Life is a rollercoaster

She'd been a fan of his forever, being with him was something she dreamed about (frequently), but when their paths cross, neither of them are prepared for the rollercoaster journey ahead.


12. Chapter Twelve

About an hour later there was a knock at the door.

I froze. Surely Dan wouldn’t? Would he know that Sophie wasn't here?

Knock Knock

Whoever it was knocked again. "I’m just coming" I shouted, it took me a while to stand up and make my way to the door, I opened it cautiously, it definitely wasn’t Dan, which was good. But it was definitely a man.

I opened the door a little wider and squealed a little as I took in the figure before me.


I’d never been so pleased to see anyone in my life.

"Come in, make yourself at home" I said gesturing to the sofa, "let me get you a drink, tea? Coffee? Lemonade? Coke?" I opened the cabinet at the side of me "vodka, gin….jack?" I raised an eyebrow at him and grinned.

He laughed. "Tea is fine, but here let me make it, you should sit down."

"But you don’t know where anything is!" I protested.

"Shush! Sit down, I’ll find it, now what would you like?"

"Tea please" I said.


"Yeah two please?" I said embarrassed.

"Oooh a girl after me own heart" he said, "people always tell me off for having two sugars!"

"Yeah and me" I said. I could hear him clanging around in the kitchen. "Ronan…Ro sorry, are you sure you don't want a hand?"

"Nope I’m fine!" he said. He came through to the living room about fifteen minutes later, with two mugs of tea and a plate of chocolate biscuits.

"Ooh you’ve been raiding our cupboards I see!"

"Yeah thought you needed some cheering up" he smiled.

"Aw thank you". He sat next to me on the sofa.

It took my breath away every time I looked at him. He always looked so stunning, he was absolutely beautiful.

I suddenly wished I had put on some better clothes that morning, I was wearing an old faded t-shirt and denim skirt because it hurt like hell to put trousers on at the moment. He caught me looking at him and stared at me, I gazed into his eyes, there was something in the air, like the night in the bar that we had shared. He moved a little closer, or so it seemed, my breath caught somewhere in my throat.



Damnit! I picked it up from the coffee table where Sophie had left it so I could answer it easily. "Hello?"

"Hey only me" said Sophie " I’ve just seen Dan"


"I said he could come around, so you could sort things out"

"Oh" I said

"Is that ok? I thought it best that you get it over and done with"

"Er yeah….Ronan’s here"

"He is?" she squealed delightedly at me, I laughed "turns out you were right"

"Ha ha, but what are we going to do about Dan?"

"Might as well do this now" I said, "might help to have him here" I said referring to Ronan.

"Ok if you’re sure? I’ll get Dave to come round as well"

"Ok, I’d better go, I think my visitors getting bored!" I said, I looked at Ronan who had his head resting on the back of the settee, and looked like he was about to fall asleep.

"Oh I’m sure you’ll think of something to keep him entertained" she said laughing now,


"Right I’ve gotta get back to work"

"Ok see you later"

"Yeah bye Vic"


I put the phone still laughing at Sophie’s comment. Ronan looked at me quizzically, "What are you laughing at missy?"

"I can’t tell you that!"

"I’ll tickle you until you tell me!"

I threw him a look, that said ‘you wouldn’t dare’. He stood up and stood over me, before I knew what had happened I was flat on my back on the sofa with Ronan Keating tickling me to death.

"Ah Ro stop!!" I gasped. "Not until you tell me"

"I can’t" I said I was laughing hysterically, I must have been the most ticklish person in the world.

"Ow sh*te!" I said suddenly silently cursing.


"My leg, stupid f******g stitches!"

"Aw you poor thing" he picked me up suddenly and sat me on his lap. "Want me to kiss them better?" glancing at me suggestively.

"I’m not sure that’s a good idea" I answered a little nervously, thinking about how high up my thigh they were. "Can I see them?"

"Not sure that’s a good idea either" I smiled.

"Aw please???" he looked at me.

"Oh alright then". I pulled the side of my skirt up gently trying not to expose too much flesh or show Ronan anything he didn’t really want to see.

"Aw honey" he said sympathetically. They looked bad, as they’d not really started to heal over yet. He put his hand out and gently touched the very bottom of the stitches I swallowed hard when he put his hand on my leg, he awoke some kind of desire in me that I’d never felt before. He started tracing the scar slowly with this finger, I took his hand gently away, I couldn’t let him carry on or there’d be no going back. He looked at me, I think he understood.

"Ro, how come...?" I started but found myself unable to finish the sentence, I didn’t want it to come out the wrong way.

"I’m here?" he said, I nodded. "My day off, I did promise!" "I have to fly back to Dublin tonight though but I really wanted to see you before I went home"

"You did?"

"Yes I did"

"Vic I think I…." I held my breath without realising. "I really like you, I…"

I must’ve looked shocked, scared or both. "Are you ok? You’ve gone pale all of a sudden"

"I’m fine" I managed to whisper. "You were saying?"

I looked at him, he stared deep into my eyes, before I knew what was happening his lips were on mine, he kissed me gently, and then pulled away.

"I really really really like you" he said finally.

"Really?" I teased.


I felt like I had butterflies in my stomach, I knew I felt nothing but desire after the feeling of his lips on mine, but there was something else. It felt like I was falling in love with this man. I looked at him out of the corner of my eye.

"Ro I really like you too" I whispered.

We stared at each other for a few seconds, then my arms were around his neck, and he was kissing me much more passionately this time, running his fingers through my hair. He left out a barely audible groan of pleasure. I pulled away slowly "Ro?" he looked at me with desire in his eyes.

" I…"

"Sophie bumped into Dan in town earlier"

Ronan’s eyes darkened as I said his name.

"He’s coming around later"

He looked angry for a second.

"We’ve got to finish it properly" I said.

His expression changed into one of sympathy and he pulled me closer to him. "I won’t let him hurt you…ever" he said. I relaxed into his embrace and lay back on the sofa with my head on his chest, it felt so right. I could’ve happily stayed that way forever....
