How could your best friend in the whole wide world, also be the love of your life? How could they be the person that makes your heart stop beating for a second every time they look into your eyes?

"All our young lives we search for someone to love, someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope, all the while wondering if somewhere and somehow there is someone searching for us." -The Wonder Years


9. Relationships

"Remember we all stumble every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand"- Emily Kimbrough

Weeks had passed and everything in my life was going great. Lena hardly said anything to me, only the odd huff or insult but I didn't care. Shaun loved being around Ricky, I think he loved it more than I did. Josh and Ricky were getting along okay, well, it had moved on from the nodding to 'hello' greetings which was a good thing. And Ricky and I were have a great time together.

Some days we would all hang out, Josh, Shaun, Ricky and Ricky's mates, and some days it would just be me and Ricky. I looked forward to them days more than anything. I was still shocked that Ricky was interested in me. It was coming up to nearly 3 months and he was as lovely as ever. Of course, everything that me and Shaun thought was sweet Josh had to have his opinion.

Mine and Ricky's relationship was going at a decent pace too. He respected me, and I loved that about him. He treated me well, he was always complimenting me, he was always taking me out or buying me things. He was the best boyfriend I could have ever of asked for.





"So, go on then Mace, tell us the juicy goss" Shaun giggled whilst him, me and Josh were snuggled up on Shaun's bed just after watching a film.

"Shaun, no, I don't wanna know what her and him get up to it's none of our business" Josh said.

"Exactly, thank you Joshua" I smiled at him.

"Aw come on, you'd tell your girlfriends and technically we are all you've got so spill" Shaun grinned.

I looked at them both, Shaun was sat grinning with eager and Josh was sat their pretending to fiddle with the quilt cover, I sighed.

"Okay, you really want to know?"

"Yes!" Shaun screeched, Josh sighed.

"We've done nothing" I smiled.

"Seriously?!" Shaun and josh said synchronised and both stared at me, mouths hanging open. I laughed.

"Seriously, were taking it slow, i mean sure we've kissed and stuffed but thats about it" I took a handful of popcorn and pretended to be interested in that so I could hide my blush.

"Wow" Josh said.

"Why's it so hard to believe? We've only been dating nearly three months."

"Well it's just, you know it's Ricky, he's not the type of guy to wait for things like that" Josh looked at me.

"Yeah, well, he respects me" I grinned.

"He must really like you" Shaun smiled.

"I hope he does" I laughed.




As I was walking to my bus stop with Josh the next day after a long, boring day at school, Josh turned to ask me something.



"You know what you said last night?"

"About what?"

"Well, about you and Ricky?"

"Oh" I paused "Yeah?"

"Is it true?"

"Of course, why?"

"I was just wondering" it went silent for awhile, you could have cut the atmosphere with a knife.

"Mace, just remember, don't do anything you don't want to do" Josh spoke up.

We'd reached my bus stop so I turned to look at him. I loved looking into his eyes when he was staring at me like be was, it made my stomach tingle.

"Josh, I know" I laughed "you sound like my mum."

"I know but I'm being serious. Its Ricky i know what he is capable of and if wouldn't surprise if he did. If he does pressure you into anything you don't want to do, please say no. He has no right to do things that your not comfortable with. Promise me?"

"Josh, listen, I know how to stand up for myself and he wont, but i promise. Stop worrying, okay?" I smiled and he exhaled loudly.

"Okay, okay il try, I just don't want you to get hurt."

Unexpectedly, I felt Josh pull me in for a hug and I burrowed my face into his chest like I always did. I felt him rest his chin on top of my head.

"Be careful" he kissed the top of my head and let me climb on my bus.

We both smiled and waved at each other. The weird thing was, I didn't want to leave Josh. I wanted to have been able to of stood their and hugged him forever. He was always so warm and I loved how i felt so protected and small in his arms. I didn't know how much he cared about me until now, but I loved it.
