We both stand there in the hall not saying a word to each other. Hunter is looking around the place, he looks at the photos on the wall and smiles. Like an actual smile, not a stupid smirk a smile. I stand there and watch him, he's very interesting to watch plus he's hot so it's a win-win for me either way. I'm just glad my mum isn't home, if she was she'd be asking so many questions that I wouldn't have the answers to. I've never brought a boy home before so I know she would be really excited for me and quite angry that I didn't warn her before-hand. Even if he was just some stranger from my school.
He glances around for a few more seconds until his eyes land on me. "Ava." He says my name barely above a whisper but I can hear him loud and clear. I love the way he says my name. It just sounds so nice the way he says it, the way it rolls off his tongue. I smile at him, guess it's time to find out why he's here.
"Hunter, not to be rude or anything but why are you here?" He doesn't say anything for a while, turning in he just stares into my eyes and I can see the cogs turning in his head.
"Look can we talk somewhere more, I don't know, comfortable?" I nod and motion for him to follow me, as no one's home we might as well go upstairs. I know what you guys are thinking but, no the idea that I would do something like that is repulsing, sure he's hot but that's it. He's an ass and a player, he probably has some type of disease the way he's been going.
We walk upstairs and I sit down on my bed. He follows me and sits down next to me. He looks around my room and raises an eyebrow at all the popsicle sticks and the tissues that are lying on the ground. "What?" I say innocently. I know what he is thinking, that I'm a greedy pig and a cry baby but right now, I don't care what people think of me. Well, I do but, I'm trying not to.
He looks at me and I see something there, I can't tell what it is though. It disappears as quick as it came. "Ava, I saw the video..." He pauses, waiting to see my reaction. I nod but, there are tears in my eyes I look away because I don't want to appear weak in front of someone like him. He continues "I want to help you." Wait to hold the phone, did Hunter Black just say he wanted to help me? Me out of all the people in the school.
My head snaps to where he is sat and I stare at him wide-eyed but he carries on. "I know you must like being invisible but, you can't anymore so, I'm offering you the chance to get out of the shadows and into the light without people making fun of you, the only way to do that is to be my fake girlfriend. This will be until you feel comfortable by yourself and it will also help you get back at Jessica for what she's done to you. She wants me and this will make her really jealous." I just stare at him before I burst into fits of laughter.
I've got to admit it was a pretty good prank, even if it does seem unbelievable. Hunter just stares at me in confusion. "Tell me, where are the people with the cameras hiding this time? This is hilarious! Were they hoping I would say yes? Wow got to hand it to you, you nearly had me there."
He just shakes his head and puts his hand down on my shoulders forcing me to stop laughing. "Ava I'm being very serious" I stare at him with my eyes wide. He must be joking, he has to be. Hunter never dates. Ever!
"Hunter, you never date, you are the biggest player there is at school! Why on earth do you think I would trust you and agree to date you?" He stares at me blankly before he replies.
"Look, Ava, you can't judge me you don't know my story. Like I don't know yours. I want to get back at Jessica and Drew, the guy that hit on you, for my own reasons." I feel guilt swamp me as I realise he is right. I don't know him and I don't know his story so I have no right to judge him.
"I'm sorry" I whisper, he gazes softens slightly before he lets go of my shoulders.
"So, what do you say, will you be my fake girlfriend?" I think about it before asking the one question that's been on my mind. "What's in it for you?" His gaze intensifies as he leans closer to me. This close I can see the slight freckles on his nose covered by his tan. His dazzling eyes are very captivated. I feel like I could lose myself in his eyes.
His leans into me and puts his mouth right next to my ear, I can feel his hot breath fanning my ear and neck and it's making parts of my body tingle. I can feel the shivers running down my spine, making my whole body come alive. "You will be mine" his voice is so soft yet holds a command in it and I gasp at his words. He doesn't sound as if he is joking and I feel vulnerable by his side. I know I can't let myself so close to him, I'm smart enough to know that if I was to be his then it would only end in him sleeping with me and then leaving me heartbroken because I was stupid enough to fall for him and let him.
I can't go through any type of pain again that guy Drew, who I didn't know, was bad enough I just can't do it. I shake my head and frown over takes his features. There are tears still bubbling in my eyes, ready to pool over. He looks me dead in the eyes before muttering the words. "No one says no to me, princess, you are no exception. No one says no to me and gets away with it!"
