“Wake up Adaline, it’s time to go to school,” said Alex and started pulling my comfortable blanket towards himself. Alex knows I can’t sleep without my blanket so this is the best trick to wake me up in the morning - just pull the blanket away from me so that I’ll get annoyed and immediately get up from my sleep to yell at that person.
“Alexxxx. Let me sleep.” I said in an angry tone and tried to get my blanket back.
“You need to get up my little sister. Your boyfriend is waiting for you downstairs,” he said and chuckled.
“Wait what? My boyfriend? How did you find out? Adam told you?”
“No.. I mean yes he told us this morning but I already got to know about this last night.”
“Who told you?” I inquired.
“Ad you are dating Adam Carter. He’s the heartthrob of every single girl in this town. Why do you think I’ll not find out about the sweet proposal he made to you yesterday during his big win! That thing is all over social media.”
“Someone posted about all this?” I asked. I know all this was hard to believe for me but I shouldn’t be surprised, this was bound to happen.
“Yes. I saw the entire proposal video. My sister is a lucky girl, that was really sweet of Adam to confess his love in front of the entire school,” Alex said in a very happy tone. I always knew he wanted both of us to end up together but I never knew he would be so damn happy about it.
He is my brother. Isn’t he supposed to act a bit possessive and question me about my boyfriend?
“You seem to be more excited about this relationship than I am, ” I said and gave him a hug.
“Ofcourse I am. Adam is the best guy for you. He loves you like crazy. I’m glad he finally got the balls to confess to you,” he said and gave me a tighter hug.
“How are you so sure that he’s the best guy for me?”
“That’s cause I have seen you both literally grow up together. He has always loved you Ad. Give him some time and you’ll find out how crazy that guy is about you.”
“Wow okay. I shall wait to find this out,” I said and started walking towards my washroom to get ready for the day.
“Come down fast! Mum has made your favourite cookies today,” Alex said while closing the door to my room and heading downstairs.
Alex knows about us now. This means mum and dad know about it too. So do Natalie and Samuel. The next family dinner is going to be awkward I guess. Why do things feel a little weird to me? Nothing has changed right? Adam is still my bestfriend. Also my boyfriend now. It feels weird calling him my boyfriend. I’m still not used to this thing. I think I’ll take some more time to get used to the fact that I finally have a boyfriend now.
All my thoughts are cut by the sudden ringing of my phone. I got out of my washroom to pick it up, the caller ID flashed with the name of Felicia.
“Hey Fel. What’s up?”
“I think I’m going to confess to Ethan today,” Felicia said in a very nervous tone.
“Is everything alright? Why do you sound like this?”
“Last night after you guys left, Ethan told me he would drop me home. But then.. ”
“But then what?”
“Racheal said she wanted some alone time with Ethan and asked me to leave. I didn’t really like the idea of leaving the two of them together you know.”
“See I like Racheal okay. I have no problem with our friendship but I just don’t like the idea of Ethan spending time with Raechel alone because I know what he feels for her so that thing just scares me. I don’t want to lose him,” Felicia said in a very desperate tone. I could sense the fact that she doesn’t want to share Ethan with anyone.
“Then go say the truth. Tell him you were the girl he met during the masquerade ball. Let him know everything and then he can decide what he wants.”
“You sure about this Adaline?”
“I’m hundred percent sure. Now go. Let me get ready. I’ll see you at school,” I said and hung up the call.
The moment I turned around I saw Adam comfortably sitting on my bed with a huge smile on his face.“That was some great advice you gave to Felicia.”
“When did you come in?” I asked and sat right next to him.
“When my girl was busy giving relationship advices to her friend,” he said and pulled me closer to him.
My girl! That sounds so corny but I like it.
“Do you think I gave the right advice?” I asked to know his opinion on this topic.
“I honestly don’t know Addie, ” he sighed.
“I don’t know what’s going inside Ethan’s head lately. Let him decide what he wants - Racheal or Felicia.”
“I hope he chooses Fel. She really likes him.”
“But he’s been crushing on Racheal since so long... ”
“Racheal doesn’t have the slightest idea about Ethan crushing on her.”
“Well things can change if she finds out about it.” He said and I suddenly realised that his point did make sense. Racheal keeps changing guys every month because they never treat her the right way but Ethan isn’t like one of those guys. If she finds out that Ethan is crushing on her, she could think about giving it a try, after all they have been friends for so long. No one understands Racheal the way Ethan does. This realisation suddenly scared me. Did I gave Fel the right advice? Should I tell her to not go ahead with her plan?
“Addie I think you should stop overthinking about all this. Felicia will do what she feels is right. Let’s stop worrying about them.” Adam said and gave me a kiss on my cheeks.
“But what if Fel-”
“Addie stop please. I don’t want to talk about them right now. They are adults, they’ll figure it out. Can we talk about us now please?” He said while making a cute puppy face.
I smiled and gave him a small kiss.“What about us?”
Before Adam could give me a reply, the door banged open, and Alex came in exasperated. “You guys need to stop this lovey-dovey thing and get ready for school.”
Oh shit! School. We totally forgot about that.
Adam got up from the bed and rushed outside.“I’ll wait for you in the car Addie. Come fast!”
I started picking my things up in a hurry and then made my way downstairs.
“Mom, I’m getting late. I’ll eat those cookies in the evening.” I said while giving her a hug.
“Don’t forget that we have a party in the evening.”
“You’ll find out. Come home early. I have already invited all your friends.”
“Okay. I’ll see you in the evening.”
“Bye sweetheart. Have a lovely day at school.” she said and gave me a flying kiss.
Any guesses what’s the reason behind the party? ;)
