'I just want your time, nothing else.'
Just like how the rivers flow after a stormy nigh of rain in the next morning, my eyes were flooding with salt release with my tears. I had pressed my lips together in an attempt to not allow my cries to leave my mouth and hit his ears.
He was not my saviour brother any more. He has changed.
I kept telling myself to get a grip on my emotions and face him-- like a stranger, if not as a sibling, it was tough regardless.
"Ava, get up." I can sense him towering on my head by standing at the side of my bed with folded arms. His breaths were audible under the disturbed environment of my room that was filled with the noise of pitter patter sound of the rain fall. Noah alone had the ability to convince me, otherwise I never accepted anyone's requests nor pleas.
I was raised by him as a stubborn sister who was granted all the permissions to break rules of being a good child. Our parents have stopped looking at us a long time ago, so Noah became everything to me, and he knew when I reacted differently.
The mattress next to my body indented while I Iay in the middle of the same, trying my best to not let him hear my cries, "Hey! Ava, get up." I was not expecting him to touch me along with that statement.
Noah pulled my arms. I wriggled throwing my anger on him. "Don't you touch me, go away!" he was strong like iron with those big bulgy biceps. He was a strong guy in his twenties. "What is wrong with you, Ava? What is with that crying..." he asked me as if he was irritated by my behaviour.
His fingers clutched my arms still, he was in no mood of letting me go away. For a moment I just felt like shoving his sentences that I eavesdropped the last night, right into his face and push him out my room and slam the door on his face. But a part of ju heart held me.
No matter how much angry I was with whatever my ears have heard from the last night, I still wanted his pampering. I needed him to shower me with his love, if not tell me that he was secretly dating a girl.
Though I would not mind him dating anyone but the hiding was hurting me. I wanted to tell him that I knew about his relationship and I would not mind even if it was that Jasmine, the bitch from his school who broke his heart and moved on with his best friend in Dallas, I just wanted him to tell me.
We never kept secrets from each other. I told him everything, and he told me everything from his life even though I was two years younger than him and his sister, but we always had rapport that was stronger than our siblings relationship.
"I don't think you deserve to know that... Just go out." I lowered my head, in a way that Noah can't see my race. My tears recklessly oozed from my eyes after melting from the igneous pile of hurt that was inside my chest. "Just leave me alone..." I cried pulling my knees near my chest.
Noah bent his head a bit towards the mattress attempting to see my face. His little efforts were forcing me to just avoid my doubts towards him and his girlfriend whomever he was dating and just hug him tight. I needed his shoulders that have been my favourite place to hang and play.
"Is it because of that Ethan!" Noah remarked narrowing his eyes.
He was sitting like a crawling baby on all his four on my bed and looking at my face with a tilted head. I whimpered banging my feet on the bed as the name of that bully caught my attention.
Every time I try to avoid him, any which ways he irritates me again. He is that nightmare that I have never seen and never want to see but that guy... He is unpredictable.
"If he really is then tell me, I will kick his ass. How dare he bother my sister." Noah's protective brother's voice chimed in my ears.
I looked up from my knees at his face, he was sitting across me with a leg crossed over the bed and the other one hanging loose at the side of the bed and resting on the cold floor, "Or if it is that stupid best friend of yours, I will kick his ass then. I won't let anyone ruin my baby sister's mood."
with that being said Noah pulled my arms until I was in his lap being hugged tightly while he fell back on the bed on his back speaking near my ear, "Wishing my sist, her life's ha ppiest eighteenth birthday!"
'A girl's birthday is special, always. And when a crazy stupid lover's messages floods her phone, it becomes all the way more marvelously special.'******Ava Jones..."It is raining heavily today! How about I drive you to the school in my car." I sat on the circular dining table located across in the kitchen in my seat and enjoying the slice of pasta that Noah heated for me.I raised my arm and showed my brother a thumbs up, who was cooking some pasta for us, "As you say" I answered him enjoying my pizza that was his mini treat for me in order to lessen my anger towards him.He thought that I was angry because he did not wish me at 12 o' clock the last night. He was totally unaware of the real cause behind my cries and I did not let him know about it either.I was just happy that he was showering me with his attention fairly as I had wanted. I can talk about his gir
'She was a beautifully broken story with no beginning, middle or end.She was just a blank page that he wished to fill with the words coming all the way from his heart!'****Ava Jones...We settled in the car and embarked our wet journey towards our school, Rosewood High.The clouds were mildly pouring while I preferred to check all the messages I received. I purposely avoided reading Ethan's messages since I know the majority of them would be nothing but his love confessions.I have not made a proper introduction of him to you right, let me do it now. So he is Ethan Connor, the only son of his parents aka the principal of our school, Mr. Harvey Connor and Mrs. Jenny Connor who is a dentist by profession.However, he is a bully. A complete badass bully who loves to hurt and pain people for his fun. He is in the same class as mi
'He may be a bully hurting and bothering everyone, but across her, he was a lovestruck puppy who'd melt in her arms.'***Ava Jones..."Bye Noah, see you after the school!" Waving at my brother rushing towards his class inside the school building I waited back near the gate of the school for my best friend Dylan.We have been friends like for five years now. I met Dylan in school during the lunch break. He was like your typical cute little boy with a lovely smile and chubby cheeks. That was Dylan five years ago, but now, after half a decade, he has grown up into a handsome mess with a heart stealing smile and a handsome face that every girl from our class wants to caress.Dylan Hemsworth, my best of friend, was a shy guy. He never dated a girl because he simply never found anyone suiting his taste. And I, for one, was his only formal friend that every other fema
6"He was handsome, no doubts. But his thoughts were as ugly as hurting anyone's heart with his sinful actions."****Ava Jones...Soon I was standing in the canteen with the others watching Sasha and her boyfriend sitting on the chair in the middle of the canteen room. They were surrounded by Ethan's friends, Jack, Selena, Hardin and Bill while Ethan himself sat on a chair opposite Sasha and Max's.His left leg was crossed over the other and a finger of his one hand tapped on his chin as the other hand rested on his stomach, "So you visited my father and complained against me, didn't you?" he calmly sat on the chair eyeing the couple.He seemed gentle but I can imagine him gritting his teeth. Ethan was like that stormy night that seemed romantic with drizzling sky and fragrance of petrichor until its real motive was seen.All the eyes stared
7"His eyes were the biggest liar I ever saw... Because every time he glared at me in anger, I knew there was an evil thought going on in his head which was nothing but wanting to kiss my lips."****Ava Jones...My legs started trembling. There were many strong and courageous individuals in the school yet nobody stood against Ethan and his gang for they knew, he was a heck of stubborn guy who once enters someone's life then there is no way he tends to leave them unless they are not doomed to the zero level. I have experienced that myself."Ehhh you bit---" being totally perplexed and scared I held the tall guys t-shirt from the back as I saw Jack and Bill kicking their chairs and getting up. They were about to get a hold of both Sasha and Max when Ethan himself stood up and roared, "NO! They are my culprits, I will handle them alone. Back off you all."H
'His love is like a witch's potion. Too much is not too good and too less is not very effective.'*****Ava Jones...My legs lost the strength to stand still and I completely hung on him for support. Gratefully, his one arm was around my waist holding me still or else I would have ended kissing the ground with my ass. His stare was intense. Ethan (without making any effort) successfully has my attention to himself.I can't take my eyes off of his face while his tongue licked and fondled with my lips. All I could see was his dark eyes looking down at me as I stood frozen in his arms. If it had not been his teeth biting my lower lip then I don't think I would have come back to reality.His wink followed a devilish smirk, Ethan raised an eye brow giving me a teasing smile. I quickly pushed him aside and looked behind me at Sasha and Max. The two of them were in tears, trembling and re
'If he is an addict, I am his addiction.'****My fingers froze in fear. The smirk from his lips gradually died. I took a few steps backwards in an attempt to maintain a safe distance from him since the way he stared at me, it was clear that he was about to take a step that would be regretted by me after that I refused to pretend to be his girl.And why should I?Isn't that true that we are not dating then why should I play along! I agree I came forward to help my classmates but how can I overlook the reality that I don't have a very good relationship with Sasha. She is one of those girls in the school who tries to show her superiority and show off her wealth. I cannot overlook that she does not like any girl talking to her boyfriend including me.I can admit that I came forward to help the couple more for Max. That guy is really very helpful. I sometimes wondered how on eart
'When we walked in the crowd with fingers entwining together, I knew I was not me any more.'****Third person's point of view...Hard...It was hard for Ava to walk by the bully brute's side, holding his hand. She felt awkward as they walked around in school with Ethan. "I am still very much angry on you for avoiding me like always but since it is my dear girlfriend's, that is you, birthday today... I am letting you without any punishment." Ava watched him smile at her as they came walking towards the threshold of the school.It was the time of the first lecture. The bell of the first lecture was about to ring. The students who have just hit their steps inside the gate of the school were rushing inside since any time the first bell will ring and the teacher will be in the class.But from what everyone can see, their eyes popped out an
