Forget the World
The Song: Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
Finley and Leyton have been best friends since birth and they know each other more than a person could know another. So what happens when Finley's heart is broken and Leyton comes knocking to find out what is wrong? Will he admit his feelings for her and could it turn a new page to an old story?
Forget the World
Meanwhile, Leyton Oakley stood outside of the tree house entry debating whether or not he should give his best friend space or if he should see why she hadnâ€™t answered his texts. He couldnâ€™t help but worry and no one could blame him for doing so. Finley was a girl that hated making others hold concern for her and often did all she could to assure someone that she was alright. Tonight was different though, Leyton hadnâ€™t heard anything from Finley since the early hours of the morning and thatâ€™s what brought him to her house in the first place. He didnâ€™t have to go to the main entry and ask Finleyâ€™s parents where she was because Leyton knew Finley inside out, backwards and forward. He could read her better than a book.
Thatâ€™s when it dawned on him and Leyton wasnâ€™t going to wait another moment. He couldnâ€™t and he didnâ€™t. He opened the tree house door without a second thought and found his best friend lying on the ground with her blue eyes fixed on the roof.
â€œKnock knockâ€ His voice whispered.
â€œLeytonâ€¦â€ Finley breathed out, her voice reflecting how weak she felt inside her body.
Walking over to her, Leyton laid down on the tree house floor and purred, â€œI knew you would be here. Whatâ€™s wrong Fin?â€
â€œMy heartâ€¦ it hurts.â€ She whimpered in response, her legs curling to the side.
Leyton could sense the pain she was feeling radiating off her. It was more than just summertime sadness. Leyton, seeming to know the right way to comfort his friend, reached forward and placed his hand on her shoulder, â€œWhat did Blake do?â€
Finley looked over at Leytonâ€™s grey eyes and started to sob. No words came out of the sobs, but Leyton felt what had happened at that instant. He scooted closer to her and whispered into Finleyâ€™s ear,
â€œFin, heâ€™s an idiot for doing that and heâ€™s going to regret letting you go.â€
She sniffled while Leyton continued, â€œWe donâ€™t need him. Weâ€™re like Batman and Robin remember? We do it ourselves.â€
Finley nodded causing Leyton to ramble on, â€œFinleyâ€¦ this isnâ€™t something that comes easy to meâ€¦ but I need you to hear it even though this isnâ€™t a good time.â€
â€œNoâ€¦ please.. Ley.. donâ€™t say it..â€ Finley whispered in plead, realizing what was on his mind.
â€œI canâ€™t.â€ Leyton cooed, â€œIâ€™ve held it in too longâ€¦ and I know youâ€™ve been hurt by these three words before, but Finleyâ€¦ I love youâ€¦ youâ€™re my best friend for a reason and I love your madness.â€
Finley didnâ€™t reply, she simply closed her eyes and curled up against Leyton, her shoulders shaking while she started to sob again. It was different this time though and slowly, she fell asleep crying. Leyton would stay awake, just lying there with her, stroking her hair as he held her in his arms. Together, there was something buried deep inside them, a little thing called love and that was the reason they could always forget the world as one.
