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

"Dad..." I whisper. "What are you doing here?" 

"I think it's about time we talked, don't you?" he asks. He's still not the caring dad I've always known. He's still cold. Not in a way that I'm scared of him, I'm just upset. 

I frown, wondering how he could possibly know that I was here. I turn to Nicole, feeling tears in my eyes. "Did you do this?" 

Her eyes widen. "Rose, no, of course not!"

"It was actually your boyfriend." my dad speaks up and my heart shatters into a thousand pieces. "He told me you were here so that we could talk and so that you'd come home. Even he knows that that's the right thing to do."

"No." I can barely whisper now. "You're lying."

"Rose." he says, softly. All of a sudden, he's the caring Dad again. "I'm sorry, sweetheart."

I begin to sob. However much I'm happy to go back to my family and however much things are neutral, Ethan said it himself, things need to go slowly. I'm angry about what my dad did, things aren't sorted. I'm not bad with my dad, but I'm not good. I'm smart enough to know that it's not right for me to go home yet and even if it was, I don't want to go home. I want to stay with Ethan. Doesn't he want me anymore? Did he get bored? There are so many things to think about that are just hurting me. More than anything, Ethan betrayed me and that's not something I thought would ever happen. 

"Come on, Rose." my dad tries to put his arm around me put I step backwards. He frowns. "Come on, let's go home."

"No!" I laugh, shocked. "Do you think that just because Ethan disappointed me, that means that you didn't? You both did! I'm going to come home eventually, of course I am, but nobody's ready for that yet."

"Well where exactly are you going to stay?" he asks. 

"She can stay here." Nicole whispers, putting an arm around me.

"Dad, I think you should go." I whisper, hugging Nicole back. 

He sighs, shaking his head and walks away. Nicole closes the door, turning around and hugging me properly and I sob on her shoulder. I'm so confused. I'm not going back to Ethan, for some unknown reason, Ethan randomly just got bored and tried to send me home. Things are eventually going to be okay with my dad but not yet, right now, however much I want to go home to my mum and my siblings, I can't yet. I can't go home to my family because I chose Ethan over them and even though Ethan has left me now, I still can't go home. 

"You've got me." Nicole whispers. "Don't worry, you've got me."
