just have to pay back your investors to get the upper hand.” I paused “Mr Stroma, I’m willing to buy this company and pay your investors back, just name your price”.

He looked surprised, shocked and happy.

He smiled “We have a deal Mr Thompson” he stood up and stretched his hand.

I got up, buttoned my suit and shook his hand. I smiled at him and nodded

“I’ll have my lawyer draw up a contract and have it delivered to you. I want to end this as quickly as possible”.

He sighed “Your reason must be very important”.

“It is” I said and left.

I called my lawyer and told him to draw up a contract and have it delivered to Mr Stroma today. I wanted to end all tides by tomorrow.

Jules’ POV

The week went by in a blur. It was fun cause of lunch time but everything else was the same. Yesterday we were informed by the manager that we have a new CEO. Hopefully he won’t do anything irrational like fire people. Anyway he wasn’t around to give a speech.

Well today’s over and I’m finally going home and not coming back till Monday. I made my way to the ground floor.

Jerry told me my car won’t start so I went to the garage to start the darned car but it didn’t start. I finally gave up and picked Ivy from the backseat, took my bag and got out. I was on my way out of the garage when a car honked beside me.

The glass rolled down and I saw a god inside. I swallowed inaudibly at the sight of him. He was so…

“Need a ride?” He asked and my heart melted at his voice.

How could anyone be so hot. My heart did a double take.

Ceaser’s POV

I didn’t want to go for the stupid welcoming yesterday. So I stayed in my new office which I just had redesigned and redecorated. I finally decided to go home. I was leaving the whole Jules Jenna situation for next week.

I took the elevator straight to the underground floor. The garage. I drove today. Patrick had some important family business to deal with.

I got into my car and drove out of my spot. I was almost exiting the garage when I noticed a familiar figure walking out of the garage with that adorable baby in her arms. I stopped directly beside her and wound down. She looked at the glass and my breath caught. I didn’t see her face the other day at the elevator but now…damn!

I was in trouble.

“Need a ride?” I asked her instead of just staring at her.

She just looked at me. Like she was assessing me.

‘Uhmm,…” she wasn’t sure.

Who the heck is never sure to get into my ride with me? When ladies will nothing but beg to get in a ride with me. What was her deal?

“…I could walk” she said.

“With that child in your arms?” I asked her. Why was I pushing her. I could just speed off and never look back. I was asking for trouble…and I was gonna get it.

She was gonna say something else but she thought about it for a second and she sighed. She opened the door and gently got in, placing her hand on the child’s head trying to prevent her from hitting her head on the hood of the car.

I smiled at the gesture, she was caring and considerate. She shut the door and placed the sleeping baby on her lap with her arms supporting her head. Then she looked at me.

I smiled a little trying not to look like a douche. Then I drove out of the garage.

“Where to?” I asked…

A little bit of Spice

Hi Guys, I’m super excited in anticipation that you’re gonna like what I’m about to share with you. I decided to do some sort of collaboration with my baby sister. Well you could scratch out the “baby” part because she’s 19 years old… I think *scratches head*. Anyways she’s been writing on Wattpad for over two years now. To be honest I never knew what Wattpad was about until she mentioned it. And last I checked, she’s written over 5 (fiction) novels and has quite a lot of followers (I can’t remember how many exactly. Does that make me a bad sister? No right? Thanks).

In this post, I talked about my resolution to be more consistent with blogging and I’ve been trying my hardest to achieve that slowly. You guys can attest to that right?! In a bid to not only grow my blog, but also give you guys something entertaining to look forward to as well as add spice to things, I had a discussion with my sister which resulted in my decision to bring her in as a guest writer for some time. Starting tomorrow, I’d be putting up excerpts from one of her books on a weekly basis. I hope you guys enjoy reading and I’d be looking forward to your comments.

I included a summary of the book below.

Jules Jenna hates the fact that she’s trying to hide herself in her work to avoid grieving her parents death. She needed someone in her life and she wasn’t good with relationships. But one thing she was good at was taking care of a baby. She decided to adopt a child, whom she fell in love with.

Ceaser Thompson just found out that his deceased wife had his child and gave her up for adoption. Now he wants his child – the heiress of his companies – And he’ll go any lengths to have her as his own, legally.

Will this woman who adopted his daughter give her up easily or Would he have to use his charms to get her to give up and give in?

Find out. Coming right up. If you don’t wanna miss this, then I’d suggest you hit “Subscribe” *winks*.

What do you think the title of the novel might be??? Yes! I deliberately left out the title and I’m feeling so mischievous right now *lol*. Do let me know what your guess is in the comment section.

Laters Guys.
