I watched as Selena tried to keep Ella’s sand filled hands out of her mouth,
“Babe just let her eat it, she’ll realize it doesn’t taste good & stop.” I chuckled.
“Do you know how many nasty things are in this sand? She could get sick!”
“She’ll be fine,” I smiled looking out over the ocean.
We had gone to a private island resort & were enjoying our first day here on the beach. We were here for 4 days and I had told everyone to not bother me with work related issues unless it was urgent. Selena & I both had left our phones at the resort house & were enjoying time as a family.
“See I told you it doesn’t taste good,” Selena chuckled as she picked up Ella who had started to cry after putting a hand full of sand in her mouth. Selena sat down on my chair & reached for Ella’s bottle letting her wash down the remaining sand. My hand instinctively moved to her upper thigh as I looked back over a few lines to a song I had been writing.
“Hey,” she whispered causing me to look away from my ipad & at her.
She was leaning over me, her face close to mine still holding Ella in her arms.
“Thank you,” She whispered before leaning in & kissing my lips softly.
I kissed her back giving her thigh a slight squeeze,
“No thank you,” I said smiling back at her.
“I mean it Jay, I really needed this…we really needed this.” She gave me that smile I hadn’t seen in a few weeks & I felt my heart melt.
Selena leaned over sitting Ella down on the blanket & we watched as she rolled onto her hands & knees & rocked back & forth before flopping back onto her stomach.
“She’s going to take off soon,” I smiled kissing Selena’s sun kissed shoulder.
“I cant believe she’s 7 months already,” I continued rubbing my hands on her shoulders.
“7 months old & she’s already been through so much,” Selena sighed,
“Baby lets not think about that, we are here to forget everything & just enjoy ourselves.”
“How can I enjoy myself when I have to protect her… protect you & her from the world we live in.” Selena’s chest heaved with emotion.
“Baby…” I breathed as I realized what has been going on with her the past few weeks.
“I have to constantly check the people I let into our lives to make sure they don’t screw us over or want to hurt Ella. I have to make sure you don’t work yourself so hard you get sick & on top of that I want to get back into work but don’t know if I can handle leaving Ella again after what happened.” Selena spoke quickly spilling everything she had been keeping in.
A tear slipped down her cheek & she quickly brushed it away,
“You don’t need to worry, like I’ve said many times, ‘I’ll look after you’ I’ll look after Ella. I want nothing more than you two to be safe, to have everything that is good in this world.” I sat up more moving my body so I was now siting up next to her, I reached down & picked up Ella from the blanket. She snuggled her face in my next & I could tell she was getting tired. I closed my eyes briefly taking in that moment; I took a deep breath before opening my eyes & meeting Selena’s.
“I didn’t protect you or Ella when I should have, I didn’t see it coming, I should have, but I didn’t. I didn’t protect you guys & I have to live with that for the rest of my life. I promise you this, I will do any an everything to protect you from now on.”
I watched a tear fall from Selena’s lash & Ella squirmed slightly before going back to snuggling.
“You do more than you can ever imagine for us, nobody saw what happened coming & you cant tell yourself you should have seen it coming. You’re more than Ella & I can ask for.” Selena leaned forward placing her lips on mine.
Soon our kiss was interrupted by a resort employee,
“Excuse me, Mr. Bieber?”
I pulled away from Selena & stood up placing my free hand on Ella’s back rubbing it slightly.
“Yes?” I asked slightly annoyed by the interruption.
“I’m so sorry to bother you but you have a call that came to the resort & they said it was an emergency.”
“Did they give a name?” I asked my pulse risings, Selena had stood up next to me worry radiating off of her body.
“Scooter was all sir.”
“Is he still on the line?”
I looked down at Selena & before I could even put my shoes on I was headed up to the lobby with Ella still in my arms & Selena not far behind me.
