I know it has been forever since the last update but life has been stressing me out and everything is very hectic again. I know same excuse but trust me when I say my life is never boring. Love is sooo complicated lol but I'm not giving up yet. This chapter will probably be a two part because this part is short because I have had lots of writer's block but I want to give you what I have so far and finish it later ok. Thanks all my reviewers especially Jamie you ROCK! Really, I love hearing your input because you never give up Thanks BUNCHES! This chapter goes out to you.
Oh yea to Marissa Atwood no this is not simmy sorry.
Marissa awoke to a pair of crystal blue eyes piercing through her soul, reading her inner thoughts. His gentle touch on her porcelain skin made both hearts flutter with love. Nestling in his chest gave each a sense of love never felt before.
"Good morning." Marissa spoke softly to a fully awaken Ryan while pulling away from his warm embrace. Her bruised ribs painfully reminding her of the night events. Remembering the ending brought a smile to her face. Ryan was hers.
"Good morning. Did you sleep good?" Noticing Marissa's slow movements Ryan helped her up, silently wishing her pain away. His guilt still lingering in the back of his mind.
"Yeah it was wonderful waking up in your arms." Marissa replied meeting Ryan with a kiss. Seeing the clock upon the dusty brown desk made her break away from temptation, 10:30. "We're late."
"Yeah so. I'm always late." Ryan said leaning in to kiss his girlfriend only to be cut off by her silky thumb.
"Yea well I'm never late. We got to go." Marissa said as she heard the door swing open.
Summer and Seth stepped in already dressed just not for school as they fed their hunger with a honey bun.
"Go where?" Summer asked making her way to a chair across from the new couple.
Shooting his brother a death glare Ryan spoke with a warning. "What happened to knocking Seth?"
Remembering Marissa's finger on Ryan's mouth Seth spoke with comic while trotting over to his girlfriend. "Didn't look like you were doing anything. By the way Marissa your dad called last night looking for you."
Panic washed over her as she remembered the conversation Jimmy had before entering their new lives, and their agreement. Jimmy knew Chino and he knew the dangers of living there. That was one of many reasons they promised always be honest if they were ever in trouble. Thinking of her dad's exact words made her quiver, if anything happens we will leave immediately. SShe couldn't leave now, not when she finally had everything she wanted. "What did you tell him Seth?"
Not completely understanding the importance of the question Seth just spoke with jokes. "I told him you were beat up and staying here."
"WHAT?" Marissa practically screamed at a now scared Seth.
Amazed at Marissa's anger Seth decided it best to tell the truth. "I told him you were at Summer's. Chill."
Coming back Marissa asked the most desperate question, needing her dad to be naïve to her lies. "Oh ok Sorry. Did he believe you?"
Confused at Marissa's sudden calmness he answered "Yea he sounded like he did but he said to call him when you can."
Attempting to assure her best friends mind Summer spoke. "Yea Coop its fine now it's just the four of us we have the day to ourselves."
Breathing in the fresh air of Newport brought back old memories for Marissa good and bad as she thought back to her once perfect life of Newport Beach. Picnics with her family, tanning with Holly, her first kiss with Luke, everything most important in her life had pretty much occurred on this very beach. The beach she now walked on with her new best friends and new boyfriend. Letting out a sigh Marissa realized how much her life truly changed in the past six months but instead of wishing for the "perfect" life she used to have she felt happy, satisfied, with her new one. At least now, she didn't have to pretend, she could finally be herself. Now was figuring out whom that was exactly.
Ryan watched in awe at Marissa's long brown hair flying through the cool breeze. Being with her made all of his dreams come true, to him Marissa was amazing. Although he had only known her for a few days, it seemed like a lifetime. He felt like he knew everything about her but really he only knew a little, there were so many layers to uncover and he could not wait to find the real Marissa Cooper.
Noticing Ryan's eyes bearing down at her Marissa spoke with curiosity "What."
The sound of Marissa's voice pulled Ryan out of his stance. "Nothing." He replied while placing his hand in hers.
Feeling Ryan's hand in hers brought a smile to Marissa's face before she gave it a small squeeze.
Elsewhere Summer had dragged Seth off to the Pier allowing Ryan and Marissa some alone time to make up for earlier. Standing over the Ocean watching the waves come in made Summer feel free. She remembered times her and her mother would come out while her father was away and sit on the beach and watch the waves while both eating an ice cream cone. Her mother would always say when "I die I want to be cremated and have my ashes thrown throughout the ocean." Despite Summer's desperate plea for her mother's wishes to come true, Neil insisted she be buried along with the rest of their family. Summer never forgave him for that.
"So where are we eating?" Seth asked having hunger pains.
Hearing her boyfriend's voice brought Summer out of her time warp and back to reality. "I don't know. Are you already hungry, we just ate?" Summer said referring to their previous snack.
"Already ate? Summer that honey bun three hours ago." Seth replied.
"You know it amazes me how much you eat and you're still skinny. You eat more than I do and I still weigh more than you." Summer said putting her hands on her hips.
"Fast metabolism. I get it from my mom." Seth said looking smug.
"At least I don't have chicken leg arms." Summer said poking Seth's right arm while laughing.
"Hey I don't have chicken leg arms. I have muscle." Seth pulled his arm up in attempt to show muscle.
"Sure Cohen. Whatever you say." Summer said nodding. "Hey guys." she said noticing Ryan and Marissa walking up.
"Hey you guys hungry? I know a great place we can go. Me and Ryan are headed there now." Marissa asked the two.
"Yeah see Summer I'm not the only who's hungry." Seth said
"Ok its right-" Marissa turned only to see the one person she never wanted to again. Her mother.
Ok so I know it sucked and was rushed but I really wanted to get this up before school started, 14 days I am actually looking forward to High School lol. It will get better hopefully but since you guys actually still review which let me know you haven't given up I thought you deserved something for your long wait which I am very sorry for but it's been really complicated here. Anyway don't forget to review let me know any ideas you have or anything although I have something somewhat big planned I think unless I change my mind. Just review with whatever I love to get them. Thanks for reading.
