We met through wires

Julia Longmere is waiting outside the cinema. Her 'long time' boyfriend doesn't turn up. Her wires tangle. She meets Mol. Everything changes.

There's a bit of bad language, but that's about it. Enjoy. Also, if you like it, or if you don't, tell me why in the comments section. Thank you. You may now: Enjoy. :)

1. Pretty but impractical

 

“Where are you? I’ve been here for an hour and a half. I didn’t see the film. It would have been shit anyway. You know I hate horror. I should’ve chose- in fact, I don’t care. Just… call me back.” I sat down on the steps of the Odeon entrance. I routed in my bag for my iPod. When I found it, I tried to unwind my headphones.

“Wires?” I looked up expectantly. It wasn’t him. You could never expect Finn to show up for anything. He probably went out for drinks. On our anniversary. Our 6 month anniversary. 6 months is a long time, especially with my blurred past with relationships.

There was a man stood above me. He had rich brunette hair which was half quiffed, half flipped like Justin Bieber. His eyes were the same as his hair, a deep brown. They were the kind of eyes that didn’t look natural, the colour was too rich, the pupil looked like a black hole, ready to suck me in. His skin was a pale cream, like parchment. My mouth went dry. No-one talks to me {that I don’t know. I do have friends}.

“E-e-e-erm. YES! Tangled! Idon’tknowwhyIhavethesestupidheadphonesImeantheyarealwaystangledandIcanneverundoth-” He picked up my headphones and squatted next to me.

“I can undo them. It happens to me too. I don’t know why I don’t buy wireless headphones. Mol.”

“What?” I blurted rudely.

“My name. Mol.”

“What a weird name.” I blurted out again. I couldn’t control what I was saying. He looked a bit hurt, but his smile came back.

“I wasn’t born Mol. It may be stupid, but it’s better than Morris.”

“Suppose so. I’m so sorry. I don’t know wh-” And that’s when I burst into tears.

“Are you okay? What’s wrong? It’s okay, I know it’s a weird name but it doesn’t matter. I’m not offended.”

I looked up at him and wiped my nose with my sleeve, now completely uncaring of what I looked like.

“My boyfriend hasn’t turned up. We were supposed to watch Saw but he hasn’t turned up and he hasn’t called me back and I don’t know what’s happened to him.” I felt an arm curl round my shoulder and didn’t care what it looked like if Finn turned up.

“I’m sorry.” I wiped my face again. “I’m Julia.” I outstretched my hand, then realised why he recoiled and offered the snot-free hand. I laughed, and so did he.

“It’s fine. Can I walk you to your car?”

“I don’t have one. Finn was supposed to pick me up.”

“Finn…?”

“Boyfriend. I’ll get the bus.” I routed round in my bag for my purse. It wasn’t there. Shit. I expressed this last sentiment out loud.

“What?”

“My purse. It’s gone.” He offered to help me find my purse. We looked round the ticket counter, the bathroom {me on my own}, even screen 7. Nothing.

“I’ll take you home if you want. Oh, sorry. Finn.”

“Please. I was the girl at school that people joked about having crushes on. He won’t get jealous. I’ll just say you’re Lisa’s friend.”

“Lisa?”

“Lisa’s my best friend.”

“Ok.”

We stood around for a second, awkwardly. Then he clapped his hands together and said

“So, where do you live?”
