Little Things

This is about a girl, Emily, and she applies for a part in her school play,Romeo and Juliet. When she finds out her crush has the part of Romeo, all she wants is to play Juliet, but when she's up against the most popular girl in the school, Laura, she thinks she has no chance. Or does she...?


16. You're So Beautiful..

He looked into Juliet's eyes. He started to drown, deep into her sparkling, warm brown eyes. "B-But.." He stuttered, "But you're so beautiful." He said softly, "Why are you wearing a mask?"

Juliet giggled a little, "It's a masked ball, remember?"

The boy shook his head in disagreement, "You should never wear a mask.. you're far too pretty." His right arm lifted towards her face. His soft, gentle fingers touched her cheek lightly, "So soft.." he whispered. 

Juliet tried to speak, but no words came They stared at each other for what seemed like hours, they both leaned in slowly, but then out of no-where, he stopped. Like he didn't want to kiss her.

But before she could say anything, the teacher's voice came, breaking the spell, "No words could describe how beautiful that was!" She pulled out a tissue from her bag and started wiping the tears from her eyes. "How did it feel, acting that scene out?" 

"It felt good. Like no-one else was in the room. Just us." Louis said.

"I felt that too." I nodded my head, even though no-one was looking at me. 

"And how did you feel about the way the scene ended?" She asked.

"It was fine." I smiled, but inside i was burning. I really liked him, i just wished he liked me the same back. I looked at Louis to see his reply.

He shrugged his shoulders, "Okay."

The teacher looked at us firmly, "Really? I thought you should have kissed at some point." She looked over to Louis who ran his hand through his hair.

"Oh?" He said casually. 

"I thought that, too." I nodded again. 

"You held back after a while Louis, how come?" She looked at him with a questioned face. "Remember, you're being Romeo, not Louis."

"I don't know, i guess i'm just not as good as Emily." He looked over at me, I turned towards him, shocked.

"You are! I believed you were Romeo." I said quickly.

"So did I" The teacher was glancing at each of us, every few seconds.

"I don't know then." He took a deep breath, "It's not that I didn't-" His gaze swept up to mine, "It's not that I didn't want to..."

My chest thumped for a second and I felt butterflies in my stomach. 

A slight beeping went off in the 'audience.'

"Who's is that?" The teacher glanced around, "And where is Laura?!"

"That's mine, sorry, i'll go and switch it off now." Louis said as he walked off stage.

"It should have already been switched off!" 

Louis picked up his phone and sighed.

"Who is it?" The teacher asked, seeing his reaction.

"Laura. She wants me to meet her on the roof." He looked at me, "I'm sorry, I gotta go." He turned around and ran off.

My heart sank. Why did Laura want to meet him? Why did she have his number? Is that why he didn't kiss me? Was he going out with Laura? All my breath sank out of me, like a deflated balloon. My sight turned blurry as the tears gathered up, ready to fall and i could taste a slight metallic blood-like in my mouth.
