Lily loves to race and sing. What happens when the two talents clash?
I rubbed my eyes as the lightning flashed and the thunder roared in one of the little neiborhoods in Virginia Beach,Virginia.I hoped the storm would clear soon.If not,the race would be canceled,which would royaly suck on ice.It was Thurseday night.Well,maybe Friday morning.I didn't know and I really didn't feel like looking for my phone just to find out.I had no clock in my room.I didn't need an alarm in the mornings.The sun was my alarm clock.Even if the sun wasn't up,my body was used to getting up at a certain time.Therefore,no clock needed.I sighed.I could hear my mother walking through the hall.I rolled over and shut my eyes,pretending to be asleep.My bedroom door opened with an eerie creaking.
"Lily,"my mother called through the darkness.
I stayed still.She sighed and shut the door.When I heard the click of my door,I got up and threw on my favorite outfit.Skinny jeans,Skull shirt and black and pink Converses.It was more pink then I'd have liked but it looked good on me.I opened my window as quietly as I could.
When it was finally open,I jump down to the ground.I shut the window to the point where there was only an inch opened.I ran into the storm.I liked running,even though I was becoming soaked in the proccess of running.I ran anyway.
When I got to Danny's house,Momma opened the door before I even reached the porch.I smiled up at her.She smiled back and handed me a towel.I dried off as fast as I could.
"Your hair's down,"she commeted.
I looked at her confused.
"Your hair,"she smiled."It's down.It's always up in a ponytail."
I smiled at her and said,"Oh."
"Danny,Jacob and Taylor are in the den."
"Thank you,"I said over my shoulder,heading towards the den.
When I got into the den,the three boys looked over at me,smiled and waved.I smiled back.I went over to Danny,sat on his lap,kissed his cheak and ruffled his already,naturally,messy,black hair.His pale skin and deep,green eyes made him look alittle vampire-ish.
"Too bad Danny's gay,huh,Lily?"Jacob laughed.
I rolled my eyes.
"Danny's not gay,"I defended.
"No!Dan's not gay!"Taylor said,then continued,"Just gayish."
Jacob and Taylor burst out laughing.
"Your hair's down,"Danny stated.
"Your point?"I asked.
"The point is:It's always up,"Taylor and Jacob said together.
"Alright,Dorkamese twins."Danny laughed as Taylor and Jacob glared at me for calling them by their nicknames.
Taylor and Jacob threw popcorn at us.Danny and I looked at eachother,nodded,and began throwing chips.Then,the fight erupted.Empty soda cans,popcorn,chips and pizza crust went flying around the room.We all laughed.Danny and I lost the food fight.I put my hands up in a surrendering motion.Taylor through one last piece of pizza crust at me.We all smiled and laughed.Then,the smells surronded us.Bacon,eggs,toast and pancakes came to us.We followed our noses and growling stomachs to the kitchen.We practically threw eachother into every wall we could on the way there.We took our normal seats at the end of the table.I sat on Danny's left and Taylor sat to his right.Jacob sat next to Taylor.
"Where's everyone?"I asked Danny.
Taylor answered.
"Well,since Momma just finished cooking,they should be here in-"
"Hey, Momma!"everyone yelled,entering the kitchen.
"-Zero seconds,"Jacob finished.
I laughed and Danny rolled his eyes.Isabella sat next to me with Alex at her side.They had their hands intangled.I smiled at them and rolled my eyes as Ronny started asking Momma out,which was his daily routine.
"When will you realize age doesn't matter to me?"he asked Momma.
"And when will you realize that you are just too young for me?"she questioned back.
"But, Momma-"
She cut him off."Besides,"she smiled,"You only want me for my cooking."
Ronny sat down with a sigh.Taylor and Jacob laughed at his failed attempt,which made their eyes sparkle in union.
Jacob and Taylor aren't really twins.They don't even look alike.Taylor was a dark skin Indian boy with dark brown hair and almost black eyes.Jacob was a little white boy.He had blonde hair and dazzling blue eyes.Taylor was mucle guy.Jacob was skinny and lanky.They acted almost the same though and just about never argued.Ronny had dark,burnt looking black skin.His eyes were pitch black and he had his hair braided across his head.He was skinny but had mucles to protect anyone who messed with any of us.Not that any of us,except Isabella,our spanish,green eyed,brunette,couldn't protect ourselves.We were all preety strong and fit.Isabella was fit,just not all that strong.Ronny didn't need to protect Izzy(Isabella) though.That's what she had Alex for.Alex had sunburnt,white skin,brown hair and gray eyes.Chase had dark brown skin and pale brown eyes.Chase is bald.If you're wondering,yes,all the guys were preety good looking.Izzy was a beauty,and I was just a normal,blonde hair,blue eyed,pale skinned,white girl with nothing better to do than get into trouble with anyone she could.Nothing speical about me except I was a total tomboy.That thought made me smile though.Brad looked at me with his questioning eyes that all the girls liked so much.He had Spanish looking skin,but he was white,with a black attitude.I made fun of him for it all the time.He always said that God made him multi-cultural for a reason.That had always made me smile.He had light brown eyes and dark brown hair.
"What?"I asked him.
Well,technically,I asked his eyes.Everyone got quiet and looked at us.
"Your hair,"he said.
"What about it?"I asked him.
"It's not up,"he said.
"Thank you,Captin DUH!"I stated.
Everyone bust out laughing.
"I like your hair down,"Danny told me.
I smiled at him.Momma turned on the radio.The music began blaring through the speakers and I smiled as I reconized the song.I began singing along and everyone smiled as I sang.
"What?"I asked,noticing everyone looking at me.
"You can sing!"Dorkamese twins (Jacob and Taylor) said in union.
"I think y'all are confused,"I said to them.
Everyone went back to eating and talking amongst eachother.I looked around and caught Danny staring at me.
"What?"I asked him.
"Nothing,"he said,turning to his food.
I rolled my eyes.I ate bacon and eggs.I didn't want anything else.Isabella and Alex were being too lovey towards eachother.I pretended to gag and everyone began making fun of them.I laughed and left the room when I thought noone was paying any attention.I headed up to Danny's room,which is where I usually slept,right next to Danny,every night.I kicked off my shoes and spread out on the bed.Danny came in a few moments later.I smiled at him as he took his spot next to me.
He wrapped his arms around me and pulled me closer to his chest.I curled up against him and smiled.
"How are you?"he asked me.
"I'm fine,"I lied.
"Tell the truth,"he smiled.
"Why do I even try to lie to you?"I dirrected the question at my self more than I did him.
He didn't answer.
"No,"I said truthfully."I'm not fine."
"What's wrong?"he asked gently.
"My mother had just gotten home when I left the house,"I answered.
"Did she catch you sneaking out?"He sounded worried.
"No,"I told him."I waited until after she checked on me to leave."
"Oh."He sounded pleasent again.I looked up at him and smiled.He smiled back at me.I leaned against him again,turning my face so he couldn't see me.
"This is my favorite place,"I whispered to him.
"My house?"he questioned.
"No,"I laughed.
"Where then?"he asked.
I looked up at him,trying to read his expression.
"Anywhere that you are,"I finally answered.
He smiled at me and bent in to kiss my lips.Before he could however...
"Hey guys!What's up?"Brad,Chase and Ronny yelled,entering the room.
I must have looked really angry because they backed off quickly.
They left the room as quickly as they came.
"Now,"Danny smiled,sitting up with me.
"Where were we?"I asked.
He smiled and began leaning towards me again.Right then...
"What's going on y'all?"Alex and Jacob came in.
"OUT!"Danny yelled,pointing towards the door.
They left,looking a little shocked.
"Oh my gosh!"I groaned sadly."They will never leave us alone."
"We're alone now,"Danny said.
"Hmm,"I hummed.
This time,I leaned towards him.Before our lips met...
"Hey!"Taylor and Isabella interrupted.
"GO AWAY!"Danny yelled as I threw pillows in their dirrection.
Isabella and Taylor ducked away from the pillows and ran out the door, slamming it in the proccess of leaving.I plopped my head against the only pillow left on the bed and covered my face with my hands.Danny laid his head next to mine.I uncovered my face and turned towards him.He looked at me at the same time.We sat there for a second,just looking at each other,and then Momma walked in.
"Hi,Momma,"I smiled.
She picked the pillows I had thrown at everyone up and threw them at us.Danny and I put the two pillows in their places and laid down.
"Good night, My Darling and My Angel."Danny and I smiled at our nicknames and said goodnight.
Danny and I got under the covers and I laid across his cheast.
"Goodnight, Mi Amor,"(My Love in spanish)I said to Danny.
"Goodnight, Mi Mascota Pequeña,"(My Little Pet in spanish)Danny replied.
I fell asleep in his arms and I wished to never have to leave him.But,six o'clock,Friday morning came.Danny left for Redford H.S.,where he would meet Taylor,Brad and Alex and I left for Mount Pete's High where I could find Isabella,Jacob,Ronny and Chase.I drove myself to school in my FORD 150 red truck.It took about half an hour to get there.My Jojo cd played as I drove through the traffic,hitting every red light on the way.Then,half way there,some guy on a motorcycle cut me off.Then,he decided that he wanted to go to the same place as me,and drove as slow as a motorcycle could go.Finally, when I got to the parking lot, when I was about to park in my usual spot, he jumped into my spot.
"That's it,"I yelled to myself.
I got out of my car and turned on him.I couldn't think of any curse word off the top of my head,along with the fact that I don't curse.
So instead I yelled,"Jerk face."
He was taking off his helmet.His pure black,skater-styled hair,fell onto his face.His green-brown,hazel eyes,looked at me.I had to stop and remind myself to breathe when I saw him.He wore a leather jacket, just like me.He had full,dark pink lips,which were partially opened.He stared at me, and I stared back.I shock my head and remembered that I was angry.
"You took my parking space,"I stated,not being able to look him in the eye.
"Oh,"he said,not looking in my eyes either,"I'm sorry."
Neither of us moved. Being the first to break the silence, I smiled at him.
"It's okay," I stated. "I'll go park around back."
"No, no," he protested, "I'll move."
But I was already heading back towards my car with my keys in my hand. I heard footsteps behind me. Then, I felt a smooth hand reach into mine and grab my keys. I turned, guessing Isabella was behind me. I was wrong. It was the biker dude.
"I'll move," he smiled.
I could do nothing but smile back kindly. He handed me my keys, jogged back over to his bike and started the engine. I watched as he drove away. I shook my head, turned around and walked over to my truck. I parked 'My Red Beauty' a.k.a. my truck. Sorry, but I named my car. I had to run to class to keep from being late. The bell rang right after I jumped over a desk in the back of the room and landed in my chair gently. I heard chuckles from a few class members. I smiled to myself. The teacher sat at her desk. Izzy and I smiled at eachother from our seats next to eachother and before we could even say hey to one another, the door opened. In came the new kid. When he entered the room, all the girls held their breathe and couldn't take their eyes off of him. He didn't even notice the girls looking at him. He looked dirrectly at me and I rolled my eyes and looked down at my notebook, doodling on it, which was difficult because it was already full of doodles. The class was silent as he walked to the teachers desk. I glanced up to see him whispering as the teacher stood up.
"Alright," she smiled at him.
He smiled back.
"Where do I sit?"he asked kindly.
His voice was amazing. Almost like a sweet lullaby.
"Sit..." she smiled. "Sit next to the prettiest girl in the room."
He smiled and looked around. All the girls immediatly tried to get his attention. Some waved at him, some batted their eyes. I heard him walking around. I kept doodling. I felt a presence next to me. I looked up. There he was.
"May I sit here?" he smiled to me, pointing at the empty seat next to me.
I shrugged.
"Go ahead," I smiled sweetly.
He sat. All the girls looked dissappointed.
I heard someone mumble, "Lily always gets the cute ones."
I smiled and held in a laugh.
"I'm Gabriel,"he said to me, putting his hand out for me to shake.
"Lily," I smiled, shaking his hand. "Nice to meet you."
"The pleasure is all mine," he smiled, pulling my hand to his lips.
He kissed my hand softly and I let out a small laugh. Seriously, how was this kid raised? Was he born in the 1950's or something? Little did I know just how old he really was at the time. He let go of my hand and looked at me lovingly. I didn't understand the look he was giving me. He had just met me. He was looking at me like he had known me his whole life. He looked as if he was in love with me. His eyes were shining brightly, his smile was a cute half-grin, and he couldn't stop looking at me. I stared back at him questionly. I tilted my head to the side, opened my mouth slightly in the shape of an 'O' and had my eyes only partially opened. He shook his head and snapped himself out of the trance he seemed to be in.
"Umm. Sorry," he said."I kinda got caught up in your eyes."
Yup. Definitly born in the 1950's. I looked away, a little embarrased.
"Umm. It's okay," I said, doodling again.
I could feel his eyes on me again. I opened my notebook and tried to finish my sketch of Danny. I pulled out my IPod and began playing 'Cowboy Take Me Away', by the Dixie Chicks. I shaded in the hair and darkened the tint.
"Who's that?" Gabriel asked me.
"A friend of mine," I said.
It was true. Danny and I weren't together. We just acted like it. Which sucked because I wouldn't mind being his girlfriend.
"Hmm," I heard Gabriel's voice. "You're really good."
I looked at him.
"Thank you," I smiled at him.
"Are you going to enter the art competetion?"he asked.
"You've been here 15 minutes and you already know about that," I laughed.
"There was a poster in front of where I parked," he joked.We both laughed. That's when I noticed that everyone was looking at us. I looked around.
"Umm" I mumbled under my breath.
I smiled at him the went back to drawing.
"So are you going to be in it? It'll give me a reason to go," he smiled, ignoring everyones looks at us.
"No," I said quietly.
"Why not?" he seemed really concerned.
"Because," I explained,"the judges tell you what you have to draw. I don't like being told what to do. Espeically when it comes to my drawings and cars."
"Cars?" he asked.
"Yeah," I smiled. "I'm a racer."
"Cool," he smiled.
"Yeah," I smiled.
The song on my IPod changed to 'Only Me When I'm With You' by Taylor Swift. I sang along. I didn't look at Gabriel when I sang. I looked down at my notebook. I turned to a blank page and faced Gabriel.
"Hold still," I ordered him, laughing a little.
He turned to look at me and sat still. I drew the outline of his face. Perfect heart shaped face. He smiled as I glanced at him. I smiled back then went back to the drawing. I drew the outline of his hair. It was messy and easy to draw. I smiled. I looked at him again. He was looking directly at me. I blushed and let my hair fall in front of my face. I drew his eyes and added no detail. I looked at his lips and got a strong urge to kiss him. I shook my head and looked down at the page. Before I knew it, I had finished drawing Gabriel. The bell rang right as I was putting on the finishing touches. I looked up, coming out of my trance. He seemed to be doing the same thing as me. We looked at each other for a moment and then stood up. I put my notebook away as fast as possible. I climbed out of my seat and practically ran out of the class. I was the first one in my math class. That was new. I sighed and took my seat in front of the room beside the door. I sat there and breathed silently, hoping not to see Gabriel again today.
Jacob, Ronny and Chase walked into the room laughing. I smiled as they entered. Then, Gabriel walked in behind them. I looked out the window quickly as he looked at me. It was still raining. In fact, it was pouring.
Ronny, Chase and Jacob sat around me and Gabriel walked to the back of the classroom.
"I think we're going to have to cancel the race guys," I said out loud.
Jacob groaned, Ronny looked confused and Chase laughed at me.
"What?" I asked him, a little annoyed.
"Scared of the rain Lily?" he asked.
It was my turn to laugh then.
"I'm not afraid of anything," I smiled at him.
He smiled back, a little flirty. i rolled my eyes and saw Gabriel out the corner of my eye. I put my head set in my ears immediatly. I hit play on my IPod and 'Can't Be Tamed' by Miley Cyrus came on. I sang along.
Ronny pulled one of my headphones out and whispered, "You need to enter the talent show," into my ear.
I smiled. Then I began thinking about it. I looked at him at the same time he looked at me. We both had the same idea.
"Hey guys?" I smiled at Ronny.
"Yeah?" Chase and Jacob asked, looking at Ronny and I with a confused look.
"How do y'all feel about someone we know singing in the Talent Show next Friday?" I smiled.
"I'd go just to laugh at them," Chase laughed.
"Same here," Jacob laughed.
"What if it was me?" I smiled.
They looked at me for a moment, then, a smile appeared on their lips and next thing I knew they burst out laughing. The math teacher, who was hosting the Talent Show, walked in then.
"What would you do in a talent show?" Chase laughed.
They both looked on the verge of tears from laughing.
"Sing," Ronny suggested.
They laughed harder.
"Lily? Singing? Not likely," Jacob laughed harder.
I punched them both in the arm.
"OW!!!" they both yelled.
Ronny laughed.
"How would you even get into the talent show?" Jacob asked.
I glanced at the math teacher.
"No, Lily, you can not give the teacher a lap dance," Chase joked.
Jacob laughed. I gave Jacob a dirty look and he shut up quickly. I restarted the song and began singing loud enough for the teacher to just barely hear.
"For those who don't know me, I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way, 24 hours a day
'Cause I'm hot like that
Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention
Like I'm under inspection, I always get the 10s
'Cause I'm built like that

I go through guys like money flyin' out their hands
They try to change me but they realize they can't
And every tomorrow is a day I never planned
If you're gonna be my man, understand

I can't be tamed, I can't be saved
I can't be blamed, I can't, can't
I can't be tamed, I can't be changed
I can't be saved, I can't be (can't be)
I can't be tamed...."
I took the headset out of my ears and goto on top of Ronny and my desk. Chase and Jacob's eyes were looking at me as if they had never seen me before. More people entered the classroom and the teacher turned to look at me. I began to dance with the song.
"If you have any questions about my intentions
I'll tell ya I'm not here to sell ya
Or tell ya to get to hell
I'm like a puzzle but all of my pieces are jagged
If you can understand this, we can make some magic
I'm wrong like that

I wanna fly I wanna drive I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don't know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby by now you should know

I can't be tamed, I can't be saved
I can't be blamed, I can't, can't
I can't be tamed, I can't be changed
I can't be saved, I can't be (can't be)
I can't be tamed

I'm not a trick you play, I wired a different way
I'm not a mistake, I'm not a fake, It's set in my DNA
Don't change me (x4)
(I can't be tamed)..."
Students that I didn't even know were looking inside of the room and looking at me with smiles on their faces. The teacher was smiling and nodding his head. Ronny, Chase and Jacob were watching me with wide eyes. Gabriel was cheering along with a bunch of other teens.
"I wanna fly I wanna drive I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don’t know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby by now you should know

I can't be tamed, I can't be saved
I can't be blamed, I can't, can't
I can't be tamed, I can't be changed
I can't be saved, I can't be (can't be)
I can't be tamed!"
I smiled as I stopped dancing and singing. Everyone began cheering for me. I smiled and jumped off my desk. If I had known Gabriel was right in front of the spot that I was going to land I wouldn't have jumped in that general direction.
He was smiling a little half smile that took my breath away for a moment. I just stared at him with wide eyes and my mouth barely opened. He stared back into my eyes. I smiled then. I figured I might as well not hide that I knew he was really cute. He smiled back. My smile widened and I looked away.
"You're a good singer," he complemented.
"Well thank you" I smiled, flirting a little bit.
"He's right," Mr.Adams, the math teacher, said from behind me. "How would you like to perform in the Talent Show next Friday?"
I stood there with one hand on my hip and acted like I was thinking about it for a moment.
"I would love to," I answered.
Gabriel, Ronny, Chase and Jacob smiled and everyone else clapped. Then, the bell rang and everyone ran to their seats and the other students ran out of the class to their own classes, causing Gabriel and I to laugh.
Everyone had heard that I could sing by the time lunch started. The rain had finally stopped so I walked to my usual table outside with Izzy. Ronny, Chase and Jacob were already there, Gabriel was just sitting down when Izzy and I got to the table.Then everyone came running over.
"What are you gonna sing?"
"You can sing?"
"I never knew!"
"I don't think she can really sing!" I heard Sindy's voice over all the others. I turned and glared at her.
"Is that a challenge?" Izzy asked protectivly.
"You bet," she answered nastly.
"Come on Lil!" Chase smiled, "Show 'er what you got." I smiled at him.
"Okay," I stood on top of the table.
"If we're lucky, she'll fall," Sindy laughed to one of her friends.
I glared for a moment and then I began singing.
"Ohh Oh Ho Yeah
La Da Da
Don't get me wrong I love who I am
I don't wanna be ungrateful
It probably sounds strange
I really love the role I play the songs I sing
But with all the fame
the things that seem so simple
suddenly so far out of reach
wish that they could see that underneath

I'm just an ordinary Girl
Sometimes I'm Lazy, I get bored.
I get scared, I feel ignored
I feel happy, I get silly
I choke on my own words
I make wishes, I have dreams
And I still want to believe
Anything can happen in this world
for an Ordinary Girl
like you, like me
for an Ordinary Girl
like you like me

How are you?
Hello, goodbye
One day here, one day there
and again it's time to go
miss popular always on the road
put my best foot forward
gotta get on with the show
strike a pose for the front cover of a magazine
everywhere I arrive I get high fives
they pay me larger than life

I just an ordinary Girl
Sometimes I'm Lazy, I get bored.
I get scared, I feel ignored
I feel happy, I get silly.
I choke on my own words
I make wishes, I have dreams
And I still want to believe
Anything can happen in this world
for an Ordinary Girl
so give it everything or nothing at all
And get back on your feet
When you stumble and fall
A lil luck can go a long way
so don't you worry about what people say
who knows where the wind may blow

for an ordinary girl...mmm

I'm just an ordinary Girl
Sometimes I'm Lazy, I get bored.
I get scared, I feel ignored
I feel happy, I get silly.
I choke on my own words
I make wishes, I have dreams
And I still want to believe
Anything can happen in this world
for an Ordinary Girl
like you, like me
for an Ordinary Girl
like you like me

For an ordinary girl...mmm

For an ordinary girl

Like me like you..."
Sindy's mouth was wide opened. I jumped down and landed in front of her.
"You should shut your mouth," I suggested. "Flies 'el get it."
Everyone was clapping and cheering for me. I looked around and smiled. Gabriel was staring at me nonstop. I blushed a little and looked back at Sindy. She was glaring at me with her green eyes. I smiled kindly and she tossed her red hair around and stomped away. I smiled smugly to myself. I went and sat back down in my usual spot next to Izzy as the crowd fadded away.
By the end of the day I was ready to get home, get in my red Camaro and race. I drove Izzy to Danny's house with Ronny, Chase and Jacob driving behind us.
Danny, Brad, Taylor and Alex were already home. Ronny, Chase, Izzy, Jacob and I all entered the house singing, laughing and dancing. Mama looked at us funny for a moment and then rolled her eyes and looked away. We went straight to the den, still having fun and looking like idiots. Danny smiled as I entered. Chase put his arm over my shoulder, as usual, and whispered "sing Can't Be Tamed" in my ear. I rolled my eyes and started to sing. Izzy, Ronny, Jacob and Chase caught on quickly. Chase and Ronny danced with me. Izzy laughed from the chair she had taken over. Jacob made the beat on the table. Brad, who had known since second grade that I could sing, just smiled. Danny, Taylor and Alex just stared with wide eyes.
Ronny, Chase and I broke out laughing when we finished. Danny smiled at me. I sat on Izzy instead of Danny's lap. Izzy and I began laughing.
"So what are you gonna sing in the talent show?" Ronny asked.
"What?" Danny smiled.
"You're in the talent show?" Alex asked.
"Yeah," I smiled.
"It was all over school," Izzy smiled.
"Oh the look on Sindy's face," Jacob said dreamily.
Izzy, Ronny, Chase and I laughed remembering it.
"Yeah," Izzy smiled, "Plus Gabriel."
Chase and Jacob laughed.
"Shut up," I laughed, a little embarrased.
"Oooh," Ronny laughed. "So defensive?"
I laughed a little and glared at him.
"Who?" Danny asked.
"New kid in school who has the hots for Lily," Jacob explained.
"And it seems like our little Miss Lily has the hots for him," Chase laughed.
I grabbed the pillow that was behind Izzy and threw it at him.
"Oh, ho, oh! She does like him!" Izzy yelled.
"Shut up," I smiled.
Everyone laughed. Everyone except for Danny. Danny was just looking at me with questioning eyes.

We canceled the race due to the excessive pouring rain outside. I left Danny's house earlier than usual. My truck wasn't reacting to the rain very well so I had to take my '97 Camaro home. It was amazing that my mother had never realized that there were new cars across the street every week. Then again, it didn't.
She never really paid attention to the things around her. Take it from the neglected child that knows. All she noticed were the guys who stared at her boobs and the crack being handed to her. 'No, no, no,' she thought to herself. 'I have to give her more credit than that. She does other drugs, too.'
I laughed a little to herself, then let her mind wonder as she drove through the rain. She found herself thinking about Gab when she turned onto her road. There were lights ahead of her. 'Police lights,' she thought to herself, wondering what trouble her mother caused this time.She sighed and pulled over two houses down from her house and stepped out of her car.
She relaxed a little bit as she realized that the police cars weren't in front of her house. They were next door.
"What's going on?" a voice scared me from behind.
I jumped about three feet in the air and yelped. Okay, it wasn't exactly a yelp. It was more like a little girly scream. Like when preps see a small spider. I was ashamed at myself for it. I turned to see who had snuck up on me.
There he was. Standing in the rain. Soaking wet with rain dripping from his hair. Gabriel.
We stared at each other for a moment. There seemed to be a connection that neither of us could figure out. Next thing I knew he leaned down and kissed my lips gently.
I had the sensation of flying. My heart beat got faster and my legs felt like jello. I could barely stand up straight. I leaned into him and put my arms around his neck at the same time that he put his arms around my waist.
He pressed his body against mine and tried to pull me as close as possible. I could barely breath. Everything seemed to be in a haze.
His lips moved with mines perfectly. They felt soft and warm compared to the violent storm that was pouring down on us. The wind blew my soaked hair around. He moved his hand up my back and wrapped his hand in my hair then pulled it a little.
I pressed closer. He pulled his lips away from mine in such a sudden movement that I had to catch my balance. Then, his lips were on my neck. He pulled my head back by my hair. I was shocked. All I could do was stand there.
I wondered when he would stop kissing me for a very brief moment and then I realized that I didn't want him to stop kissing me. I wanted him to come closer.
His lips moved lower and he kissed my chest. He pulled at my tank top and then stopped for a moment. He stood up straight and looked me in the eyes. He stared into me deeply. Then, he picked me up and carried me to my car. We were in the back seat before I realized what was happening.

I didn't see Gabriel again until Monday. I spent the whole weekend thinking about him. The way he held me close and kissed me. The way we moved together. It seemed magical in a way. I felt like I was being watched by something the rest of the weekend. I went to Danny's and didn't tell anyone about what had happened that night. Not even Izzy.
I acted the same as always. Danny and Chase looked at me differently than usual. When I asked why they were staring at me, they shook their heads and looked away. I caught them staring again every few minutes though. It felt like they knew something was different but couldn't figure it out.
I ignored their looks the best I could. Monday came slowly. I drove to school in my Camaro, thinking about the backseat incident again. I parked in my normal spot and got out of my car. The rain had finally stopped totally pouring down and was barely drizzling outside. I sat on the hood of my car and sighed. There was a small amount of sunlight peeking from behind the clouds.
I heard his engine then. I turned quickly and stared. His motorcycle purred by. He didn't even look over at me as he passed even though I had waved slightly. I was a little shocked that he had ignored me like that.
I pouted and walked in the direction of my home room class.
I got there as the bell rang and walked to my desk. Gabe came in when I reached my seat. I hadn't even sat down yet. I caught his eye and we both just stared at one another. He began walking towards me.
When he reached me, he kissed the top of my head and smiled down at me. I smiled back. He pulled my chair out for me and I sat in my normal seat next to Izzy.
Everyone was staring at us. I looked over at Izzy and smiled. She smiled, shock her head and looked at her notebook. I looked around at everyone who was staring.
"Can I help y'all?" I asked a little rudely.
They all looked away quickly. Gabe took my hand then. I turned to look at him. He smiled gently. I blushed and reached towards my book bag.
I unzipped it and pulled out my sketch pad and a pencil. He grabbed it from me.
"Hey," I smiled trying to grab it back.
He moved it dirrectly out of my reach and laughed.
"I just wanna see," he smiled.
"Okay," I pouted.
He put his lips on mine gently, kissing me deeply. I forgot to breath. He pulled away, but not quickly, and began flipping through the pages in my sketch pad. He got to the picture of him and looked at it for a bit longer. Then he flipped to the next page.
I had drawn a picture of him and I kissing in the rain. He smiled and glanced at me. I couldn't exactly look at him while he studied it. Then he pouted a little.
"I don't like it" he said. "It doesn't do you justice. I look like a god and you look way under average. It should be the other way around."
"You're deffinitly wrong," I stated. "I look like me and you look like you. I just don't have as much detail on myself as I do you."
Oh! So it's not finished?" he asked.
"It is," I smiled, snatching my book back.
He rolled his eyes.
