{{ Place of Origin }}
Dorchester in Boston, MA

{{ History }}
Blake grew up in Dorchester in a one bedroom apartment with her drug-addicted mother and older brother. Blake was a mischievous child, though she knew her limits and her brother did what he could to keep her out of too much trouble. However, when Blake's mother died when she was 15, her brother became distant, and they both started down a road of drug addiction, unfortunately following in their mother's footsteps.

When Blake was 18, she and her "boyfriend" at the time decided to run away together, and they ended up in Weston, MA. He told her that he would buy her one of the mansions that was there. During the time that they were there, they went to a party at some rich kid's house. In the midst of the party, Blake's "boyfriend" decided to ditch with a girl he'd met there. Upset by the fact that he'd had the audacity to do so, she decided to meet someone herself. That night, she met Malik, and little did she know that he'd become her boyfriend for the next five years.

Throughout their relationship, they fought about anything and everything, little or big, it didn't matter what it was. What kept them together was the fact that they both knew that they loved each other, flaws and all. However, five years of fighting began to take its toll, and Blake decided to sign them up for a counseling retreat. She knew deep down that if their relationship kept up the way it was, she'd end up losing Malik and that was a thought she couldn't bear to think.

{{ Happiest Memory }}
The first time she saw the stars. She had snuck out of the house with her older brother to go to a rundown park near their home in Boston. She was 7 years old, and she'll never forget how happy she was to see all of the twinkling dots of light in the sky.

{{ Saddest Memory }}
The day her mother died. Blake was 15 years old, and she and her brother were left to fend for themselves. This event was what truly started Blake's aggressive and rebellious nature.

{{ Family Tree }}
Mother | Janna Kronin
Father | Unknown
Brother | Nathan Kronin | 29 years old | Location Unknown

▪ He's too much of a perfectionist. ▪

{{ Happiest Memory }}
Their first date. He cooked for her and played her music and sang. She'll never forget that night because it was the night she fell in love with him, even though at the time she wouldn't have thought it was love.

{{ Saddest Memory }}
The first time she hit him during an argument. Even though they fought most of the time, she wishes she could take that first hit back because it led to a few more physical fights down the road.

Blake stretched her arms and looked at the clock on her bedside. 8:15 A.M. It's still pretty early, she thought to herself. She turned over and attempted to fall back asleep; however she found it to be a difficult task and gave up. She looked to her right at Malik. He was still asleep; she smiled. She sat up and tousled her hair, pushing the front of it back and out of her face. She was in one of Malik's old dress shirts; it was her favourite thing to sleep in. She looked at him again and smirked to herself. She lifted her left leg over him, straddling him over the covers. She leaned in close to his face and kissed the corner of his mouth. One of the sleeves of the shirt she was wearing fell off of her shoulder a bit, but she didn't bother fixing it. "Wake up, My King," she said softly in his ear before kissing it. They may fight on a constant basis, but Blake really did love Malik with her entire heart, which was why they were at Hope Springs in the first place.

Just then, there was a light knock at their door. She huffed, blowing a stray strand of her hair back only to have it fall back into her face again. She lifted herself off of Malik and walked to the door. She cracked it open, hiding behind the door so that no one would see her in her underwear. She peeked out into the hallway but didn't see anyone. She looked down to see a letter on the ground, and she picked it up, trying to be careful not to accidentally reveal herself still. She shut the door and opened the letter. An itinerary? Awesome.. She sighed before returning to the bed where Malik was still laying. She laid down next to him on her stomach, propping herself up on her elbows so that she could look at him.

"MJ, we should get ready. Apparently breakfast is at 9 A.M.," she said, a slight sound of disappointment in her voice. She gave him a kiss on the lips before getting up and heading toward the shower. After having showered, she got dressed in a pair of high top denim shorts, a black crop top, and flats. She found the coffee pot in the little kitchenette and brewed a full pot. After looking through a couple of the cabinets, she found two white ceramic mugs. She poured herself a cup and poured another for Malik, stirring in a spoonful of sugar and some french vanilla coffee creamer into both. The smell of the coffee alone was enough to start to wake her up.

She carried both mugs over to the bed, where Malik still was, and she set his on his nightstand, holding her own as she sat down on the edge of the bed next to him. She glanced at the clock again. 8:35 A.M. "Come on, MJ. Drink your coffee and get ready. We have to be down there by 9 A.M. It's 8:35 now." She patted his stomach and stood up, drinking her coffee as she walked back to the kitchenette. Once she was finished, she rinsed her cup out and left it in the sink. She went into the bathroom to brush her teeth and put on makeup. She gathered her long hair into a messy ponytail and made sure she hadn't gotten toothpaste on her shirt.

A monkey in a tux, a dog with a vet degree, and a cat playing a banjo. All the makings of Malik's very odd dream. The slight pressure and whisper did little to wake him, yet a small smile still came to his face before disappearing back to sleep as the pressure removed herself to go check the door. A moment later his eyes pealed open and stared at Blake as she warned. Breakfast; 9 am. Got it, Malik noted on a mental notepad. But sleep still called him. Malik was one of those people that liked to sleep all day and party all night. Mornings were not his strong suite.

He ended up falling back asleep only to be woke up again by the smell of coffee. He stayed laying down but he was nice and awake by the near smell of the drug that everyone seems to forget is a drug, but hearing what time it was and how much time he had let a disappointed groan escaped its sleep. He was already not wanting to get up and now he had so little time to get ready. At least Blake made him coffee. He would have continued sleeping if she hadn't been here.

A few moments after Blake left his side again, Malik slowly sat up to stretch. "Today I don't feel like doing anything," He sang softly, warming up his voice then taking a moment to take a few sips of his coffee. "I just want to lay in my bed," He added, becoming a bit more upbeat at the intake of coffee. "Don't feel like picking up my phone so leave a message at the tone," He sang, a bit more awake now as he stood and stretched a little bit more then took a few more sips of coffee. He went to his bags and started looking through them for an outfit. "'Cause today I," He paused, pulling out the outfit and beginning to put it on. "I feel good! Whoa!" He jumped into a little dance as he pulled his clothes on. "I knew that I would, now," He paused, pulling on his tie. "Ooh, I feel nice," He looked in a mirror, running his fingers in his hair to get it looking a little better. "Like sugar and spice," He did a little dance, getting tickled at himself in the mirror.

He went into the bathroom behind Blake and began to brush his teeth, still singing in a slurry mess. "So gud, so gud, I got yooou!" He sang, his eyes on Blake through the mirror while he brushed his teeth, laughing as he finished up. It would be a lie to say he wasn't happy to be here. But he's also a bit cautious of what's to come. He didn't want to make things worst.

As Malik was singing, Blake couldn't help but smile. "You are such a dork, My King," she said, turning to him and putting her arms around his neck lightly. She looked at his face and smiled before kissing him on the lips. "Come on. We should get down to breakfast," she said, smacking his butt as she walked out of the room and towards the front door. She turned and grabbed his hand to pull him along. "I know you're still pretty much asleep, but we have to follow the itinerary. I'm not excited about it either...." She sighed and opened the door, leading them towards the banquet hall.

When they arrived, Blake couldn't believe her eyes. "This place is a lot fancier than I expected.. Do you think I'm under dressed??" she asked nervously, pulling at the hem of her shorts, attempting to pull them down a bit. They sat down at one of the tables, and a waitress came over to them fairly promptly and handed them menus, asking for their drink orders. "Uhm.... Just coffee and water for me.. How about you, MJ?"

When they had finished with their drink orders, Blake opened up the menu and was surprised by all of the different options that were given. "Baby, I'm not all that hungry to be honest.. Do you wanna share something?" she offered, battering her long eyelashes at Malik, hoping he would say yes. "We don't have to if you're hungry enough, though. I can always order something small...." She continued to scan the menu, completely unsure of what she was going to do. After a few minutes, she piped up: "I think I'm just going to do the latter. Get whatever you want, My King," she said, smiling and reaching across the table to squeeze his hand. She was being a little more lovey dovey than usual, but she couldn't help it. She was nervous, but most of all she didn't want to lose Malik.

The waitress came back not too long after, requesting their orders. "Can I just get a Belgian waffle, please? With the, uhm, boysenberry syrup? Thanks, hun." Blake took a deep breath, hoping that breakfast would wake her, but especially Malik up a bit. Wonder what the day has in store for us. I hope the group session goes well, she thought to herself as she unconsciously started nervously twirling strands of her hair around her fingers.

The little things are what count in Malik's opinion. The little things are always the best and most loving. If Malik wasn't half asleep, he would of said something. He only managed to groan as Blake pulled him along to where they group was suppose to meet. The hall was amazing. Malik was rich, and therefore surrounded by rich, extravagant things. But this place had an exotic feel to it. It reminded him of the time his family went and stayed at a resort that took up the mass of the island. This place was amazing, just his taste.

His eyes drifted to Blake as she mumbled something about being under-dressed then fumbled with her shorts. The sight of someone like her trying to pull her shorts down more to seem more acceptable brought a humoured look to Maliks face. "You look gorgeous, babe, don't be nervous," Malik murmured. He could understand her being a little nervous, especially around new people, but these were probably people who had tons of problems with their relationships and wouldn't care about what one of the other couples are wearing. Maybe she has a point. We don't want to be judged, Malik nodded to himself. What happened next Malik, personally, was not expecting. He expected waiters, yes, but to have one to the table so fast was like being at one of the expensive restaurants he loved so much.

After being prompted to order drinks, in which Malik ordered a pink lemonade and a water since he's fabulous like that, he took the time to look turn his head and look around from his seat. He couldn't see many other people, just one other couple. That was enough to make him look back to Blake as she finished speaking. His initial response was to hearing her come to a conclusion that he wasn't quite sure how she came to was oh, uh, okay, but he prompted to just nodding slightly and smiling at the pet name.

When the waitress came back for their orders. As Blake ordered, Malik grabbed her menu, putting it on top of his and handed it to the waitress. It was the least he could do. He watched Blake with a content smile as she ordered then looked up at the waitress. "I'll have the same, please. Thank-you," Malik said in a confident, no-longer tired voice and a confident smile. He couldn't help but laugh slightly as he sat back and looked at Blake. She looked so nervous through his eyes. It was unbelievably cute.

"So," Malik says, leaning forward. "What's on the agenda for today, Bae? It better be good, with making us get out here so early for breakfast."

Blake was surprised when Malik ordered the same thing as her. Probably too tired still, she thought to herself, a small smile forming on her lips. "So what's on the agenda for today, Bae? It better be good, with making us get out here so early for breakfast." She leaned forward as well so that their faces were closer. "Poor baby. Not getting his beauty sleep," she half-joked, lightly patting his face with her hand. She knew that Malik always needed "enough sleep," or he'd be sleepy the rest of the day. She pulled the itinerary out of her pocket, though she didn't remember putting it there exactly, so she assumed she'd done it absentmindedly. "Let's see. We have breakfast at 9 A.M. until 11 A.M. 11 A.M.?? Who the hell takes two hours to eat some damn food?" She shook her head in annoyance, rolling her eyes before continuing. "After breakfast, we have the group session until 3 P.M., and, uh, after that it looks like we have free time until 8 P.M. That's when we have some dinner thing we have to go to. Ugh. I hate this itinerary crap," she said, tossing the paper onto the table angrily. "Who's idea was this again? Mine? God, what was I thinking?"

When their breakfast arrived, Blake was beyond grateful. She was suddenly starving for whatever reason. She immediately ate her waffle after meticulously filling each waffle indent with the boysenberry syrup. She couldn't help making "mmmm" sounds as she ate. "Is it just me, or is this the best waffle I've ever eaten, I don't know, ever??" She couldn't put her finger on why the food tasted so good. She leaned slightly over her plate, making sure she could whisper so Malik would hear but also making sure she wouldn't run her shirt through syrup. "What if it's really good because they lace this shit with drugs, MJ. Think about it," she whispered, giggling at herself.

When she finished her food, she leaned back in her chair. "Dammit. I'm still hungry," she said, putting her hand on her stomach. "I'm going to go see if I can get a bowl of fruit or something. I'll be back, baby," she said, getting up to search for a waitress. When she finally found one, she asked her if she could get some fruit or something. "Absolutely. I'll bring it out to your table, Miss," the girl said, smiling. "Thank you. You're a saint!" Blake said happily, lightly squeezing the girl's shoulders in appreciation, holding back the urge to full on hug the poor girl. What's with me? she thought to herself as she headed back to the table.

A few minutes later, the waitress came back with a large bowl filled with all sorts of diced up fruits. "Thanks, dear!" Blake said as she left. "MJ, we have to tip that girl well," Blake said, already stuffing pieces of fruit into her mouth. "She's a god-send," she mumbled, her mouth full.

"Yes I'm ready! Let's get going!"

Lindsey frowned at his childish movements, and sighed as she shut the door behind them as they left the room. When they arrived at breakfast, they were the last ones. As usual, it seemed. "This way." Lindsey already felt her blood starting to pump as he hesitantly touched her. "Okay!" She swatted at his hand, and sighed, sitting in her seat rather forcefully. She scanned over the menu quickly, ordering just some oatmeal, which made her frown as she thought of her grandmother.

As they ate, she stayed quiet, not really wanting to talk. She was sure that the other couples were silently judging as they all seemed to be.. too.. happy with one another. Lindsey rolled her eyes at the thought of the group discussion. The things her and Jay talk about are private, right? Soo.. why should four strangers suddenly know about her fear of having children? She scoffed as she played the visions in her head of all the possible scenarios that could go wrong today.

Her hands started to nervously play with one another, and she felt uncomfortable in the chair. They laid in her lap, and she felt her fingernails digging into her jeans. She had scars on her legs from where she's done this for years. Her eyes widened, and she put a hand on the table, forcefully holding Jay's. "I'm sorry."

Lori nodded as Will said he presumed today would be awkward. "As long as the screaming couple isn't us." She added as the waitress came in with the food. She attempted to not count calories as she bit into some sort of sweet bread. The truth was she was nervous and had good reason to be. I mean this trip would decide if she got over her fears and married Will or not. That was a lot of pressure.

"You know, I think the last time I had maple syrup was when you were in the hospital with Mia. And that doesn't even count because that was like eating slightly maple flavored water on soggy cardboard." Lori grinned widely at Will. I think they both could agree that was the happiest day of their lives. For Lori it was because she gave birth to Mia and she realized she loved Will for the first time. "You totally deserved those pancakes. I was super mean when I was in labor." She scrunched her nose up and frowned, "I kept screaming 'your all bitches' because they wouldn't give me drugs. I requested they didn't but still. " She shrugged lightly at the memory before continuing to eat.

As they finished their breakfast a woman approached the front of the room. She was a bit too pretty for Lori's liking but that was besides the point. She cleared her throat and expertly hit a gong in the center of the room. "Hello I am Doctor Marla Hunt" The Woman said with a wide grin. Please feel free to finish your breakfasts but head down to the Serenity Hall so we may begin our group therapy session. With that she turned and walked out the banquet hall. The staff quickly began to shuffle to clear out tables, probably off to prepare for the feast that would be on the beach later that night.

Lori stood up and tucked a stray hair behind her ear. She walked over to Will's side of the table and leaned down to kiss him. "It'll be fine Will, we're in this together." She said with a light pinch to his cheeks. Lori was super nervous but she felt like it was all worth it if she got to keep Will. As they walked out of the banquet hall she spotted the females from before still eyeing him. "Whatever I guess I should take it ass a compliment" She said with a sigh. Didn't stop her from giving him a very heated kiss right in front of them but it was progress.

As they entered the banquet Hall Lori took a seat away from the Doctors direct line of sight and motioned for Will to sit next to her "Ready for this? I mean today might completely change everything" She whispered in his ear, noting that the doctor spotted them immediately

"Poor baby. Not getting his beauty sleep," Blake half-joked. "Looks like these," Malik motioned to his face. "Take time to make happen, baby," He let out a small chuckle then listened to Blake as she explained what was planned for the day. The thing that caught his ear was group session. He then watched as she angrily tossed the paper down then, with just as much anger, asked a few questions. Malik decided to respond to the last one about what she was thinking and sat back in his chair. "Yeah, what were you thinking? Group sessions? What is this, an AA resort?" He paused a moment, looking around briefly. "I really don't want to deal with these people," He mumbled, mostly to himself. And their judging, He added internally. Part of him didn't want to blame Blake, but it was her idea.

When the food came, the whole mood shifted. He didn't realize how hungry he was until it was in front of him. Opting to just a small amount of syrup, Malik slowly cut and ate his food, eyeing Blake when as she moaned slightly over the taste of the waffles. Ooh-kay... Malik thought, an eyebrow quirking up slightly. He couldn't help but laugh slightly at her small, joking theory about why the food tasted so good. Personally, Malik didn't feel it, it was just waffles. And this was strange.

Now the shocking part happened. Malik was full after he finished his food, but Blake was still hungry. He just watched her in mixed shock as she got up and walked away. She came back and, soon enough, was saying they should tip the girl. "Okay, what's with you?" He said in confusion. Shortly after, some lady, a Doctor apparently, came in saying where they should go to meet for the group sessions. Shortly after she left, Malik stood up, pushed in his chair, and stood by the table. "You ready to get our group session on?" He asked, busting a small move before laughing at himself slightly. If he couldn't do that, he'd be a nervous wreck.

"Okay, what's with you?" Malik said, a tone of confusion underneath the sound of his voice. "What do you mean 'what's with me?'?" Blake asked, furrowing her eyebrows and shoving the rest of the fruit into her mouth. It felt like they'd been at breakfast for forever, and Blake was still kind of hungry. "You ready to get our group session on?" Malik asked, dancing a little and laughing. "Ugh.. Can't you take anything seriously, MJ? For Christ's sake." Blake rolled her eyes. Your inability to take shit seriously is part of the reason I signed up for this damn trip in the first place, she thought to herself, a slight air of anger on her face. She quickly shook it off, trying to make sure Malik didn't see her anger and get uneasy or something.

Just then, a very energetically happy woman walked into the room. "Hello I am Doctor Marla Hunt. Please feel free to finish your breakfasts but head down to the Serenity Hall so we may begin our group therapy session." There was something a little too cheery about the Doctor as she smiled at everyone in the banquet hall. She leaned in close to Malik. "I don't know if this was such a good idea after all. She kind of give me the creeps with how smiley she is," Blake said quietly, almost whispering, making a slightly unsure facial expression.

Blake noticed that one of the couples had gotten up and followed the Doctor. "I guess we should head in, huh?" she said, standing and interlacing her fingers with Malik's, leading them towards where the other couple and the Doctor had gone. As they entered the room, she saw the couple that had come in earlier and smiled at the girl before sitting down near them. "You two are so cute. I'm sure you're glad to have such a beautiful wife," Blake said to the man, smiling. She squeezed Malik's hand and smiled at him. "Do you think we'll ever get married, baby?"

"What are you sorry about?"

Lindsey seemed to freeze in that moment, and her eyes grew soft. "I.." She looked down from Jay's glance, never finished her sentence. She brought back her hand, feeling oddly hormonal. "I think we need to catch up. The other couples are already in therapy..." They must be nice. She didn't finish her oatmeal, as she stood, and tucked her chair back under the table. "I'm gonna go ahead." She sighed, and felt rather.. picky. An unusual feeling, but she started feeling this when she would get extremely nervous. It was almost like she had no filter on her, and anything she tried not to say would come blurbing out.

"Hey guys. How nice to meet all of you." She waved as she entered the room, taking one of the two last chairs to be filled, and crossed her legs. What if her and Jay were the only actual married couple here? As she walked in, she heard the woman with dark hair desperately holding on his arm. "Do you think we'll ever get married, baby?" She snorted to herself, and rubbed her forehead.

As Jay re-joined her, she managed a soft smile, and then jumped as her phone was suddenly ringing. Blushing, she didn't recognize the number, but saw they had left a voicemail. Shrugging, she turned her phone off, and put it in her back jeans pocket, turning her head to the too happy Doctor.

By the time they had gotten close to finishing off their plate of food but both of them had slowed down on the actual eating part a woman got up to speak. "Hello I am Doctor Marla Hunt" The Woman said with a wide grin. "Please feel free to finish your breakfasts but head down to the Serenity Hall so we may begin our group therapy session."

He smiled back at Lori and kissed her back. "It'll be fine Will, we're in this together." He nodded. He could tell she was super nervous but was shielding it well. As they walked out of the banquet hall she spotted the females from before still eyeing him. "Whatever I guess I should take it ass a compliment" Before he could respond she kissed him, quite enthusiastically. "Really?" He asked in annoyance once they were out of earshot of the girls. "Was that entirely necessary?" He gave her a lookbut followed her into the banquet hall and took a seat beside her.

"Ready for this? I mean today might completely change everything" He sighed. Nothing like a little pressure before therapy to really make him feel comfortable with this. He glanced around the room at the other couples all of them looking fairly normal and a lot of them looking pretty happy. "As ready as I'll ever be, I guess." He said.

The woman sitting beside him turned to say something with a smile. "You two are so cute. I'm sure you're glad to have such a beautiful wife." He forced a small smile. "Oh, yeah. She's gorgeous." He said squeezing Lori's hand. "But we're not married." He then turned his attention to the doctor in the front of their circle as she started to begin the session.

"You two are so cute. I'm sure you're glad to have such a beautiful wife, Lori blushed a bit a the dark haired girl. Just as she was feeling her natural bitch mechanism act up, another woman, a pretty blonde approached them. As she was about to respond Will spoke for them, "Oh yeah. She's gorgeous. But we're not married" Lori couldn't figure out why but for some reason that stung a little. She pulled her hand from his and crossed her arms.

Just then the doctor stood up, "Hello couples, I like to begin my sessions by asking the major question: What do you want? Because I know your not just here because you're partner asked or because you feel obligated. You want something. We'll start with you two, she said pointing to a young couple on the right. The man began, "I want her to dress more appropriately,", his wife scoffed and flipped her long black hair, "I want more freedom". As they went down the line other couples dished their reasons out. The reasons ranging from petty things like "I want her to get plastic surgery" to more deep things like "I want him to fall in love with me again"

However as it neared Lori she couldn't think of what to say, she knew what she didn't want. She knew she didn't want to wake up twelve years from now married to a man who only tolerated her. She knew she didn't want to lose Will. She knew she didn't want Mia to resent her later on. She knew....

"Lorelei?" Lori looked up to a room looking at her expectantly. "I don't want to end up like my parents" The doctor shook her head lightly, "I didn't ask what you did want I asked you what you did" Lori crossed her arms "I want you to mind your own business then since you obviously don't want my answer.". The doctor smiled, "If you want your relationship to work you have to work for it. Now I''ll ask you again Ms. Grant, What. Do. You. Want?"

"A baby"

"Hello couples, I like to begin my sessions by asking the major question: What do you want? Because I know you're not just here because your partner asked or because you feel obligated. You want something. We'll start with you two." As the couples went around saying what they wanted, etc., Blake got nervous the closer it came to being her turn to say something. She listened intently, however, to each couple and their issues. It came to be Lorelei's turn, and she didn't seem too keen on telling the group what it was she wanted. Then it happened. She just blurted it out. "A baby." Blake's eyes widened and the girl's boyfriend looked just as surprised. Blake figured that he probably hadn't seen it coming at all. She picked at her nails. Now she was really nervous. This group session was putting people on the edges of their seats it seemed, and it was her turn.

"Blake? What do you want?" the Doctor asked her. Blake bit her lip and looked at Malik, a worried, nervous look obviously painted on her face. "I want us to stop fighting so much. It's always over petty things, but it always happens...." She looked at Malik again, squeezing his hand before looking down at her free hand in her lap that was still picking at its own nails. That wasn't all she wanted, but it was one of the things. She was also thinking that she wanted a baby, but how could she say that now after a Baby Bomb had already been dropped. She couldn't do that to Malik, not yet anyway. She was already feeling weird , and she couldn't stand to put herself through the emotional stress she knew she would go through if she brought this up to Malik. When the time is right, she told herself, taking a deep breath with her eyes closed.

She hoped that the session would be over quickly, but it was set to be 4 hours long. This is going to be an emotional roller coaster made of nightmares, she thought, realizing she was still biting her lip.

After the one girl blurted out "A baby." The stunned look on her boyfriend's face sent a mix of emotions through Jay. Half of him wanted to laugh at how clueless you could be about the person you're in a relationship with while the other half felt pity for the girl because he was in the same boat. Glancing sideways at Lindsey, who was still resting her head on his shoulder, he debated on whether he should speak up and save the girl who he believed had been called "Lorelei" a bit of humiliation having been made the one to go first. Before he could interject, however, the doctor moved on so he kept his mouth shut and just listened.

The next girl revealed that she and her...boyfriend? Husband?...fought a lot. We're the only married couple here... He sighed as the realization sank in, making an assumption that once that fact was known throughout the group it was very possible they would become the people everyone else would come to on relationship advice.

Jay waited patiently until the girl was done talking and then noticed the doctor was looking at him. "What about you guys? Why are you here?" Doctor Maria asked with that much too pleasant smile plastered on her face. Taking in a deep breath, he spoke, offering a small wave of introduction to the other couples first. "Hey guys, I'm Jacob Taylor, and this is my wife Lindsey. I guess why we -- I mean, why I'm here -- is because I..." Suddenly all words were lost on him and he felt extremely stupid. Were they really here because they couldn't agree on whether to have kids or to not have kids? No, there had to be some sort of deeper rooted issue. Come on, Jay. You know what it is. Just say it. He prodded himself to keep speaking.

Clearing his throat and running his fingers through his hair in an attempt to play off his freeze up, he continued, "I guess because... I..... want kids and she doesn't and it's become a real soft spot. I just want us to be able to communicate better and move past this." Once he was done, he mentally yelled at himself CHICKEN. While what he had said was true, it wasn't the real issue he was beginning to realize they had.

We all have those moments in life where everything seems to happen so fast. Malik was having a moment like that from the moment him and Blake sat down in the group session circle. All he did was glance at the couple they sat next to, not paying much attention to what Blake had commented on until she said something about marriage. What brought that on? Malik thought, mentally confused by the comment overall but finding it sweet enough. He smiled one of his natural sweet smiles at her, ignoring the other couples for the moment, and was about to say that he thought they were still too young for marriage, but before he could do so the lady spoke.

"Hello couples, I like to begin my sessions by asking the major question: What do you want?" Taken off guard a moment, Malik stared at the lady unintentionally. Then the other couples began to speak and his eyes shot to them, watching and listening to each ones complaint. Malik, being who he was, couldn't help but laugh at some of the more petty ones about not getting enough loving in bed or wanting to get something done with that ass, it was all very funny, childish even. But it was the deeper more meaningful ones that hit home and left his eyes drifting to Blake with a faint smile adorning his face.

Next thing he knew, someone was saying they wanted a baby. Well, this escalated quickly, Malik thought, struggling to hold in his laughter at the face the guy was giving his girl. He couldn't imagine being that guy and getting bombed like that. His laughter died when the lady called on Blake and his eyes landed on her. "I want us to stop fighting so much. It's always over petty things, but it always happens...." Malik let out a low aw sound before draping an arm over her shoulders then said quietly, trying to fly under the radar of the rest of the people around, "That's why we're here, babe. That's why we're here."

He then relaxed slightly, listening to the next guy put out the whole intro and everything. Malik was honestly impressed by this guy, especially when he started saying what was up in his relationship. "I want kids and she doesn't," "Daaamn..." Malik couldn't help but breathe out the small comment at that. All these people wanting kids and all Malik wants is a good, loving relationship minus the constant arguing and headbutting. But, if it wasn't clear already, this was going to be a lot of work.

"Yes Will, a baby. I mean that's not so outlandish we already have one and you love being a dad." She said defensively. "And I'm mentioning it now." She added crossing her arms over her chest. She had to admit it hurt that Will was giving her such a shocked and dismayed look. The laughing from somewhere in the room wasn't helping either.

"This is good" Dr. Marla said with a smile and a clap, "It's exactly what group sessions are for: openness. Lorelei, Will, we will delve into this more when we get into private sessions tomorrow. For now though, how about we continue with you two " She said motioning to the dark haired couple that approached Lorelei and Will when they first walked in. Lori wasn't too fond of the female who brought up marriage so she was happy to see the doctor focus on them.

Lori turned to Will and whispered, "Well technically I want another baby," She said widening her eyes and raising her index finger. "I didn't say it before because I know you probably won't give me another one until I marry you. Which by the way isn't fair. I love you why isn't that enough?"

The doctor looked up from the couple who was sharing to give Lori a stern look, "Lorelei I would like to remind you that other couples growth is just as important as yours," Dr. Marla said snidely.As the couples finished up Dr.Marla begin standing up again"Well I think that's enough for today." Dr. Marla said standing up. "I expect to see you tonight at the feast but until then enjoy your free time. With that she left the room.



A few minutes later Lori found herself in their Villa. When the group session ended she got out of there as fast as she could. She didn't even wait for Will. She needed time to think and to register the rejection from Will. On her way to the Villa she stopped by a general store in the resort and picked up some condoms which where now strewn on the bed. When she heard the door open she hissed out, "I bought us some condoms because you obviously don't want to have another child with me. Then again you didn't choose to have the first one." She whipped her head to stare at Will, "This. This is why I don't want to get married because one day you will wake up and you won't want me."

As the group session came to a close, Blake could feel the tension, literally feel it, in the room as the couples were leaving. She felt like she was going to be sick from the stress of it all. She couldn't wait to get out of that room. She was antsy, almost itchy, over how the session had gone. She felt like she and Malik hadn't had the worse of it, but the stress from the other couples was starting to get to her.

When they finally got back to their room, Blake was practically pulling her hair out from stress. How am I going to tell him I want a baby.... Especially now? she thought to herself, looking at Malik and smiling, trying to hide how she was really feeling. "I'm not feeling that great, MJ. I think I'm going to take a nap for a bit.... Will you wake me up in an hour?" she asked, wrapping her arms around his neck and giving him a long kiss on the lips. She laid down on the bed and almost instantly fell asleep.

"MJ, I want a baby." she said. "A baby? We're too young! I think we're too young to get married, but you want a baby?!" Malik yelled. Blake began to cry, and she couldn't stand that he thought that they were "too young" to get married or have children. "We aren't too young! I'm 23 years old, and I'm not getting any younger! I don't want to end up like all of the parents who are 60 years old and their kids are just graduating high school. When are you going to be ready?! You're such a child!!" she yelled, storming away from Malik and out of the door, not looking back.

Blake woke with a start and looked at the clock. I've only been asleep for 30 minutes? It felt like a lifetime.... That dream was too vivid. She got up from the bed and walked towards the bathroom; however, as soon as she stood up, she got extremely lightheaded and fell to the floor, passed out.

The atmosphere in the room was thick enough to cut. Malik almost thought that if he tried to cut the air with his finger it would slide off like a cartoon. If only a bell rang when the doctor said "I expect to see you tonight at the feast but until then enjoy your free time.", Malik would have piped out "saved by the," before jumping up and dodging the others on his way out of the place. However, that wasn't the case. It ended and everyone was out of there as fast as they could.


Once back at the room, Malik wasn't sure what to do next. What exactly was there to do here? Before he could ask Blake what she wanted to do, she came up to him. "I'm not feeling that great, MJ. I think I'm going to take a nap for a bit.... Will you wake me up in an hour?" He nodded, though he was a little confused but understood none the less. Sitting down in a chair at a little breakfast nook type table, he leaned his head on his hands. He scanned his eyes over the room before they feel on Blake laying in the bed, now asleep. She sure fell asleep fast, He thought, staring at her a moment.

"I've got sunshine, on a cloudy day," Malik began singing quietly. "When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May," He continued. "Now what could make me feel this way?" Malik sang, a bit louder as he stood up and made his way to the bed, watching Blake to make sure she doesn't stir in her sleep. A soft smile as on his face as her keeled down, crossing his arms over the surface of the bed and bowing his head so he look right at Blake. "My girl," He sang in almost a whisper. It was true that Malik was infatuated with her in this moment. So why did he think they were too young? Too young for anything real? "I'm sorry I'm not ready Blake," He whispered, not even sure if she heard him. "But, maybe, after all this is over, I will be ready. But not yet, not now in the middle of all this," He added in the same hushed voice. A few moments later, he decided to get him some air. As he walked out of his room and down the way he couldn't help but sing. "Well, you can't tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man, no time to talk," Malik winked and smiled at a male staff member that was walking in the opposite direction. If Malik didn't have his power walk on, he would have laughed at the look the man gave him. "Music loud and woman warm," A woman staff member taking a break on a bench gave Malik a look as he walked by. Malik just nodded and kept walking. "I've been kicked around since I was born." He continued singing as he walked.

Eventually the song he began his walk with was over and he was on his way back to the room, humming the whole way. Whenever he went on a walk, he would run into people asking him why he's singing. He would say because instead of being dangerous and using headphones, where you can't hear what's going on around you, he sings. It makes up for the lack of music plus it works your lunges. He eventually reached the door to the room and opened the door, moving it slowly at first so he didn't wake Blake from her nap. Then he noticed Blake wasn't in bed. Panic passed through him quickly before he realized that it would be childish to assume she was kidnapped at a place like this. "Blake? Babe? Where ya' at?" He called, walking into the room, scanning the room with his brow frowned. This panic met him again as he saw Blake on the ground. "Blake!" He yelled, running to her, mumbling constant pet names. Seeing that she must have fainted, he picked her up and laid her in the bed carefully before calling someone to check her out. "It's gonna be alright. It's gonna be alright," He said softly, grabbing a chair and sitting it beside the bed.
