"Christmas, huh...?" she blurted out and thought for a moment before she shook her head.
"I'm not sure, Adrian. Then again, you don't have to bother yourself. I don't really need anything."
"Well, I know several things that you might want, but I'm not certain if you still want them..." he said with a smile tugging at his lips.
"Come on, isn't there anything in particular that you want?"
Adrian had been wanting to ask this to Cassidy for a while. While he's more than willing to give her even the stars and the moon, what he wants is to give her what she truly desires.
"It's okay. Just get me anything you like. Anything is fine with me."
She told him that, but of course, he wasn't satisfied. He insisted on getting an answer from her. Yet knowing how stubborn she could be, he soon found the need to resign.
"Really, Adrian. Anything will be fine with me," she giggled when he eventually sighed in defeat.
They stayed silent after that, staring out into the bustling city as well as its myriad of street lights. Then, without any prior notice, he placed his hand on top of her head before he used his other one to hold hers and intertwine their fingers together. She looks at him curiously while he beams down at her ecstatically.
"So, what are you going to give me?" Adrian inquired, earning a pout from Cassidy.
"What do you mean what am I going to give you? I already made you a cake. Is there something else you want?"
"I'm not talking about my birthday. You already gave me the best presents ever - another chance and your forgiveness. I couldn't ask for anything better than those."
She blushed at how he said that with the softest, gentlest look she'd seen on anyone. He then laughed a little when she started acting all embarrassed. Still pouting, she just shot him a sharp gaze in return.
"I'm talking about Christmas, Cassidy"
She was a bit taken aback. Once again, she thought about it for a moment before she looked at him in grave disappointment.
"I don't know yet. I hadn't thought about it until now...." she trailed off and cast down her gaze.
"I thought we wouldn't be spending Christmas together, you know. I thought I wasn't going to get back together with you. But in the end, I went and did. I'm glad we're together again, though."
Adrian was glad he was together with Cassidy, too.
She makes his life complete for she fills a huge part of his heart. He never wants to let her go or lose her again. He wishes he can stay this way with her forever. If she is to leave once more, she's certainly going to knock down the remaining balance he has left. But he'll do his hardest so that it'll not happen again.
He'll work harder to make her stay. He'll love her as if his life depends on it.
"Hey, Adrian..?" Cassidy chimed in again, breaking the silence.
