Hey guys sorry for the late update but I'm actually on vacation right now so it's hard to post since really all I have is my iPad and phone and my laptop is at home :P but ya enjoy the late update!
Alex and I have been friends for a month or two now but I still have never been to his house. I kind of wondered what it was going to look like.
"Hey want to turn on the radio?" Maddie said gesturing to the middle of the dashboard where the car radio sat.
"Ya sure." I said hitting the round button. The volume was down kind of low but I could hear the song "Fancy" coming faintly through the speakers.
"Ugh I hate this song," I said.
"Are you kidding! This is my jam!" She said turning the volume up so loud the car was shaking. She started to sing and eventually I just joined in. Surprisingly I knew most of the words to the rap, but Maddie knew them all. Finally I heard the last notes ring out and the DJ's voice come on the radio.
"Good evening folks and I just got a request from an anonomous listener to play this song for a special girl somewhere out there right now. Here's I won't Give Up by Jason Mraz." He said I felt my stomach jolt. I saw Maddie look at me and then turn to the radio to shut it off but I stopped her by putting my hand
"No. I want to hear it." I said. And she nodded.
I heard the inro start to play and then the voice of Jason Mraz started to sing. I started to remember everything.
I thought of the first day we met, how nervous I was talking. Him singing this song and looking me straight in the eyes and smiling as he sang. Our first kiss in the mall, and those times when we would stay up talking for hours. I remembered it all. I didn't even notice the amount of tears running down my face, and when I did I didn't wipe them away, I started to smile and sing, because he wouldn't want me to cry, he would want me to be happy.
"Cause even the stars, they burn," I sang when the second verse came along and I saw Maddie turn to me and she started to sing with me.
"Cause I won't give up on us," We sang. Singing those lyrics gave me a whole new perspective on everything. I can't give up on finding him. He gave me all of his love and I'm not letting that go. The song stopped and I laughed.
"That was the happiest four minutes of my life." I smiled and wiped the tears from my eyes. A few songs later we pulled into his driveway. He lived in an apartment like us but I had a feeling his was going to be a lot nicer judging on the fact that the lobby was crazy neat, decorated with paintings and pictures of some famous people hanging on the wall. I recognized some of them.
"Why are there pictures of these people here? Did they come for a visit or something?" I asked.
"Actually no all of these people were residents here at one point." The lobby man said coming up behind me.
"Really?" I said surprised.
"Yes, at this moment we don't have any celebrities but we do have kin of them staying here." He explained.
"Wow." I said.
"Sam, you coming?" Alex asked holding the elevator door open.
"Oh sir let me get that for you." The lobby man said rushing to the elevator. I followed.
He stepped in the elevator with us and inserted a key into a small lock next to a floor number. I watched the numbers above the door until we reached floor 28. The doors opened and Alex stepped out.
"Woah." Maddie and I said at the same time.
I looked around. This place was a full out pent house. There was a staircase to my left and two tall glass doors which lead to the terrace in front of me.
"You like it?" He asked laughing and Maddie and I both nodded.
