Down the Hall 2
A Little Green Monster Called Jealousy
Darien stood there, feeling awkward as he glanced back and forth between Serena and Seyia.
"Well, Dare. I'm not sure I you remember. But this is Seyia. We want to high school together." the petite blonde said, breaking the now awkward silence.
"I remember." Darien responded, pulling Serena closer to his side. "Sorry I don't recognize you at first. It's good to see you again."
Seyia gave him an odd smile. "Its oaky. So you two are together now?" he asked, a hint of what sounded like jealously in his voice. Seyia's gray blue eyes stated down at Serena.
Darien's girlfriend nodded. "Yeah. We got together like, what? Three years ago?" she said, her baby blue eyes meeting Darien's darker ones.
"Yep." he reaffirmed, out of the corner of his eye he could see Serena's ex roll his eyes and scoff at them as if he was slightly annoyed.
We're they acting too lovey-dovey as their friends sometimes said?
Or was Seyia oddly jealous or something?
Well. It was good seeing you, but I think we'd better go. I don't want the food getting cold. I would invite to to eat with us, but I only got enough for two." he held up the plastic bag from the Crown before heading through the open door behind Serena, leaving the two of them out in the hall.
He made his way to the kitchen, plopping the bag down on the table with a soft thud.
Musical laughter was heard coming from the doorway.
"I guess I'll see you soon, Bunny."
"Of course. Sorry about Dare. He's probably just tired. Well I should go now. Bye!"
The front door closed with an audible thump.
Serena appeared in the kitchen a minute later. "Wow. Haven't seen him in ages."
Darien turned towards her, still in the process of getting out plates and silverware from the cupboards. "Yeah." was his less then enthusiastic response.
"You didn't have to be so rude to him. Just because he's my ex doesn't mean you have to automatically hate him."
"I didn't want the food to get cold." he said plainly, taking his plate to go sit at the table.
"Yeah right. You just wanted to get away from him." she said, leaning on the kitchen counter, plucking up a fry from a to-go box while she fixed her food. "He's a great guy. Just give him a chance." she argued, waving the fried bit of potato while she talked.
Darien set down his burger, looking across the room at her. "Then why'd you two break up?"
"Because." she retorted, munching on the fry in her hand.
"Because why?" he questioned.
She moved to the table, sitting down next to him. "Reasons."
"That included what?"
She sighed. "Look. Can we just enjoy our meal?"
"So tell me more about him. As you said. I should give him a chance."
"Well, we meet in high school."
"Any thing else?"
"I think he's in a band. At least I know e was in one with his two brothers, Yaten and Taiki, all through out school. They might still be together. I'm not really sure." she said, taking a small bit of her meal. "He sings. I meet him through Mina. Yaten used to do theatre with her."
"Why did he keep calling you 'Bunny'?"
"It's a silly little pet name he gave me years ago. Said that I reminded him of a bunny rabbit. I don't know why he still calls me that. I never really liked it. but at least it's better than Meatball Head."
Darien gave her an offended look. "But your my Meatball Head. And nothing suits you better. I mean just look at your hair. It's like a pair of meatballs." he joked.
Serena rolled her eyes at him. "Yeah. And your my Jerk."
"So why did you two split. It sounds like he's a nice person." he commented, looking down at Serena with his dark blue eyes.
"Do I have to... Oh stop with the puppy eyes. You know I can't say no to that." she picked up her fork, spearing a few fries and sticking them in her mouth.
Chewing slowly she though about what to say. She swallowed. "Well the thing is. You know... we started dating in our last year of high school."
Serena took a deep breath before continueing. "He's a great guy. I mean it. It's just, well you see... he started becoming a little over protective."
"And you didn't like that, so you dumped him?" Darien asked.
"Kinda. He just started getting weird. He absolutely hated it when ever I went over to the Crown and talked to you, well argued with you, and talke to Andy. Also calling me whenever we weren't together. It got just plain weird. So I dumped him. I wasn't really ready for a relationship really. So yeah... But that was years ago. So I'm sure he's probably over me by now." she tucked a strand of flaxen hair behind her ear. "This is just strange. Talking to my boyfriend about my ex."
Darien nodded, thinking that Seyia was starting to sound a little weird.
She sat in silence, munching on her burger. "So. How was your day?"
"The same as always. I got off early and got to visit Drew at the cafe. Got dinner there. That's about it." he said. "You're birthday's coming up. Have any ideas about what you want?" He changed the subject.
"No. But knowing you, you've already gotten me something. So what is it? A book? Another kitten, because honestly. I don't really want another book and we already have a cat and I doubt we can handle another one." she said, a bright smile on her face.
Darien felt the weight of the box in his pocket. "You got me. I already got you your gift. But I not telling you what it is."
"Please, please, please?"
"No." he told her, grinning, knowing that she was going to love the locket.
Serena sighed, knowing that she wouldn't be able to figure it out. "Fine. Be that way. I'll figure it out my self." she giggled, getting up, leaving Darien sitting at the table by himself.
He sat there, pushing the scraps of his food around on his plate, his mind wandering back to when he had meet Seyia earlier.
The way Seyia had looked at them...
The looks he had given Serena.
Was it possible that Seyia might still have feelings for Serena?
That he was... jealous of them?
So that's it for this chapter.
I was kinda disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm about the previous chapter.
So I'm still not really sure of I'm gonna continue this. Writing has always been something to take my mind off of the world as well as reading. But lately I haven't really ever actually wanted to write. I'm not really sure why. I always am dreaming of great ideas that would be amazing I'm sure but when I go to write it, I'm lacking the motivation to get it done. My computers full of just started stories that could be great but are abandoned halfway through the first page.
Im thinking about taking a break from Fanfiction and writing. But I really hope you guys can talk me out of it.
