It feels like this should be the last chapter. I might write an epilogue considering Effy and Luke but I doubt it. This was more about Naomi finding Emily, the whole Naomily relationship thing has been done so many times. I hope you had a nice time reading my story and I am terribly sorry it took me so long to finish this :)
Also, I am currently writing a crossover called White Coat, check it out, it's Naomily/House M.D. thing and much more longer/complicated so I think you'll like it.
"I thought you'd be here." I say, slowing my steps and standing in front of him.
He gives me a tight smile and pats the place next to him, inviting me to sit next to him. He takes a spliff in his hand and shows it to me, I nod and take it, slowly inhaling it into my lounges.
Feel like a déjà vu. Being on this bloody bench that was a turning point a few times in my life. I hoped this would be a turning point too, but a good one.
"So, how is she?" I ask Luke who held his head in his hands, staring somewhere in the distance.
"She's… better. Much better. I spoke to her therapist and got to visit her last week, she's much better."
I place my hand on his shoulder, giving him a reassuring look, that everything is going to be okay. He knew this is going to happen someday. Effy went bonkers. She tried to commit suicide. Even though Luke never told me this because I haven't seen him since I came to this shed, I tried to get to know what is happening in his life. I wasn't possessive, just…. Worried. Effy and him had this weird platonic relationship and it felt like he has been hiding it since I met Effy. He tried to hide it by fighting with her. But obviously there are some things, like love, that you cannot hide.
Yesterday I called him so we could meet here. I needed to see him.
I'm with Emily for a month now. She is everything I could ask for. I love her so much. And she loves me.
"How's Ems?" he says.
"Emily, how is she?"
"Oh, she's good. She had another exhibition in London. I'm really proud of her."
"I got a job. As a teacher on this university. It's really not that…"
"What the hell, Naoms? That's huge. Congrats." He stretches his arms and gives me a loose hug. It felt nice.
"Thank you, Luke."
"You're welcome, Naomi."
And so we sat like that, and in that moment it really felt like everything was at place. We both smile like nothing ever really happened.
thank you for your patience, have a nice day, x
