When I woke up the next morning I was a little confused as to where I was. But as I saw Selena laying beside me on the big bed it all came back.
Getting to meet my parents, my twin sister and her best friend, telling Selena and Demi about my bullying problem. Selena surprising both Demi and I with her confession. It's all too much. I'm getting a headache.
As I walked out to the bathroom I locked the door and looked at my self in the mirror. I look like shit. Tear stained cheeks, bloodshot eyes and bags under my eyes because of the lack of sleep, I guess I had another bad dream. I sighed and looked through the bathroom cabinets. I found a towel and went to the shower. Stepping in I washed my hair with the strawberry shampoo and conditioner on the shelf. I think it's Selena's, she said strawberries is her favorite thing to eat. That's another thing we have in common. I absolutely LOVE strawberries.
Walking out of the shower I put the towel around my body. As I dried my body I put on some underwear and clothes I had in my backpack. A cute blouse and skirt. I blow dried my hair and it felt into my natural waves. Since I didn't have much makeup I looked through the cabinets. I hope to find Selena's makeup bag. Yes! There it was. Putting it in the counter I began working my magic. I put on eyeliner, mascara, some foundation and concealer and lastly lipgloss. I sighed, that's the best it's gonna be.
Walking out of the bathroom I saw Selena sitting on her bed rubbing her eyes. "Good morning,"she said yawning. "Good morning sleepyhead. Slept well?" I asked her pretending last night didn't happen, it's easier. "Yeah. I had a strange dream. You were there and Demi were there and you were crying, I was crying and Demi was crying. You told me and Demi you were being bullied and I confessed something. What happened last night?" She said looking at me confused. Yes this is my chance to undo what happened last night. I couldn't help but grin. "Well when Demi came on visit I pretended to be you and all day be talked and got to know each other. Why don't you remember?" I said actually a little hurt. "I'm sorry Rebecca. I have this thing where I sometimes can't remember what happened the day before. My short-term memory is really bad," she said apologizing. Hm, I can use that as my advantage. No. I'm going to use her. Only this one time. "It's okay Selena. It's not your fault. So fancy a sister-bonding day?" I said smiling at her, it's of course fake. I'm crumbling inside because I can remember the nightmare I had last night.
"Sure just let me get ready. I'll be down in twenty, max!" She said smiling before running to the bathroom. As I heard the door lock I looked around the room. First then I saw the suitcase laying on the floor in the corner. Oh yeah she lives in LA. She is going to leave me like everybody else do.
I went down the stairs and felt the tears in my eyes. I swallows the lump in my throat. I am not going to cry, not again, not ever. Reaching the bottom of the stairs I saw my mom and dad in the kitchen. Mom making breakfast and dad reading todays newspaper and drinking his coffee. Just a normal morning, like nothing happened yesterday. I don't want to talk about that. I just want to move on and not think too much about it. That's what has been keeping me going for so long. The most of the time anyway.
Saying good morning to both of them, my mom places a plate in front of me. I didn't eat anything, I just stared at it. My mom gave me a worried look but I just smiled at her assuring her that I'm just not hungry. Of course she believed me.
After Selena came down and ate her breakfast we both said our goodbyes to our parents and we were out. As Selena and I was in her car on the way to wherever she is taking us we talked about anything and everything. It was nice.
"Did she really say that?" I laughed so hard when Selena told me a story about one of her friends. It was so funny! "Yes she did! I laughed so hard!" Selena said busting out laughing once again.
When Selena stopped the car I looked out the window. The mall? "What are we doing here?" I asked as Selena and I walked out of the car. "We are going shopping, duh! You don't have any clothes and I want to spoil you!" She said putting on her sunglasses handing some for me too. "Why are you giving me these?" I asked "Oh trust me, you will need them," she replied linking our arms as we walked towards the mall.
As we walked up to the entrance I put on the sunglasses. I don't know why but I had a feeling it was a good idea, and I was right. As we step inside the mall we were swarmed with people and there cameras. Paparazzi. I hate those people and there stupid cameras and I'm sure Selena felt the same way because she took my hand and walked faster as they began asking questions.
"Who is she Selena?"
"Is she your girlfriend?" What?
"Why does she looks like you?"
As the person said that they began asking more questions about our similar look.
As we finally got away from them Selena let go of my hand. "I'm so sorry about them. They are not always like that. You will get use to it, I promise," Selena said. I didn't answer. She sighed and took my hand again dragging me into a boutique named Forever 21. Never been there. I always wanted to, but I don't have the money to buy anything in here, it's so expensive. Well for me anyway. Selena could buy the boutique if she wanted to, I'm sure.
Five hours later....
Those five hours past by so fast! I feel like my legs is going to fall off and my arms aren't any better. I have almost fifty shopping bags hanging from my arms, half fram Forever 21.
I wasn't looking where I was going as I bumped into a hard chest. I felt to the ground dropping my bags in the progress. Ouch! I really should look where I was going. "I'm so sorry! Here let me help you," I heard a wonderful British voice say. I love British accents. As I looked up at him the only thing I saw was a hoodie and sunglasses. I took his outstretched hand just as Selena came running with her shopping bags. "I'm sorry Rebecca I was signing something," she said as she reached me. "Its okay," I replied. She looked at the boy and down to our hands. I saw he was still holding my hand. I quickly took my hand away from his, blushing. Talk about awkwardness.
"We should get going," Selena said still looking at the boy as if she knew him from somewhere. I nodded in agreement. I'm exhausted! As Selena and I was about to go I heard the man call out for me. I totally forgot him for a second! "Hey, hey, wait!" I heard his pitch yet deep voice say. "Can I get you number?" He asked as I turned around. Phone number? I don't even know him. But for some reason I gave it to him. As I turned around to walk away with Selena he kissed my cheek and smiled at me. I blushed and walked away.
Selena looked at me and wiggled her eyebrows at me. I just laughed and blushed even more as she made kissing noises at me. We still had out sunglasses on as we walked out of the mall. The mysterious guy had helped me with my bags too so I had them with me. As we walked out of the mall we were once again surrounded by paparazzi. Have they been waiting for us? Wow.
When we reached Selena's car we put all of our bags into the trunk of the car, I had most of course, and got into the car. Putting on our seat belts we were on our way home.
About five minutes into the drive l got a text message from 'Louis :)'. It must be the guy from the mall. Louis nice name.
"Hello love it was nice meeting you." -Louis :)
"Hi Louis it was nice meeting you too and even though I couldn't see your face it was nice ;)" -Becca
I didn't know where the confidence came from as I send a winking face to him but it was with a good feeling.
"What are you smiling at your phone for?" I heard Selena say making me jump. Was I smiling? "Um.. No-nothing!" Damn. My stuttering and I. "Is it the guy from the mall?" Selena asked getting excited, she smiled bigger as I nodded my head blushing to a light pink.
For the rest of the car journey home and the evening she was teasing me. But I didn't care because I was texting Louis the whole time. When I went to bed it was the first time in a long time I didn't cry myself to sleep. But that didn't take my nightmares away.
