Ethan's P.O.V

Meridith calls me while I was driving. I kept her on speaker and debated why I was even picking it up was a good idea. 

"Hey, how's it going?" She greets.

I shook my head and sigh, "Honestly, I feel like I've done something wrong, but I dont know what. Emma's pissed at me when I said screw the haters and Twitter, and I don't know what to do with all this. I don't even know how this even happen."

"Yeah, maybe you should give her sometime, Emma's those people who don't give a fuck, but I noticed she can worry a lot while she's add it, you know."

"I know. I just don't know what to do now. I'm her boyfriend, and things aren't going the way I wanted."

"Maybe you should talk about it? Try to figure out what the problem is between you two. I don't want this to be all over like us two."

I nodded, Meridith had a point. No body knew about us, but at that time things were edgy.

"I feel like you should think about this as well. Would this affect the connection you both had? would it affect your career? Is it even going to... I dont know, work out. You, as a person, should think about your self for a moment and ponder at the future, and thoughts." She suggested.

"That's actualy not bad, hold up lemme' order real quick" I pulled up to Starbucks, ordered and waited in line at the drive through, "Anyways. Your right, but I want to be with her-"

"That's what your not understanding" she cuts me off, her voice stern, "What if she dosen't want to be with you 'cause of all this drama? what if she calls it off because of all this? she told me she hopes she dosen't get into shit like this. That's all she wants, but it's now gone..."

I sighed, paying the lady without saying thank you or even smiling, and got my drink. The fact that I hate was Meridith was right. Emma did told me about this, not wanting shit like this. She told me before we even started dating. 

"The thing is Meri, I want her, but if she wants to drop this whole thing. Then it's fine with me."

"The question is, would you let go of her first?"

Emma's P.O.V

After talking to my mom, I decided to play music loud, and did laundry. I texted Ethan and told him I was sorry to slam the door like that and if he wants he can come over.

He didn't even text back.

I was in the middle of brooming when I heard my cell ringing. I ran to it, hoping it was Ethan, but frown when I saw Meridith' s nummber. 

Yeah, her nummber.

We traded numbers at the party. She said if I needed anything to call her, or shit like that. I didn't think she would call me, nor did I think about giving my nummber to her. I picked up, just so at the end I can tell her to not call me again.

"Hello?" I picked up.

"Hey, Emma! it's me, Meridith."

I acted surprise and excited, "Oh wow, hey? what's up?'

"Nothing I just call to see how you were doing after, you know, everything."

I shrugged, "I'm fine. My friends checked up on me. "

"That's great friends you have. Do you wanna talk about it?" She ask gently.

Um, no.

"I mean there's nothing to talk about. Just the fact Ethan dosen't get it." 

"I talked to him before." of course you did, "And he said a lot of things." 

That caught my attention, "Like what?"

"Nothing really, he was stressing over the fact he was not being the great boyfriend, but also thinking if you cant handle everything, he wont mind breaking up with you."

"What?" I ask in disbelief.

"Not like that! like if it might not work out, his fine letting you go. Listen Emma, between me and you I think you should think about on yourself, and your job how this might affect any of it"

"I know. I planed things already in my head that I was suppose to talk with him in awhile. But if he really thinks this won't work out-"

"He said if you dont think this would work out."

I sighed, trying so hard not to yell scream cry or have a mental break down, "I'll talk to him."

"I just call to see how your doing. "

I smiled, "Yeah, I'm fine. Don't worry. Thanks for calling."

"No problem. Oh, please don't tell him I said that to you. He just said it and I think you deserve to know."

"You did a big help." I say. Maybe I shouldn't tell her to never call me again.

"I just want you two to work out some way. Not being those type of couples. Listen I got to go. And Emma, if you need anything, I'm only one call away."

"Thanks, bye." 

"Bye." She hung up.

Well, now I know what to do next with my life.
