Hey! I couldn't be more excited or nervous for this story, but my goal is to make sure your love it! ENJOY!
Nina Martin stared at the blank computer screen in front of her. It was enough struggling with the pressures of her job, but now she had to focus on making her dream come alive.
All Nina's life she wanted to be an author. When her parents died, she hoped someday she could write about life without them. Now that she was sitting alone in her London apartment, actually in the mood to write, she just couldn't put the pain she's been feeling for almost 15 years in words.
"Come on Nina, just write the damn story!" She said to herself.
Nina's train of thought was broken when she heard to telephone ring.
"Hello?" Nina asked.
"Hey Nines!" It was Amber on the other line. Nina and Amber had been inseparable since they first met each other in college. Things have changed since they were 18, though. They aren't the little kids they used to be. Now, they're 25 and independent.
"Hey Ambs, what's up? How's Mick?" Nina asked. Amber and Mick had been dating since junior year of college.
"He's fantastic. Anyway, I called because I need you to pick me up at the apartment. Mick won't let me drive his car because of what happened before…" Amber's voice trailed off.
Nina laughed. "Oh yeah! You drove his car into the mud and you had to get towed. That was hilarious. But seriously Ambs, you have GOT to get your own car."
"I'm working on it. I almost have enough money for my dream car. I just have to come up with another great outfit for the store, and I'll have enough. But let's get back to why I need you to take me. I need to go get a dress. Mick's taking me to see a concert tonight." She replied happily.
"Why do you need a second opinion? You're usually pretty good at picking dresses yourself."
"But this is Mick we're talking about. Plus, he also got me back stage passes. I wanna look good when I get to meet One Direction!" Nina could tell she was stamping her foot and pouting. She knew there was no way to say no to that.
"Alright Amber, I'll be over in about 30 minutes. Just give me time to get a shower and all that stuff."
"Ok, but dress nice, because we're going to this really elegant dress shop!" This is where things started to go downhill.
"Amber! An elegant dress to a concert? That doesn't make much since."
"Please! For me?"
"Ok, but in that case, it's going to be an hour before I get over there. I guess I'll just have to wear my work clothes."
"You're the best Nines. Bye!" Amber said before hanging up.
Nina put down the phone, then went to take a shower. Nina didn't like to admit it, but when she showered, she thought about her life. And how it turned out completely opposite of what she thought it would be. At this point in her life, she thought she'd be a famous author, and married to a great guy with a baby on the way all ready. Wow. She was WAY off.
Nina hopped on the elevator to the lobby of her classy apartment building. She was surprised to walk out to a rainy afternoon.
It's raining? Nina thought to herself. Have I really been in my apartment that long?
She shook her head in disbelief, not wanting to convince herself that she need to get a boyfriend, or a dog or something. She jumped into SUV and drove the short ten minutes it took to get from her apartment, to Amber and Mick's.
She rang the doorbell and was greeted by her ecstatic and always overdressed best friend.
"Nines!" Amber squealed as she gave her BAF (Best American Friend) a quick hug.
"Hey Ambs. Hey Mick!" She yelled into the other room, where he was, of course, watching the football game (English football).
"What's up?" He said through a mouthful of chips and beer.
"Sometimes, I don't know how we ended up falling in love." Amber said in a dreamy voice.
It wasn't until then when Nina saw he was with someone. A boy. The most handsome man Nina had ever seen. His hair was a dark brown, and it swooped to the side. He had muscles, but he wasn't too ripped, just like Nina wanted. His eyes…Oh my god his eyes were a beautiful chocolate brown that glistened in the light.
"Hey Amber," Nina whispered. "Who's that over there with Mick?"
"Oh, that's Fabian. He's been Mick's best mate since we graduated. Why?" Nina looked at her best friend and didn't say a word. Amber let out a big gasp. "You think he's cute don't you?" Amber whisper yelled.
"Shut up Amber. It's bad enough to know a guy like that would never be interested in me, you don't have to mock me about it."
Hey Mick," Fabian said from the other room. "I'm getting more dip, you want another beer?"
"Get me two more. I need to drown my sorrows for our team. They're getting their asses beat."
"You could've just said yes." He replied back laughing. It was then that Nina realized he had an angel's voice.
Suddenly, Fabian ran into Nina, and salsa got all over her outfit.
"Holy shit I'm so sorry," Fabian said. He looked up at Nina and felt his stomach drop. A million thought went into Fabian's head, not all of them appropriate. All he could do was stare at her. He was looking into her amazing blue eyes. He thought to himself, this is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. He kept staring at her like an idiot until he realized he had possibly ruined her clothes.
"Hey don't worry about it. It's okay." She smiled at him then turned to Amber. "Can I borrow some clothes?"
"Sure no probs. Come with me." Nina smiled at Fabian once more before turning around to go to Amber and Mick's room.
"Hey dude," Fabian whispered to Mick. "Who was that girl?"
"That's Amber, dumb ass." Mick replied with a sort of "duh" tone in his voice.
"No you git, whose her friend?"
"Oh, her? That's Nina, Amber and her have been best friends since we were freshmen's," Mick replied.
"So she and Amber have been best friends since college, and you and I have been best mates since college? And this is the first time I'm meeting her?"
"Wait a minute. You like her, don't you?" Mick asked with a smirk on his face.
"I don't even know her. She is the prettiest girl I think I've ever seen."
"Mate, you just need to go for it. You're 25, you have some muscles, and you're a freaking doctor! What girl could resist a doctor?"
"You're right. I should go apologize, and give her my number. Is that too pushy?" He asked a little unsure of himself.
"You really don't know anything about women. Girls will practically do anything for a guy's phone number."
"Okay, I'm going to do it then." He said even more unsure now.
Nina and Amber came back in the room. Nina had changed into one of Amber's really girly outfits, that Nina wouldn't be caught dead in.
Fabian gathered up all the courage he had, and went up to Nina. "Hey, I'm really sorry about what happened." He said with a sincere look in his eyes.
"It's okay. It was an accident. I forgive easily," Nina smiled. God, he was so adorable. "I'm Nina by the way."
"I'm Fabian. Listen can I ask you something?"
"Sure, go ahead." Nina said smiling, hoping he was about to ask her what she thought he was going to ask her.
"Would you like to go out sometime? There's a fair in town, if you'd want to go with me." YES, he did ask her!
"Yeah that would be great."
The two exchanged numbers, then Amber and Nina had to leave. As Nina got in her car, she couldn't help thinking there was something about him that gave her butterflies. And he felt it too.
AHHH! I can't wait to see where this multi-chapter goes. R&R and thanks for reading!
