As I head to Starbucks a million different thoughts ran through my head. None of them ending well. All of them ended with me helping the guy I have liked for years getting a different girl.
I walked into Starbucks and saw Olly sitting at a table in the corner with two coffees. Soon as I saw him I couldn't help but smile. There is just something about being around him that makes everything else go away, and it makes me the happiest girl ever. Maybe its his teddy bear eyes, that could melt your heart, or his perfect smile, or the way he does his hair. Just a little pushed up in the front. Or maybe its just the fact he is Oliver Goulding.
"Hey there!" Olly said as he got up and gave me a hug.
"Oh my, a hug and coffee! What did I do to deserve all of this love?" I asked jokingly as I sat down next to him in the corner chairs.
"Nothing special, just you being you." Olly replied with a smile and a wink. All of the sudden I was just very confused! Its almost like he was flirting.
"Aw, well thank you!" I said, "Its been an odd day, and this is much needed!" I replied while taking a sip from my white mocha latte, and I thought back to the conversation I had just been having with Lace for the past few hours and then I let out a tiny sigh.
"Ok so um, I feel weird doing what I am about to do." Olly said nervously, "But in light of recent events I've decided to do this. Now when I say what I'm going to say I need you to be 100% honest, and I don't want it to change anything between us unless you agree. Promise me?" Olly explained, and asked.
My heart started to race, great he likes Lace, my best friend. No he can't, I thought to myself. They never get along, but he did ask for it to be me so maybe he wants me to help him with her. I stopped thinking about this and just said sure in a nervous tone to Olly. Olly put his hand on mine and then started to talk again which he has never done.
"Melissa, I like you as more than a friend. Like I've had this major crush on you for a while now, but I never said anything because, I don't actually know why, but yeah. Um, and now I've decided to tell you... So I was hoping maybe we could start hanging out as more than just friends, and maybe more on our own, and maybe I could take you out for dinner as a date, and uh, I'm just rambling now so please say something." He said all flustered.
I sat there in complete shock with the largest smile ever. Olly just admitted he likes me, and I like him, which means there is something here. Then my smile faded thinking about the fact Ollys best friend just asked me out. "Olly, I'll be honest," I said with a smile, "I've felt the same way for a very long time about you."
"Are you serious?" Olly laughed with a sound of relief.
"Yes" I blushed while feeling a huge weight come off my shoulders.
"You should of said something Mel!"
"I know, but you know me, I'm pretty quiet, and I don't just go around to guys saying Oh Hi I Like You!" I laughed.
Olly smiled, "So does this mean we are gonna try this whole boyfriend girlfriend thing?".
"Sure" I giggled. "Wow, we sound like we are in middle school yet we are what 20!?".
"Oh well!" Olly said and laughed.
We continued to talk for the next hour and then Olly started to bring up Bryan which brought all of that drama back to my thoughts.
"Oh Olly! Ummm, I need to tell you something." I slowly said in a serious tone.
"Well you know how you said Bryan asked someone out?"
