I couldn't fathom when the touch of his lips left me as he suddenly turned around, leaving me pinned against the door and started walking away. I closed my mouth, touching my lips lightly as I tried to figure out what the hell was wrong with him. One second he was kissing me and the next second, pretending nothing happened.
I silently and slowly followed him after a couple of seconds, awkwardly gazing at him as he took out a cardboard box from his refrigerator, grabbing a plate to place four slices in it and putting it in the microwave as I shuffled on my feet, my gaze falling on the picture on the wall infront of me, the picture of him and his wife.
It was their wedding photo and he stood behind her, his arms wrapped around the beautiful goddess as they both stood smiling. I felt a little remorse as I thought about how she must have passed away.
"Here you go," Nathan muttered as he placed the now warm slices of the dish on the small dining table. I quickly walked towards him, pulling out a chair,"Thank you."
He sat down across from me as I awkwardly picked up a slice, bringing it close to my mouth,"You should take some too."
He ignored me and I felt a little creeped out and overwhelmed as I awkwardly ate under his unwavering gaze. I wanted to say something, something to break the tension but couldn't bring myself to. Quickly finishing up another slice, I dusted off my hands, smiling at him, "thanks again."
I got up from the chair, ready to leave as I picked up the plate and he took it from my hands, putting it back in the refrigerator. I felt compelled to say something as I again gazed at the picture of the two of them, her dark-skin tone so perfectly contrasting with her beautiful pearl white smile, my hand tightly clutching my wallet in one hand.
"She looks so beautiful..." I mumbled under my breath as I sensed his form approach me,"I am so sorry for your loss."
"It isn't your fault. No need to apologise for something you can do nothing about you." He muttered as he quickly moved past me, opening the door for me. I stepped out as he proceeded to lock it and quickly started descending the stairs after him, the awkwardness engulfing the both of us.
