I Won't Give Up *IN EDITING*

Falling for your best friend is always tough, but Emily always imagined it to be as perfect as relationships come. Holding hands, long walks on the beach, endless kissing. What she couldn't imagine was her relationship to contain fights, tears and heartbreak.

Will fate allow young Emily Downs to be in the perfect relationship she's always wanted, or take her down a dark twisted road full of cheating, hatred, lies and run aways.

Only time will tell for these two lovebirds.


13. Chapter XIII

Dear Ashton,


I am writing you this letter because it’s the only way I can contact you. You won’t answer any of my texts or calls, and you haven’t been turning up to school.


It’s been two weeks now I’m getting worried.


Right now I’m sitting at home, on the front porch, letting the tears slowly roll down my cheeks and onto the paper, as I struggle to find the words to write. This is actually so hard for me. But I need to tell you this. You need to know what’s going on in my head 24/7. You need to know how hard everything is for me right now. You need to know about my past.


So here we go, from the very beginning.




It all began 3 years ago, the beginning of high school. I wasn’t looking forward to it though, I had the roughest time during primary and secondary school. I was bullied. But despite my hatred towards myself and others, I had to keep my chin up and just be nice. Like what mum used to always say to me.


I walked through the long, crowded corridors on the first day as I tried to locate the whereabouts of my first class. Unexpectedly, I collided into someone and all my books fell to the ground. This small figure immediately bent down to try and pick up all of my fallen supplies, and gave it back to me. And from that moment, the moment I looked into those beautiful brown eyes, I knew I was in love.


From light chatter, we figured out our first class was together so we sauntered and bantered all the way to the Math room. Despite the fact we were late, and we were told off, we just laughed.


One semester had passed and Calum and I were the best of friends.

We were inseparable.

We did everything together.

Hung out together every day.


One day however, after school, he led me out onto the oval and we both sat underneath a huge oak tree, full of bright green leaves to cover us with shade. He told me he had been thinking a lot about us and that he wanted to be known as “Emily’s boyfriend” I said that I wanted to hold his hand all the time so we started dating from then on.


19-07-2010 was the date.


Long story short, we dated for two years. He was my first for everything. First kiss, first boyfriend, first date, and he had taken my virginity.


It was a magical time. But after our two year anniversary, he dumped me. I now realise it was for the best, we both were going through rough patches in our lives. However back then, I stopped going to school for a whole month and couldn’t bare to look at any pictures we took together. After that, I returned to classes but we ignored each other.




That was until he joined the band. I thought if he was starting new, why shouldn’t I? So I grew the guts to start talking to him again. And then I met you and everything was going great. I had my best friend back, as well as 3 new ones also.


But lately, more like these past two weeks, I noticed Calum had been acting really distant from me. So that was what that day was about. When I awoke that afternoon, Calum left immediately whilst Luke and Michael remained watching the movie. I found him out on the balcony looking through all the old photos of us when we dated, and memories came flooding back.


For the both of us.


I brought him up into my room so we could talk, we needed to talk about our past. He expressed his feelings, as did I. I didn’t intend for us to kiss. We didn’t mean for it to happen, and believe me I want to be with you, but I can’t just forget about the 2 years I spent with Calum.


That’s what the tweet was about.

That’s who the tweet was about.

He was the only band member I’ve been with, it was just a long time for a young teenager.


I can understand why you were mad, but all I want is to know if you’re safe.


I need to see you Ashton.


You need to know how much I actually love you. You mean absolutely everything to me and I feel like I’m dead inside because I’m apart from you. What I did was a mistake and if I could take it back I would. I don’t want to be with Calum. I want to be with you. You’re the one who understands me and is the one who gets me the most. When I’m down you’re always there to cheer me up. I care so much about you Ashton, it’s unbelievable. I hope one day you can forgive me and we can go back to how we were. Because that’s all that I want.


Please just call or text me, I’m worried sick about you.


Love from Emily xx
