And finally the last chapter. I am so happy that it has an end... :)

And finally the last chapter. I am so happy that it has an end... :) FIVE MONTHS LATER:

Love. Some say it conquers all. It can be the feeling that lifts you up or leaves you feeling down. It can be passionate between two lovers or a parents’ love towards their children. Can a friendship turn to a love?
And a child... To some it may be blessing to some curse. Fathers can leave and never look back, but mothers are left to cope with their new duties by themselves. But in a loving family it’s different. You have to wake up in the night to feed your new-born, but you know even if it gets difficult there will always be someone to count on. And at the end you will see the result of your unconditional love – your beautiful child. Sharlotte's POV:

It was my first day back at the city and I already missed the country side. I guess month away has taken its' tool on me. So instead of breathing the polluted air in the centre I went to one of the parks at the edge of city and smelled flowers that grows so close it’s hard not to step on them.The sun was slowly rising as I raised my head to study the park.
Only one couple was sitting on a white bench on the other side of the park. The rest of it was quiet and free for me to take a walk. Now I understood that days alone had been very important for me. The problems I had left in this city now seemed so far. Little did I know that this day would bring them back. I should have felt it in my heart. That something will go wrong and my mind’s peace would be disturbed. I should have just stayed at my apartment I was renting in the city centre. Then none of these feelings would have bubbled up. At least I shouldn’t had looked at that happy couple closer. Because, when I did it, my heart sank. Like the Titanic crushing on that cursed iceberg. For some time I forgot how to breathe. I turned away and slide down to the ground behind a tree. Everything around me smelled so nice. I had to feel good, but I didn’t. Flowers brushed my legs and butterflies showed their majestic wings. All these months I thought I was over this, but now seeing him with someone else... with a child. It was like my heart had been ripped out again and torn to many pieces. And then it got to me. She was the girl who had been with him those five months ago. „A fool.” I whispered to myself.
I thought I heard footsteps. My heart started racing again. Had they seen me? Everything had happened so fast that night. I moved on from Matthew to be with Peter. But then.. Month later I understood that he wasn’t meant for me. I got over him quickly and I thought I had gotten over Matthew too. I mean, I have never loved him anyway...
„Sharlotte?” I heard a sweet voice and goose bumps rose up my skin.
I rose to my feet and looked at him afraid. Afraid that I would do something stupid. He was too close to me and I had been alone for too long. He had been my best friend for like forever. And now we hadn’t talked for months not to mention we ended on bad terms.
„I thought it was you.” He smiled, no he laughed.
„Why are you laughing?” I asked confused.
“Oh, I haven’t seen you for a while. And you are hiding from me behind a tree.” He smirked.
“I wasn’t hiding from you but form the sun.” I justified myself. I couldn’t let him laugh at me when all I wanted to do was to slap him.
But it wasn’t right. I know it isn’t. Although he chose to ignore me I could have said no to Peter and then we could have stayed friends. But I wasn’t sure he would have liked that. It looked like he had hated me then.
I looked at his girlfriend again. She was so perfect. And now when she was pregnant she was glowing. But her belly looked big. More than five months big. How long have he been dating her? And when I gave him the kiss on his cheek he had belonged to another woman. The thought of that made me sick. I had almost ruined a relationship. “So how long have you two been together?” I asked him trying to keep myself together.
“Who?” He asked confused.
“You and Camilla. Her belly looks pretty big.” I said remembering how warm had been his hug and his words so cold that last time. “So when I kissed you on the cheek you were already together?”
“Sharlotte, what are you talking about?” He smiled innocently.
“You really don’t want to tell me? Well, I am going to go and say ‘hi’ to your girlfriend. It would only be polite.” I said giving him a cold smile.
“Hello. I don’t know if you remember me, but I am…” I started to say, but she cut me off.
“Sharlotte, the girl who ruined my relationship.” Her smile was still sweet.
“I…I didn’t know.” I answered.
What had I done? They looked like a loving couple. What could I have done?
“Yes, I know. Matthew already told me. It was not your fault. Peter lied to you.” She said. “As well to me and other girls. But I have forgiven to him and to you. “
“Wait, you knew Peter?” I still was confused. What was happening here?
“Of course I knew him. I knew him very well. He was my boyfriend.” She said like it was nothing.
And now she has Matthew. So she cheated on Peter with Matthew? I stood there waiting for explanation. Had I been the reason she left Peter?
“I don’t get it.” I managed to say.
“Camille, please don’t.” I heard Matthew say. He sounded worried or nervous. I admit it was not what I had been expecting.
She smiled at him and the looked at me again, studied my face. She put her hands on her swollen belly and looked like she was remembering something bitter.
“Sweety, you still don’t understand? Let me make this clear for you. This belly is from your lover Peter. And that great guy who stands behind you is the best thing that has happened to me since him. He has helped me in every way he could. Except, he could never get rid of the thought of you. “ She smiled and went to Matthew.
I could feel his stare on my back, but I couldn't make myself turn.
Only when Camille hugged him goodbye, I turned to them.
“Be a man and tell that girl everything. It has been too long for you. You tried but didn’t succeed. Now try something else – tell the truth.” She told him before she went. “Goodbye, sweety, see you soon. “ She winked as she made her way to the exit.
My heart thumped. She wasn’t her girlfriend. Never had been. So I had made a big mistake. I had ruined everything.
I could see her leaving. And then my eyes fixated on him. The man who I had been crazy over. I had liked him when he was a nerdy teen and liked him even now when he had grown into a handsome man.
“I didn’t know. I thought she was your girlfriend.” I explained.
“I hadn’t thought about that. It all now seems more logical.” He said moving closer to me.
Only a few inches were between us. This was the closest he had been to me for the past five months.
He touched my arm and sent me shivering under his touch.
“You had been ignoring me for two weeks. The weeks I had needed you the most. I lost everything those weeks and gained only one piece of knowledge. And then you showed up with a girl. A girl who looked like an angel.” I took a slow breath to calm myself. “And you ignored me there too. I tried to catch your glance but I didn’t succeed. So I thought she was your girlfriend.”
“But we were only friends. We still are friends. You had no right to get angry at me. Even though she has never been my girlfriend and never will be. She is with Peter now.”
“Friends?” I repeated.
“Yes. You said yourself so. “ He looked sad. “I saw you kissing Peter that night. I wanted to run after you and bring you back, but I just couldn’t. Seeing you with him made me… “ He didn’t finish.
I remembered how I wanted Matthew to see us. Now I understood how wrong I was. I wanted Matthew to be the one who I kissed.
“It makes you what?” I asked suspicious.
“Angry. Jealous. I… I don’t want to be friends anymore.” He said and already started to turn around to go away.
And then I let my body do what it wanted to for so long. I finally kissed Matthew. He was confused. He hadn’t expected that. His lips were soft and warm. This one kiss was better than all the kisses from Peter together. I felt like I could fly. My heart skipped a beat and I could already feel the urge to get my hands on him. But I pulled back drunk from his kiss.
“I don’t want to be friends anymore too.” I smiled to him.
He had responded to my kiss and now I felt like I could do anything.
His smile. Oh how I had missed it! But this one was even better. There was no more sadness in his eyes. I could see only love. Love that lifts you up.
“So what should we do about it?” He asked flirting with me.
Something I had never experienced. Camille said he couldn’t get me out of his head. Well, I couldn’t stop loving him.
“You know, I like you for a very long time..” I said shyly.
“Let’s not waste any more time.” He smiled and took me in a kiss again.
Well, everything was finally starting to settle down. I had a boyfriend who couldn’t keep his hands off me. We even moved in together in some other city. We didn’t want to escape past, he just wanted to keep me away from my ‘best friend’ who had lit my house up. Still I hope she would meet someone who would lift her up like Matthew does to me.
But ours’ wasn’t the only good part of the story. Peter had changed too. This time for real. And who had done that If not Camille? There was something in that woman… When he looked at her, everyone could see the spark in his eyes. Some says it’s the baby who made him change. It had to be the feeling of family. Real family, who loves him. And he wouldn’t leave his child like his parents did. No love only money. He would have a family everyone would be proud off. And he would make his wife (yes, wife) the happiest woman in the world.
Thank you for reading. This story has finally come to an end. Hope you liked it. :)
