The Tycoon's Vacation

Baby for the Billionaire #2 - The Tycoon's Vacation



Prologue

"You don't know what you're missing out on Drew. I've never been so happy in my entire life. I love you and Ryan like brothers, you know that, but there's something completely satisfying about having a wife and children. It fills a void you don't even know is there until you finally are with your true love," Derek said as the two men sat by the pool, having a drink.

"You know, I think Jasmine is about the most perfect person in this universe but marriage just isn't for me. I'm a confirmed bachelor. Why would I want to settle down with just one lady, when I can have a new one on my arm every single night?" Drew said with a wicked smile. He said the words but even he didn't believe himself anymore. He'd watched his newly married cousin with his wife and felt a tugging for something more in his life. He wouldn't admit that out loud, though. He had a great life and he refused to even think about changing it.

"Yeah, well you know I felt the same way until Jasmine came back into my life and now I just think of all the wasted years we could've been together," Derek said with pain in his voice. His cousin had married his childhood sweetheart but circumstances had kept them apart for ten years and Drew knew it pained Derek whenever he thought about all the years lost.

"I think I'm so restless because I need a vacation. I've been working non-stop for years now and I think I'm going to pick one of my resorts and just go soak up some sun and lounge around. I'm sure I can find a few pretty ladies to enjoy the time with me," he said. He was well known as a playboy. The women he got involved with knew the score and were looking for nothing more than a night with him, so there were no hurt feelings between the couples in the morning.

That had always been enough for him, so he figured the restlessness really was just the fact he was working too hard. The old saying seemed to be quite fitting, all work and no play.

"What are you boys up to out here?" Jasmine asked, as she walked out, with her beautiful baby girl. Drew immediately held out his arms to take her. She was the most adorable thing in the world and he could imagine himself with a few someday. He had to shake the thought off, since he couldn't have the babies without having a wife. He'd been raised far better than that.

"Oh, you know Drew, he's talking about all the pretty ladies," Derek said as he grabbed his wife around the waist and settled her onto his lap. She giggled before bending down to kiss him, making Drew a bit uncomfortable. He cleared his throat, just to remind them he was still there. 

He'd never been so head over heels for a girl he forgot everyone else in the room. He was starting to wonder what that would be like.

"Sorry Drew," Jasmine said a bit sheepishly, as a pretty blush stole over her features.

"Want to babysit?" Derek said. He wasn't in the least bit sorry. Before Drew had a chance to say anything, Derek rose from the chair, with Jasmine still in his arms and carried her off through the house. He could hear her weak protests as they got further away.

Britney was looking up at him with her big blue eyes, which he couldn't resist. He blew some raspberries on her tummy, which made her giggle and pat his face.

"I know your parents are a bit nutty but you have to love them, anyway," he said to the baby. He didn't feel foolish at all talking to her, even though she had no idea what he was saying. He found himself alone for a very long time before the happy couple came back down to join him.

He raised his brows at his cousin, who just shrugged as if to say, he couldn't help himself. Jasmine apologized for her husband's behavior and took Britney back, so she could get her ready for bed. He reluctantly handed her over.

"I'm going to take off now, since my presence here is obviously not needed," Drew said with a huge smile.

"Hey, you know you're always wanted here," Derek told him, truly meaning it.

"I know. That's why I keep coming back. I'm going to take everyone's advice though and go on a vacation. I'm sure once I get away for some fun, I'll feel much better and can get back to normal," he said.

"Don't stay away too long, you know how quickly Britney is growing up," Derek said, as he walked him to the door.

"I can't believe how quickly she's growing. I'll be back in a week or so. I'm thinking it's time to start slowing down. I'm realizing traveling isn't holding the same appeal it used to and whenever I'm away I'm anxious to get back. I think it's your wife's cooking. I swear I've put on twenty pounds," he said, while rubbing his incredibly flat stomach.

"I understand. I'm going to have to go to the tailor to let all my pants out," Derek agreed, while rubbing his own impressive stomach. Both men looked more like they should be on the cover of magazines, than sitting behind a desk. They shook hands and Drew took off.
