6. Chapter 6

Nate yelled after me, but he couldn’t follow me in his boxers and before he had pants on I was gone. I didn’t knew where to go, I couldn’t go back to my room because Nate knew where I lived. At all luck I had my book in my purse so I went to a café near by and started to read my book. But I was almost finish with it so it could only keep me occupied for two hours or some.

I didn’t wanted to think about Nate, I had left him hanging with a lot of questions and a wrong impression. Him and I couldn’t start something, I was damage good. I had been broken for such a long time now that I was inflexible and he was perfect. He could choose any girl he wanted, he wouldn't stay alone for long. I couldn’t think about this now. I had to talk to James to get my mind of Nate.

Hey, can we Skype?

Yeah, can you wait 30 min? Then Johanne and Chloe will be ready too.


I read the last of my book and then skyped with them. I love speaking with them, Johanne is always happy. My little niece had grown so much the last 6 months. I missed them more than anything. It was so nice to talk with them all, James’ new job was good, Chloe was happy because she had startet studying again to midwife. Johanne was beginning to speak and she recognized me now, because we had been skyping a lot since I came here. I didn’t get to see them as much as home because they lived far away.

I talked with them an hour and then I went to the library to return the book and get a new one. It was my plan to stay here the whole day and not think of Nate. A text came in from Sky.

Hey where are you? You are not in your room.

I’m at the library. I needed to get a book. It wasn't a lie but not the whole truth either.

Which library? then I can come to you I’m so bored.

I couldn't keep reading, I still thought of Nate. Maybe Sky could get my mind of him.

I’m at the library near Campus, you know the one where you can sing in the morning.

Great! See you soon XO.

I sat down in one of the chairs nearby the door so it would be easy for her to find me. I kept reading my book because if I didn’t I would think of him. I had gotten so caught up in my book that I had forgotten to look after the door. But when I looked up it wasn’t Sky who was standing in front of me but Nate.


I had used the whole day to stay away from him and then Sky betrayed me.

“What are you doing here?” Please say that it was a convenience that he came by this library.

“Looking for you of cause. You ain’t easy to track down”

“I wasn’t hiding” Of cause I did but I wasn't going to admit that.

He took the book out of my hand and read the front.

“Jane Austen huh, I thought you was the kind of person who read Stephen King”

“Why did you think that?” Did i look like a person who would read scary books?

“Because you like to run, and you are so serious all the time”

“I’m not serious all the time, and I hate running” The electricity was unbearable, I wanted to touch him again.

“Don’t you have somewhere to be instead of looking after me?” I had to make a distance between us.

“No. Can’t you feel it?” He looked at me with his intense eyes.

“Feel what?”

“This” He waved his hand between us.

“What is this?” Could he feel it too?

“The electricity” I just looked at him. I thought it was only me who could feel it. He must have seen the truth in my face because he stepped closer.

“You feel it, so why do you keep running?” He stood so close that I could smell him. Once again I was trapped. But this time it was in a good way.

“I don’t run. I protect myself” I couldn’t look at his face now.

“What do you protect yourself from? Me?”

“Yes, you”


“You are going to break my heart if we continue this” Now it was my turn to wave my hands between us.

“You are breaking mine right now without trying” This was the first time I looked at him since this morning. He really looked hurted.

“No I’m not Nate. You could get every girl you wanted so why me? I’m nothing special. I’m a sad girl who isn't very polite and I haven’t done anything else then being mad at you”

“You surely don’t want me Nate” This time I looked away.

He took my hand and pulled me through the door.

“Where are we going?”

“Back to your room. We have to talk about this in private”

“There is nothing to talk about Nate” He didn’t answer me he just kept walking against the Campus.

It didn’t take long. Nate walked fast and was very determined about not letting me go before we had talked about this. I couldn’t do anything because this was probably the last time we would hold hands and I would be so close to him.

Nate was better without me. I will pull him down with my weight. Nate is like a perfect plane and I’m the goose who fly into the engine so it crashes. I will not be Nates goose so I have to let him fly.

Nate knocked on the door because I had left my key in there and I haven’t been back since last night. At all luck Simone was home, it meant that Nate couldn’t come in and we couldn’t have our talk.

“Who are you?” Simone gave Nate her flirty eyes and I got mad.

“I have forgotten my key” Now Simone saw me and looked down to Nate’s and my hands. She opened the door more so I could get in, but Nate just followed me.

“Simone can you give us a minute? I need to talk to Daisy in private” He smiled his perfect smile no one could resist.

“Yeah sure, I was on my way out so it fits perfect” I was choked. Simone left because he asked. She wasn’t on her way out, she was in her pajamas.

“You don’t have to leave Simone, Nate and I don’t have anything to talk about” I looked right through him.

She left without saying a word. Great now she would get mad because she was kicked out of the room.

“You didn't have the right to do that” I was mad and embarrassed once again.

“She didn’t mind, so relax” He sat down on my bed.

There was quiet for a minute so I sat down too, not on the bed but as far away from him as possible. I sat down on the chair at my desk.

“I want you. Why don’t you get that?” He had his serious face on now.

“I told you already. Why don’t you get that?”

“I’m not convinced. I haven't felt this before. Have you?”

“No.” I almost whispered the word out. I didn’t wanted to encourage him more than that.

He was by my side before I noticed him leave the bed. He pulled me up so I stood in front of him with his arms around my hips. I was captured between him and my desk.

“Why don’t you get it, I want you? You are special Daisy and I wanna see what this can be because I truly think it can be amazing”

“You don’t know me Nate” I was about to give up. With him so close was my willpower shut down. Everything captured me. His smell, his eyes, his body even his voice.

“I know enough. But you surely don’t know me if you think I can get every girl on Campus”

He dragged me over to the bed while he still had his arms around me.

“You are going to get to know me now” He was very determined. He let go of me but I could see that he wanted me to sit down on the bed.

“My name is Nathaniel George Dairy I’m 21 years old, I’m from Dayton in Indiana. I have grown up with my mom, dad and my little sister. You have already seen pictures of them at my room. This is my second year of college and I’m planning to be a publisher one day”

“Now it’s your turn” Nate took his thumb and ran it over my shin. It was a gentle touch, but the electricity was hot.

“I don’t like talking about myself” That was the truth.


“My name is Daisy Didi Larsen I’m 20 years old. I’m from a small city in Denmark. I have grown up with my mom, dad and my two brothers. There is pictures of them in here” My hand was showing him were in the room they were.

“See that wasn’t so bad” He looked me into the eyes to find out what I was thinking.

“So you are from Denmark? I wouldn't have thought of that” I didn’t answer him because I didn’t know what to say.

“Tell me about your family, what they do, what they are like”. I didn’t wanted to but he wouldn’t leave before I had shared some informations about myself.

“My dad, Paul is in the 50. He is a director in a security firm and have been working with security his whole life. I’m much like him. He is quiet, have no patience and he doesn't smile that often” Nate smiled of my comment.

“My oldest brother James is 28 and have a beautiful daughter Johanne and she is almost 2 years old. He also have a lovely girlfriend. My second brother Alex is a weirdo. He has epilepsy and a brain damage so you can imagine how he is”

“What about your mom?”

“I can’t talk about my mom” Something in my tone did so he didn’t asked more into it.

Nate told me everything about his family and his life. At some point we moved so we laid down on my bed with his arms around me and I loved listening to him. Sometimes he bend down and kissed me.
