"I love you Everlyn."
I burst into giggles.
His expression turned exasperate.
I only laughed more.
"Why do you laugh so much?" He asked with his exasperation.
"I don't know." I replied innocently.
He ran his hands through his auburn hair.
He raised an eyebrow at me.
"Do you laugh at everything?" He asked with curiosity as his gaze bored into mine. I felt myself lost in his royal blue eyes.
"I guess so. I really can't help it." I replied shrugging.
He didn't say anything for a moment.
"You know why you're so cool to hang out with?" He asked, changing the subject.
"Why?" I asked childishly gazing up at him.
"'Cause when people are with you, you're smile and laugh can melt away all their troubles."
"You never smile Ev." Warren accused me.
I didn't reply.
He continued to fire on.
"You never laugh or smile! It's not f---ing normal! You know people say you're not human."
I shrugged. "Maybe I'm not."
"It's like you don't give a damn 'bout what happens between us!" He scolded raising his voice to optimum level. Now everyone in the small Italian restaurant was starring at us.
"Warren, don't assume anything." I said calmly, no change of expression. I knew what was coming. It always ended like this, I was use to it. I knew, yet I didn't care.
His expression turned fierce.
"I'm not assuming goddammit! I know you don't give a shit!" He boomed at me.
I remained silent, after all, I had the right, right?
"See? Proven right there! You don't give a damn!" Warren continued to shout.
"And all this is because I don't laugh or smile?" I asked, clarifying.
"F--- no! You're a vampire! No, even vampire's smile and laugh. You're an alien, a witch, anything but human!" He cried.
I remained expressionless and took a sip of my luke warm soup.
"Hell we're over! We're over!" He kicked his chair over before turning to leave.
"Hey Warren! You forgot something. And….I'm sorry." I called.
He came back and stood beside me, waiting.
"You forgot this." I told him. I splashed the ice-cold water on him.
Before he could even react, I continued on. "And I'm sorry I didn't do it earlier."
I had said it all in a calm voice, expression unchanged. He, on the other hand stood there with steam rising from his head.
"By the way, you can leave now." I waved good-bye coolly.
He turned and stormed off after shouting the f word at me.
I ignored him and took another bite of my meal sighing. Another day of my typical life, I knew it was coming, it was just a matter of time.
