My broken, bad boy neighbour
"Living life on the edge is all you need, before you fall with no regrets." I say slowly, locking eyes with the boy who stood in the hall, his eyes brimming with tears.
"Why didn't you tell me?" He said, stuttering slightly as I lowered my eyes and began to take a particular interest in the floor.
"No regrets." I whisper, then collapse onto the floor.
Autumn is a shy girl, a nice girl. One that also happens to speak out of her ass at the worst times, she lives in the moment and lives by the saying it's better to act first and ask for forgiveness later.
She was both intrigued and terrified when she first set her eyes on her mute, neighbour Jesse who happened to make her blush like a cherry red lobster whenever he caught her wistful gaze. She didn't intend to infatuate herself with him, she had her own problems that had to be felt with. They weren't supposed to end up together, a good girl and the bad boy...
But as always, opposites do attract.
