"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
"Scarlet come back" Liam yells from his car, I smile sardonically in his direction and push the glass door in, my heels clicking in the tile floor.When Liam told me about my half-brother I was no more surprise, I knew there was a reason why mom invited me willingly. She wanted to drop another bomb. I could hear Liam footsteps echoing behind me. The interior of the restaurant is very fancy with lights like a chandelier in the middle. The place looks perfect for rich people dining with a rotten personality.My eyes met with my mom at the far end at one of the tables, she smiles at me widely waving me over. Angel sat with dad, mom with someone I have never met. I couldn't see his face clearly but it is enough to know he shares blood with Angel. I walk towards them with Liam trailing behind me.Just when I was about to take my seat, Liam holds my arms stopping me. I stare at him in confusion waiting for him to say something. " Please don't
"What?""I said I am not dating your crazy sister" Liam repeats smiling a little. He probably found me funny probably because my mouth is hanging open from the moment I heard him say he is not dating my sister."Stop lying, " I say my heart leaping out of my chest."Now why would I lie?" Liam says flicking my forehead. I don't bother to retaliate instead stare at him with so many emotion.Is it relief? Love? Grateful?"Stop staring at me " his voice breaks me out from my stare."You don't know how much I want to punch you, Liam," I say a smile lighting up face unwillingly."Well, isn't this comfortable?" He says looking down at our position. I blush hard at his word and whack his arm.Liam chuckles at my obvious flushing face and pinches my cheek like I am a kid. "Stop doing that, I a
Two years ago,I snuggle under the covers deeper grimacing at the pain in my abdomen. Just why do I have to be a girl?I have this huge awesome idea of flaunting my boyfriend to my classmates and now I am stuck in the bed moaning like a cow giving birth.Mom left for work early claiming she has answers to evaluate and dad being the workaholic left at dawn.Liam won't be picking me up today because he's dropping Justin to his school. I've got no means to tell him I am not coming to school since my battery is at 0% from sleeping in the middle of the movie.My tears stream down my face when I couldn't hold the pain anymore. God, how did my mom gave birth to me?I tried sleeping yet I couldn't, my hands are trembling from holding the sheets with all my might.I pray mentally to let it stop yet it never calms down.Where is God at this hour?
