Hey!!! I’m Skylar, I’m seventeen and am at the high light of my life. I’m a California girl, I’ve lived here since birth, but I have traveled to other places. I live in Los Angeles California. At my school, I’m a cheerleader and (duh) so are most of my friends. I’m the captain, so I’m pretty popular. There are people that 愛 me and then there are the people that 愛 to hate me. Whatever. I’m better than them so they can get over it.
Well, besides what I already told you, here are some things about me: I like the Colors（色） baby blue, light pink, and yellow. If you’re a goth person, あなた wouldn’t like me または California because every thing is bright and summery all the time!!! I 愛 it!!! I sort of think I’m preppy because of most of the clothes I wear, but I don’t think I talk like I’m preppy. When I was younger I used to be in pageants, but I quit that before my freshman year.
I’ve never had braces, I’m super tan, and I have blonde hair that goes about an inch past my shoulders in a layered cut like the girl Amy from Secret Life Of The American Teenager has. I did not copy the style from her, I’ve had this since I was thirteen. I have many friends, but my closest ones are Lana and Chad, Cali and Mark, Lily and Oliver, Malirie and Mike, Alicia and Riley, and my boyfriend Chandler. Every one, as あなた can see how I wrote it, is together.
Lana and Chad: Lana is great, she’s c feel peaceful inside. We’re in love, and I couldn’t be happier. He’s not the quarterback, he’s way better than that. He plays サッカー and swims and plays volley ball and so many other sports. But I don’t like him because he’s a jock; he’s just way different than any other guy I’ve known または dated.
The other 愛 of my life is my car. It’s a baby blue jaguar [mom and dad 発言しました they didn’t have ピンク または yellow]. It’s great. It’s fast, which is good for 通り, ストリート racing, and it’s a convertible, which is great for these hot California days. I always keep towels and tampons and blankets in the back, for any time we decide to go to the beach. あなた think I have just one car? NO WAY!!!!
My 秒 car is for when me and my フレンズ have a bonfire. We stay out late and spend the night at the beach. It’s kind of like a hippie van. In the front is two seats, in the back there’s a ソファー, ソファ that folds out, blankets, towels, a few lanterns, a mini fridge stocked with ice cream, red ブル and any thing else I decide to put in.
Then it’s my black Mercedes, that goes super fast, which is so fun when you’re driving in the fast lane. This car I got customized to have DVD players, a bangin stereo system, and made to be a convertible. I mean, come on, it’s hot in California and I’m not gonna be all hot in shit just to be stylin’, I’ll be stylin’ in my own way!!!!
My last car is a jeep wrangler. It’s great for when it’s just me and a few friends, in addition to that, as I drive down the 通り, ストリート the breeze cools us off on a hot day. Plus again it has towels and blankets and stuff, just like my other vehicles.
Family…… My Mom and Dad are (surprisingly) still married, but they fight all the time, または at least when ever I’m around I hear them fighting. I have an older brother, Nick, he’s 20, and I have an older sister, Hailey, who is 19. I have a great relationship with both of them, and we talk almost every day. They’re both off at college, and they visit when ever they have a break from school.
My house is HUGE!!!! Some people that I’m フレンズ with have nice houses too, because we live in the same neighborhood. Lana, Cali, and Malirie all have nice houses. My house is big [duh], has a twelve car garage, a movie theatre, bowling alley, a guest house separate from the house, a patio, in-door in-ground pool with a ceiling overhead made of windows that open up. We even have water slides and a Jacuzzi!!! I don’t want to sound stuck up but….. I 愛 My Life!!!!!
Part One: Drama and New Stuff and a Mother Who is Really 芝居 Strange From How She Normally Is.
Today is Friday, so only one もっと見る 日 of school and then tons of free time to do what ever, and its also memorial 日 this weekend so we have off of school until Wednesday. I wake up before my alarm clock goes off look at the time (5:45), and get dressed for school. I text every one of my フレンズ and see who’s up and who wants a ride to school. I hear my phone chime while I’m in the bathroom brushing my teeth and putting on whitening strips, it’s from Chandler.
‘Hey Babe! Did u sleep ok?’ He says.
I reply: ‘Hi. I slept great. HBU? BTW, Do u need a ride 2 skool?’
Almost immediately I get a reply: ‘I slept great too, I dreamt of you. Did u dream of me? And yes, I do need a ride to skool, I’ll come over to your house, because I’m doing my morning jog right now. I’ll need to change and take a shower, do あなた have some clothes of mine?’
I reply: ‘Aw, I dreamt of u 2! And okay, that’s fine with me.’ I check to see if I have any of his clothes, and I see there’s a whole pile of clothes in the corner that are his. ‘And yes, あなた have a whole pile of clothes here.’
A couple 分 later, my phone rings. It’s Chandler.
“Hey.” He says.
“Hey.” I say.
“How about あなた look out your window?” He says.
“Okay…….. Why am I looking out my window where are you?” I ask, getting up from my bed, turning on my light and looking out my window.
“I’m here!” He says, waving at me from underneath my window. I laugh.
“Come on up!” I say.
He runs to the side of my house. Down stairs I hear the door open and close, and then I hear footsteps on the steps. My door opens and Chandler walks in. He picks me up in a big hug and spins me around.
“Hey beautiful.” He says.
Once I’m on my feet I say, “Long time no kiss.”
He smiles and bends down to キッス me. “ Okay. I’m gonna grab some clothes and take a shower. See あなた in a few. Don’t get any もっと見る gorgeous.” He says.
“I’ll try my best.” I say.
He goes into my bathroom and closes the door. I lay back down on my ベッド and watch 音楽 videos. Every one replied that they need a ride, except Cali and Mark. I look at my clock. It’s only 6:00. Jeez. A little later, Chandler walks out of my bathroom, towel drying his hair.
“Can I use your straightener?" He asks.
"Yep. あなた know where it is." I say.
Chandler has shaggy, wavy hair, which I think is hot, but he's really self conscious about it. After he straightens his hair, he comes and lies down 次 to me.
“Come over heeeere!” I say because Chandler isn’t putting his arm around me like he usually does.
He laughs. “Sorry babe. Come on.” He says, opening up his arms.
I snuggle into his chest and look up at him.
“You didn’t listen.” He says, his voice soft and loving.
“What?” I ask.
“You got もっと見る beautiful.” He says.
I sigh. “I’m sorry, but あなた got もっと見る attractive too so don’t yell at me!” I say.
He smiles and sits up. I sit up too, moving to stay on him. He kisses me with great passion. Then he’s on 上, ページのトップへ of me…………. I break off from the kiss.
“Chandler, not before school!” I say.
“We’ve never even done it, Skylar, and why would I want to in the morning?” He says.
“Well is this telling me あなた want to? Because I’ll have to get prepared.” I say.
“Maybe.” He says, shrugging.
We get off my ベッド and head out the door. I tell every one that I’m one my way to get them, and I hop in the drivers シート, 座席 of my Mercedes. I make a mental note to go to the clinic and get birth control. Maybe Malirie または somebody will want to get it with me. I stop at Lana’s house where her and Chad run out of her house and hop in my car. Then I go to Marks and pick up Malirie and Mark.
“It’s hot in here.” Lana says.
“Sorry, I forgot to put the 上, ページのトップへ down.” I say.
Hitting the button that will set the 上, ページのトップへ down. “Thank you.” Lana says.
“You’re welcome, your highness.” I say in a British accent.
“ I 愛 British accents.” Malirie says.
“Ew.” Lana says.
I drive us to school, and we all go to our classes. At lunch, we all meet up in the parking lot and go out to lunch. Sitting in the restraunt waiting for our food, I remember that I was going to ask my female フレンズ if they wanted to go to the clinic and get some birth control.
I sigh. “I gotta go to the bathroom.” I say, standing up.
“We’ll go with you.” My フレンズ say.
Me, Lana, Cali, and Malirie all go to the bathroom.
Once we all finish peeing and are washing our hands, I say “Does any one want to get some birth control with me? I’m going to the clinic today after school and I’m getting some.” I say.
“I need to get some more, so I’ll go with you.” Malirie says.
“I will too.” Lana says.
“Eh, I don’t want to be left out, so I’ll get some and take it just in case.” Cali says.
“Okay. So who wants to go the mall afterwards?” Malirie says.
“I do!” We all say at the same time.
“Skylar, you’re driving.” Lana says.
“Okay, which car?” I ask.
“Jaguar!” Every one says.
I laugh. “I figured. I 愛 that car too.” I say.
We walk out of the bathroom and back to our table. The boys are talking football, and all us girls look at one another and roll our eyes. The 食 comes and we eat in silence for a little bit.
“Hey, who wants to have a bonfire tonight?” Cali asks.
“I think that’d be cool. We can play flag football.” Mike says.
“Of course.” Malirie says.
“Boys against girls.” Mike says.
“No! We’d get our asses kicked!!!” I say.
“Then what do あなた suggest?” Mike says, folding his hands on the table.
“Me, Lana, Chandler and Chad, against you, Malirie, Cali and Mark.” I say.
Mike slams his hand on the table. “You’re on!” He says.
“You’re goin down!!!” Lana says.
“We’ll see about that!!!” Cali says.
“Whatever, lets go.” I say.
We all スプリット, 分割 the cost and head back to school. All of the cheerleaders get called out of class for a surprise pep rally. We all change in to our cheerleading uniform and wait while every one gathers in the gym. We line up for our dance and the 音楽 blasts. We turn and start dancing and cheering. My eyes 検索 the crowd for Chandler, and I see him sitting 次 to Lacey, my old best friend. It looks like she’s trying to come onto him. He looks at me and smiles. He mouths ‘I 愛 あなた Skylar.’ I wink and then I glare at Lacey.
At the end of the dance I shout, “Give me a W!” The crowd shouts W.
“Give me an E!” They all shout E.
“What does that spell?” I say. “We!” They shout.
“What are we gonna do?” I ask.
“Win! Win! Win!” They shout.
“That’s right!” I say.
The principal talks, and then we do another cheer, at the end of which I run up to Chandler, sit in his lap and キッス him, Lana, Cali, and Malirie run to their boyfriends and do the same. Every one cheers and I break off from Chandler and look and Lacey.
“Back off あなた fat nobody.” I say, and キッス Chandler again.
“I slept with Chandler, Skylar.” Lacey says. I look at Chandler.
“Is this true?” I ask.
“I’m still a virgin, me and あなた are gonna do it when we’re ready.” Chandler says sincerely. I look at Lacey.
“Try to lie better 次 time, okay? And, just so あなた know, he would never fuck some one with so many rolls. Try getting some one in your own league.” I say, grabbing Chandler’s hand.
We go into the girls locker room where all of my フレンズ are with their boyfriends. We all change and I drop off Mike and Chad off at their houses. When I get to Chandler’s house he turns to me and says, “I’ll miss you.”
“I’ll miss あなた too, but the girls need to have girl time.” I say. “Okay……… Bye. I 愛 you.” He says.
“Bye. I 愛 あなた too.” I say.
We lean in and キッス each other. Then Chandler hops out of my car and Lana climbs into the front.
“Look.” Lana says, 表示中 me some thing on her phone.
“Oh my god あなた took a picture of me and Chandler kissing?!” I say.
“Yep. I’m sending it to あなた now.” She says.
“Thanks.” I say.
I drive to my house and we all hop into my jaguar. I put the 上, ページのトップへ down and we drive to Cali’s house. I honk my horn and Cali runs out to my car and jumps into the back. We drive to the clinic and walk in together.
“Um……… Can I have some birth control?” I ask.
The lady hands me a pack of pills and shoos me away. We all get our pills and get back in my car.
“That girl was a bitch.” I say.
“She’s jealous because we have people to fuck and she doesn’t !” Lana shouts. We all laugh.
“Who’s ready to shop?!” I shout. We all “Whoo hoo!” And I drive us to the mall.
We shopped for three hours. We all go back to my house and go to the guest house, which is where my フレンズ and I go some times when it’s a whole group of us, because we can all talk または cook または eat, and it’s all in the same area, we don’t have to shout things because some one’s down stairs and some one else is upstairs. Me and Lana sit on the bed, and Cali stretches out on the couch, and Malirie sits in the hanging chair. We all dump out our items and 表示する each other what we got. Lana got Gucci sunglasses, green, yellow, and baby blue flip-flops, a short-sleeved Hollister hoodie, two bathing suits, Dior jeans, three bras, two thongs, a tiffany ring, and a coach purse.
Cali got an American Eagle bathing suit, Donna and Oliver Sunglasses, 9 pairs of flip-flops, and a few t-shirts from Abercrombie. Malirie got a lacey tank 上, ページのトップへ from Aeropostale, Coach sunglasses, Doche and Gabana purse, four shorts, an ankle bracelet from Chanel and chanel belly rings for each of us. We all got our belly buttons pierced last month. The belly rings she bought were a butterfly, dolphin, a little ball, and a diamond one. She let us pick which one we wanted, and Lana picked the little ball, Cali picked the butterfly, Malirie got the イルカ and I got the diamond one. We all put them in right away.
I got two bathing suits, a Gucci hand bag, chanel purse, tiffany earrings, two bras and two thongs from Victoria Secret, a pack of tampons (I started when I was @ the mall. Fucking TOM) Blue, red, pink, and white flip flops, Abercrombie shorts, an Aerie bra, four Abercrombie t-shirts, and I paid for every one to get a French manicure and pedicure. We got a lot of stuff! Our nails look great. My phone rings, and I pick it up.
“Hello?” I say.
“Hey!” Chandler says. I put my phone on speaker.
“What’s goin on?” I ask.
“Nothing. We’re all wondering when we’re gonna meet up at the beach.”
“I completely forgot about it!!” I say.
“What time do あなた guys want to go?” I ask my friends.
“We can go in a little bit. Lets just pack up all our stuff and put in your room and then we can go.” Lana says.
“We have to change into our bathing SUITS/スーツ too.” Cali says.
“Well just call my when you’re ready and I’ll be outside with the guys so あなた can pick us up.” Chandler says.
“Okay.” I say.
“Bye 愛 you.” He says.
“Bye, 愛 あなた too.” I say and hang up my phone.
We all chit chat and pack up our stuff, then we walk to my room and set our stuff down. We each take turns and change into our bathing SUITS/スーツ and tank tops and shorts. Lana wears her white short shorts, baby blue lacey tank top, and a オレンジ bikini. Cali wears green shorts and a matching green tank 上, ページのトップへ with a purple bikini underneath. Malirie wears her new Aeropostale tank 上, ページのトップへ and matching shorts, with a hot ピンク bikini underneath. I wear my jean shorts and white tank top, with my new plaid bikini under my outfit.
We all tie our hair up in the same style, and grab our sunglasses and phones and walk out the door. I call Chandler and tell him we’re on our way, and then we all file into my van. I drive to Chandler’s house. The boys walk up to the back of my バン and open it. They each file in and close the door. Chandler comes up behind me and kisses me on the cheek.
“Hey Beautiful.” He says.
“Hey prince charming, I see あなた made it up my long golden locks okay.” I say.
“Of course I did Rapunzel, nothing can keep me away from あなた forever.” He says.
“Oh shut up and just sit down!” Lana says. I laugh and drive us to the beach. We all hop out of the バン and grab blankets and lanterns and things to make smores. We walk to the 火災, 火 pit and set every thing down.
“Okay Mike, where’s the football so we can play flag football?” I ask.
“In the back of your van.” He says.
“Well why don’t あなた go get it so we can kick your ass!” Lana shouts.
“Yeah, I’ma beat あなた so bad!” Chad says, he gets really crazy when it comes to playing sports, any sport.
Mike runs off to retrieve the ball, while we figure out where the touchdown thingy will be. We put sticks down where the stuff will be, and then we separate into our teams; Me, Chandler, Lana, and Chad against Mike, Malirie, Cali and Mark.
Chandler stands the ball up, and Mike runs and kicks it. Which starts our whole game. My team wins (duh, we have Chandler and Chad, they are on teams at school and they know how to play. Me and Lana got tackled a couple times, but we had fun so it was okay.)
“Who wants to play volley ball now?” Cali asks.
“I do!” I say.
“Girls against boys!” Lana says.
“You guys are goin down!” Chad says playfully to Lana.
“Whatever!” She says. Chad crosses the net and kisses Lana, then he runs to the other side.
“Our serve!” I say, and serve the ball.
Chandler slaps it back at me, and Lana spikes the ball. “Oh!” All the girls say. The guys serve, and I go to hit the ball. Some guy from out of no where comes up and spikes the ball at the guys.
“What the hell?!” I say to the guy.
“Sorry Skylar, I’m just helping あなた out.” The guy says.
“Um, do I know you?” I ask.
“You and Lana should, we went to Elementary school together.” He says.
“Oh my god! Skylar, it’s Kyle Baron!” She says.
“Oh my god!” I say, me and Lana rush up to him and hug him, he falls backwards because we kind of tackled him, but what ever!
“Jesus! Nice to see あなた would have been nice.” Kyle says.
“Well, that’s not how we roll.” Lana says. Kyle stands up and brushes himself off.
“I remember.” He says.
“Oh my god, come here We have to introduce あなた to our friends!” I say, grabbing his hand and towing him over to where our group is standing together, not sure what’s going on.
“You guys, this is Kyle, Kyle this is our friends.” I say, and Lana finishes, “Cali, Malirie, Mark, Mike, Chad and Chandler.” She says.
Kyle nods. “Nice to meet あなた guys.” He says.
“Oh my god your voice got deep!” I say.
“Yep, I finally hit puberty.” He says with a little laugh.
Me and Lana laugh. We’re the only ones who understand what he means, he was always the short cute boy in school; every one loved him and were jealous because me and Lana were his friends.
“What are あなた doing in town? あなた moved away.” I ask.
“Well, we moved back. I think I’m gonna be going to school with あなた guys.” He says.
“Great! It’ll be just like old times!” Me and Lana say,
“Have あなた been hangin out with Josh?” Lana asks.
“I remember that was like, our little gang we all hung out with each other.” I say.
“And all the girls were jealous of us because we hug out with あなた guys and they didn’t.” Lana adds. He gives a small laugh.
“Yeah, I’m actually here with him, come on, I’ll take あなた to go see him.” He says.
He grabs mine and Lana’s hand and escorts us to where his バン is, with Josh and some girl standing there watching us approach.
“Josh!” I shout and runs up to hug him. He lifts me up on him and squeezes me.
“Hey Skylar! We haven’t seen あなた guys in forever!” He says. Lana comes up and hugs him too.
“It’s a crime! We were really good friends.” Lana says once Josh sets her down. We introduce our friends, and Josh introduces his sister, Hannah.
“I remember her, she was like, seven the last time I saw her though.” Lana says.
“So what brings あなた guys to the ビーチ other than to play volley ball?” Kyle asks.
“We’re having a bonfire.” I answer.
“Really? Us too!” Josh says.
“Oh wow! あなた guys should hang out with us.” Lana says.
“We will, we’re just waiting for Jordan to get here. Do あなた remember her?” Josh asks.
“Yeah! Oh my god she was like, my best friend, we looked alike and all the teachers let us work together.” Lana says.
“Yep, that’s her. She’s coming here with her boyfriend.” Kyle says.
“Yeah, she texted me the other 日 and we talked for like, three hours and she sent me a picture of her boyfriend.” Lana says.
“What’s he look like?” I ask. Lana pulls out her phone and shows me a picture of him. “I bet they look cute together.” I say.
“He’s really cool.” Kyle says.
“Well, Jordan wouldn’t like him if he wasn’t fun.” Lana says.
“She hasn’t changed a bit from the way she looks.” Josh says.
“But あなた guys definitely have.” Kyle says.
“Well so have あなた guys! I mean, you’re actually tall and あなた finally got a deep voice!” I say.
“Well あなた guys finally look good.” Kyle counters.
“Ah, so nice, but we have boyfriends.” I say.
“So do we.” Kyle says.
“What?!” Me and Lana and Cali and Malirie say together.
“Just kidding!” Kyle says. We all laugh.
“Well, we’re gonna go finish our volley ball game, so just come down when Jordan gets here.” I say.
“Is it okay if I play?” Hannah asks.
“Sure! But Josh または Kyle has to play too.” I say.
“I’ll play.” Kyle says.
“Cool.” I say. We all go back to our game, and with Kyle on the guys team, we actually lose.
“Are あなた on like, the team at your school または some thing?” Cali asks.
“No. Me, Josh, Lana and Skylar always used to play. With some practice, we actually got good.” Kyle answers.
“Well, you’re really good.” Malirie says.
“Okay, who wants some thing to drink?” I ask. Every one says they want some thing to drink. “Well, if あなた think I’m getting it for you, you’re crazy.” I say.
Every on walks to my van; I open the back end and ask, “Red bull, Water, または Gatorade?” I grab myself a Gatorade and chug some down. People grab what they want, and then we head back down to the beach. Josh runs up.
“Jordan can’t make it, her and her boyfriend have mono.” He says.
“Aw.” Me and Lana says, disappointed that we can’t see one of our old friends.
“Are we gonna swim または what?” Chad asks after some silence.
“Sure!” All of us girls say and take our tank tops and shorts off. Kyle and Josh take off their shirts, and me and Lana exchange an oh-my-god-they-are-really-buff look.
Chandler comes up and hugs me from behind. “Are あなた ready to get wet?” He says.
Before I even get to answer, he lifts me up and takes me in to the water with him. I start laughing. He splashes me with water, and then every one starts splashing water every which way, which gets us soaked. I fall backwards and slam right into Kyle.
“Ooops. Sorry Kyle.” I say.
“No problem.” He says, and splashes me, I splash him and run away to Chandler.
He pulls me close and all the chaos and noise around us disappears. Lana splashes me, and I come back, “Oh, its on now Lana!” I say, and me and Chandler gang up on her.
“Hey! Stop beatin up my girl!” Chad says, coming up and starting to splash us with water too. Chandler gives up and scoops me up in his arms. He runs to 海岸, ショア and throws me in the sand.
“You fucker! あなた got sand in my hair!” I say.
“Let me get that out for you.” He says, and licks my cheek. I laugh and push him away from me.
I grab a towel and go to one of the showers they have on the beach. Once I rinse the sand off of me and dry myself, I put my flip flops on and go to the 火災, 火 pit. I start shivering.
“You cold?” Kyle asks.
“Yeah, a little.” I say.
“Well, give me a lighter and I’ll start the fire.” He says.
“In my van, come on.” I say as I stand up and brush the sand off of my butt.
“It would help if あなた put on some clothes.” Kyle suggests. I pick up my clothes and put them on over 上, ページのトップへ of my wet bikini. “Oh. I guess it wouldn’t help.” He says.
“Yeah. Whatever, follow me.” I say.
“So what’s new with you?” He asks.
“Well, I’m captain of my cheerleading team, I quit doing pageants, and I barely see my parents because I’m always hanging out with my フレンズ and my boyfriend.” I say.
“How long have あなた and your boyfriend been together?” He asks.
“A 年 または two.” I say.
“How have Nick and Hailey been?” Kyle asks.
“Good. They’re both in college now, all moved out so it’s just me left…… and like I said, I don’t do any thing with my parents and they’re never around when I’m around……. Usually.” I say.
“Aw. Well, I’m sorry about your parents, but why did あなた quit pageants?” He asks. “
You know, you’re the first one to ask that. I guess it was because I didn’t want to get made fun of for going to pageants, and every one would call me ugly and I would get shot または no one would accept me, even if I am rich.” I say. We’re at my バン now. “Hop in on the other side, we’re gonna have to look around because I really have no clue where the lighter is.” I say, opening the driver side door and jumping into the car.
Kyle sits in the passenger seat. “I’ll look in the back, あなた look up here.” I say. Kyle nods and I go to the back of my バン and start looking, while we look, Kyle talks to me.
“Are Nick and Hailey coming ホーム for Memorial Day?” He asks.
“Yeah, I don’t know when, but I think they’ll call and tell me when they’re coming.” I say.
“Are あなた guys having a picnic?” He asks.
“I think so…… Do あなた and Josh want to come?” I ask.
“Aren’t your フレンズ going?” He asks.
“I don’t know, they all have family.” I say. “What about Chandler?” He asks.
“Um…. I don’t want him to meet my parents yet.” I say.
“Why not?” He asks.
“I don’t know.” I say.
“I found the lighter.” Kyle says.
“Okay, I’m gonna fold out this ソファー, ソファ and grab some blankets.” I say.
“Let me help.” He says, coming to the back of the バン and unfolding the couch. “Wanna know what I think?” Kyle says.
“What?” I ask.
“I think あなた don’t want Chandler to meet your parents because you’re unsure of your feelings for him, and that even though あなた may say ‘I 愛 you’ to him, あなた only say it because he says it to you.” He says.
I sigh. “Even after all these years, you’re one of the few people that can read me like a book.” I say.
“I can’t help it, if you’ve known some one for years, it just is some thing あなた notice.” He says.
“What else do あなた notice?” I ask.
“That あなた want to キッス me as much as I want to キッス you, but you’re afraid because あなた think that if あなた do, it will make あなた think about things that you’re afraid to think about.” He says.
“Wow.” I say, embarrassed that he knows that. “Make your move.” I say to Kyle.
He leans in, and in, and in, and I lean in, and in, and in. And we kiss. His キッス is different from Chandler’s. Chandler is always rough and taking charge, Kyle is firm but cautious, and he lets me choose if I want to keep going または to stop, and I want to keep going, but I stop and say, “Wow. Um……. What now?” I ask.
“We go light that 火災, 火 and pretend this never happened.” Kyle says. We hop out of my バン and walk back to the 火災, 火 pit in silence. Chandler rushes up to me and throws me over his shoulder.
“Oh my god Chandler!” I say.
“What?” He shouts, running toward the water.
“I just got wet, please set me down?!” I say.
“Fine, but あなた have to give me a kiss!” He says.
“Fine!” I say. He sets me down and dives into the kiss.
“There あなた go, now I have to help Kyle start the fire, and then I have to call my brother and sister, so I have to go.” I say.
“Fine. But I’ll miss you.” He says.
“I’ll miss あなた too, but I’ll be right back.” I say, and runs back to the 火災, 火 pit where Kyle is lighting it up. I pull out my phone.
“I’m gonna talk to my siblings.” I say to Kyle.
I dial my sisters number first and put it on speaker.
“Hello?” Hailey says after the 秒 ring.
“Hey sis! When are あなた coming to visit?” I ask.
“I can’t come home, they scheduled SATS for Monday, and I have to study.” She says.
“Oh. Well I guess I’ll let あなた study.” I say.
“No! I wanna know how my little sister is doing. How are things with mom and Dad?” She asks.
“I don’t see them または talk to them.” I say.
“Well how about with Chandler?” She asks.
“Things are okay.” I say.
“Good! Well I have to go now because I’m at the drive through getting some thing to eat, I’ll call あなた later, bye!” She says and hangs up.
I call Nick.
“Yo!”He says after the first ring.
“Yo!” I say back.
“What up Lil sis? あなた didn’t get knocked up または any thing, did you?” Nick says.
“No, I did not get knocked up.” I say.
“Good. Are あなた and what’s his face doing any thing I should cut his nuts off for?” He asks.
I laugh. “No, but he wants to.” I say.
“Well just remember to use protection if あなた decide to fuck him.” My brother says. I look and Kyle who gives me a Ew look, and I laugh.
“Are あなた coming ホーム this weekend?” I ask.
“No, my car got wrecked and I won’t be able to get it fixed til Wednesday.” He says.
“Oh. あなた and Hailey both aren’t coming, this totally sucks!” I say.
“I’m sorry Lil Sis, I’ll try to make it up to you. I gotta go though, so I’ll call あなた tomorrow, bye!” He says.
“Bye.” I say, and he hangs up.
“That was awkward.” Kyle says.
“Yeah, and it sucks that Hailey and Nick aren’t coming ホーム this weekend.” I say.
“Yeah, I was really looking フォワード, 前進, 楽しみにして to seeing them again. Do あなた still wanna go to the picnic if Nick and Hailey both aren’t gonna be there?” Kyle asks.
“I promised I would go, and あなた and Josh might be coming, so I’ll at least have people to talk to.” I say.
“Skylar!” Chandler says, running up to me and Kyle. “Can あなた go swimming now?” He asks.
“The suns about to set, あなた know how much I 愛 to watch that.” I say.
“Watch it from the water.” He says.
I hesitate. Chandler lifts me up and takes me into the water.
“Thanks for letting me make my own choice.” I shout agitatedly. Chandler is really pissing me off, and I have no clue why.
“Skylar!” Kyle shouts. I turn.
“Yeah?” I ask.
“Your mom’s on the phone!” He says. I run to 海岸, ショア and take the phone from Kyle.
“Hello?” I say.
“Hi Skylar, where are you?” My mom asks.
“Um…. I’m at the ビーチ with my friends, we’re having a bonfire.” I say.
“When are あなた going to be home?” She asks.
“Some time tomorrow, we always spend the night at the beach, every one was talking about going to Las Vegas, so we might do that tomorrow.” I say.
“To go shopping?” My mom asks.
“Yeah, well, usually.” I say.
“Would あなた mind if I came along?” She asks.
“Um, I guess not, but why would あなた want to? あなた have to work.” I say.
“I’ll take the 日 off, just call me when あなた and your フレンズ are going to go.” She says.
“Okay Mom, bye.” I say and hang up before she says some thing else out of character. “That was weird.” I say to Kyle.
“What, your mom doesn’t call you?” He asks.
“No, she never calls me, ever.” I say.
“Um, I have no clue what to tell you.” He says.
“Yo!” Mike says, running up to me. “Do あなた got any ビール in あなた van?” He asks.
“I think so, go ahead and check.” I say.
“You drink?” Kyle asks in shock.
“Oh don’t act like あなた don’t!” I say.
“I’ve actually have been sober for a few weeks.” He says.
“Really? I’ma try not to drink tonight too, so あなた don’t feel left out.” I say.
“Thanks.” He says.
“Oh, look the suns setting.” I say.
We watch the sun set, and every one comes to the 火災, 火 and dries off.
“Any body want a beer?” Mike shouts, carrying a whole case of bud light with him.
“No thanks.” I say.
My female フレンズ look at me like I’m crazy, but then they say no too. I ラップ myself in a blanket, and Chandler comes over, cracks open his beer, and sits down 次 to me.
“Come here.” He says, opening his arms.
I lean my head on his shoulder and he wraps his arms around me.
“Skylar, can we please have a word with you?” Lana says.
“Sure.” I say and stand up.
“Lets go for a walk.” Malirie says. We walk to my van, and sit inside.
“What’s going on? Some thing happened, didn’t it?” Lana says.
“Come on, we’re your best friends, tell us.” Cali says.
“Well, me and Kyle kind of kissed.” I say.
“I knew it!!!” Malirie says. “What?” I ask, confused. “I knew Kyle liked あなた the 秒 he walked up to us.” Malirie says.
“Now the only 質問 left is, do あなた like him?” Lana asks.
“Yes……. No……. I don’t know.” I say.
“You have a boyfriend, Skylar.” Cali says.
“I know, I know I have a boyfriend. It’s just…….” I trail off, not knowing how to say it.
“It’s just what? あなた don’t 愛 Chandler? You’re gonna let Kyle 雲, クラウド your feelings about a guy you’ve been with for two years? That‘s so stupid!” Lana says.
“Okay, that was a little harsh, Lana. Maybe Skylar is confused about how she feels about Chandler because Kyle comes up, sweet Kyle that she’s known for years, kisses her, and now she doesn’t know who she likes.” Cali says.
“That’s true, but I do 愛 Chandler, I do. It’s just that….. Kyle I’ve known for years, but he’s older now, so he’s new to me, and Chandler is old and predictable, if he did some thing different for a change, it’d be fine.” I say.
“What ever.” Lana says.
“What the fuck is your problem? Are あなた about to get your period または some thing because you’re being a 雌犬 about this when you’re her friend and あなた should be supportive no matter what Skylar does.” Cali says to Lana. Lana doesn’t say any thing.
“Any way Skylar, why don’t we go back to the bonfire?” Malirie suggests. I nod, and we walk back to the bonfire where the guys are already drunk.
“Babe!” Chandler says, running up to me and catching me in a big くま, クマ hug, lifting my feet off of the ground.
“Oh my god, can あなた put me down?” I say. He sets me on my feet.
“Jeez, I’m just playing with you, are あなた on your period または some thing and that’s why あなた don’t want to do any thing?” He asks. I roll my eyes.
“You’re such a dick Chandler.” Lana says.
“What do あなた have to say to me?” Chandler says, puffing up and getting in Lana’s face. Chad comes up.
“Dude stop. Don’t go after my girl.” He says.
Chandler throws a パンチ at Chad’s face, misses, and hit me instead.
“Ow Chandler!” I shout at him.
“Honey, I’m sorry.” He says, coming near me. I cringe back.
“Stay away from me.” I say.
Kyle comes up as do all my friends, we all face Chandler.
“Are あなた okay?” Kyle asks. I look at him, and then back to Chandler.
“My face hurts.” I say.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to.” Chandler says.
“It’s over Chandler, go home.” I say, and turn to go back to my van, but Chandler grabs my arm.
“You can’t break up with me.” He says.
“That’s what I’m doing right now. Let me go.” I say. He tightens his grip. “Ow!” I shout. All the guys come up and get Chandler away from me. “I’m going home, I’m sorry.” I say to my friends.
“We’ll come with you.” Kyle says.
“Okay.” I say. Every one gets in my van, and Kyle, Josh and Hannah get in their バン and follow us to my house.
“We’re staying in the guest house.” I say.
“I gotta go home, mom will be wondering where Hannah is.” Josh says.
“Okay, see あなた later.” I say. I lead the way to the guest house, and give a tour.
“All of us girls will sleep in here, あなた guys can sleep in the room 次 door.” I say.
“I have to be in a room full of drunk guys?” Kyle says.
“You can stay with us.” Cali says.
“Thanks.” He says and follows us into the girls guest room.
“Whoever has to take a shower, go ahead. Some one can go to the house and take a shower, and some one can take a シャワー here.” I say.
“You can take a シャワー here, I’ll take a シャワー in your room, and I’ll grab our bags from earlier so we’ll have clean clothes to change into.” Lana says.
“Thanks.” I say and go in the bathroom and take my shower. I get out and dry off, I pop my head out the door, and Lana hands me my bag of stuff. I change into one of my Abercrombie shirts, and a pairs of shorts. I walk out and then Cali goes in.
“I take it Malirie went to my room and is taking a shower?” I ask Lana.
“Yeah.” She says. I nod and turn on some music. Skyway Avenue によって We the Kings starts playing, and me and Lana sing along:
‘She 発言しました lets change our luck, this night is all we’ve got, drive fast until we crash, this dead end life. Sweet dreams that won’t come true, I’d leave it all for あなた brick walls are closing in lets make a run tonight blinded, によって the light, hold あなた through forever won’t let あなた go cuz if あなた jump I will jump too we will fall together from the buildings ledge never looking back at what we’ve done, we’ll say it was love, cuz I would die for あなた on sky way avenue!! She 発言しました don’t change your mind, lets leave this town behind we’ll race right off the cliff they will, remember this it all got so mundane, with あなた I’m back again, just take me によって the hand we’re close to the edge, blinded, によって the light hold あなた through forever won’t let あなた go cuz if あなた jump I will jump too we will fall together from the buildings ledge never looking back at what we’ve done, we’ll say it was 愛 cuz I would die for あなた on sky way avenue, where are your guts to fly?! Soaring through, through the night…… and if you, take that last stand I’ll follow あなた leave the edge and we’ll fly we’re finally alive! Cuz if あなた jump I will jump too we will fall together from the buildings ledge never looking back at what we’ve done, we’ll say it was love, cuz I would die for あなた on sky way avenue! So what’s left to prove, we have made it through!’
Me and Lana shout the song at the 上, ページのトップへ of our lungs. “That’s a good song.” Kyle says when we finish. “You guys are good singers too.” He adds.
“Thank you.” Lana says.
I walk over, and I キッス him スマック on the lips. He twists his fingers in my hair and I twist mine in his. Lana clears her throat.
“Don’t forget that I’m in here!” Lana, Malirie, and Cali shout.
“Does this mean あなた guys are together now? Because I think Kyle is way better than Chandler.” Mike says from the door way. I look at Kyle, and he shrugs.
I say, “Yeah, we’re together now.”
“Awesome! Welcome to the group!” Mike says, Bro hugging Kyle. My phone chimes, and every one looks at me.
“It’s from Chandler, he says, look out the window.” I say.
We all slowly turn to the window to see Chandler standing there, looking at me. Lana walks over and locks the door and closes the curtains.
“We need to lock this place up. He’s drunk so he’s gonna do some thing crazy.” Lana says. We go all over the guest house and lock every thing up. I even grab some hockey sticks and baseball bats. Every one is standing in the living room when my phone rings. I look at the screen.
“It’s Chandler.” I choke out.
“Answer it, but put it on speaker.” Lana suggests. I nod and do as she says.
“Hello?” I say.
“You can’t get rid of me that easily. You’re gonna have to talk to me some time.” He says.
“How about when you’re sober, because right now you’re really creepy.” I say.
“You can’t break up with me! And I’m not leaving until あなた come out and talk to me!” He shouts.
“I’m gonna call the cops.” I say.
“No あなた won’t.” He says.
“Can I use some one’s phone?” I ask. Lana hands me her phone, and I dial 911 and put it on speaker.
“911, what’s your emergency?” The operator says.
“Um, my ex-boyfriend is stalking me, he’s out side, and none of me and my フレンズ can go, we’re trapped in here.” I say.
“Is he armed?” The operator asks.
“No, but he did パンチ me in the face, and he’s drunk so we don’t know what he’s gonna do.” I say.
Chandler starts banging on the door, and the operator tells me that the police are on their way, and I tell her where we are.
“I’m not leaving Skylar!” He yells.
“The cops are on their way.” I say back.
“No they’re not, あなた faked it!” He shouts. I hear sirens approaching, but he doesn’t stop banging on the door.
“Put あなた hands up!” A male voice says.
The banging on the door stops, and I look out the window to see Chandler being put in to hand cuffs. I unlock the door and every one walks out of the house to talk to the cop. He says that Chandler will be kept until his mother comes to get him. We go back inside, and check all the locks.
“Why are we doing this if he’s gone?” Cali asks.
“Because he could come back when we’re sleeping. We’re all sleeping in the guys room because it doesn’t have a big window. Lets turn out al the lights.” Lana says.
We meet back in the living room and I say, “Lets get some thing to eat.” We go in the kitchen, make pop corn, and grab some chips and pop. Lana grabs our shopping bags, and we go into the guys room. He turns to me and says, “Are あなた okay?”
“I feel bad about what happened.” I say.
“It wasn’t your fault.” He says.
“It feels that way.” I say.
“It was Chandler’s fault. He messed up, he was drinking. あなた didn’t do any thing.” Kyle says.
“Thanks. But I’m still worried some things gonna happen.” I say.
“Me too.” He says.
I get up and lie down 次 to Kyle. We finish watching the rest of the movie, and I fall asleep on Kyle’s chest. I have a very weird dream. It’s basically these creeps chasing me, and me and this black lady blow them up with a bomb. I wake up to sunlight streaming into the small window, and I roll over to see Kyle, peaceful in his sleep. I ease his arm off from around my shoulder, and go into the キッチン and grab a red bull. I sit on the living room couch, and stare at nothingness. I blink, and check my phone. Ten new texts, and three new voice messages, all from Chandler.
First text: ‘Babe, I’m sorry about last night. I’m sorry I hit you. Call me?’
Second text: ‘Please call me, lets sort things out, I miss you.’
Third text: ‘Why are あなた even mad?’
Fourth text: ‘You’re such a slut! You’re probably fucking some one and that’s why あなた aren’t replying to my texts.’
Fifth text: ‘I take that beck. I didn’t mean it.’
Sixth Text: ‘Call me, please?’
Seventh text: ‘Come on, あなた can’t stay mad forever!’
Eighth text: ‘This is just a little fight, right? We’re not really over, are we?’
Ninth Text: ‘If あなた don’t reply, I’m gonna call you.’
Tenth Text: ‘That’s it. I’m calling you.’
And the voice messages are:
Message one: ‘Hey, lets talk. Seriously, there is no way we’re over. Just, I don’t know, meet me some where? I don’t know. Text me when あなた get listen to this and we’ll figure out a place to meet. I really want to be with you.’
Message Two: ‘I’m at the beach, meet me here.’
Message three: ‘Um, I thought あなた would answer this time but…… any ways, please meet me at the beach? Lets talk this out. I 愛 you.’
Those last three words sting my heart, and I listen to his voice mails again. I listen to them about five times before I text him and say, ‘Are あなた still at the beach?’ Instantly, I get a reply. ‘Yes! Meet me here?’ I say, ‘Give me twenty minutes, and I’ll be there.’ I get up off of the couch, and got to the bathroom. The パンチ on my face looks horrible, it’s bruised and swollen. I change my clothes, brush my hair, brush my teeth, change my tampon, and then I grab the keys to my van, and sneak out the door. I call my sister on the way to the beach, no answer so I just ask her to call me back because I need to tell her a lot.
I pull in to the parking lot at the beach, throw on a jacket, and hop out of my car, with the door open and he keys in the ignition, just in case. There’s a breeze, and I pull my ジャケット in to keep myself warm. He’s sitting at the 火災, 火 pit, watching me approach. I stop short, not getting too close.
“I’m sorry about last night.” He says.
“I know あなた are, but that doesn’t change things.” I say. He looks at my face, where he punched me.
“I did that.” He says, letting guilt wash over him. It’s painful to watch, but I keep myself composed.
“If あなた brought me here just so あなた can apologize, あなた did, so can I leave?” I say.
“I want to talk about this. I want to be with あなた still.” He says.
“How about あなた stop drinking? I can tell you’re hung over, and it probably hurts your eyes being out in the sun, so why don’t あなた drive yourself home, and recover. We can talk when you’re feeling better.” I say.
“No. I want to talk now.” He croaks.
I sigh. “Get in your car, and go home.” I say.
“I walked here.” He says.
He walked here, just for me? Oh my god. I blink back tears that are forming, and try to calm down.
“Do あなた need a ride home?” I say with out thinking.
“Please?” He says. I turn and trudge back to my van. Chandler jogs to keep up with me, and gets in the passenger side.
“I-” He begins, but I cut him off.
“If あなた talk at all the whole time that I’m driving, I will throw あなた out of the car without slowing down.” I say.
He swallows, and stays silent. After a little bit, I twist my hands on the steering wheel and notice that I’m still wearing the promise ring he gave me last year. I take it off my finger and hand it to him.
“Here.” I say.
“Keep it. Some thing to remind あなた of me.” He says.
“I can’t do this!” I say, slamming my feet on the breaks.
“What?” He asks.
“Get out.” I say.
“But-” He says.
“I 発言しました get out!” I shout.
He gets out of my van, and I drive away. I stop at Tim Horton’s, and park my car. I put the ring back on my finger, and then I cry in my car for a good ten minutes, then I calm myself down, get out, and buy every one breakfast; Bagels, eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, doughnuts, coffee and オレンジ juice.
When I get back to the guest house, every one is up, and is wondering where I was.
“I’m fine! I went to pick up breakfast.” I say.
“We were worried that he got あなた while we were asleep.” Lana says.
“Jeez, I’m fine, and he’s not that crazy.” I say.
I grab some plates and give every one some food, coffee and オレンジ juice.
“Wow, are あなた trying to make us gain a hundred pounds?!” Cali asks.
“Shut up, あなた know あなた guys will eat it.” I say.
“She’s right. And plus, this stuff is damn good!” Mike says.
“Thanks. I guess I made the right choice.” I say.
My phone chimes, and I look at it. It’s from Chandler, but I say to my friends, “It’s my sister. I hope she’s saying she’s coming ホーム and that Nick’s coming ホーム too.” I say. I look at my phone, ‘Are あなた missing me yet?’ He says. ‘I’m with Kyle now! Leave me alone and let me sort things out!’ I say. ‘Break up with him and go out with me again!’ He says. ‘I’m about to break up with him and go out with neither of you, so stop bothering me.’ I say, and he doesn’t text back.
Kyle comes up and says, “Are あなた feeling okay?” I nod, and he opens his arms, knowing that I’m not okay.
I step into his embrace, and for a long time neither of us moves, and the entire room is quiet. Then we come apart, and every thing goes back to normal. I remember about the picture of me and Chandler that Lana took, and I take out my phone and look at it. I hit send picture and I send it to Chandler, for the message I put, ‘I miss you, but I can’t be with あなた the way あなた are. Lana took this picture yesterday, I decided to send it to you. I’m keeping it on my phone, to remember what we were. I’d really like to be friends, if that’s okay with you.’ I send the picture to Chandler, and he texts back, ‘Wow. Thanks for the picture, and yeah, I think I can be your friend.’ I answer, ‘Okay. Your welcome. And によって the way, you’re easier to deal with when you’re not drunk, so why don’t あなた stop drinking? It’s healthy and there’s other things あなた can do other than drink.’
I get a text, from Lana. I look at her and she urges me to read it and not say any thing to her out loud. Her message says: ‘Chandler just texted me saying thanks for taking that picture. He’s talking about the one I took yesterday, isn’t he?’ I answer: ‘Yeah. He texted me ten times this morning, I didn’t answer them, then he called three times, and they are all on voicemail. I met him at the ビーチ and we talked about stuff. He’s texting me, too.’ Her phone chimes at the same time mine does, and we laugh. It’s a text from Chandler it says: ‘I’ll try it. How is the Group?’ He says. ‘I think they’re all still freaked out about last night, and are wondering what’s going on with me.’ I say, and my phone chimes, a text from Lana: ‘What r u tlkin bout wit him now?’ I type a quick answer, that we’re talking about the Group, about being just friends, and about how he should stop drinking.
My phone chimes, a message from Chandler, ‘How are あなた about what happened last night?’ He asks. I answer that I’m still a little wound up about it, I can’t believe it happened, and that my face looks horrible. Lana texts me asking me to フォワード, 前進, 楽しみにして her the messages, and I start with the ones I got this morning that I didn’t reply to, and then I sent her our whole conversation that we’re having right now. She texts me ‘Aw. He really want あなた back, and あなた really miss him!’ I answer yes, and that it’s not a good thing. She nods at me in agreement, and then I say out loud,
“Who wants to go to Vegas today? We’re gonna go shopping. And my mom is coming.”
“You’re gonna need all the support あなた can get!” Malirie says.
“I’m in.” Cali says.
My girls all nod in agreement, and Kyle, Chad, and Mike say that they want to go too.
“I can’t go, my family is going on vacation for two days. I have to leave soon.” Mark says.
“That sucks.” Cali says.
“I think we should all go into another room now so あなた guys can say good bye.” I say.
Every one goes in to the guys room , and my phone rings. I look at the caller ID, and see that it’s my brother calling.
“Hey Bro.” I say.
“Hey Lil sis. Hailey told me あなた texted her and 発言しました あなた have to tell her a lot of stuff. What’s going on?” He asks, getting right to the point.
“We in short, Chandler got drunk and 発言しました some rude stuff to me. Lana called him a dick, and he got all up in her face, Chad got in between them, and Chandler went to パンチ Chad in the face. He missed, and hit me in the face.” I say.
“What?! I’ma kick that bitches 尻, お尻 when I can come home!” Nick says.
Ever since Nick went to college, he’s adapted a wigger way of speaking, and probably of dressing. But he’s not all big and bad like he thinks he is, and he could probably get really hurt.
“I broke up with him. We had to call the cops. He’s probably in enough shit already, あなた don’t need to beat him up.” I say.
“Okay, well I’ma let あなた do what ever あなた were doing before I called. I’ll call あなた later lil sis.” Nick says and hangs up.
“It was my brother, he wanted to know what happened last night.” I say to the people looking at me quizzically. Every one nods, and Cali walks in.
“Mark left.” She says.
“Okay, lets go to my actual house and change, then we can go shopping in Vegas, with my mom.” I say.
“I don’t have any clothes to change into.” Kyle says.
“Neither do I.” Chad says.
“Or me.” Mike adds.
“Um….. I have some of Chandler’s clothes in my room, they’re clean. あなた guys can just pick some thing out, he clothes will probably fit you.” I say sheepishly.
They’re probably wondering why I have Chandler’s clothes, but they don’t need to know, because there’s nothing to tell. He just spent the night and left is clothes at my house a few times. We grab our shopping bags from yesterday and go out side to my house, and up the stairs. “His clothes are over there.” I say to the guys, pointing to where Chandler’s pile of clothes were.
“Not to be weird of any thing, Skylar, but your room smells like Chandler.” Malirie says.
“Well he was in here yesterday morning.” I say.
“Did he take a シャワー here, because his running clothes are on the floor.” Lana says, poking her head out of my bath room.
“Yeah, he came over after he did his morning run, took a shower, changed his clothes, straightened his hair.” I say.
“With your straightener?” Lana asks.
“Yes.” I say.
“Okay. I’m going to change my clothes, and straighten my hair.” Lana says. I nod, and she closes the bath room door.
“I have a bath room down stairs if some one wants to go down there and change.” I say.
“Us girls usually change in front of each other and not care, it’s cuz Kyle’s here.” Cali says.
“Well duh! I wouldn’t want to change in front of a stranger.” Malirie says. “Kyle, turn around so we can change.” Cali says.
“He’s seen us in bikini’s it’s practically the same thing.” I say.
“Unless you’re wearing a thong.” Cali says. Oh, we’re all wearing thongs, I get it now.
“Kyle, あなた should really check out the inside of my closet.” I say, leading Kyle to my walk-in closet, turning on the light and saying, “Sorry, but あなた don’t need to see them in thongs.” I say.
“It’s cool.” He says and closes the door.
Great, now he’s gonna go through my clothes and find my under wear! We all change. Malirie borrows my Justin Bieber shirt, and Lana’s white shorts. Lana wears her new short-sleeved Hollister hoodie, and baby blue shorts. Cali wears a lacey tank 上, ページのトップへ and jean shorts, and I wear my one of my new Abercrombie shirts, and a pairs of purple jean shorts. We all wear white flip flops. Every one files down stairs and in to the kitchen, where my mom is sitting, 読書 the newspaper. What is it with old people and news papers? I will never under stand.
“Hey mom. We’re ready to go to Vegas when あなた are.” I say.
“Okay. Let me just get my 財布 and I’ll be set.” She says.
“That’s what I forgot!” Malirie says. All the girls go up stairs, grab our purses and sun glasses, and meet every one down stairs at the door way.
“Which car?” I ask.
“Mercedes!” Cali says.
“Oh don’t be ridiculous!” My mom says.
“What?” I ask, how dare my mother say she doesn‘t want to ride in my car!!!!
“We can’t fit every one in to your Mercedes, let me get our butler, and he can drive us in the limo.” My mom says.
“We have a butler, and a limo?” I ask.
“Yes, we always have.” She says, pressing the intercom button and telling who ever our butler is to drive the car out front. We walk out side and sure enough, a limo is waiting and there’s an old gray-haired guy holding open the car door.
Every one climbs in the limo, and Mom tells the butler/ driver, “To Las Vegas.” And we’re off. Kyle laces his fingers through mine, and we settle in for a two 時 ride. About ten 分 in to the ride, my phone chimes and I know that it’s a text from Chandler. ‘Can we hang out? All of us? または do あなた think that every one would hate me and not want to?’ He asks. ‘We’re on our way to Vegas, remember? We did have plans.’ I text to him. ‘I forgot all about it!!! I doubt that I’d be going any ways, after what I did.’ He replies. I answer: ‘Yeah. At least あなた feel bad about it……. Maybe every one will still talk to あなた on Wednesday, I mean yeah, あなた did hit me, but あなた didn’t mean to.’ I hit send, and then I say, “Um, butler person, can あなた pull over? I’d like to drive.” I say.
“Don’t be ridiculous! He can drive!” My mom says. “I want to drive.” I say, then to Butler I say, “Please, pull over now so I can drive.” This guy is getting passed によって every one because he’s driving so slow. It’s time to see how fast this thing can go. Butler obliges and pulls over on the side of the road, and gets in the passenger seat. I hop out and get in the drivers seat. I pull into the fast lane, and check out how high the speedometer will go. 150 miles per hour, almost as fast as my Jaguar and my Mercedes. I lead foot it and push the speedometer to 75, then 76, and so on. Soon we’re cruising at 100 miles per hour, and I turn on the cruise control. My phone rings, and I put it on speaker and set it on the dashboard.
“Hello?” I say.
“Hi Skylar, Nick just told me what happened! Are あなた okay?” Hailey says.
“Yes. I’m fine. Me, my フレンズ and Mom are on our way to Vegas right now.” I say.
“You’re going shopping with mom? Who’s driving?” Hailey asks.
“Well, our butler was but-”
“We have a butler?” Hailey asks.
“Apparently.…….. Any ways, I’m driving now, I have it cruising at a hundred miles an hour.” I say.
“Which car are あなた using?” She asks.
“Oh, did I mention we have a limo?” I say.
“We have a limo? Since when?” She asks.
“I don’t know. Talk to mom.” I say, handing my phone to my mother, and continuing driving.
“Hello Hailey.” My mom says.
“When did we get a butler, and when did we get a limo?” My sister interrogates her right away.
“Why is this such a shock to every one? We’ve had him for years.” My mom says.
I hear Hailey sigh. “Just let me talk to Skylar again.” She says, my mom hands the phone back to me.
“Okay, so any ways where were we?” Hailey says to me.
“Idk, I’m driving. We’re about an 時 and fifteen 分 away from Las Vegas.” I say.
“If I know あなた as well as I think I do, you’ll be there in forty- five minutes.” She says.
“That’s only if I take the cruise control off and lead foot it until the speedometer reaches one-twenty five, または at the most, one- fifty.” I say.
“Can あなた still talk to me if あなた do that?” She asks.
“Hold on.” I say to her. “Butler, can あなた hold my phone please?” I say. He takes the phone from my hands, I take the limo off cruise control and continue talking to my sister.
“So how is the studying for the SATS going?” I ask.
“It’s going good. I’m taking a four 時 break because I’m talking to you, and then I have to go to class.” She says.
“Wow. あなた have class even thought it’s memorial 日 weekend?” I say.
“Yeah, that’s college for you.” My sister says.
“I thought you’d like to know….. I’m driving at one hundred thirty miles per hour, and I’m setting it on cruise control.” I say to my sister, and every one else.
“Damn! I think I just saw my life flash before my eyes!” Mike says in the back seat.
“Nope, those are just trees.” Lana says. Every one, including my mother and my sister, laughs.
“Who is that?” Hailey asks.
“Oh, that’s just one of my friends. His name is Mike. It’s me, Mike, Lana, Malirie, Cali, and Chad.” I say.
“Oh. Okay. Well, I have to go now because I have class in five minutes.” Hailey says.
“Okay, say bye to Hailey every one!” I say.
We all say good bye, and I hang up and take the limo off cruise control. I push the gas harder, making the car go it’s maximum speed, and then I keep going at that speed for the 次 few miles. In under an hour, we see the signs for Las Vegas, and in the 次 ten minutes, we’re parking our limo in a motel parking lot, and walking the streets of Nevada.
We all walk with arms interlocked, and my mom asks, “Which store do あなた guys want to go to first?”
“Um, we usually just go into every store and see what they have.” I say.
“Lets go into this one.” Cali says. We all go into a store that has many dresses, purses, and shoes.
“Why are we in here?” I ask.
“We do have prom coming up. We can find a dress for it.” Cali says brightly.
“And shoes.” Lana adds.
“What kind of dress do あなた guys need to wear?” My mom asks.
“Any thing.” I say, already browsing through the dresses.
“I think this one would look good on me, what do あなた think Skylar?” Lana says, holding up a powder ピンク dress with sequins and beading all over. The 上, ページのトップへ seemed like it would hug your waist and the bottom came out like a ball gown.
“I think that あなた should try it on to see if あなた like it on you.” I suggest.
“Okay. I’ll wait for あなた guys though.” Lana says.
“Why don’t あなた look at some shoes to go with the dress so あなた can see how it looks in a complete out fit.” My mom says. Lana nods and goes to the shoe section.
“Are we going to prom?” Kyle asks me.
“I don’t know about you, but I’m going.” I say.
“Well, where あなた go, I go.” He says. I laugh and continue looking at the dresses.
“What about this one?” I say to Kyle. I pull the dress off the rack and 表示する it to him. It’s a baby blue dress with thin straps, a slit down the front of the bust with a plain blue patch in the middle so that my stomach isn’t exposed and the rest of the dress is covered in glitter and sequins.
“I think that that is perfect and that あなた need to put it on.” Kyle says.
“Mom, can あなた find some shoes to go with this dress?” I say to my mother, who is already on her way to find a pair for me.
“Are we ready to try on the dresses?” Lana asks, coming up carrying a box of shoes, and her dress. I nod, and we all go into a dressing room and change into our dresses. The dress I picked is really cute on. It hugs my waist, and then it flows away from my hips, and goes to the ground.
Cali gets a white sparkly dress, and Malirie ends up with a very cute royal blue dress with black レース over 上, ページのトップへ of it. And the strangest thing of all? My mom paid for it all- and when the cashier 発言しました that it all costed ten thousand dollars, I thought she was going to yell at us and tell us to get some thing else, but she paid for it with out even batting an eye.
“You really didn’t have to do that, Mom.” I say when we leave the store.
“How about あなた let your mother spoil あなた and your friends?” My mom says. I don’t say any thing else, I just walk in silence with every one else, holding Kyle’s hand.
“Who wants to go to Calvin Cleins?” I say when I see that it is the 次 store.
We all turn and head in to the store. All the girls head to the under wear section where there is a lot of cute bras and thongs. We all grab a few bras and thongs, and I expect my mom to say some thing about us wearing thongs, but she surprises me again によって not saying any thing about them.
Every one heads for the cash registers, and my mom says, “You guys can get もっと見る than that.” So every one heads back and takes a look around the store. I decide to get some perfume, a white button-up, black skinny jeans, and a ruffled fuchsia ホルター top. Every one else grabs some other stuff too, and again my mom pays for it. I don’t say any thing, since she told me to let her spoil us. We do some もっと見る shopping at Gucci, Chanel, and various other stores. We end up lugging a ton of bags back to the limo, and I let the butler drive because I’m really tired.
As the butler pulls out of the lot, I rest my head on Kyle’s shoulder, and fall
