The Billionaire's Dance

By: Melody Anne

“Alex, what are you doing here?” she finally asked after composing her features.

He chose to ignore her question and repeated his, “I asked you, where’s my son?” He wasn’t the kind of guy to have any patience and he’d already missed out on her entire pregnancy as well as first three months of his son’s life. He wasn’t going to stand in the doorway and miss another moment.

Before she was able to say anything more, he heard a cry from inside the apartment. His eyes rounded with wonder, at the first sound he heard from his son. He was done standing in the doorway, so he grabbed Jessica by the waist and physically removed her from his path.

Jessica let out a shocked gasp and chased after him as he followed the sound of his son’s cry. “Alex, I did have a son but he isn’t yours,” she tried to lie to him. He’d reached the swing his son was in by that moment, staring in fascination at the tiny human in there.

The baby was wide awake and staring at his father, momentarily distracted from his angry howls at being left alone. At her words, Alex whipped his head around to glare at her. She took a step backwards at the violence in his expression.

“Do not lie to me for one more second. You’ve already stolen three months of my son’s life from me. You will not deceive me anymore,” he spat, with venom dripping in his tone.

She knew to try and deny it again would only unleash more of his anger so she sank to the couch, as her knees would no longer hold her up. She said nothing else, just watched as he stared at his son. The baby finally got tired of the staring game and let out a cry of displeasure. He wanted to be picked up.

Jessica started to rise to grab her son but Alex was already taking care of it. “Hey little guy, you want your daddy to pick you up?” he lovingly spoke to his son. The adoration in Alex’s voice brought tears to her eyes. He unlatched the safety belt and gently pulled Jacob from the seat.


“That’s grandpa’s sweet baby girl,” Joseph whispered as he nuzzled his only granddaughter, Jasmine. She coo’d up at him, while gripping his finger and tugging at his heart.

“Now that grandpa got your daddy and mommy married and gave grandpa you as an added bonus for Christmas last year, we have to start working on getting Uncle Alex a wife,” he continued talking, while tickling her tummy.

“I love you to pieces, Princess and I want a lot of cousins for you running around the house.” He continued talking to her as if she understood each and every word he was saying.

“I sure didn’t get any thanks from your mom and dad for their marriage but of course I’m not looking for a bunch of praise. My boys finding good women and giving me many grandkids to spoil is thanks enough,” he said. He smiled with pure joy while looking at Jasmine.

“Of course, a little thank you wouldn’t be so bad,” he muttered quietly.

“Well, I guess I’m going a bit off course here, aren’t I? I’ve found the perfect bride for your Uncle Alex and I have a feeling we’ll see a cousin for you in a year or so.” He chuckled as he pictured Alex and Jessica together.

Joseph had known Jessica since she was a newborn. He knew she and Alex would be perfect together. It was simply a matter of getting them in the same room so nature could take its course.

Joseph thought about Alex’s playboy lifestyle. It was time that boy settled down and got married.

Joseph loved his first granddaughter so much. His heart felt like it would burst when she was in his arms. He wanted that feeling with many, many more grandchildren.

“Joseph, did I just hear you plotting with your granddaughter about meddling in our son’s life?” Katherine said from outside the room, catching him off guard. He could hear the clear disapproval in her tone and knew he’d been caught.

“No, not at all dear,” Joseph said, as innocently as he could. “Jasmine and I were just discussing what a blessing she is in our lives,” he finished.

Katherine shook her head at her husband as she reached down to take their granddaughter into her arms. “Joseph, Jasmine is only three months old and isn’t discussing anything with you. She’s just happy to hear the sound of your voice, no matter what nonsense you’re spouting.” All sternness fell from her voice as she held the precious bundle close to her.

Katherine didn’t approve of her husband interfering in their children’s lives but she had to admit the end result of Lucas and Amy getting married and having precious little Jasmine was worth the troubles.

Joseph sighed at the sight of his beautiful wife holding their granddaughter. Life was certainly good. “Lucas will be back in a few minutes so help me get the baby changed,” Katherine said as she walked from the room.
