First- He touches you and you light on fire. Your wrist blazes where his fingers meet your skin. The burns don't show, but it's hard to breathe with ash in your lungs. It's so hard to breathe, you're suffocating daily.

Second- It hurts to watch him, he shines. He's brighter than the sun, he's too beautiful for your eyes. It's hard to look at him. It's even harder to look away from him. You're going blind.

Third- Your ears are tuned to his voice, you could pick him out in a sea of thousands. His voice makes pretty singers who sing pretty songs sound dull. His voice makes everything else sound ugly.

Forth- The color of his eyes is deep enough to drown in. He is turning you into a cliched love-wrecked being. You're drowning, always sinking. Down... Down... Down...

Fifth- You know him, you love him, through a thousand lifetimes, across millions of stars you'd find him. You'd never leave him, you love him till death do you part.

Sixth- Darling, what he won't ever admit. Or he's too scared to admit is that he loves you too.

Xylon and
Your Name Here
have been best friends since they were in diapers. They grew up together joined at the hip. They would do everything together. Go on camping trips, or go to Xylon's parent's cabin for a couple weeks. As the two grew up Xylon didn't realize he had fallen in love with Your Name Here until they were seniors in High School. For their final trip together before they were done, he took Your Name Here to his parents cabin, and pretty much laid his heart out on the table, and Your Name Here turned him down, and told him she didn't feel the same way. Since then, Xylon treated her differently.

When they had gotten home, the two wouldn't even talk to one another. They transferred out of the same classes, and Xylon was cold towards her. Apart of him wanted her to feel the same way, but she didn't. He couldn't change her feelings, but little did he know, she was hiding something dark from the male. Something she didn't want him knowing, because she didn't want pity from her best friend. She didn't want him looking at her differently, and she knew he would if he knew. Little did Your Name Here know, she was wrong on so many levels. Shutting her best friend out, only pushed him away instead of pulling her closer towards her. She ended up moving away after Senior year, to try and heal along with getting over whatever happened to her.

As the years passed Xylon had taken over his father's company. Working inside a bank wasn't what the male had wanted. He wanted to open up his own tattoo parlor, but he was trying his best to please his family as well. He knew that if he did, he would be letting his father down. He didn't want that happening, but knew it would be a horrible feeling letting his family down. Meanwhile Your Name Here has moved back to town. She's now a huge lawyer and has made a name for herself. She decided it was time to move back to her old home town, and see if anything's changed. She didn't want to have a huge party or anything, but knew that her family would end up throwing her one anyway. She just hoped that Xylon wouldn't even arrive, but had a really strong feeling that he would.

When Xylon got wind of Your Name Here coming home, he knew he had to at least see her. See how much she's changed. He didn't want too, because he was still hurt over the fact that she had torn his heart out of his chest, and pretty much stomped on it. So the day of the party arrived, and he's now in the same room as her, and seeing her is bringing back so many memories. He feels like a child again, and Your Name Here is really glad he's there. The two decide to try and have a nice talk over dinner about what happened those years ago. What'll happen when Your Name Here finally tell's him about what happened to her? Will Xylon finally have the love of his life after all? Or will it all come crashing down for the both of them? You'll never know unless you join, An Undying Love.

The cast of An Undying Love.

Xylon Sexton; Taken

Female; Open

What I need from you.

This is not going to be a first come, first serve role play. There will be talk of mature topics meaning, Sex, Drugs, and Drinking. If you can't handle that, then please don't apply for this role. I'll be looking for someone literate, meaning you'll take your time to post. So when you are applying for this role, simply send me a message titled
I have always loved you
, so I know you read this and the rules below. So inside of that message I would like this simple skeleton sent to me.

Picture Link {Do Not Link It} || Character Name || Character Age {Twenty-Five & Older please} || Job Title || Likes {Five Total} || Dislikes {Five Total}

If I have to ask you twice for the small skeleton, and your Private Message isn't titled like I have asked, your message will be deleted, and your character will be over looked. Yes I'm being super fucking picky with this role play, so please don't get upset with me if I ask you to change something. Now please make sure to read everything inside of this thread. If you request into the thread before I tell you, you will be denied, period. Now onto the rules.

The rules of An Undying Love.

First- The pictures are going to be real. None of the over used shit either. If it's too big, I will ask you to resize it to a smaller size. If you can't find one to your liking, simply message me and ask me for help. I would be more than happy to help you look, or edit your picture for you. Just don't get mad at me, if I ask you to change/edit it.

Second- Romance will might be a big part of this story, but not at first. Just like in real life you have to work up to it. It's not a love at first sight type of thing. Cybering is a no on this site, if you want to keep the story line going, then we can move this to e-mail, or just skip it all together. That won't happen for awhile though, so we won't need to talk about that right away.

Third- Joining and then ditching is a no. If you don't like where this role play is going, simply message me and we can plot something out. Or if you are simply bored of it, and don't want to do it anymore, simply message me and tell me. I won't be mad if you get tired of it. Just if you join and then never post, is when I will be slightly annoyed with you. So please, at least talk to me about leaving the thread.

Forth- Plot twists is a must. I love plotting things out, and see where we want it to go. It's not that hard to become my friend either. So if you have something in mind, and wanna run it by me, all you gotta do is message me and be like 'Hey! I have an idea, and I just wanted to see what you thought about it!'. Because honestly I will do the same thing to you, so don't be surprised if you get messages from me about ideas.

Fifth- Stealing this idea is a no. It's something that's important to me. If I see anything like it, or someone stealing the main idea I will make it known you stole it from me. I have worked hard on this idea, and if you like it that much, ask me if you can borrow it. Just make sure to give me the credit for it. I will most likely say yes to letting you borrow it, as long as you ask me first.

Sixth- Posting. I know we all have lives outside of this site. I work full time, and sometimes on my day's off I'm not always on until later that night. So if you need a couple of days to post, I'm okay with that. If you are gonna be gone for a week or two, please let me know because if you don't, then I'll think you ditched out on me. I will do the same thing for you as well. If I can't post, or having a hard time I will make sure to let you know.

Seventh- Doubling will be required. I have a female in mind that's really good friends with Xylon, and I have ideas of where I want this to start out. So please make sure you are willing to double as a male character. If you don't double as a male character then I will deny you the spot. I'm doing this to make it fair for the both of us. Sometimes it's a good thing to step out of your comfort zone and do something new. So please make sure you have a male character on hand right away.

Eighth- Please for the love of God don't message me over and over asking when I'm gonna post. That's something I really hate, and it get's on my nerves when that happens. I'm asking that you don't wait 14 days to post. If you need time for a post I understand. I kind of want this to be a fast moving thread. If you take 2 to 3 days that's fine. I'm putting a 14 day limit and will not go past that. If something comes up and you need more time to post, simply message me and I'll be really understanding of that.

Ninth- Please give me something to work with. I won't put a posting limit, but if you only give me one paragraph when I give you more, I'll set a limit. I hate doing that, because I understand having writers block. Just please for the love of God, don't do one liners. If it starts into that I will take you out of the thread, and open it up for someone else. One liners kill a story line for me. It doesn't help move the story along at all. Details are a girl's best friend after all. So please a good 5-8 paragraph post will be wonderful.

Tenth- Now that I'm done sounding like a total bitch, I want this to be enjoyable for the both of us. That's what writing is about anyway. Having fun, and making something beautiful together. So please enjoy writing with me, and let's make something amazing, and see where this will lead.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon let out a small sigh. It's been years since he's seen Jenny. He got wind that she was coming home finally. He didn't know how to really feel about it. Was he nervous about seeing her? Hell yes he was. Would he be excited to see her? Hell yes he would be. He just didn't know how to really react right now. His best friend and roommate was looking at him like he had three heads. [b "Yo, is everything okay Mate?"] he asked him. Xylon shook his head and seemed to snap out of it. He looked towards the other male and shrugged a bit. [#01A9DB "Honestly I don't know. Jenny is back"] he said lightly. Bentley nodded a bit, understand crossing his face.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [b "So that's what got you so silent. Well what are you going to do? Are you going to go to the welcome home party her parents are throwing?"] he asked. Xylon sighed lightly as he put his head into his hands, and took a breath. [#01A9DB "I don't know. I mean the way things ended between her and I hadn't been the best. I told her everything, I told her how much I loved her back in High School, and the way she looked at me spoke volumes. She wouldn't even look me straight in the eyes after that. She told me that she saw me as a big brother, and that was about it"] he said, the pain lacing his voice.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Talking about what had happened all those years ago still hurt like hell. He had always been there for Jenny. He was always there when she was hurting, and for what? Just to get his heart ripped out of his chest the summer of their Senior year of High School. He had taken her to his parents cabin on the lake, and they were really enjoying themselves, that had been when he deiced to tell her that he loved her. He'd always been in love with her, and wanted to try being a couple. When she told him that she didn't see him in that way, it tore him apart. They ended up fighting about it, and then stopped talking the rest of the time they were there.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 So the moment they had gotten home, and school was back in session they weren't the same. They were distant with each other, and Xylon pretty much lost his best friend back then. [b "Dude, I know it's hard, but I think you should go. Show her that you are still around, and show her that if she wanted to really explain everything, you are more than willing to listen to her"] he said. Xylon didn't know how he felt about that either. Would he be welcome back into her home after all these years? Then again, her mother had been the one to tell him about the welcome home party they were throwing. He sighed and looked up at his friend. [#01A9DB "I suppose your right"] he said lightly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Bentley smirked a bit and nodded. [b "You know I'm always right mate. Just show her what she's been missing"] he said. Xylon agreed. He might as well do just that. What harm could it cause anyway? He pushed himself up from the couch, and made his way to his bedroom. He had showered earlier that morning, so he wouldn't have to shower once more. He found some clean jeans, and t-shirt and then got dressed. He spiked his hair a bit, and then put his socks and shoes on. It didn't take him long to get ready either. Once he was ready, he grabbed his phone, car keys, wallet, and apartment key. [#01A9DB "I'll be back later"] he called out, as he walked out the door.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He made his way to the car, unlocked it and slid in behind the wheel. He was all of a sudden really nervous. He just wanted to go back into the house, and just forget the whole thing. Bentley would chew him out if he did, so he started the car, put it in drive and pulled out of the parking lot. As he drove through town, he got more and more nervous. Would she be happy to see him? Or would she be mad at him? She had pretty much told him after she had ripped his heart out of his chest, that she didn't want to see him again. He just hoped he wasn't making a huge mistake on his part.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When her parents house came into view, he had to fight the urge to turn around and speed off back to his apartment. He pulled up to the curb, put the car in park, shut the car off and climbed out. The house didn't change much. It was still really well taken care of. He remembered all the summers, and weekends he would spend here. The memories made the male smile a bit. He shoved his hands into his pockets as he walked into the house. People were already there milling around, talking and laughing. He made his way into the living room, and spotted Jenny right away. Seeing her took the male's breath away. She looked amazing.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The years had been good to her, that's for damn sure. He then made his way up to her and spoke softly. [#01A9DB "Welcome home Jenny, it's so good to see you"] he said lightly. He was surprised at the sound of his own voice. He meant it too, and he hoped she would realize that. He kept his hands in his pockets as he waited for her to turn towards him, and speak. His heart hammering inside of his chest, trying his hardest not to high tail it back to his car, and just leave.]]

It seemed to be such a long time since she had been back in this sleepy time. Jenny had moved to the big city, she'd made a name for herself. She was a budding lawyer, small fry in the grandscheme of things and being back here was haunting. She was unsure of what to make of it. It was spooky in a sense but her parents acted like everything was normal, like everything was simple. She had left because she was so ashamed of herself, she had cut a decent man out of her life over everything. She figured he'd moved away too, a big fish in a small pond and Jenny almost hoped so. Seeing him again would hurt, she to see him again but... there was so much she couldn't bring herself to say.

Jenny was dressed to the nines, a backless dress, still somehow looking casual with her red hair down and sweeping past her shoulders. She smiled as she spokenwith some friends, a taller man with a rougher looking features, almost akin to a surfer lingered nearby.
[+purple "I've missed so much, right?"] She said to her friends and broke off for a second to get another drink. It was lovely seeing all the familiar faces mingling with friends she had met in the city but there was still an empty feeling in her. She was missing something and she didn't want to admit it. A voice behind her made her freeze and she knew that voice, it was more more mature now and she felt a chill go right down her spine.

Jenny paused for a moment before looking over her shoulder to see Xylon, he looked different. He was taller, decorated and she felt her voice catch in her throat as she stared at him, lost for words. He looked great, wonderful in fact.
[+purple "Xy."] She breathed out, completely caught off guard, she had hoped he would come but hadn't expected him to.
[+purple "I didn't expect...It's nice to see you."] She said to him and looked around, part of her wished the party would just dissolve around them so she could explain everything, so that she could have her friend back and she could tell him everything she had done and she so badly wanted to hear everything he had been up to. Some of their friends were married, with kids of their own and she wondered if he had moved in.

[+purple "I missed you."] Jenny said quietly to him, she knew it meant nothing and she still wasn't sure if she could tell him what had happened. It was painful, it would tear him apart like it had torn her apart and suddenly felt seventeen again, vulnerable and terrified. Maybe he didn't want to know, maybe he had forgotten and she hoped so. They could just forget about it, they could pretend it didn't happen and maybe get a fresh start and avoid all of the ramifications that would come between them both. She could tell him, she decided. They were older. The medication, the endless appointments. Maxwell had come with her to a few, he had roomed with her through law school in the big city and he was a good guy, he knew what had gone on between Xy and Jen, he didn't like it, they were both in the wrong he guessed but Jenny had broken the guys heart. She wasn't drinking alcohol, she couldn't have anything that risked accelerating her heartrate like coffee. Rught then her heart was hammering in her chest as she looked to Xylon. She wanted to hug him, to pour her heart out and explain everything to him but she was still so worried he wouldn't understand or maybe he wouldn't want to know her.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Seeing the woman brought back so many memories. Memories of when they had been in High School together. That last summer they spent together. The summer he pretty much poured his whole heart out to her. Telling her he had been in love with her. He wanted nothing more than to see that smile of her's again. He wanted to be the man for her. When she broke his heart, telling him that she didn't feel anything towards him, and that she looked at him as a brother figure and nothing more, ripped him apart.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The two had been attached at the hip when they were younger. As the years had passed, and they grew up together made him want to share the rest of their lives together. The male shook his head lightly when she spoke to him. A small smile passed over his lips as he took in the sight of her. She looked amazing. Hell she looked a lot better than any of the other females in this room. He wanted nothing more than to kiss those perfect lips of her's, but knew he couldn't. He never would be able too either.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "It's good to see you as well Jenny. You look amazing by the way. Whatever you did, and wherever you went it's been good to you for sure"] he said with a sheepish smile. He meant it too. She did look amazing, and he wanted nothing more than to scream it to the world. The silence was getting slightly awkward between them, and that's something he didn't want happening. He knew better though. He took a breath before he looked down at his feet. It was harder than he thought being here with her again.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I just wanted to welcome you home, and yeah. I don't know what else to really say. You and I should meet up sometime if you'd like. I think you'd really like Rohana. I would have brought her with me, but she had to work"] he said lightly. He didn't know why he had mentioned Rohana the way he had. Would she think he was dating her? Maybe that's what the male wanted her think. That he had fully moved on, when in reality he didn't. Rohana was his best friend, and has been for the last six years.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "If you decide to message me, you are more than welcome too. My cell number is pretty much the same. I never got around to changing it. Welcome home"] he said as he leaned over and kissed her cheek lightly. He took in her smell, and it washed over him in a way he didn't think was possible. He gave her an awkward one armed hug as well, before he ducked his head and made his way out of the house. He stopped long enough to thank her parents, and then was back in the car.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 His heart was hammering inside of his chest. He couldn't believe she was really home. He pulled his phone out of his pocket and sent Rohana a message. [#01A9DB [i I need to see you. Meet me at the Malt Shop when you can. I'll be there waiting...]] he read it over and sent it. He started the car, and pulled away from the curb. He couldn't get away from Jenny's place fast enough. He headed into town, hoping that Rohana would be able to meet him. If not, then he would figure something else out.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny watched Xylon and tried not to let her heart skip a beat. She was quietbwhen he said wherever she had been had been good to her but there was a blush on her cheeks at his comment. Xylon mentioned a woman and it sounded as though he had moved on, she had missed her chance and she felt like someone had kicked her in the gut. Suddenly, Jenny seemed rather self-conscious and awkward. His kiss to the cheek was sweet relief but she wasntbsure how to react. She watched him leave, like a stranger. She had been set to tell him but he was gone so quickly she never had a chance.

Jenny looked frozen to the spot and it was Maxwell who came over and wrapped an arm around her,
[+green "Hey, what happened, did he do a runner?"] Max asked and Jenny nodded, looking as though she might cry and Maxwell gave a soft laugh before hugging her,
[+green "Forget him, sweetheart. You wanna go somewhere quiet?"] He asked and Jenny just nodded again. She grabbed her jacket and honestly she looked so dressed up but she didn't care, she just felt utterly suffocated in this place and Maxwell lead her out, watching her carefully. Jenny got in his truck and she waited as Max got in,
[+purple "Sorry, it was so awkward and I wanted to tell him, Max but I just- He mentioned a new girl and I don't want to spoil it for him, he shouldn't be-"] She cut off a little at that and new how stupid she sounded.
[+purple "We used to go to this malt place, can we go there? They do good food and you'll like it."] Jenny said and Maxwell nodded and took off.

Jenny was silent all the way there besides giving directions and when they finally arrived, she was hungry. She got out the truck and Maxwell was doing his best to cheer her up with jokes and such but Jenny just wanted to eat and then sleep. Max went to order and Jenny sank into a seat, looking outside at the street. She'd spent so many afternoons with Xylon here, laughing and sharing some fries and a shake. She wiped at her eyes when she realised she was getting upset and Max came back over with some fries and a couple of shakes. Jenny had always liked the vanilla and the curly fries but Max had done strawberry and cajun fries. She ate anyway and her eyes scanned the little shop as she caught a glimpse of Xylon and she just hurriedly looked away. He was meeting his girl here probably. The fries were too spiced for her and she avoided them but the shake wasn't so bad.

[right [pic]]
Max was a tall man, a little rough around the edges. He had recently bought a home in the neighbourhood and he had met Jenny when she was in law school, they'd roomed together and he was a well off guy, his father ran some expensive business and was always abroad so Max got to live the life. He had never considered Jenny as a partner and never really looked at her in that way before, maybe a couple beers too many now and then but she wasn't his type. Besides she always spoke about Xylon, all the stories of them growing up together and he always listened because it seemed to make her happy. He ate some fries and his eyes glanced over to see Xylon and he looked back to Jen.

[+green "Hey! So, are you excited for... you know?"] He asked, not wanting to say it out loud and Jenny just nodded. Maxwell figured tonight was going to be rough and Jenny looked like she just wanted to leave. He did notice she wasn't eating her fries and he figured he should have asked what she liked instead of assuming and he gave her an awkward smile. He didn't know how to cheer her up right then, she had so much going on and he chewed his lip for a while,
[+green "Did you tell him?"] Max asked quietly and Jenny shook her head, [+green "You need to, Jen. He's gotta know, Hell he might even understand it and want to help you through it all."] Max wasn't a stupid man, he knew that Jenny would need a lot of help after her surgery so she could recover properly and he was sure she would prefer someone who had known her for years to do that.

Max watched Jenny but she seemed to have checked out and he reached over and took her hand,
[+green "Hey? Come on, have your shake and I'll take you home, Jen."] Maybe it had been a mistake bringing her here and he sighed out softly. He wasn't sure what to do about it all and he couldn't fix this for her, she had to fix it herself, somehow. He gave her hand a squeeze and Jenny gave him a forced smile and Max leaned back in his chair, drinking some of his own shake.
[+green "Maybe before your surgery, we should do something? I don't know, do whatever you want. Make a day of it? Or a weekend?"] He offered up to Jenny who just shrugged. She didn't want to think about it and Max figured maybe he coukd arrange something, not a party or anything like that, maybe a short little getaway for her.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon had to admit, it was hard seeing Jenny. Seeing her look so healthy, and so damn beautiful. He wanted so badly to wrap her in his arms, pull her against him and just tell her that everything would be okay. He knew it wouldn't happen that way though. Things weren't going to be the same between them. Things had ended badly, and sometimes he wished he had called her and told her how sorry he was. Then again, he had been the one to get the heartbreak, not her. He couldn't dream of hurting the woman.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 A small sigh passed through his lips as he checked his phone to see if Rohana had even messaged him back. There was still nothing. He sighed as he looked out the window and started to people watch. The only thing he could do at the moment. As he was sitting there, he thought about getting up and getting something to eat. He was hungry, but at the same time wasn't. That's when he heard his phone buzz on the table. He opened the message from Rohana. [#C4788E [i I'm on my way right now.]] was all the message held.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He knew the woman might not be too far off. Thought with how curt the message had been, he wondered what was going on. He thought about replying but didn't. That's when he heard the bell ding and he looked up seeing Jenny enter the building with a man. He wondered if that was her boyfriend, or husband. He hadn't seen a ring on her finger, but that didn't mean they couldn't be married. As he took in the male, he wondered what Jenny even saw in him. He wasn't her type at all.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He shoved those thoughts aside as he knew that Rohana would be there any minute. He stood and walked to the counter. He smiled at the woman behind the counter. [#01A9DB "Can I get two large shakes please. The first is a mint vanilla, and the second is strawberry banana"] he said lightly. The woman nodded a bit. [b "I'll have that right out to you"] she said. The male paid for the two shakes and then made his way back to the table. He sat down and right when he did, Rohana walked into the building. She didn't look good at all.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The dirty blonde woman pulled into the parking lot a little bit ago, and had been sitting there. She had gotten into a fight with her father, and her heart broke. She wanted to take his pain away, but knew she wouldn't be able too. She gathered up her courage and shut the car off. She then made her way into the building and spotted Xylon right off the bat. She walked right up to him, and he knew she needed a hug. The male stood and wrapped his arms around her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Is everything okay?"] he asked her. When the woman stepped back and shook her head, the male knew something was up. The two sat down and that's when she started speaking. [#C4788E "I can't do this anymore Xy.. I can't handle the pain he's putting me through. I know it's because of the cancer, and the whole losing his memory, but today he called me a whore, and pretty much every other name in the book. I haven't left the house in weeks, and for what? To be treated like this"] she breathed out.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I know it's hard Rohana.. I wish I could do something to help you, but I can't. Just know that I'll always be right here if you need me"] he said lightly. That's when their shakes arrived and a small sad smile passed over her lips. [#C4788E "You got my favorite"] she said. The male nodded and handed her the light pink shake. He knew her better than anyone else knew her. The two had gotten close over the years. She lifted the straw to her lips, and took a sip. The sweet tasting treat was what she needed.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "So you told me that Jenny was here. Why aren't you with her?"] she asked. The male shrugged a bit and nodded towards the red headed woman across the way. Rohana turned her eyes towards the couple. She took another sip before she stood and made her way over to the table. [#C4788E "I'm sorry to intrude, but I think Xy and you need to talk"] she said looking towards the red headed female. Her eyes then moved to the male with her. [#C4788E "Care to join me outside?"] she asked him.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon shook his head and watched as Rohana seemed to work her magic. He sighed a bit as he lowered himself into the chair, wishing that she hadn't just walked up to them. He knew better though. He sighed as he picked up his cup, placed the straw into his mouth and took a long sip of his shake. He was gearing himself up for Jenny to join him. That's if she choose too anyway. If she walked out of the malt shop, he would give up all together on ever talking to the woman.]]

NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny pushed around a couple of the spiced fries and looked over when Xylon was joined by another female and she figured that was his girl now. She was beautiful, she looked a little off but maybe being called so quick had done that to her. There was a sad smile to her face and she looked surprised when Rohana approached and she swallowed, unsure of what to say. She watched Maxwell leave and sighed out. Well, there wasn't much else she could do and she looked to Xylon. Jenny was not a brave woman, still timid as she got to her feet and approached. She sat opposite Xylon and watched him in silence for a moment.

Jenny cleared her throat and figured life was far too short for all of this and if something happened then he at least deserved the truth.
[+purple "Hey. I... I have to tell you something."] She said to him, feeling awkward,
[+purple "I came back because I'm... Well, I've got a broken heart."] She said to him and realised how awful that sounded and she shook her head,
[+purple "I mean literally. I have a genetic condition. I- I need a heart transplant and... They found a heart, I came back to get the surgery."] She said to him softly, [+purple "Back when we were younger... I didn't know how to tell you and my prospects weren't good. I was in the hospital so often."] She was fidgeting, something she had always done when she was nervous. She started to tear up a napkin into tiny pieces.

[+purple "It wasn't you. I did- I mean, I wanted to be with you. I got scared, I didn't know if you'd want me, I'm sick, Xy."] Jenny said, trying t figure out the best way of telling him but she wasn't doing so well with it. She wanted to cry and take it all back but she couldn't and she had hurt this man so deeply when they were younger.


Maxwell was really trying to convince Jen to just tell this Xylon guy everything and he sighed a little, running a hand down his face. He sucked in a breath when Rohana joined Xylon and he wanted to take Jenny away, she didn't need to see that and it would only rub salt in the wound and he could tell she wasn't hanging in there all that well.
[+green "Jen, just talk to him, sweetheart. Tell him what- Well..."] He trailed off when Rohana approached and he looked her over. She was utterly beautiful, fantastically wonderous to look at and he held his breath for a moment, completely lost. He cleared his throat and looked to Jenny, giving her a nudge.
[+green "Go on, maybe he can remember your favourite flavours."] Max said with a gentle smile and he pushed up, giving Xylon a polite nod before heading out with Rohana.

[+green "Maxwell, but call me Max."] He introduced himself as he stepped outside and he watched the girl.
[+green "Sorry, sort of a situation. You uh, you're Xylon's girl, right?"] He remarked as he looked her over. At least Xylon had good taste and he was careful because the last thing he wanted to do was encroach on another man's woman like that but Rohana sure did look wonderful and there was no ham in getting to know her a little better. Max wasn't exactly the most charismatic of men but he could tell when a woman was upset and Rohana looked upset. He hummed a little as he tried to think and he looked around,
[+green "If it's not too much, maybe we could go for a walk, we can always stay nearby in case those two can't make nice?"] He offered. Honestly, it seemed like Jenny and Xylon just needed time to figure their own shit out without prying eyes and Maxwell was happy enough in Rohana's company to just leave them to it.

He offered an arm to the woman and smiled.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Watching as Jenny finally made her way over to the table, he was all of a sudden nervous once more. Apart of him just wanted to up and leave, and not hear her out. The other part was telling him to stay. He needed her as much as she needed him. When she started talking, the male looked towards her and shook his head lightly. She had to have heart surgery? That's why she had broken him so long ago? That's the bloody reason why? At first he was about to speak, but knew better than to say anything.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He let her words sink in, before he finally took a breath and started speaking. [#01A9DB "I'm glad you thought so little of me back then. It's good to know the reason why you decided it was best to not trust me, was to think I would have treated you differently. Yes I would have been more careful around you, because I wouldn't want to make matter's worse for you. Honestly knowing that you didn't trust me enough to tell me, really fucking hurts Jenny.. I honestly don't know what to say"] he then trailed off and looked away.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He spotted Rohana and the other male, and wondered if it was best to go and snag her away. Then again Jenny was pretty much laying it all out on the table. He turned his eyes back towards his old friend. [#01A9DB "I'm sorry that you have to deal with this, I really fucking am. I just wish you had trusted me enough when we were in High School to tell me. I would have done something more, something different. I would have changed, but you wouldn't even give me that chance"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You don't know how often I stayed up late at night wondering what I did wrong, to make you want to rip my heart out and stomp on it. I thought it was because you wanted to date other people. You know how I felt about you, and you pretty much tore me apart, and for what? A simple heart transplant?"] he stopped there as the pain was starting to show in his voice. He was hurt, and he was pissed. His blood was boiling. He nodded towards the door as he narrowed his eyes a bit towards her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "So you pretty much told your boyfriend out there, instead of trusting your best friend all those years ago. It's good to know I meant so fucking little to you"] he snapped. He was finally breaking. He slammed his hands down onto the table, and pushed himself up. He looked towards her, his chocolate brown eyes showing the pain he was feeling. He knew he shouldn't walk away from the woman. But what other choice did he have? He was hurting, and doing the only thing he knew. Close off and not let anyone in.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I'm glad you are home. I hope the surgery goes well, and if you or your parents need anything, lemme know"] was all he said. He grabbed his cup and phone and walked out of the shop. Rohana wasn't anywhere in sight, and it was better that way. He didn't want to see the other male, because if he had he would have done something he would regret later on down the road. He unlocked the car, slid in behind the wheel and peeled out of the parking lot, feeling like he had back when they were teenagers.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When the handsome stranger agreed to go outside with her, and let Xylon and Jenny talk she broke out into a small smile. He was nice to look at, that's for damn sure. She led the way outside and when he talked she nearly melted. [#C4788E "It's a pleasure meeting you Maxwell. I'm Rohana, or Ro or whatever you want to call me"] she said with a small smile. As she was taking a sip of the cool treat she nearly choked when Max asked if she was Xylon's girl. She coughed for a moment, and then took a deep breath.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She shook her head lightly and started to laugh. [#C4788E "Oh God no. I adore the man with a passion, but he's like my annoying brother. Him and I are not a thing at all, and we never will be. Him and I have just been super close for the last six years or so"] she said as she started laughing once more. She understood where he was coming from though. The way her and Xylon act around each other makes people wonder if they are a couple. She did adore Xy, but she couldn't see that happening.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "In all honesty, I don't think him and I would have lasted anyway. The way he talks about Jenny, and how he's still madly in love with the woman. There had been times he was with other female's, but they broke it off with him and he didn't even seem to care. He's just a good friend is all. Nothing to worry about there"] she said lightly. She was still laughing a little bit at the man assuming they had been a couple. Xylon wasn't even her type at all. Maxwell on the other hand might be.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She moved away from the malt shop and moved towards the small lake they had in town. Her fingers were still wrapped around the cup she was carrying. When she was at the pier's edge, she leaned against the railing a bit and looked towards Maxwell. [#C4788E "What's the story with you and Jenny? I'm sorry if I took you away from your girl, but those two have some things to clear up. So I think you could go back to her soon"] she said lightly. Apart of her couldn't help but asking.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He was nice on the eyes, and his voice pretty much made her melt the first time. Even if he was off the market it couldn't hurt to get to know him. Maybe if she ever got a boyfriend of her own, the four of them could go on double dates. She looked out towards the lake just then and fell silent. Her mind wandering to her father, and her whole mood seemed to go down hill all over again. She sighed lightly and watched the water before her, letting the silence wash over the two of them.]]

Jenny watched Xylon and she just stared at him as he got angrier and angrier at her. He was hurt, she had made him into this and she just nodded at him. He had been holding this in for years and Jenny looked away at his accusations and she flinched when he slammed his fists on the table. She didn't try to stop him, she didn't want to stop him either. He had to cool down and then maybe he would understand but she did know that right then she wouldn't be calling him for help. That was it then? Good luck with the surgery and have fun? Jenny just sat there staring at the table in front of her. She didn't know what to do. She wanted to tell Xylon to go fuck himself, to get angry but she just sort of sat there like a little mouse.

Jenny could tell some people were staring at her, she got up and exited, starting to make for home. It wasn't that far and she didn't feel like speaking about this with Max. She wiped her eyes as she walked and cursed as she felt her heel break and she took off her shoes, she wanted to be angry too but she didn't see the point. Xylon hadn't waited to hear her out and she clenched her jaw. It took her a while to get home and when she did she just wanted to go to bed.
[b [i 'For the record, Max isn't my partner. He found out when I took a heart attack at University. Don't worry, I won't need your help and neither will my family. I can look after myself. - Jen.']] She was angry, she felt shitty already and now Xylon was just making it worse. If he wanted to be angry then fine, let him be angry.

Jenny sat on her bed, frustrated and upset. She had lost her childhood friend, he had replaced her with a beautiful woman and now she faced a heart transplant all by herself with Max as a sort of invisible help. Max couldn't help her with everything, she didn't want him to. She wouldn't want anyone to, but that was the difference. Xylong would never accept her stubbornness or her pride, he would give her a nudge and help her regardless of her protests but Max wouldn't. She didn't want to put this on anyone, but it hurt to know Xylon had just turned his back. She had done the same to him, she guessed in a way. It hurt, and it had no damn right to hurt this bad after so long.

[right [pic]]

Max smirked as he looked to Rohana. So, she wasn't Xylon's girl eh? That worked for him and he listened to her.
[+green "I heard he can have a bit of a temper. But I'm the same, Jenny always speaks about him, it's obvious the two are mad for each other but they just have to let themselves sort out everything."] He remarked with a shrug and he smiled. He didn't want to talk about Jenny or Xylon, he wanted to speak about her and get to know her. She was breathtaking. Her laugh was like honey and he watched her, drinking in her image.

[+green "We roomed together for a while. Jen is lovely and all but yeah, she's like a little sister. She's stubborn and proud and hates accepting help."] He pointed out and leaned on the railing. It was nice here and he stretched a little.
[+green "When she said she was coming back here, I rented a nice place me and her could stay while she recovers but uh, well, that's going to be tough. But, what about you?"] He asked her curiously as he looked her over.

[+green "Did you grow up here?"] He asked and he made a mental note to remember to tell Jenny that Xylon and this girl weren't dating. Rohana was beautiful in that subtle and ethereal way and he had to admit she was out of his league. She figured Jenny didn't know her so maybe she had moved here after those two had had their little argument.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Over the years Xylon's temper never got any better. If something didn't go his way, he would get pissed off and would fly off the handle, and act like a child. That's what he was doing right now. While he had been so focused on him and Jenny, he forgot that Rohana had come to meet up with him. He was already sitting in the driveway of his home. He pulled his phone out and sent her a quick message. [#01A9DB [i Things didn't go as planned. I ended up leaving. If you wanna come over later you can.]]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He wasn't going to go into much detail about what was going on, and he shouldn't have too. Rohana would know pretty much what happened. He sighed as he shut the car off and headed into the house. He heard his roommate in the living room. He kicked off his shoes, and threw his keys into the bowl beside the door. [b "You don't look too happy. I thought you were getting your dream girl"] he said as he cocked his head. He paused the game he was playing as Xylon came and sat down.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "It was kind of nice seeing her again. Her and I kind of met up at the Malt Shop in town. Rohana and I were talking, when she arrived with her partner. I honestly don't know how to feel about it. I didn't think she would find someone else. Her parents never mentioned the male. They were always calling and telling me what was going on, keeping me in the loop like they always did"] he said lightly. It was kind of heartbreaking thinking of Jenny being in someone else's arms and not his. He sighed rubbing his face.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That's when he phone went off and he saw an unknown number had texted him. He opened it and saw Jenny's name at the bottom of the message. He read it over, and his heart about broke. She wasn't dating the man she as with, so that's a good thing. She was pretty much being a stubborn bitch like always. He sighed and saved her number, and set his phone aside trying to figure out a reply. He didn't want to be a total jack ass again towards her. He sighed and let out a low groan.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I also found out that she has to have heart surgery. That's one of the main reason's why she's here. She's refusing my help, but I know her parents. They can't take care of her alone. They will ask me for help"] he said to the male. The two talked for another couple of minutes, and then Xylon reached for his phone once more and opened the message again. He sat there looking at the blank reply box. He sat there trying to form the words before typing them. He then started typing a second later.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB [i I know your parents like the back of my hand. While you had been away, they called me every week and told me how you were doing. It's something they wanted me to know. They were like my second parents, so don't you dare say they wouldn't ask for my help. They have always been there for me, even after you left. Even after our falling out, they still treated me like their son. You and I both need to stop being so damn stubborn right now. It's not good for you at all.]]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB [i I'll pick you up tomorrow afternoon and you and I will go to another one of our spots, and we will try and talk like adults. I'm not taking no for an answer either. You don't have much of a choice in the matter right now. I'll see you tomorrow. Have a good afternoon.]] He read the message a couple times and then hit send. He stood and plugged in the other controller, and the two men spent the rest of the afternoon playing video games.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Looking towards the male as he spoke a small smile tugging on her lips. So he looked at Jenny like a sibling. Maybe she did have a shot after all. She listened to the male's words and cocked a 'brow slightly. [#C4788E "They let male's and female's room together? Didn't they think something would happen? I mean, I was raised differently and not to really share a room with a man until married, or if you were officially moving in together. I'm not judging you, just a little surprised is all"] she admitted. It was surprising learning new things like that.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 So he did have a place nearby, and she couldn't help but wonder where. When he asked if she grew up here, she shook her head lightly. [#C4788E "My daddy and I moved out here about seven years ago. He got a really good job out here, and his boss wanted him to open up the company. Not sure if you heard about it, but it's Johnson's Lumber. It's a pretty good company, and daddy's boss wanted him to run it. So we up and moved out here. I then met Xylon a year later"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I love it here, it's small and quiet. Everyone seems to know one another, and everything just seemed to click into place when daddy and I came out here"] she said lightly. Talking about her father was making her worry a bit. She felt her phone go off, and she pulled it out. She read the message from Xylon and rolled her eyes a bit. Of course he bailed. She didn't care though, she had Max for the time being. She then slipped her phone back into her pocket and looked out towards the water.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Looks like both of them got into yet another fight, and left. So hopefully you aren't stranded out here like I am"] she said with a small laugh. She didn't mind the walk, because she didn't live that far from here. If Xylon wanted her to go over there, she would have to go home and get her car. She turned around, and had her back against the railing. She rested her elbows on the railing and looked towards Max. She was debating on telling him about her father, and his health. Just as a warning in a way.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "So, before we go any farther if we do. My father isn't in the best state of health right now. I found out he has dementia and memory loss. Sometimes he doesn't know who I am, and tends to lash out in the worst ways possible. So if you and I do start talking more, just don't be surprised if you don't hear from me for about a week or more. He's more important right now, and I have to take care of him. We also found out he has stage four liver cancer as well"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I'm not telling you to get pity, I just want you to know that a lot of my time will be at home with daddy, making sure he's comfortable"] she breathed out. She tore her eyes away from the male before her. She didn't understand why she just fully opened up to him just now. Was it because she felt comfortable around him already? Whatever the reason, it was kind of nice to get that off her chest. It was nice having someone else knowing besides Xylon. She kept her eyes turned down, letting the silence wash over them.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny glanced to her phone and groaned, he really didn't know when to quit it. She knew it was pointless for her to argue with him and she just glared at her phone. She clenched her jaw and picked it up, of course her parents had kept him updated and told him all of her business. She rana  hand through her red hair and chewed her lip. He was right though, her parents always adored him. Her own mother had always wanted  them to get together, despite Jenny's condition and she loved Xylon so dearly. Even her father bad always approved of Xylon, despite how protective he was.

Jenny stared at the text and typed out a response.
[i [+purple "Fine, I'll be ready.']] She sent the response, short and ti the point before figuring she may as well shower and get cosy for a night. She wiped away her makeup and dried her hair, sitting in a loose t-shirt on her bed and switched on a movie on the television in her room. She lounged on her bed and stared at the screen. It was an awful feeling, now that she had seen Xylon. She had seen his hurt, his temper and how great he looked. He was a man now, not a boy. Watching a film by herself didn't seem to do anything for her except remind her that she was lonely without her best friend beside her.

Part of her wanted to text him again and apologise and admit how stupid she had been but she knew Xylon didn't want to hear it. It was better to leave him to cool off for now. Her mother brought some tea up and Jenny watched her,
[b "Xylon is looking great these days. I can't say I approve of all the tattoos but he's a fine young man. You really ought to get to know him... Maybe after your surgery?"]

[+purple "He already knows everything. I told him. He's angry, I gotta let him calm down. We're going to go talk tomorrow, I'll be out in the afternoon."] Jenny responded flatly and her mother kissed her forehead before leaving her to it. Jenny slouched in the bed and wrapped herself in some blankets instead.

[right [pic]]

Max watched this wonderful female as she spoke, she was a marvel. She was beautiful and she was intelligent but there was something else attractive about her, almost like she was the forbidden fruit he wasn't supposed to touch. So she and Xylon weren't an item then? That was good to know. Rohana was enticing if every sense of the word and he listened to every word she spoke. She looked after her sick father and he felt for her, that couldn't have been easy.
[+green "No pressure from me, I promise. For tonight, I'll settle for your number and maybe we can go out sometime? I'm sorry about your father, but if you like we can keep it close to home? A picnic maybe, if you want to see a rough guy like me again."] He chuckled a little at that. He wanted to see her again, to make sure this wasn't some ethereal dream they were stuck in.

Max watched her with soft eyes, she was a caring soul, he could see that and he looked down at her, placing a hand either side of her on the bannister she leaned against,
[+green "How about I give you a ride home to start with? I've got my truck."] Jenny must have walked home and Max figured he could check in with her later, for now Rohana had his full attention.

[+green "No funny business, just a drive home and I'll drop you off, in exchange for your number?"] He said and grinned as he leaned back and fumbled for his keys, looking over towards his car and then back to Rohana. She seemed sweet and he had an urge to help her, to protect her. Xylon and Jenny would be occupied with each other and sorting out their little feud, so who was going to be there for Rohana? Who was going to look out for her while she went through all of this stress and pressure? He didn't want to be her Knight in shining armour, he wanted to be able to help her and support her at the very least.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon heard his phone go off but he ignored it. He was too busy with the video games with his roommate. When they finally stopped playing they were both hungry, and their fingers were slightly sore. [b "I'm going to order a pizza. Or did you want something else?"] the other male asked. [#01A9DB "Honestly I'm game for anything at this point"] he said as he reached for his phone finally. It's been a good couple of hours, and he didn't know who had messaged him in that time. He then opened his phone and read through the messages.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He ready Jenny's and smirked a bit. She was always so stubborn. They both were. That's why they had been so close back in high school. She always knew how to calm him down, even though she was always pushing his buttons. He pushed her buttons too, and then did something cheesy and lame to make her laugh and forget why she had been upset with him in the first place. He sighed debating on messaging her back or not. He figured she would be asleep anyway. It was still early, but that's how she was.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That's when Miles walked back into the living room. [b "Alright pizza will be here in about twenty minutes or so. Tell me what happened with you and Jenny. I thought you would have been gone all night with her"] he said as he sat back down on the couch. Xylon sighed and put his phone onto the coffee table before them. He didn't know where to really start. He sat there trying to figure out what to even say. He didn't want to bad mouth her, but it was bound to happen sooner or later.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Well I was hoping to talk to her and ask her why she had done what she did. Come to find out she has to have heart surgery. That's a scary thing to deal with, and I guess I let my pride get in the way of her explaining. I kind of exploded on her, and said some things I shouldn't have. Do I regret it? No. I do feel like shit though, and I don't know how to really fix it. I'm picking her up tomorrow so her and I could talk like adults."] he said lightly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [b "Well I hope you won't let your temper get in the way again. I know you love the woman, and I can also understand where she's coming from too. She didn't want you having to deal with a broken woman afterwards"] he said with a small shrug. Miles did have a point, but Xylon wished that Jenny knew him better than that. He wanted to take care of her, and help her. Yes it would be a hard and long road ahead, but hopefully tomorrow will hold some good news for them both.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 What was this man doing to her? The way he put his hands on either side of her. She wanted him to close the gap and kiss her. She had just met the male not even an hour ago, and she was already feeling attached. She felt like she couldn't catch her breath. So when he pulled back she took a deep breath and nodded a bit. [#C4788E "I wouldn't mind giving you my number, and the ride sounds nice"] she said lightly. She was all of a sudden nervous again and that wasn't like her. She felt like she was fifteen again.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She wouldn't mind seeing him again either. She pushed herself away from the railing and shoved her hands into her pockets. [#C4788E "Thank you for taking me home, and thank you for not making this about you know who"] she said lightly, talking about Jenny and Xylon. Sometimes it was nice to have someone to talk too and have someone pay attention to her for once. Even if it was just for a little while. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly as she watched the male with silent eyes.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Also the picnic sounds like it would be fun. I haven't been on one for a while, and I do know of a couple of places close by as well. Depends on if you want to be surrounded by trees, or children"] she said with a small laugh. That's when she felt her phone buzz in her pocket again. She pulled it out and saw that it was her father messaging her. [b [i When are you going to be home? I have a list of things that need to be done, and I can't find the damn car keys.]]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She sighed a bit as she looked towards Max. [#C4788E "Sorry to cut this short, but that was my dad. I need to get home so I can see what errands he needs me to run. I kind of stole his car keys, because he's not supposed to be driving right now"] she said as she pulled them out of her pocket and shook them a bit. It was nice while it lasted that's for sure. She knew she would be seeing Max again, just didn't know when she would be. She smiled sadly towards him.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I know this might not be the way you wanted this to go, but I really do thank you for listening to me talk about my dad, and the fact you seem to be interested in what I have to offer. I would love to see you again, and to spend more time with you for sure."] she said lightly. She then did a bold move and stood on her tip toes and kissed the man's cheek to show her thanks. She then stood flat on her feet, and waited for him to lead her to his truck and take her home.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny didn't expect a reply and she almost didn't want one. It was easier to just play it off, they had very rarely argued when they were younger and when they did, it was judt because they were both so stubborn and dug their heels in. This was different though, this was a serious thing and Jenng wasn't sure if they could get past this. At least if they had a conversation about this then it would one way or the other, she would either have her friend back or she would have closure. It wasn't about her though, was it? It was about Xylon and how hurt he had been with everything going on.

Jenny woke early and she fumbled around to check the time. She sighed and got up, rummaging around to take some pills and then going for a shower. She fixed her hair and her face, only using a little makeup before finding a nice set of shorts and a vest with a flannel shirt that she loosely tied around her waist. She made her way downstairs and her mother was having breakfast, her father was in the garage tinkering with this and that like he usually did.
[b "Going anywhere nice, love?"] Her mother spoke up and Jenny shrugged, she didn't know honestly.

[+purple "Just heading out with a friend, I'm not sure where we're going."] Jenny explained and her mother laughed a little,
[b "Tell Xylon I said hi."] She handed Jenny some breakfast and looked her over. Had she had her pills? She knew better than to skip any and the older woman went to see her husband.

Jenny watched her mother and shook her head at her antics. She packed her handbag, pills, phone, purse, perfume and her charger just in case. She wondered how Max was doing, he'd gone off with Xylon's friend. She figured she was better to leave them to it, they probably didn't want to deal with the drama.  She couldn't blame him either, this whole thing was a damned mess and she felt awful for letting it get this far.

Max watched the absolute angel before him.
[+green "Trees sounds fine."] He remarked to her and watched her read a text and her mood seemed to change. He nodded to her, he would get her home safely. He was almost reluctant to take her home. He didn't know much about memory loss and cancer but he did know that it could get nasty. It wasn't his place to impose though and he kept quiet. He was shocked to silence by her kiss to his cheek and he smiled loopily at her. He gestured to his truck,
[+green "Great! Here, put your number in my phone."]  He handed her his phone as they walked and he opened the door for her before closing it and climbing in the drivers side.

He followed her directions to her home and pulled up. He looked to her with a smile,
[+green "I'll text you later, maybe we can head out somewhere tomorrow if you have some time."] He said to her with a gentle smile in place. He did worry for her, she was such a small and pretty thing, but she was strong and resilient so he figured she could handle it.
[+green "I'm staying at a lodge down by the beach so if you need anything just call, alright?"] He said to her and he hoped she knew that he wasn't some guy after one thing from her, he wanted to help her as best he could.

Max leaned over and pressed a kiss to her cheek,
[+green "Look after yourself, Ro."] He said to her before getting the door for her and getting back into his truck and heading back to the lodge he was renting out by the beach. It had a nice view of the ocean and the beach itself and he made sure the house was in order before relaxing and fiddling absently with his phone. He figured he should send her a text.

[+green[b "Hey, it's Max. It was great to meet you. If you've got some time tomorrow I figure we can find a spot for that picnic. Stay safe, Max x"]] he sent the message and smirked to himself, feeling slightly giddy to have met such a wonderful woman.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 By the end of the night Xylon was starting to feel a bit better. He was kind of looking forward to seeing Jenny, and that kind of surprised him. He had been up for the last hour and a half just thinking about what the day would hold. He hadn't heard anything from Rohana, and he knew he would have to make it up to her later on. He made a mental note to check on her later on in the day. That's if he wasn't too busy with Jenny. He sighed a bit as he checked the time.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He hurried and took a shower, before he changed into a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. He then finished getting ready, and by the time he was done it was close to the time for getting Jenny. He sighed lightly as he walked out of his room. He went to the front of the apartment and grabbed his things. He then slid his feet into his shoes as well. He the pulled his phone out, and scrolled to Jenny's number. His heart was pounding inside of his chest, as he typed out a quick message.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB [i I'm leaving right now. I'll be parked out front. I'm not gonna honk or anything, and I'm not really in the mood to get stopped by your mom either. So please keep an eye out, and when you see me come out to the car.]] That's all the message held. He wasn't meaning to be a dick about it either. He just didn't want to deal with other people at the moment, and could you really blame him? He had a lot to deal with as it was, and he didn't know how to really handle it.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He made his way out to the car and slid in behind the wheel. He started it up and sat there for a moment. A part of him wanted to back out, but another part was screaming at him that if he did, he would make Jenny hate him even more. He had to fix the little relationship they had. Whatever relationship they had going on wasn't healthy and he knew that. He sighed as he backed out of the driveway, and headed towards the woman's home. As he was driving he rolled the windows down.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The weather was perfect, and it wasn't too hot out yet either. He then pulled into the front of Jenny's house and shut the car off. He sat there looking up at the second home to him. He waited for the woman to join him. He sighed wondering how today was going to go. Hopefully he'd be able to keep his temper in check, and not lose his shit on her like he did the day before. He bit the inside of his cheek, as he waited.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As the two had walked to his truck, the male handed her his phone. She put her name and number into his phone and handed it back. [#C4788E "Again thank you for taking me home, it's really kind of you"] she said lightly. She was then tucked inside the truck, and she rattled off the directions. Pretty soon they were sitting outside of her home. She nodded lightly as she climbed out. A small blush coming to her cheeks at the small kiss. It was a small, and simple gesture she herself had done a little bit ago.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She ducked her head and ran up the front lawn and into the house. She closed and locked the door behind her and she let out a small sigh. She couldn't believe she had already met an amazing man. He was gentle, kind, caring, and he was already worried about her. She had seen the worry in his face, and his eyes. It warmed her heart knowing that someone else already cared about her. That's when she heard her father coughing and somewhat struggling to breathe. That made her heart race even more. [#C4788E "Daddy?"] she called out.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She then hurried down the hall and into his room. When she opened the door and saw the sight before her, she let out a scream. [#C4788E "Daddy!"] she cried out. The man was sitting on the bed his hands covering his throat, and she had seen the blade beside him. Blood was pouring out of the cut in his throat, and the life was slowly leaving his eyes. She fumbled for her phone and called 911. She was bawling, and on the bed her free hand getting covered in blood tying to add pressure.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She rattled her address off to the woman on the other end, and she knew the ambulance wouldn't make it in time. Her father was already almost gone. Her heart was shattering, and her whole world was crashing down around her. [#C4788E "Please hurry! I don't know how much long he has... The door is unlocked"] she told the woman and tossed her phone to the side. The next couple of hours were a blur pretty much. She didn't remember the men coming into her home, one of them grabbed her and pulled her away from her dead father.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She was a total mess. This was not how she wanted to come home. She didn't want to come home to her father killing himself. She didn't want to come home and have strangers in her home, taking the man away from her. She was then in the back of the ambulance as well. One man handed her, her phone. She saw she had message from an unknown number, but right now that wasn't important. She was bawling, and hurting, and screaming at her father for leaving her behind, and leaving her alone. He had so much more to live for.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [center [b [i Twelve Hours Later.]]]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Rohana was sitting in the waiting room of the hospital. She had finally washed her hands of her father's blood, and her heart was still shattering inside of her chest. It was late into the next morning, and she didn't know who to really turn too. That's when she remembered the unknown number. She opened the message with shaky fingers. She saw the name Max, and the tears flowed even more. She was debating on getting a hold of him, or calling Xylon, but knew better than that.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She typed a quick reply to the male. [#C4788E [i I know it's early in the morning, and I don't know if you are up this early, but I'm at the hospital.. Will you come and pick me up?]] She hit send not really caring if there were typos or not. She put her phone onto the seat beside her, put her head into her hands and started sobbing once more. Her father took his own life, and for what? Because he didn't want to suffer? She didn't understand. Soon enough she would though.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She sat there sobbing, as she waited to hear back from Max, or if he would even come and get her again. She was utterly alone, and it was the worst feeling in the world.]]

Jenny glanced to her phone and she got the message. It qas bound tk be awkward and difficult and she figured leaving quietly would be the best way to go about it. She made sure her hair was fixed up, mostly out of spite because Xylon hated her hair up. He could be boss, alpha or whatever, she would concede but she would be a damned brat about it. She had some breakfast and heard a car pull up, getting to her feet and grabbing her bag, she didn't see the point in saying goodbye to her mother, she was safe and she had her phone on her. She was worried she hadn't heard from Max but she sort of hoped he had hit it off with Rohana.

Jenny headed outside and saw Xylon's car. Shebwas nervous, honestly. He was on edge and his temper could be unpredictable and harsh. She deserved it though, but she had paid her due. She had been hurting too, he wasn't the only one upset by all of this. Surely, he had to know that much. She would never willingly hurt him, she hadn't meant to cause him damage and she wasn't sure how to make it up to him. Jenny got into the passenger side and gave a sort of quiet smile.
[+purple "Hey."] She greeted. The air felt stifling and at least it was a nice day. She wasn't sure where theybwere going but she guessed it didn't matter.

Her eyes drifted to the road as Xylon drove and she tried to think of something to say. Something that wasn't awkward.
[+purple "Your friend seems nice, the quiet girl."] Jenny murmured, that wasn't awkward right? Casually complimenting her replacement was totally fine. Jenny wanted to tell him she was sorry, to cry and to scream at him for being such an idiot but she just sat there in silence, staring at the road.
[+purple "Where are we going?"] She asked after a moment, even the radio and songs didn't seem to distract her or lift the atmosphere.


Max was woken early by his phone and he fumbled around, trying to find it. It was a message from Rohana and he smirked, expecting some flirty message, maybe an agreement to that picnic idea they had cooked up but it was something entirely different. Hospital? Why was she in a hospital? Had she been hurt? Max got out of bed, he wasted no time shoving some clothes on, washing his face and he snatched his keys up. Once he was in his truck, he finally realised he needed to message her back.

[+green[b "I'm on my way. Don't move."]] He sent the hasty reply and floored it towards the hospital. He parked up outside the reception area and peered in. He could see Rohana, he couldn't tell what had happened. He got out the truck and headed inside, looking her over. She looked uninjured and he stared at her for a while. She looked absolutely devastated and Max let his brain catch up. Something had happened to her father, hadn't it?

[+green "Hey, hey, come here."] Max said as he wrapped an arm around her. He really wasn't sure what to do in this situation, Jenny was the kinder of the two and more compassionate and she was way better at talking about death. Max knew it didn't matter what he said to the girl, she wouldn't hear it.
[+green "Do you want to come to my place? No funny business, just- I don't think you should be alone."] He said to her. He gently used a hand to guide her towards the truck. He wasn't sure if she had any other family. She had Xylon, but then- Why hadn't she called him?

Ah yeah, the whole him and Jen thing. It made sense she would prefer not to bother them. He didn't know what to do with her, she needed someone to look after her, to keep an eye on her and make sure she was safe. This woman had lived with her father and dedicated her life to him and now she didn't have that.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon sat outside of Jenny's house waiting for the woman to come out. He was getting more and more nervous, and he wondered if he'd be able to keep his temper in check. When the woman walked out of the house his breath caught in his throat. She looked amazing, and he was kind of annoyed when he saw her hair was pulled back. It was a pet peeve of his, but he would keep his mouth shut on the whole thing. When she slid into the passenger seat and said hello, he nodded lightly towards her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Hey"] was all he managed to get out. He pulled away from the curb and headed towards town. The silence was awkward, and he knew it would have been. What was he supposed to do though? He wanted to yell at her, he wanted to hurt her as much as she hurt him. Then again she was dealing with a lot already, and he didn't want to add onto that. At least not at the moment. Right now he would try to wrap his head around everything, and maybe he would be able to get the whole story out of her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When she mentioned Rohana a small smile passed over his lips. [#01A9DB "Well thank you. She's a total sweetheart, and a really good friend. She's been there for me for the last six years, and I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. She's been by my side since day one pretty much. Also, she's not my girlfriend either. If that's what you are worried about. She's nothing but a friend, and nothing more"] he said lightly. He didn't know why he had to explain that, but he did.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Maybe apart of him was hoping the two of them would be able to work on some sort of relationship. He wasn't going to hold his breath though. When she asked where they were going, he finally looked towards her and smirked a bit. [#01A9DB "Well you remember that really old run down cabin we used to go too during the summer? Well I figured it was enough out of the way of everything, and I figured it would be the best place for you and I to talk"] he said with a shrug of his shoulders.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 It was deep in the heart of the woods, and he hoped she would be able to make the hike there. It wasn't too far from the parking lot he was going too either. He then fell silent once more, and looked back at the road. He didn't want to cause an accident at the moment. When he finally pulled into the parking lot he was thinking of, he shut the car off and turned towards her. [#01A9DB "You gonna make it?"] he asked her. He was kind of worried, and it showed in his eyes.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He might be a total asshole, but he still cared about her. He always would too. Even if they were fighting like cat's and dogs, or they were butting heads. There was always something there that would make him care. He unlocked the doors and climbed out. He waited by the front of the car to join him. He wasn't going to be a gentleman quite yet, even though it was killing him not being so kind like he used too. He shoved his hands into his pockets and nodded towards the trail, getting a bit antsy to get going.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When the woman got the message that Max was on his way, she slid her phone into her pocket. She ignored the nurses that tried to check on her. She was closing off and she knew it. She wished Xylon was there, but at least she would have someone with her. That's when she heard the man's voice and she looked up at him. Tears filled her eyes once more when he sat down next to her. [#C4788E "Daddy killed himself.."] she blurted out before breaking down into sobs once more. She put her head into her hands.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 It took a little while before she was calm enough to really think straight. Max was asking about taking her to his place, and she nodded lightly. She took his hand and let him lead her to the truck. She was tucked away in the passenger seat, and she seemed to draw into herself once more. She sat there, tears running down her cheeks as she looked out the window. She couldn't get the images out of her mind. [#C4788E "He.. He slit his own throat.."] she breathed out her voice breaking with each word.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I.. I don't know why he would have done that.. I know he was suffering, but I didn't realize it was that bad.. I did everything to keep him comfortable.. I did everything to keep him happy, and I come home and he does that.."] she said her voice shaking. She wanted nothing more than to sink into the ground and just vanish. She wanted the pain to be gone, but knew it wouldn't ever leave her. She knew if she had been alone, she would have done something horrible. She was glad Max was there.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Even though he didn't know her, he was willing to drop everything just to come and get her. She leaned her head against the window before speaking once more. [#C4788E "I don't know what to do now.. I can't go back home and stay there.. The funeral needs to be planned.. I have so much to get done, I don't want to do anything.. I just want it all to end.."] she breathed out. The last words she didn't really mean, but another part of her did. Maybe life would be easier if she was gone.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 No one would have to worry about her. Max wouldn't have to step up and take care of a broken woman like her. She closed her eyes letting herself fall into the darkness that had been calling her since last night. She wrapped her arms tightly around herself, as the tears fell. Her heart shattering inside of her chest. She had so much to do, and she didn't even know where to start. [#C4788E "Thank you..."] she whispered to the male beside her. At least for now she wasn't alone, and yet she felt like her whole world crashed around her.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny watched Xylon as he spoke about Rohana. Part of her was jealous he had found comfort with another woman, whether it was romantic or not. He had been her best friend, they had looked after each other so often. She supposed she had ruined it. Jenny looked out the window as they drove. The lodge?  She hadn't been there in years, it aas sure to be a blast from the past. She didn't know what to say to him, how to fill time. Usually they would be goofing off, he'd be complaining about her choice of radio stations and she'd be insisting that he kept his eyes on the road. It was silly to think how awkward it was now. Xylon parked up and posed her a question. Jenny eyed the trail and nodded.

She got out and stretched,
[+purple "I've done this trail a million times."] She assured him, as long as it wasn't too straining on her heart. Besides, she had taken her medicine and some fresh air would do her good. Her chest wasn't sore or tight, her heard rate was up but for the most part she was doing good. She kept up with Xylon, mostly out of stubborn pride as they kept walking. Jenny adored the outdoors, she always had. The lodge came into view and Jenny took a moment to look at it. How many times had they both camped out here? How many fond memories did they have of this place?

[+purple "I always remember it being bigger."] She said to Xylon with a smile. It didn't feel right to argue here or hold a grudge, it was like walking in a graveyard of their memories. She didn't want to ruin all of those good memories by fighting here. Maybe it was better to talk in this place, it would be calmer and easier. They might be more inclined to listen to one another too.

Jenny went inside the lodge and looked around. It seemed like a lifetime ago. She finally took a seat and watched Xylon.
[+purple "I'm not sure what to say, Xy. I can't change what happened, all I can do is apologise and that doesn't change what happened. I know I hurt you, I didn't mean to. I was young and I was scared. Somewhere in my head, something told me you didn't deserve some sickly girl following you around all the time."] It sounded ridiculous now that they were older and Jenny fidgeted with her fingers. She was ready for him to scream at her, to maybe punch a wall or something.

[right [pic]]

Max stared at Rohana. He couldn't believe it, he had dropped her off and everything had been okay. Rohana was a mess, she looked completely shattered and broken and Max glanced to her worriedly. He wasn't very good at this sort of thing but there was a need to protect Rohana right then, to watch over her. She was in no fit state to be left alone. He parked up and looked to her,
[+green "Alright, come on. Let's get you inside."] The old man had slit his throat, gruesome and completely selfish. He had slit his throat and his daughter had walked in, he couldn't imagine the horror.

He lead Rohana inside and into the bedroom,
[+green "Alright, just make yourself as comfortable as possible, okay?"] His little home looked out over the beach, the sea rolling in and it was beautiful when the weather was nice. Rohana needed rest, maybe some food and then rest.
[+green "I'm going to order us some food, okay? There's some shirts and stuff in that drawer and then, we're going to cuddle up on the bed and watch a movie."] He said to her. He knew she would likely fall asleep and he didn't mind. He didn't care.

Max sank down and gave the girl a hug, it was all he could think of as he just held her close to him. She had witnessed something atrocious, something completely and utterly devastating and she didn't want her to think she was a along. She wasn't and she never would be. Max would help, and he was sure Xylon would help his friend too. Max gently rocked her in his arms and buried his nose in her hair. He was doing his best to offer some comfort to the woman, at least enough that she could sleep and then he could order food and make it a proper little movie night for them.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male was kind of surprised that she had kept up with him the way she had. Then again she was pretty stubborn, and his legs were longer, so she had to do a little bit more to keep up with him. He didn't mind it though. At least they weren't arguing at the moment. When they made it to the old lodge, he was surprised at how much it hadn't changed. It was still the same, and it did look a lot smaller to him too. [#01A9DB "I think it's cause we were younger, that's why it looked bigger"] he said lightly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He let the woman go inside before him. He stood outside taking everything in, trying to keep his thoughts in check. He wasn't going to lash out at her. He couldn't lash out at her. If he did, he would end up storming off and then what? She would be alone, and no one wouldn't be able to come and get her. They didn't have service here at the lodge. If you broke out of the trees farther down the way, they you would get bars. Right now though, she would be fucked.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He took a breath and walked inside. He shut the door behind him and found one of the old chairs, and pulled it over and sat down. When he did a lot of dust and bugs flew out of it. He coughed a bit, and waved his hand in front of his face to clear the air in front of him. [#01A9DB "God this place used to be so much cleaner. That's because you and I were here to keep up on it"] he commented lightly. He then turned his attention to her as she spoke.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 So she did understand the hurt she had caused. When she mentioned the fact she didn't want him to have a sickly person following him around, made his temper rise a little bit. He kept it in check though for the most part. Yes he was getting mad about it, because she was still blind to the fact, he wouldn't have cared, or treated her any differently. Was she really that stupid? He took a breath and put his head into his hands, trying not to snap at her. He lifted his head and looked towards her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You sound really bloody stupid saying that. You just didn't want me treating you any differently. I wouldn't have treated you differently. I would have still treated you like my best friend, but more. I would have helped you, I would have been there for you. Instead you decided to rip my heart out of my chest and stomp on it. I honestly feel like you didn't care at all. You were scared, which I can understand that. But did you really want to hurt me Jenny? Did you? Because it feels like you did"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "It feels like you were glad you hurt me, seeing the pain I was put through. Because of what you did, everything between you and I changed, and I didn't like it. I hated how we became so distant from one another. Then you moved away and that ripped me apart even more."] he breathed out. He stopped speaking, as he could feel himself getting more angry. The pain showing in his voice and his eyes. He stayed where he was, and let the woman before him speak before he would even continue on.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When they were inside Rohana sat on the edge of the bed. She was numb, and didn't really know what to say. She would have to go back to the house sooner or later for some of her things, and to pack up her father's things as well. She wished she had some sort of family out here to help her with all of this. She was an only child, her mother was nothing but a horrible person, her aunt's and uncles didn't want anything to do with her. She was utterly alone. She looked up when Max spoke.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Could she really eat something right now? Could she get comfortable? She didn't know what to do. She looked down at her hands as she seemed to close off even more. When he offered her one of his shirts, she jumped at the chance. [#C4788E "Will it be okay if I took a shower first? I feel gross.."] she admitted. She did have some of her father's blood on her still and she wanted to scrub it away. She knew the male was doing his best to help her, and that made her heart melt. He was amazing.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I'll also take one of your shirts as well.."] she said softly. When he mentioned food again her stomach growled. Maybe she could stomach something after all. She didn't care what the male ordered. She just wanted to take a hot shower, wash off the blood and last night's events, and just get out of her clothes. She then felt his arms wrap around her and that made her break even more. She wrapped her arms around his neck, and buried her head against his shoulder taking in his scent.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 No one's done something like this for her. She knew Xylon would have tried, but he wouldn't offer to cuddle with her, order food, watch movies, none of it. She held onto Max a moment longer before finally pulling back. A hot shower was in order for sure. [#C4788E "Give me about thirty minutes, and then we can crawl into bed.. I know it's still early but sleeping sounds nice.. Well after a shower anyway"] she said softly. She reached up and wiped her cheeks with her fingers. Max was too good to her right now, and she didn't know how to repay him for his kindness.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny watched Xylon as he spoke, of course she felt awful. She had been scared, she had been so terrified that everything would fall apart and in the end, it had fallen apart anyway. She let Xylon speak but she had never seen him look so in pain about something. It broke her heart and all she wanted to do was embrace him.
[+purple "I'm sorry. Xy, I really am. I never wanted to hurt you, I loved you too, I really did but I was so scared something might happen to me, or that you would find out I was sick and not want me. I know that's not you, but it didn't stop the thoughts of worthlessness in my head."] She said to him, she knew he was hurting and she knew she couldn't just say a magic word and make it better.

Jenny got to her feet, did he really believe she wanted to see him hurt? She had adored him, cared about him so much when they were younger. She approached Xylon and leaned down to grab his face, forcing him to look her in the eyes,
[+purple "The last thing I wanted to do was hurt you, do you understand? I know I djdz but I didn't want to. I was devastated too."] Her lips were dangerously close to his, Jenny wanted to simply kiss him but she figured it wouldn't be a good idea and she let his face go and sank back into a chair looking around.

They ought to clean this place up, like old times and maybe have some people over. Jenny was ticked off Xylon accused her of wanting to hurt him, she never wanted to hurt him like that. It had destroyed her, she had moved away to try and make things easier on them both. She fixed her hair slightly and tightened the pony tail. She felt awkward and she shifted uncomfortably.
[+purple "I'm sorry, Xy. I really am."] She murmured quietly, [+purple "If you don't want to forgive me then I understand, we're both adults now. But- if you can't forgive me, and you're going to look at me with betrayal in your eyes-"] She cut off. This was awful and she felt awful, she couldn't make up those years to Xylon and it was evident she was nervous because she was trying to fill the silence by talking, constantly. She had always been like that.

[right [pic]]

Max watched Rohana, just holding her for a little while before she pulled back. She wanted to shower and he nodded to her,
[+green "Take as long as you need."] He remarked and got up when she was in the shower, phoning in for some pizza and he wandered around, tidying up. This place was a bachelor pad, it didn't have much of a womans touch, it wasn't all that tidy but Max figured it would do. He made the bed and made sure there was some water and he found some snacks, putting them on the side tables by the bed. He wanted Rohana to be as comfortable as possible, to feel as at home as possible. She was a beautiful young woman who had been through so much.

Max might have asked her on a date like this sometime but now hardly seemed the right time for such things. She had just lost her father in extreme and awful circumstances. He figured she could choose the film  and he changed and got into something more comfortable, ambling around without a shirt on and judt some loose grey sweatpants. The doorbell rung and he figured the local pizza place was quick. He opened the door and did the exchange and he set rhe pizza boxes in the room. He had gotten a pepperoni and a cheese, unsure of what Rohana would like.

Max glanced up when Rowan exited the shower room and he had to clear his throat. She looked stunning, freshly showered and in his shirt, it was a good look on her. He just sort of stared at her for a while before realising and giving a charming grin.
[+green "Okay, come here. Relax, I have pizza, snacks and you get to choose what we watch because you're the guest."] He chuckled a little and got comfortable. There were blankets if Rohana wanted to cover up but Max was enjoying the view of her exposed legs and how she drowned in his shirt. She was abeautiful and she didn't even know it.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male sat there with his eyes trained on the ground. That was when he felt her hands on his face, and he had no choice but to look into her eyes. Those eyes he could easily melt into. Those eyes that he loved looking into for long period's of time. There was a time in their life he could read her, just by looking into her eyes. He would know if she was upset, or let down. He always knew when she was hiding something from him, because she couldn't look into his eyes for long.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The fact that her lips were so close to his made his heart race. He wanted nothing more than to pull her into his lap, kiss those lips he's dreamed of kissing since they had been senior's in high school. When she pulled away and sat back down, he was finally able to catch his breath. What was she doing to him? It was like she always had this power over him. This power to make him melt, and forgive her easily. Her words sank in, and he took a breath debating on what to even say.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Then why didn't you call me? Write me? Why didn't you trust me enough...?"] he asked, his voice broke on the last few words. He knew she trusted him, but she didn't trust him enough to let him into this part of her world. He wanted nothing more than to make up for lost time. His fingers were itching to touch her. Touch her in places only a lover should touch, the feeling of her skin under his fingers would be amazing right about now. He fought that urge though. He wasn't about to rush something.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Even though he wanted her back where she had been. He kept himself planted in the chair. His eyes locked on her face, and he let out a small sigh. [#01A9DB "I know we can't go back to where we once were, because that's in the past. I guess all we can do now is try to move forward. Either stay in each other's life, or walk away."] he breathed out. Did he want to walk away from the woman? No. He wanted her in his life for the rest of their lives, but he knew that might not happen.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He was proud of himself for keeping himself in check. He tore his eyes away from her beautiful face and looked around the small place. He knew at one point they had talked about making this their home. Away from everyone, and the outside world. He sighed a bit as he looked back towards her. [#01A9DB "So what's it gonna be? Are we officially done with one another?"] he didn't want to be, but if it would help her move on, then so be it. He would do whatever she asked of him.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When she got the okay to borrow the shower, she finally broke away from the male. She found one of his t-shirts and carried it into the restroom with her. She shut the door behind her, and leaned against it. She looked down at the blood splattered clothes, and she couldn't get out of them fast enough. She hurried and undressed, setting her clothes in a pile in the corner of the room. She then walked to the shower and turned it on. The bathroom was a sight for sure. She opened the shower door and stepped in.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She shut the shower door behind her and stood under the warm water rushing over her body. It felt nice. She tilted her head back and closed her eyes. She stood there for awhile letting the water wash away the blood, and some of the pain. At least she felt somewhat numb for the most part. She sighed lightly as she washed her hair, and body. She would smell like Max for awhile, and she didn't care. It would be better than smelling like death any day of the week. When she was done, she shut the water off.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She didn't have any clean underwear, and wondered what the male would think if he knew she was fully nude under his shirt. A small smirk passed over her lips at the thought. She reached for a towel and wrapped it around herself. She heard the doorbell ring, and knew that the food had arrived. She dried herself off and then slipped his shirt over her head. It ended right above her knees, and she felt like she was already drowning in it. She took a deep breath and hung the wet towel back up.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She then walked out of the bathroom some steam following behind her. She saw the layout and cocked her head to the side. He had done all of this for her? She honestly felt like she had hit the jackpot with this stranger. She moved back over to the bed and climbed onto it. [#C4788E "That pizza sounds amazing. As for the movie, I'm game for anything"] she said lightly as she opened one of the boxes and grabbed a slice of pizza. She took a bite and chewed slowly. She could feel the man's eyes on her as well.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She felt a small blush come to her cheeks as she realized she was in nothing but his t-shirt. If it rose just right it would give him a small view. She shifted a bit and streached her legs out in front of her. She was being careful not to make a mess on the bed either. She gently pulled the t-shirt down a bit, but most of her legs were still showing. She leaned back against the headboard, and took another bite of the pizza in hand. [#C4788E "Thank you"] she said softly.]]

Jen noticed that he didn't shout, and she didn't want to shout at him either. She watched him, maybe he would just get up and walk out. She couldn't answer him on why she hadn't called. As time went on it just seemed like it would be more and more awkward, she figured he would move on. She wasn't sure what Xylon would want from this situation, she figured he might want to walk away from it all.

[+purple "I don't want to move on, Xy. I don't want to go back to dealing with everything alone and wondering my whole life what you're doing, how you are... You don't have to go back to loving me, I know that. But I want to know the man you've become."] She said to him softly, she couldn't just be done with him. She knew she was a mess though, she felt stupid for being so weak and sick in front of him and she knew he wasn't judging her but it didn't make her feel any less like some horrible pity case. He didn't have to go back to loving her, although Jenny had never stopped loving him. She had cried herself to sleep so often, knowing she had let this man go, let him slip through her fingers.

[+purple "I'm not done with you, Xy, I never will be. I've been a shitty friend and a horrible person but I never was done with you. I was confused, I was stupid and I was cruel."] She confessed quietly to him. At least if her surgery did go badly, then they had cleared the air a little. it was still odd and it wasn't like when they were teenagers but hopefully Xylon wouldn't hold onto that grudge. She stared at him for a while, drinking in his image and how he looked because she wanted to remember it, to commit it to memory, just in case he got up and walked out that door. Then there was a rush of fear.

If Xylon walked out, if he left then she knew she would spend the rest of her life trying to fill the void he made and she watched him.
[+purple "I understand if you want to leave, Xy. I get it. I won't stop you, it'll hurt and I know I deserve it after what I did to you, but if you want to go then-"] She cut off. Then what? He owed her nothing, he was a free man to do as he damn well pleased. She just offered up a smile to him, it was completely false of course, a brave face.

[right [pic]]

Max watched Rohana, she was gorgeous. She looked good in that t-shirt which hid away all the feminine curves she no doubt possessed under the layers and Max averted his gaze with a smile towards her. he decided on a comedy, something light hearted for her to watch and hopefully forget her concerns. he looked over when she thanked him and raised an eyebrow.
[+green "Hey, no thanks needed. You can stay here as long as you need. Besides, this is a big house and Jenny is always telling me it needs a womanly touch."] Max said with a laugh as he glanced to the woman.

She was such a sweet soul, so quiet and he wondered if she would be different now that she didn't have the weight of her father bearing down on her.
[+green "Hey, look. Don't take this the wrong way, alright? I want to keep your mind off of everything as much as I can. Maybe tomorrow we could go down to the beach, I could teach you to fish?"] He offered with a chuckle. he couldn't fish very well himself but he figured it might keep her busy enough. She would have a funeral to plan, family to inform and he would do his best to support her because she seemed so alone. Had she even told Xylon? Her friends?

Max figured that was a problem for tomorrow. Right now they could relax, she needed to sleep well. He took some pizza and was glad she was at least eating, that would do her some good and she would need the energy. He grinned at her,
[+green "Alright, so, you have to tell me your favourite meal and I'll try to cook it for you."] He said with a grin, he liked cooking now and then. He was no chef, that was for sure. He was a lawyer, like Jenny. They'd only just graduated and they had spoken about going into business together, opening a small lawfirm back here.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 So she wasn't ready to let go either. That seemed to help him relax a bit more. It was strange talking like adults, but at the same time he should have done this in the first place. He put his hands on his thighs as he looked towards her. Would it be horrible of him to just stand, grab her and kiss her? Would it ruin the small ground they had made with each other? He thought she had wanted to kiss him, but maybe he was reading into it a little too much. He shrugged a bit lightly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 At the moment he was at a loss for words. He didn't know what to say, or what to really do with himself. He didn't want to say something that would ruin everything they had covered. He took a breath before speaking. [#01A9DB "I understand where you are coming from. I just wish you would have talked to me years ago about it. Maybe then we wouldn't be so stiff around each other right now. We wouldn't be like total strangers either"] he said lightly. He didn't know anything about the woman she was today.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She didn't know anything about him either. Maybe it was best if they started from the ground up. He did want to kiss her though, more than anything. He stood and moved towards her. Having her trapped in the chair was all he needed. He walked over to her, and seemed to loom over her a bit. He bent down and took her chin in his hand. [#01A9DB "You should have kissed me when you had been over there. I could tell you wanted too, now I'm the one taking what I want"] he breathed out. He didn't wait for a reply.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He leaned down, closed the gap between them and kissed her. At first the kiss was light and gentle, and then it turned into something more. Something deep, and lustful. He wasn't just lusting after her either. He wanted to make love to her, wanted to show her what it was like to be loved right. He pulled back before anything more could happen. He knew he was breathless, and couldn't help but wonder if she was as well. He then moved back to his chair and sat down. That was amazing.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "So? You want to get to know the man I am right now? Well ask away. I'm pretty much an open book, and you know this"] he said. He wouldn't keep anything from her. He never kept anything from her, and that wasn't about to start now. He couldn't help the smirk that crossed his lips though at the kiss. He wanted to do more, but knew to keep his hands to himself. He would let her make the next move, and if they slept together perfect. If not, at least they were somewhat working on fixing their issues together.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Feeling the man's eyes on her made her heart skip a beat. She wanted him to touch her in ways she never thought possible. She had a feeling that was coming from a place of pain, but at the same time she had wanted him to touch her, before her father killed himself. The moment she had run into him, she wanted him to touch her. She finished the slice she had in her hand, and reached for a napkin wiping her fingers, and the corner of her mouth clean. It wasn't much, but at least she ate a little bit.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She looked towards the t.v. wondering what he had put in, but wasn't really paying attention to it. When he told her about teaching her how to fish she nodded lightly. [#C4788E "We will need to go to my place though, so I can get some clothes. I don't think I wanna be seen in nothing but an oversized t-shirt"] she said with a small blush coming to her cheeks. She didn't mind wearing only this around him, but in public that would have been different. Way different, and she didn't want to make a bad image of herself.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "As for letting me stay, thank you for that. I honestly don't think I can be alone right now.."] she admitted. She then thought of Xylon and Jenny. She should tell the male, but knew he was dealing with his own issues right now. She would call him tomorrow and tell him. Either that or see if he could meet up with them. She did want to meet Jenny the right way. She sighed lightly as she turned her gaze away from the male beside her. She was still itching to be touched.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She had a feeling it wouldn't happen though. She leaned over and moved the boxes onto one of the bedside tables. She then shifted and curled up against the male's side. She rest her head against his bare chest, and slowly started to run her fingers lightly up and down his stomach and side. It was kind of nice to have someone there for her. Even if she wasn't fully here herself. She was trying her hardest, and she was glad he was willing to help with the distraction. She then tilted her head back a bit.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She pressed her lips to his cheek lightly. [#C4788E "I owe you for helping me.. Don't tell me that I don't, because I do. I owe you a lot. You didn't have to come and pick me up, you didn't have to offer up your home to me, you didn't have to share your bed with me.. You are honestly a life saver, and I don't know what I would have done if it hadn't been for you"] she breathed out. She meant it too. He had saved her from something more horrible.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She then shifted once more and rested her head against his chest once more. Listening to his heart beating seemed to really soothe her. She owed him a lot, and she couldn't wait to see what tomorrow held for the two of them. Maybe Xylon and Jenny would join them. At least she hoped they would anyway. Right now, she was just glad she didn't have to be alone.]]

Strangers was about right, and he was right. She should have told him, they should have spoken about this years ago but they hadn't and now they were both left awkwardly watching one another like nervous rabbits in the headlights of an oncoming van. She watched as he got up, for a small second she thought he might scold her for behaviour. She stared up at him, breath hitching slightly when he told her he was taking what he wanted. He knew she wanted to kiss him and she cursed herself for being so easily read by him. His lips crashed with hers, it was everything Jenny ever dreamed it would be as her fingers brushed against his cheek. She was lost for a moment, breathless and dazed when he pulled back and Jenny didn't want him to.

She was left breathless, completely bewildered as she watched him sit back down. She was still reeling from the kiss. She couldn't quite formulate words and she gave a breathy laugh. Xylon was smooth and charming, he always had been the confident one. Jenny was competitive though, even with her best friend and she narrowed her eyes at him,
[+purple "You're just gonna play that off, huh?"] She said to him with a smirk of her own as she got up,
[+purple "I've got a better way we can figure out just what kind of man you are, we can talk later."] She remarked as she moved over to him and this time she took some control and leaned down to kiss him, screw the gentle and loving part. He knew she loved him and she knew he loved her. She straddled his waist and for the first time Jenny explored him. This wasn't going to fix everything but it would get some of the tension over with, it would release the tension they held and hopefully help with any hostility. Jenny didn't care about her surgery, she didn't care about all those nights spent staring at her phone wondering whether to call him, she only cared about right now. And she had a lot of making up to do. She cupped his face as she deepened her kiss.

If he didn't want to talk later then so be it. Jenny could show him everything. Her hands explored his flesh, tracing each tattoo, most if which were completely new to her.

Hands were traded for lips, jenny wanted to explore every millimetre of Xylon, to take back some of what she had lost out on all those years again. Her touches trailed along his body, her clothes were forgotten about as she left a trail of kisses wherever she decided to explore, she wanted him close. Their connection was breath taking, wonderous and Jenny never thought a day like this would come. She wanted to show Xylon that she was not some confused teenager anymore, she was a fully fledged woman who was strong and able to make her own decisions. She wanted to show him how much she had missed him, how much she had craved him. She wanted to show him to love she had felt for him all those years ago, that she had just never given into.

[right [pic]]

Max looked to Rohana, it would be so wrong for him to take advantage of her right then. She was grief stricken, she had just lost her father in the most horrific of ways but God, she was beautiful. How she looked right then, the way she fit so neatly against him. It was perfect. He felt her fingers dancing up his bare skin and he watched the curious creature nestled against him. Her place? Oh, of course, clothes.
[+green "I'll take you tomorrow."] He said to her, assuring her he would make sure she had some things. He would go with her too, just make sure everything was alright.

Max was perplexed when she kissed his cheek and he wanted to chase down more from her, but it was selfish and she watched her, trying to get a read on what it was she desired, if anything.
[+green "You can cook for me one night, alright? That'll make it all better. And I'd much prefer you cooked in that little outfit because your legs are gorgeous. All of you, is gorgeous."] He said to her, his voice low with desire and he figured he ought to test the water. If it was a one time thing then so be it and he wouldn't dare force her into anything. he leaned down and brushed his lips over hers, gently and hesitantly, wrapping an arm around her to pull her closer. The worst reaction would only be if she wasn't ready but hey, he was here to take her mind off of everything.

[+green "Just- Tell me if you need anything, alright?"] He said, still hovering close to her, losing himself in those stunning eyes of hers. She may as well have been a witch with the spells she was putting him under. She was mesmerising and he wanted so much more but he had to be careful. She had gone through so much lately, all the hurt and pain and he wanted her to know that she was safe here, with him. Even if she didn't share his lust right then, he wasn't going anywhere and no one ever needed to know.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male watched her, and was a little surprised at her taking charge. That wasn't like her. Then again he didn't really know her now. When she was in his lap, her lips exploring his skin a small groan passed though his lips. Everything seemed to be falling into place, at least in his mind. The talking could wait, he knew that. This had been the best choice he had made in the last twenty-four hours. He snaked his arms around her, and lifted her up carrying her over to the dusty and broken couch, gently laying her down.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Soon both of their clothes were forgotten, and the male finally had what he's been dreaming of for years. He finally took the woman he had been head over heels for, and it felt amazing. The way their bodies seemed to mold together, and everything else was forgotten. He was just focused on the two of them, and that was it. He didn't care that they were in a really old building that could fall apart at any moment. The couch was broken, and dusty, and the whole place was just that. A place. Nothing more, nothing less.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 What seemed like minutes, turned into an hour. When the male was finally finished he stood and got dressed once more. He looked down at the woman a small smirk dancing on his face. [#01A9DB "That was fucking amazing.. That and you should be naked more often, it suits you"] he said with yet another smirk. He then zipped up his jeans, and pulled his shirt on and over his head. He then handed the woman her clothes as well. That's when Rohana crossed his mind, and he all of a sudden felt horrible.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He shook the thought away and looked towards the red head. [#01A9DB "Shall we go somewhere that's less dirty? We could head to my place, take a shower and get cleaned up. I wasn't planning on making love to you in a dirty, abandoned lodge"] he said with a small nervous laugh. He reached up and rubbed the back of his head. He was all of a sudden feeling like he was back in high school. He was nervous, and didn't really understand why. He sighed lightly when she finally got dressed. Soon they were both fully clothed once more.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He offered the woman his arm, and then walked towards the door and drew it open. [#01A9DB "Also I think your male partner, and Rohana might be wondering where you and I had gotten off too. Seeing as it's nearly evening already I think you and I should just head to my place, and call them both in the morning"] he said lightly as he started to lead her back to the car. His legs were like jello, and it was the best feeling in the world. Maybe he could talk her into staying.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Also, do you think your parents would mind if I stole you for the night?"] he asked. He might as well be a gentleman about it. Seeing as she did have a heart condition, he didn't want her parents to worry about her at all. That and he was hungry as well. He hadn't eaten anything since that morning, and it was about time they both got something in their stomachs. Once at the car he unlocked it, opened the passenger door for her, and helped her inside. He then rounded to the driver's side.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He started up the car, and looked towards her. [#01A9DB "Where would you like to eat? My treat"] he said with a small smile. It was kind of nice they had cleared the air a little bit between them. Hopefully it'll stay that way for awhile.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Even though she was hurting, she knew what she was doing. She hadn't been with a man for a while, and it felt kind of nice to have another solid body next to her. When he mentioned her making food in what she was wearing she tilted her head back and nodded. [#C4788E "I'll be more than happy too"] she said lightly. She then felt his lips on her own, and she kissed him back. She didn't care right then about what happened. It was just her and Max, nothing else existed in that moment.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She pulled back, the food and the movie forgotten as she
shifted a bit. She crawled on top of him, her legs on either side of him. [#C4788E "I want you to touch me.. Not like I'm going to break either, I've seen the way you've been looking at me, and I know you want too.. Please.."] she breathed out. She then leaned down and kissed him again. Was this the wrong time to be doing this? She didn't care. It was better than anything else she had planned. She ran her fingers lightly along his skin once more.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She deepened the kiss a little bit more, before she pulled back and sat up. She looked down at him her eyes locking on his. [#C4788E "I need you to touch me"] she breathed out. That's all she needed right then and there. She wanted to feel his hands on her, touching her in so many ways. Her body was pretty much screaming it. She didn't care if it was lust, and if tomorrow he changed his mind about having her around, she would deal with that later on. Right now nothing else mattered, just the two of them.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She ran a finger lightly along his chest and down to his stomach, and back up slowly. Her eyes locked on his the whole time. In a way she was teasing, tempting the male to do whatever he pleased with her. Either in a sexual way, or not. She didn't care. As long as she could feel those hands of his on her bare skin, she would be one happy woman. She then leaned down and trailed tiny kisses from his cheeks to his neck, and slowly back up to his lips. She couldn't stop kissing those lips of his.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He tasted amazing, and she wanted more. She needed more. She wasn't about to let this moment slip out of her fingers either. She wouldn't force him to sleep with her, because she could tell he was a gentleman and that's all that matter. She wanted nothing more than to feel his bare skin on her's.]]

Jenny was caught up in everything. Mapping out parts of Xylon she never dreamed she would, her fingers etching patterns on his decorated skin. She didn't care about the consequences of their actions, she didn't care that it qas some dusty old place that looked as though it may just fall apart in a moment. All that mattered was Xylon in that very moment, getting lost with him for an hour before finally they were both satisfied and breathless. Jenny redressed, feeling a little spaced out after everything. She looked to him when he spoke and for some insane reason, there was a blush over her face and she smiled at him. He was incredible. She fixed her clothes back in place and she took his arm.
[+purple "I think I should probably clean up."] She agreed to him with a smile.

He opened the door and Jenny got in, grateful to sit down so she could catch her breath and her legs weren't being altogether cooperative.
[+purple "My parents won't mind."] She remarked and knew her mother would be absolutely over the moon if she got even the slightest hint that the two were finally giving into their feelings. She looked to Xylon when he mentioned food and she realised she was hungry. Usually, she had to be careful about what she ate but given she was having surgery in a week or so, she figured she ought to go all out.

[+purple "How about we go to your place, get ourselves cleaned up and ill order us something in? Maybe some burgers?"] She offered, [+purple "My treat, actually, given I'm crashing at your place."] She said with a laugh. She thought for a while as they drove and looked to Xylon.
[+purple "Do they all have stories? Your tattoos."] When they were younger, Jenny and Xylon had said they would get matching tattoos, of course it had never happened and Jenny wasn't as bold as daring as Xylon. The ink suited him, he had always been a bit of a rebel that way. Jenny had been the scaredy-cat. Xylon brought out the best in her though, he always had.

She had left her hair down, since their encounter. It was a definite way of seeing each other as adults. Jenny had been taking care of herself for so long, that she had forgotten what it was liked to be loved, to be touched, to be made to feel like she mattered to someone else. It was wonderful, he was wonderful.

This woman was a minx, brought here to soley tempt him and Maxwell was a simple man. He watched her as she crawled atop him, his hands moving to her legs as he listened to her. She was tempting and he was unsure of whether this was grief talking or whether she was being real with him. She qas a mysterious creature, that was for sure and Max might have been able to deny her if it hadn't been for the kisses she bestowed upon him and her touches. He caught her hand in his, leaning up to meet her kiss. His free hand roamed her, getting rid of the oversized shirt she had borrowed.

Max pulled her close to him, fingers getting lost in her hair as he switched so she was beneath him. He would show her then. Max took his time, she wasn't some fragile being but he didn't want to rush this forbidden fruit. He was slow, gentle and loving, paying attention to every moment and mapping out her body with his hands. He didn't want to miss a single thing. What was she doing to him, this woman who he had come across across chance? He peppered her with kisses, let his hands roam her, searching for sweet spots that elicited a reaction from her. As time went on, he got a little rougher, wanting to satisfy her desire and after a while he qas spent.

Max lazily kissed up to her lips and lay St her side, catching himself. He wrapped an arm around the wonderment next to him and pulled her close, stroking her hair smugly.
[+green "I don't know where you came from, Rohana, but I don't think I ever want you to leave."] He muttered quietly as he pressed a kiss to her forehead. He meant it too, he wasn't sure if this was some elaborate prank or some twisted dream but he didn't want this woman to leave. They fit together perfectly and Max had never met a woman quite like her. He qas comfortable to remain like this, bare bodies pressed against one another, skin to skin. He pulled the blanket up and over them, content to hold her close.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When they were both tucked away in the car he looked towards her when she said she would order them food. He shrugged a bit. He wasn't about to turn down free food, that's for damn sure. [#01A9DB "If I were you I would at least let your parents know, because of your condition. They might think something happened and start calling the hospitals"] he pointed out. He knew that might be the case, but he didn't want to sound too cold about it. He wasn't ready to share his bed with her though. Even though they just had sex.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You are welcome to use the shower, and use some of the my clothes, but I will be sleeping on the couch. You get my bed. I'm not going to argue about this, and I'm not going to budge either. If you choose not to take the bed, then I will just take you home after we eat"] he said. The words were a bit cold. He was still confused about what was going on between them. He was still really hurt, and he had finally gotten what he wanted from the woman.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He just wasn't fully ready to trust her all the way. It was a huge step talking to one another, without losing their tempers and voices rising. It was baby steps. It might have been a mistake to sleep with her, but it felt amazing to say the least. Feeling her body under his, her bare skin against his. He couldn't wait for that to happen again. If it ever happened again that was. Maybe he would keep his distance for a little while to test the waters. A little while later he pulled into the driveway.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "There's a really good burger joint that delivers. The burgers are juicy as fuck, and amazing to taste as well. They also have some amazing milkshakes too if you want them"] he said. He realized she had also asked about his tattoo's. Did he really have stories behind them all? He sighed as he looked down at them, and shrugged his shoulder's a bit. No one has really asked him about them, and he honestly didn't know what to say about them. What was he supposed to say anyway? He then turned his eyes to her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "They don't. I just enjoy them. A lot of them are my own drawings, and I just went to someone I know to have them tattooed. It's pissed off my parents, and that's all I really wanted"] he said with a smirk. He loved pushing his father's buttons, and making him see that he couldn't be controlled. He knew his father wanted him to take over the family business, but he wasn't about that life at all. So that's another reason why he did what he did with the tattoo's. He shut the car off and climbed out.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He pocketed the keys, opened Jenny's door and then led her into the small house. [#01A9DB "Don't mind the mess my roommate might be home as well"] he said as he walked inside. He kicked his shoes off at the front door, and made his way towards the kitchen. He was getting more and more hungry by the minute, and couldn't wait to finally get something in his stomach.]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The way their bodies moved together, the feeling of his hands on her skin, the kisses, the gentle way he moved. It was all breath taking. She tilted her head back as she arched herself up towards him. She wanted their bodies to melt into one another, and as he started to get rougher, she did the same. She wanted to please this man more than anything in the world. When they were both satisfied, and he was laying next to her she took a breath and looked towards him. He was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As he spoke about not wanting to her go, she hoped that he meant it. She didn't know what she would do if he just up and vanished out of her life. She didn't know where he had come from either, but she was glad he had entered her life when he had. Yes it was a shitty time, but it was perfect timing. At least in her eyes it was. A small smile passed over her lips just then. [#C4788E "You are an amazing creature, and I've never met someone like you in my whole life"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "You've dropped everything just to be there for me, and no man has ever done that for me before.. Most men would leave and never look back. You, you are proving to be different"] she breathed out. She meant it too. He was a sight to behold. The sight of him nude made her heart skip a beat as well. She then shifted a bit and rested her head against his bare chest. She just hoped he didn't think that her grief was talking right now. When in reality it wasn't. She felt comfortable with him.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She had wanted what happened to happen. She never slept with someone she just met, and this was all new to her. She just hoped the feeling was the same. She pulled the sheet over them both, and then slid her arm around his waist. She snuggled against him and let her eyes drift closed. [#C4788E "You are my saving grace, so thank you"] she whispered. He already meant so much to her, and she couldn't possibly bare the thought of losing him right now. Pretty soon her body relaxed enough that she finally fell asleep.]]

Xylon took her completely off guard. He did a complete 180 on her and she stared at him. She ain't sure what to say, she judt pulled out her phone and messaged her mother. So, he would sleep with her a dusty old shack but apparently sharing a bed was too much to ask? Jenny swallowed back her emotion as she listened to him talk about his tattoos. She couldn't get angry at him but she felt like a whore. Sleeping together had been a mistake then, it had made it worse despite how incredible it was and Jenny was quiet. She got out the car and shut the door,
[+purple "You know, I just remembered I have to be somewhere tomorrow, Xy. I uh- I'll order the burgers but I'll go afterwards. Sorry."] She said to him.

She stepped inside and looked around. It was definitely the home of two men and Jenny just wanted to escape how awkward it felt, how cold Xylon was acting and she looked to him,
[+purple "I'll just, catching that shower."] She said to him, looking around for the bathroom. Once she found it, she shut the door and locked it behind her. She took a few shaky breaths. She was panicking. She put a hand over her mouth, she felt used. She usually never gave into what men wanted like that but she had thought it was different with Xylon, that it would be... Obviously it hadn't been different.

Fine. He had gotten what he wanted, his own happy ending and Jenny wouldn't throw a fit but she wouldnt stick around to be his plaything either. She turned the shower on. She didn't want to make a scene in his home, she could go quietly. She knew she would always question him now, whenever he wanted to her. Jenny scrubbed at her skin, as if she couldbwash it all away and shebstepoed out the shower, tying her hair up and shaking off her clothes. She wanted nothing from Xylon, not even to borrow his clothes.

Jenny took a few deep breaths before stepping back out of the bathroom and looking to Xylon,
[+purple "I'll uh, I'll get those burgers."] She said as she looked around for the number.
[+purple "Just tell me what you want, I'll get it while you go for a shower."] She mumbled. She was almost half tempted to just leave when he went for a shower but then she would be wrong for that. She wanted to ask him what was wrong with her, maybe she hadn't pleased him enough.  She qas avoiding looking at him, she didn't expect everything to be fixed but she expected a little warmth at least. She eyed her messages and she was tempted to text Max and ask for a pick up but he would be having dinner, she could get a cab. She deserved this, she guessed. But at least she never strung Xylon along, apparently getting between her legs was fine but sharing a bed was outnif the question. Ugh, it was awkward. She didn't know what to think and she never did well in these situations, her response was always to run.

[right [pic]]

Max stroked Rohana's bare sides, watching her and he smiled a little at her words. He leaned down and kissed her gently, nuzzling into her neck as he felt her relax and sleep. Good, she was asleep and Max rested like that was a while before he got up and put the pizza in the fridge. He got a drink and looked at Rowan's sleeping figure from the kitchen. She looked so peaceful and tranquil, like she had no worries and he knew when she woke up it would be different, that reality would set in around her like a bomb. Still, he could help her. He wanted to help her, to watch out for her.

He eyed his phone and sent a text to Jenng,
[+green [i "Hey, hope you're alright. Me and Rohana are heading to the beach tomorrow. I figure I'd ask if you want to come along, Rohana will probably ask Xylon if you guys are cool. Max x"]] He sent the text. Maybe forcing those two fools to be around each other would help them sort out their stuff and if it didn't then oh well, him and Rohana would have a great time instead. He set the glass down and headed back to bed, switching off the laptop and dimming the lights so all there was, was the sound of the ocean waves crashing against the shore. He wrapped his arms around Rohana, pulling her close to him and placing a kiss on her neck before he closed his eyes.

Morning was bright and Max squinted against the light. He got up, careful of the woman beside him and headed to the bathroom, showering quickly and exiting. He looked to Rohana, oh, they had to get her clothes today. He shrugged into a shirt and a pair of jeans.
[+green "Hey, morning."] He saidbsoftly to her as he trailed lazy kisses up her neck and to her lips.
[+green "I'll start breakfast, why don't you get that incredible body in a shower and then we'll go back to your place, pick up your things then we can hit the beach?"] He offered up, God she looked beautiful in the mornings and he might have tried his luck again with her but he refrained.

[+green "I invited Jen, told he raised bring Xylon but you ought to invite him if you want. I don't think that kid likes me very much."] Max said and leaned down, kissing her lips before going to the kitchen and starting to make up some pancakes.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male could tell she was lying and he wanted so badly to call her out on it. He kept his mouth shut for the time being and let her believe he believed her. Honestly he was scared. He couldn't believe he had finally slept with the woman, and now he was acting cold towards her. Like every other man on this planet. He wanted to fix it, but thought it would be best to keep to himself at them moment. He watched as she found the bathroom and ducked inside. He sighed lightly as he stood there.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He felt bad, and honestly he wanted to take it all back. He listened to the water running and apart of him wanted to go and join her. He knew that would only make matter's worse. He was kicking himself, and he all of a sudden hated himself as well. He had made a mistake just then. He just didn't want her feeling uncomfortable. Yes he had made love to her in a dusty, run down old place. Which it should have been done in his bed to start with. He sighed as he tried to figure out what to do.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He moved into the kitchen and made some tea as he waited for Jenny to join him. That's when he heard her voice and he looked up towards her. He was kind of upset she wasn't wearing his clothes and he took a breath and spoke. [#01A9DB "I know you don't have anything tomorrow. I know when you lie to me Jenny"] he said his voice a tad colder than it should have been. He wasn't going to tell her what he wanted at the moment. His urge was coming back all of a sudden.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Without saying another word he walked over, scooped her up into his arms and carried her to his room. He kicked the door closed and locked it. He walked over and put her onto his bed, and then put a chair under the knob. [#01A9DB "That and you are staying here tonight. I'm not going to take no for an answer. The food can wait for the time being. If anything I'll make you something"] he said. She wanted to share a bed with him? So be it. He would make it that way.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I can't believe you put those dirty clothes back onto your body as well. I know you better than that"] he said as he pulled out a pair of his boxer shorts and t-shirts. He then set them on the desk he had in his room. He then pulled his own shirt up and over his head, and worked on getting his jeans dropped as well. He stood there in nothing but his boxers, his eyes filling with need once more. He needed her, and he wasn't about to let her slip away like he knew she wanted too.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He walked over and took her phone out of her hands and set it aside. [#01A9DB "You want to share a bed? Fine, we should have done this in the first place instead of that old place"] he breathed out. He hurried and got her out of her dirty clothes, and threw them aside. He then helped lay her back, and he climbed on top of her. He looked down at her, the need getting stronger. He wasn't about to let this woman leave. There's no way in hell. He leaned down and kissed her gently.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You've always been mine Jenny."] he breathed out. He meant it too. He then proved that she was his again. He wasn't about to lose that's for damn sure.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That night Rohana didn't even dream. It had been the best sleep she had in a long while. It was nice waking up in the middle of the night to have a pair of arms around her, and she felt safe. For the first time in her life she felt utterly safe. Before long she heard Max's voice and felt his lips on her neck, and then her lips. The thought of food made her stomach growl. She smiled a little bit as she watched the male leave the room. She streached her arms over her head and let out a small groan.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She was still fully nude, and apart of her wished she had grabbed the male back into bed. She slid the blankets off and made her way to the bathroom. She kept the door open and took a quick shower. She then remembered what he had said the night before, of her being in his shirts. When she was done and dried off she found another one of his shirts and slipped it on over her head. She found her panties and slid those on as well. Just to play it safe. She then made her way into the kitchen.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Those smell amazing"] she said lightly as she came up behind him, sliding her arms around his waist and resting her head against his back. It was nice waking up to this. She still wanted to be in bed though exploring every inch of him. She then rolled her eyes as she thought of Jenny and Xylon joining them today. Since he had already mentioned it to Jenny, she wouldn't bother Xy with it. She kissed the male's shoulder before walking to the fridge and opened it.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She pulled out a water bottle and twisted off the cap. She took a long drink from the bottle before moving over to the table and sat down. She watched them male with silent eyes. She felt like she was dreaming. [#C4788E "So I was thinking, maybe after the beach we could go for a drive? Up into the mountains for a little while today. I want to go to daddy's favorite spot"] she said softly. It would hurt going there, but she would have her notebook with her and planning the funeral as well.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "If you don't want too that fine as well. I just feel like I need to be there to plan everything for him. I know that sounds odd.. I'm sorry"] she said as she bit her lip to stop herself from speaking more. She felt like a sad little girl again. She reached for the bottle once more and took another sip. The next couple of days was going to be hard, but at least she wasn't alone. She had someone to take her mind off of everything, that and he was amazing in bed. She would take advantage of that more often.]]

Jenny watched Xylon, she ought to have known he wouldn't buy her lies but she had really hoped. She didn't get a chance to retort, to tell him to fuck off and leave her alone. He had placed her on the bed, locked them both in. He was giving her what he wanted, but on his conditions and it made Jenny stubborn.
[+purple "Xy, I don't know what you think you're playing at but-"] She was cut off as he started to take her clothes off. She tried to hold her ground but she couldn't. His words drove her insane, she was his and she always had been. No one would ever come close to Xylon and he proved his point, making his mark upon her once more, leaving her a quivering and breathless lump under the blankets. He was incredible and she watched him for a moment, catching her breath.

[+purple "You know you're not playing fair."] She murmured, lips trailing up his neck. She got up, not bothered about her form in front of him and she reached over reform his shirt and boxers, pulling them on and eyeing herself over. She was doing her best to act tough, to take some control of the situation because right then, Xylon was in control and she hated it. He could act so cold towards her, like he didn't care and she was so unsure where they stood. She couldn't deny the tremble in her legs though as she stood at the end of the bed in his shirt and boxers, her red hair a bit of a mess. She sat on the edge of the bed and found her phone, ordering some burgers and eyeing the text from Max. She glanced to Xylon and bit her lip. Going to the beach sounded nice but... they were still working stuff out, it might be awkward. 
[+purple "Max and Rohana invited us to the beach tomorrow."] She said and glanced to Xylon, crossing her smooth legs over and eyeing him over.
[+purple "I don't think we should go tomorrow. I want to but- There's a lot going on here, isn't there?"] She said to him. All it would take was for one of them to lose their temper and it would be all out warfare. Max was with Rohana? Jenny paused and figured maybe they were just being friendly. The burgers arrived and Jenny ate a little,
[+purple "You're not taking the couch."] She said to Xylon with a smirk as she got back into bed and she realised he didn't have to love her forever, judt until her surgery, or the next hospital appointment because she doubted he'd want her after that and if something did happen then... He'd be free.  It didn't take long for Jenny to fall asleep under the blankets.

[right [pic]]

Max grubbed as he felt a kiss to his shoulder and he looked over to Rohana was she got some water. She seemed so at home already and she looked stunning with her legs peeking out like that. He turned the heat down and leaned  on the counter to watch her.
[+purple "Whatever you want, Rohana."] He said softly to her. Whatever she needed to do, to cope, he would help. He approached and wrapped his arms around her waist, pulling her close and stealing a kiss from her lips. She was tempting all over again and he thought about showering with her maybe. He trailed his kisses down to her neck and figured the shower was a long distance away.

Instead, he pulled the woman up, letting her wrap her legs around him. This was his house, his woman. He made short work of her clothes, tugging them off and leaving them on the kitchen floor as he pressed her against the kitchen counter. He explored her body again, lavishing it in the cold light of day as he peppered her with delicate kisses. When they were both satisfied, he pulled her close, breathing hard and burying his face in her neck. She was gorgeous and he wanted to worship her, endlessly.

[+purple "Hungry now?"] He said as he pulled on his clothes and chuckled some, rather smug with himself and acting like the cat who got the cream. He washed up and then plated up some pancakes.
[+purple "As much as I love the view, we ought to get you some clothes from your place."] He checked his phone, Jenny hadn't responded so he figured she wasn't coming, oh well, a day with Rohana would be just perfect too. He sat down and ate some of the pancakes, watching Rohana. She had been through a lot and he wanted to do his best to make her happy right then. 
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male knew he wasn't playing fair, because she wasn't playing fair either. When they were done pleasing one another he watched as she moved the chair away from under the door knob and unlocked the door to go and get the food. He shrugged a bit, surprised she had even put on his [i dirty] clothes. Sometimes he wondered if she was fully there, or if she was thinking straight. When she came back with the food he leaned up on his elbows and shook his head a bit. He wasn't going to budge on this.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "There's things I need to work out, and I'm not gonna keep you up. That's why I'll be sleeping on the couch. Unlike you I'm not lying"] he said lightly. Sometimes his words came out more harsh than he wanted them. He just wanted to make a point at the moment. He did have a lot of sketches he needed to done, and he would be up well into the night. He knew she didn't have anywhere else to be, and he was making it a point to be a gentleman about it. Even if she wasn't happy about it.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You are welcome to get some clean clothes, instead of wearing my dirty ones. Because honestly that's kind of weirding me out, I've been wearing those all day and you just slip into them. Don't get me wrong you look amazing in them, just not when they are dirty"] he said as he took one of the burgers and unwrapped it. He took a bite and chewed slowly. He couldn't help but wonder when her doctor's appointments were. Maybe he could talk her mother into letting him take her, instead of her. Then again her mother needed to be there too.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He swallowed the bite he had in his mouth and looked towards her. [#01A9DB "So your next appointment I'm going to go with you. I don't care if you don't want me there, I have a right to know what's going on, and what's going to happen"] he said matter of factly. He wasn't going to let her go through this alone. It was a lot to take on, and her parents would need the help. He knew her mother would be coming to him a lot for help as well.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That's when she mentioned her friend invited them to the beach tomorrow. He shook his head lightly. [#01A9DB "I agree, that and with me not really sleeping much tonight I don't think I would be very good company"] he admitted. He made a note to message Rohana. At least he knew she was in good hands. At least he hoped she was. She needed a good guy around. He took another bite and chewed slowly looking Jenny up and down. Fuck she was beautiful. She was stubborn too, and it sometimes pissed him off.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I will tell you now, if you don't stay in here tonight while I'm working, I won't offer my bed to you again for a while, and I won't be able to please you for a while either. When I'm drawing I need to be alone, and it needs to be somewhat quiet as well. I don't need you around distracting me"] he said licking his lips. He was thinking about getting another fuck in before shutting himself out of the room for the night though. Either that, or getting her into the shower again. He set the food aside.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You are welcome to watch whatever you want as well. Just keep the volume down is all I ask"] he said lightly as he reached over and slid his hand under her ass and gave it a firm squeeze. God he wanted her fully naked again. He would wait though. He was starving, and he wanted to make sure she would follow his simple instructions instead of running away like she had tried too a little while ago.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When she felt the man's arms wrap around her waist, and lifted her up she wrapped her legs around his waist. Soon their clothes were in a heap, and he was going at it again. The noises she made, the way her body reacted to his touch, his kisses, everything. She didn't want it to end. She didn't want him thinking this was all she wanted from him either. When they were both finished once more, she slipped his shirt back on over her head and she smiled lightly towards him. God he was amazing, and quite the sight too.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The smell of pancakes filled her nose and she made her way to the table once more, and took the plate he handed her. [#C4788E "These smell amazing"] she said, her mouth watering at the sight. When he mentioned getting some things from her house she nodded lightly as she took a bite. Damn he was good in bed, and he was a good cook as well. She couldn't help but wonder if he learned that from his mother, or someone else in his family. She ate for a little bit before pushing the plate away.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I say we head to my place, gather up some of my things and then come back here. We can either continue what we've been doing, exploring each other in more ways than one, or hit the beach. I'm game for either one. I just know I'm going to need another shower, and this time I want you with me"] she breathed out. Her cheeks flushed a deep shade of pink at the end. She was surprised at how quickly they had jumped into this. Yes she hurt, but the pain was less with him around.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Also, I don't want you thinking that I'm wanting you touching me the way you have been is because of the pain. That's not it at all. Just something about you is driving me insane, and I like the way you make me feel. I know you and I just met yesterday, and we've already slept together twice, but I hope something more comes of this.. I really do.. You honestly don't know how happy I am to have you around right now. It's going to be rough, but I don't think it's going to be as rough with you"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Yes you are amazing in the sex department, but there's something more to you as well. I want to get to know the most intimate parts of you. I want to get into that mind of yours and hear what you are thinking. Thank you for everything so far"] she breathed out. She meant every word of it too. She finished the pancakes on the plate and she stood to clean up the kitchen. She felt like she was home when she was around the male, and that was one of the best feelings.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Let's get dressed and head out before I change my mind"] she said lightly looking towards him. She walked over and took his face in her hands and kissed him deeply. She pulled back and headed back towards his bedroom to get changed. Her head was spinning, and her heart was hammering inside of her chest. This was a whole new world to her, and she couldn't wait to explore it more with the male.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny still felt uncomfortable with the idea that he wasn't going to share her bed and she looked down at herself. She must have picked up the wrong clothes and she reached over to pick up the clean clothes Xylon had given her and she watched him. Of course he was an artist, he had the passionate drive, that creative flair and she watched him as she finished her burger.
[+purple "Alrighr, I'm not going anywhere."] It was late anyway and she sighed softly. She grinned when he gave her a squeeze and she looked to the door,
[+purple "Go on, go do your work. My next doctors appointment is tomorrow afternoon, not until later though. You can come... if you really want to."] She mumbled. Her mother would probably want an afternoon with her father anyway.

Jenny wasn't shy about changing into the clean clothes, cursing herself for picking up the wrong ones and she tied her hair up into a messy bun, slinking back into the bed and looking to Xylon with a smirk,
[+purple "See? I'm comfortable. I'm not going anywhere."] She promised him and leaned back. She felt content anyway, she'd had a meal, been satisfied and she sank down in the blankets. It still felt weird not sharing an actual bed with Xylon and she hoped he didn't regret it in the morning. Or after the hospital appointment, it could be a lot to cope with.

Jenny was asleep before she could really resist it and fir once it wasn't nightmares or worries about the upcoming surgery. She knew it could come sooner, they were just waiting on a call to confirm when it would all be happening. Heart surgery, it was no small thing. She didn't think about it when she was with Xylon though, he just made her forget. They had wasted so much time.

When morning came around, she woke with a start, reaching up to rub at her eyes and she took a moment to come to terms with everything. She qas in Xylon's bed, in his house. Right, that made sense. Jenny got up, shifting to go and wash up properly, she exited Xylon's room, somewhat in a daze, forgetting the possibility of a roommate and she started to make herself a tea. She rummaged in her bag for her medication and eyed the pill packets. It was a lot of medicine but it kept her going. She leaned on the counter and stifled a yawn, she never was much of a morning person, it took her a while to wake up.

[right [pic]]

This girl was driving him wild. It ain't even funny, he had never fallen so hard and quick for anyone and he watched the little minx as she spoke. He understood what she qas saying and although part him still believed that this was due to grief, he figured he would stick around until she didn't want him. Max leaned into her kiss and sighed out as she went upstairs. What was she doing to him? He cleaned up and found a shirt, pulling it on and figuring they coukd go to her place and get her clothes. He wasn't sure what he wanted to do when he got back, mapping out more of her sounded like a great idea but so did relaxing in the sand and seeing the ocean breeze turn her cheeks pink.

[+purple "C'mon, sooner we get this done the sooner I can decide what I want to do with you."] He called and chuckled as he opened the car door for her. He got in and made sure the drive was a slow and nice one, right along the beachfront before he turned and he vaguely remembered how to get to her home. There was police tape everywhere and Max looked to Rohana.
[+purple " If it's too much, I can take you down to the mall, Ro. We can just get you something there, alright?"] He said to her softly. He figured she would want to brave it out, she was a strong woman and he got out the car. Maybe they ought to slow things down a little today, let her have some time to grieve and she wanted to start planning a funeral. Xylon was going to kill him if he found out he'd been taking advantage of this girl whilst her father was barely cold.

Better Xylon and Jenny just didn't find out for now, then.

Max help Rohana's hand in his, pressing a kiss to her cheek,
[+purple "Just say the word if it gets too much."] He said but he vowed to keep an eye on her as well because he wasn't sure Rohana would tell him. She wanted to be strong and Max knew she was, but this had been something deeply traumatic for her. He didn't think she should go through it alone and he certainly understood if it was too much. The officer at the front let them in once he understood they were just picking up clothes and such. Max wrapped an arm around Rohana's waist and kept her close to him, as if he could protect her from her own grief.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon smirked a bit watching as she changed and then slipped back into the bed. He felt better knowing that she wasn't going anywhere. He was getting tired of her lying to him though. Or at least trying to lie to him. He felt like he couldn't really trust her when that happened. He had every right to feel that way as well. It wasn't every day that he was able to try and fix things with his childhood best friend. He let out a small sigh as he gathered up his things and slipped out of the room.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He shut the door behind him and stood there a moment longer. He was debating on just slipping into the bed with her, and forgetting about his work for the night. He knew that wasn't going to happen either. He had a lot to deal with, and his mind was spinning. He wouldn't be able to sleep if he didn't do something about it. He made his way into the living room and turned on the lamp and put his things onto the coffee table. He then pulled his phone out and scrolled to Rohana's name.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He hurried and sent her a quick message. [#01A9DB [i I know it's late, and I haven't been a good friend to you today. I hope you are doing okay, and when I see you next there's something I have to tell you. Jenny told me about the beach trip tomorrow, and I don't think we will be coming. Her and I still have a lot to work on ourselves, and I feel like we need to have the time together to figure it out. I love you Rohana, don't forget that. Xoxo Xy-Bear.]] He then hit send.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He knew that she would get the message in the morning, and he didn't want her thinking he had forgotten about her. When in reality he had been worried about her all day, but he had to focus on fixing everything with Jenny. That's the most important thing at the moment. He let out a small sigh as he reached for his sketch pad and pulled it into his lap. He opened it to a fresh page and started working on a new sketch for a client. The drawing seemed to take his mind off of everything.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [center [b [i The Next Morning.]]]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male didn't realize he had fallen asleep the night before, and when he jerked awake his heart was pounding. At first he didn't know why he was in the living room, until the memories of the day before hit him. Jenny was in his apartment, in his bed, wearing his clothes. Something he'd dreamed about for ages. He never thought it would happen, and ow that it had he hoped it would stay that way. He sighed lightly as he ran a hand over his face.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That's when he heard small footsteps and he spotted Jenny's red hair going into the kitchen. He knew she would be making some tea. He laid there a moment longer before he finally put his pad onto the coffee table, and he walked into the kitchen. He smirked lightly as he walked up behind her, and wrapped his arms around her waist pulling her against him. [#01A9DB "I'm surprised you are still here"] he said as he buried his nose into her hair. God she smelled amazing, and looked amazing as well. He was lucky at the moment.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I didn't answer your question about taking you to the doctor, I will be more than happy too. I'll take you to your place first so you can get a change of clothes as well, and then I'll go with you"] he said lightly. It kind of made him nervous to be going with her to something like that, but at least she was willing to let him come with her. That's all that mattered to him. They were slowly building that trust again, and he knew it would take awhile, but at least they were both trying.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When her home came into view her heart dropped into her stomach. She wanted nothing more than to turn around and leave. It was going to be hell going in there and not hearing her father's voice, or his favorite music playing. When Max shut the car off and helped her out, she kept her hand in his and looked up at him. She had to do this, it was better this way for right now. She took a breath and walked towards the front door. [b "I'm sorry, but you can't be here"] said the officer standing there.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Yes I can. This is my home, and honestly you shouldn't be here. None of you should be. I know it's the place where my father killed himself, but it's still my home. I want you gone"] she said her voice cracking a little bit. The officer looked at Rohana and his eyes softened a bit. [b "I'm sorry about your loss Ma'am, but we are making sure no looters come around"] he said as he pushed the door open and let them inside. The female seemed to under stand that a little bit.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She took a breath and let Max's hand go. [#C4788E "Stay here, I'll be down in a little bit"] she said lightly. She stood and pressed her lips to his cheek lightly. She needed to do this part alone. She slowly started to climb the stairs to the second floor. Her eyes found her father's room and she moved towards it slowly. There was some tape covering the doorway, and she ripped it down. She was going to hunt the chief down and tell him she wanted them gone. This was still her home, and she had that right to do it.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She walked into her father's room and went straight to his closet. She grabbed some of his sweatshirts, and sweats and lifted them to her face. She took in the smell and she fell to the floor sobbing. [#C4788E "I'm so sorry I couldn't save you.."] she breathed out. The sobs were getting worse and it was getting hard to catch her breath. It took her a couple of minutes to finally climbed to her feet. On her way back out she grabbed her father's picture and carried the items to her room.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She slipped inside and found her duffle bag. She placed the three items on her bed as she opened her drawers and grabbed clothes. She grabbed panties, bras, socks, jeans, t-shirts, and whatever else she would need for the time being. She shoved everything into the bag. She then opened her closet and found her favorite sunflower dress and packed that as well, along with some of her shoes. She then went to the bathroom and packed up her makeup bag, tooth brush, tooth paste, brush and other things from inside the bathroom as well.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She grabbed her notebooks, and a couple other things of her father's. She put the gold locket her father had given her a couple of weeks ago around her neck. She then picked up her bags and shut the light off and made her way back downstairs to where Max was waiting. [#C4788E "Let's go.."] she said softly as she walked out the front door. She went to the truck and opened the door for herself and climbed inside. She put her bags in her lap and looked out the window, her heart shattering inside of her chest.]]

Jenny smile softly when she felt Xylon wrap his arms around her from behind. She laughed softly at his words and leaned back into him,
[+purple "Well, I did steal your bed for the night, it would be rude to just leave."] She teased softly and listened to him speak about going to her appointment. She wasn't sure he was ready to hear everything and understand what she was bound to go through but if he really wanted her, if he would really accept her for everything she was. Maybe he would finally understand why she couldn't tell him all that time ago. She just hummed a little.
[+purple "Yeah, of course."] She agreed and she giggled, leaning her head back, pressing her lips to his cheek.

[+purple "Tea first though, or coffee?"] She offered him with a soft smile painted on her lips as she settled down and watched him for a moment.
[+purple "Xy, don't take this the wrong way and I get that we're not uh, well... we are still figuring everything out, but are you ready for this? These appointments are always a bit... doom and gloom and I just got you back- I don't want to scare you off."] She explained to him. She didn't want to lose him, this surgery wasn't a small thing, she knew the risks, she had been told them for a year straight and usually she had to undergo blood tests and everything else. Not to mention she was bound to have a whacking great scar on her chest after the surgery. It was strange that she felt so self conscious about it all.

At least he was willing to come and check it out, to understand what was going on and she knew it was going to be rough. She couldn't expect them to simply fall back into how they were. She hadnhurt Xylon, he had hurt her and she knew it was going to be tricky for them both to get over everything but she really did believe that her feelings for him outweighed everything else.

Max was reluctant to leave Rohana go alone but he just nodded and folded his arms. He figured he should wait in the car andbhe retreated, keeping the car warm for her coming back and just turned the radio up. He knew that Rohana was a strong woman but she had to have her limits. He drummed his fingers on the steering wheel, worried as he glanced to the house now and then and busied himself with his phone. Just when he was about to get out and go in, Rohana appeared with some things and he watched her for a moment.

Max nodded and figured they should head back to his place. He started driving and glanced to her. He knew she wasn't okay, he didn't need to ask and he reached out and gave her hand a squeeze as he pulled into his drive.
[+green "Come on, let's get your things put away then we can decide what we want to do, okay?"] He said, he didn't want to tell her what to do or push her.  He figured that if she just wanted to watch movies again and eat some food then they could do that but if she still wanted to go to the beach then that was okay too. He helped her inside with some things.

[+green "You can use the closet if you like, I don't have much."] He murmured and watched her.  He was worried about her and he almost wanted to get Xylon over here but he also didn't want to admit defeat on keeping Rohana happy. He leaned over and kissed the top of her head, inhaling her scent for a moment and he nuzzled her.
[+green "We don't have to go out today, we can stay in if you want? I'm sure we can play some games or something."] He murmured. He wanted her to know she had options. They could go to the spot she mentioned that looked over the beach to plan her fathers funeral.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Was he really ready for something like this? Could he handle the news he was about to get from this doctor's appointment? No he wasn't. Was he willing to try and make it work for Jenny? Of course. Even though he had been through hell and back he would still give everything up for her. He would do anything and everything for the woman before him. Yes they were still on a rocky path, but if they were both willing to make it work, then it would work. Or at least he hoped it would anyway.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When she offered tea of coffee, he shook his head.
[#01A9DB "I don't want a lot of caffeine at the moment. I mean I might need it afterwards, but right now I want a somewhat clear mind with going"] he admitted. He wasn't really denying her anything, but at the same time he was. Did he want her having something like that in her body right now? Would it affect anything? He doubted it, but still made whatever she wanted to have. The silence between them was getting on his nerves, and he didn't like it at all.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He made he breakfast and when he was done he finally sat down and locked his eyes on her. The plates placed in front of them. He took a breath and started to speak. [#01A9DB "I know you and I are on a rocky road right now, and honestly you aren't going to scare me off. What I'm more worried about is you dipping like you did back when I first told you my feelings. I understand a little bit about why you did, but not fully okay with it. I don't think I ever will be"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Honestly there's always going to be a part of myself that won't fully trust you again. Even if we work things out, I will always have that guard up about if you are lying to me, or if you are keeping something from me. You [i never] had to worry about that with me. I was always truthful, and open with you. I was always there for you, and I always will be. I just wish you would have done the same thing for me, instead of keeping me in the dark like you did."]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "It honestly tore me apart, and it still is. I feel like I'm not enough for you to fully trust me. Yes we both have shit to work on, but I feel like you have to be the one to prove that you mean what you say"] he said lightly. He then trailed off and looked down at his plate. He all of a sudden wasn't hungry. The topic was heavy, he was hurt and his heart felt like it was shattering once more. At least he was being honest with her, and he just hoped she would be honest with him.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When they were back at his place, and inside the male offered the closet for her and she felt her heart melt. He was so gentle with her, and she was so cold and distant. She wasn't meaning to shut him out, it was just a really hard time for her at the moment. Did she want to stay inside all day? No. She needed the fresh air, and the beach sounded nice as well. When her things were put away, and the duffle back tucked away in the closet she sat on the edge of the bed.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Going out might help take my mind off of everything. I'll have plenty of time to plan daddy's funeral. Right now I don't want to be cooped up. The fresh air, and the water might be a good relaxing time honestly"] she admitted. She then stood and walked over to the male. She slid her arms around his waist, and looked up towards him. He was so handsome, and it took her breath away looking up at the male. She wished they hadn't met the way they had. It tore her apart in a way.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I know it was a shitty way of getting to know one another, and to sleep together, but I'm glad it happened the way it had. Because I wouldn't have such a handsome stranger doting over me, and protecting me. It means a lot that you are doing everything you can. I know it's going to be hard, but as long as I know you'll be around to help pick up the pieces, I think I'll manage"] she said lightly. She meant it too. He already meant so much to her, that it hurt a bit.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon was the only one that tore down her walls when they first met, and now here's Maxwell. He pretty much came in, swept her off her feet, and made her feel things she hadn't felt in a long time. She smiled a little bit as she slid her hands into the back pockets of his jeans. [#C4788E "That, and I kind of want to see you in swim trunks anyway"] she said with a small teasing note in her voice. She kept her hands in his back pockets, as she rested her head against his chest.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 This honestly felt right on so many levels. He might not think it was, but to her it meant the world. She felt like she was home, and she barely knew the man she was standing with. They had plenty of time to get to know one another, and right now she needed his arms around her, and to hear that he wasn't going to leave her behind like everyone else in her life had.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny watched Xylon, trying to gauge his mood. He was hot and cold right then and she was unsure of where she stood with him most of the time. It was unnerving for her. She only wanted some toast and water, she never ate much before these things but she had to eat otherwise the doctors would have a field day in berating her. She watched as Xylon spoke, picking at her toast. Of course, she felt guilty but now she wasn't sure if she wanted to continue any of this with Xylon if all he was going to do was hold her teenage self accountable and never be able to trust her. Jenny pushed her plate away when she was done.

[+purple "I don't know what I can do to prove to you anything. But if you're not ever going to trust me, Xy, then we need to stop now."] She remarked to him, it stung to say and she wasn't sure what else he wanted from her. She was letting him come to the appointment, something that embarrassed her, made her feel weak in front of the strongest person she knew. She got to her feet and found some clothes, pulling them on and looking to her bag as she rummaged through.
[+purple "What do you want? Do you really not understand that I never wanted to be weak in front of you? Look-"] She pulled out the pill box and set it on the counter before him, [+purple "This is what it is, Xy. It's medication, it's endless pills for the rest of my life, it's being terrified that something is going to go wrong and I might just drop dead one day. Even with the surgery, what if it goes wrong? What if I've brought you into this and all you're going to feel is grief afterwards?"] Surely some part of him understood what she was saying. She didn't want him to be hurt at the end of that and she had thought she was sparing him.

[+purple "Xy, I could die. I never wanted you to deal with any of that, I wanted you to live your lie and I'm sorry I made the wrong call but if you won't trust me that I'm being honest with you, if you won't understand what I was trying to do then, what are we even doing?"] She said to him quietly and sank into a chair, pulling on her shoes.
[+purple "If you want to be part of this, then I won't stop you. I'll let you see me in that hospital, I'll let you hold my hand before I go into surgery and after, if I'm lucky, you'll be there when I wake up and I need help and my body is scarred beyond all recognition. But I wanted to spare you that when we were young, I was stupid, I was idiotic and I will never forgive myself for it."] She murmured and sighed.

[right [pic]]

Max watched her with soft eyes, she was like a flightless bird right then. He couldn't comprehend what she had been through and all he could do was be there to support her when it was needed. He smirked at her and wrapped his arms around her, pulling her close and burying his nose in her hair. He didn't care how they had met, he didn't care how long they had known each other either, he just wanted to hold her close and feel her breathing. He pressed a kiss to the top of her head and sighed out contently. She was a wonderful little creature that he wanted to hide away from the world in some ways.

[+green "Whatever you want, alright?"] He assured her softly and chuckled when she mentioned seeing him swim trunks. If that was the case then it meant he would see her in a bathing suit and he grinned smugly at the thought.
[+green "Well, go make yourself ready for the beach then, I'll even get you an ice cream."] He teased and caught her lips with his for a moment. He fully intended to have his wicked way with her later on but it could wait for now. He wanted to keep her occupied. He wandered through to the bedroom and found some swimming trunks, changing into them and shrugging on a loose shirt with some bold prints on it as he gathered some towels.

[+green "Come on, Missy."] He said as he headed through to the side door and out, almost immediately on the beach. It was warm with a slight breeze and he set up their own little area with some towels and unfolded his deck chairs. He was lucky to have this place with this view, Jenny had always been incredibly jealous and he cursed when he remembered she had a hospital appointment that day. He pulled out his phone and sent her a quick message, wishing her luck and to let him know how it went. He wasn't as close to her as Xylon was and he also didn't want Rohana feeling like she was second best to anyone but he did worry about Jenny, heart surgery was no small thing.

He flicked on a small radio, portable and battery operated no less and got settled on a deck chair, looking back to the house and waiting to see Rohana.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The male was kind of surprised with her reply. Was he making a mistake? He was being straight up honest with her, something that he was taught from a really young age, and she was acting like a child about it? What she wanted to spare him from all of this? He was trying to make it clear at what he wanted. She just wasn't seeing it. He sighed and let her go on. When she showed him the pill bottles he brushed it off. [#01A9DB "I don't give a rats ass about those damn pills"] he snapped back.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I'm not doing this out of pity. I thought you wanted me to be honest with you. So I was honest in telling you that I don't fully trust you right now, you are acting like a child about all of it. I understand what's happening I really fucking do. More than you even realize. When you lie to some like you did, instead of [i trusting] them like you were supposed to, sometimes a person loses a little bit of that trust for the other person. I understand it's a scary time"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "You shouldn't have treated me like I was a child, and you should have fucking told me about all of this! I know you could easily drop dead which scares the living shit out of me. I just want you to [i trust] me like I trusted you. I want that back, I want what you and I had back. It'll be a work in progress, and your surgery is throwing a small wrench in things, but if you honestly want this to work as much as I do, then you and I need to be on the same page"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "If you don't want me being honest with you, then tell me right here and now. I'll take you to your appointment, and after that you and I can be done. Since that's pretty much what you are hinting at. I'm trying here Jenny, I really fucking am, but you aren't seeing it at all"] he said. The pain in his voice showing. He wasn't trying to be weak. He just wanted to get a point across. Because if he had lied to her, she would have lost a little bit of trust in him.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He then kept his mouth shut as he cleaned up the kitchen, and put everything away. He put the dishes into the dishwasher and started it. He then went and grabbed his shoes, and slid them on. He wasn't going to say anything more. If she didn't want to see where he was coming from, then so be it. It wasn't worth trying to fix. He then grabbed his car keys and made his way out the the car, and started it up. He slid behind the wheel and waited for her to join him.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 A small smile passed over her lips as he mentioned ice cream. She felt like a five year old all over again. Which wasn't a bad thing. When he was gone, she went into the bedroom and found her things that weren't unpacked fully yet. She then found a light blue bikini with white polka dots, and she slipped out of her clothes and into the small swimsuit. It didn't really leave much to the thought process either. When she was done she grabbed her phone and sent Xylon a quick text message seeing if he was okay.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She knew the two of them would meet up sooner or later and talk about everything that's been going on. Right now though, she had a man waiting on the beach for her. She grabbed a couple of towels and her book just in case. She then slipped on a pair of flip flops and walked out of the house and onto the beach. Now this was the life she had always wanted. A home on the beach. She had dreamed of something like this since she was a child, and it never happened for her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She made her way towards where Max was sitting and she tossed a towel at him. [#C4788E "I think you forgot these"] she said with a small laugh. She was slowly unwinding from the stress she's been under the last couple of days. She then laid her own towel onto the chair, and slid the flip flops off and sat down. She placed her book on the ground beside her and streached her legs out. The feeling of the sun on her skin was amazing. She leaned her head back and closed her eyes enjoying the warmth for a moment.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She then opened her eyes and looked towards the male. [#C4788E "So I have to ask, why do you think it's so hard on Xylon and Jenny right now? Has she told you what happened between them in High School?"] she asked lightly. Xylon had told her everything, and wondered if Max knew about all of it as well. She wasn't trying to talk bad about the other two she was just curious if Jenny told him everything. She looked him over and bit her lip lightly. Maybe it was a bad idea coming here.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Seeing him in those swimming trunks was doing something to her. She bent one of her legs slightly before looking back out towards the water. The feeling of the sun on her skin, listening to the waves crashing against the shore, the radio playing, this was all perfect. At least she thought it was. She pushed everything else from her mind for the time being, focusing on the here and now.]]
Nullification     1y ago

God he was a nightmare sometimes. Jenny watched him in silence and shook her head a little. Maybe he would understand more at the appointment why she hadn't told him anything and she just followed him out of the house and into the car, making sure she had all her things. She looked out the window and watched the streets go past, she felt defeated, this entire debacle with her heart made her feel weak and she glanced over him.
[+purple "I'm sorry, Xy."] She mumbled to him, [+purple "This is all really new to me and I'm scared."] She remarked, she hated to admit she was feeling scared, especially to Xylon.

[+purple "I'll just be a second."] She said to Xylon as she got out when they got to her place and she moved into her house, thankfully her parents seemed to be out and she changed her clothes and freshened up. She didn't bother with make-up but tied her hair up in a bun and ducked back out.
[+purple "I dunno how long the appointment will take, it's just surgery talk."] She muttered and gave Xylon a few directions, feeling awkward and she eyed the hospital doors. She didn't want to do this.

She swallowed back her fear and got out the car, looking to Xylon and then the hospital. She didn't know what to say and she just moved inside, the receptionist greeting with a smile.
[b "Room ten, doll."] She said and gestured and Jenny nodded to her before heading down the hallways and knocking on the door.
[b "Ah, Jenny! Come in, and who's this?"] The doctor greeted and looked to Xylon.
[+purple "Xylon, he's a friend."] She mumbled and sat in the chair.

[b "Right, well, you know you've been on the waiting list for surgery for a while now. The good news is our cardiosurgeon has a space tomorrow afternoon."] The doctor remarked and Jenny furrowed her brow,
[+purple "Wait, that soon?"] She said and looked to Xylon, perplexed. She was bewildered and the doctor gave her a moment to process.
[b "We have a bed ready for you, for overnight. A private room, it has a television and of course you can have visitors, we even allow takeouts and snacks and if uh.. your friend here wants to stay the night."] He said and she shook her head, still processing.
[+purple "That's really soon- I don't know...."] Jenny said to him and the doctor gave an understanding smile to her.

Jenny looked away and the doctor gave her some time to process everything going on. He left them in the quiet room and Jenny looked to Xylon,
[+purple "Sorry- I didn't think it would be this soon."] She mumbled, taking a few deep breaths and suddenly being angry and awkward with Xylon didn't matter so much in the grand scheme of things. She understood if he freaked out, she understood if he wanted to leave and she wanted him to know that it was alright. She was scared too, terrified in fact. She hadn't prepared for an overnight stay and she figured she'd have to go home and pack some things up to keep her amused. It wasn't like she would ask Xylon to spend the night in a hospital room with her, he had a life now.

[right [pic]]

Max watched Rohana join him, like some goddess gracing him with her presence and he eyed over her, she looked divine and he cleared his throat as she settled down and he let his eyes roam over her. He snapped back to reality at her words and he shrugged,
[+green "She broke his heart, she's sick. He didn't know, she's getting heart surgery and stuff. I can understand Xylon being upset but Jen has beat herself up for years over it. I only knew because I had to take her to hospital a couple times."] He remarked and looked over at Rohana.

[+green "I figure it must be difficult for her too, seeing you and Xylon being so close. Hell, I thought you were dating at first."] He said with a chuckle. He figured that Xylon was fiercely protective of Rohana and he'd likely have to prove he was worth her or something to him but Max was confident.
[+green "He seems like a nice guy."] He remarked as an afterthought, he must have been for Jenny to be so head over heels for him and Max chuckled a little,
[+green "Jen got drunk once, you should have heard her. All she spoke about was Xylon. I didn't know who this guy was. She told me she was in love with him, and she always would be."] He remarked and smiled softy at her, [+green "Personally, they just need to sort their shit out."] He shrugged.

He looked her over again and then looked to the ocean,
[+green "You're gorgeous, you know that, right?"] He said as he looked back at her and smiled lightly. She was stunning and right then she was his girl and no one else's. Xylon was great but he wasn't the type to share.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The drive to her place was slightly awkward, but at the same time it was kind of nice to have some sort of silence. When she went inside to change and what not he looked out the window. He knew that heart surgery was a huge thing, and he didn't even know when she was supposed to go in. He was scared, and he knew that her parents were a nightmare as well. This was a lot for everyone to take it. When she was back in the car he headed to the hospital.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He knew the way there, but let her give the directions. He had lived here his whole life, so he knew right where everything was. He was surprised that she still knew where everything was. He then parked in a post and he followed her inside. He shoved his hands into his pockets as they walked to the room where they would be in. When they walked inside he nodded his head towards the doctor and took a seat next to Jenny. That's when his whole world seemed to shift. Tomorrow? That soon? Was she in dangerous territory right now?]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He was glad when they were left alone, and he turned to face her. He took her hand in his and pressed his lips to the back of her hand. [#01A9DB "I know it's happening a lot sooner than you planned. That might mean you are heading into dangerous territory right now, and they need to make sure nothing happens. If you want we can go and meet up with your friend and Rohana for a few minutes, and then I can take you back to your place so you can tell your parents and pack a bag or two"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Then I can bring you back here, stay for a little while and then let your mother or dad come and stay the night. Whatever you want to do. No matter what, I will be here tomorrow before you go in, and after when you wake up"] he promised. All of their fighting was pointless. He was glad they had made love though when they did. He wanted nothing more than to make love to her one last time before she was locked up in the hospital for awhile. His eyes locked on her's.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Hell if you want, we can stop by my place before everything else, make love one last time and then get everything done"] he said with a small wink. He wouldn't mind getting her back into his bed, but at the same time he didn't know if that's something she would even want to do at the moment. It was a lot to take in, but he was more than willing to be there every step of the way holding her hand if he needed too. He let the silence wash over them, as she made up her mind on what she wanted too do.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Rohana sat there listening to the male explaining what Jenny had told him, and she nodded lightly. [#C4788E "She's all Xy could ever talk about. Even when him and I first met, he told me straight up that his heart belonged to someone else, and he wasn't going to change his mind. It just saddens me that things ended the way they did between them. Xy's such an amazing man, and he deserves nothing but the best. I just hope they work things out, because they deserve each other"] she said lightly. She could feel his eyes on her, and she loved it.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She then turned her head towards him and raised a 'brow slightly and laughed. [#C4788E "No. That's just gross honestly. I had just gotten out of a really abusive relationship at the time of meeting Xy, and I wasn't really looking for anything honestly. That was also the time I found out about daddy too. So my whole world was pretty much getting rocked. Xy is nothing more than my best friend. A brother so to speak, even though we aren't blood related. I know he'll always have my back"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "just like I will always have his back as well. He's someone that's always been there for me, and that's not going to ever change. Yes we both might be working on possible relationships, but our bond won't ever be broken. So you have nothing to worry about with Xy. Maybe some odd looks, and the whole you break her heart, I'll break your face talk but that's about it"] she said lightly. She meant it too. She was more interested in the man beside her for sure. She turned her eyes back to the water.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That's when the male said she was gorgeous. She felt her cheeks heat up a bit, and she slowly pushed herself up and out of her chair. She then moved and placed herself into his lap. She rested her knees on either side of him, as she straddled him. She put her hands on his chest and looked into his eyes. [#C4788E "You are the first person to keep telling me that, and I'm slowly starting to believe it."] she said lightly. Which was true. Not many men would do that for her. Hell right now she felt beautiful.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Earlier when they had been in the house he made her feel amazing, and she wanted to feel that again. She wanted to keep feeling that way. She ran her fingers lightly over his skin. [#C4788E "You're handsome, you that, right?"] she asked lightly turning his own question towards him. She slightly pressed herself down against him a bit more, before lowering her head down and finding his lips with her own. It wasn't official yet, but she hoped it would be. It would be nice to be fully claimed by someone for a change.]]

Jenny looked to Xylon, holding on tightly to his hand like he was the one thing that could keep her in reality right then. He promised to be there. Jenny shook her head,
[+purple "It's like everythings messed up."] She said, she qas terrified and it was painted over her face and she stared at Xylon. There was so much she wanted to do, she had planned so much in case it went horribly wrong and she watched him. She did want to be with him one last time, to see her friends and her parents again. She didn't want her parents to stay though, her mother would cry and her father would worry.

[+purple "Let's stop by the beach, see Max. And tben- I'll get a bag ready and we'll go to your place, please."] She said quietly, she was struggling to make sense of it and she couldn't believe how calm Xylon was being.
[+purple "Xy- Hey."] She said as she caught his face in her hands, [+purple "Please stay with me tonight. I don't want anyone else to stay."] She murmured and realised how selfish she qas being and she let him go. The doctor came back in and Jenny explained she would be back in a few hours or so. She figured they ought to go see Max and Rohana first, Jenny was acting as though the will to fight was gone. She was so nervous and she gave a few directions to Xylon in the car towards Max's house and as they pulled up she could see him and Rohana making out on the beach.

Jenny mailed a little, at least Max would have someone to look after him, if something did happen and she got out the car. She didn't want to tell them and she looked to Xylon, it was starting to set in, the reality of what tomorrow would bring and she was desperately trying to hold it together. It was paper thin though and she approached Rohana and Max, clearing her throat. She eyed Max over and gave him a soft smile, she hated telling people.
[+purple "I'm... sorry to disturb you guys. Its not good news either."] She remarked and chewed her lip.

[+purple "I have my surgery tomorrow, they got a space and my number was up. I uh- I don't want to make a big deal about it, but I wanted to tell you."] She explained.

[right [pic]]

Max watched Rohana and smirked a little, oh good, he didn't have to share with Xykon and he could deal with the breaking hearts conversation.  He had no intention tion of walking out on the beautiful woman at his side. He watched her move over and his hands found her hips as she straddled him, holding her in place and he watched her. He met her kiss and wrapped his arms around her, pulling her closer.
[+green "You're mine."] He murmured softly in her ear. He might have pushed farther but the sound of someone clearing their throat made him look over and he was startled to see Jenny and Xylon.


He chuckled nervously and listened to the news. Everyone seemed to be going through a rough patch right then and he eyed Jenny over.
[+green "Oh- Jen, I'm sorry. I can bring some stuff to the hospital? Or uh... we can visit?"] He offered. He felt like a shitty friend right then and he glanced to Xylon. He wondered if they had sorted their issues out or whether this was a temporary thing given Jenny could die on a metal table tomorrow. He reached out and pulled Jenny into his arms and hugged her tightly.

[+green "You look after her, alright?"] He said to Xylon, not threatening but he wanted to know she was being looked after and he released the woman as she stood back beside Xylon. Max grit his teeth. First everything with Rohana and now Jenny, it seemed the girls in his life were just destined to have a horrible time. It wasn't the time for arguing or fighting, Jenny just wanted to get it all over with probably and Max looked to Rohana, he supposed at least Jenny and Xylon knew about them know at least.

[+green "If you need anything, just get in touch, okay?"] He said to them. Jenny said not to fuss but Max wanted her to know she had support and she had people who cared for her waiting to greet her and help her recover. No doubt Xylon's pride meant he would want to do it himself but the option was always there.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Xylon nodded lightly knowing she would want to see her friend and let him know what was going on. When they were okay to go, he led her back to the car and helped her inside. He made a promise to himself that he would stay with her tonight. First stop by and see Rohana and Max, and at least tell them what was going on. He followed the directions that Jenny told him and soon he pulled up to the beach house, and shut the car off. He climbed out and looked towards the beach seeing the couple.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He still hadn't heard the news about Rohana's father either. He walked with Jenny down to the beach, and seeing the way Rohana was in the man's lap made him smirk a bit. She was finally with someone, or at least he hoped they were together, or at least planning on it anyway. He let Jenny do the talking though. He stood there and watched as the blonde stood and made her way over to him and hugged him tightly. He hugged her back, and kissed her temple lightly. [#01A9DB "I see you've been pretty busy"] he said with a smirk.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 That made his best friend blush and it was a good sight to see. She then took his arm and led him away from the other two as they talked. Xylon was a little surprised that she did, but didn't fight her on it. [#01A9DB "Hey, is everything okay?"] he asked her. He didn't know what was going on, but she looked like she hadn't slept well the last couple days and that worried him a little bit. She started playing with her fingers before he finally heard her small voice.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Daddy's gone.. He took his own life Xy.. I've been a total mess, and I haven't told you because I didn't want to come between you and Jenny. You both look amazing together by the way. I'll make sure to plan the funeral on a weekend, and if Jenny can't make it that's fine. I just want you there..."] she said lightly as she felt her voice crack a bit. Xylon pulled her into his arms and hugged her again, this time holding her a little bit longer than he should have, his heart shattering.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Of course I'll be there. I wouldn't dream of not being there"] he said lightly. The two stood there a moment longer before they finally went back to the other's. Jenny had just finished hugging Max, and she was back at his side. He watched as Rohana went back to her own chair and sat down. She wasn't really saying anything and he didn't blame her. He would explain it all to Jenny later. He looked towards Max when he told him to take care of her, and he nodded a bit. He was planning on it for sure.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Don't worry I'll take of her, as long as you take care of Ro-Ro there. She's dealing with her own issues right now"] he said lightly feeling horrible. He then turned back to Jenny and slid his arm around her waist, and led her back to the car a little bit later. He helped her back inside, went and went back to her place. He decided to stay in the car while she talked to her parents about what was going on. The small family needed the space, and he was willing to give them that.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 At the sound of the male's voice saying she was his, made a shudder run down her spine. She pulled back and was about to say something when someone cleared their throat and she felt like a horrible person just then. Xylon and Jenny were standing right there, and she shook her head lightly. [#C4788E "You are perfectly fine"] she said as she slid off of Max's lap and went over to Xylon and hugged him. She then took his arm and led him off to the side to talk with him. When he asked if everything was okay, she shook her head no.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Daddy's gone.. He took his own life Xy.. I've been a total mess, and I haven't told you because I didn't want to come between you and Jenny. You both look amazing together by the way. I'll make sure to plan the funeral on a weekend, and if Jenny can't make it that's fine. I just want you there..."] that's when she felt Xy's arms go back around her and hold her even longer. She held onto the male for dear life pretty much just then.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She knew he would be worried enough as it was with Jenny and she didn't want to add to that worry, but at least now he knew. They then made their way back to the other's and she sat back in her chair. She didn't really know what to say just then, so she kept her mouth shut. She listened as they talked a little bit longer, and then Xy was leading Jenny off. She turned her eyes to Max just then. [#C4788E "So Xy knows about daddy now. That's why I took him aside, and let you and Jenny talk"] she said lightly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She didn't want the news of Jenny's surgery to get them both down and she smirked a bit lightly as she cocked her head to the side a bit. [#C4788E "What's this about me being yours?"] she asked lightly. She thought she knew the answer, but she wanted him to say it out loud. She wanted him to explain it all. She was trying to keep the mood light, and hoped that she was doing a somewhat good job of it. She then reached over and took the man's hand in her own.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Is that your way of making it official?"] she asked lightly letting the question hang between them. She knew sooner or later she would have to start planning her father's funeral, but right now she wanted to keep the mood light. At least until the surgery tomorrow afternoon. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly as she ran her fingers lightly along the palm of his hand waiting for his reply.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny figured that was one hard task down and she knew Max had a lot to deal with. She didn't know the details of Rohana's life but she could tell she was a nice girl and would be good for Max. Kyrie looked to Xylon as she paused outside her home.
[+purple "I won't be long- Just, give me a minute."] She was struggling slightly and she stepped inside to speak to her parents. They were understandably worried, her mother was crying and Jenny took some time to calm them down and be as strong as she could. She explained that she would have Xylon staying the night with her and that she wanted them to not worry. The hospital would keep in touch with them. She was going to be fine, so she told them. She packed a bag with some spare clothes, toiletries and essentials. She packed up her phone charger and zipped up the bag. She paused and looked around her room with a soft smile before heading back out. She hugged her parents, she told them she loved them and she wanted everything to be as normal as possible.

Jenny looked to Xylon as she put the bag in the back seat and smiled a little.
[+purple "Thanks."] She said quietly to him and eyed him over,
[+purple "Can we go back to your place, just... one more time, just in case?"] She asked him. It wasn't about lust or passion right then, she loved Xylon. She understood he needed time but if she was going to possibly die tomorrow then she wanted to feel him close and intimately once more.

Kyrie grinned softly to him and when they pulled up, she got out and followed him in the house. Part of her almost felt like some desperate fool but she was so afraid, she had no warning and she wanted to experience what she could right then. She lavished Xylon with her lips, like it would be the last time they would ever be this close, the last time she would have Xylon with her. Jenny made sure to give as good as she got, taking it slow and committing it to memory as best she could, tracing his tattoos with her fingertips and not wanting to miss any part of him. He was beautiful, and he was so loved and she wanted him to know that.

Spent, Jenny lay there and stared at the ceiling before turning to look at Xylon. She cupped his face and wondered if they could just hide here forever, like this.
[+purple "Whatever happens, Xy, please just know I'm sorry for what happened."] She said quietly to him, she wanted him to know. She needed him to know.

[right [pic]]

Max watched Jenny and Xylon leave and he sighed out. Jenny was petrified, he could tell that much but she wanted everyone to act normal. With any luck, Xylon would make sure she didn't bottle everything up. Of course, they would both look after their women and protect them as best as they could. Max looked over to Rohana and clasped her hand in his, grinning softly at her.

Xylon knew, well that was something and he was glad Rohana was talking to others. He doubted Jenny would make it to the funeral, he was no doctor but he figured she would be taking it easy for a while, she'd be sore too no doubt. The thought of them cracking her open and slicing St her made him cringe and he eyed Rohana.
[+green "Well, unless you don't want to be, in which case I'm sure I have this cute little neighbour, she has a dog too."] He teased her and got up, pulling her up and to him. Enough of her teasing, he was going to show her that she was his.

Max lead her back up to the house, hands all over her and she was like a drug. Max slid off her bikini, discarding it in the corner of the room and he took her like he was laying claim to her. He explored her flesh and found the right spot, only letting up when she was satisfied and he chuckled a little, rather smug with himself as he tried to catch his breath. He pulled her close and kissed her neck,
[+green "What did I tell you, hm?"] He said quietly, voice low as he kept his arms around her protectively and buried his nose in the crook of her neck, inhaling her scent.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As the male was waiting for Jenny to tell her parents his mind wandered to Rohana. He knew she was in turmoil as well, and he felt bad for not being there for her. He knew that Max had been there, and that's all he could really think about it. He saw the way Max and her had been engaged when they got to the beach, and she seemed pretty happy. Hopefully it wouldn't be a one time thing either. He didn't want her hurting more than she already was. He sighed lightly as he waited for Jenny.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When she was back in the car he didn't really say anything as he headed back to his apartment. She was on the same page as himself. He knew nothing was going to happen to her, because she would be in the best of hands, and that's all that mattered to him. He was still slightly worried about what could happen. He knew she was going to have a pretty interesting scar on her chest, something no one else would really see unless she wore clothing that showed it. He thought about mentioning that to her later.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When he pulled into the parking spot, he kept her bags in the car and led her back inside. They were in his bed in less than five minutes, clothes thrown everywhere, bodies moving in time with one another. This time he was a bit rougher than he planned on doing, but that didn't stop him in the least. When they were both finished and she was laying on his chest she spoke about how sorry she was. He knew she was, and he felt like a total ass himself for how he had been treating her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "It's alright. I'm sorry too"] he said softly. The words falling from his lips. He wrapped his arms around her and held her against him a while longer before he spoke once more. [#01A9DB "Rohana's dad killed himself. He wasn't in the best health anyway, but she was doing her best to take care of him, and I guess it got to be too much, or he wasn't himself. I don't know the whole story, so when the funeral is planned I will be going"] he said matter of factly. He wasn't going to miss that for the world.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As he laid there letting the time slowly pass by, he wanted nothing more than to stay there. He knew they couldn't though, he had to get her to the hospital and checked in. [#01A9DB "I guess we should get a move on, it's been long enough"] he said lightly kissing her forehead. He then climbed out of bed and got cleaned up. He took a quick shower as well, and let her do the same if she wanted too while he packed up a bag for himself. He had to keep himself entertained somehow.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 So he was being serious? He did want her. That made her heart flutter slightly and she nodded a bit. She was surprised at the whole thing honestly. She wouldn't mind being claimed by the male either. Hell she didn't want anyone else having him. [#C4788E "Of course I do. Why wouldn't I? You're handsome to boot, you are a good lay in bed, you make me feel safe and protected, what woman wouldn't want that in a man?"] she breathed out. She watched as he stood and pulled her to her feet just then. Her heart slammed against her chest.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She wrapped her arms around his neck, and her legs around his waist as she let him carry her into the house. Her book forgotten for the time being. She knew where they were headed, and she wasn't disappointed either when they were finished. Her breathing was slightly heavy, and her mind was racing. She turned her head towards him and smiled lightly as she pulled him towards her once more, kissing him deeply. This was something she could get used too in a heartbeat. Staying in bed all day, laying skin to skin.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I suppose it's official then. I'm your's"] she breathed out. As the words fell from her lips she couldn't be any happier than she was right then. It's been a while since she felt like this for a man. She curled up against his naked body, feeling his nose against her skin. She laid there a moment longer before she let her eyes drift closed. The day was still young, and it was starting to reach sunset. She was surprised at how many times they went at it today too. It was amazing, at least she thought it was.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "What if we go get that ice cream now, then come back home and stay inside the rest of the night and do whatever your little heart desires"] she whispered lightly. She wouldn't mind staying fully nude with him either. She felt comfortable in her own skin with him. She then ran her fingers through his hair slowly, her body starting to relax from the long day. She knew she would sleep like a baby that night.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny watched Xylon, sometimes he was impossible to read. She didn't know if he was scared too, he certainly wasn't acting like it right then. She sighed out softly and watched him get up and go for a shower. She didn't want to go back to the hospital, she didn't want to face it all, she wanted to stay here with Xylon and fool herself that nothing was wrong. She wasn't going to stop him, she couldn't even if she wanted to. She went for a shower and dressed before stepping out. She was terrified and right then she just wanted someone to tell her it was okay. Xylon seemed to preoccupied with Rohana and everything that happened with her and Jenny didn't question it.

Jenny was silent as they made their way to the hospital and then they were shown to the room. It was nice actually, her parents had private healthcare hence the fancy accommodation and Jenng set her bag down as she looked around. She looked to Xylon, suddenly feeling self conscious and weak,
[+purple "You uh- Are you alright with this?"] She asked and sat on the edge of the bed. She felt like a damn fool and she watched him, he seemed unbothered and she wasn't sure why that was putting her off so much. He was so calm, so collected and she supposed it was a good thing. She set her bags down and looked around.

[+purple "I don't know how long the surgery will take."] She mumbled quietly to him, she wasn't sure if he would just wait in the hospital but it would be hours. He had promised to be there when she woke up and Jenny dreaded to think what state she would be in tomorrow when it was overwith. She stared at Xylon, trying to find the right words for what she wanted to tell him. 
[+purple "Xy, look- If something does happen, and I don't come out of surgery, I want you to know that you've been the best person in my life. And I'd want you to fine some pretty girl to look after you and keep you out of trouble."] She said to him with a soft laugh, she meant it. If she wasn't going to be around then Xylon needed to be happy.

[+purple "But I want you to know that you are so loved, you are so cared for."] She mumbled to him, [+purple "And that won't stop, not ever."] She said to him, she loved him and he knew she did. She sighed out shakily and felt like a damned fool, she wanted to run but Xylon has taught her that running wouldn't solve anything.

[right [pic]]

Max smiled at the woman in his arms. He trailed some kisses down her neck and to her shoulder, never able to get enough of her it seemed. She was his muse, his inspiration...  everything.
[+green "Hm, I'd shout it from the rooftops to let everyone know that you're my girl."] He said and relaxed from the high he had just experienced. He grinned at  Rohana, he had completely forgotten the ice cream and he nodded.
[+green "A sunset walk along the beach, with an ice cream?"] He mused and chuckled, kissing her lips and getting up, dipping for a quick shower and dressing in some jeans and a loose shirt before eyeing her over.

He waited for her to join him, he was worried about Jenny, terrified of losing his friend and he held on to Rohana's hand.
[+green "Wouldn't you mind if tomorrow, we took some flowers in to Jen? I know she said no big deals, but I also know she's terrified and your friend Xylon doesn't seem the gentlest type."] He said with a smirk as they approached the ice cream vendor and he looked to her and let her order whatever it was she wanted. He ordered a cone and paid the man, looking at the view as the sun was starting to set on the water. It was gorgeous.

He looked to Rohana and wondered how exactly he had ended up with such a wondrous woman on his arm. She was incredible and she was loving and she was absolutely perfect to him. He wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her close to his side. It was strange how quickly he had become her life, he couldn't imagine a world without her in it suddenly.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 When they got the room and were inside, he shut the door and looked towards her. The room was nice, and he wondered if it was because of the health care her parents had. Whatever the reason was, at least she would be comfortable with it. He looked towards her and shrugged a bit. [#01A9DB "Am I okay with this? Not really no. But one of us has to be strong and not let our emotions show. It's better to have one of us scared out of our minds, instead of both of us"] he admitted.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He was kind of worried about what was going to happen. He didn't know if things would go as planned, or if everything would fall apart. All he did know was she would be in good hands, the doctors they had these days all knew what they were doing. Or so he hoped anyway. He watched as she sat on the bed, and he made himself comfortable in the chair. He knew she was scared, and he didn't blame her. She had every right to be. It was a really scary time indeed. At least he would be there.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As he spoke about him finding someone else, he shrugged it off and shook his head. [#01A9DB "Nothing is going to happen to you. If you keep thinking like something's going to happen, then it will. You've got to stay positive, and if you don't then all hell will break loose. I've seen it happen before"] he said a little too coldly. It was starting to get on his nerves about how negative she was being about the whole thing. He wanted to grab her, and shake her to make her realize how stupid she was being.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "I understand the nerves I do. But you can't keep thinking the worst right now. You need to realize it's happening, and it's happening the way it needs too. Everything will be okay"] he said lightly. He was going to keep his distance for the moment. He didn't want to touch her, and he sure as hell didn't want to be touched by her. He was fighting his own battle right now, and it wasn't a good idea to argue. That's when someone knocked on the door and a nurse poked her head in, with a bright smile on her face.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [b "I see you are making yourself at home. I just need you to change into this gown after we take you to pre-op to make sure you'll be ready for tomorrow."] she said with a warm smile. She then turned her eyes to Xylon and smiled even more. [b "I'm surprised your parent's aren't here. Since it would be better to have them here instead of someone else"] she said lightly. That seemed to piss the male off. [#01A9DB "She can have whoever she wants here"] he snapped at the nurse.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [b "I'm not saying she doesn't have a choice, just sometimes it's better to have the parents here instead of someone else, because of where she will be staying when she gets to go home is all I'm saying"] the woman snapped back. Xylon crossed his arms over his chest and fell silent. He turned his eyes away from the women, as the nurse helped Jenny into her gown. The air in the room smothering the male.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The woman couldn't help but smile at the kisses. He was so gentle, and it was a whole new world for her in a way. She wouldn't trade it for anything. When he went to shower, she changed into her sundress, and slipped on a pair of flip flops once more. She then pulled her hair into a ponytail and waited for the male to finish his shower. She would shower when they got back, it would help her relax a bit more and sleep like a baby for sure. When he was done they headed out.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As they walked to the ice cream vendor, she ordered a chocolate cone with a cup just in case. She then turned her eyes towards the male and nodded. [#C4788E "I wouldn't mind at all honestly. If you'd like we can put together a small package for her, with some things to help keep her entertained while being there. A couple books, or something. I know I would like something like that to keep my mind from spinning"] she said lightly as she took a bite of the treat in hand. She leaned into the male as they walked.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Xy might not seem like a gentle person, but when it comes to the right people he melts. I should know, he's been nothing but gentle with me the whole time. He might seem like a hard ass, but that's just how he's always been. Just give him time, and you'll change your mind about him"] she said lightly as she looked towards him, smiling a bit. She wished she had her phone just then. This would have been the perfect lighting for some pictures, and she was kicking herself for that all of a sudden.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She then turned her attention towards the sunsetting over the water. It was breathtaking. The sight before her was amazing, and she was glad she had someone as amazing as Max to share it with. [#C4788E "I don't want you thinking I'm trying to take you from Jenny, because I'm not. If you want to see her, spend time with her, you are always welcome too. I'm not the type of person to stop someone from doing that. That would make me heartless and a down right bitch, which I'm neither of those things"]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "You also don't need my permission to do anything either. If and when you need space from me, tell me and I'll back off and let you do your thing. I don't want you thinking that since you and I are now together, that things are going to become that way, because they won't. I just hope you'd at least let me know when you'll be back, and who you are going with incase something happened to you, and I would be able to get ahold of you"] she said lightly keeping her eyes towards the water.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She was one to worry about a lot of things, but she wasn't about to stop him from spending time with his loved ones either. Just as long as she was kept in the loop that's all that mattered to her. She took another bite of the ice cream that was slowly melting and fell silent.]]

Jenny went quiet, she qas trying but she wasn't immune to death and accidents. She was just scared, that was all. All she wanted was Xylon to hold her close and she sighed softly, her eyes shifting to the door when the nurse came in.
[+purple "It's fine, I want him here."] She said, [+purple "Please, just leave me alone."] She said to the nurse when she was finished up. It didn't matter where she was staying, she wanted Xylon there with her. She gazed at him in the quiet and sank into the bed. Xylon looked like he wanted to be away from her right then, like he wanted to run and Jenny just stared at him. Nothing she said mattered but she hoped if it did go wrong, that he would at least remember what she said to him.

[+purple "You're right, I'll try not to worry."] Shebsaid to him, conceding and letting him win for now. There was nothing else she could really do right then, she just wanted to sleep and for this to be all over. This was awkward and she wouldn't have blamed him for walking out.
[+purple "Hospital food isn't much good."] He apologised but figured Xy could go and get something different no doubt. Jenny wasn't looking forwards to recovery, she was afraid and she would need help. Xylon was already close to resenting her and that was without her needing care.

Jenny eyed the television and flicked it on by means of a distraction. She couldn't just turn off her fear and her nerves about tomorrow but she would do her best to try and be as strong as he wanted her to be, if it made him happy. She didn't want to think tomorrow that they were at odds right then. She wasn't sure she could be the strong woman he wanted, but she would try.

[right [pic]]

Max watched her and smiled a little. He knew she wasn't like that but he just wanted her to know that she was the special one his life he loved Jenny like a sister, he wanted her and Xylon to be happy together. He cast Rohana a look and chuckled,
[+green "He just doesn't doesn't the sort is all. As long as he's looking after her."] Jenny wasn't his girl and how she chose to live her life wasn't her business, it was Jenny's and she was choosing Xylon.

[+green "Jenny isn't strong like you, but you're right. A nice package and I know she likes you, she wants to get to know you."] He said to her. He hoped the two women would become friends, he wanted to know Xylon a bit better but there was a lot going on right then with all of them. He pressed a kiss to Rohana's cheek and smiled softly at him. He grinned softly at her.

[+green "Besides, you come first now."] He reminded her. Hebcqred for Rohana so deeply, no woman had ever captured him like this before and sure he'd had dated and flings but nothing this meaningful and he wanted to be there for her. He wanted to protect her and keep her as safe as possible and make sure she was happy always. He just hoped he was enough for her right then.

[+green "I say we have a cosy night in, just the two of us but I'll keep an eye on my phone just in case Jenny calls or something before her surgery and we'll watch movies and then tomorrow, we'll drop off something at the hospital for Jen and then I'm yours for the rest of the day."] He grinned to her softly. He would do whatever she wanted, she had him wrapped around her little finger.

[google-font][merriweather [size12 The nurse looked between the two and sighed a bit. [b "Don't get too comfortable because I have to get you to pre-op to make sure you can handle the medication, and the sedative we will be putting you under"] she said as she looked at Jenny closely. [b "I know it's a lot to take in, and normally the parents are the ones that are supposed to be here, because I really doubt you'll be staying with your boyfriend"] she said looking towards Xylon just then as well. The male narrowed his eyes a bit towards her.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB "Thank you for being slightly worried, her parents will be here in the morning before the surgery, and you can tell them then about what to do with her"] he said. The nurse nodded lightly as she went into the hallway and came back a moment later. [b "Let's go Jenny, and once pre-op is done you can get comfortable, but right now is not that time"] she said crossing her arms. When Jenny finally stood and followed her out, Xylon was finally alone. He sighed as he leaned forward and put his head into his hands.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He hated hospitals with a passion, and he honestly didn't want to be here. He knew that he told Jenny he would. He made a promise to himself that when she was asleep, he would go for a walk to try and unwind and hopefully shut his mind up. Right now he waited while she was out doing what was needed before the surgery tomorrow. He couldn't help but wonder what he had gotten himself into. He sighed lightly as he leaned back into the chair and pulled his phone out of his pocket.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 He scrolled to his mother's name and opened a new message and started typing. [#01A9DB [i I know I haven't been the best at keeping in touch, but here's what's happened so far. Jenny is back in town, and I honestly don't know what to think about it. We've been at it the last couple days back and forth. We are at the hospital right now, and she's heading down for pre-op to make sure she can handle everything, and then she will be getting open heart surgery tomorrow afternoon. I'm scared, and I don't like the feeling at all.]]]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#01A9DB [i If you guys want to come down you are more than welcome too. I think she would love seeing you guys. I guess you can say I need my momma. I love you and hope to see you soon.]] The male read the message over and hit send. He then shut his phone off and leaned his head back against the chair and waited for Jenny to come back to the room. He didn't know how long she was going to be gone, but it was kind of nice sitting in the silence.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 As he spoke about Xylon she felt her heart drop a bit. He really wasn't the easiest person to get along with, but if you took the time he wasn't so cold and wasn't a total asshole. [#C4788E "I wouldn't mind getting to know her better. I just don't want her hating me for being so close to him either. I know he's madly in love with her, and has been for years. I just don't want to ruin their relationship or whatever they are right now. I also don't want to lose my best friend either"] she said softly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 Even though he's been dealing with the whole thing with Jenny, and her popping back into his life she was glad Max had been there since she first laid eyes on him. As he spoke about the cozy night in she nodded lightly. She finished the ice cream in the cup before tossing it into the garbage can. She then turned and leaned against the railing, resting her hands on her stomach and watched him with silent eyes for a moment. She knew of this cute little shop nearby to get everything they needed.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "Let's go and get her things now then. So that way tomorrow we could be at home when she calls, and not out and about"] she said lightly as she took his hand in her own and led him down the walkway, and towards one of the shops. Once she was inside she felt like she was home, and loved the feeling. She went up and down the aisles looking for anything and everything that might be of help. When she was done, she had small handful of items. She then walked up to a counter and placed them down.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 [#C4788E "I found a couple of coloring books and crayons as well. Along with some word search books and pencils. What else do you think she would like?"] she asked him. She wasn't meaning to take charge, because she didn't really know her but hoped that what she had found would help a little bit. Whatever Max found as well might just be enough. She then looked towards one of the shelves and spotted a small stuffed animal. She walked over and picked up the tiger and smiled lightly.]]

[google-font][merriweather [size12 She brought it over to the small pile and placed it beside it. [#C4788E "I think we should think of a cute saying to tie around his neck to hopefully help make her feel better as well"] she said lightly. The tiger was cute for sure. Now all they would need would be a bag, and hopefully they would be done.]]

Jenny just huffed and got up, following the nurse and she looked to Xylon. She sighed out softly and figured it was best just to try and get it over with. She wasn't sure what to expect but she supposed they'd sedate her a little. She just did as she was told, she was going to try and be strong for Xylon but she didn't know how. This was terrifying to her, it was daunting and they gave her some checks, made sure she was all done up and prepped.
[b "You won't get anything to eat after 9pm, alright?"] A kinder nurse said and Jenny just nodded, she didn't feel very hungry anyway. She figured she'd have to stay with her parents, they were getting older though and she hated to burden anyone. Her place was cramped and her room was upstairs which was sure to be an extra mountain.

It took around an hour and half of prodding and poking before Jenny was finally taken back to the room. She felt half-asleep and oddly pleasant, easing down in the bed among the pillows and the blankets. Her eyes moved to Xylon, watching him for a while in a sort of daze. He didn't know how amazing he was to her, how much she cherished him. She wanted to tell him but she was scared he would snap at her. He could be so unpredictable when he was like this and she didn't want to tempt fate. The quiet was deafening but weirdly it was alright.

Jenny glanced up as her parents came in, she pushed herself to sit up slightly,
[i "Hey, we thought we'd stop in. We brought you some books and some bits and pieces."] Her father said and looked to Xylon, he seemed to have it all under control honestly. They had brought some of her favourite drinks and snacks in, not that Jenny quite felt like stomaching them but it was a kind gesture and she nodded to them.
[+blue "Thanks."] She breathed out and her mother, Mary, looked to Xylon. He must have been going through turmoil.
[b "Are you sure you want to stay, dear?"] She asked him, he was young too and this was a lot for him to take on. Thomas, her father, glanced to Xylon. Men had much different ways to dealing with this,
[b "They'll be fine, Mary. Try not to worry."] He grumbled, if Jenny didn't want him around then she would have said something. They were adults now, not forlorn teenagers.

[right [pic]]

Max watched her as she lead him to the little shop, it was very cute and he watched her go around like a little busy bee. She was so kind hearted and he smiled a little. She had done very well when she collected the items and he chuckled.
[+green "She's going to have plenty to do and I bet she'll find half of this stuff keeps her occupied when she's being looked after at home. She's going to go stir crazy."] Max said with a smile towards her. The tiger was cute and he thought for a while.
[+green "Why don't we do something like 'Thinking of you' or something?"] He wasn't the sentimental type evidently.

Jenny always said no fuss but Max knew she didn't get a choice this time. He paid up after finding a nice gift bag and he packed it all in. They could go tomorrow when she was finished up, he hoped. He did worry something would happen to her, that something awful might happen tomorrow but he had to think positively.
[+green "You are amazing."] He said to Rohana and pressed a kiss to her cheek as they left the store. Jenny would love the gesture and Max smiled to her.

He wrapped an arm around her waist as they started the walk back and he hummed a little,
[+green "Well, we've successfully spoiled my best friend, I think I have to spoil you now, right?"] He teased and chuckled, [+green "Okay, tell me your favourite takeout, pizza, chinese, thai... Anything, we'll order that and then I will make sure everything is cosy and hey, I might even run you a nice, hot bubble bath so you can really relax."] He said to her with a chuckle.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Xylon watched as the nurse led Jenny out of the room. Now was not the time to argue with the nursing staff. Jenny wasn't even doing as she was told, and that was annoying him a bit more. While she was gone he went for a walk trying to clear his head. He wanted nothing more than to just dip out, and let her parents take over. Then again that would be really asshole of him. He wasn't about to do that to her. Even though he hated the hospital with a passion. He sighed lightly and kept walking.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 His mind then wandered to Rohana, and the way she had looked sitting in that other man's lap. She looked so happy right then and there, and yet she was hurting. She was hiding her pain really well and he was proud of her for that. In a way he wished he had been the one to be with her, to be the one to hold her and tell her that everything was okay. Was he getting jealous of Max? Maybe in a way he was. Then again he'd been dealing with his relationship with Jenny at the time.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He did care about her, but he couldn't help but wonder if this would be the end for them. This whole surgery would be a make it, or break it type thing. Was he worried she would end up dying? Hell yes he was, but at the same time he knew she would make it. She was a really strong woman, and she had the best support system there was. He finally made his way back to her room and perfect timing too. A different nurse was bringing her back, and helping her get into bed.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He was a bit calmer than he had been awhile ago. He moved over to the chair and sat back down. He was about to speak when her parents came into the room. He stood and shook her father's hand, and hugged her mother. When she asked if he would be okay he smiled at her. [#01A9DB "Of course I will be. I hate this place with a passion though, but I'll be right here along with you both tomorrow as well. You two need deserve a night alone before the surgery anyway"] he said smiling once more.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "I just worry about you. I know tomorrow will be a really hard day for the three of us, but I know we will all make it. Get some sleep here soon Jenny. You have a really busy day ahead of you. I love you"] she said kissing her daughter on the forehead, and then they left. Xylon sat back down and looked towards her. It was a little after 5pm so they still had a long ways to go. [#01A9DB "I'm sorry for being an ass"] he said lightly and meant it.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#01A9DB "Just seeing you in that bed is breaking me Jenny. I know it's all going to go well, but I'm on edge and I don't like it"] he admitted. He then moved the chair closer to her bed and picked up her hand. He couldn't really lay there with her, but at least he could still touch her and feel her skin on his. He was glad they had made love again before everything would change tomorrow. He fell silent and watched her, trying to understand everything that's happening, and wondering what was on her mind.]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As the two were getting the small care package together, she just picked out random items not really knowing anything about the redhead. She wanted to do something nice for her. When they were finally done she rolled her eyes lightly at the male. [#C4788E "I'm just trying to do the right thing, it doesn't make me amazing"] she said with a small smile crossing her lips. It felt nice though hearing him say that. When he mentioned spoiling her, she knew it would be pointless to argue with him on it. So she didn't say anything at first.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When he asked what her favorite takeout was she stopped for a moment to really think about it. [#C4788E "Honestly I don't have a favorite. We could always do one of the burger joints in town, I know they have some amazing milk shakes, along with fries as well. Their burgers are so juicy that you wouldn't want to go anywhere else after you've had Burley's"] she said with a smile. Thinking about it made her mouth water and her stomach growl. She didn't realize how hungry she really was until now.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#C4788E "Let's get Burley's, watch your favorite movie, and then the bubble bath?"] she asked. A nice hot bubble bath sounded amazing. What made it sound even more amazing is having him in there with her. She slipped her arm around his waist as they made their way back to his place. Her place too in a way. Which was really strange to think of. She never would have moved in with someone so quickly before. Then again things were a bit different than she thought they would be. She didn't mind it though, at least she had a roof over her head.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She also had someone she could curl up with, touch, and make love too. God thinking about that as well drove her slightly insane. When they were outside the front door she grabbed the front of the man's shirt, and pulled him against her. She crushed her lips with his for a moment. When she pulled back her eyes were slightly glazed over, and her heart was pounding. A small smile passed over her lips as she looked up into his eyes. [#C4788E "If anyone's amazing it's you"] she breathed out.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She then let the male go and slipped into the house. She slipped her shoes off and moved them out of the way. [#C4788E "Do you want me to order out while you get the movie started?"] she asked as she placed their bags onto the small table by the door. She would put everything together in the morning. Right now she wanted to focus on the male, and that's about it.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny's mother was as kind as ever and Jenny smiled softly. She didn't want Xylon to have a restless night, she didn't want anyone to have that. She figured she would just be asleep most of tomorrow anyway and be completely out of it and in pain. She felt helpless and knew if she survived the operation that it would end up a very painful and slow recovery. She would be alive though, she could actually plan for a future. She watched her mother leave and nodded before looking to Xylon, surprised by his apology. She gave his hand a squeeze, he didn't want to hear that she was scared because he was just as scared as her.
[+purple "Once this is all over, do you think maybe you could take me to that milkshake place again? Max gets the order wrong every time."] She said quietly and stroked her fingers over his hand.

The medication they had given her was making her dreamy and tired. She looked out of it and she smiled to Xylon softly, bringing his hand up to kiss it.
[+purple "Can you- Would you stay, until I fall asleep?"] She asked him softly, she knew he could stay if he wanted to and she would be too tired to argue the fact with him. She just wanted it all to be over, she didn't even feel unwell she just wanted to run away from it all. Jenny shifted so she was on her side, facing him and she marvelled at the man before her. It seemed so stupid she had let him get away as a teenager, all that time ago. They had been wonderful together and maybe if they had stayed together, they would rule the world by now.

Jenny nestled down in the blankets and she just wanted Xylon to hold her close and tell her it was going to be alright and he'd be right there. She'd sleep fine that way and she moved close to the edge of the bed so she could be as close to him as possible and watched him with sleepy eyes,
[+purple "I'm glad I came back."] She said quietly to him and she meant it. She didn't want anyone else with her right then, just Xylon. Jenny finally closed her eyes and gave into the tug of sleep induced by medication, holding onto Xylon's hand as though it was a lifeline.

[right [pic]]

Max grinned at Rohana as they walked and he kept her close to his side, he never wanted her to stray from it. Burley's? He had heard of it actually, never quite got around to tasting it though and he hummed a little, about to speak when Rohana placed a kiss to his lips and stole away his thoughts and he tighted his arms around her, she was incredible. He watched her head inside for a moment, how at home she seemed pattering around his home and how the light played absently with her features. It was glorious, he felt like an invasive onlooker watching an angel.

[+green "Sounds good. I'll find a movie, you can order food and I'll make sure everything is set up in here."] He chuckled a little and tidied up the room a little. He made sure that it was tidy and they had nothing to worry about and the pillows were set up so they could just lay down and relax. He wanted Rohana to be happy and relaxed and so far she had been dealing with this entire situation rather well. Then again, he had given her plenty distractions. He put out some blankets and fiddled around for a while, lighting some of the fairy lights around the room. It wasn't terribly romantic but he wanted to try something special with her because why not? She deserved it.

He looked up when Rohana came in and wrapped his arms around her, pressing a kiss to her cheek.
[+green "I'm the luckiest man alive."] He murmured into the crook of her neck as he trailed his lips down to her collarbone.
[+green "Why don't you make yourself comfortable, hm?"] He asked her and motioned around. Max was not great with gestures or trying to show how he felt. He sighed out and nuzzled into the woman before releasing her and shrugging out of his hoodie, watching her. She qas beautiful and she had no idea.
ButterflyRoseυndyιng   1y ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male knew she wanted him to stay, but he might slip out and head home to sleep in his own bed when she was fully asleep. He was kind of surprised they had given her something to sleep already, when it was just a pre-op, and not the full surgery. He wasn't going to question it though. They knew what they were doing. Or at least he hoped they knew what they were doing. He just hoped that tomorrow would go smoothly, and then she would be right back here for awhile. He sighed lightly when she took his hand.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#01A9DB "Of course I'll stay till you fall asleep. Because by the time you wake up fully tomorrow, I'll be right here along with your mother and dad as well"] he said with a small smile. It was hard seeing her in the bed, and it tore his heart apart. He leaned over and kissed her forehead lightly before she finally fell asleep. The meds had taken over before he could answer her other question. He was planning on taking her to all of their old spots when she was well enough to go.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 That also included the small shop she had asked about. He sighed lightly and watched her for awhile longer. When he knew she was fully out of it, he stood and gently pushed her back onto the bed even more, so that way she wouldn't fall off the bed in the middle of the night. It was still pretty early, and he wondered if he could go and get something to eat, and get a bag for himself for the night. He walked out of her room closing the door behind him, leaving her alone for a little bit.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 That's when he spotted a nurse and he walked up to her. She looked up and smiled towards him. [b "Is everything okay?"] she asked him cocking her head to the side. The male shoved his hands into his pockets. [#01A9DB "Everything's fine, I was just wondering if it would be possible to come back in a couple of hours? I want to get some things from my place before settling down for the night"] he said. The nurse nodded her head. [b "Of course you can dear. Do what you need to do"] she cooed.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male thanked her, and then wrote down Jenny's name and room number, and then slipped out of the hospital. It was kind of nice being out of there for a little bit. Might not have been a wise choice on his part, but he needed to get out of there. He needed to breathe, and not feel so smothered at the moment. He went to his, slid inside, started it up and headed home to pack up a bag, before returning to the hospital for the long night ahead of him. Tomorrow was going to be even longer.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The woman nodded lightly as she pulled her phone out of her pocket and placed an order, and thought about picking it up, but decided to have it delivered instead. When the order was placed she slipped into the bathroom for a moment and looked at herself in the mirror. She looked different. She looked happy for a change. Even though her father was gone, and she was alone she had Max, Xylon and hopefully Jenny. She knew that her best friend was dealing with a lot as well as she was. She was proud of him though.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She hurried and did her business, and then washed her hands and made her way back to the bedroom. She cocked her head to the side seeing the small fairy lights and a small smile passed over her lips. She then felt Max slide his arms around her, and she leaned into him a bit. They were both lucky. She slid her arms around his neck, slowly running her fingers through his hair. [#C4788E "If I get too comfortable, it'll make the delivery driver a bit uncomfortable"] she said with a small laugh. She would wait until the food arrived though.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#C4788E "What movie did you pick out?"] she asked as her eyes flicked over to the bed, with the extra blankets and pillows. He was doing everything he could to make her comfortable, and she really liked that about him. He was taking amazing care of her. She honestly couldn't have asked for anyone better. She let out a small sigh when there was a knock on the door. She slipped out of his arms and went to answer the door. It was the food, and she paid the man a good tip.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She then carried the food into the bedroom and placed it on the bed. [#C4788E "Go ahead and dig in, I'm going to go and change real quick"] she said lightly as she found a pair of sleeping shorts, and matching tank-top. She then slipped into the bathroom once more and changed into the pajama's. She ran her fingers through her hair lightly as she pulled it up into a messy bun. She honestly wouldn't know where she would be without Max, and the way he's stepped up to the plate with her. Things were a mess all around.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She just couldn't thank him enough though. He really did mean a lot to her, and she couldn't wait to see where this new journey was going to take them. When she was comfortable, she went back into the bedroom, crawled onto the bed and grabbed her own food. She unwrapped the burger, took a bite and settled back against the pillows to enjoy the night.]]
NullificationUndying   1y ago

Jenny slept, comforted by Xylon's presence and the mild sedative she had been given to help her relax was workings its magic. She was exhausted and thankfully there weren't any terrible nightmares ready to plague her right thag moment. She just wanted to be home, in his bed with him. She wanted to fall asleep beside him properly, something they hadn't actually done despite everything. He might resent her still and she knee that she deserved it but her thoughts were off the times when they were teenagers. The long days spent together, finding things to do and when there was something scary, a storm or something, Jenny would always crawl into his bed and sleep at his side. She had been a fool to think any of this would change his feelings.

Jenny woke a few hours later, fumbling around for some water as she took a drink and checked the time. It was the middle of the night and she eased back down on the bed. The room was dark and she wasn't sure where the switch was, groping around as she found the lamp by her bed and turned it on, grateful it was dim. She let her eyes adjust for a moment before she sank back down, adjusting the blankets and taking in a deep breath. She was actually hungry but she couldn't eat.

A nurse poked her head in and smiled,
[b "Would you like something to get you back to sleep?"] She asked quietly and Jenny shook her head, she would be sleeping all day tomorrow probably.
[+purple "Am I allowed to eat?"] She asked and the nurse shook her head,
[b "Sorry sweetheart, your surgery is scheduled for seven AM. The doctor will be around to explain everything."] The nurse was keeping her voice low and Jenny nodded to her gratefully. It wasn't long away and she checked the time. It was four in the morning and she rubbed her eyes. She wanted to stay awake now, until she was taken to surgery and she finally looked around the room. Xylon was there and she smiled softly, pushing herself to sit. She watched him with dreamy eyes and she realised she wasn't ready to go, not yet. She wanted to explore everything with Xylon, she didn't want to miss another moment with him. She reached over brushed her fingertips over Xylon's hair, moving it back from his face. She leaned down and pressed a kiss to his cheek, she supposed he was sleeping.
[+purple "I love you, and I'm sorry for not saying it earlier."]
