Chapter 5

It's 6 a.m , and right now, I'm cooking for the breakfast.

Yes, after staying at Nathan's house, I always cooked and prepared breakfast. And after coming home from work, I'll cook dinner for the two of us. In fact, almost every day, I prepared clothes for Nathan. Sometimes, I feel like I already have a husband, because I do these things.

"Good morning, Alexa"

I turned around when I heard this voice, and I could see that Nathan was already tidy, standing next to me.

"Good morning too, Nathan" I replied, looking at him and smiling. Then I silent, and watched him look so handsome, like a prince, from a fairy tale, "You look so handsome this morning" I said, without taking my eyes off him.

He laughed and ruffled my hair, after hearing what I said, "Thank you, for compliment Alexa, but I'm always handsome" he said.

I sighed roughly, and resumed my activities, which had been delayed, "Yes, you are always handsome," I said. But now, I feel a little sorry, because I said that. And I forgot that sometimes Nathan was too confident. But that's okay, because he always looks handsome, and also cool.

Hearing what I just said, made him laugh again, and hugged my waist with one hand, "What did you cook this morning, for breakfast?" he asked, looking at me from the side.

"This morning, I made Tuna Sandwich for our breakfast," I replied, without looking at him.

"Wow, it sounds interesting. I got impatient, and wanted to eat breakfast" he said, and made me laugh, "Oh yeah, I still feel bad for you, for what I said last night" he said.

"The last night? Was it when you told your client we would never have a special relationship?" I asked, turning to him, and looking at him from the side.

"Yes, that's right," he replied, while lowering his head, "Really, I feel like I hurt you accidentally" he continued.

I chuckled, and resumed my activities, "Nathan Nathan, didn't I tell you, that I don't feel hurt at all, because of what you said. So you don't have to, keep feeling bad," I said.

"But I still feel bad for you, and I shouldn't have said like last night," he said.

"Never mind Nathan, don't talk about that again, because I really don't feel hurt at you," I said, smiling.

"Very well" he said, nodding his head.


I breathed a sigh of relief, after setting my foot, inside Nathan's house. Today's not much work, but somehow I feel so tired. And it seems, soaking in warm water, will be so much fun. Because, it will make the muscles in my body tense, relax again.

Immediately I walked to the kitchen, to get a drink, because I felt so thirsty. After arriving in the kitchen, I stopped my steps in front of the refrigerator. Then I opened the door, and looked inside.

*the sound of the bell sounds*

"That must be Nathan" I muttered.

Immediately I closed the refrigerator door again, and walked over to open the door. And when I got near the door, I stopped my steps, and opened the door.

After I opened the door, I saw a man, who was standing right in front of me. And that man was indeed Nathan.

"Good evening, Alexa" he said, accompanied by a smile, etched on his face.

"Good evening too, Nathan. Apparently, you've come home" I said, smiling at him.

Actually, he didn't usually greet me like this, when he just got home from work.

"Come on in," I said, moving away from the doorway.

"You go ahead, I want to take something, which was left in the car" he said.

I just nodded my head, and walked back to the kitchen. Then I opened the refrigerator door, and looked at its contents.

I took a can of coke, and closed the door again. Yes, I finally decided, to drink this refreshing drink, because right now, my throat felt so dry.

But suddenly, I felt a pair of hands covering my eyes, which made me so shocked. Slowly, I touched the hand, and I was sure it was Nathan's hand, "Nathan, this is you, right?" I asked.

But that someone was just silent, and continued to cover my eyes.

Out of curiosity, I put the hands away, and looked back. And apparently, my guess was correct, because it was Nathan.

I let out a sigh of relief, knowing that it was him. Then I turned my body, and looked at him, "Why you suddenly closed my eyes like that?" I asked.

"There's something I want to show you," he said, chuckling softly, and looking at me.

"Something? What?" I asked, staring at him in confusion. But now, I'm starting to be curious and try to guess, what does he want to show me?

"But you have to close your eyes first," he replied.

"Why should it be like that?" I asked again, without taking my eyes off him.

"Think of it as a surprise, so you have to close your eyes" he said.

With a heavy sigh, I sighed and nodded my head, "Okay, I'll do as you tell" I said, which then immediately closed my eyes.

"Now, come on, follow me" he said, helping me walk.

I just obeyed, and walked with my closed eyes.

A few moments later, he stopped his steps, and held my arms, "We're here" he said.

"Can I open my eyes?" I asked.

"Of course, now you can open your eyes" he replied.

Slowly, I opened my eyes and blinked a few times. But I frowned, when I saw a bouquet of flowers, which was on the table.

Wait, are those flowers for me? But, why are he's giving me flowers all of a sudden? In fact, I had no birthday.

"Who are the flowers for?" I asked, turning my head to him, who was standing behind me.

"Of course for you," he replied.

"For me? But why are you giving me flowers?" I asked again, staring at him in confusion.

"Isn't it okay if I give you flowers?" he asked, turning to ask me.

"That's not what I meant, but I feel so surprised, because--"

"This is also for you" he said, handing over a small box.

Seeing the little box, made me frown again, and turned to stare at him, "What is this?" I asked.

"Just open it, if you're curious about what's inside," he said.

Without saying anything, I took the box from his hand, and immediately opened it. But I was so surprised, when I saw that it contained a necklace, which was so beautiful, "N-Nathan, is this necklace for me?" I asked, turning to look at him.

"Yes, the necklace is for you too," he replied, nodding his head.

Immediately I hugged him tightly, and smiled happily, "Thank you Nathan, I really like the surprise you gave" I said.

He also hugged me back, and rubbed my back, "You're welcome Alexa, I'm happy if you like that gift" he said.

"But why are you suddenly giving me a surprise?" I asked, looking up and staring at him.

A smile began to etch on his face, then he rubbed my head and said, "Because it is a sign of my forgiveness to you, because last night, I have hurt you indirectly".

Hearing what he just said, made me hug him again, and smile. Really, I did not expect, if it seems that he could act sweet like this, as if I was his lover. And to be honest, I forgot the last time I had a sweet surprise like this.

Not long after, I let go of my hug, and looked at him with a smile. Then I kissed him on the cheek, and said, "Thanks again Nathan, I really like this gift".

"You're welcome," he replied, smiling and rubbing my head again, "You want I put the necklace on?" he asked.

Immediately I nodded my head, without taking my eyes off him. Then he took a necklace that was in the little box, and put it around my neck.

As for me, I was silent and smile happily again.

"Now, let's see," he said, smiling.

I lowered my head and looked at the necklace, which was now around my neck.

"You look even prettier, Alexa. And, it suits you so much" he said.

I lifted my head and turned to him, "It's because of you, who bought me this necklace. And, you chose the right necklace for me" I said, smiling at him.

But he just smiled, and ruffled my hair.

Now, I really feel happy, because I got a surprise and gift from Nathan, even though he said that the gift was a sign of his apology. But that's okay, because I still feel so happy.
