I sat in the back of the classroom, not even bothering to rise from my chair when the bell rang throughout the school. Xavier's eyes were firmly planted on mine, when the familiar bell rang out.
Chatter filled the room and all students rose and made their way to exist. I however remained seated because I knew Xavier would of asked me to stay behind and instead of fighting it, I just expected it.
Alec didn't come with me to school today, he actually had to go somewhere with his dad and I didn't want to be that whiney chick that couldn't do anything without her boyfriend. Really I should be able to go to school without him having to hold my hand.
Once the last student left the room, Xavier closed the door behind them. Sealing myself and him in the room, I was now relying on my will power to stop myself from doing something stupid.
"Chloe." Xavier's voice was so soft and tender; he said my name like it was a precious gem. I was taken back by he's tone.
"Xavier." I closed my textbook and pushed it to the side. "I am guessing you would want to speak to me?"
"We haven't talked since, well that night." Xavier looked uncomfortable, as if he was raw on show for all. I was nearly fooled by his act, as if Xavier could show his real emotions.
"How is Emily and the boys?" I smiled confidently, "Dad informed they were back in your care."
That's it Chloe, just keep remembering he's wife and family. He could speak to me as soft as he wanted but at the end of the day he wasn't mine.
"Yeah, the boys keep asking when you are stopping by." Xavier crossed his arms, and his eyes dropped to the ground. "Emily's fine."
"Good," I nodded my head, and the pain was ripping me in half. "I'm leaving once the school year finishes."
"You've been happy the last few days." Xavier's voice was low, it wasn't a question it was a statement. "I'm guessing someone has been influencing that."
I thought over the last few days, Alec and I had spent each day together, Alec had made it his mission to entertain me. We went rock climbing the day before yesterday, and yesterday we went ice skating and much to his amusement I actually was better at surfing then skating.
"Yeah, I've been hanging out with Alec. Though it does make me wonder how you would know that." I asked, while frowning, studying Xavier's face, as his eyes stared down at the floor.
"I feel your emotions." Xavier shrugged his shoulders, "I have been able to since your birthday."
"WHAT!" my voice raised a little higher, "That's not right, you can't.."
"I can, I don't know why." Xavier cut me off and looked up to meet my eyes. "Though over the last few days, it has gotten weaker. The bond is..."
"Not as strong?" I finished his sentence, "Well that is how it is meant to be."
"No it's not." Xavier's eyes narrowed "I'm not meant to be losing you, I'm meant to be keeping you."
"Xavier, are you going to leave Emily?"
"I can't." he stuttered the answer, as if he was torn between his answer.
"You won't" I corrected him, not angy at him or hurt by his decision. I was coming to terms with the fact we weren't going to be together. "You don't want to."
"I love you Chloe." Xavier's eye lids filled with tears, and he meant it.
I rose from my chair, and went to stand in front of him. With a shaky hand, I cupped his cheek. "I love you too. How can I not, you're my mate."
Xavier reached out and took my other hand. "I'm stopping you from being free. But it is so hard to let you go." A small tear slid down from his right eye, and I wiped it away from with my thumb.
"It's not easy." I admitted, speaking the truth while fighting my own tears. "But you have two beautiful boys."
Xavier's cold eyes, were locked with mine and all I saw was love and hurt. "I thought I could keep you."
"You love Emily. Even if you don't think you do." As I blinked the tears slid down my cheeks. "I know you love me too."
