Part 67

- Maybe someone wants ice cream? Asked Raul.
- We want. I said.
- LetĎs go to buy it. Ony said.
- Basty itĎs enought to ruin my life. I said.
- You are mine. Basty said.
- In your deams. I have never been yours and I will never be. I said.
- We will see this. He said.
- Oh God why he is so stupid? I asked.
- ItĎs enough . Said Javi.
- We will come back to this thing. Basty said.
- Sure, one day ask me to the cup of coffee and we will continue. I said.
- Why not. He said.
Monika started to laugh.
- Something is wrong to you? Basty asked.
- No, everything is just perfect. She said.
Guys came back with ice creams.
- Oh my favorite you havenít forgot it. I said.
- Itís impossible to forget it. Raul said.
- What pettiness we are. Said Mikel and Monika hit to his side with elbow.
- What? He asked.
- Your comments are in wrong time and wrong place. Monika said.
- You know that I am in Bastyís side. He said.
- Stop it ok? We will talk at home.
We ate the ice creams. Ony and Javi found what to talk about with Raul, but not Mikel and Basty, well they didnít tried to search it. Started to become late.
- Letís go to our home. Said Javi.
- I will go home. Said Raul.
- Why? I asked.
- I am a little bit tired after the flight.
- Then go and take some rest, we will meet tomorrow. I said.
- Sure. Raul said and kissed me.
While going to home, guys stopped to the shop and bought some alcohol. When we came back at home where so fun as long time ago.
- Shall we do something crazy? Monika asked.
- Of course. I said.
- Girls will you join us? Monika asked.
Minna and Dimitra nodded. We turned on the music and started to dance. Boys were sitting, talking and drinking.
- As I can see Javi you are not in my side. Said Basty.
- Laura is my sister. Said Javi.
- But she donít love Raul. Said Mikel.
- Maybe she will fall in love with him. Just donít say that she should wait until you will leave Anna. Said Javi.
- So what? If she loves then it means that she can wait. Said Mikel.
- She already have waited for 4 years, I think that itís enough. Said Javi.
- You are totally not in Bastyís side. Said Mikel.
- He has slept with my siter. Javi said.
- Thatís normal all adults are doing it. Said Mikel.
- For God sake Mikel he is hurting her. I wish you would see her after it. Said Javi.
- She wanted it. Said Basty.
- Show me which one doesnít want to? Asked Mikel.
- If Monika would hear it. Said Ony.
- Ok I shut up. Said Mikel.
- You are drunk. Said Javi.
- Not yet but itís enough. Said Mikel.
Monika went to the guys.
- Mikel shall we dance? She asked.
- Take him until he is totally drunk. Said Javi.
Mikel stood up.
- You are drunk. Said Monika.
- Ssshhh I donít need any comments. He said.
- I donít like you like this. Monika said.
- I am not the only one that is drunk, Basty too.
- I donít care about him. I love you. She said.
I turned on salsa music, because I saw that Monika is going to dance with Mikel. That he was drunk didnít disturb to him dance. He took Monikaís hands and put it to his hips and they both started to dance. Monika was really good at it too. We tried to dance like them, but it was too difficult for us, so we were laughing more. Suddenly Basty stood up and came to us.
- I donít feel good. He said.
- Itís your fault. You shouldnít drink so much. I said.
- Donít be like this with him. Minna said.
- Maybe you should take him to the toilet. Dimitra said.
- Ok. I said
Basty putted his hand on my shoulder and we went. Just we came he ran to the toilet, so I let him alone. After few minutes I knocked, but he didnít answered, so I slowly opened doors and came in. basty was sitting on the floor and crying. I went to him.
- Whatís happened? I asked.
- Nothing. He said.
- For nothing nobody is crying and the most men.
- I love you. He said.
- Donít start.
- I will leave Anna, just be with me. Basty said.
- I canít. You hurt me too much. Itís better that one suffers and not two. Raul and Anna will suffer.
- ButÖ..
- You should remember that I am before engagement. I said.

Part 68

We were looking to each other and not saying anything..
- I think that you will have to stay here. I said.
I took Bastyís hand and we went to my room.
- You will let me sleep here? He asked.
- And where you will sleep more? I asked.
- I can sleep on sofa.
- Donít start.
Basty started to take off your clothes. When I saw his body, shivers ran throw my body. Basty lay down.
- You perfume, I can feel it in your bed. He said.
- Go to sleep. I said.
- And you wonít go? He asked.
- No. I said and went to balcony.
There I putted my fingers on my lips and remembered my and Raul kiss. Have I started to feel something to him? Thatís impossible I canít love two men. Or maybe if I will fall in love with Raul I will forget Basty? I would give anything that I would be happy. For a while I was sitting in balcony, but when I felt that it become a bit cold I came back to room. I heard how text message came, it was from Raul: ď This night I gave you all the starts. Have a dream with me. Thanks that you let me love and also fell a love from you. I love you. RaulĒ. I looked to Basty and write back to Raul: ďThanks that you made me happy. Love you. Laura.Ē I put on my pajama and lay down, next to Basty. He came closer to me.
- Your body. He said.
- Donít tell me that you have watched. I said.
- A bit. Why you are so scared? I already saw you naked.
- I donít get why Anna had fall in love with you.
- It seems for the same as you. He said.
- I donít love you, it was only a passion. I wanted to have you in the bed and I got.
- You hate me, thatís why you say so.
- No, I am saying it with calm heart.
- LiarÖÖ
- No. I said.
I turned to the other side and turned off the light. In the room was very quiet, after a while I fall asleep. I woke up in the morning, but I havenít found Basty near me. I dressed up and went downstairs. Everyone were already there.
- Where is Basty? I asked.
- He left yesterday after he came back from the toilet. Javi said.
As I understood we waited until I will fall asleep and then just left. Well what he could do after all the things I have said to him.
- Where did you disappear yesterday? Monika asked.
- I took Basty to the toilet and then I went to sleep, I felt a bit tired. I said.
Whole day I spend with Raul. I understood that we will be a wonderful boyfriend. Passed two months and again changed the date of Bastyís marriage. That day everybody decided to go somewhere, but I didnít felt very good.
- Whatís happened to you darling? Raul asked.
- I donít feel very good. I said, putted my hand on my mouth and ran to the toilet.
Mikel took his mobile phone and went that anybody would hear him.
- Yes? Said Basty.
- Hey. Look I am not that good at those things about pregnancy, but as I know that women feels sick and she pukes. Said Mikel
- And what do you want from me? Monika is pregnant? Basty asked
- No, Laura.
- What? Really?
- Well I donít know for sure, but I think so. For a couple of days she feels sick.
- I havenít seen her for 2 months. I missed her a lot. Said Basty.
- Well maybe now you will have opportunity to see her.
- But if she is pregnant, maybe itís Rauls baby.
- I donít think that they have slept. Monika would already know it.
- But maybe she didnít said it to you. Said Basty.
- I will found out and I will tell to you. Mikel said.
- Thanks bro.
I came back.
- I fell so sick.
- Maybe you are pregnant? Monika asked.
- We didnít had sex. Said Raul.
Came Mikel. Then I understood my night with Basty. OMG just not that.
- I just ate something. I said.
- Maybe. Said Mikel.
I understood that Mikel already said everything to Basty.
- Then we wonít go anywhere. Said Raul.
- Yes we will go, I donít want you all make sad. I said.
- You will suffer and then you think that you wonít ruin everything? Monika asked
- Stay at home and we will go, because we need to be with Raul, he is new here. Said Mikel.
- Good idea. Said Monika.
- Are you sure? I asked.
- Sure, donít be afraid we will take care of him.
Raul came to me and kissed me.
- I love you. I said.
So they left me alone. I decided to take a walk to the city centre. When I was going I heard that somebody was shouting my name. I turned around and saw a girl. It was Patricia. We have studied together in Greece. We went to the cafť.
- What are you doing in Madrid? I asked.
- Well my cousin is going to get married. Those weddings changed the date lots of times. She said.
I have heard it somewhere.
- Your cousin is Anna? I asked.
- Do you know her? Patricia asked.
- Not her, but her husband.
- Are you friends?
- no, I just know him as my brother firend.
- I will tell to you one thing, she donít love him as he donít love her.
- What do you mean? I asked.
- She has a lover. He will found out it one day. She said.
- But maybe only after marriage.
- I wish it could happen now. I donít want that he would suffer. He is cool guy.
- But if she doesnít say it to him, then it means that she wants marriage.
- She doesnít. I am sorry but I have to go. See you next time.

Part 69

I was sitting and I couldnĎt believe what I have just heard. Basty broke my heart and now the same happened to him. For it my heart was happy and also sad. I didnĎt wanted to see him suffering., but he will regret gor everything that he done to me. I stood up and went to the park. There I saw Anna, she was waiting for someone. I decided to look after her. After 10 minutes came brown haired guy and they kissed. Patricia didnĎt lied to me. I didnít know what I should do. Should I call to Basty or just go to his apartment and say everything to him. After thinking I took the second thing. Passed half an hour and I was near his doors. I knocked and he opened. He was a bit surprised by seeing me.
- Laura. He said.
- Hi, look I came for a while. I wanted to say something to you about Anna.
- Whatís happened? He asked.
- Well sheÖ She has other guy I saw it with my own eyes. I said.
- How do you dare to say this to me? We love each other and you wonít break up us. He said.
- Itís true.
- We used each other, so forget me.
- Donít believe then. I said.
- You want to make me suffer. He said.
Those words that we used each other hurt my heart more. Down my cheek ran a tear and I turned to go. Basty grabbed my hand and that moment I fall on the floor. Basty cached me.
- LauraÖ.LauraÖ. Oh my God.
He took me on his hand and went to his room. He laid me down on the bed and called to the ambulance. I still wasnít reacting. When ambulance arrived they looked after me.
- Is something serious? Basty asked.
- No, everything is ok with her. She is about two months pregnant. Congratulations and now we will go, because we canít help her with it. Said doctor.
When they left Basty sat next to me. He took my hand.
- Under your heart you have my baby. Now I will be able to leave Anna and we will be happy together. Basty said.
Slowly I opened my eyes.
- Whatís happened to me?
- Well you fall down and I called to the ambulance. He said.
- What did they said? I asked.
Then Basty bended and kissed me. I answered to him.
- You are pregnant from me. Basty said.
I was shocked.
- What? I asked.
- Under your heart you have my baby.
- He is not yours he is Raulís. I said.
- Donít lie.
- Every person makes mistakes.
- Itís enough to lie.
- So you stop act like you know everything very good. After you I was with Raul.
- But after us passed two months and now you are pregnant two months.
I understood that is not worth to argue with him. Itís better to shut up to me. I lowered my eyes and I felt how Basty all the time was looking to me. I lifter my head and my eyes saw a necklace on his neck, it was mine.
- You have my necklace. I said.
- After Monika gave it to me, I always have it with me. Itís only thing that reminds you.
- You can take it off, because it doesnít fits to you.
- If you think that I will give it to you back, then you are wrong. He said.
- I donít need it, I will buy new one.
Basty turned to the night table and took box. In it was bracelet. On it was written our name and heart.
- It was for you. I had to give it to you that day when you were leaving, but you just left without saying goodbye.
- It was the best.
He took my hand and putted that bracelet on it.
- I love you. Basty said.
I took my hand.
- Are you afraid of me? He asked.
- No, just I changed. I am not the same stupid teenager. I said.
- What are you going to do with baby? He asked.
- I will be young mum and Raul dad.
- For how long you will lie to me? Basty asked.
- Itís true.
- We will see that. When baby will be born, I will make DNR test.
I tried to be strong, but it seemed that my lie was not enough strong as his true.
- I have to go home.
- Doctor said that you have to stay in bed.
- I will lay down at home.
- But at home you will be alone. He said.
- And I donít need it. I said.
I stood up.
- Thanks for the bracelet. I said and left.
In my head was spinning only one thing that I am going to be mother. I wanted to say it to Monika, but I didnít have enough courage for it. Monika doesnít know anything about whatís happened between me and Basty. Maybe I donít need that baby? If Raul will leave me, I will be alone. And for what my life is like this? Until I came home my opinion changed 20 times. The last decision was that I am going to keep the baby and I donít care what everybody are going to say, I wonít give up. I was like on the wings. Everybody was having fun.
- Itís pity that Laura wasnít able to come with us. Said Monika.
- Yeah itís a bit sad without her. Said Dimitra.
- Itís interesting whatís happened to her. Said Monika.
- We will found out when we will come back and now letís go to swim to the lake. Said Minna.
- Agree. Said Dimitra.
Girls took off their clothes and went to the water. Monika went and she felt how something swam near her legs.
- Hey girls here are something. She said.
Monika turned to them and saw that Dimi and Minna werenít anymore in the water. Again Monika felt the same. After few momentís she was under the water. She started to shout, but when she was under the water she saw Mikel. Mikel started to laugh.
- Itís not funny. You scared me. Monika said.
- Itís only me. Mikel said.
- Well yeah itís only you.
Monika started to go out of the water.
- Are you angry? Come on Monika come back. It was just a joke.
- You will regret for this. She mumbled. You are very good and left me there alone. She said to the girls.
