7. Chapter 6

(A/N) okay so i noticed that on the movellas app bold and italics dont show so i'll underline the things that need to be emphasized and the thoughts. Oh and i forgot to add this in the last chapter. Natalie was wearing this on the date:

*Natalie's POV*

This is such a hard decision. Justin really screwed up but he came all the way over here just to make up for it and say sorry, which means he really cares and he's really sweet. But I promised Bryan I'd go on the date with him and he's just so cute and sweet and ughhh.

I know I have to choose one of them, so here it goes.. "Justin.... Umm... I kinda promised Bryan I'd go on this date with him so I really need to go, make yourself comfortable. I'm so sorry." I hated letting people down, especially when they were doing something nice for me. But I had to go with Bryan. I went and gave Justin a kiss on the cheek so he wouldn't feel bad, then I opened the door and took Bryan out with me. Justin looked somewhat confused and pissed at the same time.

*Justin's POV*

She kissed me. On the cheek. I did NOT see that coming... her lips were so warm and soft it's like they fit on my cheek.

But just because she kissed me doesn't mean I'm not mad. I was furious. Both Bryan and Natalie could see it. I mean she chose THAT guy over me. She literally left me alone in her house after I came to apologize and make things right.

Every second I thought of it, the more I got mad. It just didn't seem right for him to be taking her out.
After they left I ran out and slammed the door behind me. I got in my car and drove around for a while. i NEED to get her off my mind, i dont even like her. 
I've been driving for 10 minutes now and all I did was get angrier. I wasn't angry at just Bryan, I was angry at myself too for screwing up. She was the only thing close to a friend I had. I can't lose her.

I got to the house and it was muddy outide so I took my shoes off at the door. I was headed to the living room until I smelt the amazing scent of tacos, one of my favorite things to eat, besides spaghetti of course.

I walked into the kitchen and found my beautiful mother sitting on the counter eating tacos all by herself. "Hey mom," I said kissing her check.

"Hey baby," she said. I seriously loved her more than anything in this entire world. She's always there for me when I need her and she's so caring. She always helped me when I was down. She was like my bestfriend. I can't describe how amazing this woman was.

"Mom where'd you get that from?" I said pointing at the tacos.

"Well I met a friend a few days ago and she invited me for lunch and there were left overs. She knew I had a son and insisted on giving me some to take home for you. Oh and these are yours. I heated them already so just dig in hun." She said, pointing to the plate next to hers.

I picked up the plate and sat next to her for a few minutes. There was absolute silence around us, but my mind was still thinking about Natalie and Bryan.

*Patties' POV*

I heard the front door open and I immediately knew it was Justin since it was a little late and we usually didn't have guests. He walked in and greeted me and sat next to me to eat. 

We sat in silence for a couple of minutes and I knew right away something was up. I knew Justin really well and he would always come home and start chatting away about his day, except when he was upset. "Baby, what's wrong?" I said, concerned.

"um n-nothing" he said slowly, stammering a little. Now I was positive something was wrong.

"Justin, I'm your mother for heaven's sake. I think by now you should know that I'll always know if there's something wrong. And right now it's obvious that something is wrong so tell me. You know I only want the best for you." I urged, knowing that what I just said would make him spill.

He started talking "okay mom.. so.. um theres this g-girl at school. And we kinda had an argument this morning and it was all my fault. Then in class the teacher decided to put us together for a project. So, after school I went to her house to work on the project, apologize and make it up to her but I found her dressed up for a date. This kid comes in and tells her to go with him so -of course- she goes with him, obviously choosing him over me, and leaves me there looking like a complete idiot. And it's all my fault and I don't know what to do cause she's the closest thing I have to a friend." He put his head in his hands out of frustration and let out a long sigh.

After a while he looked out and stared into nothing. After I saw how upset he was and what he said, I knew he had feelings for this girl he was talking about. He seemed to care about her so much and he seemed somewhat jealous even if he doesn't want to admit it. 

"Justin do you like her?" I asked, breaking the silence, even though I knew he'd say he didn't.

"Eww no. Yeah she's nice, but I just met her." Had a feeling he'd say that. I cocked my eyebrows knowing that he did but he just didn't wanna admit it.

He understood immediately that I was not convinced. "Mooomm. What?" he said.

"Baby all you said about her right now was proof that you care about her and it's obvious you like her. It's just the way you said it was how I knew. I'm your mother. I raised you. I think I'm the most person that knows you."

"Whatever mom. I'm going upstairs." He replied. He definitely had feelings for her, but he was just trying to push them away.

*Natalie's POV*

I took Bryan out the door and we started making our way to the car. He was annoyed and angry. As we got to the car he went straight to his side not even bothering to open the door for me. Gentleman much?

Bryan immediately started the engine. He was really mad. Just as we drove off he started speaking up, "What was up with that kid? First with the car in the morning, and now this? He is such a-" I cut him off before he continued. I knew exactly what he was going to say.

"Bryan can you please not. That 'kid' is my friend so stop talking crap about him." I said, defending Justin.

"What's his name anyway? And why was he at your house? Didn't he know you had a date?" This reminded me of the car ride with Justin. All the questions he had about Bryan. And Bryan was doing the same now, but I knew Bryan was only doing it cause he didn't want to see me with another guy. He obviously liked me.

But if Bryan did it cause he liked me doesn't that mean Justin did it for the same reason? Probably not. Like I said, he was just a friend. "His name is Justin and we kind of had an argument in the morning so he came to work on the project as a way to make it up for me." I answered in a calm voice hoping Bryan would calm down.

"And if he was your friend why'd you go kiss him on the cheek?" I almost forgot about that. That kiss. I only did it cause i felt bad for him but it felt like my lips fit there. Like his cheeks were made just for me. They were so soft. I never knew a boy could have such soft cheeks. I felt Bryan's eyes on me. Then I realized that he was waiting for me to respond. "I just.. Umm.. Felt bad for him. He was being very sweet and I just left him there."

"It's his fault he came at such a wrong time," Bryan mumbled under his breath, but I could hear it.

"Can we just stop asking questions. Lets just enjoy our date. I chose you after all didn't I?" As soon as I said those words, I regretted them. I had a weird feeling for some reason. They just didn't feel right, at least not to Bryan. I felt like I had betrayed Justin for some reason. Like I had just stabbed him in the back. Like the words didn't fit.

"Natalie are you coming?" I was too busy in my thoughts that I hadn't noticed we arrived.

Bryan was standing at my door holding it open for me to come out. I took my clutch and got out as he closed the door behind me.

There was a huge waiting line at the door and everybody was dressed up. This place seemed really fancy. "If we're gonna stand in a line like that we can just go somewhere else I don't mind." I suggested.

"Don't worry beautiful, just trust me." Every time he said beautiful I felt butterflies erupt in my stomach.

We made our way to the counter near the door not even stepping into the line. Bryan was having a conversation with the guy at the counter.

In 2 minutes the guy spoke, "Follow me madam, monsieur." Wow. That was quick. Bryan obviously knew the guy or the owners or something.

As I walked in the people in line started giving us glares but I didn't care.

When we got in I was in absolute awe. The place was gorgeous. And really crowded too. How could Bryan afford to take me out to a place like this? 

We got to the table and we sat down across from each other. I decided to speak up "Wow Bryan this place is just...amazing."

"Anything for you. I'd do anything you know that right?" He said, looking deeply into my eyes. My hand was on top of the table so he moved his hand to mine and held it. His eyes were amazing but as soon as I thought about them, Justin's hazel eyes came into mind. Yes, Bryans blue ones were absolutely astounding, but Justin's hazel eyes were just hypnotizing and you could make out about 1000 things just by looking into them. Why are you thinking about Justin? You're supposed to be on this date with Bryan. I said to myself.

The waiter then came and we ordered our things. Bryan got his favorite dish; hamburgers and fries. And I got my favorite; spaghetti and meatballs. I wonder what Justin likes. Here I go again with Justin. Think about Bryan Natie.

We talked for 30 minutes, and I found out a bit about Bryan. He's 19 and he's in college, his favorite color is green, he has a sister named Chloe and his parents live in London with his sister.

After we talked, the food came and I started digging into my spaghetti. After a while Bryan started laughing "What's so funny?" I said with a confused look.

"Haha y-your'e f-face is full of s-spaghetti sauce." he could barely say the sentence. I crossed my arms and gave him a glare. "Okay I'm sorry Natie, here let me get it for you," he picked up his napkin and wiped my nose and mouth. I stuck my tongue out at him and he just chuckled. I started smiling like an idiot.

I was really having fun and I was really glad I came with him on this date.

Bryan and Justin seemed like completely different people. If justin would've took me out on a date where we he take me? I doubt he was gonna take me to somewhere fancy and crowded cause he seemed really down to earth. But that didn't mean he wouldn't do something amazing. Again about Justin. 

We got in the car and drove back to my place. Bryan got out and came around to my side to open my door. I stepped out and he closed the door behind me. He took my hand as we started walking towards the front steps of my house.

Before I got to the door bryan turned me around so I was facing him. "Umm I really had fun tonight Natalie." he was so cute.

"Me too Bryan. Maybe we could do it again sometime." I said, biting my lip as I looked down and my hair curtained my face.

Just then Bryan took my chin between his index and thumb, just like Justin did a while a go. Stop thinking about Justin, Natie. He lifted my face up and looked into my eyes, then to my lips, then to my eyes again. Was he thinking if kissing me? He started to lean in and I did too.

What am I doing? I can't kiss him. It's just our first date. But then again, I really want to and he's just so cute and sweet and ugh. But I can't. Not now. Not until I was sure I liked him.

He started to lean in more. "Bryan," I said to break the kiss. He looked at me with hurt in his eyes.

"I'm sorry Natalie I just thought that maybe-"

"Bryan it's not what you think. I like you. A lot. But it's just too soon. I'm not ready yet. I'm sorry if you're sad or hurt, but I promise it's just me." I kissed him on the cheek and headed inside.

"Bye Natie," I turned around for a second.

"Bye Bryan. I liked him. I really did. But, I don't know. Something just didn't seem right. We'll just have to wait and see where this takes us.
