When Tom had fallen asleep, Anna was just laying there watching him, he looked so sweet and innocent, when he was sleeping. She felt so bad and she didn't know what to do.
She had no doubt about her love for Tom, and she was almost angry with Zachary, why did he affect her like that, you weren't supposed to want to kiss someone else that the one you loved.
What would have happened if Chris hadn't come right there ? Could she trust herself if she found herself alone with Zachary again ? She wasn't sure and would do anything to avoid it.
Anna didn't feel like going on set, she was scared Zachary might be there, but she couldn't ask Tom, it would seem strange and she know he would be upset if she didn't go.
"Wow this is amazing". Anna was looking around she felt like a kid in an candy store.
Toms face lighted up, her enthusiasm was contagious. "Yeah it is pretty great, and just wait until all the computer stuff is put on top of it".
"I can't wait to see the movie when it's done, to see if Loki is still the bad guy". She pushed him playfully.
He laughed. "Ehehehe wouldn't you love to know ? But what makes you think he could be anything else ? He is evil isn't he ?"
She looked at him very insulted. "No Tom, Loki isn't evil, he is misunderstood and hurt".
"You know what Anna, you actually understanding Loki makes love you even more". He kissed her lovingly.
He let her go and looked at her apologetically. "It is gonna take some time in make-up and costume, but you can wait here or in the cafeteria, and I come get you when I am ready".
"It is fine Tom, I think I am going to write for a bit, I think i will stay out here in the fresh air". She kissed him on the cheek, and sat down on a nearby bench.
She unpacked her laptop, and started writing, her story had changed, it was like her characters had a life of their own and sometimes did something else than she ment them to do.
Anna was so deep in her story that she didn't see him coming, she didn't even realise he sat down next to her before she could suddenly smell him, that warm, spicy and maskuline fragrance.
"Zac fuck I didn't hear you". She almost jumped off the bench, looking up at him, so he was here.
He smiled at her, his eyes showing that he was every inch as insecure as she was. "I didn't mean to scare you, you looked so concentrated, what are you writing ?"
"I am just working on my book". She closed the laptop, she didn't want him to read it.
"I will look forward to read it when it gets out". He moved around, looking uncomfortable.
Anna tried to act normale and breathe, she could get sucked into this, Tom could get back any minute. "Let's se if it get published first".
"I am sure it does Anna, you just have to believe in it, believe in you, then it will happend". He padded her hand clumsily, like he was afraid to touch her.
She closed her eyes and breathed in deeply. "Zac, that thing last night, I don't know what happened, but I am happy Chris came".
"I wont lie, I am so not happy he came, but I know Anna, and I am standing down, Tom is my friend, and I can't do that to him". He ran his hand through his hair.
"Thank you Zac, I really really like you, but I love Tom and I can't hurt him or ruin what we have together". She put her hand gently on his cheek and he closed his eyes leaning into it.
He opened his eyes looking directly into hers. "So if you hadn't been with Tom, if you and I had met first, would I have had a chance ?"
"I don't really think you need me to answer that to know that you would". She said, her cheeks turning pink.
He stod up, grabbed her hand and kissed it softly. "If Tom is ever foolish enough to let you go, please give me a call. I better get down to make-up".
"Se you Zac". She watched him walk away, his head bowed, why did her live need to be so complicated ?
