Chapter 4.9: Dear Diary, Not the Family Type

Marty and Beckett’s relationship continues, although, it is rocky. Marty sees who is crying at night!

1

Dear Diary, the next morning, I got up early because I was still a little unnerved by the crying I’d heard in the night. And Beckett had been no help at all. He insisted he hadn’t heard anything and thought I was dreaming. As if I don’t know when I’m awake or sleeping!

“What are you doing?” he asked. I hadn’t even noticed he was there, looking all indignant for some reason.

2

His question didn’t slow me down. “Eating breakfast.”

“I thought we’d have breakfast together.”

“So grab a bowl,” I suggested.

“Cereal?”

Finally, I looked up at him and his incredulous face. “What’s wrong with it?”

“I want a hot breakfast that will stick with me through the morning.”

“Well, I reckon you know where the stove is. I’m really not into cooking if you hadn’t noticed.”

3

When I was done eating, I put my spoon down and met his gaze across the table from me. “Why are you being so testy, Beckett? Not a morning person?”

“Quit making fun of me, Marty,” he laughed slightly. “I just thought we could continue the romance today and eatingΒ cold cereal wasn’t part of the plan.”

Was he serious? He wanted the romance to continue? I wanted to say so much right then. You know, Diary, how hard it is for me to hold my tongue.

“What?”

He shouldn’t have asked that because it was all I needed to let loose on him. “Honestly, Beck, the romance ended when you fell asleep last night! I mean, I know I’m not that experienced but I expected a little more than what I got.”

4

His face seemed to grow pinched as I sat there waiting for him to respond.

“Awww… c’mon,” he said stiffly, holding his shoulders back. “You know I was injured pretty bad and I’m still recovering. And don’t worry about the experience thing, you’ll get better.”

5

Clearly, I’d hit a nerve with him but I felt that what I’d said was true. Still, what he’d just expressed hit me square between the eyes and left me so off balance. I fought to keep tears back and willed myself to continue staring at him as I realized he’d fallen asleep because I was that bad.

“Sheesh, I didn’t mean it like that, I’m sorry,” he said. “Please forgive me.”

Still feeling wounded, I only nodded a little.

“Really, Marty, I’m sorry.”

“Okay,” I squeaked.

Gently, he took my hand across the table, caressing my smooth skin with his calloused thumb. “Let’s start over. I think being hit that hard in the head really did a number on me because I’m saying such stupid things lately.”

“Well, you’d better watch your mouth,” I said with a smile, “or I might be what hits you in the head next time.”

With that, he laughed and kissed my hand. I knew weΒ had put this behind us.

6

The next few days were so good, I can’t even tell you. There definitely was a strong attraction between us. So strong, that we were hardly apart. Every waking moment, my thoughts were about him. I don’t know if that is love, though. How do you know if you’re in love or if you’re with “the one?”

My mind was taken up by these thoughts constantly now. I only wished I knew what I was doing. Beckett was nearly one hundred percent recovered and I wanted to get back to my true love, work.

7

Beckett got out of the shower after me and watched me dry my hair as he toweled himself off.

“That is exactly how I love your hair, baby.”

Of course, I knew that. I’d been leaving it down more and more lately. I’d also been trying to dress better. I wish I could say it was only because it made me feel good, knowing I looked good. But the truth was, these were Beckett’s preferences. I was always much more comfortable with my hair pulled back off my face. There was something so annoying to me about having to constantly brush my hair back with my fingers.

8

Everything seemed to be going along smoothly the next several days and I was more accustomed to the house to the point where I no longer became lost if I wandered off on my own. Beckett and I spent a lot of time in what he called the game room. He liked mixing drinks and looked pretty dapper doing it. It was apparent to me now that all my previous reservations about Beckett were for nothing. He was a perfect gentleman and we loved the same things.

“Hello?” I breathed into the phone as it rang.

10

“Marty! Hello!”

My jaw dropped instantly and I grinned from ear to ear as a joy I hadn’t felt for a long time enveloped me, surrounding me inΒ a gentle, soothing warmth.

“Oh, Xalen, is that you?”

“Yes, yes, it is,” he chuckled, making me smile all over again. “You sound good! How are you?”

9

I don’t know why, but I hesitated. Why did I do that? Finally, I said, “I’m great, really great.”

This time, there was a pause on his end as if he didn’t believe me. “Are you sure? You sound … different.”

I laughed in the most carefree way I could muster and said, “Of course I’m sure. I – I just really miss the dig site and translating. I hope to get back to it really soon.”

11

“Ah, yes, I’m aware of what happened there with the remains that were found. It is the reason I, too, am in Egypt.”

“You’re here? Really?”

Again, he chuckled. “Yes, really. My team from the Neptune Foundation was called in on this matter.”

“What can you tell me about it? I’m dying to know what you’ve found out!”

13

“It’s not good, Marty, but I am not free to speak of any details yet. Trust me, though, as soon as I can, I will fill you in. I look forward to seeing you.”

I could feel tears in my eyes and I blinked them away. “I look forward to that, too.”

15

“Who was that?”

Beckett’s voice startled me a little bit as I’d forgotten he was in the room. “Oh, just an old colleague of mine.”

“A man?”

16

“Yes, so what?”

“You sounded pretty intimate there. Were you sleeping with him?”

“What? No! And why do you even think that’s your business?”

17

“It’s my business because now we’re together. Do you love him?”

I threw my shoulders back defiantly to hide the gasp I was trying desperately to hold inside.

18

“You do! I knew it! As soon as you heard who was on the other end of that call, I just knew it! Well, this isn’t how it’s going to be, Marty! You’re mine now and I won’t have it!”

19

“You won’t have it?” I yelled, totally losing it now. “You don’t have a choice! You don’t own me!”

20

“I love you!” he yelled, inching his face closer to mine. “We’re going to get married and be happy!”

“You need to step back now! I don’t think you love me at all! And besides, I don’t want to get married. I don’t want to have children. I am not the family type!”

23

To my amazement, he covered his eyes with his hands as if he was breaking down.

“All I want is you. Why isn’t that good enough?” he moaned.

Sighing, I stepped away from him. “You exhaust me.”

24

Wiping his face with the backs of his hands, he stood up straight and looked pleadingly into my eyes. “I’m so sorry, please forgive me. I know I overreacted.”

“I don’t know. This isn’t the first time and it’s getting old. I need to be alone for a while.”

26

But when I headed outdoors, instead of leaving me alone, he followed me. He was the most irritating, impossible human being, yet I cared for him deeply. Over the past months, since I’d come here to take care of him after the accident, he’d grown on me. And I found that incredibly annoying because it would have been much easier to walk away from him if he meant nothing.

28

“I told you I wanted to be alone.”

As I said that, he abruptly fell into my arms, burying his face against my shoulder. Instead of making me angry, though, I slowly put my arms around him, wondering what the matter was.

29

“What is going on?”

“Please, I can’t go on knowing you don’t forgive me. Please, don’t leave me.”

30

“I saved your life because I love you, Marty. I love you so much and I can’t live without you.”

31

I said nothing as he pulled away, drying his eyes again.

“I really am sorry,” he said quietly.

“What is making you act this way? I don’t understand it.”

He sighed, returning slowly to his normal demeanor. “I don’t always either. Honestly, I think my dad messed me up. I’m the black sheep of the family. I think with you, though, I could finally measure up.”

32

I didn’t know what to say but I felt sorry for him and what he was going through. I believed him about his father.

“Why don’t you ever mention your mother?”

His beautiful eyes became downcast as he took my hands. “Let’s not talk about her, okay? Being her son’s no prize either.”

34

“I want you to do something for me.”

“Anything,” he agreed.

“I want you to look me in the eyes and tell me you won’t treat me like this again.”

33

“I promise.”

And I believed him.

35

It was pitch black and I hadn’t heard the crying again. Until tonight. It woke me out of a fitful sleep and I sat straight up, straining to hear where it was coming from. Beckett had been drinking, I could smell it on him and I also couldn’t wake him up. So, I left him there, snoring away and annoyed that he was in such a condition.

I knew my way around now and pushed my fear aside to try to find the source of this nighttime wailing. Without a sound, I crept from hall to hall, room to room, carefully opening doors and peeking inside with my flashlight.

Nothing. No crying and no crazy woman hiding in any corner.

There was one staircase left that led to the attic. Pausing at the bottom, I began to hear the sobbing again, but it was fainter, so I began to climb the stairs. They were cold under my feet as I moved upward and a chill filled my insides. But I forced myself to go on.

Nothing could describe the horror I encountered when I reached the top….

Author’s Note: I would like to shout out a special thanks to Lil who made the ghost gif at the end since my photoshop took a nosedive and died. lol Thank you, Lil!

  1. Okay, so Beckett’s annoying me. He’s such a brat and I somehow get a Dax feeling from him and yet…I liked Dax so much better until…well, until he truly was there for Blue, that is. But Beckett, I can’t bring myself to trust him. He’s so arrogant and a little…sexist? He clearly doesn’t know Marty that well, expecting her to cook for him. What about the lasagna? Lucky you didn’t burn your house, darlin’, lol. Oh, the woohoo in a shower! Can’t help but love how that animation with the Sims lagging so much, LOL.
    I feel like Beckett is playing on Marty’s emotions, wanting her to feel sorry for him and then what? What does he want from her?
    OH MY, GHOST! RUN LIKE A MAD TO XALEN RIGHT NOW! :O

That will be revealed but Marty really needs to decide, I think, how much she is willing to put up with in this situation.

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ˜€ I hate men like that, too. ugh

      You are so right and I’m glad you brought up the point about the emotional blackmail. He’s really good at it because otherwise, I think Marty would have been out of there already. And I think you’re right about whether he really loves her or not. I think he may think he does, but if he did, he wouldn’t do this to her.

      Yes! The good doctor is back! Woot! I’ve been waiting for this reunion, too!

      And yes! I can say that is a ghost! But who’s ghost is it? And why can Marty see it and hear it? And why is the ghost crying? And is Beckett telling the truth when he says he doesn’t hear it?

      Oh the questions, the questions. lol

  4. Beckett is a creep for sure! He’s so controlling and possessive, and he’s way too devoted to someone he really doesn’t know all that well. This is going to turn ugly extremely quickly, I can tell.

    Yay for Xalen! He’s far less creepy and a lot more likeable.

    Oh, the ghost! Considering how shady Beckett is and the corpse found at the dig site, I’m beginning to wonder if the ghost was murdered by Beckett. Murdering an ex love doesn’t sound too far fetched, considering his behavior so far.

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ™‚ You are right about Beckett, definitely. Let’s hope it doesn’t get too ugly in the future, but I can’t promise it won’t.

      I say YAY for Xalen, too! I really couldn’t wait to bring him back into the story.

      As far as the ghost goes, I wish I could tell you. I can say, though, since I already confirmed to someone else, there is no Blackbeard stuff going on. So, with that in mind, your guesses are good (and logical) but might not be exactly right. πŸ™‚

And no matter how strong and successful and smart Marty is, she’s up against a master at the cycle of control and power . Her strength and talents make her just the type of target that type of abuser seeks to take down .

      1. I got goose bumps at the end…I didn’t expect a ghost. I don’t know if that is better or worse than what I did expect! Haha!

        I feel horrible that he has been able to manipulate her, but he is her first lover so that gives him a lot of power. Certainly she was feeling inadequate and he played on it masterfully. He is sick SOB!

        I am soooo glad Xalen is back. It frightens me that if she crosses him a little she could wind up a ghost as well. And of course we all think he was responsible for the skeleton in the dig.

        And does his father know or was he responsible as well…or his mother…so many unanswered questions…I think maybe the ghost is his mother….

  9. I’m sure you know now what I feel about Beckett…haha. HOWEVER, allow me to complain about him again. Even if Xalen wasn’t in the picture and I didn’t think he was perfect for Marty in every way, I would find it hard to like this guy. He’s so manipulative! The way he goes from zero to sixty so fast is such a clear sign that he doesn’t love her, he just wants to control her. I don’t know what his father did and I’m sure it’s probably messed up, but Marty is not the kind of girl that can fix his issues! She’s too strong willed. She needs a man that is equal to her, not a whiny little puntz that needs coddling. >.> I’m sure he’s someone’s turn-on, but I don’t think it’s Marty. Anyway, I’m done. For now.

  11. Beckett is a mess and not a good one!! I married a rich guy that pressured me like that and I regretted it almost immediately. He was condescending and demeaning which left me feeling valueless. No, this is not for Marty, plus if you have to change that much about yourself to please someone then, unless it’s what you really want anyway and just needed advice on, then it’s not where you should be.
    I am extremely curious to know what Xalen knows and more details on how he became involved.
    And… Noooo, how could you leave us hanging like that?!!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving girl and look forward to the next segment.

  12. Okay.
    Beckett.
    GO.
    AWAY.
    I’ve lost any bit of affection I had from their time excavating. He disgusts me. He’s manipulative, possessive and also seems rather sexist. Making her wear her hair down, expecting her to make him a hot breakfast, wanting to get married after a short period of romance, the accusations when Xalen called… it’s soooo gross. I can see that Marty is detecting the signs of a bad person but she’s not acting on them properly. I’m glad she spoke her mind but if she doesn’t just plain get out of there, I feel like things are going to get extremely bad soon. Go to Xalen! I’m still a tiny bit doubtful of the age gap, but Marty’s a grown adult now, so it’s not that weird anymore. It’s really obvious from that way she felt when Xalen called her, that she feels much more comfortable with him. He’s genuinely kind and definitely not a creepster like Beckett is.
    I wonder what news Xalen will unearth on the skeleton. And I wonder what’s up with the ghost… maybe Beckett murdered her? The ghost looks like she’s wearing long hair down… hmm.

    Everyone else has certainly covered it all pretty well!! I see a confrontation coming between Xalen and Beckett. I think Xalen truly cares for Marty and wants what’s best for her, and for her to be happy (which is more about love than Beckett has been showing!). When he sees through the facade, he will know she isn’t truly happy about being “owned” by Beckett. If they did marry, I’m afraid Beckett would end up a ghost when Marty really got fed up with him, finally!! lol For some reason, probably partially due to Beckett’s reticence when Marty mentioned it, I think the ghost might be his mother. He is, truly, a mess! But he is a conniving, narcissistic one! Nope, don’t like him one little bit, now. I hope this week goes quickly, can’t wait for the next chapter!!! And kudos to l”il for the great gif!! Happy Thanksgiving! β™₯

But I wonder if it will be completely because of the reason you think? πŸ˜€ I think Xalen does sense that whatever is going on with Marty, she isn’t being truthful about how she is doing. He’ll definitely want to know why! Let’s hope Marty and Beckett don’t get married. I think that would be a nightmare for them both! lol

      LOL I love that – don’t you know you’re the heir? Maybe she was daydreaming when Blue explained things to her. haha

      Yes, Beckett! Get a psychiatrist immediately! LOLOL

      As far as the ghost goes, that is a great guess. πŸ˜€

          Okay, I looked it up and it does seem very irritating and frustrating! I hope it is something that will go away so you don’t suffer with it for much longer.

          1. I wish. They say there’s nothing to be done about it except practice “good sleep hygiene” which does help. I don’t suffer from it as often as I used to before I was diagnosed, but it sneaks up on me every now and then…like last night!

            1. Oh no! I’m glad you don’t have episodes as often now but when they happen, it’s got to be awful.

  22. I’m getting “Dax after he became beautiful and left Blue but returned to basically tell her he loved her” vibes from Beckett. He’s kind of losing points with me but I can understand how he is feeling. I’m also happy that Xalen is back but I also want him to be a villain in this story for some strange reason. He just looks like an evil dude, even though he’s probably not.

    1. Oh yeah, I see the comparison now that you mention it. lol Xalen does look like he could be a villain, doesn’t he? I agree with that. πŸ˜€
