So I know it's probably been a while so I apologize. I hope you guys enjoy and thank you!
I stood there starring at Carter as if he had said the most nonsensical thing in the world. As if he had just asked me to help him wash his cat while it was on fire eating a t-rex.
"Carter I'm not sure what to say," I said softly. I loved him and it made sense to marry him, but an invisible force stopped me.
"Say you'll marry me," Carter said. I bite my lip.
"I'll think about it okay. I just found out you slept with Kim behind my back. I know this is a pot calling a kettle black but how can I trust you?" I asked.
"Because you are all I need," Carter said.
"I'll think about it, okay?" I said.
"Fine," He said and I left, because I had a lot to think about.
*5 days later*
I woke to a knock on my door. I stood up from my bed and slowly made my way to the door. Who in the world would come here at 3 a.m.? I looked through the peep whole. Oh hell no! No I do not want to talk to him. He hasn't talked to me since I slept with him. I am not a booty call. No sir.
But my conscience gets the better me and I open the door.
"What do you want?" I asked glaring at the beautiful burnet that is soaked to the bone from the rain. Crap he was way too sexy for it to be legal. No, bad Nicole you can't think like that. You are soon going to be an engaged women.
"I wanted to apologize," He said.
"Chris couldn't this wait till morning?" I asked.
"No it couldn't, because if I didn't tell you sooner I might explode from guilt. I shouldn't have left like you were some chick I picked up at a bar. Nicole I'm sorry," He said sweetly.
"Come in," I said giving in to my good nature.
"I really need to get going," He said.
"I'm not going to let you get sick, because you came to apologize to me," I said strictly. He grinned and walked in.
"There's my best friend," He said as I went to find a towel.
"So what's new?" I asked tossing a towel at him. I went into the kitchen and turned and put on a kettle of water.
"Kim and I broke up, because honestly she was a bigger hoe than I was. She slept with all of my guy friends and Carter. I need to stop picking douche bags for friends," He said.
"I've tried to tell you that. But as usual you never listen. I'm sorry that it didn't work out with you and Kim," I said gently. I was putting hot chocolate mix into the cups.
"Ya, so what's new with you chicka?" He asked.
"Sometimes I swear you're gay," I said.
"Na, I like boobs better than dicks," Chris said. I laughed. "So what's new my female friend who said I wasn't allowed to call princess anymore?" I asked.
"Well, let's see. Yesterday I went and recorded my first track for my first album. Oh, and carter proposed," I said as the kettle started to whistled.
"That's great about the music thing. But what did you tell Carter?" He asked. I stirred the coco and took him out his cup mine in my other hand.
"I told him that I'd think about it," I said sitting on the couch next to him. Chris seemed shocked, but his eyes seemed to be sad as if he already knew what my answer would be.
"Tell him no," Chris said. I was shocked.
"Why?" I asked not actually sure how to respond to his forwardness.
"He slept with Kim first of all," Chris said.
"Once," I said. Chris laughed as if I was clueless.
"Princess, he's not being honest. I only found out that Kim and Carter slept together because I walked in on them," Chris said.
"Y-you're lying," I said looking down biting my lip.
"Nicole… when was the last time I lied to you?" He asked his voice softening.
"Never," I said. It was hard to admit but Chris was very honest seeing he couldn't lie at all. When he lied he started fidgeting and stuttering.
"Ya, that's what I thought, so what are you going to tell him" Chris asked.
"Chris... I love him. I'm going to tell him yes," I said.
I swear I had never seen Chris get this mad in my life. He stood up quickly and glared at me. He set his half gone cocoa down as well.
"Nicole... don't be an idiot. He's cheated on you on more than one occasion! Why the hell would you marry a guy you couldn't trust?!" He almost screamed.
"Chris you don't get it. I love him, and he loves me. Honestly, Chris I'm sorry. But I'm marrying him," I said sternly standing up.
He ran a hand through his and let out a frustrated breathe. "Nicole… don't be stupid. Carter isn't the right guy for you," He said
"And what you are?! You should have thought about that before you left me like your cheap 2 dollar hoes!" I yelled tears escaping my eyes. My vision became blurry.
"Nicole…" He said his voice soft and full of regret.
"No, I don't want to hear it. I think it's time for you to go," I said standing up and walking to the door.
"Fine Nicole," He said walking to the door. I opened it.
"Goodbye Christopher," I mumbled and watched him walk out. That's how I lost the best friendship I have ever had.
