With Love,

Earan Edwards; your 17 year old typical girl, had just moved back to her Texas small town from the Philippines to enter another journey, 'college life'. Her life honestly was a bit of a bumpy road; a long list of trial, let's just say. But suddenly, after her rough teen years, something lightens her. A weakness; A secret admirer. Extreme secret admirer. Months after the mystery , she realized she's possibly in love with this guy.. Not having a clue on who he is. Think about it, when it comes to the time where she finds out, what'll change?


4. Change My Mind

This road trip feels like forever.
We've only been in the truck for 3 hours.

I'm tired and hungry as hell.
"Can we stop somewhere to eat? I'm starving and I need to  pee!"

"Earan, are you okay?"

"Dylan, I just said I'm hungry and I have to pee. So no, totally not okay right now."
I was grumpy and didn't want to take anyone's shit right now. 

I wish Sarah hadn't reminded me of William.

I kept thinking about how he was there one minute and gone in the next. 

Dylan asked the driver to make a quick stop at the near by gas station. 

We got ourselves burgers, fries and shakes. 
I've been craving those for so long. 

I tried to be happy after my bitch scene from the truck.
We chilled, having a nice mid night meal.

"Hey guys, I'm just gonna go to the bathroom real quick."
I stood from the table, making way into the restroom.

I noticed I had about 14 missed calls from Josh, so I decided to call back. 

"It's 2:55am and you'be been calling. What's up?"

"Have you already left? Dylan said you guys were leaving?"

"Yeah. Since when you you give shit?"

"Since a year ago."

"Whatever. You're probably drunk, go back to sleep and say that again tomorrow when you wake up."
I hung up the phone. 
Josh was always so nice to me, but I'm such a douche bag to him.

I exit, going back to Dylan and Sarah.

"Holy shit you just missed out on the loudest burp ever done by Sarah!
My babe is a master."

Sarah and Dylan were so cute, but sometimes, they disgust me. 

They're a strong couple, it's been 10 months they've been together. 

I envy their relationship, they're best friends and lovers.. exactly what I long for,
exactly what I almost had,
exactly what I can have, but don't want. 

Dylan's been trying to convince me to get together with Josh, but I just don't want him.

He's handsome, popular, smart and rich.
Also a jerk, idiotic, and has a big ego sometimes.

I not sure, I guess I could always consider him. 

What was I thinking? 
I cleared my mind. 

"Hey Dylan.. I need to ask you something."

I tried, but couldn't seem to quit thinking about it. 

Dylan grew a big smile.

"Yeah, sure. About what? Josh!?"


"Oh my god, you don't really like him, do you?" Sarah was getting worried. 

"I don't know. The feelings are 50/50.
He's got his pros and cons."

"Everyone has their pros and cons, that's people."

"Who cares about that shit?! Earan likes Josh!" He excitedly exclaimed. 

"Dylan, I don't really know for sure, okay?!"

"I'm not dumb or blind, I know it. Just watch, by the time college starts, you two will be together. 
You're lucky he enrolled at the same colle-"

"He did WHAT?!"

"Awh crap! I was suppose to keep 

"Great. Just great.
So now I'll be seeing him all over again. 
God, don't you know how annoying the last year was for me?
Him everyday standing a short distance from my locker trying to make conversation, walking with me to almost all my classes, getting drunk and trying to have a one night stand, coming to the house to hang out with you, with a plus to see me.
I just don't get it. What does he want? 
He's capable, he can have ANY girl he wants. All the girls want him! Why does he want me?"

"Yeah, that's what I wanna know! Your personalities are totally different. 
You're not alike at all."

Sarah was right, we're totally different. 

"Earan, c'mon! He's really into you."
Dylan whined. 

"I don't know. Just.. 
Ugh. I don't know!"

After I took a last sip of my shake, we all went back to the truck.

I went back to the bad mood knowing 
we'll be in this truck for about 2 days.

Dylan and Sarah chilled in the back, cuddling. 

And I was dead knocked out, riding shotgun. 

I woke up at around 9:30-ish,
along with some more missed calls from Josh. 

"You're phone's been ringing for about an hour, it was the alarm clock for today."

Sarah's voice was scratchy. She was definitely tired. 

"You can thank Josh for that."

"Call him back!!"

Dylan seemed to be a jolly guy at an early hour. 

I dialed his number and waited.


"Hi. Now what is it that you possibly want?"

"Honestly, you."

"You're not drunk? Not going through a hangover? Haven't taken any drugs? Not tired as fuck and don't know what you're talking about?"

"I'm serious. I know Dylan's probably already told you everything.
But I really like you."

"Josh. We're completely different.

You're popular, I'm not.
You're a jerk to almost everyone, I'm not, only to you.
You're a genius, I'm average.
You're rich, I'm still average at that.

You can get any girl you want, why do you want me?"

"For exactly those reasons.

You're just a regular girl. 

I know your background, I know you're a girl of sugar and spice.
I know your story, I know about everything that's happened in your life, I still want you. 
You're perfect in my point of view.

I've never felt this way, other girls are just for fun. But you're not a Barbie, I'm not gonna 'play then nay'. "

"I can't just trust you, okay? I gotta go. Bye."

"Woah.. That was deep."
Dylan said in his lowest toned voice, trying to be literal. 

"I keep telling you, it's all 50/50.

I'm not going through that heart break shit agai-"

"You're already heart broken with William, just give him a chance."

"I have to observe him first."

"Dylan, I don't see why you want them together. He's not good for her."

"We'll Sarah, she's good for him. That's what he wants!"

"Hey hey hey, I don't want you two getting in a fight over this. I just wanna eat at Waffle House."

"What?! Where?!"

"You said you're not blind, but you can't see the Waffle House a few blocks down? Ha, wow."

"Where the heck are we anyways?"
Sarah asked.

"There's also a sign for that. Thereeee."
I pointed out. 

"Welcome to Phoenix!" It read. 

"Now look who's the other blind birdy!"

"Shut up."

"Yo Ed, can you pull over there?"

Everything made me starving.
