Do you ever just see a beautiful stranger? Not just a stranger that looks nice, but a really beautiful stranger who just captures you with the way they look and the way they act and makes you think about them at 2 am. A beautiful stranger that leaves you wonder struck and makes you somehow want to see them again and be with them forever yet at the same time, make you want to stay away from them so they remain this mysterious beautiful person that's in the world that would never hurt you.
I should have gone with the latter.

Rose's point of view

I'm lying in my room and I have been for hours now. I didn't go down for dinner, mum didn't bring Noah up for any naps, Rain didn't pester me. Everybody left me alone. I spend half the time being mad at my dad but also a lot of the time being mad at Ethan. 'Oh no'? 'Oh no'?! Seriously?! I thought that he was more into this than I was but as soon as it's practically over, he just says 'oh no'. I don't know whether I'm more mad at him for being that way or whether I should just blame myself. I flat out told myself that it was a stupid idea and I still went with it. 

I see that I have a message from him and I already have a bitter smirk on my face that just says "Stupid boy". But it's not what I was thinking. 

Rosy, I'm sorry. I don't even know if you're pissed off or not seeing as you aren't replying, but I know that I was a prick for replying like that and I'll admit I genuinely did it to hurt you a little. I was pissed off at your dad and I took it out on you by acting like I didn't care. I do care a lot. What are we gonna do? x

I just want to reply being all inspirational and all 'We will be okay!' but I know that he's never going to be the practical one in this relationship so I have to be. 

I reply:

I care as well, I promise I do, but we need to stay away from each other. Just for now, just at least a week. Maybe my dad will cool down a little. x

He replies fast as if he typed so quickly because he feels so strongly which makes my heart flutter a little even if it is just a thought. 

I don't want to give it a week. What if it just takes a week for you to get over me? Please, let's just try to meet up after school or whatever!

I reply:

It's not gonna work E, my dad always has a way of finding things out. It's just a week, Ethan.

He calls me instead. I sigh, answering. 

"I don't like this." he says. "Not one bit."

"Like I do." I whisper down the phone. "I haven't gone down for dinner tonight because I'm so mad. Seriously. No food. All evening."

He chuckles gently. "I like that you eat a lot. I wouldn't mind if you didn't, but I like that you do and that you don't lie about that."

"I'm flattered, really, but now isn't the time." I whisper, smiling and he laughs a little. "What are we going to do, E?"

"I like it when you call me that, Rosy."

"Ethan, stop getting sidetracked."

"Sorry." he murmurs even though he doesn't have to talk quietly. "I guess we have to give it a week. Can we still call each other?" 

I shrug even though he can't see me. "It's a bit risky."

"Can we message each other?" he whispers. 

"I'd like that." I whisper back. 

"I like you, Rosy." he murmurs. "I like you a lot."

"I like you a lot too." I whisper. "I've got to go."

"I miss you." he says and my heart explodes into a million pieces.
