I’m glad everything went to plan, I’m not too sure why her eyes changed colour, but I would guess because she is a girl with magic so the reactions are different.
I would have liked to stay and check she was alright, give her a quick maybe even a short echo of earlier that morning. Though I knew that was unlikely I was still hopeful, those lips, soft, gentle, wanting, so perfect. I shook my head to clear it, I needed to focus on the now more than the then.
At the door was Richard, he looked sad but still smiled, lightly. “Hey” I said
“Hey yourself” he replied “ready for Mr Beaton? We have to be there in less than five”
Nodding I said “Yes, let me grab my books and Ellie” And with that I turned and walked back to my room before heading to the kitchen, looking for Ellie.
She was still sitting at the kitchen table, and a deep thought look was on her face.
“Hey, Richards here, we are heading to lessons now” I said gently in her ear, I didn’t want to interrupt her thoughts but I had to because of lessons.
Realising she looked up a nodded, grinning, before getting up and standing beside me. Having her that close was too tempting and I wrapped my arms around her and hugged her quickly and then said “Come on, we are going to be late” I then paused “Are you alright about going with Richard” I didn’t want to see her sad or crying ever again.
She nodded and made a step towards the front door, and then she turned round, lightly kissed me on the lips and took my hand, while leading me forwards to the door.
Richard was still waiting at the door, seeing Ellie, he looked at the floor and made an obvious move to be out of her sight, but she still strode in front of me like she couldn’t care less. “Hey Rich” She called. He turned around and looked her in the eyes in surprise, and he didn’t lower his gaze. He shook his head after a few seconds, and then he fell, backwards. She dropped my hand and sprinted forwards, catching him before he hit the floor.
“What have you done?” I called after her as she laid Richard on the floor.
The look she gave me made me shut my mouth. She was concerned, she was scared.
I crouched beside her and placed my hand on hers “It’s alright”
She nodded and then shook her head before jumping up in fear, I didn’t know why until I looked up.
