Chapter 13

3rd party POV

Summer and Blake are so engrossed in their own conversation that they didn’t realise the whole table had stopped talking and were watching them intently, they only realised when they heard a loud cough

Declan – cough cough – now that ye have prised ye’re eyes away from each other and have come back into the real world, maybe you could finally answer the question I’ve asked 3 times?

Summer – sorry what?

Everyone starts laughing while Blake and Summer start blushing

Declan – I had asked you what the sleeping arrangements were now that ye have 3 extra bodies for Thanksgiving but from watching the display ye just put on, I’m guessing I know who is sleeping where.

Summer – DAD!

Declan – remember my motto boy – wrap it before you tap it

Adi – AMEN to that!

Everyone starts laughing again while Summer bangs her head on the table. Blake slodes his palm in under Summers forehead to stop her getting hurt. Summer glances at him and smilwa

Dinner is over, Matt, Adi and Cian help clean up the dishes and clean the kitchen

Blake – do you wanna sit outside by the fire pit?

Summer – yeah sure

Blake and Summer make their way to the fire pit, it’s a bit chilly so Blake grabs a blanket and puts it over himself and Summer, giving him more reason to have them sitting close together

Blake – so Adi is a cool guy

Summer smiling – yeah he really is the best

Blake – he loves you, you know

Summer – yeah I know, I love him too. He is my best friend. I would be lost without him. People don’t get our friendship and tend to jump to conclusions that we are dating or sleeping together but it’s not like that at all. He is my go to person you know?

Blake – I won’t lie, when I saw how you two reacted to each other in the canteen, I thought the same thing

Summer – uh, that explains that then (whispering under her breath)

Blake – but from speaking to both of ye, it is clear to see that the love ye have for each other is more of a deep love for two friends that appreciate each other. Ye are very lucky to have each other. Other people should be lucky to have someone like that in their lives

Summer – so you don’t think that me and Adi are a couple?

Blake – being honest, I did at first, how could I not, ye look perfect together, he brings out a happiness in you that I haven’t seen before. I only wish I could give something that kind of happiness

Summer – you can do Blake, all it takes is total honesty. If you have someone in your life that you want to give your true happiness to then you need to let them know.

Blake – but what if I try and they reject me?

Summer – you can’t live life with what ifs? That is no way to live. Life is for experiencing new things, sure there will be plenty of laughs and love along the way but there is also going to be some heart break. If you think you have someone special in your life then you should let them know, if they don’t feel the same way then you know it wasn’t meant to be and you can take the time to move on and find someone else.

(oh god, why does it feel like he is letting me down gently, letting me know he has someone else in his life. God I’m so stupid for falling for him)

Blake – you’re right. I just need to work up the courage to tell her

Summer – Well I’m here for you if you need to talk about it, that’s what friends are for right?

Blake – yeah friends, (it’s always going to be just friends. Oh god why did I do this to myself). It’s getting late, I might just head home

Summer – oh ok, if you’re sure.

Blake – I am yeah, thanks for a lovely evening, I really enjoyed myself. I’m gonna go over and say thank you to your parents, I’ll talk to you soon ok (before he leaves he kisses Summer on the forehead)

Summer thinking to herself – that’s it, I’ve lost him to someone else. Typical Summer, never getting the boy I want. Think I’m gonna take myself to bed.

3rd party POV

Adi looks over and see’s Summer and Blake talking, finally! he thinks to himself. He sees Blake get up and kiss Summer on the forehead and walk away looking completely dejected. He then sees Summer make her way upstairs without saying good night to anyone. What the hell just happened?

Adi – Blake what’s going on?

Blake – I tried to tell her how I felt, she told me to go for it with the girl I liked and that she would be here for me as a “Friend”, she completely friend zoned me. Look I’m gonna head home, no point in my mood bringing the party down, I’ll chat to you soon ok

Adi – yeah man, chat to you soon.
Jesus Summer what have you done. Adi makes his way up to Summers room and finds her crying on her bed - Sweetie what’s going on?

Summer – he likes someone else

Adi – How do you know?

Summer – he told me that he likes someone and that he needs the courage to tell her

Adi – ok but did he tell you who it was

Summer – no but I told him that I would support him, isn’t that what a good friend does?

Adi – so you completely friend zoned him before finding out who it is he has feelings for? Are you serious?

Summer – what are you raising your voice at me for? If I was the girl he liked he would have told me but he didn’t so it’s obvious it’s someone else. I’m not going to stand in the way of him being happy

Adi – Jesus Christ the two of ye are as bad as each other

Summer – what are you on about?

Adi – it’s you! You are the girl he has feelings for ok. GOD!

Summer – no I’m not

Adi – Summer listen to me, I am your best friend. I can tell you hand on heart, YOU are the girl that he has feelings for and he thinks you totally friend zoned him. Why do you think he left suddenly?

Summer – shit!

Adi – Yeah

Summer – what do I do?

Adi – I dunno babygirl but you need to figure it out sooner rather than later or you’re going to lose him.

Summer jumps up and leaves the house, she runs to her car and drives to Blakes dorm.

Summer – I don’t know what I’m going to do when I get there but I can’t lose him, I’m gonna take my own advice and if he rejects me then I will take my time and move on from him. If I don’t try, I’ll never know.

As Summer walks up to Blakes dorm door, a red haired girl comes out fixing her clothes with her lipstick smeared all over her face.

Summer – oh god I feel sick, this can’t be happening. No. Think rationally Summer, he only left you 10 – 15 minutes ago, there is no way he could have done this already.

Summer knocks on the door and Blake opens it in just his sweat pants, his hair is all wet and it looks like he just got out of the shower.

Summer – god he must have just washed off whatever he did with her, I can’t do this, I can’t stay here. Summer turns around and starts to walk away

Blake – Summer, what’s wrong?

Summer – nothing, it’s ok

Blake follows Summer, takes a hold of her wrist and turns her around to face him, he see’s tears running down her face

Blake – Sum, speak to me, what’s wrong?

Summer barely speaking through her tears – I thought I could do this but I can’t. I thought I was the girl you wanted but I was wrong. It was wrong of me to come here, I’m sorry. I won’t bother you again. She is really pretty, I’m happy for you but I need some time away from you ok, please.

Blake – what are you on about? What girl?

Summer – don’t lie to me Blake, the red haired girl that just left your room half naked.

Blake – Summer I promise you, I came straight home and got in for a shower, I don’t know who was in the room, please come back with me and I’ll straighten this out.

Summer walks back to the room with Blake.
Blake calls out for his room mate Josh

Blake – Josh?

Josh – yeah man

Blake – did you have someone over tonight?

Josh – yeah man, Trixie was here, she left about 5 minutes ago why?

Blake – ok, can you explain to Summer here who Trixie is?

Josh walking into the room – Damn, you’re the famous Summer, well it’s finally a pleasure to meet you, my man Blake here won’t shut up about you

Blake blushing – now is not the time man, can you just tell her who Trixie is?

Josh – my bad, Trixie is my girlfriend, we’ve been together about 3 years now, why?

Blake turning to Summer – See, she wasn’t here for me, I promise you

Josh – Ah hell no, my girl only has eyes for me, just like Blake only has eyes for you

Blake – UGH! Ok Josh, go away now please

Josh – ok ok.. Summer it was lovely meeting you, look after my boy here ok wink wink

Blake takes Summers hand and leads her into his bedroom - we need to talk...
