Chapter 13

Lexie

I almost spit out my drink as I tried to contain my laughter. Katie was finishing up a really funny story that I had to swallow my drink before I busted out laughing.

"I can't believe he did that," I said in between laughs.

"Oh trust me I wish you would've been there for that," she said.

We calmed down for a bit after that as I munched on some onion rings.

"So Lex, you're really are a waitress huh?" Katie asked.

"Yeah," I replied.

"That's good at least you're doing something with your life. Do you ever plan on going back to school?" she asked.

"I hope so but right now I need the money for the bills," I said. "When do you graduate from college?"

"Almost a year from now," she replied.

"Good for you," I said.

"Yeah I just hope to land something when I get out since well you know with the economy and what not," she said.

"I think you'll find something; even if it's an internship or something," I pointed out.

"No you're right, I do want to find something at least," she said. "Moving on, any guys in your life?"

"Well…."

"Oh my god there is! I want to details!" she said excitedly.

"There's not much to tell," I said.

"Who is he?"

I sighed before I gulped my beer down and began to tell her story. "There's this guy, he's a road construction worker. His name is Jason and I swear he likes me," I said.

"What does he look like?" she asked.

"He's tall with dirty blonde hair, nice eyes, attractive smile," I replied.

"So then what's wrong with the guy?" she asked.

"It's not him it's me. I didn't want to know the guy but now since he's around more, I don't know," I said.

Katie pressed her lips before she said anything. "I think you should give him a chance," she said.

I blinked at her twice as her words processed into my head. "Just hear me out," she said, raising her hand. "I know you've been through a lot when you were a kid from what you told me, but you can't keep using your past as an excuse a lot to shut out people. I know you don't want to do that but I'm saying is give this guy a chance you never know he could be the one."

She did have a point. While Jason didn't know what happened to me when I was a kid, it did put some things in perspective when I'm meeting people.

"You're right I mean, I did meet up with my dad and we're taking baby steps to getting back to what our relationship was before well you know..."

"That's good," she said.

"Mmmhmm," I said.

"Oh and one more thing," she said.

"What?"

"I better meet this Jason guy," Katie replied. "I do want to see how he looks."

"Sure," I said, laughing lightly as we clinked our bottles together.

Later that night, I pulled up in front of Jason's house. After that talk with Katie, I decided to see what was going on with Jason. I got out of my car and after making sure it was locked, I walked up towards his door and stood there. I felt nervous all of sudden.

Since when did I felt nervous?

I took in a deep breath and knocked on his door twice. I waited awhile before I heard footsteps coming from the other side and Jason opened up the door.

"Lexie, what are you doing here?" he asked.

"I was in the neighborhood," I said, using his old pickup line. "Unless this is a bad time I can come back another day."

"No! I mean, you can come in I wasn't expecting anyone," he said, letting me in.

I went inside and his house wasn't too bad. I remember Sookie telling me he lived in his parent's house after he moved out of his Gran's house when his parents died when they were young.

"Was I interrupting something?" I asked.

"Nah, you weren't," he replied. "I just didn't expect you to come here."

"Neither did I," I agreed.

"Do you want anything to drink or something?"

I shook my head no as I sat down on the couch. I felt nervous all of a sudden. It's not like we're going to have sex or anything. I hope it doesn't lead to that point.

"So how was your night out with your friend?" he asked since I mentioned it before I left for the night.

"It was good, she had to head back home early though," I replied. "We did catch up and what not though she did put some things in perspective for me."

"Like what?"

I looked at him sideway before I turned to face him. This was it.

"Well, you remembered how you asked me about my dad and my childhood?" I asked.

"Yeah," he replied.

"Well when I was a kid my parents…"

"Jason I tried to get some of the ketchup stain off my clothes from awhile ago and it's not coming out…"

I turned and saw a redhead girl coming out from the hallway. She dressed a little slutty to be honest and looked at us confusingly.

"Who's she?" she asked, in disgust.

"No one," I replied, giving Jason a death glare. "I was just leaving."

I got up from my spot and headed out the door. I was fishing for my keys as I was stomping towards my car when I heard the door slam open and running feet.

"Lexie it's not what it looks…"

"Don't even," I snapped spinning on my heels to face him. "That's the most used line in the book so don't even go there."

"Lex, I had no idea that…"

"You had no idea what? That you had that redhead bimbo with you inside doing god knows what just so that you can get some with her?!" I shrieked.

He didn't say anything else. I should've known that it was going to happen. I just shook my head and unlocked my car door.

"LEx, please…"

"Save it." I said. "If you know what's good for you maybe we shouldn't even see each other for awhile. Wait, what am I saying? We're hardly dating."

"Wait, you want to give us a try?" he asked incredulously.

"I did," I replied as I felt tears coming down my face. I got in the car and looked up at his sad expression before I shook my head and drove back home. I had tears coming down my face and I was surprised that I was able to drive.

I did wanted to give Jason and I a try.

Now I wasn't so sure after tonight.

A/n: Okay so I know it's been awhile and things happened since I last posted and while I wait (im)patiently for my book for school to come in the mail since the homework is due Tuesday XD I figured why not write and here I am.

Next chapter things are going to get tense. Can't tell though, just stick around to find out.

I thank you guys for reviewing and putting this on your alerts. You guys rock no matter what.

Until next time,
Spike
