It’s after three in the morning and I’m in the middle of a three way phone call with Cain and Trevor. I just want to forget about the argument that I had with Trish and sleep it off. Why did you have to do this god?

“Jerry, you need to tell Henry how you feel. Even when he rejects you as your ma-” Trevor explains but I cut him off.

“Henry isn’t my mate Trevor; you know that just as much as I do. Besides, I already have someone that I’m arranged to marry any way.” I said to him. Trevor was silent, after a few moments Cain spoke up.

“You’re right Jerry, you’re absolutely right.” Said Cain. Thank god he agrees with me.

“What the hell Cain?” Said Trevor a bit louder in irritation. I sighed and breathed in deep, then exhaling slow.

“Trevor, please be considerate over Jerry’s feelings here, he has his own reasons as to why he won’t tell Henry about anything to do with this.” Said Cain.

“Ok then. Look Melissa is waking up and I can’t let her become a part of this. I’ll talk to you tomorrow ok Jerry?” I smiled small.

“I’ll talk to you tomorrow.” I said. Now the last persistent person to deal with.

“Cain, I know what you’re thinking and it’s not going to happen.” I say to him.

“I understand but one thing you must consider though Jerry, and that is how would you feel if your friend Melissa kept something from you? You’d never feel happy about it.” He said to me. My eyes widened in unknown feelings that absorbed into my heart. He has a point there, I wanna tell Henry how I feel. But I don’t wanna lose him as a friend and I do truly love the man-

“You know damn well that I’m right Jerry. Follow your heart and it’ll bring you to your life’s destiny.” Cain said then hanging up on me I take a deep breath.

“I’m so fucking stubborn; maybe tomorrow I’ll grab Henry and ask him out for a cup of coffee?” I ask myself. From this question, I shake my head. Why am I so torn apart between my hearts desires and the friendship that I don’t want to lose? Henry is the one man I would do anything for and I mean anything. But if I tell him how I feel, what will happen in the future between us? I can’t overthink things right now though, I got work in the morning and the first person that I’ll be seeing is Henry. I put my phone down on my bedside table and I lay down on my bed, not wanting to think nor feel the pain that is to come.

 

Ring… Ring... Ring-

“Fuck!” I scream out loud to myself as I know that I’m going to be late and Henry will just kick my ass with reasons why I need a job!

 

As I park in the parking lot, I see Melissa and Trevor holding hands as they walk into the building together. The pain in my heart settles in because deep inside, I want that between me and Henry.

“Jerry?” Called out a voice. I look out by my side and I see Henry smiling.

“Let’s get going, you have a film to shoot in less than two hours.” Henry explains. I smile, keeping the pain inside I nodded and got out with my things and went inside with Henry by my side. Wishing it would be the same way as Melissa and Trevor.

 

“Thank the gods that the film shoot is finally over for today!” I say aloud. Henry just gave out a chuckle and looked at me as we walked into my office. I sit down as Henry sits down at his own desk as well.

“Henry?” I asked him. Henry looked up at me and smiled.

“Yeah, Jerry?” He asked me. I know this is a bad idea but-

“How would you feel if your friend Melissa kept something from you? You’d never feel happy about it”

“Jerry?” Asked Henry. I looked up at him and laughed a bit.

“Would you like go out for coffee later during lunch?” I asked him. Henry’s eyes widened in shock.

“Yeah, sure.” Henry says smiling at the question I asked him. I finally decided- I’ll tell him, I know I’ll be taking a chance but I need to let him know that he will always have a special place in my heart and no one will ever replace him in any life of mine.

 

“Jerry!” Melissa called out on the phone as I drove to the local star bucks’ café.

“Hey honey! Has your naughty little boy been behaving? I hope not!” I say loudly. All Melissa did was giggle.

“You’re amazing Jerry and yes he has been behaving more than usual lately, which means something weird is happening right now. Oh where are you at? I didn’t see you in the lunch room.” Melissa asked me. I smiled.

“Me and Henry are eating at star bucks’ today and I had to get out of the building with him any way for personal reasons.” I explained to her. Melissa laughed at me over the phone.

“Hey, um Jerry you know you can come to me anytime right? I don’t care if it’s in the middle of me and Trevor’s alone time or when I’m working. I’ll be here waiting, because you’re my friend.” Melissa said to me. My eyes widened from those words. To be honest I’ll tell her when work is over.

“Mind if I come by your place after work?” I asked her.

“Yeah of course!” She said to me.

“Listen I gotta go, Trevor is here and it looks like something I needed to hear about someone we both know. I’ll talk to you later.” She said then hangs up the phone. I know who that person is… Lucas Blackthorn.

 

I pull into the parking lot and I walk inside the café, I see Henry at the cashier and paying for his cup of coffee. I smile, knowing what type of coffee he loves here. I walk over and get my cup of coffee as well. Then with the both of us sitting down, we start drinking our coffee and having that same quality time back when we were kids again.

“It’s been so long since we sat down and had a chat like this.” Henry spoke as he took a sip of his coffee. I look out the window as we sat there in the corner inside of the café. I turned my eyes back over to him and I took a deep breath.

“Henry I have to make a confession about the two of us.” I said to him. Henry tilted his head in confusion, as he didn’t understand what I meant by that. I put my cup of coffee down and I took his hand.

“Henry, there hasn’t been one man in my life that I ever trusted nor felt closest to compared to you. For that I am extremely happy for that.” I explain to him.

“Just spit it out Jerry, what is it?” He asked. I smiled as tears started falling from my eyes.

“I’ll show you, but please forgive me Henry.” I say then leaning forward and placing my lips against his. His body was still as the air between us, I know he may not feel the same way- but I don’t care, I just want him to know that I’ll always love him. Even when all is lost between us. When he leaves it’ll hurt, it’ll never be the same between us. I pulled back and I see his eyes in shock. The only words that came out without any control were these exact words-

“Henry I am in love with you!”
