"It may not be home but it is an adventure."~UNKNOWNAntonio opened my door and held his hand out for me, when did he came here so fast? I gently grabbed his awaiting hand and moved out of the SUV.I started walking behind him. We climbed 3 small steps and came in front of the beautiful front door, I could tell it was made of expensive wood, it had round circle shaped handles on each of the two doors to knock with, it was royal type.Before Antonio could ring the bell. The doors were opened by someone, it was like they opened by themselves because there was no one in sight to greet us.Antonio tugged my hand gently and I continued to go inside with him.

13. Light And Darkness
Stars, hide your fires: Let not light see my black and deep desires.~William ShakespeareI woke up after a much needed beauty sleep. I stretched then turned around to see the other side empty.I was kind of relieved to find that Alessandro left early, I didn't wanted to face him after my rant last night.I looked around the room it was dark, even though it was morning I checked the time it was 10:07 am. The sun was up but the curtains were closed.I was feeling suffocated by this darkness I wanted light. I quickly went to the curtains and opened them without wasting a moment. Instantly the warm rays of the sun hit my skin and the room was bright with the natural light. I smiled feeling that I can breathe now.I hated it when mom used to wake me up like this she would come in my room and open the curtains all the way making the light hit my face directly, but now I realize how important this natural light is.It gives you a fee

"Vale.." he stopped midway when his eyes took in everything.Everyone was staring at him with curiousity, I found there expressions cute and couldn't hold back my chuckle.Alessandro came out of his daze and stared at me "Che cosa sta succedendo qui?"

"It's the connection we can't explain."~UnknownI crossed the kitchen gracefully, went to the stairs and climbed them with confidence but when I was out of everyone's site I ran like a headless chicken to my room.I reached there and slammed the door shut and leaned my back to it, my right hand placed on my heart.It was beating wildly like it would rip out of my chest any moment.The 'me' down there confident, calm and all that was a facade.In truth I was so scared I thought I would pee my pants.The moment Alessandro started choking I didn't thought it would effect him so much but I should've thought carefully.Ofcourse he had to react that way I added 4 full spoons of salt in his batter and then the coffee on top.When everyone glared at me I thought no was is going to let m

Not like want your money for my shopping but more like want your money for the furniture and groceries." I quickly cleared the meaning behind my words saying the sentence in one breathe.His eyes widened a little but he controlled his expressions like usual, he was clearly surprised by my words."So are you going to give it orrr not?"
