CHAPTER 23- WELCOME HOME
AT THE CRIB
Zadduis's hands began to sweat as he the driver to his SimLyft took a right, turning on his block. It had been almost a year since he'd saw his wife, but he could see her beautiful smile radiating from there. She stood on the porch, like the solid female she was, awaiting his arrival and from the looks of it, she was equally as nervous.
Zadduis couldn't help but laugh. Finally, the Lyft pulled up to the place that he had called home. He had ached for 8 months to just be in this environment. Zanovia was just as stunning, if not more so than ever. But, he noticed something right off the bat, that sent him for a loop! Zanovia was pregnant and not just a few months. Her belly was the size of a beach ball. Tears welled up in his eyes. Zanovia had told him several time over the course of him being locked up that she had something to tell him... And, this must have been it! He felt overwhelmed with guilt. All he had ever wanted was to provide for his family. He knew that the game was dangerous, and it had it's faults, but he never intended on getting locked up and leaving his family. He tipped the driver, got out of the car, and just stood there for a moment, gazing at the love of his life, who lovingly stared back at him.
"You are more beautiful than than the first day that I met you." Zadduis said, genuinely. He felt like Zanovia was incredibly strong for raising his son, holding the house down AND being pregnant. He was VERY impressed... and a bit turned on.
His remark made Zanovia's heart flutter. "I'm more pregnant, too." She joked.
"I can see that." Zadduis replied charmingly, walking up the steps and smiling. He couldn't have been more happy.
Zanovia embraced her husband for the first time in eight months, and for a moment, the two just sat there in each other's arm's.
"I have missed you so much." Zadduis said, taking in all of his wife's beauty.
"Oh, I've missed you too baby." Zanovia confessed, feeling free for the first time in awhile. There was no greater feeling than her husband being home, again.
"I promise that I'm going to make all this time up to you and Baby A'King." Zadduis said, kissing his wife and looking her fiercely in the eyes.
"I know you will, baby." Zanovia replied, meaning every word.
"Let's go inside." Zadduis suggested. "I'm ready to see my son." He kissed his wife one last time, and headed inside to find Baby A'King.
