9. Telling the parents

I wake up the next morning at 11 o'clock groaning as I roll over. I didn't end up getting back to my room until 3 and then I stayed up an extra hour just thinking about everything that happened. I smile to myself as I pull myself our of bed and head to the bathroom to take a shower.

 

After cleaning myself of any dirt I get dressed and grad my phone heading down stairs. After answering a text from Kelly I grab an apple and plop down on the couch. My phone vibrates and I smile looking at the caller ID. "Hello?"

 

"Hey come over in 10." I laugh while standing up to go back upstairs. "It sounds like I don't really have a choice."

 

"You don't, so hurry up." The line clicks dead and I throw it on my bed while going to the bathroom to do my make up. Smiling at the mirror at the finished product I grab my phone and write a note for my parents telling them where I am before heading outside. "I wonder where they are." I think out loud walking down the street.

 

I reach Brooklyn's house and before I have time to knock I'm yanked inside. I let out a little yelp and feel a hand clamped over my mouth. "Scared you?" There's humor in his eyes as he stares back at me. "Shut up." I say when he finally lets go of me. He kisses me quickly on the lips before pulling me through the kitchen to the basement. "Hi Mr. Beckham." I say as we pass him on the couch. He yells hi back reminding me to call him David. I still can't believe I am on a first name bases with David Beckham.

 

Once in the basement Brooklyn sits on the couch pulling me onto his lap. Laughing I wrap my hands around his neck and kiss him deeply. "I missed you." He whispers causing me to smile from ear to ear. "It wasn't even a day." I laugh kissing his cheek.

 

"Doesn't matter. I'll always miss you."

 

"That's so cheesy." I slide off his lap replacing the spot with just my legs. He flips on the TV and the Vampire Diaries are on. "I love this show." Brooklyn puts down the remote and sits back relaxing.

 

About halfway into the episode I start laughing and can't seem to stop. "What? What is it?" Brooklyn looks at me completely confused on what's so funny. After regaining my composure I'm able to speak. "I just keep thinking about how my dad told me that any guy willing to watch the Vampire Diaries should have his man card taken away." I giggle at Brooklyn's reaction until he grabs my arms throwing me to the ground straddling my legs. "Does someone with their man card taken away do this?" He kissed my neck softly moving up my jaw to my lips.

 

Someone clears their throat and our heads shoot up coming face to face with David. I can feel my cheeks getting redder and redder as Brooklyn slides off of me. "Lunch is ready." He simply states before turning around to walk back upstairs. I sit up and Brooklyn starts laughing uncontrollably. "What's so funny? That was so embarrassing." He doesn't answer instead standing up reaching a hand down to me to pull me up.

 

We walk upstairs to see everyone sitting at the table waiting for us. I try my best to avoid David's gaze but I can see him smirking next to me trying to hold in his laughter. There's mac and cheese on each plate along with broccoli. We dig in having very little conversation.

 

"Ok." David speaks up causing all heads to look his way. "If you guys are together-"

 

"You guys are together?" Victoria asks smiling from ear to ear when we nod slowly.

 

"Like I was saying, if you guys are together than there needs to be some changes. First no closed doors." We both nod and I still refuse to look up off my plate.

 

"Second, if you guys are going somewhere we need to know where and what time you'll be back. Understood?"

 

"Yes sir." Brooklyn says while I just give a quiet yes.

 

The rest of lunch remains quiet except for the occasional comment from Romeo or Cruz. After we help clean up Brooklyn takes my hand and walks outside taking a seat on the porch swing. He swings us back and forth while drawing circles on the hand he's holding. "Do you want to go to my dads practice in an hour?" He looks over at me and I'm guessing my huge smile gave it away because he laughs and then stands up bringing me back inside.

 

We walk up to his room and once we step inside you can hear David yell "Keep the door open." Brooklyn groans while I just laugh taking a seat on his bed. Brooklyn takes a seat next to me and kisses me lightly on the lips. "Have I ever told you how glad I am that you moved here?" A smile crosses my face and I peck his cheek before getting up and reaching down to pull him up with me. "Come on." We walk downstairs just as David's heading out with his soccer bag. "Is it ok if we join you?" Brooklyn asks his dad and he smiles before ushering us outside.

 

I can't believe I get to meet the L.A. Galaxy soccer team. The drive is short only about ten minutes. I see the sign for the Home Depot Center and get butterflies in my stomach at the excitement. Brooklyn takes my hand as we get out of the car and we all walk to the field. The first thing I see when we go in is soccer balls flying all over from people shooting or just kicking it back and forth. My mouth is wide open staring at everything around me. "Wow." Brooklyn pulls me along to introduce me to all the guys.

 

"Look who's joining us. Hey man." Landon Donovan says shaking Brooklyn's hand. "Who might this be?" He asks looking over to me. "This is my girlfriend Paige." Landon shakes my hand and gives me a warm smile. Some how I'm able to speak as I say hi to all the guys who come and introduce themselves to me. I know most of their names but pretend I don't so I don't seem like I'm hard core fan girling, even though on the inside I was.

 

The practice starts and Brooklyn and I take seats on the stands watching them do drills. "They're incredible." I say looking at Brooklyn as he smiles and removes a hair from my face tucking it behind me ear. He leans in and kisses me causing my whole body to tingle.

 

We keep kissing until a loud noise goes off scaring both of us. We turn towards the field and see Landon laughing next to David. I look over and see a soccer ball laying on the bleachers. "No more of that." David yells and everyone cracks up laughing minus Brooklyn and I. "That was so embarrassing." I say putting my head in my hands. "It's ok. Don't worry about it." Brooklyn rubs circles on my back as I continue to wallow in my embarrassment.

 

By the time I get home it's already 8 o'clock and I'm exhausted. I head upstairs and just as my head hits the pillow  their is a knock on the door. Groaning I get up and walk down to see who could be bothering me at 8 o'clock at night. I'm prepared to yell at whoever it is but as I open the door that words get caught in my throat.

 

"Hey Paige."
