I don't know if I can bring myself to do it. Just the look on his face is preventing me from speaking. I felt like my throat was closing up as I stared at him. Concern and worry were clear on his face.
"Do you want to come in Vi? So we can talk in here?" I nodded and he stepped aside so I could move past him into the house. We walked into the living room and both sat on the couch a distance from each other. I places my hands in my lap and feeling nervous. Heh, I find that ironic. After all this I'm actually nervous.
Madison the evil witch put me in a position where I had absolutely no choice. Either I Elliot right now that she was pregnant or she would go to everyone I know that doesn't know about what Elliot and I have been doing after we broke up. The thing about this town is how many people talk and being Friend's With Benefits isn't exactly similar to winning a Noble Peace Prize.
She knew I was planning on telling Elliot that I was in love with him after hearing him say it to me in the hospital. It was intense, like a slap in the face.
But I realize now how much I really could lose Elliot permanently after I tell him this. Everything that was building up to this moment could be ruined.
"Elliot... I have to tell you..."
He moved closer to me and rested his arm around me. It was light at first and I almost felt it and when my breath started getting shorter his arm went tighter around my shoulders. "Before you tell me anything there is something I have to tell you. And I'm going to try and say this in the manliest way possible even though it's probably going to sound really girly," he smiled, "But you like romance so I guess it's okay"
"Wait Elliot I have to-"
He put his hand up to stop me. “No Violet, I have to get this out first or I’ll never say it” I clamped my mouth shut and let him continue. “For the longest time I’ve been sort of lying to you Violet. Not in a big way, just I haven’t been completely honest” He took a deep breath and collected my hands in his. “Okay. I love you Violet and when we broke up I never stopped loving you. As cliché as it sounds I cannot imagine my life without you”
My eyes went wide and my jaw dropped. I remembered Elliot saying that in the hospital but I would picture him actually saying all of this. The, Elliot Ritchers, confessing his love for me. Who would have thought? But that just made this hurt a lot more.
He took his hand away from mine and cupped my cheek. I leaned in almost dream-like and shut my eyes. “I can’t think of anyone but you. And I want to be with you no matter what anyone else says”
He pulled my face close to him and delicately he kissed me. My chest was pounding with force. Those predictable butterflies fluttered around in my stomach like they were dancing and I clung onto him as he held me tighter.
When we broke apart he looked relieved. I on the other hand looked like I was about to pass out. The worried look went on his face again. “Are you okay?”
I shook my head. “I knew” I choked out. I opened my eyes and smile faintly. “I heard you at the hospital when you told me you loved me. And I love you too” He turned crimson and it made me smirk. “Wow, I never thought I’d see the day where you blushed because of me”
He narrowed his eyes but smiled. “Don’t get so used to it Purple”
My smile faded when I heard the name. My mind restarted to the purpose I was in his living room for. When he reached for my face again I drew back. “What’s the matter?”
I avoided his gaze. “Elliot I-“
“Well, well. I knew you wouldn’t be able to do it. I thought we were friends Violet” Madison’s fake nice voice chirped causing both Elliot and I to jump back from each other. How the hell did she get here so fast?
She crossed over to where we were sitting and walked by Elliot. She had put her hair in pigtails and even changed her outfit. She looked like a hillbilly slut in her outfit. Probably was she was going for.
She took a deep breath and started shaking. “Elliot. I have to tell you something. I’m pregnant and I’m keeping the baby. Violet told me that it’d be best if she told you instead of me since you two are such great friends”
