Jess is just starting her second semester of being a Junior in high school. To start the semester off, she volunteers to show the new kid around the school. Mainly because she gets to skip gym class, but also because she is intrigued by the idea of meeting someone new. Over the first month of school, Jess becomes really close friend with the new student, but who wouldn't become best friends with Louis Tomlinson. He's funny, entertaining, and not to mention cute, but Jess would never admit to thinking that. Louis is always there for Jess, especially when she gets heart shattering news that changes everything.


22. Twenty One.

“Hi, Jess,” my mom said to me when I walked downstairs the next morning.

“Hello,” I said, smiling.

I kiss my mom on the cheek as I sat down on the couch next to her.

“What's got you in such a good mood?” She asked.

“Louis,” we said at the same time.

I looked at her and laughed, resting my head on her shoulder.

“He makes you happy?” My mom put her arm around my shoulder.

“So happy.”

“Then we will have to invite him and his parents over for dinner tonight.”

“I'll text him to let him know,” I told my mom.

I gave her a hug and went back to my room to get my phone.

To My Lovely Louis: Congratulations! You and your parents have been invited to dinner tonight for a night full of fun, embarrassing stories, and, of course, my mom's world famous lasagna.

From My Lovely Louis: Dress code?

To My Lovely Louis: Black tie optional, of course.

From My Lovely Louis: I should have known.

To My Lovely Louis: See you then xxxxxxxxxxx. You can cash in those x's in for real kisses when you get here.

Louis sent me the thumbs up emoticon and the conversation ended. I got up to get dressed, putting on some jeans and one of Louis' shirts that I stole from him a while ago. I wanted to go see Jared, but I didn't want to go alone, in case I needed someone to be there for me. So, I did what anyone would do, and I called Louis.

What's up, chicken butt?” Louis said as he answered the phone.

Chicken butt?” I giggled.

It rhymed.”

No, it didn't.”

It so did.”

The letter 'p' and 't' do not rhyme, Louis.”

Think what you want, Jessica, but it totally rhymed.”

Okay, whatever,” I laughed. “I was wondering if you wanted to go see Jared with me? I don't want to go alone.”

Shoot, Jess. I wish I could, but I'm helping my dad fix his car.”

That's fine. I'll see you tonight?”

Yep. With all those kisses.”

I could hear the smirk on his face.

Goodbye, loser,” I smiled.

Peace,” he exclaimed, hanging up.

I chucked my phone back onto my bed, no longer feeling like leaving my house. I walked downstairs and laid down on the couch to watch television. I flipped through the channels until I found an old episode of Spongebob Squarepants and settled on that.

Are you watching Spongebob?” John asked, walking into the living room.


You're too old for cartoons,” he sat down on the couch by my feet.

I am not,” I argued, kicking his side.

Mom! Jess kicked me!”

I did not!”

Yes, you did!”

What is going on in here?” Mom asked when she came into the room.

Jess kicked me,” John said.

I barely touched him,” I sat up.

My mom rolled her eyes. “Jess, I say this in the nicest way possible, but, peace, get out of the house. I have to get things ready for tonight and fighting with your brother is not helping. Take him bowling, go to the zoo, I don't really care. Take my credit card and get out.”

Wow, thanks, mom,” I sighed, getting up. I turned to John as my mom went back to the kitchen. “Where do you want to go?”

The aquarium?”

We go there all the time.”


What if we go see a movie, and I buy you a bunch of candy?” I bargained.

Can we see whatever movie I want to see?” He asked.


Let's do this.”

Go put on your shoes, and we can leave,” I told him, ruffling his hair as he ran past me to his room.

I went to grab my sneakers from the closet, also getting a jacket, which was another item of clothing that I had stolen from Louis. I put it on, smiling at how warm and comforting it was to be enveloped by the fabric that still had a lingering scent of Louis. I grabbed my bad and keys, telling my mom that we were going to go see a movie. She handed me her credit card and told us to have fun, but to be back in time for dinner.

Hurry up, Jess. We're going to miss the movie,” John called to me.

I'm coming!” I yelled back.

I got into my car, seeing that John was already waiting in the passenger seat, and drove us to the movie theater. John talked excitedly about the superhero movie we were about to see, moving animatedly in his seat as he told me about how this character was his favorite, only because of his superpowers. I nodded along to what he was saying, smiling at how excited John was.

Who's your favorite superhero?” John asked me as I parked the car.

I think I like Thor the best,” I told him. “He's really cute.”

Ew,” John stuck his tongue out.

You won't think it's so gross when you're my age and think girls are cute.”

I will never think girls are cute.”

I laughed, pulling him close to my side as we made our way into the theater. We got out tickets and snacks, John taking me up on my offer to buy him as much candy as he wants, while I stuck to eating popcorn. I don't know how, but he managed to finish most of his candy by the time the movie was over, with me helping a little bit when he wasn't looking, and, together, we ate almost $50 worth of food.

What did you think of the movie?” John asked as I drove us home.

I actually really liked it.”

I did, too. It was amazing. All of those superheroes, saving the city, doing awesome things, oh, my gosh, it was awesome. I want to be a superhero when I'm older.

You'd make a good superhero,” I smiled over at him.

You know what, Jess?” John asked, turning to face me.


You're a superhero,” he said, his little hand resting on my arm. “My superhero.”

My heart warmed at his words, and I felt tears come to my eyes. “That means a lot to me, John.”

It's true,” he said simply, witch a shrug of the shoulders. “I love you.”

'I love you, too, Johnny,” I smiled at him as I pulled into the driveway of our house. “Now, give me a hug, you little booger.”

John came over to me and hugged me for a split second, before he ran to his room. I rolled my eyes with a laugh, and went into the kitchen to see if my mom needed any help with dinner. She told me that she needed me to make sure John made it across the street to his friend's house, and that I should start getting really after that since it was already 4:00 pm and the Tomlinson's would be over at 5:00 pm. I yelled up to John to tell him to hurry up and then watched him run across the street. After that, I went to my room and looked through my closet to find something to wear and picked out my fanciest dress, knowing that Louis would show up in a suit at the mention of this being a black tie event. The one I picked was my favorite little black dress, sheer black tights, and a pair of chunky black heel booties. I'm not going to lie, but it made my legs look fantastic.

I curled my hair, since Louis has never seen me with curly hair before, and rushed to get ready in time. It took me a little more than half an hour to do my hair, another ten minutes to do some light makeup, so by the time I was done, the doorbell was ringing.

What are you wearing?” My dad asked as I came downstairs.

I ignored him and answered the door.

Hi,” I greeted Louis and his parents.

Jess, you look ravishing this evening,” Louis told me as he entered my house.

Why, thank you. You look quite dapper yourself,” I told him.

Louis bowed while saying thank you, and I curtsied back. He was wearing a suit with his hair gelled back and everything. He looked like a sexier version of James Bond.

Our children are so weird,” my dad said as he greeted Louis' parents.

That is so true. Do you know why they are overdressed? Johannah asked.

No idea,” my dad responded.

I had stopped listening after that, because Louis had wrapped his arms around my waist, pulling me close to him. I turned to face him, my hands landing on his chest; I could feel his heart beat under my palms. His eyes sparkled as he looked at me, his smile contagious. All that mattered at that moment in time was Louis, all our surroundings fading away.

You look so good in that suit,” I told him, my hands running along his shoulders.

You look so good in that dress,” he replied. “You should wear those shoes more often.”

Oh, yeah?” I smirked at him.

Yeah. Your legs look amazing.”

Hello,” Daniel said. “Parents right here.”

Did you hear something?” Louis asked me.

It sounded like someone trying to ruin our moment,” I replied.

Some people can be so rude,” he said back.

I feel like they're trying to tell us something,” my dad said.

Louis and I ignored our parents again, and then his lips touched mine. I think that's when our parents left the room, but I can't be certain. I was lost in a world of kisses and love.

Do you want to go join our parents?” Louis asked against my lips.

Not really,” I replied.

Come on,” he smiled, his fingers lacing with mine.

We walked into the kitchen to join our parents, who were talking around the island counter. They were laughing about something when we joined them, still hand in hand.

And the couple of the hour decided to join us,” my mom said.

Is dinner ready yet?” I asked, feeling my stomach growl at the thought of food.

Almost,” my mom responded.

I want food,” I outed.

You always want food,” Louis said.

I shrugged, and the conversation carried on.

So how are you and Jess doing?” My dad asked Louis as we were eating dinner.

Louis looked at me with a smile and said, “We're good.”

Only good?” Johannah asked.

Okay, really good,” he winked at me.

Dinner continued for a while, with lots of laughter and story telling. My parents really liked Louis' parents, and they all really enjoyed sharing embarrassing stories about their children. Louis and I had plenty of moments where we blushed and had to tell our parents to stop talking, because they were sharing things that should never be shared. It got kind of awkward, but I really enjoyed hearing about Louis as a child, and I'm sure he enjoyed hearing about what I did when I was younger. So, by the time the night was over, I had laughed so many times that I had a stomach ache.

I don't want you to leave,” I told Louis as we were sitting on the living room couch. “I haven't stared at you long enough.”

Can I stay the night?” He asked me.

I'll have to ask my parents, but they should be okay with it,” I kissed him before I walked into the kitchen.

Mom,” I said as I entered the kitchen. “I have a question.”

What is it?” She asked.

No, you have to come here.”

Okay,” she laughed as she stood up and came over to me. “What's up?”

Can Louis stay the night?”

Sure, sweetie,” she smiled at me.

Thank you,” I hugged her.

Can I stay?” Louis asked as I walked back into the living room.

Duh,” I smiled.

Louis stood up when I was in front of him and hugged me. With my head on his chest, and my arms around his body, I felt that oh-so-amazing feeling throughout me.

I love you,” Louis whispered in my ear.

And I love you,” I told him.

We went upstairs to my room, and I changed into my pajamas while Louis simply stripped down to his boxers, and we climbed into my bed together. I told him that I love the way his hair looked in the quiff, smiling as he told me that he liked the way my butt looked in my dress. I called him stupid, and his arm came around my body, and I was pulled close to him. His tickled my neck as he told me that he likes my parents. I giggled and told him that the feeling is mutual, but that I liked him more.

I like falling asleep with you because my thoughts don't take over me when I'm next to you,” I told him, kissing his bare shoulder.

I'm glad that I can be there for you then,” he said.

Goodnight, Louis.”

Goodnight, Jess.”
