Who knew that once he had the chance to confess his feelings for her, he would have this hard of a time?
He opened his mouth to start the speech he had planned for earlier that day, but his mouth was too dry to get the words out."Well I'm glad you stopped by," Elle started, and Emmett sighed a breath of relief that she was able to break the silence.
She smiled at the irony: she was finally getting what she came here for and she had no want of it!
Elle's eyes flew open, realizing her phone was somewhere on the bathroom floor, notifying her she was getting a text. He may not have been the most experienced when it came to women, but he wasn't crazy when he felt a connection between them., he thought bitterly. Emmett was about to kiss Elle for god's sake, when Warner appeared, ready to sweep Elle away.
She had soaked for another couple minutes in the tub before she decided it wasn't making her feel better. She had no intention of leaving her dorm that night, although as predicted, she received texts from the Delta Nu girls telling her she was missing out on a pretty killer party at the local bar celebrating Brooke's freedom. He looked as handsome as ever, albeit a little out of breath."Emmett! Elle suddenly felt very aware she was standing in the doorway in a robe, her hair piled on top of her head, looking like a complete mess.
"Erm, sorry" she mumbled, looking down at her attire, "I was only expecting a pizza guy."Emmett broke out into a huge smile.
This wasn't the first time he had been in her room, but the realization of his purpose here at the moment made him start to get nervous. " she asked, picking up the remote to turn the TV off.
Emmett adjusted his tie, the silk cloth suddenly choking him.
