13. Chapter 12

*6:30 PM*
Justin and I walked down the street towards a flower stand. He grabbed a white rose and a card, paying for it. He wrote something on the card, then put it a string through the top of it, tying it to the stem.

Me: Is that for your secret girlfriend I don't know about?

As we walked away from the stand, he shook his head, handing the rose to me.

Justin: It's for you.

I hesitated before taking the rose from his hand and looking at the card.

You make me the happiest kid alive. Ever since I met you, you've made me happy. I just wish we could be more than just friends. Well, not now, since Scooter doesn't understand anything. Anyways, just keep smiling and never believe the lies anyone says about you. Even though you're technically not my girl, it seems like you are. I care you so much. I'd do anything for you.

I looked at Justin, tears on the rims of my eyes.

Me: Did you mean all of that?
Justin: Of course I did.

I embraced him in a hug.

Me: You always know how to make my day.

We broke the hug.

Justin: Let's head back before my mom wonders where we are.

I nodded in agreement as we headed back to his grandparents' house.

Pattie: Where have you two been?

We just walked in the house and his mom's already on our backs.

Justin: I was showing her a few places.
Pattie: I thought you were doing that tomorrow.
Justin: I'm showing her the Avon Theatre tomorrow, since she said she wanted to wait on it.

Pattie noticed the rose in my hand, looking at me.

Pattie: Dawn, can we talk? Alone?

I looked up at Justin.

Justin: Meet me upstairs?

I nodded. He smiled, kissing my cheek. I put my hand there, feeling my face grow hot as I looked at him. He was halfway up the stairs when I looked at him, then he disappeared. I shook my head as my eyes landed on the floor.

?: You like him, don't you?

I looked up at Pattie.

Me: Um...
Pattie: You like him, don't you?

I sighed, leaning against the wall. I looked at the rose, playing with the petals.

Me: Honestly, I'm still on the edge of if I like him or if I'm in love with him.
Pattie: Well, whatever your heart says, go with it.

I nodded.

Me: My mom says that a lot.
Pattie: Speaking of your mom, she called, saying she'll be here tomorrow.

I smiled.

Me: It feels like I haven't seen her in forever.
Pattie: I know. She suggested you call her before you go to bed.
 Me: Don't I always?

She chuckled lightly.

Pattie: Well, dinner's almost ready, so I suggest you tell Justin.
Me: I will.

I noticed her gaze was on the rose in my hand.

Pattie: Did Justin give that to you?
Me: Yeah, why?
Pattie: I'll put it in some water.

I nodded and handed it to her. She took it from my hand, nodding towards the stairs.

Pattie: Go see Justin. He's probably wondering where you are.
Me: Yeah.

I headed up the stairs. 

Pattie: Oh, and Dawn?

I looked at her.

Pattie: Don't be afraid to tell him how you feel.

I nodded, walking up the stairs.

Justin's POV

I'm trying to get one chord, but I can't get it. It's been driving me crazy ever since I wrote the song.

?: Hey.

I looked up from my guitar, seeing Dawn in the doorway.

Me: Hey.
Dawn: Your mom wanted me to tell you dinner's almost ready.

I nodded.

Me: Thanks. Can you help me?

She closed the door behind her, leaning on it.

Dawn: What do you need help with?
Me: The chord A#.

She pushed herself off the door and walked over to me. She sat behind me, placing my fingers on the strings.

Dawn: Try it.

I strummed the guitar once. It sounded right, but I wasn't sure.

Dawn: Is it tuned?
Me: I just tuned it this morning.

She moved my fingers again.

Dawn: Try it now.

I strummed again. Perfect.

Me: Thanks.
Dawn: No problem.

She got up from behind me and sat next to me on the bed.

Dawn: Is it for another song you're writing?
Me: Yeah.
Dawn: No wonder.

I put my guitar down, taking the band aids off my fingers.

Dawn: Why do you put band aids on your fingers when you're not even bleeding?
Me: It's to avoid my fingers from bleeding if I press too hard on the strings.
Dawn: Oh. I never thought of that.
Me: So you just let your fingers bleed?
Dawn: They don't bleed that easily. Plus, I deal with the pain. I'm not that kind of girl who cries every time I feel a little bit of pain.
Me: Cause girls like you don't give up.

She stood up, looking down at me.

Dawn: What do you mean 'girls like me'?

I held my hands up in surrender.

Me: I meant girls who just deal with the pain and keep going.

She lowered her head.

Dawn: Oh.

She rubbed her arm nervously.

Me: So...about that song a few weeks back.

She looked at me.

Dawn: What about it?
Me: You need someone to sing it with?
Dawn: It would help.
Me: I could sing it with you.

She walked over to her guitar, grabbing it along with her notebook. She walked back over to o me, sitting on the bed. She opened the notebook, probably to be he song lyrics. She handed the notebook to me as she rested the guitar on her lap.

Dawn: I already memorized this song. The guy part is the second verse, the chorus the second time, the bridge along with me, and the chorus with me.

I nodded as she began to play.

Normal POV

When I finished playing the intro, I started singing.

Hello, I know it's been a while, I wonder where you are and if you think of me
Sometimes cause you're always on my mind, you know I had it rough, tryin' to forget you but
The more that I look around, the more I realize you're all I'm looking for

What makes you so beautiful is you don't know how beautiful you are to me
You're not tryna be perfect, nobody's perfect, but you are to me
It's how you take my breath away, feel the words that I don't say
I wish somehow I could say them now, oh, I could say them now, yeah

I nodded at him to start singing.

Just friends, the beginning or the end, how do we make sense when we're on our own
It's like you're the other half of me, I feel incomplete, should have known
Nothing in the world compares to the feelings that we share, so not fair

What makes you so beautiful is you don't know how beautiful you are to me
You're not tryna be perfect, nobody's perfect, but you are to me
You try to take my breath away, feel the words that I don't say
I wish somehow I could say them now, oh

Then I joined in, just a key or two higher.

It's not you, blame it all on me, I was running from myself
Cause I couldn't tell how deep that we, we were gonna be
I was scared it's destiny, but it hurts like hell, hope it's not too late, just a twist of fate, yeah

What makes you so beautiful is you don't know how beautiful you are to me
You're not tryna be perfect, nobody's perfect, but you are to me
It's how you take my breath away, feel the words that I don't say
I wish somehow I could say them now, oh, I could say them now, mmm

We stopped singing and looked at each other.

Me: Thanks.

I put my guitar down as he handed me my notebook.

Justin: Anything for a friend.

I heard a knock on the door. I'm guessing Justin heard it, too, because we both looked at the door as it opened, revealing his mom.

Pattie: Dinner's ready.

We got up from the bed, following her out the room.
