Bonus Chapter- Bailey 1
'I'm not sure what you are saying.'
She seemed to be nervous, her words spilling out of her mouth erratically as I gazed at her.
'Sure you do. I need you to convince her to come on a date with me. You are her best friend after all.'
I noticed her glance around, her grey eyes captivating me as she bit her lip nervously.
She jumped as I spoke, and I wondered if she was always this awkward. She made an odd sound, and I tried not to smile. She was fucking cute.
'Its Annabelle.' She mumbled, 'You want me to get Ray to go on a date with you?'
No. I want you to go on a date with me.
Instead I lied.
'Yup. You got it.'
I winked at her as her cheeks flushed a deeper shade of red, and I felt myself staring at her lips.
Just a bet, Fenton.
'Bailey, no offense, but that won't happen. She's not interested.'
I couldn't give less of a fuck about Ray. Say my name again.
Before I knew it, my hand was on her arm, electricity shooting between us as I tried to keep my cool. What the fuck was that?
'This isn't something I've come across before. She intrigues me. Please say you'll try? For me?'
She looked at me with pity, her words shrouded in disbelief.
'You've never faced rejection?'
No. But suddenly I felt ashamed of this. I didn't want her to see me that way.
'Would you say no to me?' I breathed, stepping closer to her. She smelled like vanilla. Suddenly her eyes fell on something behind me and I felt my stomach lurch with jealousy. It was only Ray, thank fuck.
'I'll have a word.' She said quietly as she pushed past me, latching her arm with Rays as I watched her leave.
I realised my heart was pounding, as I stared after her for the second time that week. I couldn't quite explain it, but that girl had me twisted and I didn't know why.
