Look at her. All over him, being all lovey dovey. She doesn’t love him though. She only wants him for his fame and money. It’s a shame though, because she’s so sweet and all. But still, I wish I could be her. She’s gorgeous, just like a model. Me? I’m just normal. Only known as Nathan Sykes’ best friend, nothing more. I know it may be weird to have a crush on your best friend, but knowing him for a long period of time… I can’t really explain. The thing is, I’ve never told him that I’m in love with him and I don’t think I ever will. I don’t think I could handle the rejection if I did.
“Nooo don’t go please!” Nathan groaned. “I have to silly! I’ll be late for work! I’ll see you later okay?” She said, pecking his lips. Every time I saw them kiss, it always broke me a bit. The things I would give to be her… Everything. She left, leaving Nathan and I sat in the living room. There was an awkward silence for a bit, until he broke it. “Alright there Orlagh?” He asked. “What? Oh, yeah. I’m fine.” I lied. I smiled at him, but he wasn’t buying it. “I know there’s something wrong. Please tell me?” He gave me the puppy dog face and I laughed. “I’m fine Nathan. I promise.” “You sure?” He asked raising an eyebrow. I sighed and looked away from him. I was going to speak the truth. He needs to know that she doesn’t really love him- that he’s not the only one she’s seeing. How do I know? I saw her kissing another guy at the coffee shop just down the road the other day. And it didn’t seem like a friendly kiss at all…
“It- It’s about Angelina…” I sighed. Nathan furrowed his eyebrows. “I-I just don’t think she’s right for you…” I trailed off. “Why?!” his voice grew louder. I hated it when he was angry. I should have never said anything… “B-because… I just don’t think she loves you Nath!” “Why would you say something like that?! Are you jealous?!” Now I started to grow angry. Yes, I am jealous, but I can’t tell him that, can I? I’m just looking out for him! I can’t stand to see him hurt…
“Are you kidding me?! You think that I’m saying this because I’m jealous? It’s called being a good friend Nathan! I’m just looking out for you!” I shouted back. “Well if you were being a ‘good friend’ you would be happy for me! But I guess not.” He spat. I can’t believe this. I tried to hold back the tears that were about to spill out. Had I just lost my best friend, the love of my life for good? “I think you should leave.” He said. And with that, I got up and left.
One month. It’s been one month since our fight. One month since he’s been out of my life. No calls, texts or visits. Yes, he’s still going out with Angelina. But it’s his life. I can’t control it. I sighed as I turned my TV off, not finding anything amusing to watch. I decided that I would go out for a change, so I put on my shoes and coat and headed out into the winter evening. I didn’t know where I was going, I just let my feet take me where I wanted to go. But not looking where I was going, I bumped into someone. “Oh I’m so-“ “Orlagh…” Nathan breathed. What I really wanted to do was just walk away, but I just couldn’t… “Nath… H-how are you?” I said softly. “I’m… Okay I guess…” He seemed upset by something.
“Oh…” I trailed off, not knowing what to say next. It’s been a month! “Look… I’m really sorry.” Nathan whispered. “W-what for?” “For treating you like complete crap… I-I should’ve seen it coming! I saw her! She-She was cheating on me! I’m so sorry Orlagh… You were right…” He sobbed. I didn’t know what to say… I wrapped him in a tight hug, whispering in his ear. “I’m sorry Nathan.” He pulled away and I looked into his eyes. His eyes were so gorgeous and it made me melt every time he looked back into my greeny blue ones. “What for?” “For not being there when you needed me…”
He chuckled and moved a strand of my brown hair out of my face. “Do you know what I realized after all of this though?” He asked, still looking into my eyes. “No, what?” He moved in closer, smiling at me. “I realized that after we broke up, I was never really affected as much… Because… Because I love you.” Oh my God… He loves me back… He slowly leaned in and placed a soft and passionate kiss on my lips. It felt so good to kiss him. It felt… Right. I felt him smile into the kiss. He soon pulled away.
“I love you too.”
He smiled and kissed me again. “Will you be mine Orlagh?” I felt my heart beat faster, the smile still on my lips. “Of course I will Nathan.” We both walked off hand in hand back to his flat. Finally, I can now say I’m dating the boy of my dreams, Nathan Sykes.
Hope you enjoyed it!! :D xxx
