I step out of the bath and dry myself with the towel. I let the towel slip off of my body and lay on the floor. Just standing there I gaze into the mirror at my bruised up body. The scar on my shoulder catches my eye. A few years ago my ex boyfriend had tried to kill me by pushing me into a ditch. When I reached the bottom another man came down after me with a knife and stabbed me in my shoulder. He slipped on a rock and busted his head open. The next day I woke up in a hospital and the doctors told me that he had died from excessive blood loss. Sometimes it's hard to think about how my boyfriend had plotted my death. Ty and my sister were the only people I had left. They helped me keep my sanity when I thought I would lose it. Now I believe it is gone, completely. I pick up the oversized shirt and underwear that Alex left me as nightwear. I put them on and walk back to the bedroom. When I open the door I see Alex standing in the back of the room getting undressed. Our eyes meet and my face heats up. "I... I'm so sorry Alex! I should have knocked." As I'm covering my eyes I hear him chuckle. A few seconds later I'm wrapped in his warm embrace. I can feel his breath on my neck and it sends shivers down my spine.
"Bella, are you trying to seduce me?" Butterflies erupt in my stomach and my face is on fire.
"N...no! I swear. I didnt mean to." I open my eyes and see that he had only taken off his shirt. But his perfectly sculpted body was very visible. The door shuts behind us and he walks forward until my back is against it.
"Your fine. You have no idea how much I've missed you, Bella." His forehead falls on mine and he feels really warm. He closes his eyes as to just enjoy my presence. Placing my hand on his shoulder, near the crook of his neck, his eyes shoot open. He looks me in the eye and I lift myself up to kiss him. Eagerly he kisses me back with so much passion I feel as though I might fall down. His hand slides up my thigh to the rim of my shirt. I wrap my arms around his neck pulling him closer to me and his hand slides further up my shirt, unhooking my bra. The kiss deepens and his toung enters my mouth. Picking me up, he carries me to the bed and lays me down on the blanket without breaking the kiss. Almost effortlessly he pulls off my shirt and underwear. I tug at his belt until his pants fall off. Looking me in the eye he beams the sexiest smile I have ever seen. "After tonight I will never allow you to leave me again!" His lips crash into mine once more.
"That wont be a problem for me." Taken away in a night full of ecstacy we fall asleep in each others arms.
Waking up was the easiest thing I have done in a while. I am so overjoyed that I spring out of bed super energetically and skip down the stairs. The sweet smell of pancakes fills my senses. I walk to the kitchen to find Alex with a plate a pancakes with bananas and whip cream by the countertop. We smile at each other wholeheartedly and I walk over and place a sweet kiss on his lips. "How did you know this was my favorite?!" Alex chuckles and looks at me lovingly.
"There is not a single thing I forgot about you, baby. I love you."
"I love you to."
"Does that mean you remember me?!"
"No. I'm sorry. I wish I did, but it doesnt take long to fall for someone as amazing as you." He smiles and passes me the plate.
"Well as long as you love me, I guess it wouldn't matter if you have your memories back or not." I sigh thinking to myself how it must hurt him that I cant remember. But I promise you, Alex, I will remember! I will investigate how I lost my memories in the first place. I finish my delicious breakfast and place the plate in the sink. "Hey, Bella. You can go put on some of my clothes and we can go to the store to buy you some of your own when we leave." I nod and run back up the steps to change.
When I come back down I hear Alex talking to someone at the door and I stay back enough to hear but still be out of sight. The voice is very familiar. When I lean out to see who it is I can immediately tell. Ty. How did he find me? Why is he here? I rush to the door and jump into his arms mid sentence.
"Oh my God, Bella! I have been looking everywhere for you! Are you ok? Alex didnt hurt you, did he?" I laugh at his questions and look over at Alex. He is giving Ty an evil look and he looks as if he wants to kill him. Stepping over I kiss him on the cheek and hug him.
"I'm perfectly fine. You dont need to worry Ty. He took care of me." Alex looks down and smiles to himself then turns back to Ty.
"Why do you care anyway it's not like your anything more than a friend to her!" Alex practically shouts at Ty. Ty's face gets dark and he tightens his fists. Noticing his anger I step in front of him.
"What do you think your doing Ty. What is wrong with you today. You seem so different. And how do you two know each o..." Abruptly Ty's lips are on mine and his hands are on my cheeks. I place my hands on his chest and push with all of my strength. Ty stumbles back out of the door. Alex rushes past me in anger.
"What the hell do you think your doing?! If you ever come close to Bella again I will kill you, asshole!" Alex punches Ty in the face and turns toward me. He takes my hand and brings me to the living room, slamming to door and locking it. He sighs and looks over at me. "I'm sorry."
"Why are you sorry? Thank you for that."
"Your thanking me? You realize I just punched your bestfriend in the face right?!" I giggle at what he said and come over and take his hand in mine.
"I dont know who that was, but that was not my bestfriend!" I wash up his hand and wrap it with a bandage. Then I kiss his hand and let it down. "Let's go now. And try not to injure your hand anymore!"
