I woke up with no one to be seen, not even Sam. I don't know what to do, because this isn't my house. Or where all the weirdos went, I've been looking, & I've seen no one. I see a note on the tv in the livingroom...it reads:
Good morning Beautiful😘,
I wanted to let you know that the social agent wanted to meet with all of the guys & I for a meeting. We'll be going out of breakfast after...be home to pick you up around 10:15.
I have 45 minutes to get ready...might as well dress nicely. Time to get started with getting ready. I went upstairs to get ready for a shower, I laid out my clothes, shoes, & makeup bag on Sam's bed. Walked over to the radio & turned up the volume, stepped into the shower. After cleaning myself, & singing my heart out, I decided to step out of the shower, wrap the towel around my hair & another around my body. As I walk out of the bathroom, I hear the guys downstairs singing along with the radio. I just laughed to myself, & started getting ready. I decided to wear red high-waisted shorts, a white flowy crop top that says "Story Of My Life", along with my black & tan wedges. And to top off the outfit, I decided to add some red & silver earrings that Sam got me for the first day of school, last year. I decided to dry my hair, then curl it after. I had about 5 minutes left. I decided to apply a little natural makeup, grabbed my purse & my phone charger, then started walking down the stairs. But I stopped in my tracks when I heard...
"when are you going to tell her?"
"Whenever I'm ready."
"Dude, she needs to know as soon as possible."
"I know but....shhh, what was that?"
That's when I realized I dropped my phone out of my back pocket, & it hit the wall, then the floor. I rush downstairs & said "sorry about that, I dropped my phone." & all Sam did was laugh. I wanted to know what they were talking about...but I don't know if I'm supposed to know or not... I guess I'll find out later.
Kian: so Dia, did you enjoy last night?
Dia: I'm sorry? What exactly happened after I fell asleep?
Sam: nothing you want to know of...I didn't know until I woke up this morning either.
I just shrugged my shoulders & nodded.
Dia: alright, I'm ready to go when all of you are.
I walked past them all towards the door. I could tell they were all staring at me, weirdly for that matter. I quickly turned around & whipped my hair.
Dia: what? You guys are acting weirdly.
JC: the way your dressed...what got into you this morning?
Dia: confidence...& I bought this new outfit for the summer vacation. I have plenty more outfits like this at home. *smirk*
Sam: I'm not complaining *holding his hands up in defense*
Kian: you will be, when other guys try to steal your girl.
I walked towards Sam as I said...
Dia: no one could ever steal me away *smirk*
I stopped right in front of Sam & once I said "away", I wrapped my arms around Sam's neck & planted a big kiss on his lips. He was shocked, but he soon placed his hands on my waist.
JC: eww! Stop with the PDA!
I just smirked within the kiss. I pulled away & looked at JC.
JC: not even
Kian: let's go you guys, & Dia...confidence looks good on you. *slight smile*
Sam: I agree with him love. I love the new confidence you have...but I still love the shy little girl I met on the playground. *smile*
I just quietly laughed & intertwined Sam's fingers with mine as we walked to the car. I got in the back seat with Sam & Kian. Sam was on the phone with management, while the rest of the boys talked about their tour thing. I gazed out the window & let my thoughts flow into my past....
I was sitting on a bench at my favorite park in town. It wasn't a very popular park, but I came here very, very often. The slide was tall & blue, the swings were yellow & red, & the rest of the playground was black & green. I just came to dance & sit on the bench, but for the last few days...a few kids keep picking on me, but I've never had the courage to tell them to go away & to leave me alone.
I was sitting on the bench one day, & the kids came up to me. The through me off the bench. I heard yelling...& footsteps running away. I opened my eyes & I saw a group of boys standing over me. I quickly got up & ran behind a tree.
JC: we just saved her...but she's running away from us? Why?!
Sam: look JC, I'll go talk to her.
A boy came towards me & sat down in front of me.
"The name's Sam...what's yours?"-Sam
"You have a name right? I mean you're way too pretty to not have a name."-Sam
"Umm, first off, thank you...I think you're the only guy who thinks that. Second of all, my name is Dia."-Dia
"Day? Like D-A-Y?"-Sam
"No no, uh Dia, like D-I-A...it's short for Diamond."-Dia
"Well you sure are a Diamond...lets go meet the rest of the guys okay?"-Sam
I nod my head, get up from the tree, fixed my clothes & walked beside Sam towards the group of boys.
"Boys, this is Diamond...Dia for short. She is...wait? How old are you?"-Sam
"15...we are all older than you, except for Connor, the quiet one over there."-Sam
I nod my head & wave to Connor.
"Well how about you come hangout with us? Those kids won't be bothering you anymore."-Sam
"Are you sure?"-Dia
"Of course. We need a shy, beautiful girl to keep us weirdos in line"-Sam
I laughed & smiled...
"Oh look, she smiles."-JC
Connor hit the top of JC's head, causing him to whimpering sound. I smiled again, & agreed with Sam.
"I guess I'll come with you guys."-Dia
The boys cheered & started walking towards the skatepark. Sam stayed behind with me & walked next to me. He had his arm around my shoulders. I didn't notice, but when we got to the skatepark, his arm was wrapped around my waist. I didn't mind, but I guess the guys thought it was something because they started....
*END OF FLASHBACK*
JC: Dia?? We've been saying your name for the past 5 minutes.
Dia: sorry I was just remembering something.
Kian: remembering what?
Dia: I-it's nothing. Just one of the best memories in my life, & whatever Sam said in the house reminded me of it.
Sam: guys we're here. Hey Diamond, I need to talk to you.
Dia: alright Samuel.
We all pile out of the car & the guys walk into the restaurant. Sam pulls me aside & looks kinda serious.
Sam: Diamond...are you okay with missing camp, if it means you get to come with us on tour?
I think for a minute....
Dia: like that'd be one of the weeks you guys are free?
Sam: no no, I talked to management. They said that if you don't have to leave the group very often, you'll be fine with coming with us. I told them about our usual vacations & the kids that used to pick on you...so they said that I'd be a great idea if you come with us, so you don't fell alone this summer.
Dia: uhhh I think I'll be okay with it. I'd just need to talk to the girls from camp, before I leave...ya know so they know why I won't be there.
Sam: yes! My Diamond is coming with me! I mean, uh us. Haha
Dia: haha yes Samuel, so I'm coming with you guys. Leaving next week, correct?
Sam nods his head & points to the guys in the window. They were making faces at us. I start laughing & I kinda sorta lost my balance; I fell into Sam & caused everyone to laugh at me. My face turned bright red. Sam got up & held out his hand to help me up.
Dia: I'm sorry. I'm so clumsy. *embarrassed*
Sam: well since the first day we met...I told you I'd catch you when you fall. You've certainly caught me.
Dia: you're so cheesy Samuel...I love it. .*peck Sam's lips*
Sam just laughed & intertwined our fingers as we walked into the restaurant.
