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?

9. Chapter Nine.

~Lennox's P.O.V.~

 

 

 

 

I walked around the entire house and nobody was home. Everything was tore up. I ran up to my room to see if my room was hit too.

When I got to my door I flung it open and flopped in my room. It was just the way I left it. Thank God.

I look at my bed and see a piece of paper lying on it.

I walk over slowly and read it.

" Lennox, you didn't come home last night and honestly, I didn't really expect you to. I'm pretty sure you've seen the house by now. You're probably going to hate me, just like your brother and sister do after I tell you this. I'm leaving and I'm not coming back. With your dad being gone I just cant take it. I feel like I've failed you guys your entire life. Your dad was the one who did most of the raising you kids. I love you guys. I really do. But I cant stay here knowing what a terrible mother I've been to all of you. Goodbye Lennox. I love you. 

-Mom. "

 

I felt the tears sting my cheeks as I collapsed and fell on the floor. How could she just leave like that? She was right. I do hate her. I hate her more than anything right now.

I pull my phone out of my pocket and call my brother.

"Hello?" He answers.

"Q?!" I practically scream. "Where are you?!"

"Len, I'm on my way home. Do you know?" He asks. I can tell he's on the verge of tears.

"Yeah. Hurry up Q. I don't want to be here alone."

"Okay. Ill be there in five minutes." He says before hanging up.

For five minutes I just sit there and cry. Cry for my mother. Cry for my father. Cry for how my siblings must feel. Cry for how I feel. Everything.

When I hear a light tap on my door I know its my brother. I feel a dip in my bed and feel his protective arms envelope me in a hug. I bury my tear stained face into his chest and sob.

"What are we gonna do Q?" I ask when I sober up.

"I don't know, sis. But I do know that I have to step up and take care of you and Lacey. Just like dad did."

"Where is Lacey?" I ask.

"Right here." I hear her faint voice at my doorway.

I look over at her and she runs over to me and Quinton and he does the same thing with her as he did for me.

What would I do without my brother?

"Guys?" I hear Lacey practically whisper.

"Yeah?" Me and Q say simultaneously.

"I'm sorry."

"For what?" Q asks.

"For treating you guys like shit. Especially Lennox. We used to be best friends when we were little. We wore matching outfits and everything. What happened?" Nobody's crying anymore. I think we're all just about out of tears.

"I don't know Lace. I guess high school happened. You became the popular one, and I became the goody-goody who only cares about grades."

"I'm sorry, Lennox. I really am. Can we go back to how we were in Kindergarten? Well, except for the matching clothes?Well, we can do that on occasion." She rambles on.

I just chuckle. "Yes, Lacey. Truce?"

"Truce." And with that I reach around my brother and hug Lacey.

"Love you guys." Lacey says.

"Love you too." We say.

 

 

*Next day*

 

We're going around cleaning up the house. I asked Q what happened to it and he explained that when mom told him the news about my dad he freaked. The when she told him she was leaving... he did this.

Last night everyone slept in my room. Nobody ate dinner. Nobody knows how to cook.

I have no clue how we're going to survive on our own.

I hear my phone ring and I pull it out of my pocket. I see Colton's name pop up and I immediately answer.

"Hello?" I say, trying not to sound too happy.

"You free today?"

"Uh, yeah. Why?"

"Good. Ill be at your house in two."

"But, I'm not ready." I cant go out in my pajamas.

"Ill be there in two. Bye Lennox."

UGHHHH.

I walk into the kitchen and see Quinton putting glass shreds into a box.

"I'm leaving. Ill be back later."

"Where you going? and when?" he asks.

"My friend is picking me up. and in two minutes." I cant tell him Colton is the one picking me up. He'd probably die if he found out I was hanging out with him.

"Alright. Don't be out too late." It feels weird having my brother act like a parent.

"Okay." I walk over and give him a hug. I hear a honk and grab my slippers and run outside. I feel stupid.

When I get in the passenger seat I hear Colton start to chuckle.

"I told you I wasn't ready." I say dully. I'm so embarrassed.

 

~Colton's P.O.V.~

 

 

When she said she wasn't ready, she wasn't kidding. Good thing we're not going anywhere fancy. She looks cute though. I can tell she still isn't very happy though. But, today I'm going to change that. I am going to make her happy.

"So where are we going?" she asks.

"That's for me to know you to dot dot dot..." I say. Crap. I hope she doesn't watch Vampire Diaries. That would be embarrassing.

"You watch Vampire Diaries?! Oh my god. TEAM DAMON.!" well, she does.

"Yeah." I can feel my face heating up. Why am I blushing? I never blush.

"Awe. You're blushing. Don't be embarrassed. Guys can watch that too." She says seriously.

"Whatever." She just giggles. God, that giggle is so cute. I just want to grab her face and kiss the life out of her.

Why am I acting like this? She's not my girlfriend. She will never be my girlfriend. I don't 'do' relationships. One night stands. That's all.

For some reason, I like her presence. I like how I feel when I'm around her.

But I cant let myself fall for her. Absolutely not. Ive seen plenty of people who have gotten their heart broke by girls. I wont let that happen to me. But the the thing is, I kinda already feel like I'm falling. Hard.

 

~Lennox's P.O.V.~

Why do I feel so happy around Colton? Ive never really had a real boyfriend. Yeah, I had a couple in elementary school, but those don't count.

All I know is that somehow, on my worst days, Colton makes me smile. And I don't know how. My dad just died, and my mom just left. I should be crying my eyes out, but instead I'm with him, happy.

Does that make me a bad person.?

"Colton?" I ask.

"Yeah?" He asks.

"Can we just go to your house? I need somebody to talk to."

"Yeah. Sure."

I smile and say thank you.

 

 

When we get to his house he leads me up to his room and I go and sit on his bed.

I think about everything that has happened to me in the past two days and I break down in tears.

 

~Colton's P.O.V.~

 

She sits on my bed and I just stare at her beauty. Then she breaks down crying. I run over to her and hold her in my arms.

Seeing her cry makes my heart shatter into a million pieces. I don't know how she's having this affect on me and right now I don't care.

I just want to comfort her and hold her in my arms. I want to see her smile, and giggle whenever I want. I realize, that I want her to be mine.
