"You've been really quiet, sweetheart, is everything okay?" Theodore asked with concern.

I sighed audibly. "I'm just sad we're leaving Bali." I answered truthfully.

"Oh, don't worry, we can come back here after some time." Theodore tried to make me feel better.

I smiled softly and closed my eyes. Right now we were sitting in an airplane that was taking us back to New York. It was difficult to leave Bali, as I had grown attached to that place in a short amount of time. The month had flown away and I didn't even realize it. But still, I was glad that Theodore and I got to spend some time together. This last month had brought us closer together—at least I believed it did. I was beginning to get to know Theodore on a deeper level, and that was all I wanted.

The sky outside was a soft blue with numerous fluffy clouds floating away. The sun was warm and bright, making me smile. I turned my eyes to gaze at my husband who was busy running his eyes over some magazine, and wondered how my feelings had taken a 180 degree turn. How I was afraid of this man whose name was now joined with mine. I never expected that my life would take such a drastic turn. Whenever I looked in the future I never had marriage in my views. Maybe because my parents were no longer with me and I did not want to take such a big step without them. But life went on and sooner or later I would've gotten married. However, marriage wasn't something I dwelled on too much.

"Penny for your thoughts." Theodore muttered, my eyes snapping to his gray ones.

"Uh, nothing just reflecting back on the past month." I answered.

"Yeah, it had been pretty unusual." Theodore said.

"Yeah, it has been." I agreed.


Landing back on American soil was bittersweet. Even though I was ecstatic to be back, I was already missing Bali; not to mention that I was actually dreading confronting Amanda. I was pretty sure that she would yell her heart out at me, and I would feel terrible for everything that had happened. However, I was eighty percent sure that once I told her exactly how I got married she would forgive me.

There was Dan, Theodore's driver, waiting for us outside the airport. Theodore ushered me inside the black Range Rover, while Dan wasted no time in climbing in the driver's seat and speeding out of the tarmac.

The weather in New York was pleasent. It wasn't too hot, just perfect. The traffic on the other hand was awful. It was almost a half hour drive to my apartment, but with traffic moving at a snail's pace I was sure we wouldn't reach even after five hours.

After one millenia later, we escaped the extreme traffic. I was glad to know that soon we'll reach my apartment, but Dan took a sudden left turn, making me frown in confusion.

"Why did he turn left? My apartment is in the other direction." I asked Theodore.

"We're going to go somewhere else first." Theodore informed me.

"Where?" I inquired curiously.

Theodore gave me a small smile. "It's a surprise." Now I couldn't even ask him anything else. Although, his reply did nothing but take my curiosity to new heights. I turned my head to look out the window, and realized that we were heading out of New York city. Where in the world was he taking me? I had the sudden thought of Theodore kidnapping me, but my sanity soon slapped me with a retort, telling me that my husband wouldn't just kidnap me.

After sometime of me gazing out the window eager to see our destination, Theodore called me out. I turned to see him looking me nervously.

"What is it?" I queried.

"There is something I want to do, but I need you to trust me." Theodore responded softly, his gaze not leaving mine.

"Uh, okay." I said with furrowed eyebrows. What was he planning?

"Do you trust me?" Theodore asked.

"I'm getting there." I replied honestly. I was not going to lie and tell him I trusted him when I actually didn't.

"Good, that's really good, I'm happy to hear that, sweetheart, " he came closer to me, "now close your eyes." He ordered softly.

"Why?" I demanded. My heart rate rising up a notch.

"I thought you trusted me." Theodore said with a hint of annoyance in his tone.

My heart was now pounding. I looked at the man sitting in front of, begging me to give him my trust. The man who did nothing but reassure me that I could put my trust in him. However, I wanted to know why he wanted me to close my eyes. But seeing as I wouldn't get my answer until I did as he asked, I decided to let my heart make the decision.

"Okay, okay." I closed my eyes with trepidation

"Good girl." Theodore kissed the corner of my lips softly. After a few seconds I felt something smooth covering my already closed eyes. It felt like silk, warm and utterly soft. The cloth was knotted behind my head, making my stomach twist.

"Why did you blindfold me?" I questioned, afraid to know the answer.

"Ssh, just trust me, darling." Theodored k

idn't have to wake him up. I had a feeling that it would be very difficult to wake Theodore, if I was given the task of doing it.

We each had a big bowl of cereal, because it was the only thing available in the kitchen, due to there being no one to stock the pantry in our absence. Theodore informed that the staff would arrive tomorrow and the kitchen pantry would be stocked.

As soon as Theodore locked the front door I dashed to the waiting car and hopped in the back, waiting for Theodore to come so we could leave. My heart was pounding in anticipation of seeing my best friend while my stomach was playing an expert game of twister, making me feel as if it would expel my cereal.

After taking his sweet time and me wishing that he was Flash, Theodore slid inside earning a glare from me. The driver quickly pulled out of our driveway amd I prayed to the higher power to not let there be any traffic.

"Did you inform Amanda that we were coming?" Theodore asked me after a few moments of silence.

I shook my head in negative. "No, I want it to be a surprise." I told him but there was also another reason why I didn't inform Amanda about our arrival. I was afraid she would not want to see me. So I chose not to let her know. That way she wouldn't be able to avoid me and would have to talk to me no matter what.

It was as if I did something bad in my previous life and Karma was biting my a$$, because there was a lot of traffic on the way, which was doing nothing for my mood. The quickly I wanted to reach my apartment the slowly the cars were moving, making me wish I was Hulk so I could rip all those cars out of my way.

"Would you calm down, we'll get there." Theodore said.

"I am calm." I lied making him raise his eyebrow.

"Yeah, I can tell from the constant bouncing of your knee." Theodore replied sarcastically. I ignored him and went back to staring out the window, silently willing the cars to have mercy on me and move out of the way.

Finally, after 2546 years we finally reached my apartment. I wasted no time in getting out the car and rushing to the elevator. I pressed the button to call the elevator repeatedly, until I was sure that the elevator was coming down. Theodore followed behind me at an agonizingly slow pace.

Just as the elevator doors opened I grabbed Theodore's arms and pulled him inside the elevator with me. He just shook his head in response but thankfully didn't say anything. I was afraid that if Theodore had said something we would have ended up fighting.

The elevator doors slid open and I all but ran to my apartment. Theodore on the other hand walked calmly and casually as if he had all the time in the world. My heart was pounding, my stomach felt twisted in an unrecognizable shape. Taking a deep breath, I raised my hand and pressed the door bell.
