SapphireThe sun has just sunk below the horizon as my phone ringed to the side. I snuggled closer into covers and buried myself in the warmth, reluctant to open my eyes to the darkness. I felt an arm over my shoulder and a pair of eyes watching me in darkness.The bed shifted onto my side and I heard a small voice."Hello?" She said in a low voice."Baby girl, is that you?" Sean's voice was heard from the speaker. A warm smile spread across my face at his voice."Daddy!" Sarah said in an excited tone. "Why are you calling at this time? You know we shouldn't disturb mommy.""I'm sorry baby, I forgot." Sean chuckled. "What is mommy doing?""She's sleeping." She whispered. "When are you coming back home?""I'll be coming home in a few hours, baby girl." He said. "Are you taking good care of mommy while I'm away? And how is your little brother doing?""My little brother is being a very bad boy." I heard our 3 year old daughter say, "He's always kicking mommy in the tummy. I think he foun
SeanThe moon eagerly crept out even before the evening sun headed to the horizon. Hues of orange and yellow blend well with the fast arriving night sky, as the cold air carried away the warmth of the sun with it. The little puddle that lay by the windows was beginning to freeze as cool air continued to swarm over us.I was sitting by a tree in my lawn, my eyes relaxed. It was moments like these in my life that always prompted my mind to travel back in time. A warm smile spread across my face as images of my past flashed before my eyes. It's been ten years already. It was overwhelming me -in a good way - to finally realise how we've been through so much in these years.There have been several downs, but the highs, although few, always made the struggle seem worth it.Digging into my pocket for my wallet, I opened it to look at her picture. The same old picture that I always carried with me. It's a picture of her on the day of our first date, the day I finally asked her out.It's alrea
2 years after Sean's party. Sapphire The sun rays streamed into my room, spreading the flecks of light into every corner. The heat radiated off the closed windows, busting through the chilly air and warming my skin. I looked at my reflection in the mirror and stared at my blue eyes. That was the reason why I was named Sapphire. And it is a mere coincidence that my surname was Blue. Sapphire Blue with sapphire blue eyes – I had been subjected to many jokes in the past with my friends due to this. Looking further down, I examined my blue skinny jeans and a white tank beneath a black jacket. Gently running my fingers through my hair, I plaited it to a side. The scent of my newly purchased shampoo, that will have to be replaced immediately lingered in the air for a brief second. It almost felt intoxicating, and dominated my perfume. Ready for the day, I threw my bag over my shoulder and made my way out of my room. As I was stepping down the stairs, I was instantly greeted with a ric
Sapphire She squealed like she just met Taylor Swift. Shit! I whirled around at her sudden gesture and my leg made contact with the rock beside my foot and in a matter of seconds, I was on the ground. Double shit! "Hey," His silk voice filled my ears, as his hot breath fell on my neck, tickling it. Turning around, I met his grey eyes and his dark brown hair, masking his handsome face. "Are you alright?" He asked, his eyes showing concern. "I-I'm fine." I answered him. He wrapped an arm around my shoulder and lifted me up while I was staring at him. My nose was immediately filled with his sexy cologne and I take my time to inhale his scent. Triple shit! "So.." he started, with husky voice, "I heard Tate got beaten last night, by, the obvious man in the world." "Um… Yeah... Unfortunately, yes." I said, looking into his grey eyes. It was actually the first time ever that Sean was talking to me after two years of my time in this school. It was almost amusing that I had gone to m
As I walked into the library, I was instantly greeted by the scent of old books. I took a deep breath and smiled at the essence. How much I missed this place. It is the perfect therapy and one of the most cheap therapies, to say the least. As I walked, I stretched my cheeks to give a tight smile to my librarian, who, might I add, is not very fond of me. One reason is that, there's basically just me who visits this place. But in my defence, I don’t bother her at all. However, I might have strangely disturbed her privacy, so ever since then, I have tried to limit my visits since I couldn't handle her negative vibes. Good for both of us. As I walked to my reserved place, I propelled down on my chair. I looked at the huge clock hung on the wall across from me and sighed. I have 30 minutes to go. And, that means, I can actually read a book. Trying a little more to look on the positive side, I shuffle the contents in my bag and went for my book. I am re - reading the notebook now and I
"Partners? In what particularly?" Sean asked. "Chemistry , basically." She started "Your schedules are going to be changed. Ms. Blue will have either of you in her periods." No. No way at all. "But why?" "Ms. Blue, I have clearly reasoned out why I am doing this. Teaming you up would not only improve your grades but would control the pranks in the campus and the rates of injuries." She didn't stop, yet. "You three are few of the students we have with good potential and I don't, at any cost, want you three to fall down in your percentages. We are going to apply for universities and we want the best universities to offer to our students. Teaming you up, will make this work." I sighed. It feels like I was made to abandon Nutella for the rest of the year. Well, I meant to compare Nutella to my freedom. "Anything else?" She asked. I shook my head. "You may leave then. Collect your schedules from the office tomorrow." With that, I understood that I was over. Nah, just kidding.
As I walked into my school, it wasn't really weird to get those stares. I'm just too old for them to feel something new. So, it's basically sort of a... gossip centre for us where we'd buy and sell gossip for no price at all. So, the headlines of today go like something like this, "Has Sean Lanter started a charity event?" I answered all of their questions in my mind while I headed to the office to collect my new schedule. And what I didn't know was that Brett was already there. "Pinch me! You are so fine I must be dreaming." Brett flirted like always, and I just rolled my eyes. "How about I punch you and you wake up?" the infamous voice of Sean's rang in my ears and I had to control the urge to roll my eyes again. Seriously, is this the beauty and the beast? If it is, then I don't know who Gaston is. "Guys, we got our new schedules and we got to check-" "I got it covered for you." Sean spoke, "We're basically in all the classes and we have to share a few with Brett too, unfort
Sean I have been secretly admiring her for two years. In these 2 years, my fondness towards her has become all the intense and evident. I have tried really hard to get her out of my mind but every time I attempt, her blue eyes come crashing into my sight. But that didn't stop me. I can get all caveman if I want. I'd even become a vampire and hunt down people. Like any possible school, nerds are bullied in our school too. I was a bully too, that is, until I noticed Sapphire being the bullied. That's it. It was then that I realised what a horrible person I was. It wasn’t until someone I liked got hurt that I realised how hard it is for people to get through bullying. Bullying had to end. No one can bully Sapphire. But, these musing couldn't exactly help my demands since people here are too foolish for their own good that they failed to notice that Sapphire is not just a random girl. That moment when I caught some stupid seniors bullying her in the cafeteria, my eyes instantly grew
