AAR; Time Stands Still For Us: Chapter 7


Anyone think I've been writing too much about Eb and Nick? I feel like I am. But I'm trying to centre this story around them, just in case anyone was wondering. I find it really hard to write about more then one relationship. But oh well. I'll figure something out, especially in the next series.
Sorry if it's confusing.


Ebony's POV

I heard the door bell ring, and put my guitar down, and stopped writing. Ever since I met Nick and Tyson, I have been so inspired to write more. I have finally met some people so alike me in many ways it's just uncountable.
I walked to the door and opened it. My heart skipped a beat. It was the very cute, Nickolas Wheeler.
"Hey," I said, about to continue but was quickly interrupted.
"I know you're probably wondering what I'm doing here," Nick started, reading my mind. "But I just wanted to drop by and give you this. He pulled out a bouquet from behind my back. It was orchids. I couldn't believe my eyes. How did he know? They're my favourite. I spied a cd amidst the beautiful flowers.
"Orchids, I hope you like them." Nick continued.
"They are beautiful. How did you know?" I asked.
"Know what?"
"Orchids are my favourite."
"I didn't. I just thought you would like them."
"Well you sure got that right."
"Umm... Can I come in?"
"Oh right, yeah, sure." I moved to the side to allow Nick to come in. Once he walked in the door, I closed it and felt him brush my hair. I turned around and he held my hand, leaned in and kissed my lips softly. I felt my heart beat faster and smiled back.
"By the way, there is a cd in the flowers. It's a mix of a couple of songs. Hope you like them." Nick added in.
I put the cd into my laptop and we sat down together and listened.
"Wait," I quickly said. "Could you play the songs for me now?"
"Are you sure? It sounds better recorded."
"Yeah, I like it live and it'll be acousitc." (: He laughed back. "Here's a guitar, i was writing just before you came."
"Umm... Okay... I can't help that I was born this way. I can't help that I can't find love. That women just never love me but then you came and made everything alright. You made me feel like a shooting star, without a worry in the world. Lighter than air and words can't describe how great you are. Your eyes make me want to melt with you forever, like we need to make the best of what we have left. And I can't bear the thought of being away from you. And that's why I came today, to sing you this song..."
I listened in awe, I had never heard a song so beautiful. I was captivated. I truly loved Nick, I really did. Words really can't express the way I love him. Once he finished the song, he said, "Sorry if it's lame."
"No way, that was absolutely beautiful. I love it." I replied, feeling beyond as happy as i have ever felt before.
"I also have to make a confession."
"Umm... The song's about you."
"Really? Oh my gosh. I can't believe it. You wrote a song about me? And, I sort of want to tell you something too. Something that words can't express."
"I love you too."
We leaned into eachother and kissed again.

"Who could that be?" I asked.
"I have no idea. Erin?" Nick replied.
"Nup, can't be. She's with Tyson, right?"
"Oh yeah, he picked her up this morning."
"Then who is it?"
"I dont know."
"Let's go and see."
I opened the door and saw tom standing there, with an apologetic and surprised look on his face. He must've realised Nick was my boyfriend because we were holding hands.
"Hey Tom," I said a little confused. "What are you doing here?"
"I wanted to see how you're doing." He replied.
"I'm fine."
"You didn't seem fine a couple hours ago."
"Well, I am now. And I'm busy."
"Okay. Well I see you don't have anymore time for your best friend."
"Best guy friend. And I have a boyfriend now who FYI i do love very deeply. Tom, know your place."
"I see. We were closer but I guess you've lost your heart to some American dude."
"Tom, don't be rude. He's standing right here, which I think you have realised."
"Then aren't you going to introduce us?"
"No thanks, I think I've lost my respect for you now."
"What the hell are you talking about? I come over here to see if you're alright and you're talking to me about losing my respect. You know what? This is all just about your lovely new boyfriend Nick! And I thought something was gonna happen between us and then you meet this dude who is probably going to leave you to go home anyway."
"Actually, you came here to pick a fight. And I don't care if he's gonna go home and leave me, I'll just make the most of what we have. And dont start offending Nick, he never did anything wrong to you. I can't fight with you, our friendship is too strong. Can't you just forget your jealous ways and be happy for me? I've finally found someone I really love. Please think of this from my point of view. Now, please leave peacefully."
"Fine, whatever." He turned around and left and I closed the door. I turned around, slid down and sat against the door. I started to sob and Nick came down with me. He started rubbing my back, and holding me against his chest. Nick kept telling me, "It's gonna be okay. It will be fine," But I'm not sure if it really will be. I felt like my chest was burning, like I was drowning. The only thing keeping me holding my breath was Nick. What is going to happen to me an tom? I have no idea. But I really really hope I didnt just destroy our friendship. Please please no.
