Cara: Sleepy AnnaMature

I headed to the library, annoyed that there had been no apology. I wasn't sure who was supposed to apologise though. I mean, she had seriously been neglecting our friendship, but I had allowed that a little, in favour of dancing. And Amy.

As I perused the shelves I spotted a girl asleep on her chair. It was Anna. I chuckled then glanced at my watch. If she'd been here the whole time she'd have missed her lecture. I decided to wake her, but allowed myself a little laugh before doing so, aware that if she was still in a mood with me that it wouldn't be taken too well.

I shook her and she awoke, swearing as she noticed the time. Yep, she'd missed her lecture.

"You know Anna, I think you picked the wrong subject to study at uni. It seems to put you to sleep." I chuckled and she smiled, but then seemed to remember that we weren't talking.

"I thought we'd fallen out?"

"Well yeah. We have." I mumbled, putting my books down and leaning on her desk. "But you know, I don't quite know what I'm supposed to be apologising for, apart from being jealous of the amount of time you spend with Matt, which by the way is natural for a best friend."

"Well what am I supposed to apologise for?"

"How about putting him first? Before your best friend? I've felt really alone ever since you and him started being really serious. All you do is hang out with him and make out. And even when I'm there, you're wrapped in his arms, kissing him, he's kissing you. You get distracted by him half way through me talking..."

"...Alright! I get it. And yeah I suppose it has been a bit like that, but I've never felt this way about anyone. He's makes me all warm inside..."

"Yeah I know. I've seen the look on your face."

"Well, that's why I spend so much time with him. To feel like that. And he makes me happy. I don't even realise I'm hurting you. I wish you'd told me, instead of letting it get to the point where we fell out."

"Maybe I should have done. But I didn't want you to think that it was just because I didn't like Matt."

"You don't like him?"



"I don't know. I just don't."

"Oh. Well maybe if you got to know him...?"

"Maybe." I'd just spotted Amy through the isles, and she was smiling at me, gesturing discreetly to follow her. "Look Anna, I've got to go, but I'm glad we talked this out." I gave her a quick hug before she could say anything and hurried down the isle. Amy walked ahead of me, and I followed, pretending to be looking for a book. I watched her go through the door that led to the stairs, and then I followed. She was leaning against them and the place was deserted, because most people used the front stairs, or the lifts.

"Hey." She said.

"Hey" I grinned.

"So... I was wondering... if you'd like to have dinner with me?"

I blushed and nodded, smiling.

"I'd love that."

"Good. Come to where my house is and I'll meet you. 7?"

"Yeah." I said a little weakly, excited.

"Great." She then passed me and went back in the library. I breathed out heavily and laughed. Wow. She was so sexy. She made my knees and voice weak.

I headed down the stairs and out of the library, excited at the prospect of the night. I completely forgot about doing any work.

The End
