A few days had past and Justin had been coming to the book store to buy new books but even I knew that wasn’t even the case, so today I am going to ask him why does he keep coming in? I sighed to myself as Laura and I talked.
“So your parent’s forgot your birthday again” She said.
I nodded, I really didn’t want her to know that I was breaking even more inside, the bell on the door rang as Justin stepped through, Laura smiled and asked him if he needed help but he just shook his head and eyes landed on me.
“Okay than call any of us if you need anything” Laura said and headed out the back.
Justin walked up to me, “Hi” He said.
“Hi, what are you doing here?” I asked.
“Buying books” Justin said.
“Oh really so every day since we met you come in here and buy more books” I smile softly.
“Yeah” He said.
“Justin please tell me why you are really here” I said getting a sigh out of him does the mean he is going to tell me?
“I want to get to know you Angel, I want to be your friend” Justin said.
Justin wants to be my friends a girl he barley knows, I was shocked but my heart didn’t seem to mind, “Okay Justin we can be friends” I said and gave him my number.
“Really?” He asked surprised.
“Yes but I don’t trust easy” I said which made him nod.
“Neither do I, do you want to come around later just as friends” Justin asked.
“Sure I finish work at 5:30” I said.
“Same, I work at the guitar shop around the corner” Justin said.
“You play?” I asked which made him nod, wow he was cute and talented. I write songs and sing a little if that is classed as a talent, my parents never cared.
“I heard it was your birthday Monday” Justin said.
I turned to look a Laura who smiled, “Yeah it was.”
“Well happy birthday” Justin smiled.
“Thank you” I said and watched him look at books.
Did I really just make a friend? If I did than this will be the first one a year, I haven’t really talked to anyone besides Laura she knows me to well.
“You like him” Laura whispered in my ear.
“No I don’t” I said looking at her.
“I’ve known you for 10 years Angel and I know when you like a guy” She whispered in my ear.
“I’m just scared that I will get hurt again, I don’t want him to die or whatever” I whispered.
“Hey… Hey” She whispered and hugged me.
“I can’t lose someone who was close to me again” I whispered in her shoulder.
“I know… I know, take the rest of the day off hang out with Justin” Laura whispered in my ear and rubbed my back.
When we pulled away, I wiped my eyes and made my way over to Justin.
“Hey Justin want to go out for lunch Laura gave me the rest of the day off?” I asked.
“Sure I have 30 minutes left on my break” He said.
I turned to Laura and smiled, I could see her smile back like a proud mother. When Justin and I hung out we just talked and got to know each other a little better, he told me about his ex and my heart just broke, who would hurt someone like Justin he is too sweet and nice. I wanted to tell him about my sister but I just broke into tears but he held me close and told me he can wait, I loved having his arms around me, maybe I am in love with Justin but I want to see how things go before I tell him how I feel. I saw Justin look at his phone and sigh.
“I have to go back to work” He whispered.
“Still on for tonight?” I asked.
“Yeah” Justin said, we both stood up and left the café.
As we were in front of his work, he hugged me before walking inside, I waved him goodbye and well I went to the park and sat under the tree where Bec and I used to sit and talk. We would always sing together, she played guitar and piano, she would always make me smile she was the light to my world, I hated how the bullies bullied her to death and when she died they acted so sorry towards us but I will never forgive them for what they did, they killed my sister they drove Bec to the side of cutting, suicide and pain. I want Bec back but I know that she will never come back not in a million years, I just want to see her smile again hear her tell me everything was going to alright, I wiped the tears off that fell from my eyes and stood up grabbed a razor out of my bag and carved in the tree ‘I Love You My Amazing Sister Rebecca Love From Angel’ I than drew a massive heart around it. Bec loved hearts just like me, she would always draw them.
When I had finished work I drove home when I arrived to my house I saw Angel sitting on my front porch, I parked my car and stepped out.
“Angel” I said softly.
She looked at me and smiled standing up, “Hi sorry I didn’t know where to go so I sat here and waited” Angel said.
“No its fine come on in” I said as I opened my door.
Once Angel was inside I gave her a tour and I could see her mouth gape open in surprise and happiness.
“This place is awesome” She said.
I smiled, “Thanks love do you want anything to drink or eat?” I asked but Angel just shook her head.
“I’m fine thanks” She said.
Later that night Willow, Angel and I were sitting around the dining room table and ate our dinner while talking, I could see Willow giving me a few smiles and I gave her the what look. When dinner was finished I took Angel home.
“Thank you for the best day and night ever Justin” Angel said.
“It’s no problem what are friends for” I smiled but the work friend hurt, I wanted to be more than friends, getting to know Angel realized that I want to be with her and I know she doesn’t trust people easier, neither do I. But I do trust Angel I am just hoping she trusts me.
Angel smiled and kissed my cheek before exiting my car, I felt my heart speed up when she did I waved to Angel when she did and drove off home, damn Angel is defiantly someone, someone who is worth loving and being with.
