Chapter 20

“Adam you can’t tell about this to anyone.”

“Ohh I’m sorry Addie but I need to tell Ethan this.”

“No you don’t.”

“I do.” He said while grabbing the freshly baked pancakes that Mom made for me.

“I’ll kill you if you do Adam.”

“Well, go ahead. But I won’t hide anything from my buddy.”

“YOU CAN’T TELL HIM!” I said in an angry tone and took away the pancake from his hands.

“Give me my pancake back!”

“Not until you promise that you won’t tell anyone about this.”

“Give it back to me Addie.”

“First promise me.”

“Why are you so stubborn?”

“Why are you so annoying?”

“Okay fine. I won’t tell him anything.”

“That’s like my boy. You can eat these pancakes now.”

“He will find out about this someday you know.”

“We will see when that day comes but for now you need to keep your mouth shut.”

“Okay. I will. But you can’t deny the fact that Felicia and Ethan will make a cute couple.” He said with a big smile.

“Honestly even I feel the same.”

“But Ethan’s rooting for a girl who is never going to understand his feelings.”

“Let’s not even go there Adam. I’m tired of Racheal’s dumbness. I don’t know when that girl will understand this.”

“Never. Racheal is too busy finding love outside.”

“If only she was a little more observant towards Ethan’s feelings.” I said and sighed.

“Oh my God! Stop talking like two old people you both.” Dad said while entering the hall room with a newspaper in his hand as usual.

“Where you eavesdropping our conversation dad?” I asked

“I wasn’t. You guys were too loud to not be heard.”

“Dad! You need to stop eavesdropping our conversation everytime.”

“Sweetheart I was just curious okay? I wanted to know why you two were fighting so much.”

“We were just talking about Ethan.” Adam said

“Why doesn’t Ethan tell Racheal directly what he feels?” Dad asked

At this moment I literally felt like laughing because even dad is asking us the same thing which we question eachother everytime. But the truth is that only Ethan has the answer to this question. Only he knows why he’s hiding his feelings since such a long time.

“Let’s go Addie. We are getting late for school.” Adam said while picking up my bag and making his way towards the door.

“Yeah let’s go. Bye dad.” I said and kissed him on his cheeks.

“Bye George.” Adam said while closing the door.

“Bye son.”

The whole day was pretty boring at school except the free English lecture that we got. Adam was busy practising for his football match so I ended up spending time with Eric again. We decided to go the music room and practise together. Eric promised me that he would teach me how to play the keyboard so I was pretty excited about that.

“I think I’m a better singer than you Williams.” Eric said with a smirk on his face.

“You wish Thompson.”

“There’s no doubt that I’m better Adaline. But don’t worry, I’ll teach you how to be a great artist like me.”

“Shut up and just teach me how to play this.” I said while hitting him on his arm. He made a face like he was hurt a lot but then started smiling like an idiot.

“Okay so let’s start from the basic’s, shall we?”

“As you say Sir.”

“Mum I’m home. Can you please get me some food?” I said while taking a seat in front of the television.

“Well Mellisa is out but here’s some chips if you need.” Sienna said while coming out of the kitchen.

“Heyy! I didn’t know you were home.” I said awkwardly because I actually didn’t expect her to be here.

“Me and Alex planned to watch a movie together and turns out there’s no coke so he went out to buy some.” She said and smiled.

“Wow. That’s great. When will I get to hangout with you both?”

“Join us for the movie.”

“No I don’t want to disturb you both.” I said with an evil smile.

“Adaline, just stop your imagination okay? We are watching an action movie so nothing like that is going to happen.”

“What’s not going to happen?” Alex asked while entering the house with a bottle of coke in his hand.

“Nothing. We were just pulling eachother’s leg.” I
Said and hugged Alex.

“I got cupcakes for you.” Alex said to me and instantly my face lit with a big smile.

“That’s why you are the best brother ever.” I said and kissed him on his cheeks.

“Stop sugar coating me now.”

“I was just stating the fact.”

Alex laughed hearing my reply and pinched my nose. Before I could react to this I heard the click of the camera. We both turned to see that Sienna had taken a picture of us fighting and teasing eachother.

“I’m sorry you guys are just so cute, I couldn’t stop myself.”

“Between the two of us I’m the cute one.” I said and stuck my tongue out looking at Alex.

“Yeah yeah stop complimenting yourself everytime.” Alex said and walked towards Sienna to see the picture.

“It actually came good. I love this.” Alex said

“Me too.” Sienna and I said in unison.

“You guys have fun now, I’ll join you later.” I said

“Let’s watch the movie together Adaline.” Alex said

“I’m going to Adam’s place, I’ll see you both later.”

“Okay. Have fun.” Sienna said

I was walking towards Adam’s house which was a fifteen minutes walk from mine and stopped at the grocery store to get some stuffs when I bumped into Ethan.

“Thank God I met you. I was just about to come to your place.” Ethan said while giving me a hug.

“Is everything okay? Why do you look so tensed?” I asked

“Well...I had to tell you... That..umm..you know tha-”

“Oh my god Ethan just spit it fast.”

“Okay so you remember the girl I met at the masquerade ball?”

“Yes I do remember. The mysterious girl you met that night.”

“So last night I remembered something and I think I know who it is.”

“Wait! What?”

“Just hear me out first okay?”

“Okay go ahead.”

“Since a long time I was trying to remember who she was but I just couldn’t because I was so drunk that night but yesterday I got a few glimpse of that night. I don’t know her name or anything but she kept telling me that I need to move on from Racheal and that she loves me a lot.”

“Hmm okayy..”

“Adaline I just have this feeling that if I try to remember more I can find her and I know Adam won’t believe me so I came to you. You have to trust me. I think that girl knows me really well else how could she know about me crushing on Racheal?”

“Everyone knows about you crushing on Racheal except that stupid girl.”

“But we need to find that girl Adaline. I really need to know who she is. I need your help.”

“I want to help you but how will we find her?”

“There’s one thing that she told me that night.”

“What?”

“Her secret place.”

“I don’t understand anything Ethan.”

“Whenever she needs some time on her own to think about stuff she goes to this place.”

“Which place?”

“Our school’s rooftop.”

“But that’s off limit Ethan. No student can enter there.”

“Well, she does. So maybe I can find here there.”

I wasn’t sure whether what Ethan was telling was right or wrong and I wasn’t even sure whether I believed him or not but a small part of me really wanted to give this a shot. A part of me knew how important it is for Ethan to find his mystery girl.

So without wasting much time I asked him, “What’s the plan?” and in an instant his face lit up with a very big smile.
