Heartbroken Elliott

by: Terrell James

A/N: It's a romance-drama for "Open Season." This is my first OS fanfic that I've in a while, so please don't say it sucked. There's a song from this chapter called "When There Was Me and You" from High School Musical. I hope you guys like it. It's been on my mind for the past 3 weeks, and I decided to make my own. Let me know what you think. It will be sweet!

Chapter 1: The Break-up

On a clear day in the forest, Elliott walked past the river and saw his girlfriend, Cassie, looking a little sad. He looked a little concerned and walked up to her and said, "Hey, Cass. What's wrong?"

Cassie sighed sadly and said, "Elliott, I need to talk to you."

"This must be serious. I need to sit down for this." said Elliott.

Elliott sat down and listened to what Cassie was about to say to Elliott. She said, "This relationship isn't working out for the two of us. We haven't been seeing each other for a while and I think I'm sick of it. I love you as boyfriend and girlfriend. We've been together for 8 months now and we barely see each other."

"I see you. Every single week, I see your beautiful face, eyes and smile and we always watch the sunset and moonlight." said Elliott.

"I know and I will cherish these moments I had with you." said Cassie.

Elliott looked a little scared and said, "W-what are you trying to say, Cass?"

She sighed heavily with tears going down her face and said, "I think we should see other animals. That being said, I'm breaking up with you."

Elliott looked a little shocked and breathed heavily and felt a little shaken. He turned to her and said, "Why would you break up with me?"

"Because we never see each other and we hardly speak. It's been 3 weeks since we've last seen each other. I hope you understand and hope we will stay friends." said Cassie.

Elliott sighed and said, "Yeah, I understand."

Cassie started to cry and walked away from Elliott. She turned around and said, "Goodbye, Elliott."

She ran off the forest, leaving Elliott alone with tears streaming down his face and started to sing to himself:

It's funny when you find yourself

Looking from the inside

I'm standing here

But all I want is to be over there

Why did I let myself believe

Miracles could happen?

Cause now I have to pretend

That I don't really care

I thought you were my fairy tale

A dream when I'm not sleeping

A wish upon a star

That's coming true

But everybody else could tell

That I confused my feelings with the truth

When there was me and you

I swore I knew the melody

That I heard you singing

And when you smile

You made me feel

Like I could sing along

But then you went and changed the words

Now my heart is empty

I'm only left with used-to-be's

And once upon a song

Now I know you're not a fairy tale

And dreams were meant for sleepin'

And wishes on a star

Just don't come true

Cause now, even I could tell

That I confused my feelings with the truth

Because I liked the view

When there was me and you

I can't believe that I could be so blind

It's like you were floating

When I was falling

And I didn't mind

Because I liked the view

I thought you felt it too

When there was me and you

After singing the song, Elliott laid down near the river, look at his reflection and started to cry for a few minutes. He looked up at the sky and said softly to himself, "I love you, Cassie. Goodbye."
