Chapter 13.

Hope you enjoy! :)
"I said I have a flat tire. The car is in the middle of the road, I can't move it to a safe spot, this bloody road is so narrow." Iñigo was cradling his phone between his ear and shoulder, at the same time, he was on the ground, bending over to loosen the lug nuts of a wheel.

"What? It's choppy." Brenda aksed on the other line.
Dammit! The phone signal was so bad. He went to the rear of his car and turned on the speaker of his phone. He extended his arms up to the sky trying to get a better signal. "Hello Brenda? Can you hear me now?" He almost yelled.

"I heard you, you had an accident? And? The car is wrecked?" Brenda's high pitched voice disrupted the stillness of the night. "Why can't you move? Are you trapped inside the car? What do you mean bloody? Are you bleeding?"

"What are you talking about? I'm fine. There's no accident. I have a flat tire. I'm changing it now. I'll be there in less than an hour. Anyway, I already had dinner." Iñigo groaned.
There was a silence on the other line.

"Brenda? Are yo still there?"

"Hello?....(choppy)...Iñigo? Yes,yes,...(choppy)...Where are you?"

"Before the broken bridge, about ten minutes driver to the hotel."

"Okay, just hang on. I'll call you back...(choppy)...relax and don't move...(choppy)... to stop the bleeding. Wait there." Then she hung up the phone.

Bleeding? What bleeding? He shook his head and ignored what he'd heard. He settled back to the place where Brenda's call interrupted him. He continued removing the flat tire with his strong hands by pulling it straight out and off the axle.
----------

"Did you ask him where he is?"

"Yes, he's at the broken bridge."

"Oh God, is that far from here? We have to go to Iñigo now! He could be dying." Chloe was agitated and freaked out.
"About ten to fifteen minutes drive from her." Brenda answered calmly. "Come on, I'll drive you there."

"Don't you think we should call 911?" Martin asked them. The two girls looked at each other.

"Yes, of course!" Chloe said.

"I'll call the county sheriff department, my uncle works there." Brenda took her phone and pressed a number.
"Yes thanks, I'll call Engr. Valdez to inform him what happened." Chloe pressed a number on her phone. She was pacing back and forth.

"He's not answering his phone. Come on, let's go."

"Chloe, wait. Brenda is calling the police now. They will take care of everything. All we have to do is wait here." Martin said, trying to sound reasonable.
"No, I can't just wait here, I'll go insane! I have to see him, he's hurt... bleeding... dying....ohh." She started crying, and her shoulders shook as she sobbed.

Martin looked at her with pity. She was definitely still in love with Iñigo. Too many times she have tried to deny it, convincing herself that she had moved on. He knew that she was not completely happy with him. Every time she smiles, it never reached her eyes.

"You still love him." He said to her.

She gave him a solemn nod and continued crying. "I'm sorry, I can't help it, I tried... so hard to forget him, but.... I... I just can't. I'm so sorry Martin, please... forgive me."
"Shh... It's okay. It hurts, but God knows I'm trying to understand." He was so devastated that she finally admitted it. The pain was so deep, just like the pain he experienced in the past with his ex. He was miserable before and now, it happened again. But he knew, he had to let Chloe go, for her to follow her heart. For her to be completely happy.

"Thank you." She almost whispered.

"Tell him what you feel, before it's too late." He touched her shoulders and squeezed it with assurance. "Come on, let's go."
-------------

Iñigo was putting the flat tire in the car's trunk when he heard the noise of a siren approaching, coming from an ambulance. There must be an emergency, probably an accident. He wondered.

He was so surprised to see two police cars and an ambulance vehicle stopped in front of his car. The car lights glared so brightly on his direction blinding him that he covered his eyes with his hand. What happened? He thought.
"Good evening Sir, I'm Officer James Davis. Are you Mr. Monteiro?" One police officer approached him.

"Good evening. Yes, officer I am Iñigo Monteiro. What happened?" Iñigo said while wiping the dirt from his hands with a towel.

"We received a report that you had an accident."
"An accident?"

"Yes. Your car was wrecked and you were trapped inside, bleeding."

Iñigo groaned and realized what just happened when he saw Brenda's pink car approaching behind the police car.

"As you can see, I'm just fine officer. I just had a flat tire. I'm sure there was some sort of miscommunication."
"Yes, definitely. My niece, Brenda reported the incident." He shook his head and smiled. "I don't know what came over her to report this. She was always so sensible."

"The signal was a bit choppy when she called me awhie ago, we probably didn't understand each other. Anyway, thank you officer for your immediate response I'll make sure that you will be compensated well for this." Iñigo smilled back and shook his hand.
He saw Chloe come out from Brenda's car. She looked so beautiful as usual, no matter what she wore. An angelic face with dark long hair and a gorgeous body he would die for. She totally astounded him.

"Chloe?"

"Iñigo!"
He was so dazed when she hugged him, her arms went around his waist. Her face buried on his chest. He hugged her back, pulling her tightly in his arms. Engulfed her in his solemn embrace. The happiness he felt was so overwhelming. His heartbeat quickened and his hormones were raging wildly inside his system. They didn't know who started it first, but before they know it they were kissing deeply and hungrily, craving for each other.

A sough broke their kiss, made them aware of where of where they were, The cars started moving away, leaving them alone on the road.
"Are you okay? Are you hurt?" Chloe asked worried, touching his face, his chest and his arms.

"Of course. I'm fine." Iñigo smiled at her, giving her a questioning look.

"I thought... I thought you had an accident."
"No,no. I only had a flat tire."

"Brenda said..." Chloe started pulling away from him.

"Brenda said what?" He mimicked what she said and pulled her back in his arms, imprisoning her with his powerful arms.
"Ummm... this is a mistake...I..."

"Mistake? What do you mean with a mistake, this?" He kissed her lips again, angling his lips to deepen their kiss.

"I... I thought you were dying." She said and averted her face away from his lips.
"I am." He said teasing her and kissed her on the sensitive spot behind her ear.

"You are?" She frowned and started to get worried agan.

"Yes, I'm dying for you. I never stopped loving you Chloe. I love you so much that it hurts. Please give me a second chance to prove to you that I' worthy of your love."
She looked at his eyes and touched his cheek. He kissed the palm of her hand and rubbed it on his face. Then she tiptoed and kissed his lips toftly and he responeded.

"Is that a yes?" He asked her between the kisses.

"Umm... I'll think about it." She said.
"Then I won't stop kissing you until you say yes. Is that what you want?"

"Absolutely." She answered him with enthusiasm.

He immediately pulled her up in his arms and carried her inside in car and drove off.
--------

Brenda was driving her catering van. She was so conscious of Martin who was sitting beside her, brooding. They left together with the police officer.

"I had a girlfriend before, she had everything. Beauty and brain, very famous, and filthy rich." Martin finally broke the silence.

"Just like Chloe Petrakis, huh?"
"Yes, very much like Chloe, an heiress. That's the reason why I don't like to date heiress, they often break my heart."

She focused on her driving, and eventually said. "I'm not an heiress."

He smiled and looked at her. "Can I buy you a cup of coffe?"
