Chapter 54

My heartfelt as if it was going to burst as she stood up on her porch looking down at me as I stood a few steps down from her. The moonlight falling on her eyes, but even though the lack of light, I could still feel what was going on in her mind. Her eyes were reflecting her emotions, unlike those other days.

She was clear and pure like water, reflecting everything out. I had no doubt that I had been in love with her for a long time but it was that moment I had this feeling that she felt the same thing for me too. And it was really overwhelming for me too.

A few moments ago, we two were going with the flow and ended up kissing each other and perhaps both of us had the same thoughts of getting together on the bed, because of the heat of the moment but as soon as we came out of the car, things changed. It was as if the cold breeze of the night that hit us made us open our eyes and we both knew that we needed to stop.

I didn't want to do anything with her until and unless I told her what I had in my mind. She walked to her porch and stopped before me and turned to face me.

She looked hesitant but there was something in her eyes that told me that she was going through a hard time of her own and even though she didn't utter a single word, I understood.

I had many things in my mind. I had planned so many ways of proposing her and telling her how I felt but then again I had doubts in my mind if it would really mean anything. I wasted so many days and years just because I couldn't tell her what I felt for her.

Situations played a major role in our life where I found it totally impossible to admit my feelings for her, but I had have enough. I couldn't keep it inside me any longer. The more I saw her, the more overwhelming my emotions grew and I was done.

"We shou-"

"I love you," I told her without even taking a moment to think about it. I was done tolerating my emotions on my own. She should also know how I felt and it didn't matter if she returned my feelings with her own. I would give her time to think about me and wouldn't let her be, until and unless she gave me a chance.

Had I only hold her hand and pulled her to me and said it loud and clear to her when we were young. Probably, we would have been together or the things might have been different.

"What did you say?" she asked as her eyes grew wider and her face changed into a shocked look. But the corners of her eyes didn't go unnoticed by me. It was glistening.

"I said, I love you," I told her and made sure she saw everything that I felt for her through my eyes. I really hoped she did because I had no idea how to tell otherwise. My voice was surprisingly filled with confidence and determination.

"Ace you- I mean why?" she asked and that made me chuckle.

"Should we hold a reason for loving a person?" I asked and I marked as she clutched the jacket she had in her hand tight staring at my eyes probably wanting to see if I was being truthful. Lately, she had been truly like water. Her emotions and feelings reflected on her face and I was glad I was able to read them.

"I don't have a rose now or any gifts to have a good proposal but I want you to know that I really love you. I have always liked you and I have wanted to make you mine but I do understand this is really fast for you. I am not really expecting an answer for you but I am willing to wait. I will be waiting for your answer and I hope you see through me and understand my emotions," I said as I took a few steps and stood before her. This was the first-ever time, she moved back as I moved closer to her but it didn't stop me.

She looked flabbergasted and her eyes wide like a saucer as I leaned down and captured her mouth for a kiss pouring my emotions in the kiss, telling her how much it meant for me to have her near me. Although she stood there in shock but never really pushed me back. As I retreated, I chuckled as her reaction and put my hand on her head, ruffling her hair.

"Snap out of it already! You are making me embarrassed. Should you leave your mouth like that?" I said and immediately she closed her mouth like a fish. The tint of pink growing up her cheeks and she turned around and went in as I followed her and chuckled when she literally ran up the stairs towards her room.

Even though I wanted to follow her, I restrained myself from doing any stupidity and face her wrath. I knew she was flushed by my sudden express of my love but if I went any further then she would definitely punch me on my face and that would be the last thing I would ever want.

I knew her. She needed time and if I showed her patience then she would definitely be able to understand what I felt. I was again willing to wait for no matter how many days, months or years she took. She was Veronica Sullivan, the silent forest of my heart.


I really thought she would take some time and probably months to accept my feelings for her but never had I ever thought that she would show up before my room in her night suit looking in distress as she stared into my eyes as I asked her what she wanted.

It was already middle of the night and as I changed and got into the bed, there was a furious knock on my door and as I opened it, there she was in her black night cami dress and a sheer robe over it as her hair looked like a mess and she looked up at me seeming furious.

This woman just simply doesn't understand that I was already at that period of time where everything about her turned me on and her being before my room in a nightdress didn't help a cent percent.

"What do you want?" I asked and she narrowed her eyes.

"Revenge," she said as she pushed past me and got into my room and I looked at her back as she walked to the side of the bed and sat down.

"Excuse me?" I asked and she refused to look back at me.

"Revenge for what?"

"Do you seriously expect me to sleep after the stunt you just pulled? It is simply annoying to me that I'm unable to sleep while you sleep peacefully. So here I am. I am taking revenge. If I can't sleep then I won't let you sleep either," she said and all of a sudden made herself comfortable on the side of the bed as I gawked at her.

"Are you being serious? This doesn't make any sense at all," I told her and she simply chose to ignore me as I stood there waiting for her to answer me. As she didn't, I ended up closing the door and made my way to the other side of the bed.

"Whatever you mean by that," I said as I picked up a pillow and placed it in the middle of the king-sized bed. She refused to move and she faced the other side as I sat down.

"But just because you want to take revenge, don't expect me to sleep on the floor," I told her and she didn't utter a word.

As I waited for her to reply, she chose to stay quiet and refused to face me. So, I ended up slipping comfortably on the bed and closed my eyes for a mere second when all of a second I felt her getting closer and she removed the pillow between us as she wrapped her arm over my chest.

"Pervert!" I remarked but didn't open my eyes intentionally because I felt her growing stiff.

"Don't you dare open your eyes," she warned

"Just keep your mouth shut and let me sleep," she said and I wanted to laugh but stifled it and kept my hand above her and felt her moving up to me as she put her head over my chest and I wrapped my arms over her pulling her closer.

If I had known this was going to be like this then I would have told her earlier.
