. Calista P.O.V

    Sitting on a bench in the park I eyed the moon, Alex was a half hour late. Frowning I looked at my clothes. I thought tonight was going to be fun; but he stood me up. The smell of spring flowers coated the air, fireflies were just starting to come out as the colors danced around the green forest. Sighing I looked up to see Alex running down the sidewalk holding a dozen roses, wearing a white button down shirt and black pants. He looked good in everything I huffed. Crossing my arms I stood up and looked him in the eyes not saying a word as he came to a stop in front of me.

    “ I am so so so sorry I am late. I ran into a small problem but that is no excuse.”  He apologized his eyes portraying guilt, he wasn’t telling me something, I’m so tired of these secrets he is keeping. Pushing that thought to the back of my mind I attempted to push down the part of me that wanted to tear his eyes out.

    “Its okay, I know you wouldn’t be late endless it was something important. I just, I know you're not telling me something.” Watching as his face pale out and his stance stiffen I knew I was right.  

    “I have no secrets Calista.” He lied. Looking him in the eyes I backed up a few steps.

    “You're lying to me Alex, I know you are.”

    “Please don’t back away from me.” Pain crossed his face as I continued to back up slowly.

    “Then tell me what you're keeping from me. Does it involve me?”

    “Yes it does.” Finally something truthful.

    “Then I deserve to know.”

    “I know you do.”

    “Then tell me!” I screeched still moving away. “Tell me the truth.” I said tears now running down my face. Sighing he ran up to me, putting his hand on the side of my face I flinched.

    “If I do, you will leave me.” He said his voice soft. The wind was gently blowing my hair back as the tears continued to fall. Shaking my head I looked to the ground.

    “You wouldn’t let me leave even if I wanted to, you kidnapped me remember.” I scowled feeling him flinch, I felt bad knowing I hurt him, but it was the truth. I had wanted to leave once, and once only and that was when he put guards at the house and locked me in my room. That was after a day or so in that house, we always fought we never got along and I wanted to leave.  After that though I never wanted to leave again, he did everything he could to make me happy, to make sure I felt safe and at home and after that I had grown to like him, and I thought he liked me too.

    “If I tell you, you would never trust me again.”

    “How do you know that I trust you now?”  He fell silent looking to the ground.

    “Bring me home.” I demanded in a small voice feeling a sob rip threw my chest. “Please.” Nodding we walked back to the car, handing me the roses I sat in the passenger seat, resting my head against the window I silently cried all the way home.  


Alexander’s P.O.V.


    Quietly opening the door to her room I saw that she was asleep, my heart broke seeing her like this. Her beautiful face was pale from crying, makeup smeared under her eyes, hands clutching the pillow. Closing the door quietly I walked to my study. Why didn’t I just tell her? Why didn’t I man up and just tell her about everything. About what she is, what I am. Plopping myself into the chair pulling out the small velvet box I looked at the ring inside. Why didn’t I just ask her to marry me?
