Skinny Love

"Because, (Y/N), I.." Then, the door beside us opened to a familiar male. He turned his head, glancing at us, then looked away, only to turn to look at us once more.

"What?" I asked with a red face.

"Never seen a girl being pinned?" Eric finished for me, slowly moving away.

"Might wanna stop. Newbies behind me." Four shrugged, walking towards the mats.

With that, he turned his eyes straight, and walked towards the blue platforms. With a reluctant sigh, I pushed Eric away from me fully.

"Maybe some day you can actually talk to me and we'll become what we use to be." I whispered, walking pass Eric.

"You're going to regret being with him." He muttered, making me stop.

"Regret what?"

"Saying yes to something when you don't even trust him."

I sighed, "In this world, we are allowed to do one thing, Eric, to believe that we won't regret the choice we made."

I kept walking towards Four as he watched the whole scenario. He must be very amused. I kept walking, even after I heard the door slam shut, instead of it automatically shut. Four sat on the railing of the ring, pretending to not have seen/heard a single thing.

"It's okay." I smiled, even though, he couldn't see it, "I don't care. It doesn't effect me."

Four chuckled, crossing his arms over his chest.

Slowly the laughter died down, "I'm not ever going to be on his side, but.. maybe he's right. Leo just doesn't seem like.. the one for you."

I leaned against the rail he sat on.

"Maybe so, but I don't.. want to be alone anymore."

"Who said you were alone in the first place?"

"Eric. Without him in my life, it feels so lonely. Don't get me wrong, I love you like a brother, but with Eric, the gap in my mind and heart feels complete."

"But yet, you chose someone who is just tape?"

"Eric is douche, but he never gave me a chance or a hint. I tried so many times to prove to him that I did truly love him, and I'd do anything to show him or even protect him. He never once gave me a chance, Four. So, why should I waste away my love, my time for someone who won't even give me a time or day?"

Again, he let out his low chuckle, "I bet he feels the same way for you, (N/N)."

I looked over at him, tilting my head, confused. Before I could ask him what he meant, the doors swung open to the leaders leading the initiates in. I turned to the man leading them all.

"Good morning, beautiful.": He repeated like this morning.

I smiled at his voice.. even though, it's not one I want to be saying that to me.

"Morning." I giggled at the tall, excited male.

"What was wrong with Eric?" He asked, staring at me with cold eyes at the mention of Eric.
