I looked at the sky to realize how late it really was.
Probably around 8:00 or 9:00 at night.
My keys jammed into the keyhole, turning to the right, as it squeaked open.
My eyes furrowed in deep confusion when I darkness engulfed me.
What the hell?
Why are all the lights off?
My hands traveled to the switch next to the front door, but when I flicked it up, nothing happened.
My heart skipped a beat when a hand cupped my face, and I felt something soft on my right cheek.
But when I turned to look if someone was there, no one was.
Was this a sick joke?!
I swear to God, if someone is trying to kidnap me or something, I will fvcking make sure to claw them dead.
“Hello?” I called out, expecting an answer.
“Kyle! Kyle, if this is a joke then I don’t ca….”
One by one, small tints of flames lit up the room, making me stop what I was saying.
A small gasp escaped my lips and my eyes wandered everywhere around me.
The candles continued to light up until it stopped at the opposite side of the house.
This looked like it took a thousand days!
But, only a matter of time went by until I fully saw kyle standing across from me, his hands scratching the back of his neck in nervousness, his teeth biting his bottom lip.
“Kiara, I’m I’m sorry.” He said, his voice cracking at the end with a sigh.
I ignored his apology since my voice was hitched and I felt like the air was being sucked out of me.
“Wh…what i…is all of th…this?” I squeaked, quietly, feeling hot tears gather in the corner of my eyes.
“Ho…how long d…di ”
“That’s not important, love.” He chuckled softly, walking over to me.
I tried hard to not cry, and so far, I was doing good.
Though, for some reason, I knew he noticed my glassy, watery eyes.
“Shut up, kiara.” He shook his head, cupping my cheek.
“You don’t fvcking understand that you always talk so much and it’s so annoying, but at the same time, it’s so tempting.”
“What do yo….. ”
“There you go again.” He threw his hands in the air in frustration.
“Kiara I….I just can’t do this.”
My heart dropped.
I thought he meant he was trying to get out of my life.
“I can’t stand it.”
“I don’t ge… ” I flinched as Kyle cut me off again.
“There you go again! You are still talking. Can you just, just be quiet for the next few minutes okay?”
I nodded, silently, feeling the lump in my throat.
“I meant I can’t stand being away from you. A…And the way I-I have been hurting you these past fe…few we…weeks. And, realizing that yo…you don’t love me back is what hurts the most. You don’t get it. I’m just so madly in love with you and I cannot help but think about you all the fvcking time!”
