Tell me this is a bad idea but c'mon, I missed writing.
Here's a oneshot, enjoy :))
I hated the way the street looked like. Wet, cold and empty. The last time I've been here was 5 years ago and it took me a lot of courge to come back.
Being here reminds me of my life back when I was in a band. It was fun but when the band started to gain fame, everything seemed to be complicated. We had to choose between education and passion, family and fame and a bunch of stuffs we didnt know we would get involved at.
The last night we all got together was last December. December 27 to be exact. My birthday. Jeremy, Taylor, Zac, Josh was there and it was such a great night for me.
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" the boys greeted in chorus as I opened the door for them.
"Thank you guys" I said as we pulled each other for a bearhug.
Tonight, it was Jeremy, Taylor and Zac who offered to celebrate with me. They brought two cakes, three boxes of pizza and drinks. I wasnt really expecting Josh to be around. Since he and Jenna got engaged, he missed every occasions.
Being engaged really sucks. Haha
As we all pulled away from the hug, they all placed the food and drinks on the kitchen counter. I followed them as I closed the door.
Zac started taking the cake out of the box and settling it on the center of the dining table while Jeremy and Taylor took care of the other preparations. I pulled a chair and sat on it and watch them move around my kitchen. I feel very lucky to have this guys. They have never done this to my previous celebrations.
"What?" Zac asked with a worried voice. I shook my head and tuck my bangs behind my ears.
"Nothing..." I started, "you guys are just really the best. I mean - no one had ever prepared anything for me for my birthday" I continued.
Well it's true, ever since I moved to this house - my house - no one ever prepared or surprise me on my birthday. Well not really before Josh and I broke up. He was the only one who took effort to make my birthday one of the best memorable days of my existence. Why does it have to be on Josh always?
They all gathered in front of me, like I was their mom sending out my last words before I die. Okay, just kidding. :)) First, I'm not gonna die and second, because I'm not their mother. :))
"Oh, you thought this was all for you?" Taylor asked. My eyes widened and my eyebrow suddenly raised on their own.
Jeremy and Zac nudges him to his stomack making him arc forward in reaction.
"Oww, you guys. That hurts" Taylor complained in pain. I dont know if the hit was really that painful though it looked like Jeremy and Zac didnt put force on that nudge.
"It wasnt that hard, man" Zac laughed.
"It still hurts" Taylor mocked as he send a hit on Zac's head.
"Ow" Zac complained. Jeremy and I started to laugh
"Enough with the playing guys. The celebrant is starving" Jeremy called out but Taylor and Zac continued hitting each other's head.
"You two better stop or I'll eat both of you" I giggled as I took a plate and scoop a slice of pizza from the box.
With Zac and Taylor around, it feels like watching over two two-year old kids on my house.
After filling our hungry tummy with pizza, it was time to blow my birthday cake. It was a round chocolate flavored cake.
They sang 'Happy Birthday' like little kids on a childrens party. We also have our party hats on our head and 3 balloons Taylor got for me, this is waaaaaaay more fun than my other birthdays back when I was a child.
"You like it?" Jeremy asked as the song ended. I glanced at the cake and nodded my head
"Yep, chocolate cake. My all-time favorite cake" I answered, "Did Kat baked this?" I asked suspiciously.
"Haha, yeah!" he answered "Go on, Kat didnt allow me to taste that" he added.
"Dont forget to make a wish!" Taylor sang
"Make it quick, I'm still hungry" Zac mimicked Taylor's tone. We all laughed. No doubt, Zac is still hungry like what he was whining after eating all the pizza. I bet he never felt stuffed.
I nodded my head. I closed my eyes and wished then blow the candle. They all clapped their hands and shouted 'whooooooo' in chorus.
After taking ourselves a slice of cake, we slumped on the living room and watched a few horror movies. It was past 12 o'clock and the guys were all asleep. They were all lying on the carpet snoring like a ship. I smiled to myself and sneak out of the living room.
I was halfway towards my room when I heard a knock. I stopped and waited for the knock again, sort of confirmation that someone is really knocking behind my front door at 12 o'clock midnight. After a few seconds, I heard another knock.
I headed down and peered over the window. I know him. I definitely know him. I headed for the door and opened it.
We both trailed off as we faced each other.
His eyes was different. It looked sad. He was gripping his keps on his hands - which he does when something is terribly up - but still manages to give me a smile.
"I guess I'm half an hour late...Happy birthday" he greeted. My lips curved into a smile on its own.
"Thanks. Come in" I said as I fully open the door for him.
I lead him to the kitchen. Crap. There was no more pizza! But oh, good thing there were two cakes!
"I'm sorry, your brother ate all the pizza but good thing they brought two boxes of cake" I told him as we enetered the kitchen. He laughed and nodded.
"No, it's fine. I'm-I'm not hungry" he answered with a smile, "I just really came to greet you personally and-" he stopped. I looked straight at him
"What?" I asked
"And I wanna talk to you" he finished.
"Oh. Sure. Just let me get you something to eat" I answered. I totally feel uneasy right now.
I got the cake off the fridge while Josh took a seat. I placed a plate of cake in front of Josh and a cup of soft drinks. He smiled and mouthed 'thank you'
I took a seat accross him. He started to in ulge the cake.
"Hm, this cake tastes different. Where'd you get it?" he asks. My mouth hunged open. He never asked such a thing before. Food for him wasnt a big deal. He'll eat and will never complain and let the food taste the way it is. Do you get me? He never cared about the way it tastes.
"Oh. Kat made it" I answered. He nodded his head and continued eating.
The silence was defeaning, neither of us wanted to speak.
"Josh," I gasped as my heart beats faster and harder on my chest.
"Hm?" He raised his head and bore his eyes into mine
"Are you alright?"
He gave me a smile, a fake one, then gulped down his drinks. He cleared his throat. I thought he was gonna start talking but he just stared again into my eyes. I raised my eyebrows on him and shook my head.
"You gotta stop those weird gestures" I giggled. He grinned and laughed quietly. "So?"
His expression gave me a hint of what he was about to say.
He ggigled nervously.
"I-I" he stuttered and stopped for a while. He burried his face into his palm and shook his head.
"Josh, wha-what happened?"
"I broke up with Jenna" he answered, his face still burried on his hands.
My brain needed time to process what Josh just said. Broke up with Jenna? Arent they engaged? He shouldnt be acting this way! For pete-sake, they're damn engaged!
I breathed heavily. Josh looked up to see my face, placing his thumb and index on my chin and tried to lift my face so he could see my expression. But I refused, I looked away.
"You what? Broke up with her?" I asked. He nodded. "Wow. You got on your knees and asked her to marry you. And now you're here telling me you just broke up with her? BROKE UP. You two were engaged, Josh" i half-shouted.
I admit that I really hate Jenna for manipulating Josh and making him do things he never tried. She glares and almost killed me with her looks and glares. She's a witch, a total wicked manipulative witch! But she doesnt deserve what Josh did. Josh proposed to her, he couldnt just turn his back on her just because of her unreasonable wickedness. I know Josh loves her, he couldve just talked to her. She might listen to him but-
"Josh, have you tried talking to her?" I asked.
"Yeah" he answered,
"No, I mean...have you told her what it feels like to-"
"To be manipulated? Yes. A million times. I thought she was going to change but I dont see it coming" he smirked. Oh, Jenna's a brat, and that's the only thing that's crystal clear to me.
"And I realized something" he continued.
"I still love you"
I know this is short but the 2nd part will be posted after a day or two.
Hope you enjoyed, tell me what you think? :))
