The Story of Us



My eyes fluttered open. I had had the best dream ever last night. Caleb had told me he loved me, we kissed, and then fell asleep in each other’s arms.

I sat up stretching out my arms. Finally I observed my surroundings. I wasn’t in my room, lying on my bed. I was in Caleb’s. Memories of last night flooded through my mind. A smile spread across my face. I touched my lips swearing I could still feel his on mine.

Soon, all the negative thoughts entered me. I had wanted this for years, but I could have just ruined two good friendships. Mine and Sky’s and mine and Caleb’s. He would be leaving for college in three short months anyways. Caleb would completely forget about me. A college guy doesn’t have time for stupid high schoolers.

Then I remembered one major detail of last night. Caleb was completely wasted. He wasn’t in his right mind.  Everything he said, everything he did, wasn’t him.

I felt my heart fall apart.

I had to get out of here.

I jumped out of Caleb’s bed, straightening my  black dress, which was wrinkled from last night. I tipped toed over to his desk, yanking my red leather jacket off his chair. I grab my heels of the floor holding them in my hands.

I glanced over at Caleb, praying he was still dead asleep. He turned onto his side, letting out a huge snore.

When I got to my house I slipped through the back door and up to my room. I slammed my body onto my bed, letting my emotions going into over drive.


I sprinted down to my beach backyard, taking a break after my two mile run. Usually running helped me clear my mind, but my thoughts were still in a jumbled up mess.

I tossed my shoes, and yanked my socks off. I sat down in the sand, and let my feet soak in the gulf water.

“Hey.” A voice said behind me. I jerked back to find Caleb. I suddenly felt insecure. His black hair was in a perfect mess, and he was wearing a white t-shirt, and black basket ball shorts. I on the other hand, was wearing a baggy t-shirt and old running shorts. My hair was in a pony tail, loose strands matted onto my forehead. And to top it all off I was drenched in my own sweat.

“Um hey.” I replied, plastering a smile on my face. He starred at me for a while, his face hard as stone. I stood up, whipping the sand off my butt.

“We need to talk.” He mumbled. “About what?” I asked trying to seem completely oblivious. “About the kiss. About what I said.” Caleb said, obviously getting irritated.

“Caleb-“ I started, but he quickly cut me off. “Amanda, I meant everything I said, I love you.” I felt my jaw drop. “And you can’t say that kiss didn’t mean anything. I felt it and I know you did too.” He added.

I bit my lip almost drawing blood. Caleb looked so vulnerable. I wanted him. I wanted him bad.

But I couldn’t have him. He would be leaving in three months, starting another chapter in his life. Even if me and Caleb were together if things didn’t work out, it could damage me and Sky’s friendship.

I felt tears brim my eyes, but I quickly swiped them away. “I’m sorry Caleb.” I tried my best to keep my voice steady. “I just don’t feel that way towards you.”

As soon as I turned to walk away I felt the tears escaped my eyes. I didn’t dare to look back. I knew if I did, I would run back to him, begging him to let me be his.


Sorry for the long wait guys. Let just say some things have happened over the past couples of days. Everythings good now(: Tell me what you think in the comments(:
