Chapter 8 by Annabelle
That night……

There used to be a greying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill.

Anna was outside dangling her feet in the water of Aaron’s pool in the backyard & with her back to the door & not paying attention she didn’t hear the door open she then felt a hand a her shoulder she jumped. She looked up & saw Aaron
“hey” she said
”hey” Aaron said sitting beside her “wanna talk about what happened?” he asked gently
“not really” Anna said “you sure? It might help if you talked to someone” he said “I could say the same thing about you…… about your parents” she said “I’ll talk to you about it if you talk to me” he said Anna took a deep breath “well ummm I was hanging out with some of my friends & I got back late…… so he told me to get something & I wasn’t if half-way down before I got pushed the rest of the way down once I was down he asked me to take my shirt off…” Anna began Aaron listened in horror as he listened to her by the time she was done she was in tears trying not to cry in front of Aaron. Aaron put an arm around her.

But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and,
The light that you shine can be seen.

”your turn” Anna said Aaron smiled “you said something about money missing from your bank” Anna said Aarons smile faded “someone took a lot of money” “how much?” Anna asked “more than $100,000 from my bank account” “wow” Anna said “yea it sucks but I don’t wanna talk about it” Aaron said “okay” Anna smiled

I might compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey.
The more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the grey.

Then a tear rolled down his cheek Anna lend over & whipped it away they Aaron now or never airhead Aaron thought to him self & lend over a bit more & kissed her the kiss seemed to last forever until Aaron lost his balance & fell into the pool Anna he swam back up ran his fingers thru his hair Anna giggled “oh you think this is funny? Well then we’ll just have to see about that” Aaron said he went to the edge grabbed her by the waist & lifted her down into the pool then put her head underwater then let go after a few secs. She came back up she looked at him “come ‘mere” she said Aaron moved closer & she warped her arms around his neck bent down & kissed him deeply after a few minutes Aaron pulled back

There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.

“Hold on here. First of all I gotta know something…… does this mean…… that you’ll go out with me like for real… on a real date? more than one?” Aaron asked Anna smiled “Yea why else would’ve I kissed you” she said with a smirk on her face Aaron grinned & kissed again then broke apart again Anna smiled & looked up at the sky to see all the stars out & shining bright

You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
Baby, to me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?

“hey Aaron?” Anna said turning to look at him “yea” Aaron said looking at her
“You’re my Shining Star” Aaron laughed “good to know” she grinned
“Hey lets go inside & get warm I don’t want you getting sick now” Aaron said

But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

They went inside & Anna was in one of Aaron’s long sleeve tops & with his sweater-jacket on & a pair of blue polar bear PJ bottoms & they were by the fire sitting on the couch

I might compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey.
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah.

& they just laid in each other’s arms & talked then after while went to sleep in the same way

Now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the grey,

Song: Kiss from a Rose - Seal
