Serenity - A Unique Love Story CHAPTER - 3

“They were from two different worlds. Two entirely different people. But upon their coming together, they created- they found- their own path and together they had their own world and in their own world, they were the same. Everyone else outside of it- everyone else was over there. Away. And they together- they together were here. They were right here. They were the same.” 

"And she ran into the night. Darkness enclosing her figure as she drifted further away. What have I done? There was a sharp pain in my chest. Never had I felt such a pain until tonight. I have to find her." - Cole Haven

I guess you all enjoyed the first two chapters of "Serenity." Here is the third chapter written by Lori McDermett, a writer, a pianist, a singer, and a girl with a lot of other god gifted talents.



"An ice cream shop? Serenity I have been to one of these before." First thing on the get Cole to live list was an ice cream shop.

"But have you had a EXTREME CHOCOLATE SURPRISE?!?" As she speaks, she flails her arms around as is her life depended on it.

"I cannot say I have." Her jaw drops and she turns away briskly.

"AUNT HELLEN!!! EMERGENCY!" She screams as some older lady comes out.

"What's the emergency dear? Is everyone alright?" The lady by the name Hellen says. I look at Serenity waiting for her explanation as does Hellen.

"Oh by the way aunt Hellen this is my new friend Cole. Cole this is my aunt Hellen." Her aunt nods at me and offers a warm smile which I return.

"It's nice to meet you Cole. Now Ren, honey what was your big emergency exactly?" Ren? Must be a family nickname of some sort. Serenity's aunt awaits for her answer once again.

"Well you see my friend Cole here has never had one of your EXTREME CHOCOLATE SURPRISES!" Her aunt gapes at me.

"Well we can have that now, can we? I'll bring you guys out one right away." She scurries to the back to make up this concoction. I feel something warm against my hand and look down to see Serenity has taken my hand dragging me to a table. No more than two minutes later her aunt comes out with a giant bowl of ice cream. How on earth are we ever going to finish that!?

"Dig in kids!" Her aunt says while handling us each a spoon. Serenity starts eating as soon as it hits the table. I stare at the bowl overwhelmed about not knowing where to begin. Serenity must have sensed my hesitation because she starts stirring it all together to make one giant flavor instead of a bunch of flavors scattered.

"This way you don't have to chose" she says with a mouthful of ice cream. I laugh at her carelessness, she urges me to take a bite and I do. And man I am glad I did. This is the best thing I have ever tasted!!! I moan in appreciation. She chuckles knowingly.

"Now either you are on the verge of an orgasm or you're enjoying that ice cream a little too much." We look at each other for a second, then crack up laughing. Twenty minutes later we finish up and I head to pay. Her aunt just pushes my money back.

"It's on me. Now go on kids. It's getting late and you have school tomorrow." Serenity hugs her aunt as she whisper something back and forth, giggling every now and then.

"BYE, AUNT HELLEN!!!" She randomnly screams and runs out the door. I offer my hand to bid my farewell but she grabs me and pulls me in a hug. tears are lightly slipping down her face as she releases.

"Thank you Cole." And she leaves it at that. I walk out to catch up with that little spirit fire to see Shawn cornering her. I walk towards them trying to figure out what's going on. I finally arrive at the scene and he is closing the space around her.

"Hello Shawn. What is it you want on this fine and now horrible evening?"

"Oh Serenity and I were just talking. Right babe?" He wraps his arm around her tightly making her uncomfortable.

"Get off me Shawn." she struggles to push him off.

"Shawn she said get off. So get the hell out of here." My breathing picked up as my anger grew inside me. I clenched my fist.

"And who's going to make me?" He smirked and pushed Serenity against the wall and kissed her forcibly. Anger reached it's boiling point, I couldn't hold it on. I was about to pull him off when all of a sudden he is on the ground with Serenity on top, beating him to a pulp. I couldn't believe my eyes. Seeing she had the power in her to kill him, I grabbed her arm gently and pulled her away from that bloody bastard.

"Now I suggest you leave before she could actually do some permanent damage not only to your face but ego."

He stands up, runs off to his car and speeds away. I turn back to Serenity and she's crying. Her delicate hands holding her usually beaming face, pouring all her fears and frustration into them. I tilt her chin to look at me and just stare into her orbs. Even with mascara running down her cheeks still she looks better than anyone on the planet. We stare at each other for a while with her hands in mine. Her eyes are desperate begging for help, but looks frightened to do so. I lift her slowly feeling the same little shocks of energy as I did earlier. Never once my gaze leaving hers. Then all of a sudden like as if a magnet pulled us towards each other, we were leaning in. And just like that our lips met. I was slipping into a trance of peace and happiness. I felt needed and wanted. Her lips dancing across mine urgently. I responded back to her with the same amount of urgency. My insides were bursting with joy and excitement. If this is what they call love, count me in. We slowed down a bit considering we actually have to breathe to survive but the slower we got the more pleasure consumed me. My body was under her spell and I loved every minute of it. Her lips fit perfectly on mine. My hands roamed her feeble body hoping to be closer. Then it came to a stop as we both gasped for air, still holding eye contact , except now her look changed as she was grateful and happy once again. The lightness in her eyes was enough happiness for me for a lifetime. Then the thought hit me. I can't go another day without her. My life wouldn't mean anything without her.

Wait what am I thinking? I just met this girl and already I'm thinking of my life without her. So, I did the only stupid thing I could think of.

"I'm sorry."

And she ran into the night. Darkness enclosing her figure as she drifted further away. What have I done? There was a sharp pain in my chest. Never had I felt such a pain until tonight. I have to find her.

“Time. Time has a way of standing still during the moments that define one’s life.
The first kiss, the birth of one’s first child, a paralyzing car accident, hearing of the death of a parent, the last kiss.”
