Daddy Warned Me About Guys Like You

Lennox; She's smart and a goody-goody. She loves school and has two people that she is extremely close to; her brother, Quinton, and her best friend, Addison. She has a twin named Lacey, but quite frankly... she cant stand her. She's never drank, partied, or even kissed a boy. Oh, and the school bad body absolutely disgusts her. Colton; He's every girl's dream, except for Lennox's. He's your typical bad boy who plays every girl he's ever layed eyes on. He's never been in a relationship... he doesnt see the point. He lives by the phrase " Hump and dump. " The difference is... He has secrets. Secrets that nobody knows. Not even his best friend since childhood, Drew. Because if they did know, it would ruin his entire reputation. So what happens when two complete opposites collide? One thing's for sure... both of their worlds will be flipped upside down. Things will be said, hearts will be broken, and lives will be changed. But, the question is... will it be for better or for worse?

5. Chapter Five.

~Lennox's P.O.V.~

 

 

 

 

"Hello?"

"Oh my god. LENNOX. You need to come home now!" She says frantically.

"Why? What happened?"

"You have to get home. Your dad just died." my mom says in tears. Oh my god.

"Okay. Ill get Quinton and Lacey." I say getting up and brushing my self off. He cant be gone. He just cant. I feel tears start to pool in my eyes.

"NO. Just get here as soon as you can." And with that she hangs up.

 

Since I cant get Quinton or Lacey I have to walk home in complete silence. With silence comes thinking. With thoughts comes realization. And with the realization not fully hitting me yet, I can only wait until it does. And when it does, I don't even want to think about it.

I walk for about ten minutes before I'm standing outside my front door. I slowly turn the knob and see my mom crying her eyes out on the couch.

She looks up and runs to give me a hug. Ive never seen my mother cry before. Shes not one to show emotion. She has always just had an emotionless face. Now its filled with sorrow and grief.

I release her and walk over to sit on the couch.

"How?" I whisper.

"He was at work and fell off the ladder. He broke his neck. It was instant." She says still sobbing.

I still cant believe that my dad is gone. The man that raised me. I decide to go for a walk. I need to clear my head.

So, without saying another word to my mom, I stand up and walk outside.

When I get to the sidewalk I break into a full sprint not really knowing where I was headed. Just running. Running away from it all. Running away from the thought that my dad is actually dead. Gone.

After running for about ten minutes I just collapse on the sidewalk. The realization that my dad, the man who was going to walk me down the aisle one day, was gone. And he was never coming back. Realization that He'll never see me graduate high school. He'll never see me go to college. He'll never see me have kids. He'll never tell me he loves me again. It all hit at once and I couldn't take it. So, I just drop. My legs go limp and I can no longer hold my body up. And I don't want to.

 

~Colton's P.O.V.~

When I get to the abandoned building Drew isn't there. I pull out my phone and text him.

'Where the hell are you?!'

'I'm taking care of a little business.'

I don't even text back because I know he's on his way to beat the shit out of somebody.

I get back in my truck and start driving to the local diner when I see Lennox running. No sprinting. Why is she running so fast? And then I witness her fall to the ground in a heap.

When I see her sobbing I feel my heart clench. I stop the truck and get out, ignoring the voices in my head telling me to go back because what I'm doing is stupid.

I walk over to her and kneel down beside her and rub her back.

"Hey, whats wrong?" I ask quietly.

"Go away! Its not like you care. You don't care about sassy bitches like me. So go away!" She shouts shoving me away.

For some reason I just cant leave her here. Not how she is.

"If I didn't care I would've kept driving. But I didn't. I got out of my car and walked over here to you. Now tell me whats wrong." I said sternly.

She just stares at me and I can see the sadness and suffering in her eyes. I pull her into my lap and rub her arms. She's freezing. I pull my jacket off and wrap it around her tiny frame. She sits there and sobs into my chest.

Why do I want to comfort this girl? I should want to laugh at her weakness. I should make her want to cry even harder. But I don't. I don't want her to feel that way. I want that sassy girl that I saw earlier. I want to make her yell at me. It'd be better than watching her cry her eyes out. But, I cant find it in my self to be a smart ass with this beautiful girl sitting in my lap.

Wait, did I seriously just think that?

"He's gone." She says breaking me out of my thoughts. We must have been here for a lot longer than I thought because I can see the sun setting behind the trees.

"Who's gone?" I ask.

"My dad. He's gone. I'll never see him again.He's gone." and with that she starts crying again.

I hold her tighter and let her get it all out. I still cant understand why I'm doing this. But those shocks of electricity running from my head to the tips of my toes are definitely not going unnoticed.

 

~Lennox's P.O.V.~

 

As I'm sitting there crying on Colton I cant understand why I suddenly feel safe. I should be screaming and fighting with him. Not finding comfort in him.

I cant explain why I feel all tingly inside. I don't know why he's being nice to me when earlier he told just how much he hates me.

But, I don't want it to end. I don't want that feeling of safety to leave. For some reason I don't want him to leave.

Eventually I stop crying and just lay my head on his chest.
