Chapter Three: Her Diamonds

"Kris, call the hospital! Tell them we're on our way with her!" I yelled out. Kelsey had either forgotten to take her insulin or used too much of it. She needed some sugar now.

"Jordan, dig in her purse for something with sugar!" I said grabbing her pop off the table. After a few difficult tries I was finally able to get her to swallow some of it. Jordan came running over with a package of twizzlers he had found. Kelsey was finally coming around.

"You guys ready? I just settled the bill, lets get going." Kris said looking a little scared. It wasn't the first time he's seen her go into an insulin shock. The first time was so hard for him.

"Yeah lets go" I said grabbing our purses from the table while Kris and Jordan helped Kelsey get up.

"Here, lets get in the Escalade so we can fit everyone in." Jordan said unlocking it with his beeper.

Kelsey and I got into the back of the suv while Kris and Jordan were up front.

Jordan started up the car, turning up the radio so that it would help Kelsey stay awake.

"Jordy, do you really need to play this awful techno?" Kels mumbled beneath her breath.

"Yes, I definitely do." he said giving Kris a quick high five for their annoying music.

"Don't worry Kels, we'll be at the doctor's soon."

"Thanks sis. I'm sorry I ruined tonight."

"Don't you dare be sorry. We can always go out another night." I smiled giving her a hug.

"Yeah it's not like Tanger needs that cheesecake." Jord chirped in.

"Whatever Staalsy." Kris said rolling his eyes.

"You're always sexy to me, Kris!"

"I love you babe." Kris said leaning back to give Kelsey a kiss.

"Looks like Kels is back!" I yelled out. Next thing you know Kris is crawling in the back with Kelsey and I.

"No sex in my car you two!" Jordan said laughing. I climbed my way up front to sit with Jord.

"Fine!" they yelled from the back.

"Alright, we're here!" Jordan announced pulling into the empty parking lot. We all got out of the car and made our way inside of the hospital. Jordan and I took a seat while Kris and Kelsey went to the receptionist. I knew she would be alright, but I wanted them to make sure her levels were okay. Kelsey has had diabetes for the past ten years, ever since she was eleven. I knew the drill. Luckily, Kelsey was able to see one of the doctors right away. Kris has always helped her with it as well, so he went back to the room with her. Jordan and I waited patiently for those two to come back out. We ended up watching The Big Bang Theory that was playing in the waiting room. We were getting pretty tired just waiting, I ended up putting my head on Jordan's shoulders and almost falling asleep.

"Mar, they're back." Jordan said shaking my shoulder as I saw Kelsey and Kris coming towards us hand in hand.

I jumped up to give her a hug. "So what did they say?!"

"They said my levels were a little low, so they gave me some sugar water to drink. And we're changing the medicine I'm on. Hopefully this will work better."

"We're really glad you're okay" Jordan said getting up to give her a hug as well.

We walked back outside to Jordan's car and on our way to get Kris' car back at Cheesecake Factory.

"Did you show Kris your Halloween costume?"

"What Halloween costume?" Kris said looking confused.

"For the team party, babe."

"OH right! I want to see it!" Kris said with a smirk on his face.

"I'll show you mine, only if you show me yours!"


"Haha poor Tanger!" Jordan said laughing.

"Hey, I wouldn't be laughing. You don't know what I'm going as!" I said smiling.

"Jokes on you, Staalsy!" Kris yelled out.

Before we knew it we were back at Cheesecake Factory.

"Goodnight you twooooooooo!" Jordan and I yelled with the windows down. Kris and Kelsey honked goodbye at us as they were pulling out of the parking spot.

"Wild day, huh babe?" I said grabbing Jordan's hand.

"You got that right." he said giving my hand a kiss.

"Whats going on tomorrow?"

"Well, I was thinking of staying home and working out. I'll just check in with the trainers in the afternoon. I want you to go too." he said with a smile on his face.


"Yeah of course! They can explain everything better to you than I can."

"Maybe I'll even work out with you in the morning!" I said laughing.

"Good, I can use a beautiful work out partner! Kennedy is gross."

"Oh I can imagine. That boy always has some weird stories."

"You're telling me! You don't see him every day!" Jordan said laughing.

We were soon back at our place.

"Home sweet home!" Jordan got out the keys and quickly unlocked the door for us.

"Lets get Colby up here and then we can head to bed." Jordan said giving me a kiss. We walked downstairs to get him, only to find him very excited to see us.

"Come on Colb!" Jordan said unlocking his cage. As soon as Jordan unlocked the cage, Colby went running up the stairs.

"Kitchen or our room?"

"I'm going to say he'll be in the kitchen, with his bowl in his mouth."

"Ehh, I'm going to say he'll be laying in our bed."

"We'll just have to see!"

We walked up the stairs to the main floor of the house. No Colby.

"Looks like I'm the winner!" I yelled out.

"COLBYYYYY!" Jordan screamed for him as he came running down the stairs.

"Cheater." I said picking up Colby. "Daddy always has to win doesn't he?"

"Yes, I do!" Jordan said smiling and taking my hand. "Bed time!"

The three of us made it upstairs where we got ready for bed. I got changed into some pajamas while Jordan put his lounge pants on. We were just about comfortable and put SportsCenter on to relax. Of course Colby had to crawl in between us.

"Colby get down, go in your bed." Jordan said as he picked him up and onto the floor. Colby made his way to his bed that was right beside ours.

"Jord, come back to bed." I said as a big yawn came out.

"I'm coming babe." he said climbing back in to bed. He put his arm around my waist and pulled me in closer to him. I wrapped by leg around his legs as we began kissing.

"Marlee, I love you."

"I love you too, Jord." as I started to kiss him again.
