17. After Thoughts

 Javier’s POV


            Unsettled, that’s exactly how I feel right now. I feel like a betrayer and a fucking asshole for taking advantage of Chelsea last night at the fair.  She was hurt and she needed the comfort of a friend but I did more than that, didn’t I? I kissed her and I shouldn’t have.


            It was unprofessional because she’s my patient, wrong because she needed a friend and not a lousy player. Most importantly I betrayed Clay’s trust. He expected me to take care of his little sister not jump into her at the first window of opportunity. Now I would forever feel uneasy with him knowing that I broke our unspoken code of honor to each other.


            I remember the first time that I implied to Clay that I was interested with her..




            “Maybe all she needs is a new guy. Someone better that the last one, who’ll appreciate her and she what amazing girl she is.” I said to him as I was in his kitchen enjoying a cup of coffee while our subject was sleeping in the guest bedroom. “I mean. I would. See how amazing she is, I mean.”


            He stared at me for a moment then sighed. “Look. You know when it comes to almost everything, you’re the guy I trust the most. You’re like my brother. But, Javier, this is my sister we’re talking about.” He said with a hard look in his eyes. “And we both know about your reputation. You never take anyone seriously. So please. Don’t.”


            Well I was really disappointed but I decided to back out because he’s right and Chelsea’s not the kind of girl that you play with.


            “Dude I was just joking.” I said trying to lighten the mood but I knew by the look on his face that he wasn’t fooled.


*Flashback ends*


            It was wrong. I know it is but hell. I’d be a damned hypocrite if I say I’ve never thought of kissing her again.




Chelsea’s POV


            It was wrong. So wrong but oh, it was so perfect. I just can’t stop thinking about it, the kiss and him.


            Maybe it was just the timing or maybe it was because of the romantic ambiance of the fireworks that night.


            Argh!! I don’t know!!


            But there’s nothing wrong right? I mean, I’m single. He’s single. But the thing is I’m scared of the thought of commitment again. Cause when there’s commitment there’s always disappointment then regret then heartbreak. And besides, he’d never like a girl like me…


            Maybe it was just really the timing, some spur of the moment stuff.. Or maybe, just maybe I might already be…. Argh!! I just can’t. I won’t say I’m…
