40. New Years and Taylor Swift...
40th chapter already? Where did time go?
I take one last deep breath,
"1." Michael's hands cupped my cheeks as his lips crashed onto mine, spark and fireworks flying everywhere.. Literally.
Everything disappeared from around me like it was only Michael and I even though we were surrounded by other making out couples who were probably thinking the same thing but whatever. Our lips worked in sync before pulling off each other and heading outside and into the cool, night air, "2015.." I said as I watched the fireworks go off in the sky, my head leaning on Michael's shoulder as he typed away on his phone. Probably tweeting about the new year or something.
He laughed before typing back on his phone. I smiled up at him and he didn't even glance my way, "Who you chatting to?" I smiled and he held up his index finger before placing it on his lips and softly shushing me and heading back to his phone where he started laugh again. I got on my tippy toes, which for a pregnant lady, is really hard and tried to sneak a peak at what he was doing but he just frowned and pulled his phone away and turned his back to me.
"Not now, babe. God.." He said, obviously annoyed. I bit down on my lip as I looked down at my baby belly, my hand resting on it as I watched a tear fall onto my shirt and soak into the fabric.
"At least you still love me, Imogen." I whispered as I turned around and tried to head inside but instead I crashed into someone.. Oh, it was Luke, "Oh, hey, Luke." I said anms I quickly wiped away my couple of tears before looking up at him, a fake smile plastered onto my face as I heard Michael chuckle in the background.
"Hey, why aren't you with Michael?" He asked and I felt an arm slither around my waist and a kiss on my neck before another was placed on my cheek, "Nevermind." He laughed as Maya came out next to him, their hands connecting as they kissed each other.
"Sorry, baby. I was just doing uhm, stuff.." Liar. Fucking liar. I nodded and sighed as Luke and Maya looked between each other, before shrugging their shoulders, "Aww, what's up, darling?" He said as he twirled me around in his arms so I was now facing him and he kissed me on the nose as his phone buzzed and he immedietly went for it and pulled away from me as a smile arose on his face as his finger worked away before slidding it back into his back pocket, chuckling.
His arms wrapped around me again as he leaned down and pressed his lips against mine for a quick kiss before ducking his head and sucking on my neck, "I'm tired, Mikey.. Can we- can we just go home?" I asked and he looked up at me, furrowing his eyebrows before nodding and heading inside and saying goodbye to his mates.
"Are you okay, Ellyse?" Maya asked as she came up to me, her hands on my shoulders as I crossed my arms, sighed and nodded. She smirked, "I know you're lying. Come on, tell me." She said but I shook my head seeing Michael walking up to us and she got the hint, walking back to Luke.
"Ready, babe?" He asked as he slung his arm around my shoulders as we walked back to the car, him smirking down at his phone.
"Who ya chatting to?" I asked and he glanced my way for a sec, at least this is a start, before tapping away for a few more seconds before slidding his phone back into his back pocket and opening the door for me and letting me in and closing it behind me before coming around into the car too.
"Taylor." He replied. So much detail, thanks Michael.. Taylor who?
"As in, Taylor Swift?" I said and he nodded as he pulled his phone once more and doing the same old thing. I sighed and rolled my eyes as he ignored me. I coughed the fakest cough ever and that caught his attention.
"Oh! Uh, yeah. Taylor Swift." With just enough light from the street lamps, I could notice a light tint of red on his cheeks at the mention of her name which made ny heart feel like it had shattered. I had a big lump in my throat and tears filled my eyes but I blinked them back.
No. No. Michael wouldn't do this to me. Mikey loves me, I mean he wouldn't propose to me if he didn't love me. Okay. Just forget about it Ellyse.
"Love you, babe." Michael said as we started to drive, his hand resting on my thigh. I smiled lightly as I connected ny hand with his. See? He does love me. God, I was so stupid to think he didn't, "Oh, wait. Hold on. I just got another text from her, hold on a second." He said as we pulled over on the side of the road. Right...
Thank you so much for reading! Ooo, Mikey..
