A/N : Okay, so this is my first story, and I was a little nervous to start it. Oh and I made a few changes with the characters. I hope you enjoy it :)

It was Saturday, 4.15 pm. My group of friends and I decided to meet up at a coffee shop before we go to Diana's house for a sleepover. Our group consists of 8 people. We've been friends for years now.

We sat at a round table, talking and joking and laughing. I sat next to Seamus and Vicky. Seamus was on my right side and Vicky on the left. She was in the middle of a heated discussion with Rhonda about their softball team, and I didn't have any interest to join their conversation. So, I just sipped my coffee and listened to whatever music was playing on my iPod. I didn't really pay much attention to what the other were talking about since my mind was preoccupied with another thought.

I was thinking about him. I didn't know why. Maybe because he was sitting right next to me? No, it couldn't be because of that-although it contributed a bit. Or maybe it was because he just broke up with his girlfriend two weeks ago? Yeah, maybe. Then what? It wasn't like I suddenly have a chance, right? He's my best friend. I started to realize that I had feelings for him like a year ago. That was when he was still in a relationship with his girlfriend. But now, that he's single, I couldn't help myself to hope that he will finally see and notice me. I know I shouldn't let myself hope. I just know that he will never see me as more than his best friend.

He already knew that I like him though. It was because the stupid 'Truth or Truth' game Fred forced us to play 4 months ago.

"Okay, I pick Ruby." Fred smiled devilishly to me.

I gulped nervously.

"So, who is your crush at the moment?" he asked


"Uh, no one." I lied. I just couldn't tell that I like Seamus when he was still in a relationship with his girlfriend.

"Really? But you did have a crush yeah? Who was it? Tell the truth."


"I liked Seamus, but not anymore. The crush was already going away. Now, we're just friend, right Seam?" I lied again, because honestly I still have feelings for him.

Even until now, I still love him.

I shook my head, trying to get rid of the thoughts of him, and trying to just listened at the song that was playing on my iPod. But I got bored, so I turned it off and took out the earbuds. I looked up to my right to see Seamus.

He was thinking hard, about what I didn't know. His eyebrows was furrowed, his sandy brown hair was messy like usual, his hand was playing absentmindedly with his half-empty cup of coffee, his piercing blue eyes was hard. It was clear that he was thinking about something.

But I had an idea about what he was thinking, maybe he was thinking about his ex-girlfriend and that he regretted breaking up with her. That thought pained me.

Suddenly he sighed and then turned to look at me. Oh just great! Now he caught me staring at him. But then, he smiled at me. Without warning, my heart began to beat faster.

He was still smiling at me, so I smiled back to him.

"Like what you see, Ruby?" He teased me.

"Not really, you looked so deep in thought and confused. It wasn't a very nice view, you know?" I replied, playing along with him.

He sighed again and turned his face away from me, but he answered me anyway. "I don't know Ruby. You're right, I was thinking about something. I'm confused."

"Mhm, I noticed that Seam. Wanna tell me? What were you thinking about?"

"I could ask you the same question, you know." He replied.

I didn't reply, instead I took a sip of my coffee and plugged my earbuds on my ears again. There was no way I would tell him that I was thinking about him. But before I could plug the earbuds, I heard Seamus groaned.

"C'mon Ruby, what is it? I know you were thinking about something too before." He whined like a child.

"Not a chance, Reynolds. Sorry." I smiled a wicked smile at him.

"Tell me Brownwood." He demanded.

"Why must I tell you? You didn't tell me either."

Suddenly, he leaned closer to me. He stared right into my dull brown eyes and held my gaze. He was trying to make me tell him. And I knew, I would tell him in the end.

"Please." He spoke, so low that I wasn't quite sure if I heard it. His voice was so smooth yet it was so boyish. Then he flashed me his smile.

My mind went blank. All I could see was his eyes. I saw the sky there, his eyes were so bright and blue. I watched the emotions in his eyes, curiosity, mischief, confusion.

It became too much for me. I had to break the gaze, I needed to. I blinked once, twice, then I turned my gaze away from his eyes. Glad that now I was free from his gaze, I could answer him with an amount of sanity. I decided to tell him the truth. After all, friends can think about their friends, right?

"Well, I was thinking about you." I kept my voice low, still wasn't looking at him. Still, I couldn't help the blush that reached up my cheeks.

He was silent for a while, I figured he was startled by my response, but he quickly composed himself.

"You're blushing." He said.

"I know." I replied, still refused to look at him, instead I kept my eyes glued to my cup of coffee.

We were both silent. I could hear Andy scoffed at something Austin had said, I wasn't sure what that was about though.

"Ruby please, look at me." His tone was almost pleading.

Reluctantly, I looked up. And what I saw confused me. He was smiling. What in the world was he smiling for?

"I'm glad that you were thinking of me."

Now I was beyond confused.

"Why?" I asked him.

"Why what?"

"Why are you glad to know that I was thinking about you?"

"Because I was thinking about you too." He stated.

And I grinned back at him. I was beyond happy that he actually was thinking about me too.
