Hi! This is the last chapter of Maybe It Wasn't Meant To Be. Don't be sad, cause there's gonna be more stories. Well, enjoy!
After that Eli drove me home and kissed me goodnight. I got ready for bed and had a very good sleep. I awoke the next morning to the sunlight beaming on my face and my alarm clock ringing. I brushed my teeth and got ready for school. I saw Jake in the hallway.
"Morning!" I said
"Good Morning Miss Clare Edwards." He smiled scratching his head. I laughed
"Someone's happy!" I said
"Yup. This girl..." He said sheepishly
"Yeah, I know. Jenna right?" I asked
"That didn't work out. But if I tell you who...you can't laugh!" Jake pointed at me
"Fine. Just tell me!" I said
"...Imogen." He said ready to walk away from embarrassment.
I froze and a grin creeped on my face. "Jake!" I said grabbing his arm, "Really?"
"Yeah." His cheeks turning red
"When did this happen? I thought she liked...Eli." I said confused
"Well not anymore." He smiled, "It happened last night. She was sitting alone at The Dot and she looked sad. We started talking and we actually hit it off. I asked her out on a date and she said yes."
"I'm happy for you." I put my hand on his shoulder, "Well I'm gonna get go-" I was interrupted a car's horn go beep!
"Uh what was that?" Jake asked as I went to go look out the window in my bedroom. It was Eli here to drive me to school. I smiled. I ran down the stairs and glanced at my cell phone. We had 15 minutes until we had to leave. I put my bag on the table and ran to the car.
"Good morning beautiful!" He said rolling down the window
"Good Morning." I said leaning down and kissed him "Come inside and eat breakfast with me. We have time." I said reaching my hand in the car opening the door.
"Okay. But only if I'm allowed to." Eli said turning the car off.
"Of course you are. You're my boyfriend. Glen already went to work and my mom's cooking before she goes to work." I said grabbing Eli's hand as he closed the car door
"Then let's go eat." Eli said letting go of my hand but putting his arm around me and I smiled. I opened the door and Eli greeted my mother.
"Eli. I haven't seen you for. A while." My mother said , "Are you guys...dating?"
"Yeah, for 2 months so far." Eli smiled at me and we sat down next to each other.
"Well, I'm glad to see you around here again." My mother smiled and set the food on the table. "Jake hurry up! The food is on the table! I should be getting to work, have fun at school!" She grabbed her jacket, smiled and was out the door in a rush.
"So." Eli said putting his arm around me once more and kissed me. I gladly returned the offer. Our lips moved together and he gave me an entrance into his mouth and I did so too. We kissed for about a minute more until we heard someone yell, "Awkward!"
We pulled away to see Jake coming down the stairs with his hand over his face. Eli and I laughed.
"You can take your hand off of your face now." Eli joked
"Oh okay. Good." Jake said and ran to the plate of pancakes. "Don't worry, I know you guys are dating." He said with half a pancake in his mouth.
"How?" I asked
"Imogen told me." Jake said
"Imogen?" Eli looked so confused
"They're kind dating now." I smiled at Eli taking his hand.
"Oh wow." Eli smirked, "I'm glad Imogen's happy."
We all ate our and Jake started walking to school. I grabbed my jacket, bag and Eli's hand and walked towards the car.
Eli kissed my head and whispered in my ear, "I love you."
I smiled and then remembered before we broke up, we always said we loved each other.
"I love you too." I said and Eli pulled me closer to him.
He kissed me once more before letting me get in the car and he got in as well. He wrapped his right arm around me, but used his left hand to turn the key in the ignition.
"I can't wait to hear how Adam's date went!" I said leaning my head on Eli's shoulder
"Me too. I hope it went good for him." Eli said while turning on the road.
"Adam has had such rough relationships. I want this one to be good." I said while playing with Eli's fingers. He looked down at where I was playing with his fingers and he kissed my cheek.
"Adam's a good guy, how can someone not like him?" Eli stated
We smiled at each other.
When we got to school, Clare and I walked to our lockers and got our books. We were greeted by a smiling Adam.
"Hey, how did your date go?" Clare asked Adam
"So, very, very good!" Adam said putting his hands on Clare's shoulders shaking her back and forth.
"That's good!" Clare said putting her hands on his shoulders and Adam was wide-eyed with a smile on his face. I was getting a bit jealous they're hands were on each other's shoulder and staring into each other's eyes. "Adam."
"Calm down." Clare smiled
"Oh sorry." Adam "I was daydreaming."
"That I was Tori?" Clare laughed
"Maybe..." Adam shrugged and his face turned flushed
"Just don't kiss my girlfriend." I said to Adam jokingly, wrapping my arms around Clare's waist from behind her and she laughed.
"Don't worry, Clare. We'll make Eli really jealous by running away together." Adam winked at Clare, joking.
"Yes Adam, I love you so much." Clare said escaping my grip around her waist and going to Adam and he threw his arm around her. After a few seconds they started laughing and I did too.
"Haha, very funny." I said smirking, rolling my eyes. I had to admit I was a bit jealous but I was being so silly. Clare came and walked back to me, leaning against my chest.
I closed my locker and put my arms around Clare's neck from behind her.
"Guys we have 2 minutes 'till class, we should get going." Adam started walking
"Double period of English?" Clare asked
"Yep. More time with my beautiful girlfriend." I smirked and she blushed
"That's cute." Fiona said as she saw Clare and I down the hall
"Hey Fi." I said with my arm still around Clare
"Hi lovebirds. Eli are we still on for coffee at The Dot on tomorrow?" Fiona asked me
"Wouldn't miss it." I smirked and walked to class with Clare. We entered the classroom with Adam laughing and talking about silly things. We were being us. We all sat down in class and was still talking until Ms. Dawes told everyone to be quiet.
"Alright class today I want you to work with your partners-"
"No! Can I switch my partner? Please Ms. Dawes. Audrey and I don't really...connect." Adam pleaded and I laughed at the time when she taped his face.
"I'd be glad to get away from you!" Audrey rose from her desk and glared at Adam.
"Okay, okay! Settle down!" Ms. Dawes rose her hands, "Is there anyone else who would like to switch?"
A tall, skinny girl's hand went up. She wore thick framed glasses and an orange polo. My grade? Someone I didn't know...
Then a red haired girl raised her hand timidly. She wore a purple polo and her hair was super short in length. She wore a frilly, girly headband. I assumed the both of them were English partners who didn't want to be partners.
"Alright, perfect! Adam you can pair up with Gwen, she said pointing to the blonde girl. And Audrey, you can pair up with Madelyn." She said pointing to the red haired girl.
"Okay!" Adam said. And he went over to the sit next to his new English partner. I turned around to see my beautiful English partners who was looking over at Adam and grinning.
"That was amusing." I said to her fiddling with the ring on her finger.
"She was so mean to him. I really think she's crazy." Clare laughed
"Well he has a new partner, but I have the best one in this room." I winked at her and she intertwined our fingers
Ms. Dawes voice filled the room, "Will you two lovebirds please work your assignments instead of being lovey dovey in my class?" She grinned
"Get a room!" Adam joked and Clare blushed. I smirked. Clare got out her essay and I got out mine. We traded papers but still holding hand and our eyes locked.
Soon, the double period of English was over and I got to fool around with my Clare. We walked out in the hallway and saw Adam pass us only to walk up to that girl Tori.
Clare sighed, "He's all grown up." Clare joked
"While he's over there, we're over here." I smirked leaning in and her lips met mine. I deepened the kiss and we shared a beautiful moment. Clare pulled away and looked into my eyes.
"I love you." She said
"I love you too." And I put my arm around her and pulled her close to me.
We walked to our lockers and I realized something. Everything was perfect. When we broke up everything was a mess. Though, that car ride to Jake's cabin a few months ago, is where we found the path back to each other. My memories went back to that night when Adam got shot in the hospital. And now I know Clare was right when she said "Maybe It Wasn't Meant To Be." We've been through so much. And no matter how much has happened in the year we've known each other, we fixed the broken pieces of our hearts, and filled them with each other's love again.
As Clare and I walked down the hallway of Degrassi and I saw Adam laughing with his own girl, I knew I was right. My friends were happy, I was happy and life was finally perfect again.
I hope everyone like it :) Thanks so much for reading! Review! :)
