"Oi Ginger, someone is looking for you." Fat Amy shouted.
I went towards the front door and was shocked to see my brother, Cody and his best-friend Jesse standing by the door.
"Hey little bug!" He said, opening his both arms wide. I embraced my brother tightly before facing Jesse.
"Jesse! I missed you." I hugged him.
All of a sudden, I was lifted in the air by strong arms around my waist, right after I broke the hug with Jesse.
As soon as my feet were on the ground, I quickly turned myself to see my dad and my mom grinning widely at me.
"Mom! Dad!" I squealed. This couldn't get any better!
"I thought you couldn't make it?" I said still hugging my dad.
"You thought we'll miss our little bug birthday party? Never!" My dad spoke, still not letting go of me.
"Happy birthday, sweetheart." My mom lightly ruffled my hair.
"Mom...!" I groaned while they laughed at my antic.
"Sorry we're late though. Dad insisted on us getting a pink ribbon for this." Cody gestured to a medium sized white box.
"Awww... You shouldn't have."
Everybody knew that pink is my favourite colour.
"So where's the party?" Jesse asked.
"Come on in, but first, you guys are not dressed for the party." I pouted, playfully.
Without second thought, they stripped to their swimsuit. Cody and Jesse were wearing a surfer shorts while mom was wearing Audrey Hepburn's bikini like. What really shocked me was my dad's swimwear. He was actually wearing a black speedo!
"Did I over dress?" He asked.
"You kinda underdressed, dad." I chuckled and led them in.
My eyes were scanning for Beca and Kelvin but none of them were seen. They must have hid somewhere, I thought to myself.
I didn't know what would happen if Kelvin and my dad were to come face to face again. If I were to be honest, I was scared!
Aubrey came and greeted my family, complimenting them on their choices of swimwear.
I spotted two people talking by the pool area and it was none other than Beca and her dad.
Beca's gaze landed on me and I gave her an encouraging nod. Well, At least I thought it was encouraging enough.
Beca approached us awkwardly.
"Mom, dad, everyone? I would like you to meet my girlfriend, Beca. Beca M-Mitchell.
My dad's facade changed in an instant.
"Mr Beale, Mrs Beale." Beca greeted in a shaky voice. My dad looked like as if he was going to skin Beca alive, while my mom's expression turned worried.
"Dad?" I called.
To my dismay, my dad turned around and headed back to the entrance door without a word, leaving us speechless.
"Dad, stop! Please!" I chased him.
"Chloe, I've warned you."
"Go back to your party." He insisted.
"Dad, please. I'm in love with her!" I shouted, gaining attention from everybody in the room.
"Obviously, you love her more than you love me." He shook his head in disappointment.
"Clarence." Said someone from behind me.
I turned to see Kelvin Mitchell approaching us.
Help me dear Lord! This is it!
My dad and Kelvin were having some kind of a death glaring contest. I was very sure there would be a wrestling match soon, but lucky for me, it didn't happen.
"I told you not to get close or speak to any of them, Chloe." Dad turned to me.
"I don't want to embarrass you. Go back to your party." Dad cut me.
"I want you to stay. It's my birthday, dad. Please stay." I begged, with tears threatening to fall from my eyes.
"Together with them? No way, Chloe!" Dad yelled.
Everyone went mute. Even Luke who was spinning at the DJ booth stopped.
"You know what? We'll go. Happy birthday, Chloe. Have a great party." Kelvin put a hand on my shoulder while he had his other hand pulling Sheila with him.
"No, Kelvin, please. I don't want either of you to leave!" I cried.
Dad didn't say anything, but he stared deep into my eyes before turning away to leave when Beca stopped him.
"Mr Beale, please don't go. It's your daughter's birthday. We'll go." She then turned to Kelvin. "Come on, dad."
Kelvin smiled at her and put an arm around Beca's shoulder.
We were about to leave when Chloe grabbed my wrist.
"Baby, please don't." She cried out loud.
My heart was aching, looking at Chloe with tears rolling down her cheeks continuously. I hate to see my girlfriend crying, but I couldn't do anything.
I smiled at her and loosened her grip.
"It seems that Chloe wants you more than she wants me here. It's okay, you stay." Mr Beale spoke to me.
I saw him clenching his jaw tightly. Disappointment and anger were written all over his face. I didn't understand why Mr Beale really hated us so much.
I knew he had a huge misunderstanding with my dad about my mom, but I am my mom's daughter. I mean come on, I thought my mom was the love of his life and I'm her daughter! He could at least accept me!
"Dad, stop doing this to me! I love you and I don't wanna lose you, but I love Beca too. Don't make me choose between the both of you. I can't live without you two!" Chloe cried harder.
"Chloe, I swear, if you were to be with her, then you'll never have my blessing, ever!" Mr Beale stated, firmly.
Ouch! That hurts!
"Dad, I really love you, and I'll do anything for you, but I'm in love with Beca, dad." Chloe cried.
It seems that Clarence Beale is way stubborn than Chloe Beale!
Chloe took everyone off guard. She crashed a beer bottle down on a table, which was neatly arranged on her left side. "If I have to choose either one of you then..." She placed the broken bottle directly to her neck and everyone in the room gasped.
"No, Chloe please don't!" It was my turn to cry. I got panicked looking at the situation. I lost control of myself. The thought of loosing the one and only Chloe Beale was invading my mind. My tears started rolling down without me realizing.
"I'm sorry, Beca. I just can't live without the both of you."
"I can't live without you too." I uttered. Without second thought, I broke another bottle, took a deep breath and was ready to shove it on my neck.
"Please don't do this. We can talk about it." My dad tried to cool us down.
"Wait!" Fat Amy shouted. We all had our gaze turned to her.
"I'm scared of blood. If you guys really wanna die, take these, my sleeping pills." Fat Amy handed us a hand full of white coloured pills from a bottle.
"Amy! What the fuck are you doing?!" Aubrey scolded.
"Here, down it with alcohol. You'll die in an instant." She gave us a bottle of Jack Daniel each before stepping back joining the crowd.
I swear Fat Amy's just so weird some times.
"What the hell are you doing?!" Mr Beale screamed.
"You guys should be thanking me. At least it won't be a painful death." Fat Amy replied with a poker face.
"Beca, Chloe, please don't. That shit is really strong. Amy took two and she slept for almost two days! I thought she was dead!" Luke voiced out.
I turned to see Chloe who was still crying. "I love you, Chlo-Chlo and I'll always will." I said, sincerely.
"I love you more, Jerry. We'll meet again very soon." Chloe smiled at me, with tears clouding her eyes.
We were about to down the pills when Mrs Beale and my dad shouted in sync, "Wait!"
"You're just gonna stand there and see two innocent people taking their lives away because of you still living in your past? You're one selfish motherfucker, Clarence! They got nothing to do with this! Why must they sacrifice their love for some misunderstanding bullshit we had, 30 years ago?! You had your heart broken and now you wanna break your daughter's heart by separating them both?! Stop living in the past! If you hate me so much than kill me! I'm the one deserved to die! For God sake, they have absolutely nothing to do with this!" My dad yelled to Mr Beale.
For the first time in my life, I heard my dad using vulgarities on another human being. Everyone went completely silent.
"He's right, Clarence. Our bug had nothing to do with your past. Fate brought them together. You're looking at two innocent souls trying to take their lives away just for the mistakes or whatever problem you guys had in your early days. Please don't do this, honey." Mrs Beale sobbed.
The silence in the room was way creepy with that amount of crowd in it. It was as if everybody stopped breathing for a moment.
"If this is the choice I have to make? Chloe, Beca, you have my blessing." Mr Beale spoke, after it felt like hours waiting for him to say something.
"Really?" Chloe and I harmonized.
Okay, I didn't expect that!
"Yeah, you got my blessing. Your lives are way more precious than anything else. And Kelvin?" He turned to face my dad, "You're right. I can't be living in my past. I-I-I'm sorry." Mr Beale broke down and my dad caught him in a tight embrace.
My dad led Mr Beale to a corner, away from the crowd, while Mrs Beale and Sheila following suit.
The small crowd were seemed whispering among each other.
Aubrey and Stacie came closer to us.
"You guys okay?" Aubrey asked while Chloe and I nodded in an instant, with a smile spread on our faces.
"What just happened?" Stacie asked.
"It's complicated." I told her.
"What exactly happened between them?" Chloe questioned, pointing towards our parents who seemed to be clearing the air between them.
"Trust me, you don't wanna know." I chuckled.
"Please don't keep me in the dark, baby. No more secrets. I'm tired of it." Chloe frowned, trying to wipe her smudged mascara from her face.
Who am I to keep a secret away from Chloe after that adorably cute, sad face she gave me, right?
"Your dad and my mom used to date and my dad and your dad used to be best friends but my dad ended up with my mom and your dad couldn't accept it thinking that my dad was the one sabotaging his relationship when actually his dad hated my mom so he was the one spreading rumours about my mom that made them broke up, so your dad had a bad depression because he thought that the love of his life ran away with his best-friend and his condition got worst when he found out that my mom got married to my dad. You gathered?" I explained in one breath.
Chloe's mouth went agape while listening to my long explanation. "Wow, they really has a long complicated history."
"Yup!" I nodded, without taking my eyes away from our parents.
"To be honest, I don't really like my grand. He's a dick." Chloe said, bluntly.
"Chloe, do you mind if I borrow your skirt? I feel so uncomfortable with your family around while my hot butt cheeks are exposed." Stacie gestured to my girlfriend, pointing at her white wrapped skirt she was wearing.
"You? Uncomfortable? What have you done to Stacie?" I teased, earning a 'don't you start, midget!' glare from Stacie.
"Sure." Chloe responded quickly, undoing her translucent skirt and handing it to Stacie.
I nonchalantly took Fat Amy's sleeping pill in hand and popped it in my mouth.
"What are you doing?!" Chloe shrieked.
"Oh don't worry. It's just mint." I winked.
"You fucker! I thought it was really sleeping pills!" Chloe smacked my stomach.
"CR ordered this together with all the candies." I pouted rubbing my tummy. It was a hard smack!
"I love happy endings..." Fat Amy chimed it, handing us some shot glasses.
"None for you, thank you." Chloe quickly snatched the shot glass from my casted hand.
"Fine!" I slightly frowned, before popping another pill in my mouth.
"Slow down shortcake. You don't wanna get turned on to the max level. I swap it with sex pills." Fat Amy informed, as soon as she saw me eating those pills like as if I was eating nuts.
"What?!" I shrieked, automatically spitting it out from my mouth.
"Kidding!" Fat Amy shouted in an instant, while the rest burst into a loud laughter.
I was really happy to see everything was going on smoothly. Our parents seemed to be doing a lot of catching up together. The genuine smile on their faces made me feel contented during that moment. Finally, things were going just the way I wanted it to be.
There was one thing left to do though. I needed to apologize to my sweetheart regarding her bike.
"Hey birthday princess!" Beca nudged me.
"Hey! I was just thinking about you."
"Good then! Will you go upstairs with me for a while?" She winked.
"Baby, I'm not gonna have sex with you when our parents just literally accepting the fact that we're together."
"Who said anything about having sex?" Beca replied, nonchalantly.
She pulled me by my hand, leading me upstairs to one of the many rooms.
I sat on the edge of the bed while Beca closed the door behind her. My eyes were raking my girlfriend's body. My breathing got heavier even without Beca touching me.
"I wanna show you something." She said, opening the closet and taking out a wrapped black box.
"What is this?" I asked.
"Open it." She directed.
I did like what I was told and to my surprise, I found myself holding on to a pair of an amazing red, Jimmy Choo shoes.
Beca quickly cut my sentence off with her lips attaching to mine. While still kissing me, she took the new shoes off of my hands.
"You were serious about killing yourself back there?" Beca suddenly asked.
"And let you stay alive, so you can bang all the hot chicks in the world? Never!" I replied, trying to be as serious as possible.
Beca put a hand on her chest, pretending to hurt and I giggled. I hope Beca knew I was really serious about it.
"You have any idea why I chose Titanium and 500 Miles?"
"But Titanium has always been my lady jam." I bit my lower lips.
Beca smiled and shook her head, "Too much info. Anyway, I chose that songs because I always think of myself as titanium and the lyrics in 500 Miles are really what I wanna do with you."
She began to sing softly. "When I come home, oh, I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you. And if I grow old, well, I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you."
She all of a sudden drop to her knees and took off my shoes that I was wearing.
"What're you doing?" I asked, looking down at Beca who was smiling at me.
"Chloe Beale, will you be my Cinderella?" She put those lovely pairs of red Jimmy Choo's on my feet.
I went speechless. Again, my eyes were clouded with unshed tears. Is Beca proposing to me?
"I know it's too soon to ask, but just now really scare the hell out of me. I hate the thought of loosing you and it hurts me when ever I see you cry. When you took the broken beer bottle and brought it nearer to your neck, I really thought that I might not see you again and the thought of not being able to be with you already took my life away. That is why I wanted to kill myself too, because I can't live without you."
Beca's eyes bore into mine. I was still speechless.
"Baby, I'm not asking you to make the decision now. I just want you to know that I want you to be mine, and me being yours forever. I've never done this before but, baby, I really want you to be my lifetime partner."
Without me realizing, my tears came rolling down my cheeks, smudging my mascara even more. I pulled Beca up and embraced her tightly.
"I'll be more than honoured to be your lifetime partner, Jerry." I spoke.
We sealed the deal with a passionate kiss. I didn't wanna let go. Every time I kissed her, I felt the entire zoo going wild in the pit of my stomach. I felt my brain exploded with fireworks. I knew Beca was the one from the first time I met her. After all of the ups and downs that we had been through, I knew I will find happiness being together with her.
Our kiss became heated. Beca had her hand dangerously close to my private. Wearing just a bikini was difficult enough to hide the wetness in between my legs.
"I thought you don't wanna have sex with me?" Beca broke the kiss, while I chuckled.
"Yeah, why don't we relax for a minute before things get way out of hand?" I laughed.
I knew I wouldn't be able to control myself if we were to continue our make out session. Well, you can't blame me! I missed my girlfriend!
"Baby, I'm really sorry about your bike. Trust me, I really wanted to tell you the truth but I was interrupted and then I just forgotten. I know that was really childish." I pouted.
Beca softly laughed and put an arm around me.
"That pouty look won't work on me anymore."
I was shocked to hear that. Everybody knows that I could get away easily with that look.
I wanted to reply but there was a knock on the door.
"I hope you guys are not naked because I'm coming in!" Aubrey shouted from the other side of the door.
I quickly took a pillow and placed it on my lap to cover the obvious wetness on my bikini bottom.
"Hey!" Beca and I greeted Aubrey awkwardly while sitting side by side.
"What the hell is your ex doing here?" Aubrey gestured to Beca.
"You mean Emma? She's not my ex and yes, I invited her."
"Of coz you invited her. For what? To flirt with my girlfriend?" She narrowed her eyes at Beca, before stomping off of the room.
Beca let out a loud sigh.
"I see you and Emma are okay now."
"Baby, I felt sorry for accusing her. I've made things clear between us and surprisingly she's okay with it that I only wanna be with you." Beca spoke in all seriousness and it just melted my heart.
I some how understood Beca's situation. I mean, Emma wasn't at fault to begin with. Beca was mad at her because she thought it was Emma who flattened her tyres when it was actually me who did it.
"Let's go downstairs before Aubrey becomes all 'incredible hulk' towards Emma." Beca chuckled and stood up.
"Not until you forgive me." I said, doing the puppy eyes.
Beca leaned down and kissed me again. I could feel the pool in between my core was growing. "I forgive you but I'll think of something to punish you later. Now come on, before I go all 'incredible hulk' on you, we should go." She said in a husky voice.
"I hate to break this to you but, I'm kinda in a middle of a huge situation right now." I took the pillow off of my lap and showed Beca the obvious wetness on my bikini bottom.
"Thank God I'm wearing black!" She snickered.
I face palmed myself while Beca giggled. With no bathroom on the room we were in, we had no choice but to think of something else.
"The pool?" Beca suggested.
I quickly took off the new shoes I had on and Beca did the same thing with the sneakers.
"The pool." I agreed.
"Alright, on the count of three, you run, I'll chase." Beca said.
I nodded my head and on the count of three I ran out of the room over to the pool area while Beca chasing after me.
