Loving With A Heavy Heart Chapter 135
134 The End Of The World 1
Abby woke one morning feeling particularly refreshed. Almost all of her worries had gone. Everything at work was going well. She finally felt completely comfortable and familiar with her role there. Things with Jacob were better than ever. It was similar to how things were in the beginning of their relationship. He was being really attentive to her and took the initiative to call her and see her often, but it was even better than the beginning because now both of them respected the other person more and took care to be more open and honest than they were in the beginning.
Abby hummer a happy tune to herself as she got dressed for work. Once she was ready she went downstairs where her mother and father were already sitting at the table and enjoying a nice breakfast together.
"Good morning." Abby greeted them both with a smile and a kiss on their cheeks. "I'll be off to work now."
"Won't you have something to eat before you go?" Her mother asked.
"Not today. I'll see you both later."
"Okay. Have a good day." Her father replied.
Abby skipped down the front steps but came to a full stop as she reached the driveway. Jacob was there, sitting in his car with a smile and a cup of coffee waiting for her.
"What are you doing here?" She asked as she got into the passenger side.
"I thought it was obvious. I came to pick you up."
"What if my parents had seen you?" She hissed, as if they may still somehow overhear them.
"Then I would have greeted them."
Abby looked at him with a disbelieving expression.
"What? We've been going out for some time now. It's not that unusual for me to meet them is it?"

"It's absolutely bizarre. I don't want them to know about my dating life just yet."
"You know we're both adults now, right? It's just your parents, it wouldn't be the end of the world." Jacob teased, but he let the conversation drop anyway.
"Oh, that's right!" Abby said, suddenly feeling reanimated as she heard an ad play over the radio. "Tonight, there's going to be a night market set up. Do you want to go together?"
"Great. Make sure to have a light lunch then. We'll stock up on food later." She said excitedly.
"Okay, okay." Jacob agreed with a chuckle as they pulled to a stop in front of the university Abby was currently working at. She gathered her things and leaned over to press a quick kiss to Jacob's cheek.
"Thank you for the ride. I'll see you later." She said as she got down from the car.
"Alright. Have a good day."
With the excitement of a date paired with the excitement of trying new foods Abby's day went by in the blink of an eye. Next thing she knew she was getting back into Jacob's car.
"How was your day?" He asked.
"Good. A little boring but not bad. What about you?"
"More or less the same."
They drove to the park where the event was being held. Dozens of temporary food stalls were set up to make a maze of restaurants with all sorts of both local and international foods.
"Where should we start?" Abby asked with wide eyes, looking slightly like a child on Christmas morning.
"You really like food don't you." Jacob teased. "You always seem to prefer when our dates involve dinner."
"How can you not?" Abby enthused. "Just smell the aroma. Isn't it wonderful?"
"I forgot, your parent's own a restaurant, don't they?"
"That's right. They would bring me to places like this all the time when I was younger. They'd come to try the food and get new ideas for menu items."
Jacob frowned as he looked out at the crowd. It didn't seem like an ideal place to bring a child.
"Come on, let's go." Abby insisted, diving into the crowd.
They lined up at a few places to get a nice variety of foods to try before heading over to a shady spot in the grass to sit down and enjoy them all, which Abby needed no encouragement to do. While she carefully and thoroughly enjoyed each new food she tried Jacob sat back and enjoyed all of her little reactions. The way her eyes lit up whit each new thing she tried. The way she smiled as she encouraged him to try a bite too. Everything was going wonderfully until
"Abby?" A voice called out.
Both Abby and Jacob looked up to see a slightly older looking couple approach them. They appeared to be only slightly older than Abby and Jacob themselves.
'Perhaps they are her coworkers.' Jacob wondered to himself.
But then Abby called out, "Mother, fatherwhat are you doing here?"
