The Asshole is my Kryptonite

"Stop playing hard to get, Princess. I know you want me." He growled, pushing me against the wall. "In your deepest dreams, asshole." I responded holding his piercing gaze, whilst struggling to keep my breathing at a steady pace due to his close proximity. "Alright, if that's how you want to play the game. But remember, games are my forte." He breathed heavily near my neck, sending involuntary shivers down my spine. He smirked, before he was gone; leaving me to try calm my rosy cheeks as my heart danced to the ticking of the classroom clock. "Asshole." I muttered, before slipping out of the unoccupied classroom.


11. Surprise Singer

Chapter 11 - Unedited

There's always this one spot that serenades you, it brings you peace and it brings you happiness. It calms your dancing heart and steadies your breathing. For me it was on the large oaktree at the back of my house. It had been up for a couple years but it still held it's composure. There was this one firm, steady branch at the top that was strong enough to hold my weight with the starry night illuminating the rest of the town.

"Ma, why do we need to put water on it? Is it thirsty?" I questioned, as mum poured the watering can over the small patch.

"That's actually exactly right darling. Like you, this plant needs to grow. It needs water so it can grow big and strong." I looked up at her smilling figure and took the watering can from her hand and splashed the rest of the water on the moist soil covering the acorn seeds.

"We don't want to put too much water Tiff, or else we'll drown it." she giggled taking the can from my hands. I simply smiled innocently at her and crawled into her lap.

"Baby, you see this tree? It will grow great and healthy overtime just like you. When I was little, around your age, I had an oaktree that my grandfather helped me plant one. I watched it grow over time, it got bigger and bigger," she motioned with her hands as I stared at her in awe, "I then tried climbing it one day, I fell but didn't tell anyone cause I didn't want to get into trouble. So I got back up and tried again. Finally one day I managed to get all the way up to the branch I wanted. I was so proud of myself and everyday I would climb it and watch as the sun went down and the stars and moon came up." I looked up at her in delight and wonder, but she continued.

"Sweetie do you know what an oaktree symbolizes?"

"Symbolizes?" I questioned not knowing what such a big word meant.

She smiled saying, "Do you know what an oaktree means?" I shook my head as she looked down at me,

"It is a symbol of courage and power. It stays strong through everything, no matter what happens it stays up and doesn't let anyone or anything take it down." I nodded understanding what she meant, "Baby, I need you to promise that you'll be like that. Your still little but I don't want anything or anyone to bring you down no matter what. You have to stay strong. Whenever you feel like giving up I want you to look back at this and remember that you need to keep going okay?"

I nodded eagerly as if she had just told me a secret and I was the only one who knew.


"I promise Ma." I replied as we wrapped our pinky fingers together.

I strummed a couple strings on the guitar and the melodious sound was carried with the wind as it echoed in the air. I played the familiar strings I play every night in the tune of 'Give me Love' by Ed Sheeran. The strings bounced to the music and I closed my eyes, relishing in the peace of silence and the tranqility of the world at night.

I have never been a singer, mum was but I took after dad in the instrument department. So you can guess why when someone started singing next to me I nearly fell off the branch. I strong hand quickly grabbed onto my flailing arms.

A low chuckle escaped the messy haired, amused but idiotic guy who caught me.

"Geez princess, I was just getting into the song."


"I nearly died! Did you want me to have a heart attack?! You dumb dog!" I shouted as I punched his arm.


"I think the heart attack just came as a bonus. And dumb dog? Really I thought your insults were better princess." He shook his head smiling to himself.

He rubbed his arm saying, "Wow for such a beautiful girl you punch like a man." Beautiful?! Did he just call me beautiful?

Okay focus on not blushing Tiff.

Miles always seemed to have this effect on me, where something as simple as a compliment could leave me speechless, and this is talkative Tiffany we're talking about.

"Princess stop trying not to blush. You're only making it worse and it's adorable." Sure Miles, compliment me again, that's fantastic, I wanted to look like a tomato anyway!

I did the one thing I was best at and gave him the finger. It was then that I realized how good looking Miles really was. His jaw was well-defined and the moon shone, making his green orbs glisten like a star. His hair was messy, a if bed hair yet it was a look that guys would die for. His pants hung low on his waist, putting some of his v-line into view, as his shirt rode up when she slid his fingers through his hair.

"Princess, I know it's a great view and all but i'm starting to feel a little violated with the eye raping." Once again my cheeks betrayed me as I could feel them heat up.

"I wasn't...uh... I was just..." speechless - that's what I was.

He chuckled as I huffed and turned around on my branch so my legs were swinging down and my back was facing him.

"Give me love like her,

Cause lately I've been waking up alone,

Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt,

Told you I'd let them go,"

He sat by me, his soothing voice all that could be heard in the night. He continued singing 'Give me love' and placed my hand on the guitar, indicating he wanted me to play it. So I did. And there we were him singing and me strumming each string as it bounced to his voice.

His voice was incredible. It shocked me to say the least. It wasn't pitchy nor too low and as cliche as it may sound, it really was angelic.

The song came to an end and we just sat there enjoying each other's company. I slowly broke out into a giggle and Miles looked at me with furrowed eybrows.

"What's so funny?" he asked in confusion,

"It's just, I can't believe the schools bad boy, the troublemaker and their number one athlete can sing like a proffesional."

There was a small smile on his face as he said, "There's a lot you don't know about me princess." The sparkle that was once in his eyes had disappeared and was filled with a look of remembrance instead. It was as if he had entered his own world and left this one.

"Hey, you okay?" I nudged hoping it would bring him back to reality.

"Yeah, thank you." His smile didn't seem to meet his eyes but I didn't push it since it was obvious he didn't want to elaborate on it.

With one swift movement I fell back earning a gasp from Miles but little did he know that my legs were still wrapped around the branch. I hung upside down and as weird as it may seem I loved the feeling of my hair flipped over and the wind slowly swaying me back and forth. I gently placed my guitar on the grass under me.

Within seconds Miles had entered a position identical to mine. His shirt rode up a bit like mine, and it exposed his toned body. Oh sweet chocolate. Each ab of the eight were outlined clearly and I saw what seemed to be a tattoo poking out of his waistband. Although it was dark I could see the outling of a small anchor wrapped in thin rope. There were about three red roses on the vines and the words 'I refuse to sink' were written in cursive letters underneath.

"You have a belly button ring?" He questioned as he looked towards my tummy, causing me to feel self conscious. 

"You have a tattoo?" I mimiced him.

"Okay, fair enough." He chuckled 

"Every tattoo has a meaning, what's the story behind that one?" I questioned.

"I guess that's for me to know and you to never find out princess." He winked causing me to sigh in irritation. I am a very curious person and the fact that he didn't want to tell me only increased my wonder. 

"C'mon princess we have school tomorrow, and I heard we'll be getting out Design Technology assignment tomorrow." I nodded and flipped backwards off the tree landing on my feet with an astonished Miles infront of me. He copied me which I must say, was impressive. I was surprised of how much of a liking I had grown towards Miles.

As I picked up my guitar I slid it into the back door and walked towards the ladder outside my room where Miles was standing.

"Why do you have a ladder outside your room?" Miles questioned, like everyone else who had ever seem it did.

"Dad installed it for me since I come to the oaktree a lot." He nodded as if understanding. 

"Alright asshole, thank you for scaring the crap out of me today, but I better get some sleep."  

"Yeah, i'll see you tomorrow okay?" I nodded with a smile.

"Goodnight princess."

"Nighty night asshole." With that I climbed up the ladder and jumped into the window of my room. I let out a content sigh. There was something about Miles where whenever I was around him it caused me to feel all happy, and it scares me because the last time I felt like that with anyone was with Colton. 

Already being in my pajamas I climbed into bed, the tiring day taking it's toll on me. As my eyes got heavy and my mind had nearly entered the dark abyss of the unconsious, I heard the musical voice of someone outside my window, although it seemed like I wasn't supposed to.

"Give me love like her,

Cause lately I've been waking up alone,

Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt,

Told you I'd let them go,"

"Im so sorry princess." Before I could figure out what he meant by that the darkness had taken over me and I entered the world of sleep.
