Continued from “Amarte Es Un Placer”.
“I wanted to look up.”
“Look up? What do you mean?” I had to ask her.
“Look up, sit still and appreciate how far I have come.”
She turned her gaze back to the ocean and closed her eyes, enjoying the strong wind on her face.
“I thought that Puerto Rico would be the ideal place to relax, breath and just look up at the sky, like what we’re doing right now. A place to get back to basics, get back at one with myself…just “be”. Does that sound crazy Alejandro?”
My skin always tingled when my name rolled off her luscious lips – I loved it. My thoughts wandered back to my deep ache for her. I shook the thoughts free from my head.
“No. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful places but this island is my heart. It is an amazing place to just “look up”, as you say.”
We sat in silence and she was lost in the ocean again. It was obvious that she had other things on her mind.
“Is that what you’ve been doing almost every night on your balcony? Just being?”
Her smile disappeared and her head swiveled quickly towards me. I stopped breathing when she brushed the hair out of her face to give me the full attention of her dark brown eyes.
“Almost every night? You’ve been watching me?”
My skin flushed with embarrassment. I couldn’t tell if it was fear or surprise written on her face but when her hand came towards me in the darkness, I expected nothing less than a swift slap.
But Delaney surprised me by raking her fingers through my hair and then trailing them down the side of my face. Her eyes flickered with curiosity as she leaned in dangerously close to me.
“That’s funny,” she whispered, her sweet breath caressing my lips, “because I’ve been watching you too.”
My eyes widened at her words and my heart raced when I saw her lick her lips and focus on mine.
“Alejandro,” her eyes searched mine, “I think that this is the part where you’re supposed to kiss me.”
