When things are not in your side, nothing can help it. It was how I ended up drenched up, because the damn faucet broke open when I turned it on. The water, was in pressure as it hit my face and drenched my shirt while, I tried to get a hold of the faucet and fix it back on the sink, but by the time I was able to fix it, it was too late and my shirt was totally drenched.

"Ace?" I heard Veronica's voice.

She probably heard the breaking of the faucet. It was freezing and I got rid of my shirt as I heard her knocking at the door. Cursing under my breath, I opened the door and flipped the shirt in the air, annoyed.

"That stupid faucet of the sink, broke open when I turned it on, shit!" I told her and inspected the shirt. But it was of no use. It was soaked and I sighed as I walked to the chair where I had thrown my jacket previously, and removed it and used the chair to dry the shirt.

"Are you alright?" I heard her and looked back at her to find her already staring at me. I nodded putting my hand on my waist as I looked for a towel when all of a sudden something was flung my way and I caught it in no time only to find it a towel.

"Use it to dry yourself, " she said as she made her way to the bed and side and sat on the edge looking towards the bathroom door.

"It seems you work out a lot, " I heard her and I looked her way all the while drying my hair as I hummed in response.

"You can say, I used to. Now, I don't even get time to breathe, " I said as I sat on the other side of the bed and looked at the lamp.

"Why?" she asked and that made me wonder something.

There are things that I kept hidden from her as well. But things like that can't be shared and I was little worried if people around me will really understand the problem. Still, I don't know why I wanted to put it before her and thought about it again before coming to the decision.

"I am a scientist, " I started and she looked back with a raised eyebrow.

"Really? I didn't know, " came her sarcastic reply followed by an eye roll which made me smile sideways at her.

"But I can't be a scientist!" I finally said it which made her give me a confused look as she turned to face me in the bed as I looked her way.

"What in the world does that mean?" she asked seeming curious and I threw the towel on the end of the bed, sitting comfortably. Thankfully the heater was on, which allowed me to sit

the day knowing each other and perhaps the thoughts you have for him change after this?" she asked and I looked her way.

"Ridiculous idea. You two will hang out while I be a loner and be awkward. Is that what you want?" I asked and she grinned.

"Of course not. If you want you can bring your sister. I heard she is coming back this week right? My date is on Saturday. Today is Monday, we can do this in Wednesday right?" she asked and I looked the other way frowning.

"Alright!" I said as I closed my eyes.

"Perfect!" I heard her squeal.

I can't believe I said yes to her ridiculous idea. But that's not a bad idea either. I can really get to know Simon and will have an idea what type of guy he is. But deep down, I was burning with jealousy and I was hurt. The woman I loved, was slipping out of my hands right before my eyes and I couldn't do anything.

But it was all my fault. Had I told her about my feelings in right place and right time then perhaps she would have been with me. Every time, I tried to tell her, something happened and she always got away. Perhaps it was also the signal from the above indicating that we were not really meant for each other.

I failed to love her and failed to make her see, how much I loved her.

"Are you asleep already?" I heard her but chose to keep quiet because I was already feeling tired and sleepy.

But as I losing my consciousness, I could feel the bed raise up from beside me and then something trailing over my face, but I was too tired to even open my eyes and that made me fall asleep with the soft sensation still on my face.
