46. Protective Lover
“(I looked deeply in his eyes, as one of his hands slid up and down on my back softly.) I didn’t want to tell you what really was bothering me at lunch because I didn’t want to ruin our first outing together.”
He looked at me in a calm expression, and then he spoke:
“You can tell me now, love. What’s bothering your pure mind?”
Those sweet words spoken out from his deep voice, made me more relaxed to the whole situation.
“Well, (I sighed) you know my close friend at the hospital, Angela? (He nodded for me to go on, while I fixed my sit on his lap.) She was being verbally harassed from Nick, who decided to show up to look for me. (Harry’s eyes widened, and his jaw began to clench.) I slapped him and shooed him away, but I really am worried that this visit will be repeated…”
Harry stayed still, but I felt his heart beats increasing, and that’s why I didn’t want to tell him; he’s angry.
“I want you to quit your job as soon as possible.”
What? Quit my job?! Ok, no I’m sorry Harry but that won’t happen.
“Why should I? Har-…”
He cut me off and spoke:
“Because I want you to.”
That’s it; I knew this will make us go crazy on each other!
“(I tried to maintain my calmness as much as possible.) May I please finish what I wanted to say?”
He groaned and hardly nodded, I knew he’s stubborn to the extreme when it comes to these situations.
“Harry, (I tilted his chin so he could look at me.) Look at me. (He raised his face and his worrying/angry eyes met mine.) Running away from one hospital, doesn’t mean that he won’t find me in another one, or even meeting me randomly if I was out somewhere. Something I learned in life is to never run away from any problems I may face; it will only make it harder to deal with if so. (I saw his facial expressions get calm.) He won’t cause any harm I promise you, I know Nick and that’s the extreme of what he could do. (He sighed.)”
He then replied:
“I swear if he lays a finger on you I will k-…”
I interrupted him with smashing my lips with his passionately; we kissed deeply as he nibbled on my lower lip in his low kisses.
“(I dropped the amazing make out, and caught my breath as I spoke.) Baby you are a worldwide artist in an incredibly known band right? (He nodded and I proceeded.) Your fans depend on you to give them the joy and happiness, and grace them with your talent; because you are good at what you do. It’s the same deal with me and my job; I have patients depending on my care and expertise to help them recover. Would you agree if I demanded you to quit your job? (He shook his head, and I felt he began to understand my point.) Then how will I babe? I trust you and you trust me, and I promise you there will be no more headaches from Nick, deal?”
He kissed my forehead and he breathed:
I smiled at his quick understanding; this was one of his qualities which I adored to the extreme.
“(I blushed and poked the tip of his nose.) Now, tell me. What does my boyfriend want for his birthday?”
He giggled and replied as his hands placed themselves on my waist:
“I already have what I want, you.”
I chuckled and fake pouted, while he laughed lightly.
“Fine, don’t tell me I’ll have to surprise you I guess.”
I teased him in my spoken tone, while he shook his head and giggled with me.
…. At Night ….
called my aunt and told her that I have Harry’s birthday to attend, she told me not to worry about the gift or the outfit; since she promised me that we would go together to pick the gift, and she could arrange me one of her incredible designs for the occasion. I pushed myself out of the excitement, and dove in a resting sleep; until I heard a knock on the door!
“Miss Lane?” Rosa?
What might she want at this time of night!? Notes
