Elli's POV Outtake
I looked over at the directions I had printed form one more time. It said that I should take one more right and it would bring me to their house. Only I still had to travel about 10 miles to get there. It had already taken me 35 minutes to get here and I was ready to just be there and relax for a while. I know it seemed silly but I was slightly nervous about being at Camden's cabin with him. I knew that I liked him and he was always a gentleman around me but I had very little experience when it came to guys and this trip was kind of big considering I would be spending time with only his family. That made me really nervous.
Finally I pulled into the driveway marked with Camden's last name and I parked near the side. I was expecting to see a lot of lights on or something but there was only one. But, I did see Camden's car in the driveway so that was reassuring. I walked up the driveway to the front door and knocked. I was carrying my bag with my swimsuit and stuff. It wasn't long before Camden opened the door and grabbed my hand.
"Hey babe." He leaned in and pecked my lips before pulling me into the house.
"Hi," I responded as I smiled at him. He was pulling me towards what I assumed would be the living room.
"Here take a seat. Do you want anything to drink or eat? I know the drive can get a bit long."
"Oh no I'm fine. The drive isn't that long. It takes nearly 4 hours to get to my cabin so this isn't even that big of a deal." As I took in the cabin I realized that I had yet to see anyone else around. "Where are your parents I thought that they were going to be here too?"
He took a seat on the couch next to me and placed a hand on my leg. "Oh about that, my parents got off work late this afternoon and so they said they would be a little late in getting here. But they should be here in a few hours. Which means… we have the whole house to ourselves to do whatever we would like." He scooted closer to me.
"Oh…" For a moment I was confused because I didn't know what he meant and then it dawned on me as he scooted his hand from closer to my knee to closer to my panty-line. "Oh!" I exclaimed and I could feel my face go beet red. I quickly turned away from him to hide my embarrassment.
He laughed and turned my head back towards him. "I was just kidding Elli. Although you are really cute when you blush."
I leaned back on the couch and groaned. "It is so not cute. And I get it from my mom so I can't really help it." I heard him laugh again before I felt his body weight come off of the couch next to me. I looked up to see him moving towards the patio door.
"Why don't you go change into your swim suit and we can go in the hot tub for a little bit."
I breathed a sigh of relief I was still slightly nervous and had no idea what we were going to do. It hadn't really ever been us just hanging out by ourselves without any plans like dinner or a movie or anything else. We literally just had time to kill and that made me nervous. I liked him but I wasn't ready to do anything big.
"Sounds good. Where is the bathroom so that I can change."
"Right around the corner, first door on the left." He pointed down the hall. I got off the couch and followed in the direction he was pointing. I opened the door and closed it behind me. I looked at myself in the mirror and took another deep breath before changing into my suit. I had to laugh as I looked at the suit that Dad had picked. At least I was able to talk him into a tankini. I knew there would be no use trying to get him to agree to a bikini but I didn't think it would be so hard to convince him of not wrapping me from head to toe or in a one piece that zipped all the way up the back of my neck. It was ridiculous. I didn't even know that I had that swim suit. Anyways I convinced him of the light blue tankini I was currently sporting and it at least clasped in the back but was open backed other than the inch think band under my should blades. It was a v neck top with a band under the bust and then loose fabric hanging in the front. Thank god Mom was there as a buffer or there is no way I would have gotten out of the house with even this suit.
I opened the door and went back towards the living room. I noticed that he was on the balcony with the light on. It was dark outside but I could see the steam coming off of the top of the hot tub. I opened the sliding glass door after grabbing my beach towel out of my bag.
"Hey are you ready to hot tub?" He asked as I came through the door. "I'm so in need of this. Football was a bitch."
I laughed. "Yeah I'm ready." He got in the hot tub and then grabbed my hand as I climbed in as well. "Thank you."
"No problem." We both settled into the hot tub on opposite sides of the water.
"God this feels amazing." I stated as I laid my head back behind me and closed my eyes.
"You look beautiful you know that?" I smiled but almost laughed.
"You know how cheesy that is right? I don't feel pretty right now at all. My hair is pulled up behind my head I don't have nearly any makeup on and I am wearing a swimsuit from the eighties. Not exactly hot."
"No, you look beautiful and what is up with your suit. Not that I care, but I haven't seen a suit like that on a girl with your body in a long time."
"My dad wouldn't let me out of the house in anything else. And what do you mean my kind of body?"
He scooted over until he was sitting directly next to me. "You have long hair." He pulled the ponytail holder out of my hair and I felt my hair fall to my shoulders. "You have strong sexy legs." I shivered as his hand ran from my ankle to my thigh. "You have abs and are flexible." I was starting to get a little uncomfortable with his comments and his hands. He brushed a hand under the flap of suit across my stomach and put a palm flat on my abs. "And your lips are super soft." He pulled my face to his and kissed me hard. I was taken off guard but kissed him back. I didn't know how these things were supposed to work. This was my first real relationship and I didn't want to seem weird.
Soon I felt his tongue try to come into my mouth and I didn't know what to do. I panicked and pulled away. "What's wrong?" He asked as he tried to catch his breath.
"Noth…nothing." I was trying to breath as well. "Everything is fine. Can we… can we just slow down a little bit." I was nervous to look at him.
He rubbed his palms over his face and took a deep breath. "Yeah, sure." We sat in silence for a little bit. And I turned to him.
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to ruin the moment."
"No it's cool. Let's just go a little slower. Is that okay?" I nodded my head but I still wasn't sure. It seemed like he was being a lot more pushy than normal. He quickly brought my mouth back to his and I tried to get lost in the feeling, but I couldn't get over the fact that he was pushing me and something didn't feel right. Once he grabbed my hand and moved it downwards I pulled away again. He huffed in frustration.
"What is the problem." He didn't sound nice this time. He sounded mad at me almost like he was at his wits end.
I didn't even know how to respond. I sat in silence for a little bit before deciding to change topics. "Aren't your parents going to be here soon?"
"Is that what you are worried about? Seriously? No one is going to interrupt I promise. My parents aren't even coming."
I recoiled really quickly. "Excuse me?"
"I said my parents aren't coming. They gave me the keys to the house and told me to have fun do whatever I want and what I want to do is you."
I climbed out of the hot tub and wrapped myself up in my towel. "Sorry to burst your bubble Camden but that is not going to happen. I'm not okay with that and the way that you just stated that to me shows that I will never be okay with that with you. You lied to me. I can't believe this. I thought you were different but you're exactly like my brothers warned me about." I was gathering my stuff and throwing it into my bag. I didn't even want to be around him long enough to change back into my clothes to drive home.
I could hear him following after me. "Come on Elli I didn't mean it like that."
I turned around to face him. "Really how did you mean it?" He was silent. "That's what I thought." I started to head for the door as I pulled my keys out of my purse.
"If you leave, you don't get another chance. Girls would kill to be with me."
"I don't want you back. I can't believe I didn't listen to them about you. Everybody warned me."
"Yeah well your brothers are dicks and don't know anything. You and your entire family can go to hell. Seriously nine kids? You're parents are crazy and I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree does it?"
I could feel my eyes starting to tear up but I didn't want him to see anything so I turned around and made a run for my car. Once inside I locked the doors and laid my head against the steering wheel and began to cry. I saw Camden shut the door and I took a deep breath. I grabbed my phone out of my bag and hit speed dial for my mom's cell. It rang once before going to her voicemail. "Hey mom it's me. I'm leaving a little earlier than expected. Something came up and I had to leave so I'll be home in about a half hour. Should be there by 9:00. See you then." I hung up and put the car into drive I couldn't believe that I was going to have to explain this once I got back but I guess it could be worse. I could have done something that I really regretted. I still can't believe he expected that out of me and then he lied to me to get it. He's such a jerk. I shook my head and tried to think of other things so that I could drive home safely. I turned the radio up really loudly and pulled out of the driveway heading for home.
I wiped my eyes as I pulled into my own garage parking space at the house. I tried to gather myself before getting out of the car. I checked myself in the mirror to make sure that I didn't look bad. I was a little puffy but I had lost most of the redness so that was a good sign. I There appeared to be no one here. I sighed in relief at least the inevitable would be postponed for a little while.
"Mason is that you?" Tyler came around the corner from the living room and stopped abruptly. "Oh hey Elli. I didn't think you'd be back till midnight. What, did you push Camden away finally?" He laughed at his own joke but it made me start to cry again. I heard him curse under his breath as I dropped my bag by the door and continued to wipe my eyes. I refused to let him see me cry either. He moved closer to me. "Hey I didn't mean anything by I, I don't want you to cry."
I waved him off. "No I'm fine. And yes I did finally push him away. We're done."
"Do you want to talk about it?" He asked it hesitantly and I heard something in his voice that I hadn't heard before, at least when talking to me. I had heard it plenty of times when he was conversing with my other siblings but never in reference to me. He sounded genuinely concerned. "I mean you don't have to talk to me but maybe it would make you feel better. Trust me I could come in handy if you want to bash on him or whatever it is you girls do in these situations. I'm kind of the only one around right now."
"About that, where is the rest of my family? And how come you are here when no one else is?"
"Well your family is all at the movies. Something was said about Emmett really wanting to see the latest cartoon I don't know." I chuckled. He smiled when I did. "Mason was the only one that didn't go. Him and Paige had plans. Then my sad story is that my mom asked if I could go to Mason's because her and my dad wanted some alone time. And believe me just the thought of that disgusts me so I had no choice but to come here. So I called Mason and he told me that Paige and he were going to get some pizza and then they would come hang here. In fact they should be here soon maybe in the next 15 minutes or so. That's why I thought the door might be him."
"Oh I guess that makes sense. Well it's good Paige is coming over I'm going to need someone to talk to."
I walked with him back into the living room and sat on the couch next to him. "He didn't hurt you did he?" Tyler was wringing his hands together and he looked really anxious.
I sighed and looked over at him. "No he didn't. He lied to me about his parents not being there."
"That's it? Not to sound inconsiderate or anything, and I really hate the guy but that doesn't exactly seem like a deal breaker."
"That was just the beginning. First he lied to me, then he got me in the hot tub, started to feel me up and push me too far so I told him to ice it but he didn't. Then he told me that my family was crazy and so was I."
I looked over at him and Tyler looked really pissed off. "He was trying to sleep with you?" He couldn't even look at me, he looked really mad. I didn't really want to admit it but I slowly nodded my head in agreement. "Asshole! I knew he was going to try to hurt you. Are you sure you're okay?" He grabbed my hands. I looked into his eyes and realized that maybe I had been wrong about him, but I didn't completely want to get ahead of myself.
"I'm fine Ty. I left before anything more could happen. But seriously, I thought he actually liked me. I thought that for once I wasn't going to be forbidden game just because I'm Mason and Aiden Cullen's sister. I thought that maybe someone could see me differently and that maybe I was worth something. But no I'm just a pawn in the ploy to prove that the damn captain of the football team can bang the sister of the captain of the hockey team."
"Hey co-captain." He said it lightly but it made me laugh and I knew that that was his intention.
"Fine co-captain." I looked over at him. He smiled at me. "But seriously Tyler. Is there something wrong with me? I just don't get it, why do all boys have to be such jerks!"
There was a brief silence. "There is nothing wrong with you Elli. You're perfect. Any guy would be lucky to have you. I mean look at you you're beautiful. Even when your eyes are puffy from crying."
I hit him on the arm and he laughed. I stared at him for a moment. "I know you don't actually mean that but thanks for saying it anyways."
"Anytime." He smiled at me again and opened his arms in offer of a hug so I took it. I finally felt safe and comfortable tonight being in my number one enemy's arms. It felt really ironic. "And I did kind of mean it Elli. One day the right guy will come along, and he will treat you right I promise. I will watch his every move to guarantee it."
"Thanks." I whispered before slowly pulling out of his embrace.
"So… do you want to watch some T.V. or something? We have to wait until Mason and Paige get here anyways."
"Sure." I leaned into the corner of the couch and he took the opposite end. He turned on the T.V. and turned it to sports.
"Is sports okay I don't really know what else is on that's pretty much all I watch."
"Yeah it's fine." So pro-football it was. I closed my eyes and quickly fell asleep.
End Elli's POV
It wasn't long after Elli fell asleep that Mason and Paige came in through the front door.
"Hey Ty man are you still here?" Mason called out grabbing Paige's coat from her as she closed the door behind her.
"Yeah I'm here!" Tyler called as he came around the corner from the living room.
"What have you been doing here all by yourself?" Mason asked him.
"Well I was just watching football while I waited for you guys to get done with dinner until your sister came flying through the door about 10 minutes ago crying her eyes out.
Paige's hand flew to her mouth. "Oh what happened? Is she okay? Did something go wrong with her and Camden?"
"Well let's just say that that little duo is no longer." Tyler said putting his hands into his front pockets. "He tried to push her a little too far and she wasn't going for it and then add on the fact that he lied to her and you get a typical high school break up."
"Jeez, it sounds like you actually talked to her Tyler. Not like your usual bickering and banter."
"That's not important right now Mason. Your sister is probably heart broken right now." Paige said turning to Mason with a look of disgust.
"Sorry babe. But I hope she didn't actually give her heart to that dickhead."
"Mason girls view relationships differently than guys do. Even if she wasn't actually in love with him it still hurts to break up. This relationship meant a lot to her Mason. It was the first time that a guy really showed feelings for her and they were together for two months, that's a long time for high school relationships. I'm sure she's still in pain."
"Well whatever you say babe. Where is she anyways Ty?"
"On the couch in the living room."
"You mean she actually sat on the couch next to you too? Am I dreaming? It sounds like you two are getting along and I know that can't be right."
"She was crying man. What was I supposed to do? Even I am not that heartless. I couldn't just let her cry. So yeah I was semi nice to her for a change. Is it really that hard to believe?"
"No I'm just giving you crap because now you must see what I've been saying for ages. It killed you to watch her cry because you like her."
"Don't start that again right now. Boys there are bigger things to be concerned about at the moment. Is she okay Tyler?"
"Yeah she's asleep."
"Good." Paige said as she was going towards the living room. "At least now it can just be over with. Come Monday it will just be a bit of old news."
"I wouldn't be so sure of that." Tyler said as he held his phone in his hand. They all looked at the mass text that was just sent out by Camden. There was a picture of Camden holding up what appeared to be a pair of Elli's underwear. They must have fallen out of her bag when she changed into her swim suit.
Looks like Elli Cullen is nothing more than a whore after all ;)
