CHAPTER 5 – Change

**TORI’s POV**

He’s back. Zach is back.”

There was uneasiness in my voice and I felt panic starting to creep in. I really don’t know what to do or say. Honestly, I’m not prepared! I’ve been thinking about the things that I’ll do when he comes back or once I saw him but after a month of waiting in vain, I really forgot about it.

I decided that I shouldn’t keep my hopes up. I should accept the fact that he will never come back again.

But then, he did.

He’s here. In the same place as I am. Standing a few feet away from me.

I’m wondering, what will he do? What will he say? What was his reason as to why he came back? And what was the meaning of the dance we shared last night!

What are you planning, Zachary Anderson?

“He’s back?” Chloe questioned. She looked over my shoulder and then I saw her eyes widen. “Oh my! He is!” She immediately looked at me, worried. “You want to—”

“Get out of here? Yes! Please.” I told her. But when I was about to retreat, she grabbed my hand as if reprimanding me.

“No. I was about to ask if you want to come over and say hi.” She suggested.

What was that? Come over and say hi!

“Are you kidding me?” I asked, enraged.

“Do I look like I’m kidding?” Chloe eyed me seriously.

You’ve got to be kidding me! Am I the only one who’s processing this situation completely? My ex came back, who left me without a proper closure just a stupid letter, and I’m going to come over to say hi!

This is not the case of forgive and forget!

“Are you out of your mind? It’s Zach! Zach-stupid-Anderson!”

“And so? I perfectly know that he’s Zach. Tori, if he’s here right now, I think he’s back for good. Sooner or later, you have to face him. You don’t want to waste each of your days hiding away from him, right? So why waste this opportunity if you can face your fear now. Come on.” Chloe encouraged.


“No buts. It’s too late. They’re coming over.”

“What?!” I hissed.

“Straighten up and act cool.” She whispered. I saw her compose herself and then she smiled. “Well, well, well. Look who’s back!”

“Chloe, it’s been a long time.” It’s a greeting from Nathan. I know his voice! When I was about to face him, I heard another voice that made stop from turning around.

“Hey Clow. Still the same, huh.”

It was him.

Suddenly, it’s hard to breath. His voice was enough to make every nerve in my body go crazy! My heart is beating so fast, I think it will explode any minute now!

So, this is how it feels like to face your ex for the very first time after he broke your heart.

“So. Is that you, Tori?” I heard him call my name. I think my heart just came out of my chest. I’m unbelievably nervous! Oh my, how am I going to turn around without looking silly in front him!
