10. Chapter 10

I was on the way to Zoe's house, we were having a "group reunion" since we haven't been hanging out as much.

When I arrived, I realised everyone else were already there. I rang the doorbell and I heard footsteps tapping on their floors. 'Bex!' Zoe squealed, leaning in to hug me and I hugged her back. 'Come on, everyone's in the garden.' She smiled, holding my hand and taking me to the backyard.

'Guess who's here!' Zoe said, standing at the doorway, hiding me behind her. 'We know who it is, Zoe.' Said Kate. 'Come out now Lockwood!' Called Mere and I went out of the house. Everyone was there, Kate, Meredith, Kyle, Wren, Zoe and... Damian. Just like old times.

I took a seat on the cute little chairs that were surrounding the round table, in between Kate and Meredith. 'So how's everyone?' Mere asked, 'how are you and Alfie?'

Everyone stared at me, waiting for me to give an answer. 'We're fine.' I smiled softly, and everyone else smiled along. But one person, didn't look that happy; Damian.

I brushed the thought of Damian off my shoulders and concentrated on what everyone else were talking about. So, Mere's mum is having a baby, Kyle got a part-time job somewhere no one knew about, Zoe's parents got her the new iPhone 5s, which I already am using, everyone's already using it in our group, we bought them together except for Zoe. Cause she said her iPhone 3Gs is still working perfectly, but it looks like its been dropped in the gutter a billion times. Wren's planning on volunteering at the veterinarian. Kate's getting all A's and B's in all her subjects which is pretty impressive cause she used to get D's and F's before she got tutored by this nerd at our school, and from what Kate told us about him, he's pretty cool if I do say so myself. And Damian, Damian's just Damian, same old same old.

'Your turn, Bex.' Said Zoe. Now all eyes are on me, again. 'Well, I learned how to make grilled cheese sandwich without burning the house down.' All eyes widened. Seriously, they can be so mean sometimes. 'You- made grilled cheese sandwich?' Mere started. 'Without burning the house down?' Kyle continued. I rolled my eyes, 'you guys are dicks.'

Everyone laughed, and I laughed too. 'No, its a good thing, Clove. You've achieved something you weren't able to do for the past 16 years.' Said Damian. I looked at everyone weirdly, 'I don't know if I should thank you, or shoot fire at you.' And again, everyone laughed. God, I'm so funny aren't I?

We spent the whole day at Zoe's, eating crap that we're not allowed to eat in front of our parents. Oh and Zoe's parents are out of town. And we watched the whole season 1 of How I Met Your Mother, which is our favourite show ever. And we ended up leaving at 9:36pm, as I said, we spent the whole day at Zoe's.

When I got home, I straight away went to the shower and took a nice, long, warm shower. It was literally freezing. After that, I put on a tank top, a pair of leggings and a hoodie; Damian's hoodie. He gave it to me when we were in New York together.

I looked at my window and saw Damian's was opened. So I opened mine, Damian was just sitting on his bed, reading something. Not a lot of guys I know read but Damian's.. Well Damian, he's special. He noticed I was watching him and smiled. 'Can I come over?' I asked and he nodded.

I wore my comfy Ugg moccasins and climbed out the window, to the tree and into his bedroom. 'We used to do this a lot when we were little.' I chuckled. 'We still do it now, silly.' He said. 'Silly? No one says that anymore.' I teased. 'There are!' He said. 'Who?' He put his hands on his chin, thinking, yeah he does his thinking like they do in the movies. 'My grandma.' He said. 'Oldie.' I laughed.

I walked around his bedroom, a lot of football stuff like the ticket to Manchester United and Liverpool's match that we went together. It was for his birthday and I bought us tickets, even though I don't even like football. Its just a typical boy's room. And there are some pictures of us together.

'Its my hoodie, right?' He asked and I turned around. 'Yeah. You gave it to me remember?' He nodded. 'We were walking down the Manhattan streets together.'

••flashback••

'Clover you're freezing!' Said Damian as he held my hand. 'Here.' He said, taking off his hoodie and putting it on me. 'Then you'll get cold.' He smiled, 'I'm wearing a sweater another shirt underneath whereas you were only wearing a very light, flowy top.' I nodded. 'Clover you're getting pale, come on there's a Starbucks nearby.' He said and I nodded. 'Hop on.' He said, bowing slightly so that I can get on him and I did as he said. 'Thanks Damie. I love you.' I said, 'I love you to Clover.' And with that, we went to Starbucks as he carried me.

'Take it off.' He said, and I did so and gave it to him. 'You've never noticed this haven't you?' He asked, showing me a little wording that's inside the hood itsef. "Clover ❤️" it read.

I looked up at him and I swear I was crying. 'Rebecca I'm in love with you.' He said. 'I've been in love with you ever since I can remember. And I know you love me too, I know you're in love with me too. You're only with that Alfie guy because I didn't give you a chance. I kept telling you that you're my best friend. I guess you lost hope, and went for someone else. I'm a dickhead, I know. But Rebecca, I'm in love with you. Truly, madly, deeply in love with you.'
