Two of Us || Zach and Melanie
Melanie was ecstatic and terrified at the same time. She had reached the end of the fourth day since finding out the truth about what had really been going on between Gabriel and Zach. And really, considering it had been midday when everything had happened, it felt more like five days. Five exceptionally horrible days of her life. Or, more like a Hell on Earth. She hadn’t eaten, she hadn’t slept–she hadn’t been able to do anything besides lay in her bed and cry. But now, after sitting down and talking–really talking–with her Father, she was ready. (And with his permission, nonetheless.)
The young blonde had run through several different scenarios in her head of what to say. There were a million ways to say I’m sorry, I love you. And she wanted to do it the right way. Melanie had almost gone as far as to write herself notes to read on the way to his apartment, but she stopped the craziness there. Instead, she muttered lines to herself as she walked–people had probably thought there was something wrong with her. But it didn’t matter, because now she was here. Pausing for a moment, she recollected what she would say one last time, and then took the stairs up to his apartment. (Melanie had made sure to spot his car beforehand.) Inhaling, she knocked on the door, her heart speeding in her chest. All of a sudden, she couldn’t remember anything.
