17. Date Me
It was later that night and Isabelle just arrived to Liam's hotel room. I was contemplating going to their apartment, she's probably alone at the moment. I finally muster up the courage and call the security guards up to my door so they can get me downstairs and out of here as fast as possible.
"I feel fine, Derek." I say as my best friend since high school walks around the kitchen.
"You don't look fine." He replies.
"Gee, thanks." I joke and he turns around and his face drops.
"That's not what I meant and you know it." He smiles and turns back around and puts the kettle on. He fidgets around a little and I sit there just watching him.
"It feels like forever since the last time we saw each other. It must be fate that I saw you at the beach earlier this morning." He turns around and smiles. His black hair a mess atop his head. His green eyes were soft and caring.
"It is fate." He replies. "And it's only been 2 months, don't be clingy." He joked. I laughed.
"Anything new since I last saw you?" I ask, curious.
"Well.. I'm in a relationship now. It's been a month and a half." He smiles shyly and turns around when the kettle makes a noise.
"What's his name?" I ask him, excited for the news.
"Jamie." He replied.
"Hm.. Jamie. Jamie's are usually very attractive." I say as I grow more curious. He holds two cups and walks toward me taking a seat beside me and handing me a cup. Green tea.
"He is. He's so hot." He begins to obviously daydream about him. I click my fingers in front of his eyes.
"I can tell." I laughed. He poked his tongue out.
"So, tell me. What's happening with you. I mean, in more detail." He said and took a sip of his tea. He placed it on the small table in front of us as did I.
"The usual. I mean, so I met this guy right, and he's shown signs that he likes me and when I think things are getting good, bam, has a girl friend." I said. He signs as if he's annoyed.
"Why does this keep happening to you?" He asked, obviously a rhetorical question. "4 times during high school, twice in college and now this. Seriously, you're amazing, you're beautiful and I'm more than sure those should be reeling the guys right in." He said gesturing to my breasts. I couldn't help but laugh.
"You've already made me feel better." I say. We kept talking and talking, hours must have past.
Some time passed and I was laying on the couch half asleep. Derek sat on the ground with his back to the couch. He was sleeping over for the night. And before I knew it I was fast asleep.
