Ember and I walked to her house.
She smiled at me.
"I had an amazing day." She said, her cheeks turning red.
"Me too." I smiled.
I leaned in and kissed her.
She smiled and we held each other.
"Yeah?" I asked, still holding her.
"For what?" I asked.
"For walking into my life... and staying." She said.
I smiled and kissed her.
"Thank you too." I smiled.
"Good night." She smiled and kissed my cheek.
"Good night." I blushed and she turned away.
She was about to walk to the door when I grabbed her hand.
She looked at me.
"I love you." I said.
She wrapped her arms around my neck and I wrapped my arms around her waist.
"I love you too."
When I got home that night, Cora hit me with a water balloon.
"What the fuck, Cora?!"
"You told her you loved her!" Cora shouted.
"Because I do! Why did you hit me with a fucking water balloon?"
"You were mine first." She growled.
"Are you fucking kidding me?"
She stared at me.
"Yeah, okay? I was yours. But you weren't mine. I moved on. I got over it, just like you told me to. I'm happy for once in my fucking life, Cora." I growled and stormed to my room.
I sat on my bed and my phone beeped.
I turned my phone off and grabbed my suitcase. I didn't know where I would live, but it's only going to get worse if I stay here, and it's unfair to Cora.
I sneaked out of the house and walked down the street. I heard footsteps behind me and I quickly turned around, anger building up. I saw Ember and I took a sigh of relief.
"Where are you going?" Ember asked.
"I don't know." I sighed.
"Maybe you could live with us?"
"No, that's okay. I don't want to be trouble." I sighed.
"Jacob, talk to me." She said and sat on a bench.
I sat next to her.
"What's wrong?" She asked.
"Okay, so apparently Cora was spying on me when I said I loved you, and she threw a water balloon at me. I was her's once, but long story short, she wasn't mine. She's saying she loves me and shit but honestly, I'm over her. It was only going to get worse if I stayed there and I think I overstayed my welcome anyways."
She looked at me and held my hand.
"Please, Jacob, stay with us. What happened with her, won't happen with me."
"You promise I'm not causing any trouble?" I asked.
I held her hand and kissed her cheek.
"I love you. I'm sorry for pushing you away."
"You can always talk to me, Jacob. I love you too." Ember smiled.
"You can always talk to me too."
We walked to her house and I met her parents.
They said I could move in but all the rooms were taken up so I had to stay in the living room.
Her older brother walked in.
"What's all the commotion about?" He asked, rubbing his eyes.
"Meet our new guest, Jacob." Ember's mom said.
"Finally! Another male in the house. The house already feels less PMS-ing." He said and went back to his room.
That night, I was laying on the couch and Ember walked in.
"Get out of my bedroom, you stalker." I said in a girl's voice.
She laughed flipped me off.
"Love you too." I laughed.
She sat on my legs.
"Consider your legs lucky." She smirked.
"Can you just like... get un-cuter? Because I'm dying over here." I laughed.
She hit me with a pillow.
"That hurt so much. Why did you do that though?"
"Because you're making me angry with your level of cuteness."
"You just took my pick up line." I laughed.
"Too bad." She smirked.
"Why steal my pick up lines? You already stole my heart." I said.
She looked at me and smiled.
"Okay, that was smooth." She laughed.
She got on top on me and laid on her back.
"My own personal blanket." I laughed and wrapped my arms around her.
She licked my arm.
"Could you not?" I laughed.
"Noodle sniffer." She laughed.
"What does that even mean?"
There was a long pause.
"Shut up." She laughed.
"I don't want to go to sleep." She said.
"You need sleep, babygirl."
"You didn't let me finish. I don't want to sleep without you." She laughed.
"Oh." I blushed.
She turned over and laid on my chest.
I put my arm around her and kissed her nose.
