Love doesn't work like that

I stood outside in my bedroom, gazing out of my wall window. (a window the size of a wall from floor to ceiling)

This is stupid...this is so stupid. I want to be with Jerry but he's about to ruin everything. Our whole entire friendship will be ruined by three words. I didn't even want to say them.

It's not that I didn't like him. I just didn't want him to go anywhere. I needed him so much. He was my best friend. Now he just comes out that he likes me and expects me to fall in love with him with the snap of a finger.

Love doesn't work like that.

Then the phone started ringing, making me jump in shock. I put my hand on the steamed window, looking out at the pouring rain then turned and walked up to the phone. I don't have caller I.D. It could be Jerry. What would I say?

Hesitating, I picked up the phone.

"Hello?" I whispered.

"Ally? It's Nick." a voice said and I breathed a sigh of relief.

"Oh, hey Nick." I replied.

"Do you want to go out shopping with Julianna and me tomorrow?" he asked then spoke just before I was about to reply, "Oh and Jerry." I sighed.

"Yes, of course. Look I've got to go, call me back in an hour. Bye." With that I quickly hung up. I had no-where to go, no-one to see, but I couldn't speak. I had too much on my mind.

I thought about what I said at the theater, re-winding it in my head over and over.

"I'm not like a car you can fix up. I'm never gonna run right."

I wasn't. I would never ever run right. But I guess i'd just have to make an exception with Jerry...

The End
