“Daniel, I think,” Vala says, scrunching up her nose. “I think I’m in love with you.” She wrings her hands together at her front. It had taken her several hours and even more practice runs with the mirror as her company, to work her way up to telling him.
He raises his eyes from the papers on his desk to fix them on her.
“Daniel,” she says again, pleading with him silently when he doesn’t respond any further.
His eyes drift back to his work.
“Well?” Vala prompts him.
“Please Daniel. Say something.”
She pushes off the desk where she’d been sitting for the past half hour and shifts closer to him. She rests a hand on his shoulder.
“A girl tells a guy she loves him... well maybe loves him, I could be wrong,” she attempts a smirk but fails. “She needs an answer.”
He slams his pen to the desk, unsettling the papers and exhales loudly. He spins around to meet her face on.
“Vala! Stop this. Just stop.” His gaze sweeps straight through her. “I’m sorry but I don’t love you. And I don’t need you hanging around in here, being irritating! It’s not helping.”
She opens her mouth and then closes it.
“Go. Just go,” he says.
She narrows her eyes in confusion and in pain.
“All right! All right!” she abruptly turns, tears prickling at the corners of her eyes. “I’m going.”
He sighs as she lingers a moment longer. “Look. I’m sorry, okay?” he says. “I don’t believe that you’re ready for a serious relationship and I’m not ready to try something until I’m sure.”
Her face is void of any happiness when she looks at him. She stares at him for nearly ten seconds before the pain gets to be too much for her. She breaks away from his gaze and runs.
