Summer of Our Lives

Carmen and Alex are two sisters who are 17 and are from Orlando, Florida. Alex's parents died in a car accident when she was at the age of one. Alex's and Carmen's parents were the best of friends. In their Will, their only request was that Carmen's parents raise Alex, so that is exactly what they did. The girls both finished their Junior year in high school and are officially Seniors. Their mom is a fashion designer and their dad is a big time lawyer. As you can tell they don't really struggle with money. Anyway, Carmen and Alex's parents are letting the two of them go to Italy alone for summer vacation. What Carmen doesn't know is that Alex signed the both of them up to win a date with Austin Mahone. Who wins the contest? What happens when Austin has to bring an unexpected guest with him on his date? What hapens when that unexpected guest is Justin Bieber? Who falls for who? Guess you'll just have to read on to find out(;


15. The Question

Austin's POV

Its has been two days since we have been on tour. We are headed to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. Today is the day that I will be asking Carmen to be my girlfriend. I am so freaking nervous. What if the plan doesn't go the way I want it to? What if she said no? What if I ruin our friendship? AHHHHH! Screw the 'What ifs' I'm going to ask her out and hope for the best. 

Justin- Bro are you okay? You seem kind of out of it.

Austin- Yeah, just a bit nervous is all.

Justin- Nervous about what exactly?

Austin- Asking Carmen out

Justin- Why are you nervous?

Austin- I don't know what her answer will be

Justin- Don't worry about that. You know she likes you. everyone does. It is so obvious. Unless you do something stupid she will say yes.

Austin- Are you sure? What if she thinks we are moving too fast?

Justin- You are asking her to be your girlfriend not your wife!

Austin- I know but still

Justin- But still nothing. But on your big boy pants and make her want to say yes.

Austin- You suck at pep talks

Justin- Whatever. Did you tell her where you are going.

Austin- No. I want it to be a surprise

Justin- Where are you taking her anyway?

Austin- A beach picnic. Alex gave me the idea. She said Carmen likes things simple. 

Justin- At sunset?

Austin- Yeah. 

Justin-  Alright bro. If you need any help just tell me.

Austin- Okay thanks. Wait, can you order a dozen pink and white roses for me.

Justin- Yea.

Austin- *I wrote down a cheesy poem on a napkin and gave it to Justin* Write this on the card and make sure she gets it an hour before the date

Justin- Will do. Whats will the poem?

Austin- She loves cheesy cards.

Justin- Alrighty then. She'll love this one

Austin- Shut up! I got to go get ready

Justin- Ight

With that I walked back to my bedroom.I got into the shower and washed my hair and body. I put on black cargo pants, A black and red plaid button down shirt, a black v-neck, and red supras. I then went back into my bathroom to do my hair. I just added a little mouse to it and combed it down. I brushed my teeth, added deodorant, and Axe cologne on and was ready for what this day had in store for me.

I had to go to the store to pick up ingredients to cook Carmen dinner. I am not just going to order it out. Everything has to be perfect. I decided to make her favorite meal, Baked Ziti. I got the recipe from Alex. I also decided to bring a Cheesecake. There was no way I would be able to make one, so I just got one from an Italian bakery. I want her to like her food, not be scared to eat it ever again. After I got all the stuff needed for the meal, I called a bakery and ordered a cheesecake. 

I got back to the bus at about 2:30ish. I am preparing the sauce for the meal right now as we speak. Alex told me she hates the jar sauce with her Ziti so I am making it the way she likes. The sauce should be ready at about 5. I don't  have to get Carmen until 7:30 so I had plenty of time. Lets just hope everything goes perfect and nothing messes this up.

Carmen's POV

Today I have am going on a date with Austin. It is kind of our first since the last one was a contest. I don't actually count that as a real date. I am really excited but really nervous. He won't tell me where the heck it is we are going so I have no freaking clue what to wear. I have a feeling Alex knows but she won't tell me anything. I hate surprises. Especially when it comes to a date. I know its cute and all. but i don't know what to wear. Should i wear something casual, dressy, or something in the middle? I am just going to call him and he better answer. I put in his number. I changed it to just Austin<3 instead of his full name. her answered on the third ring. Smart boy. I din;t even give him a chance to say anything. I got straight to the point.

Carmen- What should I wear!

Austin- He Austin. Oh hey Carmen. How is your day. It is fantastic thanks for asking Carmen. How is yours.

Carmen- Freaking fantastic now tell me what to wear to this super duper secret date you planned before I lose my mind. 

Austin- Calm- I mean um just wear a sundress type thingy and shoes.

Carmen- You are no help.

Austin- It doesn't matter what you wear. You are beautiful no matter what. You could be wearing a trash bag and still take my breath away.

Carmen- You are too sweet. But seriously. Would a Cheetah print sundress with black wedges be okay?

Austin-Yes that would be fine.

Carmen- Okay see you at 7:30 

Austin- I cant wait!!

Carmen- Me either! Bye

Austin- Bye

With that I hung up and went into my room on the bus. I walked into the bathroom and scrubbed. I washed my hair thoroughly with my Treseme  Keratin Infused shampoo and conditioner. I scrubbed my body with Paris Amour body wash. I also shaved my legs because I had to wear a dress and I didn't feel like having gorilla legs. After I finish my shower, I dry myself off with my towel. I put on matching lacey cheetah print bra and underwear. I then apply deodorant before putting my dress on. I go back into my bathroom and decide to wand my hair in light, natural looking curls. I then applied foundation, cover up, mascara, black eyeliner, blush, and eye shadow with a smokey affect. I put on my Pink Chiffon body lotion and perfume. I walked out of the bathroom and looked for my black wedges, but I couldn't find them for the life of me.

Carmen- ALEX!!

Alex rushed into to my room so fast she probable left drift marks on the floor.

Alex- Whats wrong?

Carmen- Where are my black wedges?

Alex- Oh, I must of forgotten to give them back. Give me a minute.

I walked back into my room and put on my black hoop earrings, my open hearts necklace, my open hearts bracelet, and my black bow ring. 



Alex- Don't get your panties in a wad! *She tosses them to me

Carmen- My panties are wadded free. Thanks for your concern though.

Alex- Im always here

*Knock, knock, knock*

Carmen- Shut up and get the door... SHMUCK!

She laughs and goes to get the door.


Carmen- COMING!

I slip on my wedges and go to the door. There stood a delivery guy with a dozen pink and white roses.I took them and thanked the man who brought them to me. There was a little card attached to it. 

The note read:

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

These roses are for a beautiful girl,

That's why they are for you !

Love, Austin

Whats a cheese ball. I decided to call him. The phone barely rang before he picked the phone up.

Austin- Did you like the flowers?

Carmen- I loved them and the cheesy card. Thank you very much.

Austin- Anything for you. I know how much you love cheesy cards, so I decided to make you one myself.

Carmen- You are the best. I cant wait for tonight.

Austin- Me either! Only an hour to to.

Carmen- I'll see you then. I just wanted to thank you for the lovely flowers.

Austin- Once again, you are very welcome. See you soon.

With that we hung up. I hope this hour goes by realllly fast. 

Austin's POV

~1 Hour later~

It is time for me to pick Car up. I walk over to where her bus is parked and knocked on the door. After 4 knocks she opened the door. Dang she looks beautiful. She never ceases to take my breath away. How is it possible for someone to be this beautiful? She interrupted my thoughts.

Carmen- Hey there handsome *She spoke with a wink*

Austin- Hey beautiful *I couldn't help but smile at her as her cheeks turned a light shade of pink* Shall we m'lady? *I spoke bowing and offering her my hand.* 

Carmen- We shall m' kind sir *A giggle escaped those beautiful plump, pink lips*

She takes my hand and we walk to my car hand in hand. When we get to the beach, I get out of the car and get the door for Carmen. She thanks me and I take her hand in my mine, tangling our fingers together. I walk us to the spot I set up on the beach. There was candles and a little table for two sitting in the sand. There is also a picnic basket with the food I cooked in it. Carmen gasped and stared in awe.

Austin- Do you like it?

Carmen- Are you kidding?? It's beautiful. Thank you so much.

Austin- Only the best for you.

Carmen- You really are a cheese ball. Do you know that?

Austin- It comes naturally.

She laughed that million dollar laugh that gave me butterflies. I take out the Tupperware of food and place it on the dishes that were set on the table. I also poured sprite into the classes that are on the table. I pulled out Carmen's seat for her.

Carmen- Well isn't someone quite the gentleman

Austin- My mommy taught me well

Carmen- Why yes she did.

We ate and make small talk. We had just finished our dinner and we were going to have dessert. I was getting more and more nervous by the moment. Once the sun is setting that is when I will ask her and it is getting pretty close. 

Carmen- Is everything okay? You seem out of it.


Austin- Yea everything is fine.

Carmen- Okay?

Austin- Its nothing.

Carmen- Are you sure? Did I say something wrong?

Austin- Of course not.

Carmen- Then what is it?

Austin- You'll find out soon I promise.

She just sighed. I set up a blanket on the sand for us to sit on.

Austin- Come watch the sun set with me? Please?

Carmen- Okay

We sat there for 10 minutes just laying in each others arms watching the sunset. The sky is a beautiful shad of pink and orange. Now is the perfect time to ask her.

Austin- Carmen?

Carmen- Yes?

Austin- I just wanted to say that I am really glad I met you. When I am with you, i feel butterflies. Just looking at you takes my breath away. You mean everything to me. I know we haven't known each other that long, but i am slowly but surely falling for you. Would you do me the honor in being my girlfriend?

Carmen- The honor would be all mine

She threw her arms around my neck and pulled me closer to her. I pulled back a little bit and did something I have been wanting to do since I first layed eyes on her. I kissed her lips. It was a soft and gentle kiss, but it was full of electricity. I feel like I just got struck by lighting. The things this girl does to me. For the rest of the night we just layed on the blanket looking up at the stars. This night went better then perfect and i can finally call her mine!<3
