"I love you."
The three words that was never ever spoken by Adam before, and never did I think he would speak of it.
I stared into his eyes. In there lies such honesty, and care. And for once, not filled with lust and lies.
My heart pounding, ready to burst at any second now. The mood was unpleasant, which is to our knowledge.
This was the other side of him that I have never ever seen before, and was rare.
The world around me blurred for a while as tears started dripping. Why was I crying?
He lifted up my chin and kissed my forehead. "I'm really sorry for what I have done to you all these years. A part of me died, seeing you with other people. I guess the part that died was my senses. I lost control of myself and let the jealousy get the best of me. I know I never should have done that and I regret ever doing those ugly, horrendous acts. I swear, swear to God I will forever consider your feelings with mine, uniting both of us."
After he wiped my tears away, I let my tears drip more.
What should I do?
"I know I'm being really selfish, and I deserve your hatred, all of them. And if you want me to leave you, I'll do it. Anything. I'll just be me. If you desire, we'll be just strangers. I‘ll stop hurting you, talking to you or anything. I will forbid myself from even thinking about you. Just say the word. All I want is for you to forgive me, and I'll leave from your pain, and memories. Trust my words."
He was apologizing, and never thought I would think this day would ever appear. All I ever wanted from him, for him to be leaving me alone. But now the chance is right in front of me, what should I do?
I took a deep breath, before replying.
"Look Adam, all these years, you've given me nothing but pain. Not only mentally, but also physically. I have even thought about getting a restraining order."
I chuckled at the last part, but his expression didn't change.
"But I didn't. I thought about you. Your feelings. I know you're sincere about apologizing to me like this. But words can't fix my scars, it's too deep. All that I can say is, I forgive you. But to have a second chance? Prove actions with it. And I can't trust you with actions, you know that. I endured everything you've done to me, but all you've done to me, since we met was getting emotions get the best of you. You're amazing with words, but useless when it comes to actions. And I think it's for the best, if you leave me."
I was coping with what I said. Was I doing the right thing? Was letting him go will help me?
He looks like he was expecting my answer.
"You're right. From now on, we'll be strangers. I won't be expecting anything from you. Just forget I ever happened."
He quickly leaned forward, to give another quick, but deep kiss on my lips. But it was a different kiss. This one was filled with emotions, and not greed and lust.
