5: "Well the thing is... there's 2 girls I love."

Hey guys! This chapter didn’t take very long like my other chapters, so I thought I should post it now. I really hope you enjoy this chapter.



“You stupid girl!” I see a knife fly past my head. I look at the culprit and see it’s this man, who looks familiar, but I can’t remember his name.

“Please just stop!” I cry out, trying to call 911. I hear the phone ring and after three rings, the people working with 911 pick up.

“Hello, this is 911. What is your emergency?”

“Hello, my name is Brianna Moore and my father is trying to kill me.”

“Ok, please give me your address, Ma’am.”

“89335 Brookshire Lane.”

“Ok Ma’am, we will be there shortly.” I pray that I can survive before they get here.

As I turn a corner, I get a punch in the face. I hear a crack in my nose and feel blood oozing out of it.

“Here you are, you bitch!” I hear the man-I just found out is my father-say. I try to run, but he grabs my arm pulling me back to him. I hear sirens and footsteps rushing to the door. I try to get out of his hold, but he just holds on tighter.

I hear the door break down as police rush in trying to get to me.

“Oh well, looks like its time for my departure.” Is the last thing I hear before my father sticks something in my stomach and drops me. I scream out as I feel this excruciating pain in my stomach. I fall and hit my head on the table as I blackout.


I jolt awake covered in sweat. What the hell was that nightmare. It cannot be real, that man is not my father. My father is Elijah Moore, not some killer. I mean my family would have told me if he was my father, right?

I get out of bed to go clear my head. I walk downstairs quietly trying not to disturb anyone. When I make it downstairs, I walk into the kitchen and see someone outside, in the backyard. I got to see who this person is, the man outside hears the door open.

I gasp as I look into those familiar blue eyes.

Trenton Wayne

“Can’t sleep?” I hear him softly ask over the calm wind. This is new for him, usually he teases or wears that stupid smirk.

“Yup, I had a weird dream or nightmare, as some would call it. What about you?”

“I can’t sleep. My mind is on a lot of things right now.”

“Like...?” I try to push him to open up to me.

“Like...,” I can see him struggling to find the right words. “Love.”

This shocked me to the core. Trenton Wayne is in Love! I don’t know why, but a tiny part of me is sad.

“Wow, THE Trenton Wayne, who changes girls like he changes clothes, is in love!” I say feigning shock. I see him roll his eyes and let out a deep chuckle. I bite my bottom lip, trying to keep my thighs from clenching together at the sound of his chuckle.

“Yeah, I know how it sounds."

“Oooo, tell me about her.” I try not to sound disappointed, not wanting to hear about the girl who stole his heart.

“Well the thing is there’s two girls I love. And I don’t know which one to choose.” I hear him sigh. Umm... What. I did not expect that.

“That is honestly a really tough choice.”

“Tell me about both.” I quickly add, trying to clear the awkward tension surrounding us and to carry on the conversation.

“Well the first girl is the girl I liked first. Shes a model like me, she won Miss America last year, I think, and shes an actress. I think shes Jade's co-star on that movie she's working on, I think it's called My Crazy Life, or something like that. I met her at an award ceremony and we instantly became friends. We hung out a lot and 3 years ago was when I started feeling romantic feelings for her.” Oh.

“Wow, what about the second girl? You said there were two right?” I hear him sigh.

“Yes, the second girl I’ve known for most of my life. But when I was younger, I was a dick to her. I hurt her and I always regret it. I started to realize I liked her since I first saw a picture of her, 2 years ago. But it was too late, I know she doesn't like me, I never gave her a reason too. I dated other girls to get rid of my feelings for her, of course I didn't think I had feelings for her at the time. But we could never be together, too many obstacles are in the way.” Now that has me confused.

“HUH! Someone doesn't like THE Trenton Wayne back? What world is this? You always have girls throwing themselves at you.” He sighs.

“Is that all you got from that?”

“Yup!" He gives me a chuckle.

“All those girls want me for my money and fame. They don't care about my personality.” After he said that I knew what my answer was.

“I think you should go with whoever makes you most happy. You deserve someone who makes you happy. And if she loves you for you, then she's good in my book.”

“I think I know which one to choose.” After he says that, I see him smile but I doesn't reach his eyes. I give him a hug.

“Hey, it will be okay. Just follow your heart, never your head when it comes to love.” I tell him softly.

“Thank you.” I hear him whisper as I walk back inside.

I head back up the stairs, to my room. Weirdly enough, I don't have any more nightmares that night.
