53. Always and Forever (pt 2)


“Hello, Christian.” She greeted him not too warmly. 

“Hello.” Christian said smoothly, “I’ll be by the door Madison.” He told me walking briskly away, disappearing in the crowds of dancing couples. I had a feeling he already knew what Lillian was going to say to me.

“Where do you think you’re going? Maddie are you really leaving with him?” Lillian asked me in disbelief. 

I sighed, smiling slightly, Lillian was being overprotective which I appreciated. It hurt even more that I couldn’t tell her the truth if anyone deserved to know the truth she did but I doubted she could handle it if I exposed her to the world of the supernatural. 

“Lilly, I’m going to leave with Christian and talk to him. Look I know you're being protective as only a true best friend would be and I love you for that, I really do. But we both need to talk and figure things out. Whether it be the closure we both never got or something else, all I know is that I can’t take the pain of not knowing anymore. Promise to call you later on tonight and I’ll give you the full scoop okay?” I gave Lillian my best puppy dog eyes, she rolled her eyes and sighed in resignation. I hugged her tightly.

“Fine, but I swear Madison if he hurts you one more time then you need to let it be over completely. You call me later on tonight or else I’m going to call your mother. And you better not come to my house covered in bruises or else this time I will call the cops whether or not he is to blame.” She threatened.

"I got it. Lilly, what was it that Christian told you before that you never told me?" It was a random question that I honestly had no clue why it popped out of my mouth, but it seemed imperative that I knew the answer. 

"Madison you told me-" Lillian started to protest.

"Lilly please..." I begged.

Lilly sighed, clearly not seeing the importance but caved in, "He said that one day the whole world would know that he was in love with you. That you were his and that he was yours. That even if you both were to go separate ways nothing in this world would come between your love. That's why I told him that it wouldn't matter if he proved it to me or the whole world if he loved you, that the only person he would have to prove it to would be you. But honestly Madison what difference does it matter? You both tried, it didn't work out. This is the end for you guys." She said, exasperated. 

"It matters because he's right. This isn't the end for us Lilly, it's only the beginning, I got to go. Thanks, love you!"

I let her go and turned fast on my heel before she could threaten me any more. My heart pounded in my chest as I approached Christian by the entrance door, he propped it open for me. We walked out into the parking lot, the night wind blew against my skin causing me to shiver. Christian, without a word, placed his tux jacket over my shoulders, I smiled my appreciation and followed him to a unrecognizable black Lamborghini. He opened the passenger seat for me, I slid into the car. New car scent floated through my nose as I admired the interior, he slid in next to me. 

“Nice rental.” I said politely. 

“Oh no, it's mine. It was a gift from Emilia, her way of apologizing.” Christian told me.

“That was nice of her, she looked lovely tonight. How will they get home though?” I asked concerned. 

“When she brought this for me she decided she wanted one as well. They drove here in her car." 

I stared at the scenery blurring past me until I noticed a familiar driveway and cottage, we were at Christian's cottage. I smiled, it was almost as if I was home again even though Lucas had brought all my belongings back to my house, I felt as if I never left. Christian parked and got out, opening my door for me. I stepped out, butterflies floated in my stomach, not sure why I felt nervous but I did. 

“I have something to show you but can you keep your eyes closed?” He asked me. 

I nodded my head. Christian surprised me by lifting me in his arms as he used to do without any effort or strain. “Best if I carry you.” He explained but I didn’t care, I rested my head against his chest, intoxicated by his scent. 

I closed my eyes enjoying being in his arms. 

After a minute, he whispered in my ear, “Open your eyes.” He placed me lightly on my feet. 

I opened my eyes to a picturesque scene in the back yard. It was almost as if we never left prom, there was a lighted archway covered in the orange exotic flowers that were inside of the cave. Candles were placed along the grass around a blanket that was placed next to the archway. A bottle of sparkling cider and chocolate covered strawberries were placed on a tiny glass plate while classical music played lightly from Christian's stereo speakers that instantly set the mood. It was the melody that Christian would had once hummed me to sleep.

“What?-Why?” I struggled for words. 

“I miss you, and I hope you miss me. I wanted to recreate our good moments together. Going to the cave, our first date. Do you like it?” He asked quietly.

“I love it. I’ve missed you too. But why now? After months…why now?” I asked him turning to face him directly. I didn’t want to ruin the moment but I had to know.

“Because I’m a fool. I never should’ve let you walk away in the first place that night. I should’ve told you that I've never cared about Katherine in any way as I care for you. I should’ve held you in my arms and never have let you go. But I won’t lie it was good for you to be around your friends and live in your normal life without all of my problems. You have so much to learn and experience in life. But why now? Because I’m selfish, I need you in my life. I lied to you that night we first met in the library when I said I was never in love, because the first moment I looked into your eyes I was in love with you. I am so sorry for everything you had to go through in these past months, I don’t even have the words. I know it’s hard to accept the fact I’m different but we can make it work. Maybe I will never fit in your world and you won’t fit into mine but we can have our own world Madison. I know there is a dark side to me and I don't like that person but if I have to be that person to protect you then I can't apologize for that. I can't say that I didn't enjoy killing Katherine because I'd be lying. There is a part of me that did enjoy it, that's my beast and I can't stop that. I wish to God that I could but I can't. But being with you makes me happier than anything on this planet. Being with you gives me hope, one day that beast will disappear, I can't promise that it will. But I can promise you this-until the end of time I will love you, and until my last day on this Earth I will be by your side. If you'll have me, even if we could be friends again, I just want you in my life in any shape or form.”

“No.” I whispered.
