"DUDE, YOU COULD'VE TOLD HIM THEN AND THERE, YOU'RE SUCH A COWARD-"

"I needed time to think about what I said, Tessa, Perhaps he really just didn't care."

"HIM? NOT CARING? MAYBE BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID THAT YOUR FRIENDSHIP WILL COME TO AN END! WHY, CAUSE OBVIOUSLY HE LIKES YOU TOO!"

I smiled wide at that thought. I looked at Tessa. "You really think so?" Tessa rolled her eyes and slammed the table.

"You know what? I'm heading to the gym. All this bickering is pointless." I stopped Tessa right before she stood up and pleaded.

"Last advice? Please? I-I will um.. do something in return like uh.."

"Tell him what you feel properly and that's final." Tessa stood up eventually and left me in the buffet. Aaaah I'm all alone now! With my thoughts!

"Your advice is clichè!"

"Well then maybe you shouldn't have Tom!"

I heard Tessa shout back, and I just stared at her silhouette disappear. What do I do, we're meeting like tomorrow! How do I do this properly? I'm such a dork. I'm also planning on using that neurolizer (or neutralizer? i don't know anymore) on Tom so he forgets. Might as well me because I would like to forget about that embarrassing confession thingy and my feelings.

Even if I forget my feelings, I'd fall for him over and over. Every single day I do.

"You're such a coward." I buried my face on my palms, sighing. This isn't impossible if I had more confidence.

My phone rang and I answered a call, from Lizzie. She straight up asked, without any greeting, "You two together yet?"

"Nope. I was busy."

"Oh." Lizzie sighed from the other line. "Mib? I understand, but you should still go get Tom. He's a wonderful man."

"Not really Mib, but yes.."

"What other thingn could you be busy with? I understand your kids may be a priority too but what else?"

"Maybe I was busy being a coward." Then, Lizzie scoffed. I prepared myself for a shout in the ear and a long lecture.

"CHRIS FREAKING HEMSWORTH!!"
