20. The Kiss
It is 4 am. I have been lying on my mattress for more than an hour. The house is really quiet. Everyone is sleeping except from me. Why I can’t sleep?? I’m thirsty, so I get up without making any noise and went to the kitchen. I’m drinking a glass of water when I realize the door of the kitchen is open. I pass through and I’m in a nice balcony. I go outside just to check out when I heard a voice. His voice
“Enjoying the party?”
“Yes. I thought you weren’t in the house. I haven’t seen you here yet”
“Lottie kind of prohibit me to go down stairs”
“What are you doing here?”
“I couldn’t sleep and I was thirsty”
“I can’t sleep neither. I always come here when I can’t sleep. I like to sit here and look and the stars, think of nothing. C’mon sit here” he said pointing to a spot next to him.
I sit by his side. He is right. The sky is beautiful.
“Uhm…can I ask you a question?”
“Why you asked, insisted on Lottie inviting me to this party?”
He stays in silence for a moment
“Because…because I wanted you here, close to me. I like talking to you, texting you. I like being with you. I like you. And just to know that you were here in my house made feel good. I like to keep you close to me. Alison you are an amazing girl. You are intelligent, dedicated, talent, funny and beautiful…”
His hand are holding mine. I’m speechless. I don’t know what to do. He is coming closer to me. But this I let him. He put his hands in face and kisses me.
