You & Me Against the World

Esteban only has one person who truly cares for him and that's his Tia (aunt) , but that changes when he gets sent off to live with his dad. He soon meets a troubled girl who turns out to play a big role in his life. They go through some life changing events together and begin to grow feelings in matter of days, but the problem is ... Will they make it through the obstacles that come their way.


11. Some bad news.

I wake up to a stuffy nose and I sore throat.

Then Esteban walks in with a tray of food and medicine. 

"Hey there beautiful" he says with a bright smile on his face, " I felt your forehead earlier this morning, and you were burning up so I decided to bring you breakfast in bed."

"Thank you." I managed to say with a hoarse voice.

"No problem, baby cakes. I'll do anything to make you feel better." 

 I stayed silent and thought to myself. 

It felt good having him there because I never really had someone cater me and care for me the way he did.

"So we are rescheduling our day in the bay for when you get better" he said.

"Well I don't think that's a good idea... Well not after what happened last night.." I said.

"Oh.. Well by the time you get better I will have things taken care of." He said in a lower tone as if he didn't want me to hear what he had said.

"What do you mean taken care of?" I emphasized 'taken care of' when I asked.

"Well I made some arrangements." He said.

"What kind of arrangements?" I asked very confused now

"Well I got a hold of those people who are after you and... I'm just gonna pay off your debt myself."

"No!" I shouted, "you shouldn't have contacted them... Cause something could go wrong and then they would come after you... And I just don't want to put you in danger again Esteban..." I said as tears built up in my eyes.

"Well I called them off of a pay phone, if that makes it any better... And I'm not actually going to meet them in person... Im going to take the money somewhere and they are going to pick it up after i drop it off. And they won't know where until after I do it. I'm just trying to help Liana. I don't want you to have to worry about these people any longer." He explained to me.

"Well I guess that makes it a little better... But after this can't we just like take a trip away from here for a while?" I asked and put on my puppy dog face because I know he can't say no to that face.

"Exactly. If that's what you would like . Where would you like to go?" 

I opened my mouth to speak, but then the house phone started ringing. 

Esteban went to go answer the phone and he said, "hello?"

I don't know what the person on the other end was saying but I know it wasn't good because I saw Esteban's face fill with sadness and tears were sliding down the side of his perfectly shaped cheeks.

"Okay. I'll try to get there as soon as I can. Just call me and inform me about what the doctors say." He said to the other person.

"W-what's wrong?" I asked.

"It's my Tia . She's in the hospital."

"What happened ? Is she going to be okay? Do you want me to start packing our stuff so we can go and see her?" I asked rapidly.

"No Liana. I can't, I need to pay those guys before we go anywhere. " he said .

"Well hurry up let's go to a bank, withdraw some money then find the nearest pay phone and tell them..." I said.

He didn't answer me so I looked up at him, and I found him trying to hold everything in. It's probably because he was in front of me.

I walked to him and led him to the sofa so it was easier for me to hold him in my arms as tightly as I could.

Then I said,  "just let it all out.  Everything will be okay. Before you know it we're going to be on a plane flying to Chicago to see your Tia." I said trying to soothe and relax him.

He looked up at me and then said, "Liana, I just want you to know..."

"Know what?" I asked.

"That I love you and I want you always by my side." As he said that I pulled him closer and brought his head  up so that our faces aligned with one another.

"I love you too. And I always will be. It's just you and me against the world... Just you and me." I said softly.

He pulled away and wiped the tears from his eyes an then said, "well let's get this stuff taken care of."

"Let's do it." I said .
