Aria shook her hands in nervousness. She was standing right outside Cedric's and Kian's apartment, ready to bare her soul in front of the person that she liked. She decided that it was better to get it out of her chest than to let her feelings rot inside her heart. She thought about this a lot, and she decided that taking the risk and being rejected would be more bearable than having to hide her feelings for god knows how long. She also decided to confront him about what she saw in the club and if it's true that he had changed his past habits because of her. She raised her fist up to knock on the door, but it suddenly opened before her skin could even make contact with the wood. Her eyes widened in surprise when she saw Cedric standing right in front of her. Cedric froze when he saw Aria with her fist up in the air. Aria cleared her throat and brought her fist down. She looked away from his eyes and tucked her hair behind her ears. "Umm, sorry. Wrong door," she was about to l
Aria wandered her eyes around the park near their apartment complex. She was already out of breath from chasing after him, and he still showed no signs of appearing. She placed her hands on her knees to catch her breath before looking for him once more. She didn't know how much he heard or saw, but she inferred that he must not have heard a lot seeing that he ran away as soon as he saw them hugging. "Where is that guy?" she muttered under her breath as she reached the playground. Just then, she saw a head of brown hair peeking over from behind the slides. She sighed and slowly walked over to him. She smiled when she saw him sitting on a swing, carelessly swinging while staring off into distant space. She sat down next to him and also rocked herself back and forth, closing her eyes momentarily to enjoy the cool and comforting breeze. The two were aware of each other's presence, and yet they hadn't spoken a single word—probably because they already knew what this will lead to.
“What are we doing here?” Cedric asked Kian, who was currently dragging him to Zeth’s office. “Aria told me to check on something,” he said. “We have work, Kian,” Cedric deadpanned. “It’s still early in the morning. We can manage,” Kian said. “Besides, Aria told me she won’t give me any kisses until I do this one for her, so….” Cedric rolled his eyes. “Must be nice.” “It is nice,” Kian teasingly smiled. “I have someone to hold after a tiring day; there’s always someone who greets me in the morning, and the best part is that she gives me so much joy and pleasure—“ “Alright, alright,” Cedric cut her off. “You don’t need to go that far. I’m already jealous as it is,” he muttered under his breath. “Let’s go, bro. We haven’t seen Zeth in ages too. He also still doesn’t know that you're moving to France.” “Fine,” Cedric caved in. “But we have to be back by lunch.” “Of course,” Kian smiled. “I’ll be having lunch with my baby Aria by then.” “Alright, maybe you should just do this on
“What?” Adriel exclaimed through the phone. She was all alone in their house since Aria and Kian presented to take care of Zenon. When those two finally got together, they had been playing with Zenon more often since “he makes them feel like parents,” as per their words. Now, those two are calling after her since Zenon apparently ingested something inanimate. “W—well, is he alright?” Adriel stammered. “Bring him to the hospital!” “He’s alright,” Aria reassured. “It’s a good thing that Kian knows first aid. However, he’s crying for you. Is it alright for you to come here and console him?” “Alright, alright,” Adriel nodded her head. “I’ll head out immediately after hanging up the phone.” She ended the call right away and readied her things. She borrowed one of Zeth’s cars and sped to Kian’s and Aria’s apartment complex. She wasted no time in taking the elevator to Kian’s unit. *** Zeth anxiously tapped his foot on the ground as he waited for Adriel’s arrival. Cedric chuckled as
“Adriel Summers,” he smiled up at her. Adriel looked down on her lover, still unbelieving of the current situation. Of course, she had imagined this a thousand times in her head. Being married to Zeth and having the opportunity to stay with him until the end of their lives was one of her greatest desires. Now that the moment had come, she couldn't help but be emotional. “You have changed my life in the best way possible, and I don’t think I can live without you anymore," Zeth said. “I love you so much,” tears started welling up in his eyes. “I see you every single day, and yet I still feel like I miss you. I love you so so much, but I still feel like I haven’t loved you enough. So, allow me to love you for the rest of our lives. I may not be able to promise a perfect relationship, but what I can promise is perfect love.” “Will you marry me?” he finally asked the question. It was a brief statement, but nonetheless, it was perfect. Tears started streaming down Adriel’s face the se
“Let’s sleep,” Aria said after a heavy make-out session.“What?” Kian absentmindedly said, still dazed from the heated kiss they shared. Aria giggled. “I’m tired, honey. Let’s sleep,” she said, wrapping her arms around his waist and resting her head on his chest.After a few seconds, the rise and fall of her chest started getting deeper—an indication that she had already fallen asleep. Kian looked up at the ceiling and sighed. “Aria,” he said.As expected, Aria had already fallen asleep. He closed his eyes as he placed one of his hands over his crotch. He felt his hardening member underneath his think cotton shorts. He let out a sigh of disbleief before pinching himself. "Calm down," he whispered to himself. He looked at Aria, who was peacefully sleeping beside him, and couldn't help but bite his lips. It has been about two months since they started their relationship, and everything has been great since then. Sure, they bicker from time to time, but it's really nothing serious.
"How are you doing over there, bro? Have you been to the Eiffel Tower yet?" Cedric shook his head. "Not yet. I've never really gotten the chance to tour around," he said. Kian's eyes widened in surprise. "What? But you've been there for a week. You should go around the city when you have the time!" Cedric scratched the back of his head. "It's just that—It's hard adjusting to the atmosphere here. Besides, I took care of my papers for the company transfer, and I also finished furnishing my apartment. I didn't have any time to tour around." Kian sighed. "Are you deliberately staying in your own apartment?" "No," Cedric sheepishly said. "You're lying," Kian said. "I know that you're confining yourself in your own little space once again. There's no use in lying to me, bro. I know you like I know the back of my hand." Cedric clicked his tongue. "There's nothing interesting around here!" "You haven't even tried going out yet. How would you even know?" he asked. "Come on," Kian urge
"Why are you so nervous?" Kian asked, looking at Zeth, who was pacing back and forth in the hotel room. "Fuck off," he said. Kian raised his hands up in surrender. "Damn. You don't have to be so sensitive."Zeth groaned and attempted to run his fingers through his hair. However, when he realized that his hair had already been styled, he quickly placed his hand down and continued pacing back and forth."You're making me dizzy, man. Sit down," Kian exclaimed. "Where's Cedric when you need him?" Zeth asked under his breath. "Hey," Kian said in an offended voice. "Your best man is right here!" he exclaimed, pertaining to himself. "Don't look for another person when I'm literally right here.""Yeah. You were my second option," Zeth deadpanned. "If Cedric didn't have to leave too early, then he would have been my best man."Kian rolled his eyes. "Whatever, man. You're stuck with me. And because you said that, I'm not going to comfort you. Instead, I'm going over to the bride's room upst
