The door creaked opened and Don waltzed back in.
"Vanessa would be here in half an hour." He states clearly amused.
"You're doing all this for a football position!" I spat out in disgust
"At first, but now I'm doing all this to show you that I will always win. No matter how hard you try, I will always win.."
He says, chuckles and then leaves.
"I should've listened to Nessa. She was right Mr Harold was one of them, I'm glad she didn't give me the real recording but it doesn't matter now, Don is going to blackmail her into handing it over to me." I sigh in defeat.
"I screwed up. I screwed up really badly." I mumbled dejected.
After some time, the door creaked open again and Vanessa was roughly shoved in.
"Nessa..." I called.
"You just had to go and ruin everything didn't you!" She snapped clearly angry.
"Just don't talk to me. I had everything planned but no you just couldn't stay put."
"You had everything planned, we were supposed to solve this thing together...."
"We were. You had a great part to play but it didn't involve going to the Sergeant who I told you was dirty!"
"Yeah, I know about that. Don spent his merry time explaining how utterly stupid you were!" She fired before groaning.
"Now we're both screwed because Don now has in his position the only recording left."
"You handed it over..." I said surprised.
"Of course I handed it over dumb ass." She rolled her eyes and paced around.
"But why? I screwed everything up. You could've carried your plan out and left me. It's my fault anyways."
"I know right. That would be the rational thing to do but yet here I am."
"Why?" I asked breathlessly.
"Because am a fool. A fool who's in love with you." She says and turns around.
"Vanessa it's not like I don't want us to talk about what you said..."
"That's exactly what you don't want. We've been going around in circles for days now. You avoid the very topic and on Saturday you proved to me I mean nothing. I got the message Skylar so can we please just focus on getting out of here...." She trailed off.
"Well we can't. We're stuck and you're right I have been avoiding it so why don't we talk about it now huh..."
"I didn't touch you not because I didn't want to but because I respect you and your body. Respect Nessa, you earned my respect. Any other girl on my bed would have her clothes ripped off but with you, watching a movie is fine by me."
I started. I didn't know what to say but the words just came out of me the moment I started talking.
"I played the game with you. It wasn't a game Nessa, it was something more and I'm glad you backed out because if you didn't, I'll admit that for the first time in three years, I might've lost." I said watching her reaction, she didn't respond just took a deep breath and I continued.
"You're the best thing that happened to me Vanessa. I'm not good with words at all but that's all I can say to you. You must be really fucking blind to see that I don't love you more."
I said and she blushed furiously.
Before we could enjoy our moment, I heard a slow clapping and someone emerged from the shadows....
