*Four Years Ago* *High School*

 

One day I and my parents had a fight. We were in the house and all hell just broke lose. Some mean words were said and a few slaps and punches came too. I ran out of the house crying and it was pouring rain. I ran along the road then got to the main street. My tears never stopped falling.

“Ree is that you?” Tyler Sullaven from my high school English class asked me from the back of a truck. “Yo dad, stop the truck, I’m getting down” He yelled to his father in the drivers seat. All of a sudden the truck stops and Tyler jumps out.

“Tyler be careful and I want you home” His father spoke through the window and Tyler nodded his head and the truck sped off.

“What’s wrong?” He asked me.

“Nothing I’m fine, why did you get down? It’s raining cats and dogs” I told him. He laughed.

“I’m not going to let someone like you walk in the rain all alone. I have you in a class right?” He asked.

“Yeah, English I sit two seats away from you” I told him and he smiled.

“That’s right, Marley always copies from you” he said and that made me laugh. He took his coat off and carried it above me as we ran over to the bus stop.

“Thank you so much for that but I was already soaked and wet” I told him shaking off all the water in my hair.

“It never hurts to try to cause less” He said.

“Did you learn that in English?” I asked him jokingly.

“No, of course not. I copied off of Marley” He said and we laughed together. He looked at me and smiled.

“What’s that around you neck?” He asked me.

“My camera, I love to take pictures of myself and people” I told him. It was true.

“Are you going to tell me what happened?” He asked me.

“Can I take a few pictures of us first? I still haven’t worked on my project” I told him.

“Sure” He said. In the bus stop there was a nail that hung in the middle of the back wall, that’s where I hung my camera. I put camera on self timer and I hung it on the wall.

“Are you ready?” I asked Tyler.

“Just waiting for you” He replied. I ran over to him. It was still raining but we didn’t care anymore. He placed his arm behind me and I looked up at him and smiled and the camera flashed taking that picture. He made a funny face and I was laughing for every stupid face he made and the flash went off with every face. We faced each other, I can feel him looking down on me while I was staring at the camera waiting for it to take a picture and finally the flash went off. I think we took about twenty pictures just messing around.

“Okay, I need just you then just me. Okay?” I asked him.

“That’s fine with me, I shotgun first” He said and I smiled and nodded. I took the camera down and took it off self timer. Tyler put his coat back on and popped the colors making him look mysterious and scary but yet still beautiful. He did a few professional poses then the next ten was all fun and games but all his pictures turned out great.

“Your turn” He yelled coming back into the bus stop.

“You know how to work a camera like this right?” I asked him laughing. I couldn’t help myself but to laugh.

“Of course I do” He replied. “All I have to do is press the big button and wait for the flash then bam!” he said.

“That’s fine with me” I said and went out of the bus stop to just really play in the rain. From where I stood and played in the rain all you can hear is the camera going off and laughter coming from the both of us. I forgot all about my little family feud. I was done with my photos so I went back into the bus stop and sat down on one of the benches.

“Can I print the photos for you?” Tyler asked me.

“Are you sure?” I asked him.

“It’ll be my pleasure, I had a blast with you just taking pictures” He said.

“Taking pictures always cheers me up” I told him.

“Are you going to tell me what WAS wrong?” He asked emphasizing was.

“Actually I forgot all about it because I was busy having a great time with you” I told him honestly.

“I had a great time as well, we should do it again some day” he said.

“That’s fine with me” I replied. “I better be getting home, my family must be worried” I added.

“Let me walk you back home” He suggested.

“But your house is far” I told him.

“No problem, I can use the long walk to think. Besides, i'm walking you home. It's definately worth my time” he told me and grinned at me.

“Okay, but please call me the minute you get home. Just know that you’re safe” I replied and blushed at his comment.

“I will” he said and we smiled. We got up and we started walking side by side the way we got to the bus stop. We were smiling and laughing my whole walk home. Finally we made it to my house.

“I’ll give you the pictures Monday, and I will call you when I get home” he said before he hugged me good bye.

“I’ll be waiting, and Tyler thanks for a good time” I said and smiled. We hugged again and then I watched as he walked the opposite way we came from towards his house. He had his hands in his pockets and his head faced down, for some reason I was hoping he was thinking about our time together.

 

 

 

*Monday* (At School)

 

I was on my way to my friends before I heard my name in the latest gossip that was going around. I backed up and asked the foot ball guys what they were talking about. They gave me blank stares and scared smiles.

“Answer my question will you? Are you jocks afraid of a girl?” I asked them.

“You aren’t just any girl remember that” One of them said and I laughed.

“Thanks, so tell me” I urged them.

“We heard about your day out with Tyler, there are some rumors going around saying that you’re together now” Another told me.

“I’m not so sure about being together, friends maybe but not much further. I did have a day out with him though” I explained myself.

“That’s all we need to know, thanks Ree. Hey are you coming to our game?” Another one of them asked me.

“I’ll try” I said honestly.

“Bring Tyler” Another said and they all started cracking up.

“Don’t even start with me today boys” I threatened them. They stopped laughing but still held the smile on their faces.

“Have a good day” I told them and walked away. A few hours later Tyler walked into school. It was lunch hour already so everyone was in the cafeteria. He looked lost for a moment but then he smiled as he looked at something on his binder. He went up to one of the aids and whispered something in his ear.

“Ree Guerrero, where are you?” the aid yelled out and I raised my hand. Tyler smiled and found his way towards me. He was captain of the soccer team by the way, he has a pretty high rep. in this school.

“There you are” He said and handed me an envelope.

“Where were you this morning?” I asked him and scooted over so he can sit down next to me.

“I slept late printing all the pictures and my alarm didn’t go off this morning” he explained.

“Oh, there were rumors going around this morning saying that we might be together” I told him and shoved a French fry in my mouth.

“Really? That’s fast. I thought it’ll take a week for these business minders” He said and I laughed.

“Nope, when it gets down to business, they mean business” I told him and smiled.

“Are these the pictures?” I asked him pointing at the envelope.

“Yup, look at them, they turned out pretty awesome” He said. I opened the envelope and looked through all the pictures.

“Wow these did turn out great. There is one missing though” I told him. He gave me his binder and I found the picture. It was the one where I was looking at the camera and he was looking down on me.

“Aww” My friend Anna said and slapped my arm gently.

“So you’re a thing now?” The captain of the foot ball team asked me. He was the guy from earlier. I smiled and looked at Tyler.

“Are we?” I asked him.

“That’s what I was hoping for” he replied and I kissed him and he kissed me back. I took out another picture from the envelope. It was when he was hugging me.

“You are sure going to get an A for English now Ree” Anna said beside me.
