Chapter Eleven (Part Two)
The day with Matías flew by and before I realized it, the sun had set.
“Want to get something to eat?” I asked innocently.
Matías gave me a sad smile. “Sure.”
Taking advantage of the moment, I gave his hand a quick squeeze. “It will be okay.”
He pulled me in for an embrace. “How can you be so sure? I mean, what if she’s gone, Lex? What if we’ve lost her forever?”
What if? More like we HAVE lost her forever!
Rubbing his back with one hand and keeping the other firmly around his waist, I took a second to enjoy the shared moment.
“Seriously, Lex,” said Matías pulling back and looking deep into my eyes. “I don’t know what I’m going to do without her. I mean I know we broke up, but-”
Before he could say another word, I reached up and pulled his face toward mine. Our lips met for a brief second before he pulled back with a hurt look on his face.
“What are you doing?”
My jaw dropped and anger flowed through my core. “I thought you wanted me to kiss you?”
He held up his hands in a surrender position and took a big step back. “Why would you ever think that?”
“The way you looked at me,” I spat.
“What?” he gasped.
I crossed my arms across my chest. “You were looking into my eyes. You couldn’t have been any more obvious!”
“Alexa, look, I’m sorry if I gave you the wrong impression,” he apologized. “Sometimes, when I look at you, all I can see is Abriana.”
I exhaled loudly through clenched teeth.
“It’s okay,” said Matías. “Honestly, it was just a silly mistake.”
My brain tried to process the words tumbling out of his mouth. Mistake? It wasn’t a MISTAKE! I’m in love with you and whether you realize it or not, we WILL be together!
I plastered a smile on my face and shrugged my shoulders. “Sorry,” I apologized, “I guess I read the signals wrong.”
This appeared to appease Matías. Taking a deep breath, he managed a smile. “It’s okay, Lex. Let’s just pretend like it didn’t happen.”
My cheeks burned. “Sure. I mean, okay. That’s fine.”
“Look, I think we should just call it a night,” said Matías. “Is that okay with you?”
“Yeah, that’s fine. I should get back to my parents anyways,” I said.
Matías pulled his car into our driveway. “Will you please call me if you hear anything?”
I nodded. I’ll call you once they find her dead body!
He reached over and put his hand on top of mine. “Thanks, Alexa. You’ve always been like a little sister to me.”
I pulled my hand away, perhaps a bit too quick, but I didn’t care. Little sister! Shut up! You’ll love me soon enough, Matías, and if you don’t, I’ll kill you too!”
