The music played softly from the speakers on the computer monitor, filling up my heart with its lovely sound. "So beautiful," i whispered. "I wish that i could be even half as beautiful as that music."
"You could be if you didn't eat more than what i tell you you may," Ana smirked.
"You're far more beautiful than anything else in this world, my love," Jacob said, wrapping his strong (but slender) arms around my all-too-large waist.
"Oh shush," i told the both of them, believing Ana as i wished to believe Jacob.
"I mean it!" they said simultaneously.
I ignored Ana and asked Jacob, "How can you think i'm beautiful even though you can see my pudge?" I pinched the excess of my stomach just to prove my point.
His hand moved over my stomach, pushing my own hand away. "Stop that. There is no pudge."
"Lies," i retorted. "I know you can feel it."
He shook his head and looked me in the eye. "I would never lie to you, and you know it. I wish you could see yourself through my eyes. You'd see the most beautiful creation in this entire world. " His glorious brown eyes held nothing but truth.
"I wish i could too... And i wish Ana could as well."
He smiled with a hint of sadness, but kissed my lips with all the love in the world. "I'm going to find a way to make that happen somehow, sweetheart. I really am."
Ana snorted mockingly, but i clung to him as if my life depended upon it. "Just hold me," i whispered to him. "Hold me away from her."
She rolled her eyes and left the room. "I heard that," she said as she went through the door. "But don't worry. I'm not hurt; i know you'll be back to me soon as you always are."
I blinked back tears. How could she say i always came back when no matter how much i wanted to i never, ever left her in the first place?
