To Make Her Smile
by Fate

     

Chapter Two

Theresa opened the front door to the Crane estate, her heart heavy. It was getting harder and harder to go to work each day, knowing that Ethan would always be there.

As she stepped inside, a pair of strong arms pulled her into the entry hall. Before she even had time to react, a blindfold was placed over her eyes. Theresa’s body tensed as her heart raced with fear.

"Surprise Theresa!"

Ethan. Theresa relaxed and turned towards his voice.

"Ethan…what’s going on?"

"You, Ms. Lopez- Fitzgerald, have the day off. My orders. We are going to have fun."

"But-"

Ethan cut her off. He gently took her arm and led her back outside.

"No buts. Now, I fully trust that you won’t make an attempt to remove the blindfold. Cause if you did…well, it would ruin the surprise!"

Theresa nodded, her feeling the past weeks’ burden lifting. She could feel a smile forming and then, she remembered her vow. Why was he doing this! If he kept being so sweet, then she might just never get over him!

Theresa, you no longer love Ethan. He’s not doing his because he loves you- he’s doing this because you’re his friend. No matter what he does, you no longer love him!

Releasing her arm as they came to a stop, Ethan gently pushed a strand of hair behind her ear.

"Now, don’t worry, Theresa. You trust me, don’t you?"

"I trust you Ethan."

"Good. Now, lets go!"

He eased her into his car, then hopped into the passenger side.

Remember, Theresa: you are over him. Your love for him is a thing of the past.

Ethan was ecstatic that the "kidnapping" had been so easy to do. He knew the whole thing intrigued her. He had seen that smile. True, it was gone as quickly as it appeared but it still warmed Ethan’s heart. It had been over a month since he had seen it.

He leaned in to flick on the radio.

"Ooh, I love this song!" Theresa squealed. Ethan held back a laugh. THIS was the Theresa he knew.

"What is it?"

"Ssh," Theresa hushed him. "Listen."

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star that somewhere you are
Thinking of me too

Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you even see me
And I wonder if you know I'm there
If you looked in my eyes
Would you see what's inside
Would you even care?

I just wanna hold you close
But so far all I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day
And the courage to say how much I love you
Yes I do!

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe
That you came up to me and said "I love you"
I love you too!

Now I'm dreaming with you tonight
Till tomorrow and for all of my life
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room dreaming of you endlessly

Dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
Endlessly
And I'll be holding you tight
Dreaming...with you...tonight!

("Dreaming of You",
sung by Selena, written by Franne Gold and Tom Snow. This, in my own opinion is Theresa’s theme song *)

Ethan listened to lyrics- not as Selena sang them, but as Theresa did. She sang them with so much intensity and longing, Ethan couldn’t help himself from asking,

"Have you ever been in love, Theresa?"

Theresa took her time in responding.

"Well, I thought I was…but all the heart ache that’s involved, it’s not worth it."

Ethan’s heart fell. Theresa had seemed on the mend, and then he had to bring up the subject of Love.

If I ever see Chuck again, I swear I’ll kill him for doing this to her!

"You can’t mean that, Theresa," Ethan replied, turning the radio off. Ethan could just slap himself for being so stupid!

"Oh. But I do, Ethan! You put so much in to loving this one person- you put your entire soul into it! - and what do you get out of it? A whole bunch of nothing, just sitting around, waiting for that person to feel the same way. And when it becomes clear that they will never feel that way about you, you’re spent. What use is there to fall in love if the love you’re giving isn’t returned?"

Ethan’s heart pounded in his chest as he sat there in stunned silence. How could Theresa believe that? Ethan knew there was someone out there, loving her. Who…well, now Ethan had a new mission. He had to help Theresa find that someone who loved her with their whole being.

And then something dawned on Ethan.

"Theresa, I know you don’t believe that," he said gently, taking her hand in his. He tightened his grip; hers remained limp.

"How- how can you say that! I do believe it, Ethan! I used to believe in fate and true love and all the magic that goes along with it, but I’ve had my heart ripped into a bunch of little pieces time and time again! True love may exist, Ethan, but my true love doesn’t exist!"

She collapsed against the seat, drained of all color. Ethan pulled his hand away from hers and gripped the steering wheel.

"Theresa…I know you don’t believe that. If you did, you wouldn’t love that song."

Theresa looked away from him, even though she still couldn’t see him. What a fun day this was turning out be!

Ethan slowed the car down, the came to a stop.

"We’re here."
