SORRY I'VE BEEN SO BUSY LATELY THAT I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN AND WRITE! I WASN'T HAPPY WITH THE WAY CHAPTER 3 TURNED OUT SO I DELETED IT AND REWROTE IT! THIS IS THE NEW CHAPTER 3 AND I LIKE THIS ONE MORE SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO GO BACK AND REREAD SOME THINGS. I HAVE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF REALLY GENEROUS REVIEWS LATELY AND ONE ASKED ME TO MAKE MY CHAPTERS LONGER, SO, VOILIA! :D
Monday morning I get to school and immediately look for Nikko, I see a group of girls, all cheerleaders, gathered around his locker surrounding him. He looks kind of uncomfortable. I see the girls grabbing at his muscles and his drool-worthy six pack that you can see through his shirt when he turns certain ways. I can practically hear their hormones running through them from the other end of the hallway at my locker. I know he likes me and I like him but for some reason I just get so nervous around him and miss my chances to talk to him because I'm too scared that I will embaress myself infront of him!
I open my locker and just put my stuff away and take out my AP French book, what a lovely way to start the day, with a mean and arrogant French teacher. I hate the mornings and now I have to hear girls squeal over a boy who should be mine. I feel a guy come up behind me and slide right in between me and my locker. It's Travis, the most popular guy in the school. He's the captain of the baseball and basketball team and starting forward for the basketball team, he should also probably be modeling too if someone was ever to discover him. Damn he is hot, but Nikko's hotter. He's very confident almost to the point of being cocky. He very smoothly speaks, "So Courtney, we just won the district baseball finals and our banquet is tomorrow night. Would you like to go with me?"
"Why are you asking me ?"
"Oh, so no? I just thought that you would want to come with, I mean a lot of girls would want to come with me."
"Yeah that's probably true but I'm not one of those girls." After I put my book back into my locker and waited for him to move out of the way. After he realized I was waiting for him to move he stepped aside and I shut my locker and walked away. I took two steps when all his jock friends walked up to him and they were all talking about what just happened between us. I heard one of them say, "Oooo rejected Trav! Looks like Lane don't got time for you!"
And another said, "Looks like she don't want the D Travis!" I kept walking and as I passed Nikko's locker I just glanced over at him and saw a girl trying to put her arms around his neck so I just looked down at the ground and turned the corner. Suddenly someone ran up from behind me and grab my phone from my hands and ran a few more steps and stop and turn around. Its Nikko with a huge smile on his face. I walk up to him laughing and trying to grab my phone from his hand that he keeps raising higher and higher over his head.
"You can't reach it!"
"Nikkooooo! Give it back!" I half yelled while giggling.
"I guess you'll just have to kis-" He got cut off when the principal walked by and took my phone out of his hand and handed it back to me.
"You better not be me giving Miss Lane a hard time Alexander." Mr. Trent said walking by.
"Oh thank you sir but we're ok here." I said to the principal so he would leave.
He walked away and Nikko and I just started laughing. Right when I looked back down at my phone screen Nikko took the phone from me again! I just started laughing and couldn't get it from him no matter how high I would reach for it. When the bell rang I had to get to class so I just left my phone with him.
School was finally over and it was time to meet with the Tackies! I got to the music room where everyone was waiting with some very good news! I walked in the door and stood up on a chair. "Everybody listen! I just met with the principal during seventh hour and Spectacular! has been invited to the 10th annual Show Choir Competition and this year's location is Los Angeles! Its not for three or four months, but still!" Everybody started chattering and was very excited. "One last thing, TA-DA was not invited!" Then everybody really started to cheer and freak out. The rest of the practice we discussed the competition and what songs to sing, but Nikko never showed up. I was actually kind of getting upset because I needed my phone back! Once the practice was over everyone was walking out to their cars. I got to my car in the parking lot with a note on the window that read,
"Courtney, if you want your phone back meet me at the music store at 6
Everyone thought it was really funny and we were all laughing and talked in the parking lot for about 15 minutes. Once everybody left I checked the time and saw that it was 5:30. I had 30 minutes to drive home, change, and meet Nikko at the music store. I drove home and ran upstairs to my room and changed into dark skinny jeans, a red blazer, and black ankle boots. I left a note on the counter telling my mom that I was going to be with the Nikko until about 7. I set the note down and then left and drove to the music store. When I arrived there I looked around the store but couldn't find him so I asked a worker if he had seen him but he just simply shook his head no and walked away and walked to the other side of the store. I was alone in the corner of the store. Then suddenly I felt someone come up behind me and put their hands over my eyes and try to pull me backwards. I immediately tried to jerk out of their grip but then I they whispered into my ear, "Relax, I have a surprise." I knew it was Nikko so I let him lead me through the store, after about a minute of him winding me through isles I relized that he was just walking me through isles I stopped, took his hands off my eyes, and intertwined our fingers hand in hand. He was wearing a black v neck t shirt that was very easy to see how hot he was along with dark jeans. I got up on my tip-toes and pecked him lightly on lips and asked him what the surprise was. He nodded behind me and turned me around so that we were still holding hands but his arms were wrapped around me. I turned around and saw a huge display of our 'exclusive single: Everything Can Change.' I let go of his hands and practically ran to the display full of magazines, posters, cards for the digital download and on cd, it was crazy!
"How'd you do this!" I exclaimed and looked back at Nikko excitedly.
"I requested that if this song was to be released that you would get some of the credit, you deserve it more than I do." He said smiling to me.
"How can you say that? You're amazingly talented I have nothing to do with that!"
"But you're the one who believed in me and brought out a side of me I always tried to hide. That side was what I needed to get what I always dreamed of and you're the one who noticed that." He said sweetly back to me. I walked up to him and grabbed the collar of his shirt and kissed him on the cheek and wrapped my arms around him. After a couple seconds I let go of him took his hand and led him out the door of the store and to my car. We got into my car and I drove him home, which was only about a five minute drive. It mostly consisted of us singing along to songs that came on the radio in funny voices. When I pulled up in front of his apartment I got out of the car and walked around to the passenger side where he had gotten out of the car and was standing watching me come around the car.
After a few seconds of him just standing there looking at the ground and glancing up at me every little bit. I just started to say, "So, I should get goi-"
"Before nationals we were two completely different people. We didn't get along, we saw things different ways, and couldn't agree on anything, except for that 'show boy' was the worse guy on earth. You think he's stupid because he gave up on Spectacular! and went to TA-DA but I think he's the dumbest guy in the world because he gave up on the best girl in the world."
"I think you're amazing and these last few months I've spent with you and the tackies has showed me that I was spending my time in the wrong place with the wrong people. I like you a lot Courtney, more than I've ever liked anyone. I just need to know that you're mine and I'm yours…" After he said the sweetest thing that's ever been said to me I just wanted to jump into his arms, but I couldn't. I got on my tip toes and put my arms around his neck and slid my hands up so I was playing with his hair brought him closer to me and gently brought our lips together.
I whispered, "You're the reason I've opened up and I need you. I'm yours, I have been since you stood up for me in front of Royce." After whispering and teasingly talking to him with our lips touching when I would speak I relized how much he wanted to kiss me. I stopped the teasing and leaned in and kissed him. I ran my fingers through his hair as he put his hands on my waist. After a couple seconds of this he gripped my waist with his hands firm enough to make my eyes open from surprise. He then opened his eyes and half smiled while never losing touch of my lips. He then inched me backwards until I was leaning against my car. I moved my hands from his hair and brought them down his muscular arms and to his hands. I grabbed his hands and held them and pulled away from his kiss.
"I need to go but thank you, for everything." I walked back around to the driver's side of my car and got in and put the keys in the ignition. I looked out the window to Nikko who was staring back at me with a smile on his face just like the one he had after I kissed him backstage at nationals. As I drove away I took my phone out of my pocket checking for any missed messages. He never even felt me sneakily slide the phone out of his pocket and take it when I pulled away from his kiss.
Once I got home I headed up to my room and shut the door. I changed out of my clothes and changed into pajama shorts and the shirt that I wore when I spent the night at his house. I loved this shirt, it smelled like his cologne that I can never get enough of. It's not like he needed his shirt back, I mean he had a six pack and he looked great with less clothes. I lay on my bed staring at the ceiling thinking of him until I fell asleep.
I GOT A REQUEST TO MAKE THE CHAPTERS LONGER SO I TRIED MY BEST TO KEEP IT INTERESTING! PLEASE LEAVE REVIEWS IT SERIOUSLY HELPS SO MUCH! I'M GOING TO TRY TO HAVE THE NEXT CHAPTER OUT WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK! :D
