"Where are we going?" I whined.
"Stop whining" Aaron joked putting his hand over my mouth. Bad move. I licked his hand causing him to pull away in disgust. "Gross" he said playfully shoving me. I shoved him back.
"You guys are acting like ten year olds" Kat muttered. I was about to say something back when I saw some one.
"MARCUS!" I shouted running towards him. He picked me up and started spinning me around. I was laughing so hard but I could still hear Kat say something along the lines of 'that's so cheesy'
"Right, like if they were in a movie" I hear Alisha mutter when Marcus set me down.
"I'm so sorry I ran out on our date, I was having an emergency." I told him as I hugged him again.
"Hey guys, do you remember Marcus?" I asked turning to him. They all nodded and I saw Matt shoot him a glare. I ignored it and ran up to the girls thanking them. Marcus was there for me when the whole Carter thing happened.
"C'mon" Marcus said grabbing my hand and dragging me behind him. I turned and saw everyone running after us. We must look like maniacs to some one passing by in a car.
"Where... Are... We... Going?" I questioned slightly winded. We stopped in front of a little store and waited for everyone else to catch up.
"Will you give me one more chance?" Marcus asked. I could feel him looking at me expectantly. What do I say? I have feeling for Carter, but he's never gonna like me. And I've known Marcus for years and he's super sweet. I nodded my head yes. All of a sudden he grabbed me by the waist and kissed me. Once we let go I saw everyone standing there looking at us awkwardly. What's wrong? I looked from face to face until I saw one I didn't expect to see. Carter.
I watched him stand there, in his snap back and nashty t-shirt, looking at the ground. What is he doing here? I have to brake this tension.
"Hey Carter! What are you doing here?" I asked as I hugged him. He hugged back tightly and let go quickly.
"I came to see you for your birthday, but I can see you have other plans" he said storming off. I was about to run after him when Marcus kissed me on the cheek.
"I have to go. My mom wants to see me. I'll pick you up later tonight at 8" he said walking away. "Happy birthday!" He called out once he was down the street. I stood there, in shock, replaying what just happened over and over. (Who likes the song over and over by 5sos? I love it)
I sat on the curb and watched almost everyone walk away quietly.
"Take the guys and go look for Carter. Check of he's ok" I whispered into Matt's ear giving him a quick peck on the cheek as he walked away. I watched him motion for the guys to follow, and they did so without hesitation.
"Are you ok?" Hannah asked sitting next to her. She just started at the ground with a blank look on her face.
"Annabelle" I called.
"Hey!" Kayleigh shouted. While Kat snapped her fingers in front of her face. Great. What are we going to do.
"What did I just do?" Annabelle croaked out. Her voice was full of emotion and her eyes full of unshed tears waiting to spill out.
"Shhh... It's ok. Let's go get some ice cream" Hannah said getting up and reaching out a hand to help her up. I watched as Annabelle took her hand and pulled herself up.
"I don't want ice cream. I want to go home" she said in a tired voice. I nodded and we all started the walk to our house.
Uh-oh Marcus returns. What do you think is going to happen? What do you think of Carter showing up unexpected. And omg! Chapter 20! There's only like 12 chapters left. I'm not sure how many but around there.
QOTC: favorite Carter vine?
Mine is the one where he's at the store, in the Barbie aisle, dancing to the Barbie girl song.
