At about 10 o'clock in the middle of Nathan kicking ass on a video game.

Destery strolled in.

"Ahoy my shipmate! And first wench!" He shouted.

Nathan dropped the controller and got in Desterys face.

"Where the hell have you been all day dude!!?" He asked, more like yelled.

"I was out for a little while? I had some stuff I needed to take care of." He stated.

"Well while you've been gone all day, Kaitlin has been going out of her mind thinking you left her! Dick move bro! You could have picked up your phone or shot a text her way! For god sakes she had a panic attack! And you weren't there!" He shouted.

Destery turned to look at me. Hurt in his eyes.

"It's no big deal. I'm gonna go to bed" I stated.

"No! Nate is right! I shouldn't have left! I should have been there for you! I'm so sorry Kaitlin I should have waited till you woke up!" He rushed to me. Kneeling down so he was eye level.

Tears threatened to fall. But I refuse to let them.

"Why..." Was all I could muster.

"I thought you'd be okay! I wasn't planning to be gone all day but the jeweler took forever!! I'm so sorry babe! Why didn't you tell me you have panic attacks?" He asked.

"Why were you with a jeweler?" I asked.

His face reddened. I guess he let that part slip.

"Well, I wanted to get you something special. And I thought what do girls like the most? Jewelry." He explained.

My eyes widened. He spent all day, out. To get me something special?

That still doesn't explain why he didn't call!

"Why didn't you call?" Nate asked. Reading my mind.

"Let's just say I won't be getting it back. Gotta love getting pick pocketed." He said.

"You could have found a phone to call and tell us you were ok!" Nathan shouted.

I winced at all the yelling. I had to much of a headache to put up with all this. All I know is that Destery is safe. And he came back to me.

He turned to face me. And I grabbed the back of his neck and kissed him with all the pain and anger I had felt throughout the day.

"Oh god! Get a room please! If I had anything in my stomach id barf." Nathan complained.

It made me laugh into the kiss. Thus ending it.

"So I take it you forgive me?" Destery asked.

I nodded and smiled.

He kissed me this time. We pulled away and I stared into his eyes.

He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small velvet box.

I gasped.

He opened it to reveal a beautiful heart shaped pendant with our initials along with a date on it.

"It's the day I realized i loved you!" He explained.

But wait. That's the same date I moved in? That long!

I was baffled! All I could do was throw my arms around him and hug him.

He got up and put the necklace around my neck.

It was a simple chain. But the heart had delicate cursive writing was beautiful.

I lightly touched it.

"Thank you so much! I love it!" I exclaimed.

The rest of the night was spent on the couch. Playing video games, and really that was about it.

I left Des and Nate so they could update their channels.

I sat bed and talked to Hannah. She was glad everything worked out. And ecstatic about the necklace.

Before I knew it, it was 4:00am. And I needed sleep.

I I rolled over to plug up my phone and turn on pandora.

Soon after I fell asleep
