Finger Tips

Luke POV

I could see it in her eyes, she wanted to say something but her lips seem as shut as the door in her heart. 

Her laughter and smile has always been painted in the back of my head. 

I missed her so much, but there seems to a barrier, a wall, between the two of us. 

A wall that was never been there before 

I have tons of question to ask her.. 

How's her sleep? 

Why did she lost weight? 

Have she been eating right?

Does that bastard treating her right? 

How's his family?

Does she also missed me? 

Did she forgot about me already?

How did we ended up this way? 

Why did I let her slipped from my finger tips? 

Just... why Scar? 


"Luke?" she said in a mellow voice as she continued to mix her coffee, she's been doing it for almost 20 minutes. 

"Yes?" I said as I put on a smile and drastically failed.

"Do you feel it too?" 

What? Feel what. exactly..? 

"Feel it? That?" I said and raise one eyebrow. 

"Yes, dummy.."as she exhale "..thought Im just the only one" 

"I..me too Princess" glad she's feeling the emptiness as well as I do 

"This is quite problematic, there's people here, I just cant burst it out" she said as she stirred her coffee faster, spilling a bit on the side. 

"Don't worry let me start" I said in a mellow voice and her eyes raise up to meet mine 

This is it Luke. No turning back now. 

"Sc.. um. Red, I like you too, I thought I'm the only one who feels this way, the marriage thing with the Del Valle guy tips me off  every f*cking time, Im sure you're doing this for your clan and stuff but I really like you and I understand .." I rant about it, with even inhaling, my heart beats faster, sweat is dripping in my chest. As she stared at me like a-deer-on- a-head-lights. 

"..Luke? what are you saying?" 

"You asked if I feel it, I said yes, I like you too" 

"Luke that was not what I was talking about" 

"Wha..but? you said? Princess?" 

"I was talking about those guys, in the back, they're staring at us since we got here. That's what Im talking about. Im sorry" 

"Oh." 

"Umm.. sorry Lucas, Im truly am, I di.." she tried to say as she pity me

"Its fine, I just missed you too much, I was your Knight remember..." I said, stood up and kissed her forehead "..was" 


Scarlett's POV


"Sc.. um. Red, I like you too, I thought I'm the only one who feels this way, the marriage thing with the Del Valle guy tips me off every f*cking time, Im sure you're doing this for your clan and stuff but I really like you and I understand .." He said without even lifting his eyes away from me 

Luke. Stop. Please. 

"..Luke? what are you saying?" as I said in a croaky voice. This is not how its suppose to be. This is not right

"You asked if I feel it, I said yes, I like you too" 

I like you 

"Luke that was not what I was talking about"

I really like you

"Wha..but? you said? Princess?"

You've been my crush since we're young ..

"I was talking about those guys, in the back, they're staring at us since we got here. That's what Im talking about. Im sorry"

Luke.

"Oh."

This is killing me.

"Umm.. sorry Lucas, Im truly am, I di.." she tried to say as she pity me

Im really sorry 

"Its fine, I just missed you too much, I was your Knight remember..." I said, stood up and kissed her forehead "..was" 

You still are and will always be. 

"See you next time Red" he said as he walks away. The memory of his back scripted in my head. 

Don't go.


I froze. In the moment everything seems to be stuck in time, everything but him. All I could see is him, walking away.

As I let him slip from my finger tips. 

Then I feel a sudden jolt in my arms pulling me back to my reality

A rush of crimson liquid slips down from my arm down to hands.

"Shit" I quickly ducked down and find my gun, gunshots were all I heard as I hid behind the post near our table. 

I look for my shooter as he tries to put me down with his bullets. I shot a couple of bullets aiming for him, then I shot someone in torso, another man in his legs and feet, enabling him to walk. The third shooter has ran away. 

Then I thought of Luke. I ran outside dodging the broken furniture and decors now on the floor with shards of broken glass.

"Red, are you alright?" 

"Yes I am" 

'Your shot"

"Is it that obvious? 

Then I saw a smirk on his face. 

"I think I killed someone" he said and pointed a man lying on the side of a road, 3 bullet went through his body while the other 2 was stuck on his leg and upper torso.

"yea, I think" 

I pulled out my phone and dialed a number. Luke's curious look can obviously be seen. 

"Who are you calling.."he said as he peeks at the phone screen "..cops?" 

"Im calling Vincent .." shit I shouldnt have said that "..and Kevin" 

"Oh okay? I should get going Scar, nice seeing you again" he said as he gave a goodbye-hug. With Luke's warmth my mouth suddenly refused to speak.

"Call me if your phone isnt too busy calling your fiance" 

I cant believed it but, those words sting.  

It stings much, much more that the wound I had with that bullet. 

I just stare at his car as it goes unto the light-lit horizon of the city. When I finally saw his car fades away, I sent him a message and stare at my phone for his reply

 but he just never did.
