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.

Ethan's point of view

They're the longest two weeks of my life but eventually, I give up my dorm room to Adam and get in the car ready to go back to Rosy. I know I've seen her since but I can't wait to just spend every second with her again, like we used to. I drive so fast, probably deserving a few tickets but nobody pulls me over.

I burst into the flat, so excited to see her but nobody's home. I groan, realising that she's at school still. I cannot bear the thought of just lying around the flat bored again.

Rosy's point of view

I check my phone sneakily under the table in class and I see that I've got a text from Ethan:

I'M AT HOME RIGHT NOW, COME HOME RIGHT THIS SECOND.

I feel happiness rise inside of me. He's home. We're back to normal. I reply:

OMG ARE YOU REALLY. YES! I CANT COME HOME THOUGH, IM AT SCHOOL.

He replies almost immediately:

OMG YES I REALLY AM. AND TELL THEM YOU'RE SICK, COME HOME EARLY, I'LL PICK YOU UP, JUST COME HOMEEEEE 

I love how irrational he gets sometimes. It makes me realise that we made the right decision in trusting that connection which is the happiest thought I ever have. I text back: 

USUALLY I'D SAY NO BUT OMG IM SO EXCITED. OKAY WAIT FOR THE SCHOOL TO CALL YOU TO COME PICK ME UP. I CANT WAIT AHHHH

I show Nicole the texts under the table and she grins, nodding, agreeing to play along if needs be. I groan, putting my hand up.

"Yes, Rose?" my teacher asks. My very strict, boring teacher.

"Sir, I don't feel well." I mutter, putting my head in my hands. "I feel sick."

"Well if you need to be sick then by all means go to the toilet." he says firmly, turning around and writing on the board again. 

"Sir, can I go see my head of year? I think I need to go home."

"You do? You want to know what I think? I think you need to pass your English exam, so you're going to stay in class."

I glare at the back of my head and Nicole nudges me. It's not just any nudge. It's the nudge that says 'It's time for the plan'. We've had this planned since we were first friends. If either of us ever desperately needed to get out of school, the one that needed to get out would 'faint' and the other person would make sure they didn't get hurt as well as playing along. 

Nicole gets up and goes to the bin by the door to sharpen her pencil. Wink wink.

"Sir, I'm gonna be sick." I groan, getting up. 

"Then go to the toilet." he says, frustrated. 

I 'stumble' towards the door but when I get close to Nicole, I fall and she half catches me, lowering me to the ground and screeching. 

"Sir!" she yelps. "She fainted!"

I'm home within half an hour.
