"Oh come on—where is he?"
I stood at the insanely cold airport terminal, shivering to the max. Sure, I had my snug brown coat, my warm black gloves, and my favorite dark blue knitted beanie hat on, but that definitely wasn't trapping all of the cold out.
Alright, so I guess you're probably wondering what I am even doing here in the first place. Ah, well, the answer to that question would be this: I had agreed to meet my best friend, Levi, here at the airport when he first arrived back from his three-week-long vacation with his family.
Of course, I wouldn't be sitting here, suffering in the winter cold for just anyone. Like I said before, Levi was my best friend…and that was definitely the only reason I was here.
For the ninety-ninth, I glanced at the large clock nearby and groaned. I was on time…but the plane was not. And there weren't any signs of it coming anytime soon, so there really was no telling when it would happen to show up.
I let out a huge, deep breath and watched it linger in the freezing, winter LA air, then evaporate. Levi so owed me for making me wait out here like this, for him.
Suddenly, I heard some muttering coming from behind me, and just as I was turning around to look, I was forced backward so hard that I hit the solid floor behind me.
It was impossible to get up, because
There was a long, hard body on top of me
My back was experiencing so much pain at the moment that I could hardly breathe; let alone stand up.
"Oh no…" a voice whispered, and the person immediately began to get up. "I am so sorry! Are you alright?"
It took a few seconds for me to do anything else but to concentrate on breathing. When I finally did catch my breath, the person held out a hand for me to take; to help me up.
I stared at his hand, and then moved my gaze upwards so that I was now staring into the most beautiful eyes I had ever seen. In my life.
They were a combination of green and hazel, and the guy's dark eyebrows framed them impeccably. His hair was a medium-blond, and he kept it at a short style. His chin was very square, but it was one of the things that made his face especially attractive.
He stared down at me as he waited for me to grab his hand. When I finally did, he pulled me up with ease. He wasn't saying anything right now, just like me…but I wondered what he was thinking.
"I'm really sorry…" he finally said again, and he looked at the ground. "Are you alright?" I cleared my throat, and realized how very much my back was hurting. "Am I alright?" I asked, angrily. "Do I look alright? I just got run over!"
He frowned and looked back at my face. "I'm really sorry about this. I was kind of in a rush to get out of here." I raised an eyebrow. "Why? Did you rob a bank or something?"
The guy seemed to crack a tiny smile. "No…nothing like that. It's just been a long year for me, and I really wanted to get back home."
My throbbing back was pounding in sync with my beating heart. It was hard being upset with this guy; with him being so attractive and everything…and he even was kind of sweet.
There was a moment of silence as we both wondered what we were going to say next. Since I had nothing, I decided to go with the instinct I had to say what was at the top of my mind. "I'm Ally," I blurted out.
His face brightened a bit, and he smiled again. "Ally…I love your name. I'm Kendall." Not a moment after I had learned his name, a voice called, causing him to turn around.
"Kendall! Come on, man! I want to get home tonight, not next Christmas!" Kendall turned back to look at me again, and he sighed. "I guess I am wanted elsewhere." My heart felt like it had been run over, just like my physical being had been. There was something simply amazing about this guy…but I didn't know what.
"Well, Kendall," I began, laughing. "Maybe we'll run into each other again, sometime. But hopefully not literally." He laughed at that, and said, "Yeah. So…I hope to see you around." He smiled at me once more, and then turned around to join his friend. Just watching him go made my heart hurt as much as my back did. What was it about this guy that had caused me to fall for him so quickly?
I suppose a good part of it had to do with his incredibly good looks…but it wasn't just that. He was so…different. It was so hard to describe what I was feeling.
He disappeared out of my eye range and I sighed, sadly. My back was still aching, yet getting run over by Kendall had to have definitely have been the highlight of my day. I honestly was hoping with all of my heart that I would see him again.
"Oh my god—Ally!" a voice exclaimed, and I turned around just in time to see Levi running toward me. Holy crap, I thought, taken completely by surprise. Since the literal run-in with Kendall, I had forgotten all about Levi, even though he was the whole reason I was here!
"Ally, you're here!" he beamed, and I offered a smile back, but not showing quite as much enthusiasm. "You told me to meet you here…so here I am."
I really enjoyed having Levi as a friend. I had known him since the 3rd grade, and ever since then, we had been best friends.
To describe him, he had short, very blond hair, and I rarely saw him without a smile. He had always been very tall for his age, and even being a junior this year, he was still growing.
He stretched out his long arms, and, still smiling, said, "Awkward hug!" I laughed and joined in on the 'awkward hug'. It was tradition for us to do this each time we met…since the 3rd grade, anyway.
"Hawaii was fun, but it would have been loads more fun if you were there," Levi sighed. I raised both of my eyebrows and leaned out of his hug, wondering what the heck he meant by that.
He let out a laugh. "No! Not like that! I mean, it would have been nice to have a friend there. I didn't know anyone there." I sighed sympathetically at him. "Yeah…I missed you, too."
Levi looked down at me and smiled really weirdly. It was much different than how he normally smiled. If he weren't my best friend, it definitely would have come across really creepy.
"So!" I said quickly, breaking the awkward silence. "How was the flight over here?" He shrugged. "Let me just say that it was a long three hours."
We began to walk away from the waiting area and made our way to the baggage claim. Levi began to go on about the water back in Hawaii as I pretended to listen. Really, I was peeking back at the spot where I had left my heart; the place where I had crashed into Kendall for the first time. Sure, that may come across cheesy…but these were my feelings.
This was also when I decided that I was going to see Kendall again, even if I had to search everywhere for him. I had to see him again. At least I already knew that he lived here in LA…I just had to figure out where, exactly.
