[sorry i have been off, i was grounded]

I opened the doors to my penthouse to see Adam waiting there, just at the time he had told me he would be. If anything he was punctual, which was more or less a good quality. However these idol thoughts disappeared as I saw him.

His appearance was always striking, leather jacket and piercing blue eyes that seemed to do more than just stop a heart or two. I starred into them now but read the reserved look they had to them, I strayed from his eyes to realize his whole face was contorted to look emotionless, like a plant canvass but I had a feeling whatever was concealed by this facade would not be to my liking and set my stomach in a nervous knot. 

"Hello." He said mildly, as he tugged a corner of his mouth into a smile that seemed out of place on his unreadable face. "Hello stranger." I smiled, not letting the sense of foreboding I had change the way I acted, after all I probably was letting my nerves get to me. "Ready?" He asked trying not to look at me for too long. 

I sighed unhappily, i had spent an hour curling my hair to perfection and picking an outfit to tie everything together. Yet not it seemed wasted, like a pair of three year old True Religions would have the same effect. Nodding in response I shut the door to my penthouse and walked dutifully beside him. 

A cab drove us out away from the flashing lights of the city, and into a place I knew little of. Small talk about nothing lapsed into an unliftable silence as the drive droned on. In this time I gave myself time to ponder the possible reasons for his behavior, however none of them seemed logical so I decided why should it matter? Tonight we would be together and any amount of time with Adam made me happy for whatever reason that may be. 

-----

A candle lit table seated by itself, the other tables scattered far away in this romantic setting was where we sat. I sipped my wine only to give me something to do while Adam starred at me, until finally he spoke. "Lauren, I know things have been confusing between us...." He trailed off looking off into the night. "But we should be together." I said warmly. Shaking his head Adam would not even look at me, "You are supposed to be with someone you love." He said slowly. "Adam, I love you." I said boldly, which caused him to snap back to attention. "And you love me." I furthered smiling. 

"Lauren I don't love you." He said harshly. It was then his mask broke and I could see what was under it, it was angry and resigned. "What?" I asked heart snapping in two. "I do not love you, I used to but no longer." He said fiercely. "Love doesn't disappear." I answered in a whisper.

"I DON'T LOVE YOU." He said loudly. "YES YOU DO!" I cried, tears streaking my face. "Love fades Lauren." And with that he turned and stormed off leaving me sitting alone tears sliding down my face. If there was such thing as luck I was gifted with none of it in life.

The moment was to silent now I yearned for something to break it, and to my rescue came a buzzing phone. "Hello?" I asked in a voice thick with emotion. "Oh Lauren, its Kiana, whats the matter?" She asked. 

It was then I told her everything.

Later it crossed my mind she knew just when to call but I thought nothing of it, after all what were bestfriends for?
