They had to change it at last minute didn't they! Ugh. A black and white ball, and I've just found out! This is probably the worst day ever! I ruffle through my wardrobe looking for something to wear.
"Darling ?" My mother appears at the door her voice ringing through the room. "I've got something for you." She comes in and puts a bag onto my bed smiling.
I hesitantly walk over to it and pick it up. She grinning now... I grab the hanger that pops out and pull out a beautiful knee length dress , it flows out at the hips and is completely white except for the black thick belt around the waist that has sparkles on it. "Oh! Mum! You shouldn't have!" I gasp hugging it. I throw it on the bed and rush over to my mum hugging her tightly. "Thank you mum!" I whisper.
"Your welcome darling." She laughs and hugs me back. "Now the boy you're going with I must talk to him." Oh no.. The talk.
"Uh.. Mum there's no need for that." I say quickly.
"No darling there is a need for it." She grins. "Now you better get ready, you'll look beautiful in that dress by the way." She whispers before walking out shutting the door softly. I smile and grab the dress
"Shit." I mumble looking at the clock. Only an hour to get ready... I throw my clothes off and shove the dress on checking myself in the mirror I then rush over to my curlers which are just about melting my cabinet. I grab them and curl the bottom of my hair. Once done I spray with hairspray. I then quickly apply my makeup giving myself a smokey effect. I look in my full body length mirror and smile. I actually look... Hot. I quickly slip in my black heels grab my bag and rush down the stairs just in time for the door opening. When I get at the bottom my father stands at the bottom of the stairs smirking. Knowing in some way be is teasing me opening the door , "hello sir. Is Lola there?" I hear Cole's voice at the door.
"Yes. She's giving me growlers from the top of the stairs." He chuckles.
"Well that's her for you." I can hear the eyeroll in his voice. I roll my eyes and walk down the stairs. I push past my dad and to cole. "Wow Lola.. You look beautiful.." Cole mumbles.
"Not so bad yourself." I laugh. He had a white and black tux on making his abs stand out. He was seriously really hot. I look at my dad and see he's about to say something. "Bye dad!" I shout he grabs my arm.
"Not so fast missy." He chuckles . I groan.
"Cole is it?" Cole nods. "Well. I want to ask you a few questions." Cole nods again. "What do you think about drunk driving?"
"It's totally unspeakable , you're putting not only yourself at risk but also other people." Cole says smartly and my father nods approvingly.
"How do you feel about taking advantage of a girl when she is drunk." My cheeks are now flushing scarlet, well done father.
"That's also unspeakable , that wouldn't be right if you need to get a girl drunk just to have sex with her. It's wrong either way." Cole chuckles.
"Now what about having sex without protection." My dad goes on totally embarrassing me making me hiss in actual pain.
"That sir is between the people who are going to do it and is none of your business." Cole smiles nicely.
"Okay. You should be going now." Dad sighs then leans down to my ear , "he's a keeper." He whispers . My face goes beet root red and they both laugh. I roll my eyes and stalk out of the house.
"I'm sorry about that." I whisper.
"Don't be . If be worried if they didn't ask." He laughed opening his car.
"What do you mean?" I ask stepping into the door he was holding open for me. I sit down buckling in quickly as he rushes to the other side.
"Well I would expect them to care about you." He continues , "if they didn't id be extremely worried." He smiles starting the car looking at me. "Oh. And did I tell you. You're actually so hot today."
I blush. "Thankyou." I whisper.
"Like only 10% hotter than usual." He smirks and starts driving.
"Oh really." I laugh and he nods. We quietly stare out of the windows for the rest of the way.
I get out of the door once we stop and stumble onto the curb, I trip up and have to lean onto the hood of the car so I don't fall. "Be carful Lola!" Exclaims cole running over to me. "What's wrong?" He asks.
"Nothing , I tripped." I laugh and shrug.
Cole puts a hand on his heart. "Don't do that again.. You gave me a heart attack." He laughs shakily. He smiles and snakes his arm around my waist guiding me into the house party.
"Lola! What happened! You cancele- " Justin sighs then stops mid-sentence. "Oh . Never mind."
"I'm sorry Justin. "I felt cole tensing beside me. "But I gotta go."
"Yea we gotta go." Hisses cole making everyone whisper. I sigh shaking my head. "Don't ever speak to him again." Cole mumbles as soon as we're inside.
"Don't tell me what to do." I whisper.
"You don't know him like i do. He's a back stabber." Cole says darkly.
"Don't ruin the party cole." I whisper. He sighs and softens.
"Okay.. For you." He chuckles after a few minutes and drags me to where everyone is dancing to a song. I laugh and we dance together. "You're actually so hot tonight Lola." Breathes cole.
"You mentioned that." I giggle.
"And I will keep mentioning it."
"Okay." I laugh and I peck his lips.
~5 hour later~
"Cole I'm tired." I slur. Okay yea I had been drinking.
"Okay baby. Lets get home. I texted your dad and said you'd be staying with me." Cole sighs and puts an arm around me. "Hey Bronx. I'll get you tomorrow." He pats him on the back then guides me out the door.
I yawn. "What did he say?"
"That that's okay as long as nothing happens. Which won't. Because you're drunk." He laughs a little and he buckles me into the car. He runs to his side and starts it, driving quickly home. I was too tired to notice the speed. "We'll be home in a minute." He whispers soothingly.
"Kay.." I whisper leaning my head against the window.
"Are you okay?" He asks.
"Don't go to sleep yet."
"'ay." My words are slurring now. The darkness takes over my eyes and I'm gone. I can hear cole sigh in the distance and the next thing I know I'm being carried up a flight of stairs and gently placed onto a bed. It's cold for a few minutes until I feel a warm body slide in beside me.
"I love you Lola.." I can hear him whisper and I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm fully asleep. And I'm not. They words mean a lot to me. And I will remember them. He's not the one to go throwing words about... I'll ask him tomorrow. And that's the last thing I remember. 'I love you Lola..' The words running through my mind on repeat...😴
