Zack looked at Eve in shock. Did he just hear her correctly? She was his biggest fan? Zack shook his head in confusion. This didn't make any sense, and as he stood here, he could feel his heart rate begin in increase as all of his old feelings for Eve had suddenly started to all rush back to him at once.
"Y-You... You're my number one fan?" The Long Island Iced Z asked, stumbling over his own words. He nervously rubbed the back of his neck. Eve was so beautiful, and it had been forever since he last saw her. He forgot how much he had missed her, until now. Eve nodded, unable to look Zack in the eye.
"Listen, I know this is a surprise to you, and you probably must hate me after how I treated you..." She kept rambling, the whole time feeling like this was a bad idea. She should have never made Zack come here. Zack shook his head, gazing at Eve as her took her hand and sat down at the table with her.
"I... I'm glad it was you," He softly admitted. "The truth is... I've missed you, Eve. I've missed you ever since you left, and I wish you never did... I know you're sorry for what you put me through, and it's okay, because I forgive you. I forgive you, because I'm crazy about you, and I still have feelings for you. They never went away." Zack added. Eve was at a loss for words as she stared at Zack, while he kept talking. "Those letters, they kept me going. I was about to give up, but then that very first letter you sent helped me become stronger. Did you mean what you said in all those letters Eve?" He asked. Eve nodded weakly as she blinked away some tears, a lump in her throat.
"I meant what I said in every single one of those letters, Zack... I... I've always wanted to say all of those things to you... I just couldn't... Not face to face." She whispered.
Zack nodded in understandment, but he was happy to know that Eve was telling the truth. He rubbed the top of her hand in comfort.
"Eve, will you look at me?" He asked and Eve obliged, turning her head so she could meet his gentle gaze. "I'm so glad you wrote me those letters. But why did you write them? Was it to get closure? Or do you still... Have... Feelings for me?" Zack asked slowly. Eve took a deep breath, her heart was pounding out of her chest.
"I... I still have feelings for you, Zack. You're so sweet, so caring, so kind to everyone you meet. Even people you don't know. You're so perfect, Zack, and your smile makes me heart melt. Your laugh... I love hearing you laugh, you don't do it as often as you should, but it's cute when you do. Any girl would be lucky to have you, Zack. I just hope you know that." She rambled on.
"Eve, I love you. You're perfect. We can put the past behind us and start over." Zack said, with one of his cheesy grins on his face. "I'll be your number one fan too." Eve melted. Zack was such a sweetheart all the time.
"I'd really like that, Zack. It sounds perfect." She whispered. "So where do we go from here?" Eve asked. Zack thought for a moment then got an idea.
"I could take you on a date, you know, fresh start and all." He suggested. Eve nodded.
"I'd love that, Zack. It sounds perfect." She whispered softly. "I'm so sorry for everything I put you through. I wish it never happened. I wanna take it back." Zack shook his head. Despite what people thought of Eve, she was actually a really cool girl, with a big heart. She was just afraid to let people in, and let someone love her the way she was supposed to be loved. Eve was always with losers, and cheaters. But she knew Zack was different, and that's why she hurt him. She wanted to hurt him before he hurt her.
"I told you, the past is behind us. No need to be upset anymore." He soothed. Eve smiled. Zack was so sweet. "How about the beach?"
"I love the beach!" Eve said excitedly, causing Zack to chuckle.
"So you're all ready to go then?" Zack asked, just wanting to go out and be seen with this beautiful girl.
"Yeah! Lets go!" She grinned excitedly as she stood up from her chair, took him by the hand, and walked to his truck. Zack turned to goo the moment her hand came in contact with his. How could one person have that much power over another being? Simple, it was love. Eve climbed into the passenger side of his truck, and turned on some Taylor Swift, knowing she was one of his favorites. Zack grinned.
"I remembered that she was one of your favorites." Eve admitted as Zack started to drive. Zack grinned again.
"What else do you remember? I remember how beautiful you are, but I could never forget that." He said softly, taking her hand into his own. Eve looked away smiling, a slight blush creeping up on her cheeks...
"I remember that you're a good singer, and you're funny, and cute, and that you're perfect for me." She admitted. Zack smiled. Eve was cute when she blushed.
"Do you remember the on-screen kissed we shared?" He asked and Eve nodded.
"Best day of my life..." She revealed with a smile. Zack smiled his head cocked to the side.
"Really?" He asked. "Mine too." He admitted as he squeezed Eve's hand. Soon, the newly reunited couple arrived at the beach, and Eve was in bliss. Who knew that writing those letters would actually work?
"Zack?" She asked as the two walked hand in hand down the beach.
"I love you." Eve told him proudly.
"I love you too Eve." He said, and the two then shared a righteous kiss.
