"I'm ready to tell you why I said all that in the church."

I turned to look at him but my head was acting funny, I closed my eyes and tried to listen to what he was about to say.

I was not sober and it didn't seem like a good time but I wanted to know why I was here, my head was starting to spin as I took more drink.

"Well, it's about time."

I slurred trying to focus on one image of Tristan.

He reached for the bottle and took a big gulp then leaned back on the seat, I was drifting to sleep slowly and Tristan was already talking but I wasn't hearing anything.

I stopped fighting it, I closed my eyes and welcomed the darkness.

I hated hangovers, my stomach and my head made me stay in bed, I wasn't sure how I got to my room.

I groaned gripping the sheets, I needed some painkillers or this agonizing pain would make me go crazy.

There was a knock on my door, I groaned before answering, Morris walked in with a small tray.

"Good morning Miss Simpson, hope you slept well? I made you some hangover soup."

"Hangover soup?"

I sat up and collected it.

"Please get me some Tylenol."

He nodded and left.

It was my first time taking a hangover soup and it surprisingly tasted good. After taking the soup and the pills, I went back to sleep.

When I woke up it was past one, the sun was extremely bright today. I took a long and soothing shower and dressed up in a floral summer dress.

I packed my hair up in a ponytail and left the room. Morris was making lunch and Tristan was nowhere to be seen.

"Where is Tristan?"

I asked Morris.

"Why are you looking for me?"

I almost jumped from the sudden question from behind.

Tristan opened the fridge and grabbed a bottle of water, he was wearing swim shorts and a grey towel hung on his left shoulder, his wet hair was swept back. I watched his Adam apple bob as he drank the water, it was so sexy to watch.

I tried not to let my eyes wander around the specs and crevices on his torso, man it was getting hot in here. Did Morris increase the heat?

He was finally done drinking the water, my eyes didn't miss the drop that slid down his lower lip till it reached the floor. I was still wondering how something so trivial he did without adding any effort left me all hot and bothered.

I pretended to check my short nails when he turned to look at me.

"I was taking a swim, I never told you I needed a babysitter."

He said and left the kitchen.

"I just wanted to say thank you for taking me to my room when I was wasted!"

I screamed after him.

I sighed and took a seat at the island, I couldn't remember much from last night.

"Do you need help with anything?"

"No, Miss Simpson and thanks for asking."

"Come on, you look like you have s

, he finished his drink and dropped the glass on the floor and sat upright.

"Come here."

He pointed to the spot next to him, I gave him a questioning look not moving.

He grabbed my hand and pulled me to sit next to him, he kept staring at my face as I sat there. I waited for him to say something and when he did I wished he never did.

"Your ears are cute, I have never seen you with your hair up."

I didn't say anything.

"Why ain't you saying anything or looking at me?"

He sounded annoyed.

"I don't know Adrian, what do you want me to say? Congrats?"

I asked staring at him.

"You look damn cute when you're angry."

He said with low laughter, I got more upset and stood up.

"What's up with you?"

"You didn't have to follow me here Adrian!" I snapped.

"I was worried, okay. You were acting weird."

"Stop worrying about me, stop messing with my head, stop making me feel things you don't feel for me, Goddamnit don't call me cute!"

"What are you talking about?"

He stood up and I stepped back.

"Nothing, you should go back to Karen. We both know Tristan sucks at making conversations."

"I have a girlfriend doesn't change anything between us Chloe."

"Well, I'm sorry it does, it changes everything a lot of things for me."

I gave him one last look and stormed off with one question bouncing in my head.

What the hell did I just do?

"Chloe wait."

I heard him say behind me but I didn't stop.

Tristan stood at the door staring at me as I walked toward him, I wondered how long he's been standing there.

He stepped aside for me to pass, I ran into Karen on my way to the staircase.

"Have you seen Adrian?"

I glared at her and made my way to the stairs.

"Is she okay?"

I heard her ask.

I walked to my room and slumped on my bed.

"What did you just do Chloe?"
