Love and Loss

Amber comes to stay with her aunt for the summer and stumbles upon two brothers who lead a simple life. She falls in love with one, who turns out to be her summer romance. A sudden tragic event occurs, leaving all love an afterthought.


12. "I love you."


"Let’s jump." Cole said while sliding his chocolate milk stained shirt off his body. Did he really just take his shirt off? I just stared at him like he was crazy. And I wasn't staring at his face.

"Um, okay." I replied, shocked. I looked down from the thick branch we were sitting on. The Oak tree stretched across the exquisite lake. The view was gorgeous. I stood up, balancing myself. I then stripped off my t shirt and shorts, revealing my floral print bathing suit. Not the ugly old lady floral print though.

I smiled and gripped Cole's hand. "Ready?"


We both jumped off the branch and splashed into the water laughing. I rose from under the water to catch my breath. I trudged out of the water and dangled myself like a monkey from the rope that hung off one of the tree's branches. I walked backwards until the rope wouldn't stretch anymore and ran towards the lake. I let go of the rope when I was hovering over the lake and plummeted in the water, splashing Cole.

I was on Cole's back, floating in the water. Everything was silent and I just hung on his back, smiling over nothing. I just like being with him.

"Hey Amber?"

"Yes Cole?"

He paused and didn't say anything for a moment. I rested my head on his shoulder, looking at the side of his face. He turned to me and smiled.

"I love you" He finally replied.

"What?" I asked, hopping off his back.

He looked at me with confusion. "I said I love you."

 My mom always told me love is a strong word and to never say it unless I truly mean it, just so I wouldn't get my heart broken. I'm fourteen and haven't even had a boyfriend yet. I don't even know what it's like to love. To be honest, I don't believe love is one complete thing. Love is a bunch of memories, laughter, and emotions thrown together. How am I supposed to know if saying those three words are going to cause me heartbroken if I never try? 

I stared into his brown, luring eyes and replied "I love you too."
