A Rayla fic for Shayla_boo also known as Shay-shay!! (This is old. Plus it includes Frasmine as well...)
It was Christmas Eve. Snow was falling lightly, and sticking to the ground. The trees were bare, waiting for their leaves to grow back in the spring. It was what most people dream Christmas Eve would be like. The only thing to make this perfect was for peace and quiet, but that wasn't going to happen anytime soon...
There is a house that is near the woods. It belonged to a girl named Shayla, who was hoping her Christmas wish would come true. To be in a relationship with the guy she loved.
The story starts with her sitting on the couch watching her friends have a good time. She was having a little get together at her house, but it ended up turning into a wild party with only seven people!
Those seven people included herself, her friend Jasmine, Frank, Bob, Mikey, Gerard, and Ray. The guy she loved so much that it hurt.
She wanted to confess her feelings for him, but she didn't know how to. Those three important words she wanted to tell him would either end up with a happy result, or a bad one... a bad result that might end up ruining their friendship.
She has been friends with Ray since the fourth grade. They would always joke around a lot, and be okay with being near eachother.
But ever since she liked him in the seventh, being near him would be very awkward for her.
Later on that year she met a crazy girl named Jasmine. They became friends, which was a big change because the only friends she had were the guys. She was glad to have someone who understands her.
Shayla told Jasmine about her feelings for Ray in ninth grade and that she wasn't sure how to tell him. The only thing Jasmine told her was, "Just get off your ass and tell him flat out!"
"You're telling me that when you won't go up to Frank and tell him YOUR feelings," Shayla said.
"This isn't about me at the moment, this is about you."
Jasmine was right though. It was about her. "Promise me the next time you see Ray, you tell him."
And she broke that promise. Now here she is on Christmas Eve in her senior year, sitting on the couch of her own house and STILL didn't tell him!
/What am I thinking? Why would I tell him anyway? He might not even like me/, she thought.
"SHAY-SHAY!" she heard Jasmine yell.
She watched as Jasmine sat next to her, smiling. "Sooooooooo..."
"So what?" Shayla asked.
"Are you gonna tell him? Because if you aren't then I'm going to tell him for you."
"And if you do that I will dye your hair green when you are sleeping."
"OH COME ON! YOU'RE A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL! JUST TELL THE FUCKING MAN ALREADY!"
"Maybe things won't go as easy for me like you. You told Frank that you liked him, he turned out to have the same feelings. You go on your first date, kiss, and then BA BAM! You start dating!"
"Shayla, there's nothing to be scared of. It's just three simple words."
"Three simple words that could end up with a happy a result or a bad one, and I don't want the bad one to happen."
"You're scared that he might not like you the same?"
"Yeah! And then things will be awkward in our friendship and then we would no longer be friends..." Shayla started to cry.
"Don't cry!" Jasmine said, rubbing Shayla's back. "If you cry then I'll start c-crying..." Then Jasmine started to cry.
Shayla looked at her friend. "Why are you crying?" she asked.
"Because you were crying. I hate seeing the people I love crying. You're like a sister to me..."
Shayla smiled and hugged Jasmine. "I love you," she said.
Jasmine pulled away and smiled. "Now, if only you can say those words to Ray that simple."
"You have to love me though."
"I'm just going to walk in the woods for a bit." Shayla got off the couch and walked to her front door.
"Watch out for Slenderman."
Shayla giggled and walked out.
Jasmine looked out the windows to make sure Shayla was gone, and ran up the stairs. "FRANK! WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU!" Jasmine yelled.
"IN HERE!" he yelled back.
Jasmine walked in Shayla's room and saw Frank drawing on Gerard's face. "Is Ray in the woods?" Jasmine asked.
"Yeah. Near the lake. Why?"
Jasmine giggled. "Stop doodling on Gerard's face. We're going in the woods."
Meanwhile Shayla was walking over to her favorite place in the woods. The lake. It was a beautiful sight at night.
Snow was still falling. There was about an inch of snow on the ground by now.
Shayla stopped walking when she reached the lake. There was somebody else there. "Ray? Is that you?" she asked.
The person looked. "Yeah it's me," he replied.
She smiled and ran towards him. "Why are you out here?" Shayla asked.
"I just needed air. A lot of thoughts have been flowing through my mind."
There were only a few minutes of silence until Ray finally spoke up. "Can I tell you something Shay?"
"Anything!" /Oh shit/, Shayla thought.
Ray took her hand and took her over under a tree. "Man..."
"I wanted to tell you something but, I just don't know how to tell you," Ray said.
"Well, can I at least tell you something?" Shayla asked.
Come on tell him. Those three words. "I-I love you."
Oh no... "I love you Ray."
"Yeah. I understand if you don't feel the same but I just needed to tell you." She looked at the ground. I knew it...
"Shayla." He sighed.
"I love you too."
Shayla looked at him. "R-Really?"
"Yeah." Ray looked up. "Hey. What is that?" he asked.
Shayla looked up and giggled. "Mistletoe."
Ray looked at Shayla, and Shayla looked back. Ray then kissed Shayla on the lips softly, then hugged her.
"Be my girl?" he asked.
Shayla kissed Ray again. "Yes."
Little did Ray or Shayla know, Frank and Jasmine were watching them the whole time.
"My little Shay-shay grew up," Jasmine whispered, pretending to wipe a tear.
Frank looked at Jasmine and kissed her cheek, holding a mistletoe above them. Jasmine just giggled, and looked at her friend. Turns out it's the happy result.
10 years later
Shayla was near the same lake she was before. She was looking at her wedding ring. He's all mine.
Ray walked up behind her, hugging her from behind. "Hey. What are you doing out here?" he asked.
Shayla turned around and saw Ray was holding a mistletoe above his head. She giggled and kissed him. "I'm glad to be with you," Ray said.
