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.


17. Chapter 17: Treat You Better




(Skylar's POV)


Friday morning, I woke up to my alarm clock. The second it rung I quickly turned it off before it gave me a head ache. One it was off I heard talking down stairs, probably Tyler on the phone or something.


I walked into the bathroom and did my usually routine. I took a cold fifteen minute shower, dried my body and hair leaving it down to fall flatly bellow my waist. That's what sucks about m,y hair, it's naturally straight so when I want to curl it it'll take hours. I walked to my closet and searched for an outfit to wear. I decided to go with a grey tank top, blue short shorts, and grey toms (Pic Under A/N, My Brownish Hair and Jewelry Included). it seemed like a nice warm day, so why not. 


I went into my bathroom and began doing my make up which was just eye liner and a coat of mascara. I looked at my neck and saw the hickey Justin gave me Wednesday fading away slowly. The though of Justin's lips on mine caused my checks to turn slightly pink. I composed myself trying not to think  about it once I realized Tyler will kill me if he saw it. I covered up the almost gone mark with foundation/cover up and it was pretty much gone. I took another glance at my neck and noticed the necklace Tyler gave me only a few years back dangling around my neck. The pink diamond shined when the light hit it, the necklace brought a smile to my face. I have to try and make this work with Tyler. I'm not sure how just yet but I just have to try and see where it goes. Once I was done with that I put on my grey toms, grabbed my backpack, and headed down stairs into the kitchen. 


When I stepped in I didn't see anyone causing me to frown. I shrugged and put my backpack on the counter before going to the counter and reaching out for a bowl to poured myself some cereal. As I was pouring my milk I felt someone's arms snake around my waist causing me to jump with the though of Zac. I quickly put the milk down and turned to see no other than Tyler.


Thank god. I smiled widely knowing that it wasn't Zac. 


"Why so happy" he asked while raising an eyebrow. 'This is your chance to see if he still cares and is still the boy you fell in love with' I thought. Like I said I have to try and right now is a perfect opportunity.


"Just happy to... See you. I guess" I smiled, a genuine smile.


"Ok? You no not to lie!" His eyebrows shot up. his eyes showing hurt, anger, and worry. I have no idea why he would think I would lie about that. 'After what he's caused you?' A voice said. But it was true.


"I'm not. I promise" I smiled at him and wrapped my arms around his neck, testing the waters.


"Hmm alright. But I haven't really seen you all day" he pouted playfully causing me to giggle softly. he always find a way to make me smile. Just like Justin.


'Stop! Your just friends remember! That's it, nothing more nothing less' I reminded myself. Although Justin does make me smile, I wont lie.


"I know... I didn't see you at school yesterday. Where were you?"


"Don't worry about it doll" His arms tightened around my waist as he pushed me onto the island counter carefully.


"Ok" I dropped the subject knowing he didn't want me to know and I didn't want to kill the moment.


He started to lean in and I leaned in as well as our lips met. It was a soft and sweet kiss, nothing argent. I felt something maybe a little spark but no fireworks like Justin's kiss, which confused me. I can't say I'm not in love with Tyler but this passed few years has changed a lot of this. I would have never guessed that our connect would be one of them. Our lips moved in sync as it began to get rougher and he licked my bottom lip for entrance I was about to give it to him until we heard someone clear their throat.


I stopped kissing Tyler and turned to see all of his gang standing by the kitchen door on the other side of the island counter. Danny and Mark with a straight face. Luis and Kevin with smirks across their faces, I just wanted to slap them then and there for their perverted mines. Then there was Zac who looked kind of pissed but I could care less for that jerk.



Mark was hot but not as hot as Tyler, he had dark brown hair and brown eyes. He was the tallest out of the others. Mark was second in command in Tyler's gang. Mark is all about business.


Danny, Kevin, and Luis were all the same height and third tallest. Danny also had dark brown hair but green eyes. He was hot too. Not my type though. Danny is a straight up guy, which means when it comes to business he takes it serious and every once in a while he'll joke around.


Luis has black hair and blue eyes. He's real sexy. But him and Kevin have the most perverted minds ever. That's why they're best mates.


Kevin has really dirt blond brown hair. He's eyes are blue as well as Luis's. He's hot but like I said him and Luis are huge perverts.


And you all know about Zac. Him and Tyler both around the same height, which makes them the second tallest in their gang. 


When it comes to people to trust in business, they trust each other. But  when it's not business they go to their best mate. Marks mate is Danny and Danny is Mark. Luis's bud is Kevin and Kevin's is Luis. Then there's Tyler and Zac. They are the ones who have the most problems but since there're best of buds they forgive each other to easily.



"Can I help you" Tyler growled. I'm pretty sure he was pissed for ruining our moment. I mean it's rare when we're rapped in each others arms enjoying each others company without one of us getting hurt. 


"We have to get going soon" Mark demanded. I told you he was all business.


"Can I have a minute to talk to MY girl" he voice rising slightly. 


I still had my arms around Tyler's neck and he still had his arms around my waist while we both glared at his friends.


"We don't have time" Zac spat out. 


"Fine" Tyler spat back before sighing. 


I looked at Tyler and smiled softly. I was also a bit upset with his friends, I mean this was such a great start and it ended so quickly, I couldn't help but get a little upset. Letting him know everything will be alright. What ever the hell they were going.


I looked into Tyler's beautiful green eyes as he looked into my hazel ones, both off us not saying just enjoying each others company.


"Doll I have to go but I'll be home soon" Tyler whispered while bending over slightly so his forehead was touching mine. Our eyes not looking away from each others.


"Your not going to school" I asked cautiously. 'And to think we could test these waters at school, just to see if he would act the same' I thought.


"No, sorry doll. I'll be home later tonight"




"You'll be ok right" he asked, his voice concerned.


"Of course" I smiled trying to convince him.


"Alright, you know the rules" he playfully reminded.


"Yeah" I sighed playfully before smiling at him. Him returning it seconds later.


He glanced over my shoulder to the guys who where still standing in the kitchen. Then he looked back at me and smirked. Next thing I knew his lips crashed onto mind with a lot of force. I kissed back and felt his tongue lick my bottom lip. I felt uncomfortable knowing that his friends were in the same room but what the hell. I usually break a few rules now and then and not give a fuck, so I let him. We fought for dominance but he clearly had the upper hand. But then again not even a flutter or firework, just what seemed like a small spark came from his touch.


"Ok That's Enough Lets Go!" Zac suddenly snapped, probably pissed that he sees Tyler all over me and not him. Good.


I pulled away and smiled at Tyler and he frowned. I pecked his lips on more time and said "Go. I have to go to school and my cereals is getting soggy". I teased.


"Are you trying to say school and your bowl of cereal are more important than me?" He joked.



"No I just feel as if your friends are getting a little impatient and..." I glance at the boys seeming them with the same expression just this time Mark and Zac had their arms around their chest. I looked back at Tyler and whispered into his ear "...It's a little uncomfortable making out in front of your friend" I looked back at the guys, as did Tyler. I let my arms drop from his neck but he kept his arms around my waist. I looked at him and he pecked my lips one more time before finally letting go. 


"Alright let's go" Tyler growled, walking out of the kitchen. I stood by the island counter and ate my cereal as I watched them all walk out. Once they were gone I finished my cereal, grabbed my bag and headed towards my car. I was thinking about Tyler the whole time I was driving to school. I was thinking of the kiss. He hasn't kissed me like that in months and were the hell where they going? 


I got to the school parking lot and walked to my locker. I grabbed my books and heard someone call my name from behind me. I turn around and smile at them.


"Hey Sky, I feel as if I haven't talked to you in forever. Even though we saw each other yesterday"


"I know right. Where's Bonnie?" I asked Jazz while looking down the hallway.


"Bonnie is here" Bonnie said from behind me.


"Hey" I smiled and hugged her then Jazz and Bonnie hugged. 


"We've been so distant all of a sudden. What on earth happened. We use to do everything together and talked everyday" Jazz gasped dramatically causing us all to laugh softly.


"I know right we should hang out today" Bonnie suggested.


"Well Tyler and his friends are going to be out tonight doing god knows what, so we can go to my place?" Jazz and Bonnie glanced at each other and squealed. 


"Sleepover!!!!" Bonnie and Jazz both yelled causing me to giggle. 'Gotta love these two' I thought.


"Ok I guess... Um I'll see you guys at lunch then?" I wondered.


"Yeah, come on Bonnie lets head to art class" Jazz turned to Bonnie linking arms.


"Ok, see you at lunch Sky" Bonnie said and hugged me. Then Jazz hugged me and left.


I sighed and turned towards my locker and nearly had a heart attack when I saw Justin standing there like a creep. But then I remembered his locker is right next to mine. 'Act cool and don't forget to talk to him about being friends' I reminded myself.


"Did I scare you babe?" Justin smirked..


"Yeah" I breathed out trying to catch my breath from my almost heart attack. 'Or I can just get a heart attack from his God like looks-' I thought before I was interrupted by that small voice in my head again. 'Don't even think about that'! 'You can't judge me it's true' I fought back. i mean those dark blue jeans hanging loosely around his hips, that tight black short and that snap-back that makes him look so much hotter- 'Skylar!' Focus.


"Oh..." He shrugged. 'And if I died he wouldn't care?' The voice in my head once again spoke. Would he? Yeah... I hope.


"What's that supposed to mean?" I asked with an eyebrow up.


"Nothing" He said and looked at my lips then my eyes before looking around to the hallways before turning back and leaning in


'Shit Skylar think fast!' I thought. 


"Oook" I dragged the 'o' while backing away from him. I closed my locker and began to walk to my first class.


"Wait... Hold on!" I heard Justin's locker shut before he stood next to me.


"What's up?"


He smirked at me, his eyes filled with amusement "You think you can get away that easily babe?"


"Is there a sign or law saying I can't head to class? Cause I know there's a rule about being late." I informed sarcastically, picking up my pace.


"Well not around me baby. You gotta earn it" he winked at me. God can he not?! I'm dyeing inside. I want to kiss the crap out of him, run my hands through his hair- 'Stop Skylar! Friends, friends, friends... f-r-i-e-n-d-s!' The voice reminded me. 'Right' I thought.


"Listen Justin. We have to talk. I like you and it scares me because i'm with Tyler and I don't want to hurt you or myself. And I barely know anything about you to just break off a two year relationship." I breathed out waiting for his reaction.


"Come one Sky. First of all I do like you, I like you a lot and second, it's obvious you don't like Tyler. I see the way you look at him. You look at him with no love in your eyes and when you look at me..." He paused and pushed me towards the nearest locker. Our bodies touching and our lips centimeters away from each other. my eyes widened and my breath hitched in my throat. I couldn't help but notice the strange tingling feeling I got when his skin made contact with my own. He then continued "...your whole face lights up. You look at me like you... Want me" he smirked.


"Yea right" I play it cool not letting my emotions show as I push him away and walking away towards my class. He was right, I did want him but also because he seems to actually care about me. He makes me feel safe around him but I know I still can't trust him. I have a lot on my mind.


"Don't be shy baby. If I was anyone else I would look at myself and want me too" he smiled down at me.


I couldn't help but roll my eyes at his statement.



We got to our class and sat down in our regular seat.


"So about our date..."


"Yea about that. We have to keep that between me and you..." I whispered to Justin. "oh and as friends" i added. 


"Oooook?" He said extending the 'o'. His eyes showed hurt, anger, and amusement all at the same time as I told him the last part. I don't blame him though. "Um so anyways. I was thinking  tonight at 8?"


"Tonight?" I thought. "Umm... Sure I guess. I don't think I'm doing anything" 'Oh Wait I Am! Crap! What about the sleep over. Maybe I can cancel on Jazz and Bonnie. They'd understand, right?' I thought.


"Great I'll pick you up at your pl--"


I cut Justin off "No... Um you can pick me up at the Cafe. I don't want anyone to think anything, especially Tyler" Just as friends. It shouldn't even be considered a date, just two friends hanging out.


"What is up with you and this Tyler guy" he growled.


"Well first off all, he's my boyfriend. Second, he can be a bit jealous at most times" that was a lie. He hates when I'm with other guys and of course I get a beating because of that and since we were so great this morning I don;t want to change that. "And third, I'm sneaking around with you, isn't that enough for you? After this I hope to still be friends...?"


He sighed before mumbling "I guess"


When class started we didn't talk at all. Me and Justin were both quiet. I have no idea what is going on in his head right now. 'Maybe it's the fact that you mentioned friends ship and nothing more' I though.


Once I heard the bell I went to my locker, got my stuff and headed to my next class.




Finally lunch, me and Justin haven't talked since he asked about Tyler and I mentioned us being friends. I just want to know what's bothering him. Maybe he feels the same way I feel about him... Maybe he feels those fireworks when we're around each other and doesn't like that fact that i'm with Tyler when I should actually be with Justin.  I shook the thought away before heading to my locker.


"Hey Sky" 


"Hey Jazz. Hey Bonnie" I turned around to see them walking towards me.


"So where do you guys want to go for lunch?" Bonnie asked.


"Um well you could drive of campus and get us some McD?" Jazz suggested while looking at me since i'm the one with the car. Yes we're all senior but Bonnie's parents don't like the way she acts so, no car for her and Jazz's parents lie to her and say they don't have enough money to by her a car. 


"Yeah ok,. I haven't eaten there in awhile anyways"


"Great lets go" Jazz said, pulling my arm. I shut my locker and was about to leave until I saw Justin walking down the hallway towards his locker. 'Oh I should cancel with Bonnie and Jazz but first I have to talk to Justin' I thought.


"Umm... Why don't you guys meet me at my car I... Have to do something real quick" I smiled at Jazz and Bonnie as they had a confused look on their face.


"Ok?" Jazz said.


"We'll meet you there. Don't be late. We don't have much time" Bonnie said.


"Ok. Ok." I said and watched them as they walked out through the doors and turned around to see Justin behind me with his arms crossed and a little smirk on his face. He smelled weird and looked kind of funny but whatever.


"What are you smiling at?" I ask him.


"Sorry for over hearing babe but... Did I hear you right when you told your friends you were going to... 'Do' something? Referring to me?" His smirk got even bigger. Is he bipolar? He wasn't talking to me about three hours ago and all of a suddenly  we're all buddy-buddies again.


"Ugh. That's not what I meant" I said while slapping his arms playfully. I couldn't stop the small laugh to escape my lip. My skin burned as I made contact with Justins'


"Ok. Calm down. Don't want you to waste all this feisty-ness in you right now... I wonna save that for tonight" he slurred then winked at me. 'The fauq' The voice in my head thought exactly what I was thinking.


"Suuuure?! But hey I wanted to ask you something" I change the subject.


"Alright. Ask me" 


"Ummm... Today in English you asked me about Tyler then you didn't talk to me after that?"


"Mmmhm... Yea. So?"



"Well what's up? I mean why. Did I do something wrong? Did I say something wrong? Is it because I said I just wanted to be friends?" It could be anything!


"I don't know if I should even bring it up" he mumbled.


"Just tell me" 



"Alright well" he paused and looked down to the ground then back up to my face and sighed. "Do you even like him?!!" He spat out randomly. Can anyone say mood swings!





"You heard me!!! Skylar do you even like Tyler?"



"Justin what type of ques-" but of course he had to cut me off.



"JUST ANSWER THE GOD DAMN QUESTION!!! Skylar I can treat you better than that dick. I know how you feel when your around him. HE TREATS YOU LIKE A DOLL SKYLAR, LIKE SHIT! You should be with someone who cares about you!" He yelled at me. I was lost for words. So this is about my relationship with Tyler?! What the actual fuck!



"You don't know how I feel. What is wrong with you!? Aren't you glad I'm at least letting you try to fight for m--" but before he I could even finish.


"I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT!!! Your worthless anyways." he spat and walked the other way. I stood their 'like what the hell?'. What just happened? He just called me worthless? How could I fall for such an asshole. I thought he was different. I don't know why but my eyes began to water, but I wouldn't let them fall.


I turned around still shocked when I heard my name "Skylar..." I turned around and saw Justin again. "...About our date tonight... Forget about it!" He spat then walked out the doors. What the hell. I felt a tear run down my cheek but quickly whipped it. 


Well I guess I won't cancel on Jazz and Bonnie.


I walked out to my car and saw the girls there.


"Gosh what took you so long lets go!!! I'm starving" Bonnie whined.


"Are you ok?" Jazz asked.


"Yea I'm fine. Lets go"


We got our lunch and ate it quickly before heading back to school. Neither one of them asked me what had happened to me and I was thankful for that.


Last period and I had it with Justin. I walked in and he wasn't there so I sat down and waited for him. I couldn't let things end like this with us. 'But he called you worthless!' The voice spoke up. 'I know but these feeling I have for him... I don't know, I just can't let him go that easily. Not when I know there's something strong between us' I thought.


The bell rang and it was time to go home. Justin didn't show up. What the hell happened. I'm lost and broken.


I went to my locker and met up with the girls, giving them the details for tonight. I din't feel like having a sleep over anymore but I guess it'll help me forget of this awful day.


Once we all knew what time to be at my place we all went home. I went home and the first thing I did was cry. I'm not sure why. I just felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest. I shouldn't feel this way about him. I don't know why but I need him. No matter how hard I try to convince myself that friendship is for the best of us, I can't, because deep down I know it's not...  



I got up from my spot by the front door and sprinted into to my room before crashing onto my bed and crying there. Until I fell asleep with the though of Justin calling me 'worthless'...
