Just Us - Do You Believe

Just us batch 13


(Do you believe?)
Bella –
After having lunch with Fynn we both went back to class and bumped into Sophie.
Like seriously.
She rolled her eyes and walked passed us.
“Don’t acknowledge that.” I reminded Fynn. He’s pretty soft.
Well that’s how it was with Sophie around us for the whole day and I didn’t have a problem hanging out with Fynn, he was being pretty funny.
Sophie is old news now.
We can be friends again anytime she stops being a bitch, I don’t mind.
School was over and before I knew it, Fynn and I were waiting at the bus stop, I don’t know if it’s because of us but Sophie didn’t take the bus. Or maybe she will and doesn’t want to show up yet.
The bus finally came and as we got in the bus, I suddenly start to hear my name from afar and outside the bus…
The bus had start to move and I saw Jane, running and trying to catch up with the bus.
I quickly hurried over to the driver… “Can you please stop the bus, please. You have a new passenger.” I said and the driver stopped the bus and the door to the bus open.
Jane caught up with the bus breathing heavily and I helped her get on the bus.
She thanked me and paid for her seat before walking with me to the back of the bus. Where Fynn was.
The back seats are always the best.
Jane sat in between Fynn and I and breathed a sigh of relief or should I say a tired sigh.
“Hey Fynn.” she smiled at Fynn.
“HI” Fynn smiled back.
“looks like you’re just running for the first time in sixteen years, are you okay?” I asked cause she was still breathing rapidly.
“Yeah… I’m fine.” she nodded dragging her water bottle from her backpack and gulping the whole liquid down.
My cousin is pretty lazy.
“So… where’s Sophie I thought she always hangs out with the two of you.” Jane said.
“Well… She’s suddenly thinks we’re both annoying and doesn’t want to hang out with us anymore.” Fynn explained.
“Wh..what? You’re not annoying, none of you are.” Jane protested.
“Thank you for seeing that” I smiled at her.
“Since she thinks

we’re annoying we just did what has to be done. We stayed away from her. Anyways why are you taking the bus today?” I asked changing the subject.
“Remember… Sean and I aren’t together anymore and even though you tell me to still be friends with him and his friends
it’s still pretty awkward around us and we both keep pretending we’re fine. But we’re not, he shouldn’t pretend, cause I mean he started this whole thing, he should not be fine and also should be fine at the same time, he wants me back I can see it but why did he break up with me in the first place.” Jane questioned looking at her fingernails.
“I don’t know, we’ll never understand boys” I said.
“No boys are pretty easy to understand, not all boys actually, but Sean is easy to read, and I hope what I’m suspecting is
not the reason he broke up with me” Jane sighed.
I didn’t want to ask but I asked anyways “What are you suspecting?”
Jane looked at me, she wanted to say something but she shook her head. “it’s nothing, I just don’t hope it’s what I’m thinking”.
Fine. She doesn’t want to tell me.
The three of us became quiet until Fynn started.. “I don’t think boys are hard to understand. I think girls are the ones hard to understand”.
“You think so.” Jane laughed.
“Yeah, Cause Bella’s pretty hard to read.” Fynn blurted.
I looked at him…
“Why would you want to read or understand Bella.” Jane smiled.
“Because she’s always so quiet and gets mad so easily you don’t know what’s going on in her head.” Fynn expound.
“I don’t get mad easily.” I defended.
“You sure do. Cause every little thing I do, I get scolded by you, and then you end up asking me if I’m crazy.” Fynn half yelled.
And Jane wouldn’t stop laughing.
“That’s because you do crazy things.” I yelled back.
“Okay okay can you two stop yelling at each other” Jane laughed “You’re both annoying the few people in the bus”. She added and we both calm down…
Jane swallowed her laughs and turned to Fynn.
“You can’t blame Bella Fynn, she’s an introvert and that’s what they do”
“So you’re taking her side because…
“I’m taking no sides, I don’t know what you did for you to be scolded but you can never understand Bella. She keeps her problems, and feelings in box inside her head she won’t open.” Jane said demonstrating with her hands.
“A box?” Fynn repeated.
“What box? What the hell Jane. I don’t have a box” I rolled my eyes.
/> Jane sighed with a smile. “You may not know. But you have a box and maybe somebody you’ll finally let the people around you know what you’re thinking, quietness isn’t always the answer, show how you feel, feel free to voice out whatever you want, even though you’re getting a good or bad consequence never forget to always say it, open the box or even break the box” Jane elucidated.
“Okay mom.” I teased and she laughed.
Finally the bus stopped and we all came down..
The road was empty and quiet as alway and the three of us walked home happily.
We didn’t say much but we mostly talked about birds cause a bird suddenly came flying around our heads and our subject suddenly switched to birds.
Jane and I said goodbye to Fynn as we got home and he waved back before we both disappeared into the house.
Jane head to her room after saying she’ll be back that we should both prepare dinner together… I really like how she is now towards me. Cause all I ever wanted In this house is to be recognised, cause no one wants to experience being invisible, you also act like you don’t care but deep down you care and also want to be seen by others.
I went to my room and stripped, throwing my backpack on my bed, I made it to the bathroom and took a very cold shower that matched with my skin which had bathed under the hot sun for too long.
I changed into one of my comfortable dress and made it downstairs to see Jane in the living room and on her phone.
She hanged up and turned to me. “Oh you’re ready. So what should we have for dinner, and shouldn’t be that hard to prepare.” Jane grinned.
I smiled. “Lately, I’ve been craving for lasagna, should we have that.”
“Lasagna sounds great,” Jane replied rubbing her tummy in a funny way.
We both got to cooking, both of us wearing an apron, cause Jane said we should and both of our hairs up and in a bun.
Finally food was ready and we both sat the beginning of the dining table to enjoy our dinner.
We both ate quietly until Jane said.
“I think Fynn likes you.”
I looked up at her and she smiled.
“I mean, I saw it today, in the bus, even when we made it out of the bus, he had to say everything that was connected to you somehow, and why did he say you’re hard to understand, why would he want to be able to understand and read you if he doesn’t likes you. Don’t you see?” Jane stated.
Wow, she can really expiate some things.
“I… I… don’t even know what to say.” I said what came to my mind.
Jane smiled. “You don’t have to say anything just know. I’m pretty good at observing things.”
“Then why didn’t you clearly observe your relationship.” Jennifer’s voice said from the door of the dinning room and Jane and I our heads snapped at the door together to see Jennifer walking in.
“Just because Fynn told you he wanted to understand and read Bella doesn’t mean he likes her.” Jennifer said.
“of course like that explains it all, so get lost” Jane said and continued eating.
“So you guys are having dinner without me, ouch. Anyways Bella don’t feel too high and mighty Fynn likes you for now cause I can take any boy I want to, just like how I did with Sea–.
Jennifer quickly stopped talking but she already got bursted.
“What did you just say?” Jane asked slowly dropping her fork and standing up. “Did you just say Sean? Like that was how you did with Sean. My Sean?” Jane was fuming.
“Oops looks like I said that out loud by mistake.” Jennifer giggle.
I didn’t know when the fork Jane had dropped went flying over the table and landing on Jennifer’s face.
“Jane” I quickly stood up, that would have gotten into her eyes and would get really bad.
But Jennifer is just so… ugh I don’t even know what to call her. How can she do this to her sister. Making Sean break up with Jane.
“I can’t believe you, you disgust me.” Jane held back the tears that was about to fall.
I thought Jane was going to go fight but she walked out of the room leaving her sister to rub her head. Now that’s what we call maturity.
My whole night was spent consoling Jane and she really didn’t want to cry, she held It all in as she explained to me how she had been susoevtibg Jennifer and ever since she kissed Sean, she said she promised herself not to cry for two irresponsibles.
I’m glad she’s strong enough…
I head back to my room that night and made it on my bed. And just like I expected, Fynn knocked on my balcony door, it’s like I can tell whenever he’s Here isn’t that strange.
I opened the doors and walked out of my room and into the balcony closing the doors behind us
“You’re here again tonight.” I sighed resting my hands on the railings of the balcony.
“Like I said I can’t miss a night without coming here.” he smiled making me glance at him.
I scoff.
“What a weird routine you have.”
I suddenly remembered Jane telling me how Fynn likes me and I gulped.
Is that true? I asked myself as I looked at Fynn.
“What?” he asked as he caught me looking at him.
“Nothing.” I looked away.
Why did I have to look at him… That way.
“You like me don’t you?” Fynn asked teasingly.
“What are you talking about.” I rolled my eyes. I was supposed to ask that.
“Then why were you looking at me like that.” he questioned.
“looking at you, I looked at you, so what, looking at someone doesn’t explain whether or not you like that person.” I explained.
“It doesn’t but some looks do.” Fynn smirked.
“And how long have you observe the type of look on people and actually knows the one that yells. ‘I like you!’…” I said and he laughed.
“You may not know, but I do know Bella. But there’s one look I am actually curious about.” He said and pursed his lips into the thinnest line ever.
“Okay and what look is that?” I asked..
“The type of look where someone gets smitten by just a kiss.” He stated.
And I didn’t know why. Why my stupid heart skipped a beat.
I forced a laugh. “What the hell are you talking about all of a sudd–
His lips on mine suddenly stopped me from talking.
(Do you believe?)
But there’s one look I am actually curious about.” Fynn said and pursed his lips into the thinnest line ever.
“Okay and what look is that?” I asked..
“The type of look where someone gets smitten by just a kiss.” He stated.
And I didn’t know why. Why my stupid heart skipped a beat.
I forced a laugh. “What the hell are you talking about all of a sudd–
His lips on mine suddenly stopped me from talking.
I didn’t know how to act, should I walk away. Or should reciprocate. I was lost.
My first kiss. I mean, I didn’t even know when my hand slid across his face and I slightly opened my mouth to let his bottom lip slid in.
It was my first kiss, the way my blood ignited and the way some strange sparks went up my body, made me want to kiss even more, it was strange, Unfamiliar but yet your lips just goes with the flow. And you never really want to end the journey. It was breath seizing but yet enjoyable, my hand slid around his neck pressing him down into me even more. Wow I didn’t even know I could do this or even kiss someone.
Fynn’s hand slid around my waist and he pulled me closer to his body, we were loosing our breaths we were also loosing our minds but we never wished to stop.
It was more than magical, I used to think healing faster than normal was magical, but this was more magical, the warmth that followed our lips, it was nerve-racking at the same time excitement and pleasure was dancing along.
We were both out of breath and slowly entangled our lips from each other’s, breathing heavily in our faces, fynn’s nose rested against mine and after catching a breath or two we continued, the never ending journey.
“Sorry to interrupt!” we suddenly heard, and the excitement, the nervousness, the pleasure, everything that was following minutes ago, suddenly died down hearing that familiar.
We both turned and it was Jane, walking towards the balcony.
I let go of fynn’s neck but he didn’t let go of my waist, I had to remove his hand.
“Ja..ne what are you doing here?” I laughed nervously.
“Sorry to interrupt though” Jane apologized once again, her eyes were puffy and I think she had been crying.
Oh poor Jane.
“No you didn’t interrupt anything.” I quickly said.
“Anyways mom wants to talk to us all and she wants you to come downstairs” Jane said.
“Oh.” I said walking up to her, I paused and turned to Fynn and looking at him, my face heat up.
I couldn’t believe what just happened.
“Uhm… Fynn, goodnight, looks like I have to go now.” I said and he nodded and waved me goodbye. I quickly head out of the balcony and closed him giving Fynn one last look before heading out of my room with Jane.
We both came down the stairs and walked into the living room, to see Jennifer with her phone in her hand. Her mom and dad in front of her sitting on one of the couch and looking serious.
I greeted politely and my aunt told me to seat beside Jennifer. I did so and Jane sat beside me.
“Okay so, we called you all here to tell you-
” About the business trip you’d be attending we get it” Jennifer interrupted getting a glare from her mom.
” just shut up and listen” Jane added giving Jennifer another death glare…
Jennifer rolled her eyes and rested her back against the couch angrily.
“Okay so frank and I will be going on a business trip and won’t be coming back until seven days, and now these are the rules I want you girls to follow.” my aunt said and began stating the rules.
“No staying up late, no friends over, unless, you all have to study, no going at other friend’s place. No fighting, cook and eat, do not order food from outside, no junk food and once again no fighting, Bella you’re in charge.” My aunt stated and I nodded.
“Bella’s Incharge seriously? Jennifer rolled her eyes.
Jane sighed “Of course Bella is the oldest and besides Bella and I you’re the least smartest, you’re dumb and I’m older than you, so do not complain”.
“Older than me with four minutes, stop acting like you’re way Older.” Jennifer retorted.
“Two seconds, just a second I’m still Older.” Jane said angrily, I know she’s still pretty mad about that Sean stuff with Jennifer but doesn’t want to show it not knowing she’s showing it already.
“For once can you both not fight.” their tired looking dad yelled and they both stopped talking.
“Good” my aunt smiled., “Now remember the rules your dad and I made and Bella is in charge, you listen to her now, we’ll be taking the early flight tomorrow. If you girls run out of anything, call me immediately. Don’t go a day without eating, don’t skip your meals and especially don’t sleep late. It’s bad for your health. ” Their mother explained and they both nodded simultaneously.
What a mom, it’s just seven days not a whole year or even a month. I remembered when my dad went on business trips like this, I was always home alone. I order and eat pizza like almost every day, I didn’t stay up late, and even when I ran out of food I didn’t bother my dad. And he went on that trip for three weeks.
My aunt stood up. “Okay we’ve said what needs to be said, now time to get enough rest and prepare for the journey ahead.” My aunt said before descending to her room with her husband.
The idea of being in charge made my heart melt a little bit, I mean they’ve finally see that I’m here and that’s enough.
“Hey wait! Mom, I have something to talk about with you.” Jennifer yelled as she hurried to her mom’s room.
Jane sighed and stood up. “Okay then, goodnight. We should probably get ready to go to bed.”
“Yeah” I agreed standing up too.
“You should get some sleep to, like go to sleep, don’t kiss” she teased and my heart skipped a beat.
“Well goodnight” I quickly said and head to my room.
I closed the door to my room and the heavy sighed that followed made me roll my eyes, why am I overreacting.
I walked to the doors of my balcony and from the glass doors I could see the balcony was now empty. Fynn was gone.
Thank goodness.
I tired on my bed and watched the ceiling.
I didn’t know when I started to smile.
That night I slept thinking about… you know.
The next morning, my alarm woke me up, and immediately I opened my eyes, I felt some kind of uneasiness around my stomach.
While taking my bath, I almost lost it by puking two times.
What’s wrong with me.
I put on my clothes and brushed my hair, I tucked both side of my hair behind my ears before opening the door to my room and walking out.
I came downstairs and when I walked outside to the garage, I saw the twins, complaining about something in front of the car.
“What’s wrong?” I asked the both of them.
“Oh, just that, dad used to be the one to drive us to school and now he’s gone and none of can drive a car.” Jane explained.
“Why didn’t mom think of that and now we have to walk to school, or at least she could have rented a driver for us.” Jennifer complained.
“Well are you with the car keys.?” I asked looking at the two of them.
“Yeah, I’ve got them, why?” Jennifer asked.
“Give it to me.” I said stretching out my hands.
“What? Can you can drive a car?” she rolled her eyes.
“Why would I be asking for the car keys if I don’t know how to drive a car, I used to drive my dad’s truck. So this is nothing big” I said and Jennifer let go of the keys in my palm.
They both got in the car, Jennifer at the backseat, Jane at the passenger’s seat and me sitting at the driver’s seat.
I started the car and before they knew it, we were on the road…
And She was doubting my driving skills, I learned how to drive a car at fourteen and was allowed to actually drive alone at sixteen. My dad had fun teaching me. And I had fun learning from him…
I reduced the car speed to that on the one the roads want and continued driving.
Suddenly that uneasiness came again.
What is wrong with me!
Everything in front of my eyes starts to get double and I groaned…
“Are you okay!?” Jane asked.
“Yeah… I’m..
I suddenly saw Fynn in front of my eyes and it came like a flash. I closed my eyes and opened them again, and my sight cleared.
What the hell.
This shouldn’t happen now whatever’s happening to me. Shouldn’t happen now I’m driving.
I shook my head and focused on the road…
Thankfully nothing happened again till we finally got to school.
The girls went inside the school while I parked the car.
I got to class and head to my seat, Fynn was seated there already and he smiled seeing me.
“Hey good morning”.
“Morning.” I said and sat down. My head was now heavy and it feels like I’m carrying the whole world on my head.
I laid my head on my desk and sighed heavily.
This isn’t from the necklace is it?.
“Bella.?” I heard Fynn called.
“Are you okay?” he asked…
“Yes I’m… No I’m not” I lowly said. He’s the only person I can talk to about this, cause what if it’s from the necklace…
“Well okay can you raise your head up?” Fynn asked and I slowly turned to his side to look at him, but I couldn’t raise my head up, it was so heavy.
“I can’t.” I said to him. “What’s wrong with me?” I asked him.
He slowly bent his head towards mine and brought his face closer to mine. He made his forehead touched mine and he closed his eyes… Anybody would think we were kissing, what the hell is he doing.
All of a sudden I was myself again. No uneasiness No heaviness from my head. I sad totally fine.
Fynn slowly raised his head up closing one of his eyes. He looked like he was now in pain.
“Fynn. Are you okay!?” I asked anxiously.
“Wow. Is this what you’re feeling, this is definitely from the necklace.” Fynn said holding his head.
“What?” I was lost.
He turned to me with pain. “it’s okay, you’re fine now.” he tried to smile.
“What? What happened?” I was worried. Why is he suddenly in pain and why I am I not.
“It’s okay, I transferred the pain in you, to me, this way I can…
He suddenly passed out.
“Fynn.” I called and shook him but he wouldn’t wake up. I was about to call out for help when he slowly opened his eyes.
“Oh My God.” I breathed a sigh of relief…
“The necklace, is wearing off.” Fynn said… “And don’t worry I’m fine now.”.
“What do you mean wearing off.” I said as I glanced down at the necklace.
“if the necklace is wearing off then it means, your blood that has been imprinted on it, is wearing off and it’s losing its life with yours, and the moments it wears off permanently, you’ll… Well it’s bad, and you shouldn’t let that happen.” Fynn said.
“What? I don’t understand.” I said. I was completely lost. Isn’t it a good thing if the necklace is not imprinted to my life. Why would it be bad if it wears off permanently.
