Wonderstruck

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.

Rosy's point of view

We sit at opposite sides of the kitchen counter eating two different rice meals, both of which you put in the microwave to eat. Not that I mind, but he certainly did. He kept apologising and saying it was literally all he had to eat because it was all he could cook. I just laughed and told him it was okay because it was. I wouldn't care if he didn't feed me at all, I'm just grateful that he's letting me stay here. I'm just grateful that he even likes me at all. 

"So." he says, looking at me. "You're here to stay?" 

I shrug, moving my food around on my plate. "I don't think I can be."

He sighs. "Rosy, we've talked about this, haven't we?" 

"No, it's not you." I shake my head. "It's just I have to go back don't I? I know me and my dad aren't okay, but we all just need a break. I have my brother and my sister at home and my mum. And you've got to start going to uni in the day soon and I have to go back to school tomorrow."

He shrugs, taking a drink of water. "The break is gonna need to be quite long and I'm not just saying that because I love having you here, I'm being logical. You need things to cool down properly. You can still see the rest of your family whenever you like, they're more than welcome here and as for school? I'll drop you off on the way to uni and I'll pick you up on my way home. You don't have to go tomorrow if you don't want to though. I'm not starting uni for ages yet anyway."

I raise an eyebrow. "Why does this sound like something we're saying will go great when we really know it won't."

He laughs that laugh where he seems to be finding me funny in a way that I'll never understand as his eyes crinkle and his smile is wide.
