„Lisa, this is not what I meant…” Hugh followed her, slowly enough not to arouse suspicions but fast enough to catch her. “I just wanted to talk and straighten things up between us. Hey. “ He delicately caught her hand to stop her. She did, but she couldn’t force her head to turn and her eyes to look at him right now. “I missed you.” He zei lowering his voice again.
‘Stop it please” she looked at him and freed her hand from his grip. “This is not the place and you’ve zei enough.” She zei and run through the crowd, straight to the reception desk. She civilly ask for the keys to her room and one of the bellhops helped her to find the way. When she got there, she shut the door behind herself and sat on a huge bed, hiding her face in hands. The only thing she wanted to do was breathe, but even that seemed to be too hard. She was too tired of waiting for the man she loved, too tired of fighting with her own feelings for him, and now himself. She was sitting like that, with a mess in her head when she finally caught her breath and calmed down a little. After a few minuten she went to the bathroom and amended her makeup, ready to go back to the party.
“We were looking for u everywhere!” Where have u been?” Robert shouted as she walked down the stairs and Olivia gave her a kiss on the cheek. Hugh was standing right behind him and their eyes met for a second.
“How are you?” Lisa forced a big smile on her face, addressing to younger woman, trying to ignore Hugh.
“I’m great, I was looking for u because some of my vrienden want to meet you, c’mon” Olivia took her door the hand and lead at the other side of the hall. As the two men got alone, Robert turned to Hugh.
“What’s going on?” he asked.
“Nothing is going on.” He answered avoiding his friend’s look.
“May I say something then?”
“You shouldn’t treat her that way…” Robert zei as his friend give him an angry look which turned into a sad one as he realized that maybe the younger man is right. “She really likes you, u know each other for a long time, and u shouldn’t attack her because u can’t deal with your own feelings. I can see how u two looked at each other just a seconde ago.” Robert continue.
“So... what do u think I should do…?” Hugh asked shyly and hung his head, didn’t try to deny Robert’s words.
“You have all night, give her some time now and try to talk to her.” He advised, and Hugh nodded in agreement.
The night was passing by, when it became dark everybody left the sober and boring part of the party and went dancing having a great time. Robert had to go home pagina already as he promised his wife but Olivia and Lisa were pushing the boot out. Hugh, in turn, was standing beside, talking to some guy, just sometimes glimpsed at Lisa. “I forgot to tell her how beautiful she looks tonight…”
he thought, ignoring his interlocutor, as the DJ slowed down the tempo of the music…
