She was staring out that window, of that SUV. Complaining, saying 'I can't wait to turn 18'. She said, 'I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules.' Mamma put the car in park out there in front of the school. Then she kissed her head and said 'I was just like you... 'You're gonna miss this. You're gonna want this back. You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. These are some good times, so take a good look around. You may not know it now, but you're gonna miss this'...
As I sat there listening to some songs about growing up and love. All country songs, but I love so many country songs. I felt someone put their hand on my shoulder. I looked up removing one of my headphones it was Liam. I smiled and he smiled back at me as he held our food on the tray. I removed the other and he sat across from me. I just smiled at him as he handed me my food.
"Keira, you alright? You're awfully quiet."
I nodded, "Yeah, Li I'm alright just thinking about some things."
He cocked an eyebrow at me, "What about, love? If you don't mind me asking."
I shook my head, "It's alright. It's just about someone," He nods completely understanding and starts to eat his food smiling at me. I smiled back. I truly missed his smile. I then asked him a question I shouldn't of asked, "What is with Danielle? She won't let me see you anymore."
"Did you not hear me? What the hell is up with Danielle? She's acting like a bitch. She used to let me see you all the time," I said crossing my arms.
"Excuse you!" Liam says sassy like and then starts yelling at me, "She's not a bitch. She's just jealous of you!" he stood up slamming his hands on the table.
I jumped back, "Jealous How the hell is she jealous?! We're just friends!" I yelled getting closer to him.
He sighed and sat down crossing his arms, "It's none of your damn business, Keira... You're not my mother!"
I stood up and grabbed my food, "I'm just going to leave, Liam. And you can think about what the hell you just said!" My voice cracked as I headed out the door and started walking home.
I looked down at the necklace Liam gave me again. I unclipped it from my neck looking at it in the palm of my hand. I gripped it and then dropped it to the ground walking again with my arms crossed as I began to cry. It started to rain and I didn't care. I just continued to rain. It was sunny, but rainy....
As Keira left I just watched her leave. I wasn't going to run after her because I know she needs to blow off some steam as well as I do. I put my head down and sighed. I shouldn't of said anything. I noticed that it started to rain. I got up and grabbed my food heading to the car. I put it in the passenger seat and buckled up.
I started driving heading in the direction that she went. I drove for about a minute and saw something shiny on the sidewalk. I pulled over and got out hurrying over with my hood up. I picked it up and it was the necklace I gave her before we walked in. I shook my head, "No, no. What happened to her? Anything could've happened," I panicked and got back in the car hanging it on the review mirror. I just drove and drove, but I couldn't find her anywhere. I decided to call her. I dialed her number and it started to ring.
I arrived home and my mascara was running down my cheeks. I closed my front door and put my food in the microwave. Then i headed up the stairs. I closed the door gently and chucked my purse on my bed. Then went to the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror. I sniffled and grabbed a washcloth. I put some warm water on it and wiped my mascara off my cheeks.
I put the towel down and sank to the floor as I began to cry again. I put my right hand on my face crying into it. Then my phone rang on my bed. I just sat there on the cold hard ground as my tears kept falling. I can't believe that he said that. I'm not answering any phone calls from anyone. I'm not in the mood.
After my phone stopped ringing I got up an headed back into my bedroom. I sat on the bed and began to think. I got my phone out of my purse and looked at my missed calls. It was Liam. I just set it to silent threw my phone at the chair. It made a plop sound on the fabric. I just shoved my purse on the floor and took off my soaked shoes throwing them wherever.
I took off all my clothes even bra and underwear and put on dry stuff. I just laid my stuff wherever. I just didn't care right now. I got under the covers and snuggled into the covers as I stared out the window of my bedroom watching the rain fall. I listened to the small taps on the roof of my house. With that I began to fall asleep to the peaceful sound of that.
Later that night I was laying in bed awake, but tired. I heard the raindrops fall on the roof of the house and on the window. I sighed and just got up in my black short shorts and purple tank top. I looked out the window with my arms crossed. A car drove by and I heard the water splash as they drove by. I just sighed.
I just watched the rain fall. I couldn't fall asleep after my nightmare. Well, wouldn't say nightmare it was more of a very sad dream. I dropped my arms and made my way to the bathroom. I turned on the light and winced from how bright it was. I looked in the mirror and I looked horrible.
My hair was a mess and I had bags under my eyes and my make up was somehow smeared. I sighed. I shouldn't wiped it off before I went to bed. I grabbed the same towel I used for mascara and got it wet again and started wiping my smeared make up off looking in the mirror.
After I finished wiping my make up off I brushed my fingers through my hair and sighed. I put my hair in a braid and just stared at myself in the mirror. I stood there for a minute before looking away and exiting the room. I flipped off the light and went over to my bed. I sat down and grabbed my book on the nightstand. I turned on my lamp beside my bed.
I began to read and then not to long after that there was a knock at the door. I looked at the clock and checked the time. 3:12 AM. Who would be here this late? I sighed and grabbed my bathrobe and put it on. I hugged it around me and headed downstairs in my pink bunny slippers.
I turned on the porch light and looked out my window beside the door. I rose my eyebrows at who it was. I hurried over to the door and unlocked it opening it, "Liam, what are you doing out there you're going to catch a cold." he scurried in and t seemed like he was drunk from how off balanced he is. I was snapped back to reality when I heard him sneeze.
I told him to stay where he was and I went to the hall closet opening it. I grabbed many blankets and hurried over to him wrapping them around him. He was shaking. I couldn't believe this a drunken Liam shows up at my door while it's pouring rain out. To tell you the truth it was stupid of him. He wasn't being the responsible Liam always knew. What had happened within those 7 hours that made this happen? I was bound to find out.
I helped him over to the couch and sat him down. I bent down in front of him taking his hands in mine, "You okay?" Liam just nods slowly. I nodded, "What happened?" He looked away hurt. It seemed like he didn't want to talk about it. I just sighed and took a glance at my feet and looked up at him, "It's alright you don't have to tell me. I was just curious," I stood up and said, "I'll be right back with some dry clothes and some hot tea for you okay?"
He nodded and as I started to walk to the kitchen, "Thanks..."
I stopped in my tracks when I heard Liam's voice. It was barely audible. I took a glance at him and smiled nodding a little. I opened the door to the kitchen and walked in. I took a breath and started to make Liam's tea. If only he knew the truth. I poured it in his favorite mug when we used to sit in front of the fire place covered in blankets and talk about anything and everything. I smiled at the thought.
I walked into the living room and Liam was just sitting on the couch staring at a blank TV screen with a blank expression. He seems upset about something now. I walked over putting my hand on his shoulder. His face shot towards me. I smiled and put the mug in his hands. He smiled and took a sip. He sighed like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders.
I kissed his head and headed upstairs to my room. I got into my closet and picked out some of his older clothes that I never got rid of because I knew he would be back soon enough and I was right. I grabbed his sweats and just a plain white v-neck t-shirt and headed down the stairs. I put the clothes on his lap, "Sorry, I don't have any boxers here," I giggled a little trying to lighten the mood, but that didn't seem to work.
He smiled a little nodding and says, "It's alright I'll wear the one's I'm wearing now," he says kind of slurring. Yup he's drunk. That's a tequlia smell and why did he drink that strong drink.
I nodded, "I'll be right back. I'm going to get myself some tea, okay?" he nodded as I went to the kitchen. I heard rustling around and knew Liam was changing. I chuckled shaking my head as I started my tea. As I made my tea the rustling wouldn't stop. I went into the living room and Liam was standing and I could see his bare bum. My eyes widened as I dropped my mug on the ground. I heard a crack and I knew it was broken.
Liam suddenly turned around covering up with the blanket suddenly sobering up, "Oh my gosh, Keira." he was a blood red, "Oh my God, I didn't mean to scare you," he said quickly putting on his sweatpants and I was too shocked to look away. He hurried over after dropping the blanket, "I'm so sorry," he says getting on his knees and started picking up the little pieces. I did the same I didn't say a word as we picked up the glass pieces, "I'm so sorry you had to see that. I didn't know you were going to be that quick."
I shook my head, "I-It's alright. I should've asked if it was okay to come in," we both reached for the same large piece and our hands touched. I blushed and we looked into each others eyes getting lost in them. We stayed staring into each others eyes for a minute and he cleared his throat standing up. He was embarrassed still from me seeing his arse. I picked up the big piece and headed to the kitchen and Liam was close behind me.
I threw the glass in the trashcan and as I dropped the pieces one cut me, "Ouch!" I yelled Liam hurried over dropping the pieces on the ground.
He took my hand in his hands as he looked at the cut. He took my hand over to the sink and turned on the water. He put my hand underneath it. I looked at him as he took a glance as me and got into the cabinet with band-aids and things to clean a cut with. He moved my hand from under the water turning it off and drying it with a towel. He noticed there was a little bit big piece of glass in the pam of my hand. I winced as his fingers touched around it but I couldn't help, but love how gentle he was being and how good he was with his hands.
He ignores my pain and grabs tweezers. I took a breath biting my lip. He grabs the glass with them and pulls it out. I winced at the pain that shot through me. He noticed it started to bleed again and wrapped a towel around my hand, "Keep pressure on it, babe," he says. I looked up at him when he said that. I couldn't help but smile when he smiles at me, apparently not realizing that he called me babe. We were staring into each others eyes for a few seconds and then he chuckled, "What, babe?" he asks.
My heart fluttered with his words. I shook my head looking away blushing. I just heard his chuckle again. I felt the towel being took off my hand. I felt the air rush to my cut. It stung, but it'll be fine. Liam held my hand with one of his hands and grabbed a band-aid. He let go of my hand and I just held it where it was. He turned towards me and put a cute band-aid on it carefully. He gently caressed my cut with his thumb as he looked into my eyes, "There all better."
I smiled and said, "Thank you, Liam."
He nods, "Anything for you, princess."
I smiled wider. He called me a princess and then he just chuckled, "No more picking up glass for you. I'll do that from now on," he jokes not to far from my face. I giggled, but I could smell the tequila on his breath once again, but overall he was acting sober. Did I do that? Snap him out of his drunken stage. That'll be something...
As I stared into her eyes I couldn't help, but fall for her all over again. Just like I always have. I know she feels the same. It's too obvious not to know that she likes me a lot... Maybe even love me. She's the one that brought me back to my sober stage. She's the one that let me inside from the pouring rain. I didn't think she would especially after what I said to her, which I regretted right after I said it.
As we stood there in silence I decided to break the silence, "I'm sorry," she looked at my obviously confused. I sighed, "I'm sorry for what I said about you being my mother. That was immature to say," I cupped her left cheek in my right hand.
She leaned against my hand closing her beautiful eyes, "I know," she says quietly and puts her hand on mine removing my hand from her face. We never lest each other's eyes. I felt her lace her fingers with mine her hand on top of mine. I smled softly as he rubbed my knuckles. She slowly moved our hands down to our sides. She took a step closer to me and our noses were touching.
By this time my heart was pounding. I felt her take my other hand lacing her fingers with mine once more. I just smiled and my breathing was uneven. She's the only one that does this to me.
We started to sway back and forth, "I-I can't dance," I said taking a step back releasing my hands from hers.
She just giggled, "It's easy. I'll show you," I nodded after taking a breath. She took my hands again and put them on her waist. She wrapped her arms around my neck. We were only inches apart.
I felt her start swaying with me again, so we were just dancing right before this? She just stared into my eyes as we swayed slowly and peacefully. I let myself take over because I've seen the movies about dancing, but never really knew how. I twirled her and she giggled. That made me smile. Her cute little giggle made me smile like an idiot.
When I brought her back into my chest she then said, "I thought you didn't know how to dance?"
I blushed and said, "I don't. I just saw that in movies and I don't know. I guess that I wanted to try it," I shrugged.
She just smiled and we swayed again, "So I was just an experiment?"
I shook my head, "No of course not!" I panicked a little.
She just laughed and rubbed my chest soothingly. "Don't worry babe. It was a joke."
I just blushed from embarrassment. Way to go Liam. Way to embarrass yourself. She just smiled and continued to sway with me.
We just danced the night away, making jokes, compliments, and before I knew it is was morning... The most amazing night ever... Especially with the woman I truly love.
