Sequel: The Road.
Status: The End! Sequel Is Up!


Chapter Three.

I smile as I lay in my bed in the darkness, I hadn’t noticed until tonight how cute Alex really was, maybe I hadn’t noticed before because I hadn’t really spent time alone with him, whenever we talked it was always about our paintings and about what he did on the weekend, and of course Ariana would always be mentioned at least once a day.

I sigh happily, for the first time in two years I was genuinely smiling, and it’s all thanks to Alexander Gaskarth.
I hear Ariana curse from outside my room, apparently she misplaced her shoes. I groan and place my pillow over my head, I didn’t want to hear her complain any longer.

“Ma! Are you sure you haven’t seen them?” She shouts as she walks trough the hallway.

I get out of bed and open the door, “Can you stop fucking screaming, I’m trying to sleep!” I shout glaring at Ariana.

“It’ nine in the fucking morning, why don’t you get up your lazy ass and help mom around the house!”

“I don’t see you helping around the house.” I shout back.

“YA!” Carmen shouts angrily causing both Ariana and I to look at her.

“I am sick and tired of all the bickering, if I hear any one of you shout again, you will regret every being born.” Carmen says and walks to her bedroom.

I glare at Ariana and walk back into my room, there was no point in trying to go back to sleep, so instead I took a shower and got dressed, by the time I was done putting on my purple skinny jeans and my ’Bury Your Dead’ tee, Ariana was still looking for her black shoes.

“Just wear a different pair.” I told her trying not to raise my voice.

“That’s easy for you to say, you own a million pair of shoes.” She spat and looked away.

"I wouldn't want you to miss your precious interview." I say sarcastically.

"Meghan, just disappear and leave me alone."

"I would gladly disappear if I could, and I would never have to see your face ever again." I smile and walk down the stairs just as there is a knock on the door.

“I got it.” I mumble and wonder who would come to here at this time of the day.

I open the door and smile as I see Alex, “hey, what are you doing here?” I ask with a raised eyebrow.

“I’m wondering the same about you.” He says looking a bit confused.

Right, he doesn’t know about me and Ariana.

I grin, I could really mess this up for her. Before I can say anything I hear Ariana shriek and then she runs down the stairs, “what are you doing here Alex?” She asks as she shoves me gently out of the way.

“I wanted to apologize for last night, I shouldn’t have left you alone without telling you anything.”

“You could have called,” she mumbles and I can see her cheeks blush a bit.

“So why is Meghan here?” Alex then asks as he looks at me.

“Uh… She spent the night over, she was just getting ready to leave.” Ariana looks at me with a grin as she says the last part.

I glare at her, I really hate her.

“Yeah, I just need to get my stuff, I should really be heading home.” I fake smile and walk up the stairs as Ariana and Alex begin talking, I guess Ariana wasn’t angry at him any more.

I grab my pink purse from my vanity table and my leather jacket from my closet and then I walk out of my room.

“Where are you going?” Carmen asks.

“Out.” I reply and walk down the stairs, Alex and Ariana were still in deep conversation.

“Nice seeing you again Alex.” I say and wave goodbye, and start walking towards the mall.

“Meghan!” I hear someone shout after a couple of minutes walking, I turn my head and see as Alex in his car.

“Hey,” I smile and continue walking.

“Get in idiot!” He says with a small laugh.

I open the passenger door and get in.

Alex smiles causing my stomach to do a flip, but I smile back pretending to seem calm.

"I was going to ask you last night if I could draw you." I say randomly.

"You want to draw me?" He asks with raised eyebrows.

"Yeah, you have a very nice bone complexion." I say in a matter of fact tone.

"That would be great, just tell me when."

I smile and look down at my hands, my pink nail polish was starting to fade.

“So where do you live?” He asks, I laugh and shake my head.

“The mall.” I smirk.

“I never thought of you as being a mall person.” He tells me as he begins to drive.

“I love shopping.” I say with a smile.

“I can’t imagine you at the mall.” Alex says with his cute little laugh.

“Well, what kind of person do I look like?” I question him.

He shrugs, “Somebody who likes to listen to music while they paint and who would rather waste their time writing random shit than going to the mall.”

“There’s a lot you don’t know about me Gaskarth.”

“I would like to know more about you Carlson.”

I smile and look out the window, I see the mall getting closer.

“You are right, I do like listening to music while I paint, I do write random shit, but I love shopping and going to the mall, I love chocolate ice cream, I also love learning new things, and I like how it feels when I win at something, which is all the time.” I laugh as I say the last part.

“I used to love to sing, but I stopped once-” I stop mid sentence and sigh.

“Thanks for the ride.” I tell him as I sign for him to park so I can get out of the car.

“Why did you stop singing?” He asks

I shake my head, “It’s a long story and I don’t want to bore you.”

I open the door and turn to look at Alex, “are you going to watch me shop until I drop, or are you going to pass up the opportunity?”

He grins, “I’ll help you shop until you drop.”

Alex gets out of the car and links his arms with mine and we make our way into the mall together.
