RILEY'S P.O.V.

Cameron hadn't called me. It was 3 in the afternoon. I decided to walk to his house, even though it was obvious he didn't want to see me, I needed an explanation.

I walked out and some minutes later I arrived to his house. I rang the doorbell and waited. I heard someone walk inside, so I knew he was there. About two minutes passed and Cameron opened the door, but the look on his face wasn't a look I was expecting. He had red puffy eyes and looked really worried. Before I could say anything, he hugged me. He hugged me so tight, and started sobbing. I was never good at comforting people, but I gave it a try.

"It's ok, don't worry, don't cry," I whispered in his ear as I softly tapped his back. I knew it wouldn't work, but I had to do something. I knew something had happened.

He sunk his face in my right shoulder, and I realised that he needed someone to hold. After he calmed a little, he wiped his tears.

"I'm sorry," he said.

"What for?" I asked with a sweet tone.

"You know, crying. And also not calling you, I know I should have..." He replied a little ashamed.

"It's alright," I said as I put my hand on his shoulder trying to make him feel better.

"Hey," he said, then cleared his throat, "you wanna come in?" he asked.

"Um, I don't know," I said, not sure about my decision. I didn't want to disturb.

"Please," he whispered, making he read his lips to be able to figure out what he had said.

I sighed. "Sure," I finally answered.

He smiled and we walked into his house. It was a really pretty house. We walked to the backyard and sat on a bench there.

"What's wrong?" I asked. I really wanted to know why he was crying.

"My mum's in the hospital," he said looking down.

"But she'll be ok, right?"

"We're not sure," he replied. Then I held his hand and tried to comfort him again.

"I'm sure she will be good, better than ever."

He smiled at me and then looked at our hands held together.

 

CAMERON'S P.O.V.

 

When I saw Riley, all I wanted to do is hug her. I wrapped my arms around her and squeezed her, while I started crying again. She made me feel better by tapping my back and whispering me not to cry, because everything would be okay. I wish that was the only option. Then I did as told, I stopped crying, and asked her to come in.

We walked to the backyard and sat on the little bench my granddad had given us years ago. As I was telling Riley what had happened, she held my hand. And, before I realised, I was felling quite better. She had something special, something that made me feel good.

After a while, the day started to get cloudy, so we decided to go inside and watch a movie. We were looking at the pile of movies in the shelf next to the TV. Suddenly, Adam started to walk down the stairs and looked at Riley with a puzzled look.

"Hey," he said still confused.

"Hey, I'm Riley," she walked towards Adam and held out her hand.

"I'm Adam," he replied as he shook her hand. They both smiled at each other and Adam asked, "What are you guys gonna watch?"

"We still don't know," we both answered at the same time, making us chuckle.

"Wanna join us?" Riley asked politely.

"No, thanks, I think I'm gonna take a nap," he said. "Nice meeting you," he told Riley.

"Nice to meet you too," she said smiling.

We decided to watch Ratatouille. I covered us with a blanket and I suddenly felt her head lean on my chest. I put my arm around her shoulder and we both watched the movie silently.

 

RILEY'S P.O.V.

 

We were watching the movie, when suddenly someone knocked on the door. Cameron paused the movie, and I sat up so he could go get the door. He stood up and opened it, and I saw his jaw fall to the floor. I walked to see who it was.

"What the hell are you doing here?" I heard.
