Ch. 7 Say it Ain't So

Rick was a very nice guy and all, but Charlotte had no interest in him. He was just so not her type, he was way too tense and absolutely boring. So when Rick asked her out on a second date she said no. As nice as she could, because Charlotte was no bitch when she had no reason to be one. Charlotte decided in the end that it was time to head back to her room. She had so many questions for Eve and as soon as she got to her dorm she planned to ask them. Matt had told her that something was wrong with Eve earlier in the day, and there was no doubt in her mind that it had to do with Mr. Johnson. Unlike Matt or Eve she didn't have him as a teacher last year, she was taking English Literature instead of AP English. But she knew all about him, well she knew he was hot and young, smart and funny, and everything else the girls gushed about in the bathroom stalls.

When she arrived at her door she took out her key and quickly jimmied it into the knob. She threw her Chanel bag on the ground and made her way to Eve's room. She quietly opened her door and saw her sleeping under her covers. She looked so peaceful that she decided not to wake her.

She went to her room and threw herself in her bed. She felt so tired and bored, she really had nothing to do, Eve was asleep and plus she had no homework. She pulled out her cell phone out of her blazer pocket and called Matt. It rung a couple of times but he didn't answer. What was this boy up to now? She wondered. It seemed like he was always doing something he wasn't supposed to do, but so was she. So she called the next person that came to mind. Alex.

"Hello?" Alex said through the phone.

"Hey Alex! What are you up to" Charlotte said casually as she picked at her red ruby nail polish.

"Nothing much I just came out of Lacrosse practice"

"So do you mind showing me some lacrosse moves?" She asked hoping he would say yes so she could actually have something to do tonight.

"Right now?"

"Yeah" she told him and she heard him laugh

"Alright, come by the field and I'll be there" She agreed and she hung up. She went into her closet and picked out some yoga pants and a gray school sweatshirt. She grabbed her phone and happily left the room.

When Charlotte arrived to the field she noticed Alex right away in the field with equipment. She walked over to him and gave him a hug and a quick kiss on his cheek.

"Haven't seen you in a while" Alex told her as he handed her a stick. Charlotte took it from him and eyed it curiously.

"Yeah, what it's been almost three months" Charlotte told him as. "So what do you do with this?"

"Oh okay, so this is the head and this controls the ball" He said pointing to the particular part in the stick. "This is the mesh, which is the rope and the shaft gives the strength" Charlotte started laughing as soon as he finished explaining. "What?"

"It just sounded like you were describing a penis" she giggled and made Alex giggle too. He was so different from his brother Matt. Matt was more mysterious and dark, while Alex was athletic, funny, outgoing and everybody loved him. He had short and light brown hair, with Matt's same eye color. Plus he was captain of both the Lacrosse team and football team.

"Yeah go ahead laugh it off. So how was your summer?" he asked her.

"Great. I stayed in LA all the time except yesterday I came back from Fiji"

"Sounds like fun, why wasn't I invited?" He asked raising and eyebrow

"Don't feel offended" she laughed "I didn't even invite Matt or Eve."

"Eve," He said thoughtfully looking up the night sky. It was getting late but thankfully the field lights were on so they could see each other clearly. "How is she? I saw her the other day but she was just interested in seeing Matt" Charlotte shrugged because she herself didn't know what was going on with Eve.

"I dunno. I just know Matt sometimes needs babysitting. Why don't you start acting like a big brother for once and helped him out" she said jokingly nudging him in the arm.

"That kid needs help, but it's not coming from me. He is way too into himself. He acts like the world revolves around him and he doesn't look at the big picture, he does things so recklessly. He doesn't think, he doesn't listen. I cant tell him what to do, he won't listen, and trust me I have tried to help him out but I'm tired of holding his hand ever since mom died." They stayed quiet for a while, knowing that Charlotte went in an inhabitable place for him. And she knew all too well about those kinds of family problems. Her own mother wouldn't even tell her who her real dad was. All she knew was that he was famous and that every month they received a check from him in the mail.

"Okay so how do you play?" She asked cheerfully. They played the whole night, well at least Charlotte tried to play. She was no good at sports, she was always so clumsy with that. After a while they both gave up and just decided to lay on the grass to look up at the sky.

"It's such a beautiful night" Alex commented softly with his hands in the back of his head.

"Yeah, it is" Charlotte replied even though there was no reason to.

"How's your mom?"

"Ugh, the same. Still parties, dates, anddresses like she's twenty" She said bitterly. "She should grow up someday and be a mom" She shifted to her sided and looked straight at Alex. "I mean, she's never there! She so doesn't care for either me or my sister. I hate her so much. The thing that frustrates me the most is not that she was never there for me, but that she's never there for my little sister. She needs a mom more than I ever did." She could tell that Alex actually cared about what she was saying not like some other guys who pretended just to get in her pants.

"My dad can be that way sometimes, except he doesn't party, date, or even dress like he's 20" he said with a sly smirk in his face. "Charlotte,'" Alex said after a while had passed. "you are so pretty" He took his hand and brushed his palm against it. Charlotte couldn't help but blush.

"Thank you" she whispered. He put some loose blonde strands of hair behind her ear and leaned in close.

"Matt should love you instead of Eve" he whispered.

"What do you mean?" she asked as she moved her face away from him.

"I really like Eve, and Matt really likes her too. I would expect him to be attracted more to you, since you are more of his type" Charlotte rose from the ground and Alex followed suit.

"Could you be more of a jerk? I poured my soul out to you and all along you had it out for my best friend"

"Well, no, I cared about what you said, I really did. I just felt like I should tell someone about my feelings towards her, I never meant anything different." He said. Charlotte shook her head mumbled a whatever and walked away.

There was no use talking to boys, they knew nothing about a girl's feelings.

Dude, I feel like I'm missing out Australia doesn't do lacrosse! The closest I've ever come to lacrosse was when we did it in P.E and I hit one of my friends in the mouth with the stick! Do we even have a lacrosse team?! What do they do in lacrosse? I'm full of questions!

Oh poor Charlotte! I do think guys are oblivious to girls emotional feelings though. I now don't want Alex to end up with either Charlotte and defo not Eve. Alex is supposed to be the older guy who knows things, but clearly, he doesn't!
I was really excited for Charlotte, but then he ruins it! Come on Alex! Man up!
He's not even a great older brother to be honest if he can't persuade Matt to stop his habit.
But I love that he plays Lacrosse though! I remember doing that in primary school! So much fun!
I also love how complex all your characters are, like Charlotte's dad is famous! I cannot wait to find out who! Bet that's going to cause problems!
This story could so easily be like a teen drama series on TV!
Love it! Please post again soon-but you're amazing with updating so don't really need to ask!:D

YeH it's kinda sad! And that's true guys are so oblivious to everything!!! I know sen houvh he's older he is not mature at all! I know I was excited for charlotte seeing that she had a chance with a guy, but no he had to ruin it. LOL yeah alex should man up and be a real brother. Really you played? Did you like it? Haha I find it kinda hard:/ that is I tried to make all the characters complex and messed up! Really you think so? Wow I really appreciate that:] gosh you are way too kind! Thanks for reading!

... Grrr Matt. Why does he have to be so stupid!! And ya know, I'm starting to think that Eve really should have just told on him. All she had to say was that he was lying. And I mean she could also just say that he raped her every time if her past would come up during that time. I know lying is bad, but technically it is rape since she is a minor and her teacher is obviously an adult! Haha

Also, about Alex... wow. I feel so bad for Charlotte. He could only listen for so long until he had to ruin it by mentioning his feelings for Eve. I wonder if Charlotte ever gets jealous of her. I mean Eve has two totally hot guys that really like her (in Matt's case, love)...

Ahhhh please let me know when you update!! (:

Thu, December 17th, 2009 5:52am


You know, that's actually sounds like a good idea for her. LOL yeah even though lying is bad in her case that's the least of her problems. And you are so right everyone is capeable of believing her since she is the victim. You know it's funny that you mention the jealousy towards eve from charlotte because evn though I haven't mentioned it eve is kinda jealous of charlotte. Charlotte is always getting the guys well at least on my mind. LOL now I sound crazy hahaha. Of course I was planning on updating today but I fell asleep but now it's too late and can't. Thanks for reading I really really appreciate it:]
