1. Chapter 1

~Chase's POV~

I dabbed the last bit of foundation on my face and smiled, satisfied with my look. I turned off my flat iron, after making sure my hair was completely straight enough for Benny. "Chase! Chase! Can you play Battleship with me?" My little brother, Danny yelled outside my bathroom door. I opened my door to see my little brother standing there, holding a box for the game Battleship. "Danny, I'm getting ready for my date. I'll play with you when I get home." I said. "Who's watching me? Mom is at work." He asked, placing the game on the ground. "I hired you a babysitter." I said smiling. Ok, I'm sure you're confused by now, so let me help you.

 

I'm Chase McLane, and I'm 16 years old. I live in Wolverhampton, England with my mom, and younger brother Danny. My father passed 5 years ago in a weird fire that started in my house. Sadly, he was the only one who didn't make it. So we moved from our burned down house in Florida, to here in Wolverhampton. We only moved here because my aunt lives here and my mom wanted to be closer to her. Me and my mom don't have a close relationship. In fact, we don't get along at all. I was way closer to my dad. But, I'm much closer to my brother. Lately, things haven't been going so well for me. I go to therapy twice a week because I've been depressed over the loss of my dad, even though it was five years ago. Every year gets worse for me, and sometimes I even cut. The first time was after one year, when I was twelve. It was really bad so I was sent to the hospital and put on medication. Other than therapy, things are worse. My mom has been nagging me about everything, and we just argue over every single thing. The only thing I look towards in life is Danny, and my boyfriend Benny. We've been dating for 2 years and that is another thing my mom nags me about. She hates Benny, and Danny has grown a disliking towards him as well. But, enough about my sad, and depressing teenage life.

 

I picked out a pretty dress, and stripped my robe off, and put on the outfit I laid out. I walked downstairs and waited with Danny for the babysitter to arrive. I don't know his name but he is 19 and I heard he is great with kids, so he should be a good babysitter. I was texting Benny on my phone, while Danny played on his X-Box.

"I'll be on my way in 5. Cant wait to see you:) <3" The text read. I smiled, and texted back but before I clicked send, the doorbell rung. I got up and opened the door. "Hi, you  must be the babysitter." I said. "Yes, I am. May I come in?" He asked. "Yes of course." I said moving aside so he could walk in.

"And your name is?" He asked, referring to my brother. "Danny, and this is my older sister Chase." He said. "What's your name?" I asked. "Liam." He smiled. I will admit, he was really cute. He had a quiff, and his eyes were so brown and beautiful. But what was most amazing about him was his smile. He was definitely adorable.

I was about to say something, but the door bell rang. "That's Benny. Bye Danny, have fun, I love you." I kissed his head, and gave him a hug and waved to Liam. I opened the door and kissed Benny, and walked out with him.

~Liam's POV~

When I rang the doorbell, the most beautiful girl I've ever seen opened the door. I walked in and learned her name was Chase and her younger brother was Danny. She was so pretty, her hair was straight, but I could tell it was naturally curly because it was a bit frizzed up, which was cute. Her eyes were the best part, they were icy blue and they were really adorable. 

I told her my name, and when she was about to say something, the doorbell rang. She hugged and kissed Danny goodbye and opened the door, and kissed a boy. Jealousy was eating my stomach alive, but I couldn't help it. I haven't even had a conversation with this girl, and I was falling for her hard.

"Ok bud, so what do you want to do?" I asked Danny. "Want to play Call of Duty with me?" He asked. I nodded, as he grabbed to controls and turned on his Play Station and we began playing. "Want some ice cream?" Danny asked. "Sure bud," He led me into the kitchen and got 2 bowls out and I grabbed a spoon and a fork. I put ice cream into 2 bowls.

"So Danny, why don't we get to know each other?" I asked to the cute 9 year old, stuffing his face in ice cream. "Speed round?" I nodded as he began. 

Danny: "Favorite movie?" 

Me: "Toy Story. Favorite soda?"

Danny: "Sprite. Hold are you?"

Me: "19. Birthday?"

Danny: "May 29th. Yours?"

Me: "August 29th. Hobbies?"

Danny: "Playing video games and sleeping. You?

Me: "Singing. How old is your sister?" He was caught of guard for a second, then answered. "16. Why....you like her?" He teased. "Why would I like your sister?" "Liam I may be 9, but you'll be surprised by how smart I am. People underestimate me but I can tell you like her by the way you look at her and why else would you want to how old she  is?" He asked.

"Fine you caught me. But you can't tell her. Deal?" I asked. He nodded and I grabbed both of our ice cream bowls and washed them.

~Chase's POV~

"Where we going?" I asked Benny in the driver's seat. "You'll see." He said. "You tell me that every time. Can't you just tell me where you're taking me?" I asked. "Take a look yourself." He said, parking his car near the beach. "The beach?" I asked. "Yup." He said smiling. I kissed his cheek and he got out, and opened my door for me.

He grabbed a blanket, picnic basket, and candles out of his trunk and lead me to the beach. He laid out the blanket on the soft part of the sand and lit 6 candles all around the blanket. We both laid down, and fed each other chocolate-covered strawberries. I laid my head on his chest as he stroke my hair.

"Have you ever thought of marriage?" He said out of nowhere. "Your not asking me to marry you are you?" I asked smirking. "No of course. Not yet anyway. But I want to spend the rest of my life with you." He poured. "Me too." I said, kissing his lips.

He got up and took a tiny box from his trousers. He got on one knee and opened the box revealing a diamond, infinity ring. "This ring represents our love for each other. We will forever love each other until we die. Promise?" He asked. "Of course babe." I said and kissed him. 

The rest of the night, we chased each other in the water, buried each other in the sand, and drank fancy wine (even though we're underage). He took me home and before I walked into the door, he spun me around and whispered, "I love you Chase McLane." "I love you also Benny Dale," I said and he leaned in.

~Liam's POV~

After getting to know more about each other, we played Battleship then watched Disney  movies. He got sleepy, so I got him blankets and pillows and put him to sleep on the couch. I heard laughing and giggling on the front porch and looked out the window and saw Chase and her boyfriend. They were giggling and whispering then I saw them kiss which honestly killed me inside.

Her boyfriend walked away, and before Chase walked in I acted like I was watching a movie the whole time. She walked into the house with a huge smile, and stopped when she saw me. "Ohh hi Liam," she said. "Hi." I smiled. "Thanks for watching Danny for me," she said. "No problem, he's awesome," I replied. 

She took a 20 out of her purse and handed it to me. "Thanks," I said. "Can I have your number in case I need you to babysit again? That's if you have time," she asked. "Yeah. And I can come anytime, I like Danny he's a fun 9 year old." I wrote my number for her on  a napkin and hugged her, then left.
