Angelina Thomson is a 16 year old junior at Pinewood High School in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. She wears her heart on her sleeve, making it easy for any guy to come by and snatch it. In this case, this guy's name is Skylar Brookshire. He has her wrapped around his finger, leading her on then cutting her off, until she learns how to protect herself from the affliction and contentment of the game of love.


5. Too Good to be True

-Angelina's POV-


       So, if you want the truth, it was one of the most torturous nights of my life. I can't even begin to explain what it felt like when she was telling me about all of their cute conversations, and I'm just sitting there, nodding and giggling and acting like I'm happy for her. 'She deserves this. She's been waiting for this for so long. It's her turn now,' I kept telling myself. I don't know what's going to happen over the summer, but my gut is telling me that it won't be good.


"Hey, Angelina! I was wondering if you wanted to come over to my house and we could hang out at the pool. You can bring your sister, because her 2 friends and Skylar are coming! Call me back." I heard my friend Danielle say. It was kinda sad how fast I replied over text message, but come on. I had to go. Who in their right minds would pass up this opportunity?

       I grabbed my bikini, yelled at my sister, and hopped into the car. Bailey and I sped down the highway, blasting music. I could tell it wasn't only me who was glad that school was out. We pulled up in Danielle's driveway and I ran into her house so I could change. No one was here yet, so I was a little relieved. I slipped into my navy blue bandeau with tie-dyed bottoms, and began to take my makeup off. A burst of insecurity poured through my veins. No wonder Skylar doesn't like me. There are so many other girls out there who are ten times prettier than me. I sighed and reluctantly went back downstairs.


       I was surprised to see everyone downstairs already.


"Where were you? We've been waiting!" Skylar said, smiling. I swear, I will never figure out this boy.

We proceeded to walk to the pool (thankfully Danielle's house was not far from it, only a few blocks) and it was like nothing ever happened. Something in my mind as saying, "C'mon man. You ignored me all year and now you're gonna act like nothing happened?"  but I pushed the voices in my head away. Nothing was going to ruin this day, it might be the last one like it.


I could not have thought of a better day. The sun was shining, the weather was hot, and everyone was in a fantabulous mood. I'm not going to say I didn't enjoy it when Skylar playfully pushed me in the pool, and the face he made when I grabbed onto him and pulled him in with me. I not going to say I didn't enjoy it when he made stupid little jokes and teased me, trying to get my attention. The way he said my name, the way he tried to teach me how to play volleyball, the way he did everything. It was captivating.

       To be completely honest with you, all thoughts of Roxanne slipped from my mind. When I'm around him, I forget about everything. I didn't think about what he put me through in the past year, I didn't think about all the things that would never be, I just thought about the moment, and how I wished it would stay like this forever. I'm just so confused; when I'm at home, the stuff he does makes me cry myself to sleep at night, but when I'm with him, it's like I'm completely defenseless. I build the walls up so high around my heart and then I see his smile and they all come crashing down. To make it extremely cheesy, I guess you could say he's my kryptonite.


       So the fun was over, it was getting dark and we decided to head home. I felt like I was floating on cloud 9. This is the moment I had been waiting for during those four months that he completely ignored me. It was all coming true.

       We got back to Danielle's house and she took out the chips and salsa. Everyone started digging in, and I didn't hesitate; today was exhausting. You know the feeling when you're eating chips and then all of a sudden you can't stop and then you end up eating the whole bag? Yeah, well that's kind of what happened. Embarrassing, right? I got down to the last quarter of the bag when I finally yelled laughing, "Someone, come take these away from me!"

       We moved our party into the living room when Danielle popped in A Walk to Remember. I quickly took the spot on the sofa next to Skylar, very un-suspectingly. During the movie, I couldn't tell if it was me getting closer to him, or him getting closer to me, because by the end of the movie there was literally no space between us. 'Why can't it just stay like this forever?' I thought.

       Sadly though, the fun had to end, and we all had to go home. I gave everyone a hug goodbye (btdubs... did I ever mention how good Skylar's Dolce & Gabanna cologne smelt? Just throwing that out there...)  and got into my sister's car, inhaling the sweet scent of the summer air. I just felt so happy in that moment, but something in the back of my mind way whispering, "Savor it. It might not happen again."



Okay, I know. It's been about two months since I've updated my Movella. Sorry about that. With school starting and everything, I just haven't had very much extra time. And the extra time I do have is normally spent on useless stuff like YouTube and TV (haha). Anyway, I've given up on trying to make myself update on a regular basis, so don't get your hopes up. I'll try harder next time :P
