Aria's POV

"Aria! Shut the fuck up ad listen to me!" Ana screamed on the phone.

"But-"

"Shut up!"

"Ana-"

"Shut up!" She yelled for the last time. "Okay now, take in a deep breath and clear your mind."

"Honestly-"

"Just clear your god damn mind!"

"Okay, okay." Then I did as I was told.

"Good girl, now remember Romeo and Juliet back in the ninth grade?" She questioned.

"Yea," I answered her.

"Alright, you read how fast those two fell in love. The whole love at first sight deal, so it's not impossible."

"Romeo and Juliet," I whispered remembering their tragic story.

"Now disregard their poor planning that led to their death," Ana said calmly. "But think about how much they really must have loved each other, enough to kill themselves."

I nodded my head, even though I knew she wouldn't be able to see me.

"Wait don't use that example that's a stupid example." She murmured. "Maybe... No that won't do... Well, you understand what I'm getting at."

"Right," I replied.

"So don't be scared of falling for him too fast. I mean it happens, it's completely normal."

Normal.

The word echoed inside my head.

"Adrian is also a really good guy, I mean my Uncle is his Dad's friend so if he hurts you. It won't be impossible for me to hunt him down and you know." Ana said over the phone making the situation's mood lighter.

"Thanks, Ana."

"That's what BFTIAB's are for jeez." She huffed then added. "But I doubt he'll hurt you."

"How do you know?"

"Call it a gut feeling." She laughed, "so when will you tell him?"

"Tell him what?"

"How you feel obviously, I mean the boy practically loves you."

"How do you know?"

"That family party I told you about a while ago, I told you about that right?"

"Yeah," I said getting a little anxious.

"Okay well he was trying to find someone and he wasn't exactly the most patient person."

"Who was he looking for?" I asked getting a little nosy.

"His nephew," she said quickly.

"Mhmm. So how does that prove anything?"

"As far as I know he was trying his best not to ask you out the moment he saw you." She laughed.

"Wait how does this have anything to do with the party?"

"Well he isn't the most patient person, so he's obviously restraining himself from being too forward too fast." She reasoned.

"So what stopped him?"

"Would it be wrong if I told you that he asked me for advice?"

"Ana you didn't!" I gasped.

"Oh but I did," she said suggestively.
