The Love Of My Life

I 'had' a normal life. I guess you can say that?! When I say 'had' its because its true. I had a family that I loved and they loved me back. Though I was the only child I was happy either way. Everything changed in my life, the day of my birthday. I never thought that one accident would ruin my life forever. Or so I thought.
Years pass and I meet new people and loose others, in which many of these people I regret knowing... But I will never regret laying my eyes on a pair of glowing caramel eyes. After him everything changed.


1. Chapter 1: My Birthday (Part 1)

I 'had' a normal life. I guess you can say that?! When I say 'had' its because its true. I had a family that I loved and they loved me back. Though I was the only child I was happy either way. Everything changed in my life, the day of my birthday. I never thought that one accident would ruin my life forever. Or so I thought... 


 "I can't wait for tonight!!!" I told my best friend Jasmine who I call "Jazz" for short 


"I know me either, even though your the one who's turning 16, haha". 


"I know I feel old but in a good way, my parents are gonna be there, I'm so excited." I haven't seen my mom and dad in two week because they went to England for vacation, but agreed to fly back home to California for my birthday. 


"I have to go get ready for your birthday dinner Sky..." That's what she calls me for short, since my name "Skylar" (Pronounced Skyler) is hard for a few people to actually pronounced. "... But I'll see you at the restaurant at 7. Bye" 


"Bye, see you then". She hung up seconds later and I just laid on my bed smiling like a freak. I had so much going on in my mind right now.


 I was turning 16 today (August 14), 'what could happen this year?' 'Will me and Tyler still be dating?' Me and Tyler have been dating since the beginning of my Sophomore year, so we've dated for almost 14 months since two July's ago. Anyways, me and Tyler where as happy as any other couple but we had our ups and downs. He wasn't coming to my birthday dinner though which made me a little upset. 'Did he not want to spend my birthday with me?' Tyler was a really good looking guy, he could have any girl he wanted in the school but no he picked me. He looked a lot like 'A Sexy Tumbler Guy' (Pic Under A/N) very buff and sexy. His eyes are gorgeous green and that's one of the reasons I fell in love with him because I would melt every time he stared into my eyes. He also had great dark black hair. I've never felt anything like it, only when i'm around him of course. But i'm going crazy with one question... 'What did my parents get me for my birthday?!'


My mom works two jobs, one as a professional Photographer and the other as a Model. She had me when she was young, probably when she was 18 or 19. Either way she works part time and makes good money, but travels a lot, so I don't spend a lot of time with her. 

My dad is a Manager and he's always super busy and leaves the state a lot so I don't get to see him as much either. So that's why I'm so excited to actually be spending time with them tonight.

I work at a little coffee shop, a few blocks down from where I live. I don't make the coffee, I play the piano in the shop, I entertain the people in the coffee shop as they sip on their drinks. I love playing piano it's soothing and calms me down. It doesn't pay much but it's good enough for me to be able to buy food and clothes for myself.


--About 10 minutes later I heard my phone ring next to me and without looking at the caller I.D. I just decided to answer. "Hello?" 


"Happy Birthday, Sweet Heart!!!" Both my Mom and Dad said through the phone. I sat up from lying in my bed. "Aww, thanks guys." "We're very excited to see you later tonight for dinner, is Tyler coming...?" My mom asked. I looked down to my feet trying not to sound hurt. "No. He said he was busy today but he would hang out with me tomorrow." 


"I'm sorry to hear that honey." My dad said.


"It's ok, I guess. As long as I get to be with him tomorrow I'll survive but I'm bringing Jazz" 


"That great and Skylar we decided to give you your birthday present a little early..." My eyes grew 5 times their regular size with happiness and I was more excited then ever. 


"... Your father decided that it would be a great idea for you to try it out later tonight". My mom said.


"AAAAH!!!! Ok well what is it?! Where is it?! Don't let me wait I'm freaking out over here!!!!" And I seriously was. "Ok ok. Why don't you head out to the garage and figure it out for yourself" 


And when my dad said that last sentences I ran faster then I have ever ran before, almost tripping down the stairs but that didn't stop me. I reached the garage door and flung it open to see thee shiniest and most beautiful White Audi R8 ever (Pic Under A/N). 


I slowly walked to it, my mouth wide open in shock and my finger gently rubbing on the side of the car.


"Skylar are you there?" My mom called from the other end of the phone. I have forgotten that I was talking to them.


"OhMyGosh, Thank You Guys So Much, This Means So Much To Me, You Don't Know How Grateful I Am To Have The Best Parent In The World!!!!!!" "Aw, your welcome sweet heart. We're glad you liked it" my mom said. "Liked it?! MOM I LOVE IT!!!" "Haha ok ok. We have to hang up now but we will see you at dinner tonight at 7. The keys are in the kitchen cabinet, if you'd like to take it out for a spin or maybe even take it to dinner... Go right ahead. It's all yours" my dad said.


"Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!! I can't wait to see you guys tonight so I can hug you guys tighter than ever" "Alright honey have fun, not to much, see you tonight bye. Love you" my mom said. "Love you guys too, bye" and with that I hung up and went to find the keys. Once I found them I ran to MY new White Audi R8. I sat in the driver seat, and put the key in and twisting it, hearing the motor roar. I open the garage doors and went for a test drive. 


*** I came back after half an hour later to get ready. Driving this car by the San Francisco coast line, by the beach, made me the happiest person I could ever be. 'Nothing could ruin this day'. I told myself with a huge grin on my face.  




(Later that night. 6:30)


I took a cold shower (like always) and then got out to dry my body and hair. Once my hair was dry I let it loose, since I have natural dark brown straight hair that falls right under my waist. I was just finishing my make up and putting my shoes on. I put on my white Victoria Secret Crisscross Dress, it falls just above my knees. I put on some jewelry and the necklace (A Silver Scorpio Rose Quartz Natural 'Pink' Crystal Stones Necklace). Tyler gave me on our first anniversary (Pic Under A/N). My make up was a small smokey eye shadow with a bit of eye liner, mascara, and strawberry lip gloss. I put on my black sneaker wedges to finish the final touch of my outfit. Suddenly my phone began to ring. I looked at the caller I.D. and saw who it was

-Incoming Call From: Tyler<3- After the fourth ring I picked it up placing it by my ear smiling widely, hoping he was coming to dinner. "Hey Tyler" "Hey, Doll... Happy Birthday" Tyler said. I couldn't help but smile and giggle a bit for him calling me that. I didn't like it but I thought it was cute in a way. "Thanks Babe. Have you changed your mind about coming to my birthday dinner?" 


"Yea about that..." He paused for a second. But soon continued "... You know I can't make it and I'm sorry for that but I don't think I'll be able to hang out with you tomorrow either" 


I felt my heart literally stop beating when I heard him say that. I had watery eyes, trying my best not to cry and ruin my make up. "B-but you said y-yo-" "Sky I know what I said, I've just been busy and I won't be able to hang out with you not today nor tomor-" Tyler was in a gang and he always put them before me. I cut him off before he could continue. "Tyler! You promised me you would be with me tomorrow. I let you not coming to my birthday dinner slide but YOU NOT EVEN BEING ABLE TO VISIT ME TOMORROW EITHER... Just pisses me off! You always put your gang before me" I began to cry, I couldn't take it anymore. We were quiet for a few minutes than he spoke up "Skylar? Doll. I'm sorry I truly am. But I have a present waiting for you outside of your front door. Please forgive me." 


I stood up and headed down the stairs and opened the door. There stood a huge teddy bear and what seemed to be 2 dozen flowers. I smiled to myself knowing that he still cares about me either way. "Happy Birthday Doll" he said. "Thank You. You might not be coming today or tomorrow but... I get it. I understand, I forgive you." "Thanks Doll. I hope you like it." 


"Tyler, I have to go but I'll call you tomorrow." 


"Ok. I'll be waiting for your call"


I giggled "Ok. I love you."


"I love you too, Doll bye"


I went upstairs, fixed my make up and headed out to Jazz's house.
