This took way longer than it should have... *sigh*

Where I got most of my information:   

Forgive Me

Rated R


Come on, Shawn, you can do this. Just take a deep breath and open the door.

I took a deep breath, messed up my blonde hair nervously, and went as far as grabbing the door knob before freaking out and letting go again.

I can't do it! I thought.

I was about to spend another couple of minutes hyping myself up when the door suddenly opened in front of me. I squeaked and jumped away from the door. When I saw who it was, I blushed deeply in embarrassment.

He was leaning against the door frame, his arms crossed and showing off his muscles. The breeze from outside blew his black hair around his face, messing it up even more. His blue eyes were twinkling in amusement.

"Are you just going to stand out here all night?" he asked.

His deep voice sent shivers through my body. Luckily, the cold night air was an awesome excuse to use to disguise my lust for him.

I put a fake scowl on my face and looked up at his face, fixing my green eyes on his own royal blues. "Stop being an ass, Ember, and let me inside. It's freaking cold out here."

Ember moved aside to let me slip inside past him and I hurried inside. I hadn't been lying when I told him it was cold outside, and it felt like my fingers were about to fall off. Stupid Montana nights.

I kicked my shoes off and rushed over to the fireplace in the living room, knowing the house like the back of my hand. I sat down a couple of feet in front of the crackling fire, my knees to my chest and my hands slightly extended. Ember sat down beside me, waiting for me to explain why I had called him late at night saying that I needed to come over.

"Why are you here?" he asked after a few minutes of me silently pondering how to start.

I gulped and wrapped my arms around my knees, staring at the carpet. "I have to tell you something," I whispered to my knees.

"Then tell me, it's not like my parents will overhear. It's date night, remember?" he said, sounding impatient.

I chewed on my bottom lip nervously, ignoring his command. What if he hates me?

Ember sighed loudly and turned my head towards him forcefully. "Tell me!"

I squeezed my eyes shut, refusing to look at him. "You'll hate me!"

"Shawn, I could never hate you. We've been best friends since elementary school. Just tell me what's wrong."

I slowly open my eyes and met his. "Are you sure?"

"Of course," he whispered, fear at what I might say tainting his blue eyes.

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath to calm myself before opening them again to steel myself.

"I'm in love with you, Ember."

Ember froze in shock for a moment before quickly coming back to his senses. He hastily let go of my face, pulled away from me and began to pace.

"Please tell me you're joking," he begged as he stopped a few feet in front of me.

I ducked my head down to hide the tears that were gathering in my eyes. "I'm not," I whispered.
