I sat my bag down by the door as I entered the house I shared with my boyfriend, Chris. I then walked towards the living room to see him sitting on the couch, an unhappy look on his face.
"What's wrong sweetie?" I asked as I sat down next to him.
He gave me a disgusted look before moving away from me.
I was utterly confused, what had I done?
"How is he?" He asked.
"Who?" I questioned not knowing he was speaking of.
"The man you're cheating on me with." He replied.
My eyes widened and I almost broke down then and there. How could he think something so horrible of me?
"I'm not cheating on you, I'd never do that." I stated firmly.
"Then who's number did I find on your message board? Don't bother lying because I called the number." He replied, pulling a posted note from his pocket.
"It's a client of mine named Dylan, he wanted a tattoo so I tattooed him today." I answered.
He stood up quickly and walked past me to the door.
"Charlotte, we are done." He said before slamming the front door behind him.
Tears ran down my cheeks as if a waterfall had just started.
I picked up my cell phone and dialed one of Chris' and I's mutual friends' number as I walked to the bedroom.
"Hey what's up?" Angelo's voice said from the other line.
"D-do you have a moment?" I asked, my voice breaking.
"What's wrong Charlotte?" He asked, sounding concerned.
"Chris thinks I'm cheating on him since I've been at work a lot lately but I'm really saving up to go on vacation with him." I sniffled.
"That's really sweet of you, wait, I think he's here. I'll talk him out of it. Don't worry about it Char." Angelo quickly said.
"Thanks ange." I replied before quickly hanging up.
I sat my phone down beside me then picked up my sketch book.
Sketching was something that always calmed me down no matter what. It was something I could control in a world that wouldn't take my say in something.
I picked up a pencil and started sketching something I had thought of at work, a heart being given to a had with the words 'I trust you'.
I sketched for what felt like an hour before I heard the front door be unlocked then the sounds of someone walking in.
"Charlotte sweetie?" Chris' voice asked making butterflies form.
"I-I'm in here." I replied loud enough so he could hear me.
The bedroom door opened to show Chris was standing there with tears running down his cheeks.
"I am so so so sorry Charlotte, I don't know what came over me to think such horrible things of you." He said as he sat down next to me.
I placed my notebook aside and leaned my forehead on his shoulder. He pulled me into a hug and kissed my head.
"Angelo explained it all to me, I love you so much Charl-" I cut him off with a kiss.
"Are we back together?" I asked.
He nodded with a smile before giving me a kiss in return.
"How much have you saved up?" He asked.
"No clue but I believe we have enough to go to Stockholm." I replied.
"That sounds awesome." He smiled.
I hope you liked it, I'm always taking requests so don't be afraid to leave some!
