Emily's Pov:

The room was dark and quiet as usual, as if long series of serial murders took there and I was its next victim, entering the dangerous area where my murderer was already waiting for me, with a shimmering sharp knife in his hands.

Stumbling sllghtly, I put my hands over switch and taking a deep breath, I pressed it firmly. Immediately, everything glowed, brightness reaching every corner of the room, it's light falling on each and every object of the room.

Modern devices and polished furnitures lay sprawled on the floor just like the last time I visited, window glasses covered with gray white curtains and black carpet showed all signs of luxurious odour one can get by visiting the office of youngest surviving billionare.

But I didn't come to drool over his wealth as there was nothing he owned which I didn't know of. Pleasant masucline cologne bursted my senses and I was suddnely reminded of the reason I was there and now that I was thinking about it, I saw very well that the said reason wasn't anywhere to be found.

He wasn't here. Why. Did he really think so low of me that he couldn't even face me after all that? Was our friendship always this vulnerable and pathetic, it's threads dangling loose all this time? Was I the only one who thought nothing could break our precious pious bond!?

Did he regret touching me that much?

Kneeling down on the floor, I peeked under the table and sofa, banged my hands on the counter, knocked my fingers on the wall to make sure I didn't leave any place to find him.

But Emily, he wasn't a child anymore?! Do you really think he would just hide under table or sofa like a baby boy?!

But he did hid under the empty water tank the day he got fight with those boys who dared to call me a boring tomboy and bullied me. I clearly remember him hiding there to avoid his father who got a call from school telling him that their son is becoming a thug, beating up those boys! We were fourteen then, oh sweet days they were!

My eyes searched for imaginary water tank or anything he might have mistaken for water tank to hide in!

I heard a distinct shuffle on the corner of room, smile crawling my lips instantly to see his reflection on the nearby glass.

Oh. So he's hiding in his library. Or more precisely, mine as of last year he gifted it to me as my birthday gift!

As always, he couldn't fool me for long. Immediately, I rushed to the door and pulled the plate up, alphabet keyboard popping in my view, to enter the password which I set for myself.

My password. The date of my first dance with Edward in my first prom when Lara wasn't his girlfriend. Indeed, I didn't get the chance to go with him in subsequent proms or parties 'cause Lara would always pester him to go with him which he would willingly comply to but still, First will always be first for me.

And I was glad I was his first dance as well. Though I coudn't say the same for his rest of the firsts which he gladly shared all with her.

The loud buzzer snapped me out of my thoughts and I realized I entered the wrong password. I tried again. Still wrong. Typed Again. Wrong for ten times now, going to all security mode.

I kicked the wall in frustration, slightly staggering back with the pain shooting through my covered toes.

How dare he! Really!

"EDWARD!! How dare you! You changed my password? My password!!? Wait! How did you even know about it? I thought I was very discrete about it?!"

No response.

"Edward? Are you under there?!"

I knocked on the wall, pressing my ears on cold wall to listen to any movement he might make. But he made none of that.

I knocked loudly this time. "Edw

our name!" he yelled.

What? Really?

"What? You forgot my name in just... four days.. Wow-"

I heard him take sharp intake of breath.

"Damn, Emily. Your name is my password!"

Oh.... Big "Oh" it was for me..

I fumbled with the keyboard, typing it fast only to have it wrong every time I put it. I tried continously, getting loud buzzer every time. My eyebrows furrowed in confusion.

Did I forget even my own name? Really? Last time I remember, it was the first thing which my mom helped me to write on my copy on my first day to kindergarten.

I typed yet again. Went wrong again.

"Edward! Dont fucking play with me or my patience! I'm gonna bury you alive once I get inside, you official rotten potato!"

What did I even think? That he would really save my name as his password?!

"What? It's the one I typed it. I remember it clearly. I have-" he started to say in confusion.

"Yes yes, long term memory for a man. I know. Now tell me the real password!"

"What did you type in the keyboard!?"

Is he joking?

"My name of course, like you told me sir!" I mimicked that noodle name lady's way of calling him "Sirrrrr"

"Tell me the exact letters, or words, will you!?

"Emily Willows!"

He was silent for so long time, I almost thought he ate a snake in breakfast and that creature decided to poison his stomach and mouth the exact time he was going to tell me his fucking password!

I typed Lara's name just in case he must have saved her name in his passcode but too lost in thought to remember it. It was wrong though.

I panicked.

"Oh my god Edward! You're locked, you're doomed for eternity. Oh dear, you're gonna turn old and ugly as a cat and die there all alone, your skeleton will be eaten by spiders and you aren't even fortunate-"

"Lily!"

"Tell me the damn passcode, will you?!

"Well... It's... Your name!"

"I typed it already and its-"

"With my surname!" he hurriedly added in a high tone.

"What?!"

"Emi, my password is your name with my surname!"

I gawked at the wall for a minute, my cheeks flaming hot unconsciously, secretly liking the sound of my name with his surname before typing it proudly on keyboard and the door clicked open with a low creak.

I smiled and pushed the wooden door open with full force, yet again having hyperventilation to face him again, my sweaty palms still gripping doorknob and my eyes widening a little to see him after a long time.
