The day after the dinner, they got a break from the tour so I went to their hotel since the early morning and said hi to everyone who was in there.
Nick had asked me about my favorite place in my city so I took him to my perfect place: The Coffee Factory in front of Bellas Artes.
It was a little cafeteria but the food was delicious and I liked the view. It was my favorite because it helps you to clear your ideas.
We were talking about how long we hadn’t seen each other and how we missed our times together. I’m not gonna lie, I was still sad and what we were saying didn’t feel real to me.
Even when I didn’t want him to know that, I couldn’t help my face to tell him something different.
“You okay?” Nick asked transporting me back to the earth.
“Yep.” I lied and took a bit of coffee.
“I don’t believe you.” He said taking my hand and making me shiver. “You’ve been like moody and distracted since… we were in Tampa.”
“I don’t know what are you talking about.” I lied once again.
“There’s something I want to tell you, but I can’t do it if you still mad at me for… I don’t even know the reason why you’re mad at me.”
“I-I’m… What do you want me to know? That you’re back with Delta?” I said taking my hand back and turning my head to the beautiful building beside us.
“What? No, I’m definitely not with her.” He assured.
“Don’t lie to me! I’m not even the only one that knows it’s true!”
“That’s not true! I’ve told you, I’m not dating her! I’m not even in love with her anymore!”
“You really thought I wouldn’t find it out? Come on, Nick! There is a picture of both of you hanging out at Dallas!”
“But… No, is not what you think.” His sparkling eyes were looking at me and that made everything worse for my weak heart.
I told you once that I couldn’t hide my feelings but my sadness and for some reason, the guy that was in front of me made that totally different. He changed me and I still don’t know if it’s for good or for bad.
“This is not about what I think! It’s about what it really is! I can’t believe you didn’t tell me! I can’t believe you don’t trust me as you said you did!” I was spitting words (and almost screamed those words) as I was used to. But at the time I must say I REGRET NOTHING. “You’re such a liar! You made me think about you as someone different! You made me fall in love with someone I thought would be there for me no matter what, at least once in my life!”
My tears began to fall and everything I could see was his fuzzy face through my watery eyes. I headed my hands to cover my face… He was still speechless. And when I wiped away my tears with the back of my hand, I tried really hard to avoid his gaze and the pain in my chest.
“Yo-ou Know?” He stuttered after a few seconds. “Somewhere between laughing for no reason, innocent smiles, long talks and making fun of each other, I fell in love too.”
I looked up at him repeating his words in my mind. I couldn’t get what he was trying to tell me.
“In a first place I thought I was… Using you. I thought I was just trying to get Delta out of me and I really expected things to go back to normal, and I wanted things to get ‘better’ but… you never really left my mind.” He stood up and approached to me. “This is what I wanted to tell you in the first place.”
He wiped the rest of my tears with his thumb and got closer to my face. I could feel his breath closer and closer until his lips met mine and took the whole pain away with those sensible movements. For the first time, since I met Nick, my scent felt extremely sweet, my heart relaxed and my body covered of joy. He put his hand down my neck and continued the kiss until we had to breathe again...
“I wanted to let you know that I love you, I love you like I’ve never loved anyone else.”
MORE TO COME ;)
