Hi friends!!! It's a short chapter, but I didn't know what else to add here without making it boring. Thanks for reading and please let me know what you guys want to see happen because it will help me a lot :) thank you!
Oh and I've realized that you guys probs don't know much about me sooo my names Emma (if you were wondering) and idk what you want to know soo feel free to ask me questions :-)
Elle walked outside real quick after a minute of looking at Luke. You could feel the tension in the air with both of them in the room.
Right before Rosie followed Elle out of the house though, I said, "Hey, uh, Rosie, can I talk to you for a second?"
She nodded quickly and we stepped outside to have some privacy. Elle was sitting at a bench about a block down, so no one was listening in.
"Umm..." I started. How do I say this? "This might sound absolutely insane," I continued.
"Don't even try to defend Luke right now." Her voice was strong and had the beginning of an annoyed tone to it.
"You've got to let me finish," I say. "Well, uh, ever since I met you that one day, at the band practice, I haven't been able to get my mind off you." I slightly chuckle.
I didn't know where to go from there and I didn't know if I should say anything else, so I looked down at her. My heart was beating frantically and I thought I may leap out of my chest.
My eyes met her's and my heart jumped. She was smiling.
Then she stared to lightly giggle. What?
"Seriously?" She asks happily.
"Yeah." My voice was cautious and confused.
"Wow," she breathed. Then her head shook in amazement. "I don't think you've left my mind once either."
My breath caught in my throat. Now it was my turn to be shocked. My eyebrows raised and I gave her an incredulous look.
"Wow," we said together, then laughed.
"Hey, if you don't mind, w-would you like to go on a date with me?" My voice kind of shook, nervous fir her answer. Just because we both were thinking about each other doesn't mean that we have to go out with one another.
"I'd love that," she smiled. With that, she said, "Thanks so much, but I have to go. Here, take my number." She pulled a piece of paper out of her pocket and handed it to me. "Text me!" She called as she walked away. Her eyes were lighter now than they were before. It was like I brightened her day.
"Bye!" I laughed back. Then I walked inside, up the stairs and collapsed on my bed.
Holy shit! I have a date with Rosie!
My whole body was filled with this weird ecstatic electricity. My heart was still beating pretty fast and I couldn't keep a smile off my face.
This is a great feeling.
I sat on the bench for about five minutes waiting for Rosie to come. I was hoping she wasn't doing anything stupid to the guys because you could see how mad she was at Luke when I left.
Just looking at him was too much. I don't like this at all. Since when could a boy take over your mind and make you feel this much pain? I've had a few boyfriends, but I've never been this bad after I find out one was cheating on me. And we weren't even a couple! It's ridiculous the amount of hurt that I'm feeling from this person.
My heart dropped as Rosie skipped over towards me with a faint smile on her face. What did she do to these poor guys?
"Why so happy?" I ask as we start walking back to my place.
"You're gonna hate me," she sighs. Uh oh. "Ashton might've asked me out," she continues.
"Really?!" I almost shriek. My gloomy mood fades as I start jumping in excitement. "I knew you liked him!"
Rosie giggles. "I never told you what I said back."
"I know it's a yes!" We both laugh together and then I ask, "But why would I be mad? This is great! You guys like each other!"
She shook her head and said, "Well, you know... 'Cause you and Luke I thought it might be awkward."
Yeah. For those few seconds I forgot that we were broken. My heart felt heavy and I suddenly became harder to walk. My feet were practically dragging on the sidewalk. Why did you have to do that, Luke?
"As long as I don't have to see him, things will be good." I forced a smile as I spoke.
"Cool," she laughed. "I really do like him."
And that's why I was okay with it. I'd do anything to make her happy and if that meant that I'd have to live with her dating Luke's bandmate, then I'll live with it.
I never knew that was her real name. I thought it was just Elle.
Buts it's a beautiful name.
And I wish I could tell her that.
I'm going to tell her that one day. We'll figure this out and she'll be mine.
I just have to know what she thinks I did and show her that I did nothing wrong.
And then we'll both be happy and together.
I don't think she realizes the pain I'm feeling just seeing her so upset. I want to be the one holding her and taking care of her. I want to make her feel better. But being the reason why she's so sad, it's just the worst feeling in the world.
I'm sitting here moping, trying to keep myself from crying. It's hard, though. I've caused the one I love terrible pain and I don't know how to fix it.
