Note:© Valerie 'The Girl Who Saw Through Jem'

Summary: 

She was Ellis. He was Jem. She was a good girl. He was a bad boy. She was polite. He was rude. She was kind. He was impulsive. She believed in God. He was an atheist. She played the piano. He smoked. She was in love. But he wasn't. One day they were brought together through their perceptions of hate, they shared a kiss, but before that they shared many arguments, for matters of the heart require time because love can take a decade and last for as long as a moment but it's still worth it.

 Warning: contains a bad boy who for once can actually think in a philosophical manner, is a prankster at heart thus inducing heartfelt laughter and make more than one people fall in love with him. Also, this isn't a happy story so don't think it gets a happy ending. This isn't a love story. It's a story about losing love.

previously called Losing Ellis, mostly because i changed my mind more than a normal white girl changes her clothes while shopping at Forever 21. sorry, that was racist. 

I hope you enjoy. :)
