The truth is always harsh

The history starts off with 2 best friends fishing, where as one of them (Jake) has fallen in love with a girl from their class. Her name is Emma, and she's quite popular among her fellow students, but mainly hangs out with her friend Sophia. Even though Sophia is a freshman, and you 3 are juniors at the high school.

-This is first time i write in here, and i hope for some nice feedback! - Alcohol will be mentioned and sex is in the context!

6. Chapter 6

 

Next morning I wake up, and I’ve done some thinking from last night. I’ll ask Jake if we could go on another double date. After my daily morning routine, I knock on his door and I can hear him coming. He opens the door, but only slightly. When I was about to ask him if he’d like another double date, he hushes at me and opens the door a little bit more, so I can see Emma is laying in his bed too, asleep… He grins and closes the door ever so slightly again. I whisper this time and asks if him and Emma would like another double date with me and Sophia. He nods and closes the door. I don’t know why I even asked him; maybe I should’ve just asked Sophia out instead. But I don’t know if I could, I don’t even know if she wanted to go out with me. Even if we we’re alone out yesterday, that was only for shopping, right? Girls are so confusing, though I’d grown to really like Sophia.

After school Jake, Emma and I are heading towards Sophia’s class, only to find her packing up her stuff, alone, while all the other freshmen are talking and having fun, she’s alone. It’s only now I noticed how alone she actually is. It saddens me, but I’m happy I might be one of the persons that are making her happy. She smiles when she sees all 3 of us, suddenly barging in. Emma is the first one to speak, but I ask her, if she wants to go out with me again accompanied by Emma and Jake too. This time she’s much straighter forward, I guess I am too. She smiles and tells me she’d love to have another wonderful memory with us all going out. I find it a funny way to express herself with, “another wonderful memory.” Emma starts talking again, while we follow her out of the class room. Jake and I look like an escort for her, we’re not really talking that much, and I guess we can both feel it. Happiness.

All of us are walking and talking in the city, with no real place to go. Our minds are the ones guiding us and I find it funny we end up at the Cinema, stops for a while, and walk to the park. Emma tells us that this where Jake told her, how he felt, it’s here he confessed his love. Jake blushes, but Emma keeps spitting out details, telling us how nervous she could feel he was. Emma says she feels nostalgic coming here again, Jake not so much, he says he was about to faint, his heart would race so fast he couldn’t think straight, that moment, he asked, everything slowed down and he was sure he was about to drop dead. But then Emma told him she felt the same way. She jumped off the swing, and turned around to face Jake, he was still numb after her confession. She walked towards him and kissed his cheek and then Jake woke up. He held Emma close, with his arms tangling around her waist and pulling her closer, so he could kiss her back. Sophia and I are both drawn into their story. I guess we arrived a little bit later, all that had happened while Sophia and I were eating, or rather, while Sophia was eating and I was with her. The rest of the time, Jake and I are talking, while Sophia and Emma are talking about all their girlish stuff I guess. I guess we both needed to talk, Jake and I, we haven’t really had the chance. I tell him how I feel about Sophia. He’s very supportive and his word of advice usually gives me courage, but this time it’s like nothing really works. I guess I have to figure it out on my own, like Jake did. Even though this was meant as another date, I think it was more of a great time we had, like friends, though Emma and Jake are more than that. Jake and I got to talk, and I was happy with that.

Jake and Emma kisses goodbye and that leaves me and Sophia alone, in front of the girl dorm, Jake went ahead, he’s probably tired or he didn’t finish his homework yet. Sophia invites me to her room, tomorrow, for dinner. I happily accept it, and we hug. I can smell her scent, it’s relaxing somehow, and I feel relieved in her arms. I guess neither of us wanted the hug to end, but I pull myself away and tell her goodnight. I couldn’t do anything fancy, like Jake did, and just tell her how I felt. Sigh… I can hardly sleep; I think about Sophia, I can’t wait for tomorrow either. I don’t feel like reading a book either. It would be nice to have her, like Jake has Emma. In my deep thoughts I somehow manage to fall asleep.

The next day, I tell Jake she invited me over, he winks and tells me to just go for it, do what feels right. Also, he tells me I could get her a gift, like a hostess gift. I take his advice, and head for the city.

I’ve never looked for a gift before, but I guess something from a souvenir shop will do, what is Sophia even into? I know her, but I don’t know her that well. This might be tougher than I thought…

Its afternoon and I still haven’t found anything. I have to head back soon; I have to take a bath before I go to see Sophia. I find a little booth at the corner of one of the shops I tried. There’s a necklace with a green pendant. It reminds me of Sophia’s eyes. The booth owner notices my curiosity and takes it down and hands it to me, so I can have a better look at it. He tells me it’s a real emerald piece, so it’s worth a great deal. More than I can afford. I sigh when he names the price. 500 Pounds. He asks what it’s for, and I tell him I like this girl, and it reminded me of her eyes. The shop owner asks me if I have the money to buy it. I tell him I don’t. He tells me I can get it for 250 now and pay the rest, next time he sees me. I enlighten at his gracious offer, I immediately handle the money and he laughs for himself and tells me love has no price. I thank him a billion times and promise I will have the money next month. I can’t believe I was this lucky, yet I need more luck, if I’m going to tell Sophia how I feel about her.
