"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
*At exactly ten minutes later, I was dressed in a blue T-shirt and skinny black jean with my all time favorite black boots and waiting for kara to come pick me up.My hair was flying freely across my shoulders as I let it down from my uptight ponytail. I was in a mood to just let it loose and float in the air.Winter was finally coming to an end and the weather was becoming more and more friendly and a lot warmer.I took a quick glance at my direction at the vanity mirror and let out a long sigh and made for the door, stopping only to grab my phone from the bed.My dad was out for some groceries and mom was still at work. I hurried outside at the sound of Kara's car. She looked just as elegant, her pale flawless skin matching her white floral dress and pink sneakers.I got into the passenger's seat and gave her a kiss across the cheek. She replied with a giggle and a sideways glance at my direction before raising a single brow at me.
Tears began to burn my eyes as I hurried away with no particular destination in mind. All I wanted was to get away from that diner and from Carlos as quickly as possible.I could see guilt, written all over his features. He was barely maintaining eye contact with me and couldn't even deny the fact that I just accused him of being with Lilly.Pssssh!It wasn't even a dumb accusation just in case you thought I was being childish about seeing my boyfriend with her supposed best friend and hand in hand too. Everything was just too damn obvious and right there to see.I mean,what better confirmation was there than for him to keep quiet and act like I was making up things in my head.For nights, I cried thinking it was all my fault. That I broke us with my pretty unstable feelings towards what we both wanted.Heck!I should have seen it coming. But I guess, i was just too stupid and naive to believe everything was going to be
*I gave a careless shrug. "Then you should really use it at this point because your black makeup is all over your pretty face" I told her quite frankly.I noticed her shoulders grow tense almost immediately at my word and it made me regret telling her the truth in the first place.The last thing I wanted was to make her feel like she was looking less pretty because that would be a total lie.Smeared mascara or not, she was still the most prettiest girl I have seen in a while and I doubt a little bit of tears and weird makeup gone wrong was gonna change any of that view anytime soon.Ava looked so fragile with red puffy eyes due to how much she must have cried before I showed up. I hate prying at her private life. It's not like she ever makes it easy for me. It's even safe to say, she hates my very presence. I can't even blame her. Carlos already had her smitten under his charm like a little kitten.When i saw her crying, it to
*I woke up the next morning and dragged myself out of bed and went to shower and got dressed for school before hurrying down to meet my mom in the kitchen for breakfast."Good morning mom" I kissed her across the cheeks and tried to sound as cheerful as possible. She gave me a quick glance before focusing on her cooking.It smells like fresh coffee and pancakes around here and I can't wait to have a bite."Morning sweetie. You slept okay?""Yes I did"Well I wished that answer was true and not me lying through my teeth, sleep happens to be one luxury I couldn't afford throughout last night no matter how hard I tried.A cup of some of that black coffee is what am gonna be needing to keep me on my feet in school today or I'd be toast.As if she could read my mind, she flipped two pancakes into another plate and passed it to me across the kitchen island while I poured myself a cup of coffee.I settled down on the stool and
