"Hi," said Will, still standing outside of the door. Jake wasn't aware that
Will was standing there. "Hi," said Melanie, panicking a little. "Can we
talk?" asked Will. "Uhh, right now's really not a.good time," she said. But
it was too late. Jake and Will had already seen each other. "Hi, I'm Will,"
said Will, reaching out his hand and introducing himself to Jake. "Jake,"
said Jake, reaching out his hand to meet Will's. They shook hands and sat
Melanie sat down next to Jake on the bed. Will sat across from them in a
chair. The room was silent; the tension mounting. "So." said Will, breaking
the silence. "I should.probably go," he said, getting up. Melanie got up
after him to let him out. He walked to the door, but turned back to kiss
her. He wrapped his arms around her and held her tightly. This was too much
for Jake. He stood up and took Melanie from Will's grip. Taking her in his
arms, he wrapped her in his arms tightly and kissed her. "I think you need
to go," said Melanie to Will, after kissing Jake. Will nodded and left the
room without another word. Melanie locked the door behind him and looked
back at Jake.
"He's just this guy that I met that offered me a job. It's over," she
said. Jake nodded, but Melanie knew he didn't believe her. She came over
and sat down next to him. She took his hand into hers and held it tightly.
"I'm sorry Jake," she said. "I never meant to hurt you, or anyone else for
that matter," she said. Jake turned to look at her. Melanie stared back at
him. "Jake, I can't do this," she said, getting up. "I know," he said.
"Hey." He grabbed her hand and she turned back towards him. He stood up to
meet her. Melanie placed her hand around his head and ran her fingers
through his hair. He leaned in and kissed her.
She wrapped her other hand around his head and let herself give into his
warm touch. She let her lips part from his and got up on the bed, keeping
her eyes fixed on his.
