4. Chapter 3

*Natalie's POV*

"WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?!" the girls asked in unison.  

"It was.. nothing" I said, hesitating at first. I knew Carly and Ashley would take it too dramatically.

Carly started off "NOTHING?!  You two were so close you were about to kiss and you call it NOTHING?!"

"I thought you didn't have feelings for him." Ashley added.

"I don't. I really don't guys." Is it too hard to believe me just for once? I started explaining leaving out a few things cause I knew they'd go all detective on me. "When you two went to get the shoes I was looking at the shelves and he saw me so he came to say hi. that's all, he didn't try to kiss me he just asked for my number not for anything too serious" I said. Hoping they wouldn't see through my half-lie.

"Did you give it to him?" Carly asked.

 I hesitated for a moment. "Ofcourse not! I barely even know this guy and you think I'd give him my number that easily?" I lied again. I just didn't want them to be up in my ass so much. I knew if I'd tell them I wouldn't hear the end of it.  

"Okay. Whatever, but we're keeping an eye out for you," they both said. Ugh why can't they just back off? I really hate it when they jumped to conclusions. What if Justin was a nice guy? What if he just wanted to be friends? Nothing more, nothing less. What the hell am I thinking? Since when do guys want to be "just friends"? I know I didn't know him, but was giving him my number really THAT bad? I mean what's he gonna do with it? I hated my anxiety. I need to stop overthinking everything. He's just a guy. I pushed my thoughts out of my head and focused on my shopping.

After we left the store we were hungry so we took a quick snack at Starbucks. While we were eating we started talking about life and stuff, people in school. Ashley and Carly started asking questions about guys and, ofcourse, they had to bring Justin up.  

"So if you had to choose between two guys. Who would you choose Justin or John?" Ashley said. (John is like the biggest jerk I've ever meet in my life).  If i had chosen John they would automatically think I had a thing for him eventhough they knew I hated him with all my guts. But if I chose justin they would think that they were right about me having a crush on Justin which is NOT true. Right? Wait, why am I having second thoughts about Justin? I DON'T like him.

I stuck with the safe answer... "none." I said frankly. "Well I'd never choose John cause he's the biggest jerk this world can have and I still don't know Justin that well. So I choose neither." That finally shut them up about Justin.

We did some more shopping, then it was late so we headed out. Since all three of us lived on different blocks we had to go our own ways.

"Bye guys see u tomorrow, thanks for today. It was loads of fun." I said giving them both hugs. "Bye" they both said.

Now Annie and Carly had disappeared. On the way home I couldn't stop thinking about all the things that happened today. From when Justin first entered the classroom until he caught me at RackRoom Shoes. For some reason I couldn't help but think him catching me wasn't accidental, like he planned to catch me. What am I saying? There was no way he knew I was gonna fall but it was strange that he caught me so fast. For him to see me fall he'd have to have been watching me. But that wasn't possible. Was it? My thoughts were interrupted when a ball hit my head. I fell to the ground . 

"Ouuucchh" I screamed. Just then a guy came running to me.

"Im so sorry! Are you okay?"he asked.

"Yeah im fine" I said while trying to get up. He held out his hand to help and I gladly took it. "thanks" I tried not to show how much my head was hurting.

"Are you sure your'e okay? You look kinda dizzy." He stated.

"No no. I'm fine" I replied. 

"If you say so. Can I atleast walk you home?" He asked. This guy was really nice. And for the first time I noticed his green-blue eyes and his brown hair that looked perfect. But should I trust him to walk me home? It wasn't a bad thing so I agreed.

"Yeah sure if you want to."

"I'd want to do anything as long as it was with you," he said adding a wink at the end. He was beyond cute. His eyes were adorable but for some reason, I've always liked hazel eyes. Kinda like Justin's. They were so hypnotizing. Stop thinking about Justin! I told myslef. You have this sweet guy walking you home and all you do is think about justin. Snap out of it.

"So can I ask why I pretty girl like you is walking back to her house alone? I'm sure someone as beautiful as you has a boyfriend." he said breaking the silence along with my thoughts.

"Actually I don't..." I said trailing off.

"That's a shame. I guess guys don't see how amazing you are. It's their loss." he was really nice. But for some reason my thoughts always led to Justin.

We were at my front door now. "Umm.." I hesitated before I spoke. "Thanks for walking me home you're really sweet."

"Anything for you, beautiful." My cheeks started turning red.

"Can I have your number?" he asked politely. 

"Sure," I said without hesitation. How come I wasn't as hesitant as I was with Justin? Did I have feelings for this guy? No way. I just met him 5 minutes ago. But he made me feel like a princess. He gave me a kiss on the cheek. I looked like a freakin tomato right now.

He then started heading off but stopped, turned his head, and said, "I didn't quite get your name."

"It's Natalie" i replied.

"I'm Bryan. Nice meeting you Natalie, I'm sure I'll see you around"

"I'm sure you will Bryan." And with that i opened the door with my key and went inside. "Hey mom! Im going to sleep goodnight!"

"Goodnight Nat!" she shouted back. 

I took a quick shower and laid back on my bed and started thinking. The memories of today flooding back into my head. I heard a little *ding* coming from my phone. It was a text from a number I'd never seen before. 
-hey babe. Miss me?xx

I instantly knew who it was. His ego was easily recognizable.

Me: -don't call me babe. And no Justin I didn't.

I saved his number. 

Justin: -aww you dont have to hide it babe. 

Me: -i said don't call me that -.- besides im going to sleep now so goodnight. 
I heard another *ding* coming from my phone but this time it wasn't him. 

-hey Nat! It's Bryan. Just wanted to make sure you were alright. 

Butterflies started forming in my stomach. The way he was checking on me was adorable.
Me: -im fine thanks <3 but I have to go to bed now :( 

I locked my phone and stared at the ceiling for a while. I heard two *dings* coming from my phone. I read the messages 'goodnight babe' and 'good night beautiful' then my eyes slowly drifted to school.
