If I Were You, I'd Put That Away.


Vic's POV

-Time Lapse: 5 years-

“Come on.” He says, taking my hand to lead me to the top of the hill. I grin at him and press my lips to his. We find a patch of soft grass to sit down on, and I instantly lean my head against his shoulders.

“We haven't been here in forever.” He quietly says before kissing my forehead. I feel myself smile as he intertwines his fingers with mine.

“I know, Jaime. It feels like it's been a lifetime.” Neither of us speak again after that. I look up at the night sky allowing myself to get lost in thought.

I used to wish to die, used to pray for it. My troubled youth haunted me like terrible dreams, and I'd wake up screaming in his arms, and sometimes it would be the other way around. I've grown more attached to him, fallen even more in love – if that's even possible.

I didn't know what it felt like to love until I met Jaime. He helped me through every hard part in my life. He managed to get me to go into rehab for my failed suicide attempt those many years ago. He stayed with me every step of the way, just as he promised. I stayed there for 6 months, and as soon as I was released we moved out of his parent's house and into our own little place. He promised to never leave me again and I believe him.

“I wouldn't change anything that's happened” He says, looking out into the starry night as we dip back down to earth. His curly hair blows into his eyes as I give him a small nod.

I wouldn't change a thing about it either; the journey is hard and rough, but pain makes pleasure possible. Pain is there to remind us all that it's real, that we're alive.

Jaime and I have grown away from the friends we had in school, with the exception of Tony. We still see each other as much as possible, but it isn't like it used to be. It hasn't been since he married Jessie. 4 or 5 months ago, Tony called and told us that they're expecting, so he's been preparing for that. One day I wish to have that. To get married to Jaime and adopt a kid or two. We've talked about it before, and he wants the same.

I'm brought back to reality when I feel him turn towards me. I glance over at him smiling. He looks really nervous and I can't help but laugh at it.

“Marry me” He suddenly says as if he was listening to my thoughts. My laughter comes to a halt and the world leaves my sight. I feel the breath being hollowed from my lungs and I pause, trying to catch my breath. My fingers grip his and I nod, then give him a smile. I don't mean for the tears to fall, but they do, quick and without relent. All because I don't know how I got so lucky, how something so big could happen to someone who felt as small as I once did. Now I feel indestructible.. capable of taking on life, and it isn't as scary as I thought it was.

I lean my head against his shoulder and continue crying, his fingers stroking my hair.

“I'm so lucky.” he whispers gently, stroking at my bottom lip. I shutter beneath the touch, and I can't help but say it back. I'm the luckiest person in the world. I've survived through the hardest times in my life, and it's all because the person I love so much has been there for me. I know without him I wouldn't be here, and it's a weird thing to think about how different my life would be without him. I would be dead without him. But I'm not. I'm alive.. he's alive... and we're together.

“I love you” I whisper before pulling him into a kiss like no other. It's a kiss full of passion and love, which is all a kiss really needs. Kisses aren't about want, they're about passion. He suddenly pulls away and smiles that breath taking smile.

“I love you too.” I fall against his chest again and continue to look up at the stars. Every so often he would point out and name the stars and constellations and I would smile and laugh before kissing him once more. Everything grows quiet and I hear him sigh.

“This is real” He says, smiling wider than his teeth would allow. It almost hurts because it feels so good.

“This is real.” I say softly. I feel like I'm seventeen again, at the second before we kissed for the first time. My heart begins to pound in my chest and I feel the world grow warmer underneath me.

And with that, he kisses me on top of the world.

I would say this is the end, but it's not. It's the beginning of a whole new chapter in my life.
A chapter with the only person I will ever love.
A chapter with Jaime Alberto Preciado.
The love of my life.
