Riding The Wave

I'm your typical Malibu Barbie as some people call me. I live my life travelling around, and basically surfing. However, after my mom passes away surfing becomes difficult for me, the typical summer drama comes up, and I begin to feel lost within myself. I feel like I won't be able to live through this summer, until I finally let Harry get to me...


11. Part 11

When we got to Grant’s party, there were people outside around a bonfire. Everyone called to us when they saw us walking up. Mel came running over and threw her arms around me.

“I’ve missed seeing you around.” She slurred into my ear, already tipsy.

“I’ve missed you too babe.”

“Why are you and Harry holding hands?”


“We’re dating.” Harry cut in for me. Her eyes grew wide and Mel turned back to me.

“WHEN WERE YOU GOING TO TELL ME?!” She yelled, drawing attention to us.

“Mel, lower your voice. It only happened about five minutes ago.” Her drunken smile reappeared on her face and she grabbed my face with both her hands.

“I love you.” She said before smacking a slobbery kiss on my cheek. I winced and gave her a half smile.

“I love you too babe.” She grabbed my other free hand and dragged Harry and I over to the bonfire. We were both passed beers that Harry opened for both of us. We cuddled up to each other as we watched amongst ourselves while everyone else talked around us.



It kind of bothered me seeing Bethany with Harry. Harry was a great guy but I still sort of had feelings for her. She was a great girl, and one of my best friends. I didn’t want her with anybody else.

“GUYS, CAN WE PLAY TRUTH OR DARE!” Someone suggested. We all agreed to it and Toby started.

“Mel, truth or dare?”


“Who do you like?” She blushed red and smirked.

“Grant.” She smiled and waved to me. I gave her a half smile and waved back.

“Bethany, truth or dare?” Mac asked. I shot him a look since he knew I still liked her.

“Dare.” She said, smiling.

“I dare you to kiss Grant.”



I didn’t want to kiss Grant. I looked over at him and he was smiling at me. I turned to look at Harry who was looking at me questioningly.

“Is it okay…?” I asked him.

“Why wouldn’t it be?” Grant snapped.

“Because he’s my boyfriend!” I shot back, making everyone go quiet.

“I’ll kiss him for her.” Mel said, standing up and stumbling over to me. Mel planted a wet one on Grant and went back for more. They started making out in front of everyone and I tried not to puke at the sight.



Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Bethany wincing so I kept kissing Mel. If it bothered Bethany, I would use Mel to get to Bethany. Besides, as soon as the summer was over I could dump Mel, Harry would be gone, and Bethany would be all mine again; perfect plan, right?

For the next couple hours we played truth or dare and never have I ever. I can tell you know, I learned a lot about people there. Since most of us were drunk, we would all go into detail about what we’ve done or haven’t done and why. It sure as hell was one interesting night.

At the end of the night, when people started leaving, I asked Mel to stay the night with me. She obviously agreed. I brought her back up to my room and allowed her to crash there. I smirked and fell down next to her to make it look like stuff had gone down last night so I could tell her some bullshit story that she would tell Bethany, and it would make her jealous and I would have her crawling back to me within weeks.



I decided to spend the night at Harry’s that night. He carried me home since I was pretty drunk. I had practically fallen asleep in his arms on the way back to his house, but I knew he would keep me safe, so I wasn’t worried. That was the difference between Harry and Grant; Grant wouldn’t keep me safe when he was drunk, I was the one who had to watch him. So being taken care of for a change is a very nice feeling; a feeling I wouldn’t mind in the long run. In fact, I loved being taken care of. Since my mom is gone, I needed someone to take care of me. It’s almost like Harry was meant to be here this summer to watch over me and keep me in line. And I didn’t mind at all.
