I is back! And I know that I said I'd update yesterday but when I got anywhere near a pc it was 11pm and a tad too late really and I was nearly dieing from sleep deprivation. So urm yeah..here it is; the next chapter...Oh and this one isnt a few words long this time :D http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Belgium/Provincie_West_Vlaanderen/Brugge-357609/Restaurants-Brugge-Cafe_Craenenburg-BR-1.html<-----A link to caf cran's webpage.
After I finished crying, I looked up at Jace and was shocked with what I saw. His face was contorted into a look of anguish. "are you ok?" I asked through tears.
"I've just realised something" he stated, a little grin forming on his face.
"You've just realised you're gay?" I asked, smiling devishly at him and raising an eyebrow.
"You know for somebody so small, you’re awfully annoying sometimes. You know that, right?" he scowled in mock hurt.
"So I’ve been told" I ruffled his hair.
"And you don't care what people think of you?" he asked in awe.
"Nah, I'm used to it by now. Besides, most of it's not true" I shrugged, not Caring what he knew anymore. I'd already spilled my darkest secrets.
"Apart from the snoring thing" he grinned.
"Shut up!" I punched his arm lightly "you know it's not true" I said proudly.
"Uh huh. Sure it isn't" he said sarcastically. "what about that time after we’d got drunk?" he folded his arms in victory but he was far from winning.
"It was an app but whatever helps you sleep at night" I shrugged.
"The thought of you helps me sleep at night", he replied, "I think I love you" he added in a meek voice, suddenly going pale.
"Y-y-you w-w-what?" I stuttered uncountable; I'd always vowed after my parents death that I couldn't risk falling in love because sooner or later I'd always eventually lose them.
"Oh Rave, I adore you. How you won't believe a single comment I give you, how you constantly keep me on my toes, how you smile at the simple things in life", I blushed a deep red when he said this, "hell, I even love the colour of your blush. But most of all, I love you because of who you are." he smiled weakly, "ever since I met you, I've not had any sleep because of my confused feelings for you, but I now know that I really truthfully love you." he looked down at his shoes after his speech as if they would reveal the mysteries of the universe.
"Say something" he pleaded after a few minutes of silence. I opened my mouth to speak, but no sound came out. I was shocked that much, my arms just hung limp at my sides and my whole body just slumped down into the ground.
"Never mind, I can see you don't feel the same way" Jace spat viciously and stormed off into the house. Tears welled up in my eyes; I knew he'd leave, they always do. Without warning, I suddenly found myself walking back towards the house and into the hallway. I carried on up the stairs until I saw his bedroom door. I heard a lot of bangs as I twisted the handle. I looked inside, and the room looked as if a tornado had struck in his room. His desk was upturned and all his possessions were strewn along the floor. Books, clothes, paper, everything was on the floor. Even his bed was twisted out of it's original place. A flash of colour caught my peripheral vision and I bent down to retrieve it. It was a photo from the carnival we went to when I'd first arrived here. I was looking directly at the camera with a ghosted expression; it looked like a completely different person. I WAS a completely different person back then. Jace really changed me and helped me heal. Glancing up, I saw Jace's silluette huddled on the floor in the corner of the room. I stood up and silently padded against the floor to where he was stood, being careful to dodge the objects in the floor. How had he done this in the time he'd been up here? I guessed I had been sat in shock longer than I first thought.
"Jace?" I asked tenderly.
"What?" he asked in a heartbroken sob. I could just about make up a few stray tears running down his face like little raindrops.
"I'm sorry, you just shocked me" I tried to explain.
"It's fine, I should have known better than to admit that. Lock the door on your way out" he brushed me off, trying to get rid of me, but I wasn't giving up that easily.
"Let me explain" I stated. With a sigh Jace nodded for me to continue. "I was in shock because I've loved you for a few weeks now. I couldn't believe you'd said that to me. But, you see, I'm going home in three weeks so it wouldn't work anyway. And people leave me all the time anyway, so I couldn't do it" I finished pathetically with a shrug.
"Didn't you just say you loved me?" Jace asked, cocking an eyebrow.
"Yeah," I replied looking at the ground, "why?" I asked.
"That's all I need to hear." he answered softly before crushing his lips to mine. The kiss was everything I could ever imagine. Soft yet passionate, electrifying yet peaceful. Complete opposites of the spectrum, but so completely comparable. My arms wound round his broad, muscled shoulders while his hands ran up my waist and back again. I parted my lips slightly and Jace's tongue entered my mouth. I gasped from the contact; it felt completely wrong yet so completely right. My head was spinning from the contact but I knew that I really did love him. Jace's mouth left mine and proceeded to nibble my ear slightly, I arched my back in response and gave a low moan from the base of my throat. I felt the vibrations of Jace's chuckle against my neck as he slowly yet surely bit down on the base of my neck where my shoulder joined it. I was in bliss, but I knew that I had to come down from heaven some time soon.
"Jace" I moaned. "Jace" I repeated with more conviction.
"Hmmm?" he asked.
"My ass is numb" I replied, shifting from under him. It was true enough, but that wasn't the real reason, and I could tell that Jace knew it too.
"What's up?" he asked innocently.
"First," I gestured to my neck, where I was sure was already red, "that will Mark and my brother will wonder what happened to me and I'd have to explain to him. Second, what happens when I leave?" I asked.
"Don't worry about that mark, just blame me" he answered in a 'duh' tone.
"I will" I mumbled under my breath, which turned out that I might have said that too loud because Jace smirked
"I know" was his genius response. "But seriously, don't worry about when you leave, just concentrate on the presence." he shrugged.
"That's fine with me" I replied and snuggled into Jace's stomach. But the truth was, I was scared about what would happen. Eventually, I fell asleep into a deep slumber. Where dreams, didn't exist. I got the first decent night sleep since a year ago, and it felt good.
