“Is it true you feel overwhelmed with the new baby and all?” Nubia asked Nikola one night before bed.
“A bit.” he admitted. “This dad thing is a whole other level.” he sighed and ran his hand through his hair.
“Why didn’t you tell me?”
“You’re so busy with your career I didn’t want to burden you.”
“My family could never be a burden to me Nik.” she sighed. “You can tell me anything you know that?”
“Yeah, I do.”
“So if you’re struggling I don’t want to hear it from a friend okay.”
“Deal! Let me make it up to you.” He said a mischievous smile playing on his lips.
Aya started coming over to help out when Nubia was at work. She didn’t have an ulterior motive, she really just wanted to help out and she took very good care of little Floki. However spending so much time alone with Nikola led to her flirting with him.
It started of as subtle jokes and sultry smiles. Then sometimes she would touch him gently while they spoke.
One night after putting Floki to bed, Aya stayed back to have drinks. They lost track of time and with the alcohol flowing through their systems they got a little carried away.
