Chapter 40

MARIA’S POV:

“I’m sorry, but I really don’t want you hanging around him or talking to him.” Jason said. “It’s either me or him, choose.” he stated looking at me.

“You’re really gonna make me choose between you two?” I asked looking at him with a sad expression displayed on my face.

Jason didn’t say anything, all he did was crossed his arms and looked at me with a serious expression.

I guess that’s a yes… I have to choose between my boyfriend and my best friend.

“I choose…” I paused looking down at the ground thinking. “I choose Hunter.” I finished now looking up at Jason.

He just looked away and sighed before speaking, “Well, I guess we’re done then.” he spoke looking at me before walking away.

I just stood there, no emotion now displayed on my face. Honestly, it took me a lot of strength not to break down and cry right there. But, I didn’t have the strength to hold it back. So before I knew it, my feet moved on it’s own and started running to the bathroom out of it’s own will.

I know, you guys probably think it’s stupid to be crying over a guy like this. But, I really liked him. Ever since I met him, I liked him. I’m very sorry if I seem so weak and pathetic to you guys.

HUNTER’S POV:

Today was Monday, and like I said; the next time I see Rose I’m gonna ask her to be my girlfriend. I think it’s time.

“Boo!” Rose said running up behind me and slightly pushing me as I laughed.

“Rose, hey.” I replied followed by a soft chuckle.

“What’s up?” she asked with a small smile.

“Nothing really, though.. I wanna ask you something.” I replied awkwardly rubbing the back of my neck while looking away.

“Uh huh.. what is it you wanna ask me?” she asked as I looked back at her, except my eyes accidentally met hers.

“I was gonna ask if…” I paused, still debating whether or not I should ask her out,

I thought I already decided this, but now that she’s standing right in front of me I’m not sure if this is even what I want still.

“I was gonna ask if you did the homework for government class.” I replied laughing a bit as she did also.

“I knew you weren’t really going to ask,” Rose said still chuckling a bit.

“Ask what?” I asked as she took out her phone and showed me text messages from Maria.

It read, “Hunter’s gonna ask you out the next time he sees you! If you do date him, please take care and treat him well as he will do the same for you. He’s like a best friend to me, and I don’t want him to get hurt. And I know this is odd of me to say all of this, but please just make my best friend happy! >.<”

After the text message Maria sent to Rose, I couldn’t help but laugh about it. She spoiled the surprise, but I was fine with it.

“You don’t really like me. You like her.” Rose stated with a small smile. “And I can see why,” she added chuckling.

“I don’t like her, I’m.. in love with her.” I replied proudly. “I’ve been, for awhile now. But, what gave me away?” I asked chuckling.

“Pier 39, when she was taking pictures with the heart,” she replied. “The way you looked at her. Anyone besides her would be able to see the feelings you have for her. The way you look at her.” Rose added, the smile still remaining.

“Well then, I guess I made it that obvious.” I replied chuckling awkwardly looking away. “But, she doesn’t know my feelings towards her— not yet at least.” I added.

“What’s stopping you from letting her know?” Rose asked, her arms now crossed as she raised an eyebrow at me.

“That answer should be obvious, she has a boyfriend.” I replied.

“What does that Jason guy have anything to do with how you feel towards Maria?” she asked.

“She has a boyfriend. If I tell her how I feel, I’m pretty sure it’s gonna get awkward between the two of us, even when we hangout.” I replied.

“But, don’t you ever look at her and feel like you want to do nothing else besides tell her how you feel, and how much she means to you?” Rose asked.

“Yes, but what can I do? I don’t want anything to be awkward between us.” I replied. “Maria’s like a best friend to me, and.. I don’t know what would happen if I were to ever lose a friendship like that.” I added sighing.

“Honestly, it’s up to you. If you wanna stay stuck in the friend zone, then so be it.” Rose replied. “But you’re never gonna know what’s gonna happen if you never try.” she added.


After that long talk with Rose, I’ve come to a realization that she was right. I’ll never know unless I try. But, will letting my feelings out there for her be worth ruining the perfect friendship we have right now?

I was walking down the hall, when I passed the girl’s the bathroom I heard.. Quinn’s voice consoling someone?

“What happened? Are you okay?” I heard her ask. No reply.

“Come on, I’ll take you home.” she said, and when I heard that, I couldn’t help but look back to see who it was Quinn was consoling.

The next thing I knew, I see her exiting the bathroom with… Maria? Her hair was covering her face. Right when I saw her, I made a full on U-turn and caught up with the two.

“Quinn, what happened to Mar—” she cut me off.

“Not now Hunter, I need to take her home.” she replied.

“I’ll go with you guys.” I replied still following.

“Hunter, just go to class. Let me take care of her and figure out what’s going on.” she replied. “She’s crying, and no girl wants anyone to see her cry.” she added.

When Quinn told me to go to class, I didn’t go to class nor followed them. Even if school was still going on, I went straight to my car and headed to the store. Why? So I could go buy her ice cream and also a movie.

If she’s upset about something, why not try to cheer her up with some ice cream and a romcom movie? Though, I’m hoping by the time I arrive there that Quinn is gone. Because she might not let me anywhere near her in the state that she is currently in.
