It's Cool, We're Just Friends.

Rebecca has a best friends, his name? Austin. Her boyfriend? Cody. Lately Cody has been acting weird. Rebecca also known as Becca, lives in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Austin and Rebecca have been bestfriends since pre-k. Austin's girlfriend, Jessica, has been gone for a month for school. This is the story about two friends, who stick together through everything, and when I say everything, I mean absolutely everything.


1. Just Friends

Rebecca, that's my name. You can call me Becca though. Yes, my best friend is a guy, but don't tell Dakota that. Dakota is my best female friend. Now,don't get me wrong, I love her to death, but Austin and I, we're just... Close. Okay? And No, we are not dating. I have a boyfriend, and he has a girlfriend in fact. Cody. Brown straight hair, and green eyes. Austin's girlfriend, Jessica. Black long curly hair, brown eyes. Complete opposite of what kind of girl he told me he likes. He said he likes Blonde straight haired, blue eyed girls. Kind of weird considering that's basically me.

Marie: Hi kids, welcome home.

That's my mother. Short brown hair. Brown eyes and perfect teeth.

Austin: Thanks mom.

Austin, mom, and dad, are all close. They are basically Austin's parents too. Austin's father died when he was five. It was really sad actually. Now his mother raises him with the help of my parents. Haha, anyways back to the situation.

Becca: Mooom, we're going to the library later. Kay?

Mom: Okay kids.

Austin took my hand and ran me upstairs to my bedroom and we fell back on the bed.

Austin: Okay, so remember when we were like 7 or something and we broke your fan?

This is what we usually did after school, we hung out and went over old times.

Becca: Hahaha, that was the funniest thing ever, my parents faces.

I started cracking up. Austin did the same.

Austin has brown, curly hair. He had beautiful hazel-greenish eyes. He has perfect teeth (due to his old braces) and he is always wearing snapbacks.

Becca: I don't want to graduate this year.

I turned on my side and looked Austin in the eyes.

Austin: Hey, I'll still meet up with you, even if we're all the was across the United States. I'll always have time for my Best Friend.

I nodded at him and smiled. I really wanted to cry though. I know it's only the beginning of the school year, but honestly, I don't want to lose Austin. He's my best friend.

I heard a phone and the ringtone 'As Long As You Love Me' came on.

Becca: It''s Jessiccaaa!

I poked his chest and he smiled. He loved this girl more than anything.. probably more than me.It hurt a little bit to think that, but I brushed it off.

Austin: Helloo? How are you princess? ...Why can't I call you that?... What? That makes no sense Jess, that's no excuse. Sure.. whatever. Another freaking month?.... Jess- This is really getting annoying not being able to see you.

He sat up and gave me the 'one minute' sign. He got up and walked out the the bedroom. Thanks for leaving me alone Austin. Then I felt a buzz in my back pocket. I pulled out my phone and answered it.

Becca: Hey baby.

It was Cody.

Cody: Hey- um, I can't make the date.

Becca: Cody, it's in like half an hour. Now you're telling me?

Cody: Well Baby- One second.

I heard him whisper something, I wasn't supposed to hear, he mumbled 'where's the condem, one second'

Becca: Cody, can I come over  now then?

Cody: I'm not home babe.

Becca: Then where the hell are you?

Cody: Uh.. the library..

Becca: Really?

Cody: uh, yea...

Becca: Well have fun having sex with some slut at the library.

And with that I hung up. I brushed my hand back through my hair. I looked up and Austin was leaning up against the door frame looking at me.

Austin: About time you got rid of him.

Becca: You're just jealous cause he got all my attention.

I stuck my tongue out at him and he grabbed it.

Austin: If you would like to keep your tongue, keep it in your mouth.

Becca: let go!

It didn't come out right since he was holding my tongue.

Austin: Say Austin is the bestest friend in the whole world who walked this earth. Oh, and he's sexy.

Becca: Never.

Austin: Say it!

Becca: Austin is the bestest friend in the whole world who walked this earth. Oh, and he's sexy.

He let go on my tongue and then wiped his hand on my shirt.

Austin: I know, I know, i am pretty sexy..

I looked at him and just laughed.

Becca: Hows the girlie.

I nudged his with my elbow and raised my eye brows.

Austin: She's not coming back for awhile.. which sucks...

Becca: You're stuck with meeee!

Austin: I really need new friends.

Becca: Fine, go get some. See if they're as nice as I am.

Austin sat next to me. I scooted away from him and he wrapped his arms around me and pulled me back to him.

Austin: I was kidding. I can't live without my Becca boo!

Becca: No no, you want new friends.

Austin: Noo, I need my Becca...

He flipped me so I was laying on the bed.

Becca: No, you don't love me anymore.

I stucck my tongue out at him. He knew I was messing with him but it was still pretty funny.

Austin: REBECCA!


I smiled at him and he grinned back at me.


After our play fight, instead of going to the library, we went to the park.

Austin and I sat on the swings. I made him push me.

Becca: you're pretty bad at this...

Austin: You, hush.

He stopped me.

Becca: Hey!

Austin: heeeyy!

Becca: Not what I meant.

I stood up and pushed Austin. He pushed me back, I almost fell but he pulled me closer in enough time.

Lady: Excuse me?

I looked over and it was Dakota.

Beccca: Kota!

Austin let me go and I gave her a hug.

Dakota: Are you guys dating?

I could feel Austin's eyes on me. He said nothing. So I did.

Becca: No, We're just friends..

Dakota: Doesn't look like it.

Becca: You know he has Jess, and I had Cody.

Dakota: Had?

Becca: Cheater.

Dakota: That little-

Becca: It's fine, i'm better without him.

I don't know why, but Austin wasn't being as bubbly as usual.


We were now walking home. Austin was staying the night like he usually did on Fridays.

Becca: What's the matter?

Austin: What do you mean?

He smiled at me and I didn't smile back.

Becca: Don't play stupid, something's wrong, you're not acting like yourself, something is bugging you.

Austin: It's nothing, I swear.

Becca: Austin, pleaassseee?

We stopped walking. I rested my hands against his chest.

Becca: Please tell me.

He rested his hands on my hips and pressed his lips against my forehead. I rested my head against his chest.

Becca: Please..

Austin: Remind me in like, a month, okay?

Becca: Promise you'll tell me then?

Austin: I absolutely promise.

I looked up at him and smiled. We continued to walk to my house and when we got there we put on the movie 'Warm Bodies'.

Austin: That was good, but I, am tired.

Becca: Fine leave me here.

I rolled on to my other pillow. We had been watching the movie in my bedroom since my parents were watching television in the livingroom.

Austin: Well, i am sorry, i'm tired.

Becca: Whatever you loser, go to your room and sleep.

Austin stayed in the guest room, but we called it his room.

Austin: Fine, only a little longer.

I clapped and smiled at him.

~ ~ ~
It's been about a month since that night. Austin and I keep getting closer. It's to that oint, that when he's gone I miss him so much. Austin was coming over in about five minutes. That's great! Except for the fact I just woke up. Also for the fact Jessica is coming over later. Don't get me wrong, Jessica is my friend, but I feel like I'm a third wheel. I wasn't even going to bother to get out of bed.

Withing another minute I heard my door open.

Austin: Aww, look she's asleep... WAKE UP.

I jumped at the loudness.

Becca: You're a jerk!

Austin: Haha, come here.

I stood up and walked closer to him.

Austin: What I don't get a hug?

Becca: I don't think you deserve one jerk.

AUstin: Pleaaseee? For your bestest friend!

I walked over to him and gave him a hug.

Beccca: Austin?

Austin: Whaaat?

Becca: you, you told me to ask you in a month about why you were acting that way that night... it's been a month.

His smile faded.

Austin: I forget.

Becca: You promised Austin.

He had me sit down first.

Austin: Okay, that day... I do kind of forget, so bare with me.

Becca: Why are you acting nervous, i'm Becca.

He smiled and I smiled back.

Becca: And?

He paused for a minute.

Austin: That day, that was when Dakota asked if we were dating, I didn't say anything, because I knew the answer, and when you said the answer, it kind of stung, I guess, I just wanted the answer to be different...I wanted the answer to be yes, we're dating... and a month ago, I thought that I would've made you mine by now..

I was shocked. Austin, actually liked me as more than a friend? This had to be fake. I looked at him and he was staring at me.

Becca: Austin, I feel the s-

The bedroom door flew open. There was Jessica. Perfect as always.

Jessica: Austin!

She ran over to him and gave him a huge kiss.

Ouch, that one hurt.

Jessica: Thank you for watching my boy, Becca.

Becca: Well, of coarse I would.

Austin's eyes were still on me.

Becca: Can I get you something to drink?

Jessica: Water would be fine..

Becca: Sorry for looking like this, I just woke up..

Jessica: It's okay.

I stood up and walked down the stairs. As I was getting the water for her my mind started running over the situation that had just happened.

Austin confessed his love for me.

I confessed my love for him.

His girlfriend walks in.

He probably regrets what he said now.

I was interrupted by the cold water hitting my hand. I pulled the glass away. I set it on the table and pulled out a napkin.

Austin: Becca?

I turned around and there was Austin. Flawless. Looking directly at me.

Becca: Mhmm?

I turned to the garbage and threw away the napkin after wiping my hands. I look up and he's standing so close to me I could feel his breath hit my face. I closed my eyes, and before I knew what was happening, his lips covered mine. I couldn't help but wrap my arms around his neck and pull him closer. I pulled away and he stared in my eyes.

Austin: I,I love you.

Becca: I love you too.

You could hear Jessica yelling from the bedroom.

Jessica: You find her Austin?

He pulled my body closer to his.

Austin: Yea, just a minute.

He looked back at me and brushed my unbrushed hair out of my face.

Austin: I promise, i'll fix this.

I nodded and rested my head against his chest for a second then moved away from him.

Austin walked upstairs and I waited a few minutes before I went up. They were talking though, so I just listened. It's wrong I know, but it's my house.

Jessica: Why are you worrying so much about her? Is there something going on between you two?

Austin: No baby, she's just my best friend, so I worry.

Jessica: Well, I think you two should stop spending so much time together now that i'm back.

Austin: But, she's my best friend.

Jessica: I'm your girlfriend, and I need some Austin time too.

Austin: I know baby..

Jessica: So will you stop being with her so much?

Austin: I'll stay away from her for as long as you want me to.

That actually made my heart hurt. I wanted to cry.

Jessica: Good.. but Austin?

Austin: Yes Princess?

Jessica: Do you love her more than me?

Austin: Absolutely not, she's just a friend, you're my baby though... you're more important than anybody.

That felt like he just ripped my heart out. No matter how much I wanted to cry, I smiled. I wasn't going to leet either of them know how I felt. I shook off my sadness and walked into the bedroom.

Austin stared at me and I looked away. I handed Jess the water and sat the farthest from Austin I could get.

Jessica: Thank you, was everything okay? It took awhile.

Becca: Yea.

I looked at Austin he had a hurt look in his eyes.

Becca: Just stupid stuff with my family.

Jessica: Oh, well I hope it all works out.

Becca: Yea, probably isn't though.

I looked at Austin and he looked like he was close to tears.

Becca: But yea, you guys should go get some time together, since you two just reunited.

Jessica: Oh, uh sure. Austin, wanna hang out at your place?

Austin: Uh, yea.

His eyes were on me. I could tell he knew I felt hurt, and empty.

Jessica practiaclly dragged him out. Hand in hand. Their lips touched once again before they left.


Nothing was going to change between Austin and I. Actually, it was, we weren't going to be friends. I wasn't going to let him close to me. He has Jessica, she is more important then anybody else, as he would say. I was going to stick to famale friends now. Speaking of female friends, Dakota and I were walking down the street to the park. I told her everything that happened yesterday.

Dakota: So he just, lied to your face?

Becca: i don't know which one of us he lied to, but it's done with, i'm going to spare him the pain of telling me he can't hang out, i'm just not going to answer his calls or anything.

Dakota: Oh, has he called yet?

Becca: Try like fifty thousand times.

Dakota: Wow, screw-up

Becca: Yea,i'm just done with guys.

I pulled on my coat so it was tighter around me. I heard a beep and I looked back and it was the one and only Austin.

Dakota: Wow, beetle juice..

I felt arms around me. I turned around and saw a red-faced Austin.

Austin: Becca, i've been trying to get a hold of you for awhile.

Dakota; I'm gonna leave you two alone...

She walked away and I looked up at Austin.

Becca: I know.

I pushed him away.

Austin: Becca?

Becca: I was sparing you the pain of telling me you can't hang out with me cause of Jess, oh and I was sparing you the energy about lying to me about how you love me. How you love me more than anybody... how im more than a friend. I know the truth Austin, I know you only think of me as a friend, I know you love her more than me.

I looked up at him with tear filled eyes and he was staring at me.

Austin: N-No, that's not true.

Becca yes it is! Because you said it yourself, I know you Austin, you don't lie...

Austin: I don't lie to you. I had to lie to her. Becca, you're the one I need.

Becca: I don't need the excuses to stay friends with me Austin. I'll be your friend, nothing more, not a best friend, in fact I'll just be an aquatince. You won't even know im here.

I wiped my tears away with my jacked sleeve.

Austin: But I want to be more than that...

Becca: You have Jessica... just, don't worry about me.

Austin: Becca-

Becca: Just, please just be happy okay?

Austin: I can't be happy without you.

Becca: Just try okay? Maybe in time, this will be fixed, but don't count on it Austin.

I walked the opposite way of him. This was goodbye for now. Maybe for awhile actually..
