Chapter 9 What should I say?
“Eric what are you doing with her?” asked Alyssa.
“Nothing,” then he slowly backed away from me.
“You,” she said to me. Then I looked at her, “You stay away from him cause he’s mine. He is my prince, you already have Laurence so Eric is mine.” Then they left. Even if I didn’t like Alyssa that much, I wanted to thank her since I didn’t know what to say to him. The next time we meet I know that he’s going to ask me again. What should I say? I spent an entire hour in my room, thinking about what I should say the next time we meet.
Then I heard footsteps, then I saw a letter slip under the door. I picked it up and opened the door, I saw no one. That’s impossible, I mean that person couldn’t have gone away that fast. I looked at the letter and saw that it was from Eric and it was addressed to me, I smiled. I looked again back and forth but I didn’t see Eric anywhere so I closed the door and I opened the letter and it said,
Heart, as I’ve said. I’m tired of ignoring each other, I want to be friends again so can we? I will find a way so that we can talk. So I will be the one worrying about that.
Ok, now what? What should I say? I just laid down on my bed and looked at the ceiling and practiced what I should say.
“Eric, I’m not yet sure. I still need to get used seeing you cause whenever I see you, I don’t remember the good memories but the bad ones. I want things to be the way they were before, but I still need to heal the deep wound that you gave me.” Since I had no one to talk to, cause Rose is with Andrew and Megan could be with Jaxon, I practiced that dialogue, I even wrote on a piece of parchment. I practiced and practiced until I memorized it that I wouldn’t ***** up when the real thing happens. Then the door opened and I saw Megan who had a big smile on her face. “Well somebody had a good time,” I said.
“Yeah, Jaxon just asked me to go to another date,” then she squealed. I was surprised, I never saw her squeal before and I never thought I’d hear her squeal. Well everybody has a girly side. Then I heard a knock, I opened the door and I saw Laurence. “So, I’m free. Want to continue our lessons? Unless you’re not free, it’s your choice.”
“I’m free too. Let’s go,” so we went outside for our daily lessons.
The first day was the hardest since I was new to this and a lot of people were staring at me and I always feel uncomfortable when they do, cause I hate being embarrassed. But Laurence is actually a good teacher, I got to know the basics and now even if we’re still reviewing them, he’s already teaching me how to be in combat. The sword that I used was Mason’s, he gladly let me borrow his sword. Now I need to know how to position the feet and the arms.
“Ok it’s like dancing, you just need to anticipate which move you need to do next.” So we did an entire 2 hours lesson, even if I was already sweating, I still wanted to learn. The lesson ended and the following weeks were just like this and Eric hasn’t asked me again, yet. Maybe Alyssa is keeping him from me and for that I’m glad but whenever I see them together, I think I’m getting jealous. But I just hold Laurence’s hand and I’m complete.
Then one day in Surviving Fairy Tales, Yuba “unlocked” our fingers and made us light them up. “Gather all your feelings, only when you feel a lot then you can do magic.” I just remembered all the sad times I had and my finger lit up and it was red. It’s color was the dark red, like the red of blood. Since my finger was the first that lit up, I saw a blazing 1 on my head then Yuba went to me and said, “Good, you now need to find your talent.”
“But how will I do it that? How will I know?”
“You’ll know. It could come naturally.”
“You may go now,” he said. I was confused.
“Yes, you already lit up your finger. You have nothing to do now, so you may go.”
“Ok,” then I left. I went to my room and started to do my assignments. While I was doing my assignments, I heard a knock. I wondered who it was since Yuba’s class was not yet over, it could be a teacher, fairy, a nymph. I opened the door and I saw that it was Eric.
“Eric, hi,” oh man he’s going to ask me that question again. “Come inside.” He went in and I said, “You can sit anywhere you want,” so he sat on the left side of my bed and I sat on the right. There was an awkward silence between us, I was just smiling and looking at the room, careful not to meet his stare and he was doing the same. Then he faced me and said, “Heart, I don’t want to waste any more time. So I’m going to ask you again.” He took a deep breath and asked, “Can we be friends again?”
“Eric,” I took a deep breath, just say the conversation we’ve been practicing, I thought to myself. “I want to be friends with you,” WHAT! WHAT! That wasn’t what we practiced.
“YES!” Eric shouted, jumped and hugged me. “Thank you, thank you. Now everything is normal,” he said while hugging me. Oh man what did I just say, I practiced and practiced this conversation. What happened?
“Wait,” I said pushing him a little bit, “how did you get out of Yuba’s class early?”
“Oh. When you were already dismissed, after a few minutes, I also got to light up my finger. But only for a few seconds. Then I saw a scorching 2 on my head and Yuba also dismissed me.”
“What was the color of you finger?”
“What kind of orange? Cause mine is red, it’s the red that is the color of blood.”
“Light orange. Sort of like yellow and orange together.”
“I don’t understand.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll show you sometime.”
“Ok,” then we heard the birds sing, “Oh time for you to go. Don’t want Alyssa to get mad.”
“Right, bye,” then he left. I waited until his footsteps were far away, then I acted crazy in the room. “Why did I say that? What did I do wrong?,” I took a deep breath and calmed myself down. “Ok Heart, just retrace your steps. Ok. So I was doing my assignments then he came in. Awkward silence then he asked. Why did I say yes?” I replayed and replayed in my mind what went wrong. After a few minutes, I knew. “My feelings took over.” I laughed, “All this time I wanted to be friends again, my mind was thinking of the bad times while my feelings.” I collapsed on my bed and laughed. Then Megan and Rose came in and saw me laughing, “Heart,” Megan said while slowly coming near me. “Why are you laughing? she asked.
“Did you know that Eric came here and asked me to be friends?” I talked like I was crazy (Writer,me,: Or in modern world, she talked like she was high).
“What happened?” Rose asked.
“Well, do you guys remember the dialogue that I kept practicing everyday, even with you guys?”
“Yes, stop with the riddles. Tell us what happened.” Megan demanded while rolling her eyes.
“Well, I ******* up,” then I laughed like crazy, “I said that I wanted to be friends. I let my feelings control me and LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED.” I said laughing so hard now.
That’s chapter 9, I hope that you enjoyed it. Thanks to @megannnyap, @peppy, @gracelynnofmadinvail and @athene for letting me use their characters. I need a few ideas for chapter 10. I already have the entire story in my head but I can’t go to that part now, so I need a few ideas.
Umm, maybe next chapter you can have Heart (you) telling Megan and Rose what happened, and then Heart trying to get through the school day knowing that she was now officially friends with Eric again, then finding herself asking some girls for advice. Also, while I’m saying this, PLEASE MAKE THOSE GIRLS ME (Teresa of Starville) AND THE GIRL BEFORE ME THOSE GIRLS!!!
