Sarah's POV

I was lying on my bed, staring up at the ceiling, crying my eyes out, wondering how this happened.

It’s been three days, and not a single call from Zak. It really was over between us, but I didn’t want it to be. It was all that bitch, Amber’s, fault.

God, you think I’d be done crying by now, or at least dried my eyes out, but no. I’m still crying. I haven’t even gotten any sleep since then. My family will never admit it to me, but I know they all think it was my fault that Zak broke up with me. Well, screw them. Screw them all.

I really miss Zak.

Well, if I won’t get to sleep, then I guess I’ll go play a new song. I got out of bed, but as soon as I did, I clutched my heart. Ever since Zak and I broke up, it’s been really hurting like I was having a heart attack, which I probably was.

I managed to get to the music room and sat at my piano. I placed my fingers on the keys and started playing:

I can’t sleep tonight

Wide awake and so confused
Everything’s in line
But I am bruised
I need a voice to echo
I need a light to take me home
I kinda need a hero
Is it you?

I never see the forest for the trees
I could really use your melody
Baby I’m a little blind
I think it’s time for you to find me

Can you be my nightingale?
Sing to me
I know you’re there
You could be my sanity
But bring me peace
Sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale

Somebody speak to me
Cause I’m feeling like hell
Need you to answer me
I’m overwhelmed
I need a voice to echo
I need a light to take me home
I need a star to follow
I don’t know

I never see the forest for the trees
I could really use your melody
Baby I’m a little blind
I think it’s time for you to find me

Can you be my nightingale?
Sing to me
I know you’re there
You could be my sanity
But bring me peace
Sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale

I don’t know what I’d do without you
Your words are like a whisper cutting through
As long as you are with me here tonight
I’m good

Can you be my nightingale?
Feels so close
I know you’re there
Oh, nightingale
You sing to me
I know you’re there
‘Cause baby you’re my sanity
You bring me peace
Sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale

Oh
Mm, mm

Mm

After I finished the song, I felt a little better. I think it motivated me enough to try and patch things up with Zak. But it was late.

I went back to my room, lied down on my bed, and waited until the morning.


Zak’s POV

I was feeling like crap. I thought I’d be over it by now, but how can I get over it quickly when we were together for three years?

“Here. I got you some ice cream,” Amber offered. “It’ll cheer you up, I hope.”

“Actually, it won’t,” I said.

“Why?”

“Because whenever I have ice cream, it reminds me of my very first kiss with Sarah. We were sharing a bowl of ice cream when it happened.”

“Oh. Then, yeah, it won’t cheer you up. Oh well. More for me.”

She sat down next to me on the couch and started eating it with a spoon.

I laughed. “You’re cute.”

I don’t know why I just told her that, but she took it lightly.

“Thanks. You’re not so bad yourself. But can I be honest with you?”

“Of course you can.”

“I can’t help but feel partly guilty for your break up with Sarah.”

“Why?”

“Well, I overheard your argument with her.”

“How? We were outside.”

“Not important right now. But I know it was about me.”

“It wasn’t your fault, Amber. Sarah crossed a line, and I couldn’t stand it any longer.”

“And yet, you can’t stop thinking about her.”

“I can.”

“Are you thinking about her right now?”

“Well, we’re talking about her right now, so yeah.”

“What about before I brought her up?”

“No,” I said.

“What were you thinking about?” Amber asked.

“You.”

She blushed. “Oh.”

She turned away from me and became interested in her ice cream, taking another bite out of it.

“Amber,” I said.

She faced me. “Hmm?”

I leaned in and kissed her. It took her a moment to register to it. She kissed me back, but then she dropped her ice cream.

“Oh, Zak,” she said.

“Leave it,” I insisted.

“What?”

“Leave it. Komodo will probably eat it later.”

“What? No! I’m not wasting perfectly good ice cream.”

“Really?”

“Yes, really.”

“You’re weird.”

“You’re just now realizing that?”

I laughed.

I could tell she was nervous. It made me wonder if she’s ever been in a situation like this before.

“Zak?”

I was surprised to hear whose voice that was. “Sarah? What are you doing here?”

She was standing a few feet away. Her eyes were red and puffy from crying. “I’m here because I miss you. And I want you back.”

“I—I don’t know what to say,” I said.

“Say that you’ll take me back and we can forget this whole thing ever happened. Will you say that?”

I looked at Amber, who was really nervous sitting right next to me.

“That depends,” I said. “Will you take back what you said about Amber?”

“What?” Sarah asked.

“You heard me.”

“I . . . I—”

“Sarah.”

She sighed. “No. No, I won’t.”

“Then, I’m sorry.” I grabbed Amber’s hand. “I can’t take you back.”

Sarah looked really hurt, even more at the sight of me holding Amber’s hand. “I understand.” Her voice was barely a whisper. “Goodbye, Zak.”

She teleported out of the room.

“That was kind of cold,” Amber told me, pulling her hand out of mine. “But are you sure you wanna do this, Zak?”

“Do you like me?” I asked.

“What?”

“Do you like me?”

“Yes.”

“Then, yeah. I’m sure.”

I kissed her again. The more I did, the more my heart hurt.

But I didn’t care.


Aww. Neither of them are taking this well. And that was cold what Zak did, but I guess Sarah had it coming. And she has even worse coming for her.

Anyway, quiz time!

What was the name of the song that Sarah sang, and who sings it?

Please review here.
