"Well, this is my place." Vittoria said, leading Bryan to the door. Bryan nodded.
"Are you TRULY alright?" he asked her, tilting his head.
"Yes, I'm—" her lying words caught in her mouth. The tears began to fall and she looked away.
But Bryan took his hand and gently wiped the tears away. "It's fine, I've been heartbroken before too. It's hard, I know, but everything will turn out in the end." He turned her to face him. "Really, Vittoria, it'll be okay." Truth shined in his eyes.
He pulled her into him and gave her a hug. Vittoria closed her eyes, flashing back to the memory when she saw Robert, after she thought he had died…
No this man is not Robert. Not Robert. Robert's gone.
She went limp, and he pulled away. He tilted her chin to make her hazel eyes reach his sea blue ones. He wiped away her tears one more time and brushed her hair out of her eyes.
Finally, out of intuition, he leaned forward and gently kissed her forehead to comfort her.
"Goodbye, Vittoria." He whispered, feeling sad already on leaving.
After walking a few paces, he whirled around. "I think you should know something though. This Robert man…well, he's missing out. I hope I'll find someone like you, and you like him."
When he got no response, his shoulders slumped and he strode to the parking lot.
Vittoria was left standing in the hallway.
He is not Robert.
But she couldn't deny she began to feel for him. And she never forget what he said to her…"I hope I find someone like you…"
She went inside her room. She began to lie down, when she noticed that the man's jacket was still around her shoulders. A hand crept into the pocket and pulled out a sheet of paper. It was a phone number with his name on it.
Shaking, she called the number and left a message, thanking him. At the end, she whispered, "I hope to see you again. I think I have found my 'someone like him' and…well, I really hope to see you soon."
That night, Vittoria fell asleep with Bryan's jacket around her.
Bryan noticed a missed call on his cell phone. He listened to his voice mail and had to give a smile of relief.
Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead
Sooo that's it! I know it's a really (really) short story...but I'm having Vittoria, Bryan and Greg in another story with my Da Vinci Code characters. I need your reviews and good ideas!
Thank you all!
