"I'll be going now." I said, then, quickly walked away.
"Where are you going?" He followed me and matched my pace.
"Any place without you," I said. I don't know why I am being harsh to him; I think I'm just comfortable to roast him. I am someone who takes care of what people might be sensitive about, I spoke nicely and with respect with everyone except my friends, I sometimes roast them because that's how friends do.
"Too bad because I will stick with you from now on," he chuckled.
"Don't you have anything to do?" I asked. I'm getting annoyed because I want to read and with him by my side, I won't be able to concentrate.
"I have now." He grins.
"Then go away, I'm busy." I walked much faster.
Of course, he is catch up again. "You are not gonna ask what is it?" He looks at me, pleading and doing cute poses.
"No, I am not interested." I directly said.
"That's mean," he murmured.
"How is that mean?" I asked while still walking, why does it feel like the library felt so far?
"That's a mean thing to say to your friend," he said with his face like he is hurt. I looked at him unbelievably.
"How are we friends? You don't even know me." I scoffed. Is this Vaughn guy seriously nuts, or just bored?
"I know you, you’re Avis Clove. That means we're friends, right?" He said after looking at my ID, really bruh?
"I don't want to have an ugly friend." I chuckled and look at the building in where the library is located.
"Sweet, that means we could be friends now." He grins and did a little hooray pose.
I laughed and shakes my head, "No, you are under qualified; you can’t even pass the screening process."
He retaliated and kept on complaining about my opinion on him until I am on the front of the library. He still kept on murmuring until he noticed where we were. "What? Why are we in the library? Are you going to look for something?"
"Yes, we are looking for your brain." I did the process and the he did too in order to get inside. "Can I look for you heart here too?" He whispered.
"It's not here, I gave it to someone." I whispered back and laugh. We sat on the last row and I take out my book to read.
He also has his book that he just snatched from some shelves but didn't even open it. He leaned closer to mine and whispered, "To whom?"
I pretended to be irritated and looked back at him and take out my paper and wrote, 'shut up'.
He chuckled and takes my pen and paper. He wrote, "Tell me first," and draw a sad stickman next to it.
I just chuckled and mouthed, 'no way' and proceed to read the book. He kept on giving me sad faces but I just ignored him and read this good book.
After a full blow of reading book, I noticed he stopped and he fall asleep. I stared at him and noticed his features; he is actually handsome and cute at the same time. He looks very gentle when he is asleep. He has this long thin eyelashes and plum lips that every girl would be jealous of. He has fair skin and his hair look so soft. I would kill for his features to be mine, If she was girl, I bet she will be Aphrodite's descendant.
"Enjoying the view?" He suddenly opened his eyes and looked straight to mine.
I just laughed and said "Maybe."
This, being with him, might not be that bad.
That guy, Vaughn Hirsch. I can’t stop thinking about how he ruined my reading time, yet he is so fun to be with. I’m blowing my rants to Tess who’s sitting beside me doodling in her notebook. We are now in an empty classroom since there is no class. I left Vaughn in the library 30 minutes later. I guess he went in the field to play football because I saw someone again outside the library asking for him again.
“Uh-huh, he’s hot than Skylar.” She commented. I’m not talking about hotness. Jeez. I rolled my eyes.
“It is not about hotness.” I said.
“You know, I still don’t get why you like Skylar.” She said then looks at me.
“I mean he is quiet, arrogant, insensitive guy I’ve met and you like him for stupidly almost 4 years!” she exclaimed. She is actually overreacting. Skylar is not arrogant; he has just a truthful mouth. He is not quiet; he just doesn’t want to interact with so much people. He hates it. He is not insensitive; he actually cares to people around him.
I remember how he offers to walk me home back when we are in 10th grade, because it’s dark outside and its past 9. I thought he doesn’t care, but no. While walking, I noticed that everything seems much darker. The other post lights and streetlights went out, and some of it is blinking. I felt scared, but then I realized I was with Skylar, and he is beside me, and then I wasn’t scared any more. His presence makes me feel I’m safe. That is also the time I fall for him. He walks me home after our group project in one of our classmates’ house. While walking, I smell his manly perfume. It is not too strong, that’s why I like it. He opened up a conversation about our project, and I answered him and commented to all he says. I heard him laugh when I say a funny thing comment about our project. That night I can’t sleep, I can’t get my mind off with his smell and laugh, and the way he talks. Then, I remember his features that I like, his blue eyes as blue as the sky above. So dark and deep that when you look at it too long you may get lost, and his hair like the hair of Leonardo Dicaprio when he was a teenager.
Back to the present, earlier in the library, I got the nerves to half-way confess. Does he know it all this time? Is he just pretending he doesn’t know? Then, he asks me because he wants to confirm it? Ugh! This is stressing me. “Hey! Tess?” I called then standing up in my seat. “Yeah?” she replied. “Skylar’s hotter than Vaughn. Remember that he is also part of the team in football. We’ve seen his abs when he removed his shirt in the field. Remember?” I rebutted to her comment earlier. I get my tumbler and walk away, before I closed the door, I turn to her. She looked above with her mouth slightly open. “Yeah, right. I forgot.” She said. I laughed. I turn away, now heading to cafeteria. Then, I saw him, Tessa’s and I topic back in the classroom. He is leaning his back in a wall. There are bullets of sweat rolling down from his hair to his temple then his cheeks. His shirt is wet, so I can see his abs forming in his shirt. I not
"Vaughn, stop, it's not funny" I said but I didn't bother to remove it, I have no strength."Come on, Avis, why are you silent? Do you need to go to the bathroom, don’t worry I can cover for you," he chuckled and let go of my face.What surprises me is a big chocolate pouch drink on his other hand on the front of my face."Sweets can make you feel better when you have loose bowel movement," he told me and put the drink in both of my hands.It made my heart warm and feels good. I clasped it with my own two hands, it made my feelings lighter than before. I just chuckled and tap him on his back, "Thank you."I get the straw at back and put it at the designated hole in the pouch drink. Then we just sat on a bench. I didn’t notice we were on the school park in where vending drink machines are just around the area."You need to dry clean my handkerchief
Now that I thought about him again, I felt tears starting to form again. I’m mad at him for rejecting me even if I didn’t actually confessed to him, also because he is maybe the reason Penny is back. If she wasn’t back, my friend wouldn’t suffer. I get that Tess is an amazon girl and she is also fearless and a fighter, but she doesn’t deserve what happened. She doesn’t deserve the pain because, Penny is insane. And I…. I don’t deserve this pain given by Skylar because, I haven’t even confessed to him properly. That’s unfair. But, I’m not really confessing, since I was already rejected.Maybe that is the thing about liking someone for too long. Liking someone for too long doesn’t mean they have to like you back too. And maybe, Skylar is really insensitive, he just said ‘stop liking me’ casually. Like it was a line from a movie and he wanted to try it to someone, and then he chose me.Fr
“Grandma, can I ask a question?” I asked.“What is it darling?” she smiled at me then, held my hand.I looked at her.“In all of the stories you told me up until now that I’m close to a grown up woman, I’m 17 now, if you’re missing it grandma. So, why does the girl in your story always die?” I curiously asked.I wonder why the girl in her story named Avis like mine, always dies. The happenings in the story changes, but the ending is still the same, I’m getting pissed off by that. “Because, she always chooses to save him. She always wants to save him.” She answered as she caresses gently my hands.“That’s how love works; you get to experience sacrificing your own happiness or even own life for the sake of your love ones.” She continued.“Is she
Vaughn walks until he reached beside me. “What are you doing here?” I asked him. “That should be my question. It’s past 1 A.M. and you are still roaming around outside.” He said, concerned. Then, he looks at Skylar. “What are you planning to do this time, Skylar? He asked to Skylar. “Just like what you did earlier.” Skylar answered with a grin in his face. “Stop it. She’s innocent.” Says Vaughn as he glared to Skylar. “Really?” Skylar smirked then glanced at my side. “If you are talking about me, yes I’m innocent.” I said to Skylar and there is still his smirking face. “I don’t think so.” He answered. He looks like he is enjoying this conversation because he is smiling to annoy me and Vaughn. “What?” I exclaimed. “Why do you have the necklace?” he asked. And the smile in his face is now gone. “What necklace?” I asked back. Now that he mentioned it. I roam my hands around my neck to feel m
“That is hilarious! I wish I was there! Oh my god! I missed every exciting moments that happened to you!” commented by Tess. She’s so happy even that she was stabbed yesterday. I don’t know why she still attends school today when she’s injured. Its lunch now and we’re here in a café talking about what happened last night and what I think about the two having a steamy romantic relationship between them. But, my mind is flying somewhere, so I cannot focus to Tessa’s comments after I told her the story. Early this morning, I woke up from a dream and there are tears on my cheeks again, but this time, my grandma was not there telling stories. Instead, I was there, I am the girl; I received a necklace, from a guy whom I don’t know, but he looks like Skylar. He has Skylar’s resemblance when it comes to eyes, nose and lips. Also, I feel like I’m the girl there in that dream, but I feel like it’s a different girl too. It’s so frustrating! I gently messed my ha
“Aren’t you gonna ask where I am going?” Penny asked. Well to be honest I don’t care where she would go. I don’t even care about her existence. “You’re still cold-hearted asshole god.” She commented. “And you are not?” I rebutted to her. She’s acting like she’s isn’t evil like me, I hate it. “Can’t you even thank me for travelling around this world just to find the balance, I mean the girl?” She asked. “Just go.” I just said and gets into my car then, drive away from her. It’s been hundred years when I exist here on earth and we still haven’t find the girl who is also called the balance. She is fated to be the balance of Dark which is me, and Light which is fucking Vaughn. If she was found first by Vaughn, and didn’t die for about three months after we had found her existence, then I will die, so I need to find her first to kill her so she can’t balance us and Vaughn will die. That is our fate. I kill the balance
I woke up from a loud bang from what I know is happening outside. After that, I heard a continuous shouting also from outside, from which I recognized a woman's voice and a man’s voice. I tried to remember what happened earlier, but I couldn't. I looked around the room and there's no special about it. I just found books, shelves, cabinets, and a long sofa, with the room’s gray motif, including gray bed sheet, pillowcase, sofa, and curtains. Just when I realized I wasn't in my own house. This isn’t Tessa’s room. There’s no room like this in Tessa’s house. Where am I? Did I just enter someone’s home without permission? Questions flooded my brain. All I remember is I was escaping from Skylar because of the embarrassment I did. I go down from the bed and wear the slippers waiting there. “You’re awake.” I look above to the person entered the room. I didn’t hear the door opened though. It’s Skylar. Why is he here? Wait… is this his f
