"You promised!" Marti heard Deidre shout, as she headed out of the Cheertown buildings with bicycle in her two hands. Tears slid down her cheeks as she stopped where she was, and climbed on her bike, but stopped short as she began to ride, because she heard Lewis calling after her.
"Marti, wait!" He called out, catching up to her, just as she stopped her bike from moving any further.
Marti threw her bike down on the grass of the pathway to get into the school, and she sat down on the bench, running her hands through her hair. A rack of sobs escaped her mouth and Lewis stayed silent, obviously feeling bad for the ex girlfriend that stood in front of him. Slowly, he sat down next to her on the bench, and scooted closer to her, wanting to give her the sence of belonging as he opened his arms.
Marti took the oppurtunity and immidently cuddled herself into Lewis's open embrace. She laid her head down on his shoulder and stayed silent as his arms wrapped around her waist and he allowed her to calm down from what she had just gone through inside with Deidre. He heard her breathing slow down and finally calm itself before he put his finger on her chin, causing her to look at him.
"...What happened?" He whispered.
"...I just...I'm so pissed off at Deidre, she told me my father was dead, and she played along with it, so i'd believe her. Earlier, in the dorm, her phone was ringing, so I answered it..." Marti said, as her voice cracked.
"It was your dad?" Lewis asked.
"Yeah, it was. She knew I had been looking for him, and she's still in contact with him. That's not fair, she made me believe he was dead. Her, and Wanda both."
"Do you think Wanda really knew he was still alive?"
"I...I don't know, but it doesn't matter. I should have known, and Deidre should have said something. I've been looking everywhere for something that led me to my father, and he's still alive." Marti said, letting a second round of tears fill up in her eyes.
"...Marti, don't cry..." He said, running his hand through her hair. Though they had been exes for quite some time, Lewis couldn't stand to see any girl he had been in some type of contact with, cry. It was just a nerve that hit him, and he never knew why.
Marti just looked at Lewis and shook her head, letting her tears slide down her cheeks. She opened her mouth to say something, but couldn't, as her mouth closed again. She bit down on her bottom lip as tears continued to cascade down her cheeks.
She was so distrought over this, and wasn't sure how she'd ever be able to forgive Deidre. She was just starting to really like her and understand what she had been through growing up, and Deidre knew that Marti really wanted some piece of good information about her father. Finding out that Rex was still alive made Marti happier, more than ever, but she really knew she deserved the right to know that he was still alive, even if Deidre had a valid reason to keep it away from her.
Lewis picked up his hand and let his thumb slide across Marti's cheeks, wiping away her cheeks. He looked at his blonde headed ex girlfriend as she gazed back at him, and a small smile appeared across his lips.
Marti felt safe back where she was right now with Lewis. She hadn't felt like that in a long time, and he was still her flyer, she was always going to have a good relationship with him, if it was within the squad or not. She felt his smile lighting up the darkness that surrounded them from the night, and she looked at his eyes for a few seconds. Her breathing slightly heavied as she leaned in a little, only to be met by his lips, because he was leaning in as well.
The pair's lips crashed together, and they shared a kiss for the first time in quite a few months. Marti's arms wrapped reluctantly around Lewis's neck as his hands rested on his back and played with the falling strands of her hair. The kiss deepend, and Marti's hands unlocked from his neck, now resting on both of his cheeks.
Lewis was the first to break from the kiss as he returned his gaze back on Marti. He knew she felt the same feelings he did because she had the same look on her face as he did. Staying silent, so they could both take in the moment, Lewis waited to speak.
"...Come back with me," He whispered.
Those words were all it took for Marti to forget about who she had been dating for the past few weeks. It was obvious that Lewis wasn't concerned about Alice, so she wasn't going to ruin the moment they were sharing at the moment, causing her to nod to the statement he said.
Baby, Baby, please believe me, find it in your heart to reach me, promise not to leave me behind...Take me down but take it easy, make me think but don't decieve me, talk to me by taking your time...
'Cause you keep me comin' back for more
And, I feel a little better than I did before
If I never see your face again, I don't mind
'cause we got much further than i'd thought we'd get tonight.
