I stare at Victor’s back as he practices his form. He amuses me, most people misunderstand him but I understand his loyalty to Rale. If Salem was a cruel evil manipulator, I’d probably still be loyal to her until death. I don’t believe in abstract phrases and principles; I believe in people.

“Sleep with me.” I say to him.

“For the tenth time, No.” Victor answers and goes back to ignoring me.

“Why?” I ask.

“I… I don’t want to.” He misses a step.

I move closer to him and he shifts backwards.

“That is not a reason, do you find me attractive?” I ask without stopping.

He doesn’t answer me and he hits the wall. Other soldiers leave us alone.

“Do you hate me?” I ask again.

“Do you like women with bigger breasts instead? Hmmmmm or do you like men?” I whisper the last part enjoying the way his face flushes anytime I talk.

He switches the position in a blink and I smile impressed.

“Do you offer to sleep with random men or am I just special?” He asks with a serious face.

“You are special.” I admit.

“How?”

“I don’t want to sleep with other men.” I bite my lip.

“Not like that… get your mind out of the gutter.” He groans.

“I can’t, I like the gutter.”

“Be serious!”

“I am serious.” I chuckle.

He kisses me against the wall desperately while holding my hands down. I sigh in disappointment for not feeling him intimately.

“Marry me” he says against my lips.

“Will you sleep with me if I do?” I ask.

“It is expected, you can’t sleep with anyone else for the rest of your life.” He responds.

“Can I sleep with you as often as I want?”

He sighs helplessly… “Yes.”

“Alright… I will marry you.”

“Do you even understand what that means?” he asks with doubt.

“I am not as clueless as you may think… if Salem can do it, it can’t be that hard.” I shrug.

“Do you love me?” He asks.

“Do you love me?” I ask.

“From the first time I saw you.” He whispers back and my heart starts to pound faster.

I drag his head back to mine and kiss him.

“Then, I’ll learn to love you or whatever that means.”
