a/n: hi i'm back oKaY

Narrator's POV:

Hot, wet tears were threatening to fall down Noah's face, but he wouldn't allow it.

Did Angel want to break up? Noah thought. He wasn't ready to lose the love of his life when he almost lost her to certain death. Noah refused to give up on her now.

But she said 'just friends', Noah argued within himself.

Why did she say that? She knows he loves her with all of his heart. She knows that he loves her more than he even loves himself.

She knows that I would die for her, Noah told himself.

Was that her way of breaking up with him? Noah had so many questions. His mind was spinning, heart was aching, and his anger was building more and more by the second. No one knew what Angel meant, and Angel knew that she couldn't tell them or else Chloe would find out. She contemplated on actually breaking up with Noah because she couldn't stand to be apart from him, but she didn't have the heart to do it.

She has no right to break up with me that way after I saved her. I saved her and she wants to put me through all of this pain and sorrow. My heart can't take this I need to get away, Noah battled within his thoughts.

The heartbroken boy confidently walked back into Angel's hospital room.

"Can I speak to Angel alone, please," Noah asked quietly. Finn and April nodded their head. Chloe was still confused. "We need to get going anyway," April said to everyone.

Soon enough it was just Noah and Angel. All alone. In complete silence.

Neither of them knew what to say, but soon enough Noah spoke up.

"I-I don't know how to tell you this-" He started.

Finn's POV:

"Do you think they're going to break up?" I whispered to April curiously. She shrugged. "I hope not. I just hope it's all a joke and Angel can come back home and everything will be back to normal," she told me.

"But nothing will be normal again," I mumbled.

"What do you mean?"

"I mean Angel can barely walk, her and Noah might break up and if they do my best friend is going to be distant, Chloe's not herself, and..." I let my words drift.

"And?" April encouraged me to continue.

"And we need to talk about the kiss. I don't know what I was thinking.. it was wrong of me," I explained to her. She furrowed her eyebrows. "Why are you just talking about it now? Wasn't it like two months ago?!" April exclaimed a little too loudly.

"Well maybe I still have a guilty conscience for cheating! I feel awful everyday because I broke up with her about a meaningless kiss. To think that Chloe almost killed herself is really scaring me, if you didn't notice. I understand that you and her have some problems and you probably don't care about her but I do. I. care. And I'm just trying to make sure she'll be okay, but honestly you're getting in the way of that," I ranted.

"'Meaningless kiss' huh? That's how you really felt?" she retorted.

I inhaled sharply. "Yes,"

She scoffed. "If it was so meaningless then why did you break up with Chloe in the first place?" she snapped. "Because maybe I wasn't thinking and it was just a rebound?" I snapped back. Her mouth opened wide. She was surprised at what I said and at that moment I knew I had fucked up.

"I can't believe I used to like an asshole like you," she said sadly before walking off.

She used to like me?

"Wait, April! I didn't mean it!" I yelled after her. She turned around with tears forming in her eyes. I never wanted to make her cry. I truly felt like the worst best friend in the world.

"You're just like Cameron.." she said sadly before turning back around and exiting the hospital.

What have I done?

Noah's POV:

"I- I don't know how to tell you this-" I started, but Angel cut me off.

"I'm sorry about what I said. I only said it to prevent Chloe from knowing because she can't remember that we're dating. We're just going to have to keep it a secret again," she said quietly to me.

"I wanted to talk to you about that.." I dragged. Angel gave me a confused look, but I continued. "I'm not sure I want to b-be with someone who wants to keep our relationship a secret," I admitted. Her face suddenly fell and I knew she wanted me to elaborate. I knew she didn't want the words I said to be true, but I couldn't take it anymore. I didn't want to hide anymore.

"I feel if you want to hide me, then that's a sign.. that we shouldn't be together at all," I said slowly while looking down at my feet. I knew that if I looked at her, I would feel awful.

And I already feel like shit.

This is worst thing I've ever done. I can't hurt her like that, I thought to myself.

But it's for the best, my conscience argued.
