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. :)

2. A very convincing homosexual

 

“Thank you so much. You didn’t need to do this.”

“But I wanted to. I couldn’t leave you outside.”

“I could’ve walked.” As soon as the words left my mouth, rain poured from the sky. Mol just looked at me as if to say “Really?”

“OK, maybe not. But thank you.”

It took us 10 minutes to get home, and I offered Mol a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, mango smoothie,  Yop!, or tropical juice. He accepted the tea.

“I’m sorry, there’s no milk.”

“It’s fine. You have a… nice apartment.”

I looked around at my apartment, which looked more like a swirling vortex of entropy than a home for a loving couple. I ran to the window.

“What?” he said.

“FLYING PIGS!”

He laughed and said,

“I mean, under all the, don’t be offended, crap, it’s nice.”

I laughed.

“Most of the ‘crap’ is Finn’s.” As soon as I said his name, I heard the latch. I froze.

“You’re gay.” I whispered.

“What?”

Finn stepped into the room and stepped sheepishly towards me, though as soon as he saw Mol he puffed out his chest and stomped towards me.

“Hi honey!” I ran towards him and he pushed me away.

“Who the hell are you?” he shouted. I hoped Mol knew what I meant. Turns out he did.

“Hi there, babes. I’m Lisa’s friend. Lisa had to work late, and I just moved here, so I was chatting to Jules about the neighbours.” I stifled a giggle, because Mol made a very convincing yet stereotypical homosexual.

“Oh, OK. Hi, I’m Finn.”

“Hi Finn. If you weren’t Jules’ boyfriend...” By now I couldn’t hold in my laughter. Finn looked very awkward and laughed nervously.

“Um, I’m sorry babe, I had to work late and then we had to go out for drinks because it was Steve’s birthday and my phone died.” Finn poured his heart out to me, and I knew he was telling the truth. He must have known I would be mad.

“It’s OK. Love you,” I reached up to kiss him and he recoiled slightly, but kissed me back, like it was the worst experience in the world. I wanted to confront him about it but as Mol was here I couldn’t.  After what seemed like a million years Finn’s phone buzzed.

“Sorry babe, I have to go.” And he slipped out the door. Mol and I exchanged strange looks. I thought his phone was dead.

“Um, I should go.” Mol standing pushing his chair away from the table.

“No, stay. Finn won’t be back for ages now.” I said, half to Mol, half to myself. He reluctantly sat down. I smiled.

“So, where do you live?”

“Just around the corner.”

“No! That’s so strange.”

“Yep. Um...” There was a lull in the already not so lively conversation. “I really should be going.”

I let him go, but not before giving him my number. I know it was risky, but Finn was lying to me. I had to get him back.

 

“Hello? Hi, It’s Julia. I was wondering if you wanted to get coffee? Tomorrow? At Costa? OK. Call me back.” I pulled the phone away from my ear, then put it back. “It’s Julia.” I hung up. What had I done?
