A/N: Thank you so much for the reviews. You guys are great (:. Although I'm not getting many, for the ones that has reviewed. You guys are my favorite people ever. For the one's reading and NOT reviewing. I still like you. Lol. Here's chap. 3.
"Of course." She replied with a smile. She raised up and gave me a peck on the lips. "Bye Will." She said with a wave.
I stood there for a couple of seconds before I whispered. "Bye Sa5m."
I sighed. I walked back into the math class. What was wrong with me? She seems like she is extremely happy now, which makes me happy. I smiled. Sa5m. Her voice, her smile, her touch, just everything about her made me feel so amazing. Everything that went on with Charlotte yesterday was still fresh on my mind. She wanted her spot back, but I couldn't give it to her. That was Sa5m's spot. I couldn't do that to her. Then again, the spot WAS Charlotte's before it was Sa5m's. I didn't know what to do. I finally accepted the offer from David Bowie. We were wanted in New York next week for recording. Just so happened, that is Thanksgiving break. My mom wasn't pleased, but honestly, what could I do. Tell David Bowie no? I sighed again. I just didn't know what to do anymore.
"Will, is there something I can help you with?" Ms. Lockwood said to me. I looked around. No one was there. I figured that class was over. I was so deep in thought that I didn't even hear the bell ring.
"No, Ms. Lockwood sorry." I stood up and walked out of the class.
I walked into my Human Studies class. It apparently was a two part class. I missed that when it came to get classes after I moved here last semester. I took my seat in the back next to Sa5m, who gave me a big smile. I smiled back. I looked to the front. I saw that we had a substitute teacher. I smiled because I knew it was just going to be a free period. I looked at Sa5m. I scooted my desk next to hers.
"So, where are we going to after school?" She asked me.
I shrugged my shoulders. "We could always go to the Barnes & Noble in New York. Or you know, the Wal-Mart down the street?" I said. She looked at me.
"Let's go to New York. I mean if you want to?" She asked.
"Yea, New York sounds really good. I want to get out of here for awhile. Getting to…Crowded." I said.
"What do you mean?" She asked.
"I'll tell you later." I said. I knew I wasn't going to tell her later. It upset me to know I was lying to her. She nodded. Why I don't know, but she nodded. Maybe she knew that I was keeping something from her. Maybe she was just dropping the subject. The truth is I don't like this. I just wanted everything back to the way it was a few weeks ago. She looked at me.
"What's wrong Will? You aren't acting like yourself." She said. The bell rang. I got up to leave and she grabbed my arm. "Will, tell me. Please?" She asked. I looked at her. She looked really upset. I pulled her into a hug.
"Ben called me Dewey this morning." I said partly telling her the truth. She looked at me like she didn't understand.
"Dewey….?" She asked. I remembered. I never told her the story. I swallowed.
"It's nothing. He's just being a jerk." I said. She pulled away from me.
"If you want me to leave you alone, that's all you have to say." She said looking hurt. She walked away.
"Sa5m, wait. Come back." I said standing outside of the doorway. She was gone.
The rest of the day passed by very slowly. We had the rest of our classes together, but she hardly looked at me, much less spoke. She sat with me and Basher. She hardly spoke to either of us. Basher got up and left us before lunch was even over. I sighed. Lunch ended and we went to the last class of the day. The class went by very slow. The bell rang and Sa5m jumped up and left very swiftly. I followed her.
"Sa5m… Sa5m..Will you please just talk to me?" I asked her. She turned around with a huge amount of hurt in her eyes.
"Why? You won't even tell me what's bothering YOU Will, why should I talk to you?" She snapped at me. I was taken back just a little bit. What was I going to say.
"Sa5m. Just please come to New York with me. Please. I'll explain everything there. I promise." I said. She looked down. A second passed and she looked back up at me with a smile.
"Okay." She said softly. "I'll go."
I smiled at her and took her hand. We walked to the subway station to get on the subway. We got there and we started on our way to New York. We arrived and got off the subway.
"I'm hungry Will, I didn't eat lunch today." She said.
"I know..I was there." I said slowly. "Why didn't you eat?" I asked.
"I was upset and worried with you. I just think that something's wrong with you, and I really want to know what." She said. I looked at her and sighed.
"I'll tell you. I will, just not right now. Before we leave New York I'll tell you everything you need to know Sa5m. I promise." She smiled at me and took my hand into hers.
"Okay." She gripped my hand tighter as we started walking. "Where do you want to eat at?" She asked. I heard her stomach rumble.
"Tell you what, you can pick this time. Anywhere you want." She was quiet for a minute.
"I don't know. Pizza?" She asked.
"Pizza it is then." We went to the little pizzeria and ordered a pizza. We sat there and had a great time. We paid and we got up and went to the bookstore. She found a copy of the book and I bought it for her. We walked to the edge of the river and we sat on a bench.
"Okay Will, please tell me what's going on." She pleaded with me. I knew it was coming. I had hoped she had forgotten about it.
"Sa5m. I lied. About my dad. You know how Charlotte said he was a sideman for anyone who needed him" I asked her. I was really nervous.
"What? Your dad's not a sideman. I pretty much figured you were trying to impress Charlotte." She said with a laugh.
"Yea.. You see, when I was twelve. My dad got drunk one afternoon. He.. Always was drunk. I don't think I remember him being sober. Well, anyways, he took the car keys from my mom. Well, he hit my mom and took the keys pretty much. He abused her a lot. Well, then he started driving. He hit a little boy. He killed him on the spot. My dad got arrested for a DWI. Everyone just… figured that I was such a screw up because my dad killed someone and was locked up for it. So every day for the rest of the time I was in Cincinnati I was called Dewey. I was the kid whose dad killed a kid while he was driving drunk." I explained to her. I couldn't help but tear up by the end. I looked towards her and she was crying. I took her into my arms and just held her for awhile. It seemed like hours later she pulled away. She looked into my eyes and leaned in to kiss me. I looked at her. "Sa5m.. That's not all." I said nervously.
"Tell me, please." She said wiping her eyes.
"Charlotte wants her spot back.
(A/N): I felt like this chapter didn't live up to my standards towards the beginning. I just kinda felt like I should give some insight into Will's mind. Towards the end of it, I felt like it was good. Hopefully you guys still liked it. Read and review please. Thank you guys so much.
