5. Chapter 5

He followed me the whole way back to my door at the dorm. I didn’t think he could come in the building this late, but somehow he got in without anyone noticing. I wasn’t the first to speak, I felt like this was a game and he tested me to see when I would jump in his arms and beg him to kiss me like all the other girls did.

I looked after my keys in my purse but I couldn’t find them. I had locked myself out, of course of all nights it should be tonight. I knocked on the door but I knew it was a longshot because Simone was always out partying in weekends with her friends and I didn’t know where they were tonight.

“I have locked myself out. Do you know where I can get a spare key?” Ok, so I lost this time.

“You can’t get a spare key so late” At least he didn’t sound like he was mocking me.

“Do you know where your roommate is?”

“No. She’s probably out partying at some frat house or something” I was so tired and I just wanted to sleep, but it looked like I had to sleep out here in the hallway.

“Well then you have to come with me” He smiled. I could get lost in his smile.
I make a note to myself that I won’t get lost in his smile, because that is the smile he use to get girls and I’m are not one of them.

I was about to protest when he took my hand and forced me to walk after him.

“Nate, I can’t come with you”

“Why not?” He didn’t even looked at me, he just kept walking.

“I don’t know you, you could be a serial killer”

“Oh no! Daisy how did you know? I have to kill you now and change look so no one will ever find me!” I didn’t knew I was smiling until he touched my lips with his thumb. I could feel the electricity in his touch, it took my breath away.

“You look so pretty when you smile, you should do that more often” My cheeks blushed and I had to look away.

“If I smiled all the time it would just be fake and I don’t like that. It wouldn’t feel like me” Why did I say this? I needed to find Simone so I could come into the room and get some sleep.

“Come let's go, you are tired” Nate started walking again but this time he didn’t force me to walk with him I just did.

“I can’t go with you Nate. I still don’t know you, and you don’t know me” I wasn’t as stubborn as I used to be because even though this was my word my feet didn’t followed them.

“I know you. I know you are stubborn, you don’t smile fake smiles, you can sing, you are not from America and you are the most interesting person I have met in a long time”

“Ok so you know some things about me, but that isn’t me. You don’t know my hobbies, where I’m from, my family or anything. And I don’t know you” I was surprised about how much he had noticed me.

“Well even though you don’t know me now, you still need a place to sleep and it can’t be in the hallway”


“Not buts, you sleep here and I promise I won't touch you” It was more like an order than a question. I didn’t protest when he took me through the door to his room it was probably the alcohol there made me so dumb.

There wasn't much in there. It looked like mine except that here there was one bed instead of two. He had pushed the beds together so he had one big. On the walls was there some school flags from the football team and some pictures of his family but that was it. I walked around and looked at the pictures of his family. They were all so beautiful and specially a young girl who had the same eyes as him. I hope it is his sister.

“She is beautiful” I turned around and looked at Nate.

“Yes she is” Nate looked at me with an intensity I haven’t seen before.

“Um.. do you have some clothes I can sleep in?” My cheeks blushed once again. I looked away so he couldn’t see it.

“I like when you blush. That is the only time I know what you are feeling” He opened the closet and pulled a long t shirt out for me. He threw it to me and I just looked at him.

“Can you turn around while I change?” He probably never had a girl over who asked him to look the other way while she changed. Or one who changed at all.
He turned around without any protest. I changed fast and hurried down under the covers so he wouldn’t get to see that much of me. I’m kind of shy and I have never slept in the same bed as a boy. Or I have, but not a boy like Nate.

Nate took his clothes of effortless and didn’t mind if I looked at him. I tried not to but it was so capturing. He went under the covers too and I turned my back to him, I had to pull my eyes away from him or else I don’t know what I was going to do. There is this electricity between us that I can’t pull away from. It drags me toward him and I’m not sure that I have the strength to keep away from him so much longer.

“Goodnight Nate” I was almost asleep already.

“Goodnight Daisy” I could feel a flicker of a hand touching my hair but I was already asleep so I didn’t protest.

I woke up because I was too hot, I tried to get the cover off but Nate was in the way. Somehow through the night had I rolled over to him, and him toward me. We was one big pile of arms and legs filtered in and I couldn’t find a way to get out without him waking so I stayed put.

I didn’t feel tired anymore as I used to in the morning. My nightmares always made me wake up in the middle of the night with a scream, but tonight I haven't woken up. It was the first night in over two years. I haven’t slept a whole night without nightmares since mom died.

A tear fell from my eyes when I remembered, not that I had forgotten it, but for once I didn’t cried myself to sleep or waken up with the worst picture in my mind.

A gentle hand swiped my tears away and I looked at him. I was embarrassed that he had seen me cry, so I looked away again. He was awake now so I hurried up and took my pants on.

“Where are you going? Can’t we talk about it?” Nate sounded desperate but I had to get away. He had seen me cry and nobody had done that since my mom’s funeral. I didn’t know what to feel about it, it was nice to be comforted but I felt weak and weakness was not something Nate should see. I was about to open the door when Nate came between the door and I.

"There is nothing to talk about, thank you for letting me stay but now I need to go"

“Why are you running? I promise I didn’t touched you” He looked at me but I didn’t looked back. I was too embarrassed.

“Daisy talk to me” His hands was on my shoulders and all I wanted to do was jumping into his arms and let him comfort me. Where does this urge come from? I have only spend a few hours with him and the most of them we haven’t even been speaking.

“I have to go Nate” I can’t run into his arms.

“Not until you talk to me” The electricity was bigger than ever before and I couldn’t pull away. I kissed him. First it was a surprise for both of us I wasn’t prepared for it and he certainly wasn’t either. The kiss started as small one but he made it deeper, so much deeper. I could kiss him all day every day. I was swimming away in this electricity. He held around me and turned me around so I now had the back to the door. He was still in his boxers, my hands couldn’t keep away from his bare skin. I kept coming back to it like mosquitoes fly toward light.

I had to stop the kiss so I could breath. Nate stood with his forehead against mine and tried to catch his breath.

“I have been waiting for that since the first time I saw you” His eyes captured mine.

“You mean the first time we spoke where you only said one word to me?”

“No not that time, that was the first time I spoke to you but I have seen you before that”

“Where did you see me the first time?” I was confused, I hadn’t seen him before that and he is a person you notice. When he walks into a room everyone will stop talking and look at him.

“I saw you in the airport when you arrived” I had been so confused that day with all the new impressions.

“Why was you at the airport?”

“I was arriving too” His body was so close to me, it kept me warm.

“From where?”

“Where did you arrive from?” He smiled at me because I still hadn’t shared that information with him. The question pulled me back to reality and made me realise that I was the one near the door now. Nate was capturing me and I didn’t liked it, I had to get away before it was too late.


“I’m sorry” I kissed him quickly again as a goodbye kiss before I opened the door and disappeared.
