Madi's POV:

I am currently in the kicthen of the restaurant, when my phone vibrates inside my pants pocket. It's Martin. My eyebrow was raised at the sight of his name, because it's been four days and I still haven't received any calls or message from this man.

I answered his call without even removing my apron.

"Madi babe!" he was the one who speak first.

"And hello to you too, Martin babe." I greet him back smiling but my voice has a little bit of sarcasm.

"How are you, babe?" he's chuckling on the other line.

"Well, I'm here.. still breathing. How about you and where are you by the way? I thought you already left me and you go back to Colorado."

"Of course not! I won't do that to you. I am your boy-friend, right?" he chuckled and I rolled my eyes.

"So, where have you been this past four days?" I am now walking back inside the office.

"I'm just wondering around the City. And guess what!"


"I met someone, Madi!" I can imagine his grin.

"Someone... a man or a woman?"

"Of course a woman, silly!"

"Why... you didn't tell me at first, hello! So, tell me about this someone and don't miss any bit of information about her!"

"Well, her name is Nancy and she's like an angel Madi. I swear, I felt like I was walking on cloud nine by that time, especially when she smiled at me."

When I heard the name Nancy, my eyebrows knitted but I ignored it. Could it be possible that the Nancy he'd met and the Nancy I knew were just the same? Well, we are in Chigaco, the most crowded city in the state of Illinois which population is more than 2.7 million.. so maybe it's not.

I continued to listen on him and how he excitedly shared his experience with his Nancy girl. I suddenly missed Nancy, Gabriel's sister just by mentioning the same name as her. Before he ended the call, he said he's going to see me one of this days.

I check my face on my mini compact mirror. I just added some face powder and my love that red shade of lipstick. And after that, I decided to go outside to check the flow of our customers, and of course to also check what is Gabriel's current situation outside.

It's been three days since he insisted himself to become one of our waiter, and I can see he's enjoying what his job and also enjoying to maintain the inside and outside of the restaurant with fresh flowers everyday. Tsk.Tsk. Efforts of the business man.

Gabriel's POV:

"You are really a handsome waiter, son. Are you just a newbie here? I haven't seen you the last time when me and my husband ate here."

I smiled to the complement of one of the lady I am currently assisting. "Thank you, Maam. And yes, I am their new waiter here. I've just started three days ago."

"Hmm.. well, they're all nice here. It's written on the faces of every employee here. They all praised the management on the way they threat them, especially the owner. Actually we haven't met the owner yet, and I want to meet him or her. How about you son, have you personally met your boss?"

My smile widened with her question. I really wanted to say..'Yes ma'am, I already met the owner of this restaurant and she's actually my wife. And that I am doing this thing just to see her and talk to her everyday.' but I just keep it to myself, because I know Madi doesn't want to show herself in public.

"Yes Ma'am, I met her already and like what the waiters' said... I mean my workmates, she's one of the best employer."

"Wow! So the owner is a woman."

I just smiled and nodded and continued to take their orders. When I finished with them, I noticed Tony, the head waiter.. looking around and seems searching for something.

"Tony, is there anything I can do to help?" I approached him and he smiled at me.

"Actually Sir, I'm looking for a vacant area for eleven persons."

"How many again?"

"Eleven persons, Sir."

"Hmm..okay, let me help you."

I said understanding his problem. It's sunday today and the customers were double of numbers compared to the other days of the week. The two rooms for private events were already occupied so we need to find a vacant area for his new customers.

I am currently fixing my apron when I felt a tap on my shoulder. And when I turned around, the face of my grinning sister first came to my view. Then behind her are my mom, dad and the rest of the family.

"Hi brother. I missed you!" Nancy lunged at me and hugged me tight.

"Ohh..oh!" I hugged her back and kissed her forehead. How did they know that I'm here?

"Hi son."

"What are you doing here, Dad?" I asked smiling and hugged my father and then my mom.

"We actually didn't know you're here, Gab. What are you doing here and why are you in a waiter's uniform?" my mom's loud question. That's exactly what I wanted to ask them.

And I have no choice but to explain to them what I am really doing in the restaurant and why I am wearing a waiter's uniform.

"You already found her?"

"You already found, Madi?

They all asked in unison and I proudly nodded.

"Wow! So, don't tell me you're doing this hard job for her?" that was Nancy's amused question.

But I just smiled and nodded.

"Please Gabriel, make it right this time. You already had a chance before, but you let it go. You let go of the most precious woman." Aunt Cindy smiled at me. I know how much of Madi fan she is.

"Yeah, you're Aunt is right. Madi is a fine woman. But I hope you're really ready to enter in this new chapter of your life, Gabriel." it's my Mom who holds my hand.

"I know guys. I let her go once, but I promise not to do it again whatever my happens. I know all of you knows how much Madi means to me and you all witnessed that. And this time, I'm willing to do everything just to have her back."

The words I've said were all true. I finally realized what a real love is and it's meaning. I didn't love Stacey, I love Madi. There's a great difference

excitedly nodded.

And we headed our ways towards the back office. There... we found Noelle and Martin laughing together, and I didn't missed the spark of jealousy in Nancy's eyes. Tsk.Tsk.Tsk. What a small world, right?

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

"Love, I'm gonna go to Paris the next day. It's a business trip."

I lowered the magazine on the table and glanced up at Gabriel. I decided not to go to the restaurant today and check the emails of our coffee shop head from Colorado. But when he noticed my plan, he also didn't go. He stayed in his room and knocked on my door and here he is, in front of me and letting me know about his trip.

"Why do you have to tell me where you're going?" I asked with a sarcastic chuckled.

"I want you to know my whereabouts."

"Why.. to also know mine after this?"

"No! That's not what I mean. I just want to tell you, so if you missed me.. you know where to go." he said with a wink.

And I laughed at him.

"I've really missed that laugh." he seriously said that caused my laugh to die.

I sighed and avoided his gaze by lowering my head on the magazine.

"Can we just atleast be friend again?"

He asked but I remained quiet, I just focused my eyes on the colored book in front of me.

"Atleast friend? If you can't give me your trust or the love you had for me before, I'm willing to wait Madi. I'm going to work for it, and I'll wait 'till you become ready again."

This time I looked at him, but still in silent.

"I'm sorry. I'm sorry for being jerk and insensitive----"

"I already heard that. You already said that." I said with a blank expression on my face.

"I know. But I want to say it again. I want you to know how sorry I am, Madi. And I'm going to say sorry again, if I can't promise not to see you everyday or to go away from you, because I can't. I can't Madi. It's okay if you want to ignore me everyday, I will take it. Just don't go away again please, like before."

I bite my lower lip and gulped the lump that formed inside my throat. This is the first time I saw the real hurt from his eyes, and this is also the first time he showed me this vulnerable side of him. So when he take my left hand which rested on top of the table, I just let him. He wrapped it with his both hands and brought it to his lips and to his face. I can feel the hot liquid around my eyes but I blinked it away immediately.

"I love you. I love you so much, Madi. I hope you could give me a chance, I------"

"I suddenly feel like sleepy." I said getting my hand from his hold. But I didn't look at him. "Can you please lock the door when you go out? Thank you." I stand up and pushed the chair under the table.

I turned around and walked towards my room without glancing back on him. I need to do that because I felt like a bomb that ready to explode in any minute. And that's what really happened, the moment I closed door. Loud sobs escaped from my lips as tears also flowed down on my cheeks like they were in a race.

I leaned on the door and brought my hand over my chest. I am laughing while crying. I remember those woman in the movies, who burst out crying right after they closed the door, and I found them so weird before. Why they just can't get immediately into their bed and cried and not stayed standing on the door while crying?

But fucking shit! Because now I understand them. The pain, the tears and sobs will get you numb that you can't be able to move so you'll have to remained standing for you not to breakdown.

It's been a long time since I cried hard like this way. Why do I still feel the pain from the past? Why can't I just moved on? Why do still love him? Yeah.. maybe because I still love him, that even after this past years, I am still in love with him. That I didn't moved on at all, that I just keep this feeling inside me for me to go on with my life. But why do I can't give in with this feeling? Why am I still holding back?
