The flames of the bonfire was right before me, as I rubbed my hands together and embraced the warmth wholeheartedly. The temperature was incredibly low compared to the other days and I remained glancing towards Chelsea, who remained quiet and gazed at the bonfire, totally zoned out.

I wondered what was wrong with her. She seemed incredibly quiet from the evening and she seemed to have lost her appetite, as I saw her only playing with her food and avoiding eye contacts with just everyone.

Veronica went away with Simon and I could see them talking in the balcony of the room.

"Are you feeling cold?" I heard Chelsea's timid voice and that made me look back at her.

"No!" I responded. She smiled a little as she reached out to her left and threw a blanket on me.

"Your legs are shaking, " she said and I looked back at my legs to find them shaking. It was something that happened to me only when I was in tension or nervous. I was definitely, not feeling cold.

Perhaps, I felt agitated and nervous seeing Veronica and Simon all alone and agitated because of jealousy.

Nevertheless, I took the blanket and placed it over my legs hiding it from Chelsea's view. Her eyes remained fixated to the flames, and I was just about to ask her what's with her, Veronica walked to us.

"How is it going?" she asked as she took a seat next to Chelsea and Chelsea scooted a little to give her some space. They exchanged a glance and looked my way.

"Well, its cold, " I told them and looked back towards the way where a few minutes ago I saw Simon only to find him absent. Where is he?

"Then we should head back to our room? Don't want us catching cold now do we?" Veronica chuckled and Chelsea was first to nod as she got up from her place and looked back at me.

"Alright, " I said as I kept the blanket on the bench for the resort staff, to take it back as I stretched my arms into the air and then we three headed back into the resort, when all of a sudden Veronica held my hand and I looked back at her.

"Stay for a minute, " she said and I looked back at Chelsea to find her waling straight back without even glancing back.

"What's up?" I asked as I withdraw my hands from her and she looked up at me. We were in the lobby, and since it was already late, the lights were dimmed and only a receptionist sat on the seat talking in his phone, totally clueless to our presence. Veronica saw him and again got hold of my hand as she pulled me to the entrance and near the glass door where no one was around.

"I have got something to tell you about Simon, " she begun when it stroke me.

"Do you know he has a daughter and she is as grown up as we are? Probably older than us?" I said recalling the time of the day when I got to know that he has a daughter.

"Yes, I do, " Veronica spoke and immediately I yanked her hand off me.

t she mumbled as she walked past me and I stood their thinking what she meant and regretting my actions. As I took in deep breaths and saw her walking back towards the room, I made it my chance to wait until she goes away so that I could walk back to mine without facing any awkwardness.

"God Ace! You are just so dumb!" I cursed as I could still my heart stupidly beating fast and patting over my chest, I made my way towards my room and thankfully, she was nowhere in sight.

"Great! You made things totally uncomfortable and awkward for her, " I pulled my hair as soon as I closed the door and slid to the floor, cursing my luck and involuntary actions.

That's right I had no consciousness.

Just tell her that you drunk too much and you were not in your right state of mind.

The stupid idea popped into my head, and I walked back to the bed, plopping down on it, staring at the ceiling. Hours passed by but I was still cursing and blaming myself for not having control over my actions. I was hardly able to sleep and the whole night, I turned left and right thinking of the ways to face Veronica when I gave up and pulled my hair tightly but stopped when I heard a knock on my door.

It was a single knock but had it not been me, not sleeping at the hour, I would have never heard it. Quickly, I stood back on my foot and checked the time to find it three in the morning.

As I walked to the door thinking, who it might be so early in the morning, always expect the unexpected.

Veronica.

She stood right before my door and looked up at me as I opened the door and there was a smile playing on her face.

"I was not able to sleep. I just wanted to do a test, " she said and as my eyebrows furrowed in confusion thinking what test she was talking about, all of a sudden, she flung her arms over my shoulder and stood on her tip toe and before I knew it, her lips were on mine.
