Chapter 13: Comfort

Luna’s POV:

“Have you gone crazy?! How can you even ask me to do such a thing!? You know that I could never do that, Elijah!”

I cried out in disbelief while gripping onto his chest!

My hands were trembling as I kept shaking Eli’s body back and forth in agonizing sorrow! He’s completely gone mad and I’m afraid of what he might do...

“I rather have you kill me...than have you ever hate me. Luna, you’re everything to me, the only thing that’s making me breathe right now. Ever since we were children, your kindness and tenderness pulled me out of this darkness that was swallowing my heart. And when I look back at those memories of us, I think I always loved you even when we were kids. So that’s why I could only ask you...to kill me. My life is yours to take...”

He said in a broken whisper, he then carefully took one of my trembling hands and placed it against his chest. I instantly panic once I felt his heartbeat, it was barely beating almost as if it could stop at any minute! So without even thinking, I quickly wrapped my arms around his neck, pulling him in a tight embrace. Is Eli really in this much pain, that even his heart is being affected? If so, it terrifies me...

“Then...tell me why? Why did you kiss that girl! Why did you lie to me...you said you weren’t going to that party, but you did...”

I said to him as I squeezed my arms around his neck even more. Trying my best to stop my tears from falling, I took in a heavy sigh as I felt Elijah snuggling himself between my breasts to comfort me...Hearing him inhale deeply, he released an unsettling sigh. Watching his shoulders drop-down, he loosened his embrace a bit before finally facing me...

“Please, let me explain what happened last night, everything was just a total misunderstanding...I need you to believe me.”

He responded in desperation while gazing into my eyes. But his intense stare only made me shift my sights away from him...

“Luna, why won’t you look at me?”

He asked worriedly, placing one of his big hands on my cheek, he gently caressed it as he pulled in closer to me...

“I can’t...look at you, because all I see is a cheater... and I’m just getting tired of crying because of you...”

“I understand...”

Elijah replied calmly, he then pulled us towards the mattress as we both laid against it. His embrace was strong, yet his voice trembled so weakly...I’ve never seen this side of him before.

“Luna, I won’t let you go until you let me finish what I have to say...”

He whispered into my ear as he closed any gap between us, feeling the warmth radiating from his body made me feel somewhat at ease. I’m not sure why that is, is it because I missed him comforting me? Moving my body closer to his, I let him know that I was ready to listen to whatever he had to say...

Hours began to pass, as I listened to every detail Eli had to tell me. Everything seems to make sense with how he was explaining it, however, we kept bickering back and forth as I tried to explain my situation of how I ended up being at the party...

I was starting to get frustrated by his stubborn attitude. I didn’t even wanna bring up the whole Ren confessing his feelings for me, that was only going to bring more problems. So it’s best If I leave that part out, that way Elijah doesn’t actually kill him. Though I know he would never do such a thing, right? I mean, yeah what I saw him do to Ren last night was awful and scary, but he wouldn’t take someone’s life...

“Hey, Eli...would you ever kill anyone?”

I don’t know what made my subconscious mind ask that, but for some reason...I just wanted to know what his answer would be? Of course, I’m expecting him to say no, but I would just like to be reassured...

“I know this is going off-topic of what we were discussing and it’s foolish of me to even be asking-”

“I would if it meant protecting the person I love.”

Elijah quickly responded, not even giving me a chance to finish my sentence. I was taken aback by his answer since that wasn’t what I was expecting him to say!

“Wait!? So were you serious when you said you would kill Ren?!”

I nervously asked him with a wary tone in my voice. Elijah didn’t say anything other than grabbing me closer and tightening his hold around my body. I soon felt my heart beginning to beat faster with uneasiness, I never want Eli to hurt anyone, let alone take someone’s life!

“Luna, I’m not a fucking serial killer or someone who likes hurting others, but I won’t think twice about doing something like that if it means keeping you out of harm’s way. I just want to make sure that you’re happy and safe when you’re with me...I just wish I had more time left...to do that.”

He explained while placing a light kiss on my forehead, but what he said grabbed my attention...

“What do you mean...more time left?”

I asked him in a confused stare...

“It’s nothing...Luna. Look, getting back to what I was saying earlier. I don’t like Ren near you, and I already told you that I don’t like him touching you either, it’s obvious that kid likes you! It pissed me off when I saw him holding you the way he did in front of your house! I know you said nothing happened between you two last night other than having him take you home, but just thinking about him being close to you...it just...”

As he gave out an annoying sigh, he forcefully brought his hands up and placed them on each side of my face!

“Luna, I’m sorry that I lied to you, I feel like a total piece of shit for doing that, but I feel more fucking horrible for what you saw. It was a complete misfortunate accident that wasn’t my fault! I wish you didn’t have to go through that pain because of me. I don’t even wanna know what I would’ve done if I saw you kissing some other guy!”

He continued to talk with tensity in his voice as he raised my head to look at me, I began to study his eyes in search of any disloyalty or any type of lie of what he just said. However, all I saw was sincerity, love, and sadness in those crystal blue eyes of his...

Slowly placing my hand against his chest. I pushed myself forward...leaving a light kiss on those soft lips of his. I could feel my cheeks becoming flushed as I slowly pulled away, I was able to get a good view of Elijah’s reaction as I looked at him in embarrassment. The way he looked at me was priceless that I couldn’t hold in my light laughter...

“Why are you looking at me like I did something weird?”

I giggled while placing my forehead against his...

“I just didn’t think you would ever kiss me again, let alone forgive me for what I put you through.”

He responded, still sounding in shock...

“Well, I accept your apology. It’s going to be hard for me to forget about what happened though, but now that I know the truth...I’m willing to forgive you. However! No more lies, Elijah. I mean it because next time I don’t know if I’ll be able to give you another chance.”

I explained to him in a strict-like matter.

Elijah then looked at me for a split second with a troubled look in his eyes. He then quickly shifted his gaze away right after, it’s as if he was wanting to tell me something important. Was there something else that he wasn’t telling me? No, I’m sure Elijah wouldn’t keep any dark secrets from me...

Seeing how Eli was having a hard time responding to my explanation, I finally decided to change the subject to something more lenient. Grabbing Elijah’s hand, I laced my fingers with his...

“Eli, your birthday is coming up this week...was there something you wanted to do?” I asked as I sat on his bed more comfortably.

“No... there’s nothing I want to do on that day, I just want you to be with me until the very end...of my birthday.”

He explained sounding a bit sad for some reason as he sat upright on the bed, he then pulled me on top of his lap. Gently resting his head on my shoulder, he wrapped his arms around me and began caressing my arm with his long fingers. I soon placed my head on top of his while running my fingers through his soft brown hair...

“Of course I’ll be there with you on your birthday, I’ll always be there for all your future birthdays to celebrate you getting old!”

I said jokingly, trying to cheer him up. But it looked like I just made it worse by how quiet he has gotten. Gripping his hold on me, he peered into my eyes...longing for something I couldn’t understand. Does he not like celebrating his birthday? Or maybe it’s the fact that he’ll be eighteen and I’ll still be minor? No, Elijah would never let the age gap get between our relationship...so what else could it be for him to seem so depressed?

“I love you...”

Eli suddenly whispered his sweet words to me, how I missed hearing him say that. I could feel his warm soothing breath pressing down against my neck, causing my body to shiver with delight...

“I love you too, Eli...you’ll tell me if something was bothering you, right?”

I asked in an anxious tone, Elijah then gave me a faint smile as he nodded his head. But all I saw was uneasiness in his eyes, I can’t do this anymore! I need to know what is bothering him...

“Eli! Stop lying to me already, I know that you’re not okay. You look at me with so much pain like you’re suffering! So...please...just tell me what’s on your mind?”

I raised my voice in concern as I gripped his shirt. Looking into his eyes...nothing seemed to change, all he did was bring his lips close to mine...

“There’s nothing wrong, trust me...I just...always want you by my side. But I feel like I’m becoming too greedy.”

He said while resting his forehead on my clavicle. It hurts knowing that he won’t tell me what’s wrong with him, I know when he’s telling the truth. I’ve known him for so long so it’s kind of a no-brainer when he’s being honest. I know I can’t force the truth out of him, but I hope and pray that he will tell me one day...

“Alright...I just get this inkling feeling that you’re hiding something from me, nevertheless, I’ll trust you. And I don’t think you’re greedy-”

Immediately silencing my words, I realized something very important!
