M e y | 1: Three Unforgivable Curses

1DNarry4ever [jess]: does anyone see Autumn? I couldn't find her.

I frowned as I typed down my reply in our group chat, A Gaggle of Giggles.

AsianPotterhead: I'll go look for her.

I glanced up at Hunter, realizing that he has been looking at me the whole time. "Hey, it's really nice to meet you but I have to find my friend."

"Let me help you, " he offered.

I wasn't sure if that was a good idea but desperate times calls for desperate measure and four hands were better than two, so I answered him with a nod.

I've looked around the living room, kitchen, backyard, yet there was no sign of Autumn anywhere. "Where is she?!" I shouted at no one out of frustration.

"Is her name Autumn?" asked Hunter as he tapped my shoulder lightly. We were outside Leah's house, sitting on the porch after running around the house searching for Autumn.

"Yeah, " I answered. I stole a glance at him and saw him looking at his cell phone.

"Oh, " he glanced up and a smile appeared on his lips as he saw me. "She's with my friend."

Well, that wasn't really comforting. "Who?"

"Ty, " he shrugged. "She'd be alright. He's a gentleman."

I let out an exasperated sigh. Geez, Autumn, why didn't you just inform one of us that you wanted to go with the nerd?! I quickly relayed the information to Jess and Norma. I stood up and brushed the back of my dress. "Okay, I should probably go too." I glanced at the clock on my phone screen. It was midnight. I knew I've told my parents I'd be staying at Jess' but I could be in trouble if they suddenly decided to call Mr. and Mrs. Williams to check up on me and found out I was still outside.

"Mey." He looked up at me and ran one hand through his dark hair. "Can I have your number?" His voice sounded unsure and if I wasn't dreaming, I would say that he looked a little nervous.

I shook my head. I wasn't the type of girl who would simply give her number to any attractive strangers she met at a friend's party. "I don't give my numbers to people I don't know."

He frowned. "But you know me." His eyes reminded me of a puppy.

I smiled. "Yeah, for like, two hours."

"Then how many hours does a guy need to get your number?" He was still looking at me, the moonlight shone on his face, making it harder for me to tell him that he'd never get my number.

"You tell me the three unforgivable spells in Harry Potter." He fished out his cell phone, probably going to Google it up, so I quickly added, "by reading the book, without searching the Internet, and I'd give you my number."

"Fine, " he pursed his lips and stood, making me realize that he was way taller than me. I honestly thought he would give up and look for other girls who were probably looked prettier than me and were more willing in giving their numbers, instead he shoved his hands into the pockets of his jeans and asked, "Which book should I read?"

I had to bite my cheek to refrain myself from smiling. "Take a guess. There're seven books, excluding the earliest Harry Potter and The Cursed Child." I finally gave in and smiled. "Pick one and the next time you see me, you have to know the answers, okay?" I turned around and walked into

the house to search for Jess. After all, I still needed my ride.

H u n t e r | 1: Wild Card

I watched her go, knowing that I would get the answers, no matter what it takes.

I looked down at my phone, for a second felt tempted to look up the answers on the internet and ran to her, but I knew if I wanted this if I really wanted her that bad, I had to do it the right way.

I walked to the backyard, knowing Luc would be there. I saw him leaning against the wall with a cloud of cigarette smoke surrounding his head. The little girl he has been trying to impress was nowhere near him, which was probably a good thing because I doubted she'd be impressed if she saw him looking like a heavy smoker.

"Where's the girl?" Luc asked me casually, but I could tell he was going for a kill by the look in his eyes.

I shrugged. "I don't know what you're talking about." I went to his side and leaned my back against the wall.

Lucas nudged me hard with his elbow. "Don't lie. Ty said you've been madly in love with this girl, so where is she?"

Damn it, Ty! "She went home, " I answered truthfully, knowing there was no point in denying.

"Well, did you get her number?" Luc exhaled a long stream of smoke as he tilted his head up at the sky.

It was embarrassing to admit that I didn't get Mey's number, but again, these guys were my friends. I knew the more I lied, the more they'd tease me about it. Because you could never hide anything from your buddies.


This got Luc's attention. He turned to face me. "You didn't?" His eyes widened in confusion. "What the hell is wrong with you, man? Did you lose your charm?"

I rubbed my face and slid my hand to the back of my neck. "She's not like any girl I know. She's different. I'm not losing my charm, " I smiled sourly. "I just didn't use it on her. This time I'm going to do it right." I nodded to myself. "She's worth it."

Luc frowned. The corners of his mouth twitched and I thought he was going to burst into laughter but instead he dropped his cigarette and put his hand on my shoulder. "She's the one, isn't she?"

I was the type of guy who knew I wasn't a good guy so I've never tried to be one. I did whatever I wanted, the way I wanted, regardless the consequences. My friends called me a wild card because I often did the unexpected things.

When life throws lemons and I'd make orange juice, leaving everyone wonder how the hell did that happen.

Even though I dated many girls, I knew that one day I'd meet someone and feel the unexpected. I knew that one day I'd meet the one and fall so madly in love that I'd give up all the game and be good for her.

Tonight, I knew it happened when I first saw her in the corner of the room, with her head buried deep in the book she carried like a precious treasure. And when our eyes met, I felt like I've been struck by a lightning. The tingling sensation running through my body told me that I've found my treasure.

Lucas and Tyler knew about this, they were the only ones who didn't laugh. The only people who didn't think that this was stupid. Now that it happened, I knew they'd have my back. "Yeah."

Luc patted my shoulder. "Then go get her, man. No matter what."
