Kathryn Myles has always had a thing for story books, where one meets there prince charming. She know's in the real worl it wont be all the easy to find, but after getting stood up once by Derek she decided s to give him one more chance. But that one more chance lead's her onto the perfect road of happiness, that she would of never seen before.

Fairy tales have always played there part in my life, ever since I was a little girl. I would run around like every little girl in there princess outfit, pretend to be in danger and wait for my prince charming. I remember one day I laid in my bed and waited for my prince to come and kiss me to wake me up. In the end my father came up and kissed me on my forehead, of course I was young then and had quite the obsession for Sleeping Beauty, Beauty And The Beast and of course Cinderella.

Those fairy tales, where my dreams. I wanted to wake up to be being given a kiss by my one and only prince, who’d then sweep me of off my feet and we’d ride away into the sun set. Of course that didn’t actually happen. But, I’m still waiting.

See, ever since I’ve turned 13 everyone told me fairytales, only belonged in books and movies, but I never let anyone get to me. Of course I got made fun of, but I put it past me and just kept on smiling. Beside’s what would life be if I wasn’t happy?

You must be wondering how old I am now, right? I’m now 22 years of age and still waiting for my fairytale. I had a few crushes in High school, dated a few guys but nothing ever felt right.. You know when you kiss someone and you feel nothing and then as you go on you realise there’s never going to be anything special between you? I had that with everyone of those guys.

See, most of my friend’s are still with guys they were with in College. Nope, not me. I was working two job’s. One as coffee house waitress and a pharmacist who worked on her own time. I had to admit that the pay was really rather good. £400 pound’s a day and working two day’s a week got me £800 a week and well with the Coffee job on the side, I guess you could say I wasn’t exactly low of money.

Well I suppose you could say that I ought to start with the story now, right? Well you are.

“ Kat you smell like coffee.” Jacob muttered as he walked into my apartment, his baby blue eye’s looking me up and over, almost as if he was approving my choice of clothes.

Jacob Millers, has been my best friend since, well I can remember. He’s been through it all with me. I mean he was like a big brother, always there when I needed cheering up and if someone had dumped me, he was ready to smash there face in. His rant’s on what he’d do to them where the best. But the best thing about Jacob was those baby blue eye’s he had, they always managed to suck me in and there I broke and he would pretty much win. I was a sucker for blue eyes.

“Well I do work at a coffee house on Thursdays, Jake” I said smiling as I took his coat, while he just went and made himself right at home, on the sofa. That was pretty normal. I mean every time he would come over to see me, he’d head straight for the couch and kick his feet up.

“Well you show up on your date next week like that and he might ditch you for some posh trotty.” Jacob said jokingly as he started flicking through the channel’s trying to find something to amuse him.

“You know you really don’t help boost my confidence. I mean we’ve been flirting for ages and after the last date that he stood me up on I don’t really think I’d like the whole idea of bad idea’s in my head.” I muttered bringing in two beer’s out of the fridge for us to drink.

“Don’t know why you just didn’t let me punch him first time round.” He smiled leaving the channel on Family guy. He knew I hated the channel and always seemed to love putting it on to tick me off. It sure did work.

“Do we really have to watch this?” I grumbled, taking a sip from the beer bottle in my hand. “Fine, we can sit and play a boring game of scrabble, sound fun?” He muttered switching off the TV, before trying to face me.

“Since when did you play scrabble?” I asked rather shocked with the fact he even knew the game. I mean Jacob had never really been one for word games, I mean he would of rather dated one of his ex girlfriends, than play that game.

“I don’t, I’d rather be childish and play Chubby Bunny like we did when we were kids.” He smiled sweetly his eye’s looking straight into mine. It was the sort of sweet smile that made me know that he’d want me to look for the marshmallows and play against him, knowing I’d lose. Of course, I knew I’d give in he was to darn cute. Well cute wasn’t the word.. Gorgeous and Hot was more of the words, but he’d never let me live it down if I told him he was. His ego was already huge.

“Fine… I’ll go and look to see if I have marshmallows.” I muttered, pushing myself up of off the arm chair to see where I’d last had my marshmallows for my hot coco. “FOUND THEM!” I called in from the kitchen, as I went up onto tip toes trying to reach for the new packet that I somehow placed at the top of my cupboard.

Of course, me being a little shortie doesn’t help. I’m a 22 year old women who’s 5’4 and a half, of course that half is totally important to me. I remember whacking Jacob with a pillow when he forgot to add the half. So, it’s important.

“Are you okay in there shortie?” Jacob asked as he poked his head through the door, smiling at the scene. “I’m fine.” I said jumping up to try and reach the marshmallows, but only seemed to push them further into the cupboard.

“Sure you are” He said mockingly as he leaned over me, grabbing the marshmallows and waving them in my face as I turned around to send him my small death glear.

“You planted them there, I swear.” I said poking my tongue out at him.

“Are you accusing me officer?” He smiled sliding past me to get ‘his’ place on the couch, even though It was my house.

“Yes; now you can allow me to actually win this time around.” I smiled snatching the packet out of his hand before he could protest.

As I turned around to start walking to get my side of the couch before his legs would take up the whole space, with him laying down; Suddenly I found him wrapping his legs around my waist, his arms around my shoulders. Great I had a giant on my back.

“Ahhh! Jacob, your too heavy!” I said almost falling onto the couch with him on my back.

After we’d calmed down of half an hour of joking around and hysterical laughter we actually decided to get on with out challenge of ’Chubby Bunny.’ As a kid I would always lose thinking that if I put one more marshmallow in my mouth I’d choke and die. Yeah, what a way to lose, by thinking you’re gonna die. Great, right?

“42 chubby bunny” Jacob’s muffled voice from all the mini marshmallows he had in his mouth, made it hard for me not to laugh and end up spitting them all out into the bowl in front of us.

“37 chubby. .. Bunny.” I was now starting to struggle fitting in the marshmallows, as well as trying to say chubby bunny. That’s when I knew I’ve lost I mean there’s no way I can even say chubby bunny when It get’s to forty two.

As he went to pick up the next marshmallow for his big job to consume he held the bag showing there was no marshmallows left. Meaning, he’d won. I quickly spat out the soggy marshmallows out of my mouth and into the bowl, while Jacob waited for me finish so he could do the same.

“I am still the most amazing at that game.” He said smiling, as he looked down at the wrist watch he had on to check the time. “Thanks for another amazing Sunday night Kathryn!”

“Your going? It’s only half ten.. That’s earlier than usual.” I complained as I got up picking the bowl up to through the substance in it, in the bin.

“Yeah sorry babe, I’m needing to catch up on my beauty sleep. I mean these new job I got is really cutting my sleep, I mean I need to stay gorgeous and hot, don’t you agree?” He smiled sending me a small wink before he grabbed his coat and started opening the door.

“I hope the sleep get’s your ego smaller” I remarked waving goodbye.

“You secretly agree Kathryn”

“Please stop calling me that. Kathie or Kat! You know that.”

“Sure thing Shortie” He smiled.

“Okay, out Mr. that was strike three!” I smiled pushing him out the door, well trying to.

“Love you really Kat. Enjoy your date Tuesday!” He smiled giving me a small nudge before I finally got him out of the apartment.


“Um.. Hello, yes I’d like to be put on with Mr. Jacob Miller’s if he isn’t busy please.” I asked in what people would usually call my ‘Posh’ voice. I had a thing about speaking rather accurately on phone’s, heaven’s no why, I just did.

“Yes, hang one moment and I’ll put you through.” She seemed nice.. She was the most nicest person to ever pick up in the banks of which Jacob worked in.

“Thank you.” I smiled, twirling the house phone’s cable wire around my finger waiting to be put through.

“Hello. What can I do for you Miss. Myles” He actually sounded rather professional when he was in work, it always made me wonder if he was ever cocky in work, or would that get him fired? I wonder…

“You may help by trying to clear my thoughts of what you said last night. Thanks to you, you trollop, I’ve got myself thinking I’m going to be stood up again, tomorrow!” I muttered, laying down onto the couch.

“Oh babe you know I never meant it. He’s most likely going to meet you outside the restaurant with a big bunch of flower’s and kiss you and apologise for the whole evening until you shut him up with a kiss.” He said making me wonder if he was getting funny look’s shot his way.

“Thanks Jake.. But I don’t know, what if you were right all along?” I asked rather doubtfully and trying to remember the reason I had actually rung him while he was at work. Oh yeah.. To see If he was coming to the picture’s with Ellie and me.

“Oh and before I forget you coming to the movie’s on Wednesday with me and Ellie?” I asked quickly.

“Yeah I said I was, didn’t I? And look Kat don’t worry.. Look if your really that worried and he stand’s you up give me a ring and I’ll pick you up alright?” He said as I could hear him typing away on the keyboard to the computer I guessed in front of him.

“Thanks Jake.”

“No Problem Kathie, take care and don’t worry.” He said before hanging up the phone, he was obviously busy or just getting way to many look’s thrown his way.

Either way I wasn’t to bothered, although I was bothered about what I was going to wear tomorrow evening so what better way to pass time than looking through my closet and trying on clothes? I know.. Watching a movie.

I went over to my movie’s cabinet trying to find a good film to watch. Scanning over the list’s of film name’s I pulled out the first Harry Potter film and decided to have a Harry Potter marathon. Although I could never complete it yet due to not having part two, which I really did rather like watching.

A few hour’s later after getting to around the beginning of the Prisoner of Azkaban, I was pretty sure I’d dozed of at around that point, cause I woke to a loud thudding sound coming from the door.

“I’m coming.. I’m coming!” I yelled out making my way over to the door, to hear a voice reply back. “Good, It’s starting to get cold in this hall way.” the voice replied.. And then I knew exactly was at my door, Ellie.

I opened the door to see Ellie’s green eye’s looking down at me, her smile giving me a friendly greeting as always.

“Kathie Darling, I’m here for a simple reasons. I hear Derek asked you out again? How on earth can you give him a second chance? I mean seriously honey.. But it doesn’t matter about my opinion, now what are you planning to wear to the cinema and for your date? Don’t worry I’ll be raiding Jacob’s closet as well! Can have you both looking unfashionable, can we?” Ellie smiled her heel’s clicking away on the ground as she started strutting towards my room.

That was a typical day with Ellie, she’d make sure you were dressed fashionably it was her thing Fashion. Plus as rude as she could be sometime’s she was one of the best friends I had.

I mean Alyssa and Heather were also always there for me, but I’d known Ellie ever since secondary school. Guess you could say we had a strong friendship.

“Kathie what are you waiting for? I just found this lovely dress in here, come, come I want to see what it’s like on you.” Ellie’s cheery tone called in, while I dragged myself into the room, after closing the front door, still half asleep.

“Ellie that was my bridesmaid dress for your’s and Rick’s wedding, remember?” I asked looking at the rather over the top dress she had selected for a date. I mean Ellie’s idea of fashion and mine were on different level’s. I was fine with a pair of jeans and a top with a cardigan.. She would rather have the latest fashion, ridiculous or not.

“Oh yes, that’s why I like it!” She smiled to herself, most likely absentmindedly for her taste in clothing.

“Oh you can wear this to the cinema..” She said holding up my beige coloured dress I had from H&M for 3 when it was one sale. I actually didn’t mind that so much but that’s actually what I planed to wear for my date.

“Um, Ellie that’s what I was wearing tomorrow and how about I give you a call in the morning of the Cinema to tell you what I’m wearing” I smiled, while she nodded and started walking out of the room, heading for the arm chair.


When Ellie had actually left yesterday, she’d left me with the greatest thought’s for this date and here I was trying to keep calm and remember everything everyone had said to me. Yeah I was standing out side the restaurant waiting for Derek to show.

I had actually been standing here for a few minute’s at first It was fine.. But then the rain actually started and it was really picking up.

“Okay.. He’s going to show Kat.. He’s going to.” I told myself aloud as I slipped my phone back into my pocket after trying to get hold of him, but all I got was the voice mail again.

Soon the time passed and my mascara had run as well as the eyeliner I had on smudged, from the rain and the tear’s that left my eye’s. That’s when I decided to take Jacob up on his offer and clicked him up on speed dial.

“Um.. Jacob.. Can you come get me please?.. He didn’t show again I actually think he’s playing some sick game….” I said wiping the rain and tear’s from under my eye’s. I should of known everyone was right and I shouldn’t of even given him a second chance, I was stupid enough to think everyone deserves one.

“Kat I’ll be right there put this time If I see that douche I’m going to punch him on your behalf, okay babe?” He said but I just gave him a quick ‘Thanks’ before hanging up, to wait for him to come pick me up.

It actually didn’t take long for him to arrive all of about five minute’s, I walked down to his car, as he got out taking of his jacket, to give to me for warmth.

“Thanks..” I said sniffling from the coldness.

“Kat you must be freezing.. You know he is actually the most stupidest guy I know, how could he turn up two date’s with someone as gorgeous as you Kat? I mean your amazing and have all the great qualities every guy look’s for. Well you’d fit them in my books.” He smiled a smile I had never really seen him smile before, it was warm and with those baby blue eye’s and his now dampened hair, it looked so perfect.

Maybe my Romeo and Prince charming had actually been right under my nose? What if it was actually Jacob Millers my best friend? Was I actually falling for him?

“Come on Kat, let’s get you home.” He said opening the passenger side for me to get in. I actually thought he was going to kiss me then.. But there went my bubble I guess maybe I was the only one who felt some sort of spark between us then.

The ride home was quiet and quick, we spoke a few time’s and he said he’d meet me up at my apartment, once he’d made a call to someone, maybe a girlfriend? Or a family member? But at this late, most likely the girlfriend.

I quickly unlocked my door to sling my damp cardigan and Jacob’s jacket up on the hook, where I hang all the coats to hear Jacob’s light knock on the door.

Opening the door to seem him, he smiled and handed me a bouquet of flower’s. There were gorgeous and Lily’s my favourite flower.. But I didn’t have a shop anywhere near me that sold them.

“Where.. How did you get these? There beautiful!” I said smiling as I hugged him tightly.

“I had them in the boot of the car, I picked them up on the way down.. See I can’t see you upset anymore from all these crushes Kathryn, I mean I can’t date anyone cause I’m in love with someone totally beautiful and I want you to be like that with someone, but I need to tell you. I’m in love with you Kathryn Myles and I have been since three months ago.” He smiled, his damp soft lips pressing against mine.

First I was taken at surprise, but wrapped my arms around his neck, one hand still holding the Lilly’s in, which I ended up dropping as I closed my eye’s and lead him towards my room.


Late next morning I woke to find several mixed call’s from Ellie most likely wondering where I was, but I was to happy to even ring her back. I was happy right here in Jacob’s arms with his tee-shirt on, while he lay next to me in his tight fitting underwear, which had ‘Tasty’ written across the top, and he’s bear chest pressed against my back. I couldn’t of been happier.

A/N: So, did you guy’s like it? I hope you did! I really had fun writing it and I know I’m not the best at writing short stories and I’m sorry if it got a bit dull and lack of a storyline at the end I’m really tired and it’s 00:34 when I finished writing this. But I really hope you liked it! Thanks for reading hun! (Yeah so as I promised this was the new short story!)

I have to start off by saying my favorite princess is a tie between Aurora and Belle, not a fan of Cinderella to be honest, so I was really excited to read this:D lols, I don’t know pounds, so this is what I have to say about her pay…hmm that sounds like a good amount! Haha. Anyway, moving along,

Wooh, Jacob sounds like a cutie;P And I’m pretty sure he was checking her out. Gahhh, do I have to mention the fact he has blue eyes! Ah, so cute:D

I totally get her thing for speaking accurately on the phone, I do that too. Sounds so formal though:P Aw, he offered to pick her up. That’s a point for him.

Oh no, she was stood up, again! That’s an SOB right there. Buut Jacob to the rescue right? Oh gosh I am so in love with him:X

Aw, I really liked this. It was so cute and lovely! Great job:D

Fri, August 12th, 2011 10:31pm


Oh my favourite princess is Bell! No, I'm not so much for Cinderella but I thought what teh heck its a classic and I can't stand Snow white. It did? :D
Ahh.. sorry I'm not sure on Dollars or uro's cause I don't use them, sorry hon ^^
That's what I planned him to sound like babe!
xD you are?
I'm a sucker for blue eye's I once accidently said yes to a guy I didn't really really like cause he's blue eye's were just amazing. It didn't end well.
Oh I'm like that on teh phone to, bar I'm also slightly shy.
Indeed he did.
Haha, Point One To Jacob.
O points to Derek.
Yesh, so sad. Indeed he was, with his warm jacket and car :)
Aww I'm sorry to break your heart buit he was made up chick :P Other wise I think we'd have a cue of people waiting for him :)
Thanks so much darling, for reading and commenting! :)

Fantastic story :)

Fri, August 12th, 2011 10:34pm

Sat, August 13th, 2011 2:26am


Aww this was lovely Rhi!! Jacob and her have such a lovely relationship and I just love their game!! It just shows how comfortable they are around each other to be able to just spit out marshmallows!!
Derek may never have appeared in this story but what a douche anyway. Kat is so much better off with the adorable Jacob.
I wish there had been a little bit more to it but that's just because I'm greedy and want more cuteness but otherwise I loved it!!
Well done chica! :D
