Falling For A Stranger

The summer before sophomore year, the two strangers had no idea that each other existed. The strangers, Isabella & Shawn, we're both teenage heart patients. Their lives were somewhat normal, except finding love was a little harder for them, since they were considered "different". That is until, a few interesting months at summer camp for only heart patients changed their lives forever. Will they fall in love with each other? Or will they keep their summer promises?


11. Getting To Know You

Cliff's POV:

The beach party started 15 minutes ago, yet Shawn & Isabella aren't here yet.

*5 minutes later*

Shawn & Isabella have arrived...wait?! Isabella looks like she's been crying, I wonder what's wrong. I guess I was staring too long, because Shawn caught me looking & looked at me with a "I'll tell you later" & worried look combined. I've never seen Shawn like that in a long, long time...I just hope everything is okay....


Three years ago, summer camp had a HUGE twist to it, like no other. Shawn's bestfriend, Lucas, was acting a little weird & none of us knew why. He was not running as much, he kept saying that it wasn't best if he ran or played soccer with the rest of us. He finally got bored with just sitting around, so he came and started playing a game of soccer. We noticed that he was losing balance & becoming out of breath easily. Then all of a sudden, he was on the floor and passed out...we were pushed out of the way to let the medics get through. Lucas was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and we haven't heard from him since, he's still alive though, he just chooses not to speak to all of the people at camp. I don't know what happened.


Shawn has a hard time dealing with all that happened. So he's trying distractions like girls, sports, hanging out with friends, and lots more. That's why he's had a girlfriend every summer, he tried to keep one girl longer...but no one reminded him of the good in this world, until he met Isabella. All the other girls stressed him out, had lots of drama, he couldn't talk to any of he friends that were girls...he has had the worst few summers ever since Lucas left. I just hope that Isabella can help him without breaking the past wide open. We'll see how well this goes.

Isabella's POV:

When we got to the beach party, Shawn looked a little jumpy. When I asked him what was wrong he'd say nothing then act more weird than usual. After 10 minutes of Shawn acting this way...I got tired of it & walked over to where no people were standing. He asked what, and I simply answered...

IP: This is how my last relationship was, and turns out he was cheating on me. I know you wouldn't do that to me, BUT I know something is wrong, and if you want us to work*pointing in between us* you have to tell me what's going on, & explain yourself, so I can understand what you're going through., Okay?

ST: I know, I just, huhhh, well you're a great girl & I haven't had a girl like you in a long, long, long time, like 2nd grade.*being funny-dramatic; I heard her giggle* haha so it makes me wonder...why now, when 3 years ago, everything went crappy, now I have the most amazing girl right her in front of me.

IP: what do you mean, when everything went crappy?

ST: it's a long story...*looking down*

IP: trust me, I've got time.

*after explanation*

ST: so that's what happened & I haven't heard from him since.

IP: oh, Lucas...yeah he's doing fine. He's actually the one who encouraged me to come here this summer. He told me that I'd meet a great group of friends & fall in love with a guy like you. I guess he's right, too. *shrugs & blushes* but anyway, yes he's doing great.

ST: WAIT?! How do you know him?

IP: he moved back to Cincinnati, the same time my family moved here for the first time. He showed me around, and introduced me to his family...we went to one party together, but that's because our parents wanted us together, but that's not gonna happen haha, he's just a really awesome friend.

ST: he knows me so well, I'm sooooo happy that he didn't keep you for himself, I would've had a hard time dealing with that haha.

IP: we kinda...umm...kissed once, but it was on a dare, so it didn't really mean anything for me.

ST: oh...well, did you ask why he doesn't come to camp with you?

IP: yeah he said it was something about having his friends judge him or see him differently... he didn't want to face the fact that he's been through a bunch of crap, he doesn't want to poor it all out on you & the guys. He wants just a few summers to himself, he said he might come & visit, but most-likely not. I'm sorry.

ST: it's ok, I just wish he'd come back. He was my bestfriend you know, *cough cough* I mean he was my bro.

IP: you don't have to pretend around me ya know.

ST: yeah, well we should get back to the party...come on. *grabs Isabella's hand & starts walking*

*after the party*

Shawn's POV:

ST: do you want me to walk you back to your cabin?

IP: Ummm no you're fine. The girls and I are going to do something before heading to the cabin. Sorry

ST: oh no, you're okay. I'll see you tomorrow, goodnight my love.

IP: haha goodnight. *blushing*

I started to walk away, when I heard the guys run up to me, yelling my name. I stopped & turned around to find my friends joking around & almost falling on their faces. Nick tripped Cliff & couldn't help myself but laugh. I walked over to Cliff to help him up; after I picked him up, I got a confused look from him.

ST: What? What's wrong?

CR: well...usually after the beach party, you're with a girl all night. Why aren't you with Isabella?

ST: well, I decided I want to take things slow with Bella. She's a nice girl & I don't want something to go extremely wrong. Plus, she's hanging with the girls tonight.

NL: wow, Shawn...you've changed. This girl has changed the way you act.

ST: well Nick, she's a great girl & I don't want to chase her away by being a jerk.

CR: good for you, dude. You've changed so you can keep her, that's something not many guys would do.

ST: haha thanks. Well what are we up to tonight?

NL: we could go to the woods & scare the kids in there.

CR: or instead of scare them, just spy & learn the camp drama.

ST: fine whatever. Race y'all. *starts running to the woods*

Nick & Cliff start running after Shawn. Not noticing that Shawn stopped at the edge of the woods, they almost ran into some trees; but they caught themselves at the last second.

CR: dude, why'd ya stop?

ST: shh! Do you hear that?

NL: is that singing? Who would be out this late, singing?

ST: I don't know, but let's find out. Stay low & stay quiet.

They start carefully going through the woods, getting closer to the campfire area. They heard the music louder, then all of a sudden the music stopped...they ducked behind a small bush. The people started talking...they sound very familiar.

NL: are those people...the girls? *whispering*

ST: I think so, but be quiet, I don't want them knowing that we are here.

The girls turned the music back on...and they started singing. I never knew they could sing. I heard Rosie's, Sabrina's, & Scarlett's voices. Then, I thought back to what Isabella told me about her hanging out with the girls. Then , I heard an empty part in the song....music stopped.

SO: Isabella?! Are you done with that phone call yet? We gotta practice this song for karaoke night!

IP: yeah, just 5 more minutes...I'm gotta tell them one last thing.

SO: okay, we'll just wait for you!

*no answer, just faint words from far away*

We heard running coming towards the campfire area...I ducked down further & the guys followed my actions. The girls asked Isabella who she was on the phone with....she replied with Lucas. I froze & continued listening; everything went silent, I looked over the bush & realized that the girls were staring at the bushes.

Rosie yelled, "Come on guys, we know you're over there."

The guys & I rose from the bushes & smiled awkwardly. The girls looked mad. They looked at each other, smirked, then started busting out laughing!

NL: why are you guys laughing.

RS: because we saw you guys coming to the campfire area. We texted Isabella, so she can come & we could confront you about spying.

CR: Pshhh we weren't spying! We were just on a walk & tripped behind the bushes & stayed there.

RS: uh huh sure. Anyways, if you want to hear us sing without hiding behind a bush, then come sit.

We all came & sat on the logged benches in front of the little mini stage that the camp made. We waited for the girls to get into position....then Isabella asked me to push the button to start the music. The intro started...then our minds were blown away when we heard the girls sing DNA by Little Mix

Does he tell you he loves you when you least expect it?

Does he flutter your heart when he kisses your neck?

No scientist or biology

It's obvious when he's holding me

It's only natural that I'm so affected, oh, oh, oh

And my heart won't beat again

If I can't feel him in my veins

No need to question, I already know

It's in his DNA


It's in his DNA

And he just takes my breath away

B-b-b-breath away

I feel it every day,

And that's what makes a man

Not hard to understand

Perfect in every way

I see it in his face

Nothing more to say

It's in his D-D-D-DNA

It's the blue in his eyes that helps me see the future

Fingerprints that leave me covered for days, yeah, hey, yeah

Now I don't have any first degree

But I know, what he does to me

No need to work it out, it's so familiar, oh, oh, oh

And my heart won't beat again

If I can't feel him in my veins

No need to question, I already know

It's in his DNA


It's in his DNA

And he just takes my breath away

B-b-b-breath away

I feel it every day,

And that's what makes a man

Not hard to understand

Perfect in every way

I see it in his face

Nothing more to say

It's in his D-D-D-DNA

It's all about his kiss

Contaminates my lips

Our energy connects

It's simple genetics

I'm the X to his Y

It's the colour of his eyes

He can do no wrong

No, he don't need to try

Made from the best

He passes all the tests

Got my heart beating fast

It's cardiac arrest

He's from a different strain

That science can't explain

I guess that's how he's made

In his d-d-d-DNA

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh woah woah woah woah

It's in his DNA


It's in his DNA

And he just takes my breath away

B-b-b-breath away

I feel it every day,

And that's what makes a man (what makes a man)

Not hard to understand (to understand)

Perfect in every way (in every way)

I see it in his face (in his face)

Nothing more to say (nothing more to say)

It's in his D-D-D-DNA

I was speechless...I loved all of it...& I especially loved Bella's voice. She did a great job! I turned to see the other guys reactions, but they weren't there. I was kinda confused...but then I saw them walking off with the girls. I didn't see Bella with them....so I got up to look for her. She was on the phone again. All I heard was "okay great! See you then!", then she came running to me. I opened my arms to be embraced in a hug. I asked her what the call was about, she just shook her head & smiled. I decided to kid around & ask her again...she just smiled & told me that I'll see when the time comes. I told her okay, then she looked down. I lifted her chin with my hand, looked her in the eyes, & kissed her softly on her lips. I think she was shocked at first because she just stood there. Then after a few seconds she kissed me back...I'm so happy to have her...just gotta make her mine first.
