Stella was beyond pissed at Mac. He just walked in there, didn’t even consider what Adam was doing for her. She stormed into Mac’s office and stood in front of his desk. He looked up and arched his eyebrow.
“do you need something, Stella?” he asked her.
“yeah I do and did! I wanted to tell my best friend who said he was here for me, that I am HIV negative! But no, he was to busy yelling at everyone. So I have not had anyone to tell about how I’ve been feeling!”
She turned to leave but as quickly as she turned. She was turned back in a matter of seconds, and then pulled into a hug.
“god Stel, I am SO so sorry. I had no idea .” he mumbled in her hair. Then he felt tears drop on his neck and pulled back.
“I’m an ass, and you have every right to be mad at me.” he said and wiped away her tears. She leaned her head on his shoulder.
“I just felt abandoned and like you didn’t care, but you have a lot on your mind too. Don’t worry about it.” she was about to pull away from him, but he just held her tighter.
“where do you think you’re going? you haven’t told me how you felt when you found our you were negative.” he stated and walked them over to his couch. he sat her down then he sat down beside her. She looked in his eye’s and all she could see was care.
“I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulder. like i could love and dream again. I was so scared that if i had HIV everyone would think and treat me like the plague.”
“Oh Stella.” he put he hand on her cheek and traced his thumb along her jaw, “No one would think or treat you differently, especially not me. So what are you going to do know?” he asked her .
“well, you know how i told you i was going to live life to the fullest? well that’s exactly what I’m going to do starting right now.” and with that she pulled his face to hers and kissed him. It took only a second before he reacted to her, and he kissed her with the same force she was kissing him with.
“let’s go to my apartment Stel.” he told her huskily.
I’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.
