Little does Amelia know, Justin has been in love with her for as long as he can remember and Jade and Lacy know. With a Team Roper and a Bull rider competing for her heart, can she choose between the man she loves and her best friend who she might secretly have feelings for, or break both of there hearts and choose neither.

6. Chapter 5

I decided I should probably work things out with Dallas. I was really scared though. What if things will never be the same between us? What if he ends up falling for someone else because of this? What if we drift apart? How can him seeing me kiss one boy cause all the 'what ifs'?

We were on our way to Dallas' right now and I was super nervous. He said when we get there that we can go on a ride and talk about it. The radio was on and everyone was silent but I was singing along. Jade and Lacy would jump in every now and then. The song Carolina by Parmalee was on. I love this song soooooooo much.

Jade muted the radio and asked "Lia are you still going to take the scholarship to that collage up in Montana?"

"Yeah I think so, I don't even want to take a gap year"

"Well we will miss you, I hope you know that"

"I will miss you guys to but I need to move on with life. I feel like if I don't start now then I will be to old to follow my dreams after collage"

"Only you would say that miss I want to be young forever"

"Whatever" I answered sarcastically.

We pulled up to Dallas' and he already had 2 horses saddles up for us. He was sitting on the tailgate of his truck. I cant even explain how nervous I am. What if he wants to break up? There I go with the 'what ifs' again. No everything is going to be fine.

We got out of the truck and Charlie and Wyatt came out of the house. I guess that's why Jade and Lacy were so eager to come. Oh and turns out Wyatt does like Lacy. They gave us girls hugs. and both of them whispered to me that everything was going to be okay.

They walked back into the house leaving me and Dallas alone.

"Well I got Blaze ready for you" Dallas said breaking the ice.

"Thanks" I said checking the cinch and climbing on.

We rode in silence until we got to the beginning of the trail.

"So can you please explain to me why Justin kissed you? I mean I have his side of the story but I want yours to"

"Well...I don't exactly know. Like he wasn't acting normal so I pulled him out to the trailer to get him to talk but he kissed me instead."

"Well did you kiss back?"

I paused before I answered "Yes"

"Do you want to be with him?"

"No. Dallas I love you and only you"

"Good, lets keep It that way shall we?"


We came to the lake that we grew up swimming in. I have problems swimming in public pools or ones with chlorine in them. I love swimming in rivers and lakes. I know its dangerous but we only swim in parts that we know for sure are safe.

Dallas took my hand and took us to the rock that is in between 2 tall maple trees. This is the rock where we had our first kiss. I can remember that day like it was yesterday.


Dallas invited me to go to the lake today with him, Charlie, Wyatt, Lacy, and Jade. Obviously I couldn't resist. Its like 10000000000 degrees outside today. I put on my purple, light blue, and pink tie die bikini on and slipped some cut off shorts over. I told my dad I was heading out. Zach decided to come to. He was a senior at the time. Dallas pulled up with his pickup. I hopped in the truck while everyone else climbed into the back of the truck. We drove to the lake and we all ran into the lake. We swam for a little while, playing games and dunking each other. We were all having a good time. Dallas grabbed my hand and told me to follow him. It is quite a hike to the rock because its up a little hill over looking the lake. When we got up there I could see what seemed like the whole entire world. Its amazing. I could see the lake, one of the Mountain ranges(I can never tell which mountains are which), and you could see his house from here.

"Oh my gosh Dallas this is beautiful. How did you find it?"

"I come up here when things get tough, when I need some peace and quiet, or just want to enjoy the view. Its my secret spot"

"Well if its your secret spot why did you show it to me?" I asked turning to face him

"Because one day I want everything thats mine to be yours."

He stepped closer and leaned in to kiss me. I didn't object and I leaned in to. Our lips met and a war went off in my stomach. Its like WW III in there.  We pulled apart and I was amazed.

"Woah" I said.

He gave a light laugh before kissing me one last time. We sat on the rock until everyone noticed we were missing. I was smiling so much my face hurt. I felt like I was on top of the world. It is the most amazing feeling ever.

~End of Flashback~

"Why did you take me here?" I asked.

"Because I come here when things get tough, do you remember when I told you that?"

"Yes, just like it was yesterday"

"Well we can talk over everything up here. If that's okay with you?"

"I would rather talk about it up here then anywhere else."

"Well then im going to just get straight to the point. Do you have feelings for Justin?"

"Honestly, I have always had feelings for him. But I also love you. I may have small feelings for him but I don't think they can ever overpower what I feel for you."

"Hopefully your right. I love you more then I love my cowboy hat. You better feel pretty special" He said jokingly.

That's what I love about Dallas. He makes the hard times easier and the saddest times happier.

"Okay then" I said joking around with him.

"Are you taking that scholarship in the fall up in Montana?"

"Yeah I need to get out of this town and move on with life. I cant stay cooped up here for my whole life."

"Well will I be part of your life?"

"If you want to be you can"

"Can you promise me that if I want to be part of your future you ill let me? I don't care if its just as a friend. I need you Amelia"

"No, I cant promise im sorry. But I can promise right now."


We walked back to the horses and rode home. The girls were passed out in the living room with Charlie and Wyatt. I decided just to stay the night. I slept in Dallas' room but we didn't do anything I swear. We watched a movie and fell asleep. I really hope going to collage in Montana doesn't change everything. Change is good though right? But it can also be bad though.

Only God knows what my future holds. So please God I pray to you, let it be a happy one...
