Chapter Text

Hillary pushed Bill away, for a brief moment neither of them move nor said something. She tried to say something but, in that moment,  it looked like she woke up Isaac from his trance. He went directly to Bill, Isaac grabbed him by his suit, he pulled him closer to him and then pushed him against the wall. Hillary was afraid about how Bill will react; she didn’t want them to start fighting

 

“Isaac”

 

“The hell do you think you are doing?” Isaac yelled at him, he had Bill pinned against the wall. Bill didn’t do anything, he was trying to stay calm, he didn’t want to start a fight with him.

 

“Let him go Isaac, please let me explain to you” Hillary was trying to move his arms away from Bill, but he was stronger than her. She decided to pull his hands-off Bill, but in a sudden movement Isaac pushed Hilary away, harder than he intended to and Hillary staggered. Apparently, that was all it took to Bill to start defending himself. He pushed Isaac so hard that he fell down.

 

“Are you okay?” Bill faced Hillary, he wanted to check on her and Hillary nodded at him, understanding what he was checking. She  

 

“How dare you to kiss my wife” Isaac stood up and turned Bill around. What he said left Bill confused, he couldn’t believe what he said, Bill was trying to remember if he saw a ring in Hillary’s hand. Isaac took that advantage and he punched him in the face, Bill hit him back and they started dodging and throwing punches to each other. Meanwhile, Hillary was asking them to stop but neither of them were listening to her. Dorothy and Hugh came in into the kitchen and saw the whole scene. Bill and Isaac were fighting, and Hillary was asking them to stop. Hillary tried to intervene, but Dorothy grabbed her.

 

“What on earth do you think you are doing?” Hugh said before he separated them. He stood up in between them and extended both of his arms, trying to distance them. They stood there, their breaths were unsteady, their faces were so red that they looked like tomatoes and the rage on their looks were obvious, they looked like two raging bulls.

 

“What is going on? Why are you acting like animals? And in front of Hillary. Don’t you have any common sense?” Hugh was yelling at them; he was mad at them.

 

“He was taking advantage of Hillary, a pregnant woman” Isaac said, and Hugh and Dorothy looked at Bill

 

“No, I didn’t force her to do anything she didn’t want to”

 

“Bill don’t” Hillary didn’t want that her parents hear about their problems, she didn’t want to talk about in front of them. After several minutes they calmed themselves, but Hugh didn’t move.

 

“Mom, Dad would you give us a minute please? We need to talk about some stuffs”

 

“If I hear you are fighting again, you are going to regret it. Do I make myself clear? I don’t want you to fight” They nodded at him and with that Hugh and Dorothy left the room.

 

“What happened Hillary?” Isaac was talking to Hillary, he didn’t want to look at Bill, because he knew that if he looked at him, he might lose it again and he didn’t want to make another scene

 

“I’m sorry, what you saw was not what it looks like”

 

“Are you serious Hillary? You are going to lie to him, at this point there is no reason to lie Hillary” Bill was mad that Hillary wasn’t being truthful

 

“Bill please stop. I need you to go, now!” Hillary was firm, she wasn’t going to deal with him, she didn’t want to deal with both of them at the same time. Bill looked at her, but he didn’t move.

 

“Are you deaf or what? She asked you to go, this is something that is not your problem, this doesn’t concern you” Isaac was getting angry again

 

“I’m not going to go anywhere until Hillary, and I talk, alone” He took a step to get closer to Isaac, but Hillary got in between them, she turned around and face Bill.

 

“Bill, please.” She asked him to go in a softer tone and with a plead on her look. Bill looked at her hands and he didn’t saw any ring on her hand. Now he wasn’t sure that he heard Isaac right, what if he was lying and he only said that Hillary was his wife because he was trying to distract him.

 

“I just need to know one thing, are you his wife?” Hillary looked at him and he felt like the time has stopped. Those few seconds that took her to answer, Bill felt it like years

 

“Yes” Isaac said and put his arm around Hillary and pulled her closer to him. She rolled her eyes and moved a little

 

“No” Hillary was now mad at Isaac and how he was acting.

 

“But we are engaged” Bill felt relieved for a moment until he said that they were engaged. He felt like he was about to lose Hillary forever, and the thought that she might have his baby was only making it worse. He needed to stop that, he didn’t want to lose her, he didn’t want to lose the love of his life.

 

“Please go Bill, I need to talk with Isaac” He looked at Hillary, he didn’t move until she looked away.

 

“I’ll go, I don’t want to hear what kind of lies you are telling him. I just want to say that if you kept lying to yourself Hillary this is going to get out of your hands. You need to be real and stop hiding your real feelings.”

 

“What the hell are you trying to say?” Isaac was defensive.

 

“If she marries you it’s out of pity, because she doesn’t love you” Bill said before he left. He saw Dorothy and Hugh and he apologized with them before he left the house.

 

“Are you marrying me out of pity?” He was yelling now at Hillary

 

“What do you care what he says?”

 

“What? Are you kidding me Hillary? I just saw you two making out. How the hell am I supposed to react? for fucks sake Hillary, are you trying to fool around with me?” He shook his arms in disbelief.

 

“Please, listen to me, what you was clearly a mistake. I’m sorry, I’m really sorry Isaac” She put both of her hands on his shoulders, trying to calm him down.

 

“I don’t want you to talk to him ever Hillary”

 

“Please…”

 

“No, there’s no please here. You are not going to talk to him ever again Hillary” She didn’t say anything, she only shook her head in disbelief.

 

“Let me see what I can do with this and then let’s go to the hotel, you need to rest” She pointed at the bruise on his eye. Before she moved, he grabbed her by the wrist

 

“No”

 

“No?” She didn’t understand him

 

“Let’s get married” She was getting anxious; she was afraid of what he was about to said

 

“We are going to get married”

 

“No, I mean now. Let’s get married now” Hillary got pale; she couldn’t believe what he was saying

 

“What? It’s almost noon Isaac, nothing it’s open now” She started to shake, now she was getting nervous about that, she wasn’t sure that this was the right decision

 

“Let’s prepared everything for tomorrow morning”

 

“But where are we going to get married, we don’t have anything, what are we supposed to wear? where is going to be the wedding? who is going to marry us? I mean, there’s a lot of things we need to get ready before we do it” Hillary was afraid about this

 

“Do you want to really marry me Hillary?” Isaac was serious and a little annoyed

 

“Yes”

 

“Then why are you so negative? It’s because of that asshole?”

 

“No, what I’m trying to say is that we don’t need to be impulsive”

 

“No Hillary, you only want to delay everything, and I don’t like this”

 

“Well I don’t like that you are pressuring me”

 

“No, I’m not pressuring you, the only thing what I want to do is take the next step in our relationship but if you don’t want to do it, I don’t think this is going to last” Hillary felt like she was against the wall, she was so unsure about it, but she didn’t want to hurt him, she didn’t want to hurt his feelings and she was afraid that if she asked him for more time he would get hurt.

 

“So? Are we getting married tomorrow, or this is over?” Hillary looked at him, she took a deep breath and closed her eyes, she was trying to control her emotions, then she opened her eyes, looked to the ceiling before she looked at him and nodded.

 


 

Bill was so confused at this moment, he had a lot of emotions and all of them were so strong that was making him feel so confused, he didn’t know what to do, or how to reach Hillary without Isaac being there. When he got into his car, he saw himself by the rearview mirror and saw a big bruise on his face, between his nose and his left eye. He thought about how he was going to hide it, he was going to record his campaigning announcement for government in two days. He drove at his mother’s house, he needed to do something with his bruise. By the time he had arrived his phone had died. Bill grabbed his stuffs and came in; his mother was still awake and when she looked at him he asked her for help.

 

“Mom, I need your help. I’m kind of lost here” He said to her while her mother was healing him. Virginia didn’t say anything, he let him speak

 

“Do you remember Hillary?” Her mother nodded at him

 

“I think, I think she is pregnant” Her mother stopped what she was doing and gave him a certain look, but she waited for him to finish

 

“Well, I think I’m the father. There’s a chance of it” Her mother hit him, she seemed angry at him.

 

“How could you be so stupid to get that girl pregnant? Wait, did you say there’s a chance? Are you telling me that there’s another guy involved? This is the reason why you have this bruise right?” He nodded at her, confirming her last question and hit him again at the back of his head. 

 

“Mom, it’s not like I planned this, besides, I’m still not sure if it’s my baby or not” Virgina was going to say something else, but Bill stopped her.

 

“Bill, I know you have your own needs, but how could you do this and with someone like her? I thought you were with Patrice? Or what about your ex-girlfirned Alona? They are the kind of girls that you need by your side, not Hillary” Bill didn’t know why her mother was saying stuffs like that, he thought she liked Hillary.

 

“Mom, I think I’m in love with her, but she is with someone else now and I don’t know how to ask her about the baby, I don’t how to convince her to tell me if she knows if I’m the father or not. I don’t know what to do”

 

“What? Of course, not Bill, you only think you are in love with her, but you are not.”

 

“What?” He couldn’t believe her mother was acting like this. 

 

“Bill, if she is with someone else, let her be. Besides, this way you are not going to have to deal with a baby now, a baby at this time of your career is only going to distract yourself from your goal and being involved with a girl like Hillary is only making it worse for you. She is not the kind of girl you want to be seen with” Bill looked at her in disbelief, he didn't expect her to act like this.

 

“Mom, what are you saying? Do you hear yourself? I’m telling you that I’m in love with this girl and that there’s a possibility that she is carrying my child. How could you say that?”

 

“I’m just being truthful with you Bill. Besides, you asked for an advice, and here is my advice. Don’t get involved in this, if she is with someone else now, let her be, let the poor guy be with her and raised the child with her. You really don’t need this kind of chaos around you” Bill grabbed the hand of her mom, to make her stop, and stood up.

 

“Don’t you remember what Hillary did? Don’t you remember that Hillary took care of my dad when he was dying? Mom, Hillary has been nothing but nice and perfect with us. I really can’t believe you are saying this to me, if dad was alive, he would tell me to fight for her” He grabbed his phone and charged it, then he got back to his mother and grabbed the ice pack and pressed it against his face.

 

“And you know what that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to fight for her, I don’t want to lose her. Not again” He was walking away when her mother started talking

 

“Bill she is not the type of girl that you or anyone wants by your side. She is not a home girl.” He turned around and looked at her, he gave her a disgusted look and then left the room. He looked at his phone and saw that he had one message from an unknown number, he opened it and the moment he read it he felt his heart fell down to his feet.

 

             “Hillary and Isaac’s wedding is going to be tomorrow at 9:00 o’clock in the morning, you are more than welcome to assist to our wedding at Hugh and Dorothy’s house”

 

It was an unformal invitation; he knew Isaac was the one who sent that. It was 2:00 o’clock in the morning, he knew it was late, but he needed to find out if what he was reading was real, he needed to talk with Hillary right now and if that was real, he needed to asked her to stopped that madness. He called Hillary several times, but she wasn’t picking up her phone. He got in his car and drove at her parents’ house; they might know where she was. The moment he arrived he rang the bell several times until Hugh came out.
