A thousand possibilities

Falling in love in the most unexpected way is the sweetest thing but breaking up without an explanation is uncalled for.

Jean grew up in London and loved living there but after experiencing an awful break up she decided to leave her home country to put herself back together. After two months, she received an invitation to her sister's wedding. Jean flew back to London unexpectedly falling in love with the best man not knowing he was her ex-boyfriend's mate.

20. I know what to do

Ryan POV

“What are you doing outside the classroom?” Mr. Schwartz asked

“I’m sorry Mr. Schwartz I can’t come to class today”

“Are your papers ready?”

I answered, “Yes sir. I passed the papers awhile ago”

“Okay then have a safe trip to California” I nodded and slowly walked away.

While walking down the hall I heard footsteps “Don’t worry Ryan. You still have me” I turned around and Ria is there.

“Just stay away from me Ria because of you I lost the most important person to me” She slowly walked towards my direction and looked directly at me “That means we can be together again and just go back to normal”

“Look Ria, you just have to accept that things will never go back the way they used to. Stop fooling yourself and move on” She was speechless. She didn’t move an inch which makes it the perfect time for me to leave.

I slammed the door of my room as soon as I got home. I buried my face in the pillow and reached for my pocket. I took my phone and called her but all I got was her voicemail. I turned it off and suddenly I heard my name. 

My father asked, “Have you finished packing your things?”

“Yeah I’ll do it now”

While I was packing, I thought of Jean. I didn’t want to leave without telling her so I called her again but then her voicemail picked it up. This is better than nothing.

 

Jean POV

School ended 15 minutes early because there is an emergency faculty meeting. I walked home alone while I was listening to music and suddenly my phone rang. I looked at it and it was Ryan. I let it direct to voicemail. I continued listening to my music and I had the urge to watch the sunset. I ran as fast as I could so I can watch it in the balcony. I rushed in but sadly I didn’t get to watch it.

Night came and the moon is here to welcome me. I didn’t know what to do. Ryan didn’t tell me the truth and even Ria. I can’t believe I was so stupid I didn’t even notice! I remembered Ryan’s call was directed to the voicemail. I played it and listened carefully,

Hi Jean, This might be the last time you’re going to hear from me so just listen. I never intended to hurt you, you know that. I guess I was scared of losing you. It’s my punishment for doing this and I understand if you don’t talk to me anymore.

About California, I was going to tell you but Ria went ahead and I didn’t get the chance to tell you. I’ll be moving to California after the prom to catch up for lost time with my family. I wouldn’t be coming back anymore. Just to let you know, I know about your intention of going back to London but I beg you to do one thing for me. If you want to fix this, tomorrow I’ll pick you up for prom. If you don’t go with me I’d take it as you’re choosing Harry and we’re officially over. Just this one time please do this for me. I really…

It was cut off. It’s better that way, leaving things hanging.

I went outside the house and sat on the patio. It’s very quiet and it calmed me. It even gave me time to think.

I grabbed my phone and the first thing that popped is a picture of Harry and in a second I hit the call button of my phone, “Hello?” I didn’t say anything but he continued, “Who’s this?” I was hurt. He deleted my number. I wanted to say something but it’s like a cat got my tongue. I ended the call before I could say anything. My heart shattered into a million pieces. It felt like my blood is streaming down and out of my body.

First it was Harry and now Ryan. Had anyone even taken me seriously?

I scanned through my phone and the pictures inside. I smiled while looking at it but as soon as I saw a picture of Harry once again my heart felt helpless. I decided to tweet, “Why is it so hard to forget you?”

In a second I got a reply from @ihearthjaerarnyrsotdyrliegsuez, “@JeanRodriguez maybe because goodbyes hurt the most when people leave without saying it”

“@ihearthjaerarnyrsotdyrliegseuz Hey! You’re the one who tweeted me last time. What do you mean?”

“@JeanRodriguez I know that someone was supposed to confess but it was too late” I was surprised. How come @ihearthjaerarnyrsotdyrliegseuz knows any of this? I DMed her or him or whatever this person is. 

“Who is supposed to confess?” I asked

“The person who gave up so many things for you to be happy”

“I don’t understand. Who gave up?”

“You can fake a smile and make the world believe that you’re fine but remember you can never fake your feelings”

At that point, I realized one thing. Maybe the reason why I only got together with Ryan is because I haven’t gotten the closure I wanted from Harry. I realized now that I wasn’t fully committed in my relationship with Ryan because I was still hanging on to a past that I didn’t want to let go.

 

THE NEXT DAY

 

Ria POV

Prom day! It’s time to show everyone what I am capable of. I decided to get ready 8 hours before the event. I went to the mall to visit my favorite salon. While on the way to the shop, one thing caught my eye and I just knew I have to buy it. Well it’s not for me, it’s for someone else.

I had my hair and make-up done by my stylist. I was picked up by my driver in the front gate and off to the house. I removed my gown from the closet and put it on. My pink gown had sequin details with a dash of silver and gold. To match my gown, I wore 5-inches silver pumps.

After getting ready, I went straight to school with 2 hours to spare. I needed to be early because I have to double check if things are ready or not. As soon I entered the gym, my eyes flickered and a smile appeared on my face. This night is going to be memorable.

 

Ryan POV

My mind is telling me to go but my heart stops me from doing it. Honestly, I’m scared to go to prom. I don’t know what will happen but I have to go. Jean is still my date and I have to show her that nothing happened. I put on my tux and waited for a few minutes before I pick Jean up from her house.

I knocked on her door feeling like my heart is going to jump out of my chest. My hands are sweating and my legs are shaking but the moment she opened the door, time froze. She looks so beautiful in her red backless gown. Her hair was all tied up like a bun with little strands falling down on the sides of her face.

“Hey” she said

“Well even though we got into a fight” I continued, “You’re still my ah um” I stuttered

“You did not have to pick me up”

“Yeah well, I wanted to” I smiled. “You look” I gulped for a second, “amazing!” Finally I completed my sentence!

To be honest, this night was different than what I expected. First, Ria and Jean made up. Ria gave some kind of a charm to add to their charm bracelet and just like that Jean forgave her. Well of course they talked about the issue before they finally smiled and embraced each other. Second, Ria and I finally ended things peacefully. She apologized for her actions and I apologized for hurting her.

Before prom ends I asked Jean for her last dance. I reached out for her hand while my head was facing the ground. I could not bear to see her face if she rejects me but she tilted my chin and said, “of course”

My smile reached the heavens when she accepted my offer. We were dancing waltz with a few couples in the dance floor. We were laughing and having fun like yesterday did not happen but I said it too soon. In a blink of an eye, Jean’s expression cannot be painted when I mentioned going to California. “Look Jean, I know long distance relationship is hard but” she cut me off.

She took my hand and pulled me out of the dance floor and into the hallway outside the prom venue. She sighed, “Ryan, your decision to go to California isn’t my responsibility. It’s yours”

She held my hand tighter, “I really appreciate your offer to get back together but this isn’t going to work out while you’re away”

Half of my heart fell, “We could do it if you could just give it a try” Tears started to form in my eyes, so does Jean

“Do you remember the day when Ria told me I was nominated for Prom Queen and you dragged her to the quadrangle because you were going to talk about something?” she continued, “That same day, when you were approaching me in the hallway you told me you love me”

I pulled her to my embrace, “I wasn’t lying. I meant it when I said I love you”

She buried her face in my shoulder and said, “The reason why I couldn’t say I love you too is because lately I’ve been thinking about the past that I didn’t properly closed” she continued, “I’m still in love with Harry”

I closed my eyes while hugging her tightly. My heart completely shattered into a million pieces. A few minutes later I asked, “Just tell me one thing, did you even loved me?”

She paused for a moment, “Someone will walk into your life and she’ll make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else”

"Someone will always be prettier, smarter and better but they will never be you"

"I wish I could be exactly what you're looking for" her hazel brown eyes met mine "but I will never be where you want me to be"

My face fell but I managed to pull through and ask her one last question, “Will you be happy with him?” 

"I don’t know. I’m just trying to follow my heart”

In a few seconds, I released her from my embrace, “One day, you’re going to remember me and you’ll hate yourself for letting me go”

She smiled; “I’m sure I will” she hugged me again and whispered in my ear, “Thank you”

Before she left, she flashed me her smile for the last time and waved goodbye.

 

Jean POV

After talking to Ryan, I went to the bathroom and changed clothes. From my evening gown, I put on my jeans, a v-neck shirt and grey vans. I walked out of the bathroom thinking how the hell am I going to go to the airport.

“Hey Jean!” he tossed me the keys to his car, “use mine”

I smiled, “how am I going to give this back to you?”

“That doesn’t matter” he smirked, “go before you miss your flight”

My smile widened. I ran towards him and hugged him. He twirled me around and I said, “Thank you for everything”

I felt him smile, “Don’t worry about it. Now go!”

I rushed towards the front door and shouted, “Have a safe trip to California!”

He shouted back, “you too!”

In the parking lot I searched for his Ford Focus metallic gray car and got inside. I feel bad for rejecting Ryan but it’s the best thing to do if I’m going to follow my heart.

I just feel crazy because it’s been a year since Harry and I have seen each other. I hope he didn’t fall for anyone else yet. I love Harry Edward Styles. It took a while before I realized it but now I know that I just want to be with him, to fall sleep in his arms feeling like nobody could hurt me. My feelings haven't changed and I want to tell him the truth. I don't how i'm going to tell him but it's worth a shot.
