Let me introduce myself my name is Rèmi Albert I am French, I am a college guy who likes partying and hanging out with friends.
I love gardening too, I love every kind of flowers specially roses, girls find me attractive because they think I'm a bad boy.
I just can't understand girls I have no idea why they like bad boys , I mean I thought every decent girl liked a gentleman.
And if you wonder I'm a bad boy I'm not. it's just that I wear casually and I have tattoos covering my huge arms.
Tattoos of French kissing and all.
I work in a restaurant with one of my friends Ashley.
"What are you daydreaming about?" Ashley asked.
"I was just admiring myself " i say and smirk at her, She just rolls her eyes and stares at a guy and a girl sitting and talking,They have probably just came .
"I got it " I say and walk towards them, as I get closer to them I have a feeling that I know the guy, they're not french for sure, but who is this guy?
"....How many times do i have to tell you this?" The girl rolls her eyes and blushes when he catches the guy staring at her, smirking.
"Tell me as much as you want, I am not gonna change my mind" The guy teases her, I clear my thraot to get their attention, which works.
"What can I get you guys?" I ask.
Just as the guy looks at me , My jaw drops open and I grin like a crazy.
Richard narrows his eyes, as he stares at me, and I know he is probably thinking ' where the helll have i seen this asshole' the girl he is with stares back and forth between us.
"Rèmi? long time no see " Richard says and smiles like the idiot he is.
Me and Richard has been friends back when his parents came visit Paris, and they brought Richard along with them. We have grown to really like each other. But we havent heard from each other for so long.
"Yeah bro" I agreed. Richard stared at her friend and snd smiled at her, that little gesture made me think twice of what i was thinking of her, I thought she was just another girl, you know, who he sleeps with.
But the way Richard was staring at her proved me wrong.
" So... Who is this lovely lady?" I couldn't help but ask. Richard raised his right brow and i know, he knew what i was thinking of.
" This is my wife, Kristen. Kristen baby, this is Rèmi an old friend of mine." Richard smiled warmly at Kristen as he introduced us to each other, I couldn't help but wonder how in the world Richard ended up getting married to a pretty girl like Kristen?!
He didn't even believe in marriage.
Kristen shifted in he seat uncomfortably when Richard called her baby, guess she is not into public-
"It's nice to meet you" Kristen says, and smiles warmly, her voice is soft and she seems very friendly.
"It's nice to meet you too" I say and smile back at her, then I stare at Richard and smirk.
"I thought you thought love is for weak people" I say. Richard's smile vanishes but a smirk soon takes it's place.
"yeah " he mumbles and holds Kristen's hands in his.
Kristen stared at Richard nervously and Richard stared back at Kristen as if she's the only girl present in this universe.
" So, are you still single?" Richard asks, with one eyebrow raised and he is biting his lower lip, his question caught me off guard and I am alittle offended by it but i recover quickly and smile at my stupid friend.
" yeah i am "
"Oh! well I hope you find the right girl" Richard says and smiles politely, before staring at Kristin.
" Thanks! So what do you guys like to eat?"
Richard stares at Kristin again, and asks her what she wants , can you believe it? Richard out of all people is being caring and romantic to a girl.
This is so weird!
I write down their order and leave the couple alone, but not before i stare at Kristin for a couple of seconds, She is biting her lower lip, and she's frowning.
I smile to myself as I realize she's really cute, and different than the other girls Richard has been sleeping with,no wonder Richard lioves her this much.
But I still can't believe Richard has a wife he's married , and to an innocent girl, not to the kind of girl he has being dreaming of.
Life is so weird. And Richard is so mysterious, you never know what he is thinking of.
I wonder if he truly loves Kristin or is using her.. I shake my head as I remember the way Richard was staring at Kristin and how his eyes twinkled whenever he was talking to her.
How the hell did this happen?!!
"Rèmi!" I hear someone calling my name, and I am sure this is not the first time Ashley has being trying to get my attention.
"yeah" I say .
"Who were those people?" Ashley asks, her mouth forms an 'O' shape and I wonder why I notice she's staring at Richard and Kristin, and I am hundred percent sure she is gawking at Richard.
He has always been the center of attention, and it was wearing me out. But right now I feel jealous, and sad.
Jealous because even Ashley is affected by Richard's charm, and sad because she doesn't have any idea how i fee about her.
I sigh and stare at her beautiful face.
"what? " Ashley says when she catches me staring at her.
"Nothing" I mumble andlook away.
She just smiles sadly at me and says something i can't quite hear.
"I am sorry I didn't hear you , what were you saying ?" I ask politely.
Ashley rolls her eyes and stares at me again, she's concerned it's written all over her face.
" Stop being formal you idiot. I said I don't like it when you're frowning, you've been doing it a lot lately"
"Oh...umm.. I was just thinking.."
"Something important .."
After I take Richard and Kristin's food to them I leave them by themselves and force Ashley to watch a movie with me, at first she denies but thanks to my convincing skills I convince her to watch it with me.
So here we are sitting side by side, watching a romantic movie, which was Ashley's choice.
She is beaming and clapping because the movie characters are kissing.
The girl from the movie looks like Kristin, Richard's wife.
I shake my head and smile to myself, no matter how much I tried, I can't erase the thought that Kristin does not love Richard back.
And I am hundred percent positive.
Kristin lets go of my hand after we walk out of the restaurant.
I was very offeneded but I stay quite.
"What was that all about?" Kristin asks,a little bit harshly. I was taken aback by what she did and said and I was very confused to be honest.
" What are you talking about? I am very surprised that my voice sounded normal and seemed as if I was very confident.
" You were holding my hand the entire time, and you even acted as if you love me in front of your friend"
I am a little hurt by what she said, but I gotta admit that she's right, it's not right to hold her hand without her permission, and I was acting like I loved her because no matter how much close me and Rèmi are. I still don't want him to find out about our secret.
It's just between me and Kristin and no one else.
sighing, I rub my cheek and stare at Kristin, her eyes are staring at me intensly, telling me thousand words and they're full of many mixed emotions, I can't tell.
I love Kristin so much, and I don't want her to get hurt at all, the thought of telling her how much I love and confessing my deep feelings have crossed my mind several times but I just can't tell her because of many reasons.
If Kristin knows about my feelings, the three of us will get hurt.
"Answer me Richard" Kristin says in a commanding voice, which interrupts my daydreaming.
"I am very sorry Kristin, I know I wasn't supposed to lay a finger on you and touch you at all, but I didn't want Rèmi to find out about our secret... That's... why I acted I love you" That's why i showed my love to you.
Kristin's eyes soften when she heard me, which made me relax, thank god she understands.
"I.. I am sorry for snapping at you, but I don't want you to take advantage of me" She said honestly.
" I am sorry I didn't mean to" I say quietly without looking at her.
"Next time don't touch me without my permission okay?"
I smile , and stare at her pretty eyes, She is just so impossible. And I am glad she is not like other bitches who wants to get into my pants.
What am i thinking? Of course she is different she is Kristin!
"Okay, I won't " I promise.
She smiled sweetly and then we talked about what to do for the rest of the day.
We came up to many conclusions, but we didn't like any of it, finally an idea pops into my head.
"I have an idea "
"What is it?" Kristin asked as she looked at me, She looked very bored ,and disappointed because we couldn't think of any fun thing to do.
"How about we go watch the entire city on top of the Eiffel tower ?" I suggest and smile at the idea, it would be romantic. suddenly my smile fades when i remember that this is one sided love.
You know what's good about one sided love? They say no matter how sweet love is it hurts people in the end, or no matter how bitter love is it will still be bitter for both of the lovers, which means both of them suffer, but in one sided love, only the lover suffers which is a good think , don't you think?
And in my case, I am the one suffering, and I feel good about it, I am totally okay with it as long as Kristin doesn't suffer and as long as she is happy.
"Why are you frowning?" Kristin's voice shows that she is curious and concerned and she is frowning too, I smile immediately in order to wipe that frown of her forehead.
"It's just that I am tired "
"Oh" She smiled .
"You didn't answer my question" I sing and raise my eyebrow like the cocky Richard I used to be.
Yes you heard me right, I USED TO BE.
"What question?" She asked
"Do you wanna go watch the entire city-"
"I did answer your question in fact" Kristin interrupted me and crossed her arms over her chest.
"Uh.. Did you?" Did she?!
"Yeah, I said that's a good idea, guess you were daydreaming" She smiled as she said the last part, why do I have a feeling that She was teasing me.
"Uh..Are you teasing me Kristin?" I raise my right brow , She just chuckles and shakes her head amusedly.
"I thought you were daydreaming about the girls"
"The...GIRLS.. you know..."
"No I don't , which girls?"
"The girls you sleep with?!"
"Oh" I don't utter a word after that, She still thinks I am sleeping around, but she is way wrong, If only she knows how much I have changed.
"I don't sleep around anymore" I mumble, and look away, Kristin sighes, and doesn't say anything afterwards, She looks away too, and I guess we are both in our own worlds, I don't know what she is thinking of, more importantly, I don't know what she thinks of me.
Does she believe me? or maybe not? I don't know what to think, in all honesty I want her to believe me, because I have quit my old habits, and it means a lot to me, and I just wish maybe just maybe it means something to her too.
But I gotta remind myself, that I shouldn't be selfish, I am doing all these things just for her, and I will never stop doing them for her.
What a love story I have!
We stay silent the entire way to the Eiffel tower, We are a few meters away from it when suddenly Kristin gasps, I stare at her shocked face and chuckle .
"This is awesome, it's amazing" She whispers, but I can hear her, and I listen to her breathing silently and she is about to dance with joy,I am glad I brought her here .
"Let's go" I say and walk towards Eiffel tower, I hear her footsteps as she follows me, and I don't need to turn around to knwo what she is doing because I am perfectly sure, she is gawking at her dream place.
People are taking photos, hanging out with friends, and laughing together, there even couples kissing in front of the tower.
But thankfully it's not that much crowded so me and Kristin arrive at the second floor of the Eiffel tower easily, it's about to get dark when we finally arrive at the second floor, People are getting bored and are about to leave.
As for Kristin, well she is looking at sunset witha a smile on her face,
Her hair is messy, and she is not wearing any make up, she looks pure and very pretty.
At this moment there are lots of things I wanna say to her and I wanna touch her hair, and caress her cheeks and probably just kiss her cheeks, I also wanna touch her soft lips and maybe taste it-
Whoa whoa Richard stop it. I didn't know I could be that cheesy, but hey I love her, and it's just normal to think about those things when you love someone right.
I sigh and mentally slap myself, of course it's not normal, my love is not normal, and our relationship is not normal at all.
As the night comes and it gets completely dark,me and Kristin decide to go home, so we walk slowly down the tower, that amazing smile of hers has never left her face, and I feel great .
We wait for Scott to come and pick us, even though we are very tired from the long day, but Kristin is still staring out the car and she is admiring the beauty of the city.
I can't blame her, it's so different from back at home.
I smile to myself and bury my face between my hands, God I am so tired,I just wanna go home and sleep for 100 hours, I haven't slept well last night, and don't even ask me.
Suddenly I remmeber my old friend Rèmi , I am glad we saw each other again,he hasn't changed a bit.
"We are here sir" Scott's voice interrupts my thoughts .
"Thank you Scott' I smile at him and get out of the car, Kristin thanks Scott politely and walks with me towards the front door.
I lay on the couch and close my eyes, I wasn't aware of my surroundings guess I was about to falla sleep, when suddenly a very familiar hand caresses my chin.
I open my eyes and stare at my mom smiling warmly at me.
I stand up abruptly, and stare at my mom, I am very shocked to see her, and I feel alittle bit disappointed because I was thinking that maybe it was Kristin touching me, and I was also very disappointed because I wanted to be alone with me wife.
"Mom what are you doing here?"
My mom chuckles and raises her eyebrows "Aren't you happy to see me?"
"I am, it's just that I thought it's just the two of us, I mean me and Kristin "
My mom smiles and I think I know what she is thinking of, but I don't care, I wish it was just the two of us, it's our honeymoon after all.
"Me and your father wanted to have a party and invite all our french friends"
Oh.My.God. So it's not just my mother, my father is also here, I wonder where is he, and where is Kristin?
" Oh, so you're here because it's one of your usual parties .."
My mother sighs and smiles at me" Son, it's not just a party , and I know you wanted to be alone with Kristin" her smile widens and she holds my hand and gives it a squeeze.
" But we wanted to make you guys happy, and this party if for you and Kristin"
"We want to celebrate your marriage "
Oh no! this means more acting and Kristin won't like it.ns 188.8.131.52da2
