5. Chapter 4

Dallas picked up a stick on his way over to us, and was walking at a really fast pace. There is no way im going to let them fight.

I ran up to Dallas yelling "Hey!! Hey!! Hey!! Dallas stop!!"

"Why should I listen to some slut like you huh? Kissing one of my best friends right after I give you a promise ring!!"

I could see immediately after he said that he regretted it but I was still shocked. He did have the right to say those things though. I instantly burst into tears and ran away.

"Amelia!! I didn't mean it Lia!! Please come back!!" I heard him yelling.

I ran around the stables and into my secret spot. It is in between two stalls and down some steps. The owner gave me a key because I can usually be found down here by the door so she just gave me a key. I took the key out of its hiding spot and unlocked the door. I went inside and it was just like I remember it. It had my bean bag chair, my old laptop, chargers for my phone, and laptop and my mini fridge. She practically gave the room to me because they only use it for storage.

I re-locked the door and grabbed my favorite kind of energy drink out of my mini fridge. I opened my laptop and burst into a new set of tears. My background was a picture of Dallas and I sitting on our horses and leaning into kiss each other. We were both 16 at the time. It was the perfect picture and I love that picture to death. I cant believe Dallas would say something like that. I wonder if Justin is okay? Did they really fight? I hope not. Oh man this is all my fault.I heard some banging on the door.

I have only taken Lacy and Jade down here so it must be them.

"Lia open up!! I know your in there!!" It was Jade.

I got up and opened the door. Jade and Lacy were standing there.

"Are you alone?"

"Yes" They both answered.

I let them inside and told them the whole story. When I stopped we were all crying together.

"How could he say that?" Jade asked.

"I don't know, I guess I did give him a reason"

"No, that's not good enough. Dallas NEVER should have said that, I don't care what you did or Justin in this case. A guy who truly loves you wouldn't have called you a slut" Lacy said.

"But he was mad, I mean when I get mad I have no filter on my mouth so im sure it was just the anger talking" I said

"Have you ever heard the saying "The only people who tell the truth are kids, drunks, and those who are angry?" Jade asked

"Well yeah but he couldn't possibly think im a slut could he?"

"No, I don't think he does but he does need to do some major apologizing" Lacy said.

"Well I don't want to talk to him right now so can we like sneak out of here and go to your house Jade?" I asked.

"Yeah, we can have one of our big sleepovers with ice cream, candy, movies, and im sure we can take a midnight ride to since its summer." She answered.

"Okay I will text my mom and tell her, but I will make sure she doesn't tell Dallas where im going because he knows I will be with you" Lacy said gesturing to me.

"Yeah I will text my dad and make sure he doesn't say anything"

We all texted our parents and they said yes to the sleepover and agreed to our secrecy form Dallas. We made sure the coast was clear and made a mad dash for the truck. We did grab my stuff rom Dallas' truck and Duke and Gator. We threw them in the trailer with Jade and Lacy's horses. Lacy will keep her horses at Jades tonight just like me.

I don't think Dallas had a clue we left. I do have 2 missed calls and 6 text messages form him. They all say something along the lines of im sorry, where are you, please come back, im trying to find you and apologize, blah blah blah blah. No one cares. That was until I got the text.

From Dallas <3

"Im sorry Amelia, I really am. I know I should have thought before I ran my mouth. I don't think your a slut and I know you didn't intentionally mean to kiss Justin. I talked to him and we didn't fight. I understand where he is coming from and why he loves you. Although I wish it was a different girl and not mine, we are going to work it out. Im not going to bash his face in(Doesn't mean it don't want to). I love you and please come back to me. I will give you as much time as you need. I hope that this isn't the end of us. Keep the ring and please please PLEASE don't give it back to me. Keep it, it will cause me to much pain to have you give it back to me. I saw you took Gator and Duke plus your stuff out of the truck. That's fine, I hope you will talk to me in the morning. I love you forever and always, Goodnight :)"

I showed the text to Lacy and Jade. I was crying again because I don't want this to be the end of us either. Im sure it wont be but still what if it is? What if this is only the first fight we end up getting into more intense fights? Oh man how much I  wish to 6 again running around and the only boy trouble I had was them using me as a roping dummy.

We got to Jades house and put the horses out in the pasture with the rest of them. Her parents greeted us and her mom was dying to look at my ring. She hugged me and told me that everything will work out. So she obviously knew about the fight then. We took some of Jades pajamas and got comfortable in the downstairs living room. We planned on watching 4 movies. Ted, Were the Millers, Grown Ups, and Grown Ups 2. We were in a comedy mood.

Her mom brought down our stash of candy and gave us each a carton of our own ice cream. She knows us so well. She knows we cant share ice cream and we all have our own kinds or else we will complain that we didn't get our favorite and someone else did. Mine is peanut butter flavored ice cream with mini reeces, actual peanut butter in it(Well the stuff the out in ice cream, im sure its not real peanut butter), and chucks of chocolate in it. I hate nuts in my ice cream its gross. Jades it mint oreo, and Lacy likes chocolate with brownie chunks in it.

We finished our ice cream by the time that Grown Ups was starting. We pulled out the candy and just started eating it. I fell asleep before the movie was over, and im sure the other to weren't to long after me.


I woke up to the bright living room. The sin was shining through the curtains. Jade was gone but Lacy was still here. I grabbed my phone and I had. 18 missed calls from Justin, Dallas, Charlie, and Wyatt, and 30 text messages from the same boys. They all must be trying to get a hold of us because Jade and Lacy's phones had tons of missed calls and texts to. I guess this mean I have to talk to Dallas....Great.
