I was starting to get 'cabin fever', and we were running low on groceries, so Harry and I took the G-55 to the closest grocer. Which really wasn't that close due to the fact that the house is far out. But anyway, Harry parked next to a red Corvette. With Seth on my mind, I remembered that that was always his favourite car.
Seth and I were in the small neighbourhood park, and while Seth was sitting on the bench, I was sitting on the swing.
"Push me!" I told Seth, smiling widely. He chuckled, walking over in the midst of all the young children to push me. He grabbed my bum on a push, and I glared back at him. He stood in front of me, and I jumped high enough for him to catch me. I squealed softly as he pretended to drop me. He carried me bridal style over to the bench which was facing the road. A group of racers drove past, a shiny red Corvette taking up the bumper. I rested my head on Seth's shoulder, waving to the driver. Seth laughed softly.
"I'm going to get that car one day," He said dreamily, "And we'll go off in the sunset together, okay?" He asked me. I smiled and nodded.
Harry got a cart, and I picked up a basket.
"I'm going to go get us some pizza, and drinks, can you get ice cream?" Harry asked me. I nodded, strutting off to the frozen isle, turning back once to wink at Harry who was watching me with great interest. We both laughed. I continued walking down the frozen isle, glancing at a tall guy who was looking on the opposite side of the frozen isle, where there were frozen vegetables. We met eyes, and I smiled quickly, looking away.
Wait... I thought, doing a double take to see the fit guy again.
"Seth?" I called out softly, anxious to see if it was him, or if I'd have to go through an awkward,
'Sorry, I thought you were somebody that I used to know.' You know you sang that.
The guy turned to me once more, and I dropped the empty basket, running into his open arms, jumping up.
"Lina... I've missed you so much..." Seth muttered softly into my shoulder.
"Ditto, Seth. Where did you go?" I asked him, leaning up off his shoulder to look him in the face. He set me down, but didn't let me go. He sighed softly, looking down.
"Look, Li. We have a lot to catch up on. How about over some tea?" Seth said, pulling my body closer to his.
I shook my head, "I can't, I have plans for today, but on another day?"
He nodded quickly, "Yeah, can I get your numb-" Harry stood at the beginning of the frozen isle.
"What the fuck, Lina?" Harry said a bit loudly, his eyes practically bulging out of his head.
Seth and I separated ourselves from each other at an appropriate distance, but when Harry stormed over to us, Seth wrapped an arm around my waist protectively.
"Who the fuck are you?" Harry spat at Seth. I furrowed my eyebrows.
"Don't talk to-" I tried to say, being interrupted.
"Who wants to know?" Seth said in the exact same tone as Harry.
"Her boyfriend." After hearing those words come from Harry's mouth, Seth let me go, pushing me forward to Harry. Harry was just about to pounce on Seth, but I pushed him back.
"What the fuck, Li? What happened to us?" Seth said softly, anger still there. I sighed softly, running my fingers through my hair.
"Seth," I began, feeling Harry tense up at his name. "You ran away.. You didn't even say goodbye. You didn't really expect me to wait a few years for you, did you?"
Seth's voice cracked as he said, "Shouldn't it just matter that I'm back?"
"It matters, yes. I'm totally happy that you're back, but I couldn't wait forever. They put me in the auction house Seth. I was practically forced to move on. I'm happy right now."
"Oh," was all he said. Out of everyone, he should know that one-word answers drive me insane, especially in texts.
"I'm really sorry, Seth. But we can always be friends, right?"
a/n: that right there, loves, is the first step of being friendzoned. don't be sad, you'll be happy to hear that Harry and Seth are going to get all sweaty and hot in a fight over Alina. oops. spoiler alert.
