Together as One - Chapter 1

Surprise! For the readers of Winning Hearts... From Sammer Nasir.
Hey guys!

So I've got comments and emails from you guys saying that you guys miss Vanessa and Mark and honestly I miss them too! Normally I don't write sequels because I tried it once and then I got bored of the characters. But when I thought about writing of Mark and Vanessa, I got so many ideas so I thought why not?

Hope you guys enjoy and I'm not making any promises but I hope it's at least as good as 'Winning Hearts..'

*Mark's P.O.V*

"Sorry gentlemen but you're going to have to come up with a solution in the next hour." I look down the table at the six senior managers of my company. "I have an appointment right now. I'll be back in half an hour." I glance down at my phone as it starts ringing. Vanessa's name flashes on the caller I'd. I look up at Peter and he nods. "See you in a while." Leaving the boardroom, I switch on my phone. "Hey hun."

"Hey! What's up?? How'd the meeting go?"
"Good. Not done yet."
"So what's up?"
"Nothing. I just wanted to hear your voice."
"Aww.. You ready for tonight??"
"Yeah. I was wondering...."
"Vanessa stop worrying."
"But the kids-"
"Don't worry. Jasmin is going to be there, looking after them until Justin and Amber get there."
"Ok fine."

"Now all you have to worry about is what you're going to wear."
"I have to go hun. I'll see you when I get home."
"Okay. Love you."
Eight o'clock I get home, exhausted, but excited for tonight. It's been such a long time since Vanessa and I spent anytime alone."
As soon as I step inside, my three-year old daughter runs towards me and wraps herself around my legs.

"Hey princess."
"Dad's here!" Craig's shouts, running downstairs.
"Careful on the stairs." I lift Carly up just as Craig reaches us.
"Daf lift me up!"
"Okay. Just a second Carly." I set her on her feet and lift Craig up on my shoulders and then lift Carly up.
"Where's your Mom?"
"In the kitchen."
As I walk towards the kitchen, I glance at the mirror we pass by.

Craig was born five years ago. He has Vanessa's brown hair and silky brown curls framing his face. Although he looks a lot like me, he has many of Vanessa's features. Carly looks a lot like Lucy with caramel colored hair, but she has my gray eyes.

Reaching the kitchen, I watch Vanessa at the stove.
Not in a million years would I ever dream that I would have a family with the most amazing girl in the world.
