"Why am I feeling like this? Why does my heart beat fast and I feel nervous whenever he's around? Why do I get mad at him but never hate him?" I curiously said while my cheeks turned all rosy red.
"You love him Maka. You love Soul." Tsubaki said with a gleam.
"What! Love?!" I nervously replied to what Tsubaki said.
"Yeah, you're in love with Soul. So, tell me the whole story." Tsubaki said in excitement.
"Well, I guess I really am in love. When I first met Soul, I honestly thought he was the one, the one I would be with forever. But I just ignored my feelings and tried to forget them cause I was scared that he might turn out to be like my dad and just leave me someday. On the other hand Soul saved my life, not only once but countless times, he was ready to put his life on the line just for me, that's when I fell for him. Right now my feelings for him are so strong that I'm prepared to take risks, I'm prepared to get hurt." I soulfully said.
"I'm so happy for you Maka, I hope Soul feels the same way. I promise I'll help you two get together!" Tsubaki said with determination.
"You need to confess Maka. That is if you're ready." Tsubaki said in a different and more serious tone.
"I'll do it! It will be the first thing I do when I go home!" I said with sheer determination. I said those words with no second thoughts, it just came to mind and I went with it. I'll take this chance, I'll take it before someone else might want to take it.
"Thank you Tsubaki! Thank you for all your advice! I'll be going now. I still have some confession to do." I said while I walked away and waved goodbye, Tsubaki waved back.
Before I knew it I was standing in front of our apartment door. I've been holding the doorknob for several minutes now. This is it, I'm gonna bone my heart, I'm gonna pour my heart out, I'm gonna confess. I don't know whats gonna happen, what Souls reaction will be, what I know is that my feelings are true. I took a breath to gather my courage and finally turned that doorknob.
The next scene I saw was a boy with crimson eyes and snow-white hair embracing a girl ever so tightly. That girl isn't me. Who is that girl Soul is with?!
"Um....Soul...." I muttered with a shaking tone seemingly about to break and burst to tears.
"Oh! Hey Maka you're home!" Soul happily said with the biggest smile on his face.
"This is Sylvette! She's my childhood friend and best-friend!" He said again with now a bigger smile.
"Hey. My name is Maka. Nice to meet you." I said. But why was there a sadness in me?
"Excuse me I'll be heading to my room." I said then dashed of to my room.
Arriving inside my room, I immediately locked the door shut and tears streamed down my face. Why am I crying? Why? Am I jealous? Maybe. Come on Maka she is just Soul's best friend, his best-friend he never told me about. Anyway, what I did was pretty rude, I should go apologize and try to know her better. Who knows? We might become close friends.
I wipped the tears off my face. And just when I was about to turn the doorknob I heard Soul's laughter along with Sylvette's. I let go off the doorknob.
