"You're right Nortia." I said and got out of the room.
There's no one in the whole world that can get under my skin as she can. That woman is so complicated. Am i stupid for not get away from her? I know her since she was seven years old i was 10 she says i helped her but she has no idea. She was the one who helped me, i was so lost, i ran a away from home from my mother and father constantly beatings, and in that day we found each other my father, the person who was supposed to be a role model, a hero in my eyes tried to kill me.
After wondering the streets alone for a few hours my thoughts were so dark, the only thing in my mind was 'if my parents don't want me what's the point of being alive?' In my ten years of life I didn't remember the time where they cared for me. I walked for hours thinking of different ways to kill myself, that's when i found a cliff. I was so close to the edge when a soft voice talked.
"Please don't do it." I looked back looking for the owner of that voice and i saw a little girl coming from behind a tree.
"Go away." I said.
"No, come with me we can stay together " she said.
"Why do you want to stay with me? No one wants me."
"That's not true, we can be friends and stay with each other."
"You will be better without me."
"Why are you here?" She asked getting close to me.
"I'm all alone."
"You don't have to be anymore, if you stay with me."
"Why are you here?" I asked.
"I'm all alone too." And that's when i realized that we were both lost and alone.
"Where do you live?" I asked.
"I don't have a house, but you can stay with my cardboards." She said with a big smile on her little face.
And since that day we are together, we grew up together, we did everything together, if it wasn't for her i wouldn't be here right now. We had a poor education but we learnt everything we could, we needed money so i started to fight, but i was just a ten year old slim boy i got hurt a lot, so she decided to get into fights too, i was against it but once she decides something is impossible to change her mind, very slowly we started to make a life for both of us and meanwhile the others came to the picture. Then we became teenagers and with that both of us got curious about a lot of things specially, sexuality.
We were each others firsts and i never been with anyone else, that's why it hurt when she said that. We always said we don't do feelings or relationships but i thought we had something going on between the two of us. I think I might love her, i mean i don't want any other girl, i can't even look to another, the thought of Nortia being with someone else makes my blood boil. To me she's the best woman on the face of the earth, she's beautiful, kind, smart, calm but deadly.
When you see a person that way isn't that called love?
I've been in this bar for a couple of hours now and she's still on my mind, even drunk she's all i think about. I think maybe it's time to go back to the hotel. Stumbling a little i made may way back, the room was dark but with the light from the hallway before i closed the door I could see Nortia in bed, sleeping. I tried to close the door silently but failed.
"You're back." Nortia said.
"You k-know someth-thing Nortia? We've been fucking for a longggg time and i never been with any other girl but shhh that's a secret." I'm so drunk!
"Are you drunk?"
"Me? Never! B-But listen as i was saying we have been fucking for so long now, but to-today when you left you left me worrieddd and when you came back and you said a mean thing to me. You're fucking with my head Nortia and I don't think i like that."
"Saulo I didn't meant to say that."
"No no no it's okay you were r-right. We don't own explanations to each other, after all we are just fuck buddies." Even though i said those words i feel like I'm not just her fuck buddy.
"Saulo i-" She started to say something but i talked before her.
"Yeah, this shit is complicated." That's exactly how i feel that everything is so fucking complicated, why couldn't we be just two normal persons who don't have a problem talking about fellings?
The next day i woke up with a headache, that's what i deserve for drinking to forget my problems. It didn't work anyway, I remember everything even when i got to the room. Stupid Saulo! I got up from the caoch and notice that Nortia was already gone. Now she doesn't even want my company. Just to be sure she's safe i called the others to see if they knew where she was. First Theo and Mila and they didn't knew anything and then i called Lara.
"Lara do you know where Nortia is?"
"She sent me a text earlier saying she had to take care of some business, is everything okay?"
"I hope so we'll talk soon." I said and hung up.
I went to the bathroom took a shower to get the smell of alcohol off of me, then i got dressed and still nothing of Nortia. I decided to text her, luckily she answered back saying she's at the beach and we'll talk later. Good because o think we really need to talk, but should i tell her how i feel?
Hours passed and i was laid in bed watching tv, when suddenly the door of the room is flung open and Nortia came in with the most serious face I ever seen. She didn't even stoped she was straight to the bathroom i heard her locking the door and the shower running, i waited a few minutes but nothing, I'm starting to get worried. I got out of the bed and knocked the door, nothing, no answer, nothing I could only hear the water running.
I called for her and knocked for about twenty minutes and i was starting to get frustrated. But before i could act my phone started ringing, i looked the name of the caller and saw it was Dante Rossi so I answered.
"Saulo is Nortia with you?" He asked before i could say anything else.
"Yes, she's in the shower so she can't talk, want me to tell her to call you?"
"No, that's fine i just wanted to know if she was okay, talk to you soon." He said and hung up. Alright that's it the door is going down.
"I swear to God Nortia if you don't open this door right now i will kick it down." I shouted one last time, when i was getting ready to kick the door, i saw it opening and Nortia came out with a towel around her and her hair dripping. She went to the bed and sat there without saying a word.
"Why did i get a phone call from Dante Rossi asking for you?" I asked and what she said next shocked me.
"They are my parents."
"What? how do you know?"
"DNA test." That's what she been doing lately? Why couldn't she talk to me or any of the others?
"When did you did all of this? Why didn't you said anything?"
"Because i wanted to be sure before saying anything."
"I'm so happy for you Tia, you finally found your family." And i really am, we've been looking for them for ao long.
"What if they don't like me Saulo? You know all the things i did all this years." I know what she's talking about, we've killed, robbed, the list goes on and on. But it's impossible not to like her.
"Nortia they will love you no matter what they are your family, and they are in the mafia, for sure they aren't saints." I said and hugged her, she was shivering and freezing cold.
"You're freezing cold Nortia, let me get some clothes." I said and got up.
I gave her some clothes and she went to the bathroom, while she was there i heard a knock on the door and got up from the bed and when I opened no one was there but on the floor were roses with a card with Nortia name on it i picked it up from the floor. She came out of the badroom and I turned to her.
"This came for you." Just thinking that maybe she's seeing someone else makes me uncomfortable.
"That must be a mistake." She said taking the card from my hands, she opened and started reading out loud.
"Roses are red
Violets are blue
Don't get to comfortable
I'm coming for you."
I will take you from them again.
Your future husband.
Future husband? What?
"Garbage, please." She said giving me the card back.
"Do you have any idea who might this be?"
"No." I could see she was deep in thought. Going next to the trash can i threw the card and roses away.
"Anyway what are you going to do about you're family?"
"I don't know, i ran from them." She what?
"Maybe you should go back there."
"No, not tonight please. Let's just go out, i don't want to think tonight."
"If is that really what you want, I'll get the others, do you want to tell them the news?"
"You can tell them. I going to get ready, then we are going to get dinner and to some club." She said and i went to call the others, i went to their rooms and told everything to them, everyone got excited but when i said to not make a big deal of it because of Nortia they got worried.
"But is she okay?" Mila asked.
"I really don't know, but she said she didn't want to think about anything tonight and that she wanted to go out. Maybe she's a little overwhelmed."
"Well if my girl wants to go out, we are going to go. Let's get ready." Lara said. I went back to my room and waited for Nortia. With all of this I didn't even had the chance to talk to her, and by the looks of it I don't think she has patience to this right know, i think I'm going to talk with her tomorrow.
She got out of the bathroom more beautiful than ever, the black dress showed her perfect curbs and the heels made her legs look longer and sexier, I couldn't take my eyes off of her. And if I couldn't i knew others would do the same.
We made our way down to wait for the others, they congratulated her for finding her parents. We went to eat and next to a club nearby, the night is going great and i think all of us are having a good time, this feel like old times when we had fun every day, but then came the gang and mafia and we kinda forget about this a little.
We were in the club everyone was drinking specially Nortia, she was having shot after shot, i just drank three, I didn't want to repeat last night. The girls went dancing and after them was Theo I stayed in the booth seeing the girls dancing, not the girls, Nortia. She was having a good time but after a while I noticed a guy dancing with her, i wanted to kill the fucker but I couldn't because if she didn't pushed him away was because she was liking to be with him, but then they were kissing that I couldn't watch i went to the dance floor, ripped the guy away from her and started to punch him i was blind with anger. When he was unconscious I grabbed her hand and took her outside.
"Why were you kissing that guy?" I shouted at her.
"I didn't kissed him he-" She tried to say.
"It wasn't what i saw."
"Why do you care any way?"
"I care because..." I started to say but the words wouldn't come out.
"We are just fuck buddies right?" She asked sarcastically. Why did she have to say it that way? I took a few deep breath and said calmly.
"I care because i love you Nortia." She didn't said a word intead she torned her back to me and started vomiting, when she was finished she turned to me, cleaning her mouth with the back of her hand and said.
"You what?" So i said it again and I never felt so free.
"I love you." I expected laugh, tears or any kind of emotion but intead she passed out.
Great i scared her so much she blacked out!
