As soon as I heard the click on the lock my hands got clammy and I felt my heart start flying. I opened my mouth to let out another scream when his other hand wrapped around my face and covered my mouth muffling my scream.
“For God’s sake, do you want to get me caught?”
I felt as though everything around me all stopped. I knew that voice. I knew that voice and I knew the person who the voice belonged to. Suddenly I could really feel the hand around my wrist and face. I knew those hands too, and I knew the slight tingle that was running up and down my arm just because of his simple touch.
I reached my free hand up and gently pulled his hand away from my mouth. For a second I thought that he wasn’t going to let me but then he wrapped his fingers in mine and pulled me around so that I was facing him.
I felt my heart sink.
For one second I let my hopes get the best of me. I started to think that maybe Daniel really was alive and that he was here to help me.
Even though it wasn’t Daniel I still felt my knees buckle because it was Demtri. I didn’t know why he was here or want he was planning on doing but the fact that I was seeing a familiar face right in front of me was enough to cause my body to go in shock.
“Oh my god.” He groaned and wrapped his arms around me crushing me to his chest. After a second I wrapped my arms around him too letting my head fall into his chest in exhaustion. I could feel his breath going down my neck and he rubbed his hands up and down my back.
“I thought I wouldn’t ever see you again.” He whispered hoarsely.
Suddenly I was a little confused. I was still glad that he was here but I didn’t understand why he would be this glad that I was here.
“Demtri,” I sighed pushing back on his chest, “There’s no one around you don’t have to pretend.”
His eyes clouded over with hurt as I pushed him back, “What do you mean?” He asked, his eyes never leaving mine making me squirm slightly.
“I’m really glad you’re here, you have no idea but I don’t understand why you would be that excited. I mean we weren’t in love before so I don’t know why you are acting like we are now, especially when no one else is here but us.”
He closed his eyes for a second and let out a soft laugh. When he opened them back up, he watched his hand as it pushed back a loch of my hair and went lower to cup my cheek. He finally raised his eyes to meet mine with so many unnamed emotions swimming in their depths I was momentarily shocked. “I forgot you don’t know.” He murmured softly.
I dropped my eyes and looked down breaking the connection they held and asked, “What don’t I know.”
There was a moment of complete silence so I finally looked up to see why he wasn’t telling me. His eyes were wide and scared, “I-“ He stuttered.
“Well?” I asked impatiently.
“Gosh, this was so much harder when it just happened.” He let his hand drop from my cheek and ran it through his short hair instead.
“When what just happened?” I snapped getting worried. A thousand thoughts where running through my head about what it could be that was causing Demtri to look so worried. There were so many things that could have happened and almost all of them where not good.
He looked at me again with a lost look in his eyes making my heart pick up speed, “Please don’t freak out and just listen to me ok?” He didn’t wait for me to respond before he started stuttering again, “umm- well I…”
“Just spit it out Demtri.” I whispered sharply losing the last shred of patience that I had.
Not a second had passed before he spoke, “I am Daniel.”
The words ripped out of his mouth and traveled down to my heart that felt like it was being ripped out. An image of his broken and bloody face immediately sprung into my mind. I felt a mixture of sadness; horror and humiliation rush through me. Sadness because his death was brought back into my thoughts, horror because here was Demtri saying that he was Daniel, and humiliation because Demtri was just making fun of me, like everyone else probably was, for something that had been so important to me.
