Post with 6 notes
I sat and carried on watching tv for a little while longer, then I got restless. I realized even though she had just been gone ten minutes, I missed her already. But she would be back soon to make something delicious i’m sure.
I was pretty hungry, my stomach started to rumble. I hadn’t had many people cook something for me before, I usually just had microwave meals or takeaways. I was a useless cook. But perhaps I could learn.
The minutes started to pass, I knew she was a grown woman, but I couldn’t help but worry. She had never been in Manchester before, it could be pretty rough at times. But surely not through the day. This area was usually pretty calm aswell, well I had lived here for years and hadn’t seen anything bad happen.
But, she was a beautiful girl… What if someone did try to get to her? Or try it on with her? With, my girl.
My mind started to run away with me as it often did, I started to think the worst, I grabbed my coat and quickly put on my boots and ran downstairs.
I flung the door open and to my shock Tina was there just away to come inside. I accidentally bashed into her almost knocking her flying. But I grabbed her before she had a chance to fall over.
‘Shit, sorry Tina. I was just away to come look for you, are you ok?’
Her eyes were red, it was easy to spot that she had been crying. I smoothed my thumb over her cheek but she just pulled away from me and walked inside.
‘I’m sorry Adam. I have to go home.’
‘What? Why? What happened?’
I was confused, I thought she was staying for another two nights. What had happened?
I rushed upstairs after her, she was already in the bedroom packing her suitcase.
‘Tina, please speak to me, Have I done something wrong?’
‘No, you haven’t… I just. I’m needed at home. I’m sorry.’
Her voice was quiet and so delicate.
I didn’t know what to do, I sat down on the edge of the bed watching her, I wanted to just grab her and not let her go.
She zipped up her suitcase and walked out of the bedroom towards the door, was she not even going to say goodbye to me?
I went after her quickly, I grabbed her arm pulling her back to me.
‘Tina. Please don’t go like this.’
She looked up into my eyes, her eyes were full of sadness and she looked scared.
Why should she be scared? Did I scare her? Before she left to go to the shop she was so happy and we were laughing. What went wrong?
‘At least let me walk you to the train.’ My voice was quiet now, and close to breaking.
I had to try and keep myself together.
We walked in silence to the train station, I wasn’t even sure whether to hold her hand or not. She was very jumpy, looking around herself almost every second.
The only words that were spoken as she got on the train was ‘I’m sorry’ and ‘I’ll call you.’
Then that was it, she got on the train and left. Just like that.
I slumped back to my house, I couldn’t hold back a tear that trickled down my cheek.
I thought we had something, I thought she liked me as much as I liked her.
Something must have happened when she went out to the shop, did she see someone else who made her change her mind about me?
Or was it me?
Is this the end of a love that has just begun?
