True Loves First Kill

Haley is your average 18 year old girl, her life seems perfectly normal until ,Matt, her former best friend returns for revenge. Charlie and Tiffany are her current best friends and go to school with her at St Divines.
But there is one secret Charlie is keeping from Haley...
Something he cant tell anyone...


11. His voice...

By the end of the movie I had tear stains all over my face and my eyes were red and puffy from crying so much, I’m really sentimental when it comes to this stuff. I was lying on Charlie’s lap with his smooth fingers stroking through my brunette locks, he turned the TV off before kissing the top of my forehead, and we stay like that, in silence, in peace and in each other’s arms.

“You never told me what happened in music” he finally spoke up and I looked up at him.

“Oh I just had social suicide and embarrassed myself you know the usual” I replied.

“Of course you did” he chuckled before continuing, “C’mon spill what did you do this time?”

I told him about how I was the only one still singing after everyone had stopped then how people started clapping to my surprise and how Mr Miller recommended I enter in the talent show but the only response I get is laughter.

“You’re such a cluts you do know that right? Plus why didn’t you tell me you could sing?! Like I knew you played guitar but I never knew you could sing!” he looked at me brows raised,

“I can’t sing that’s the reason no one knew but today my whole class found out.”

“Sing for me?”

I didn’t know if he was being serious or joking,

“If you would like to be hearing impaired, sure, other than that no.”

“Please? It’s not fair the rest of your class got to hear you” he looked at me with big eyes and pouted his lips because he knows I give in to that every time.

“My guitar is out of tune anyway” I said which turned out as more of a whisper.

“I play guitar too, remember? Ill tune it for you if you promise to sing for me?”

“Ugh fine, but you have to promise not to judge me and I’m not singing the same song because I’m so crap at it okay?”

He rolled his eyes before responding “okay I promise and fine what song?”

I thought for a bit, thinking about all the songs I know on guitar, “how about ‘when I was your man’ by Bruno Mars?”


He handed me back the guitar which he had just finished tuning with a big grin on his face, I rolled my eyes, took the guitar and sat on the edge of the bed with an excited Charlie sitting on the floor in front of me. “You know I can’t play like this right?” he looked at me confused “I can’t sing with you just staring at me it’s….it’s awkward.” He groaned before turning around and leaning on the wall beside him,

“Better?” he asked

“Much better, and remember don’t judge me, I told you-“

“Just go!!!”

I giggled closed my eyes and imagined myself in my room alone, going back to that little world of mine and before I knew it I forgot that Charlie was even there and started singing playing the melody of ‘when I was your man’ on guitar. I sat there singing for nearly four minutes until the song ended,

“…When I was your man…” I finished it off before opening my eyes to a gaping Charlie, Was that good? Was it bad? “Say something.”

“That…that was amazing, I’m blown away Haley your voice is absolutely breathtaking, and you’re truly talented, oh my gosh” I blushed at his compliments, was I actually alright? I stood up,

“Thank you, it means a lot” before giving him the guitar,

He furrowed his eyebrows “what’s this for?”

“Your go.”

He had a laughing fit before managing to talk again “wow girl you sure can make me laugh”


“Wait your being serious?”

I repeated myself again, “Sing. You heard me sing and it’s only fair that I hear you sing.”

“You see Hay, we have a problem I actually can’t sing, you on the other hand can” I rolled my eyes once again and turned around showing him I was mad at him and he let out a sigh before continuing, “but I’ll do it if you promise me you won’t judge me.”

“YAY!!” I squealed “I promise I won’t judge you, what song?” he sat there in deep concentration then finally spoke up,

“’Fix you’ by Coldplay

“Okay” He stood up and leaned against the wall and took a deep breath out before beginning to sing, I’ve never heard him sing and it is only till’ now that I wonder why. I closed my voice and listened to his voice, it was so angelic and smooth, within a minute and a bit into the song I had tears streaming down my face and I didn’t even know why. At first it was because of the goose bumps I had gotten from Charlie’s voice, but now that I listened to the lyrics it was so relatable, I had my own insecurities in so many ways and I guess I just had to find the right person to guide me, it was just that there was so much negativity rushing around in my head all at once that it had got to me. I slowly opened my eyes and looked up,

“…And I will try… to fix you…” his smooth silky voice gently finished the song off. “Say something” he said.

“That… I’m speechless. Why didn’t you ever tell me you could sing?! So here I was, your best friend who knew you for years and years, and you have so much talent and ability built up inside of you that I didn’t know of?”

He chuckled “What talent? But thanks Hay, that’s real sweet of yo-“he stopped and I looked up at him, “… are you crying?!” I wiped my eyes and shrugged my shoulders.

“I’m sorry I guess there is just so much crap to deal with it’s kind of overwhelming.”

He put the guitar down and walked over to me before wrapping his arm around me. “Everything will be okay, I promise, and I don’t break my promises” he whispered into my ear and pulling me into a tight hug. I let out a deep sigh and wrapped my hands around his waist, as we just lay there embracing each other’s warm comforting hugs, my eyes beginning to feel heavy and I slowly nodded off in Charlie’s arms.
