Hesitantly, she lifted her right hand and brought it closer to my hand but stopped in between, leaving a space of just an inch between our hands. I looked at her but she avoided my gaze and just as I was about to ask her why she stopped in mid, she put her hand on mine, and squeezed it gently. "I promise." She smiled weakly at me and I covered my hand with hers, my heart feeling giddy at this older yet strangely new bond formed between us.
"So can I ask you anything now?"
Rose hesitated and looked down but then she lifted her face, strange determination lining her strict features. "Sure. Go ahead. Ask me anything."
I took a deep breath, preparing myself to ask her all sorts of questions which had been itching my intestines for answers since the day Rose came back. "What type of job do you do?"
Rose tilted her head, raising her eyebrow. "That's it?
Author's POV:"How can you be so cruel to your own friend, Edward!" Mrs Jones glared menacingly at her son, who just stared at her blankly, his mind somewhere else."I'm talking to you, Edward!" Mrs Jones rubbed her temples to relieve some stress, before she sighed at her son. "I had never known I'd live to see a day where my own son would scam me for his selfish desires!""I apologized already Mom. I'm sorry-""You're sorry!? That's it!? Did you say this word to Emily!? Did you apologize to her properly after you played with her feelings all this time!? Did you even know how much that poor girl must be hurting playing the role of cupid for you and your stupid girlfr-" She sighed loudly and attempted to sit on a nearby chair, her heart beating wildly, her blood pressure rising rapidly. She clutched the dinning table for support, stumbling slightly when Edward ran towards her, gripping her shoul
Emily's POV:His head snapped at his mother's direction, anger flashing in his eyes. "Why would I be happy for it?""Why not? Was she not happy for you when you told her you were in love with Lara?"He looked hesitant for a moment before looking up at his mom's expectant face. "Yes. She was. She congratulated me for falling in love with an amazing person. I don't remember her ever talking ill of Lara so I assumed Emily must like her very much.""See. You shared your happines with her. She willingly accepted to be a part of it. If you still don't know what it is, it's called friendship between two people. But can you ever be happy with her being with someone...""I'll try to be happy for her-" Edward started."...who's not you?" Mrs Jones completed her sentence, questioning her
A little fun I did with my own writing. Read ahead to know lol.Emily's POV:"Ugh, this is too damn hard! I can't do it anymore!" I sighed loudly, letting the laces of the red dress I was wearing fall down to my sides.Closing my eyes in frustration, I looked at the phone screen to see Mia muffling her laughter with her palm. We had been on a video call for an hour. She was teaching me how to wear this new dress my mom had made it necessary to gift to me as the part of my effort in changing myself all over to an elegant lady which she had always wanted me to.Which I might add, would be the absolute brutal unnecessary death of my tomboyish-ness someday."What?" I asked her, somewhat irritated by her laughter."Nothing, " She answered me. "It's just seeing you trying to put on a dress reminded me of my
Emily's POV:Mia was confused and lost at my words. "Stopped being in each other's lives? What's that supposed to mean?"I winced slightly as the pin I had been adjusting around a stubborn frizzy curl made every possible measure to poke my fingertips and, eventually, did succeed in bringing a gasp out of me. "I should've taken those little hints too, Mia. Considerable of all, when he decided to go on a separate path all by himself, most of which didn't involve we being together."Mia looked at me with something akin to pity. Something that I loathe her for giving me every time our conversation loops back to him. "That was one heck of an immature decision on his part, Emily. You know you'd never mean anything less to him than-""I'm tired of meaning everything to him, and at the same time, just nothing to him. I don't know how long it'll keep going like tha
Don't forget to see the trailer of If Only He Knew, link given in the Author's Note. Thank you.___Emily's POV:"So you're going to hand over this box to him right?" Mia asked, hoping for some positive response from my side, as evident from her slightly raised tone."I'm in the middle of considering-""What's there to consider-oh my God, I'm going insane, I think I've lost half millions of my brain cells trying to persuade the 'yes' out of you and Jesus forbid, but I still fucking failed! I'm gonna puke all my frustration towards your stubborn ass one by one-wait, I think I'm going to need to puke for real, wait! Don't go anywhere. I'll be back in a minute, " Mia said, as she leapt off her bed in a hurry to occupy the space in the floor of her bathroom, the alternating faint but sudden loud sounds of her throwing off the half-digested liquid contents being the only thing audible through the screen.When she came back, she was breathless and half-exhausted as she took large gulps of wa
| Epigraph |His hands are saying that he wants to hold her. His feet are saying that he wants to chase after her...He's probably forgotten that I'm here, beside him. *throws cream buns to all my readers*>>Here you go! | When We Met |"Love is like a wind. You can never see it, but you can always feel it."Birds were chirping, the skies were all clear except for kites. A soft breeze splattered over trees which reverberated with pleasure. It was the spring season, perfect for every girl and boy, man and woman. Two children were playing on the playground. Or more like fighting. "You can never win against me, " the little boy said, patting girl's forehead. The girl tried to reach him, but he was slightly taller than her. How can he be taller? He is just six, the girl thought. She pouted in annoyance at the rude behaviour of the boy who she didn't even know! "I will tell my mom that today I met a g
~Based on the same theme of unrequited love, but with the different sort of love-triangle. Written with feelings and passion, so hold your seats pals, it might give you Tachycardia if you ever had serious one-sided love for anyone lol.Emily's POV:I was happy. Very happy, in fact. Who wouldn't be? I mean I just had my life all planned out. I had graduated, got a job offer, and my best friend just called me saying he needs me. The same best friend who I had a crush on for maybe about fifteen years. It was more of a crush at first, but then it turned from a mere degree of "like" to "inevitable love" before I could even gather my thoughts up. And I, like any girl in love should behave, sealed it deep in my heart. I thought if I could be able to match his type, he would reciprocate it, but I was afraid he might not want me back. Because he was in love with someone who was not me. Tragic, isn't it? The problems didn't start there, I guess because he certainly had the right to love som
Emily's POV:We decided to visit Edward's home. I rang the bell and Mr Jones opened the door, a warm smile on his face."Hello, Mr Jones!""Oh, my cute girl, it's been a long time since we hung out, " he said patting my head.I smiled widely at him."I graduated and I also got a job offer from the National Tropics hospital. I will join after a month." I said, earning praise from him."Oh, my two children have already grown up. I can't want anything else than seeing you succeed as much as this world can offer!"Mr Jones always thought of me as the second child of his, a daughter which he never had. He took care of me, even going as far as scolding his own son. I was blessed in some aspect.When my father died, he actually financially supported our family for some time until my mom found a
