True colours show

Eve knocked on nto's little bachelorette flat and stop impatiently tapping her foot.
it was two o'clock in the afternoon and she had decided to waste her much appreciated time and sort the issue with nto out.
She had a day off and wd have loved to stay home, sip on a sweet rose in thick socks, a warm blanket and music.
It was getting colder by the minute, by the looks of things, the coming winter would be hectic.
nto opened the door in a flimsy negligee and a smile.
'hey you' she said cheerfully.
Eve ignored her and stepped around into the warm exterior, it was threatening to rain.
'the weather is beautiful, isn't it?' she said, following eve inside, unaffected by the rude gesture.
Eve granted a reply and stood in the tiny lounge.
'what is it nto?' she tried to look into the woman's eyes and understand what was driving this engine.
'would you like some wine?' nto said instead.
'i have an orange river cellars nicely chilled....it's cheap but so accommodating to the palate'.
''stop beating about the bush and tell me why am here nto'.

'ok,be like that', just then she slipped her little negligee off,'i want you...'
Slowly she walked to her,a sweet little smile playing on her lips,
But there was also an almost childlike fear in her eyes.
Eve sighed.
'don't do this nto...please'
'i love you eve, I don't know how it happened...you are all I think abt'

'but you knew abt dana, you knew nothing cd happen between us'.
'i guess my heart never paid heed..'
'i can't do this nto, we might have had our differences with dana but I love her and she's the one I want to be with, I thought you understood that.'

'i can't just not feel, what am I supposed to do about all these feelings? You played with my feelings, made me thin you felt the same way,' tears were now trickling her brown cheeks.
Relentlessly, they fell quicker and quicker.
'please don't cry...am sorry, I just thought we both understood what was going on...'
'please make love to Me...' she had crossed the distance between them and now held eve's arm pitifully,
Eve felt as trapped as a mouse in a cage.


trouble looms.

'we need to talk' nto whined from the other side of the phone.
eve rolled her eyes and sighed inaudibly,obviously nto wasn't letting things go so easy.
'talk about what nto?' eve didn't want to give off her frustration.
'about us...'
'there's no 'us' nto, you know that'.
'please don't say that eve...we were good together,i know you felt it too'.

Eve felt a wave of panic creep up her spine,nto seemed set for a fight and eve didn't possess the energy.
She wished she could sleep and wake up to find that she'd been dreaming.
'i thought we both understood...'
'understood what eve? How is one supposed to understand when their heart is on the line?'
Nto was now sounding squeaky with panic and an uncomfortable naunce of psychosis.
'where do you want to meet?' there was obviously no way of getting out of this,she would meet nto and make it very clear, eve's resolve was evident in the set of her jaw as her thoughts roamed frantically.

'i knew you'd see things my way,'nto sounded resolutely cheerful.
'come to my place friday evening,'she continued.
'can't we meet anywhere else?'
'are you scared of little 'ol me?,i don't bite you know,'What was meant to sound playful had menacing undertones.
Eve felt hopeless,
'ok,i'll be there,' she hang up soon after and felt trapped.
how had she let this happen,and what would happen if dana found out!


Severed ties

'we have to end this nto...'
They sat by the pond at the park,nto threw some bread crumbs to the little ducklings impatiently quacking at the edge of the pond and collected her thoughts quietly.
'why?' she finally asked,the panic she felt only slightly present in her voice.
'dana suspects...'Eve was feeling very uneasy,something told her this wasn't going to be as cut and dry as she had hoped.
'can't we just be more careful?' there was a plea in nto's voice and eve hoped that she wdn't beg,nothing was more pathetic than a jilted lover who begged.
She took a deep breath.
'no...we can't,i feel terrible as it is lying to dana this way,let's just both go back to our respective partners and close this chapter,ok?'
'it's not that simple eve',she said still looking at the pond,her gaze centered on a nonexistent object that she felt she needed to keep in her eye's view or she'd scream.
'what do you mean?' it was eve's turn to panic now,this had been a little fling and she'd hoped they both understood that,obviously someone hadn't gotten the memo.
'i am in love with you...i love you..i have fallen for you...,see how complicated it all becomes for me?' nto said in a gentle yet firm tone,'see how impossible it is for me to simply forget about THIS and close the chapter?' she continued,every word setting eve's heart a pace,All she could think was how did she get herself in this rut.
