When Jo had come home from her date, she couldn't stop smiling. Just from her smile I knew Barclay had treated her well so there was nothing to worry about. I was going to go to the beach with Nikki. it was going to be fun we would watch the sun set and just act like kids really. Oh and make sandcastles. Jo was going to spend the day with mum since it had been a while.
Last night I was watching movies with my sister Sydney. People make it out as if we are the bad boys. Trust me were not. We are the complete opposite. Those close to us only know that whereas others they judge us from our tattoos and piercings.
Last night James had sent a text so I knew I had to go.
By the time I was freshened up, it was 12:45. It takes me like 5 minutes to walk to Barcs so I thought id stop by to the local café.
As I woke up, I could hear the sound of faint snores. I quickly but quietly turned to see it was Tay. I sighed in relief. Sound asleep. God she looked adorable. Yesterday she had gone to help Jo get ready so at about 9pm I called her over to watch movies and this is what happened. We both fell sleep. NOTHING ELSE happened.
Today I was planning on just staying home but I had to go over to Barcs. Something told me it was to do with the bet.
Minutes later I could feel Taylor moving. She opened her eyes.
"Morning" I heard Tay say. It was just past 11.
"Morning babe." I kissed her lips.
Minutes later my door opened wide!
"Reece! Get up and com-" My mum looked at us both before turning round. "Oh im sorry."
"Mom wait. Nothing happened I swear!" I said putting my hand up in surrender.
"Hes right Mrs Bibby. We were watching a movie and I guess we both fell asleep." Taylor said.
"Ok. I believe you. Oh ahah. Both of you go freshen up and come down for breakfast. Then Taylor can go so she doesn't get in trouble." We both nodded as we got out of the bed. "And Reece. Put your hands down."
I mouthed a sorry and we went to go brush our teeth.
As I came down I heard my dad laughing and Lexi snicker.
"Whatever." I said as me and Taylor sat down. Our face were red.
By the time we finished breakfast, it was 12:35. It took a while to get to Barcs so me being lazy I asked my dad to drop me of and to also drop Taylor of. Oh and to pick Shawn up. We all knew he knew something was up because Barcs kept looking at Jake and at Jo. Mouthing 'winner.'
Shawn was nice we had went to a concert of his and performed a cover of Life Of The Party. He loved it. After that we all became friends.
We all knew we had to explain ourselves. Well Jake and Barclay.
"Right lets go" My dad said.
With that we left.
I had got a text from James saying to come to Barclays at 1pm. I didn't know why. Maybe just to play music.
I had only been in that school for 1 day and I knew something was up.
Everyone was in English language and I was sat at the back. Barclay kept looking around to see if anyone was looking so I looked down well not really. I saw him look towards Jake mouthing: 'I am the winner' then pointing to Jo. Why though?
Then later that night I got a text from Reece saying he was going to so he offered me a ride. Which I happily said yes to.
They told that if Sam or her parents asked then to just saying they wanted to show me some of their songs. Which they believed. I was going to meet them all later as Reece's parents called us over for dinner.
I had just finished my cereal and was waiting for Casey and Chris to come pick me up as we all needed to go to Barcs.
"Mom im going to Barcs! Ill see you later at about 12pm. Love you."
"Okay bye honey love you too. Be safe." She answered.
My dad was at work.
I sat at the back.
"Hey." They both replied back.
"So what do you think was so urgent?" Chris asked looking and me and Casey.
"I don't know. But If its at Barclays then something is up." Casey said.
"Yea I agree but if Barclay just tells us how his date went then that is not urgent." I replied.
Barclay live round the corner so I just walked it. When I reached the door, I saw that the guys were already here. (Keeping in mind that the whole bet thing, the girls don't know only the boys Well not Tom obviously).
"Hey James." Shawn said.
"Hi mate." I responded. Crap forgot he was here.
All the boys were sat round the sofa with Charlie sat on the floor with his back on the wall on his phone.
"Okay we are all here so what is up? Its got o be about Jake and Barc since Tom aint here." Casey said.
I looked at Barclay and nodded. He stood up and looked at the others as I stood behind him.
"I think Im in love with Jo." He said as he quickly looked down.
"WHAT?!!!" All the boys screamed as the all looked wide eye. Well besides Shawn.
"You are kidding right?" Chris said.
"Mate are you sure?" James asked
"Wait this is awesome guys." Shawn said smiling.
The rest of us looked at him with our mouths hanging.
"What?" He asked.
"I don't care. We got to tell him guys." Charlie said putting his hands up in surrender.
"Yup." We all said.
"Tell me what."
"Okay you see. Barclay is a player and well one day uhm Jake made a bet that he cant get Jo to be his girlfriend and to date her." Reece said Now it was Shawns turn to have wide eyes and his mouth hanging open. "Before you say anthing its between Jake and Barclay. None of us. We swear."
He looked at us all as we nodded.
"WHAT?!" He shouted.
"So wait you get into a bet and now youre into her? How long has it been going on?" He questioned confused.
"A few months. I was falling for her a week after her and Tom arrived." Barclay answered.
"Before you ask no Tom does not know nor do the girls. YOU Shawn cannot tell them. After we heard abut it we took no part in it whats so ever." I said.
OMG What the hell?!!
"Okay so why call us all here?" I asked confused.
"I want to end the bet. Act as if there was no bet. Please Jake. I actually want to date her now."Barclay said as he walked up to Jake.
"Fine. We will never speak of this. Not to the girls or Tom. Anyone. Deal?" He asked looking at Barc.
"Deal." They said as the hugged.
The boys sighed a relief and cheered.
"Okay so now that is over and done with what shall we do? We don't have to be at mine until 5." Reece said.
"Music?" I said. They nodded and we headed to the garage.
"Wait Shawn." I turned to see it was Barclay. "Please don't tell."
"I wont mate." And with that we followed the others.
