"I can't do this any more Em. These feelings I've bottled up for the past five years are killing me. I can't take it anymore." Beca said with her head in her hands. She had been in her room with Emily for the past fifteen minutes talking to her about how she was feeling. Usually Beca would go to Stacie her best friend to talk about this stuff but since this was about Stacie, Beca turned to the next closest person she has, Emily the girl she considered as her little sister.
Emily sighed before sitting next to Beca "Just tell her Beca."
Beca looked up with a sniff "I'm scared Em. What if she doesn't feel the same way? I can't lose her."
Emily cracked a small smile "Beca listen, ever since I've known you, you've always gone after what you wanted. You've never been afraid to say what you feel. You are the toughest girl I know so why is this any different?"
Beca sniffed "Because this is Stacie. Stacie who I've known since senior year of high school. Stacie who is the most beautiful and sexy person in the world. Stacie who has been my best friend for five whole years."
Emily smiled again "See Beca, the same way you just told me that, with confidence and love in your eyes is the same thing you have to do with Stacie. You say your worried about Stacie not feeling the same, but how would you ever know if you never tell her? If you want her as bad as you say you do, then tell her. I promise you, you may be surprised." Emily said.
Emily said that last part due to the fact that she knew Stacie felt the same way. Emily had overheard Stacie tell Amy a couple of weeks ago before a date when they were all over at Stacie's and Beca's apartment.
"You think so?" Beca asked.
Emily nodded "I know so. You're an amazing girl Beca. You're beautiful, talented, smart, funny but most importantly, you have a heart of gold. Stacie would be lucky to have you. So go down there and tell her how you feel. You got this." Emily answered.
Beca nodded and took a deep breath. She felt this surge of confidence flow through her as soon as she got up.
"I'll be here no matter what." Emily said as she got up.
Beca nodded before opening the door and walking downstairs towards the kitchen where Stacie was with Amy.
"Oh hey Beca." Stacie beamed at her best friend.
"Stacie." Beca stopped a few feet in front of the taller girl and froze. All that confidence she just had vanished.
Emily has just reached the bottom of the steps and sensed that Beca was going to freeze up, so she walked up to her.
"Lay it out there." She whispered in her ear as she casually passed by her giving her a squeeze on her shoulder.
"Becs? What's wrong? Why have you been crying?" Stacie asked as she eyed the smaller girl who was now standing stiff.
Beca took a deep breath as tears were still building up in her eyes "I need to talk to you. I've needed to talk to you for a while now." Beca said.
Staci nodded "Alright, you know you can tell me anything." She said softly now worried.
"I know. It's just this isn't easy for me to say. I've been afraid to say this, every time I go to say this to you, I just freeze." Beca said.
Amy who was looking on looked towards Emily who gave Amy a knowing nod. These two had been talking about trying to get Beca and Stacie to tell the other how they were feeling. Emily and Amy slowly made their way towards the dinning room table.
"I'm in love with you!" Beca blurted out catching everyone by surprise.
"Wow, she just went for it." Amy mumbled.
"At least she finally said it." Emily mumbled back.
"I'm in love with you, so fucking in love with you Stace. I have been for a while and these past couple of months have been pure torture for me. Seeing you go out on all these dates with guys and girls while I just stand on the sidelines has made my life hell. I can't just stand on the side anymore, I need to get this out. Stacie I've been afraid to tell you because I didn't want to possibly ruin our friendship, I was afraid that if you don't feel the same then you wouldn't want to be my friend anymore, and I can't lose you. I need you in my life." Beca said in full-blown tears.
Stacie was speechless as she had tears running down her cheeks.
"I don't know how you feel or if all these dates make you happy. If they do then by all means don't let me stop you, I don't want to get in the way of your happiness. I just want to be honest and transparent with you, you deserve that much. I just, if you do by some miracle feel the same way about me, please give me a chance. Give this a chance because I promise you that you won't regret it. If you do give me a chance then I'll do any and everything I can to make you happy and please you. I love you so much that it hurts, and I'll never stop loving you Stacie Conrad." Beca said with as much love and honesty she could muster up.
Stacie cracked a tearful smile and stood up walking over to her best friend. She stared at Beca in the eyes and admired those stormy blue eyes. She wiped some tears from her face before bringing her in for a passionate kiss. Once they broke it, Stacie rested her forehead on Beca's.
"I'm in love with you too, you goof." Stacie said softly.
Beca smiled "Really?"
Stacie nodded "A thousand percent."
"So you're willing to give us a chance?" Beca asked hopeful.
"Oh yeah." Stacie smiled before bringing Beca in for another kiss.
