3. II






My bitten fingernails are tapping against the hospital waiting chair as I wait. Why isn't she wanting to see me or even know my name? Did she forget this whole year? No, no she can't just forget me. She just can't. I guess the news is tearing me apart more then I thought it was.  I quickly take out my phone, and my headphones. Music is what calms me down. The words just syncing into your ears, as the sound is pure bliss. Lacey always ranted about music. She loved all different kinds. Some stuff she listened was the complete opposite of what you think she would listen to. I put the headphones onto of my ears, pressing play on my phone. The first song to play was, 'Hold You' by Nina Nesbitt. I sigh resting my head on the cold wall, trying not to cry about the situation. I wanted to tell her how I felt about her today. She told me she loved me and I denied it. I was so scared. But I know I love her.  Her brother appears into the waiting room, sending me a slight smile. I stand up, pulling my headphones of as I do. The words of the beautiful song still flow through my head as he clears his throat.

"Ember, Lacey wants you to go.", He says looking me straight in the eyes.

I scoff, a bit taken back, "You are lying, she wouldn't want that."

He sighs looking down, "She is confused Ember. She loves you and you know that. She just needs space. I think you need to go home and get some rest. You can visit her tomorrow."

My head shakes no in response,"No, no I'm okay. I'll sleep here."

"There is no-"

I interrupt him harshly, "I'm staying here for her and you can't stop me. She is my girlfriend. I can stay here if I want, even if she doesn't remember me. I don't care right now. All I care about is her recovery. She needs me now, even though she doesn't think so." I take a deep breath, holding in the salty tears that want to roll down.

He looks down and sighs once more, "Do what you want Ember. I just don't want to see you get hurt."

I sit back down putting my head in my hands. I take another breath before putting my headphones back on. I decide to try and think about something a bit happier. 


I smile at the beautiful redhead siting in front of me, "Miss Lacey Hale."

She smiles a bit, "Miss Ember Jones."

"Is this a date?", I crack a smirk before I take a sip of my water. 

She taps her chin playfully, "Well, we are at a restaurant. There is no one else here. We are both wearing fancy dresses. So yes we are. Does that make you nervous?" Her hand reaches out to touch my knee, underneath the table.

My cheeks immediately blush as I mutter, "Yes it does. I've never been on a date with a girl before."

"Its easy, just pretend I'm a guy.", She smiles.

I laugh loudly, "That will be pretty hard considering how beautiful you are."

She blushes and looks down at the menu. I smile to myself as I look down to the menu also. I contemplate whether to get the pasta or the salad. Both are the chefs choice for tonight. I keep biting my lip as I try to figure out what I want.

I get pulled out of my thoughts by Lacey saying,"Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart." 

"Well thats depressing.", I laugh softly.

She laughs with me but responds, "I think its beautiful."

"Where did you find that?", I ask curiously.

She smiles down at her menu once more before answering, "A book of mine."

I nod looking up at her, "Why do you do that?"

"Do what?", She asks.

I smile, "You make yourself more interesting every time I talk to you."

A slight blush runs up her cheek as the waiter comes up to us. The waiter was tall and lean. He smiled at both of us taking our orders before scurrying off. The rest of the night was quiet but it was the good quiet. We ate then made small talk again. I just like to hear her talk sometimes. The way she flips her hair when she gossips, and the way she crinkles her nose when she is trying to think. The feelings I have for her scares me. But they are more exciting then scary. Once we get to her house, I walk her to her door.

"Thank you again for tonight.", I say smiling at her.

She bites her lip, "No thank you."

We both look around awkwardly till I feel her lips on top of mine. The feel of her lips was foreign to me, but yet it felt right. My hand moves to her waist pulling her a bit closer till we pulled away. She smiles, with a slight blush on her cheek, "Goodnight Ember."

"Goodnight Lacey."
