Part 11

Lilly looked at her friend via the mirror. ‘I have serious no idea why I chose this costume Lil.. It’s everything, except me.’ Rosalyn said. ‘You bought it because I told you to, and you look breath taking in it.’ Rose rolled her eyes, and pulled the zipper up from her boot. Lilly got up, and took her mask. ‘Come, I’ll do your hair and make-up.’ Rose sat down and sighed. Basty was throwing a Halloween party, and since Rosalyn was an employee of the café, she could come too. ‘I heard that Mikel will come too.’ Lilly said with a grin. Rosalyn’s eyes lit up. Since she began as a waitress at Basty’s café -almost a year ago now- she and Mikel talked a lot. The fact he’d been through the same created a bond. Every time she pictured his face, the twinkle in his eyes or his laughter, she noticed how her heart beat faster and how her lips curled up in a smile. She’d been hoping it wasn’t true but even Charlotte had noticed it, and Charlotte was blind. ‘Really? Who told you that?’ She asked curious. ‘Oh, just someone I know..’ Rosalyn sighed. ‘Meanie..’ and she pouted her lip. ‘A good lawyer doesn’t give her sources away that easily girl.’ Lilly said with a smile and took the mascara. ‘Still a meanie..’ Rose muttered. Lilly chuckled and finished Rosalyn’s make-up. ‘Come on Catwoman, it’s time to go.’ Both took their masks and coats and left the apartment. A couple of men looked at them as they walked past them. Soon they arrived at the place Basty rented for the party. The music was already audible half way the block. The girls walked inside and brought their coats away. Both covered their face with a mask, and joined the guests.


Alcohol was served eagerly and some of the guests became either tipsy or drunk. Rosalyn had never liked to drink, at least not more than 5 glasses or wine. She tried to discuss the latest book from Stephen King which would be released soon with Mikel, but the music was too loud. ‘Shall we dance?’ Mikel yelled over the music. He drank the last bit of his beer and looked at her. She nodded and took the last sip from her wine. Mikel smiled and took her hand. They went to the dance floor. Mikel pulled her closer and laid her arms around his neck and his’ around her waist. Rose enjoyed of his touches. He looked good in his suit with a small tie and a Batman mask. He smiled and began to dance. She just followed his steps. She wished he liked her more than a friend.. She looked up in his face and saw his green eyes sparkling behind the mask. It made her smile. Her eyes wandered around the room behind him and looked at the costumes of other people. A man looked at her, his eyes were dark. She stared at him, her eyes widened with fear. The man grinned wickedly and waved. He slid his finger under his chin, like he tried to slash his own throat with it. She stopped dancing but kept looking at Logan. He began to walk towards her, but when the group of people walked past him, he was gone. As if he vanished into thin air. Mikel noticed something was wrong and tried to get her attention. Softly, though, demanding he turned her face to him and looked at her. Her face was pale, even with the lights flashing. He took her wrist, and guided her outside. A sob escaped her throat and killed the silence. Mikel pulled her close and hugged her, rocking her sideways in an attempt to calm her down. ‘Shh.. Everything is ok.. It’s alright Rose, everything’s alright.’ He caressed her hair and kept repeating it until she stopped crying. They sat down on the steps of the building Basty had rented. Her teeth were chattering. Mikel took his jacket off and laid it around her shoulders. ‘I s-saw him Mikel.. He-he was th-there.. I-i-ins-side..’ She tried to keep her mouth closed to stop the shivering, but it didn’t really help. Mikel frowned. ‘Saw who? Rose? Rosalyn, who did you see inside?’ Rosalyn shook her head. ‘It can’t be him.. How did he know I’d be at the party? How did he find me? Oh God.. Lilly.. And B-Basty.. No, he can’t hurt them. Oh no.. He saw us dancing. He’ll think you’re my boyfriend. Oh God.. Oh God, oh God, oh God.’ She was so confused. Mikel didn’t got anything of it. Rose buried her face in her hands and kept repeating the last sentence. ‘Rosalyn. Look at me. Look. At me. Who did you see?’ He tried to read her face, tried to look past the fear in her eyes. Gently he removed her mask. ‘Logan.. I saw.. him.. And he. He.. Oh God, why can’t he leave me alone..?’ Mikel caressed her cheek. ‘Rosie, Logan won’t hurt me. He won’t hurt me, or Lilly, or Basty. Ok? They are going to be just fine. There are lots of people inside and he won’t make a move with so many people. Tonight you’re going home with Lilly, and I’ll go home with Basty after we cleaned the mess here. We’re going to be just fine Rose, ok?’ She looked at him and nodded. ‘I’m sorry. You must think I’m paranoid now, don’t you?’ She asked worried. Mikel laughed. ‘Not at all silly girl. Come here, you need a hug.’ Rosalyn smiled and rested her head against his shoulder. He laid his arms around her and pulled her closer. Mikel fondled her hair. ‘Silly, silly girl.’ He said and couldn’t help but smile. Rosalyn swapped her arms around him and sighed. Mikel rested his head on top of her’s. ‘Silly Rosie..’ He murmured. Rose looked at him. Her eyes were red from crying and her mascara had left black stripes on her cheeks. He tried to wipe them away. They kept looking at each other, eyes locked. Mikel looked at her lips and back at her eyes. Their faces came closer and he closed his eyes. Inhaling her scent, feeling her breath on his skin, hearing her heart beat; Boom boom. Boom boom. A steady rhythm but it was going faster now. He felt her lips, tasted the wine on them. He inhaled deep and pulled her closer. Hands in his hair, the kiss deepened, hand in his neck pulling him close. Chest to chest. The music faded. All he heard was the sound of their hearts beating.

Part 12

During the night she’d been trying to come up with a way to say how she felt. She inhaled deep and rang the bell. It didn’t took long before the door opened. ‘Hey Rose. Come on in. Mikel’s still sleeping though I think. Coffee?’ Basty hid a yawn behind his hand. Rosalyn walked inside. ‘I’m sorry to bother you so early. I should have waited till the afternoon, but I couldn’t sleep and-..’ Basty pushed her on a chair and poured her a cup of coffee. He smiled and sat down as well. ‘It’s ok Rosa. I had to wake up anyway. Besides; I know why you’re here. Jesus Rose, it took you quite a while to figure it out, didn’t it? Even Charlotte noticed it!’ He shook his head and chuckled. Rosalyn blushed. ‘Haha! Well, I think two things: One; Mikel likes you too –he can’t shut up about you- and two; You’ll be very happy together.’ He smiled and took a sip from his coffee. ‘Thanks Basty. Lilly keeps teasing me with it..’ She rolled her eyes and sighed. Suddenly they heard someone walk into the kitchen. A woman held pace in the doorway, dressed in nothing more than the shirt Mikel wore last night. Soon Mikel’s sleepy face appeared next to her’s. The woman turned to him and with a smile, she shred Rosalyn’s heart with those five words; ‘Last night was amazing Mikel.’ Rose her eyes filled with tears and she dropped her mug. She got up while the coffee spread over the floor and saw how the woman kissed him full on the lips. Her world spun. She made her way to the door and left, tears rolling down her cheeks. Three pair of eyes followed her. ‘You stupid, stupid asshole,’ Basty hissed through clenched teeth, ‘are you blind?!’ Mikel looked confused at him. ‘Rosalyn loves you. You love Rosalyn. Jesus, Charlotte noticed Mikel. Charlotte. Any idea how obvious it is then?’ Mikel’s eyes widened. ‘How did you.. I mean..’ Basty just sighed and rolled his eyes. The woman took a cigarette from her handbag and lit it. ‘I should be giving you a good hard kick in your ass now. And this is my house woman. I hate the scent of ashtray. You either get rid of that cigarette or I’ll get rid of you.’ He looked at the woman and raised an eyebrow. The lady sighed annoyed but ditched the cigarette.

She kept running, tears rolling down her cheeks. She should have known better. Last night didn’t mean anything to him. After a while she stopped. A breeze caressed her skin. Rosalyn looked around. She was surrounded by silence. Slowly she walked further into onto the beach. Rosalyn found a place close to the ocean and sat down. She pulled her knees up and rocked herself back and forth. A sob ripped through the silence. ‘What was I thinking? Why would he love me?’ She whispered and cried. The wind picked up and chilled her to the bone. Rosalyn just didn’t care. Sand blew around her and covered her feet. Rosalyn let herself fall on her side and pulled her knees up. She never thought he’d hurt her like this.. She shivered and another wave of tears rushed through her.

Basty left the room and got dressed. Mikel was speechless. He groaned and rubbed his face. ‘I’m so stupid. I should have noticed it.. And last night.. She was upset.. I-I just comforted her.. And then..’ He touched his lips with the tip of his finger. Mikel looked at the woman. ‘Hailey, I want you to leave. Now!’ Hailey walked into his bedroom and changed her clothes. She left with a smirk. Basty came back as well. He grabbed the phone and dialled a number. ‘Hey Lil. Is Rose there? No? Ok. No, I’ll call back later. Thanks.’ He turned to Mikel. ‘I’m going to find Rose. You are going to stay here. Think about what you did.’ And he left. He jumped in his car and took off. ‘Ok.. If I were Rosalyn, where would I go to..?’ He said to himself and turned onto the road leading to the beach.
After ten minutes he arrived at the beach. He turned the engine off and jumped out of the car. Quickly Basty ran onto the beach. He looked around him. It was deserted. ‘Rosalyn!’ He yelled her name as he ran further. The waves rolled onto shore and he could hear the sound of the breakers. ‘Rosalyn!’ Despair filled his heart. Basty looked at the breakers. He squinted when he saw something laying there. He ran to it and fell on his knees. ‘Rose..’ He pulled her out of the water and pushed her against his chest. She was ice cold.. ‘I love him..’ she whispered and looked at him. She clutched his jacket and cried hysterical. Basty held her close. ‘I know Rosie, I know..’ He lifted her up and carried her to his car. Quickly he drove back home, and lifted her from the back seat. Fay looked surprised when she saw how he carried her into the elevator. Soon they arrived at Lilly’s apartment. It didn’t took long before the door opened. Basty walked inside and laid Rosalyn on the couch. ‘She needs a friend to listen to her, to talk with her. Take good care of her, ok? I won’t be counting on her tomorrow or the days following tomorrow. I think she might be able to move away from Cadiz now..’ Basty said and left. Lilly sat down on the couch and took Rosalyn’s head on her lap. Slowly the whole story came out, like water rolling onto the beach.

Part 13

‘Rosalyn, wait for me!’ She turned around and held the elevator. A man rushed inside. Rose smiled and pushed the button for their floor. The guy next to her rested his hands on his legs and tried to catch his breath. Rosalyn chuckled. ‘Maybe you should take the stair more often Nick.’ Nick threw a death glare at her. Rosalyn grinned and sipped from her coffee. It had been a little over a year now when she came here. Lilly had helped her finding a house and a job. She liked her new colleagues and job. ‘When you have my age, you’ll be panting like a dog as well..’ Nicolas said warning. ‘Oh come on Nick. You’re what, two years older than me? I think you should start to work on your conditions pal.’ she said jokingly. ‘But I have children..’ Nick muttered. He turned to look at her. ‘Speaking of which, could you watch Ana this afternoon? I need to go to the dentist with Jairo and well.. Susana is in France..’ He rubbed the back of his head. ‘Of course I can. I’ll take Anna to the park, ok?’ Nicolas nodded. ‘Sure. You know how fond she is of you.’ Rosalyn blushed which made Nick smile. The elevator stopped at their floor and they got out. ‘Ah, there you are! Staff meeting. Now. And yes there will be coffee and brownies Nick.’ Noa said while passing by with a bunch of files in her arms. Nicolas’ eyes lit up. Quickly they went to the conference room and sat down. Rosalyn leaned over to Nick. ‘Maybe –and this is just a humble piece of advice- you should stop with sweetening your coffee with five cubes of sugar and take one brownie instead of two.’ she whispered in his ear. Nick rolled his eyes. ‘Will you stop minding my eating habits? God, it’s time you get a boyfriend.’ Rosalyn smacked him against the back of his head. ‘Did anyone ever told you that you’re one heck of a pain in the ass?’ she threw back. Noa filled their mugs again. ‘Before you begin to strangle each other..’ she explained and sat down in her chair close to the one of their boss. Mr. Álvarez sat down and opened the meeting. Rosalyn knew him from some of the parties Lilly had dragged her to. It was a warm man with a good sense of justice. ‘Good. Rose, dear, you’re going to court this afternoon. Fillip’s case is on and I want you to calm him. His parents will both fight to get custody back from Foster Care. Mrs. Díaz will be there as well. Don’t worry, it’ll be over before Nicolas has to go to the dentist.’ Rosalyn nodded and wrote it down. Maybe she’d skip lunch to go home and get changed.. Her brows pulled together in a thoughtful frowns. ‘You don’t have to skip lunch dear. There’s an extra set of clothes in your office.’ Mr. Álvarez said with a smile. Rosalyn smiled back. The man simply thought of everything.

While chewing on a piece of cucumber, she read about the case. Fillip had been four when he got placed into a foster family. He was twelve now.. His dad was abusive and his mum a drug addict. Rose sighed and got up. This would be fun.. She glanced at her watch. She had about twenty minutes left. Quickly she took the charcoal grey dress and walked into the ladies room. Soon she was ready for court. She grabbed her shoulder bag and tugged a stray of hair behind her ear. ‘Let’s rock and roll...’ she muttered and made her way to the court room. Fillip and Mrs. Díaz were already waiting. ‘Hello Fillip, good to see you again. How are you Mrs. Díaz?’ Rosalyn said politely while sitting down next to them. Mrs. Díaz clutched her handbag while Fillip kept struggling with his tie. Mrs. Díaz turned to look at her, a nervous look in her eyes. ‘Do you think his parents make a chance to get him back?’ she asked Rosalyn. Rose laid her hand on the hands of Mrs. Díaz. ‘Don’t worry. The judge knows the situation and the history of his parents. We have a good case and Fillip’s lawyer is a really good one. It’ll be okay Esther.’ Esther showed a little smile and looked at Fillip. Rosalyn turned to him as well. ‘Shall I help you with your tie?’ He nodded. ‘It’s almost killing me..’ Rosalyn chuckled and helped him to put it right. Soon the guard came and escorted them into the court room. Victor Álvarez walked to them. ‘Heya Fillip. Are you ready for this?’ Fillip nodded and followed him to the chairs they had to sit.

The case took over an hour, thanks to Fillip’s dad who lost his temper. Rosalyn went with her hand through her hair and glanced at her watch. Nicolas had to be at the dentist at four. It was 15:30 now. The judge looked at her. ‘Miss Hernandez, I would like you to make a statement.’ She nodded and walked to the witness-stand. After she swore an oath, she could sit down. The judge turned to her. ‘Do you think that Fillip’s parents are capable to take back the custody of their son?’ Rosalyn looked at Mrs. Muñoz. The woman was desperate and had regret, but Rosalyn wasn’t sure she’d leave the drugs forever. She turned to look at mister Muñoz. The man was angry and had trouble controlling his rage.. A shiver ran down her spine. She’d never forgive herself if Fillip would get beaten by him. ‘No, I do not think they are capable to take care of their son. Mr. Muñoz has a history of violence and I do not want Fillip to be a victim of his rage.’ The judge nodded. ‘Thank you miss Hernandez.’ Rosalyn got up and walked back to her seat next to Esther. The woman took Rosalyn’s hand. ‘Thank you.’ She muted. Rose smiled politely.

Soon she was on her way out of court. Victor ran to her. ‘Rose!’ She turned around. ‘My brother called. He wants to know if he can come to the park as well. With you and Ana.’ He was holding his phone against his chest. ‘Off the record? I think this is his way to tell me to hurry up and get him a niece or nephew to play with..’ he whispered. Rosalyn chuckled. ‘Tell him he can come. I’m sure Ana will love him. I’ll pick her up now and be there in ten to fifteen minutes.’ Victor nodded and answered his brother. Rosalyn continued walking out of the door and rushed off to her car. Soon she parked it in front of Nicolas’ home. Rosalyn got out and walked to the door. It flung open and she got simply said pulled inside. ‘Jairo! Let Aunty Rose go and get your jacket!’ Nick yelled from the kitchen. The boy let go of her hand and ran back into the hallway to get his jacket. Rosalyn walked further inside with a grin. ‘Rosie!’ a little girl said, reaching out with her arms. ‘Ana-banana!’ Rosalyn said and lifted the girl up. Ana laughed when she heard her nickname. Nicolas turned around and looked at them. He pointed at the bag on the kitchen table. ‘Everything you might need is in there. Jairo and I will be back before 5 ‘o clock, I hope. When Ana gets tired, you can either go to your place or bring her here.’ Rosalyn looked back at the girl. ‘If I bring her here, will you make your fantastic Pasta di Pina?’ She looked back at Nick. He laughed. ‘Sure, sure. But that does mean I need some extra time to do groceries.’ Rosalyn nodded. She’d give him all the time in the world if he’d make that dish. Quickly she helped Ana in her jacket and grabbed the bag. ‘Bye-bye papa!’ the little girl said and waved.

Victor’s brother was already waiting for them. 'Hey Rose. Good to see you again. And this must be Ana. Nice to meet you Ana, I’m Javi. I’m a friend of Rose.’ Ana looked at the black haired-green eyed man in front of her. ‘Are you Rosie’s papa?’ she asked and titled her head. Rosalyn’s cheek turned red. ‘No, Javi is not my husband. We are friends.’ Ana nodded as if she understood everything. They sat down: Ana and Javi on the grass, Rosalyn on a bench. She looked at the two playing. Javi was wonderful with children.. She smiled and closed her eyes for a second, enjoying of the sun warming her face. The sounds of laughter reached her ears and made her smile widen. Suddenly a familiar voice brought her back to Earth and some memories came along the ride. ‘Rosalyn? Is that you?’ She turned her face and looked up in the face of Mikel, his expression surprised and going from her to Javi and the little girl on the grass.

Part 14

He looked at the man on the grass and the little girl across him. ‘Javi?’ Mikel asked. Fear filled his heart. It had been a year ago since he last saw her, of course she’d moved on and had a husband and a daughter now. How could he think she hadn’t, that she was waiting for him? ‘Hey Mikel.’ Javi said and smiled. Rosalyn looked puzzled at him. ‘You two know each other?’ Javi nodded. ‘We met some time ago but the contact kinda faded. When he phoned me to tell he’d move to Madrid, we agreed that it was time to meet again, so we went out for a beer to celebrate his new house.’ Rosalyn looked at Javi. The little girl rolled a ball to him and laughed. ‘I.. I have to go. Ana needs to go home. Dinner will be ready soon and she still needs a bath and clean clothes and I have work to do for tomorrow and-..’ she stopped in the middle of her sentence and picked the little girl up. ‘Come on Ana, daddy will be home soon and he won’t like the grass stains on your trousers.’ Rosalyn grabbed the bag and left in a hurry. Mikel sat down on the bench and let the air escape over his lips. He looked at Javi. ‘So.. You’re not her husband?’ Javi stared at him and began to laugh. He fell on his back and couldn’t stop laughing. Slowly, Javi calmed down and looked at Mikel. ‘You kidding me? She works for my old man. We’re friends. Married with Rosalyn..’ He shook his head and wiped a tear away. ‘Jesus, I feel stupid now..’ Mikel said and covered his eyes with his left hand. Javi came sitting next to him. ‘You and Rose.. You two share a history together, don’t you? And I guess it didn’t had a happy end like in the movies.’ Javi said. ‘I screwed up.. We met about three years ago in Cadiz. I just left Leila, she just broke up with her boyfriend, we became friends.. two years after that we kissed at a Halloween party Basty threw, and the next day she came over. When I woke up she was sitting in Basty’s kitchen drinking coffee and making small talk. I’d met a girl at the party and she came home and we were drunk and.. Like I said, I screwed up. Rosalyn came over to tell me how she felt, that she loved me and that woman shredded her heart by telling how amazing I was last night. I hurt her so bad Javi, she simply ran out of the apartment. Basty was angry as hell and said he should actually kick me hard. He went after her and I kicked the woman out.. We kissed and she loved me and.. Man, it’s a mess in my head. I haven’t seen her for over a year and every day I missed her more and every day I loved her more.. But I’m not sure if she wants to see me again..’ Javi shook his head. ‘No wonder she took off like that..’ Mikel nodded. ‘Is she married anyway? I mean.. the toddler, daddy..’ Javi laughed again. ‘The little girl is Ana. She’s the daughter of Nicolas who is a colleague of Rose. Nick had to take his son to the dentist and asked Rosalyn to baby-sit on her because his wife’s in.. I thought she was in France. So, to answer your question, Rosalyn is not married nor engaged nor seeing any man. Or woman. Just saying pal, you never know these days.’ Mikel rolled his eyes. ‘But what are you doing here then?’ Javi smirked. ‘Now, that’s a funny story. You see, I’ve got a brother who’s got a wife and going to the park to play with Ana was a silent way to tell him to get our old man some grandchildren. And me a niece or nephew of course.’ Mikel nodded. It was quiet for a while. Javi was enjoying the sun while Mikel kept thinking about Rosalyn. He sighed and rubbed his face. ‘Christ, I have been so stupid.. Do you think she’d talk with me?’ Mikel said and looked at Javi. ‘I don’t know man. You could always try. Look, Victor –my brother- is turning 32 next week. Rosalyn knows him so she’ll come. I know you so you’ll come too. It’s the perfect way to talk with her. What do you say?’ he answered, his eyes were twinkling. ‘Sure, why not? When and where?’ Javi ripped a page out of his agenda and scribbled something on it. ‘It’s a casual party, so don’t come in a suit.’ Mikel nodded and folded the paper in half. At least he could try to make it up to her... Not much later Javi left as well. ‘I’ll see you around pal. Bye!’ Mikel waved as an answer and watched how Javi walked away. He rested his hands behind his head and while enjoying the sun, he let the past months pass his memory. He thought about the days after Rosalyn had left, how empty he’d felt. And Basty wasn’t feeling sorry for him. Not at all.

The house had been quiet when Basty came back. His jacket was full of wet sand. Mikel looked up. ‘Did you find her?’ Basty nodded. ‘Yes, she was at the beach. I brought her home. Don’t get your hopes up Hennet. I don’t think you’ll see her anytime soon.’ He pointed with his finger at Mikel. Mikel sighed and rubbed his face. How could he have missed all the signs? Basty shrugged out of his jacket and sat down next to him. ‘I keep making mistake on mistake..’ Mikel said. Basty laid his hand on Mikel’s arm. ‘Look, I know you feel awful, but Rose will move on and so do you. Don’t expect me to make it easy for you coz right now I’m pretty much pissed off at you, but I won’t make it like hell either. You are the one who can decide if you make your life like hell or not. I hope you’ll learn from this.’ Mikel nodded. ‘I surely as hell did.’

The next day he had to work, but it wasn’t quite the same. He was quiet, the whole store was quiet, like nature is before a storm. And it was the same the next day and the next week, and the next months. Basty contacted real-estate managers to look for a place in Madrid and Mikel read paper after paper to find a job there. He wanted to get away from Cadiz. It didn’t took long before he found a job as a dance teacher at the School of Arts in Madrid. Now he had a good and well paid job and a lovely house, just outside Madrid. It wasn’t big, but he loved it and it had a wonderful garden filled with flowers and an old cherry tree. The sun was settling for sunset and the temperature was dropping. Mikel zipped his jacket up and put his hands in his pockets. Slowly he got up and walked back to his car. The stores were closed by now. He sighed. ‘I’ll order Thai then..’ and got into his car. Soon he was home and dialled the number of a Thai restaurant. 15 minutes later his dinner arrived. Mikel turned the TV on and began to eat while following the news with a half ear and preparing his classes for the next day. ‘Just a week,’ he said to himself, ‘and you’ll see her again..’ A smile appeared while thinking about that.

Part 15

A week he’d been living on automatic pilot, but finally the day of the party had arrived. Mikel smiled when he unlocked the door. He ran upstairs, into his bed/bathroom, and began to take his clothes off. He popped a CD from Kyteman in his CD player and turned the shower on. Within seconds the whole room was filled with the sound of a trumpet and falling water. While washing his hair, he let all his clothes wander through his mind. Soon he turned the shower off and grabbed a towel. Mikel walked to his closet and opened the doors. ‘Javi said it was casual.. Hmm.. Jeans and a white shirt.. Perfect..’ he said to no one in particular. His cat looked up from its place on his bed and purred quietly. Quickly he grabbed some clean underwear and socks, and got dressed. The party would start at nine. Mikel had been able to stretch his day till half past eight. He turned to his cat. ‘What do you think pal?’ The cat titled its head and made a sound which Mikel took as an approval. ‘Thanks. Wish me luck!’ He ran out the door and drove to the place of the party, and thank God he’d left early because the traffic was a nightmare.

Javi was waiting outside for him. Mikel ran up the stairs. ‘Rosalyn’s already inside. She’s talking with my father and some people from the firm. Try to be patient, and wait for her to be alone.’ Mikel nodded and rested his hand on Javi’s shoulder. ‘Thanks Javi. I owe you big time.’ Javi smiled. ‘Just get me a date with the gorgeous art teacher you told about during lunch last week, and we’re even.’ Mikel laughed and joined the guests. He saw Rosalyn talking with a couple of men. She wore a white dress and had her hair up. He smiled and took his place next to the table with all the drinks.

His patience got rewarded. It didn’t took long before Rosalyn walked to him. She grabbed an apple martini. ‘Hello Rosie.’ Rosalyn turned around and looked at him. She gasped. ‘Mikel!’ He nodded. ‘Please Rose, don’t go. Can we talk?’ Rosalyn nodded. ‘I know I hurt you a lot, and I think you probably would like that I’d leave you alone, but I can’t. I missed you, and when you were gone I began to realize that I..’ he sighed and rubbed the nape of his neck, ‘that I loved you..’ he said and looked at her. Rosalyn stared at him. ‘I don’t expect you to answer that feeling Rose. Let’s dance. Just one dance.. I hope you’re able to forgive me and let me be your friend again.’ Mikel said. He guided her to the dance floor and lost himself in her eyes and the music.

Part 16

They kept dancing. No talking, just looking at each other and dance. Every now and then they’d stop and get something to drink. Hours past and alcohol was served eagerly. Rosalyn looked in Mikel’s eyes. They twinkled happily, like a dog would wag its tail when its owner is back from a vacation. She couldn’t help but smile. Their bodies were chest to chest and Rosalyn inhaled the scent of his cologne. A tension was building between them –maybe it was the ridiculous amount of alcohol in their blood- and their dancing became more sensual. She’d missed him and of course, she was surprised when she saw him in the park. Like a punch in the face, memories came back, but he regretted what he did.. Maybe she could make new memories, with him as a good friend.

Both were getting drunk. Rosalyn took him to a corner and pulled him closer, feeling his heartbeat under his shirt. Their lips met briefly but Mikel smiled and kissed her again. His tongue brushed against her lips, seeking for an entrance. Rosalyn let him, and enjoyed of this faint moment of passion. She had no worries, no fears, just desire. Mikel broke contact of their lips and moved to her ear. ‘Let’s get the hell outta here..’ His breath caressed her skin and his words were loaded with sexual tension. It sent a shiver down her spine and she nodded. Mikel took her hand and guided her to his car. Not much later they arrived home and she followed him inside. As soon as she closed the door, Mikel pressed her against it and captured her lips in another soaring kiss. He lifted her up and carried her into his bedroom. Clothes –most of them ripped pieces of fabric- flew around. They went to the bed and fell down, causing his cat to meow angry, jump of it and walk away. Their bodies collided in an act of passion, and he made her forget where they were.


~*~*~*~*~

The sun shone into the bedroom. Rosalyn moaned in agony and turned away from the killer-sun. One eye was opened and quickly joined by the other one when she noticed the bed wasn’t empty. In fact; this wasn’t her bed at all. Rosalyn jumped out of bed and noticed the lack of underwear. Mikel was still sleeping. Rose groaned and began to pick up her clothes. Most of them were still whole –except her bra and pantyhose. With her shoes in her hand, she walked down, regret replacing the alcohol and giving her one hell of a headache. ‘No, that ain’t regret. That is alcohol..’ she said to herself and took a sheet from the notepad on the draining board. ‘Dear Mikel,’ her pen froze above the paper and she closed her eyes for a while. ‘I’m sorry. Rosalyn.’ She laid it on the kitchen table and walked out of the door. Rosalyn began to walk to a bus stop and took one back to Madrid. Soon after she’d found her car, she was sitting on the couch in her own house. Rosalyn had no idea how she’d gotten there, but was glad she did. She had the phone pressed against her ear. ‘Lilly? C-could I use your summer cottage for a while? I.. I need a break..’ Tears rolled down her face while listening to the calming voice of her friend. ‘No, you don’t have to. I want to think and I can do that the best on my own. Thank you Lilly. Love you too..’ and she hung up. Quickly she ran upstairs to pack like a tornado while the phone was yet again stuck to her ear, This trip was a welcome and very needed one..
