53. His Kitten's Tears

Kalei's POV

I was sitting on Michael's front lawn twirling the grass around my fingers as tears fell down my face. Why did I do that? Didn't I want him to kiss me? In the near distance, I heard the boys yelling at Michael, Michael yelling back.

"Luke told me to! He said to surprise her! She loves surprises, I don't know why she reacted like that!" Michael yelled.

"Yeah but she doesn't like much attention!" Luke yelled back.

"Yeah, and she's still getting used to having a boyfriend! Haven't you noticed her flinching every time you touch her?" Calum's voice chimed in.

"Yeah, that's weird, isn't it?" Ashton said.

"M-maybe I should go talk to her" Michael's voice was shaking.

A little closer, I heard the door open and close. A body sat next to me. I looked over to see a single tear try to fall off Michael's face, but he wiped it away. It was dead silent before he spoke.

"What happened in there?" His voice still shook.

"I-I don't know, it-it was just so sudden" I whimpered.

"I'm sorry, I just-"

"No, it's not your fault. It's mine, I'm the one who's- scrrd tu lvv" I said into my hand, hesitantly.

"What?"

"I'm the one- scrdd hmnfser"

"Kalei..."

"I'm scareD TO LOVE, MICHAEL!" I stood up and paced his lawn. Serious déjà vu right now.

"Sc-scared to love?" Now Michael was standing. He walked toward me and wrapped me in his arms. "Is that why-"

"Yes" I broke down in his arms.

"Why are you so scared? Don't you trust me?" Michael asked, sounding hurt.

"More than anyone in the world" I whined.

"Then why are you so scared?"

"I've only had one other boyfriend before you" I admitted. "Things didn't exactly end on mutual terms. Oh, who am I kidding, nothing was on mutual terms. He- he, um, he was- he was abusive"

"Abusive?!" Michael stiffened. "What sick freak would do this? Who is this monster?!"

"It's nothing. He's- he's in America." I pulled away and wiped my tears. "Besides, it was my fault anyway. I wouldn't listen to him. He always tried to tie me down and keep me at his house. I always wanted to be free and just go on spontaneous adventures, usually dangerous ones."

"There's nothing wrong with that, your boyfriend was just a prick" He kissed the top of my head as I almost collapsed.

"Th-thanks" I sniffed. I checked my phone, and it was really late. "I-I should really go now. Is Jaden still inside?"

"Yeah," he grunted. "She's trying to get close to Luke and he feels so weird about it"

"You really don't like her, do you?" I laughed. "I guess I should grab her then" I turned around, ready to go back inside, but Michael grabbed my arm and whipped me back around to meet him face-to-face.

"There's no one out here other than you and me" He whispered into my hair. "So there's no one paying attention to us" I stiffened. "So I have the right to do this"

Once again, Michael pressed his lips against mine. At first, I wanted to pull away from how sudden. But he deepened the kiss, and washed away my doubts.
