Chapter 15: Wanted
"Well, that's the last box. The truck's empty." Reed said, joining Kristina, Rosalina, and Nat in Rosalina's dorm room. It was move in day at NYU and the time to say goodbye was just about here. Rosalina had said goodbye to the rest of the band members earlier that day and she had a hard time parting ways. Even though she was only an hour away from home, Rosalina wasn't exactly ready for this new change.
"I guess this is it huh?" Kristina said, her eyes starting to fill with tears. She waved her hands in front of her eyes to try and stop the tears. "I told myself I wasn't going to cry."
"I'm gonna miss you so much Kris." Rosalina said, pulling her best friend into a tight hug. "Have an incredible senior year boo; I'll be home all the time to see you. I promise, things aren't going to change between us."
"I love you." Kristina said as they pulled apart. They were both crying and they laughed when they saw each other's faces. Both of them wiped away each other's tears.
"I'll miss you shorty." Reed said with a smile, pulling Rosalina into a hug.
"I'll miss you too Reed. Take care of my girl for me, okay?" Rosalina said, pointing at him.
"I will, I promise." Reed said, grabbing Kristina's hand. "We'll let you guys have a couple minutes. Meet you downstairs bud."
"Thanks guys. Love you both." Rosalina said, blowing a kiss to Kristina and waving goodbye.
"Rosalina…" Nat started to say but he was interrupted by Rosalina pulling him into a long kiss. They broke apart and Nat started to shed some tears, causing Rosalina to start crying again.
"Things aren't gonna change Nat, I promise to you, I will not do what happened last time away. I was young and naïve then but now I'm 100% faithfully to you and only you Nat Wolff." Rosalina said, pointing her finger into her boyfriend's chest. Nat took her hands into his and kissed them.
"I know babe, I'm 100% into this relationship too. I'll see you all the time and things aren't gonna change at all. I love you and to show you that, I got you a little going away present." Nat said, pulling a ring box. He kneeled down on one knee and opened it. Rosalina's mouth dropped open.
"No no, it's not what you think, just listen to me. I got you this ring as a promise that I will never leave your side for as long as you let me stand beside you. And if that's forever, then I will be more than happy." Nat said, sliding the ring on Rosalina's finger. Their anniversary was engraved into it.
"Nat, it's beautiful, I'm never taking it off." Rosalina said, admiring the ring on her finger. Nat pulled her into a tight hug. Rosalina started to sob into his chest and Nat stroked her hair as she cried. "I'm so scared Nat."
"Rosie, you're gonna be just fine here." Nat said, kissing her forehead. "I've got to leave you though, you can do this babe."
"I love you so much Nat Wolff." Rosalina said, pulling Nat in for one last kiss.
"I love you more Rosalina Tai." Nat said, walking towards the door. He blew her one last kiss and she caught it, blowing one back to him. Nat had to force himself to leave that day, one of the hardest things he'd ever done. Rosalina sat down at her desk, which overlooked a fountain in the courtyard. She pulled a picture frame out of a box and realized it wasn't one she'd seen before. She set it down in front of her and saw that Nat must have slipped it in there. It had two pictures in it; one of them when the band just started. They had their arms wrapped around each other and looked as happy as little kids could be. The next one was of them at the Hunter Hayes concert. Nat's arms were wrapped around Rosalina from behind and he was kissing her cheek. They both look happier than ever because they were. Engraved in the bottom of the frame was, "I wanna make you feel wanted." Rosalina smiled and hugged the frame close because she finally felt what she'd been waiting so long for. She finally felt wanted.
