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...


26. Part 26

“What’s going to happen when you leave in a week?” I asked sadly after we had made our way to the beach. We sat there, I was leaning up against him and he had his arms wrapped around me.
“I’m still yours, and you’re still mine.” Harry whispered into my hair.
“You know what I mean, Harry. I’m a mess without you here.”
“You have your friends.” Harry said kissing my head.
“But I want you here.”
“I want to be here too but it doesn’t work that way. The summer is almost over and I need to get back home with my friends.”
“I want to go with you.”
“No…that’s not how it works. You’re life in here.”
“My life is where you are.” I whispered.
“Stop right there; I love you, okay? I’m not going to leave you, but I do need to go home. As badly as I want you to come with me and stay with me, or as badly as I want to stay here with you, the summer is ending and we both knew this was going to happen.”
“You’re mine, Bethany. You always will be, but we both knew this day was coming.”
“You make it sound like you’re breaking up with me…” I whispered, tears forming in my eyes.
“No, not at all. But I have to leave and you have to stay.” I nodded and looked out over the ocean, watching the sunset. I know Harry was trying not to break my heart, but deep down I knew what was happening and what he was saying, and I knew I was going to have a broken heart within a week.

She knew what I was saying, and I know she did. I didn’t want to leave her but what choice did I really have? She lived in California and I lived in England. There was no way that this was going to work for either of us. Our lives were too different and too far away. I wasn’t going to officially leave her but I knew she was going to leave me at some point, and I knew she was going to be okay without me. Me on the other hand, I knew I would always love her, but her heart was so strong that I knew she would fall in love with someone else, and that was going to be it. And at that point, I knew I would be out of the picture so I was going to let it run its course and then let her go.
On our last night spent together, Bethany was standing on the beach with her surfboard. She was finally cleared to get back into the ocean and she looked scared and determined. She looked back at me and I nodded at her. She looked back and dove into the ocean and started swimming out. I smiled, watching her go out there, almost like she hadn’t lost her touch at all.

Harry leaves tomorrow. I had a feeling that meant it was over. I was however, going to make our last moments last. My whole summer was about love, my mom, and Harry showed me about both. He showed me everything. He taught me everything I needed to know. I sighed when I got to where I used to surf. I looked back at the beach and saw everyone I had met this summer, my brother, and all my friends gathered behind Harry, watching. I smiled to myself and suddenly felt like my mom was right next to me. I looked up and took in the little bit of sun that was shining down from behind the clouds.
“I love you mommy…this is for you.” I whispered as a wave came up behind me. I started paddling forwards and slowly started to stand up. I closed my eyes, held my breath, and suddenly felt everything I was worried about leave. I opened my eyes and realized everyone on the shore was clapping and jumping up and down, and most likely screaming. I smiled to myself as tears filled my eyes.
I was riding the wave.
