Sliding Doors- Part 2

She was lying in his arms when the sun came up the next morning. Though her heart wanted to stay there forever, her head knew she didn't have much time. She broke free of his hold and kissed him on the cheek before moving downstairs with her laptop. There simply had to be something that would tell her how to change the future in just a few short days. She just prayed it would be enough.


Nora accompanied Bo as they joined the rest of the crowd at Kevin's gravesight. She was holding his hand the whole time, a part of her aching for Viki and Clint. She wanted so bad to be able to tell them the good news, afraid that it would be too much to deal with at this moment. Bo could see the tears in her eyes, and he knew exactly what she was thinking. He wrapped his arm around her as they tried to keep it together. After the service was over and they gave their sympathies he whisked her away from the crowd. She felt her knees go weak as he pulled her into a passionate kiss. She looked into his eyes, breathless.

Nora: Not that I'm complaining... But WOW. What was that for?

Bo: I know you wish we could tell them honey; So do I. But they just lost their son and I don't think now would be the right time.

Nora: I get it Bo. I really do.

Bo: You always have. (They kiss) I think It's time we did a little celebrating though?

Nora: You do huh? What have you got in mind cowboy?

Bo: Well I think I'd like to suprise you. Do you think you can handle that?

Nora: As long as you're attached at the end of that suprise then I can handle anything?

Bo: well that sure makes my heart skip a beat. Come here you...

They start to kiss again before she pulls away and looks into his eyes.

Nora: Is that dessert or the main course?

Bo: That my dear is an appitizer.

Nora(Giving him that sexy grin): I can't wait.


Nora snapped back to reality when she felt Bo's kisses on her neck. she turned around to face him with a look of terror in her eyes.

Bo: Honey, what's wrong? I know that look. And it scares me half to death. Is something going on inside that sexy brain of yours?

She looked at him for a minute, considering telling him the truth, ultimately deciding against it. For now, the research would have to wait.

Nora: I don't want to go to Lindsay's gallery opening.

He looked at her as he tried to read what was written on her face. He had always love dhow they could read each other so well; why was it so hard to tell now?

Bo: Is that it? Honey, if you don't want to go then we won't. I know there's no love lost between you two.

She kissed him gently on the lips before falling into his arms for a hug.

Bo: There. Do you feel better now?

Nora: I little.

Bo: Ok? Is there more?

Nora: I think we should have a party of our own that night... to celebrate.

Bo: Celebrate? what exactly are we going to celebrate honey?

Nora: My pregnancy


Bo sat in shock as he read the words scribbled on the pad.

Dearest Bo,

I wish to God you never had to read what I'm about to say. But the truth is that I'm a coward and I couldn't bear to say it to your face. I know you are probably wondering what could possibly have sent me running and I apoligize in advance. I love you Bo Buchanan. There has never been a day in my life that I didn't. If you doubt anything in this letter please don't doubt that. You have given me more love than I deserve and I will spend the rest of my life wishing that It could be different. You'll be in my heart forever Commish. And I'll never forget you.

He wiped the tears as they began to fall from his face.

Bo: She's saying goodbye? Aw Red, why are you doing this? Why?

He braced himself for the worst as he continued reading the letter.

Now I suppose it is time for the reason I am saying goodbye to the best love I've ever known. Don't blame yourself Bo. This is not about you. It's about me. You see, the simple truth is that I just don't deserve you anymore. I took that enormous heart of yours and broke it in more ways than I care to recall. There is no easy way to tell you what I've done so I guess I'll just have to say it. I cheated on you Bo. I slept with Sam.

He felt his heart constrict as he read those words over and over again. " I slept with Sam." He couldn't believe what he was hearing. Of all the times she swore to him that it was over, of all the times she had promised him that he was her future, now she was saying it was a lie. But How? How was it possible that the woman who believed in honesty and trust could be a first class lier? How could he have fallen for her lies for so long? There had to be more to the story... There had to be some sort of mistake? Ignoring the pain in his heart he kept reading, despite the urge to stop and avoid any more pain.

I know you probably won't believe me but I ned to say it now. This had nothing to do with sam.

Bo: You're right Nora. I don't believe you.

 He goes back to the letter.

Everything I ever told you about us was true. I don't love him. I'm not sure I ever did. I just wanted you to come back to me. I know I should have trusted in you more. I know I should have believed that you'd come back for me. But I didn't Bo. I wanted you to believe that I was pregnant so you'd fight. Well it worked. You did come back. The only trouble was that I wasn't pregnant. I tried to tell you that when you wound up in the hospital but your heart couldn't take it. I took that as a sign. That's when I realized that I had to pull a baby out of a hat. And everything would have been fine if Asa hadn't told me you couldn't have children. That's when I turned to Sam. I'll let you put the rest together Bo. You're a smart man with so much to offer. I wish I could be the one in you're life Bo but I know that I can't. Just know that I'm truley sorry for hurting you. It really wasn't my intention. Just so you know, I will be moving to chicago by the time you read this letter. If by some miracle you decide you can forgive me then you know where to find me. I love you Bo. That will never change. I hope that somehow you will be able to find the happiness you deserve... even if it's not with me. Goodbye my love. I will always remember everything you've given me.


He put down the letter and stared into the night. How was it possible that he could go from being so happy to being completely miserable? And why did he hate her for being the coward? He wished he could scream at her right now? Tell her how he really felt... The only problem was that he knew he couldn't hate her... Somehow he knew he would always be in love with the firey red head that had captured his heart. So what on earth was he going to do about it? Right now he just didn't know.


Bo: Nora? Nora?

She was snapped back into reality by her very worried husband.

Nora: What? did you say something?

Bo: Nora, you're really starting to scare me. Is something wrong with you?

Nora: Sweetheart, I'm fine. Really.

Bo: Are you sure?

Nora: Yeah, I am. I just want to know about that party.

Bo: If it will make you feel better, we can at least try to have it. Lindsay's not going to be too happy you know?

Nora: I don't give a dam about Lindsay.

Bo: So, are you really pregnant?

Nora(Smiling): I will be by then...

Bo: Ok? How do you know?

Nora: Call it a feeling Bo... You do trust me don't you?

Bo: Of course I do. I'm just a little worried about you, that's all.

Nora: how about we go upstairs and I'll put all your worries to rest?

Bo: You just read my mind... (They kiss)

Bo carried her upstairs and they made love without another word about anything.

To Be Continued.
