Beau and I swerved our way through the crowded shopping centre, dodging everyone walking towards us. I had bought a few things already within' an hour. Okay, maybe more then a few things... I'd got 10 tops, shorts, 5 pairs of shoes (vans, converse, black heels, white wedges and puma suede's) 3 pairs of jeans, 2 jackets, 3 casual dresses and 3 party dresses, 2 bags. I was intending on paying Beau back he must have spent at least $550 on me already. I weren't going to let him waste his money on me.
"Where do you want to go for lunch?" Beau said swinging our hands back and forth.
"Hungry Jacks?" I suggested.
"Sounds good," He replied.
"Is it alright if we stop by a few shops before we leave? I want to get myself a few things." Beau asked, finishing his burger.
"Of course, we can go in as many shops as you want. Thanks for today, I will pay you back, I swear." I said taking a sip of my coke.
"No, I said I'd treat you."
"Yes and you spent way more then you should have. At least let me pay half the money?"
"No," Beau argued back.
"You're meant to say yes."
"No, I'm treating you."
"You're so stubborn," I moaned.
"And so are you," Beau grinned. "Come on; let's get going before they close the place. We only have one hour left." Beau picked up half the shopping bags whilst I did the same.
"I want to go in the Vans shop again, and then want to get a few snapbacks and one or two tops."
"Okay," I replied. My phone soon started going off. Georgia's name flashed across the screen.
"Hello?" I answered.
"Hey! Are you going to the party tonight?"
"Yeah, are you?"
"Yup! Just a warning though in case Beau hasn't already told you, Marcus will try stuff so be careful." Georgia warned me.
"Okay, thanks. I'll see you tonight?"
"Yeah, bye!" I hung up.
"Beau, what's Marcus like?" I asked him whilst he flicked through the racks of tops. I saw Beau's body turn stiff.
"Why?" He mumbled.
"Georgia just gave me a warning, that's all." I shrugged.
"He's a good friend but if he has had too much to drink then he won't be a very nice person." He said picking up a top, loosening up a bit. "Mi, promise me you'll stick with me tonight? I know I said I'd let you do whatever you want but not tonight, not with Marcus around, please?" Beau begged me. I could tell from the look in his eyes he was scared. I nodded and gulped. What was so scary about this Marcus boy?
"I promise," I reassured him.
"What time does the party start?" Beau asked whilst hopping in the car.
"I don't know, Jai didn't tell me. Let me text and ask him." I pulled my phone out sending a quick text to Jai.
What time does the party start and finish tonight? X
Half 8 to 1 or 2 x
"Starts at half 8 and doesn't end until 1 or 2." I informed Beau.
"Okay, plenty of time to get ready." He said adjusting his gear stick. My phone went off again, I had a new text from an unrecognised number.
Can't wait to see you tonight, it's been a while ;)
Who is this?
How did you get my number?
Stole it off Skip, hope you don't mind? X
I was a little freaked out, not going to lie.
"Who is it?" Beau asked, turning the car, parking it in the parking lot.
"Marcus," I frowned.
"What did he say?"
"That he's looking forward to seeing me tonight," I bit my lip.
"He's trouble, Mi."
"You tense up every time I mention his name. Why?"
"You knew once, I'll tell you later. Come on," He wrapped his arm around my shoulder as we walked inside the apartments.
"What dress are you going to wear tonight then?" Beau called out from the bedroom, I was currently in the bathroom drying my hair.
"I have 3 choices; they're laid out on the bed, which one should I go for?" I asked for his opinion. (Choice 1: http://www.polyvore.com/amelias_party_outfit_choice/set?id=83411633, Choice 2: http://www.polyvore.com/amelias_party_outfit_choice/set?id=83413114, Choice 3: http://www.polyvore.com/amelias_party_outfit_choice/set?id=83414760.)
"The white dress maybe? I don't know, it's up to you." He replied, I walked out of the bathroom to find him staring at the dresses, day dreaming. I creeped up from behind him making sure he couldn't hear me.
"What you thinking?" I asked him from behind. He jumped a little, waking up from his day dream.
"Don't do that," He nudged me. I smirked.
"So, what were you dreaming about?" I said grabbing the brush from my bed side table.
"Nothing important," Beau said far too quickly. I gave him a 'you're weird' look but walked back in the bathroom. Beau followed me in there.
"Babe, you done? I need to start getting ready too." Babe, babe, babe. I started melting once again.
"Uh, yeah. Give me 2 minutes." I started brushing my long straight blonde hair. I saw Beau walk out from the corner of my eye. Breathe Amelia.
I started searching through the bathroom cupboards to see if there was any lip gloss or lip balms for my lips. I came across a packet of Vanilla chap sticks stuffed in the bottom draw. Vanilla, why did that sound so familiar?
"Right, favourite flavour?"
"Hmmm, probably vanilla," He run his tongue over his bottom lip.
But could that be what he meant? No, of course not don't be silly. Beau walked back in the bathroom.
"Yeah, erm, are these mine?" I picked up the packet of flavoured chap sticks.
"Yeah, you're obsessed with them things." He smiled.
"Of course I am," I bit my lip. I grabbed my hair brush and walked out the bathroom with the chap sticks in my hand. I placed them both on my bed side table. I glanced over the choices I had picked out for tonight.
"Hmmm, option two it is." I mumbled to myself, beginning to start getting ready.
