Emily.....

Winter was in season in this busy city. I sat near the window watching the first snow of many days to come fickle down slowly. I felt as if it wanted to come down but scared of people complaints. But I wasn't one of those people, winter was my favorite season.

It's been two week's since I've last seen Santos. He asked for me to think it through before giving him an answer. I was delaying my answer not because I didn't know but because I wanted to make sure of feelings. We both were the opposite, I'm calm while he's wild.

Stephenie didn't like how I've changed, she says I'm not the same person I was when she met me. I still was, but I kept more things to myself. Maybe the old me would talk nonstop about anything and everything while now I just give a simple answer. She's been trying to get me on a date her boyfriends best friend but I wasn't sure if it was a good idea. After countless attempts, I said yes.

I wanted to see if what I felt for Santos was real or just a mere crush. I like him a lot, more than a lot actually but I would always try to find something bad about him.

If only he would call or text me but he never did.

I was in deep thought when Vinny sat in front of me. "Hey doll face, what's new." He asked.

My hands were placed around the coffee mug. I just wanted to be alone but I would never say anything. "Nothing I guess, how's Santos." I questioned him, taking a sip of my coffee.

"He's good, in Miami visiting family. He should be here by tomorrow. I heard you have a date tonight, who's the lucky guy."

Rasing my shoulder, "I don't know."

I didn't want Santos to know about this date but apart of me also wanted him to know. I wanted to see what his reaction would be like, would he be mad or would he not care at all.

"Ok, I'll let you be, it seems you don't want to talk." He said as his phone rung. I stared at him as he left, waving at me as he exited the shop.

Stephenie walked by, she was wrapping her coat around her body and placing a hat on her head. "Come on beautiful, we got to get you ready for your date. He's really sweet and nice Emily, you'll really like him."

I got up and followed her out the shop and into her car.

I wonder if he thought about me as much as I did about him?

********

Santos.....

"Yea boss." Vinny answered.

"What's new, how's doll face? Did you see her today?" I asked. I was at the Salvador place, waiting to meet my long-lost cousin for the first time.

"She's good I think, she has a date tonight with someone." He muttered lowly.

"Oh", was all I could say. Guess I have my answer then. "Ok, keep an eye on her and make sure she's safe. I'll called you later."

I masked my face, even though my heart was aching like crazy. You can't have everything you want Santos, so let it go. She's better off without you.

I took out a cigarette, lighting it up. "Santos my boy, how's work going." Eros asked. To be honest, I didn't like the man, there was something about him that made me want to grab a gun and shoot him. The bastered put my friend through hell, he wasn't a father but a monster. Not saying I was better but he was a man with no heart. At least I had one, I think?

"Better then you can possibly think." I said. His fake smile was plastered on his face and I wanted to rip it apart.

"I can smile like that to, see." I mimicked his action. Uncle Pablo sent me a warning look and just for him, I got up and left. The place was just as it was the last time I've seen it. I walked up the stairway and the next thing you know, I'm at Salvadors bedroom door.

"Jesus, I said leave. We'll be there soon." He yelled. I chuckled a bit as I leaned over the door rail. A beautiful girl opened the door widely with a smile on her face. I stared at her, taking in her beauty, she looked like her mother. Doll face came to me mind and ache stabbed where I've been stabbed before.

"I'm Santos La'stat, good to have you back cuz." I smirked as I took in my appearance. "Hurt her Salvador and I will skin you alive." My voice echoed through the room. Placing my eyes back on her. "Come on cuz, the family wants to see their missing princess." I held out his hand as she placed hers in mines and smiled. I brought it up to my lips and kissed gently. "If he ever hurts you, you come to me. I'll beat him up for you." She giggled while shaking my head.

We we're walking side by side until we reached the top of the stairway, I heard him run out the room. Next thing you know he's pulling me then tackles me down. Its been four years since I've seen him face to face, it's usually Face time but this was better. Kinda miss the bastered. We both unexpectedly burst out laughing.

"Um, am I missing something here." Alicia said looking at us weirdly.

"Nah, we just haven't seen each other for a while. The last time I seen Salvador was at Federic wedding." I said, helping Salvador up.

Salvador placed a hand on my shoulder as if he couldn't believe I was here. "Long time no see a**hole, did you bring the girl with you? Marco told me about her." He said with a smirk.

. "Once again, I'm sorry. My ride is here, bye!"

I went out and crossed the road until reaching the car, he leaned forward to open and I entered it quickly. "Take me to Santos apartment. I want to see him." I said all in the rush.

"Santos is in still in Miami, he'll come around one in the morning. How did you know about his apartment?" He questioned.

"Do you know the keypad number for the lock?" I asked, ignoring his question. He nods his head, "I've only been there once, I don't know if the pin is still the same."

"Just take us, we can try. And don't tell him that I'm there, ok?" I said.

He was thinking really hard. "When boss kills me, make sure to come visit my grave, ok?"

I laughed loudly, "He won't hurt you, I promise."

****************

Santos....

"Where are you?" I shouted at Vinny through the phone.

"I'm pulling up boss." The car stop in front of me, I opened the door and threw my bag in the back. "Where the f*ck were you? I've been waiting for ten minutes." I said, slamming the car door shut.

"Sorry boss, how was the family meeting?" He asked. I didn't want to talk about anything, I just wanted to go to my apartment and drink the night away.

"Did doll face enjoy her date?" I asked bitterly.

"Um, I don't know." He said. Something was off with him but I decided to ignore it. "Take me to my apartment." I said, laying my head back.

I closed my eye's and dozed off. "Boss, boss, we're here." Vinny said while shaking my shoulder. I sighed loudly and rubbed my tired eyes, "Since I'll be drinking all night, don't bother me tomorrow. Deal with whatever that needs to be dealt with, get the plane ready for Sunday. You and Johnny are coming with me to Moscow." I said, while opening the car door.

"Night boss and go easy on the alcohol." He said while laughing. Didn't know how I reached the apartment this quickly but I was happy I did. Unlocking the door, I entered, dropping my bag on the floor.

My heart stopped completely as I watched doll face staring out the window. She turned her head slowly to face me, "Just because I went out with someone doesn't mean I gave you my answer." She stated.

I was huffing with anger, "Then what the f*ck does it mean, huh? Why the hell are you here, how did you enter?" I paced back and forth. "You have any idea how it hurts? No, you don't. But it's not your fault, It's mines for actually over thinking."

I didn't realize she was standing in front of me until I felt her hand on my chest. "I'm sorry meanie, I didn't mean to hurt you. If it makes you feel any better, I left him during dinner time. Kinda felt bad for the guy, instead of enjoying my time with him. I was thinking of you, I just wanted to see if what I felt for you was real. Now that you know how I feel, I want to know how you feel about me. I don't want to play around, that's not me. So it's either serious or we both go our separate ways for good."

I lifted her up and placed her on the bar counter. "So if I ask you to marry me you will?" I said, standing in between her legs. She laughed loudly, "Silly, let's get to know each other more before that happens. I just want to feel how I feel, and if you do, then I know this can work." She said. Placing her hand on my face, her thumb gently caressed my lips.

?"You're so beautiful doll face."I said.

She smiled shyly, and that's where I knew I was falling for her.
