The girls also run into a really cute guy named Harry, who lives in the apartment right above the girls. Find out the real reason Callie split with Joseph, and why it impacts her decision to be with him or Harry. Will she give Joseph a second chance or will Harry be her new love?


2. Apologies

Callie's POV

Luckily he didn't see me, so I ran up to Jake's room hoping Lexi would be up there. I knocked on the door and a shirtless Jake opened it.

"Hey Jake, I need to talk to Lexi please?"

Lexi peeked behind Jake to see what was wrong.

"Hey what is it Cal, did something happen?"

I was in tears now, I was scared and I had no idea what to do. So I just walked away, I ran downstairs hoping Lexi would soon follow behind to catch up with me. I didn't know where I was going but at the time I needed to go anywhere but the party. It wasn't until someone grabbed my arm from behind to stop me...

Lexi's POV

I quickly grabbed Jake's t-shirt that was on the bed and pulled it over my head. I ran to go catch up with Callie to see what was wrong and before I knew it I was chasing her down the sidewalk outside. It wasn't until I grabbed her arm from behind that she stopped.

"Callie, what happened?"

I could tell she was crying, but what could have caused it? Some jerk coming on to her at the party-wait. Could that jerk really be him? I sat Callie down in the grass of someones yard.

"Callie, is it Joseph? Did he show up at the party-did he hurt you Callie?"

Through her sobs she shook her head.

"I-I saw him. He-He didn't hurt me though. I don't even think he saw me."

"Then why are you crying Cal, you've never let him get to you like this at school."

"I-I miss him Lex. I don't miss the bad stuff, I miss the good memories him and I have." 

I leaned over and hugged her, I couldn't stand seeing her like this. She promised me though, she promised that she would never go back with Joseph or ever be with someone like him. I could understand why she is having all these feelings now, who could forget their first love?

Since birth me and Callie have been friends, practically sisters. We told each other everything, and last year when Callie told me what had happened between her and Joseph I couldn't believe it. She promised things were over, and they were. I just can't understand why he would do something like that to her, that's why I made her promise to me that she wouldn't ever be with a guy like him. I am just glad that in just a few weeks we will be together, away from him and we will be able to start fresh and new.

I walked Callie back to the party but she didn't go in, and instead she waited on the front doorstep for me to go up and get my stuff from Jake's room.

Callie's POV

I was waiting out in the front yard for Lexi, and when I turned around to go inside to get her I ran into him.

"Oh sorry I just-"

"It's ok Callie."

I knew that voice. I looked up and there he was.

"Sorry, I just need to go inside."

I tried to get by him but he stepped back in front of me. I did not have time for this, I just wanted to get by so I could go get Lexi and leave this place and him. I tried to move past him again but this time he grabbed my arm.

"Ouch, can you please let go."

"No one mentioned to tell me you would be here, otherwise I would have wore that cologne that you used to be so attracted to."

Ughh, was he serious right now?!!

I yanked my arm out of his hand and walked the opposite way. I needed to get out of here now.

"Callie, wait up. I'm sorry."

I was in tears now, and I didn't want him to see it. I couldn't let him know that he broke me.

"Sorry? Really your sorry? How can you say that to me, you practically ruined my life Joseph. Sorry will not fix that. You should be saying sorry to your chances of ever trying to get back with me, because I have finally moved on with my life and from you!"

I was angry now, how could he say that he is sorry and just expect everything to be just fine? After what he did sorry will not cut it.

Joseph's POV

I really was sorry, I was just trying to lighten the mood between us by saying that stuff about the cologne. I actually did know that Callie was going to be here. I really wanted to see her before I moved away. 

I missed Callie, a lot. Yeah I might have slept and hooked up with a bunch of other girls after we broke up, but I only did it because I was trying to make her jealous. I wanted her to come running back to me. I guess I've lost all chances at that, but I'm not giving up quite yet. She'll come around sooner or later, and I just know that after College and everything we will meet again because we are meant to be together. I love Callie, and I will get my second chance with her.

Lexi's POV

I ran up and got my stuff from Jake's room and told him I'd be back tomorrow. I quickly called my sister to see if she could come pick us up. 

L: Hey Kendell, could you please come pick Cal and I up? We really need a ride.

K: Yeah sure just give me like 5 minutes.

L: Ok thanks, we'll meet you-

K: Lexi?

L: Call you back.


I nudged some girl and asked if she knew where Callie was and she pointed me in the direction she went walking. I ran over to catch up, and finally did.

"Callie, where are you going?"


"Just wait here,Kendell is coming to get us."

I called Kendell back and told her where we were. Ten minutes later she came, she drove us to Callie's house and I told her I would be staying the night with her. As we were walking in to her house I made sure to be quiet, knowing everyone was probably asleep. We walked upstairs to Callie's room and she passed out on her bed. The last thing she said before drifting off was his name. 

I went and tucked myself under the covers next to her and drifted off to sleep, wondering why she had said his name.

Callie's POV

Crap. I think she heard me. I didn't mean to say his name, it just kinda came out. It was probably the alcohol in me speaking. I wanted so badly to turn around and go kiss him after he said he was sorry, but could I really? I couldn't ever give him a second chance and I told him that tonight. I'm moving on in my life, so should he. Even after an apology I'm never letting Joseph or anyone for that matter near my heart again.
