Chapter | 33
I need your love before
I fall fall"
Today marks one week since Blake asked me out. In the past 7 days, he has been nothing but caring and sweet. He would always spend time with me and buy me boba when I'm craving it.
The other day I started my "girl problem" and I was being very harsh to him. I was very irritated and got pissed at everything. Even if there was just a small piece of crumble on the table. But, either way, he still handled me with care. Even when I threaten to stomp on his car with my thick ass heels.
He is the best thing that happens to me since my parent's died. I was currently watching 'To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You' with Ashley, who forced me to bring her over, while Blake was training his men.
(BTW, I haven't watched the movie yet. But all my friends, who watched it already, said it was super good.)
Ashley has been coming over at least three days a week. I mean, shouldn't she be spending time with Peter? But when I asked her she told me that Peter and Adam are in Europe. They didn't say why, they just told her that it was important and a secret.
I never knew there was a gym in this house, correction, I don't know anything about this house. And I have been living here for a month or two.
"Don't you think we should get more popcorn?" Ashley asked out of the blue.
I glanced at the bowl, seeing that it was already empty. The movie just began and she ate the whole popcorn already. It was a big bowl, too!
"The movie just started. How the hell you finished the popcorn already!?"
She shrugged her shoulders as she got up and head to the kitchen. She acts as she lives here. Tsk tsk.
"I'm just going to get more popcorn. And maybe some drinks too. And chocolate. Oh! And maybe some chips. Wait! No! I should also be-"
"Ok," I interrupted her, "I get it. Just hurry up. I'm about to play the movie again!"
I turn back around and clung to my BT21 RJ plush doll, as I waited. Suddenly a got a text message. I pull out my phone and saw that it was from an unknown number.
"Weird," I mumbled.
I turned off my phone and turn to Ashley. Her arm was full of snacks and beverages. Her mouth was holding onto a piece of chip.
"A little help," she mumbled out.
I rushed over to her and helped her out. She thanked me and sat back down.
"So, what's weird?" She repeated her question.
I shook my head.
"Ok. Whatever you say."
She starts shoving food down her throat. I'm surprised she isn't choking on it. She completely ignored me as she clicked play. Sometimes, I wonder how I'm friends with her.
"Did you know, when you miss school, Mitchell kept talking shit about you?"
"Yeah. She kept saying how you stole 'her man' and that you got pregnant. That's why you aren't at school anymore."
That bitch is going down.
"Oh really. That's surprising since her stomach has gotten bigger lately. Maybe it's just her fat." I responded.
Ashley let out a laugh.
"That's my girl."
Blake was standing with sweat all over him. It made him look like he was glowing.
"Damn," I mumbled.
"I excuse you. I'll take Alexis for the day, " Ashley replied happily.
Blake rolled his eyes and peck my head, like literally peck my head. I think I have a hole in my head now.
"I'm going to take a shower."
I nodded my head as he walked up the stairs. We continued to watch the movie as I recalled the unknown number. I wonder who it is.
"Alexis. Alexis! Al-never mind. Let me just do this instead."
I didn't have time to registered what happened. Ashley grabbed all her leftover food and dumped it on top of me. I let out a small screamed.
I just cleaned the couch!!
"Ashley!" I screamed at her.
She sat Indian-style on the stool as she stares at me with her mouth full. When will she stop eating!?
"What you want now?"
"Why did you dump all your food on me! I just clean the couch," I whined.
She gave me a pointed look.
My mouth drop. I let out a huff as I head to the guest room. I heard Ashley let out a loud laugh. I stopped at Blake's room first to get my clothes before heading to the guest bedroom.
I locked the bathroom door as I stripped out of the sticky fabric. Just when I was about to hop into the shower my phone buzz. I wrap myself in a towel, preventing myself from getting cold, as I clicked on the text message.
Soon we will meet again
My eyes widen. I look at the first text message as I felt the hair on the back of my neck rise.
15 minutes ago
I suck in a breath as I stared at the symbol next to it. It was a strange sign, it looked so familiar. It was a circle with a lion in the middle. But the main question was, how did they know my name...
Maybe they are stalking me. I know I'm cute but that's a little be extreme.
I shook the idea off, maybe I was just being paranoid. I turn back the water and hop inside, letting the warm water wash away any of my stress and fears.
My tensed shoulder relax as I massaged my scalp with shampoo.
Suddenly there was a loud banging noise. I nearly jumped out of my skin as my heart beat faster and faster.
Who the hell is that!
Being my paranoid self, I quickly rinsed my hair, grabbed a robe, and kicked the door down. Using my ninja skills I beat up the person.
I opened my eyes and stared at a freshly-shower Blake. My eyes widen as I quickly got off of him. I let out a sigh of relief. It wasn't a kidnapper.
"What was that for?" He asked as he rubbed his arm.
"What was that for?" I repeated his question.
I kicked him in the butt, making him fall, before hopping back into the shower. That boy made me freak out for nothing.
