All pairs of eyes are focused on him, the guys whistle at Sienna and I but both of us were glaring at each other. I don't care if she finds out about Liam and me as long as she backs off."Liam is that mom?" I ask sitting down beside him."It's not" he whispers in my ears, I look at him questioningly."I'll tell you later " he replies tugging me close to him. I could see our peers casting glances towards us.Bryan spin the bottle again, finally pointing towards Liam, I could hear my heart beating suddenly."Liam truth or dare?" Sienna asked in excitement."Truth" he announces. I release a breath of relief unknowingly."Okay, Do you have someone you like?" She asks her eyes fill with hope. Some of them nod their head approvingly at the question. Sienna and her friends were squealing while I roll my eye
Present-day.....It's been three months since my mom and dad left me, three months since Liam came back, nobody would tell me about my parents and I stop asking. My board exam just ended last week, I would be going to college in the summer, away from the town. I still have three more months until college, three months to finally escape from this place. "Scarlet you hear me?" Jamie waves her finger in front of my face. We've been working together for almost a week now, the first day she came to work Jamie got a whole lot of scolding from our rude boss. Ashton hardly smiles to everyone which is so hard for Jamie and I. Jamie being so clumsy knock over the books in the second row earning three minutes session of warning from Aston, the poor girl is almost in the verge of tears when Ashton scolded her in front of many strangers, the second day she came she's a lot more okay when asked if she was always clumsy, she replied was " Oh I forgot to wear my glasses yesterday " we both have laug
Aunt left an hour ago and I am stuck with Liam in the hospital, the doctor came and gave him pain killers, he's been asleep for almost half an hour now, Liam snores a little while I sat in the chair next to his bead. His light brown hair falls over his eyes, almost covering it. When I look at him closer he looks a little bit older, his lips parted slightly, his chest heaving up and down. I long to trace his face with my fingers but refrain from doing so. My phone vibrates beside me indicating a message. I smile when I see Jamie sending me pictures of her dad diner. My phone beeps with another text, but this time it was from an unknown number. I open the text and the picture shock me. It is a picture of my parents again, but this time they were sitting with some other people. Their faces are not visible, but I knew it was my parents from first glance. Liam stirred in his sleep making me turn my attention towards him, I wonder who it was who kept taking photos of my parents. It can't
I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing, I tried to move but an arm holds me in place, I peer my eyes open taking in the sight of the hospital wall and ceilings. Suddenly last night events rush in my head making my heart thump, God how foolish I was to kiss him like starve women. My face heated when the image of us kissing hungrily flash in my mind, Liam is sleeping peacefully his arms encircling my waist tightly. "Liam" I shake him a little, he stirred a little but went back to sleep, making me frown. I lift his arms and push his hands away slipping out of the bed. The time in my phone says 6 am, I put on my black blazer and with one last look towards Liam I left the room. I text Aunt Ruth saying I left for work early. The sky is still dark when I step out if the hospital, the cities looks so beautiful with lights and streetlights.If only life was this beautiful, I thought. I texted Jamie if I could come to her place, luckily for me, Jamie texted me back with yes and Jumping s
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
