You & Me Against the World

Esteban only has one person who truly cares for him and that's his Tia (aunt) , but that changes when he gets sent off to live with his dad. He soon meets a troubled girl who turns out to play a big role in his life. They go through some life changing events together and begin to grow feelings in matter of days, but the problem is ... Will they make it through the obstacles that come their way.


5. Being understood.


*Liana's P.O.V*

After I left Esteban's room I couldn't sleep, so I just laid there staring up at the ceiling . These people that I'm staying with are good people. It's nice to know that there are still some good people out in this cold world.

And what's even better is I was able to talk to some one and actually have a friend . I've never really made friends because I don't really trust people, but Esteban he made me feel all warm inside. Like a regular teenage girl should feel.  

I smiled at the thought of getting to know him. He just moved here not to long ago too. He also feels alone. I'm hoping maybe I could change that. He's really cute too. His smile is just like damn boy. And then I could just get lost in his light brown eyes. And I know he thinks I'm pretty good looking too. I caught him staring at me when I was changing, but I didn't say anything . I guess I was comfortable with him. And he's not like most guys. He saw me practically naked and didn't even attempt to touch me i really appreciated that. 

My thoughts were interrupted by music playing loudly. I was drawn to the music so next thing I know I'm at the door of Esteban's room.

I stand there and ask myself, "what do I do? Do I knock and tell him i can't sleep? Or do I just sit here at his door and listen to the music that sounds so soothing? Ahhh! I don't know what to do."

I couldn't help it I just had to knock on his door. So I knock about four  times and wait for him to answer.

"Yeah?!" He shouts over the music.

I don't reply because I want him to open the door.

So he turns it down and waits for a response.

I still don't respond.

He opens the door wrapped in a towel tied at the waist. I was kind of speechless staring at his body.

"Hey there" he says with a smile

He just got out the shower and waters dripping from his hair down to his face. 

"Um... Uh... I couldn't sleep and I heard the music so I figured you were still awake and I didn't want to be alone . Is it okay if I come in?" I asked shyly .

I don't know why I was shy all of a sudden I was talking to him perfectly fine earlier. Maybe cause he was almost naked right in front of me!

"Yeah, it's cool . Come in" he said with a half smile.

I walked in and sat at the desk as he walked into the closet to get dressed.

I turn up the music and listen and closed my eyes .  I didn't realize it, but I must have been singing along to the song because Esteban sat there smiling at me.

"What?" I asked curiously.

"Wow" he says still smiling.

"What ?!" I ask again as the curiosity builds up inside.

"It's nice to find a girl that's listens to Tupac" he says and his smile gets bigger now.

"Why Is that?" I asked 

"Because not too many girls now a days listen to him or other old school rappers" he says sounding impressed

"Well if you haven't noticed I'm not like other girls, silly" I tried to say in a flirtatious way.

But I'm not used to flirting with guys. I never really met a guy that interests me.

"I sure did notice" he moved closer to me and says, "I've noticed a lot about you." 

"Like what?"

"Well I know that you can't sleep because you're so used to being out on the streets and you being inside and safe for once is all strange to you. Am I right?"

"Um... Yeaah. You are. How'd you know that?" I asked 

"Well I kind of know how you feel. But I didn't go out slanging.  When I lived with my mom I would go out walking a lot. We lived about a mile away from this lake so I would just go out and walk along the water and admire the beauty of the night. It would help me forget about the verbal abuse and all the drama my mom brought home."

"Oh. I used to do that too. But along the bay. It's really pretty at night , being able to look up at the Golden Gate Bridge and the city being all lit up, now that's a site to see. I think you would love  it! We should go one night. Well, if you'd like." I said.

"We should! " he said excitedly. 

After that we both just laid on his bed as quiet as can be and in an instance I fall asleep. His room feels more comforting than the one I'm staying in. I must've been cold because he was holding me tight with the blankets over us. I didn't mind though. I kind of liked it too. I haven't been held in a long time... Not since my mom died.  It was relieving to know that I was in a safe place... A place where I knew he wouldn't let anyone hurt me. 

I smiled like an idiot at the thought of him protecting me. But what could I do? Only a day and I was already falling for the kid.
