Together

I stumble backwards out of his arms frightened. "Why do I want you so much?" I whisper. My hearts still pounding and my veins burn with a wanting and desire that I'm trying to fight. I hardly know him and just cause of our past lives doesn't mean I have to jump straight into it. Does it?

"I suppose because there is still a small part of you that recognises who I am and how much you love me" He says.

"But I don't want to jump into a relationship and being this close to you hurts me cause I'm not holding you" I cry tears spilling. I shake my head wiping away the tears. He steps forward to hold me and I stumble into him clenching his shirt in my fists. "My Nan's gonna kill me"

He laughs deep and rumbling. It sends shiver down my spine and I almost want to hit myself for that. "Why is that?" he asks.

"She said you were dangerous and that we would move if I didn't listen to her" I mumble into his shirt.

"Then don't tell her" He bends down to look her straight in the face.  "I can't lose you again Xaria, you have no idea how long it took me to find you this time, I'm not sure I can do it again"

"You won't lose me but.... she said that I shouldn't pursue you and if I did I'd end up dead" I say pressing myself closer to him.

"I promise that won't happen" He whispers.

"But has it happened? I presume I've had past lives.... did I die in them cause of you?" I whisper looking up at him with sad eyes.

"I don't know if it was because of me, but every time I have found you, I have lost you shortly after" he says. I look up at him and almost kiss him again but hold myself back.

"I don't want to die..... and neither do I want to be alone" I choke out.

"I promise you I will not let you die. Not this time" He holds me tightly. Its almost as if he's trying to convince me that he can protect me but something in me says he can't but I ignore it.

"Um, what are we going to do now? I don't want to be apart from you for a strange reason" I whisper. Seriously, this desire within in me doesn't want to let go of him let alone have to walk away to some other place.

"I really don't know. I don't want you to leave me either but I feel that as soon as our shift is over, you will go home to your Nan and I'll go back to my flat as though none of this has happened"

Tears spill from my eyes and I wipe them away looking at them strangely. "No" I say looking up at him. "I'm not letting you go anywhere without me" I have always been stubborn and this is one of those times where I'm going to be.

"OK then. But I don't think your Nan would be too happy to have me turning up on her doorstep" He says.

I smile happy to of got my way. "Who say's she's gonna see you? She's not getting home till 10 tonight" I giggle. I feel so happy..... and I like it.

The End
