| Fae Simpson |
His lips pressed against mine, the softness of his lips made me giggle a little. I felt the coldness of a lip ring pressing against my lip. The kiss didn’t last very long, nor did it actually involve tongue. It was just a simple kiss, nothing more than just a kiss. I pulled back to stare into those familiar brown eyes. I could feel that I was blushing, and as I looked around the room I saw Ariana wink at me.
“I think that’s enough of that” I laughed, moving effortlessly across the floor to join Ariana on the floor. My hand was taken into a cold hand, and I looked up to see Harry looking at me with what was it? Jealousy? Yes, it was definitely jealousy. I gave him a reassuring smile and he kissed my forehead lightly and smiled back at me. He laced his fingers into mine and stayed quiet. I took a sip of the alcohol in my hand, tasting the burning taste of it. I scrunched my eyes a little as the liquid burned my throat.
“I don’t see why you drink that stuff” I looked up to see Harry laughing at me, shaking his head. I shrugged, not really giving him an answer. I wasn’t quite sure myself, it wasn’t the best alcohol I could be drinking. But I did know it would make me drunk quicker. “You should slow yourself down a little” He told me, a serious look on his face. I shook my head, letting my soft curls bounce around my head. There was a lot of noise in the room, almost as if there were a lot of people talking to each other. I had all my attention on Harry, and then his lips touched mine.
I shot up in bed, sweating a little. I looked around my surroundings and found myself in the giant double bed, surrounded by what seemed liked bookcases. My heart was racing and I felt scared. It took me a couple of minutes to calm down, my heart beat to slow, and actually realised I was ‘home’. Right now it didn’t feel like home, it was just a place for me to stay. I noticed how the sun was shining through the small window I did have. I pushed the covers over my body and entered the small bathroom that was located in my bedroom. I splashed my face a couple of times to wake myself up and to cool myself down. Once done I did my business in the bathroom and found an oversized hoodie to wear. Once I found one with the words ‘Janoskians’ on, I headed downstairs.
As I neared the stairs I could smell something that smelt really good. I couldn’t tell what it was, but it did smell familiar. I slowly made my way into the kitchen, as I heard giggling coming from downstairs. I stood by the kitchen door watching as Justin tickled that same blonde girl, he was sat on top of her straddling in the middle of the kitchen. I cleared my throat to let them know I was there. Justin’s head snapped towards me and he had a huge grin on his face. He got up from the girl, helping her up too.
“Morning Fae!” He came over to me and hugged me tight. Once he pulled back he pointed to the blonde, I knew her name was Gemma, and suddenly he didn’t look so happy. “We didn’t really get the chance to introduce you to Gemma yesterday” Justin told me. I gave her a small wave, feeling slightly awkward. She just kind of gave me a smirk. I’m not sure what it was about this girl, but I certainly didn’t like her.
“You stayed the night?” I stupidly asked Gemma, she was wearing an oversized t-shirt and what seemed to be her underwear. I was suddenly feeling really awkward and uncomfortable being around these two. Before the accident Justin and I were together, not that I remembered anyway. Questions started to form in my mind as I watched Justin go back to the food he was cooking. Were Justin and I serious about our relationship? Serious enough for us to have sex? If we had sex did I lose my virginity to him? If not, who?
“Fae, are you okay?” Justin suddenly look worried, but I just nodded my head in response. I didn’t know how to explain to him how I felt so uncomfortable. I shouldn’t care that Justin was with someone else, but something deep inside me thought I just was good enough. If Justin loved me like he told me he did, why was he still with Gemma and not trying to make me remember him?
“Um, I’m just going to…” I didn’t finish my sentence, instead I just left the room heading straight into the living room. I had other things to think about, and Justin wasn’t one of them. I sighed as I plopped my bottom onto the now familiar red sofa. My mind wondered to what I had dreamt about, why would I dream about kissing Jai? He’s my best friend’s boyfriend, I didn’t have feelings for him, did I? This whole thing was too confusing, I mean Justin bringing his new girlfriend to the house when I still live here? So what if I didn’t remember isn’t that a bit disrespectful? I’m pretty sure we never technically broke up either, because I was in a coma.
Once I had the TV on I immediately started to flick through the channels. I came to a news channel and decided it would probably be good for me to catch up on what was going on in the world. I wasn’t paying too much attention until Justin’s name was mentioned.
“Is this it for Justin and Fae’s relationship again?” The reporter asked. I stared confusingly at the TV as my name was mentioned. “Last night, after celebrating his 21st birthday clubbing Justin was seen leaving the club with a mysterious blonde” I opened my mouth about to call Justin in, but I was transfixed on the TV. “The two were seen holding hands, and were even caught kissing!” The reported exclaimed.
“Uh, Justin! I think you should get in here!” I called. The picture flashed off the screen as Justin came in to see what was wrong.
“The two were even caught going back to his home in which he shares with model girlfriend, Fae Simpson” A picture flashed across the screen and Justin’s mouth dropped open. He began to mutter what seemed like swear words.
“What are we going to do about this?” I asked, not really understanding what it means. Just at that moment there was a knock at the door and Justin disappeared to answer it. Ruby came rushing in with a smile on her face.
“How are you?” She asked me quickly as she took my hand and dragged me upstairs.
“I’ve probably been better, but I wouldn’t know” I laughed at myself, but Ruby didn’t find it funny. “What are you doing?” I asked when I realised she had actually pulled me up to my bedroom.
“Linda called, she told me she was going to tell you. You need to pack your stuff and come and stay at my place” Ruby said, already packing a load of my clothes into a suitcase. I stared helplessly at her, not understanding what was happening. “Because of what Justin did last night, you’re breaking up” She told me flatly. She suddenly stopped what she was doing and chucked my phone towards her. “I tweeted from your Twitter account, basically confirming the split” She told me still packing things into my bag. Once the suitcase was full she headed downstairs and I followed her close behind, she headed towards the front door.
“Why don’t I get a say in this?” I stopped dead in my tracks, obviously annoyed. This wasn’t fair, why did I have to drop everything I had because Justin couldn’t wait one more month for me to wake up?
“You don’t get a say in this Fae because you and Justin weren’t in a real relationship. It was all lies” Ruby shook her head, looking pissed off with me. I opened my mouth to say something, but was cut off when I heard that all too familiar squeaky voice.
“You weren’t even in a real relationship with her Justin? Why did you put us being together off so long if you weren’t really together?” I turned around, wanting to hear what Justin had to say. He was looking slightly uncomfortable with this situation.
“Ruby doesn’t understand. She never listens, Fae and I were together for real. Maybe not the whole time we have been together. It was more of a recent thing before the accident. But Fae and I were in love with each other” He looked pained to say that. I shook my head at him a little disappointed.
“Just yesterday you were telling me that you do love me, not that you did love me” I sighed, this was all too confusing. I turned to Ruby and gave her a look to let her know that I just wanted to get out of there.
Once in the buckled up in my seat Ruby started the car and we sat silently for a while. I watched as the scenery changed from green to almost white. The trees and bushes had been swapped for buildings.
“I’m so glad you’re finally back” Ruby finally spoke, causing me to turn and look at her. She stopped the car and smiled at me. I smiled back and then she threw herself into my arms. “I was there by your side every day. I missed you more than anything” She had started crying, and I didn’t have the slightest clue how to comfort her.
“I have a, uh, question” I spoke and Ruby just looked at me with hope. She nodded, patiently waiting for me to ask. “Does Ariana’s boyfriend have a lip ring?” It was a really weird question, but it made sense to ask it. She looked confused at first as she shook her head, and then something clicked in her head.
“Luke does” She told me.
“Luke?” I questioned, really not knowing who she was talking about.
“Jai’s twin brother. Have you seen a picture of Luke or something?” She asked, but I shook my head.
“I, uh” I stopped myself from speaking, taking a pause “I dreamt that I kissed him” I sighed. “I haven’t been told or seen a picture of him, how can I dream about him?” The question left my lips and Ruby’s eyes lit up with hope.
“That wasn’t just a dream!” She shrieked and she opened the car door, running towards the front door of a house. I followed behind her, trying my best to make sense of things. “That was a memory Fae” She told me excitedly. “You were playing truth or dare. Your dare was to kiss Luke!” She had the door unlocked by now as was frantically rushing around the house. “Just stay here, okay? I’ve got a couple of errands to do” She was out of the door again before I could answer.
I guess this gives me an opportunity to snoop around. I walked into the first room I came across, it seemed to be a library. The room was stocked with bookcases and there were a couple of sofas in the corner of the room. It looked pretty cosy in there. I entered the room and looked at the different books that were on the shelves. I noticed a book that had Justin’s name on it, when I pulled it out there was Justin looking really young. His hair was down in his face in a swish and it wasn’t spike up, like I usually see him have it. I put the book back on the shelf and headed out of the room, into the next. The living room was small, a few pictures were hung up. A picture in particular caught my eyes. It was a picture of Ruby and I, with us were too older looking people a man and a woman. These were probably my parents. I went to look around again when there was a knock at the door that interrupted my thoughts.
I hurried to the front door and opened it, revealing a really good looking guy. He had green eyes that seemed to just light up the room. He smiled, and inside I felt a little weak. I don’t know why I was feeling like that, but I couldn’t help it. He pressed his lips to mine which surprised me. His warm lips touched mine and I backed away immediately.
“I-I have a boy-boyfriend?” I asked, I thought I was with Justin before the accident. Was I cheating on him? He looked at me concerned.
“We’ve been on a couple of dates, that doesn’t make us in a relationship. Have you hit your head or something?” He asked, pushing me a side a little and heading in the house. I noticed his accent and realised it was just like Jai’s. Australian.
“You didn’t know?” I asked. How could he have not noticed me gone for 7 months if we had only gone a couple of dates?
“You have hit your head, oh gosh! Are you okay? Have you seen a doctor?” He rushed back over to me and started checking me over.
“I was in the hospital for 7 months, of course I saw a doctor” I replied and then his eyes widened, his mouth forming an ‘o’ shape. I raised an eyebrow at him, waiting for him to explain.
“You’re not Ruby” He sighed and put his head into his hands. I shook my head. “She never told me you woke up” He shook his head slightly, looking annoyed with himself. “I’m really sorry. I’m not so great when it comes to things like this. Never kissed the sister of the girl I’m dating before by accident” He told me.
“Have we met before?” I asked.
“Oh gosh, how rude of me! I’m Beau” He held his hand out for me to shake. I took it in response and shook his head.
“I take that as a no?” I questioned, as he never really actually answered my question.
“No, of course not” He told me, confused.
“I barely know who I am, let alone who I knew before the accident. What I do know is that my name is Fae. Or at least that’s what everyone’s calling me” I laughed, trying to make light of the situation.
Beau and I sat on a sofa in the little library talking for the next hour. I told him everything that had happened in the last day and how everything was already becoming hectic. How could my life be this hectic when I only woke up yesterday morning? I didn’t think it could be this possible. We then started talking about the things we like.
“Well I like strawberry and banana smoothies, salmon pasta and bacon?” I put it as a question as I didn’t actually know if I did like bacon, I was just going by Justin’s words.
“Is that all you know?” He asked me, a frown on his lips. I nodded my head. I hadn’t had time to learn all the things I did like. “Do you know anything about yourself?” He questioned. I thought for a moment.
“I’m 21?” I sighed, he gave me a weak smile.
“I know that one already” He laughed a little. “But I’m 21 too” He said.
“It’s really annoying that I don’t know the things that I do and don’t like” I frowned. Beau gave me a reassuring smile.
“Well, maybe we could learn together” He smiled and his green eyes shone in the light, making me feel weak inside again and my stomach started doing flips. How can a guy I just met make me feel this way?
“I would like that” I smiled, and hid behind my hair as I felt my cheeks burning up.
