Don't Tell Anyone We Kissed (Book 1) - COMPLETED
Author: Hatewish

Chapter 27
Everything you want.






I did my homework, reviewed for a test that isn’t until next week, and cleaned up my room. And yet, sleep didn’t even bother to visit. But I was exhausted, so exhausted... For some reason my parents were still watching T.V on the living room, and I couldn’t even go to Ethan’s room. But... Not like I wanted to right now.

Maybe having myself as a friend wouldn’t be so bad for tonight, and maybe, just maybe, I could sort things out properly if I try.

I listened to Everything you want by Vertical Horizon in my iPod as I stared blankly at the ceiling, trying to clear my head with anything else for good 3 minutes or so before I start killing myself with my issues.


Somewhere there's speaking

It's already coming in

Oh and it's rising at the back of your mind

You never could get it

Unless you were fed it

Now you're here and you don't know why


But under skinned knees and the skid marks

Past the places where you used to learn

You howl and listen

Listen and wait for the

Echoes of angels who won't return

He's everything you want

He's everything you need

He's everything inside of you

That you wish you could be

He says all the right things

At exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you

And you don't know why


You're waiting for someone

To put you together

You're waiting for someone to push you away

There's always another wound to discover

There's always something more you wish he'd say


But you'll just sit tight

And watch it unwind

It's only what you're asking for

And you'll be just fine

With all of your time

It's only what you're waiting for


Out of the island

Into the highway

Past the places where you might have turned

You never did notice

But you still hide away

The anger of angels who won't return


I am everything you want

I am everything you need

I am everything inside of you

That you wish you could be

I say all the right things

At exactly the right time

But I mean nothing to you and I don't know why


            The image of Irvine’s pained face flashed in my mind, and once again my tears were trying to break free from my heart’s prison cell.

            He was the one who downloaded this song on my iPod; he kept bugging me about listening to it, on how he really loved this song, and how it reminded him of someone. That someone isn’t me, so why would I bother! was the same argument that I replied almost every time.

            I pulled my pink ear buds off my ear and tossed my iPod at the foot of my bed.

            A lot of things happened today.  

            Today, I felt like I’ve lost my only best friend...

            And today, I committed myself to a very difficult promise.

            Or rather, it wasn’t at all difficult to make, the only hard part would be... Is when the whole world dares you to break it and you try your best to hold on...

            I remembered the piece of paper that I pocketed this afternoon, so I fumbled for the jeans that I wore earlier.

            It had something written on it, but there were no indications on who it was from, or who it was for. Even though it was intentionally slid inside my locker, I just couldn’t be so sure.

            I couldn’t recognize the handwriting either, it was on all-caps; it looked like it was carefully written, like every stroke of the letter took a minute to be done though it was just written on a piece of paper torn in a notebook.

            But anyway, I just read it, it said:


            I sat on the floor next to my bed. “You...” I closed my eyes, causing my tears to come rolling down my cheeks. “Why do you blame your sadness on me...?”










A/N: For those who were wondering, I edited this image through Adobe Photoshop CS3.

As for the images that I used, credits to:

Dusk Over Moulden Hill Pond (The dock) by GazzaJagman

Floating Fire (The floating pink candle) by *photographer

Candles (The candles inside the jars) by dorothyandersendoyle

Sunset (The orange/pink/blue hue in the whole photo) by AntiSpy

&& especially to my favorite couple,

We're only speechless now (Image of Ethan& Lexi) by indiechild19



Their individual works inspired me for that chapter, I just put them together to

make EthanxLexi's date look--I dunno, dreamy? Romantic? Idk. :)


* The images I've been using for the [ IMAGE ] chapters were also edited by

Adobe. Some contained 2-4 different images that were put together to capture the

essence of the quote / character / scene.




I posted it again here on this chapter, because I'm pretty sure you wouldn't bother reading the previous one again. So there, :) Happy reading ~
