An Emotional Farkle

Riley's POV

Why am I still awake? I mean. It's 11:30 at night. As Riley Matthews it's a sin! Oh what the hell. I can't stop thinking about him. Farkle is a friend, my BEST friend. But the way we are around each other is different now. Different than ever before. I don't know how to explain it, it's just--

Knock. 3 knocks on my bay window. What?

I turn around, get out of my bed and see it's a shadow, a strange shadow that  I don't know who it belongs to. The shadow turns around and it's a crying Farkle, soaked in the rain panting for me to let him in.

"Farkle! What's going on? It's almost midnight? Why are you here, it's pouring outside.."

At this point I'm wondering if those drops coming out of his eyes are just the rain or actually his.

"I need to talk to you. I can't do this alone."

He starts wailing and at this point all I can do is embrace him into a warm and heavy hug. He cries into my shoulder.

"Thank you."

I smile.

"It's what I'm here for, Farkle. Just let it out. Let it all out."

He comes out from the hug and smiles as I wipe his tears off of his face.

"It's my parents. My mother never came home last night. She and my father have been arguing for months over business. I can't stand it. Even my positive Farkle mind can't."

He cries and I rub his shoulders and take off his wet blue jacket so he would stop shivering.

"R-r-iley."

"Yes?" I smile.

"They're getting divorced."

"I'm sorry. You've been through a lot this month, with you and Smackle breaking up, and with your parents. I'm so sorry. You deserve nothing but love, Farkle. And you're getting it now, okay? I love you."

He blushes, and for the first time in forever, his smile lights up his whole face. I love him. I want to tell him.

"I don't think I can ever love again. Because no one cares. They don't care about me enough to love me for who I am, Riley. I want someone to care. You've always cared. And thank you SO much for that. You're the best thing that's happened for me, Riley. I truly mean it."

I put my hands on the sides of his face.

"You deserve the world. I love you."

"No one will ever love me. I don't know. I just want to be love-"

I stop him and kiss him. I kiss him hard, because he deserves it, and he kisses back. He is taken by surprise but the kiss is sweet, and warm and we're both smiling through it together.

"Wow. Little did I know one day Riley Matthews would want me. Because I need you."

I pull him back towards my bed, so we can talk.
(nope, no funny business tonight, my parents are still awake).

We lay down. And I rest my hand on his chest as he looks over to me and strokes my cheek.

"I love you, Riley. I always did. I always knew."

"I love you too. And I should've realized earlier, because what we have, it's all real and beautiful."

We laugh as both of our eyes close as we fall asleep together side by side in my bed at midnight. Perfect.
