Chapter 7 – Seeking for Advice

Focusing on the television before him, Brian was watching a movie and as it

was close to the end, the boy had just confessed his feelings for the girl he was in love with since forever. His feelings were eventually returned with a kiss and then walked hand in hand by the lake.

"I wish I could do that," Brian thought. But it seemed impossible to do though. He sighed.

He wanted to tell Ashley how he felt for her but how?

What Brian really needed was advice.

And as he turned to his best friend who was currently in the middle of reading a good book, Brian knew right away just who to ask.

"Hey. . .Paul?"

"Yeah?" Paul still had his eyes glued to the novel.

"Can I ask you something?"

"Sure."

"It's uh. . .about Ash."

Paul finally tore his eyes from the novel and turned his focus to Brian. "What about her?"

"Well. . .it's just that I need to. . .tell her something."

"What is it?"

Brian began to scratch the back. Paul could tell that he was nervous. Whatever he was going to say probably was what made him uncomfortable.

"Go on," Paul urged in a calm manner.

Brian breathed out a sigh before opening his mouth again to speak.

"I. . .I . . .sorta. . .kinda. . ." He sighed again before speaking rather quickly. "Okay I like her."

So he said it. It was out of his chest, finally.

"So you finally admit it."

"Come again?" Brian asked with a confused look on his face.

"Oh you thought that I haven't noticed?" Paul's lips formed a smirk. "All those times you talked about her, the night you followed her and Punk on the date. . ."

"So wait. You mean you knew?"

Paul chuckled in amusement to see Brian's look of surprise. "Let's just say that I didn't pick up the signs until last night."

"Oh."

"Yeah. I just thought that I would wait until you say something. And now you have."

Brian nodded. "Yeah. . .so. . .I like Ashley but I'm sure of what I should do about it."

"You could tell her."

"But that's the thing. I can't tell her when she's dating Punk."

"Well you could still try. What have you got to lose?"

Brian shrugged. "I don't know. Her friendship?"

"She's not going to hate you for liking her," said Paul.

"But still now that I'm thinking about it. . .it might not worth telling her."

"If you keep it to yourself it's not going to worth anything at all" said Paul. "I know it sounds hard but believe me, it's better to get it out of your chest."

Brian nodded. "So you think I should tell her even though she's dating another guy?"

"Even so. Just tell her how you feel."

Brian nodded. There was one thing he was uncertain about though.

"And what if she doesn't feel the same way I do for her?" he asked.

"Well if she doesn't feel the same way then she doesn't. You can't force a girl to like you. The only how a girl will like you is if her feelings are genuine and are returned to you. That's the way love goes."

Brian nodded again. So much for asking for advice. "I think I gather that now. Thanks."

"You're welcome," said Paul with a smile. "Well I'm going to sleep now. Are you?"

"Yeah," Brian answered but he muttered, "I guess I am."

"Good night Brian."

"'Night Paul."

"Just think about what I said, okay?"

"Okay."

Soon Paul was under the covers of his double and drifted to sleep minutes later. Brian however was still awake as he stared at the ceiling. His mind was still digesting Paul's words. So he was advised to tell Ashley his feelings.

What was the point in that?

Brian needed to do more than telling her. Then something else came to mind. Maybe there was something that he could do.

Instead of telling he liked her, why not show it?

Smirking at that idea, Brian slid under the covers and turned off the little lamp. He knew exactly what to do.

And he couldn't wait for tomorrow to arrive.
