“I love you, in ways you’ve never been loved, for reasons you’ve never been told, for longer than you think you deserve and with more than you will ever know existed inside of me.”

 

I splashed my face with cold water, took a few deep breaths and walked back to the waiting room. Tiffany was the only one sitting there. 

"Where's Ryan?" I asked her. 

"Um. Piper woke up or something. I was supposed to tell you when you came back from your

quickie." She said snottily. 

"Why are you here? Why the fuck are you still here? Seriously? Ryan's good. He doesn't need you here. You can leave." I got in her face. 

"Don't be jealous because he wants to fuck me and not you anymore Rylee. That's really unbecoming. You should be worrying about your friends right now." She replied. 

"I can’t... I can't deal with you..." I said and walked away to the recovery room they had Piper in.

"Hey sunshine..." I said walking into her room, seeing her awake talking to Ryan. She looked at me tiredly and smiled. 

"Rylee girl..." She said weakly. 

"How are you feeling?" I asked her.

She began to sob.

"Oh Piper." I said running to her bed hugging her as best as I could. 

"I... I lost they baby..." She cried. 

"I know honey. I'm so sorry Pipes..." I said rubbing her head starting to cry with her. 

"And the love of my life is in surgery and has to re-learn how to walk... Why did this happen to us?" She asked no one. 

"What did happen?" I asked her. "Ryan said you and Joey were fighting." 

She began to cry again. 

"Joey..." She started but couldn't continue from crying so hard.

"Joey cheated on me." She finished through her sobs. I couldn't believe my ears. There's no way. She must've been misinformed. 

"Wha... How? What do you mean?" I said stunned and looked over at Ryan. He had the same stunned reaction.

"At the party last night... He told me some girl cornered him, kissed him and tried to undo his pants. " She said getting more angry than sad now. 

Ryan and I both just looked at her waiting for her to continue. 

"He said it happened so fast he didn't even know what was going on and when he realized it, he got her off of him." Piper finished.

"Holy shit..." I whispered.

"Sooo... He didn't technically cheat..." Ryan said putting his foot in his mouth.

Piper gave him the worst look I'd ever seen and said, "This girl kissing Joey is the reason I lost my baby and his legs are broken. It doesn't matter what it technically is, Ryan. It just changed my whole life." She replied. 

"You're right Piper. I'm sorry. It's my fault too. I never should've let Joey go. I knew he wasn't okay to drive. I'm so sorry." Ryan said walking up to Pipers bed and holding her hand. 

"Ry... You and I both know you wouldn't have been able to stop him. Please don't blame yourself. It's not your fault... at all." She told him squeezing his hand. 

Just then the nurse walked in.

"Joeys out of surgery. Everything went great. It's going to be a lot of physical therapy and a very long recovery, but he's going to be fine in time." She said cheerfully. 

"Oh good!" Piper sighed with relief. 

The nurse checked Piper and left.

"So.." I looked at Piper. "What are you going to do about Joey?" I asked her.

"What do you mean?" She questioned.

"What do you mean what do I mean? After last night. Are you forgiving him? Staying together?"

I wondered.

She looked at me like I was from another planet. 

"Of course, I'm forgiving him. I love him. We just lost our baby. Joey is everything to me Rylee. We'll make it out of this stronger than ever." She answered confidently. 

"You're the most amazing person I've ever known." I told her kissing her forehead. 

"I know" she said smugly. 

I stayed with Piper a little while longer then decided to go home, shower and get some rest. As I was leaving the hospital I couldn't stop thinking about how strong Piper was. How strong her and Joey are together. How I believe 100% that they are going to make it through this even stronger. If they can handle this, Benjamin and I should be able to work out our stupid mess if we really love each other.

And I do. I do love him.

I need to see him.

I drove to his house but didn't see his truck. I got out of Betty and nervously walked to his front door and knocked. I have no idea what his parents must think of me. His dad opened the door and looked a little surprised when he saw me but smiled politely.

"Umm... Hi. I'm Rylee. Is Ben here by chance?" I asked him nicely.

"Hi Rylee, it's good to finally meet you." He said. "But I'm sorry, he left to go back to the city a few hours ago." He informed me.

My face must've sunk because he looked at me sympathetically and asked if I'd like to "come in for a sec". I accepted his offer and walked into Benjamin's house. It smelled delicious. Like taco soup.

There was an elderly man hooked up to oxygen machines sitting on the couch who smiled the sweetest smile at me the second he saw me. He must be Benjamins grandpa.

"Would you like to sit?" Benjamin's dad asked me. I nodded my head and sat on the opposite side of the couch from his grandpa, uncomfortable and wondering why I had come in in the first place.

“This is my dad, Victor. Dad, this is Ben’s friend Rylee” Benjamins dad said to his grandfather.

“Well… you are just even more prettier than Ben described.” Victor said slowly between breaths of his oxygen tank.

I looked at him and smiled sweetly.

From out of the kitchen walks a tiny little hispanic woman. 

"Su, this is Rylee." Ben's dad introduced me. 

"Oh. I'm so happy to meet you! Are you hungry? Thirsty? I've got some soup on the stove and I just made some fresh sweet tea." His mom so kindly offered. I see where Benjamin gets his sweetness from. 

"No thanks. I'm not very hungry." I declined although the smell of the soup was making me drool. 

"How are your friends’ sweetie? Are they okay? We heard about it this morning." She asked. 

"Well... Piper... My best friend... had to have surgery for an abdominal bleed and she was actually pregnant and lost the baby. Then her boyfriend Joey, who is also my best friend, broke both his legs, but they're both going to be okay... Well... As okay as they can be..." I said confiding in these strangers who didn't really feel like strangers. 

"Oh sweetie. That's just awful." Benjamin's mom Su said sitting down next to me on the couch and sweetly grabbing my hand and I began to tear up. I hadn't allowed myself to cry this whole time now I couldn't stop myself. I put my hand over my face and cried while she rubbed my back. I regained composure and looked at all of them with tears still in my eyes.

"Look... I know y'all probably know some things about me that I'm not proud of. And I completely understand if not... But could you please tell me where he lives. I really need to see him." I asked them practically begging.

Su looked at Benjamin's dad then at his grandpa and smiled.

"Sweetheart... Shit happens." Benjamins grandpa Victor chimed in, making me laugh.

"He's been staying at The MacArthur Blvd Apartments. Building 9 apartment 21." Su told me.

We stood up and I hugged her, told her thank you, gave a nod to Ben's dad and grandpa and ran out the door.

I started to make the hour drive out of town and into the city. I had Bettys top down and the sky was getting dark and cloudy with the wind picking up cooling down the hot summer temperature. I was shaking the whole drive. Unsure of what I was even doing. I didn't know what I was going to say to Benjamin. But I knew I needed to see him. 

I pulled into his apartment complex and searched for building 9. I found it and searched the parking lot for his truck, but I couldn't find it. I didn't drive all this way for nothing. Maybe there's a different parking lot behind the building. I parked Betty and walked up the stairs until I found apartment 21. My nerves were shot. I could barely ring the doorbell my hands were shaking so bad. Some guy I've never seen answered the door and he too looked surprised to see me. This must be Benjamin's roommate.

"Are you Jason?" I asked.

"Yeah. And your Rylee." He said rudely.

"Yes I am.." I nodded.

"Is Benjamin here?" I questioned.

"Naahh... Last I heard he was going to go see you." He told me.

"He did... This morning... But his parents said he came back to the city." I asked him, getting worried that no one knew where Ben was.

"If he did, he didn't come home." Jason said seeming to insinuate he could be with another girl. "Alright bro... Thanks for all your help." I said sarcastically and bounded back down the stairs whipping out my phone to call Benjamin. This time it didn't ring at all and went straight to voicemail.

"Ben. It's me. Nobody knows where you are. I'm worried. I need to see you. Please call me back." I said to his voicemail.

I sat in the parking lot for 20 minutes trying to get a hold of him to no avail when my phone died and I decided to give up and head back home. I was so upset I didn't notice the clouds had gotten darker and there was thunder in the distance. I drove off with Bettys top still down silently crying with tears rolling down my cheeks. I bet after what happened at the hospital he came back to the city and went to Bethany’s house.

I feel so stupid.

I was about halfway home on an unlit country back road without a soul in sight when the bottom fell out of the sky. It was such an instant down pour it took me a second to react. I pulled Betty to the shoulder and hopped out to pull her top up, but it was stuck. The rain was coming down even harder now and I could barely see, every drop stinging my face.

 "Come on Betty! Don't do this to me now!" I yelled at my car, but she wasn't listening. I had left her running when she suddenly shuts off. 

"Nooo" I screamed feeling utterly defeated.

I tugged on her top a few more times with all my might without a single budge then tried to get her to start again. I turned the keys and she puttered but nothing. I tried again, and she did the same thing. I punched the steering wheel a few times then just laid my head on it and cried while the thunder roared and everything including myself continued to get soaked. 

 

"Rylee!" I heard someone yell over the rain.

I looked up from the steering wheel and see head lights in front of me and someone running towards me.

It was Ben.

I got out of Betty and went straight into his embrace. 

"I'm sorry!" I cried. "I love you." I buried myself into him with the rain still beating down on us. He lifted my chin up and kissed me.

My soul smiled. 

"Come on" he said guiding me to his truck.

He opened the passenger side door for me, let me hop in then slammed it shut and ran around to his side. Even in the pouring rain he's a gentleman. I was shivering, he hopped in and immediately searched for something to dry off with. 

I stared at him with so much love in my heart I felt I could burst. 

"Ben..." I said scooting to the middle and grabbing his hand. 

"I want you. I want to be yours. Before I was scared and stupid and you didn't deserve any of it. You're the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm sorry for everything." I told him. 

"You're the best thing that's ever happened to me. It's forgiven. Its forgotten. We're starting over." He forgave me gently squeezing my hand three times again.

“Why do you do that?” I asked him

“I” …squeeze...” love” ...squeeze…” you” … squeeze. He explained.

"I love you too Benjamin." I said genuinely without a doubt in my mind.

He looked deep into my eyes before leaning over to kiss me. His kiss felt so right. Like it was meant for me all along. I sank into his lips and let go of all my stress, worries and doubts. A loud boom of thunder and crackling of bright lightning made us both jump and look up. When we did we saw a huge oak tree fall onto Betty smushing her into nothing.

Two minutes ago I was still sitting in Betty.

"Ho..ly... Fuck." I said just staring at this huge tree 10 feet in front of us where my car used to be.

"I... I would be dead if you hadn't been here Benjamin... Shit..." I said still in shock.

I think he was in shock too because he just held me tightly also staring at the fallen oak.

"Why...why were you out here? How'd you find me?" I questioned him.

"I... uh..." He tried to talk, his voice shaky.

"After I left the hospital I drove back to the city but turned around before I got home because I couldn't leave things like that with you. I needed to fix it. So I came home, and my parents told me about you coming over and that they sent you to my apartment, so I was on my way back to the city to find you. And I found you stranded on the side of the road in the middle of a thunderstorm. Rylee... If I had been just five minutes later..." He shook his head with tears in his eyes.

"It would've been a much different story... I... I can’t imagine my life without you." He said.

With the rain still beating down on his truck I climbed into his lap never taking my lips off his. We melted into each other again and for the first time I turned off my brain and let my body go into autopilot. My hips rocked up and down on his lap. My hands wondered from his stomach to his shoulders then face and hair, and his did the same. He began lifting my shirt and unlocked his lips from mine. We both opened our eyes and gazed into each other’s, I could see into his soul and I saw myself there. It felt as if he were looking into my soul too. He took my shirt all the way off never breaking gaze, kissing me again instantly as he unhooked my bra from behind. I kissed his face down to his neck as he slid my bra off and began to lightly pinch my nipples. My body on auto pilot moaned into his neck and bit him softly. His dick was rock solid in his shorts underneath me and I wanted it inside me so badly I couldn't wait any longer. Still kissing his neck I unbuttoned his shorts and pulled his cock out of his boxers. It was the hottest erection I've ever seen. I'd never wanted to suck a dick so bad in my life. But no time for that. I moved back up to his lips and put my hand around it jerking up and down. "Mmm" he lets out. His hands finally make their way to my shorts to unbutton them and I lift myself up to get them all the way off. We didn't have to say a word. I sat back down on his lap slowly sliding his dick into me. We locked eyes and both gasped as it went in deeper until our bodies couldn't go any farther into each other. He wrapped his arms around me tight and kissed me hard as we made love in a way I didn't know was possible, with so much love between us, right there in the front seat of his truck with poor smushed Betty underneath a tree ten feet away.

I couldn't explain the amount of right it felt.

Steven was too rough and didn't care about me at all. I know that now.

Ryan was a mistake because I didn't even have feelings for him. It never should have happened.

Luke used me to get back at Amy, plus it was awkward and gross. I gag a little when I think about it.

But, Benjamin.

I don't know what was stopping me before.

I don't know if I was scared to be happy again because it can be taken from you in an instant.

Maybe I thought sleeping around would somehow heal me.

All I know is that Benjamin is it.

He's right.

Right in my head.

Right in my heart.

Right in my gut.

I just wish I had realized it sooner.
