5. Our Last Goodbyes
"How... HOW could you do this to me?!"
"It's for your own good, Zoey! I felt badly for throwing away your future. I'm doing this... well... for YOU."
I paused, lower lip pooching out, eyes beading up in tears. "You're right," I choked. "But I don't want to lose you..."
"We'll keep in touch, promise," Elijah said hopefully. He reached into his pocket and produced a shiny, jet-black Samsung Galaxy.
I gasped. "Oh, no, no! You didn't have to get me this!!"
"It's for you. And you're keeping it, and I'm paying all the fees."
"No!" I gasped, shattered that we would have to leave, but somewhat beaming. I wrapped my arms around his neck and hugged him tight. "I'll miss you, babe..."
"Wait," I interrupted, pulling away. "Where were you last night?"
"Paying for the phone and using it to call your parents. They're still frazzled to this day."
"Then... then HOW exactly did I fall asleep right after waking up and wondering where the heck you were?! It doesn't add u-"
He then shut me up with a warm and gracious kiss. One that I would never forget.
