Almost Is Never Enough

"Don't worry I will catch you if you fall" he smiles.
"Even if I fall in love with you?" I ask him
"Only if you promise to catch me too" he says softly in my ear.


6. Hearts On Fire

I take a cab, not looking back once…because I know if I did, he would be in the other end of the street with his arms wide open, looking at me with a beautiful smile, and those shiny green orbs and I would be the ignorant girl that would run to his embrace and forgive him immediately.

But I just couldn’t bring myself to even look at him. I feel so ashamed of what he did. But then again why did he do it?

My thoughts are interrupted by the taxi driver asking me where to…

“Two blocks from here, the High School please…” I say with a fragile tone of voice…placing my back against the cold seat watching the cloudy weather outside…

It’s strange how things can come and go so easily, how I someone can be foolishly starting to like someone and they give you a reason not to…

I’m not one of those people that believe in destiny, or ‘meant to be’ stuff…Well when Alex broke up with her last boyfriend she told me something that I didn’t forget…I remember that I asked her why she broke up with him, she simply smiled and said ‘When you love something set it free, if it comes back it’s meant to be’ I didn’t really understood those words back then but I do now…maybe what me and Harry need is to be apart, not together. Maybe I should start forgetting what I’m feeling. I don’t know.

As soon as we pull over I glance at the white and horrible building, taking a step inside it...walking to my locker where Alex was already waiting for me for at least 5 minutes…

“Soooo, how was coffee with Harry? Where is he? What’s up?” she asks everything so fast that I’m just able to smile weakly….

“Harry, he, I don’t know where he is…We had an argument and I don’t think I want to talk to him again…” I say not looking at her, making her sign to move from my locker door and grabbing my stuff…

“Why?” she huffs and rolls her eyes.

And now I look at her and tell her everything, tell her about what happened on the telephone, the date, the coffee shop and even told her that I maybe have feelings for him.

She looks at me with a wide smile and her gorgeous brownish eyes. Wait. This look. I know what she’s thinking.

“Emma you need to understand that Harry was jealous of that guy, and he was trying to protect you from that guy, he was trying to show you that he cares about you. He may not show you by giving you flowers or a beautiful necklace. This is his way of showing that he likes you, ok?”

I’m forced to say yes and smile weakly, accompanying her to the classroom where I seat alone at the back…


45 minutes of class were already gone and Harry was nowhere to be seen, I was so scared that he’d done something stupid. I don’t know. And I was really worried.


The bell rings, and Harry haven’t still appeared, I grab the books from my desk and not knowing what I was doing I let them fall on the ground. As I was catching them I feel this big shadow above me and smile at the ground thinking it was Harry, but as soon as I get up…My gaze locks with Ashley’s.

“Yes?” I ask bored

“Oh you don’t yes me.” She snaps, making a movement with her blonde hair.

“Come on Ashley, I don’t sincerely have time for your bullshit” I answer, making her look at me with a disbelief look on her face.

“Well I don’t want to be near you too, so let’s make this quick…stay away from Harry” she says while swallowing her gum.

That’s when I couldn’t take it anymore and I start laughing like an idiot. I don’t know why I was doing it, but I just was, but I guess she wasn’t joking. So I settled down and answered back.

“Look Ashley, Harry’s my friend ok? I can’t do that sorry, so excuse me…” I say, moving her shoulder to go through the door but she doesn’t let me…and instead of answering back, she slaps me hard and starts hurting me, and I don’t know why I was letting her do all that, I don’t know why, for the first time, I was scared of someone like her.

But not for long because I just feel her weigh leaving my body, and in replacement I see someone I was waiting for a long time, and who I was worried sick about, the boy that I have feeling for since the day I layed eyes on him. Harry.
