But one day something happens that changes everything. William, her childhood love from London has moved to the USA to look for her but he realizes she has moved on past him. Will Carrie remember William?


4. I Love You

When I got home, I ran upstairs to my room and threw myself on the bed still crying. My mother wasn’t at home so I saved myself from giving any awkward explanations. I grabbed my phone and called Em, but she didn’t reply. A few minutes later, she sent me a text saying that she was busy with Kevin and that she couldn’t talk. So I just laid there alone, thinking about what had happened before with John, and about how sorry I felt for the fight. He was right, because as much as I wanted it to not be true, William did still have feelings for me, I could notice. But I didn’t feel anything for him anymore. We were strangers that used to know each other a LONG time ago. Yet, I didn’t like the fact that John was hanging out with Tanya, because she was a slut. And as she hated me, I knew that her intentions with him weren’t good.

Suddenly I got a text from John. “Hey babe, PLEASE forgive me, I was completely wrong and I am sorry, I can’t decide who you hang out with, and I shouldn’t spend so much time with Tanya. Would you go to the ball with me? I am sure you will love my suit. If you don’t believe me, go to the front door.” A small smile appeared on my lips as I read the text. I hurried downstairs and opened the door. John was standing there with a bunch of roses and a black suit. I jumped in his arms the instant I saw him. “I’m really sorry. I don’t wanna fight, I just want to be with you, and that’s the only thing I know for sure.” I said with my voice trembling. “Let’s just forget about it ok?” he said and gave me a kiss on the forehead “Now, I want to see that dress you say you bought.” 

I ran upstairs and left John with the TV. I got dressed as fast as I could, put make up on and tied my hair in a small ponytail, leaving a few hairs in the front. I curled my tips because they looked better that way. I put some perfume on and went downstairs with John. He was chatting with my mom.

“Hi sweety, oh you look beautiful!” said my mom as she came to give me a hug. “She does indeed” said John smiling. I took one of the roses he gave me and put it in his pocket, then, we headed to the ball.

When we got there, we just forgot about everyone else. We just danced with each other, his hands around my waist and mine around his neck. Nose to nose. Everything was so perfect, until his phone rang. “Oh no, I got a text from my father saying that my grandfather’s been involved in a car accident” he said sounding concerned. “Ok, just go to help. Let me know if you need anything, and I hope he’s ok.” I said to him. He gave me a really tight hug, and whispered in my year “I love you, do not ever forget that”. He gave me a soft kiss on the lips and run away. 

I was a little bit upset because I was alone at the ball, but at the same time, I felt really sorry for John and his grandfather, I mean, I would literally die if anything happened to my mother. 

I went to get something to drink, when I saw William sitting alone in the corner, so I went to say hi. “What are you doing here all by yourself?” I asked. “Well, my date never arrived” he said sadly “what about you? Where’s John?” “Oh, um, his grandfather was involved in a car accident and he had to go and help” I said looking down. I heard him mumble something, I think he said “yeah, sure, his grandfather” but I didn’t feel like asking, I mean, it probably wasn’t anything important. As we both were alone, I invited him to dance with me and he accepted. We danced, and chatted the whole night, and then, he walked me home.

“Do you really believe the grandfather story?” he asked nervously. “Well, of course” I said “why would he lie about that?” “I’m not saying he would, I’m just saying that you should watch him. I don’t want you to get hurt” he said, looking into my eyes, the same way he looked at my when I first saw him at geography class. Penetrating me. Touching my soul. 

I went inside the house and immediately turned into my pajamas and went to bed, as I was too tired to do anything else. I tried to sleep, but I couldn’t. I kept thinking of what William had said to me. What did he mean? Is he saying that John is lying about his grandfather? No, that can’t be. John trusts me and he would never lie to me about something that serious. He was a good guy after all. Was he?
