A/N: This time I put both Mike and Nicole’s P.O.V.s. Enjoy (:
Chapter 8: Nicole- Dreams
I was falling. Through a deep cave.
There was a light at the top of the cave and I could see my dad there watching me fall.
“Dad, help me! Help me! Please!” I yelled up to him.
He still stood there and watched me. Then he left.
I woke up in a cold sweat.
I looked around the room. I almost forgot that I was at Mike’s house. His clock read 4:12 a. m.. My throat was dry. I really needed something to drink.
I got out of the bed and went downstairs. Mike was still sleeping. I tiptoed to the kitchen. Mike’s mom always had pile of food and drinks. So I got some cookies and lemonade. I sat on one of the stools at t he table.
I turned around surprised. I must have made a lot of noise if I woke Mike up.
“Oh sorry I didn’t mean to wake you. I just came to get something to drink.”
He rubbed his eyes sleepily. I really did feel bad for waking him up. He sat down in front of me.
“You okay?” he asked.
“Yeah, I’m fine.”
I looked at him. He still looked kind of tired.
“You should go back to sleep,” I told him.
“No, I’m good. I’m already up.”
I felt a wave of guilt wash over me. First I woken him up in the middle of the night, then I had taken his bed, and now I was waking him up again.
“Sorry for waking you up.”
He smiled. “Nicole, it’s fine.”
I tried to smile but I still felt bad. We were quiet for a few minutes.
“So how are you and Traci doing?” I asked, just trying to break the silence.
“So how are you and Traci doing?” she asked me.
“Uhh, we’re good. I guess,” I told her.
I had completely forgotten about Traci. What was I going to do about her?? Now that I know that I like Nicole, I don’t think that I can stay with her. But I can’t break up with her. I just told her I loved her.
I was just going to have to forget about Nicole. She probably didn’t even like me the way I liked her. In her eyes I was probably just her ‘best friend Mike’. If only she knew the way I felt about her, then maybe she would feel it too. No no no. That was stupid. She would never feel that way about me.
“Mike? Mike? Are you okay?” Nicole said.
“Huh? Oh yeah I’m okay. I was just thinking,” I assured her. I must have zoned out.
“A penny for your thoughts,” she asked.
I laughed. She loved old quotes and would just throw them into a conversation.
“Nothing of importance,” I told her. She definetly didn’t need to know that I was thinking about her.
She looked at me as if she was still trying to figure out what I was thinking. She gave up and shrugged her shoulders.
“Where’s Katy? isn’t she usually up at the crack of dawn?”
I smiled. Katy was always up early.
“She‘ll be up soon.” I looked at the clock. It read 4:45. “Since when do you get up so early?” I asked her. Last time I checked Nicole didn’t wake up until noon.
She shrugged again. “Bad dream,” she said.
I frowned. She was probably still shaken up about her dad. I felt bad. She was usually so strong. But just a couple hours ago she seemed so vulnerable, so fragile. Like if I even looked at her too hard she would break. I never wanted that to happen to her again.
It was silent again.
“Well, I’m going back to sleep,” she said.
“Goodnight or good morning. I don’t know which one to use.”
She laughed, said goodnight, and walked back up stairs.
What was I going to do?
A/N: Sorry this was one was kind of boring. It was more like a filler chapter. Sowwy! :/ Thanks for reading!
