Chapter 9

As Taylor walked me to the door, I could not believe what happened. I had butterflies in my stomach and I didn’t know why. It wasn’t as if we hadn’t kissed before or anything. But it was so ‘woah’, we just made out! Talk about sudden! I knew that something was going to happen, but I didn’t think that it was going to be so…great.

As I turned to face him before I walked out the door, I felt different around him now. More to like how I used to feel about him before the whole Jenn thing happened. And I liked the way that it felt. It was something that was good to feeling but it was also a little frightening to be feeling because when you trust you’re heart like that, you don’t know what is going to happen or where it will lead you. I smiled.

“Now what?” I asked him. He shrugged his shoulders.

“Would I be right if I said that you didn’t feel hate?” he smiled.

“You knew I wouldn’t feel hate.” I said. “But still, now what?”

“Well, maybe, if you would want too, we could, uh, maybe get back together?”

“Actually, I don’t think we officially broke up.” I smiled. He returned my smile. I was right though. We didn’t really break up. I found him kissing someone else and then I moved away. And when I came back, it was just as if we were only in a small fight or something like that. “So, all in the same, we are going out.”

“Okay.” He said. “I’ll agree with that.

“Well, it’s kinda late. I better get going. I’ll see you tomorrow at school.”

“Yeah.” He said, then lowered his head and gently let his lips press against mine.




I walked home, mostly in awe. I did not expect that to happen! All I was thinking that would happen would be the kiss. One kiss. I didn’t think that we would end up making out. The first time Taylor’s lips touched mine, I knew that I still loved him and that there was probably going to be more than just that one kiss that we had both intended.

From what I remembered, Taylor was a pretty good kisser but now he was even better. I had to think about how many relationships Taylor had been in after I left. Alicia said that it had been a lot. And before we would get too in depth, I would have a few questions to ask him.

At school the next day, I had butterflies in my stomach again like I did the night before. When I was at my locker, talking to Alicia, her eyes widened as we talked. Then I felt arms slip around my waist. I immediately tensed up and even though I knew that it was Taylor, I was still a little uneasy.

I turned around to meet his eyes. They seemed to be glowing. I looked around at the people looking at us, pointing at us and whispering at us, all wondering what was going on. In the week that I had been back to Tulsa, I had become quite popular, mostly with the cheerleader types. They all just wanted info about Taylor and me in the past. Almost everyone knew that Taylor and I had a past together and that it wasn’t very pretty, but no one (but Alicia) knew the whole truth about everything and I tried my best to ignore the seven different rumors that were flying around about why I moved away.

With all the people watching, waiting to see what was going to happen next, I felt really uncomfortable, yet I wanted to kiss him in front of all those people, sorta just to make the point that we were together. Not as if they couldn’t see that with him with his arms around me, but I wanted to make it official public information.

I reached behind his neck and pulled him down and our lips touched together quickly. As I opened my eyes, everyone that was around was in awe, especially Alicia. I hadn’t filled her in on ‘this’ yet and she was just as surprised and confused as everyone else. “Hi.” I said.

“Hi” he replied. Then he took his hand in mine and pulled me away from Alicia and my locker. I looked back helplessly at her. She had a mixture of looks, but it was evident that she was happy for me, yet she showed emotion of betrayal, too. She understood my look, shut and locked my locker then turned in the opposite direction.

“What are you doing?” I asked Taylor.

“Showing you off.” He said, pulling me close.
