Masks of Dusk
After a few moments, she raised her eyes, his back still facing her, sitting on a little comfy couch. A couch where couples sometimes squeeze to sit. Her eyes widened at her thoughts, shaking her head in embarrassment. She decided to walk up to him.
She stood in front of him, bending her head to meet his calm eyes.
He took off the black cigarette from his lips, making Jessy notice its colors and patterns again,
”What does K actually stand for? ” She asked.
He looked at her. ”Kayn. ”
”Is that your name? ” She had a hunch.
He nodded slightly to answer her.
Kayn, what a nice name, she thought. ”Oh really, I never knew you could do stuff like that. ”
He didn answer her anymore and kept smoking.
Jessy thought he wanted to change the subject, but from his calm eyes he just didn care about it, rather he answered her question, then simply moved on. That was the kind of person he was. She sat in the seat next to him.
”You always come here with your computer, do you study or work? ”
”Work. You? ”
”Studying for my final exams. ”
”For when? ”
« Two weeks from now. » She wanted to ask about his work, but she didn .
« Ready? »
She nodded. ”Yes, well I hope so, ” she giggled. Emm, ” she looked hesitant, ”What are your plans for summer? ”
”I don know, you? ”
”Me too, hoping the exams finish first. » she remained silent for a moment. ”Will you stop coming here? ”
”This the only place I am familiar with in this city. ”
Jessys eyes widened. ”Are you not from here? ”
”No, ” he stubbed out his cigarette. ”Work got me here. ”
”So, you are telling me, for all these months you were here, you are seriously only familiar with this place? ” She wanted to tease him jokingly.
”Sadly yeah. ” He lit another cigarette.
”Hmm, If its like that then I have a lot of places in mind to show you around. ”
He met her eyes slowly. ”Would you. ”
That wasn a question, thought Jessy. But she still smiled and answered. ”Yeah. ”
Soon did the conversation quiet down while he looked away and smoked.
”Will you be here tomorrow? ” She asked.
”No. I will be away these two days. ”
”Where to? ”
”Dealing with a family business. ”
”Oh yeah, okay. Your, brother seemed rich. Do you work with him? »
”You can say that. You
e into money? ”
« Oh no, no, you know thats not what I meant. »
e not into rich people? ”
”Whether ones rich or not doesn make a difference to me. I can make my own money. ”
”Oh, boss girl. Thats cute. ” He suddenly leaned in, his face closer to hers, his eyes staring at her so warmly she shied away from his gaze.
”R-really? ” She became nervous as this was the first time he initiated something.
”Stop what. ” His voice became deeper and coarser, yet still calm and unwavering.
”K-Kayn, ” her voice softened.
She heard him lean back in his seat.
”You tease me like this, ” stealing a few glances but still shying from his eyes.
”I enjoy it. ”
As Jessy opened her mouth to talk, Kayn suddenly held a leg of her chair and pulled her closer.
She was surprised, her heart skipping a beat.
She turned, finding a little kid passing through the gap opened by her seat and the wall, to his mother, who looked at Jessy and Kayn with an apologetic expression. Jessy smiled at her and looked over at Kayn.
Jessy still had her heart beating widely because of what he did. This never happened to her. She looked away for a second before looking into his eyes.
Fuck… she thought.
”I am shy at first, but I change when I will become comfortable with you. This is not the real me. ”
Suddenly his expression changed, cold, calm, freezing. His hand was placed on the back of her seat.
”Who is the real you? ” his cold and imposing voice resounded again in her ear.
She was looking away, sometimes meeting his eyes, but couldn maintain eye contact. ”Well, it depends, if its friendship or a relationship. I have a personality for each. Which one are you curious about? ” She asked.
”Don play with me, you tell me. ”
Jessy this time didn leave his eyes. ”I am possessive. ” Her voice suddenly packed weight. ”Obsessive over whats mine. ”
”Yeah, I know, I can be controlling too. ”
”Is this what you usually say to guys you are interested in? ”
Her eyebrows twitched. ”Unfortunately, I didn get the chance to show this side of me. ”
”Oh, ” He acted sad. ”No one was worthy enough to obsess over. ”
She met his eyes. ”No one. ”
”What happens when you find the right one? ”
”The right one… I don know… I will be true to myself. ” Her eyes in the end changed. This wasn the Jessy her friends inside knew.
His long moment of silence after her words made her snap out of it, even making her a bit anxious as his eyes didn leave her.
”Good girl, ” he spoke coldly as he leaned back.
She looked away in frustration.
”Don smoke too much when I am not here. I know you only do so when you are stressed. ”
She looked at him.
”You are not the only one who notices stuff. ”
”I guess so, ” Jessys cheeks became red.
His phone suddenly rang. He held it, staring at it for a while.
”It seems like I have to leave early if I want to get back in two days. ”
”Oh, okay. I guess you will leave now? ”
”Yeah, I will. ” He stood up. ”You can join your friends, I will be leaving now. ”
His hand was placed around her waist as he helped her mover across him, ”Be safe. ”
”You too. ” Jessy could feel his strong fingers. Her ears had turned red, she clenched her phone tighter without saying a word.
He took off the trash left on his table, threw it away and left, while she just took a seat with her friends.
Jessy was left to deal with their questions.
”He will be leaving for two days, ” she said.
Ashley held her arm chuckling, ”Oh, is something finally happening. ”
”Hmm, I was thinking if he didn today, I would ask him out, you know. But he has to leave so maybe until he gets back. ”
« So bold of you huh, » laughed Emily.
« What do you like about him, actually? Tell us we waited for so long. »
Jessy thought about it deeply. ”Well, I don know. If anything would be how he is as a person. How he carries himself. The way he speaks. The way his words carry weight. And how he doesn care about peoples stares as long as it made his cute niece happy, » she giggled, « He is such a caring man with a cold attitude I guess. ” Her eyes suddenly changed when she finished her sentence, unnoticed by the others, And of course, he is hot as hell, so hot I want him to mess me up. She was fangirling inside.
