10. Chapter 10

Chapter 10

My mother is in danger. My friends hate me and might die. My house and belongings are gone. I have nothing. The only thing that I have is Leo.

I start to cry. The tears on my sweat covered face feels refreshing. I fall to my knees in front of Leo with my face in my hands.

Leo sits beside me and pulls me in so I lean on him. His heartbeat calms me.

"Let's go inside." He says to me.

"I can't go inside as you can tell." I say still crying.

Leo stands up and picks me up like how a husband carries his wife. He opens the front door and we go inside. He places me in the couch and heads to the kitchen. He grabs me a water and sits beside me.

"You don't have to be so nice, Leo." I say while whipping a tear.

"My new neighbour and friends close ones are kidnapped by the demons ruler. And also her house has just been blown up. I have to do this for you because it's the only thing I should do." He says while opening my water bottle. I lean over and kiss him on his soft cheek.

"Thank you." I say.

He wraps his arm around me and I lean into him. I start to fall asleep.

My dream starts off with me standing alone. Fire surrounds me and I stand there lost and not knowing what to do. I see a group of people coming my way and I yell to them for help. They see me but ignore me.

"This is just a dream." I say.

I suddenly wake up. It has only been a minute.

"What's wrong?" Leo asks me.

"It was a dream. Nothing wrong." I say.

"I think you should get some sleep. Where would you like to sleep?" He asks.

"I'm fine on the couch thanks." I say.

"Here's a blanket and pillow. Call me if you need anything. I'll just be in the other room sleeping." He says.

I nod.

I lay down and think. I try to think of calming things but all I can do is cry. Tears wet my pillow. All I want to do is stay strong but I can't.

It's been 40 minutes and I Still can't fall asleep. I hear movement in the other room and I know that Leo is awake. I stand up and make my way to where he is sleeping. I walk in to the room.

"You awake?" I ask.

"I can't fall asleep." He mumbles.

I start to cry a bit but am able to reply.

"Me either." I say. You can tell by my voice that I am upset.

Leo gets out of bed an walks towards me. He hugs me. I dig myself into his chest and start to cry harder.

"Wanna watch a movie to get our minds off things?" He asks.

I nod. We head over to the couch and I plop myself onto it. Leo stands in front of the TV and looks at me. I look back but I can't look into his eyes. Now that I have feelings for him it's hard to look into his eyes.

"Why are you always so nervous around me?" He asks.

"I am not nervous." I chuckle trying to make it less obvious.

"Yeah you are. You can't look at me for more than 5 seconds anymore. What happened.?" He asks.

"Nothing..." I say.

"Whatever. What movie do you want to watch?" He says.

"Anything without a love story." I say. He laughs at my remark.

"So that leaves..." He says looking around. "A documentary on Albert Einstein."

I we both laugh. It's my first time hearing him laugh and it's adorable. I really so like him but I can't deal with a relationship. If I were to date him at this moment a whole bunch of drama will come between is because of Pete. I don't feel like getting my heart broken again and I don't really like the whole relationship idea anymore.

"But seriously, what movie has no love story?" He says.

"A good one." I say. He laughs again but looks at my face. He can tell that I have been hurt by someone and that I am actually serious.

"Okay." He says while looking down. Why is it so easy for him to read me like a book when it is so hard for me to even look at him. He starts to walk over to me on the couch and I look down.

"Am I a bad person?" I say to him without making eye contact.

"No. Not at all." He says to me.

"Look at me." He says. I look into his beautiful turquoise eyes but I turn away quickly. It's just too much for me. I can't handle the beauty.

"Oh my God! Am I a bad person?" He says raising his voice a little.

"No! You could never be a bad person!" I say back.

"Then why is it so hard for you to look at me?" He says. I look at him. I look into his eyes and see how hurt he is. I never meant to hurt him. It's just that since I like him and all it's hard to look at him.

"I..uh.." I say. I try to get the words out but they can't get out properly.

"Whatever. I guess I am not worth your respect." He says. He gets up from the couch and walks into his room. I race after him into the dark room. Even though I can't see I still wanna get my point across.

"You got it all wrong." I say, "it's not because you are a bad person.. It's just that whenever I look into your eyes I either stare for too long or I am too afraid to stare. You are just such a nice, selfless, brave guy that has such great looks it's not hard to get nervous looking at you." I can't believe that I just said that. It all came out and I can't take it.

I walk out the door and go back to the couch. I hear footsteps following me and I turn around. Leo is standing there, smiling. It's nice to see his smile again. I get lost in those turquoise eyes again.

"Now I get the whole staring thing." He says while winking.

"Sorry." I say turning around and rushing to the couch.

"No it's cute don't worry." He says walking after me. We both plop ourselves on the couch.

"Did you mean everything you said about me?" Leo says getting nervous. I can tell when he is nervous. He always holds the back of his neck.

"Uh.. I did." I say looking at him.

"Thanks for the actual eye contact." He says.

I giggle a bit.

Leo looks into my eyes. He starts to lean in for a kiss. I can't kiss him. I just can't.

"I'm sorry." I say leaning away. "I just can't."

"Sorry. I got carried away. But may I ask what's wrong?" He says awkwardly.

"Love is a pile of poop." I start "it's stupid."

"Why?" He says.

"I've gotten hurt one too many times. And no boy will change my feelings about love!" I say.

"You never know. You could give.." He says while coughing. It wasn't just a normal cough it was an attention cough. The cough meant "YO IM RIGHT HERE!" Lauren used to do that to me. "..it a chance."

"I'm sorry." I say. I can feel the tears coming on.

"I'll let you sleep. " Leo says.

"No stay." I say. He sits back down beside me. I lean on him and get comfortable leaning onto his chest.

"I needed a safe haven." I whisper while falling into a deep sleep as a tear rolled down my cheek. Leo kisses the top of my forehead as I drift off. His kiss sent me a chill down my back. The kiss sent me butterflies. It made me forget all the crap I am going through. It felt right.
