Chapter 28: Dinner with the bad boy's family

Daniel was gone to Ace’s and Ally had to return home for her usual family dinner. Rachel was coming at Ace’s house too as Mrs Carter has invited us for dinner. I borrowed her one of my dresses and watched as she was boiling with excitement. After I told her about the kiss, she was so happy for me that she couldn’t stop squealing.

“Your babies will be so cute!” she gushed as she put on some lips stick. I rolled my eyes and tied my hair in a high ponytail. I stared at myself in the mirror and I smiled at the cute dress that I was wearing. I put on my black high heels and straightened the white dress.

“So what’s up with you and Daniel?” I asked and that pink tint that appear on her face made me chuckle.

“He’s cute and sweet with me” she replied, trying not to sound to love struck. “Even though I sometimes act rudely, he’d still be sweet” she explained.

“You like him” I sang and stood up. She pulled out her mobile phone and took a few pictures of us.

“I think I do” she admitted while checking the pictures that we just took. Would Daniel and Rachel be able to stay together? I bit my lips while thinking over that.

“Just know what you’re doing and don’t fuck everything up” I tried to advise. But did I tell you that I sucked at giving advises? Well, yes I do.

“I’m not going everything like I did with Sam. I’m not even going to over think over all this shit. If something has to happen, it will happen” she told me sincerely and I nodded. No way I’m going to give her my shitty advises.

“Good, now let’s go” I faked a squeal and took her hand in mine before walking out of my house with our phones in our hands. I stood in front of the Carter’s porch and started fidgeting nervously. I don’t even know why I was nervous. Maybe because you made out with him! My mind screeched at me. Rachel pressed on the doorbell and looked at me with a smirk.

“Stop biting your lips, you’re going to make it bleed” she ordered and I quickly let go of my lips. It’s something I usually do whenever I get too nervous. The door opened and a smiled crept on my face when I saw Lily with a lollypop in her small hand.

“Mommy! Angel is here!” she shouted and lifted her hand for me to pick her up. I couldn’t help but chuckle at how cute she looked. I gave Rachel my phone and wrapped my arms around the little girl. She giggled and rested her head on my shoulder with her strawberry lollypop in her mouth. Soon, Mrs Carter was in front of me with a bright smile on her face.

“I see that Lily likes you a lot” she concluded with affection as her eyes fell on Lily’s little body in my arms. I nodded and kissed the cute little girl on the side of her head.

“Yeah, and I like her too” I said and smiled when Lily giggled.

“Boys! Come downstairs” Mrs Carter shouted and wiped her hand in a towel.

“I’m Rachel” Rachel introduced herself and shook Mrs Carter’s hand.

“Daniel’s girl?” she asked teasingly. Rachel turned bright red and i chuckled. “I saw the way you looked at each other earlier during your water battles” she joked and I laughed.

“I-I’m not his girl” Rachel stuttered.

“Yet” Mrs Carter added and I laughed. She started walking and motioned us to follow her. We reached the dining room and I smiled at how warm it seemed.

“You need help? Mrs Carter?” I asked and she frowned for a few seconds then nodded.

“I need some help in the kitchen” she stated. “Rachel, can you please go and get boys?” she asked with a sigh. Rachel nodded enthusiastically and started walking towards the stairs after Mrs Carter showed her where to go. I followed her to the kitchen and watched as she opened a drawer and pulled out some plates. “Will you take these with you?” she asked and I nodded. I took the plates and smiled as she took some spoons, knives and forks. “So how are you?” she asked. I could feel the concern in her voice.

“I’m fine” I answered, confusion lacing my words.

“I wanted to talk to you after the dinner with your grand mother” she explained and I nodded my head, finally getting what she was talking about. “But Ace asked me not to” she cleared.

“Why?” I asked.

“He wanted to talk to you” she said with a smile. “He really cares about you” I smiled at what she said.

“He’s sweet” I admitted and watched as she grinned. “He really helped me” I explained and watched as her face softened.

“After the death of his father, he changed” she told me while taking the bowl of salad. “You’re bringing out the old him” she said and a frown took place on my face. His father was dead?

“It’s a good thing?” I questioned hesitantly.

“Oh, yes” she told me with a smile.

“He didn’t tell me about the death of his father” I said, a bit sad that he didn’t share such an important thing with me.

“It’s not something he like to talk about” she said with worry in her voice. “Two years ago, he was my little boy who would care about people’s feeling but now, he cares only for us and his friends. You changed him. He cares for you” she said. “Usually he plays with girls and once done, he throw them as if they were some used toys, but with you it’s different” she told with me with shiny eyes. I could not believe that Mrs Carter was telling me all that.

“We try to help each other, Mrs Carter” I told her. “Unwillingly, I gave Ace a big importance in my life and That’s what I’m afraid of” I admitted. “I’ve had a rough past” I told her without looking at her. I didn’t want to get into the details. “And I don’t want it to repeat itself” I said.

“Ace’s a good boy” she said with live when she talked about her son. “He would never hurt you” she pointed out.

“I know” I smiled. “I just need time” I told her and we made our way to the dining room to find the guys already seated. Rachel was sitting between Daniel and Alex. I made my way between Ace and Lily. I didn’t made eye contact with him as the heavy make out session replayed in my head. Damn! I was already blushing. Mrs Carter took place and everyone started talking.

“Thinking about earlier?” I heard his husky voice asked tauntingly beside me. In cue, my cheeks reddened more. “You were!” he exclaimed in amusement making everyone turn their attention to him.

“She was what?” Rachel inquired with a little smirk and Daniel had a grin on his face. Ace must have told him.

“Thinking of something” I replied, glaring at Ace.

“What?” Daniel asked teasingly.

“How stupid you are” I retorted and he narrowed his eyes at me while Ace chuckled beside me. All time during dinner, Mrs Carter would ask all of us questions and we would laugh at Alex’s stupid answers. I had a great time with them and Mrs Carter made me feel at home.

After dinner, we moved to the living room. It was really spacious and it has a really modern touch to it. The wall was white and the furniture was white. What really caught my eyes, was the piano who was in the corner of the room. While the others moved to the couches, my feet made their way to the piano. I let my fingers run on it’s soft surface and I stared at the photos that were on it. I noticed a man who looked like an old version of Ace. His dad was really good looking too.

“You know how to play?” Mrs Carter’s voice broke my thoughts and I smiled. Just when I was about to reply, Rachel did instead of me.

“Yes, she knows” she replied and I nodded.

“Can you play a song for us?” Mrs Carter asked with a little smile and again, just as I was about to reply, Ace beat it to me.

“Yes, she will” Ace responded and I rolled my eyes.

“You know guys, I can talk!” I exclaimed and Mrs Carter laughed. I sat in the bench and put my fingers on the keys. “What song?” I asked.

“Say something” Mrs Carter replied instantly.

“It’s her favorite song” Alex said and I chuckled. I started playing the song.

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’ll be the one if you want me to
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I... I’m feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I... will stumble and fall
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl
Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I... will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye
Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
And anywhere I would’ve followed you (Oh-Ooh)
Say something, I’m giving up on you
Say something, I’m giving up on you
Say something...′
