------------NALA'S P.O.V------------

We stood there, not able to move or look away from each other. He took a few steps closer as I took steps back.

"You're still wearing my shirt" he said as a small smile appeared in his face.

I kept walking backwards until the bottom of the fountain stopped me. My heart beat had increased just like it always did when I was around him and my palms were sweating. He stopped infront of me and licked his lips. He extended his hand and removed the strands of hair that were covering parts of my face. His eyes never left mine and it felt like everything in the world had stopped. I tried speaking but no noise or words came from my mouth.

"Please leave me alone." I managed to say as my eyes started filling with tears.

His eyes started shining as he looked down at the ground.

"I can't do that." He said as his eyes met mine again. "I can't leave you alone and I don't think I ever will" he said as his hand reached for mine.

I stood there not sure of what to say. He was now holding my right hand and his face was only inches away from mine. I could hear his breaths and I was sure he could hear mine. He got closer but then stopped.

"I can't stay away" he whispered.

He moved closer to me as his lips gently touched mine. Before I could respond, sirens were heard all over the park.

"S***" he said as he separated himself from me.

He stood infront of me, blocking my view of what was happening. His grip on my hand tightened as if he was afraid I would run away.

"We have to go" he said in a desperate tone.

He started running, his hand still holding mine, and I followed. I didn't know why I was going with him but I knew I couldn't just stay there. We ran and ran until we stopped in an empty alley. The sirens where no longer heard, the only sound was our gasping and panting after running so long. I let go of his hand and leaned against the wall. I cleaned the few beats of sweet on my forhead with the sleeves of my, Bruno's, shirt and just stayed quiet. He was now leaned against the wall aswell and he shook his hair. I let myself fall on the floor and just sat there. I hugged my knees and burried my head in my legs. I slowly felt the tears fall from my eyes to my jeans. I tried stopping them but they were stronger. I eventually looked up and saw Bruno on his knees next to me. His eyes were directed towards the ground and his breathing had increased, unlike mine.

"I don't want to hurt you." He started. "The last thing I want to do is hurt you or scare you... But I can't let you go." He said, each word more silent than the first one.

He looked at me and I noticed that his eyes had become much lighter than a couple minutes ago. His facial expression showed sadness and the way he moved his hands made it easy to see that he was not used to saying things like this. Tears were still streaming down my face and my breathing had become faster than ever. Bruno slowly extended his hand and wiped the fallen tears. He gently grabbed the side of my face and brought it closer to him. He leaned closer and just like before, our faces were inches away. He leaned his forehead against mine and closed his eyes. His other hand was now on the other side of my face and his breathing was back to normal. I looked at the man infront of me and closed my eyes aswell before more tears could fall. We opened our eyes and sat there, looking at each other for a minute or so when he finally got closer and kissed me. It was in that moment when I realized how much I wanted this to happen. From the first time I laid eyes on him to right now. I thought it was impossible to fall inlove with a stranger, but he proved me wrong. The way our lips connected made me feel like we were meant to be. It felt so wrong to kiss him but at the same time made me feel amazing. We slowly pulled away from each other and he removed his hand from my face. He looked at me before giving me a small smile.

"You're too precious to loose."

With that said, we stood up from the hard floor and leaned against the wall oncemore. We looked at each other and I soon felt Bruno's hand on mine again.

"Let's go." I said, finally giving into him and the fact that I was inlove with the stranger named Bruno Mars.
