May 19, 2012
This week went by really fast. First, we're lying on the couch cuddling and now I'm up here with the class of 2012 in my maroon cap and gown, watching Justin play on his phone. It was obvious he was bored because the principal was going on and on about the school year and how fast it went. I could even see a few people sleeping.
Principal: Now, please welcome our valedictorian Dawn Johnson.
The audience clapped as I stood up from my seat. When I got to the podium, I took a deep breath.
Me: Friends, family, teachers and staff. I present to you the class of 2012. Through this school year, we all have experienced things. Love, jealousy, trust, and even people coming back.
I looked at Justin.
Me: Out of all these people up here with me, I've experienced all of these. From falling in love for the very first time to someone from the past returning. But all of us have grown up. The little girl or boy you grew up with is gone. We're young men and women, moving on. We still make mistakes yes, but we'll never forget who raised us. When they weren't there, our teachers were there to keep an eye on us and inform them of our grades and if we were in trouble. I know my mom must have hated it when she had to pick me up weekly because of detention.
Some people chuckled, making me smile.
Me: I thank everyone who has helped us along the way. I thank the people who have supported us along the way. Parents, friends, staff and teachers. But most of all, I would like to thank the boy I love most who has kept my spirits up ever since we met. I don't want to say his name cause I don't want girls trying to tear him limb from limb.
Me: But again, I thank everyone for supporting us. Thank you.
They all clapped as I sat back down.
I ran into his arms, my diploma in my hand.
Justin: I loved your speech, babe.
Kissing my forehead, he let me go. My mom embraced me in a tight hug.
Mom: My baby finally graduated.
I chuckled, pulling away.
Mom: I have to go to work now, so I'll let you and Justin have time together.
I smiled as she turned and walked away. I looked at Justin.
Justin: Can I see your dress?
Justin: Cause you wouldn't show it to me before.
Me: Ugh, fine.
He smiled as I took off my gown. I held it in my arms as I straightened out my dress. He smiled, pulling me close.
Justin: You're so beautiful.
Me: You say that to me everyday.
Justin: Cause it's the truth.
I smiled, resting my hands on his chest.
?: Okay, love birds, you're in public.
I spun around, seeing my friend standing there. Justin wrapped his arms around my waist.
He planted gentle kisses down my neck, tickling me. I chuckled, pushing him gently.
Me: Justin, stop.
He kissed my cheek, smiling.
Me: Go wait in the car.
Me: Because you're being so clingy again.
Justin: No I'm not.
Me: Yes you are. Now go wait so I can talk to my friends.
How spun me around, my hands on his shoulders.
Me: Justin, I'm serious.
Justin: One kiss.
Mia: Give him a kiss already so he can leave.
Me: Ugh, fine.
I wrapped my arms around his neck and brought my lips to his. He pulled me closer to him, kissing me back. He bit my bottom lip, but I smirked, pulling away. He pouted.
Me: You'll get another one later. Now go.
He kissed my cheek before walking away.
Mia: Finally he's gone.
Me: Calm your biscuits.
I sat down in my car, running my fingers through my hair. We've been together for five months and we haven't gone out yet. I didn't tell her, but I'm planning on taking her to lunch. She told me she loved sushi, so we're going to a Japanese restaurant. I sighed, smiling to myself. I love her so much. She just makes me so happy. I fall deeper and deeper in love with her every day. My phone rang, taking me out of my thoughts. I took my phone out of my pocket and looked at it. Selena's name popped up, making me roll my eyes. I answered it, putting my phone to my ear.
Me: What, Selena? What do you want?
Me: Too bad. I'm with Dawn now and you'll just have to live with it.
Selena: I want you back, Justin.
Me: You shouldn't have broken up with me in the first place.
I hung up on her, deleting her number from my contacts. I only kept her number because I kept forgetting to erase it before. Just as I put my phone in my pocket, the passenger side door opened. I looked, seeing Dawn getting in the car. She closed the door, throwing her cap, gown and diploma in the backseat.
Me: You ready?
I started the car, shifting gears.
I laughed as Justin threw me down on the bed, hovering over me. I hit his arm, having him fall on me. I tried pushing him off.
Me: Justin, get off of me.
He got off, sitting beside me. He pulled me into his lap, running his fingers through my hair.
Justin: I love you, baby.
I caressed his jaw with my hand.
Me: I love you more.
I leaned up, kissing his lips. He smiled as I pulled away. I sat up in his lap, crossing my legs.
Me: Thanks for taking me out.
Justin: It was a make up for our date.
Me: You didn't have to.
Justin: I wanted to, though.
I crawled behind him, lying down.
Me: We don't always have to go out on the fifteenth of every month, you know.
Justin: I know, but it's a reminder for how long we've been together.
I leaned on my forearm as he laid back, facing me.
Me: What, you don't think I'd remember?
Justin: You never know. Either one of us could forget.
He propped himself up on his forearm, wrapping an arm around my waist. He pulled me closer to him, making me chuckle. I bit my lip, looking at him as his hand wet to my inner thigh, sending chills up my spine. He gently pulled my leg over his. He smiled at me, leaning in to kiss me. When his lips met mine, I smiled, my hand caressing his cheek. I rolled on top of him, neither of us breaking the kiss. I straddled him, pulling away. He sat up a little, his back leaning on the headboard. I took the hem of his shirt in my hands, slowly pulling it over his head. He threw it on the floor, revealing his toned upper body. He leaned up, taking my bottom lip in his teeth. I smirked, resting my hands on his abdomen as I pressed my lips to his. His hands rested on my inner thighs pulling me closer to him. My lips trailed his jawline towards his neck, planting gentle kisses under his ear. He flipped us over, hovering over me. He smiled,m leaning. Just as his lips brushed against mine, his phone rang. We both groaned as he rolled off of me. I sat up, running my fingers through my hair as he took the call.
Justin: Hello?...Hey, Scooter...I was making out with my girlfriend until you interrupted us...Yeah, what about her?...Really?...Wait, what about...Why not?...She won't distract me...Yeah, and? We just...Ugh, fine. When do we leave?...Why so soon?...*sigh*...Okay...Yeah...Bye.
He hung up, tossing his phone on my bed. He put his shirt back on, sitting on the edge of my bed. I crawled towards him, sitting on my knees as I caressed the back of his neck with my hand.
Me: What's wrong, baby?
I kissed his cheek as he let out a sigh.
Justin: I have to leave tonight to go on my promo tour.
I wrapped my arms around his torso, kissing his neck.
Me: Why aren't you excited?
Justin: Because you're not coming with me.
My heart fell into my stomach. I pulled away from him as he stood up.
Justin: Scooter won't let you come along because he doesn't want my fans to try and cause problems like it did with Selena. Plus, Avalanna's parents already accepted the offer in letting her come with me.
I lowered my head, tears filling my eyes.
Me: F-for how long?
Justin: A month.
My heart just shattered. The tears a were now falling, rolling down my cheeks.
He wrapped his arms around me, my head resting on his chest. The tears silently fell onto his shirt.
Justin: It's only a month.
I looked up at him.
Me: Easy for you to say. You're used to it. Me? I have to sit here's not having the ability to hug you tight, listen to you tell me how beautiful I am, and kiss your lips.
I rested my hand on his cheek.
Me: I don't want you to go.
Justin: But I have to.
I sighed, looking down as I removed my hands from his body. The tears were coming again. He brought me into a hug. We sat there in silence, not letting one another go.
I let go of him, looking into his eyes.
Me: I'll miss you.
Justin: Same here, baby.
He took something out of his backpack. He held a CD in his hand, holding it out in front of me.
Justin: If you ever miss me, just listen to track twelve. You never know. I could be listening to it or singing it.
I smiled, wrapping my arms around his neck.
Me: Thank you.
Justin: You're welcome.
We pulled away, looking at each other. I took CD from his hand, holding it to my chest. He leaned down and kissed my lips. I wanted him to stay. I wanted him to stay in LA and have his arms wrapped around me. I want to kiss his lips whenever we start arguing over something stupid. But...he couldn't stay. He pulled away, looking into my eyes.
Justin: I love you.
A tear fell from his eye. I wiped the tear away, my own falling.
Me: I love you, too.
Before we could kiss again, Scooter pulled him away. Tears fell from my eyes as he walked away.
