"Alex! Alex, come out here we need to talk." I heard Ryan say through the door. I didn't want to. Not after what had just happened, mine and my best friend's boyfriend got in a fist fight over me.
"No!" I said through a wall of tears. "You promised me this wouldn't happen again, you promised and you broke that promise. I can't handle this." I started crying even more and heard a key working its way to get the door unlocked.
"I'm coming in, I need new clothes and I'll get all cleaned up." Ryan said opening the door. I was on his bed so I went under the covers and cried into his pillow. I couldn't help myself, I've never cried this much in my life, let alone in one day.
"Just go away I don't want to talk to you." I heard the bathroom door close so I came out from under the covers.
"Alex I'm sorry. He just pissed me off with the whole kissing thing. I'm sorry I broke that promise, and I won't make another one unless I know for sure that I can keep it. Like I promise that I love you and will never stop loving you." I had no idea what to say so I just got up and ran out the door, down through the lobby, and to the beach. But I didn't stop running there. I was running for almost a half hour. When I stopped I just collapsed to the ground and closed my eyes.
That night a pair of two muscular arms picked me up and laid me in their lap. I decided just to stay there and let myself rest. I needed it and wasn't about to put more disappointment in my life.
When I woke up the next morning I was in a bed. Not in mine and not in Ryan's. Whose house was I at? I got out of the bed and noticed that I was still in my dress and flats. I walked out of the room and down a hallway. I soon found myself in a kitchen with a boy sitting at the table. I had no idea who he was. But I'm pretty sure he was the one who brought me here. When he noticed me he got right up and walked over to me with a mouth full of cereal.
"Hi, I'm Justin." He said reaching my hand out for me to shake. I used my manors and shook it.
"I'm Alexandra but you can call me Alex. I'm sorry this is weird because I don't know you and I'm in your house. Why am I here?" I asked with a confused look on my face.
"Well you were just lying there in the sand passed out when I ran by, so I picked you up and put you in my bed. I slept on the couch." Justin said.
"Thank-you for doing that." I said.
"No problem, ok I know we just met but you're beautiful and I was wondering if you would like to hang out?" I blushed a lot when he called me beautiful and so did he. I don't know what to say.
"Thanks, again. And um, sure I'd love to." I smiled and he walked me to my hotel where I changed and re-did my make-up.
"You know you don't need make-up you're already beautiful." He smiled and I blushed.
"Thank-you once again, now what are we going to do?" I asked.
"Well I was going to let you choose, you're the girl so it's your choice." I was thinking of all the stuff you can do in California. It's endless.
"Can we decide together?" I laughed.
"Yeah sure." I stared at him in amazement and couldn't believe that he thought I was beautiful. I mean he's hot, like really hot and he's got some awesome biceps. He thinks I'm beautiful?
"Ok why? Why do you think I'm beautiful?" I asked wondering because it was too good to be true.
"There's no way to explain it. You just are." He smiled and took my hand. I allowed it and we went for a walk.
"You're the first guy to ever tell me I'm beautiful." I smiled and stared at my feet as I walked.
"Now that's hard to believe." I shook my head no and we carried on until a question came up. "So… do you by any chance have a boyfriend?" I have no idea absolutely at all what to say because I'm not sure if I'm with Ryan anymore.
"Well… it's complicated, I'm not sure if me and him are together or not." I said looking up at him. He frowned and I felt bad. By now I can tell that he really likes me. Why now? Why does everyone like me here? Not at home?
"Oh, ok." He looked at the ground and let go of my hand.
"No." he had a really confused look on his face. "No, I don't have a boyfriend." I said grabbing his hand again and smiling. He also smiled. After a while we stopped and sat in the sand for a bit. We lie down and I let my eyes close.
It felt like a few hours but it was only 5 minutes when he woke me up. He had to get home or his parents would kill him.
"Will I see you tomorrow?" He asked as he looked into my eyes for an answer.
"Yeah, you will." We both smiled and then he started to lean in for a kiss. But of course my phone had to start ringing. "Sorry I have…" It was Ryan. "Never mind I don't have to. Now where were we?" I smiled and laughed.
"Maybe next time I really got to get home." He said letting go of my hand again and starting to walk away. Once again I grabbed his hand and pulled him back to me.
"Before you go, I have a question." He nodded. "I don't feel like going back to my hotel, so can I just stay with you again tonight?"
"Sure, if it's ok with your parents." He said staring me down.
"Well actually my parents aren't here. In California. With me."
"So you're here alone?" he asked me with a shocked but happy look on his face.
"I'm alone without my parents, but I have a few friends that came with me." I said looking at the ground. But then he lifted my chin and looked into my eyes. "So can I stay with you?"
"Yeah. C'mon, let's go." He pulled me to his house and he gave me a pair of his sister's pajamas and they were a little big but whatever. He insisted that I sleep on the bed and he sleep on the floor. But I wouldn't let him. I made him sleep on the couch like last night.
