Her Heart is a Rodeo

18 year old Amelia Rose Hopkins, is just a normal country girl chasing her dream to be a rodeo star. She is in love with a Team roper named Dallas Hoyt. Her 3 best friends are Jade Shilup , Lacy Hoyt(Dallas' younger sister), and Justin Lowell. 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. This is a country love story where friendships will be tested, relationships ruined, and the choice of one young girl. Can she chose the right one or will she regret her choice for the rest of her life? Her heart is definitely a rodeo worth winning for these two boys...


7. Chapter 6

I woke up with Dallas' arm wrapped around me in a tight but comfortable way. I reached to grab my phone and went on facebook. Lacy tagged me in something. Hm....What did that girl do now?? I clicked on the notification and it was a picture of Dallas and I sleeping.


"Shhhh don't yell im trying to sleep" Dallas said.

"Well to bad" I answered. "Look"

I showed him the picture.

"Aww we look so cute" He said.

"No" I said hitting him with a pillow.

"Yes" He said tickling me.

I honestly don't think I could ever have this sorta relationship with anyone else in life. I could be wrong but who knows right? Lacy came running in with Jade and the boys.

"Im guessing you've been on facebook??"

"yes I have"

"I think it was a cute picture" Dallas jumped in.

"See Dallas liked it"

I flung myself back on the bed heavily and sighed.

"I think its coming to that time of month for someone" Jade said.

I jumped up and chased her out of the bedroom. I didn't have time to put shoes on but I have really tough feet. Once I ran across glass from what I suspect was a broken beer bottle and I didn't even feel it., We ran outside and down the road until we got to the railroad tracks. She finally surrendered because she had no where to go because there was a train at the moment. We walked back to the house peacefully because we were both out of breath.

"Have you talked to Justin?" I asked her.

"No, he wont answer any calls or texts from anyone. His mom said he wont come out of his room."

I sighed and threw my head back looking at the sky. It was a clear day with only a few stray clouds, it was beautiful. I was still in my gray pajama A&F short shorts on. I had my loose purple tank top on. It felt like it was about 75 degrees Fahrenheit out. I laid down in the road and looked up at the sky. Jade joined me shortly after.

"Beautiful isn't it?" I asked.

"Yeah, it really is."

"I want to live up there, where there aren't any problems, no drama, and NO worries. Just happiness."

"But then everyone would be perfect. So there would be problems. No one would get along."

"Your very right. That's why I love you and Lacy because you always talk some sense into me. The only time you guys didn't give me a long lecture on something is...well Dallas. Why is that?"

"Because we saw how much you liked each other. We knew you had a 'thing' but wouldn't tell anyone. Lacy and I were actually the ones to tell yours guys' parents about getting you two together. Your dad was a bit skeptical on the situation but agreed. It was Zach, oh man I wish I could have video taped that. Your older brother is super protective. Like worse then your dad. Dallas' parents already knew you guys were aiming towards more then friends."

"You guys are terrible" I laughed.

"Amelia!!!! Jade!!!! Where are you guys?!?!" I heard Lacy yell.

"In the road!!!!" I yelled back.

They came walking up to us. They just stood there and looked at us for a second.

"What are you guys doing?" Wyatt asked.

"Relaxing" Jade answered.

"In the middle of the road?" Dallas questioned.

"Yupp. Got a problem?"

"yupp" He said.

"Oh really? Whatcha gonna do about it?"

Dallas scooped me up and placed me on my feet, I put up a fight of course. Dude, the dirt road is actually pretty comfy. I just let my legs go limp and fell back to the ground. I made sure I didn't hurt myself though.

"Come on Lia, get up. You promised you would play Call of Duty 2 with us." He begged.

"Um...when did I agree to that?" I asked confused.

"This morning when you were half asleep"

"That's mean."

"C'mon we really need you"

"Why? Who are we playing?"

"Well since we have 3 Xbox's we are all playing, but we invited your brothers, Justin, Taco, and Ashley's brothers"

"Im in!! We are gonna kick some ass today!!"

Taco is our friend who lives in Montana, we have never met him but he is HILARIOUS!! We met him over the Xbox last year. They want me to play because I have 'fingers that operate like a man' as Taco says. I grew up playing with tons of guys and my brother is badass at all Call of Duty's. We are all good but everyone says that Zach and I are the best. I disagree but yeah.

We walked back into the house and all went to our assigned Xbox's. Dallas and I went to his room, Lacy and Charlie went to Lacy's room, and Jade and Wyatt went to the downstairs living room. We all had headsets. We place them in the middle of us and turn it up so we can both hear and both speak.

We put the game in and Dallas and I were the hosts of the game. I created my class and so did Dallas. We made the match private so only people we invite can play. Once everyone was on we sent out invites, and also sent out party invites so we could talk to each other.

(Im warning you now, when I play Xbox I cuss and so do my friends. I actually did say theses things when I played. I do play with a guy named Taco. We stayed up until 5 am playing with our friends one time, so this chapter is based off a real game starting now. P.S. I do kick ass at this game thanks to my lil' bro.)

"Hey is man fingers playing?" Taco asked.

"Yes Taco, im playing"

"Oh shit, this game just got real" He responded,

I heard a lot of laughter from other players. I could also hear Ashley's laugh so I guess she is watching her brother.

"Fear the blonde Taco, fear the blonde"

The clock was counting down from 10 until the game started. I choose my gun and the clock struck 0. We were playing Team Death match. It was Dallas, Justin, Charlie, Wyatt, John(Little brother), and Taco against Jade, Lacy, Zach, Tyler(Ashley's bro), and me. I know the teams are unfair but who cares.

I jumped out from behind a building and shot someone square in the head.

"Shit" I heard Charlie say.

The boys were hiding in am upstairs room in some building. I was searching for them when Taco shot me.

"Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck a duck!!" I said.

"I got her!!" Taco screamed.

"Just plain luck" I answered.

We were winning by 28 points. I was jumping around because that's just what I do. The score was 52-80 and it was changing fast.

"Im scared, im scared, im sleeping with my mommy tonight" Taco said.

"I told you to fear the blonde"

"Hey Lia come to our secret spot" I heard Jade say.

"Alright on my way, I will be sure to kill anything that moves so they don't know our location"

I covered in front of the TV so Dallas couldn't see where I was heading and I arrived at our hideout. It was behind a building in a corner. Its sorta like and alley way but its really narrow. Everyone knows its here but we change our 'secret spot' every game. I got a group text from Jade asking if anyone knew where there hideout was and if so leave and the rest of us will follow. Zach left and of course we followed. He led us to a ladder on the side of a building that led to a roof. I threw a grenade up on top of the roof and heard a lot of cuss words over the headset. Dallas also shoved me a little.

The game ended with us winning of course because we are just cool like that. The boys as always said we cheated. I don't understand how having pure skill is cheating but boys will be boys. Jade and I went home around 4:00 because our parents said we needed to be home. When I got there Zach gave me a high five and said "I taught you well little sis". John didn't care that they lost, he just liked playing for fun.

I went up to my room and put in the movie P.S. I Love You. I love any person with an Irish accent. They are just to die for. Especially Niall Horan, that man is like a sex god I swear. I was halfway through the movie when my phone started ringing. I looked at the caller I.D. and it said Justin. I debated for about 2 seconds before answering the phone.

A-Hey Justin whats up??

J-Nothing...What about you??

A-Watching P.S. I Love You.



J-Hey I was wondering if we could meet somewhere.

A-Sure where?

J-Um...how about the fairgrounds? My little sister is competing today so im stuck here.

A-Yeah i'll see you there.

J-Alright see you in a few.

A-Yupp bye


I love watching Hannah compete. She is the rodeo princess this year. Ashley is the rodeo queen. Ew. Anyway, hopefully this wont be awkward. The last time I saw Justin is when Dallas almost broke his face.
