Who could have known that three little words could easily change your life forever? Luke and Sabrina definitely had no idea how much could come from them.
Luke loves his best friend, Sabrina. Maybe as more than a friend. Sabrina knows deep inside that the feelings are mutual, but she’s afraid. She’s afraid of ruining their close relationship that they’ve had for almost 7 years. She’s afraid of getting so hooked on the idea of them being together, just to have it dissipate into thin air. She’s afraid of simply falling in love. So, Sabrina rejects Luke after he waited for 3 years to tell her how much love and attraction he felt towards her.
Read to join the crazy roller coaster of Sabrina’s life as she try’s to find a way to tell Luke her true feelings, along with some love, heartbreak, and lies sprinkled on top in “Unpredictable”.
I was casually sitting on my bed on Sunday, waiting for the text that I’ve been waiting for. Ever since Luke, my best friend, had told me on Friday that he wanted to tell me something really important at some point this weekend, I’ve just been anxiously awaiting the text that would inform me of the place and time that we would meet at.
The only thoughts that I’ve had running through my mind since that day has been weather or not he was mad at me for some random reason, or if he wanted to tell me some secret that he has. To be honest, I was terrified. Overall, Luke was an honest and non-secretive person, so the only reasonable explanation was that he was mad at me for some reason. Right?
I hurriedly raced to my bed where my phone was laying after pacing my room for a further 15 minutes.
“Hey Brina. I was wondering if you had time to meet up at 10 in Starbucks?”
“Yeah. See you there.”
I nervously glanced at my clock, realizing that I only had 15 minutes to get dressed, do my hair, and make the 5 minute drive there. So, in reality, I only have 10 minutes to get ready.
I was walking through the door of Starbucks, excitedly and nervously glancing around the small building. Then, my eyes finally landed on my best friend who had already ordered both of our drinks, getting my order perfect since we’ve been best friends for almost 7 years now.
“Hey Brina! Over here!” Luke shouted to me realizing that I had walked through the door of the small building.
“Hey Luke! So, you said on Friday that you had something important to tell me?” I said as a sat down, picking up my drink (a Cotton Candy Frappe).
“I like you. Like, like you… As more than a friend…” As he said that, I was unfortunately taking a big gulp of my drink, making me spit it out in shock.
“What?” I asked, still in shock of the humongous and relationship-changing news that I was just told.
“I like-like you. As more than a friend. I have liked you like this for over a year now.” After he said that, I was in so much shock that I shakily stood up, knocking my drink down in the process.
“I-I’m sorry. I-I-I can’t d-do this.” I said running out to my car. Then, after sitting in my car for a good 5 minutes in shock, I slowly started to drive home with tears threatening to spill from my eyes.
He can’t love me, and I can’t love him. It’s just not right. I mean, this has to be some sick kind of joke. Right?
