“Hey Natalie wake up we’re almost there.” I said as we got close to Nicolai’s house.
“Oh my God I fell asleep.” Natalie said as she jumped awake.
“Yea.” I said as I chuckled.
“You are not supposed to be driving.” Natalie said as she gave me an evil glare.”
“Yea and I don’t think I’m not supposed to be having sex but I didn’t see you complain about that.” I said and I saw as Natalie turned beat red.
“I love you too.” I said just as we arrived to Nicolai’s gate.
“Nicolai, open the gate.” I said through the intercom and the gate opened. Natalie seemed to be in a daze as he saw the house that Nicolai lived in. I opened the door and went in knowing that Nicolai had a surprise waiting for me, which is why I left Natalie near the door.
I was right too, as soon as I got close to the stairs some arrows started flying towards me and luckily I avoided them except for one but it only scratched me but either way by the time I was finished my stitches had ripped.
“Angel I see you have been hurt.” I heard Nicolai say as he descended down the stairs hell it was like he floated down.
“No shit.” I said mad about his games but then I smiled knowing that he did it for security. I looked at Natalie and waved for her to come.
“Hey Nicolai this is Natalie, Natalie this is Nicolai my family friend and guardian angel I guess you could say.”
“Aw you must be the one, for Maxine has never introduced me to her girlfriend’s before.”
“Nicolai please do not do this.”
“I say to you Natalie that you must be the one for I can see the love in her eyes, my angel has never been happier but if you do hurt her I will hunt you down and make sure you pay.” Nicolai said in a low voice before clapping once and then smiling.
“Trust me Nicolai I don’t plan on hurting her.”
“Okay anyways Nicolai can you get someone to drive the jeep to California so that the police wont find it here, and can we please borrow some clothes and your shower?”
“Of course angel I have to take care of some business I will be back in two hours and hopefully by then you two will be ready and we can have a feast.”
“Thank you very much Nicolai.” Natalie said as she gave him a hug, which surprised Nicolai since he was the one who usually gave the hugs.
“You know what Natalie I will take you in as well you will be my third angel.”
“Ha-ha thank you Nicolai.” Natalie said again before I pulled her back and led her to the guest room. We began to shower and just held each other under the water before helping each other shower. Once we were finished I dressed in some jeans and a black long sleeve shirt and some tennis shoes while Natalie wore a lumberjack long sleeve shirt and some blue jeans, as well as teenage shoes.
“My angels are you two finished?”
“Yes Nicolai.” We said together. We sat down and ate some food, honestly I think we just drank it all up because we were starving. Once we were finished we headed to the living room to talk about what it is we were going to do.
“Okay Maxine I have made passports for you both and I have bought airplane tickets for Kentucky. Once you get there, there will be a car in the parking lot a mustang and cash will be inside as well as two cell phones that are secured to use for contacting each other and me.
“No not really.”
“Awesome you two have a good night sleep and tomorrow you will go to Kentucky to find Jennifer.” Nicolai said as he headed up the stairs to his room. Natalie and I just looked at each other before heading upstairs as well to have a good night sleep.
It wasn’t till two in the morning that I woke up and headed downstairs to talk with Nicolai, he was of course waiting for me. This time instead of being in robes he was wearing a pirate costume. I couldn’t help but laugh a little bit as I saw him as he played with his technology.
“You know angel I really love you but you must understand I hate when you bring people with you.” Nicolai said as he continued to look at his screens.
“I know Nicolai and I’m sorry but I couldn’t leave her.”
“Yes of course you people and your love it gets tiring.”
“One day you will find the one.”
“Ha that is funny, love for me is like plants in Antarctica, impossible.”
“You say that now but you just wait and see.”
“Whateves my angel anyways this here is the store where Jennifer was at.” Nicolai said as he showed me the video of the store and yes Jennifer was there but she looked too skinny and her clothes as well as her hair were a mess. My heart began to hurt as I saw her, knowing that in a way it was my fault maybe if I had been more understanding.
“Stop blaming yourself angel.” Nicolai suddenly said.
“What makes you say that?”
“I know you angel always feeling responsible for all the bad things that happen to your loved ones.”
“I’m weak aren’t I?”
“No you are not weak you are strong if you were strong then you would be weak.”
“How have you come to this conclusion?”
“You fight for your love and Jennifer is love for you, you have something to make strong to make you not die slowly and without anyone.”
“And you say you don’t believe in love.”
“I don’t for me but for you I do.”
“Thank you Nicolai.”
“Do not worry angel.”
“Nicolai can I ask you something?”
“Why do you not believe in love?”
“I have not always been like this, but when I fell in love and she left me then I no longer loved.”
“Who was she?”
“I can not tell for I promised her.”
“Do you still see her?”
“Do you know where she is?”
“Then why not contact her?”
“She no longer lives.”
“Fate happened.” Nicolai said as he gave me a sad smile before turning back to get lost in his technology.
“Tomorrow will you be waiting for us to leave?”
“No I will be gone.”
“Okay thanks Nicolai and I’m sorry you no longer believe in love.”
“So am I angel.” Nicolai said as he stood and closed his door.”
I went back upstairs and laid down next to Natalie, I put my arm over her stomach and held her against me. I was just falling asleep when she turned around and put her arm on my back ads she snuggled her self closer against my body. It felt nice having her in my arms knowing that she was mine.
