Teenage Kings

As a new student at HBHS (Huntington Beach High School), Kaylynn is trying to make a new start. Despite her belief, making new friends isn't that hard for her. She meets three boys who are eager to be her friend. But as her social life rises, she realizes that there are many more meanings to the word "like" when it comes to boys. Crushes, let-downs, drama, and cat fights. This will be a school year she will never forget.


9. Chapter Nine

     I followed Keaton back up the stairs. As we reached the top of the stairwell, Wesley and Laraine walked through the front door. 

     Laraine smiled wide as she saw me and walked over giving me a hug. "Oh hi Kaylynn! It's so good to see you again! I hope you're not leaving! Wes and I brought home pizza!" She said as she let go of me. 

    Wesley looked to me with a slight smile as he held the box of pizza in his hand. I looked away from him and back to Keaton. "No, Keaton insisted that I stay so of course I couldn't say no." I laughed faintly.

     I followed the Stromberg crowd to the dining room. Laraine put papaer plates in front of four seats and pulled out napkins. 

     "Do you boys know if your sisters will be home?" she asked as we sat at the table. I sat myself besides Keaton. Laraine took the chair in front of him leaving Wesley to sit in front of me.

     The boys both shrugged. Keaton grabbed a slice of pizza from the box and placed it onto his plate. He eagerly licked his lips.

     Laraine shook  her head towards her son. "Keaton, you are almost sixteen. You should know better than that! We always serve our guests first!" She wasn't yelling but her voice sounded firm.

     "No, it's okay." I laughed a bit. "I don't mind."

     Keaton chuckled a bit. "Sorry KayKay."

     Wesley took a piece and placed it on my plate before grabbing his own and taking a bite. He did it without a sound or an expression on his face. Laraine smiled. "Good boy Wesley. Such a good boy!" She laughed and rubbed his shoulder. Wesley chuckled and took another bite of his slice. 

     I laughed a bit and thanked him but did not look in his eyes. The truth was, I'm scared of him. After what he did to me, well I cannot look at him the same again. I can still taste the fumes of th weed in my mouth. 

     We ate in silence until Laraine decided it was time to talk. "So, did you guys have fun last night? Oh! I hope you didn't bring sweet little Kaylynn to any of those wild parties, did you?"

     Keaton laughed and shook his head. "No Ma! Never!" He proclaimed with a mouth full of food.

     "We all just met up at the beach and lit a small bonfire. That's all." Wesley added shortly after.

     Laraine smiled and looked to me. "Well I hope you made friends Kaylynn! They are all very nice kids." 

    I nodded my head but didn't speak. I felt awkward in Wesley's presence. The rest of dinner continued on with the Strombergs talking about family things and laughing. This was new for me. I never had fun family dinners. Mine are usually spent alone in my room with a 5-Minute Meal. 

    I helped clear the table when we finished eating. Wesley left the room and I thanked Laraine for having me. I bid my goodbyes to Keaton and grabbed my bag walking to the front door. Wesley stopped me before I could leave. 

     "Kaylynn, can we talk for a second?" His voice was soft and he looked to me with gently eyes. 

     I swallowed hard and nodded looking up to meet his glance. "Uh, sure."

     He cleared his throat and stuffed his hands into his pockets. "So uh, I owe you an apology for last night." He shook his head a bit. "What I did was wrong and I shouldn't have done it. You said 'no' and I should have just left you alone. I just, you sat there all alone and looked so bored, and I just for some reason thought maybe a puff would loosen you up and get you going. I'm really really sorry Kaylynn." The look in his eyes told me that he meant what he was saying. He was actually sorry. "I've been meaning to apologize for a really long time but I couldn't find it in me to approach you after what I did. I really don't want you to hate me because, I think you're really cool. And if you don't want to try something than that's fine by me. I really can't express how sorry I am. I promise I'll make it up to you." 

     Something about the way he was talking was different. He wasn't using his usual slang and he didn't have attitude in his voice. I didn't think Wesley had such a soft side. This changed everything that I had thought about him. I smiled a bit. "No, it's okay Wesley." Was all I could manage to say. 

     A smile formed on his once striaght lips. His smile lines became present on his cheeks. "Alright, good. I feel like the world has been lifted off of my shoulders now." He laughed a bit and kept looking into my eyes. "How about I make up for all of this on Saturday? How would you feel for a coffee get-together Saturday afternoon?" 

    I chuckled a bit. "That sounds lovely." 

     Wesley removed his hands from his pockets and patted his thighs. "Alrighty. I'll pick you up in my super awesome new car then." He smiled.

     I laughed and nodded. "Okay, see you at school Wes." I said as I walked out.

     As I walked on home, I couldn't get Keaton off of my mind. I should have expected this. Sabrina was one lucky girl. There was no doubt in my mind that I'd soon lose the only friend I had to her. Sabrina would never allow Keaton to hang out with me, she saw me as her biggest threat. I would have to face the terrors of high school alone, yet again. This wasn't fair to me. The one guy I have ever felt so strongly for, I could not have and it sucks. This all sucks. I was going to be alone forever.

     There was no way I was going to get any sleep with all of this on my mind.
