14. Chapter 13

*Natalie's POV*


It’s been two weeks since we went bowling. I've went on several dates with Bryan and I was getting to know him a lot better. I really really liked him, but we still hadn’t kissed. He would always try to lean in but I always made up an excuse and I really don’t know why I couldn’t get myself to do it.


On another note, Justin and I have also been spending some time together and we've become really close too. I've been spending most of my time with him, Chaz, Ryan, Ashley and Carly but the others almost always had excuses so I was left with Justin alone--not that I was complaining-- but I just found it a bit strange. They've also been acting weird around me. Like they would go whisper or smirk at each other or things like that and I wasn’t sure why. I didn’t let it bug me that much, but it still did.


Justin was also getting a lot of girls' attention since he came here. And it was probably because he was hot. Girls would always just throw themselves at him and he mostly ignored them. This one time, however, I really got pissed.




Me and Justin were just finished with Math and we had lunch. He was leaned up against his locker as I put my stuff away. When I turned around he was standing right behind me, staring intently into my eyes.


"Hey Natie," he said.


"Uhh hi Justin?" I replied but it came out more like a question. He laughed. "Didnt we already say hey in the morning?" I asked.


"Yeah but I felt like saying hi again." We both laughed. He licked his lips out of habit and bit his bottom one. He looked so sexy like that. He came closer and wrapped his arms around my waist. "You know I never got that kiss," he whispered in my ear.


After two weeks I had learned how to hide the affect he had on me, so I didn’t shiver or stutter whenever he did things like that. And believe me, he did it often, but he always made sure I knew he was joking.

"Mhhhmm," I answered.


"Well, I think we’re in the perfect position for you to give me one now," he stated, pecking my neck lightly. I wrapped my arms around his neck.


"Now we are," I said. We started laughing and were soon interrupted by a small cough.


I let go of Justin and he looked behind him. It was Claire. I honestly have nothing against her, but her reputation here stinks. She’s known for sleeping around with almost every guy in school.


“Hey Justin,” she said, biting her lip. I rolled my eyes.


She was wearing a crop top that showed a bit too much and some shorts. Well, they didn’t really count as shorts since half her butt was hanging out. I really don’t get why she wears things like that to school, I mean this isn’t a strip club.


I turned my attention back to the conversation. She didn’t even acknowledge me. “Umm Claire right? You’re in my English class.” Justin said.


“Uh huh. You know, you’re pretty hot,” she said, flirtatiously, twirling a piece of her hair as she chewed on her gum.  


“Um thanks?” Justin replied scratching the back of his neck.


“Maybe we could hang out sometime?” She asked, fluttering her eyebrows and brushing her hand on Justin’s arm softly.


“Yeah.. We could,” Justin replied. I couldn’t help notice his gaze trailing down her entire body and taking in every inch of it. He licked his lips.


“Bye Justy,” she stated, kissed his cheek and then whispered something I couldn’t hear.


Once she started walking away Justin just stared at her ass. Ew. I wanted to slap him and slap her twice as hard. Who did she think she was hitting on him like that? And the fact that he was checking her out and had thoughts about ‘hanging out’ with her disgusted me.


“Earth to Justin,” I said as I waved a hand in front of his face.


“Whaa?” he asked, facing me.


“You’re disgusting,” I said, shaking my head and walking away. He caught up to me.


“And why is that might I ask?”


“Do you even know who that is?” I questioned him.


“Um no.”


“Well let’s just say she has a pretty bad reputation around here and she’s known for sleeping with almost every guy in this school.”


“Oh um.. I’m sorry,” Justin said.


“There’s no need to apologize Justin, I just don’t want you to be one of the guys she uses,” I said. After that we were quiet, and whenever a girl would come up and do the same thing Claire did, Justin would just ignore her or say no.


*end of flashback*


Today was Wednesday and I was currently at my locker, getting my stuff cause we were all supposed to meet up at Ashley’s locker before going to lunch. Oddly, I didn’t see Justin at his locker.


I got my things and sped off down the halls towards Ashley’s locker. They were all standing in a circle and they didn’t seem to notice I was there.


“What am I supposed to do?” Justin asked.


“All you can do is wait.” Carly replied.


“But I can’t wait any longer, I feel like its eating me up inside, I need to tell her.” He said.


“But Natalie – NATALIEE!” Chaz said upon noticing me. They all looked to each other, with worried faces. “


Are you guys okay?” I asked and they looked at me for a split second before looking back at each other.


“Um yeah were perfectly fine,” Carly said.


“Oo-kayy…” I trailed off. Justin came and wrapped his arm around my shoulder.


“C’mon let’s get going,” he said and we started to walk towards the cafeteria and my mind was whirling with a thousand thoughts. What the hell were they talking about? And why did the suddenly change the subject when they noticed me? Did they not trust me? I really felt like I was left out and unwanted.


After lunch Justin and I had free period. We just walked around school like we always did. I decided to bring up the subject.


“Hey Justin?”




“Do you trust me?” That caught his attention and he turned towards me.


“Ofcourse I trust you, Natie. Why would you even ask that?” He stated, looking hurt more than anything else. “


I’m sorry Justin, I didn’t mean-” I was cut off by a pair of arms wrapping around my waist. I was shocked at first but then I slowly wrapped my arms around Justin’s neck. “You can tell me anything you know that right?” I whispered to him.


“Uh huh,” Justin replied. He still didn’t tell me about what they were talking about. I just gave up and we went back to what we regularly did.






On Thursday, they talked yet again about whatever it was they were keeping from me.


“Justin she can’t know yet,” Chaz explained.


“I know man but it’s just everytime I’m near her I get this urge to kiss her and I can’t take it anymore.” Justin said back, sounding frustrated. They were standing by Justin’s locker and they obviously hadn’t realized that I was the one behind the other locker.


“Just try to hold it in there,” Chaz replied. At that point I slammed my locker shut. When they saw me they both gulped.


“Hey boys,” I said.


“Um Hi Natalie,” they said and they both looked like they had seen a ghost. They’re faces were hilarious.


“Why are you guys so surprised to see me?” I asked.


“Um it’s just that we forgot that your locker was this one.” Justin said quickly.


“Yeah.. sure,” I replied sarcastically. Then the bell rang and I had to go to my next class.


During class Justin passed a note that said: Meet me at my car after school. I looked back at him and nodded.


The end of the day came by quick and I went to Justin’s car just like he told me. I saw him standing there waiting for me.


“Hey Justin,” I said.


“Hey Natie,” he replied.


“Umm do you wanna go for a quick drive?” he asked


“Um yeah sure.” We climbed in the car and Justin drove off.


We were in silence for a few minutes then I turned on the radio. Call Me Maybe started playing and I started humming the tune but then I ended up singing eventhough my voice was really bad.


Justin started laughing and I smacked him on the arm.


“C’mon you sing with me,” I said. He shook his head. “Aww c’mon Justin.” I kept nudging him on the arm.


“Fine,” he finally said. I started singing and he joined in after. After the song ended we burst out laughing. After our laughing quieted down Justin turned to face me.






“Umm there’s a reason I told you to come with me..” he trailed off.




“Umm well I just wanted to tell you that I –“


*Justin’s POV*


I was cut off by Natalie’s phone ringing. “One sec I have to take this,” she said as she looked at the caller ID.


“Hey babe.. yeah I’m fine how about you?...yeah I’m with Justin… no, no he was just taking me out for a drive..  Bryan you don’t have to get mad everytime I’m out with Justin…” she rolled her eyes when she said that. “Okay babe.. Yeah sure… I’ll be ready by 8.. okay bye,” she finished.


“Umm Justin can you drive me home? Bryan wants to take me out tonight,” she said, smiling big.


I felt my heart drop into a never ending pit. I was just gonna tell Natalie I liked her. It’s obvious she’s crazy about Bryan though. 


“Yeah sure” I replied. I drove off to her house. She gave me a hug and rushed out. I went back home. I guess the others were right. I shouldn’t tell Natalie anything now.






Finally it’s Friday. I went to school and met up with Ryan and Chaz. I told them what happened and each of them patted me on the back with an “I’m Sorry”.


Later that day I met up with Carly, Ashley, Chaz and Ryan. Chaz had told Ashley and Carly about what happened and they each gave me a hug.


 “Ughh. Why can’t she just see how much she means to me?”


“Justin calm down she’ll come around.” Carly said. “


Well you know what Carls? You said that two weeks ago and nothing has happened so far.” I snapped at her.


 “Yo dude, calm down and don’t talk to my girl like that,” Ryan hissed.


“I’m sorry Carly I just-”


“It’s okay Justin I know you’re frustrated but you just have to wait.” She stated sympathetically.


“I can’t freakin wait. I have to tell her. She needs to know that I like her,” I replied.


“Justin, you saw what happened yesterday.” Ashley stated.


“I know Ash. But when I’m with her it’s like nothing can touch me and I don’t have a care in the world. I have never seen anyone more beautiful than she is and no one has ever made me feel the way I do when I’m with her. I’m falling for her hard and there’s nothing I can do about it,” I replied, meaning every word I said.


“Just wait Justin,” Chaz said.


“I know I can’t tell Natalie anything-” I was interrupted by a small voice.


“Well thanks for trusting me Justin and thanks for making me believe that you actually cared about me,” I turned around and I saw Natalie standing there, hurt evident in her eyes.


“Natalie I-”


“Just save it Justin. It doesn’t matter anyway since I’m not worthy to know whatever you’re talking about.” And with that she walked off, leaving all of us in shock and not knowing what to do.


*Natalie’s POV*

I was walking around the halls of the school when I spotted a group of kids sitting together in the hallway. As I got closer I realized it was the others. I heard them talking about whatever they were talking about the other day. I know that I shouldn’t be doing this but if it was the only way I was gonna find out then so be it.


“I can’t freakin wait. I have to tell her. She needs to know that I like her,” I heard Justin say. Who was ‘her’ exactly? And why didn’t Justin tell me he liked a girl? Was he lying when he said he trusted me? I shook off my thoughts and focused on the conversation.


“Justin, you saw what happened yesterday.” Ashley stated. Yesterday? I was with him almost all day yesterday and nothing big happened. I was really confused.


“I know Ash. But when I’m with her it’s like nothing can touch me and I don’t have a care in the world. I have never seen anyone more beautiful than she is and no one has ever made me feel the way I do when I’m with her. I’m falling for her hard and there’s nothing I can do about it,” he replied. Wow. I never thought Justin would say that about anyone. I didn’t even know that Justin knew any other girls here other than us.

“Just wait Justin,” Chaz said.


“I know I can’t tell Natalie anything-” As soon as Justin said that I felt like a thousand knives had stabbed me in the heart. Was everything just a big lie to him? Did I look like some kind of game he could play and then just leave? Well if he did, he thought wrong.


“Well thanks for trusting me Justin and thanks for making me believe that you actually cared about me,” He turned around me standing there.

“Natalie I-”


“Just save it Justin. It doesn’t matter anyway since I’m not worthy to know whatever you’re talking about.” And with that I walked away.


I began walking fast as I felt tears run down my face. I couldn’t believe that Justin would say that.  Or that he’d lie to me like that. I was confused, jealous (yes I admit I was jealous of the girl Justin said all those things about) and most of all I was hurt.
