"Hey Connor I was wondering if..."
"Hang on Ella" I say. I turn around to Samantha, the girl I have had a crush on since like, forever.
"Hey Samantha I was wondering if you wanted to, I don't know, go out sometime?" She smiles and taps her head thinking. She nods at me "sure" she says. Yes! Success. I turn back around to Ella, who is one of my best friends.
"What were you going to say?" Ella looks down at the ground. "Nothing" she says, barely whispering. She walks away. That was strange. I walk over to Kian.
"So is it official?!" Kian asked excitedly.
"Is what official?" I ask, confused.
"You and Ella"
"Um no?" What is going on?
"Uh oh" Kian says
"What?!" I am seriously confused now.
"Ella was supposed to ask you out" Kian says eyeing me. Oh no. That's what Ella wanted to talk about me. I feel terrible now. But I don't want to be more than friends. I love Ella in a friendly way. If we become more than that it might ruin our friendship.
"Ugh. I feel terrible" I say to kian. "I'll go talk to her"
"I wouldn't do that. She might not want to talk to you right now" Kian says unsure. Maybe he's right. I'll give it time.
I walk into my room in the o2l house. I lay down on my bed and bury my face in my hands. I was supposed to be Connors girlfriend by now. But instead he asked Samantha out before I had the chance to talk to him. Someone knocks on my door.
"Go away" I say my voice cracking. The door opens and kian walks in. He's like my big brother. We always go to each other if we have a problem. I look up at him and he hugs me. I start crying. I try to stop but I can't. He holds me tighter and tells me it's going to be okay.
"It's not fair, I should have gotten to him first"
"It's okay. Connor won't stay with Samantha forever."
"But what if they get married, have ten kids, and grow old together?!" I am probably overreacting but that was what I pictured doing with Connor.
"Ella, calm down." He looks into my eyes and leans in. His lips meet mine and I pull back.
"Kian?! What was that?"
"I-I'm sorry. I didn't mean-"He starts. I pull him close and put my lips on his. He deepened the kiss and I feel much better. I don't know what made me kiss him but I felt like I needed to.
"Kian? Ella?" Connor walks into the room and looks at us shocked.
"I-we" Kian crawled off of me and looks embarrassed. I sit up and look at Connor and then to Kian.
"Did I interrupt something?" He says. What was I thinking?! I should NOT have kissed kian. I knew that everyone would be at the house.
"It was nothing serious" I say to connor, feeling guilty.
"Nothing serious? I come to Apologize about earlier and I find kian on top of you. Are you really that desperate?" He says harshly. I feel like crying.
"Connor calm down" kian try's to defend me.
"No kian. Stop trying to protect her. I thought you were better than that Ella, but I guess I was wrong." He says and leaves the room. I feel like a child being scolded by her parent. Kian looks at me and leaves the room. He stops at the door and says two words, barely loud enough for me to hear "I'm sorry" he says. And then leaves.
