Chapter 16

“Lexi, first thing in the morning I will tell Lilly that we will stop hooking up because I met someone,” I said kissing me again.

“Ok so what does that make us Axl?” I ask, leaning into him. We were sitting on my bed watching the moon out of my window.

“Well Lexi, will you be my girlfriend?” he asked, looking dead serious.

“Let me think about it,” I say and Axl makes a face.

“Duh it’s a yes,” I say, “But is the player ready to date? Is he ready to let someone love him? Is he ready to reciprocate all the feelings?” I ask staring into his eyes.

“Yes he is,” he says looking serious too.

“You are the best and I really like you,” he says.

“I know. Let’s sleep,” I say hugging him and making him sleep in my bed.

We go to school the next day, Jordan was near the locker’s just staring at me. Axl notices that puts his arm around me and kissing me, making it clear that I was his.

Everyone at the school got to know I and Axl were dating and congratulated us. I was so happy.

I hope no one comes in between us.

Just as I think about that, Tiffany comes up to Axl and pushes me away. Everyone just stopped doing their work and stop to look at us.

“Axl, you are dating this whore? You deserve someone better like me,” she said touching his bicep.

“The only whore over here I see is you Tiffany,” he replied holding my hand.

Everyone cheered for u as she walked away ashamed.

“Thank you, Axl,” I say going on my toes to kiss his nose.

“I will always protect you, Baby,” he says, “And when I say baby I mean it,” he says smiling at the thing I told him to not call me baby unless he meant it.

We go back home. We directly went to his room. It was messy but I liked it.

“Since you told me a secret I have something to tell you too,” I say sitting on his bed and he nods.

“I dated a teacher back in London. He was my Drama teacher. He was young and handsome. I used to really like acting so I was always there and suddenly we kissed and stuff. I knew it was wrong but we did it anyways. We dated for like 2 weeks and I found out that he had a wife and we broke up for good. I didn’t want to get in trouble for that,” I say waiting for Axl to get angry.

But he laughs and we both start laughing.

“Here I want you to have this. I want you to remember that I really like you whenever you look at it,” Axl said giving me a bracelet.

“This is from Tiffany’s I always wanted. This is too expensive Axl,” I say giving it back to him.

“No Lexi. I appreciate everything you do to me. This is yours,” he said putting it on my hand.

“Thank you. It’s beautiful,” I say kissing him. I will never let this bracelet go out of my sight.

We spoke for a long time and we fell asleep in his room, with him next to me, his arms around my waist and my hand on his chest. It felt right.
