“Well,” Sabrina said, “I don’t know. I mean I don’t entirely believe in. I can’t see it and won’t believe it until then.”
“Ah. You’re one of those people.”
“What do you mean?”
“Like those people who have to see it to believe it.”
“Yeah. It is a trust thing.”
“I’ve noticed that you don’t like to let people in with your emotions.”
“It’s okay. We all have things that we need to work on.”
“Yeah. I know.”
“At least you’re able to admit it. Some people can’t even do that.”
“That’s true. I guess.”
“It is true. Ask anyone. They will tell you what I’ve told you.”
“I believe you,” she said.
They sat in silence for a few seconds. Sabrina wanted to know what was going on in his head, but she didn’t want to interrupt the silence. She liked it.
“So,” he said breaking the silence, “I was wondering. Would you like to go out sometime? Just you and me?”
“I would love that,” as she smiled.
“Yeah,” Sabrina said as she looked at the clock, “Oh my God, I can’t believe it is 11:30 already.”
“Yeah. Look,” she said as she pointed to the hotel’s digital clock.
“I should get going then. We have our performance tomorrow.”
“Alright,” she said as she got off the bed.
Sabrina and Mark walked to the door.
“See you tomorrow,” Mark said as he was turning the doorknob.
“Goodnight Marky,” she said.
He kissed her on the forehead, then on the cheek, and headed out the door. Mark turned around to face her.
“Goodnight Bri,” he replied, looking into her eyes.
Sabrina shut the door as Mark turned towards the elevators and walked away. Her heart was beating way too fast and hard for her to breathe. Sabrina walked to the bathroom and looked into the mirror. She reflected on what happened. She got into the shower and got ready for bed. Sabrina walked out of the bathroom drying her hair with a towel. She was humming and didn’t realize it. Sabrina was humming The Cheetah Girls’ remake of “So This is Love”. She laughed to herself, once she realized it. Sabrina finished drying her hair and lay down on her bed. She didn’t know what to think, but all she knew was that true love existed and that it was happening to her.
