"Justin, that was beautiful." I said in absolute shock. No one had ever done something like this for me. I looked up at Justin and he leaned down to kiss me. The soft touch of his lips on mine sent sparks through my body. I felt him smile in the kiss and I know he felt those sparks too.
We pulled away and immediately there were multiple "awww's" and even some
"eww's". Around us, there were all the underclassmen that had lunch with me.
"Sarah! You didn't tell me it was official!" exclaimed Abbie as she burst through the crowd towards us. She was smiling though, so she wasn't actually angry. Justin got up and took my hand as he pulled me forward towards Abbie. We stopped once we got close to each other and Justin snaked his arm around my waist, pulling me closer.
"I can't get over this. This is honestly too cute!" Abbie said as she hopped up and down grinning. "I know right. I make her look a lot cuter." Justin kid as he poked my nose. "Will you get a picture of us so I can post it on Instagram?" Justin smiled as he passed his phone to Abbie.
"Of course!!" She squealed and Justin and I laughed. The crowd was still there taking our picture, but Justin's guards were slowly pushing them away.
Abbie got into position to take our picture and I got up next to Justin.
"Alright, one… two…---" And suddenly I was picked up and in Justin's arms as he held me bridle style. I squealed and Abbie was laughing her head off. Justin was grinning like a child walking off his first roller coaster.
"Don't squirm!!" He said laughing. "We gotta get a cute picture!!"
I stopped moving around and he said "good". I looked towards the camera, but Justin's hand moved my face back towards his. He closed his eyes and leaned into kiss me and of course I leaned in too. Abbie hit the button and the camera clicked.
"OMG, just perfect. My little Sarah is growing up!!" And she showed us the picture. Justin was smiling in our kiss and my cheeks were so red.
"Abbs, please send this to me" I said smiling.
"Then send it to me baby." Justin said as he slid his arm around my waist.
*later that day*
I've gotta tell her some time. I have to go back on tour. I'm took a couple days off to win her over and make her mine, but my management is pressuring me about getting back to work. And the day they want me back on the bus on my way to the next city... Is tomorrow.
I pulled out my phone. "Hey darling, headed to your place. Need to talk."
Immediately, I got a response, "kk. Can't wait :)"
She's so cute. I wish I didn't have to leave again so soon.
I got to her house and she opened the door. She had some sweats on and a warm up jacket. Her hair was in a messy bun but she was still beautiful. I pulled her into a tight hug and she happily returned it. When we pulled apart, I took her hand and pulled her towards the couch. She sat down close besides me, but in one quick moment, I pulled her onto my lap and she straddled my legs.
"Baby, this is hard to tell you. But I gotta get back on tour."
"Justin, it's okay. I understand it's your work and it's what you love."
"And I love you too angel. But I leave tomorrow..." I trailed off.
The look on her face stabbed my heart. She was sad. You could see it, but I was expecting this.
"Tomorrow? What? Um. Well. It's okay. Baby, I'm proud of where you have gotten in your career. I'm going to miss you but I mean I could always text you." She tried to come off as confident but her last words cracked a little as she tried to hold back her tears. I took her face in my hands. She was so perfect. With my touch, a tear fell from her eye.
"Sarah, please don't cry. I will be here for you where ever you are. Angel, you're amazing." As more tears fell from her eyes, she moved closer and put her head on my shoulder.
"Justin, will you stay for a little?" She said as she came up off my shoulder and wiped the tears from her eyes. She even smiled a little.
"Of course dear." I turned her around but kept her on my lap. "Let's watch some TV."
We literally got through two shows when I heard soft and slow breathing coming from Sarah. I can't leave her like this. I pulled out my phone and txted Scooter telling him I would be ready to leave tomorrow afternoon but I was staying with Sarah for the night. Then, I slowly pulled her down as I laid down on my side and tucked my arms around her waist, pulling her as close as I could. I quickly snapped a picture of us so I could set it as my wallpaper before laying my phone down on the side table. Slowly, I fell asleep right next to her. I'm going to miss her soo much. I hope she'll miss me too.
