SCARLET

"What are we making today?" I asked as walk towards the meat shop at the supermarket. Luke was pushing the cart while we choose the ingredients. The supermarket wasn't that far from his apartment.

It's amazing to see this side of him. I imagined him going to the groceries alone. A billionaire himself was supposed to have someone who shops for him.

"Do you come here often? Don't you have an assistant or butler to do this for you?"

"Simple matters like this don't always require an assistant, Scar. I used to live alone in an apartment during college."

"Oh, " I nodded. "Then, what are you making?"

"Chicken marsala."

Luke stopped in front of the fresh meat section. He picked up a whole chicken and asked the salesperson for assistance. I was really amazed at how he lives his normal life.

Luke Alejandro can shop alone at a meat shop. That was new to me. I couldn't imagine his father; Thomas would do these things for Mom.

When the butcher gave back the chicken packed in a wrapper, he put the chicken on the cart. "Now, I need mushrooms." He said.

"I'll help you!"

He chuckled. "No need. Just stay there and watch."

"Then why ask me to come with you?" I pursed my lips.

"Hmm, do you want to buy anything?"

I rolled my eyes at him.

"Oh come on, don't be upset. I took you here because it's boring to stay in my penthouse alone."

I looked away from him. "I'd rather stay in the car."

"Really? You'd rather leave me here?" he teased.

"I'm just saying that—" I stopped in the middle of walking when I saw something in the snack section.

"What? What is it?" Luke looked at my eyes direction.

I gasped. My eyes grew wide. "Is that what I think it is?"

"What?"

"There." I ran over to the snack I saw. I grabbed the packaging and read the label. The purple glossy plastic packaging was shining brightly before my eyes.

"It's the same dried squid I bought last summer in Indonesia!"

He narrowed his eyes. "You went to Indonesia?"

"Yes, in Bali. It's where we spent our summer vacation last year. I can't believe this is actually here!"

"Why didn't you come to New York, then?" he asked suddenly. "You were able to go on vacations during the summer."

I blinked. "No, I don't usually leave the apartment. It's just one time." I grabbed three packs of the dried squid. "Luke." I turned around and looked up to him.

rld about you. This is how we are, Luke."

"I'm sorry if you feel that way." He moved away. His jaw clenched.

"Luke, I'm afraid…"

"Do you think I'm not? But I'm choosing you over this fear. Do you want to know what I really feel about this?"

"What you really feel…" I whispered. I swallowed hard. My mouth felt dry.

He stood up, leaning his face closer mine. Our noses almost touched. Our foreheads adhered. His fingers traced my arm, moving up slowly to my shoulders, traveling on the back of my head. I held his hand.

"And I believe you feel the same, " he whispered.

"I'm sure we don't feel the same."

I loved you ever since. You're my first love, Luke. I dreamt of you every single day. I was only choosing the right way to save the family. To save you.

"Your father is going to hurt you. I don't want to see you like that again."

"I don't care. I'll protect you, " he promised.

"How about Mom?"

"Then I'll protect her too. You don't have to worry about Gene."

I looked at his eyes, "You don't know what you're saying, Luke."

"I know what I am saying. I've known it since the first time I kissed you, I held you. I just don't believe in myself at that time. I don't want to lose you just because my father married your mother. We don't share the same blood." He continued, "I don't think I can live under the same roof craving for you like this and I want you like this."

I gave in. My eyes had failed me. I began to cry. "Lucas…" I sobbed.

And I think his eyes had failed him too. A drop of tear already escaped his eye. "I love you, Scarlet."
