Three months had passed, Ashley was officially my boyfriend, and what a lovely boyfriend he was. He treated me like royalty, like every girl wanted to be treated. It was such a surprise that I was still with him, considering my love for Stefan was still going extremely strong and a day wouldn't go past without me thinking of him, this made me feel bad because of mine and Ashley's relationship.. But thinking of this, it could have all changed three days ago if I wasn't so stupid to stop it from happening, but I couldn't break Ashley's heart....
~Three days earlier~
Friday. Mum wasn't home, she wasn't going to be until later.. Again. The Clik Clik's practice was going to last the whole night, I knew it. I decided to close myself away in the study on the computer once again, I wasn't expecting to go anywhere tonight, Ashley had arranged to go places with his friends, I was less fortunate. I was forced out of my hole when the phone started to ring, so I ran into my room and picked the phone up, Becca.
"Hey babycakes!" She almost screached down the phone.
I calmly replied, "Hey!"
"Guess who's got a a date tonight?!"
"Rebecca?!" I shouted, she hated being called by her full name, I'm not sure why, I love the name Rebecca.
"Nope! Becca has though!"
"Oh my god! Who with?!"
"A guy called Elliot..." She cleared her throat. "Elliot Tatler" I'm guessing she met him through Stefan, because Elliot has been Stefan's really good friend for ages! Ginger.. 17, a college guy, and a developing beard.. Sort of geeky, but he was still good looking, but I never thought he'd be Becca's type, but he's extremely cute and so funny.
The conversation ended after 10 minutes of hearing her excited voice talk about what they were planning to do. I was extremely happy for her. During the conversation I heard the front door shut, I assumed Dru and the band had gone out some where. So as I put the phone back on my bedside table, I layed on my bed and sighed, closing my eyes and losing myself in my thoughts.
"EHEM!" Someone cleared their throat which made me jump up from my bed looking like a ninja.. Stefan was standing beside my door, smiling. So beautiful.
"Yo yo yo Emily."
"Alriiiight Stephanie." I winked, he walked in and sat next to me on my bed and looked into my eyes. What did he need to say.
"I need to ask you something." Oh god... "You... And Ashley." I looked up at him, clueless as to where this was going. "Do you really like him?"
"Of course I do."
"Oh.. But you look really... uncomfortable when you're with him.." He looked down at his hands.
"Well, that must be just you, because I never feel uncomfortable around my boyfriend, Stefan." I felt horrible saying it like that, to Stefan especially.. But I had no idea where this was coming from. He looked up with his gorgeous puppy dog eyes, they were twinkling where the light of my beside lamp was reflecting..
He blinked and looked at me sharply... "I just don't understand..."
"-Understand what Stefan?! There's nothing to understand!" I interrupted defensively, standing up to get away from him.
"Yes! Yes there is! I don't understand the fact that everyone can see you being so uncomfortable around your boyfriend, even Ashley himself can see it and you're the only one Em, you're the only one that can't see it clearly, is that enough to NOT understand?! And stop being so defensive!" Stefan fought back,
"I'm not being defensive! Of course I'm not uncomfortable when I'm with him, these three months have been the best three months of my life! No one has ever treated me the way he does!"
"What..... What about me?" He softly exclaimed, obviously getting upset by the argument.. Me and Stefan have never argued, we've always been so close and so friendly.
"What about you?"
"I've always treated you the way a girl should be treated.. Not that I have been your boyfriend, but I've always tried to be the equivalent of it."
"Well why haven't you ever showed you wanted to be the 'equivalent' of a boyfriend?" I had to question, butterflies going absolutely mental inside my stomach. He stood up and stepped towards my unrelaxed body.. He slowly moved his head towards mine, taking a breath before his soft, warm lips touched mine. This I didn't react to because I've ALWAYS wanted to kiss Stefan, it was my dream. I closed my eyes and wrapped my arms around his neck, moving my body closer to his until our bodies were just about touching.
I suddenly realised this was wrong. What about Ashley? He's my boyfriend.. This was extremely wrong. I pushed Stefan away from me,
"I can't." I looked down at my feet, my eyes getting blurry, this was too complicated.. "W-why did you have to do that?" Stefan stepped away shaking his head,
"BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!" He shouted, tears filling up in his eyes as well.. "I never meant for this kiss to happen during the time you were with my best friend!"
"You...You love me?" I was shocked..
"Pretty close to it, yeah." Stefan sniffled, wiping his nose, I was tempted to reply 'the feelings mutual' but I couldn't, seeing as Stef and Ash are too close.. It'll not only ruin a relationship between me and Ashley, but it'll ruin their friendship too. "I can't so this, I'm sorry I was such a dick!" He ran out of my room, slamming Dru's door. I stopped myself from running after him, I wasn't in the mood for arguing, talking or anything right now. I just layed down on my bed looking up at the ceiling, my eyes starting closing and I very quickly fell asleep.
It was such a sunny day and me and Stefan were walking hand in hand in the park just down the road from my house. We sat down and had a picnic, after this we just talked and laughed, which ended up in a cute little play fight. I landed on top of him, laughing, until the smile on his face disappeared, we were lost in each others eyes until Stef started to lean in his hand around my neck, I could feel his breath on my lips...-
I was woken up by the front door slamming and a mixed tone of laughter. Dru, Maya and Henry happily walked up the stairs, Dru looked around my door and smiled,
"Hey sorry we went out just needed to get some stuff."
"It's okay" I said sleepily. He grinned and walked into his bedroom, I could hear Stefan and he sounded miserable. I hated this.
