Week one of missing Luke.
It feels like the past is repeating itself.
Did i take the right decision?
What about the boys, how are they?
I've been locked in my room for the past few days trying to figure out what the hell happened to me.
A year ago i would've done anything to have the boys with me again, and now here i am, hating myself for letting them go for the second time.
I talked to my mum about it and she told me to go talk to Luke.
But how can i talk to him when he told me not to? And to add difficulty to this, he called me a bitch.
Okay i deserved it, but did he really need to call me a bitch to make a point?
I don't know what to do, i have no other friends to talk to and i sure as hell not talking to someone at work.
Work... Maybe that'll get my mind off of the boys.
I got up from my bed and rubbed my face, hopefully erasing all traces of tears or sleepiness
I ran to my bathroom to take a quick shower. I blow dried my hair then put it in a high ponytail before running back to my room
My eyes darted towards my closet and i exhaled, nodding to myself before walking to it.
I took out my red one piece swim suit, my whistle, my thongs (Flip-flops depending on your country), and my sunglasses from the shelf.
I walked back to my bed and hurriedly took of my pyjamas before putting the swim suit on.
I searched for some clothes on the ground and found my black crop top with some black skinny jeans. I put them on and took the rest of my stuff i'll be needing for the day in my hand before darting down the stairs, seeing both of my parents in the kitchen, eating breakfast
"Hi mum" I kissed her cheek and she smiled, swallowing her piece of toast before looking at me, an eyebrow raised
"Well you seem better today? What's up?" She asked and my dad hummed
"Well i have work and i thought i'd take my mind off... Things." I said.
"Good girl, taking her minds off things. You know, when i was younger, i had a girlfriend and she broke up with me. Obviously because she thought i was too cool-"
My mum and i laughed, receiving a hard glare from my dad
"I'd love to hear your story, dad, but i'll be late for work"
"when was the last time you went to work?" Mum asked
"A week and a half ago, the beach was closed due to the incident with Elliot" I sighed, bitting into the apple i had retrieved from the fridge
"Who's Elliot, and what happened?" Dad pressed
"Elliot's an employee and he got in a fight with clients, scaring everyone. So Sarah gave us a week and a half off so she could clear things with him"
"That's a long time to clear things" Mum said
"Maybe but as i said i'm going to be late for work. And anyways it was good to have a break"
Both my parents nodded and i jogged to the door, putting on my black vans on, and taking my bag with me.
I found my car keys before bolting out the house and into my car
"Good to see you again, Amber!" Sarah smiled as i walked into the cabin, where Coleen and her were.
"Hey Amber" Coleen said
"Hi. Uh, where will i be today? Lifeguarding or at the rental?"
"Lifeguarding. I had to fire Elliot so there's only Max out there. Ashley and Kyle will be at the rental. Coleen offered to help me with all the papers."
I nodded and walked to the other room where all our lockers were. I opened mine and quickly discarded my clothes before folding them and putting them in there.
I took out my sunglasses, whistle and thongs out of my bag before putting it in the locker.
I put on my stuff and walked out of the cabin and to the beach
Today's a really nice and warm day so a lot of people were there
"Amber!" I looked towards the Lifeguarding chair and saw Max waving for me to come see him.
I groaned and started walking in the sand, quickly reaching Max
"Hey." He smiled and i nodded
"Why don't you ever talk?" He asked, getting down the big chair and facing me.
"I'm not into the whole 'making friends' thing" I sighed
"Too bad, you seem fun"
I slightly smiled and he nodded before looking towards the water
"Today's a pretty busy day, but we'll be okay by ourselves. Oh and i spotted a group of guys with beers over there, would you mind taking care of that for me while i check the beach"
He smiled at me and i walked towards where he pointed, seeing three guys who were looking like straight up douches.
I sighed, walking to them and putting my sunglasses on my head
"No alcohol aloud boys, sorry" I said, as kindly as possible
"I don't really care" One said shrugging, making his friends laugh
"I don't think you heard me right, it's either you get rid of the beer or you're out of here" I said.
People started looking towards us and i felt uncomfortable already
"Look pretty girl, i don't care about the law, as you can see" the same guy said, chugging down his beer
I went to talk but some idiot beat me to it
"Hey she said no beer what the hell don't you understand?"
"Oh, mr. Max Clinton being tough and all"
"Seriously, get the hell out of here before i beat the shit out of you" He muttered, putting a hand on my arm, which i didn't like so i retrieved it from his grip, seeing a frown form on his lips
"dude, i was only drinking beer, it's not like i punched someone" He laughed
"But you disrespected her so i recommend you get the hell out of here"
"Fine, whatever, this sucked anyways." The boys took their stuff before walking away
"Thanks Max" I said as we walked back to the chair
"Why didn't you say you were an employee? It would've made them go easily"
"I don't know. But it doesn't matter because they're gone"
"Yeah you're right"
I climbed onto the chair and sat on it, looking down at Max
"I'll take it from here, you go watch on the beach"
He nodded and walked down the beach, watching everyone.
As i looked out the water, searching for anyone in danger, a group of guys came up to me
"Hey Amber!" I looked down, seeing three smiling guys and 1 looking down
I nodded and looked back up, hoping they'd leave
"Didn't know you worked here" Calum Said
"Well i do" I shrugged before getting down from the 9 foot tall chair and calling Max back in
"We kind of saw that... So how are you?" Ashton asked
"What's up?" Max asked before i could reply to Ashton
"I don't like being up there, i'm used to being on the ground"
"Fine, shorty" He laughed and i stuck my tongue out at him before walking down the beach
"Can you like, not walk away, please?" Michael asked as they cached up to me
I walked to the deck and and chuckled in exasperation
"I have to work, guys, and i don't want to get fired" I sighed, walking to the end of the deck
"I don't think your boss would fire you for talking to clients" Ashton said
"Well go talk to Max, he's really nice" I muttered
"Yeah, she's right guys, we should go" Luke said, earning a glare from Calum
I blew my whistle, seeing a bunch of teenagers throwing each other into the water, catching their attention
"Don't throw anyone into the water, please!" I called
"Sorry!" They yelled back
I nodded and turned back to Calum
"What were you going to say?"
"We want an explanation"
"Well maybe we want to know why you kicked us out of your house, i don't know" Michael sarcastically smiled and i sighed
"I realized i was getting better before you guys came back. I'm also doing fine now so i don't think we should be friends. Now if you'll excuse me, duty calls" I blew my whistle once more and nodded towards the other deck
"Don't dive off the deck, mister!"
"Why not?" Ashton asked
"Why not what?"
"Why can't we be best friends like before?" Luke asked
Well you did call me a bitch
"Because nothing will ever be like before" I muttered, pushing past them and walking to the cabin
