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 literally don't speak for a week. We don't say a word to each other. Not even 'excuse me' or 'thanks' or 'hello'. I can't find my phone at one point and instead of asking him which would be easier, I just look for it for ages. There's just nothing. We live in absolute silence other than the sounds of the TV, the bath running, or our separate meals cooking. Neither of us listen to music because that's what we used to do together. We're still sort of upset with each other for the reasons we both fought about but now, those reasons aren't anything we couldn't talk about and get past. The only reason we're still not speaking now is because of our own pride. 

After that week is up, I'm sat eating dinner by myself when he walks over to me. My stomach tenses as always when he's near but I prepare myself for the disappointment as he doesn't talk to me and as he carries on walking past me. But he clears his throat.

"Hey." he says. It's nice to hear his voice but it's not like he's talking to me. He doesn't sound like he knows me and I don't feel like I know him. I wait for him to say 'can we talk' or something and I'm ready to love rather than fight but he doesn't.

"Hi." I say. It feels weird to actually talk. I realise that I haven't spoken to anybody very much recently. 

"Look, I'm starting uni in a couple of days. I'm going to go and move into the dorms tomorrow morning."

I frown. "Where am I going to go?" 

"No, you can stay here." he says. "And I'm going to come back here, I'm only staying in the dorms for a couple of weeks so that it's easy to get to class and stuff while I still get used to it there."

I nod.

"And because I think we need some time away from each other. Proper time away from each other. Not just not talking."

I nod.

He nods. 

We both go to sleep ten minutes later.
