Typical summer holidays walking the
beach with my best friend Alexa,
I was so jealous of her beauty, her
long brown hair, dark down eyes, tall,
tanned skin and what else can I say her perfect body… whereas I
nothing compared to her, median blonde hair, boring blue eyes,
well not too short but still short compared to her, pale skin and
I don't know how to describe my body, some call me fat others say
skinny some say I have 'huge' boobs other say I am flat chested.
have a few things in common though, like our personality, our
our taste in music and our like for guys who play us. So yeah

danced blissfully onto the sand and over our burnt feet. That is
one thing I hate about summer and the beach the horrible sun
I get. "Isn't this just the most beautiful place you have ever
asked Alexa, I nodded my head to agree and just looked back
to the ocean, I quickly looked back at her I could tell she knew

she smiled at me "yeah I'm fine" I smiled back at her but the
was I wasn't I was losing my best friend and I knew it, ever

couldn't even trust her with my middle name. Which by the
my middle name is Agatha, Yep that's me Delilah Agatha

me by the hand and said "Del you know I will always be your
friend' I hated how she could always know what I was
About an hour later still on the beach, I swear I was going to
a tomato She took my hand again and said "close your eyes for
few minutes I have a surprise for you' I closed my eyes
what she had just said, a few minutes pass and she tells me
open my eyes again. Standing in front of me is this beautiful
tanned curly haired boy I look at her and smile, she smiles
nods and walks away with this cute short skinny blonde haired
I smile back at the stranger standing in front of me "hi, my name
Delilah and you are?' I state. He laughs at me 'I'm Shayne'
He looks at me into my eyes then back at my lips. What is he
I don't even know the kid, He kisses me softly and sweetly I
so I kiss him back, I turn away and blush, 'where have you been
life' he asks, 'in your fathers bed' I say jokingly and wink "my

I reply he
smiles and me and pulls me in for a hug, There is only one
with this, I'm going home in a few days.
Woe is me, why is it every time I find a decent guy there is
issue I can't just be happy can I? I pull away from him and stare
the eyes, his beautiful brown eyes, he looks so sad; does he know
leaving soon? Why is he acting like this? With me especially?
goodness I see Alexa coming back; she will know what to do she
Alexa walks right up to us all alone what happened to the boy she
"We have to go now" she says
I could sense the hurt in her voice and see the pain in her eyes,
what had this
boy done to her? I'll hurt him I will. I nod and start to walk
away with her when
Shayne grabs me by the hand and spins me into his chest for one
I hug him back, I couldn't just stand there I knew he would be
hurt if I did.
He smiles at me as Alexa and I walk away.
Alexa looks at me and fakes a
'So what happened?' she asks
'You tell me?' I reply
'what ever do you mean? Nothing happened'
Trying to be strong as she always does
'I know he hurt you Alexa so why don't you just tell me what he
I can hurt him already'
'Uhm, ohk I will tell you what happened as soon as we are alone'
'What do you mean? We are alone'
She glances back over her shoulder and there he is, Shayne…
He had followed us all the way here.
Me and Alexa both stop and look at him for a while she walks over
and whispers something in his ear and amazingly he just walks
saying anything to me but he did give me one last glimpse of his
We walked all the way to her house but no one was home so then we
break into her bedroom window. We finally got inside and were
sitting on her bed.
'So what happened with you and that boy?' I asked.
'well you see he was supposed to be one of my best friends and I
thought he liked me,
because I liked him but just then he told me that he has a
girlfriend and she doesn't want
him to be friends with me anymore because me and him were so
close' she said.
`WHAT!, how can he do that! How can she say that! Does she even
Shall I bet them up' I reply
'No, she doesn't know me but it doesn't matter anyway' she
'Don't worry about him sweetie he obviously doesn't know how
amazing you are.' I say
I give her a hug.
Days pass and I can't stop thinking about Shayne, why I haven't
or why he hasn't tried to contact me or Alexa.
Anyway its almost time to go home, I have all my stuff in Alexa's
ready to head home. Just as we were driving down her
I spot the crazy curly haired kid running down the
She stops the car next to him. He walks to the passenger side
I open the window he hands me a piece of paper leans in and
kisses me on the check and just walks away.
'Don't worry Hun, it will all be okay, try not to think about him
a long trip ahead of us.' Says Alexa
