Under Age & Out Of Control (36)

Chapter 1

Bad News

"I know but I just want to know what I done wrong." I said. Before either of us could say anything else, I heard my phone ringing. I knew it was my mother. I got out of the shower and got my phone which was laying on the counter in the bathroom. "Hello?" I answered. "Hey, baby." My mother said. I could tell she had been crying. "Mom, what's wrong?" I asked. "I know this is probably a bad time but yesterday, Brenda had an accident." She started. "Oh my God is she ok?" I asked. "No. She didn't make it.
"They were going over her will this morning and Hayley hasn't been seen since December and Dani can't be trusted and she left in her will for you to take Jamie." She said. "Is Jamie ok? When are they bringing him?" I asked. "Yeah. He's fine. He was at home with the babysitter. Their bringing him over to your place tonight." She answered. "Ok. I'll tell Damion." I said. Then we hung up. "What's wrong?" Damion asked. I turned to face him. "Brenda's dead." I said in shock. He was speechless. "She left in her will for me and you to take Jamie. Their bringing him over tonight." I said. "So we're raising him?" Damion asked. "Yeah. Until Hayley turns up again. She's been missing since December. Well, not missing but no one has seen her since but Brenda left in her will for us to take care of Jamie if something happened to her." I explained. Damion didn't answer. He just stared in shock. I was shocked myself.
Me and Damion were waiting for the social worker or whatever to bring Jamie by. Then we heard a knock on the door. We went to the door. A woman with short blond hair was holding Jamie. "Bea!" He exclaimed reaching his little arms towards me. "Hey, Jamie!" I said taking him in my arms. He was smiling. "Is there anywhere you can take him for a moment so I can speak with you alone?" She asked. "Yeah. I'll take him in the other room and you two can talk." Damion said taking Jamie. Damion walked towards the living room with Jamie in his arms talking. "You can come in." I said. "No. Thanks though. I just want to say how sorry I am for your loss. But I am also supposed to tell you that we haven't explained to him what happened to his mother yet. When he asks, we just tell him she's on vacation or something. We or I, think its best that you wait until he's older to explain because he's only three now. He won't understand at the moment. But he's in your care now, you can tell him if you want to but I advise that you wait until he's older so he'll understand better." She explained. "I think we'll just wait until he's older. That makes better sense. He's nothing but a baby now. Thank you for bringing him by." I replied. She nodded and walked away. I walked in the living room where Damion was. Jamie was asleep on the couch. "What'd she say?" Damion asked quietly. I told him what she said. "We'll go tomorrow and get him a bed and put in our room and at the end of the week, we'll start looking at bigger apartments." I said. He nodded. I suppose having Jamie here was going to help me deal with the miscarriage. Me and Damion love Jamie to death.
Me and Damion lay in the bed with Jamie sleeping between us. I was running my fingers through his short thin hair. "If Hayley doesn't show up in a couple of months, I want to adopt Jamie. Then he can be James Christopher Smith." I said. Damion smiled warmly. "I love the idea. Whatever you want to do, I'm game." He said. I smiled and leaned over and kissed him. Then Jamie rolled over, still sound asleep.
~The Next Morning~
I was laying in bed. My eyes were still closed. I was hoping to go back to sleep but that was an epic fail because I felt like someone was staring at me. I ignored the feeling for a minute but it continued. I eased one eye open a little. I seen Jamie on his hands and knees in the bed staring at me. I closed my eye and fought a smile. Then a felt his little finger poking me in the side. I rolled over and opened my eyes and smile at him. He stood up on the bed and bounced and landed on me, wrapping his arms around me. "Ow! Good morning." I laughed. He wouldn't let go. I noticed Damion wasn't in the bed. "Where's Damion, Jamie?" I asked. He jumped off of me and ran to the door. He stopped and looked at me. "Come on, Bea!" He called. "Ok, ok." I smiled and got up. When I got to the doorway where he stood, he took off running down the hallway. I knew Damion was cooking by the scent that filled the apartment. It smelled so good. "Hey, there! Did you finally get Bri up?" Damion asked when Jamie ran into his arms and he picked him up. Jamie nodded and pointed towards me. "Whatever your cooking smells good." I smiled. I walked up to him and kissed him. "Your sizzling this morning." I said. "Hmmm, thank you." He smiled. "No. Really. Your bacon is burning!" I said pointing to the frying pan. "Crap!" He said and turned around. Then he turned back towards me and handed me Jamie then he turned back towards the burning bacon. He cut the stove off. "After I burn the place down, its finally done." He said. I walked over with Jamie still in my arms and sat three plate on the counter. "Can you get the forks for me, James?" I asked Jamie. "Uh-huh." He nodded. I opened the drawer with the forks and he got three forks and placed them gently on the plates. I kissed his cheek and sat him down. "Go sit and the table and we'll bring you you're plate." I said. "Oh-tay." He said and ran over to the table. I noticed him pulling out three chairs. I tapped Damion on the shoulder and pointed to Jamie. We smiled and watched as he pulled the chairs out then he sat in one and waited. We fixed the plates and walked over to the table. I placed Jamie's plate in front of him and he started eating before we could sit down. "Whoa there little man, your going to have a terrible stomach ache from eating so fast!" I said. He ignored me and continued eating fast. Me and Damion started eating. Then he looked up at me and Damion and he had eggs stuck to his face. Me and Damion laughed. I got a paper towel and wiped his face. "Now. Your all clean." I smiled. He then turned up his orange juice cup. Me and Damion watched in shock as he gulped down the orange juice. He put the cup down. "Are you finished yet?" I asked. He shook his head no. Then he burped rather loud for a kid his size and age. "What about now?" I asked with a raised eyebrow. He nodded. "Go pick out what you want to wear today." I said. He jumped out of the chair and reached for the plate. It was a glass plate and I didn't want him to break it. "I'll get the plate. You get the clothes." I said. He then took off through the kitchen and down the hall. The sound of his little feet pattering against the floor made a smile spread across my face. "You're giving him a bath." I said pointing at Damion with my fork. "No! Your giving him a bath!" He replied. "You're the guy!" I said. "You're the chick! You're the mom figure. You're giving him a bath." He said. "Nope. You're the dad figure! The dads give the son's a bath!" I replied. "Damn. We'll both give him a bath." He said. "Ok." I said. Then Jamie came running with his clothes and handed them to me. I was surprised at how well he picked out his clothes. They matched. "Ok. When we get finished eating we'll give you a bath and put you're clothes on." I said.
When we finished eating and took our plates to the kitchen, me and Damion took Jamie to the bathroom to give him a bath. I started the water in the tub and got a towel and bath cloth. He took his night clothes off and Damion put him in the tub. I handed Damion the soap and cloth. He looked at me. "Nah. You're giving him a bath." He said.
After a while of fighting over who would give Jamie a bath, we finally got him bathed and dressed. "Ok, now you two go watch T.V. while I get a bath." I said. They walked out of the bathroom and I walked out behind them to go get my clothes. I walked into our bedroom and got my clothes and walked back into the bathroom and turned the water on. I locked the door for some reason but I didn't unlock it. I had the water, again, rather warm. Goosebumps rose on my skin. I had my eyes closed and leaned against the wall enjoying my shower. My mind began to ramble then it came to a sudden stop when someone put their arms slowly around my waist. "What the hell?!" I yelled jumping around. It was Damion. "How the hell did you get in? I locked the damn door! Stalker!" I said. He smiled. "Actually, its kinda easy when you know how." He answered. "And I'm not a stalker if I'm your husband." He continued. He started kissing down my neck. "No. I know what you want and it answer is no. Jamie's in the house with us!" I said. "He's watching T.V. Besides, I know how to keep you quiet." He said and winked at me. I smiled and kissed him. He slowly wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me closer and I put my arms around his neck. I wrapped my leg around his waist. He pushed me against the wall and started kissing down my neck. I held my head back and fought the urge to let out a moan.
We were sitting in the living room watching TV. I had my legs curled up and my head laying on Damion's shoulder with his arm around me and Jamie was sitting in his lap with his head on my stomach. He was starting to get sleepy when someone knocked on the door. "Come in!" I yelled. Monica and Reid walked in. She stopped and had a look on her face. "Holy crap! I've been asleep or something!" She exclaimed. We laughed. Then she smiled and walked over. "Hey, Jamie." She smiled. He sat up and looked at her. "You don't remember me do you?" She asked. He shook his head no. "Well can I get a hug anyways?" She asked. He stood up in Damion's lap and held his arms out. She hugged him. I stood up. "Come on and you can go get a nap for a while." I said picking him up. He wrapped his little arms around my neck and hid his face under my hair. I walked into our room. I stopped in the doorway to turn the light on. He wanted down. I sat him down and he ran over to where I had my music and grabbed my Black Veil Brides CD and ran back over to me. "You want to listen to that?" I asked getting on my knees. "Uh-huh." He said shaking his head yes. "It won't give you nightmare?" I asked. He shook his head no. I thought for a moment. "Ok. We'll give it a try." I said. I stood up and went over to the CD player and put the CD on repeat. He got in his bed and covered up. I walked over to him and kissed his forehead and flipped the light out as I walked out.
"The kid is like us already." I said walking into the living room. "What do you mean?" Damion asked. "He's asleep to my Black Veil Brides CD. ''Asleep''! A three year old!" I said. "How do you think I got him to sleep last night? After about twenty CD's, I finally got that one and gave it a try while you were getting ready for bed." Damion answered. "You melted the kid's brain." Reid said. "I can't help what the kid likes. It made him go to sleep anyway." Damion said.
We walked into the kitchen. We sat down. "Where's Brenda?" Monica asked. "She... died." I said slowly and quietly. Monica gasped in shock. "Thankfully Jamie was at home with the babysitter." I said. I then explained everything to her.
"I told Damion that if Hayley didn't show up in a few months, I wanted to adopt Jamie. I love him to death. He is already like the kid I never had." I said.
