Demetre made his way towards the conference room. The brief silence between then revealed so much at that very moment. She was holding back from him. Her heart was racing like never before. The purse rush of blood pumping through her veins, and the uneven breathing told him she had a lot on her mind. Her warm hand grasped against his cool flesh, it tightened with each step.
Gently he ran his fingers over hers and silently tried to ease whatever plagued her, but the more he tried to, the more unsuccessful he found himself.
“My love, what troubles you?” he said as he stopped in his tracks and pulled her hand up to his lips and kissed it. The sweet scent of her flesh made him hunger to have her, to taste her, but he had to control himself, and his impulses.
He caught the split second as her eyes tore away from him before returning.
“Nothing, I’ll be fine,” she replied
That was a lie and he knew it. She had the tendency to give herself away even when she didn’t think so. The “I’ll be fine” was her way of trying to get him to drop the subject.He hated when she did that.
“I will ask you again, what troubles you? Don’t lie to me. I know you better than you think.”
Letting out a sight he gazed deep into her beautiful eyes and waited for her to reply. He hated being stern with her, but it was the only way to get her to confess what she tried to keep from him.
“Don’t trouble yourself with my problems. You have enough to worry about as it is. You don’t need anymore,” she replied before she gently tugged on his arm to walk again.
Demetre stood as still as a statue and didn’t budge.
“When will it finally sink through into that stubborn head of yours. You are my priority. Your troubles are my troubles. Your worries are my worries. The pain that you feel is one I feel as well. Now answer me before I loose my temper and force you to answer.
Lucy closed her eyes and sucked in a trembling breath.
“I…..”, her voice faltered.
“What is it?”
“I don’t belong here. Not in this place, and certainly not with you.”
