3. Here Goes Nothing

*Abby’s Point of View*

I pace around nervously in front of my dresser for what seems like hours until I decide on a white summer dress with a thin brown leather belt along with strappy gold wedges and a white blazer.

Oh why am I working myself into a frenzy about this? I’m having coffee with a heartbreaking jerk. Why do I feel the need to impress him? I was only going out with him so he would leave me alone what’s the point of impressing him? And why do I keep feeling butterflies in my stomach? I hadn’t felt this way since me and Harry’s first date… Oh no do I still have feelings for him? That’s impossible. I’m over that scum bag right? Oh who was I kidding? Whenever I look at him I still feel the butterflies and it feels like we’re the only two people in the world. That could just be old feelings right? It might not really be there I mean it’s so obvious that he’s over me I mean he wouldn’t have cheated if he actually loved me.

 I start to bite my nails. Oh my goodness I haven’t done that in years I thought I finally got rid of that stupid habit. Well I guessed wrong; oh well. I finish my makeup just as it’s time to go.

I grabbed the keys to my blue Dodge Charger and left. I made it to Starbucks five minutes early. I grab a table in the corner and wait for Harry. I see Harry walk in two minutes later. He starts to make his way over. He looks just as handsome as the day I met him… Oh for the love of Pete SNAP OUT OF IT ALREADY! I mentally shake myself and remind myself of what he did to me and try to convince myself the only reason that I’m here is because he promised to stay away from me.

*Harry’s Point of View*

Abby looked beautiful. I can’t take my eyes off of her I will never understand what I saw in Summer compared to Abby. I had been ready to go down on one knee and ask Abby to be mine forever and then I got together with Summer what is wrong with me? Why did I just throw this all away? Ugh I was so dumb back then.

“Hey,” I said as casually as I could when in reality I felt like my heart was going to beat right out of my chest.

“Hey, take a seat we have a lot to discuss.”

I pulled out the chair and began to stare at her. We stayed like that for a few moments just staring at each other. I can see the determination in Abby’s eyes. She really wants to get rid of me I can feel it and I can see it. There’s another thing that hasn’t changed about Abby; I can still read her like an open book all of her emotions showed in her eyes. Her eyes are like chameleons they turn a bright robin’s egg blue when she’s happy and a darker muddy blue when she’s angry or sad.

        Abby finally broke the silence.

“Start talking already, I don’t have all night.”

Her words cut like knives; I remember a time when Abby used to have all the time in the world and when we were together it felt like time stopped. We could stare at each other for hours just captivating each other’s features. We joked and laughed for hours on end back then but not anymore.

“Where would you like me to begin?”

“Where you left off last time. I never let you finish your explanation,” replied Abby curtly.

“Alright. Well as you know Summer and I were seeing each other for six months before you caught on.”

Abby nodded her head with an obvious look of distain.

         “Before you carry on may I ask you a simple yes or no question?”

        I nodded my head nervously, terrified of what her question might be.

        “Did you mean it when you said ‘I love you’?”

        My heart stopped for a minute did I really make her doubt that I loved her?

        “Yes, I really did mean it when I said I love you.”

        “Why did you stop loving me? What did I do to deserve losing your love?” asked Abby her eyes brimming with tears.

 “I never stopped loving you. If I stopped then we wouldn’t be here right now. If I stopped then I never would have gone to your apartment that night begging for you forgiveness.” I choked back the tears that were forming in my eyes.

        Abby burst into tears at that exact moment. Her body was shaking so uncontrollably I couldn’t resist going over to the other side of table and engulfing her into my arms. She resisted at first but then slowly melted into my arms. We stayed that way for a long time; when Abby finally got a hold on her emotions she realized it was my arms around her and shoved me away.

        “I’m sorry you had to see that.” Abby’s voice went back to the hard cold tone she was using before.

        “Abby it’s ok it was my fault you’re like this now if I had never done that to you we would still be together and we would probably be married and have children.”  Had I just blurt all that out?  The look on Abby’s face told me yes I had indeed just said that out loud.

        “Umm… well…”

        “Can we just forget what happened just now?”

        “Actually I would like to talk about that. What did you mean but we would probably be married?”

        “Ah well I um was planning on proposing to you before I got caught up with Summer” I mumbled into my lap.

        “You were?”

        “Yah, See Abby I really did mean it when I said I love you.”

        “What didn’t you propose?”

        “I was planning to propose to you the day me and Summer went to that movie. I wanted Summer to help me plan the perfect scene and to help me make it perfect. But then instead she kissed me and proposing didn’t seem like such a hot idea.”

        Abby buried her face in her hands and mumbled something incoherent to me.

        “I’m sorry but I can’t hear what you’re saying Abby.”

        “I was saying why didn’t it seem like ‘such a hot idea’?”

        “It wasn’t such a hot idea anymore because I didn’t know how to feel about you anymore I still thought I loved you but I didn’t know so I put the idea away for awhile.”

        “So you admit you didn’t feel like you loved me anymore.”

        “No! Not at all, I knew I still loved you but I thought that I might have feelings for Summer and I didn’t want you to marry someone who didn’t know if they loved you one hundred percent. You only deserve the best and I wanted to give it to you event if I didn’t deserve you or your love.”
