Let Me Go

Chapter Twenty: It's Too Important To Go Back To Before

"Haley! Haley, please answer the door!" Nathan pounded on the door to her home. He was coming to tell Haley that he loved her, and that he needed her, and that he wouldn't let her go.

He sighed. He'd been there for over a half hour, and she still hadn't answered. Obviously, she was avoiding him.

"I just don't understand why you're doing this, Haley," He mumbled under his breath, "I love you. Oh I love you too, Nathan. Good, now we can be happy.."

"Talking to yourself?" She asked softly, and Nathan turned.

There she was. Her blondish brown hair was blowing in the wind, and her deep brown eyes were staring him down.

"Hi." Just one word, and he fell more in love with her.

"Hi." He replied.

The obvious tension and awkwardness filled the air.

"I was leaving to go on vacation."

"I thought you were just avoiding me."

"I was." They both laughed.

"I have to talk to you."

"Let me go first. Jake came to see me before I left. At the airport."

"Damn, that's kind of hard to beat."

Haley laughed. "He came to tell me that he was letting me go. That he wanted me to be with you, because he knew that you were the one I loved."

Nathan swallowed. "And that's true? That you love me?"

"You know it is."

"Yeah, I do. And I feel the same way."

"Nathan, I've liked you since we were kids, and then I don't know what happened. I just sort of, fell for you. And now, I'm madly in love with you, and up until now, I've been afraid to feel that way, and I've been thinking about what everyone around us would think. I've been thinking about everyone else, except me. That's where I went wrong. I want you, and I love you more after every annoying or cute thing that you do!" She was crying now.

"Hales, don't cry."

"Haven't you ever cried when you were happy?" She smiled, taking a step forward. He shrugged.

"Nathan, I want to be with you, and it could be hard, and really scary, but I really, really love you. And love withstand all obstacles, right?"

"You don't know how long I've been wishing you'd say that. Haley, I love you too. And this may be really cheesy or corny or whatever, but I want to spend the rest of my life with you."

Haley giggled. Nathan took a step forward, grabbing her hands. "Is something about that funny?"

She shook her head. "No, it's just so real. I've imagined this a million times before, but now it's real."

He nodded, leaning down and kissing her lips. Their lips moved against each other perfectly, and it was like they just fit. It was definitely a picture perfect moment.

She pulled away. "You're amazing."

"You're beautiful."

She leaned in for a hug, and he held her tightly in his arms. They shared another kiss, this one more powerful.

They allowed their tongues to play with the others, and Nathan was basically supporting Haley, who was leaning back into his arms.

"Nathan," She pulled away again, "Make love to me."

He nodded, lifting her up. She wrapped her legs around his waist , and he reached into her pocket for her key, slipping it into the door, and then kicking it shut.

Stopping, he put her down and kissed her once more. She helped him out of his shirt , and he took off her sweater, before picking her up once more, and carrying her up the stairs.

They made it to her bedroom, and the two collapsed onto her bed, kissing. He helped her out of her long skirt , and she pulled down his pants for him.

Nathan unclasped Haley's bra, and she looked up at him nervously.

"Are you okay?" He asked her tentatively.

She nodded, and they continued kissing. Nathan slowly pulled off his boxers, and Haley's eyes widened as she looked at his member.

"That's huge." She commented, and he chuckled.


She took a deep breath, before completely removing her underwear and bra.

He looked over her body, and she was nervous. But he was in awe. She was absolutely beautiful.

"I promise I won't hurt you, Haley." "I know you won't." She smiled.

And so they began. Carefully, he moved inside her, and she whimpered softly.

"Am I hurting you?" He asked cautiously.

"No." She cried, grabbing his hand.

They held hands throughout the entire process, just staring in each other's eyes.

Afterwards, they collapsed besides each other, holding each other tightly.

"I love you." She told him quietly, brushing her fingers over his face.

"I love you too."

"I never what this moment to end. I want to remember it forever."

"You will." Nathan promised, kissing her softly.

"I'm so glad you didn't let me go. That you didn't just forget me and move on."

"I'd kill myself before I did that. Wow," Nathan sighed, "I feel like I'm dreaming. You're really here, right?"

"Only if you're really here."

"I'm all here, Baby."

"Just promise me one thing okay?"


"Promise me you'll never let me go."

"I promise."
