Demetreus sat in the chair peacefully, every couple of seconds he would take a sip of water. 

"Are you feeling better?" I said, as I placed my hand on his shoulder.

Demetreus nodded his head, implying yes. I walked over to the Starbucks' main station.

"Demetreus, can I grabbed something from the back counter? I'll pay for it."

Demetreus nodded his head again, implying yes.

I grabbed a vanilla bean scone; I took a knife and cut it up. Put it on a coffee filter and took it over to him.

"Here... eat this... gotta get the sugar up." I said passing him the food.

Demetreus uttered, "Thanks... I'm sor-"

I interrupted him: "Its fine, it happens to the best of us."

Demetreus smiled, " thank you, I am starting to feel a lot better."

"Good. Don't get up too fast, though."

I grabbed him by his arm, and gently lifted him up so that he could stand up on his feet.

Demetreus stood up and tried to turn to me. His leg got caught on the bottom of the chair, and as he started to fall, I saw him trying to break loose. I subconsciously but quickly caught him, I spun him so that instead of falling on the floor, he fell on me. But he didn't fall. His hand landed on my chest and his head by my neck. I took a few steps back to handle the impact of the fall. It was weird.

I thought: I don't know why I did that...

It feels like time was frozen for a split second or at least time was moving so slow. I felt like I held him for hours, but there were merely seconds.

The grip... the hug.. it felt like laying in warm and freshly washed sheets.

He looked up and for a merely second, I lost everything.

And then he pushed off of me.

I don't know what is going on...

Demetreus uttered, "I'm sorry... I lost my balance. I didn't mean to touch you like that."

The End
