I have the love of my life. The moment of us confessing our love and making love replayed in my head. But me and Chad came to an understanding that since we are dating, people would probably think that the only reason why we are together was because we slept together. I mean, it was over the weekend and a lot can happen but what Chad and I have is real. We didn't give a damn what anybody said.
So that Monday, I did my usual and got ready for school, but Chad was going to pick me up.
"Bye, see you later!" I said rushing towards the front door.
"Wait, why are you in such hurry?" Mother asked.
"Oh, um…I'm catching a ride with a friend, today. Don't want to keep him...I mean her waiting."
"Ok," Mother gave me a confused look.
I rushed out and hurried into Chad's car.
"Never thought you would be in a hurry to get to school?"
"We need to go."
He drove off without any other question. I sighed once we were away from my house.
"You didn't want your parents to see me?"
"Not yet, after school. I knew that my father would have something to say and I didn't want that to ruin our day."
"It's ok, Tay. Just because your father has something against us being together doesn't mean that would be a reason for us not to have a happy relationship. Just don't let that shit get to you like that."
"Yeah, you're right." I leaned over and kissed his cheek.
Once we pulled into the parking lot, I sighed. I didn't know what to expect when we walked in together. Chad was smiling the whole time. We got out the car and he took my hand.
Normally I would've gone through the gym door but Chad wanted to go through the front so everybody could see us. And of course, he got what he wanted. Everyone was staring, people starting talking.
"Chad is dating Taylor?" one person said.
"Girl got him hooked!"
"Damn! Danforth is hitting that!"
It was so many people talking. I disregarded the rude comments. At the moment, I enjoyed the attention, I mean who wouldn't? I'm dating Chad Danforth and I'm the first girl who has been with him intimately and the first girl he has a serious relationship with.
"You like this don't you?" I asked in a whisper once we got to my locker.
"Yeah, I do. I want everyone to know that you are mine."
I smiled. "And you're mine."
I took the books that I need out.
"I got it," Chad said taking them out of my hand.
I was feeling a bit awkward and wished that Gabriella would come but this would be the day she didn't. Chad walked me to my class and a looked into the classroom and saw Gabriella flirting with Troy.
"Thanks for walking me to class." I embraced Chad and kissed him lightly.
"I will see you later, Tay."
"Ok…and don't be a distraction." I took my books from him.
"I'll try not to," he kissed me one more time before the bell rung.
I went into class and Troy walked out catching up with Chad. So much for Chad not being a distraction, he was all I could think about.
"So you and Chad are dating now?" Gabriella asked as I sat down.
I nodded. "I'll tell you everything later."
Like always, I would listen to a little of what the teacher was saying but at the same do my work and be done with it. I had all my attention on Chad again, who was walking pass. He smiled and continued walking to wherever he was going.
The day was so different. Chad and I had lunch together, he walked me to class, holding my books, kissed me before I went in the classroom, texted me saying "I love you", it was just so much that he was doing and I loved every bit of it.
After school, was the same…just worse. I waited for Chad to get out of basketball practice, leaning against the wall. Gina and a couple of her friends came up to me.
"This little thing you think you have with my man is all fake. You need to leave now before you get embarrassed."
"You know what? You are really pissing me off! Chad is my man and he loves me! He never was nor has been interested in you!" I said.
"You are such a bitch! It's so fucking pathetic!"
"Who are you calling a bitch and pathetic! Like I said before at least I don't have to fuck every guy in the whole damn school to get their attention!" I yelled. I know I did sleep with Chad but that was after he told me how he felt about me, it was worth it, and it meant a lot.
Gina glared at me.
"You think this is over, huh? So you think just because you are fucking with Danforth, I'm just going to let this shit go!" Isaac said. "Hey, baby, I'm sorry. I'll deal with this bitch for you." He said to Gina.
I sighed. I'm getting ganged up on by a hoe and her wanna be pimp! What the hell?
"Taylor, don't act like you can't hear me!"
"Leave me alone!" I said turning around.
"Who are you supposed to be, huh?"
"Leave her alone! What the hell is going on?" Chad called out.
"Danforth, stay out of this!"
"I said leave her alone!" Chad was out raged.
"You are really testing me, Danforth!" Isaac yelled.
"You have no right to take your anger out on her!" Chad said as he shoved Isaac.
"Chad!" I called out.
"Shut up! It's so hot to see two guys fighting over me!" Gina said.
It was my turn to glare at her. "I really don't know what the hell I want to do! I really want to beat the hell out of you until you realize they are not fighting over you!"
Chad knocked Isaac to the ground and was about to punch him.
He realized what he was doing. He was so angry, he could have killed Isaac…well maybe had him out cold for a few days. Chad turned around and looked at me. I shuck my head.
Gina ran over to Isaac. "Look, what you did to my baby! I'm going to take care of you now."
It made me sick listening to Gina. "Let's go," I said to Chad.
"Taylor, I'm sorry," he said. "I got so angry."
"I understand that. Those two are quite the couple and Isaac deserved what he got!"
"They do have a lot of issues, that's why they belong together."
I laughed. "I know…but like you said baby, don't worry about them. It's all about us."
Chad smiled and kissed my cheek. Before we got into his car, Chad kissed me passionately. Holding me close to him, I let out a low moan. We pulled back and got in the car. Everything was as it should be! I was with Chad and no one could tell us otherwise. But we did have one more problem to solve.
"It's going to be okay. Once we talk to your parents and show them how real our relationship is, everything will be perfect," Chad said parking his car in the driveway of my house.
"Ok," I said smiling.
Chad got out the car, went over to the passenger side and opened the door for me. I smiled and kissed his cheek. He leaned over and brushed his lips against mine.
"You are so beautiful," Chad said.
"Chad, stop over exaggerating!"
"I mean it, Tay! I love you so much."
I looked into his eyes and saw how serious he was. "I love you, too."
He kissed me again but this time with more force. His hand around my waist pulled me closer to him as his other hand, tenderly cupped the side of my face. We broke away and Chad wrapped both of his hands around my waist. Rested my head on his shoulder, I sighed ready to get this over with so I can spend time with Chad. My mom was the only one home at the moment so it would be better to talk to her first. I opened the door and we went inside holding hands.
"Hey mom!" I greeted as we walking into kitchen
"How was your day at school?" she said turning around. She smiled at Chad. "Who is this handsome young man?"
"Mom, this is Chad Danforth, my boyfriend. I wanted to come to you first so you can help Dad understand."
"You are very happy with Chad, I see."
"Mrs. Mckessie, I love Taylor and will do all that I can to make sure that she is always happy."
"Well you certainly do have my support. Your father is just going to have to accept that."
Suddenly, we jumped slightly after hearing the front door open and slam shut.
"Stacey! Do you have any idea what..." he paused, seeing me holding Chad's hand was not what he wanted to see. "What is going on here?"
"Dad..." Just as I was about to tell him what he needed to know, he cut me off.
"Is this the one you ran off with?"
"I didn't run off with him! Chad was there for me! I have been through hell all because of you and Isaac! I trust Chad and he wouldn't hurt me," I said.
"Taylor, you're too young to understand. I know more than you would ever know!"
"Too young? You are the one that doesn't know anything! Chad is not like the rest of those guys at school! Why in the hell would you be so quick to defend Isaac?" I asked now getting angry at how laid back my dad is acting or as if he doesn't care.
"Don't you use that tone with me and use that kind of language!"
"Sir, to be honest, I never thought that Taylor would ever give me a chance. I never thought that I would fall for her like I have. We are not going to let anything get in the way of us being together. We love each other and most importantly, we are in love with each other. Your daughter makes me very happy," Chad explained. "I understand that you want the best for her and she has that, being with me."
It was silence and a very awkward silence.
"Ben, I am happy to see that Taylor has someone to love and adore her. That is what we wanted for her."
I was on the verge of crying. It was so sweet for Chad to stand up to my father and for my mother to be on our side. I looked at Chad and kissed him softly. I knew it would shock the hell out of Dad and piss him off even more.
"If you don't mind, I'm going to spend some time with my boyfriend. Whether you accept this relationship or not, we're going to be together and you are just going to have to live with it," I said.
Dad didn't say anything and I didn't expect an answer. Chad and I said goodbye to my mom. Of course, she knew and understood that we need time alone and she let me stay out longer. My father just stood there.
We decided to walk wherever we were going. That way we could have even more time together.
"So Chad, where are you taking me?" I asked.
"I don't know. Wherever you want to go," he said.
"Let me think," I sighed as I kissed him.
"So have you thought of somewhere?" Chad asked as we pulled apart.
"Um...I think so but you will have to wait and see where."
"Oh, so it's a surprise?"
"You can say that," I said with a sly smile.
"Do you think your father will ever accept our relationship?"
"I don't know and I don't care. No one else can give me the love you give me and no one will ever break us apart."
"Remind me never to get you that mad, though!" he said.
I started laughing. "I don't think you will have to worry about that," I said looking at him up and down. Then I smiled at him seductively.
Chad raised an eye brow then smiled. He pulled me by my waist from behind and pulled me against his chest. We were still walking.
"I was wrong about knowing everything about you."
"What do you mean?"
"You are a very bad girl, Taylor Mckessie."
"Chad Danforth, I am a bad girl when I want to be and if it's necessary."
"I love you, Tay...bad girl and all," Chad whispered in my ear, and then kissed the side of my neck.
"I love you, too," I replied.
People say that there is no such thing as real love. Well that didn't come to mind with Chad and me. No one could nor would understand why Chad and I have so much love for each other. No one made me feel as special and as good as Chad did. Chad is my one and only love. I didn't have to look for love because he right there by my side the whole time. I didn't have any doubt. No one, I mean no one could ever take that away for me. That's all I ever wanted and nothing more...
