Secrets Under The Starlight(Ed Sheeran Fan Fic)

"Tell me about you" Ed said, turning his face towards her. They were lying on the grass, stars twinkling above them. "There's not much to tell" She replies. "Oh I know there is" He smiles into the darkness. The girl takes a deep breath and begins to tell this gorgeous boy she hardly knows all her secrets, under the dark night sky.

5. Chapter Five

"Yes,Sir" Sophie answered the register confidently, for a change. She felt better about herself after her talk with Chad. She couldn't remember the last time she'd properly spoken to her brother. She didn't think she'd be able to be 'confident' for very long. Well, try to be confident. Ed was assigned a seat on the desk to the right of Sophie. Close enough for her to speak. 

"Hey" She said quietly.

Ed never heard.

"Hi" She gently tapped him on the shoulder.

"Woah" He jumped. "Sophie,Hey"

"Are you erm, okay?I didn't mean to scare you" She blushed.

"You didn't I was just in my own world" He laughed. " I'm good, you?"

"Yeah, I'm fine thanks" Sophie replied.

Ed was fiddling with a pen in his hand, and Sophie noticed a sheet of paper underneath it, scribbled with words and little pictures.

"Hey, whats that?" She nodded towards the paper.

"Oh, it's nothing. Just a few lyrics. I write songs sometimes"

"Really? Can I see?" Sophie asked.

"Erm, okay. but it's not very good. Here, read it when you're home." He folded the paper in two and handed it to Sophie who then slipped it into her pocket.

"Thanks" She smiled.

Mr Browne, the class teacher then told the class to hush. Causing a silence around the room.

She'd done it. She'd actually spoke, and it wasn't even so bad.

*********************************************************************************************************

Smoothing out the paper with her hands, Sophie crossed her legs on her bed and began reading the lyrics Ed had let her see.

White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste


Light's gone, day's end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men


And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18

But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream

The worst things in life come free to us
'Cause we're just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple grams
She don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

Ripped gloves, raincoat
Try to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes

Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat

Cool girl, no phone

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately, her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
'Cause we're just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple grams
She don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line

And we're all under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple grams
We don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland
Or sell love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
Angels to fly, to fly, to fly
Angels Die. (The A Team,Ed Sheeran)

 

Sophie) Wow, those lyrics are amazing!!" Sophie waited for a reply on Facebook.

Ed) D'you think?:)

Sophie)Yeah, definitely!

Ed) Thank you:3

Sophie) No problem,I'd love to hear more:)

Ed) I'm writing some at the moment, I can give you a sample?:D

Sophie) Yes please!:)

Ed) It's called Lego House. Here's what i've got so far:

"I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
And build a lego house
If things go wrong we can knock it down


My three words have two meanings,
There's one thing on my mind
It's all for you

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got you to keep me warm
If you're broken I'll mend ya and keep you sheltered from the storm
That's raging on"

Sophie) I love it! You're so talented Ed:) Do you sing too?

Ed) Yeah, I play guitar too. Maybe I can play for you one day:)

Sophie) Yeah I'd like that. Do you want to maybe meet up somewhere soon?

Ed) Sure! I'm free now:)Where?

Sophie) Me too,Erm,the ice cream shop at the end of the high street?

Ed) Okay!See you there:)

Sophie) See you!:)

***********************************************************************************************************

Wearing a flowy summer dress and converse, her hair curly, running down her back, she called out "Be back at 9!" To her parents and closed the front door behind her,butterflies in her tummy, all the way to the ice cream shop. Since she'd been speaking to Ed she'd felt so much more confident. Like she could talk to anyone, about anything. How could he make her feel so good?
