Here comes this week’s romantic short story:
Title: That Special Someone
“So, you think you can do this,” David asked Ashley as he pulled out a paper towel from the kitchen napkin holder and lay over a sea-green ceramic plate.
“What made you think I can’t?” She bumped her eyebrows and scowled, gently immersing the frying basket into the hot oil.
“Careful… it will splatter.”
“Ouch…” She whined with a tingle of burn on her hand.
“Shit. Are you alright? Hope you have not scalded your hand…”
“Chill. It’s just a minor burn.”
“Come on…” David dragged Ashley to the kitchen sink and held her hand under the cold running water.
“I’m alright. Let’s see if the wings are done.” She lifted her gaze and looked at him.
“Better you leave the kitchen in its owner’s hands and relax in the living room.” David pushed Ashley out of the kitchen to the cozy living room of his farm house, unknown of the fact that the woman he was living with for the past few months was a famous movie star.
Tired of her materialistic lifestyle and unnecessary show-off, Ashley left her house on a whim. She was seeking oblivion in someone’s close company when God granted her wish of finding a person who didn’t know a thing about her.
David appeared like an angel when Ashley knocked his country house in the middle of a stormy night. He politely took her in and since then they were living together.
“Where’s your coffee?” She asked looking up meeting his deep dark eyes.
“Way too much caffeine in my bloodstream. I’m on a coffee fast right now.”
“Oh, come on… You can’t be.” She stood and came close. “I’m not going to drink this stuff alone. You need to share this.” She raised the coffee mug to his lips, and he couldn’t resist taking a sip from the mug.
“Shall, I get another cup for you?” he asked as he sensed his heart melting by the sight of her thin pink lips. Something citrusy wafted in his nose as she edged closer to him and smiled, her green eyes twinkling like two shiny stars.
“Not needed.” She rotated the mug and carefully placed her lips at the steamy impression of David’s lips, sipping the hot beverage.
Their eyes did the talking as they came close, and the most awaited kiss happened. Their lips played for a while before they pulled back holding each other’s hands.
“I knew you’re a special woman.”He gazed into her eyes, a smile curving his mouth.
She shrugged, her brows furrowing. Her gaze dipped to the floor. “Special?”
“I know who you are.” He lifted her chin up with two fingers.
“I’m sorry I didn’t mean to hurt you. I should’ve told you but things were so beautiful I didn’t want to ruin them by telling you the truth.” Her forehead creased as tears blurred her vision.
He came close and dab the streaming tears on his fingers.
“Oh, baby. Don’t cry. We always dream a life that we don’t have. You can stay here as long as you want but you need to go back some day.”
“Will you miss me?” She sniffed looking in his eyes.
“Of course, I will miss you…”
“I don’t want to go back. I hate my celebrity status. Can I stay with you forever?”
“You can sweetheart but don’t give up on something you achieved with so much of hard work. You can drop in here anytime and can stay for as long as you want but you need to carry on. I hope you’re getting me.”
She smiled with eyes and mouth. New tears glazed her eyes as she went into David’s open arms.
