AN: Worst. Writers. Block. Ever.
Ahem. Anyway... this is a whole bunch of random one shots on the Berenson family! :D Good old Riley and David...
Riley gets all the luck.
He has the looks. He has the unbearable perfect charm. He gets all the girls. He can talk comfortably with people. He's the cool one and I'm just his stupid nerdy socially awkward twin brother in the background.
"You know David." Riley said as he put his can of beer down on the counter next to him. "One day, we should go on a double date." He turned to me and smirked and perfectly used his beautifully shaped dimples.
I rolled my eyes. "Yeah. And who would go on a date with me?"
"Well... there's April." He smiled sheepishly. He would never let me forget that little crush I had on her. "I can get her to go out with you. I have lots of blackmail on her. Or Kami. Probably Kami."
I sighed. Yesterday had been the school dance. Of which I had went with Kami. And Riley went with Ana. But ditched her for Jade halfway through.
"Like Kami still likes me anyway. Melt probably stole her away right after." I said, fidgetting on my thumbs.
"Please. I think she fell in love with you. I could see it in her eyes." He tapped his eyelid for evesence. He bit his lp awkwardly for a minute.
"Hey. Stop doing that face. Shyness is MINE. You hear my Riley? Mine." I teased.
Riley smiled back, and then looked like he was about to say something, but then there was a knocking at the door. Riley stood up and slowly opened the door.
"Jade?" I asked.
Jade was everything I pictured an angel to be. Beautiful. Elegant. Polite. Dreamy. Innocent. And basically perfect.
She gave me a soft smile that made my heart skip a beat. She stepped in wiith soft and poised steps into the part of our tralior we call a living room. Her steps were so perfect, I had restrain myself by reaching down and tracing her steps with my fingertips.
Jade turned back to me. A streek of sunlight hit her black hair and it swayed off and the light stayed at the top of her head, almost as if she was wearing a halo.
"Riley?" She asked. God, her voice sounded like an angel playing a harp. "We need to talk."
David coughed and instantly went outside. I felt my face and heart fall. Talk? I knew exactly what that meant.
I stepped the slightest bit closer. "Jade. No. Please don't leave me. I love you so much. More than you will ever know."
She flashed me her amazingly perfect smile again. She tilted her head just the slightest to make my heart jump back into place.
"I was gonna say that I love you too Riley." She admitted and gave a toothy grin. Her teeth were so amazing. They were a little crooked in a few, but it made her that much more cuter. And her lips... I swear they were always so beautiful just to make me have a more desire to kiss them.
She taunted me with another smile. "I wrote you a song."
I raised my eyebrows and gave a flirty smile. "Really? Or did you just steal it from April or Ana?"
Jade shrugged and started to shuffle finding something in her bag. "Ana really shouldn't sing outside her window when she knows full well that I'm next door."
I gave a small laugh and handed her my guitar and sat down on the couch. "Well? Go ahead."
She sighed. "Okay. But only until the first chorus. And after I have to ask you something." I nodded at her demands and she took a deep breath and started to sing.
"The way you move is like a full on rainstorm.
And I'm a house of cards.
You're the kinda reckless that should send me running
But I kinda know I won't get far.
And you stood there in front of me
Close enough to touch
Close enough to hope you couldn't see
What I was thinking of.
Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
'Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes baby
As the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me
When your not around
'Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile." She finished and gave me the biggest beaming smile I've ever seen.
My mouth gapped open but I quickly shut it after I realized that it was sorta embarrassing to keep my mouth open. Her singing was beautiful. More perfect than April's or Ana's voice in my opinion. But that may just be my lovesick heart talking.
"That was ashtonishing Jade." I answered truthfully.
She blushed. "So are you ready for my question?"
I stood up and took her hand. "Sure. I'll do anything for you."
She smiled. "Well, you see, my parents are going away for a week, and left me in charge. But... I'm a little scared you know? And was wondering if... you'd like to stay at my house? April and the rest of her messed up family are right next door. So..."
I cupped her face in my hands and kissed her gently on the lips. "Sure Jade. I'll do anything for you. Now go. I'll be by your house later."
She sighed, like she still wanted to kiss me. "Okay. See ya." She answered and quickly left.
Yes. Jade was everything I pictured an angel would be like. Beautiful. Elegant. Polite. Dreamy. Innocent. And basically perfect.
If only I knew that an angel on Earth was a fallen angel that had lost it's wings.
