Why not us?

A story of how four friends spend their summer apart.


42. Esmeralda.

Esmeralda was packing her things into the suitcase on the bed that Lorcrian was sat on. Every time she put something in, he took it straight back out.

"Lor'." she groaned, laughing, putting the dress back in that he'd just hung up in the wardrobe again. "Stop."

"No." he said, like a sulky little child. "You stop packing."

"I have to pack, I'm leaving tomorrow, you heard your dad." she smiled, sadly. 

He smirked, bitterly. "My dad. My dad's an idiot. He just cast you, he didn't think about how shipping you off to New York would affect us, Es-"

"Lorcrian. Your dad was being kind and thoughtful." Esmeralda said, firmly. She felt disappointed. She was sad about having to leave Lorcrian as well, but she was hoping he'd be happy for her at least. He realised what she meant and sighed, exasperated. 

"I'm happy for you!" he promised, taking both of her hands in his. "So happy for you and so proud of you, Es... but I don't want you to go. Because come on, who are we kidding? I'm going to be here for a few more weeks and then I'll be back in England and you're going to be in New York and I hate it but we're-"

"Going to have to break up." she frowned, sadly. "But it feels wrong. We haven't grown away from each other yet."

"And to be honest, I don't think we ever would." he looked at her. "We're not ready but we should do it now. If we try to stay together, we're just going to fade away and that's going to be more painful for us both."

Esmeralda was the one looking like a sulky child now. "It's not worth it. I won't take the part-"

"Shhh." Lorcrian hushed her, pulling her into a hug. "Don't be silly. I'm just some guy that you went out with when you were a teenager, okay? Think of it like that."

"I don't want to." she mumbled, hugging him back.

He smiled sadly, pulling away and chuckled, shaking his head but his voice was thick as if he was going to cry. "You're my funny little Es. I'm gonna miss you."

She frowned, hugging him again. "I'm going to miss you as well."
