Eddie opened her eyes and looked around there were alcohol bottles everywhere. She sat up and pondered about why she had decided to get drunk the night before. Then she realised why. Max had left. She had fell for another man and all they did was hurt her again. Eddie got dressed and went to work, stopping off at the pharmacist for paracetamol on the way. Finally she reached the roof where it had all started, where she had fallen for the first man.
“You’re in the middle of a hangover I’m guessing. Sorry about Max, if you don’t hit me I will explain why I left.” Eddie turned around and saw Luc stood there.
“It’s too late for explanations Luc, but I need to pass the time so you better start before I change my mind.” Luc took a deep breath and started.
“I was scared. Freaked out actually, well I’d never been in a serious relationship before and I will just come out with it. I freaked out and left but came back for you. I love you.” Luc told her really fast.
Eddie looked at Luc blankly. “What?” She asked.
“I freaked out...” Eddie held up her hand to stop him.
“The next bit.” Luc furrowed his eyebrows and continued.
“I’ve never been in a serious relationship...”
Again Eddie held her hand up, “no the next bit.”
“I freaked out and left...” Eddie put her hand up another time.
“Look Luc I meant the last bit, you know the final bit at the end.” Luc looked at her and nervously smiled at her, he rubbed the back of his neck slowly.
Luc smiled at her. “I love you.” Then Luc bent down so his face was in front of Eddie’s, put his hands on either side of her head and pulled her into his arms then linked his lips to hers, to end his story with a passionate kiss.
Eddie went bright red she smiled at him her eyes shiny with delight, “I love you to Luc, I’m glad your back.”
Eddie woke up the next morning and looked beside her at Luc, the night before was all a blur now but she vaguely remembered it. She thought something had gone on because Luc was lying in her bed and both of them had no clothes on. Eddie sighed and smiled then she went back under the covers snuggled up to Luc. ‘Once again I’ve fell for a man. But not any man. The first man.’ She thought falling back to sleep in his arms.
