I walked to the room. I couldn’t stop feeling hurt and I knew it was all my fault.
I could have showed him love right from the beginning, but I didn’t. And now, what do I expect?
I was so happy to hear mother talk about that trip, but was saddened almost immediately knowing it should be Celine not me.
I sat on the bed thinking about everything, and just one thing came into my mind.
“It’s better to let go of this contract.” I thought sighing.
I don’t want Stefan nor the institute anymore, I don’t want to pretend I don’t love Jace by acting like his girlfriend when he actually has one.
“I need to leave.” I thought as I stared into space. I looked at the days I have spent and then I saw it was just seven days.
“I guess it wasn’t meant to be fifteen after all.” I mumbled and just then a knock came on the door.
“Elena please let’s talk.” I heard Jace say from behind the door.
“Yes. We should talk.” I said approaching the door and opening it.
He wanted to talk, but I stopped him.
“I should go first.” I said shutting him up, and he nodded swallowing hard.
“So, I will take it from the scratch Jace. The main reason I came here was because I wanted to make Stefan regret leaving me. I loved him and that made me stupid. I wanted his attention, and the only way I could get it was make use of this contract. I agreed to move it, so it would convince him the more that I had moved on, whereas I hadn’t. All was because of him. But now, I don’t think I want it to be the way it was. I don’t think I want him anymore. I should have listened to Celine right from the beginning that he wasn’t worth it. But now I get it. I shouldn’t have done all this because of him or anything, but because I wanted it for myself. So that’s why I have made up my mind to leave the house, and stop the contract since I don’t need to prove anything to anyone anymore.” I said forcing a smile.
“And what of Mother?” He asked and I heaved.
“You can just tell her the same things you told her about the others. Anything that would seem real, and that would make her divert her love to Celine.” I said in a shaky voice.
“Elena are you leaving because you feel you owe nothing to Stefan, or because it pains you to see Celine and I together?” He asked and I shook my head speechlessly.
I wanted to lie but I couldn’t. The truth was painful but I couldn’t ignore it.
“Elena talk to me. Tell me you are leaving because it hurts you to see Celine and I together.” He stated again.
“Jace don’t make this harder than this. I can’t hurt my Friend and I agree I was stupid.” I said as my eyes became watery.
“Tell me Elena. Tell me it’s hurts you to see me love another instead of you!” He said again and I finally bursted into tears.
“Yes Jace! It hurts me because I didn’t realize my feelings before now. Because it’s too late and you are in love with someone else, and not just someone else but my Friend! And it’s annoying I can’t fight for it because she is my friend and it’s all my fault!” I yelled in tears staring at him.
We stared at each other and we couldn’t stop staring at each other. Suddenly he rushed up to me, held my head in his hand and kissed me deeply.
With passion and love. I could feel it.
I didn’t know what to think at that very moment because all I wanted was the kiss to continue.
My tears dropped on his face and he disengaged looking into my eyes.
“I love you Elena. I love you so much, and you can’t understand how much I do.” He said and I looked into his eye balls. My eyes moving left and right at his.
“You shouldn’t say that. You can’t be in love with Celine and I at the same time.” I said shaking my head.
“No. I am in love with only you. No one else.” He said and I furrowed my brows.
“But….” I said and he shook his head.
“Don’t say anything, nor ask for anything. Just let it go for this moment.” He whispered to my face and I nodded shutting my eyes. I have always wanted to kiss you without asking or suspecting if anyone was around.” He said and I held his hand.
“Me too Jace.” I said and he moved his mouth to me and kissed me again.
This time I wrapped my arms around his neck drawing him closer till there was no gap between the both of us.
“You are not going anywhere Elena.” He said against my lips, with my eyes still closed.
I kissed him back speechlessly and he pushed me against the wall as the kiss grew intense.
Suddenly he backed off and I opened my eyes.
“What’s wrong?” I asked breathing hard.
“I can’t force you to do what you don’t want to Elena. Don’t you think we are rushing things?” He asked.
“I should have rushed things the very first day I saw you, but I hesitated and now I am hurting. I won’t take anymore chances.” I said walking to him and pushing him on the bed.
I climbed over him and we began to kiss again.
