So he is calling you at home now?”

“Yeah, I gave him my home number in case of emergencies.”

“What type of emergencies could he have?” John said drinking his wine.

“Well, it wasn't exactly an emergency.”

“So what he was calling you for what reason? He does know that you are engaged doesn't he?” John asked setting down his silverware and leaning back in his chair.

“Yes John he does.” She said doing the same thing. She looked him in the eyes and had kind of annoyed look on her face, “John it is hard to miss, this ring on my hand.” She said holding up her left hand towards him.

“Why was he calling you at home Evangeline? You still haven't answered my question.”

“He was calling to see if I would consider becoming his lawyer permanently”

“What do you mean permanently?”

“Meaning, he would put me on retainer and salary for that matter, and I would help him with what ever legal problems he had.”

“And you are considering this?”

“Yes, John I am. I think it would be a great thing. “

“Evangeline you don't know anything about this guy. Why would you think about going to work for him now?”

“John, he is Alexis’ ex-husband, she trusts him and I trust her, why wouldn't I want this. It would be great for our future.”

“How so?” he asked with an annoyed look.

“How so, how so. How about the fact that we are getting married, and weddings cost money, and after the wedding or before it we are going to need to find a place to live and start a family. That is how so.”

“Don't get defensive.”

“Okay, I won't. But you have to admit that I make a good argument.”

“Well it is what you do for a living, so I expect nothing less from you.” He said with smile reaching for her hand.

“So what do you think?”

“When did you tell him that you would let him know, because I am assuming that you haven't given him an answer right?”

“Your assumption would be correct. We are in this together John, any career decisions that I need to make are going to affect not just me, but also you now. I understand that.”

“Well, I am glad. So how about this, let me do a background check on him before you accept the position.”

“And, if everything checks out to your satisfaction, I can take the job.”


“One more thing about this job that I think you should know about”

“What would that be?”

“Well, Jax works out of Port Charles….”

“Wait, wait are you telling me that you are moving to Port Charles?”

“Actually no I am not. He said that I can still live here. That would have been a breaking point. I love Llanview it is my home, you are my home there is no way I would leave it.”

“Are you sure about that. I don't want to hold you back from something.”

Evangeline got up from her seat and walked over towards John. He scooted his chair back and she sat on his lap. She stroked his hair, “John, you are not in the least bit holding me back. I love you and I love our life here. I want to raise our kids here.”

“Kids, who said anything about kids.”

“What you don't want kids?” she had a stunned look on her face. She always thought that John wanted kids, would this be the breaking point for them. Because she definitely wanted kids, and she only wanted to have them with John.

John looked down at her question. She put her hand on his chin and raised his head back up making his eyes meet hers.

“John I asked you a question, do you want to have kids?”

“I would love nothing more than for you to carry my children.” He said placing his hand on her stomach. “I want to practice making kids; I want to watch your stomach grow as our child grows within you. I can't wait until you send me running out at 3 am to get you pickles and ice cream.” He continued to rub her stomach thinking about a child growing in there in the near future.

“John, I don't like pickles and ice ream.”

“How would you know, I hear pregnancy does weird things to your appetite. But before we even think about starting a family I would like to get married first. I know we didn't do the dating thing in a traditional manner but this, marriage and kids I would like to do in a traditional manner.”

“Sounds like a plan. So you do the checking up on Jax tomorrow at work and let me know if you find anything that I should be worried about.” She said rising from his lap.

He pulled her back down, “Where do you think you are going?”

“John… I have to clean up before everything gets stuck to the dishes.”

“That can wait; I want the dessert you promised me now. He said leaning in for a kiss.

“Ohh you do? Do you?” she said in between kisses.

“Yeah.” He replied back not letting their lips part.

He took her arms and wrapped them around his neck and then placed his hands up under her legs and picked her up and carried her to the bedroom. He placed her on the bed and continued to kiss her. His hand moved down her body and slowly unbuttoned and unzipped her jeans. She wiggled out of them and they fell to the floor. He sat up and pulled off his shirt while she pulled off hers. He stroked her face and stared deeply into her eyes before kissing her deeply again. He kissed down her neck, her chest, and to her stomach. He stopped there looking back up at her and thinking about how a child would soon be growing in there. He returned his attention back to his beautiful future wife and pulled down her panties. They mad love all night and feel asleep in each others arms.

Jax sat the phone down his conversation with Evangeline had gone just the way he had planned. Before she knew and that cop fiancé of hers knew it, Evangeline would be his. He picked up the phone his private investigator that he had on staff.

“Hey, Adian.”

“Yeah, Jax what can I do for you man?”

“Listen I just hired a new lawyer to help with some things here in Llanview as well as Port Charles.”

“Yeah, what do you want me to run a background check on him for you?”

“Actually, it is a woman. But no I want you to do a background check on her fiancé. Names McBain, John McBain.”

“You got any other information for me to run with?”

“Actually no I don't, just that he is a cop in Llanview and I thought I might of overheard someone saying he use to work for the FBI.”

“That helps. I will let you know what I find out.”

“Great, and make it quick.”

“Sure.” Adian replied hanging up the phone.

“Chloe, can you come in here please?” Jax said into his intercom system.

“Yes, Mr. Jax what can I do for you?”

“I need you to draw up the employment papers for Ms. Williamson, she will be coming on board as my new attorney, and also send Alexis Davis some flowers with a note that reads, “Thanks for the lead.” Also send Ms. Williamson some flowers at her house, with a note saying, “Glad I got to you first.””

“Of course, anything else?”

“Yeah, make the flowers for Ms. Williamson the most expensive ones at the florist okay.”

“Sure thing.” Chloe said turning to walk out the door.

“Ohh, and Chloe.” Jax said stopping her in her tracks.


“After that take a couple of days off, take the jet where every you want. I will call you back when I need you.”

“Really sir?”

“Yeah of course, you have worked hard and put up with a lot from me you deserve it.”

“Thank you sir, thank you very much.”

Jax smiled back at Chloe as she shut the door.

“Well I can't very well have you around if I am going to make my move on Evangeline, now can I?” he said to himself.
