11. Complicated Compliments
We drove around a little bit and I looked over at Calum every few minutes. I looked at him again and he noticed me looking. He saw me and smiled at me. I quickly looked front and could feel my cheeks burning up.
*flashback* I was walking randomly through the HUGE crowd in the mall. One person caught my eye. One person out of the thousands. The only thing running through my mind was 'This person will either change your life or you will change his if you get to know him' Little did I get to know that both of these things would happen. The person I was staring at caught me looking at him and smiled at me. I looked away as I felt the blood rush to my cheeks and walked away.
As I pushed through the crowds and walked about half a mile. Just as I stopped to enter a store, H&M to be precise to pick out a few jeans and tops, I felt someone tap my shoulder. I turned around and saw the guy I was looking at earlier. 'Hey! Im Jake.' He says. 'Hi. Im Ruth' I say tilting my head to the side. My hair was in a high-ponytail and the tied up hair fell on my face and got stuck on my lip balm. He laughed and put the loose hair behind my ear. 'Im new here, do you mind showing me around..?' I could see sincerity in his eyes. 'Sure' I replied
*end of flashback*
He wasn't always bad.. He was a good person once. Just fell in the bad company. Made his and my life miserable. I hope he is being treated right at rehab.
I sigh loudly. 'Im sorry if your bored. We will be there in 5 min max promise.' Calum says. 'No its not that. Im quite cozy in this car.' I laugh and say. He switches on the radio and 'Just give me a reason' was playing.
Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
I sang along aloud to the lyrics. 'You have a nice voice' Calum states. 'Thanks' I reply
