6. That Night

Those words, those two words that are meant to heal, broke me more than anything else had in almost three years. In those two words, I heard everything I needed to fall apart.

All I did was nod. We sat there, just the same, until Harry got up and announced it was time to leave. Harry took a cab, and I went home with Alejandro.

 

***********

 

I laid, half awake, on Alejandro's couch. He was on the floor in front of me, his long legs stretched out. We were watching an old Christmas movie.

"Hallie?" He said, breaking the comfortable silence.

"Hmm?" I answered, still half asleep.

"How do you know Harry?" He asked.

"We dated," I said, groggily. "In high school. But he left me for fame." I didn't realize that Alejandro had crawled next to me until he put his arms around me.

"I'm sorry," He said. And I broke all over again. I cried into his chest as he rubbed my back in circles. When I pulled away, I noticed I'd gotten makeup on his shirt. It was probably streaked down my face, too.

I tried to avoid his eyes, but there was more I had to say just so I could hear myself admit it. "I don't know what love is, but I know what I felt for him. And think that, might just be love." 

The TV flashed behind us, it showed people who knew what they were doing. They had their life, and their feelings, sorted out. You could see the confidence in their eyes.

"Do you mind if I use your shower?" I asked him.

"Of course not," He said while getting up. "I'll get some clothes for you to change into."

 

**********

 

I stepped out of his shower and wrapped a towel around my body. He'd left me one of his t-shirts and a pair of grey sweatpants. They were much too big for me, but way more comfortable than my dinner clothes. I wrapped my hair into a loose bun and went to his living room.

"Hey Hal." Alejandro said when I walked in. He was in a t-shirt and sweats too, and he'd reclined the couch as he flipped through channels. I sat down next to him and he got a goofy smile on his face.

"What?" I asked.

"You just look so cute in my clothes." he answered and put his arm around my shoulders. Suddenly, I realized how tired I was. I'd had a long day and my eyes were heavy. I rested my head on his chest and fell into a dreamworld, where all my problems melted away for just a few hours.
