25. Deep thoughts
I am just going to pretend that nothing of the stuff with TeamCrafted happened. I'm to lazy to rewrite the entire story... Hope you guys are alright with it.
I’ve been lying on the bed on my phone for a bit, just trying to find out if the coffee shop has hot a website. I was going to call them and ask if the guy was okay. I really can’t believe that Mitch just left, that’s kind of a douche move.
This really isn’t what I expected from this day. I were really excited earlier, but now I just want to lay here.
Around 10 minutes pass, before there is a knock on the door. I give the person permission to come in and Jason pokes his head into the room.
“Hey Karoline, what are you doing?” he asks with a smile on his face.
“Nothing much, just thinking a bit about things,” I answer. He takes a few steps closer and I pad the bed, gesturing for him to come sit down. He does, a bit closer than I expected, but its fine. We sit there for a bit just looking around.
“Don’t think of Mitch as a bad person now. He didn’t mean to just leave a guy who fainted, but he honestly didn’t know. He is down in the kitchen with the other guys. He seems pretty upset about the situation,” he says breaking the silence. I know Mitch isn’t a bad person. He has been nothing but good to me and I’m really grateful for that.
“I don’t think of him as a bad person, Jason,” I say looking over at him. “It’s just, that I think he didn’t do the right thing. He made a bad decision that’s all.” He looks at me with a small smile as he wraps his arm around my shoulders pulling me closer to him. We sit there for a little bit.
“Can I ask you something?” I then say. He nods as a response and I go on. “Do you think age matters? - I mean there is 4 years between Mitch and I…” I ask and look at him waiting for a response.
“Well I think that he’s probably ready for some stuff that you aren’t ready for yet, but that shouldn’t come in the way of your relationship.” His arm is still wrapped around me and I nod in response.
“One more thing Jason… Do you think that I’m… um… weird?” I ask a bit nervous about his answer.
“Why would you think that Karoline?” he asks with a confused look on his face.
“Oh, it’s just I heard Jerome and Ty talk about me and they both called me weird…” I say with what I think is a smile.
“Karoline, that doesn’t matter. Being called weird is a compliment. I just think it’s because you are from a different country and all, don’t worry about it,” he says squeezing my shoulders.
“Okay, but they are right - I am weird, I do a lot of stuff different from you guys and my mind works differently.”
“It sure does, but that is a good thing! Do you want to go down to the other guys with me?” I nod and we get up from the bed. He opens the door for me on the way down like a true gentleman.
When we get down Mitch is looking at me and I at him. I walk over to him and pull him in for a hug.
“I’m sorry that I yelled at you,” I whisper into his neck.
“It’s okay, I didn’t use my brain and made a stupid decision.” He says and kisses me on the top of my head. I look up at him and kiss him in the lips -nothing wild, just a peck to tell him that I love him. He hugs me even tighter and I take a deep breath of his sent. He smells amazing. As I breath out I whisper; “I love you.”
