Happy Reading :)
“Long time no see friend.”
Adam was fuming and his fists were clutched tightly after he heard those words. It felt like he would beat him at any moment now.
“You should go Adam,” I said politely. I did not want to see my best friend fighting with some guy that too on his first day of school.
“I can talk to Mr. Bradley if you want to Addie.”
“You should go for your practice. I can handle this myself.”
“Okay. But if anything happens, just give me a call,” he said while kissing me on my cheeks and then joined his boys for the football practice.
I turned towards Eric and said, “Hey. I am Adaline Williams, the President of this school. I am glad that you choose Elite as your school and I would be pleased to show you around the campus for today.” He chuckled listening to my words. “You don’t have to be so formal with me,” he said with a small smile on his face.
“Just doing my job,” I replied.
“Okay listen up Williams! I know our first meet up was fucked up and when you kissed me you didn’t expect to meet me again but all that’s happening now. So please don’t ignore me. I am not that bad you know.”
Why did he have to talk about the kiss? Gosh. He might be thinking I am a lets-have-one-night-stand-kind of girl.
“See that day was crazy. And I didn’t mean anything from that kiss, it was ju-”
“Just a dare right?” He asked with a big smile plastered on his face.
“How do you know that?”
“It was damn obvious. When you came and kissed me I thought you were one of those clingy kinds of girls who just wanted to have sex at New year’s but later when you went back to your group and all of them were laughing looking at us, I understood it was a stupid dare game.”
“Didn’t know you were that smart Thompson,” I commented.
A smile spread across his face and believe me he looked damn cute. I certainly can stare at his smiling face all day long and not get bored.
“So can we start by being friends?” He asked. I smiled listening to his question, he sounded so sincere at that moment.
“I would love that.”
“Can I get your number then?”
“I am afraid Mr. Thompson but I am not that easy girl,” I laughed.
He joined me too and replied, “I don’t like easy girl anyways.”
After our little conversation, we both started walking towards the canteen area. I spotted Racheal there and seeing me with Eric made her very happy because she came running towards me and hugged me tightly, slowly in my ears, she whispered ′Let me hang out with him alone please.′
I grinned at her words. After breaking from my hug with Racheal I turned towards Eric and said, “I have some work to do so I won’t be able to join you. Sorry. But I guess Racheal can be your guide for today. Right, Racheal?”
In a very relaxed manner, she replied, “Okay I don’t mind.”
Eric didn’t question me at all and went ahead with Racheal. This girl can be so demanding at times.
It was seven in the evening and I was bored to death. I had a considerable amount of homework to do but I didn’t feel like doing it. I called Racheal to ask whether she would hang out with me but she said she couldn’t because she had some plans with some guy. Racheal’s been with so many guys that I can’t keep a count anymore. Sometimes I fell bad for Ethan, that poor guy likes her so much but she hardly notices that. She just thinks of him as his good friend and nothing else.
Suddenly an idea struck me. I changed my clothes, grabbing the car keys I directly went to Adam’s house. He would be free right now and I could always spend time with him by watching some movies or just talking about random stuff.
I knocked at his door but no one opened it. I stood there for five minutes and then realized that Adam’s parents and my parents have gone out for a special meeting with someone. So I grabbed the spare keys which were always kept under the vase and opened the door.
The house was pitch dark. Wasn’t Adam supposed to be home by now? I took a few steps and then switched on the lights. The house was indeed empty. It was seven-thirty and Adam wasn’t home yet. I just decided to wait for him and started watching Pretty Little Liars. It’s my all-time favorite show. Spencer and Toby are definitely the cutest couple ever.
“Can I get some food please? I am hungry mum.” I heard Adam say while he stood at the front door.
I ran towards him and hugged him tightly. I knew he was surprised to see me but he returned my kind gesture by hugging me back.
“What are you doing here?” He asked while searching for some food in the kitchen.
“There’s nothing. I already checked.”
“Where is mum? I am hungry.” He said and kept one hand on his stomach. I giggled seeing his condition.
“Don’t worry my son. When I am here, you need not fear.”
Adam started laughing after listening to that. He took out some egg from the fridge but I stopped him midway.
“I have already ordered food for us. It’s your favourite - Chinese,” I said
“Is today some special occasion? Why are you being so nice to me?” He asked while keeping the eggs back inside the fridge.
“Remember New Year’s Eve?”
“The time when I asked you for a pause and you agreed.”
“Yes, I remember Addie.”
“So this is me asking for forgiveness by treating you with Chinese food and watching a movie with you,” I said and gave him a big smile.
“Wait! When did I agree to watch a movie with you?”
“Adam. You cannot do that to me.”
“Of course I can.”
“Adam, please. Just one movie.”
“No Addie. I don’t want to watch some stupid romantic movie with you. Those movies are shit.”
“Adam peleaseeeeeee. Just one movie. I swear I will go home after that,” I pleaded with puppy eyes.
“Okay. Fine. One condition but.”
“I will eat all the food. You don’t get to eat anything.”
“What? Are you kidding me? I waited for you the whole while so that we could have that together. You can’t be so mean Adam.”
“Fine then let’s not watch that movie,” He said very calmly.
God! He is so mean.
“Okay. You can eat all of it,” I said and went to start the movie. Adam grinned like a small baby and then ate everything in a few minutes.
Wow. He was too hungry.
“Is it A Walk To Remember Addie?” Adam asked while cleaning the table and picking up the bits of food that fell while he was eating.
“Yes, it is,” I replied with a big smile on my face.
“How many times are we going to watch that movie, Addie? This must be the five hundredth time,” He replied with an annoyed look.
“It’s just so amazing. It’s my favourite movie, Adam.”
“Yeah. I know,” he said and sat on the sofa. I went and sat next to him. A few minutes later the movie started and we both kept quiet.
“Why did you come so late today?” I asked between the movie.
“I thought you didn’t like talking while the movie is going on.”
“Answer me Adam,” I replied plainly. He can be so irritating at times.
“Nothing. I was hanging out with a friend?”
“Why are you asking so many questions? Can’t we just watch the movie?”
“I thought you hated this movie.”
“Yes, I do.”
“So answer me then. Which friend?”
I know I sound like some possessive girlfriend. But lately, Adam’s been so secretive like we hardly talk about our personal lives.
“Addie. Drop it, will you?”
He looked very angry by now. So I just let it pass. I did not want to spoil our movie night with us fighting again.
The room went quiet again and the only voices that could be heard were of Jamie and Landon. They were going on their first date.
I turned to look at Adam and saw him keenly looking at the television. I poked him once and asked, “Can we cuddle please?”
He laughed and asked, “Why do girls like cuddling so much?”
“I don’t know. It’s just something we like.”
Adam came closer to me and after a few minutes, we both were lying on the sofa spooning each other.
“I hate that she dies in the end.”
I was appalled to hear that because as far as I knew, he hated this movie and watched it only for my sake.
“And why do you hate that?” I asked.
He was quite for some time and then replied, “I mean they love each other so much but then she leaves him and goes...It’s just so...”
“Yeah. Like one moment everything was going fine and then suddenly he gets to know about her disease. It must be so painful for him.”
I laughed when I heard him say that.
“Are you making fun of my emotions Addie?” he asked while tightening his grip on my waist.
“It’s just so funny Adam. You sound like a small kid who is trying to share his feelings about his cat just dying,” I said and started laughing hysterically.
He then loosened his grip around my waist and DUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHH!
I fell straight to the ground. This time it was his turn to laugh at me.
“Did you seriously do that?” I asked furiously while trying to get up. My face had turned red by now.
“Aww. Are you going to kill me babes?” He said with a smirk.
Now it was too much for me to handle so I directly jumped on him. He tried to stop me but I was too mad now and no one could stop me. I bit him on his ear and he screamed with pain.
“You are such a dog Addie,” he said, still trying to stop me from attacking him.
I then bit him on his hand and finally let go because I was too tired and besides my revenge was complete. I stayed on top of him for some more while, since it felt so comforting. It’s like his chest was the perfect bed for me. He somehow guessed that I liked this position so he did not make any attempts of moving me. He just slipped his hands on my waist and lightly kissed me on my forehead. I wanted to say ‘I love you’ to him before sleeping, the words that we always said to each other but I couldn’t, I was too tired to even open my mouth and talk.
My eyes were slowly starting to close, but before going to a deep sleep I heard Adam say those words instead.
I hope you enjoyed it.
Love you all <3
