"Stay here" I say gesturing to the seats of the large buisness building. The both sit down and I go over to the reception. "Hi"

The lady looks up and smiles. "How may I help you?"

"Um, I'm here to visit Alfred Donery" I almost whisper. The receptionist nods with a smile.

"He's on the third floor. I'll let him know you're coming up"

"Thanks" I whisper feeling the sadness wave over me. "Come on" I call to the kids and they get up following me.

"Why are we here?" Bishop asks.

"Just come on" I say. When we get to the third floor I take them to the waiting room. "Wait here and don't move. There's tv if you want" I then turn on my heels and leave. I head down the corridor and stop outside the door to Alfie's office. He was about to go into Uni last time I saw him its been 4 years. I take a deep breath and knock.

"Come in" a voice calls. My heart leaps in my chest and I open the door stepping in. Alfie's sat at his desk his eyes fixed on the computer screen. Then he looks up and freezes. I stand quietly. "Ivory..." he whispers trailing off.

"Hi, Alfie" I say with a smile. He's on his feet coming round to pull me into a hug in seconds. I gasp and all he does is hold me tightly.

"I've missed you" he whispers.

"I've missed you too" I whisper tears threatening to form. He pulls back and looks into my eyes he then does something I didn't expect him to do. Something he's only done once. He kisses me. I tense then slowly feeling the warm buzz settle over me I relax. He pulls back.

"Ivory.... I think I made a mistake"

"Huh?" I say still in a state of blurry sight and scattered thoughts.

"I want to come back" he states.

"Wait, w-with me?" He nods, smiling. "B-but I have responsibilities now. I have students"

He looks slightly hurt. "Please Ivory. I've no happiness since I left you"

I close my eyes and take a deep breath. This is all too sudden. I was only coming to say hello and he dumps all this on me. Although, I do miss him and it wouldn't stop me from training the others. Alfie already knows it all.

"Okay" I say opening my eyes. He smiles and kisses me again. "When can you come back?"

"This weekend" he says with a sigh. I nod and kiss his cheek.

"I'll wait till then" I say and leave. I don't speak to either Bishop or Rihana on the way back but its late when we do get back and I head straight to bed. Alfie.... he wants to be with me. A smile breaks across my lips as I curl up.

The End
