Enjoy the chapter guys. It is not edited. Please excuse my mistakes.


"Trey, you really didn't have to do all of this as a thank you. Paying me was thank you enough, and you did that plus some." I said taking a seat at the restaurant table before Trey pushed the seat in for me. It's been a week since the Banquet and Trey's been doing things to thank me non stop. We've been out to lunch almost every day and he slipped a few extra thousand dollars in my check for the party. After constant nagging and telling Trey that he didn't need to do this, he promised to stop after tonight.

"I know, and I told you tonight would be the last of it. Just let me treat you." He said taking a seat across from me. I looked around at the extravagant decor of the restaurant and sighed. This place was really nice, and I felt a little wired with him courting me around all week like I didn't have a boyfriend.

"Well I appreciate it none the less." I said honestly. It was nice to have someone pay for a few meals every now and then, especially since Elliot wasn't here to do it. Speaking of Elliot, he still hadn't told me what was going on with him and his attitude lately was a little weird. He's been acting very standoffish

"You look like you've got something on your mind." Trey said and I sighed

"It's nothing crazy" I shrugged getting comfortable in the seat before flipping through the small menu that was on the table. I've never been here before, so I didn't know what to get and since the whole menu was in French, everything was foreign to me. I knew I would most likely end up asking Trey to order for me, something I always did when we were younger and I couldn't decide what I wanted.

"Tell me. You want me to order for you?" Trey asked reading my mind which caused me to smile little bit. I nodded before playing with the napkins that were laid out on the table. Though I felt a little uneasy about Trey treating me like this this week, I couldn't pretend that it didn't feel nice. Elliot used to take me out but it was never like this, and to be honest, once he got me, our dates just turned into spending time at his house. I didn't wanna downplay anything Elliot did, but this kind of treatment, this kind of attention, it felt good. It was new to me. "Alright I got you. But you gotta tell me what's wrong first"

"Fine." I sighed "it's Elliot. He's been acting pretty weird lately, like distant, and I'm not sure what's going on. He told me he had something to tell me the other day, but he won't tell me what."

"Well why is it bothering you so much?" Trey asked

"Because he sounded pretty serious. He's saying it's nothing but I just can't shake it. I have a really bad feeling about it for some reason."

"And you've talked to him about it?"

"Of course I have. I try to get it out of him every time we speak but he just doesn't tell me. I wanna believe that it's really nothing, but my guts telling me other wise, my gut is never wrong." I said

"When's the last time you got a feeling like this?" He asked and looked up at him hesitant to answer

"A feeling as strong as this?" I asked and he nodded "The time I found out you cheated on me." I said causing him to look down.

"Damn Nell, I'm sorry." He said and I shook my head

"Don't be sorry. It's not your fault. I just hope my gut is wrong for once. I don't wanna get hurt again." I said trying to hold back the tears but they seemed to escape anyway. I really tried to stay strong, but when it came to my heart, I couldn't take anymore pain. I just didn't wanna get hurt anymore.
