I turned and raised a brow at him when I realized the kind of place he has brought us. I don't need to be able to speak Italian to know Carlos had brought us to one.
"Italian restaurant" I stated and he just nod in reply.
"Have you been here before?"
"No I haven't but_"
"_then you are going to love it"
"Yeah but this place look really expensive. Are you sure it's a good idea for us to eat here?,I mean we can just go someplace else you know. I won't mind at all"
I start to protest but instead of agreeing with him, he just chuckled at me instead. I bet I sound really lame if not poor.
"It's okay Ava. You don
* Logan walked over to our table in a menacing way and stood staring at me while ignoring Carlos presence completely. I couldn't help but stare right into his eyes. It felt like I was drowning in them. I couldn't break eye contact with him either. I was beyond hypnotized. It was as if the air around me has been knocked right out of my lungs and I was left to breathe through his mere presence by my side. Gosh! He pulled out a cigarette and a lighter from his pocket and lit it. He held it up to his lip and took a long drag still maintaining eye contact with me. Logan chuckled dryl
* Carlos and I ended up at an ice cream booth and I couldn't stop blushing. He actually remembered the option I gave him the day he was asking me out on a date. "What!" "Ice cream really?" I asked, cocking a brow at him. "I do remember someone telling me she likes vanilla ice cream with extra topping" he answered, amusingly. Looking down at my hand, I answered sheepishly. "Yeah, you are right" "Come on then, let go get some for you" We walked up to a b
*Carlos and I were pretty inseparable for the next couple of days that followed. We texted every minute and second of each day. We even met up in secret places at every single opportunity we got and made out a lot too.It's been one crazy week since and to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way though. Carlos has been the best boyfriend so far. He makes sure to pick me from home to school and drops me after.We have bonded so well that I practically craves his presence these days and he in turn has been making out time for me too.I didn't even tell Kara about my sneaky rendezvous with Carlos which was very much unlike me, when normally I'd tell her about every single damn thing, as if she was my therapist.Well, I guess that's what best friends do. Tell each other things they wouldn't normally talk to their parent about.
*"O.M.G Ava" Kara had exclaimed in the most dramatic way ever, after I told her exactly how my date with Carlos went that night.And when i said everything?, i mean,every single damn thing that happened."I always knew, that Logan dude has a thing for you but I didnt realize it was enough for him to want to cause a scene after seeing you and Carlos together" Kara said with kneaded brows and began pacing around in circles. She act that way whenever she is nervous or thinking up shit in her head.I just hope she doesn't end up with headache from all that pacing because my head was starting to spin, just
*Carlos led the way with me trailing him from behind with pretty happy feet. Our hands still interlocked while we made our way through the sea of student scattered across the hallway.He kept stealing little glances at me as we continued to walk our way down the hall way and up the stairs with fast pace.I have no idea where he was taking me but I know I have got to trust him. We slipped through the corner and into one of the janitors room.I gasped in panic when he whirled around and pulled me into his chest all of a sudden."Are you ready?" he asked mischievously. Amusement playing at the corner of his lips.My heart was definitely racing at this point. My feet was becoming all jellyfish as well. I took a sharp intake of breath and exhaled slowly, then answered with a nod. "Just tell me already"I hated the suspense and the need to wait, just to figure something out. The uncertainty always freaks the shit
*Realization hit me hard and I quickly picked up my bag and push the door open only to find Logan leaning casually against the wall and staring back at me with a blank expression.He looked calm and very much in tune with himself. His pretty green orbs fixed gingerly at my approaching steps."What are you doing here Logan?" I asked, trying to sound as stern as possible.He scoffed at my question and pushed himself off the wall before closing the remaining distance between us. "I'm the one asking the questions today not you Ava""Oh?" My brow raised slightly at him.His eyes literally gave me a full body scan in that few minutes, making me pretty uncomfortable in my own skin.What's exactly is wrong with this boy
*"How?, how did you get that?" I practically jumped at him but he stepped all the way back and out of my reach in one swift move.I gave a frustrated groan and launched after him again."Give that back, right now" I demanded with a stumped feet and moved forward. Aiming for his chest but Logan darted out of my reach yet again.Putting some safe distance between us, he stood shaking his head from side to side in a really taunting way."Not so fast Avalon. You need to stay calm alright?. we have to talk about something really important"Arghh. I groaned even louder. My cheeks burning in anger and blood rushing through the tip of my ears."The only thing you and I,are gonna talk about right now, is you handing me back my necklace right after you explained how you managed to take it from me and nothing else" I sneered at him.Logan chuckled manically at me. I bet he was enjoying all of my frustration like never before. He was actu
Kara dropped me off in front of my house. I got down and shot her a small smile before hurrying along.We didn't speak much on our way home. She seemed pretty much occupied with her own thought and leaving me to mine. I couldn't be more grateful for the peace and quiet.I pushed the front door open and made my way inside with careful steps, trying not to attract any form of attention to myself but I wasn't so lucky.My dad was seating in front of the TV in the living room while my mom had just emerged from the kitchen with a spatula in one hand."Hey mom, dad" I plastered a small smile on my face."Hey sweetie" my mom looked at me, her smile mirroring mine."How was school?" Dad had spared me a smile too, looking away from the TV and back at me."School was great" I lied through my teeth and my mom read right through me.She arched a brow at me and took two steps closer and I took one step backward before sh
