We arrived in Southend and although it was 11 o’clock at night, Tom and I decided to go for a walk on the beach together. We found a quiet spot and sat down.
“What did I do to deserve a friend like you?” Tom asked me.
“I could say the same thing” I replied, laughing a little bit. I was still curious of what Chris had said to me earlier, this seemed like the right time to ask Tom about it. “So, now you’ve been on TV in just your speedo’s, I wonder how many teenage girls you’re going to have after you” I said to Tom.
“Hopefully not too many, the only girl I want to spend time with is you” Tom smiled at me. We were sitting there and he had his arm around my waist, holding me up against him. I was the only girl he wanted to spend time with? What did he mean by that? I will get to the bottom of this!
“It’s so nice to have a friend like you Tom” I admitted to him, wondering what his reply would be. He just sat there and stared into my eyes. I loved it when he did that, he made me melt inside.
Before I knew it, Tom’s lips came crashing against mine and I felt my whole stomach explode! It was the perfect kiss I have to admit, but I couldn’t enjoy it because I didn’t know what Tom really felt for me.
So before we could get too into the kiss, I pushed him away. He had a confused look on his face, he looked a bit hurt.
“Sorry Tom. I can’t” I said to him. He looked really confused.
“Babe, what’s wrong?” He asked.
“I need to know what you see me as Tom. I don’t just want to be some friend with benefits! I don’t understand with you, am I just a friend, or what?” I asked, feeling a tear roll down my cheek. Tom tried to wipe it away but I pushed his hand away and ran off, finding a bench on the pier to sit on.
I knew what I did was really unnecessary, I could have just asked him what I was to him, but after what Chris had told me earlier, why didn’t Tom just tell me? I wasn’t sure why I was getting so emotional about it, I guess it’s just because he’s my best friend and he should have told me.
I went running after her but it was dark so I couldn’t really see where she had gone.
I eventually found her sitting on a bench on the pier crying. I ran over to her, sat next to her and wrapped my arms around her now cold body. She didn’t try to get away from me, she just sat there and cried into my chest.
“Baby, what wrong?” I asked her, but she didn’t reply. “Please just tell me! If I’ve done something wrong you need to tell me!” I assured her.
“Chris told me earlier that you think I’m gorgeous and the best thing that’s ever happened to you, and I need to know Tom, are we just friends or what?” she said, sounding confused.
“Well, I don’t know El. I’ve been thinking the same thing” I admitted to her.
“How do you see me Tom? Like, do you just want to be friends or not?” She asked me.
“I think you’re beautiful Ella, and I love every minute I spend with you. You make me smile so much, and seeing you cry right now is breaking my heart. I’m so sorry I didn’t tell you, but you do know you can ask me anything don’t you beautiful?” She just nodded into my chest. “What about you? Do you just want to be friends?” I asked her shyly.
“I love you Tom” She looked up at me and smiled, her cheeks still wet from her tears. “No friend has ever treated me the way you do, and I feel like we’re already more than friends, that’s the only reason I got so upset, Tom. I was just confused” She swallowed, taking a deep breath and sighing. “I really like you Tom, as more than a friend” She admitted, making me blush. She didn’t see though because it was dark and the pier wasn’t very well lit.
“El, will you be my girlfriend?” I asked her shyly.
“Of course” She replied without even taking a second to think about it, she looked up at me and our lips collided. I got butterflies like never before, she made me melt inside. I couldn’t believe it. Ella was my girlfriend. MY girlfriend…
This isn't really how I wanted the plot to go, but I think it works quite well.
