Don't Tell Anyone We Kissed (Book 1) - COMPLETED
Author: Hatewish

Chapter 61
I love you, Alexine.

Ethan

I stared at her for good 5 minutes, i think. I had so much to say, but my tongue was too weak to let me speak.  I stood up from my bed and went near her, because if I wasn’t going to speak, I might as well do something.

            I stood up and reached for Lexi, wanting to embrace her for the last time, but she tensed, so I stopped. “I’m—sorry.”

            “Did you make me come here so you can be all touchy? Because I—“

I hushed her with a kiss on her lips, but that was all I could manage to do; to touch her lips with mine. I could no longer reach for her soul. I could no longer desire to own her fragile little self. I could no longer have her. “Atleast... Let me tell you that I love you.” I murmured into her lips.

“You don’t love me.” She whispered. I could feel her lips trembling, she must have felt the jolt of pain I also felt; the pain of wanting something so bad, and yet you know for yourself you can never have it again, it makes you want to cry. “And... Don’t... Don’t ever touch me again.”

I smiled weakly and distanced myself from her a little, letting strands of her hair pull away from my hand. “Don’t worry, I won’t be around too long.”

“That’s good.” She said. “What do you want from me? If you’re going to say goodbye, save it. You’ve already left me lots of times. I’ve had enough.”

“Then I guess we have nothing more to talk about.” I said, even though that’s a lie. “There are a lot of things I would like to tell you right now, Alexine, but everything—everything that’s happening right now, the answers shouldn’t come from me. I know you have a lot of questions. And I most definitely know that you’re mad at me, but please, believe me for the last time... I have never, ever loved anyone as amazing as you. You would always be my little Alexine.”

“That’s—that’s good to know, Ethan.” She said as she turned her back from me, ready to walk out of my room.

I grabbed her, hugged her from behind and whispered: “I love you, Alexine...”
