Sunday 25th. Girls reunion @ Mace to plan our holidays!
"For you" Mace gave me a glass of vodka but I passed it to Cam.
"omg you're not drinking!" Cam yelled laughing "this is a miracle!"
"it's not funny" I sighed "but I wanna stay sober for my trip"
"When are you leaving?" Jessie asked as she sat next to me.
"In 6 hours" I answered looking at my chanel watch "I hate to fly in a normal flight"
"Then why don't you take you father's jet?" Lex raised one eyebrow glaring at me "Please don't tell me you'll travel in business class"
"I will" I sighed lighting a cigarette "Because Jake said that we are not spoiled kids, that we have to act like anyone else and blah blah blah"
"And then he buys you a huge diamond ring" Ar giggled.
"Exactly!" I yelled nodding at her "bullshit!"
All the girls were drinking and having fun, while I could't help thinking about what was expecting me. Two whole weeks just me and Jake, around the Europe. I was afraid we would have killed each other, or, even worse, that everything would have been perfect and I could't have been able anymore to stay without him.
I shivered and went to the terrace, enjoying the beautiful skyline of NY at night.
"Hey" Jessie leant next to me "what are you doing here alone?"
"Nothing" I shrugged looking at her blankly "just...maybe two weeks are too long for being with Jake all the time"
"No way" she smiled "it's gonna be awesome, I'm sure"
"Probably you're right. I heard you'll go away with Liam"
"Yep" she blushed then looked away, staring at the empire state building which was in front of us "I know that we're good for each other. But I keep on being worried about Seb. Don't you miss him?"
"Like air" I smiled sadly "But I'll see him during this trip, hopefully we'll meet in Berlin. Do I have to say something to him from you?"
"No, actually it's unnecessary, but thanks" she beamed, then she tought about it and added "well maybe you could just give him a hug from me. But don't say that it's from me"
"I will" I winked at her while she went away, letting her place to Ar.
"Are you sad huni?" she whispered in my ear with her sweet voice "what's wrong?"
"I'm worried" I finally found the courage to spoke "but it's not about me"
"And who is that about?" she looked at the ceiling with a toughtful expression "Jake?"
"No, it's about you" I said with no turn of phrase "I'm not liking this thing you have with Andrew"
"I noticed it" she crossed her arms on the chest angrily "but this is really not your business"
"Since we're friends it is" I stared at her significantly "I know Andrew. Think about what he has done to me, to you...to everyone!"
"Sorry Soph but this is really not about you. You have to stop trying to control other people's lives. I like him and that's enough."
"Do you like him more than Steven?" I knew that was a blow below the belt, but her words hurted me. I did everything for her good, for god sake! I was not a controlling one. Maybe just a little, but it belonged to my bossy attitude.
"Yes. No. Maybe." she dhrugged "I don't know. This is your last night in NY, I don't wanna spend it fighing"
"You're right" I took a deep breath, surrending "Just be careful ok?"
I went back to the living room of Mace's house, holding Ar arm in arm, and I greeted the girls, my eyes were tear filled. I was going to miss them a lot.
Later at Jake's apartment Lex and Ar were sitting on the bed staring at me packing.
"Why the hell are you bringing a helmet?" Lex asked curiously.
"Jake is bringing her to the Isle of Man" Ar answered for me "it's famous for motorcycle racing events"
"And where is this unknonw island?" she laughed "I hope it's one of the Hawai because my dear Shop you need a tan"
"Haha" I faked a smile and rolled my eyes "it's in the UK"
"awwww! British boys" Lex rolled on the bed squeezing a pillow on her chest "I wanna come with you too"
"She's with a hot american guy" Ar opened a bottle of beer and sipped it "so forgive british boys and their damn cute accent"
"She could go to say hi to Jude" Lex yelled like she had the best idea of the word "she could go to London!"
"I haven't think about Jude" I lied "but I'll go to London"
"Good girl" Ar stood up and hugged me "just Jake"
"Yep" I nodded "and hey Ar have you found out something about where John has been buried?"
"Not yet" her mouth twitched "I'm working on it, but not think about it for now"
"It's time to go babe" Jake went into the room, suddently I felt lost.
"I wish I can put you in my bag" I sobbed hugging both Lex and Ar.
"We'll miss you" they said in unison.
"I'll miss you too" I smiled then went away, closing the door behind me.
"Are you ready babe?" Jake took my hand and kissed me softly.
"For sure" I said walking out the building.
[My dear nycs girls, I'll leave for Norway on friday and I won't be on for two weeks, so this is my last story for a while...I'm gonna miss you all! <3 ]
