Stuck In the Moment
“I wish we had another time...”
“I wish we had another place...”
“But everything we have is stuck in the moment.”
“Could you be any slower?”
“It's not my fault you walk fast.” He ignored my annoyed tone, that sweet smile that I had fallen in love with spread on his soft lips. Soft lips that where tempting me to close the gap between the two of us.
“I'm sorry,” he apologized softly, his brown eyes looking deeply into mine. His hands took mine; I stepped over towards him. With his forehead resting on mine, I wished for the moment to last forever. For once, I felt like time was on our side. Only it wasn't. Since the beginning – like always – time was against us.
“We've got a flight we can't miss...” he whispered. He reached over to pull away that incessant bang that always covered my sight. His fingers gently brushed my hair behind my ear. Weeks ago he would have never dared to show this side of himself. This new 'him' was strange; this new 'him' and I against the world...
He took the initiative to close the unnecessary distance between us, his warm lips on my own. It was a tender kiss, warm and pure. Unlike anything I had ever felt before. Unlike anything I would ever feel again...
I pulled him closer, my heart beating in a newfound panic. Deep in my heart I felt a rush of panic. I refused to lose him. His arms that wrapped around my small frame – frail body that had missed him – reassured me that everything would be alright. His kiss, once pure and gentle – now passionate and liberated – reassured me that everything would be fine. I should have known better...
“Come on...” Guiding me through the indoor parking garage, the bright lights overhead created somber shadows in the gray walls. He muttered a license plate to himself, snapping his fingers when he found the black BMW. He opened the trunk of the car dropping both our bags – one for each – taking out his cellphone to make a call. “Aubrey...I owe you one man.”
I could hear Aubrey telling him that it had been 'Nothing'. Taking the passenger seat, I closed my eyes as I let the quiet peace to calm my heart.
In a few hours, it would be Happily Ever After for the both of us...
