19. Chapter Nineteen
“There you go.” Kevin says, putting a wool blanket over my shoulders and puts the ice pack over my eye. “Thank you.” I say and he smiles. He looks quite like Sam. They both have sandy blonde hair, bright brown eyes; he towers over me at about 6’0. He is attractive. “Kev, can you watch her while I go and get some of her stuff?” She asks and he nods. “Yeah,” he says and she grabs her keys and leaves. “You trust a total stranger alone with you?” I ask and he smiles. “I think I can handle myself if you go rabid.” He says, winking and I laugh. “So Nora, what’s your story?” He asks, sitting down on the chair across from the couch. He starts rocking in it and smiles at me like a little kid. “Um, I am just a girl looking for romance in her pathetic life and I thought I had but I guess not. In high school I used to be in love with this guy named Niall, I mean…” I trail off; did I really just say I used to be in love with him? “Nora.” Kevin says and I look up at him. “Oh sorry, I wasn’t really in love with Niall, he used to bully me and then on a dare we started to date. Well the only way I could get out of dating him was to have sex with him. I refused and we dated and then at the end of the school year he told me that me falling in love with him and him breaking my heart was the second part of the dare.” I say, biting back my tears. He gets up and sits next to me. “Hey, it’s okay.” He says but I shake my head. “I was in love with him, no matter how much I pretended it didn’t hurt me by the way he acted it broke off little pieces of my heart.” I say and he wraps his arm around me and I cry on his chest.
“You’re cheating!” I shout laughing and I smack Kevin’s hand. He slaps my hand and I laugh. “Kevin!” I shout and he laughs. “I am not cheating; you just suck at video games.” He says and I roll my eyes. I was perched in his lap, his arms around my waist with a game controller resting in his hands and my arms are above his with a controller in my hands, my back pressed against his chest. He smacks my hand again and I laugh. I turn and poke his face. I turn back around and keep smacking his hands. The game finally ends and he wins and I make a pouty face. “Cheater,” I pout, climbing off of his lap. “Hungry?” He asks but I shake my head. “I’m sorry Nora.” He says and I yawn. I lean on his shoulder and he smiles. “Now this random stranger is lying on my shoulder.” He teases and I smack his chest. I lean the other way and he gets up and picks me up and he lies down and I close my eyes, lying my head on his chest and soon drift off into sleep.
