Hi all, sorry for the wait but only one of you actually gave me an idea for this story so thank you to that person and I'll thank everyone else properly at the end of the chapter.

I'm sorry if this is a bad chapter. Its hard to write a story where you have NO idea where its going. Hopefully after I read Endure I'll have more ideas :)

Anyhow, enjoy the chapter :)

It turns out, just about everything from my room was in Ameile's car, but luckily for us there wasn't that much so it didn't take long to carry it up to the lounge room. After we finish Ameile turns around and says;

"Hey, do you want to go down to the park or something?"

"I'd love to but I wouldn't want Astley waking up and then freaking out because I'm not here, I'm sorry" I say, feeling guilty because I don't want to leave him here by himself.

"Oh, no don't worry about it" she says while waving her hands and begins to back away "I've got other stuff to do anyway, I'll probably see you tomorrow or something"

"Oh okay, I'll see you tomorrow then" I say while watching her walk away.

I eventually end up going through some of the boxes and find some new clothes. After all the ones I was wearing I had worn while saving nick and had slept in as well, so lets just say they were a little bit dirty.

I found a shower and had a nice long one. After I got out I went back to the kitchen and started searching through the cupboard only to have Astley come up and hug me from behind and start kissing my neck.

"I see you're awake" I sigh and arch my neck out "How are you feeling now?"

"Mhm, better now that I'm with you" he breathes "So I was thinking, maybe I could show you around New York. You know see the sights and have some fun". I turn around and say;

"Mhm, but that depends, we could stay here and finish what we started" I say with a smirk "Or we could go and get some more food seeing there's nothing in the cupboard and have a look at some sights. After-all this is my first time in New York"

"As much as I'd rather do the first option"Astley laughs "I guess we better go some food and show you around the house"

With that, Astley grabbed his keys and asked me to follow him.


It turns out there was an elevator what lead down to the garage what then opened up to an ally way, what was just off the side of the park. Who knew?

We ended up going to a local supermarket and getting a bunch of random grocery and ending up back up at the house not even an hour later.

"So now we've got some decent food, how about I show you round the house?" Astley asks while grabbing my hand.

"Sure, it will be nice to actually know where everything is here" I joke and follow him around the house... or mansion I should say.

It turns out there's eight bedrooms all with the own bathrooms, a ballroom with a massive kitchen going off the side of it, a reasonable sized library, a games room, a dining room with a lounge room going off it and another kitchen going off that. It was insanity. I swear. Astley finishes off the tour by showing me his room what's conveniently connected to my room as well.

We slowly wonder in to his room and start talking about random stuff and I start to realise how Nick never actually took the time to do this type of stuff. He was always worrying about my safety and acting like I couldn't even walk in a straight line without hurting my self. I started to notice how Astley always listened to what I had to say and what I wanted. I guess I started to realise that I might actually love Astley and Nick and I maybe weren't meant to be. Of course during my little reminiscing session I completely tuned out Astley, who was now asking if I was okay and calling out my name;

"Zara? Are you okay? Zara?" Astley asks

"Hmm, Yeah? Sorry I completely spaced" I reply guiltily

"Its fine, I was wondering if you wanted to watch a movie or something?" He laughs

"Oh yeah, sure. You choose" I smile and go to sit down on the couch what was in his room. After he picked a movie we both settled down on the couch with him sitting up and me sort of laying on his chest. He ended up picking a really sweet and romantic comedy.

During the movie I kept thinking over and over about what I was thinking about earlier. Of course again I didn't notice that Astley noticed that I spaced out again.

"Hey, what's wrong? You seem to have something on your mind again" He asks with worry filling his voice.

" Uh h, Astley, I think I might love you" I say while blushing and looking away. The next thing I know Astley lifts my chin up and kisses me passionately on the lips.

"You have no idea how long I've waited for you to say that" he says breathlessly with a smile on his face.

"Good to know, I'm sorry I made you wait so long" I reply and kiss him back with just as much passion.

"Don't worry about it. All that matters is now" he says while kissing me again and tightens his arms back around me again.
