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

I expect to wake up and see him gone. I keep my eyes closed for a while, not wanting to face that but I hear movement and open them. He's still here. I frown at him. He doesn't smile or frown or anything, he just looks. He's holding his bags and I realise that he woke me up. 

"Hey." he says. "I'm just heading out now."

I nod, sitting up, feeling self conscious of how I look when I just wake up even though he's seen it before. 

"Look, I want us to be okay again." he sighs. "I can't say I've hated not talking to you, I think we both had our reasons but I do hate the fact that it's happening. Just promise me that once we've had some time away from each other, once we've had a chance to sit down at some point and talk, we can be like we were again."

"Ethan, it was just one fight-"

"But it was a bad one. We both obviously need to talk about what we were saying and what we were feeling. Can you please promise me that we're going to be okay again?" 

I nod, looking down to hide the tears that are glistening in my eyes. "Yeah. But will you promise me something?" 

He nods, softly. "Yeah."

"Just promise me that you are going to come back." I say, still not looking up at him. I hear my voice shake. "Just promise me that you're not going to spend a couple of weeks at university without speaking to me at all and decide you like it. Come back."

He nods. "I'll come back."

I smile without looking up because it's not a real smile. I hear the door shut and I let myself cry for the first time about this. Things weren't bitter between us just then but if we just went back to being in love straight away without talking about the negative things we're feeling, we'd ruin everything. So I let him drive away without going after him.
