Is it bad that I keep thinking about Josh?


October 21-

So I went shopping with Danielle today, here's the only importantish thing that happened:

Danielle nudged me in the shoulder with her elbow. 

Danielle: "I saw you and Josh kiss on Thursday!"

Me: "You what?!"

Danielle laughed louder than imaginable,  probably because of how shocked I looked. 

Danielle: "Yep!"

Me: "How!?"

Danielle: "Well I came in to get Lou a beer and I saw you give him a peck on the lips."

Me: "Oh thank god."

Danielle: "What?"

Me: "I thought you saw something else. But you didn't... So it's okay... Ish."

Danielle: "Tell me!"

Me: "No."

Danielle: "Then I guess I'll just text Josh..."

Me: "Have at it."
-
-
-
Danielle: "Ha, you're gonna kill me!"

Me: "Why?"

Danielle: "I texted Josh saying, 'You do know I saw you and Scarlett kiss on Thursday, right?' And he responded with, "I do now." So I said, "So you have an eye out for her?" And he said "Wait... Are you shopping with her right now?"

Me: "Danielle!"

Danielle: "Do you want to hear the rest?"

Me: "I guess."

Danielle: "I said, "yeah, I told her I saw her give you a peck on this lips and she thought I saw something else and now she won't tell me what." And he said "Oh, I know what." And he added a winky face, so I asked what it was and all he said was "Something I hope I get to do again."

Danielle looked over and me and started laughing. 

Danielle: "You're blushing! Aw! I'm going to tell him!"

Me: "You're such a child."

Danielle just stared at me then continued. After a few seconds she grabbed my shoulders and started jumping and screeching. 

Danielle: "I said, "I read that to her and she blushed." And added a smily face, and he said, "Then how about you tell her I'd like to take her out on a date tomorrow night?'"

I froze as I shuffled through the sales rack at Forever 21. Danielle laughed again.

Danielle: "I guess that means yes!"

So I have a date with Josh tomorrow... I can't help but smile right now. He just texted me saying, "Hey love, how about I pick you up at Zayn's tomarrow at five? He said he had something to give you and that he was watching Carly and Cree anyway." 

So I'll be meeting Josh at Zayn's. now I just want to know what Zayn has for me... Josh says he doesn't know. Ugh. 


October 23-

I can't even imagine words to describe yesterday, here's how it went:

I walked down the road and up to Zayn's driveway with Carly and Cree by my side. I was wearing dark, navy, skinny jeans, a brown belt, a cream colored tank-top, a brown sweater and brown boots. I walked into Zayn's house and him and Josh were having a beer in the kitchen. Carly and Cree went outside and started running around the yard.  

Josh: "Hey."

Zayn: "I've got a surprise for you."

Me: "Hey guys, one sec Zayn I just have to use the toilet." 

I went upstairs and used the toilet, I washed my hands, and just as I was drying my hands I heard something and began ease-dropping. 

Zayn: "I knew you had a thing for her, I tried to stop her from Phillip but it didn't work, but that took care of itself anyway."

Josh: "Yeah, I have for a while... I don't know it just feels so right but so wrong."

Zayn: "What do you mean?"

Josh: "I want nothing more then to hold her close and kiss her, but it feels so wrong knowing she used to be Harry's... And I know she still loves him..."

Zayn: "She'll always love him, we all will, Josh. And she's almost positive he's not coming back so I'd go for it... If it feels right then it is."

Josh: "I know, that's what I'm going to do. I'm just trying my hardest to never hurt her like Harry did, even though he didn't mean to."

I decided I've heard enough, I tried my hardest to wipe the huge smile off my face and I walked back downstairs. I already talked to the girls about Josh and thankfully they're actually very happy. I have to agree with Josh though, it does feel partially wrong since he was such a close friend of Harry's. But I also agree with Zayn, it feels right so go for it. I entered the kitchen. 

Zayn: "Ready for your surprise now?" 

Me: "Yes!" 

Zayn picked up a bag off the ground and handed it to me. I carefully examined it before opening it. 

Me: "Do either of you know what it is?"

The both shook their heads no. I pulled out the white wrapping paper and a clear bottle with paper rolled up inside it stared back at me. I looked up to Josh and Zayn with wide, curious eyes then pulled out the bottle. I rolled it in my hands for several moments before pulled the cork out of the end and pulling the rolled up sheet of paper out. I unrolled the paper slowly, I noticed that Zayn and Josh were exchanging curious expressions. I read the paper.

Scarlett,
I know how worried you are about me going on this cruise so I'm making 70 bottles just like this one and giving one to everyone else on the ship. I highly doubt the ship will sink, but even if it doesn't this will make me feel better. 
If it sinks and I don't survive, someone will be able to give you a bottle and you'll have proof of what I'm about to say to you. 

I love you, but if I'm not home a month after the ship sank, I'm dead. I won't give up, I'll try until die to get back to you, but I know I won't last more then a month lost in the ocean. It hurts me to know that I won't be there to hold you again, to kiss you again, to see your gorgeous face, to see my children, to joke around with the lads... But there's nothing I can do about it anymore. And god I feel useless for that, I should be able to make you happy and keep you safe 24/7.

If I'm not back in a month... There's no way I'm alive... But if that happens I want you to know I love you, I always will. And if I do die, I can't wait to see you again in heaven. 

There's things I've never told you... There's a gun on the back of the fridge, I kept it there incase someone ever tried to hurt Carly, Cree, or you. Keep it there, you might need it one day. There's a few million dollars in your wedding dress bag up in the closet, I left it there for you incase one day I just never came back...

If the ship did sink, and you are reading this, I'm sorry. I really am, now that I'm on this cruise I'm scared. I regret not listening to you, I'm afraid it will sink, and then I'll never see you and my children again. I miss you... I don't think anyone really knows how much you mean to me... I don't think even I understand. I feel different when I'm with you, a good different... I stay up late at night just to watch you sleep, because honestly, it's a beautiful sight. I love spending time with you, weather it's roasting marshmallows by a fire-pit or swimming with dolphins, you always make it a fun time. Seeing you cry makes me go weak in the knees, it makes me want to break down and cry, it makes me feel like I failed... And I'm glad to say that I haven't had to see you cry in months... You mean the world and more to me. I've honestly had dreams where you died, and all I did was shoot myself in the head. I had NOTHING left to live for... And I knew it too... I love you. 

And if I do die, promise me you'll move on... I want you to be happy. I know there's someone out there who can treat you even better then I ever did... Please try to find that person. Maybe it's one of the lads, maybe it's a friend of mine, I don't know who it is, just promise me you'll try to find them. 

I know this whole idea is cliché, but I don't care. I love you, and I'll do everything I can to stay alive, but I know I won't last long stranded in the ocean. I'll never forget you, promise you won't forget me?

Your Hazzzy xx.

I whispered.

Me: "I promise."

I let tears slowly fall down my face as I noticed the tear stains on the paper. And then I realized... It's been over a month that the ship sank. Harry and I both know he's dead... I knew it all along... But knowing it's true... Josh came over to my side and held me close trying to comfort me. I looked up to Zayn with my puffy eyes. 

Me: "Where did you get this?"

Zayn: "A old friend of mine who was also on the cruise, he survived and said to give it to you."

I leaned over and buried my face into Joshes torso and he kept kissing my forehead attempting to comfort me, he was doing a great job. 

Zayn: "Can I read it?" 

I held the piece of paper in the air and Zayn carefully grabbed it. Josh lifted up my head and looked my in the eyes. His beautiful brown eyes calmed me down and have me hope. He whispered.

Josh: "Shh, Shh, don't cry." 

I pushed my face back into his chest. 

Zayn: "Josh looks at this."

I could hear Zayn was trying not to cry.  I felt Joshes arm stretch up to grab the piece of paper. About a minute or two passed before I heard Joshes soothing voice again. 

Josh: "Shh... It's okay to cry. I'm here for you, I always am."

Me: "He's not coming back, is he Zayn?"

Zayn didn't answer me for the longest time. 

Zayn: "He might."

Josh: "No, he will."

I looked up to Josh, this all just seems so surreal. I want to be with Harry, but I want to be with Josh too. And if Harry came back right now, and I had to choose I don't know what I would do. 

Harry's done so much for me over the years, and that note... But Josh comforts me, more then Harry ever did. Harry never really wanted to listen for too long, he just listened to a certain point then tried to knock the thoughts out of my head. I don't know what I'd do and I don't think I want to have to make that choice. 

I looked back up to Josh and stared into his eyes. 

Me: "Can we go another day?"

Josh: "Of course."

Me: "Zayn, can you keep the kids tonight?"

Zayn: "Sure."

Josh: "You wanna be home alone tonight?"

Me: "Not really... I hate being home alone... I just don't want to cry in front of the girls."

I looked up to Josh again.

Me: "Will you stay with me tonight?"

Josh: "Of course angel"

It wasn't 'till ten when I decided to go to bed. Josh pulled down the covers and I slid in, he slowly pulled up the covers to my chin then bent down softly planting a kiss on my forehead. 

Josh: "Goodnight, angel" 

He got up to leave but I grabbed his arm and stopped him. 

Me: "Don't leave."

He smiled then nodded, he slid into the other side of the bed and held me close letting me cry into his chest once more.

That was last night, and tonight, I miss his presence. But at least we have our date tomorrow. 


Lmfao I thought so and here's the first part 


October 25-

Alright, here's how my date with Josh went: 

Josh told me he was going to pick me up at seven. I already dropped Carly and Cree of at Niall's for the night, all I have to do is finish getting ready. It's seven now so josh should be here soon, I'll never be on time for a date. 

I quickly finished my attempt at a water braid then walked over to my closet pulling out my last minute choice of an outfit. I put on a strapless white shirt with little red dots all over it, a medium length light tan skirt with ruffles, and a long cream colored sweater with sleeves that are just long enough to cover my elbows. It wasn't my best option, but considering Josh won't tell me where we are going, I figure this outfit will work for anywhere. 

I hear a loud 'quack, quack, quack, quack' so I walked over to my phone knowing I got a message. I'm still not sure why I choose 'duck' as Josh's text tone, but oh well. I opened the message:

From Josh:

I'm here, are you ready angel? :)

I smiled as I responded:

To Josh:

Almost, you can come in. :)

I dropped my phone back onto my bed and quickly walked over picking up my pair of tan flats, slipping them on my feet. I heard more quacking so I checked my phone once more. 

From Josh:

I'm eating your cookies. ;)

I chuckled softly before responding. 

To Josh: 

Freshly baked! :)

I dropped my phone back onto my bed and I went back into my bathroom. I spun around looking at myself in the mirror, I looked young, not as if I was trying to dress like a 18 year old, but I looked younger than I was. I'm okay with that. 

I walked out of my bathroom only to find Josh sitting on my bed.

Me: "When did you get there?"

He laughed slightly before responding.

Josh: "Just now."

I laughed too, I then walked over to my jewelry box putting on a necklace and a pair of earrings. 

Me: "So where are we going?"

Josh: "It's a surprise."

Me: "But I'm allergic to surprises."

Josh fake sneezed. 

Josh: "Sorry, I'm allergic to lies."

I laughed, I picked up my purse off my bed. 

Me: "Can't you just tell me?"

Josh: "No."

Me: "Well then."

I pretended to be disgusted then laughed. 

Josh: "Ready?"

Me: "Yes."
-
-
-
-

Josh: "Having fun with your backyard farm?"

He smirked, as if he knew how much I hated it. 

Me: "Well... I'm 90% sure Betsy, the pig, is pregnant."

Josh erupted into laughter. 

Josh: "Are you kidding?!"

Me: "I wish. Oh, and now they want a cat."

Josh: "So get a cat."

Me: "I can't just give in and give them everything."

Josh: "You know you want to."

Me: "Of course I want to, and I probably will. I just shouldn't. I mean, one of them isn't going to be around much longer... I want them to live as happily as possible."

Tears built up in my eyes but I refused to let a single one fall. 

Josh: "Yeah..."

Me: "Yeah, so why can't I know where we're going?"

Josh: "It's a surprise."

I sighed and started silently singing to the music on the radio: Never Say Never by The Fray. 

Josh: "You sing?"

I paused before answering, I forgot all about singing after Harry...

Me: "I use to..."

Josh: "Used to?"

Me: "I just kinda forgot about it."

Josh: "How do you forget about singing?"

Me: "I don't know..."

Josh looked over at me and met my eyes before looking back at the road. 

Josh: "Yes you do."

Me: "Don't pester me."

Josh: "I'm... Sorry."

Me: "No, I'm sorry. It just don't want to talk about it right now."

Josh: "Oh... Well you're a good singer, you could get far with your voice."

Me: "I don't like performing in front of people."

Josh laughed slightly. 

Josh: "Good point."

Me: "Can I please know where we're going?"

Josh: "I don't need to tell you, we're here."

I looked out the window, were at a park. 

Me: "It's so pretty..."

Josh didn't dodge the chance of flirting. 

Josh: "You're so pretty."

I looked over to Josh wish a smile on my face. 

Me: "Thanks."

He opened the door and hopped out of his black jeep. I went to do the same, but the door wouldn't open. I erupted into laughter waiting for him to open my door. He pulled on the handle letting me hop out of the car noticing my laughter. 

Josh: "What?"

I just barely managed to speak as I continued practically dying of laughter. 

Me: "You child locked me."

Josh smiled and grabbed my hand helping me out of the car and leading me towards the grass, I noticed he had a basket in his hand. 

Josh: "I thought it'd be sweet."

I stopped and looked Josh dead center in his chocolate brown eyes. 

Me: "And it is."

I gave him a quick peck on the lips as saw him quickly smile. 

Josh laid out a blanket and we sat down staring at a beautiful lake. Josh looked at me with a wide grin on his face. 

Josh: "Do you like ribs?"

I smiled back at Josh. 

Me: "I love ribs."

I emphasized "love."

Josh: "Good."

Josh pulled out a plastic bin and took off the lid. I smiled as I noticed the amount a ribs that lay among me. 

Me: "Let's make this more interesting."

Josh: "I like interesting."

I chuckled softly. 

{FOR THE RECORD WHILE EDITING MARRISSA INSERTED, "Yeah screw you Josh " RIGHT HERE!}

Me: "I'll eat like a caveman, and you'll eat like a fancy, proper, queen."

Josh smiled and laughed.

Josh: "You're on."

Me: "Oh, I'm not done."

I let a grin unfold across my face as I continued speaking. 

Me: "As we talk I have to use cat puns and you have to use dog puns."

Josh laughed louder then I ever hear him laugh. 

Josh: "Let's do this thing."

I grabbed a rib out of the container and shoved it in my mouth quickly and loudly eating off all of it's meat. I looked over at josh. 

Me: "I'd be lion if I said they weren't amazing."

Josh laughed a picked up a rib holding his pinky out. 

Josh: "Good day Madame. How are Carly and Cree?"

Me: "Great... By the way they asked meow you're doing."

Josh: "I'm doing good, life was ruff a while back but it's good now."

I picked up another rib sloppily eating it as Josh carefully nibbled on his second rib. 

Me: "Why was it rough?"

Josh: "Because it wasn't easy caring about someone way more than you should and knowing that she's Harry's girl."

Me: "Aw, Josh."

Josh: "But then something interesting happened."

Me: "What happened?"

Josh: "It was a win and a loss... I lost something very, very close to me... Something I loved dearly... I tried to hide my pain... I only cried at nights when I was alone in my room. But then I got a chance, a chance to have what I've wanted for so long. Something I was forbidden to have... I had a chance to hold you, to kiss you, to keep you safe, and I took that chance."

I stared deep into his brown eyes, it killed me to see tears building in his eyes. I care way to much about Josh, and I never realized how close I actually was to him... Seeing him cry makes me want to do anything to make him smile. 

We all miss Harry, and I know that's exactly why he's about to burst into tears...

I stood up and held my hand down in Josh's direction. 

Me: "C'mon."

He stood up and held my hand as we walked closer to the lake. We stopped only inches away from it, I looked up to Josh who was clearly  confused, still holding back tears. 

Me: "This is a special spot, do you know why?"

He shook his head no.

Me: "Then I'll show you why."

I gently rested my hands on Josh's waist and held him closer. I stared into his heavenly brown eyes and couldn't help but smile. My eyes drifted down to his lips and I couldn't help but bite my bottom lip, it seemed as if it was the only thing to hold me back from kissing him at this very moment. I looked back into his eyes melting at the sight of them, I find so much comfort in his eyes it just makes me want to kiss him again and again. I gently placed my hands on his cheeks and watched as a tear feel from his right eye. It's slowly tearing me apart to see him like this. I slowly closed the only space left between us as I softly kissed him. I pulled away for a split second to see that all the tears have left his eyes. I kissed him again.

I whispered. 

Me: "I'm just letting you know, I already lost Harry, I'm never letting you go."

He whispered too.

Josh: "And I won't leave."

This time, he kissed me. 
-
-
-
-
-
Josh: "Well that was just about the most interesting first date I've ever had."

I laughed and kissed his cheek. 

Me: "It sure was purrfect."

He laughed and hugged me. 

Josh: "How about another dinner date tomarrow? Dinner and a movie at my place? Don't worry, I don't bite."

I smiled and laughed quietly before kissing him softly.

Me: "Sounds pawsome. I'll be there."

Best night ever. 

October 27-

One of Liam's friends gave him a bottle for me today. I forgot that there's 70 bottles out there on the search for me, there's no way only one of them is going to find me. This bottle said:

Scarlett,

Ps. This bottle is special, and I can only hope this particular bottle makes it to you. Look in the bottom of the bottle.

A promise ring laid at the bottom of the bottle. I picked it up and read the engraving, 'I Won't Give Up.'
