I awoke next to Andy on the floor and rubbed my sore cheek. He had hit me that hard? Andy was sitting up and looking at something. He had a black eye and a bloody lip. I sat up and hugged him tightly. He hugged back kissing the top of my head, “Are you alright CC?” He whispered softly. I nodded. I heard footsteps.
“Andy we need to leave!”
“Where are we gonna go?” He asked then thought of something,” Let’s go,” He picked me up and we walked out the door. We walked to his house across the street. He opened the door and I walked in. He shut the door behind us, “CHANCE!”
A boy who looked about 3 years older came down the steps, “Hey Andy!” He pointed at me, “Who’s this?”
“A friend,” He said going up the steps. I followed. He opened a bedroom door and went in. I walked in and saw some posters on the wall. He threw me a KISS tee-shirt and some sweatpants. I started to change out of my jeans. He looked back at me and smiled, “Someone’s not shy, huh?” I shook my head and put on the shirt and not the pants, “Won’t you be cold?”
“Nope I got you to cuddle with!” I smiled. He shook his head and pulled off his shirt, revealing a six pack and some v-lines. It was around 11 so I was tired. I crawled on the bed and pulled covers over me. Andy got in with me and pulled me against his chest. I gladly cuddled with him. I looked up at him. His blue eyes met my brown ones and he connected our lips for the first time. My hands went to his neck and his hands went to my face. Our kiss deepen and soon we were in a full on make out session. We pulled away and the only thing that left our lips was, “Wow,” I cuddled up to his chest again and fell asleep dreaming of the kiss.
I woke up the next morning to Andy’s blue eyes and beautiful smile. I kissed his pink lips and smiled. I heard my phone go off next to me. I sighed. I picked it up, “Hello?”
“Where are you Christina?” It was my dad.
“None of your business, asshole!” I heard him growl.
“When I find you, you will be sorry!” I had enough, I hung up. Andy looked at me nervously. I sat up and put my face in my hands. Andy sat up and wrapped his arms around me and pulled me close as I started to cry.
“Shh, it’s okay. I got you, baby,” he cooed. He kissed the top of my head. I looked up at him. He smiled and kissed my lips and wiped the tears off my face.
“We need to leave, he’s threating me,” his eyes widened and he jumped out of the bed. He changed and then threw me a pair of white jeans and a white tee. I changed and saw he was in all black. I put on my white toms and put on his white hat. I looked at myself in the mirror and he snaked his arms around my waist and kissed my cheek.
“You’re so beautiful,” he whispered. He let go and grabbed his car keys from his dresser. We ran to his car and got in. Andy started it and pulled out of the driveway.
I was driving to Ashley’s house. He’d know what to do. I turned on the radio and looked at Christina. She had a bruise next to her eye from the slap her dad gave her. Collide by Howie day came on. I started singing along, but CC just stayed quiet, “Do you not like this song?”
“No I like this song, I just don’t sing,” she put her head down. I put my arm around her as I drove. I sang over the song and she started giggling. She put her legs up on my dashboard and pulled my hat over her face. I smiled widely at her.
We pulled up to Ashley’s and I got out to open her door. She got out and thanked me like a princess would. I laughed. We walked into Ashley’s house and I called for him. He came running down the steps, “We need your help, Ash,” CC looked surprised that he was a him.
“What’s going on?” He asked. I told him to sit down for the story.
Andy explained what happened to Ashley, who I was very surprised to see was a guy. Ashley was shocked that Andy and I were coming to him, “I don’t know, Andy,” he said, “Why don’t you go see Jinxx?”
“Because you’re my best friend and right now Jinxx will be pissed,” Andy replied. I looked at him and gripped his hand. He looked back to me and smiled sweetly, “Please help us Ash,”
“Fine. You can stay here for a while,” he said standing up, “but if I catch you two doing anything in my guest room you will be in big trouble. Got it?” We both nodded. Andy motioned for me to follow him. We went up the stairs and into a blue bedroom. When I say blue I mean everything was blue. Everything.
I remembered something as Andy ran back to his house to get clothes. I picked the phone to call him.
“Andy, I need clothes.”
“Don’t worry I have that covered baby,” he chuckled.
He came back an hour later, “What took so long?” I asked.
“Your dad wasn’t home and your cat attacked me,” he replied setting to suitcases and a small makeup bag on our bed, “You have a lot of clothes!”
“Yeah I know… Did you grab my uniform for work?”
“Yeah.. That’s what I do so I can buy clothes,”
“You don’t need to work anymore,” Andy smiled at me.
“Why?” I said nervously.
“We’re going to Los Angeles,”
