Trey sighed as he ran is fingers through Noel’s hair. They had made love all night, the most intense love making session they’d ever had.
Trey gave Noel all the passion inside of him, mainly because he was angry with her. Noel took all of Trey’s pint up anger with ease.
Noel sensed Trey staring at her as she slept. She opened her eyes slowly meeting Trey’s intense glare.
Noel and Trey laid and stared at each other for a while. The room remained silent, but the tension between them rang loud and clear.
“Trey….” Noel whispered softly.
“I’m so sorry.”
Noel’s words lingered in the air.
“I know you don’t believe me…and trust me you have a right not to. I lied and I hurt you Trey…and I’m sorry. This job was supposed to put me at ease…but I feel like shit everyday…knowing that I hurt you...it fucks with me.” ?
Trey didn’t respond.
“Trey…can you talk to me?”
“I don’t have shit to say.”
“Noel…I ain’t gonna lie…I fucking hate yo ass right now. But I love you. It makes no sense how I feel right now. I want you to stay…then I want you to get your shit and leave. You got me all jacked up.”
“I’m sorry Trey.”
“Fuck Noel…look what you did to me.”
Trey got out of his bed and paced the room rubbing his temples. After almost five minutes Trey leaned against his dresser.
“If I take you back I look like a fool. If I don’t I’ll miss you like crazy and be miserable.”
“You don’t have to…I understand if you don’t want to talk to me again.”
“Noel you don’t get it. I need you.” Trey grunted as he rubbed the side of his head.
“Maybe I should just give you some space Trey…” Noel started to get dressed. ‘I think you just need some time…”
“Where are you going?” Trey raised an eyebrow.
“I’m giving you space…”
“Ain’t nobody ask you to leave Noel.”
Noel stopped what she was doing.
“What do you want me to do Trey?”
“I want you to stay. Come here…”
Noel slowly walked into Trey’s embrace. Trey held Noels face as he kissed her passionately.
“Maybe we can just be friends Trey.” Noel backed away.
“I’m just saying…maybe we’re better off…you know just being friends.”
“It’s too late. Ain’t no way in hell that I can be just friends with you.”
“Fuck am I posed to do? Just act like I don’t love you?”
“Trey...I love you too. But shit look at the situation we’re in…”
“Fuck the situation Noel! I love you and that’s the end of it. Now either you work with me on building our trust back or you walk. Which one it’s gon be?”
Trey’s dark eyes pierced through Noel…making her feel unconfortable once again.
But somehow Noel's feet lead her into Trey’s warm embrace.
