Chapter 3: Forbidden Love
3.5 Forbidden Love: The Only Girl in the World
Angelo started to run after Camilla but Alejandro stopped him.
No, let me Alejandro said. I think you have done enough he said as he walked out of the room.
Angelo just stood in Alejandro’s bedroom feeling horrible about the way he acted. He wanted to apologize to Camilla for being such a jerk. Angelo walked slowly into the hallway trying to be quiet as he tiptoed to Camilla’s room. As he approached her bedroom door he could hear her sobbing. Then he heard Alejandro say it was going to be okay. Angelo looked into the room to see Camilla sitting on the edge of her bed with her back turned to him and Alejandro sitting next to her.
I’m sorry Alejandro said as he wrapped his arm around her. He pulled her close and held her in his arms. Angelo stood in the hallway not saying a word, just watching. He didn’t know what to say sorry just didn’t seem adequate enough. Take a shower and get dressed Alejandro told her. I’m going to give you my credit card and the limo so you can go shopping he said. Alejandro looked over to the door and saw Angelo standing there with his head door. I’m going to send Angelo with you he said to her. Angelo looked up in shock, he could not believe what he had just heard. Alejandro took Camilla’s face in his hand and wiped her tears. Stop crying he said as he looked into her eyes and ran his fingers through her hair. Alejandro looked back over to Angelo and said Go get dressed I want you to go shopping with her and keep an eye on her. Okay Angelo stammered as he began to walk to his room.
What is he up to? He thought. Why is my cousin being so nice right now? He wondered. Whatever Alejandro was cooking up was giving Angelo an entire day alone with Camilla and he was going to use it to his advantage.
Alejandro kissed Camilla on the forehead. Okay I’m going to let you get ready he said as he stood up and left the room.
Alejandro left Camilla’s room shutting her door on the way out and headed to Angelo’s room. Alejandro had a plan, he thought by sending Angelo with Camilla he could earn some points with her. Alejandro had to make sure Angelo knew this was not an invitation for him to make a move on Camilla. Alejandro knocked on Angelo’s already opened door.
Cousin! Alejandro called.
Angelo stepped out of the bathroom with a towel around his waist. What? He asked.
When you take Camilla out today keep your hands to yourself he ordered. Angelo smiled as he went over to his closet and took out a suit. I’m serious you are just to keep an eye on her that’s it Alejandro said.
Okay cousin I got you Angelo said with a laugh. I won’t touch her but if she touches me I’m not going to stop her he said with a huge grin.
Well I’m not to worried about that Alejandro stated.
If you saw the way she kissed me last night you would be Angelo said staring Alejandro down with fire in his eyes.
Alejandro swallowed hard and tried not to look bothered by Angelo’s statement. Just get dressed he said as he left Angelo’s room and slammed his door. He had saw the kiss and he knew Camilla had feelings for Angelo but he also knew she had feelings for him too. He just hoped that she liked him more.
