Chapter 45 - Michael

Later that day… Anastasia and I walk toward the beach since I decide to bring her to the beach, I do feel bad for her because Anastasia finally brings up about what happened to her, she could see I was so angry, she didn’t really like how much I was so angry…

We sit on the sand since I brought a blanket and our food, I told Anastasia that we would have lunch here…

Anastasia sees I sit down next to Anastasia as she smiles softly and she says, “I’m glad that I have you…”

“Me too babe.” I smile.

“How do you feel when I told you and my therapist about what happened to me?” Anastasia raises her eyebrows in confusion.

“To be honest?” I see Anastasia nodded as I sigh deeply and I say, “I was so angry… I was in pain…” I see Anastasia looks at me with a sad look and I say, “If Henry doesn’t kidnap, rape, and abuse you, I would be home with you and I would be fine with you.”

“I know…” Anastasia sighs deeply as she looks down on the blanket and she says, “I was so scared… I mean… I kept calling your name and I told Henry that you would come and save me… but when Henry died, I got sicker on my stomach… I cried for 4 days… I was weak when Henry abused me.”

“When I saw you have a lot of bruises on your body… I was very devastated like I didn’t really understand why the hell did Henry hurt my girl!” I sigh deeply and I say, “I really thought Henry kill you.”

Anastasia wince softly as she sighs deeply and she says in an honest voice, “Trust me… Henry did try to kill me, he abused me like many times, he wanted me to die so you would be with someone else.”

I sigh deeply as I turn around to the ocean, I see the ocean wave softly and I say, “You know… you won’t let me touch you, you had been crying, I mean…” I trail off as I close my eyes for a few second and I open my eyes and I say, “So, I just don’t know how to help you because you do get scared about being in a relationship and you do love me and I do love you too, but I know you’re really scared to show me of your body…”

Anastasia sighs deeply and she says, “Yeah… because I don’t want you to think I’m ugly to show my body.”

“Henry said that to you?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion and angrily.

“Yes…” Anastasia sighs deeply and she says, “He told me that you would leave me and you wouldn’t be with me… you shouldn’t have dated me.”

I close my eyes tightly as I sigh deeply and I feel like if Henry alive, I would kill him by myself because I can’t handle it about how Anastasia doing these, it broke my heart like why did he do that to my girl…

I open my eyes as I see Anastasia’s tears falling down on her cheeks and I say in a soft voice, “Babe…”

“I’m really sorry.”

“For what?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion.

“For what happened to me, if Henry did not kidnap me, it wouldn’t happen to me, Michael.”

“Is it because you’re scared that you wouldn’t be with me since Henry kidnapped you and hurt you?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion as she sees I nodded and I say, “Come here.” I see Anastasia scoots closer to me as she looks at me with a sad look and I continue to say, “You know when I met you for the first time at your job… you looked so beautiful, I wanted to get to know who you are…” I smile softly and I say, “You know I do care about you… you’re an amazing girlfriend… you had been helping me to go through with my mom’s death, you didn’t leave me… since I knew… my heart and gut tell me that I love you so much with all of my heart… I couldn’t imagine that you went through so much with Henry… but I know that I’m going help you to go through with a difficult time… because you’re not alone.”

Anastasia smiles softly as she nodded and she says, “I love you.”

“I love you too, can I kiss you?”

“Of course, you can kiss me.” Anastasia giggles softly.

I nodded as I lean toward her to kiss my beautiful girlfriend and I feel Anastasia’s lip crashes mine as I put my arms around her neck to pull her closer to me.

I missed it so much… we haven’t kiss like this for a while… I love her so much…


45 minutes later… we finished a make-out session, we are laying down on the blanket.

“So, when are we going to vacation?” Anastasia raises her eyebrows in confusion.

“Tomorrow.” I smile softly and I say, “We can go to Colorado.”

“Really?” Anastasia smiles big and she says, “I always want to go there.”

“Well… we can go tomorrow.” I smile big.

“Awesome! But for how long?”

“3 weeks, is it okay?”

“Hell yeah!”

Time for our vacation to start.
