Okay, everyone!

This chapter is reaaaaly long so it's going to be parted in two parts! I hope it's okay x



The night was getting closer and Kathrine, Jade and Skylar Umma and I sat down doing our make-up and hair. Jade turned on the curling iron and orded me to sit. We were in Kathrines home, upstairs at her room and the music was blasting loudly from the speakers. We were listening to some kind of k-pop song which, no surprise, Skylar Umma has chosen. Jade and Kathrine digged the song and they danced a bit, following the beat of the song. Skylar Umma beamed at the two dancing and she loved they liked the song.

After a few hours of preparation we were all set. All of our hair was set perfectly and the dresses fitted us amazingly. Actually, I think I look quite dashing if I may say. The black dress I was dressed in slimmed to my body and for the first time in a long time I felt beautiful. I blushed.

“Okay, are we all ready?” Jade cooed while smiling widely. We all shouted yeah and laughed. We went down stairs where Skylar ummas parents stood ready with a camera to take some pictures. Halfway down the stairs her mom yelled “Stop! Right there, yes, now pose” she ordered and we obeyed the order. We posed, smiled and looked into the camera lens. We saw the flash of the camera and her dad gave us a thumb up.

“You girls look stunning!” he complimented us and we walked all the way down the stairs. Skylar umma hugged her parents tightly and we waved good bye. Jade’s older brother Jack picked us up in his big car and as we seated in the backseat of the car, he sent me a cheeky smile. I blushed and tried to ignore his gesture.  I would lie if I said Jack wasn’t hot, but since he’s Jades older brother I wouldn’t have a chance. I’m sure he won’t date his little sisters friends.

“Ladies! Are we ready for tonight?” he asked while driving out of the driveway of the house. We all nodded and howled of excitement.

“All ready for tonight! If it wasn’t for Lotus we wouldn’t be on the way to freaking Angelo’s annual party!” Skylar umma squealed and sent me a grateful smile. I could see him raising his eyebrows in the back mirror and he looked lost at Jade. “Oh, how come?”. Jade giggled and turned her head towards me.

“This lady-“ Jade began and pointed at me. “Is in contact with Angelo and she got us the invites!” Jack pouted.

“Wow! I’ve never heard Angelo ever doing that! He must like you very much then” he explained and I gaped at him. Angelo liking me? Yeah right, and I’m married to Brad Pitt.

“Don’t count on that! Angelo is one of the most heartless persons I’ve ever met, so the possibility of him liking me is ridiculously small” I said and laughed. “And he wouldn’t have any chance what so ever” I exclaimed and smiled.

I saw Jack smile at my response and I heard him mumble “Well then I might have a chance”. I raised my eyebrows and came to realize he didn’t even know I heard it. Jades older brother, one of the most beautiful creatures I’ve ever seen aka Jack wished he has a chance with me. Oh my.

I felt a buzz in my purse and I slipped my hand down there and found my phone. I looked and saw another text from Angelo. I frowned.


To: Lotus

From: Angelo

Hey Lotus

You always seem to surprise me with your beauty

Can’t wait to see you

Meet me in the garden at 11 pm

Don’t be late


Huh? He wants to meet me and I chuckled. Kathrine smiled and turned to me. “What’s up?” she asked me. I showed her the text and waited for her to respond. Her reaction was wild. She gaped at me and couldn’t say a word. She began silent and moved closer to me.

“How long have this been going on?” she asked me simply and looked expectant at me. I took a deep breath, wondering how the put this.

“Erm.. Since I started here he had been a pain in the ass, always sending me smiles, trying to make out with me so on. It’s getting a bit annoying and somehow he has gotten my number and he keep sending me texts ect. To be honest, I wish he would leave me alone” I explained with a low voice. Skylar, Jack and Jade were having a very loud conversation, so I don’t think they noticed me and Kathrines chit chat.

“Wow.. Consider yourself lucky! If he likes a girl, he’ll do anything to get her attention, give her presents, compliment her and so on. Brace yourself for cheeky Angelo!” she teased and giggled. I don’t find this funny.

At all.

I just wish this would end and I could win this bet. I never thought this bet would annoy me this much.

I frowned. I rolled my eyes and buried my head in my hands. Ugh.

“Is it really that bad?” she asked and lifts my head up so I face her directly.

“Yes, indeed.”

Kathrine laughed at me and shook her head. She hugged me comforting and kissed my hair. I sighed.

“So, my ladies, we’re here! I shall open the doors for you so keep your behinds placed on the seats” he said and walked out of the car. He opened all the doors and everyone was out instead of me. As he walked to my door he opened and reached to my hand, kissing my knuckles. He helped me get out of the car and I blushed.

“Wow, what a gentleman” I say and smiled.

“Anything for you, my lady” he teases and sent one of his amazing smiles. He released my hand and we star awkwardly at each other.

“Come on, Lotus! Party time!” Skylar umma announces and I feel a drag in my arm. I wave good bye at Jack who looked quite surprised at me suddenly leaving him. I laughed and waved good bye. He waved back still gutted of me leaving.

I turned my head and changed my attention to the huge house we were walking towards to. It was a huge 3 floor house; build with bricks painted in white and covered with a huge green lawn, decorated with millions of flowers. The roof was black and in the windows could we see loads of people dancing and drinking. The sky was dark and the only light in miles came from the house and we walked at the little road of stone, lying from the road to the front door.

As we came up there the front door opened and a scent of alcohol and teenage sweat locate in our nostrils. The music was pumping loud from the speakers and we could feel the base vibrate through the air. A familiar face walked towards us wearing a white shirt and a pair of jeans. His shoulders were covered by a black blazer and he was wearing his casual converse.  Angelo smiled at us and looked sternly at me. I took a deep breath trying to calm my body. That guy does something to me and I don’t like it. Especially when it’s Angelo we’re talking about.

“Hello ladies, welcome in” he say and gestures with his hand that we should go in. We walk right pass him finding ourselves walking into a completely new world of drunk teenagers and loud music. The air was thick and the floor was filled with dancing people, jumping, rubbing up at each other and for some reason having fun while doing it.

“Well hello girls, fancy seeing you here!” I heard a familiar voice shouting over the loud music. We turned and saw the guys come closer to us. Dominic sent me a surprised smile when he saw me all dressed up and looking a whole lot better than usual.

He went closer to me and said “Looking good tonight”.

I smiled and replied “You too”

Out of the corner of my eye I could see Angelo looking coldly at me and Dominic talking and being close. He sat down in a couch surrounded by his friends drinking booz and being flirted with by number of girls. It seemed he didn’t care about the girls and only had his attention headed towards me. I cringed.

The music changed song and I smiled when I heard the song that was playing. It was Glad You Came by The Wanted and I squealed.

“Someone, please go with me to the dance floor and dance with me! I love this song” I stated and looked around the circle of people we were standing in. Dominic volunteered and soon we were on the dance floor jumping and dancing around. Angelo laid his hands around my waist and danced with me. My heat pumped hard in my chest and I felt enormously happy in that moment. I forgot about all my thoughts and just danced, lived life and just had fun. We danced the whole song and after it ended we went back to the group who now sat down and talked in a couple of sofas.

“I see you two had quite a fun out there?” I heard Ryan tease while I slipped down exhausted into the sofa. Dominic seated himself into a chair next to Milo and Sebastian. All the girls and Ryan sat down into the sofa, squeezed together and talked.

“Yes? Somebody seems jealous” I stated teasingly and took a sip of a bottle of coke I grabbed on the way in the house. Ryan huffed and shook his head and smiled.

“Nah. I’d rather think a curtain Angelo would, but not me” he said and took a sip of his bottle of vodka. I could see that everyone in here was either wasted or high and then there was me: Lotus, the girl with the coke.

I don’ like being drunk or high, well. I’ve never tried it but I certainly don’t count on trying. I don’t get why people get drunk. You feel horrible day next day and while being drunk you can’t control your actions.

Not my style.

I checked my phone to see what the clock was and it showed 7:49 pm. I took a deep breath and drank the rest of the coke.

“Will you excuse me, I’m going to the ladies room” I lied and went up. I walked along the dance floor, my pumps tapping on the floor and walked to the nearest exit. I opened the door and came to realize I finally was in the garden. The garden was huge; lighten up by candles placed around the garden. Along the lawn there was small plant sculptures placed in lines and with a lane of stone in the middle. In the end of the lane of stone there was a little pavilion with two chairs and a table set up and it was covering up in plants and flowers. I gaped at the beauty of this place. How can this be more beautiful? This is amazing.
