Chapter 22

Catherine knocked on Xavier's bedroom door and opened it up slowly. He was sitting on his bed with a cold compress on his hand. She winced and came towards him.

"What are you doing here Catherine?" He asked

"I came to talk to you" She answered "I just want to say how stupid I am for breaking up with you over some stupid shit like I did. It's all been really overwhelming for me"

"You're not the girl I knew before" He answered "You're not the same Catherine that I had liked so much before you met Lucas"

"I can't say sorry for who I am" She answered

"I know, that's why I know you're here to ask for me back and I'm going to say no"

"Why?" She asked

"I know it, Catherine, as well as Becky, as well as Lucas, you're in love with him and I'm in love with who you were" He answered

"Xavier" she said but stopped suddenly "It's not like that"

"Look inside you Catherine" He said "Can you tell me you honestly broke up with me over something as stupid as people talking smack? Is that the REAL deep down inside reason?"

"I don't know what to say, Xavier"

"If you looked me right in the eye right now and said, I don't want anything to do with Lucas romantically, I'd take you back right now, and right this second, I'd love you Catherine"

"I can't" I whispered after a moment's hesitation

"That's why I can't be with you anymore" He answered "I love you Catherine, I love you so much and I'll always hate you and love you"

"Why hate me?" She asked now crying softly

"You could never be mine" He answered

7 Days Later

Lucas's house was looming above me and I didn't want to go in but I needed too. It was almost like I could hear my throat stuck in my throat as my forced my feet to move forward along the patterned walk way. The large wooden door that I had once stood at to apologize to Lucas now faced me. The door bell beamed at me in a bright orange color. My finger twitched until I sucked it in and got right to it. I wanted this, I needed this and nothing was going to stop her from getting it.

She took a deep breathe and pushed in. The sounding Ding, Ding, Ding almost made her jump. She wanted to run, wanted to hide in the bushes to stop the butler from coming to the door. The sounds of shuffling feet and the door opened. It was Lucas. This was not what she had practiced before she came over. It was suppose to be the butler first and than she'd go over once in her head what was going on first. No, it was all ruined because he answered the door.

"Catherine" He said surprised his eye brow rising in curiosity "What are you doing here?"

"I just…"She trailed off "Needed to talk to you"

"Come in" He said and looked around before she came into the large house "I wasn't expecting you"

"I wasn't really expecting to be here either" She started as she ran her hands through the edges of her hair "but I need to get this off my chest"

"What?" he asked looking concerned.

She leaned in and kissed him suddenly, her lips crashing with his as she wraps her arms around his neck. She melted into him and she felt like she was at home in him. She let her fingers play at the soft hair at the nape of his neck. They pulled away a moment later as she placed her head on his.

"I love you too much not to be with you" She whispered

"Why?" He asked "I've been such a bastard"

"You aren't going to agree with me on everything, You'll always be an asshole over stuff and most of all you aren't easy, you are a bastard but you are the bastard who makes me laugh and think" She answered "I don't want to live the rest of my life as safe Lucas, I want someone to keep me on my toes"

"Catherine" He whispered "I don't deserve you"

"No" she answered with a soft laugh "but you've got me"

He pulled her into another kiss his hands wrapping into her hair. Catherine wrapping her arms around his neck again as there lips danced. She was finally in the right place at the right moment and it was sure as hell as chance of a life time.
