JUST US 👫 ✨
(Do you believe?)
BY RUTHIE LEE 🌸 🌸
It was Saturday morning, No alarm to wake me up but I woke up at the exact time my alarm would wake me up.
I got down from my bed and immediately made it to the bathroom.
Brushing my teeth and staring at myself in the square mirror in front of my eyes, all I think of is how far Fynn and I have come.
Well it’s just yesterday we started going out but, I feel like it’s since forever.
Like who would have thought I’d ever date someone in this stupid life. I’ve always been an anti-social and daddy’s little girl. I don’t really talk or want to talk to anyone. And now I’m dating well to be precise Fynn isn’t a normal human being, he’s a magical being, but who cares, normal is so boring.
I took my bath happily and the warm water from the shower seemed to be warmer than ever.
I dried my body, applied lotion and put on my clothes, just as I made it to the door, about to open it, it opened and Jane walked in.
“Hey. I made breakfast!” she smiled.
“Oh really, thanks.” I replied and she looked around my room.
“What are you looking for?” I asked looking around to see if my eyes could get what she was looking for.
“Fynn!” she said without hesitation.
“What? Why would Fynn be here?” I asked nervously.
“Oh you’re asking that? I don’t know, maybe because you two are going out and maybe it’s because I walked into your room at 2am in the morning to see Fynn still here. So how is it not possible he might be here!” Jane said.
I laughed nervously. “Well let’s go before breakfast gets cold.”
I pushed Jane outside and followed her too closing the door behind us.
Well it is true that Fynn came at my house yesterday, after spending half of the day at his. I can’t remember what we talked about though, it’s funny how we can’t get enough of each other.
Jane joined me on the dinning table. Placing the plate of bacon beside me.
“So have you called Jen to come have breakfast!?” I asked.
“Yeah, she ignored me but I know she heard me she’ll be down in a few..” Jane said and I nodded.
We both started to eat without Jennifer and when I tasted the bacons
“You tasted it too right, there’s too much salt” she said nervously.
“Yeah… How… Come?” I was speechless for a while.
“Well I don’t know… but wait was I supposed to add salt in the bacons or was I…
And she gave a small pout
“You can’t blame me I don’t cook.”.
Jennifer joined the table with her phone in her hand. And starts to eat and just like we expected she yelled.
“Yeah yeah it’s salty, I made it, just like you like it!” Jane said and Jennifer rolled her eyes.
“Just admit you’re bad at cooking”.
Jane smirked. “I admit, I am bad at cooking but, I am way better than you!”
“You wish.” Jennifer scoffed.
“Remember when mom and dad went on a business
“But I’m still prettier than you.!” Jennifer suddenly said.
“Wow.” Jane laughed. “you’re such a child.”
I smiled as I watched the girls bickered at each other.
Jennifer suddenly turned to me.
“Now honestly, Bella look at me and now look at Jane, who’s prettier?” she asked placing her hand under her chin.
“Seriously Jennifer.” Jane rolled her eyes pretending not to care, but the glance she threw at me made me know she was actually curious.
“Okay honestly, the prettiest is… Janeiffer” I said with a laugh.
“What the hell?” Jennifer expression changed.
“Was that supposed to be the combination of our names?” Jane asked.
“Yeah cause. I can’t really pick who’s pretty. Cause you’re both pretty in your own way!” I tell him.
“Ugh those cliche words make me cringe” Jennifer said.
Jane rolled her eyes at her sister and the three of us continued to eat without saying a word.
We were all done with breakfast and Jane did the dishes, I always did the dishes.
Jennifer seemed happy and hyperactive today, well Saturdays are always filled with energetic spirits.
I got back to my room and immediately saw my phone blinking, it blinks when I’ve missed a call.
I ran up to my phone which was laying on the drawer beside my bed and picked up to see who would call me.
When suddenly a hand circled around my waist.
“Fynn” I called and he laughed.
“Seriously?” I rolled my eyes as I dropped my phone.
Fynn spun me around and smiled when we had to look at each other face to face.
“Wow.” escaped my lips, I don’t know but I think he’s getting prettier everyday.
“What?” he asked.
“Nothing!” I gave him a small hug.
“So… I Have something to tell you.!” Fynn said gently pushing me away from his body and directing my body to my bed and helped me sit.
“Something to tell me?” I said as I adjusted my body on the bed to be comfortable.
“Okay so this may sound… I don’t know, but Jojo and I found a way, to take that necklace off you!” Fynn blurted.
“Off me? I don’t understand”.
“Okay you know how the necklace is enchanted and how it has linked your life to yours and also gave you the special ability to heal faster but also an end to your life if you take it off!” Fynn said and I nodded, I mean how could I forget that from this necklace which has put me through a lot.
“Well I didn’t know the solution to it, was if I just spilled my blood on it like you did. It will be linked to me and not you!” Fynn explained and my jaw dropped.
“Really? Like! That’s it? And I’ve been here thinking I’ll lose my life to a necklace.!” I scoffed. Well happily.
“That’s it! If I just make my blood lay on that crystal you’ll be free, no more healing no more linked life.” Fynn explained happily seeing me happily.
I sighed. “Okay so this is great news but somehow I don’t want you to.”
“What why?” Fynn was surprised.
“Cause, somehow I feel very close to you with this necklace on me and I’m feeling like If I take it off now I won’t be connected to you!” I explained and fynn’s eyes wouldn’t leave mine as he held up the most proudest smile ever.
“Can I kiss you?” he asked dumbly.
“Now back to the necklace!” I quickly changed the subject and he laughed hysterically.
“You’ve been pestering me about how you want this necklace out of your life but now you want them to stay?” his smile was gorgeous.
Honestly Fynn doesn’t look very humanlike,
He looks like… Something, or someone that should exist in heaven.
And I can’t believe he’s my boyfriend.
“Okay look, the necklace can stay with me for a while and maybe soon you can finally take it away from me.” I sighed.
“Okay i can’t believe your hope is filled in this necklace, cause no matter what, necklace or no necklace, we’re still connected.” Fynn said those beautiful words into my head and gently kissed my lips.
I smiled against his lips and pushed him back a little.
“Fynn?” I called and his eyes looked at me curiously. “what?” he asked.
I laughed. “Okay so this may sound ear breaking but since whenever did you become so romantic with words? I knew when I first met you, you were as dumb as my ceiling fan.” I teased.
“Wow. That is one big insult there.” he laughed.
“I could have said no offence but it’s the truth.” I nodded at him and he bit his lips and smiled.
“You know sometimes, we don’t understand what we can do or say unless we meet the right person, this words just comes out from my head and I’m serious Bella, your face says a lot that I’m still not able to decipher” Fynn said making my face heat up, he really does have a way with words.
“Well thanks.” I said shyly.
“Thanks for what?” he asked.
“For…” I sighed. “nothing” when I realised he was about to tease me.
Well Fynn and I spent the day like every other days, being obsessed with each other.
He had lunch with Jane and I. And so with dinner.
During nighttime I went over to his place, spent almost half of the night there before coming home and getting under my covers. It was like my life finally turned right side up, who would have thought my aunt would like or noticed me or who would have thought I’d get along with my sister. And lastly who would have thought I’d get along with Fynn and also be in a relationship with him.
I woke up to the sound of my alarm, and my head calculated before opening my eyes. Why would my alarm ring on a sunday.
I opened my eyes and was shocked when I realized this wasn’t my room.
I quickly sat up and looked around.
Wait this isn’t my room.
I looked around again, but it’s also my room.
I was confused, supper confused.
The door to the room… My room opened and my dad walked in.
“Morning sunshine.” he said as he bite on the banana he was holding on one of his hand.
“Dad?” I called, befuddled.
He studied my bewildered face and let out that amazing smile that I missed.
“Oh Right, sorry, I couldn’t wait for the mail man to drop it in the mail box, I had to take it from him and bring it to you here!” my dad smiled, and wiggled the bunch of papers he held in the other hand.
Fynn was the first person that came to my mind.
“So here, open it!” my dad said and dropped a white envelope in front of me. “I know you’d get in, but let’s just see sometimes some universities buy the wrong computer.” my dad said nervously and as I looked down at the envelope to see a familiar diagram, I suddenly remembered telling my dad yesterday about the type of bed i want if I get into college.
I remembered a whole lot more, before I could put down my head, I made sure I gave my dad a warm hug before sitting back on my bed. I mean I missed him. He died.!
“So open it!” my dad said referring to the envelope, I opened the envelope and I as I opened it, I remembered when I was filling an application to get Into one of the best school in town, and my heart melted when my dad said. “Come on hurry, did you get in.”
I looked at the papers and like expected, I got the admission, and into one of the best universities.
“I got in!!” I yelled happily.
“Now that’s my girls!” my dad rejoiced and kissed my forehead.
We both heard noises from outside my window and looked down to see a moving truck and people moving things into the house close to ours.
“Oh looks like we got ourselves some new neighbors.! Anyways honey go get ready and come downstairs for breakfast!” my dad said and walked out of my room.
I paused and looked around. Like it was strange how my head was fixated on how my dad didn’t die. He never died.!
And then suddenly it hit me.!!
It was all a dream!.
No it can’t be, how can a dream be so real? How can it be so real. I remembered everything so well like it happened, from when my dad died and how my life turned into Cinderella’s living in my aunt’s place.
What the hell.
A dream. All those dream, for just one night.
And it felt so…
I almost cried as I made it out of the door and slowly down the stairs.
Somehow I was disappointed it was a dream.
The word “dream” still hurts so bad.
I made it down the familiar stairs of my house and I remembered everyday I spent here like it was yesterday.
I met my dad in the living room and he pointed to the dinning table.
Just as I was about to go we heard a knock from the door.
“Don’t worry go have your breakfast, I’ll answer the door.” my dad said and I nodded.
My dad answered the door while I picked up the buttered bread beside my tea.
I didn’t feel hungry but still I had to eat, I took one sandwich buttered bread and as I took a bite, I head to the door to see who my dad was talking to.
I Froze when I saw Fynn standing at the door. He looked more taller and more masculine. His hair was longer, he was still attractive but still not up to the Fynn I know.
“Oh Mr George you didn’t tell me you had a daughter.”
My dad turned to me and then back at him.
“Oh sorry, this is my daughter Bella!” my dad smiled.
“Hey there Bella.” Fynn… No The guy standing in front of my door, said to me with a smile and a little wink.
My dad expression changed with the guys sudden wink. “HI” I said taking his hand that was waiting for a handshake.
“I’m Flynn by the way” He introduced.
Flynn,!! You’ve got to be kidding me.
That one was Fynn and this one is Flynn.
Flynn continued anyways, “We’re your new neighbors and we just came to say hi.”
I looked down to see a shy little boy standing behind Fynn… Sorry I mean Flynn.
“Oh this is my brother Joseph” Flynn smiled.
“He’s twelve, we call him Jojo for short” Flynn said and ruffled his brother’s hair.
Jojo? No way?
Why am I feeling so… discombobulated
My dream. Its like I saw everything in my dream, instead Jojo’s a real boy and I don’t think Flynn is magical, he looks like a high school, jock, at the same time, a flirt and a player.
He still looks like my Fynn but there’s still a slight difference. He’s more built.
Flynn told my dad and I he’d come visit next time and we should come over for his family house warming party tomorrow night. He winked at me before walking away.
“I don’t like him, he looks like girls magnet” my dad said making me laugh.
My dad and I both had breakfast together that morning just like we always used to.
“So anyways, I never really told you this but uhh. My sister had an accident” my dad broke out and I looked up at him.
“Yeah, your aunt Davina, she had an accident and she’s in a critical situation right now, I know she has always been a pain in my ass, she totally hates me but I love her, her dear husband is with her at the hospital so I’m going to be bringing her two daughters over. I never really told you about them well cause, your aunt doesn’t take me as her family, but anyways those girls are your cousin, what are their names. Yeah Jennifer and Jessica, yeah right those two are brats but since I’m loving they’d be staying with us till their mother gets better.” my dad expound leaving my jaw to drop.
I stayed in my room and looked out my window.
Different thoughts running in my head.
So this is my real life. I’ve been dreaming about Fynn. It’s not even real. It was like I saw my afterlife all in a dream at once. My dad who died in the room, is still alive and now the person who’s almost dying is my aunt and Jane and Jennifer will be coming over here instead of me going over there.
It’s like I saw everything in one goal.
As I looked out my window I wondered deeply, After all the bond Fynn and I have been through, it was just a dream.
So it means that I saw a future I had yet to approach. And besides magic isn’t real, that’s why it is one positive feeling that it’s a dream.
So that mean I’ll be with Flynn later on??
JUST US 👫 ✨
(Do you believe?)
BY RUTHIE LEE 🌸 🌸
Sadly I’ve been moving on with my life living like nothing had never happened, well nothing really happened except the way too much dream I had,
The dream about Fynn and Sophie everything has just been sad. But this is my real life and I have to face the reality that my life is really boring.
It’s been two weeks since my… well weird dream.
But I’m starting to get over the dream though, I mean it was just a dream. A dream that seemed too real. People have dreams like that all that and it’s just so painful when you wake up and see it not real.
Reality hurts sometimes.
But this… Well my dad has been like the best Dad of all. Doing all he can for me. My cousins has been staying with us and their mom is slowly making progress in the hospital she’s getting better.
The three of us has gotten real close during the past two weeks and we’ll they are exactly the Jane and Jennifer in my dream. But Jane is actually Jessica.
Looks like my dream did tell me some things and still left some other things out.
Well that’s just that.
This is my life, I have to live it.
On the other hand Flynn, who lives next door and looks exactly like my Fynn, got along with me and my cousins too. Sometimes without looking at him and just listening to his voice, I almost lost it thinking it was actually Fynn but when you look him in the eyes. He’s not the Fynn.
The Fynn in my dream has light glossy brown eyes, while Flynn has Hazel eyes and a tiny dimple under his lips when he laughs.
My dad didn’t like him that much at first, but now, I think they are inseparable, Flynn and Jojo… Joseph hangs around in our home like they own it and Jojo is just so sweet.
Jennifer and Jessica aren’t always home cause they’re always in school, they’re both in their final year, and Flynn and I would always be the ones hanging out, it wasn’t hard talking to him cause it was like talking to Fynn, they both had the same vibe, the same aura, the same voice, it was really like he was still there.
But the not so magical one. And this Flynn talks dirty too much.
They both tease, all the time.
It was Sunday evening, I was alone in my room rearranging my stuff for college. Yeah I got into one of the best college in town. And my dad has been so proud.
As I zipped the last bag of my stuff and placed it among the other luggage, I tired on my bed and sighed heavily.
Finally after two weeks of preparing, I’ll finally be a college student and well that’s a whole new world.
I heard a light knock on the door and sighed.
The door opened and Flynn walked in, just like I expected, he always shows up before my bed time.
Just like Fynn.
“What are you doing?” he asked looking around my room.
“What else would I be doing by now!” I retorted.
“Oh yeah, you’re a college that’s why you’re giving me that kind of attitude right?” he scoffed.
I just sighed in return and said nothing else.
“What’s wrong?” he asked.
“Nothing, just having college-phobia” I said and he laughed.
“What? That’s not a thing, and don’t worry you’ll do great, I know you.” Flynn said.
“You’ve known me for just two weeks, so you don’t really know me.” I smirked.
“Two weeks.? Then how come it feels longer?” he narrowed his eyes at me.
“Cause your brain is too weak to calculate the weeks we’ve spent knowing each other.” I rolled my eyes and he laughed… again
I’ve strangely Gotten so used to that laugh.
“Wow I can’t believe you calculated the days we spent knowing each other. Wait! Bella do you have a crush on me?” Fynn asked narrowing his eyes at me suspiciously.
“I can’t believe you’re at it again.” I scoffed. Honestly I think Flynn likes me and he’s not trying to hide it.
He laughed. “I was just joking with you.”.
“You always are, you are never serious” I shook my head negatively.
“That’s Flynn for you. Anyways your dad asked me to help you out with your stuff. So are you having problem with anything?” Flynn asked.
“No not really, I’m done packing, so you can leave.” I said.
“How rude of you, but I can’t, your daf asked me to stay for dinner” Flynn said.
“Okay whatever” I sighed.
Flynn sat on my bed beside me “Looks like your body Is still going on about this college-phobia, but don’t worry I have something to cheer you up” Flynn said as he poked my nose with his index finger.
Well I am a little down and nervous.
And so bored.
“Okay what have you got,?” I asked.
“let’s play truth or dare.!” he smiled.
You’ve got to be kidding me.
“No thank you” I said as I lay on my bed.
He sighed. “Come on, it’s a fun game, or you don’t know how to play, don’t worry I’ll teach ya” Flynn smiled.
I look him in the eye as I sat up and blurted.
“I know how to play but I don’t want to play” I tell him,
I got down from my bed and made it to the door.
“Hey where are you going?” he asked.
“To take a walk, I need fresh air, my mind is actually clouded right now.” I replied.
“Mind if I join you?” He asked.
“Sure” I don’t mind at all
We both made it down to the living room and then saw my dad, he asked us where we were headed and we told him and left.
Flynn and I walked down the quiet street, we were only three blocks away from our houses when I asked.
“Hey Flynn, do you believe in magic?”.
“Uh… i don’t know, do you?” he threw back the question.
“I don’t know either.” I giggled nervously.
“Then why did you ask me.” he laughed.
“I have no idea too.” I said shaking my head at myself.
“Well honestly… I think everyone should believe in magic, cause I think magic isn’t just when you flick a wand or say abracadabra, I think magic is everywhere around us. I mean when we watch the sun set, isn’t that always beautiful and magical to watch. When the sun shines after a rainy day, isn’t that magical, how oceans creates waves, how moon light gives the water beautiful tides at night, isn’t all that magical, that is magical enough for me.” Flynn explained.
And wow. This is the first time I’ll say he’s making sense.
Cause all he does is talks naughty or dirty or teases me. And now what he just said is the most beautiful thing ever. And that’s not the kind of magic I’m talking about
“And what’s the most magical, i think that’s when he dream, a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during our time of sleep it’s like an idea or a vision that is created in your imagination and that is not real, but then it feels so real, it’s like it’s actually happening, I had a dream recently and damn that dream is… Is Just out of this world, it felt so real, it felt like it was my life, and this life didn’t exist, I know it sounds weird but I’m serious, Oh you should have seen my face when I woke up.” Fynn said and laughed at himself
But I was lost. He had a dream and it felt so real to him that he thought the life he’s living now isn’t his real one?
I’ll be damned.
I turned to Flynn.
“A dream? What’s it about?” I asked.
“Well about me, what else, but I don’t like to talk about that dream.” he shook his.
“Why?” I asked.
“Cause it was stupid and a waste of my night” He said, pained.
“But you said dreams are magical. And gave example of the one you had last, so how would something magical be so painful, I thought magical means felicity.!” I expound and he sighed.
“Well it was worth being called magical cause, it was just… I don’t know it felt too real, look I don’t like talking about this dream.” he rolled his eyes.
I was starting to have a weird feeling.
“Okay I understand you, but now you’re making me get really curious about this dream, can you just tell me at least one person in this dream of yours?” I asked playfully to get him to smile, but instead he sighed and stopped walking and so did I.
“You. You were in my dream, it’s strange right, I don’t even know who you were, I’ve never even met you before but suddenly I saw you in my dream, it was strange and you were called belle which awkwardly rhymes with Bella. I know this sound awkward but it’s the truth. ” Flynn shrugged.
“it doesn’t sound awkward, to be frank, I also had a dream like that too.” I poured out.
“A dream like that?” he repeated.
“Yeah, you were there! You were called Fynn instead of Flynn” i said out loud. “You don’t mean it.” Flynn gave me a look like I was saying gibberish.
“I’m not joking Flynn.” I rolled my eyes.
“Okay… I’m not saying you are, and I think your cousins were there two and this other girl who I don’t know, Stephanie…? No No that’s not the name.” Flynn said trying to think.
“Wait. Sophie?” I helped me and he looked at me as his jaw dropped.
“What the fvck.!” he blurted out. “Okay this is sick.! So are you trying to say we both had the same dream? With the same people?” He was seriously shocked judging by his expression.
And honestly I was too.
“I think so,” I said and he scoffed.
So Flynn started to ask me questions about my dream and when I answer them, he runs his hands through his hair and yells “damn”
And it was shocking we’ve both had the same dream, everyone was the same. He said I had lived with my aunt and his brother was surprisingly his familiar, which was a magical dog and I was just speechless.
This seems more than magical to me.
Flynn sat at the edge of my bed while I stood beside my window.
“Okay this has been a day, God I didn’t know… Like… Like this is just surprising to me, how is it even possible for two different people to have the same dream with the same people in it. The only difference was the way we called our own names and it’s a very slight difference.” Flynn said with wonders still on his eyes.
“This is just paranormal” I said.
He looked up at me.
“Like I just can’t believe I’m looking at the pretty Belle in my dreams, just that the dream one is way prettier” He said making me roll my eyes.
Like he should see the Fynn I dated. That one was to die for.
“But I’d date either Belle or Bella. Both are a spec” Flynn said and I rolled my eyes.
“Anyways” Flynn turned to me. “So if you’re the Belle in my dreams, then you remember everything we had right?”
Everything we had.
“What are you trying to say?” I looked at him suspiciously.
“I’m just saying we need to–
My dad opened the door.
Flynn sighed hating the interruption but he didn’t say anything.
“Eat more than you’ve ever eaten. Tomorrow you’ll be leaving my house you won’t have to eat like this anymore.” my dad said.
“Just because she’s being a college freshman doesn’t mean she’s going to die uncle, give it a break.” Jessica… Well Jane. Chimed in and my dad laughed.
“We’re all going to miss you though” Jennifer said.
“Yeah especially Flynn.” my dad teased.
“No I’m not” Flynn smirked.
“Yes you are.” Jessica said.
“I’m going back to school tomorrow too.” Flynn said.
“It’s not like it’s the same college as Bella’s” Jessica rolled her eyes.
“Well it is.” Flynn smiled.
“What?” I looked at him.
“You didn’t tell me you school at the school I got admitted into.” I said surprised.
“I didn’t? I thought I did, and I’m leaving tomorrow, I’m actually in my second year though” Flynn smiled.
“Wow you’re really full of stupid surprises” Jessica said.
“Thanks Jessica.” Flynn said and ruffled her hair but she wiped his hand wishing it would leave his body…
So he and I goes to the same school…
After dinner I retired back to my room and Flynn followed me.
He’s just like Fynn. Well he is Fynn. Is he? I don’t know. They’re both just…
“So looks like we’ll be taking the same bus tomorrow” Flynn smiled sitting beside me.
“Aren’t you going to go home. Its late.” I reminded him.
“My house is just next door, I can walk out the window and get in my room, no biggie” Flynn said.
I laid on my bed and Flynn sat beside me.
“Bella.” he called.
“What?” I said with my eyes closed.
“Let’s date.” He poured out immediately.
“Wow.!” I said. “That is no way to propose to a girl.” I stated.
Well his word did caught me off guard, I’m just putting on a brave act.
“Sorry. I’m not the romantic type.” he chuckled.
“Well Fynn is.” I teased.
“Well Fynn is me so, we’re technically the same person.” he retorted and I laughed.
“Okay so, why do you want to date me?” the question came out on it’s own.
“Can’t believe you’re asking that, but, one. You’re pretty, friendly, and the only girl who tells me my mouth dimple is stupid and doesn’t suit me.” Flynn stated and I laughed. Hard this time.
“Okay… sincerely I didn’t mean that” I primped.
“I know you didn’t.” he smiled.
“And besides were both attending the same college and they’ll be a lot of their dude there, so I can’t lose you to anyone.” He said and I gave him a long stare before sighing.
Well I like him too. Either him being Flynn or Fynn. He’s pretty sensitive and nice.
“So should we Mark our dating with a kiss?” Flynn asked shyly.
Wow he talks naughty all the time, but still get shy just with the thought of kissing me.
I rolled my eyes at him and we both kissed.
I mean it’s like it had been a strange between us. Having the same dream and all, I know there is no way, no natural way to explain about our dreams but I am sure that we were meant to be.
