Chapter seventeen: Surprise!
I didn't believe what was happening, here was Damon staring at me with a smile , but his eyes showed how much he was hurt, I can't believe he is here ..
I had many question to ask him, and we had a lot to talk about, I am sure Damon is kind enough to understand why me and Richard have kissed.
But I am really worried, I am worried I might lose Damon because of this kiss.
He stared at both of us and smiled warmly, as much as I felt guilty I have missed Damon so much so I ran to him and hugged him tight.
He chuckled and hugged me back, We remained like that for a couple of seconds.
He smelled amazing, but I couldn't stop thinking about the way Richard has kissed me just a awhile ago.
It was a very good kiss, I admit.
Richard is a very good actor, I almost thought he really loves me.
Just the thought of that made me feel disappointed and nauseous, what the hell is wrong with me? Why do I feel like this?
Richard is just a friend, I shouldn't enjoy his kiss, that's illegal.
Well, illegal for ME!
I heard Damon sigh, that's when I realized that we have been huggin in front of everyone.
People were staring so I pulled away and stared at Damon with a sad smile.
"I have missed you so much" He whispered. So that we and Richard were the only ones who could hear .
"I have missed you too, Damon" I whispered.
Suddenly I felt Richard's arm around my waist. He pulled me closer to him, and I let him.
Damon glared at Richard and asked me to dance.
"Umm I don't feel like dancing right now Damon" I said and bit my bottom lip, What the hell is wrong with me? How can I ever reject Damon? My boyfriend!
But it was true I was too tired to do anything, so I smiled at Damon, He was very disappointed but smiled anyways.
Then he came closer to me " We need to talk!"
This is not good, I know by the tone of his voice that he wants to talk about what he saw, and I once again feel guilty.
I shouldn't have done it!
But if I haven’t done it, I would have been in much bigger trouble.
People would have suspected our relationship, then our parents wouldn’t forgive us.
I sighed and nodded, Damon retreated to the way where the balcony was.
Just as when I was about to follow him , Richard grabbed my arm and made me stare at his amazing eyes.
Did I just say amazing eyes?
"I…Uhh…I..umm .. I am sorry"
Richard was stuttering and sweating, he was like an open book,which was very strange because you never know what Richard is thinking of.
He was clearly feeling guilty, I just smiled at him, and kissed his cheek.
Once I pulled away I noticed people staring, so I decided to give him a peck on his lips.
I know I am crazy1 And Damon is waiting for me, but I have to do this.
This is just for the act, right?
I put my arms around his neck and gave him peck on his lips. He shuddered.
And his hot breath tickled my neck.
When I smiled at him and wanted to pull away, Richard held me tight, he put his arm around my waist, and pulled me closer.
At that instant, when our foreheads were touching, all I could think of was I badly wanted Richard to resume the kiss, I swallowed and stared at his eyes.
He was studying me.
I heard people murmuring and I could hear what they said clearly.
"They are such a cute couple!"
"They're about to kiss"
"They're perfect for each other"
"They are madly in love each other"
But when Richard stared at my lips, I was melted.
And I couldn’t hear anything else after that because all I was thinking of was Richard!
Kiss me !
And he did.
"You were kissing him!" Damon exclaimed angrily.
I swallowed the lump in my throat and just shook my head.
"It was just an act Damon, and you know it!"
Damon shook his head and snorted.
"And it was a good one " He said quietly.
"I can't believe his kissed you in front of me, do you think our relationship is a joke Kristen ?Is it a joke to you ?"
"It's not a joke, it's just that-"
"Oh, please! You know perfectly well what type of guy he is"
We were at the balcony alone, Damon was pissed off about the kiss me and Richard shared, just like I thought.
And here we are arguing about a stupid kiss.
This is not fair, He is not fair. He knows I love him. Why can't he just let it go?!
Damon was fuming he was pacing back and forth, I have never ever seen Damon get pissed at me.
Never in a million years.
What the hell was happening? I want my life to get back to normal.
"No I don't, please inform me what type of guy he is. Because last I checked you were saying that Richard is a good guy and that he has changed "I said angrily, I can't believe I am having a fight with Damon over a stupid thing.
This is so hard, my life has turned upside down, and I am feeling very sad , tired, and depressed.
This is all so much to take, I didn't even realize I was raising my voice, don't get me wrong, I am human being, I get mad too.
But not at Damon!
"You're kidding me right!' Damon snorted and rubbed his cheek in frustration.
"I am not kidding he is a good guy, and he cares for me" I whispered.
Damon laughed at what I have just said ,I can't think straight, this is not the Damon that I love.
This is definitely not him, I thought Damon was understanding.
But I was way wrong.
"He is a pathetic jerk!" Damon hissed, I felt like thousand knives were slicing my heart into pieces, I know Damon means what he says. And I know deep inside that he has never liked Richard.
I wanted to defend Richard, but I shut my mouth, It was no use arguing with Damon now.
He was not himself.
"Damon just listen to me"
"I.. umm. I am very sorry, it was not on purpose I swear"
"I don't care if it was on purpose or not, I don't want my girl to kiss any other guy except for me, do you understand that?"
"I do Damon, but I had no choice"
"You did have a choice the second time he kissed you though, One time was enough, it proved enough, This is un-fucking-believable Kristen! I came all the way here to see you.."
My mouth hung open, I had no words to say anymore, He was right I crossed the line.
Damon sighed and looked away from me.
"Please give me another chance" I whispered. Bceause I was sure my voice would crack if I speak.
Damon didn't utter a word, He didn't even look at me, He just sighed and walked away from me.
"Damon… please…" I yelled after him.
I hadn't realized that I was on my knees and was sobbing, I screwed it up!
Yep. I screwed my relationship with Damon,
What should I do? Should I run after him? Or just let him calm down?
I can't let him go, after loving him for all these years, I won't let him go easily. This was all my fault If I hadn’t kissed Richard none of this would have happened.
But I am too stupid to think, I have hurt Richard before, I was reckless and didn't think of the consequences, And now well I hurt Damon.
And I am so screwed. But Damon is not being reasonable either, he is being reckless too. And he doesn't just understand.
I didn't do this because I was in love with Richard or anything like that, I did it because I had no choice and I was trying to prove to people that me and Richard are in love.
I sigh and wipe my wet cheeks with the back of my hand, guess I should just give Damon some time, it's not easy to see someone you love kiss some other person.
I don't know how I ended up walking in the streets of Paris, but here I was walking in no particular direction , my tears were drained, I was sure I was lost, but I didn't give a damn.
I don't know what I was looking at, I noticed people glaring at me, but I ignored them, I was in my black dress of course, I heard some guys speak in French to me, which I didn't understand I ignored them either.
I was holding my heels in my right hand. I looked up and stared at the sky, it was surprisingly very beautiful and calming,the stars were shining and the moon was very pretty too it was full, I smiled sadly and closed my eyes.
If it wasn't for my bad mood, I would have been very happy, walking the streets of my favorite city, at such a beautiful night.
I opened my eyes, and sighed. The stars were shining even brighter and I liked every single star in the sky.
Oh how much I wish I was a star, at least I would be pure, and I would be surrounded by pure stars, Human is the most evil creature on the planet.
And I admit I am evil too.
I stare at my surrounding for a moment, and that's when I realize I am lost.
"Oh, shit! I am lost for real"
This is all Damon's fault!
How am I supposed to find the villa? Have I really walked all the way here to paris? Since Richard's villa is outside of Paris.
I sigh and shake my head, it's okay I will find it easily.
I walk with my heels still in my hand, I walk for couple of hours, until I get tired, I don't know what time is it, But I know it's getting late. The shops are getting closed.
I stare at one of the shops, a wedding dress catches my eyes.
It's very pretty, It was my dream wedding dress, I sigh and touch the glass, this wedding dress is amazing, it is sparkling as the light hits it.
I turned around and looked for the person who called my name, as I expected Richard was walking towards me, and he didn't look good, he looked very angry and worried.
"Richard!" I say weakly, and try to smile, but I fail.
Richard comes closer to me, and holds my shoulders, he is frowning, and I am sure he is very pissed, he will explode in any minute.
"What do you think you're think you're doing huh?" Richard snaps, as he shakes my shoulders "Walking the streets of Paris alone, without telling me? Are you this stupid? ''
"I am very sorry Richard, I didn't feel right" I whispered.
Richard snorted and let go of my shoulders, then he stared at the wedding dress I was looking at a while ago. He swallowed and looked away from the dress.
" Do you know how much Damon was worried about you? How much I was worried about?"
Richard exclaimed as he stared back at me, the way he stared at me, was very strange.
"Don't you ever-"
I didn't let Richard finish what he said, and hugged him tight, he was surprised but after a few seconds he put his arms around my shoulders, since he was taller than me I was hugging his waist, like my life depended on it.
And I cried into his shirt, he rubbed my back and whispered soothing words in my ear.
"Let's go home" Richard said and kissed my forehead.ns 22.214.171.124da2
