Song: Dua Lipa - New Rules

Elena's POV:

I haven't seen Jake after last week's dinner. I stayed busy in completing my college assignments and tried not to recall his words that he whispered in my ear before leaving.

But here I was thinking about him and his words "Princess, you're playing with fire". I felt a shudder ran through my body and I closed my eyes. He was always pushing through my walls that I construct around my mind to stop myself from going crazy. I couldn't stop thinking about him. It was so easy not think about him when he wasn't here. I was trying to push my feelings back because he was happy with Hanna. She was the girl he wanted in his life, not me. She was the one he cherished and felt connected. Now, my stupid mind knows that she's not here anymore and I can be with the man I loved from afar.

I feel so alive around him. He brings out my seductive side and when his eyes follow me, I feel attractive and daring. His stupid sly smirk makes me crazy. My mind forces me to think that there is some kind of connection between us and he feels something for me too.

Suddenly, I felt pain in my back and turned around to see Anna and Sharon laughing. I looked down and saw my favorite book 'Ugly Love' was on the floor. I leaned down and picked it up, then put it on the study table and turned my chair to face them.

Anna was lying on my bed with her cellphone in her hand and Sharon was sitting on the recliner on the side of the room with her iPad on her lap.

"What was that for?" I asked them.

Anna made a face then sat up.

"You've been sitting their editing pictures on your laptop for last hour and I'm bored. After spending last two weeks working on all the assignments and studying has turned my mind numb. I want to do something fun". She said.

Sharon and I looked at each other and raised our eyebrows in a mocking way.

"Where is boyfriend? Call him and go out". I said.

She made a noise in irritation and got up from the bed.

"I don't want to go out with him today. I want my girls. Let's plan a girls' night out". She said, looking at us expectantly.

Anna was the only one who has a boyfriend. Sharon stayed in short relationships with few boys but they didn't last long because of her tough schedule. Anna and I have been friends from preschool and we meet Sharon in high school when she transferred in our school from England.

My both friends are beautiful; Anna has auburn color hair and black eyes, her height is 1.56 m and she is a daughter of one of my dad's business partner. She is strong, bold and confident and doesn't give shit what anyone thinks about her. Sharon on the other hand is completely different story; she is a beauty diva and struggling to make her name in professional modeling. Her main concerns are always about how she looks and what's going in the modeling industry. Anna and I believe that Sharon has been blessed with sharp features and 1.77 m height which is her bonus point if she wants to be a model. But she is not confident about her looks and weight, even though she has perfect weight and beautiful face. She has brown hair which is straight, long and her blue-green eyes on her oval face makes her look more beautiful.

"Elena, are you still here with me?" She asked.

I looked at her and frowned.

"You didn't hear a word that I said". She said throwing her hands up in irritation.

"Um, I'm sorry I was recalling again why we are friends". I said to her.

"We are your friends because we fill excitement in your boring life". She said.
