Summer Love

Sage Todd gets shipped off to her grandmothers house for the summer when Sage's dad, Max, gets arrested and put in jail. Sage is just ready for a relaxing summer, dad-free. But it's anything but relaxing when she's put to work at her Grandmother's ice cream shop with the most annoying human on the planet, Collin Carson. He's everything that she's not, care-free and happy.

But soon she's admitting her feelings, and letting her walls fall down. Everything feels perfect. But what happens when her dad breaks out of prison and begs her to run away with him? Family sticks together, right? Or will she stay with Collin, who's always been there for her? Is it just a summer fling? Or is it true love?


3. Chapter Three:

"Who is this?" I asked, now highly alert.

"I'm your dad's friend. He wanted to let you know that he's sorry and when the time is right he will come for you. And you better be ready." 

Then the line went dead. I let out a humorless laugh.

"He wants me to be ready." I muttered quietly.

My dad wasn't the nicest person to begin with, but his first time in jail changed him. He became sharper, more demanding. I never worried about it unless it came back to me.

Then my mom left him when I was fifteen. He wasn't the soft loving dad any longer. 

We had a complicated relationship. He did whatever he wanted and in return I didn't question it. 

But when I needed him for parent teacher conferences or to sign a paper he complied.

My only guess is that this was about something more than a simple bank robbery. I let out an annoyed grunt and went into the bathroom, brushing my teeth, before going back into my room and changing into my pajamas. 

I crawled into bed and sighed. Why does life have to be so complicated? 

Soon after I fell into a troubled sleep.


"She's not waking up, should we throw water on her?" As soon as those words registered in my mind I sat straight up.

"I'm up, I'm up!" I exclaimed, rubbing my eyes. I looked over to see and amused Collin and an annoyed Kira.

"We're leaving in ten minutes, hurry up." Kira snapped before walking out of the room. I rolled my eyes before throwing the covers off of me and exposing my Star Wars pajamas, which Collin seemed to think was funny.

"What?" I asked as he laughed. I stood up and put a hand on my hip. 

"I don't know any other girls that have Yoda pajamas." He got out through laughs. I huffed at him before grabbing some clothes and going into the bathroom an changing. I threw my hair up into a ponytail and a tiny bit of mascara to make my hazel brown eyes just a little brighter. 

When I was decent I walked back into my room where Collin was sprawled out on my bed. I needed to make my bed, so I began trying to push him off. 

He didn't budge. "Moooove." I complained. He gave me a cheeky smiled. 

"Make me." He taunted. I pushed again. He didn't move.

I crossed my arms and sighed. "Fatty." I grumbled softly.

He lifted up his shirt to reveal a six pack stomach. "I don't think so, weakling." I rolled my eyes and threw my hands up. 

"I give up!" I exclaimed, walking out of my room. I ran down the stairs to see Kira talking to Sally. As soon as she saw me, a disgusted look overcame her face. Oh please, I can't possibly look that bad. 

"Good morning sweetie!" Sally said cheerfully, tossing me a red apple. I cought it with a smile and took a bite. Collins footsteps thundered behind me. 

"Let's go!" He announced, stepping down in front of me and grabbing my hand. 

I reluctlanly followed him and Kira out the door and to his truck where Kira quickly claimed the front seat. I got in the back and wrinkled my nose at the stench that was overwhelming me. 

"Either someone farted, or your car really stinks, Collin." I said, pinching my nose. 

"You're probably just now smelling your own stench." Kira muttered, inspecting her nails. 

"Or yours." I grumbled, crossing my arms and looking out the window. Collin looked at us cautiously. 

"We'll just drop Kira off, then we can go to work, ok Sage?" Collin asked, pulling out of the driveway. 

"Fine." I said, wondering bitterly why she couldn't walk.

After a few minutes of a tense silence, we pulled into a driveway. Kira's house was pretty with dark brown siding and the same color roof. There was a stone path up to the door and a small deck that protruded from the side of the house.

When the car came to a stop Kira hopped out and smiled at Collin.

"I'll see you tomorrow! Bye." She said sweetly. Then she scowled at me before walking to her house. 

"Kira can be nice, I promise." Collin said sincerely as he pulled out of the driveway. I scoffed.

"Maybe to you." I said, crossing my arms and looking out of the window.

"Why was she even with you?" I said after a few minutes. He sighed.

"Kira is a runner, and her parents are paying me to train her for her races." Collin said, with a disgusted look on his face. 

"What?" I asked, confused.

"Kira really sucks at running." He admitted. With that I bursted out laughing. 

"How can you suck at running?" I asked in between fits of laughter.

He chuckled. "Only Kira would know." 

A/N I wasn't originally going to cut off here, but I feel like I could do more in the next chapter. The next chapter should come soon!
