Kurt Moore knows he isn’t your typical ideal man. Aside from being quiet and aloof, he’s also not fond of talking and socializing. He understands his responsibilities, though. He’s reliable when it comes to work. When he found someone he likes, he’s at a loss how to approach her. He made a misstep with her and thought that would be the end of it. He’s got no chance to make it right. He messed up. He can only watch from afar. He can only grit his teeth as he watches someone else be with her. Only, that didn’t seem to be the end of the story.View More
“Is everything okay back home?” Steven asked as we sat down at the pantry. I saw him waving Ella over to our table.“Yes.” I answered simply as I opened the packed lunch I ordered from a nearby restaurant.“Why don’t you have a lunchbox, then?” He sounded intrigued.“Audrey slept in.” I remembered her expression when I woke her up before I went to work. She wasn’t very flustered, which I initially thought was odd. When she revealed that she’s pregnant, I was only surprised momentarily. About four months have passed since she had a miscarriage. Ever since we unknowingly lost that child, I guess both of us decided that we do want to have children.“Damn. I don’t think I’ve seen you smile like this. What’s going on?” It was Ella who commented. I checked my expression, erasing the smile that crept on my face.“Yeah, man, even I had goosebumps. What&rsq
Near the end of the second week following her incident, Audrey exhibited a strange behavior. While she’d been clingy these last couple of weeks, this time she’s insisting on having sex. I don’t think she’s fully recovered, though. The doctor said it could take a month.I still think that I should’ve been careful back then and I wouldn’t make the same fatal mistake twice. I did notice Audrey getting frustrated, though. When she insisted on it, I had to keep my distance. For her own good.One time, as soon as I get home from work, she had me sit down and read all these articles she found. She’s basically trying to back up her claim that she’s fine and she needed the intimacy as much as she wanted it.She went as far as threatening to find someone else. Though it isn’t entirely believable, just the thought of it still rubbed me the wrong way.I pulled her by the waist and asked in a barely-controlled angr
Our days remained the same. In our own odd way, we get along really well. She’s very accommodating of me, and I’m more than happy to accommodate whatever she wants, too. After the wedding, we’ve gotten more intimate with each other. I think one of the reasons is the fact that she’s finally gotten to hear me say I love her. Hearing the words, on top of my possessive and caring actions I have towards her, assure her how much important she is to me.But life sometimes hits you in a way you never expect.Audrey had a miscarriage and how it happened scared me. She bled and her cry of pain is still fresh in my head. The doctor explained the situation to me but I’m still mad at myself. I should’ve taken better care of her. I shouldn’t have been rough.I watched her as she sleeps, holding her hand and feeling her warmth. She’s looking better, the color back on her face. There aren’t any complications, but her body is
For some reason, I feel unsettled as the day of our wedding nears. Despite the last few weeks we’ve been together and I get to know her more and her feelings, I still can’t shrug off the possibility that she’ll run away at the last minute. She’s not going to leave, right? She’s not going to dump me, right? Every night I would hug her close as we sleep. I would kiss her and give her pleasure. I’m treating her right, aren’t I?On the day of the wedding, she made one request and I wrestled within myself how to do it for her.“Just once, I want to hear you say it.” She said, asking me to tell her I love her.I pressed a kiss on her forehead, telling her to come out soon so we can go and not be late. It took her fifteen minutes before she came out. She smiled, but I noticed a tinge of redness on her eyes. She cried, didn’t she?I felt a twinge in my heart as I watched her keeping her smile, repeating
When I got home one time, I immediately noticed the difference in her actions. She didn’t greet me. She wasn’t looking at me. Her expression shows she’s angry about something. Given the way she’s treating me, I could surmise it’s about me. I frowned, though. What did I do? It isn’t her birthday, is it? We are yet to get married so this isn’t about forgotten anniversaries. I tried to recall if she asked me to do something, but there’s nothing. I watched her as she prepared dinner. She looked better, except for her expression and demeanor. I sighed when she called me to eat, still without sparing me a glance. I sat quietly on a chair and watched her as she eats haphazardly. It’s like stress-eating.“What’s wrong?” I finally asked, since she’s not keen on speaking to me.“Jeanette.” She stated in a clipped tone as she squinted her eyes at me.“What about her?” I co
She’s chatty. I knew that. She keeps talking at home even when I don’t reply. When she asks me something, I only briefly reply to her.“I love it when you talk to me.” She stated when I asked her why she kept staring at me. I pursed my lips at her statement. What do I tell her?“What can I do to make you talk?” She insisted and she clung to my arm when I tried to disentangle myself from her. I like the times we watch tv together and she sits very close. I like listening to her voice as she comments on random things we see on tv. She does ask me a lot but I don’t always answer.That night, she tried asking short questions and I tried my best to give her direct answers. In a way, I related every question to her. When she asked what I like about her, I could only say “you”. I like everything about her and I’m starting to realize it’s true. I’ve wanted her then and she yielded.
She’s getting off work much earlier than we anticipated. She’s allowed to go after only one week. She accepted. When she talked to me about it, I only said that it’s better. She smiled upon hearing my answer.The following week, in which she’s to start staying at home, she surprised me by preparing breakfast and packing me a lunchbox. She was shy on the first day, ordering me to take the lunchbox without explaining what it was. When I looked at it as I sat in my cubicle, I couldn’t help the smile on my face. I got teased for it so I cleared my face of any expression.“Audrey made a lunchbox for lover boy.” Steven announced to Audrey’s former work-mates when we arrived at the pantry for lunch. Ella talked back to him and they joined forces in teasing me. I ignored them as I focused on the food Audrey prepared for me. She’s a good cook and lunch tasted delicious.I start to realize that we do have a number of t
On Monday, we’ve learned that we had to wait for thirty days before we can get married. I decided to buy her rings. She deserves everything and I’m going to give them to her.She stared blankly as I pulled her to a jewelry store. It unsettles me that she thinks this is something I wouldn’t do. She did brighten up while choosing the wedding rings we’re going to use. When I told her to choose another ring as her engagement ring, she blinked her eyes a few times. She laughed lightly as she humored me by choosing one she likes.As we walked, I got her a bouquet of flowers, too. If I knew she has feelings for me, I really should’ve asked her out months ago. We could have gone on dates, before I propose to her and before we have our wedding. Could I make it up to her? She looked happy throughout the day, though. I held her hand as we walk and she isn’t pulling away from me. That gesture assured me.The next day at the
