Chapter 5- Advice

My heart skipped a beat. Zoe's mouth dropped and Alfie looked at Marcus, avoiding my eye. I looked at Marcus. He was staring at me and his face was emotionless. I looked at my feet.

"Erm, I... it's just... ah..um," I stammered. I could feel my cheeks glowing.

I ran into Zoe and Alfie's room and sat on the bed.

I didn't like Marcus that way, did I? Did he? Marcus and I had been the best of friends since I could remember. He had been there for me when I was bullied, and when he was sad I was there for him. I saw him as a friend, didn't I? I wasn't so sure anymore. Lately I had been feeling weird about him, like there were feelings there that I didn't know existed.

The door opened. In walked Zoe and she sat on the bed next to me. She looked at me and then I burst into tears. She hugged me tightly.

"I just don't...know what to do," I said as we parted and Zoe looked at me. Suddenly something dawned on me.

"Did you know?" I asked her.

"Yeah," she looked down," I'm so sorry Niomi. He made me keep quite. Alfie knew too."

"It's okay, I'm not mad," I said smiling at her.

"Do you like him back?" She asked quietly.

I didn't reply. Did I? Whenever Marcus talked to me now I got butterflies in my stomach.

"Yes," I whispered.

Her eyes lit up. "Really?!" She asked.

"Yeah, I think so," I replied," Zoe?"

She looked at me,"Yeah?"

"How did you know you loved Alfie?"

She looked startled. "Well, every time we talked I got butterflies in my stomach. Whenever he talked to any other girl I got jealous. Louise was the only one who knew. She kept trying to get us to meet up. She invited us over all the time and I had to sleep on the double sofa once with him. We were all wrapped up on the sofa and I just looked at him and he looked so happy and peaceful. I knew that I loved him. That he was the one," she finished.

"What do you think I should do?"

"I think you should go for it. Marcus loves you Niomi, he really does. He was so nervous to ask you out in case you said no. If you love him back, go for it."

I hugged her. "Thank you so much Zoe. You're the best friend anyone could have," I said.

She grinned at me. "Anytime, now come on let's get you out there to your man," she smiled.

I wiped my eyes and smiled. We walked out of the room into the living room. Marcus and Alfie were sat on the sofa watching the match. Marcus's eyes were puffy and red. He didn't look at us. Zoe sat down next to Alfie and he wrapped his arms around her.

"Marcus?" He looked at me.

"Yes," I said.

His eye lit up and he grinned, leaping up and hugging me. He leaned in for a kiss and I didn't stop. As our lips touched I felt fireworks go off inside of me and we deepened the kiss. I broke away after a while. He grinned at me.

"EW guys get a room!!" Alfie squealed in a high-pitched girly voice. Zoe slapped his arm disapprovingly. I grinned. Zoe was right. Marcus was the one.


So guys, I'm gonna try writing more often but I'm starting school in a few days so I don't know how often I will be able to post, but please tell anyone who uses wattpad to give my story a read :)

Also, suggestions for storylines would be cool if you wanted to just don't make it too major.
