"Will? I'm home!", I said as I walked in the hotel room feeling very pleased and content with my decision when I noticed Will's bag was packed up and sitting there on the edge of the bed with no Will in sight, "What the hell?", I said to myself as I took off my jacket and headed towards the bathroom with no idea as to what was actually going on.
I could hear someone sobbing in the bathroom, "Will, is everything alright, baby?", I asked as I tried to
"Will? What's going on?", I asked as the door opened and Will came out looking like someone who's been crying for most of the day.
"I'm going back to Salem", he answered and looked down at his watch and tried to avoid any eye contact with me.
"Hun? What? Babe...What's wrong?", I asked in confusion.
"I'm sorry. It's better if I just leave and we both forget all about this...", he suggested as he brushed right passed me and picked up his travel bag and headed towards the door.
"What the hell?", I asked as I grabbed his arm and turned him towards me, "Will, What's going on?", I asked again, because I clearly had no idea what had changed between us in a matter of just a few hours.
He just stood there without saying a word, looking hurt, heart-broken even.
"Will, please! Say something? You're scaring me here. Talk to me...", I begged for him to explain, because I honestly had no idea whatsoever why he was acting this way. And to tell you the truth, it scared me.
"I gotta go", he whimpered out as he pulled away from me and walked over to the door.
"Oh no you don't!", I said to him as I ran over and pushed the door shut, "You are not leaving here until you tell me what the fuck is going on, you hear me?", I angrily said as I lifted my hand up to his face and turned his eyes towards mine, "Babe...", I tried my hardest to reach out to him, because I wasn't about to let this go until I got some answers.
He took a deep breath and curled his fists together, "Please, Sonny...Let it go", he said as I forced him away from the door and demanded an explanation.
"Will, I'm not gonna let this go until you tell me what's going on. You hear me?"
He took a deep, long agonizing breath and turned towards me and said, "When were you gonna tell me?"
"Hun? Tell you what?", I asked in confusion, still not understanding what he means.
"Don't pretend like you have no idea what I'm talking about. When were you gonna tell me?", he asked again, and I could see he was getting frustrated.
"Will, I'm gonna need you yo help me out here? I don't know what it is you want me to tell you", I pleaded to him for more information as to what the issue was between us and why the sudden change in his mood.
"Alright, fine! You're moving to L.A.?", he said as I tears started rolling down his face, "And you never even bothered to tell me", he whispered as he stood there and cried silently, "I meant nothing to you..."
"Will, I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm not moving. Why would you even think that?", I asked as I moved over towards him and tried to wrap my arms around his waist, but he pulled away before I even got the chance to explain myself to him.
"I heard you", he said his a coldly way, "Loud and clear!"
"What do you mean, you heard me?"
"You must have accidentally hit the call button on my phone, because when I answered, I could hear you in the meeting, and...", he started as his tears turned in to sobs, "You said you were moving."
"Wait? What? I never said I was moving. Will, this is a misunderstanding, babe. Please let me explain?", I asked him as he tried once again to get closer to him, but once again, he pulled away from me. Luckily, I wasn't about to give up without a fight. If I did something wrong, I at least need to know what I did, or in this case said that made him think that I was gonna leave him, because I would never leave him. Not after everything that's happened between us.
"It doesn't matter Sonny. You've already made your decision, so I guess there's nothing else left to say. I think it's better this way if I cut my losses shot. I should have know better than to go against the odds. For some crazy reason, I though you felt the same way about me."
"Will, I do feel the same way about you. You need to listen to what I have to say before you leave, please babe, I'm begging you", I said as I broke down into tears in front of him, "I love you, Will. Please...", I said as I reached out to him for comfort.
"Sonny, don't...", he whispered softly, but I didn't listen. Instead, I wrapped my arms around him tightly and held on to him for dear life.
"God, Will. I love you so much. You mean the world to me, baby. I can't lose you now when we promised each other forever, and I intend to keep my promise to you. I meant every word I said, Will. I WANT FOREVER...WITH YOU."
"But...I heard what you said on the phone. You said that you were excited about the offer and...", he stopped and took a deep breath as I interrupted him and continued.
"And what, Will? What did I say after?", I asked, because I knew exactly what I said after and it certainly wasn't that I was moving. I was beginning to wonder if Will heard the entire conversation or not, "What did I say after, Will?"
"I don't know, I hung up. I couldn't deal with hearing you tell them you were leaving me. I just...couldn't..."
"Well, you should have listened to the whole conversation before jumping to conclusions you idiot", I said as released my hold on him and turned over and walked over to the window and sighed, "Do you know how much it hurts me that you thought I would leave you after last night, Will? Do you?", I said as I ran my fingers through my hair a few times in frustration.
"I don't understand, Son", he admitted and sat on the edge of the bed, waiting for my answer.
I was getting a little angry and frustrated with him, "Don't you get it, Will? Do you? I'm head over heels in love with you! And that's why I told them that I couldn't take the job. Maybe next time, listen to the whole conversation before accusing me of saying something I never said in the first place."
"I told them that I was excited and thankful for the offer, but there was no way I could accept it because I had something to come home to now, and that I loved him for than anything in this entire world."
"Oh Son...", he gasped as I leaned down and took both of his hands into mine.
"Will, I love you. And I'm not leaving you, ever. You're my home now. I hope you understand that. I could never give you up. Not now, not ever. Not even for this job."
"But, Son. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity", he pointed out, "What are the odds of anything like this ever happening again?"
"Will, you are my once in a lifetime opportunity and I'm not willing to go against the odds this time. Even if this, us, don't work out, I'm willing to take my chances, because I believe that us meeting was meant to be. We are meant to be, Will...", I said as I placed a kiss on both of his hands.
"Sonny...Are you sure about this? Because, I could never ask you to give up on your dreams for me", he said and I could see from his face he was feeling guilty.
"Will, you're not asking me to give up anything. This is my decision and mine alone. But just so you know, I would give up everything for you", I said as I cupped his face with my hands and pulled him closer to me, "You're worth it!"
Before he could even say another word, I closed the small gap between us and kissed him with everything I had in me.
After a few long minutes of intense "Making up" as I call it, we pulled away from each other to catch our breath, "So...", I started saying as I took his hand into mine and walked him over to the bed and sat down next to him, "I guess this was our official first fight as a couple, hun?"
"I guess so..", he said with a smile, "As a couple", he repeated after me and I could see by the look on his face that he was very pleased to hear me say those words.
"About that...", I said as I pulled out a small box from my pocket, "Do you think you might be up for a few more of those couple fights?"
He looked over at me as I handed him to small box, "Sonny, what's going on?", he asked nervously as I got up from the bed and got on one knew before him.
"Relax, babe. You look like you're about to fall over", I pointed and chuckled, "I'm not asking you to marry me if that's what you're thinking. Well, at least not today that is."
He took a deep breath, "Thank God!", he said in relief.
"I'm saving that for next week!"
He gave me and evil grin, "So, if you're not proposing marriage, then what are you asking me?"
I smiled and opened open the boy and presented him with a key, "I'm asking you to move in with me when we get home."
His eyes filled with tears instantly, "Y-you want me to move in with you?"
"I do. If you want to that is."
"Oh my God! Yes! Yes, Sonny! I would love to move in with you!", he screamed and threw himself into my arms, "I love you so much babe."
"I love you, Will."
Or maybe not...
1 month later...
"Babe? Are you coming?", he asked as I was getting the last of my things packed up to move in with him.
"One minute! I'm I'm almost ready", I screamed out to him from the other room as I was gathering the last of my things before heading out.
"Well, hurry up! The moving company is about ready to leave and leave the rest of your stuff behind", he pointed out as I hurried to grab the last of my belongings.
Just as the words left my mouth, Sonny walked in the room and leaned up against the door frame, "Oh are you now?", he said as I felt a pair of warm arms wrapping themselves around me, "I could think of a few ways to make you scream those words my love!"
"Oh is that so? I guess I'm gonna have to ask you to show me those ways when we get home.", I said as I turned over to him and placed a soft kiss onto his lips.
"You can count on it, babe. So, you ready to go?", he asked.
"Almost. Just have a few things to pick up and we're off."
"What's that?", he asked as he looked over my shoulder and picked up my magic 8 ball that I left on my dresser.
"That old thing? it's my magic 8 ball. Never leave home without one", I pointed out as I took it out of his hands and shook it a few times, "Ask a question!"
"Alright! What could I ask. Oh, how about this. Is Will gonna like the new place?", he asked and I shook it a few more times and read him the answer.
"Things are looking positive", I said and chuckled, "You see, babe. The magic 8 ball never lies."
He smiled, "Do you really believe in all that crap?"
"I use to", I admitted.
"Really? When did you stop believing?"
"When I met you", I said to him and blushed.
"Why is that if you don't mind me asking."
"Well, before I met you, I lived my life by probability."
"What do you mean by that", he curiously asked.
"What I mean is that every decision I made I based on the odds of it actually happening to me. It's probably the reason it took me so long to find the man of my dreams."
"Well, I'm glad you changed your mind about that, or I wouldn't be holding the love of my life in my arms right now."
"I love you"
"I love you to babe. You ready?", he asked as he picked up the last remaining box and headed towards the door.
"Yeah, do you mind if I take another minute?"
"Sure. I'll be waiting in the car", he said and left the room.
I turned over and picked up my magic 8 ball and decided to give it a try for old-time sake, "Alright, buddy", I said as I shook it rapidly and asked my question, "Am I ever gonna win the lottery?", I asked the circular object and waited for it to show me the answer. Once the little purple triangle popped up, I smiled and read it over, "The Odds are in your favor".
I laughed out loud and placed it back on the dresser and left it behind and walked out start my new life with Sonny.
Honestly, I didn't need a magic 8 ball anymore to tell me how my life's gonna be, or what decision I should make. Because I learned that no matter what the odds are in life, you never know what's going to happen next or who you're going to meet when you walk through those doors. Luckily for me, it was Sonny. So come to think of it, I actually did meet the man of my dreams when I walked through the doors of the new coffee shop when my odds were slim to none. How cool is that?
