15. Mistakes

Carter's P.O.V.

The next day after school, opening the door of my house, I found Callum and Kevin already fishing out food from the fridge.

"I'm home!" I screamed.

"Hey little bunny. How was school? I assume you had a fun day," Kevin making his way towards me. Standing in front of him, he placed his hand on my head and  ruffled my hair. What was this? I suddenly found the space between us closing in, my heartbeat picking up speed. Looking past my shoulder, he saw the figures of several other people.

"You invited the guys here?" he said.

"Yeah, I already called mom telling her that I'm bringing friends over. Zeland said they wanted to hang out with you," I said raising my face up to see his.

Leaning in closer for only me to hear, he said,"Have you ever thought of that as excuse to get closer to you?" Seeing my flushed expression, he patted me on the shoulder. "Just kidding. Go and change and come eat."

"You know you sound like mom right now, right?" I whined.

"Well who else is supposed to take care of you?" he responded.

"Um, I'm right here, you know," said Callum between his teeth holding a bowl of popcorn in one arm, a soda in the other, and carrying a bag of chips in his teeth.

"And you think I'm going to put her in your care? I don't think so," said Kevin. Ushering the guys inside, they took of their shoes and placed their bags by the door. they exchanged greetings with fist pumps and bro hugs.

"So, this is what the living space of Carter's looks like," said Damian.

"Nothing special," said Lewis.

"I'm just going to go to my room and change. You guys wanted to watch a movie a movie, right? There's a bunch of movies under the TV. Just make yourselves comfortable. Callum! at least save us some of the snacks!" I said making my way towards the stairs.

"Yeah, Callum. She said to share," said Aiden.

Making my way towards  my bedroom, I heard Damian say," Are there any war movies we can watch?" Zelo responded with,"I'm tired of watching war movies!"


Zelo's P.O.V.

"Um, where is the bathroom?" I asked Callum.

"Second floor first door to the left," he said through all of the food in his mouth. Or i thought he said. I made my way up the carpeted stairs. First door on the left. With my right hand hovering above the door knob, I had a bad feeling about this. Shaking the feeling away, I grabbed the door knob and opened the door. A high pitched scream pierced my hears. Standing in front of me was Carter wearing shorts and a tank top holding her uniform. There I was, frozen from the shock.

"Oh my goodness, close the door!" she screamed. Flustered, I closed my eyes and tried to reach for the door knob. I heard footsteps coming closer, then the door slammed shut. "Next time, knock the door before you enter!" she yelled from the inside. Standing outside her bedroom, I leaned my back against her door. God, what am I supposed to do?I ran back downstairs. I didn't have to use the bathroom anymore.

"Dude, did you just go into Carter's bedroom?" asked Gabriel. From my shocked expression, they took that as a yes.

"Hey, I said the bathroom was the first door on the right!" yelled Callum.

"Well, if you stopped eating like a pig and chewed before you spoke, I wouldn't have gone into the wrong room! Therefore, it's partially your fault!" I yelled back, my face still red. That shut him up.

"Did you see anything?" whispered Damian with a grin on his face. A boy was a boy, no matter how nerdy.

"NO! I didn't see anything!" I screamed waving my hands around furiously.

"You better have not," threatened Kevin and Callum in unision.

"Hey, the movie's starting! Shh!" said Damian. At his words, everyone ran towards the sofa. Taking my time, I took my seat at the end.

"What? You started the movie without me?" Carter said as she ran down the stairs. Hoping she wouldn't see me, I turned my body away from her.

"Really? Your worrying about that? He didn't do anything bad to you, right? If you want, I could snap him like a twig!" stated Gabriel cracking his knuckles. Not being able to take the awkward feeling inside of me, I got up from my seat and headed to the kitchen. Sitting at the counter, I heard footsteps coming closer.


Kevin's P.O.V.

From the corner of my eye, I could see Carter following Zelo into the kitchen. What were they going to talk about?

"Hey are you guys-" I said on my way to the kitchen when I saw Carter sit, in my eyes, a little bit too close to Zelo when I cut myself off. Hoping they didn't see or hear me, I hid behind the kitchen door.

"Um, yeah. Sorry about earlier," he said running his hand through his hair. He still wouldn't look at her.

"Well, I can't lie and say I forgive you," she replied.

"No, really! It was an accident!" he said finally being able to see her eye to eye. He really was scared she might think bad about him.

"It's okay, Zeland. You didn't let me finish," Taking a deep breath, she continued. "I'm not going to act like that accident never happened. But I don't want that to let us be awkward towards each other. If anything, it should bring us closer together."

"Really? Oh my gosh, you've got to be kidding me. That sounded so gross," asked Zelo raising an eyebrow. After a few seconds, he broke out with laughter.

"Look, at least I'm trying! And it's your fault!" she said punching his arm continuously.

"I can't take it. It's too funny. You were wearing a top anyways," he said between laughs.

"Still! I liked you better when you were uncomfortable. Whatever, I'm leaving," she said making her way towards the door. Running towards the living room before she could see me, I sat down in the seat beside Callum.

"Hey, you missed the beginning," whispered Callum.

"Shh! I can't hear anything!" said Damian.

"It's just gun shots!" replied Chris to Damian. Just then, Carter took the seat beside me, while Zelo took the single chair on her other side. I heard a little giggle come from her. 

Carter, I came back to get closer to you, I thought to myself, not to watch you flirt with someone else. Let me show you a better me. I can't lose you right before me eyes. The you who used to think I was great at doing everything. The you who always found a way to make me smile. The you who silently found her way into my heart.
