The next morning I wake up early and sneak out to school, so I don't have to face my parents. But today I feel like I am forgetting something important. When I got to school I find Xavier waiting in front of my locker,
"Sunshine, are you going to avoid me today?"
"Nope now can you move so I can get my books?"
"Only if you promise not to avoid me ever again."
"Fine, but you have to promise that you will never get mad at me, deal?" Then he looked at me suspiciously and asks,
"Did you do something to make me mad?"
"No but I never want you mad at me even if I do something, so deal?"
"Okay now I won't avoid you so you can move now." Then he moved so I could get my books.
The rest of the day went great after that.
After English class…
"Hey Sunshine, lets go to my place again." Xavier said as he hugged my back.
"Okay-" ring, ring, ring. Katie always has to call and interrupt me and Xavier's conversations.
"What do you want?"
"Get your ass outside of your school right now!"
"Just do it Alexa," and with that she hung up.
"Who was that?" Xavier asked after Katie hung up.
"It was Katie, now follow me." I honestly don't know why Katie wants me to go outside but I will since we are leaving school anyways.
"Where are we going?"
"Outside, now come on." I said as I tried to pull him by the wrist. "Xavier come on."
"Fine you can only get a kiss if you can catch me." And with that I was off, running out of school. I know that he can catch me easily but I hope that I will make it out of school before he catches me. As he was about to catch me a big group cut him off. Ha, then I dashed out of school only to meet Katie and Trevor. What! Katie and Trevor are here.
"Um Alexa someone is running after you." Katie said. Then my eyes went wide realizing what was about to happen.
"Ahhh," I screamed as I started running again. But soon enough Xavier caught me, scooped me up in his arms, and kissed me passionately. By the time he pulled away, I felt light headed from lack of oxygen, but it was so worth it.
"Ha, I got you outside," I said breathing heavily, "Now put me down." Reluctantly he let me down. When he put me down I ran towards Katie and Trevor and pulled them into a big group hug. When I did that I heard a growl behind me.
"Oh calm down, he is just a friend, Katie is his girlfriend." I said to Xavier rolling my eyes. "Anyways, why are you guys here, you're not supposed to be here for another week."
"Well we came to surprise you for your birthday. Oh and happy birthday!"
"You didn't tell me it was your birthday." Xavier said, sounding mad. It can't be my birthday, I wouldn't have forgotten my birthday.
"What's today's date?" I asked ignoring Xavier
"March 29th, did you forget your birthday?" Fuck I can't believe I forgot my birthday.
"Shit, Shit, Shit, I can't believe I forgot my birthday. Mom and Dad are going to be so mad."
"Why would they be mad?" Tevor asked.
"Well, I have been avoiding them for the past two days, so I have been sneaking in and out the house, so I left without saying goodbye on my birthday. Also I have dinner plans tonight, and they are going to want me to have dinner with them."
"We can cancel dinner my family won't mind, plus you have an excuse. It's your birthday, how did you even forget about your birthday?"
"I have had a lot of things happen recently that are very distracting," I said while glancing at Xavier and he was smirking, " and well I just didn't pay attention to the dates." I don't know how I forgot my birthday, but birthday or not I am not canceling dinner plans. "I am not canceling dinner plans Xavier, my parents can be mad at me all they want, but I am 18 now so they can't tell me what to do. Plus what's the worst that can happen?"
"No but Xavier, I made my decision, and I am not canceling dinner." I said cutting Xavier off. "Also Xavier I can't come over right now, me and my brother have this tradition that we go out for lunch or he takes me somewhere after school even if we are fighting or not. I will see you later text me like 30 minutes before you pick me up." And with that I walked off.
