His wink at the end of that video…
It was Monday morning and I awoke to the aggravating ringing of my alarm in my ear. “Mmm” I stretched and forced the blankets of my body and stood up. My sister left yesterday which I was really sad about, but she had class so I understood.
I walked into the bathroom and took out my retainer, set it in my retainer case and brushed my teeth. Then I washed my face, the cold water waking me up.
I looked over at my phone and saw a text from Justin
Justin: Morning beautiful, Love you.
I smiled and put my phone back, knowing he just wanted me to see it and that I didn’t really have to reply.I dried off my face and did my makeup and hair. I went into my walk-in closet and picked out a comfy outfit that was still cute.
I curled my hair and put on my shoes to go downstairs. I grabbed my phone off the charger and took my purse from the chair in my room and walked downstairs. I picked an apple up and a water bottle and walked out to my car in the garage.
I set my purse in the passenger seat and put the key in the ignition. I plugged my phone into the AUX cord and went to Pandora. One of my favorite songs Talk Dirty by Jason Derulo came on and I smiled remembering the other day when Justin was belting the lyrics and dancing to it.
I pulled into my parking lot at the school, grabbed my purse and walked inside. Justin was leaning against his Ferrari and he walked up to me as I walked in. He wrapped his arm around my waist, “Hey babe.” He kissed me on the cheek. “Hey” I smiled and we opened the doors to the hell hole we were about to enter.
He gave me a quick peck on the lips and walked to his locker. I went to my locker and chuckled remembering how we have to sit in different corners in 1st period, maybe she won’t notice… I grabbed my book from my locker and shut my locker.
I turned around and Sarah was standing there and she pushed past me to get to her locker, “Oh… sorry didn’t see you there.” She said with a smirk on her face I wanted to slap off. “Sure..” I rolled my eyes, walking away. “Oh Selena, have a good day!” She said sarcastically.
Something was off… usually she would just leave it at being bitchy but the way she said it confused me. I walked into 1st period ready to endure this 70 minutes of hell. I met eyes with the teacher and smirked. Everyone else walked in and we sat in our normal seats, obviously the teacher didn’t notice because she just began with the lesson.
I was walking to my locker to get my lunch when I saw Justin rushing through the halls and running outside. I grabbed my lunch and slammed my locker, running after him. By the time I got outside he was already speeding out of the parking lot. I didn’t want to drive after him, he probably wanted some time alone.
I walked back inside and headed to the cafeteria. Everyone was already eating and I sat down next to Ryan and Miley. “Hey, do yall know what’s going on with Justin?” I said curiously. They all shrugged their shoulders, “No, why?”, “Uh nothing I just saw him running out of the school.”, “Oh, idk.” How was no one else worried? After 30 minutes of eating the bell rang and we headed back to 4th period.
Suddenly I felt someone bump into me and I looked over to see Sarah with a fake frown on her face. “Have you checked on your boyfriend? I would tell you why he ran out, but that’s his place not mine.” And with that she walked away, her blonde curls bouncing up and down. I grumbled under my breath and rolled my eyes.
What could Justin be upset about that involves her… unless… I ran out of the doors and jumped in my car. I tried calling him multiple times and it went to voicemail every time. I pulled into his driveway and jumped out of my car, flinging the door to his house open. Luckily his mom wasn’t home.
“JUSTIN!” No response. I ran up to his room, not there. I looked out the window and saw him sitting on the beach with his head in his hands. I ran down to the beach and ran up to him, “Justin…” I said in a soft tone. “I’m so stupid…this is all my fault. All the guys are right- I’m just a douche who’s going nowhere in life.” I sat down next to him and let him lay in my arms.
He pulled away and looked at me in the eyes, “Selena… Sarah’s.. pregnant.” He started sobbing again and layed back in my chest. So I was right. I held him for a while while his tears created a wet spot on my shirt.
He pulled away and looked at me, “Selena, I love you so much, but I think if Sarah’s pregnant we shouldn’t be dating.” Tears formed in my eyes and he brushed the hair from my face, “Please don’t cry. I just know how it feels to have parents that aren’t together and I don’t want my kid to go through that. I want to give me and Sarah a chance and see if we can work things out for the child’s sake.” I totally understood where he was coming from because my parents are divorced and I would never wish that upon somebody, but the fact he was leaving Sarah for me made it worse.
He kissed me passionately and hugged me. I stood up and started walking back to my car, “I love you Selena, remember that.” I smiled hiding all the pain inside, “I love you too Jay.” I got in my car and broke down, tears streaming down my face.
A flashback of all the times I’ve met Sarah flew into my head. Something about this is off-fishy. My gut feeling is telling me she’s not pregnant, but I can’t tell Justin that until I have proof.
Four Days Later-
The past four days have been hell. I haven’t even tried to make myself look attractive and I always pass Justin and Sarah in the halls. He always has his arm around her and they’re always laughing about something. In the midst of it all I always make eye contact with him and he will always smile. Is he not suffering as much as me?
This morning I woke up and something clicked inside, ‘Snap out of it Selena! You need to let Sarah know she can’t break you.’I had a little extra motivation because the other day I followed Sarah and got a couple pictures of her paying someone in exchange for their ultrasound pictures. I knew she wasn’t pregnant. I just needed to piece everything together once I got enough evidence and show Justin. I got dressed and did my makeup and hair and walked downstairs.
I fixed some cereal and put my bowl in the sink. I walked out to my car, ready to face the day. The new Selena is back. I pulled into my parking spot and strutted inside, receiving stares from some hot football players. I smirked at them and walked inside.
I went to my locker and grabbed my books, but before I went to class I had something to get out of the way. I looked around for Ed, Ed is the person in our school who makes fake ID’s and hacks websites and techy stuff like that. I walked up to him and walked with him.
“ I have a MAJOR favor to ask of you..”, “Hmm..”, “Ok well how much would it cost for you to hack someone’s phone so I could listen to their calls…?”, “$200”, “You go it.”, “Who’s phone do you want me to hack?” I looked around and whispered, ”Sarah.”, “Gotcha, you have to get me the phone though, for at least 2 minutes.” ,”K.”
I walked into class and was distracted the whole period as to how I was going to get her phone… then it clicked! I walked up to the teacher with the most innocent look on my face and said, “I’m really sorry, but I can’t help to notice that Sarah is watching porn on her phone..” In a whisper.
Porn? I don’t know it’s the first thing I could think of.
The teacher got the most disgusting look on her face and called Sarah and told her to bring her phone up front. I went and sat back down with the biggest smile on my face, waiting for my plan to work out. The bell rang and Sarah got up from her seat and left, “Sarah your ph-“ The teacher started saying, I cut her off. “Oh! Her lockers right next to mine, I’ll just give it to her!” I said with a smile.
She shrugged her shoulders and gave me Sarah’s phone.
I walked into the halls and found Ed, I handed him her phone he smirked, “Slick.” He started working on it, “Hurry!” When he was done he handed it to, “Ok well the way I did it, we can listen to it from my computer.”, “Every call?”, “Every call.”, “Thank you so much!” I handed him the money and walked to my locker. Sarah was at her locker and I walked up to her, “Oh Sarah here’s your phone.” I said with a smirk and handed it to her. She snatched it out of my hands and spat, “Bitch.”
I just laughed inside at how she has no clue what just went on. I turned around and started walking to art. “Someone’s happy.” Miley said approaching by my side. “Yup.” I said smiling. “Any specific reason?”,“Nope.” I said popping the p. I smiled inside.
This was a secret, a secret no one but me and Ed would know.
Sorry if this chapter kind of moved things along really fast!
All the girls decided to go to the mall, so I just changed back into the clothes I wore yesterday.We got to the mall and walked around and went into various stores. I actually found a lot of cute things I wanted to buy.
After about an hour of shopping we decided to leave and since my car was here I just decided to go back home. “Hey just tell Justin that since my cars here from the other day I just decided to go home.”, “Ok, Bye Selena!” Miley said. I got in my car and put the bags in the back and texted my mom.
Selena:On my way home. Bought a couple things if that’s alright.
Mom: K, see you in a bit. Ya that’s fine.
BTW my mom and I still don’t get along well, but we manage. I mean she’s my mom so I still love her.
I played the radio and Dark Horse by Katy Perry was on. I was belting the lyrics when I heard my phone ringing.
Incoming Call: Justin
J-Hey, are you coming back over?
S-Ermm no I just decided that since my car was already here I would go ahead and go home, sorry.
J-It’s fine, I was just wondering. Wanna get some dinner tonight?
J-I’ll pick you up from your house, 6?
Speaking of dinner, it’s 1:30 and I haven’t eaten lunch. I pulled into the Chick-Fil-A drive through and ordered a #5 8 count with a diet coke and Chick-Fil-A sauce. A.K.A, heaven on earth.
He handed me my food and the smell of the fries filled my car, making my taste buds water. I put my food in my passenger seat and reached over for fries every now and then. I pulled my car into the garage and walked inside.
The smell of spaghetti filled my body as I walked inside. Spaghetti is by far one of my favorite foods. “I SMELL SPAGHETTIIIII!” I dropped my bags and walked into the kitchen and saw my mom leaning over the stove stirring the spaghetti.
“Hey honey, did you have fun?”,”Yup, what’s this for?” I said pointing to the spaghetii, we usually go out to eat. My mom smiled, “Well…your sister is coming home from college!”, “Seriously?!? YESSSSSS”
My sister is like my best friend and she is the only person I trusted for my whole life. She’s the one I talk to if I ever need someone to talk to, and she helped me get through our parent’s divorce. I kissed my mom on the cheek, “I’m gonna go get ready!” I grabbed my bags from the foot of the stairs and ran upstairs. I took a shower and did my hair and makeup.
I looked at the clock and it saw it was 5. I walked downstairs and helped my mom set the table and get everything ready. Ding!
Justin: On my way
Oh my gosh, I completely forgot my plans with Justin. “Ermm.. mom is it okay if I have a friend eat with us?”, “Yeah, a boy?” She said with a smile. “Mom he’s just a friend, and it’s Justin. The boy you met yesterday.”, “Ooohhh he’s a cuttieeee.” I playfully slapped her on the arm, “Be normal.” Just then the doorbell rang, “That’s probably Justin.” I ran over to the door and opened it.
“Heyy.” I squealed and wrapped my arms around my sister, Carly. “Hey sis! How have you been?!” She said pulling away from the hug, “Great!”, “Well I would be too if I lived in paradise. You’re so lucky you live in LA!”,”You’re so lucky you’re in college.” I said rolling my eyes. “It’s not as glamorous as they make it out to be.”
We walked into the kitchen and she hugged my mom. “Where’s Steve?” Carly asked. Steve is my stepdad and I was glad he wasn’t here. “Out of town for work.”, “Gotcha.” The doorbell rang and my mom looked at me and smiled, “That would be Selena’s guest..”, Oohh is it a boy?!” Carly said. I got up from my seat and headed towards the door. “yes, be normal.Please.” As I was walking away I heard my mom and Carly talking about it. “He’s a cutie!”, “Are they dating?”, “I don’t know she won’t tell me.” Like they thought I couldn’t hear them.
I just laughed to myself and rolled my eyes. I opened the door and Justin was standing there with his hands shoved in his pockets. He smiled at me when I opened the door. ”You ready to go?”, “Well you see… my sister is home from college and we have this big meal, and my mom wanted to know if you wanted to just stay here. I promise it’s ok if you don’t want to.” I said nervously playing with the bottom of my skirt.
He started walking in and gave me a quick kiss, “Of course I want to stay.” I grabbed his hands and led him into the kitchen where my sister and mom were sipping on wine. I walked in and they looked up smiled. “Carly, this is Justin, Justin this is my sister Carly.” He reached out and shook her hand. He looked at my mom and smiled, “Nice to see you again Mrs. Gomez.”, “Oh, please call me Mandy. Mrs makes me feel like an old lady!”
While they were talking I made eye contact with my sister and she looked at me with wide eyes and gestured towards Justin shaking her head up and down. Giving me the ‘Damn, he’s a keeper.’ Look. I just laughed and grabbed Justin’s hand and we all walked into the dining room.
After them pestering Justin asking him questions about sports and his future we were done eating. My sister and I decided to clean the table and I kissed Justin on the cheek and got all the dirty plates off the table and took them into the kitchen.
We were putting things in the dishwasher when my sister smiled, “So I’m guessing he’s your boyfriend…”, “Good job captain obvious!” I said laughing. “Aww, my sister has a boyfriend.” I slapped her playfully on the arm and walked back to the dining room where Justin and my mom were talking about medical school and how she got her job. “Ok mom.. I think he’s heard enough!”, “No Selena It’s fine.” He said pulling me down to sit in his lap.
I looked at the clock and saw it was 9. “Well Justin should probably head home.” I said standing up. “Ok, Bye Justin. It was good meeting you!” Carly said. We were walking towards the door and Carly yelled, “Don’t you ever hurt my sister!” laughing. “Sorry about them..” ,”Its ok, I had fun.”
I walked him out to his car. “Bye Justin, thanks for coming!” I gave him a quick peck on the lips and started walking away when I felt his hands grab my waist and pull me around into a kiss. I wrapped my arms his neck, running my fingers through his hair. We were making out for a good 3 minutes, our tongues fighting for dominance when he finally pulled away. Our faces were still inches away from eachothers.”Sorry, I just couldn’t resist. I needed that.” He said out of breath. I smiled and gave him another quick peck on the lips.
“Have I ever told you how much I love you?” He said. “No,but I kind of get the idea, I smiled. He got back in his car and I walked inside. My mom and sister were standing there smiling. “Yall are such creepers.” I said laughing. “Yall are so precious!” Carly said.
I told them both goodnight and went upstairs and washed my face, changed into one of Justin’s shirts I had and got in bed. I texted Justin,
Selena: Thanks again for coming J
Justin: Anything for you babe, love you.
Selena: Love you too.
I smiled and rolled over, falling fast asleep.
