Blessing stared at Nathalie in shock. “You mean you just let him off the hook like that?, you have known this guy for ninteen years which is definitely not beans. Keep using the soft hand for this guy and he would end up dumping you. Guys likes fresh things, you are not getting any younger and you wont wait for him forever. You are twenty nine years old for crying out loud!” She said exasperated.
Nathalie and her friends were hanging out and she had opened up to them.
“Blessing would you let her be?, do you think rushing Xavier would get the relationship anywhere?, it is clear that they need time” Sophie said frowning slightly.
“He might just be using her” Blessing countered. All Nathalie could do was to sit and watch her friends battling their heads off for her.
For the rest of that day Nathalie kept pondering.
Could it be true?
Could he be using her after all this years, it made little sense. Fifteen years of friendship, four years of dating, which made ninteen years of knowing Xavier and nothing to show for it.
Nathalie buried her face in the pillow. She felt like a confused teenager again, felt like picking the flowers and asking if he loved her. She knew he once loved her, but did he still love her, did he?
? ? ? ? ? ?
Xavier laughed at the joke Peter made “my girlfriend could be dramatic but i still love her, which i hope she doesn’t doubt”
Peter chuckled, staring at his friend with mock pity.
“Girls are girls, they always doubt, they always have trust issues, it runs in their blood” Peter said with a smirk, and all Xavier could do was to hope that his case was different, that his girlfriend didn’t doubt his love for her.
After leaving Peter’s, he went to Nathalie’s house. He had asked her to move in with him, but for some reason unknown to him, she had said no.
Pressing the doorbell for the sixth time and still no answer. He called Nathalie’s line, and after five minutes, she flung the door open.
“What do you want?” She asked rudely and Xavier stared at her in shock. Not because of the way she spoke to him, but of the way she looked. Her hair was a mess unlike the always composed Nathalie. Her eyes were puffy like she had been sleeping all day. She had sleeping bags beneath her eyes and most of all, she stunk of alcohol.
“What happened?, i left you for a day and you become a hot mess” Xavier said.
Nathalie rolled her eyes “because you never called”she muttered walking towards a sofa.Xavier followed suit, closing the door behind him.
“Because i hadn’t called, i was busy, what is the matter with you?”
She ignored his last question. “Busy?, why wouldn’t you be, when you have every girl at your beck and call” she said angrily.
“You are way too possesive” he said smirking.
Nathalie just stared at him. What a jerk!. May be she was a tad bit too possesive, but why wouldn’t she be when presently they spent most of their time quarelling. She was only being careful, she toldherself. Okay, fine, she was plain scared, scared that some other girl could snatch him any moment from now.
“I wish i knew what was going through that pretty thick skull of yours” Xavier said observing her.
Nathalie glared at him and he raised his hands up in surrender “okay i give up” he walked up to her and held her.
“Why dont we go on a vacation. I see you’ve been stressed a little too much lately” Xavier said softly and was happy to see a smile begining to form on her lips. A vacation was exactly what she needed, she thought.
“Yes i dont mind, but i wouldn’t want to keep you from your work” she said staring up at him.
“I will take a week leave, you know i would do anything to be with you” he said and she on the other hand wanted to believe it, she really did.
