This chapter is not dedicated to just one person. This chapter is dedicated to all of you, who have read it, liked it and enjoyed it. When I started imagine this story about two years ago it was just for my own satisfaction, a way to escape reality. However, when I discovered this site and started reading other stories I started thinking "What if I should do the same?" and I started writing my story down, a story I only had in my head. Little did I know 2 years ago that my story would turn out this good and people would actually enjoy it as much as I did. So this story is not dedicated to just someone, it is dedicated to all of you. Thank you for believing in me and my story!

Btw, 25K! You guys are awesome!! And to thank you, here is the chapter you've all been waiting for. This chapter will mostly contain smut and it's pretty graphic smut as well so for those of you who don't like reading those kinds of things should avoid that part of the chapter. You have been warned!

Candice POV

I turned around to see who it was and there he stood already drenched from the rain, Eric. He walked closer while I just stood there staring at him hoping that my eyes weren't red and puffy from all the crying. It only took a few strides for him to reach me and as he looked upon me I could see he was worried yet relived that he had found me unharmed. He cupped my cheeks as he looked at me.

"I've been looking everywhere for you." Eric said, letting out a heavy sign.

"You have?"

"Yes, ever since you stormed out of the simulation room."

"Oh yeah sorry about that, it just got too much and I wanted some time alone."

"Do you have any idea how long you've been up here?"


"7 hours."

"7 hours? And you didn't find me before now?"

"I guess I never thought of checking the roof and I went back to the apartment for a while in case you would show up."

"I'm sorry that you had to look for me."

"Don't be sorry love, all that matter is that I have found you and you are fine."

"So you are not mad?"

"No. Not at all, but why don't we go inside and get you dry and warm okay? I'll cook dinner while you shower and put on some new clothes."

"That sounds nice." Eric smiled and took my hand in his. His hand was warm despite the cold rain and it felt good to hold him.

We entered the compound and walked down the staircase and then went straight home to the apartment. Eric held my hand all the way home and to my surprise no one who walked past us on our way there seemed to noticed or care, they were probably used to us being close.

As we arrived at the apartment Eric let me in first before he closed the door behind him and turned to me once again. He cupped my head in his hands and looked at me with worry in his eyes.

"Are you okay?" I reached up to place my hands on his' and looked up at him.

"No but I will be." He leaned down and kissed my forehead before letting go and walked to the kitchen but not before turning his head towards me and nodded towards the bedroom, silently telling me to take a shower.

I signed before going into the bedroom to collect some clean and dry clothes before going into the bathroom to take a long and hot shower. I took my time, thinking that the hot water could help me take my mind of things but sadly it didn't.
