Summer Paradise

"I never meant to fall in love with him! It just happened!" I screamed as tears ran down my cheeks. "He was there! When everything was falling apart! He was there! You don't get to come running back trying to be the hero! Not anymore!"


5. Letting The New Light In

~I leaned against the counter top and stared at the microwave watching the popcorn pop inside. Julie was wrapped up in a blanket in her pajamas waiting for me to get done so we could start the movie. I changed into a pair of sweatpants and a tank top, letting my hair down for once. At first we were gonna go to the party like Justin said we should but then we figured that since we had our fun last night, plus the fact that we had no clue where this party was, that we should just stay home and watch some movies. "Oh Ju-" I turned my head to see Wesley walking in the back door. He was about to say Juliet but stopped. He just stood there staring at me for the longest time without saying a word, then finally the microwave buzzing broke the silence. "Is something the matter?" I asked as I grabbed the popcorn and headed into the living room. He followed closely behind me still not saying a single word. "Wesley?" Julie questioned sitting up staring at him. "Julie?" His eyes widened with confusion. "What the heck did you do to your hair?" Oh so he can speak to her, but he can't say anything to me? "I dyed it…does it look bad?" She frowned. "No of course not." He smiled at her reassuring her. "What do you think of Mandy's?" She smirked as I hit play on the movie and sat down. He took a seat and stared at me for about five minutes without saying anything, which was starting to bother the crap out of me. "Wesley?" "Oh uh.…" He scratched the back of his head turning to look at the TV. "It looks great." Just as I was about to say something the front door swung open and voices started to echo through the house. I sat the popcorn down and headed towards the door. "Kels?" I questioned causing her to turn around with a huge grin glued to her face. "You remember Harry and the others don't you?" She smiled pointing towards the boys behind her.
"Yes I do.." I mumbled. "Well since Shania wanted to be such an ass to you guys, we thought we could have a party of our own here." Hailey said walking over to us holding hands with the red head from before, I believe his name is Michael.
"Just a small one of course!" Kelsey defended.
"What's all the commotion?" Julie said walking over to us with Wesley behind her.
"I guess we're having a small party." I muttered causing Hailey and Kelsey to smile.
"Do I gotta change?" Julie frowned causing us to laugh. "Nope." I shook my head smiling at her. "Because I'm not changing either."
"Good!" She smiled and walked back to the living room where almost everyone else followed. Except for Hailey and Michael. "What's wrong?" I asked.
"My buddies are outside, we wanted to wait to make sure it was okay with you before they came in and joined us." Michael said politely.
"Oh." I muttered. "Sure let them come in." "Okay great." He smiled at me and went to tell them it was okay to come inside. Hailey watched as he walked outside, smiling the whole time I might add.
"So are you two a thing yet?" I teased causing her to blush.
"Yes he asked me out earlier…" She mumbled.
"That's great Hailey." I smiled at her, and then our attention turned towards three guys that were walking in behind Michael. "Mandy, this is Luke, Calum, and Ashton." Michael said wrapping his arm around Hailey again. I smiled softly at them before walking into the living room where the others were. Wesley moved over on the couch and patted the seat next to him with a smile. I took the seat next to him with Julie on my other side.
"So how should we start this?" Kelsey asked sitting on the floor in front of the TV looking at me. I shrugged and looked around the room at everyone. Everyone was in the middle of their own conversation to really be paying attention. "Lets play truth or dare!" Louis jumped up with a giant smile on his face.
"Uh…" Kelsey and I looked at each other nervously.
"Yeah that sounds fun!" Hailey said, she was now sitting on Michael's lap.
"Great then I'll go first!" Louis said with a devilish grin on his lips causing me and Kelsey to look at each other with worried looks, this isn't going to end well. I sat on the kitchen counter starring at the oven as the pizza was cooking. Louis, Michael, and Hailey went to the liquor store to get some booze, and the others were in the living room having a bunch of random conversations. "Is it almost done?" I turned my head to see Kelsey walking in, the look of hunger lined her face. "Almost." I smiled reassuring her. "Good!" She grinned before skipping back to the living room. "She's a hyper one isn't she?" Wesley teased passing her and walking into the kitchen. "Yes very much so." I laughed. "You gotta admit this is way better than some party." He teased. "I mean, we're bound to get drunk either way." I laughed. "Is that so bad?" He smirked. "Of course not." I smirked. "WE'RE BACK!" Louis yelled echoing through the house. "And let the fun begin." Wesley winked at me before walking back to the living room where the others were. I jumped off the counter and took the pizza out of the oven. I set in on the stove top letting it cool down. That's when I felt someone grab my wrist and turn my around. Before I could say anything I felt lips smash up against mine, this shock wave filled my body. As he pulled away I threw my hand over my mouth looking at him with a shocked face. "What was that?!" I muttered through my fingers. "Oh my god he actually did it!" Louis yelled from the hallway. "Go Wes!" Michael teased.
I looked back at Wesley who was tracing his lips with his finger. I was stunned, mostly because that was the first time someone kissed me in over two years. My attention turned to Hailey as she bumped her hip into mine playfully. I smiled at her and followed everyone back into the living room.
"So how was the kiss Mandy?" Harry grinned at me. "I bet I am a better kisser than Wesley." Louis winked at me. "I highly doubt she'd ever want to kiss you." Kelsey stuck her tongue out at him jokingly.
"I am a very attractive lovable guy thank you very much." He sassed.
"You mean asshole right?" She sassed back.
The conversation continued on but my mind was still stuck on that kiss. I looked over at Wesley, who was staring off into space not saying a word. I traced my lips with my finger, the warmth of his lips still lingered on mine. I snapped out of my thoughts when I heard the door swing open with loud voices following.
"What the hell is going on?" Shania yelled.
"We're having a party, and you're not invited." Julie smirked at Shania's displeasure look on her face.
"Excuse you?!" She growled.
"Wow!" Niall chirped looking straight past Shania at Paige who had such a faint sad look on her face. She looked and gasped when she realized it was Niall.
"You look stunning Paige!" Liam said bumping into Niall who was now blushing. I looked back at Paige who was now staring at her feet blushing like crazy. I smiled softly to myself before looking at Shania who had the most distraught look ever.
"Well keep it down." She grumbled. "I have company and we're going to bed."
"Blah blah blah." Louis said standing up behind me leaning his arm on my shoulder. Her mouth dropped in displeasure causing the others to start laughing.
"Knock knock." I turn my head to see Spencer hobbling in on his crutch. "What? A party and I wasn't invited?"
"I texted you!" Julie jumped up crossing her arms acting like she was offended.
"I tease." He smiled at her.
"Do I smell some romance in the air?" Lou said teasingly.
"Yeah it's Hailey and Michael." Luke spook up causing others to laugh.
"Speaking of those two, where are they?" Ashton asked causing everyone to look back to the chair they were cuddled up on.
"Oh my." Julie gasped.
"She's fine." I reassured.
"Well since the party has been crashed, I think it's about time we head home." Calum said, Luke and Ashton nodded agreeing.
"We'll see you guys later." Luke smiled at us as they left.
"We should probably head out as well, we have a long day tomorrow." Zayn said causing the others to frown.
"Bye beautiful." Louis said whispering in my ear before following the others out of the house. That left, Spencer and Wesley. Well and Michael because he was somewhere upstairs with Hailey I'm sure. Shania stood there with her arms crossed glaring at the guys as if expecting them to leave as well. That's when the door swung open, and Drew walked in with a bag. One of her stupid little smiles grew across her face as she wrapped her arm around his, as if trying to show him off. He looked over at me with a surprised look on his face, but quickly looked away as he followed Shania upstairs.
"She's such a bitch." Julie growled plopping back down on the couch.
"Yeah she is…" Paige mumbled. Her face looked so broken, as if she had no clue what was the right move anymore. That's when I pulled her into my arms embracing her in a hug, we hadn't hugged in years.


Mandy pulled me into a tight hug, embracing me. She hadn't hugged me in forever, not since that huge fight happened. I should never have sided with Shania, she was clearly in the wrong. I guess I was just frustrated with everything and I took it out on the wrong person. I wrapped my arms around her and felt the tears roll down my cheeks. All the lies, the secrets, the pain, just started swarming out. Why did I let things get so out of hand?
"I need some air…" I mumbled as I pulled out of her grasp. I looked at the others, and their looks of worry just bothered me. I grabbed my jacket and hurried out of the house. I looked up at the sky as the stars glimmered down on me.
"Paige?" I turn my head to see Keaton walking up towards the house.
"Keaton, right?" I said walking towards him.
"Yeah." He smiled. "Is my brother in there?"
"Yeah he is." I smiled softly at him.
"Why are you outside alone?" He frowned at me.
"I just needed some fresh air I guess…" I mumbled looking down at my feet.
"What's wrong? A pretty girl like you shouldn't be so down.' He smiled softly at me.
"Just a lot of things have gone wrong…" I turned away from him because I could feel the tears starting to form.
"Like what?" I felt him rest his hand on my shoulder. I tried to shake him off but instead he pulled me into his embrace hugging me tightly. For the second time tonight I felt the tears escape my eyes and fall down my cheeks. I tried to pull away but he just held on tighter making it tough to even want to run away. I wrapped my arms around him and just cried more, just letting it all out for once.


I sat back down on the couch staring at the front door. The room was quiet for quiet sometime, then we heard a loud scream coming from upstairs.
"What the?!" Kelsey's eyes widened.
"That's not the sound of pleasure Kels." I reassured her as I stood up.
"I'M GOING TO KILL YOU!!!!" We heard Hailey yell just moments before we heard footsteps running down the stairs. That's when Shania came rushing in with Hailey behind her in only a silky robe.
"Whoa!" We all mumbled staring at Hailey.
"I'm going to kill her." Hailey growled grabbing one of the fire pokers.
"Not that it would bother me if you did in fact kill her, but why do you want to?" Julie asked walking towards Hailey.
"I can take a guess on why." Wesley smirked causing Hailey to blush.
"Can't you guys put locks on these doors?" We all turned our heads to see Michael walking into the living room only in some sweat pants.
"Whoa." Julie mumbled.
"I'm sorry that some people don't know how to let others have privacy." I said looking straight at Shania who had a grim look on her face. "You can trust that you won't have to worry about it again."
"What's that suppose to mean?!" Shania growled.
"It means, the next time you barge into someone else's room, you can have your bags packed ready to leave." I narrowed my eyes.
"Excuse you?!" She yelled.
"You heard me." I stated.
She ran back upstairs stomping the whole way. I sighed falling back onto the couch rubbing my temples. All this fighting is giving me a migraine. Hailey and Michael went back up to her room, Kelsey yawned deciding it was time for her to go to bed.
"Back to how it began." Julie joked.
"I think it's about time I went home as well though, I have some business I need to take care of in the morning." Wesley said.
"Aww." Julie pouted.
"Spence you coming?"
"Yeah." He smiled at Julie who was pouting still. "Goodnight ladies."
"Goodnight." We both smiled at him.
After they left we both headed up to our rooms for the night. I laid down on my bed staring up at the ceiling, thinking about everything that happened tonight. Wesley kissed me, and hasn't really said much to me since then. Drew is just down the hall in bed with Shania, who decided it was perfectly okay to barge in on Hailey. No one has any respect anymore…
