“Alesxander…” I said again only in a whisper. He was here, really here… this was really him! It’s been 4 years…4 long and dreadful years since I last saw him. I used to come to these parties only in hope that he would attend. But I soon gave up hope. I soon found out there was no point in me trying.
My heart started to pound as I looked him over. He was the same old Alex I remember the brown hair, soft blue eyes his skin bronzed from the amount of sun in Los Angelos. The grey designer grey suit he wore defined every muscle.
“It’s been awhile”
“It has” I replied standing up and slipping my feet back into the heels
“How have you been Tori?”
“I’m been good how about you Alex? When the last time we saw each other the end of 8th grade?”
“America is lovely can’t get enough of the heat. Canada is just too cold for me and ya! I think so”
I titled my head a little and laughed
As long as I can remember Alex has hated the cold winter. He has changed much in the past 4 years. And that’s what worried me.
I loved this man. I knew I did I fell for him after only speaking to him for a couple of moments. But I knew he would never feel what I feel and never want me as I want him.
It broke my heart to see him with other woman to see him laugh and have fun. I was only a kid in his eyes. Even though Alex and me are the same age he only sees me as a child. He’s best friend with Henry and that’s how we met.
Although both of them are complete opposites I was 8 years old when I first met Alex and I remember the day as if it was yesterday.
Henry had come over the same weekend I was over here at the estate. I wanted to play with the boys but Henry just pushed me down the hill into a huge mud puddle. No matter how hard I tried to get out I just kept slipping back in. It was Alex who came and helped me out.
I remembered all the times with Alex as a kid…
When I wanted to have tea parties Alex played with me.
When I wanted to play house Alex played with me.
When I turned 12 and got in trouble with my grandmother for something Henry framed me for it was Alex who took the blame.
When I was 14 and got head gear for my teeth and no one would take me to the school dance it was Alex who took me.
So of course a girl would fall for him he was nothing but a gentlemen from the moment I met him.
“You sure look different”
“Well it’s been what about 4 years? Since you last saw me course I changed” I said laughing
Alex opened his mouth to say something when he was interrupted.
“Alexsander there you are I was looking everywhere for you” Henry called as he approached Alex
The two hugged and said a few things back and forth before their attention was back on me.
“I see you two met”
“Yes” Alex said “It’s really been quite some time”
“Indeed” Henry agreed nodding his head a smirk forming on his face “You have missed quite a lot my friend”
“Have I now?” Alex asked raising an eyebrow at Henry
“Quite a lot” Henry confirmed his eyes not leaving me
“It’s not fair to leave a man in the dark”
“I agree Alexsander don’t your Tori? It’s only fair we tell him things”
Alexsander looked between the two of us his eyebrows raised but didn’t question.
“You know you haven’t been completely honest with people have you Tori?” Henry pressed
I knew what he was talking about.
He wanted to tell Alex about Chase and tell Chase about Alex.
But it’s not like neither would care. Maybe Chase since we supposedly dating now but I highly doubt Alex would.
“You need to shut the hell up man” I heard a voice say behind me before an arm went around my waist pulling me towards them.
I titled my head up to see Chase standing next to me.
Anger clearly on his face. I looked at him in shock I only saw 3 emoticon from Chase and anger was never one of them.
“What?” Henry asked taken back
“You heard me” Chase snapped “From the moment I got here I noticed all you ever did was pick and torment Tori if she has something to say to me or to anyone else she can say it on her own free will. You have no business in it and need to bud the hell out”
