**1 year later
I haven't spoken to Shawn in about a year, he had made it big after Magcon broke up. To be honest I was proud of the little ass, but still holding a grudge. Taylor and I had been secretly together, but soon to be public in a month when I officially turn eighteen. Cameron and Nash have kept me in contact with everyone, and Mahogany and I have became inseparable. However, today was the day that I was going to confront Shawn, technically I was here with Cam to hear his new song. Eh, potato, patato.
"Cart, are you sure you want to come?" Cameron asked getting in the drivers seat. "Yes, he is on tour with Taylor effing Swift, obviously I'm going." I said hopping in the passengers side. "I just don't want you to get hurt again, I didn't think this breakup would cause so much damage." Cameron said pulling out of shared apartment. "Well, it didn't, I've been single for a year because I like turning down guys." I nudged Cameron making him laugh. "Right, my sister, Carter Dallas, turns down guys." He said turning the corner to go to Nash's. "Can we pick up Taylor too?" I asked unlocking my phone. "What is your new found obsession with Taylor?" Cameron asked raising his eyebrows. "We're really good friends, like me and Nash." I fake smiled. "You do know Nash, has a huge crush on you right?" Cameron said pulling up in front of his house. "Yeah, I know. Taylor told me on my first day at Magcon, I actually like Nash a lot too." I said hopping out of the car. "Then go out with him!" Cameron said in an obvious tone hopping out aswell. "No. I have a crush on someone else also." I said blushing, at just the thought of Taylor. "Who??" Cameron clenched his jaw. "Why is it you have a problem with every other guy except for Shawn, and Nash? I'm almost eighteen years old Cam!" I said knocking on the door. Suddenly the door swung open to a tired Nash, and a sleeping Skylynn on his shoulder.
"Hey Cam, Hey babe." Nash said softly. "Awe, poor baby." I said grabbing Skylynn from his arms. "Are you coming to see Shawn?" I asked rocking Skylynn to sleep. "Probably not, Sky, and Hayes are in town for the weekend." Nash said yawning. "Hayes didn't help you with f*cking anything?" I asked walking through the door to see Hayes on his phone scrolling through Twitter. I laid Skylynn on her little mat, before slapping Hayes in the arm. "Help Nashty!" I whisper yelled. "Carter, I missed you!!" Hayes yelled, waking Skylynn up. "Carter?" Skylynn asked rubbing her eyes. "Yeah babe, it's me." I smiled as she ran to me. "Your amazing Carter. I love you babe." Nash said pulling me into a hug with Sky in the middle. "When do I get a hug?" Hayes pouted on the couch. "Come here idiot!" I yelled jumping on him. "Okay, well Nash can come, and Hayes can watch Sky." Cameron said checking the time on his phone. "Yes! Please go Nashty." I batted my eyes, sticking my bottom lip out. "Fine, I'll watch her." Hayes said picking up Sky as I lightly kissed his cheek.
"Thanks. Your such a sweetheart." I smiled, grabbing Nash's arm. "We'll be home about 1:30?" Cam told Hayes ruffling his hair. "Okay, I'm surprised your okay with this Cart." Hayes said nudging my shoulder. "Uh. Yeah, we should probably get going." Nash cleared his throat, as he began to push us out. He closed the door as we walked hand and hand out to the car. "So, Nashty, what have you been up to?" I asked as he pulled me into the backseat with him. "Nothing really, but I may have a date with mahogany." Nash proudly smiled. "Woah, woah, woah. My Mahogany?" I asked, snatching my hand from his, "why?"
"Well, Cart I realized I had zero chances with a girl I really, really, loved, not liked, loved. So I'm trying to forget about her, by dating Lox." Nash said interlacing our fingers once again. He was clearly talking about me, how am I supposed to get out of this mess? "Well, maybe you should have told the girl how you feel, then actually you would have stranded a chance." I whispered, pulling my hand away, before crossing my arms. After about 8 more minutes of the awkward silence I had created, when finally we pulled up at the hotel. Screaming girls flooded, and we're screaming, some wearing Shawn Mendes shirts, some wearing Taylor Swift shirts. We hopped out getting bombarded by what seemed like hundreds of fans. "Cameron! Nash!" We heard a familiar voice yell. I looked up to see Shawn standing in the lobby with two security guards, hiding his...muscular figure? Wow. Someone has grown up-- A LOT
"Carter?" Shawn's voice grew weak. Right. Cart. Snap out of it HE HATES YOU. "Well, let's go." Nash said pulling me along. I slowed my steps dreading the next few hours. We walked into the lobby, as Cameron and Nash, did a fist bump handshake with Shawn. "Uh, hey Carter." He said scratching the back of his neck. "Hi, Shawn." I smiled weakly, "well can we head up to the room?" He nodded as I awkwardly clung to Nash's shoulder.
Babe😍: Hey babe, I'll meet you at the hotel in 5 minutes. Tell Mendes to keep his hands off my baby😜😜
From Babe😇😈: That is if we bother to talk. See you soon❤️
Babe😍: See you soon. 😜💟
I shoved my phone into my pocket as I followed them to an elevator. "Nashty, will you carry me?" I said as we all piled into the elevator. "Sure Thing Babe." He said pulling me into his arms bridal style. I giggled as I began to play with his hair. "So, you two are together now? Still after Carter quit Magcon?" Shawn asked awkwardly, "What happened to Taylor?"
"Taylor?!" Cameron snapped and looked over at me. "What? No, me and Nash, aren't together. Him and Mahogany have a date. And I'm just single." I explained pushing away from Nash.
Shawn smiled and looked down at the ground we arrived at the third floor. "It's room 306."
Babe😍: 10 minutes away 💕😜
From Babe😇😈: Please hurry, Shawn thought Nash and I were a couple 😳 Save me❤️
Babe😍: Tell Nash to keep his hands off.😡 Your all mine.
I started to type but I was interrupted by Shawn unlocking the door. "Well here we are the 'Premium' suite." Shawn smiled pushing open the door. "Okay, cool. But bro., where's Taylor's room?" Cameron wiggled his eyebrows. "Down the hall. You want a key?" Shawn shrugged tossing a card at Cameron. "We will be back momentarily." Nash said snatching the card from Cameron. "Idiots." I giggled watching him and Nash run down the hallway. "Can I come in?" I ask, looking down at my feet. "Oh, yeah Cart. Of course." He smiled. When he said Cart, it made my heart flutter.
"So that new song is a hit with the swifties, I'm assuming." I laugh sitting on the hotel bed. "Yeah, totally. It's been awesome, and being with your celebrity crush, isn't so bad." He laughed nudging my shoulder, and sitting down next me, with his guitar.
"Can I hear this new hit?" I smiled, pushing a strand of my hair behind my ear. He paused before beginning to play soft strums.
"I thought that I've been hurt before, but no ones ever left me quite this sore. Your words cut deeper than a knife, now I need someone to breathe me back to life.
Got a feeling that I'm going under, but I know that I'll make it out alive if I quit calling you my lover, move on. You watch me bleed until I can't breathe, shaking. Falling onto my knees, and now that I'm without your kisses I'll be needin' stitches. Tripping over myself, aching. Begging you to come help, and now that I'm without your kisses, I'll be needing stitches.
Just like I'm marked onto a flame, oh you lead me in I couldn't sense the pain, your bitter heart, cold to the touch, now I'm gonna reap what I sow I'm left seeing red on my own.
Got a feeling that I'm going under but I know that I'll make it out alive if I quit calling you my lover, move on. You watch me bleed until I can't breathe shaking, falling onto my knees and now that I'm without your kisses I'll be needing stitches. Tripping over myself, aching. Begging you to come help, and now that I'm without your kisses I'll be needing stitches.
Needle in the prick gotta get you outta my head, needle in the prick gonna wind up dead, Needle in the prick gotta get you outta my head, needle in the prick gonna wind up dead, Needle in the prick gotta get you outta my head. Needle in the prick gonna wind up dead.
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe, shaking, falling onto my knees, and now that I'm without your kisses, I'll be needing stitches. Tripping over myself, aching, begging you to come help, and now that I'm without your kisses, I'll be needin stitches.
Now that I'm without your kisses I'll be needing stitches. Now that I'm without your kisses I'll be needing stitches."
He finished the song off on one easy strum. "Wow, Shawn, that is beautiful." I smiled weakly. Of course, he hasn't dated anyone since me, this has to be about me. "Carter, that night, the girl kissed me. After Cameron..." He trailed off shaking his head. "After Cameron what?" I asked grabbed his hand. "Cameron whispered something in that girls ear before she kissed me. Cameron broke us up." Shawn said looking into my eyes. "Cameron did that, how could he? I thought he trusted me." I said laying my head in his chest. "I wrote stitches about you Cart, I couldn't bare it, I felt something with you." He said laying his hand on my cheek. "Now that I'm without your kisses." He softly sang, as he pressed his lips softly on mine.
He moved his mouth in perfect motion with mine as our tongues collided. "Shawn,..." I mumbled. I pushed him off me. "I'm sorry, but I'm dating Taylor." I said looking down. "Then why did you kiss back? You felt it Carter, I know you did." Shawn said throwing his guitar to the floor. "Damn it Carter! Why do you keep denying it! You know you love me, not Taylor!" Shawn yelled. "Stop, Shawn your scaring me." I whimpered as he hit the wall with his fist. "Shawn I-" I said touching his shoulder, "I love you."
Did I say that? I've been together with Taylor for a year in two days, and I've never told him I love him. How could I do this?
"I know, Carter. But your with Taylor, isn't that how the story goes?" He fumed. He looked up, "Shawn please stop." I whispered. Suddenly his hand made contact with my cheek, and I fell to the floor.
I held my face shocked, that little shy Shawn, had turned into this. Just then the door swung open, "Hey Cart, I'm here." I heard Taylor's voice. He walked in and saw our position, "Mendes?! Did you hit Carter?!" Taylor yelled. "I- I didn't mean to it jus-just happened. Carter, I didn't mean to." Shawn stuttered trying to reach for me but Taylor stood between us. "Leave Carter alone." He said bending down and collecting me in his arms. I said nothing but cling to his chest. He walked out of the room and slammed the door.
"Babe are you okay?" Taylor asked setting me down, pulling me into a huge hug. He bent down placing kisses all over my face finally placing one on my lips. "What happened?" He asked holding my hand, "Taylor, I-I love you."
"I've been waiting to hear that I love you too." He smiled kissing me softly. I stayed in his arms for a moment before both of our phones buzzed.
"Tay, this is not good."
