5. truth or dare?


   We arrive at the beach. Three of my cousins are already almost drunk. Ann and I spot a bonfire with people singing and playing music, and decide to go there since none of us wanted to get completely wasted and dancing feels wrong since it’s too early. We take our shoes off and hold them, letting the warm sand tickle our toes. Ann immediately notices a cute guy and I tell her to go introduce herself to him, but her answer is ‘after a drink or two maybe’, so we grab two breezers and sit by the fire, trying to keep it light until we get comfortable. My phone rings. ‘Hello?’ –‘Ivy, it’s Olive. You won’t believe who’s here.’ –‘Is it Aiden?’ ‘I think it is..I mean I haven’t seen him before but he matches your description. He’s tall, black eyes and hair..’ My heart starts beating twice as fast as before. ‘Where are you? know what? Don’t tell me. If he wants me he’ll find me, right?’ Ann, who has been listening to our conversation, slightly punches my shoulder and orders me to follow her eyes. I do. I spot him right away- he’s the only one with his shirt still on. Bummer.  My cheeks turn red at that thought. But he’s looking gorgeous. Black shirt and a casual pair of jeans, and barefoot. There’s a guitar on his right arm and a beer on his left. He seems to look my way and smile. I smile back, thankful for the dark keeping my red cheeks from humiliating me.

      As he starts getting closer, I notice he’s not smiling at me. ‘Aidoooo, pal, come here, we’ve missed you!’ shouts the guy who previously caught Ann’s attention, as everyone welcomes Aiden, clapping and shouting his name. ‘I see your boy is quite popular around here. We seem to be the only ones not knowing him’. ‘Yeah..looks like he’s not who I thought he was.’ ‘You wanna get out of here?’ ‘No, no, you should go talk to that guy. Don’t let me ruin the party.’ ‘Maybe later. But right now, I’m getting us something to drink. Something less light than this’ she adds, shaking her breezer. ‘I’m coming with you’.




      Shit. They saw me. I came here to spend time with Ivy, not those guys. Partying was great, but I’m over those things now. I want to talk to her, but she’s leaving. She must think I’m a dick. But I’m not giving up so easily. If there’s one girl worth fighting for, it’s her. I can feel it. ‘Hey guys. I’m sorry, but there’s something I need to do.’ ‘Oh some on Aid, we can all see you holding that guitar. Just one song,  please?’ shouts Jeremy, with an arrogant smile on his face. He’s starting to get on my nerves. I hear a voice behind me. ‘That’s my guitar, Jer. How about I play a song for you guys?’ I turn around and see Jay, who grabs my guitar and whispers to my ear ‘I got this, man. Go get her’ and walks to the crowd next to the fire while everyone cheers.  I’ve always appreciated Jay, but right now words couldn’t express how grateful I was for what he did for me. Specially when I knew how much he hated singing in front of others, even though he’s way better than everyone I’ve ever heard. I turn around and go seek for Ivy.



    Olive had found a great guy to talk to, and was somewhere on the beach with him, and I was trying not to let my bad mood ruin this night for Ann. Chris, another cousin and close friend of mine, and Athena invite us to play truth or dare with them and a bunch of strangers and we accept, thinking that would be interesting. I hear someone next to me politely asking me

if he’s allowed to play and I immediately tell him to sit along, without looking at him. The game starts and everyone introduces themselves. After my turn, I hear ‘Hello, my name’s Aiden’. I stop breathing and look right next to me. There he was, with his clever eyes starring right into mine, so close that our breaths could become one if I managed to exhale, his thighs touching mine, his arms right next to mine. Thankfully, Ann isn’t in such a shock and asks ‘So,Aiden, truth or dare?’ ‘Dare’. I cannot believe the words coming out of her mouth when she says ‘I dare you to kiss the person on your left. Oh, look, that’s Ivy!’ I look at her both shocked and speechless, and she acts like she doesn’t notice my look. ‘Well, what are you waiting for?’


        ‘Eeeeeh, approval?’ asks Aiden. ‘I don’t  think that’s on the rules’ says Ann with a naughty look on her face. I finally achieve to take a deep breath, right before feeling his lips on mine. He hesitates at first, but then starts moving them, carefully playing with mine. I have my eyes closed, but I can sense everyone’s eyes on us. He places his left arm around my neck and softly touches it before pulling away. I immediately feel alone, sensible, weak. I am surprised to find out that I want more, way more. Everyone congratulates Aiden and Ann winks at me, satisfied with herself. I get up, excuse myself and go to grab another drink, giving myself some space to recover.
