A/N: This is my first fan fic so the characters might be a little OOC. Hopefully you enjoy it!
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the characters, Sarah Dessen does.
As I stare at the beautiful night sky, on my way home from the hospital, I was thinking of Grace Halley Thomas, the way Scarlet was admiring her I knew that everything was going to be alright-well apart from me not being with Macon anymore. Macon. I thought about him a lot; even when I shouldn't have been, but I just couldn't stop.
Then suddenly a car honked out of nowhere and I turned around to see Macon, with no Elizabeth, drive up next to me. He rolled down his window and said: "need a ride?"
"No I can walk." I said starting to walk again.
"Come on Halley it's just a ride, besides its getting really late and I don't want you walking by yourself. Something bad could happen to you and I don't want that." Macon said getting out of the car and following Halley.
"No, I don't need a ride, I can walk thank you very much." I said speeding up my pace along the sidewalk.
Macon, who had finally caught up with Halley, grabbed her arm and spun her around so she was facing him. " Macon, let go of me." My eyes started to burn. Don't cry Halley; don't cry I thought to myself.
"Look Halley, I'm sorry for what I did, I know I shouldn't have left you in that hospital all alone when you need me the most. I just didn't know what to do; I'm sorry, I really am."
"Well sorry doesn't cut it Macon; you left me and now it's too late." Tears started falling down my face but I didn't clean them away, just let them fall freely.
Macon let go of my arm and used it to wipe my tears away." It's never too late" he said gently.
"But it is Macon; so why don't you go home and let me walk home in peace, huh? Why don't you just forget about me? Just forget that there was ever an us." More tears started streaming down my face
"I can't just forget about us Halley, all I ever think about is you and how stupid I was for hurting you. I need you in my life Halley. Do you know why? It's because I love you Halley; it's because I love you."
"How do I know you're not lying to me? Macon, how do I know you're not going to hurt me again?" I said looking at Macon in the eye.
"It's because I never said I love you to anyone but you Halley. I won't hurt you again because I want to be by your side for the rest of my life; I want you to be the mother of my children" Macon said. I could see tears forming in his eyes while I stared at him, I could see love in his eyes and I knew he saw the same thing in mine because he closed the space between us and pressed his lips to mine. There was something in that kiss that wasn't in it before. Love. Love was in that kiss; and I knew right then in this spot that Macon Faulkner was the one for me.
When we finally broke apart for air, Macon smiled and looked me in the eyes and said: "I Love you Halley, so much."
"I love you too Macon, so much." I said smiling back at him
"So how about that ride? It's getting late and you should probably get home before your parents get worried and wonder where you are." Macon said while lacing his fingers with mine.
"Fine. I guess." Halley said giving Macon's hand a little squeeze. He squeezed back.
On the ride to Halley's house they talked about Scarlet and Grace and how they thought that everything was going to be alright. They even talked about how many children they wanted. Macon said he wanted like 20 but then he started laughing really hard because of the face Halley made when he said that, but then he said he was just kidding and that he only wanted 4. Halley said she wanted 3 or 4 maybe more.
When they arrived at Halley's house Macon got out of the car and went around opening Halley's door for her. He walked up to the door and said: "Goodnight Halley, see you tomorrow."
"Goodnight Macon, love you." Halley said
"Love you too, bye." He said back
"Bye." She said while she gave him a kiss goodnight.
She watched as he walked back to his car, waved at her one last time before getting in and starting it. She heard him yell: "Call you tomorrow!" before he disappeared in the night.
Halley walked into her house, locking the door behind her and tip toeing to her room so she wouldn't wake her parents. She changed into a clean pair of t-shirt and shorts and went under the covers of her bed. While she lay there she kept thinking of Macon. My Macon, she thought. She kept thinking of what he said in the car drive to her house:" Everything will be alright Halley, everything will be all right." And so she fell into peaceful sleep thinking that everything will be alright.
What did you think? Should I continue? Was it good, bad?
