"Where is she, Jasmine!?" Kamal asked his soon to be ex-wife.
"I don't know, I've asked around and the kitchen staff say they saw her walking off with a large rucksack yesterday… but no one has seen or heard from her since!" a now scared Jasmine Hadley answered.
A silence surrounded them; only being broken with Minerva running down the stairs into the hall they were standing in.
"Look at this note, it's from Sephy!"
Kamal read the note aloud to the other two members of his family:
Dear Mother, Dad and Minnie,
After today don't expect to see me again as I have run away from all of your nonsense. I can now be with someone who really loves and cherishes me.
Mother, for me and the love of all that is holy please STOP DRINKING! It'll kill you I can promise you that!
Dad, I love you and I mean this in the nicest possible way; you're a really terrible father! Seriously, how do you expect to raise you kids and for them to give care about the real you if you're never there?! Your views on noughts and the people that there are, I'm afraid, wrong, they're very nice people!
Minnie, get out of there or it'll be the end of you!
Love you all,
"Oh my gosh, she's finally done it!" Shouted Minerva running around in a circle and doing a happy dance.
"What do mean 'she's finally done it'?" both adults asked their eldest daughter.
"She got out of this mad house, and I'm betting the country too! The lucky thing…" a bit calmer Minerva stated.
"Dad!?" a very surprised Callum asked in a whisper.
"Hey son, come up!" a now very excited Ryan McGregor answered buzzing them in.
When they had gone up the lift to the penthouse in silence the sheer volume of laughter and music coming from an open door in the hallway was a shock to the system.
"Callum, sweetheart! How you been?"
In the door way stood a smiling, dark haired women holding a bottle of champagne and a flute glass. The blue silk dress she was wear emphasized her pale skin, long legs, small waist, curvy hips and modest bust. (A/N as ya do…)
"Isabel! I've been good thanks you? This is Sephy by the way." I pulled Sephy from behind me so the Isabel could get a look.
"Same thanks. Hello Sephy, I've heard so much about you it's great to finally meet you come in both of you, you must be freezing!"
At that moment my brother Jude came to the door way when he saw Sephy and I standing there he gave us a smirk. He looked good, must have been here a long time to make him this happy.
"Hello little brother, Miss Hadley." Nodding at us both he turned to Isabel "Hun, you gunna open that or what people are gettin' thirsty in here!"
"Ok, ok I'm just gettin' there! Show Callum and Sephy there room then get them a drink will ya?!"
"Sure, what do you want? Rum & Coke… Bucks Fizz…. Water?" Jude asks as we walk towards the living room where everyone is.
Music is blasting out of the speakers in all directions and there are loads of people I knew from family get-togethers etc.
"So, how was the trip Callum? Wasn't to stressful I hope." Isabel had return, looking as wonderful as ever (Jude's taste in women was met only in Isabel and Isabel alone. I've never known anyone stand up to him the way she does. Probably the fact that she doesn't care; at least they go out and can argue between themselves now without having to bring everyone else into it.)
"It was fine thanks, different but fine."
"Good, Good. Sephy, I heard your dad's Kamal Hadley… how's that treating you?"
"Badly… though I met Callum through it so good in that sense of course."
"Awh! You're so polite! I know Kamal, always was annoyingly political."
Mutually calm conversation carried on for a few hours well into the night until it was time for bed.
At least 40 people in one living room? Back home we could barely get our family in it without arguments, how is it possible to get 40 people comfortable, drinks and all without any fights about the wrong mix?! Plus there was the fact that Jude, Callum's tedious older brother, was being nice and giving us drinks without any comment about me being here.
Isabel's brilliant, talking to us for ages with no chance of stopping until its 2 am and everyone is either leaving or going to bed. Callum and I are given our own room with a double bed… well it's not like we haven't slept in the same bed before, and there are no parents to worry about in the morning…
When we're in bed (under the covers this time) Callum hugs me close to him, smiling into my hair and kissing it every now and then.
I turn to him, smile up at him, the kiss him on the lips; it was only meant to be quick but soon turns deeper and more passionate by the second. Our tongues tangle in the battle which rages, our hearts pounding as one, hands every where but never anywhere for to long, searching the other.
An unknown amount of time goes by before we break apart. Breathless and happy with what has happened. Callum lays his head on mine. We lie back onto the bed and just lay there, my head now under Callums chin, his arms around me. He kisses my head, cheeks nose, eyes, lips, until all of my face is covered in his kisses.
I return the favour.
The next morning I woke up to see Sephy lying in my arms, sunlight from the window streaming down onto her face. She looks angelic. As I lay there thinking, Sephy woke up and it was then I decided to tell it to her face, what I had told last time we lay like this.
"I need to tell you something."
She was wide awake now I could tell. Taking a deep breath I took the plunge a told her.
"I love you."
I'm sorry to end it on this but you have to wait and see Sephy's reaction next time.
Review please, oh and this is also for Laura as well because I took so long to update!
