My name is Skyler. I'm 18 years old and it's Christmas Eve. My parents are gone-again. While I'm walking through the park, I run into the guy that turns my whole life upside down- and it's because of one kiss.

5. chapter 5

When Louis and I got to my grandma's house, Emily and grandma were taking the tree down like they usually do on Christmas afternoon.

"Merry Christmas grandma!" I said cheerfully.

"Merry Christmas sweetheart!" Said my grandma. I could tell that her attention wasn't on me, as she was staring at Louis.

"Oh! Grandma, this is my boyfriend, Louis. Louis this is my Grandma Ellie!"

"Nice to meet you!" Louis said. He put his hand out to shake her hand, but she pulled him into a big hug with strength I've only seen on a matter of occasions.

"Looks like your just in time to help us take down the tree" Emily said. I could tell by the way she said that that she was a little annoyed by the fact that she has to take down the tree rather than ripping all of her stuff out of the boxes.

"Skyler, could you get the star for me, please?"

"Sure, let me get a chair" I said.

"Oh don't worry about it, love, I'll get it" Louis said.

"Thanks, but be careful! That stars' been in our family for over fifty years!" I said.

"Don't worry, love, I'll be careful." Louis reached up to get the star, but grandma's dog Sparky, whose quite big for his age, jumped on Louis's leg and Louis fell into the tree! The star shattered into what looked like a million pieces.

"Oh. My. God." I said. I kneeled down next Louis and helped him up. He had a lot of scratches on his face and the cut just above his eyebrow was bleeding. "Louis, are you okay?!"

"I'm find, love" he faintly said.

"Let's get you cleaned up" grandma was in tears because of the star. Louis went to the bathroom to wash his face."grandma, are you okay?"

"You're boyfriend isn't making a very good first impression" she said coldly. I could feel tears welling up in my eyes and all of that sadness was replaced with anger.

"Grandma this wasn't his fault! It was that damn dogs fault!" I was nearly screaming now. Louis was coming out of the bathroom now. I really hoping he didn't hear my little outburst.

"All I know is is that your was taking the star off and now it's broken!" She was speaking as loud and as angry as she could now.

"Grandma do you see his face?! This wasn't his fault! He has cuts all over his face and all you care about is that damn star!" I continued to scream at her. Louis grabbed my shoulders and attempted to calm me down. He hugged me and started to sing to me in a hushed tone as he knows that I love the way he sings an I started to calm down.

"You okay?" He asks me. I nodded my head and I lead him into the room that my grandma has for my sister and I whenever we sleepover."Skyler, I'm so sorry that I ruined your grandma's tree and star-" I cut him off.

"Louis, it's not your fault okay?" I said."let's go. I feel like we're not welcome here right now" I said.

"Okay. I'll grab my keys okay?" I nodded my head and walked out of the room.

"We're gonna go. We're gonna see if mom and dad are home" and we were out of the house as soon as possible.
