Short story just because I am bored

Leo and Scarlett was the perfect couple everyone knew. They meet in high school. They spend most of their lunch time together, sharing lunch and laughing with friends. Their senior year flew by with their love for each other growing stronger. Leo knew the only girl he wanted to ask to the prom was Scarlett. They went shopping together, had matching attires. Leo gave Scarlett the most beautiful corsage. Although they didn’t win prom King and Queen, they knew their love will not fade.

They planned to spend the summer together at least for the time Scarlett was in town. For a month Scarlett went traveling by herself. However the time apart did not break them.

First day of university, they were both very excited. Although Scarlett was studying in a different city, Leo knew the distance was not going to stop him from visiting her. Leo visited her whenever he has the time. Scarlett visited him whenever he was sick. She cleaned his room and folded clothes. They can live together with harmony. Sure, there was bickering, but they work it out.

On Valentine’s Day, Leo took Scarlett skating. She was not exactly the best skater in town, but it gave her an excuse to cling onto Leo’s arm. Scarlett gave Leo a gift, which he held onto for the whole day. After lunch, Leo told Scarlett that he was tired and needed some rest. So Scarlett thought that the day was good enough for her and suggested that they part their ways. However, Leo insisted that they stay. He just needed to have a nap for a few minutes because he did not get enough sleep last night. She took him to a bookstore and she let him lie on her lab while she reads. Two hours he slept and Scarlett started to become impatient. She started to get upset that Leo would fell asleep on their date.

Leo thought Scarlett was being inconsiderate of his physical needs. So he got mad and gave the gift that Scarlett has given him back. As soon as the gift has landed on Scarlett’s hand, anger swoops in and Scarlett knew she had to get off the street car to cool off. As soon as Scarlett left the situation, Leo’s anger swoops in, “How could she just leave?” thought Leo. He got off the street car with Scarlett and followed her closely. Scarlett was already a block down the street. She noticed him and yelled at him. Leo started to yell back. The argument got so heated up that Scarlett threw the gift to the right side of Leo without really thinking. Leo witnessed that and took a few steps back and said, “I am done with you, I can’t take this.” Leo started to walk away.

Scarlett evaluated the situation in her head for a few minutes and thought this whole thing was not worth it and it really was not necessary and that she should just apologize. Scarlett chased after Leo and got onto the street car with him. Scarlett apologized the whole way home for 45 minutes, even missed her stop. Leo was so angry that he couldn’t listen to her.

Leo waited for his bus in silent while Scarlett continued to apologize. At this point hot tears were already streaming down Scarlett’s cheeks. Leo jump onto his bus and Scarlett yelled, “Are you serious?” outside with the bus door in between them. Leo replied with a nod.

Heartbroken, Scarlett walked home by herself, crying like a mess. It was the longest 15 minutes walk she had ever walked…

If anyone is interested in the story, let me know. I will continue to write it.
