Loving With A Heavy Heart Chapter 94


93 Confession 1


Elle usually slept in on the weekends, but she was up bright and early one Saturday morning. She had agreed to spend a day out with Abby today since there was a rare break in the cold weather. Elle went about her usual morning routine; she lazed around in bed for a bit before getting up to shower and have breakfast. Afterwards she took some time to work on her writing. As with everything else, her writing had stabilized a lot in the new year. Her work, her relationship, even her writing, everything in her life felt so stable and constant at the moment.

Just before noon Elle changed into a pair of comfortable black leggings and an oversized sweater before heading out to meet Abby. The girls had decided to go watch a popular romantic comedy that had come out recently.

Afterwards they went to a nearby bubble tea caf.

"So what did you think?" Abby asked excitedly.

"It was good, but it wasn't as funny as the trailer made it seem." Elle replied.

"I know what you mean. The ending also seemed a bit forced."

"You know what seemed really good? The trailer for that thriller movie they showed."

"I know right!" Abby exclaimed dramatically.

The more they discussed the more they decided they'd rather go see this movie instead. Elle glanced at her watch. "You know it's still quite early"

"Should we?"

A grin spread across Elle's face as she pulled out her phone to check the movie times. "There's a showing in half an hour."

"Perfect."

On impulse the two girls went to see the second movie. Afterwards they went out for dinner.

"That was so good!" Elle said as they shared a meal together.

"I agree! Much better than the first film."

"It actually had a really good twist to the movie too, it's always the boyfriend. You can never trust men." Elle teased.

"Ah," Abby looked down shyly at her plate. The motion didn't go unnoticed by Elle.

"What is it?" Elle asked.

Abby hesitated for a moment before looking up at Elle with a smile in her eyes.

"You're creeping me out." Elle laughed. "What is it?"

"Well you see, I'm actually seeing someone right now."

This was a surprise indeed. Abby had a history of short lived relationship's. She didn't take love lightly, but the problem was that she fell in love easily. She always seemed to feel there was more there then her partner did.

Looking at the grin on her friend's face Elle couldn't help but feel happy for her. "You've only been back for two months and you've already found someone? You're so confident, I'm jealous." Elle teased. "Tell me about him."

Abby's smile faltered. "Actually, you already know him."

"Do I? Someone we went to school with?" Elle asked without looking up from her food.

"It's Jacob." Elle's fork clattered as it fell against her plate. She looked up with wide eyes. "I'm dating Jacob." Abby said firmly.
