Learning to Trust

*Sequel to Different From the Rest*
Kady is grown up now. She is now eighteen, a far cry from fourteen. There is no One Direction, if you asked your kids about them they'd be like "are you high again?" Kady's stutter is long gone, but the fears from it will never surrender. Being alone, forgotten, useless. Mainly she can't trust, anyone, not others around her, not herself. She makes a mistake that can't be fixed, and must go on with her life. Kady has to learn that you must leave the past behind you before you can move forward and not all mountains can be moved. It's a bowl of cherries, with a few-no many, nuts thrown in.

15. Paddle Boarding

"Get the hell away from me!" I laugh pushing Liam off of me, "I want to go swimming now!"
I'm already in my swimsuit, and all I want to do is swim. 
"Fine, but you have to give the Kiss Monster a big, big, big kiss," he says cheekily. 
"Fine," I gruff and Liam goes on top of me. I'm lying down on the bed. I put my hands at the side of his torso, and he puts his hands around my back, slowly lifting me up. Things just got steamy already at eight in the morning. He puts his tongue in, and I grant him access. I sit up without breaking the kiss, and now Liam is lying down. I'm now on top and my knees are on either side of his legs. My hands play with his hair, but he keeps kissing. I sit back onto his thighs and I pull away, "Time to swim now!"
"But I liked this better!"
"You promised, and I was thinking two seconds at best, you got lucky Li."
Suddenly, a sly grin appears on his face and he picks me up bridal style and starts running out the door, "Li, what are you doing?"
He continues to run carrying me and goes down the elevator, "Put me down!"
He runs out the back door of the hotel and goes over to the pool. I sense what's going to happen. Oh shit, "No, please, please, please no, please!"
I yell kicking him. That just motivates him to run faster. When he's about to throw me in, I tightly grab onto his thick skin. He throws me and I go flying, well that didn't work. I hit the water with a splash. The ice cold water runs through my bones like it was a race. I surface, doing the doggy paddle to keep my head above the surface. 
"I thought you knew how to swim, Kads."
"I do, but it's just too cold," I say shivering. Liam jumps, pulling his knees to his chest. He almost lands on top of me, but I get a death splash, just his plan. I doggy paddle to the shallow end, knowing he'll follow me. He does just as I predicted and that's when I splash him with the freezing water. It looks weak compared to all the ambushing Li's done to me this morning. 
"Stop now," Liam says putting his hand up in defeat. I stop, but just for a second to listen to him. He takes my hand, "We actually have places to go."
"Should I change?" I ask stepping out of the water and wrapping a white, fuzzy towel around the length of my body. 
"Nope, just come with me, we can walk."
We walk on the shoreline. It reminds me so much of home, see what I mean about not changing things?! 
"We are here!" Liam stops us in front of some surf shack. 
"We are surfing?" I ask. 
"God, no. We are paddle boarding," he says. Okay, I did this at camp several years ago, lets see if I can remember anything. This should be interesting. Li rents us two paddle boards with ores. He hands one to me and he takes off into the ocean. I push the board in, then I try to get on. I end up getting on my knees. The board rocks back and forth from underneath me, until I flip over. When I come up, Li is standing on his board laughing and clapping. Something about his laugh makes me want to laugh, so we are just two laughing freaks. I get on my board, but again only on my knees. Liam paddles over to help me up, "Here,I've done this before."
"Really, I couldn't tell," I say sarcastically. Liam lifts me up, somehow keeping his balance. I wobble a little, but eventually I stand up straight. 
"That's better," I say brushing myself off. 
"OMG, did you break a nail too?" asks Liam mockingly. With all my might, I push Liam. He stumbles backward and falls off. He swims over to my board.  
"No!" I yell dropping down and holding onto the sides of the board. He tries to pry my fingers loose, but that's not happening. I imagine the board as being my old life, the normal one. Just hold onto it for five more seconds and you can have your old life back, I tell myself, but all I'm doing is lying to my mind. All the sudden, there are sharp kicks in my stomach. I let go of the board and I wrap my arms over my stomach in pain. 
"What?" asks Liam who stopped shaking my board. 
"I'm…fine, the baby is just kicking really hard," I say. How am I supposed to deal with this for the next five months? It already hurts enough. It's as if I had to take ten tests in one day and if I failed one, my life is over. I can't ruin this for Liam, he was the one who payed for this trip, and I can't spoil it for him, "I'm fine, the baby will just have to learn that the world does not revolve around it."

Sorry guys! Short chapter. The next chapter will be longer though. It will be in five months when Kady has her baby. Comment your favorite name for a girl and name for a boy and I might just use it! (I will give credits for the name)
