Chapter 4 - Here At Last - Ema

 

 The small apartment Taree and I shared was packed with people - all talking and trying to figure out where she could be. I called her again, the fourth time in the last ten minutes. Standing alone in the hallway, I leave another recorded message. “...I’m sorry Taree, can you just call me back and let me know you're okay..I'm really worried about you and so is everyone else.” Hanging up and turning around - I come face to face with Logan.

He’s blocking my view to the living room. He reaches out, brushing his fingertips over the back of my hand.

“It’ll be okay.” He said to me, but I honestly didn't believe it.

“I shouldn’t of left her.”

“You couldn’t of known that she'd run off…” He started to say.

"I know that, it's just that.." I paused for a minute, biting my lip, “maybe this is karma telling us to back off.”

“They’re perfect together. You see it, I see it.She just doesn't know it yet.”

“Logan, what if something happened to her?”

“Nothing has happened, she’ll be here...”

“She’s here!” Carlos called.

I dashed past Logan - past everyone. Opening the door. Taree was just getting out out of a car a guy was driving.
"Thanks" Taree yelled as the car drove off.

Ema glared at the guy in the drivers seat before glancing back at Taree, "You can't just accept rides from crazy strangers, Taree!"

Taree didn't say anything, just glared at me.

"Don't give me that look Taree, you know you were in the wrong for going home with him.." Ema crossed her arms over her chest as Logan and James came out the front door with sympathetic looks on their faces.

"Don't you dare say this is on me. You are the one who left me alone. So, I found others to hang out with. What's the big deal?"

"The big deal is that you could have gotten hurt or kidnapped or something ... And I told you I could of dropped helping Logan to come and get you - he wasn't that important."

Logan began looking offended, "I am right here."

For the first time Taree looked over at the guys her eyes landed on James, she quickly looked; back at me glaring.

"I told you I am fine. Alive, I'm not hurt by anyone but you." She started to walk off but I cut her off.
"Get out of my way, Ema."

"No. You know I didn't mean to leave you there and you know I would have came to pick you up."

"Coming back isn't the point. It's that you left me there all together. You know me. So, why would you?" Her arms crossed over her chest.

Ema gulped, her eyes looking towards Logan before looking back at Taree, "Logan and I were conspiring a plan to get you and Harry together last night - that's why I left you and that why I lied saying Logan was sick. We thought that giving you a little push would encourage you to make a move." A frown appeared on her face, "And that was wrong of me and I'm sorry."

Ema gulped, her eyes looking towards Logan before looking back at Taree, "Logan and I were conspiring a plan to get you and Harry together last night - that's why I left you and that why I lied saying Logan was sick. We thought that giving you a little push would encourage you to make a move." A frown appeared on her face, "And that was wrong of me and I'm sorry."

"You what!" Taree looked at Logan. "You two are unbelievable! Why? I've told you I didn't like him that way so you just..." She trailed off, running her hand thought her hair.

"Don't get mad at Ema, she really didn't want to go along with the plan but she did for me." Logan came forward.

Ema cut him off, "We thought you were just in denial about not liking him Taree."

"Denial! We are talking about the same Harry right? The one who's like one of my guy best friends! When have I ever been in denial over a guy? Or every lie to you about anything!"

"You never have, and it was unfair for me to do it Taree and I'm sorry." Ema began to look teary-eyed.

"You've never done anything like this. I just can't wrap my head around why you did it. Why Logan did it? Why I am the bad guy for making new friends when the people who I thought was my friends ditched 'me'." Taree eyes burn with tears as anger and sadness.

"You're making friends with strangers who could have physically hurt you," Logan interjected, seeing as how Ema didn't want to speak anymore. Besides it was his fault in the first place that all this happened.

Ema just stood there, looking ashamed in herself. There was big pit of guilty forming in her stomach and she didn't know if it would ever go away or not.

Ema looking guilty made Taree feel guilty.
"Logan, I would just stay out of this if I were you." James said.
Taree lifted her eyebrows at Logan. He just looked at Ema but she was looking at Taree.
"Listen, I know I don't have the best judgment, look at what my best friend did, but these guys were nice, it's not like I walked up and said 'Hi, lets leave the party.' We hanged out for hours at the party before we left to their house. They're right around my age too. I'm not dumb.
Taree let her arms fall, the anger slowly leaving while hurt was staying.

"We didn't know that Taree. You could have let me know that over the phone." Ema piped up, meanwhile Logan's eyes were still fixated on James.

Logan had moved towards James and said something in a low voice, "I'm not going to sit here and let Ema take the blame for something I started. So I'm not going to stay out of it."

"Man, please just listen to me, stay out of it. And why do you care so much if Ema get the blame?" James said back in a low voice.

Taree left up her hand making a fake phone "Hey Ema, I'm going home with some dudes, thanks for ditching me. There I left a message."

"Because Taree is a good person and so is Ema. They are best friends and they are my friends. I care about the both of them more than anything and something I started shouldn't tear them apart, James." Logan mocked his tone, but held a sincere look on his face.

Ema rolled her eyes, "You know what Taree, I'm done. I've been standing here for the past ten minutes going fucking back and forth with you and it's not worth it. I've apologized and I'm leaving it at that." She then left..

"Fine with me, I'm done too!" Taree watched as Ema drove off.

"You still think we should stay out of it James?" Logan said.
