The Bad Boy's Reputation

Two completely opposite people; Natalia Grey the school nerd, teacher's pet. She's a big sister and role model. She believes in love at first sight. She wants the fairytale love, the one where you find your prince and live happily ever after.

Jason Summers the school bad boy, player and football player. He does what he wants, when he wants. It's his way or no way. He's the type of guy who doesn't date, doesn't believe in love nor wants it.

Talia only sees one side of Jason and that's his bad boy side; the jerk. Jason only sees one side of Talia and that's her nerdy side; geeky glasses and pulled back hair.

What happens when these two completely opposite teens are forced to see each and talk to each other every single day? What happens when the two teenagers realize there's more to the story than meets the eye? Will their opinions change? Find out in The Bad Boy's Reputation.


16. Chapter Sixteen

Natalia's POV

"Talia, your uncle is here!" Mrs. Summers yelled. I took a deep breath and nodded at myself in the mirror.

"You look nice. Where are you going?" Jason asked, as I made my way out the bedroom door.

"My uncle is taking me to meet his friend." He nodded.

Jason and I walked down the stairs, hand in hand. "If he pisses you off, call me."

"Don't worry. If he pisses me off, you'll have to get me from jail."

"Talia, you look beautiful. Jase, I may need to get some fashion sense from her." Mrs. Summers laughed.

I looked to Uncle Cile. "Are we going or not?"

"Yeah." He replied, getting up.

"Have fun." Jason smiled, as I hugged him.

"I really don't want to go with him."

"It's only for a little. And like you said, if he pisses you off, you'll be in jail." He let me go and just looked at me. "See you later, yeah? I want to ask you something when you get home."

"Should I be worried?"


Uncle Cile put his hand on my lower back and guided me out of the house. "You're not allowed to touch me." 

"Come on, T." He sighed. "Can't we just forget about that for one second?" I huffed, and rolled my eyes. "I see you're still mad at me."

"Just a little."

"You think he's dating you because he wants to, which I can tell you, is not the case."

"Yeah? And how do you know that?"

"Because your dad was exactly like that, T. He dated every girl he saw, he screwed around. He was known as the player. I don't want that to happen to you."

"Uncle Cile, all I'm asking is you just get to know Jason. Talk to him for a little. Fish, eat, watch sports, whatever guys do. But get to know him."

He sighed. "Will it make you happy?"

"For my only uncle to get to know my boyfriend? Of course. I want you two to get along."

"You're living under the same roof."

"Yeah? So what?"

"I don't want you to be on one of those teen pregnancy shows."

"I won't, Uncle Cile, you know me. I'm not like that. I wouldn't do that with someone who I've been dating for two weeks."

He sighed and nodded. "Alright, I'll get to know him more."

"Thank you."


"Before we walk in there... I want you to know it's not mine."

"What's not yours?"

"You'll see." He opened the front door, revealing the causal messy house, only this time, it smelt of bleach and women's perfume. 

"Cile, is that you?" A woman's voice asked.

A woman, maybe around Uncle Cile's age came walking into the foyer.

"Uncle Cile?" I looked to my Uncle with wide eyes.

"Serena, this is my niece, Natalia. T, this is my girlfriend, Serena."

"Oh, it's so nice to finally meet you. Cile has told me so much about you. I hear you have a sister, and a brother on the way." The stranger smiled, hugging me.

"Uncle Cile... can we talk?" He nodded and walked into what is supposed to be a dining room. The room has a table and chairs, but the table was stacked with papers, notebooks, packets.

"What the hell," I whispered.

"It's not mine."

"Then whose is it?"

"She was in a relationship seven months ago. When she found out she was pregnant, her boyfriend left her. I found her walking somewhere, so I picked her up and took her home with me. When she told me her story, I knew she was the one."

"She's pregnant, Uncle Cile."

"Glad you're not blind. Congratulations for stating the obvious." I rolled my eyes. Smart ass. "Hey, remember what you told me in the car? Get to know him better. Well, now, get to know her better."

"I hate when you use my own words against me."

"She may be pregnant, but she's an amazing woman. And she knows about my life and everyone else's life. Natalia, you would get along great with her."

We walked back out to the foyer and smiled. "Well, I made some food for today, if you're hungry."

"Yes, we're starved."

"Natalia, your uncle tells me you used to play soccer?" Serena asked.

"I did, yeah. Up until about eighth grade."

"Why did you stop, if you don't mind me asking."

"I got injured. So, I had to stop playing." She nodded and looked at Uncle Cile.

"So... Do you work?"

"I'm an accountant. Unfortunately, I'm out on maternity leave." I nodded and pushed my food around my plate.

"Do you not like dinner?"

"No, I'm just full." Uncle Cile looked at me with stern eyes. "I'm serious. I had a big lunch. Mrs. York brought Amber McDonalds today so we shared it." He nodded and left me alone after that. No more questions about eating.

"So, Cile tells me you have a boyfriend."

"I do, yeah."

"Tell me about him. What's he like?"

"He's really sweet. His name is Jason."

"When I was younger, my mom would always tell me, 'S, you need to find a lad who treats you with respect.'"

"That's Jason. Even though we've only been dating for a couple weeks, he protects me and watched out for me. Respect is one thing I always have with Jason."

"That's great. It's very rare to find that nowadays."

"Speaking of Jason, Uncle Cile, there's a wedding coming up."

"Oh dear god, who's?"

"Jason's cousins. And since Mace and I are living with them, we're invited."

"No. Absolutely not. You are not going to some random person's wedding. No."

"What? Uncle Cile, you're not being fair."

"I don't care. You're not going. I'll talk to Alexandra myself." 

"You're being so unfair! Why can't I go?! I'll be with an a-"

"don't raise your voice at me, Natalia. I said no. And no means no. Someone has to step up to be the adult in your life and obviously that woman is not doing a good job with it."

I stood up, "last time I checked, you were the cool uncle, not the bossy one. What happened to that guy?" I don't know what's going on with me today. It must be Uncle Cile's vibe, because having fits like this is not me.

"Natalia, can I come in?" Serena asked. 

"I guess me not answering means you can come in."

"Your uncle was unreasonable for doing that." I raised my eyebrows. "He doesn't know what it's like dealing with a teenager. I have a teenage sister, trust me, I know what it's like. And I think you should go to the wedding. If you're serious about Jason, then you're going to meet his family soon enough. I mean, you're already living with him and his family."

"He's never like this. I don't know why he's suddenly acting this way."

"Well... I think his senses are coming together. Maybe since your mom isn't coming home yet, he's stepping up to fulfill the duty of being someone you can trust and come to with anything. To be protective of you. Personally, I think he's jealous that you have Jason now and you don't rely on him anymore."

"I guess. But I want my cool and fun uncle back. Not the protective one."

"T, are you ready?" Uncle Cile asked, walking into the room.


"It was really nice meeting you, Natalia." Serena smiled, pulling me in for a hug.

"You too. And thank you for talking to me."


"I heard the conversation." Uncle Cile said, as we walked to the car. "And Serena is one hundred percent right. But... If you don't like the protective side of me, then I'll go back to being the cool and fun uncle. And discipline you later."

"But don't think I won't tell your mother about you and Jason."

"Uncle Cile."

"Oh, come on, like she'll come back."

"She wouldn't come back even if she found out I was dying."

"I know. And that's why I'm staying here."


"Someone has to watch over you when you need it."


Jason's POV

"Hey, how was your day?" I asked as Talia walked through the door.

"Bad in the beginning, but at the end good." She replied, sitting with me on the couch.

"Who did you meet?"

"My uncle's pregnant girlfriend."

"Oh, that's nice. But isn't your uncle like twenty-three?" She nodded.

"It's not his. But Uncle Cile did say he would go back to being the cool and fun uncle. Which means.... We have people off of our backs."

"We do, do we?" She nodded.

"I think... I should go get ready for bed."

"You little tease!" I exclaimed as she ran away. "Come back here!"

"Never!" She yelled, sprinting up the stairs.

"Babe!" I yelled, running after her. I heard her laugh, then squeal.

"I'm coming to get you!"

"Catch me first, summers!"

"Oh, I will Grey."
