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.


24. separated...

We all walked in one after the other and sat at the back of the classroom like always. And of course, I sat next to Ashton. The other 3 boys weren’t really talking much, they were all on their phones, texting their girlfriends. That’s right, all of 5 seconds of summer are taken. And what’s so great is that me, Sophie, Maddie and Sky have all become such great friends. We always hang out on the weekends, even though we all go to different schools. It’s just amazing how much we all have in common!


“Alright class. Today I will be assigning you each a partner for the rest of the year. You and your partner must come up with a speech of at least 5 minutes on what you have learnt about your partner. You will be marked on it, so try your hardest.” Our English teacher announced from the front of the room. I leant back in my chair, thinking ‘piece of cake. I know everything about Ash already.’

“Your partners will be drawn out of the hat at random. Partners may not be changed.” He said, whilst pulling out a hat, full of pieces of paper. He began pulling out pieces of paper at random, calling out the names written.


About half the class has already been called now, and I still haven’t heard my name. In starting to get worried. “Ashton is with….” There was a long pause before the teacher unfolded the piece of paper crumbled up in his hands. “Jessica.” Oh know. My heart sank. Jessica was the most popular girl in school, and in sure she’s bound to try something with my ash. At least he wouldn’t cheat on me. Would he? Jessica stood up from her spot, and began swaying her hips from side to side, gaining stares from nearly every guy in the room. The taps from her high heels hitting the floor became louder the closer she got to us. I just kept my head down.


“Excuse me. I need your seat.” She said. I lifted my head up and saw that she was actually talking to me.

“Ha are you serious?” I said stunned. Who does she think she is?

“Dead serious Hun.”

“Just because you dress like a whore doesn’t mean you get to act like one.” I snapped.

“Who are you calling a whore? At least in not a run down, ugly ass hoe like yourself.” Ouch. That hurt.

“Go away.” I mumbled.

“Well he is MY partner. I do have to sit with him.” She pointed out, giving me a great deal of sass.

I turned to look at Ashton, who gave me an apologetic look, but I just shrugged it off. I rolled my eyes before standing up and walking to where Jessica was previously sitting. I can’t believe he didn’t say anything!

“Emily is with…” my head shot up from the desk as I hoped I would get someone good. “Alex.” My eyes widened as I realised who he just said.

Alex As in the footballer.

As in the handsome Alex.

As in the Alex with abs!

Alex has been my crush for I don’t know, since the first grade!

Snap out of it Emily. You have a boyfriend!

I smiled widely as I was glad he was my partner though. We already knew heaps about each other because we used to be best friends throughout primary school. This is going to be a piece of cake. If Ashton gets a good looking girl, why can’t I have a good looking guy?


I turned around and faced Ashton, who glared at me, with a hurt look in his eyes. I guess he could realise how much I liked having Alex as my partner.


I stood up from my seat and headed across the room and sat where Alex sat. There was so spare seats so I just sat on his desk.

“Emily!” he cheered, giving me a big hug.

“Alex! It’s been so long since we’ve hung out! This is going to be so fun!” I cheered, taking in his scent before removing myself from the hug. What? He always smells so good.
