Ethan's POV
After practice, I couldn't help but laugh remembering the crazy night and morning I have had...For once in a while I was excited to go home....

It actually took me by surprise that she didn't recognise me..I can finally be friends with someone who doesn't care about my status....

How can a girl be weird, funny and crazy at the same time???? Arya Almasi you are something you know....

"Why are you so happy bro???" Jack my bestfriend squeezed my shoulder....
"What??? I am just happy..." I looked away embarassingly...
"Who is she???? Another one night stand I don't know about..." He looked at me curiously...

"It's none of your business...." I replied dryly...
"Since when don't you tell me about your one night stands..."

"See you tomorrow guys, practice is over..." Coach Weiner shouted and we all cheered before dispersing to the changing room....

"No, I have to know what's making you happy...It's been a while since I saw you smile...Since Ivy went to California one month ago, you have been gloomy..."

"I am just happy...No one night stand, no nothing...." I said in almost a loud whisper and walked past him to the changing rooms....

I quickly took a warm shower and changed into a pair of blue skinny jeans and a white t-shirt....

"Hey Marcias, don't feel like a hero just because you scored a one goal in Tanzania..." Ian shouted behind me...

I never understand why Ian doesn't want to move on from the past...Ivy chose me.

He should put on his man pants and stop acting like a moody angry little girl...

I turned around to face him and faked a smile,"Ian just get over it...Ivy is my girl and the sooner you understand that, the better..."

"You stole her from me Marcias, you bought her love with your stupid money and status." He cussed out...

"Ian Kiposa, bought or not she is mine..." I winked at him and smiled evilly....

He charged  to where I was standing and pushing me back but I only staggered...He was ready to pounce on me but his bestfriend George held him back...

"Ian you should stop being a chicken..."
"Marcias one of these days, I am going to hit where it hurts..."
"I will be waiting Kiposa....But don't be too confident..." I saluted him and left the changing room...

I really miss my Ivy, the world seems so dull without her....All I have with me is her scent on my bed and t-shirts....We chat almost everyday but it's different when she is beside me...

She has this way of making my life colourful and   beautiful..Not only was she beautiful but smart and confident too...When I started courting her, I didn't know Ian also wanted her...

I came to find out after we had gone for our vacation in Bahamas....I had already fallen in love with her and I couldn't imagine my life without her...I can't wait for her to come back, nothing feels the same...How can I be far away from someone that makes me feel complete....

Jack snapped his fingers on my face and dragged me back to reality...
"Lost in thoughts again???"
"I just miss Ivy....I wish she comes back soon..."
"We can go at your place and have some beer..." Jack suggested and I nodded when it dawned to me Arya is in my apartment...Sh*t, I almost forgot....

"I remembered I have to go home, my mum wants to see me...Next time bro..."

Before he could say anything, I begun walking away....

I passed over the grocery shop and supermarket  on my way home and did some shopping...I hope Arya is hanging in there alright and hasn't spent the whole afternoon crying over her ex...

When I walked into the apartment, it was silent....I placed the shopping on the kitchen counter and walked to the living room where I saw the pizza box was still full....

My white t-shirt she had on was lying on the floor...I ran to her room and she wasn't there...
How could she leave without telling me??? I looked around for a goodbye note but nothing...

I walked angrily towards the door when I stepped on one of her heels...Ouch!!!
If her heels are here then where did she go?

I didn't give her the spare key and the door was locked...Or did she jump from the balcony???

"Calm down Ethan, you live on the tenth floor...No person in her right mind would jump." My subconscious mind laughed at me...

I reached for my phone ready to call her when I remembered I don't have her number...Just great, this girl wants to kill me with worry...

I walked into my bedroom and heard some music playing in the bathroom...
I ran into the bathroom and found her asleep in the bathtub...She had a bottle of red wine in a hand and her phone was lying on the floor...

I slowly took the bottle of wine from her hand and placed it on the floor...
"Arya????" I shook her lightly but she didn't respond...
I felt her pulse and sighed...She was still breathing...

Thanks heavens I arrived home early today or else she would have drowned in the bathtub...

I took her in my arms from the bathtub and realised she was naked....Sweet heavens what kind of temptations are these????

I carried her carefully to her room and dried her up....I later put her tiny body in a bathrobe and covered her up in a duvet....

She looks so broken and hurt in her sleep....

I stood from the bed ready to leave when she held my hand, "Pascal please don't leave...I love you so much..." Tears begun to roll down her cheeks...

Poor thing!!!!
"Arya wake up its Amy..." I shook her lightly....
"Don't leave me Pascal, please..." She freed my hand and got back to sleep....

"Sleep peaceful dear one..." I pressed a kiss on her forehead and left....

I was busy cleaning the mess in my bathroom when her phone begun ringing....
First I ignored it thinking it wasn't important until it rang again....

I checked who it was and  Pascal was the name on the screen...
Arya doesn't deserve a guy that puts tears in her eyes....

I sighed and composed myself before picking up the call, "Hello Arya is asleep..." And I disconnected the call...

I know Arya is going to kill me when she wakes up....
Just when I was about to place the phone on the sink, it pinged with a message...

Pascal
You are a sl*t Arya...We just broke up yesterday and you are going out with another man..

I felt anger bubbling inside me that I could explode..How can he call her a sl*t???Does he know the tears she has shed because of him...I won't spare him...

I dialled his number and cursed him as I waited for that jerk to answer the call....

"Don't be a coward...You don't dump a girl and then call her a sl*t..." I scolded him the moment he said hello....
"And who are you????" I could sense anger in his tone...
"If you can't keep her happy then stop calling...."

"Amy who are you talking to on my phone????" Arya asked behind me...
