It was a Tuesday night. She was bored in class when a friend told her to meet one of his best friends who is in the city. What she never thought was that night was the beginning of a lesson that she did not have to learn.
It was a cold winter night. She left work late, she tired but she went to meet the guy.
20min late for dinner they agreed.
He was there, sited by the window, wearing a cream cap, quite serious.
She said “Hello” and he said hello with a smile and a hug. She felt she knew him since forever.
Took her just a few hours to understand he needs to be heard, to be taken serious and to be love.
After dinner, he said “come with me” and they went to a bar.
He showed her pictures of him naked because he wanted to her to believe he was a soccer player. A move that made clear he was looking for a hookup. Was risky, but he wakes the curiosity on her that night.
Time passed. Was time to leave. He grabbed her hand and said “stay”.
A few hours later she stood up and said “I’m leaving”. He said “wait for me”.
They left the bar together, she walked to the bus stop and he said “while you’re with me, I will not go alone in the middle of the night.” He called a taxi.
They went to his place. They talked the whole night. If he was looking for something else, it did not get it.
She knew since the first moment, she should not trust in him.
She was not afraid to be alone with him, he were very respectful.
He told her he loved her smile and the more she listened, the more she felt attracted to him.
There was a connection difficult to explain between them, but she knew he had a secret.
They kept talking during the week and he began to flirt.
That weekend she took him to had dinner with her family. They saw in him what she refused to accept, he were arrogant and without common sense. But she decided to give him a try; not very often someone made her feel special.
After dinner, he took her to a bar. They danced all night. She liked when he tried to kiss her without actually doing so.
Hours passed, and he waited the last minute for kiss her. The kiss happen in the middle of the track, she never kissed in the middle of a crowd, he made her to feel free.
That night she said “I like you”.
The next day, they walked around the city and went to a bar with live music.
They kissed, they couldn’t stop. She knew he wanted her, she felt it, she saw it.
It took only three days together to make her felt trapped and completely in love.
In one of their dinners he said, “You’re making me rethink many things.” What most surprised her was when he said “I want your heart.” She did not answer.
The next day she invited him to spend the night.
They talked the whole night until they fall asleep. That night they did not make love.
She started to ask to life why he came into her live without warning? Why she felt so completed? How was possible with just a few weeks she can be happy?
Two weeks have passed.
He invited her to have dinner at his place. Was on a Wednesday night when there were no excuses and where there were no longer barriers.
His kisses swept every centimeter of her body; his fingers touched her in every corner … he were the best medicine for her pain.
The next morning they woke up when his alarm rang, he hugged and kissed her again.
He left 5 min before her. She wanted to surprise him so she started to organize his apartment.
When she was organizing his dining table, she found a note for Valentine’s Day was in another language, she could not understand, but was signed for a girl and was dedicated to him.
She stayed a few minutes in shock; she could not believe what she was seeing.
For the first time in a long time she felt good with someone, she felt it was just her, she thought she was not sharing.
She just left a note saying: “You could be honest. Thank you for the night. “She grabbed her stuff and go.
At the end of the day, he called her to see her. He said he could not stop to think about her the whole day. She brake down and told him. He apologies, he said “I did not expect to feel good with you, I was so confused, did not know how to tell you.”
She decided to continue the adventure instead of keeping her sanity.
For some reason God put him on her path, nothing is coincidence.
He was kind, he was sweet, but she understood he was just enjoying. It is ok, she thought. She used to being used.
She asked God what was his plan, she didn’t understand why he brought to her life this guy if he was not going to stay.
She began to think of how to say goodbye…
On their last night together, she took him to one of her favorite restaurants. Before they went home, he wanted to go to a hookah bar because he needed to talk to her.
Everything he said she had it on her mind like a tattoo on her skin, he said he will back to her; he will back to where their story began. He talked about future. She just listened, she couldn’t say a word.
They made love one last time and he did not notice she cried, that was her happiness fading away, she knew he will not come back.
The final day arrived … she took a deep breath, he was still sleeping. She gave him a kiss on his forehead, she hug him and got up from the bed like a thief in the middle of the night.
She couldn’t say “do not leave me”, that morning hug was her way to say “I need you.. because I love you.”
