“Alex, I dare you to tell me your deepest and darkest secret without hiding anything” I blurted out.

His smile was suddenly overshadowed by an unfathomable expression and it got me startled, as though I asked him to do the most dreadful thing in the world. But, I wasn't about to change my mind, I wanted to hear it, after all, that was the purpose of the game.

“Are you sure you want to hear it?” he asked, still wearing the awkward expression.

“Yes, I want to hear it, all of it!” 

Alex glanced at me, then looked away. I rested my gaze on him, waiting eagerly to finally know something about him.

“I was one of the unfortunate students whose blood was used to lay the foundation of a certain building,”

The pillow I held suddenly fell from my hand and I looked into his eyes to hear him say that he was just kidding thankfully, he said something that brought my spirit back to my body.

“It worked. You looked awfully frightened. That was a joke. I just wanted to see if you get easily scared,” he said and laughed so loudly that I had to join him.

“Don’t do that to me again,” I picked up the pillow and threw it at him.

“Fear fear. I actually thought nothing scares you, hahaha”

“Okay, now that you know that I get easily scared, can we go back to the game, please?”

“Fine. My secret... I wouldn't call it a dark secret because it isn't that deep. I actually used to masturbate. That's it”

“Used to? Does it mean you no longer do it?” I asked him.

“Not when I have seen someone my heart craves for”

I wanted to ask him who it was that his heart craved, but he interrupted, reminding me that we were playing a game, so, I had to go on with the game.

“I choose truth,” I said

“Do you have feelings for me?”

This was a hard question for me. Since I was falling for him, I did not want to be the first to show or admit it, so it wouldn't look like I was desperate or something. I was not a good liar, so instead of answering his question, I looked away.

Alex drew closer to me and something melted inside of me. My heart began to pound and I wanted him even closer. As if he read my mind, he came so close that if I lifted my face, I could kiss him.

My body froze so that I could not move and I began to feel the exact way I felt the previous night when the invisible being made love to me. The smell of his deodorant was engulfing. He lifted my face with his hand so that I faced him.

“You haven't answered my question,” he said, almost arresting my lips with his. His breath was fresh.

“I don't want to play the game anymore,” I blurted out.

“Why? Because you don't want to admit that you have fallen head over heels for me?”

“See, I still don't know much about you, so it would be awkward to be intimate with you...”

“Okay, what else do you want to know about me?” he asked.

“I want to know where you stay. I want to know your friends, best friends, roommates, or something. I want to follow you to know your place, we have all day” 

He shifted backward and I felt a little bit relieved. I was losing myself and if he had taken any more steps, I would have found myself helplessly in his arms I didn't want that to happen...at least, not until I got to know more about him.

“I don't have friends...”

“But you have an apartment, don't you?”

“The thing is...”

“Come on, Alex. I don't mind if your place isn't as fine or big as mine. I just want to know where you stay and I'm bored, I want to stroll. So, let's go to your place”

Alex did not look happy, but after a while, he forced a smile on his face and said “It’s fine. Let's go”

I locked the door and we walked down the street. I enjoyed the evening breeze and talked excitedly to Alex, while he just nodded.

We walked for about thirty minutes before we entered a bush path...to be continued.
