11. Chapter 11


I'm woken by a phone call. It feels like 4am, but it turns out its 8:20 and my mom is calling me. I sit up and start to remember last night. What a fail it was.

I'm in Ariel's bed, but nothing happened. What a waste of a date. She's still asleep. I get changed while answering the phone. Who said guys couldn't multitask.

"What's up?" I say, yawning over the phone.

"What's up?" She repeats in a more moaning and irritated voice. "You've been out all night and you didn't come home! Please tell me your on your way to school" she says. It's so annoying having parents that care about what your doing all the time.

"Chill out, I just crashed at... Chase's, I'm on the way to school now" I say. She seems to accept that and then hangs up. I didn't want to tell her I was round a girls house, because she would just accuse me of being a man whore. Which I'm not.

"Who was that?" Ariel says, her voice still waking up. I was really hoping I could just creep out, without her realising.

"Just my mom" I say, wishing she would fall back to sleep.

"Why did you tell her you were at Chase's? Are you like... Embarrassed to be seen with me?" She asks, acting upset. There's no way she actually liked me, she just needed someone to make her look good. She's the year below, what was I thinking, she's bad for my image. She's also the most annoying chick I've asked on a date in ages.

"Erm... Yeah kind of" I say, I may sound like a jerk, but at least I'm telling her the truth. She doesn't seem to be able to say anything in response.

"So, see you round" I say, walking out. She doesn't dare have a go at me. I guess that's one thing I like about Taylor, in this situation she would have a full on argument with me.

I would have felt bad if I'd slept with Ariel, but I didn't, we only kissed a bit, so I don't care.

I end up being late for school, as I have to sneak home and get changed. Mr Jenks won't be happy that I completely missed Form.

When I get there, it turns out I've missed half my History lesson. Which is kind of annoying, as Taylor's in my class. I would have enjoyed talking to her about last night, or more like taunting her about last night. She really surprised me, I bet Chase regrets calling her a prude the other week. She was clearly experienced with guys. It wouldn't surprise me if they hooked up.

"So did you miss my company?" I say, as she walks out of history. I decided to skip the rest of the lesson, instead of being yelled at for being late. She looks around, wondering where she heard that from. She knows it's me, I can tell how pissed she gets at the sound of my voice. She turns round and sees me leaning against the wall.

"Not in the slightest" she says. I love her accent, every time I hear it I feel like imitating it in my head.

"I don't believe you for a second" I say. She pulls a face at me, suggesting that I'm being big headed again. I only act like that because she enjoys it, even though she doesn't admit it. Instead of putting up with my company, she walks off.

"Hey come on, you don't hate me that much right?" I say, following her.

"Yes I do actually" she says, attempting to walk faster.

"So what happened with you and Chase then?" I ask, pulling her to a stop. I don't know why I care.

"Hmm... Well... It's actually none of your business" she snaps. She thinks that when she's sassy it will piss me off, but it doesn't, if anything it makes me more attracted to her.

"Does that mean nothing happened?" I ask. She looks like she doesn't want to share the details with me. But that's understandable, considering she hates me.

"Like I said, it's none of your business, so butt out" she shouts, in my face.

"Oh, so you did hook up then?" I say, just to annoy her some more. I know she won't answer.

"No! I'm not that easy, we just fooled around a bit, happy now?" She says, rolling her eyes.

"I never said you were easy" I say, she looks irritated that that's the only thing I got from her reply.

"How's Ariel anyway? I'm assuming you took her virginity last night?" She asks. My guess, is that she's jealous.

"Why do you care?" I say, raising my eyebrows.

"I don't! Why do you care about me and Chase?" She asks.

"Maybe I want to know what your capable of" I say. It doesn't make sense, but it does its job in annoying her.

"Oh please" she says, effortlessly giving me a 'pathetic laugh'.

"Well... when Chase is done with you, you know where I'll be" I say, pressing my lips together, attempting to keep in a smirk. I really do enjoy winding her up.

"Oh GOD! Your such a creepy, weird, sleeping around... tosser" she says, her awkward British comebacks are sort of adorable. I repeat what she said, showing how silly it sounded.

"I'll leave you alone then" I say, walking off.

"Hey! How dare you walk away from me! That is not happening" she says, pulling me back and then walking away. Her competitive personality is another reason I find her so awesome. I get a good view of her ass when she walks away. I don't think she would be very happy to see me staring.

After last lesson, I wind up in detention, thankfully I'm joined by Chase. He hasn't spoken much about last night. Usually he would be bragging by now.

"So... What happened last night?" I ask, even though Taylor already told me.

"Taylor came back to mine and we just messed around a bit" he says.

"Why didn't you hook up with her?" I ask, I would have thought that was the only thing on his mind.

"She wouldn't let me, she's playing hard to get I swear" he says. I wonder if she is playing hard to get or if she just isn't that into him.

"Yep, that wouldn't surprise me" I say, Taylor does not seem like the sort of girl to have a one night stand on the first date.

"She was torturing me, did you see how good she looked last night?" Chase says, leaning back in his chair.

"Ah, talking about girls again are we? No surprise there" someone says walking in, not giving me a chance to reply. I turn around and see Zara leaning against the door frame, with her arms crossed.

"Why you jealous?" Chase asks, trying to hold in a smile. What is it with those two? I know they hooked up a while ago, I can't even imagine it. They hate each other that much. It's like there's still something going on between them, should Taylor know about it?

"Please, you wish" she says, slumping into the desk in front of ours.

"I'm sorry, what the hell are you doing in detention?" I ask, almost laughing. Zara never gets in trouble.

"Ask him" she says, turning around and giving Chase quite a glare. I look at him for an explanation.

"Ask her" he says.

"You two are like a pair of kids" I say, rolling my eyes and laughing.

"He's the immature one, it's your fault I'm here!" She moans.

"No one asked you to start arguing with me in Drama" he says, innocently shaking his head.

"No one asked you to... Do what you did" She says. What did he do?

"Right shut up the pair of you" Mr Jenks says, shutting the door behind him. It looks like he's supervising this detention. There's only three other people in here, but they're regulars.

"It's her you need to tell to shut up" Chase says.

"Her has a name" Zara snaps.

"Okay, Chase you can sit at the front... Come on, move... Now!" Mr Jenks says, you would think he's shouting, but he's not, he just looks tired of everyone's arguing.

"Thanks sir" Zara says, smirking at Chase while he moves.

"Quiet Zara" he says, with his fingers on his forehead. I think he hates school kids today.

After the bell goes, Zara soon rushes off. I walk out with Chase.

"What's happened between you guys now?" I ask, so confused.

"Nothing" he says.

"Have you hooked up with her again?" I ask, hoping he will say no. If something is going on with them, he's meant to be seeing Taylor. I feel guilty as her brother said that the last guy she was with cheated on her. I don't know why someone would cheat on Taylor, she's literally flawless, if she was my girlfriend I wouldn't want to sleep with anyone else.

"No I haven't" he says, I know he's lying.

"Do you like her or something?" I ask.

"Like her? No course not" he says, laughing.

"What did you do to her in drama?" I say, finding it funny, she was ready to kill him earlier.

"I just grabbed her ass as a joke" he says.

"Haha fair enough" I laugh. Who knows what's going on between them.

After leaving the surf hut, all I can think about on the way home, is Chase, Taylor and Zara. Not that I care, but I think Taylor should know if there's something going on between the other two.

I end up taking a detour, leading me down Taylor's street. It's in the opposite direction. It's not like I can call her, she wouldn't answer if she knew it was me. Her front door is open, but I knock anyway.

"Alright Leo" someone says, it's too much of a friendly welcome for it to be Taylor.

"Zac, yeah good thanks, is Taylor in?" I ask.

"Should've known you weren't here to see me" he jokes. "You've just missed her, some guy picked her up" he says. Some guy must have been Chase. It was probably last minute considering he didn't mention it in detention.

"Ok no worries" I say.

"I'll tell her you stopped by" he replies. I say thanks and go to leave.

"Hey I'm going to a beach party with some mates from college if you wanna come?" He offers.

"Erm, yeah okay then" I say. That's just what I need, an excuse to get close to Taylor, if I'm mates with her brother, I'll be seeing her a lot more.

I meet him at the address he mentioned. It's someone's house that backs on to the beach.

"You'll probably know more people here than me" Zac says.

"Why do you say that?" I ask.

"Tay said your popular and have a lot of friends" he says.

"Oh did she now" I say, smiling to myself.

I'm introduced to some of his mates. There's quite a few hot college girls here. But I can't stop thinking about Taylor. Especially how she looked last night, I couldn't help staring at her chest. I suddenly stop thinking about her when I see a familiar girl at the drinks table.

"Oh man" I moan to myself.

"What is it?" Zac asks.

"My exes sister is here" I say, pointing to Hannah.

"Wow she's pretty hot" Zac says, his eyes widening. I don't agree with him, she's got curves, but she's so fake, just like Mia.

"Man please go say hi" he asks, his friends seem to agree.

"Seriously, I dumped her sister the other week" I say, making them laugh.

"Why? If she looks anything like her sister, why would you dump her?" Joe, one of Zac's friends says.

"She was an annoying bitch and her only quality was in the bedroom" I say, they all agree. I'm sure if any girl heard me say that, they would call me a jerk.

"Grab me a beer and I'll go over" I say. Two minutes later and someone hands me a drink.

"Okay then" I sigh, walking over. She's got a group of friends surrounding her already.

"Fancy seeing you here Han" I say. She turns around, recognising my voice immediately.

"Leo, you've got some cheek" she says, still sounding friendly.

"Why because of Mia?" I say, pulling a face. Coming over here was a bad idea.

"Yes, you know she's dying to get back with you" she says.

"I don't really care, sorry Han but I dumped your sister for a reason" I say, expecting a slap right about now.

"I know you did, my dear little sister can be a bit of a bitch" she says, sarcastically. She doesn't seem very protective over Mia. Maybe she's just drunk.

"She is a bitch all the time" I say under my breath.

"Who do we have here then?" She says. She pushes her chest out, it's the exact same thing Mia does.

"This is Zac.." I say, introducing them all. It's lucky I remember their names.

"Hannah right? Nice to meet you" he says, getting flirty already. I suppose girls round here find British accents cute. I find Taylor's accent hot. I have a few shots with them.

About an hour later, I go to talk to some other people, because Hannah and Zac have got off with each other.

Next time I check its 12:30. I don't know where the times gone, but it's been great. My head is sort of spinning. I've had a college chick flirting with me all night, but for some reason I actually don't want to hook up with her.

"It's not going to happen alright" I say, pushing her off my lap.

I stumble outside and find Joe and Zac. Zac is leaning on him for support. He's off his face. I sort of am too, but I can see where I'm walking.

"He needs to go home, before he's sick" Joe laughs.

"Come here, I'll take him" I say, shoving his arm over my shoulder. He scrapes his shoes against the street the whole way back.

The entire time he's going on about Hannah and how he got her number. There's no point in putting him off her, he won't remember this conversation.

"Did you see her ass?" He says, with a surprised look.

"Yep" I laugh. Hannah isn't that amazing, her hair length is fake, her face is fake and I'm pretty sure she's had a boob job.

"So what's the deal with you and Tay? You broke up with your girlfriend so you could hook up with my sister, right?" He says, slurring his words.

"Not to make myself sound like an ass, but I wouldn't care if I had a girl or not, I do what I want" I say.

"I'm guessing that's why she hates you then" he says, laughing.

"Yeah probably" I say, I sort of care that Taylor seems to hate me. She thinks I'm a bad person, but I'm not deep down.

I walk up to the door and realise it's locked.

"Where's your key?" I ask.

"Crap" he says, I'm guessing that means he didn't bring one.

"Tay!" He shouts, tapping on the door, which is actually quite a loud noise. I tell him to shut up before he wakes up the whole street. I think about ringing Taylor, but there's no need when she comes to the door five seconds later. She looks a mix between pissed off and confused. It's a good job she's still up considering it's nearly half one.

"What on earth is going on? What the hell are you doing here?" She demands. She's wearing shorts and a pyjama top, that she still looks good in. Her hair draped round her neck with a lose curl on the other side.

"Returning your drunk brother" I say, I'm not as bad as him, I can stand on my own two feet.

"Why did you get my brother drunk?" She moans.

"Actually he invited me out!" I say, acting completely innocent. Nobody told him to drink what he did. She can tell I'm tipsy.

"Whatever! Give him here" she says.

"Show me to his room I'll help him there" I say, trying to be helpful, Zac is quite tall so it'll be hard for Taylor to help him stumble up the stairs.

"No it's fine!" She says. I go with it and give his arm to her. Straight away he leans on her, almost pushing her over.

"Sure you don't want my help?" I say, smirking at her confidence.

"Fine" she says, shoving Zac's arm over my shoulder and taking his other arm. Just as we get up the first stair case, I notice Zac go paler.

"Think... Think I'm gonna be" he says. Taylor pushes him round the corner and into the toilet. A minute later, I feel put off by hearing him hurling in the loo.

"I can't believe you've done this, he's a recovering alcoholic" she says and even though it's not my fault, I immediately feel bad.

"I'm sorry... I didn't know... I wouldn't have–" I begin.

"Okay calm it, I'm joking, he's not" she says, laughing. My eyes are a bit blurred but I catch a glimpse of her pretty smile, it's unusual for me to see, she's always yelling in my face.

"That really wasn't funny" I say, laughing anyway.

"Why are you laughing then?" She says, raising her eyebrows at me.

"I love it when your like this" I say, slowly getting closer to her.

"Like what?" She asks, confused.

"Like a piss taker" I laugh.

"That's something you are all the time" she says, actually not shouting at me for once.

"You look good by the way" I say, making her look awkward.

"I'm wearing pjs" she says laughing.

"Yeah well you look good in anything, but you'd look better in nothing" I say, purposely being flirty. I'm waiting for her anger to hit me now.

"Shut up" she says, pushing me away and shaking her head. When she pushes my chest I grab her hand and pull her closer. If she were as tall as me then her lips would be a centimetre from mine.

"Leo I'm seeing Chase this isn't going to happen" she says, I get the feeling that she's nervous, is it me that makes her nervous?

"If you haven't noticed, I don't care" I say, rolling my head. I want her, I've made that pretty clear.

"Well I do and I can smell the alcohol on you, how much have you had?" She asks, changing the subject.

"Not much, I'll leave you to look after your brother, catch you tomorrow yeah?" I say, being flirty with her again.

"Give me a second" she says, going into the other room. She comes back with a pair of converse and a car key.

"What?" I say, my vision is all over the place and I think she can tell.

"Come on, I'm driving you home" she says.

"No I'm... I'm fine, I'll walk" I say.

"No you won't, you'll probably end up walking in the middle of the road" she says, it's sweet that she cares.

"No look after Zac... I'll be fine" I insist.

"No, shut up! I'm driving you home, that's the end of it" she says. I love this side of her, she's so feisty.

"Okay then" I say, giving up.

We get outside and she laughs at me tripping over the front step, I swear the floor was moving.

"Didn't know you had a car" I say, moving on from me making an idiot of myself.

"I don't, this is my Dad's Jeep, he doesn't trust me to have my own" she says, starting the car.

"Why's that?" I say, I'm actually interested to know. She opened up to me about her Mom leaving, but that was when she was drunk.

"Long story for another time" she says.

Five minutes later she pulls up outside my house.

"Thanks, you didn't have to drive me" I say.

"Yes I did, now get out you idiot" she says, returning to her normal vocal self.

"I'm not as bad as you think I am" I say.

"Yes you are!" She says, widening her eyes.

"No I'm not" I insist. She looks at me for a second and then returns her eyes to her lap. Without hesitating I lean closer to her and kiss her. Maybe it's the drink, but it's something I've wanted to do for a while. It hardly lasts, as she pulls away immediately.

"Oh my god get out, I'm seeing Chase! This isn't going to happen!" She snaps, looking embarrassed for some reason.

"Yeah it is, see you soon... Parker" I say, annoying her once more as I get out the car. She drives off straight away. I probably shouldn't have wound her up right before she drove off.

I pull my shirt off as I go upstairs and fall onto my bed. Taylor loves to play hard to get, but this isn't over.
