Loving With A Heavy Heart Chapter 134
133 Are You Serious About Her?
It was early on Sunday afternoon and as usual, despite it being a weekend, Adam had spent most of the day so far working. He had brought his laptop downstairs and was currently working from the living room where he could enjoy the sunlight that filled the room.
The winter weather was long gone. So were the cold rains of spring now. Every day was getting warmer and warmer. Today the sun was out in full force, shinning brightly as Adam sat on the sofa and typed away on his keyboard.
Time seemed to stand still as the scene in the living room went on, unchanging, until finally it was disturbed by the doorbell ringing.
Adam glanced towards the door as if contemplating. Then the bell rang a second time. With a light sigh Adam closed the screen in front of him and got up to open the door. Marcus stood on the other side. He gave Adam a bright smile and let himself in.
"You were working? Did I interrupt you?" Marcus asked.
"Yes." Adam replied bluntly.
"Good. It's a bad habit to work so hard. If you don't rest more often you'll end up burning yourself out."
Marcus gave his friend a sympathetic look and let the topic fall. "I finally closed the deal on that hotel." He said instead. "It went better than I expected, which is thanks to you. You really did me a favour by looking through that contract before."
"Did you come all this way just to thank me?"
"Of course, I did."
Adam gave Marcus a skeptical look.
"Okay fine, I was just bored today and so I dropped by."
Adam continued to stare.
"Fine already." Marcus confessed. "I was only partially lying though. I did come to thank you but I was hoping to see your girlfriend again while I was here. Last time I barely got to speak to her. Who would have thought that the legendary woman who managed to get Adam to take a vacation would then leave him working alone on a Sunday. How disappointing."
That got a smirk out of Adam. "If you were at Amelia's party last night you would have been able to see her."
"Really? How unfortunate, I was at a contract signing event and couldn't make it."

"I'm sure you'll have another opportunity in the future."
"I better. I can't believe you finally got yourself a girlfriend and yetwait" Marcus trailed off as he was suddenly interrupted by a thought. "Who confessed first you or her?" He asked suddenly.
"Not saying." As Adam replied firmly he looked away. It was a small tell but it was all Marcus needed, They were old friends after all, he knew Adam well enough to know what it meant.
"You did didn't you?" Marcus exclaimed excitedly. "Now I really need to speak to her. I need to know in what foolish way you confessed. Imagine how many years of teasing I'd get out of it."
"You think I'd be that embarrassed over a trivial piece of information?"
"You were embarrassed enough to not want me to know." Marcus pointed out.
"I didn't want you to know only because I wanted to prevent this exact conversation. Besides, I have way more material on you than you on me. If you do start this fight I'll surely win."
"Fine, I concede." Marcus said in defeat.
The two friends talked for a while longer, mostly about work, until eventually Marcus had to leave. "Sorry for intruding on you." He apologized as they made their way to the front door.
"Hey, one more thing. Are you serious about this girl?" He asked, referring, of course, to Elle.
"Of course I am You know me, I wouldn't bother if I wasn't serious."
"Good. Then you better introduce her to the rest of us properly soon. It's unfair to make us suffer with curiosity like this."
"Fine. One day I'll let you meet her." Adam agreed vaguely. It was enough for Marcus to be satisfied.
"Alright. See you later then."
As Adam closed the door behind his friend he heard light laughter coming from behind him. He walked back into the living room from where he could see Elle standing on the upper level, leaning against the barrister, with a grin on her face.
"You like me." She teased childishly.
"Eavesdropping is a bad habit you know." Adam reprimanded her un-seriously.
"You're 'serious' about me." Elle continued to tease.
"I don't want to be teased by the one who didn't even get out of bed until the afternoon."
"And whose fault is that?" Elle asked with a flushed face.
"Is it my fault?" Adam asked with a smirk. "As I recall you were the one who initiated last night."
"You're the one who started the second time though." Elle complained.
"You're right. It's my fault." Adam said, sounding pleased with himself. "Why don't you go get dressed and I'll take you out to dinner to make up for it."
"Okay." Elle agreed before happily bounding off to change out of her pyjamas, leaving Adam waiting below with a content smile pulling up the corners of his lips.
