Chapter 38

Chris and I came home after watching a movie at Ginger’s place. To be honest, I never knew how it felt like being the third wheel until now. They were too busy cuddling in the love seat while I sat alone eating buttered popcorn. No matter how hard I tried to concentrate on the movie, I would occasionally notice them either, holding hands, making out or cuddling and whispering in each others ears. I find it cute and annoying at the same time. Like I get it, you’re together. No need to rub it in my face telling me how single my life really is.

I quickly go into my room and take a quick shower before changing into my comfy pajamas. I off my room light and on my side lamp. It was currently 1:45 in morning and I wasn’t feeling sleepy at all. So I decided to skim through my mails and check what’s on Facebook.

Once I log in, I noticed there were tonnes on notifications. I never got this amount before and it was shocking to me. These notifications led me to a picture that I was tagged on by one of my classmates. There were so many.

I clicked on them.

First picture was of him taking a selfie and coincidently, Dalon and I had entered the party at that time. I look closely at Dalon, his face showing no emotion. I wonder if he’s mad at me for leaving suddenly without informing him. But I did message him after that. I didn’t want to disturb him when he was talking with Ginger.

I clicked on the next photo, which showed me dancing with Cole. He looked funny with his hands up in the air and expression on point which made me laugh.

The rest were pictures of the dance. But then there was one picture that caught my attention. This was taken after I left. The Picture was a selfie of my classmates and his friends but that wasn’t what caught my attention, it was Dalon behind him. His face looked really tense and he had his phone in his hand and the other on his forehead. Shit, I think he was trying to look for me. Oh great, that means he’s definitely mad at me.

So long Summer, you will be missed, I say to myself. I quickly close my laptop and run to the window. I look out to see his car was there and turns out it was parked outside on his porch.

My phone began to ring and I quickly went to see who it was. Turns out it was Dalon. What a coincidence. He calls me right now.. I knew he’s going to kill me so what better way is there than to ignore him. Right?

I quickly switch my side lamp off and jumped on my bed like I was a huge whale in the ocean which made a squeaky noise coming out of it.

I tried to sleep, by shutting my eyes and counting numbers. Like that even helps.

Moments later the phone stopped ringing. Huh, he finally gave up. I take my phone and scroll down the missed calls. He even sent me messages.

‘Answer the phone godammit!’ -Dalon

‘I know you’re ignoring me..’ -Dalon

‘don’t pretend you’re sleeping..’ -Dalon

‘So stubborn huh?’-Dalon

‘I won’t give up that easily ;)’ -Dalon

Okay that last one creeped me out. Actually all of them did. What is he going to do?

‘knock’ ‘knock’

That sound. It sounded as if someone was at my window right now knocking on it. I choke on my own saliva. This was where I would hide myself in my blankets till it went away. But I knew exactly who it was outside.

‘Open the window.’ -Dalon

I huff, stomping my feet to my window. I open the curtains quickly to see Dalon smiling against the glass window. This made me jump and fall back on the floor with a loud thump. Seriously. Ow.

I hear the soft grumble of Dalon laughing outside. I quickly get up and open the window shutter. I was pissed but I forced out a smile.

“What brings you here on my roof?” I say coolly.

“Oh nothing..” He says sarcastically.

“Oh yeah, standing next to my window in the middle of the night is not creepy at all..” I cross my arms.

“Okay I’m coming in.. It’s so chilly out here..” He says ignoring my comment. He steps inside with ease automatically making me move to give him space.

The only light that was on was the street light outside. This gave me enough to see who it is. Even in this light Dalon looked beautiful and I on the other hand was in my pajamas, and my hair was somewhat messed up.

“What are you doing here?” I ask him.

“Let’s see..” He taps his chin. “you ignoring me..I don’t know, pretty much wanting to know why you left the party without informing me..”

I was nervous and I didn’t know why. Maybe because I wanted to leave so badly or I saw him with Jasmine and thought I should leave. “I saw someone..” I say

“You saw who?” He had his hands crossed.

“I saw James at the party” I blurt out.


“I caught him trying to kiss some girl..”

“What did you do?”

“I punched him in the face..”

“Damn..” He laughs, “He deserved it..”

“Damn right he did..” I say with a slight laugh.

“Why didn’t you tell me this?” He asks softly.

“I w-was” I stutter.


“I saw you with Jasmine”

“What?” He asks sounding confused.

“I don’t know what came up to me..” I say, “I just.. When I saw you guys hugging, and it seemed like you two were having a moment..” I say without making any eye contact with him.

“We were not having a moment Summer” He runs his hand through his hair. “She just.. Hugged me.” He says quickly, “because I was upset.”

“Oh..” Was my lame reply. Shit. I am dumb.

“And you know how dangerous it is to just walk in the middle of the night alone?!” He held my shoulders. “God, what if someone kidnapped you? Or..” He swallows, “Dammit Summer, if anything had happened ever happened, I swear to god..”

I hugged him, “Nothing happened” I whispered, “I’m fine.. I went to Ginger’s which was really close by and my brother was also there..”


“Okay, I’m sorry..” I apologize, ” I won’t do it again. I’ll tell you before I leave, okay?”

“Much better,” He whispers in my ear, sending tingles through my body. I felt his cold fingers around my waist.

We both let go but we stayed really close to each other as if we were about to kiss. We were so close from kissing each other.

“What Jasmine and I had was in the past” He whispers staring at me. “I don’t love her anymore..”


“but nothing Summer, I like someone else now. Jasmine and I moved on.”

“Oh..” I say looking down, “who do you like?”

“Someone I knew for a long time..”

“Who is it?” My voice barely coming out.

He lifts my chin with his index finger, “it’s you.” He says before locking lips with me.

His lips felt so soft against mine. My mind is going haywire right now and my hands automatically wrap around his neck. My whole body feeling giddy and excited. I seem to forget everything around me and focus on Dalon. My legs suddenly feel weak app of a sudden but he wraps his arm around my waist to support me.

I’m kissing Dalon freaking Andrew and wow, I’m loving it.
