Continue..... I walk up the stairs heading towards the guest room I am staying, Liam walks out of his room with crutches his face wincing a little. He looks up, our eyes meeting, none of us knew how to act, after standing wordlessly for almost a minute Liam walk past me groaning slightly. "Do you need help?" I asked. "It's fine," he says coldly. Huffing, I turn back and take hold of his arms letting him lean on me. " I said it's fine," he says frowning at me when I look up to see his face considering he's 6 feet tall."Yeah, and the dinner will be done if you walk at that pace," I said grinning up at him. His lips twitch at my words, we walk down together slowly step by step, Aunt Ruth rushing towards us when she sees us. "Liam I'll kill you myself if you drive so carelessly again" Aunt Ruth chided. "Mom I said it's not my fault " he deadpans. I pinch his waist making him wince. "Don't give me that shit, I am saying be careful next time, you're lucky you only hurt your legs"
FuckWhy does this keep on happening?"But Angel how did you-""I came to visit you, I heard about your accident?" Angel clings to Liam talking like Janice from Friends. Meanwhile, I was frozen in shock at the presence of my parents."Mom when did you?" I stuttered."We came like ten minutes ago," she said coming towards me, She hugs me tightly sniffing my hair"You smell so good darling, come greet your dad" I nod my head and walk towards dad, my steps hesitant. I thought I would be happy seeing them but I can't bring myself to feel happy. They left me for three months with no news or any word and they expect me to welcome them with my arms wide open?"Scarlet " dad greets me smiling slightly that didn't reach his eyes."Hi dad " I wave my hand and stood awkwardly next to him."I am sorry we couldn't come ea
"Scarlett " Jamie shrieks running away from me, I burst out laughing at her splashing the water, the sound of her screaming and shrieking echo through the night in the swimming pool. Jamie refused to swim saying she already showered but I refuse to let her have her way because she blames me here for coming here in the first place."Come in the water " I yell and duck my head under the water, my heart feels a little light as I stay under the water for another thirty minutes. I look around for Jamie but she's nowhere in sight.I step out of the pool covering myself with the towel, my teeth chattering from the coldness. I hurriedly put on my clothes and dry my hair with the towel and step inside that resembles a living room. I still can't believe Ashton lives alone in a place like a mansion, his house is too damn huge I need a map if I was to come again.I sauntered in what seems like to be the living room and heave in
Two years ago,The bus drove past the familiar street, the trees disappearing from our view. It's the first day of my 11th grade, Liam is in his senior year. I was beyond excited to come to school with my best friend aka my boyfriend. The summer is spent together with Liam playing or going dates. I am happy is an understatement, I have never felt this way for someone.When I was younger I firmly believe I won't fall in love, yet I fell for my best friend without me realising my feelings for him."Scarlet, don't be creepy," Liam says from beside me. I scoffed at his word, not at all fazed by his word."What did I do?""Stop smiling at the back of the seat, it gives me chills""Hah! Drama queen""Are you excited about the first day?" He asks me."Hmmm, what If I don't make any friends?" I was indee
"Dad I am not coming back home, yes hmm ""No, I can go to college from my place"Feeling frustrated Jamie sat down on the couch sighing. It seems her dad was asking her to come back home."Dad I am not alone, Scarlet is staying with me for the past few days""I can't hear you, what are you saying?" She says in the phone faking a bad connection."Phew" she breathes out closing her phone."Is your dad asking for you to come back?" I asked her."Yeah, he wants me to come back. I mean that's a big no " she says shaking her head vigorously."Why? Is because of your -? " I stop myself from seeing her face."Yeah, but I have fun living by myself" she explains."Hmm ""Scarlet what shall we do today? It's weekend and we deserve to enjoy" Jamie say
Two years ago,I debated on knocking the door or go back home, I stood outside the porch counting from 1 to 100. Liam was ignoring my call for some reason so I decided to take the matters in my hand.Liam parents never stayed home because they were busy most of the time. This is the first time Liam ignores me for one whole day, we have never talked since yesterday after I left alone for home. He was being an asshole ignoring all my messages. My message last night consists of threats and violence so I understand if he was more upset. He would have come running to meet me if it was another day but not today and that makes me so sad.I call his number thrice yet he never picks up, part of me was burning with rage but the bigger part is me is scared to death.I ran back towards his window and picks up four-five pebbles to throw.The first four pebbles don't even reach his w
My mom used to say learn to forgive others when I was young, yet I never try to. I considered forgiving a huge burden and I don't know how I am supposed to forgive someone that hurts you so much. It's exactly how I felt for Liam, he hurts me so deep yet why it is so hard to let him go?He is like my cocaine and rehab, I knew I have to give up but what's holding me back?Bring a naive girl I was I believe at least for a day, we would find ways to get back together but he proves that I was yet wrong again.Why is that every wrong direction is the only way I knew how to walk?My head hurts thinking of the evening to come, mom calls me up last night asking me to dine together at Liam home with my dad, I dismiss her invitation immediately wondering why she would suggest something so ridiculous. Mom was mad at first but she was being adamant, I wonder why I ever agree to go in the first place.<
"Don't move " Jamie scolds me holding my face in place dabbing the cream on my face. when I told her about the dinner she forces me to say yes. Grey was teasing me about being a Coward for backing away from having dinner with my parents. They were also one of the reasons why I said yes to my mom.Grey exact words were 'spoilt brat declining her parent's invitation' I could have been angry if it was from another person but I knew he didn't mean any harm."Scarlet I am sure Liam will bow down in his knees when he sees you, " Jamie says opening the mascara. She grins widely catching my eye in the mirror.When she starts applying mascara in my eyelashes, she opens her mouth in 0 shapes making me chuckle at her face."What's wrong?" She asked me.I shake my head smearing the mascara in my face. For a moment I we stare shock at my face and later burst out in laugh holding our stomach with tears es
