10. Chapter 9

*Justin's POV*

As soon as I saw natalie run up to him happily and hug him a sudden anger rose up in me. I clenched my fists and looked at them while they were laughing and giggling. "Justin calm down," I heard Ryan whisper to me but I ignored it.

My girl isnt supposed to- wait did I just say 'my girl'? Yes you did justin and you're upset cause you can't call her that cause shes not yours. 

I walked away, occasionally looking back at them. After my anger came sorrow. It was then, while I was watching Natalie and Bryan together for the first time, that I realized I was falling for her, hard.

My jealousy was rising inside of me. I walked around until I saw Ryan and Carly. They were sitting at a tree and carly was on his lap with her head on his chest while he was playing with her hair. The sight of them made me feel calmer, but angrier at the same time. Ryan looked like he was really into Carly and that they were really happy. The moment I saw them like that I promised myself that I'd get Natalie and do the same thing with her.

I walked to Ryan and Carly. "Woah, Justin, what happened? You look really angry." Ryan said. Just then I heard footsteps coming. I looked back and saw Chaz. 

"You alright man? You seemed really pissed." Ofcourse I was pissed. 

"Okay guys. I finally admit it. I like Natalie okay?" They all looked at each other smiling ."Why are you smiling?" I spat. 

"First of all, you finally admit it, and, second, you're jealous of Bryan arent you?" Ryan stated. I was jealous but I wasn't gonna let them know that. 

"Jealous of Bryan? Why would I be jealous of him?" 

"Cause Natalie and him are kind of a thing." Ryan said. 

"Oh so cause they've gone on one date it means they're a 'thing'" I snapped. 

"Look at how you're talking Justin." 

"If I admit I'm jealous will you shut up?" I asked. They all nodded. "Okay fine I'm jealous. Happy?" They all grinned yet again. 

"Before you go over there you have to relax okay?" Chaz exclaimed I nodded. 

"Just so you know, I really want her to be with you, not with Bryan," Carly said, winking. 

"Thanks Carly that means a lot." I said, smiling at her. "So umm are you guys a thing or?" I asked looking at Carly and Ryan. Ryan looked at Carly before pecking her on the lips, then turned his attention towards me. 

"Yeah we're kinda dating now." 

"That's great bro," I said, clapping hands with him. 

"So Justin, you good?" Chaz asked. 

"Yeah I think so." 

"Let's head back then," Carly said. 

We walked back and saw natalie holding Bryan's hand. She introduced us to him, but I already knew him though. 

"Carly, Ryan, Chaz, this is Bryan. And Justin, you already know him." Natalie said. 

"Hey guys," Bryan said. I clenched my teeth and my fists. I really hated him. Maybe if I had listened to myself before and asked Natalie out before him I would have her right now. 

"Don't be an ass to him, justin, say hi," Chaz whispered. 

"Hey bryan, I'm sorry we got to know each other in a wrong way," I greeted him.

"It's okay. Natalie explained everything in the car," he said as he smiled at Natalie, she kissed his cheek. I noticed she hadn't taken off my hoodie and that bought a smile to my face. I decided to go talk to Chaz and Ryan alone about what I was thinking and what I should do. 

"So guys I think we should leave Natalie alone with Bryan for a while, we can go for walk," I said giving Ryan, Chaz and Carly a quick glance. 

"Yeah umm sure," Chaz said, quickly getting the message. 

"See ya later guys. Have fun.. But not too much fun" Ryan said, winking. Perv. 

"Shut up." Natie playfully smacked Ryan's arm. 

We walked off and as soon as we were far enough I spoke up, "Did you see that guy? I mean what does he have on me? Ughh." I started muttering some curses under my breath as I got more and more frustrated. 

"Dude chill were all on your side here," Chaz said, patting my shoulder. "

What the hell am I supposed to do?" 

"I don't knwo man, but one I know you shouldn't do is get in between of their relationship. She'll just hate you if you did that," Ryan explained. 

"Just show her you care Justin. Fight for her. Be there for her. I promise you she'll fall easier than you think. I even think that she's already falling but she's just pushing away the feeling." Carly explained. My eyes lit up. A sudden ray of hope shone inside of me. Could she really fall for me? I dont think so. She doesn't see me any more than a friend. The hope was gone the second it came.

I sat down with my knees up and put my elbows on my knees bringing my hand up to pull my hair. They all sat around with me, Ryan pulling Carly onto his lap as he kissed her. You have to make a move. I thought to myself. I can't. you heard Ryan, I shouldn't get in between Natie and Bryan. Justin you didn't listen to me the last time and look at you now. The last thing I need is to lose Natie herself , I won't make a move now shut up. 

"Justin?" Chaz said waving a hand over my face. I noticed they were all standing up. 

"Huh?" I said confused. 

"I said we better get going. Natalie's gonna get worried about you." 

We walked back to where we were sitting and saw Natie sitting next to Bryan as she brought her head back and laughed, the same way she did earlier today at school. But there was only one difference, he was the one that was making her happy, not me. 

As soon as Bryan saw us he spoke up. "So Natalie umm I have to go cause I promised my friends I'd hang with them tonight. See ya later okay?" He said as he was getting up. Natalie got up too and gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Only one thought was on my mind: that should be me. 

He walked off and went to his car, got in and drove off. I let out a sigh of relief as he drove away and my anger started going down. I looked over at Natalie who was smiling really big. "Why so happy?" I asked. 

"It's just Bryan.. He makes me really happy." As soon as she said those words, I felt my heart sink, I looked down and I could feel Chaz, Ryan and Carly look at me. I looked up again. 

"Are you guys okay?" Natalie asked. 

"It's nothing" I lied. 

"If all three of you are looking at each other like that it's obviously something," she said getting irritated and walking off. 

"Natalie wait." I said as I ran after her. I heard Chaz tell Ry and Carly not to come after us. 

"You know im faster than you Natalie" I said as I ran. 

"Try me, Bieber," she said and took off laughing. I started running faster as we got deeper into the park. It was slowly turning into a forest. I dodged the trees as I was trying to keep up with Natie. Damn, this girl was fast. 

I caught up to her and picked her up from her waist and spun her around, her laughing insanely. I tripped on a rock and fell down on my back with her on top of me. We laughed for a bit then I noticed how close she was to me. She was lying on top of my stomach, her hands on my chest and her face only a few inches away. 

Kiss her, you know you want to. I can't do that. I can't get in between her and Bryan. Just do it. No I wont. Now her face was closer and my urge to kiss her grew but I never brought myself to do it. I couldn't do this to her or Bryan, as much as I despised him. 

I rolled us around so that I was the one on top. I had my hands on the ground holding me up near her waist. "Got ya," I said as she smiled. I fell down next to her as my heavy breathing died down. 

I got on top of her like before again and started tickling her. "That's for running away from me," I said. 

"J-justin s-s-stop," she said as she laughed. I got up and came closer so I could carry her as she crawled back with her elbows. I got to her, scooped her up and put her on my shoulder. "Justin put me down." She said, crossing her arms on my back. "Nope" I said popping the 'p'. She kept trying to kick and wiggle until I finally set her down. 

"Thank you," she said sarcastically. 

"Hop on my back its a long way." I crouched down like before as she hopped on, just like earlier today. 

"Ready?" I asked smirking. 

"Justin wai-" I ran off. She started laughing then quieted down as she rested her head on my shoulder. I started walking instead of running until I felt something wet on my t-shirt. I looked at my shoulder and saw that Natalie was sleeping for the second time today. I put her down then carried her bridal style to where Chaz, Carly and Ryan were. As I was walking I kissed her forehead very lightly. 

I got nearer to where we were sitting and as soon as the others were in sight I saw them smiling at me. I put her down on the grass and sat with my back against the tree. I felt her move slightly then she lifted her back slightly and put her head on my chest. I put my arm around her body as she cuddled further into my chest, if it were possible. I could sit here like this forever. 

I looked up and saw the rest of them grinning from ear to ear. "You two look so cute together," Carly said. 

"Yeah, well I don't think "us" is gonna happen anytime soon." 

"Don't give up so easily Justin. You have to fight for her," Ryan said. "You can't let him win."

"Justin I know Natalie. I've known her for over 13 years now. And I know when she likes someone. When she told me about all that happened, I knew she liked you, not Bryan. You just have to show her. You have to let her admit it. Cause I'm sure theres a voice inside of her that's fighting for you but she's just pushing it away. You have to give her a reason to fall for you," Carly said. She was a really good friend. 

"Thanks Carls," I said. 

"I want to see my girl with a guy that I can trust and know will treat her right and not break her heart. And I think that's you Justin" she said. 

"That means a lot carly," I replied. 

"So what are you gonna do?" Chaz asked. 

"Exactly what carly said. I have to fight for her. I have to show her how much she means to me," Just then I heard Natalie stir. She opened her eyes and looked up at me. 

"Justin?" 

"Im right here beautiful," I replied. 

"I thought we were in the woods," she said looking around. 

"You fell asleep so I carried you hear. You can go back to sleep if you want, I don't mind," I said. 

"No its okay. Thanks Justin," she said as she kissed my cheek and layed back on my chest, not sleeping this time. I looked up and saw them smiling. I smiled down at her and kissed her hair. 

 

*Natalie's POV*

"So what are you gonna do?" I heard Chaz asking . 

"Exactly what Carly said. I have to fight for her. I have to show her how much she means to me." That was definitely Justin. He was definitely talking about a girl. I'm gonna ask Carly who he was talking about later. Are you jealous Natalie? Jealous of who? Of that girl justins talking about. She's obviously special to him. I'm not jealous okay? Just curious. Why curious? It shouldn't matter to you if you're not jealous. He's my friend so, yes, it does matter. Now shut up. 

I opened my eyes and looked up. "Justin?" I said. 

"I'm right here beautiful," he said. I got butterflies in my stomach when he called me that. He stroked my hair a bit. I noticed my head was on his chest and I was laying down next to him. Last thing I remembered was being on his back. 

"I thought we were in the woods," I said. I looked around and saw Chaz, Ryan and Carly smiling. I scrunched my nose. 

"You fell asleep so I carried you here. You can go back to sleep if you want I don't mind," he said. He was so sweet. 

"No it's okay. Thanks Justin," I said as I kissed his soft cheek. I layed back on his chest cause it was really comfortable and warm. I was still wearing his hoodie too. I felt like I belonged there. I looked up at Justin and he was looking at the others, smiling at each other. Weird... There was something up but I didn't bother asking. I looked back down. I felt justin kiss my head.

"I think its getting late, shouldn't we be heading home?" I asked. They all looked at me. 

"Um yeah if you want," Carly said. 

"Okay then lets go." I said getting up. They all got up too. 

"Umm I think I'll walk Carly home." Ryan said as he took Carly's hand and pecked her on her cheek. 

"Bye guys," Carly said, giving us all hugs. As she walked off she looked at me and smiled. I winked at her. 

"My house is just a block away from here so I think I'll walk." Chaz said, giving me and Justin both a hug as he walked off. 

"I guess it's just us," I said looking down and biting my lip. Justin came closer until he was sanding right infront of me. 

"How many times do I have to tell you not to hide that beautiful face of yours?" Justin asked lifting my chin up. I looked into his caramel orbs. 

"Thanks justin." I said giving him a hug. He wrapped his arms around me and we stayed like that for a couple of seconds. He nuzzled his head into the crook of my neck. He was so cute.

"For what?" He asked. 

"For everything." I replied still not letting go. I really liked how we were right now. His breath on my neck gave me some chills. "For still being here even though I judged you so quick. For caring about me. For giving me your hoodie. For holding me. For carrying me when I fell asleep.." 

"Anything for you Natalie. I really hope you know how much I'm grateful I met you. You took me in as a friend." He said, squeezing me then letting go. "C'mon I'll drive you home," he said. I took his hand as we walked to the car. 

He got in and drove away. A comfortable silence came over us while I plunged into my thoughts. You forgot to thank him for making you fall for him. I didn't fall for him and that makes no sense. Face it natalie. Just face the truth. I already have. I like Bryan. You and I both know that isnt the truth. Well to me, it is. That explains kissing justin, hugging justin, cuddling with justin, sleeping in justins arms.. We're friends that's okay. Yeah. friends that act like a couple. You never do those things with Bryan eventhough you supposedly like HIM. I don't have to do those things to prove that I like someone That's your excuse? You don't have to prove anything? Let me remind you again, Natalie. I'm not a person I'm YOU. You're proving it to yourself

At that moment the car stopped. I looked outside the window and saw my house. Justin got up and opened my door for me. He walked me up to the door. "Thanks for today, Justin. I had a lot of fun." 

"Yeah it was fun." He said. He started fidgeting. I hugged him. 

"Calm down Justin" I whispered. His once tense body relaxed as I said that. He put his arms around me and nuzzled his head in my neck like before, his breath still giving me chills. I heard him mumbling something but I couldn't quite get what it was. He let go. 

"Bye Natalie," he said. 

"Bye Justin" I smiled. He put his soft plump lips on my cheek then turned around. I opened the door and put my hand on my cheek where he left the kiss. Why are you doing this to me Justin?

 

*Justin's POV* 

When Natalie hugged me and told me to calm down, I relaxed. "You'll be mine one day. I promise," I mumbled not loud enough for her to hear. We said our goodbyes then I kissed her cheek softly. This was different from the morning cause it was real. I walked off and climbed into my car. I traced my hand over my lip. Why are you doing this to me Natalie?
