I Need Your Love

Love is the child of illusion and the parent of disillusion

- Carolina:
As I stared at the tiny pink + on the pregnancy test, I sighed and shook my head. This just had to happen right now. It had been about a month since I slept with Leo, and I hadn't shown any signs of pregnancy, but since my period was a couple of days late, Eddie went all panicky and practically forced me to take a test. I went out of the bathroom, and found Eddie just outside, looking at me expectantly.

"So?, what does it say?" he asked frantically and I sighed.

"Positive." I mumbled and his eyes widened.

"I'm going to murder him." he growled, and I shook my head, putting my hand on his shoulder to calm him down.

"It takes two to tango Eddie, I'm as responsible as him." I mumbled and he sighed before nodding.

"I guess you're right, are you keeping it?" he asked and I frowned.

"Of course I am, I'd never have the heart to give it up." I said, immediately putting my hand on my stomach protectively.

"I know, just wanted to make sure." he said and I nodded.

"Are you telling Messi?" he asked stiffly and I looked down before nodding.

"I'll tell him, because he deserves to know, but it doesn't change anything." I said firmly and Eddie nodded.

"What about Neymar?" he asked and I frowned. I had grown quite close with Neymar lately, and I couldn't say I didn't feel anything for him anymore.

"If he really loves me, he'll understand, but he'll probably be hurt." I said and Eddie frowned.

"Just try and think about what you're doing sissy, Messi will probably try and get you back, especially now when you're pregnant, just be careful and don't fall right back into his arms." he said and I nodded.

"Lionel and I are finished Eddie, there's nothing to worry about." I said before moving to grab my phone. But Eddie stopped me.

"Do you still love him?" he asked, making me stiffen and I sighed.

"I won't lie to you Eddie, yes I still love him, more than anything, but this time love isn't enough." I said and he nodded.

"Just be careful, I'm not allowing you to get hurt ever again, if something happens, I'm stepping in." he said firmly and I nodded. I walked into my room and dialed Leo, sighing. I wasn't exactly looking forward to talk to him.

"Caro?" he whispered when he answered and I grimaced.

"Hey Lionel." I said, and I heard him sigh. I had stopped calling him Leo a long time ago.

"Is there something wrong?" he asked hesitantly and I swallowed.

"Actually yes there is, a couple of weeks ago we both got really drunk and slept together." I said quickly, wanting to get this over with. He gasped and I closed my eyes.

"So it was you." he mused and I rolled my eyes.

"Anyways, we didn't use any protection-" I said and he cut me off before I finished.

"Are you pregnant???" he said loudly and I sighed.

"Unfortunately, yes." I said and played with my hair.

"Are you keeping it?" he asked softly and I frowned, why did everyone think I was giving it up?

"Of course." I said swiftly and he sighed in relief.

"I want to be in this baby's life, and Lia's too, I want you back in mine and Thiago's life as well, I was an absolute idiot Caro, things aren't the same without you." he whispered and I just shook my head.

"It doesn't work that way Lionel, I'll let you be a part of Lia's and this baby's life because it's your right as a father, and I'll be happy if you let me see Thiago sometime, but things between us are over Lionel, they were the moment you decided to sleep with Antonella." I said, making it clear that I didn't want him.

"Tell me you don't love me and I'll back away." he said after a while and I sighed.

"You know I can't do that." I mumbled and he stayed quiet.

"Then I won't stop fighting until I have your forgiveness and have you as my wife again." he said before hanging up. I groaned when I realized that he wouldn't leave me alone from now on. I just hoped I was doing the right thing by not giving him another chance, in my eyes he'd end up hurting me again and no matter how much I loved him, I didn't trust him.
