Recap: When we ended last, Apifanie left sweet little Ne'Aija to spend a day with her Daddy while she went off to work! Let's see how their Daddy & Daughter day went. Could Major's sudden sense of responsibility convince the woman of his dreams to come back? We'll have to see..
Major and little Ne'aija spent the entire day, playing, laughing and truly enjoying one another's company! Even though watching his daughter wasn't as easy as he thought it would be, Major was loving every minute of it. He'd learned so much about his little girl in such a short time. He was fascinated at what an amazing job Apifanie was doing, raising their daughter and it made her even more beautiful.
The clock had just struck 6pm and Major had just finished cooking grilled cheese for dinner, when Apifanie came walking in.
She was so happy to see her daughter content and happy with her dad.
"Hey, baby girl." She said, joining Major and Ne'Aija in th kitchen.
"Mommmy!" Little Ne'Aija squealed! Major turned around and greeted Apifanie with a kiss on the cheek. For a moment, Apifanie felt like they were a little family again and it made her hopeful about the recent growth within their relationship. "Mommy, Mommy! Daddy and I played airplanes... and colored pictures... and watched Barney!" Ne'Aija said excitedly.
"Wow, it sounds like you and daddy had fun today." Apifanie was truly impressed. She expected to come back to Major's apartment and it be burned down. She was pleasnantly surprised to see him holding the fort down with no issue. It was remarkabley cute.
Ne'Aija shook her head happily, in agreeance.
"Yeah, we had a great day." Major confirmed. "I'm just finishing up these grilled cheese sandwiches, you want one?"
Apifanie wasn't quite ready to let her guard down with Major, yet. Although she was extremely attracted to him (she secretly melted every time she was in his presence), and loved him dearly, she was always worried in the back of her mind that he may hurt her again, like he'd done in the past. But, being that Apifanie was so excited about eating grilled cheese with her daddy, and Apifanie wasn't in the mood to cook dinner for the both of them when she got home, Apifanie took Major up on his offer.
"Sure." She said. "A grilled cheese never hurt anyone." She joked. For the first time in a long time, Apifanie, Major and Ne'Aija sat together and enjoyed their grilled cheese as a family... and it felt good....
"I just wanted to say thank you for helping me out today with Ne'Aija." Apifanie said, thoroughly impressed.
"Like I said. It's no problem, Ne'Aija is my daughter, too." Major stated. "I might have messed up in the past, but I'm trying to fix it." He said.
"Well, I see you trying." She said, giving Major a big, long, intimate hug that he didn't expect. For the first time in years, Major felt like he was getting somewhere.
When Apifanie & Ne'Aija left that night, all Major could think about was them... He wanted his family back. Maybe everything would fall into place afterall….
