'What am i going to say to him' Zoe wondered as she walked slowly in the rain to Dan's apartment. .She was tired of running and she even thought about heading back. Her makeup ran down her face now and her clothes were soaked.

Before she could think of anything else she wanted to say to Dan she looked up and saw that she was at Dan's apartment. 'Finally' she thought, she raced in the door and to the elevator. 'What? How can the elevator not be working … this is like something out of a television show this cant be happening now.' So she found the stairs and ran up 5 flights before coming to Dan's door. On her way up she started crying again 'What if he doesn't feel the same way?' Tears started to quickly pour down her face just as it had earlier.

When she finally reached his door she took a deep breathe and rang his door bell. She looked down at her watch, 'Midnight. Good timing Zoe' she sighed. At last Dan opened his door his hair was messy and Zoe immediately noticed this, mentally kicking herself for coming at this time of night.

Dan looked at his partner as if she was crazy for coming at this time of night but as he saw her hair and clothes soaked and her makeup running a look of concern crept across his face.

"Zoe are you okay … what happened!"

"Dan can I come in?"

"Umm sure but really what's the matter?" He asked looking more concerned each passing second.

She walked in his apartment, took a deep breath, and tried to gather all of the courage she could to say what she had to say.

"Dan I really need to tell you something and I know this isn't the right time to or anything but I just couldn't wait another day I mean you never know when its too late right?" She said going into another of her rambles that only Zoe could understand.

"Zoe your rambling … "

"Okay okay sorry … umm I'm in love with you" she blurted out.

"Do you know what your saying?" Dan asked shocked.

"Yes and just let me finish, I'm completely in love with you Dan and no matter how hard I try not to be it just doesn't work." Her voice began to shake and she began crying again.

"Zoe don't cry – " He touched her arm but she pushed him off.

"Don't, just let me finish. Now I compare all guys to you, all the guys that I meet and none of them measure up to you. Its not fair no one is as perfect as you so I cant move on Im in love with you, but maybe I don't want to move on i don't know."

"Can I talk now Zoe?" Dan asked trying to lighten up the tension that seemed to be building. Zoe shrugged. "I love you too."

"What?" Zoe looked at him not believing what he was saying. "Dan don't you don't have to say that I just wanted to come over here and tell you but don't say that because you think that's what I want to hear."

"You know what I think Zoe. I think that maybe your just too scared that someone might actually want to be with you. Well I do and im not just saying that because I think its what you want to hear, do you know how long I've watched by while you went out this all these guys who I knew were wrong for you. But I didn't say anything because I just wanted you to be happy."

"Why do you always know the right thing to say?" She tilted her head and smiled.
