Shawn: Whats up with that dude that stormed out of here?
Me: Um that is my now ex-boyfriend.
Shawn: Oh...he took it well
Me: Better than I thought
Shawn: What happened to your uh face?
Shawn: oh I didn't mean it like that, you just look like someone beat you.
Me: Nathan did.
Shawn: Oh my gosh I am so sorry I shouldn't have joked about that.
Me: Shawn it's fine.
Shawn: So where is Dylan? Last time I saw you guys you were inseparable.
Me: When did you see us last?
Shawn: About a month ago at the mall. I wasn't sure it was you and as you know Dylan doesn't exactly like me very much so I didn't come over and say hi.
Me: He went to film a movie in California and came back with his slutty girlfriend Ashley and when he saw my bruises he took me to the emergency room. Then we got in a fight because he wouldn't come with me when I wanted to break up with Nathan. I needed his support but he was too worried about going home and screwing Ashley.
Shawn: Wow. If we were still talking I would have came with you in a heart beat.
Me: I wish I could believe that.
Shawn: What do you mean?
Me: Dylan my rock and my best friend and the one I trusted with my life doesn't even care about me. How am I supposed to believe you?
Shawn: Meet me at the PTF office building on 2nd avenue at 5 and I will prove you can trust me.
Me: What do I wear?
Shawn: Wear something you would wear around the house.
Me: ok Can I get that hug now?
He pulled me into a hug and he smelled so good!
He released and said "I'm glad we talked today. :) see you at five"
I started to leave and he ran up to me.
Shawn: Hey can I have your number?
Me: yeah here. See you at five.
With that I walked out the door.
I walked home excited to see what Shawn had planned. I got out my phone dialing Dylan's number excited to tell him that I saw Shawn and realized we were fighting so I stuffed my phone back in my pocket.
It was 4:30 when I got home and I wasn't sure if I should eat something because all Shawn said was to dress casual and meet him at the PTF.
I texted him.
Me: Hey should I eat before I come?
Shawn: um No cant wait for you to see your surprise ;)
Me: I can't wait either! :)
I put on a pair of jeans and a black pink Floyd t-shirt.
I then grabbed my keys and my phone and left.
I got to the PTF and saw Shawn's dad standing there. He told me to walk in, go to the elevator and hit the "top floor" button.
I wonder why the top floor.
I got to the top and saw a bunch of guys standing at the edge of the building with a lot of harnesses and ropes.
I started to turn around. There was no way I was bungee jumping off of a skyscraper! I turned around and bumped into Shawn.
Shawn: OH no you aren't backing out on me.
Me: No you don't get it I'm terrified of heights.
Shawn: I know but I want your trust so when you come out of this alive you can trust me. As long as I am around nothing will happen to you.
Me: I can't do this!
Shawn: I am going to do it with you.
Me: You have done this before?
Shawn: I do this as a second job.
Me: you jump off of buildings?
Shawn: haha no I test bungee jumping gear.
Me: So you're making me test gear that could potentially be faulty and kill me?
Shawn: No I tested this stuff already. It's safe. Don't worry I will do it with you and we will be strapped together, so if the harness breaks we will die together.
Me: Not funny!
Shawn: Come on.
A bunch of dudes started strapping stuff on me and before I could get a protest Shawn had my hand and we were hooked together standing at the edge of a skyscraper waiting to plunge to our death.
I was shaking and not sure if you was even going to have to jump I was just going to fall.
Shawn: I am going to count to three ad we will jump. Ok?
Me: I don't know if....
Shawn: One Two Three!
Shawn pulled me off the building and we were falling together. It was such a cool feeling! I felt like I was flying. Out of the corner of my eye I could see him smiling at me.
We finally got to the ground and I was relieved but also sad that it was over.
Shawn: So Stella, trust me?
Me: I didn't die so you moved up in my level of trust.
Shawn: I promise even if you are falling I will be there with you every step of the way.
Shawn: ha-ha you haven changed a bit. Taco bell?
