Something New

I walk into the house trying to find Jessica but instead I find Dax playing video games while lying lazily on the sofa, when he sees me he shoots up. Leaning against the doorway, I keep my eyes on him just thinking about how he must find me intruding when he steps over to me.

"What are you-" Then Dax kisses me, only slightly and then pulls back.

"Sorry-" But then I pull him back down and we stand there kissing with the fireworks going in our hearts and stomachs.

5. {chapter five}

All week I have been trying to avoid Dax until my luck runs out on Wednesday.

As I walk into the library and take my corner and pick out a book, The Half-Hearted Tale of Calvin Brown, a novel about a girl who has just turned 16 and gone into her junior year at school. The girl ends up falling in love with the school bad boy and she sees no hope in her crush.

Obviously they fall in love and end up together and it is cliché but who doesn’t like a good cliché novel about the quiet girl and the bad boy falling in love?

Calvin ends up admitting his love to the girl but at first she thinks he is joking, and who wouldn’t? The bad boy loves the quiet girl? In what world would that be true?

I keep my head in the book until the bell goes and I find someone stood above me, Dax. He looks to the cover of my book and then sits next to me but I just try to ignore him and he can clearly see that but he just sits there and grabs a book from the nearest shelf, wedging himself between me and the other shelf

A smile appears on my face because the situation is a little funny and we are extremely close. And as he turns a page he nudges me a little.

After a few more minutes of reading and nudging I finally brake and put the book down, turning to him. “Can I help you?” Dax closes his book and turns to me to.

“I am just reading Lexie, is there a problem?” I shake my head and smile and he does too. I stand and brush down my clothes while he just looks up at me.

“I am going for a walk. Would you like to join me?” Dax nods and stands, putting his book back on the shelf.

We step out of the library and walk silently down one hall past all of the quiet classrooms. I don’t want to ask him but for some reason I do, “Did we kiss?” Dax stops and I stop too, that’s a yes. Even if he says no now then I will know he is lying.

“Yes.” I go wide-eyed, he didn’t lie. I start walking again, in the direction of my locker. Dax follows.

“Shit.” I mumble to myself as I open my locker.


I throw myself on my bed and sigh loud enough for Luke to hear and come into my room to ask what’s up. “I’m just annoyed.”

“Why?”He asks, sitting on my bed.

“Life.” I reply, sitting up.

“That party was great Lex.”

“I know right.” I smile at Luke and put my arms around his waist, hugging him tightly.

At that moment my phone begins to ring and I look to it, Miles, is up on the screen, Luke sees this and stands, leaving the room to give me privacy.

“Hi, I have something to tell you.” We say together.

“I’m coming over.” I say grabbing my cardigan and keys.


Adam greets me and tells me Miles is in his room but before I go he stops me, “Are you okay?” I nod and continue up the stairs and run into Miles’ room.

“Hi! Tell me everything.” Miles says, standing.

“You first.” Miles goes to argue with my kindness but decides to tell me instead, he sits on the bed, picks up my hand and looks into my eyes. “You aren’t going to tell me you love me are you?” I joke and Miles gets that, laughing along with me.

“No, it’s about a girl.” I nod. “The girl I was with at the party, Hannah, we went on a date the other day and I asked her to be my girlfriend.”

“Bit fast don’t you think?” I say and Miles nods.

“I thought that but she said yes.” I smile and hug Miles. “Now what’s your news?” I take a deep breath and pull a face.

“I had my first kiss.” Miles goes a little wide-eyed and I stand, looking down at him.

“With who?” I twiddle my thumbs.

“Um...” Miles gives me a stern look. “Dax.” Miles jumps up.

“What?” Then Miles grabs his phone and dials a number, I crease my brow.

“What are you doing?” Miles tells me to be quiet and leaves the room. I am worried now because who listens to their friend saying they kissed the bad boy and then starts calling someone urgently? What if it is Luke?

I run out of the room and find Adam stood in the hall, looking in one of the cupboards. “Adam, where did Miles go?” I ask urgently. I could at least listen to what he is saying if he is trying to not let me know.

“I don’t know. But he was talking about a kiss?” My heart drops.

“Shit!” I exclaim, running downstairs and into the kitchen. I see him stood outside on the phone, pacing.

I step outside and stop Miles, he stops talking. “Who is it?” I ask, trying to get the phone but he puts it out of my reach. I try to catch a glimpse but I can’t see it properly. “Who the hell are you calling Miles?” I say jumping for the phone.

“Why the hell would you kiss him?” Miles says in disgust and I stop trying to get the phone, I leave the garden and the whole house for that fact, flipping Miles off as I do.


When I get home I go straight to my room and begin to cry, why was Miles so inconsiderate? What is so bad with me kissing Dax? It was just a kiss, nothing else. I never knew he could be so rude and mean towards me and what I want.

Wait...what I want? I don’t want Dax.

There is a knock at the door downstairs and I sit up straight away from my pillow. If it is Miles I don’t want to speak to him but if it someone else I will talk to them.

I hear the door open and then Luke speaking, angrily. I run out of my room and to the top of the stairs to just see Luke pushing whoever it is outside.

Running downstairs, I recognise the other voice, Dax. As I open the door I see Luke punch Dax hard in the jaw and he falls to the grass. I run out. “Luke, what the hell?” I say, stepping in front of him.

I turn and see Dax groaning, holding his face as he tries to stand.

“He kissed Grace, my girlfriend.” I let a breath go, it isn’t about me and Dax. Luke tries to reason with me but his answer makes no sense.

“There was no need to punch him though Luke.” Luke smirks at Dax and steps back from me, putting his hands up.

“There was every need.” Then Luke runs around me, taking Dax down to the grass again in a head first tackle. As Luke punches Dax’s stomach he speaks, “First you take my popularity and now you take my girlfriends.” Luke shouts angrily as he punches him repeatedly.

Attention is being attracted to them as a few neighbours come out onto their porches or look through their windows. “Stop!” I shout at Luke, trying to pull him off Dax but I fail because I am too weak. Miles runs up my path and stops the two of them, then looks at me as if to ask if it was about what he thinks it is about. I shake my head.

“What is this all about Luke?” Miles pushes him back against the wall.

“He kissed Grace.” Miles sighs and puts him down then he turns to Dax.

“You better go.” Dax nods and climbs up but then gives me a look of pity before he heads off down the path, what was he even doing here?


Wednesday was eventful but finally the weekend is here and I have managed to avoid Dax for the rest of the week. I wasn’t too sure I wanted anyone to see me with him. And I still feel the same, if people see me with him they may think I am going against Luke.

The popular group has split in 2, Dax, Jessica, Grace and their friends on 1 side and Luke, Miles, and our friends, including Robert on the other side.

It is kind of like the whole school has split in 2, everyone choosing which side to go on, or to bet on.

There are people trying to make bets on which side will crack first. Personally, I think it is stupid and annoying but it is just something that is happening at school.

Robert asked me out to the cinema tonight and I accepted, thinking that it may take my mind off of everything that is happening right now.

Robert picks me up at 9 and I run out to his car, climbing quickly as it is raining outside and I don’t want my hair to get wet. He kisses my cheek and I blush a little.

“What are we going to see?” I ask and I belt up and he pulls away from my house. Robert shrugs. “How about that new film Ruby Sparks?” Robert turns to me and nods, smiling.


As I sit down in the cinema with a packet of sweets I place them in the cup holder. Robert turns and smiles at me as I pull a cute face at him. “So, how are you?” He asks I shrug a little.

“Luke is still a little mad at Dax and the whole school is splitting in half because of it.” I explain and Robert nods.

My hand is on the rest and Robert sees that, putting his on top. I turn to him and he smiles, rubbing my hand a little. I don’t know whether or not to allow it but I do anyway because it is nice and soothing.

The film stars and half way through I adjust in my seat and Robert puts his arm over me casually without the yawn and I lean into his shoulder.

It is nice, comforting and in that moment all I can think of is Dax. I don’t want to be, I want to be thinking of Robert but I can’t, Dax is all that is on my mind. The way he kissed me, the way he looks at me, the deepness, the caring ways of him, I never see him look at anyone else that way.

Is it just me?

The film ends and we both stand, Robert links his fingers with mine and we walk out of the cinema. “Do you want any food?” He asks as we step outside, I shake my head.

“I’m fine.” Robert nods and we head back to the car park.

“I’ll take you home.” I nod as we get into his car.


I step out of the car and so does Robert, he walks me to my door and we stand in the porch in silence. It is a little awkward and I wonder whether or not he will kiss me.

When he leans in, I freak a little. My first kiss I was caught off guard and I have never had any practise kissing boys, what if my breath stinks or there is something in my teeth. Will he use tongue?

I chicken out and kiss his cheek, say goodbye and slip into the house, sliding down the door I sigh and curse a little. I hear laughing from behind the sofa and stand, walking over I see Luke butt naked on the living room floor. I fly back. “Oh god.” I say running up the stairs.

I run into my room and slam the door, flinging my bag into the wardrobe I sit on the bed.

Within moments I am fast asleep.


Saturday morning it is and I just feel like lazing around until I get a text from Jess asking me to come around to her house. So I have to get up and shower, look nice even though I am only going to a friend’s house, but that friend just happens to be the sister to the boy I am avoiding.

I am ready by 10 and text her to say I am heading over.

I jump into my car, which smells like roses for some reason, and start it up. Before I can pull away there is a knock on my window and I turn to find Luke climbing in the passenger seat. He turns to me. “Sorry about last night. I thought you’d go to-” I snort at him.

“You thought I’d go to Robert’s? What kind of girl do you think I am?” I say in disgust.

“Sorry, I am just apologising because of what you may have or may not have seen.”

“Who even is she because I can tell you it wasn’t Grace!” I shout, staring at him. Luke sneers at me and gets out of the car, leaving me annoyed and angry at him.

I pull out of the drive and beep at him, he turns and I flip him off with a smirk. Luke flips me off and storms back into the house.

With that I drive off to Jessica’s.

I walk into the house trying to find Jessica but instead I find Dax playing video games while lying lazily on the sofa topless, I can see the bruises from the other day spotted over his ripping chest and face. When Dax sees me he shoots up. Leaning against the doorway, I keep my eyes on him just thinking about how he must find me intruding when he stands and steps over to me.

"What are you-" Then Dax kisses me, only slightly and then pulls back.

"Sorry-" But then I pull him back down and we stand there kissing with the fireworks going in our hearts and stomachs.
