Chapter 21

Chelsea's POV

Thursday Afternoon

Okay so I know that I don't talk that much, but it's mostly because I don't want you guys in my business but after what happened on Tuesday, I have no choice but to tell my side of the story. There is one person that I always felt this attraction to and no matter how much I tried I could never get him out of my mind. That's right I loved Clay Carlin, I mean how could I not love him, even though he is that predictable, sweet guy, he made me happy. And when he left, I was heartbroken. Maybe it was because he chose to break up with me rather than try the whole long distance thing. But just as my mom told me, the sun will rise after the storm.

And she was right, because after a while I was happy and focused on getting into art school and now I'm going to be studying in Paris, which is incredible. And everything just became so much better when I met Chance. She could be cocky and so full of herself but she understands me, even though we've known each other in such a short amount of time. I couldn't help but feel such a feeling when I'm with her, and that kiss… made me forget about Clay which scared me so much but I didn't want to stop. I was ready to take that risk and see what happens, that was until I saw that look in Clay's face. Like I ran over his heart and I knew that I had to fix things with him. Whether we were together or not I still wanted him to be my friend and I didn't want him to hate me.

So here I am at the Carlin's House, my second home. I smooth out my outfit and knock on the door hoping that Clay would be home. The door swings open and Tonya opens the door and appears to be on the phone.

"Kip, it just isn't working out, I feel like we're going in different directions of our life and… dude are you seriously crying?" Tonya says looking at the phone in disbelief, rolling her eyes. I can hear the distance sobs of Kip and kind of laugh. "Seriously get a grip on yourself man… yes I know that you love me but… just hold on a second." Tonya takes the phone away from her ear and acknowledges that I'm there. "If you're looking for Spencer, she's with Ashley at the recording studio or was it the dance studio? I don't know, I just know that they're at a studio."

"Actually, I was wondering if Clay is here." I say stepping into the Carlin house. Tonya closes the door behind us and tells me to hold on a second.

"Stop crying, I'll text you later but right now I have to go." Tonya ends the call and turns off her phone and turns to me, giving me a questionable look. "So the lovely couple are finally reunited, I just true love does exist."

I give her a disgusted eye roll, trying to feed into her bullshit. Yes I was in love with Clay for a long time but that part of my life is over now and she has no right to say anything about him. "Is he here or not Tonya?" I say ignore her comment from before.

"Upstairs in his room, but if you're gonna fuck at least put the music on. I really don't want to hear Clay's moaning." Tonya says walking into the kitchen and answering her phone, that girl really says what's on her mind no matter how crazy she sounds. I make my way up the familiar steps and head to Clay and Glen's old room. I knock on the door twice but there was no answer, I would have thought that anyone was there until I heard someone singing awfully loud. I open the door to see no one else but Glen singing away while Clay was on the computer with his headphones on.

You drive me crazy

I just can't sleep

I'm so excited, I'm in too deep

Oh crazy, but it feels alright

Baby thinkin' of you keeps me up all night

I try to hold out my laughter as Glen keeps singing but decided to put him out of his misery by tapping him gently. He automatically jumps, screaming like a little girl.

"God Chelsea I know that you're practically family and all but you could learn to knock." Glen says sitting up in his bed.

"I did but you were too busy going crazy for Britney."

Sorry, I couldn't help it. I couldn't pass up on that opportunity, Glen sticks his tongue out at me and I give him the finger making sure that we were even.

"Do you think I could talk to Clay alone? It's kind of personal." I finally say, wanting to get this conversation over with.

"Fine, it's not like I'm not use to it." Glen says as he gets up from his bed. Before he leaves he throws a pillow at Clay making sure that it hits him in the head. He then makes a fast exit, leaving me in the room alone with Clay. Clay turns around about to curse Glen out until he saw me and his face softens up. He takes off his headphone.

"Chelsea…what are you doing here?" He says almost choking on his words. I take a seat on his bed that I remember spending hours laying on when we were together. Still neat as ever, like he was a solider in the army.

"Well, I've tried to call you and wrote you on Facebook but you didn't respond back."

Clay scratches head which lets me know that he is about to tell me a lie.

"Sorry about that… I've been kind of busy, you know with schoolwork and stuff."

"Bullshit Clay. You've been avoiding me like I have some sick disease or something."

"What do you want me to say Chels? That I'm not hurt that I turned you gay."

"What the fuck are you talking about?"

"I came to talk to you, see how you were doing but you have your tongue down some girl's throat."

"It wasn't even like that Clay and you know it!"

Clay rolls his chair closer to his bed; I haven't seen his eyes look this way before. It was like he was hurt and confused all at the same time and I was the one that caused him to feel that way. But he had no right to try and judge the situation without even hearing me out. He then lays his hand on my knee and looks into my eyes.

"I'm sorry; I was way out of line. Who you chose to be with is none of my business and the fact that I said that I turned you gay was an ignorant thing for me to say."

"Yeah it was. First of all, you don't just turn gay. And secondly, you're right; who I'm with is none of your business."

"I know Chels… you know I was coming over just to talk to you… see if you were doing okay, if you still hated me."

"Clay I never hated you. I was angry but I could never hate you. You're my first love and you will always be special to me." I grab the hand that's on my knee, not breaking eye contact with him. " I will always love you Clay but I'm just not in love with you anymore."

"Is it wrong for me to say that part of me wishes that you still were?" He says rubbing the back of his neck. I chuckle at his comment, with confidence knowing that he finally understands where this is going. "That was a selfish thing to say, but I know that you're not that same girl I left behind when I went to college. You deserve to be happy and if it happens to be a hot chick, then who am I to stand in the way." We both smile at each other as we give each other a hug, letting the go of the past and looking into the future.

"I hope you know that no matter what we will always be friends; you're always going to be that one person that I want in my life. Besides Spencer, you're really the only other person that I can fully trust."

"Same here Chels." We break our hug and stand in silence not really sure what to say next. "So does this mean that you're gay or bi?"

That was the toughest question that I hadn't even addressed with myself. I didn't know if I was gay or if I was bi.

"Right now, I'm not into labels. But I do know that I have feelings for someone."

"The girl at the studio?"

I smile at just the mention of her.

"Yeah, her name is Chance and I can't help but feel attracted to her, like the more time I spend with her the more I want to know about her."

"Well, have you told her this?"

That was a good question and sadly, I didn't have the answer for it. Here I was trying to reach out to Clay when I've completely distance myself from Chance who has been nothing but amazing. I kissed her and now she probably thinks I want nothing to do with her. God, I'm such an idiot. I hope I didn't screw this up.

"Don't worry, you didn't screw this up."

"How do you…"

"Chels, we did date for quite a while. I'm bound to know what's going through that pretty little head of yours from time to time."

"So what do I do? I haven't talked to her since that night. She probably never wants to talk to me again."

"Chels calm down. You're a beautiful, talented artist who people just automatically love. I'm sure that if you say exactly what's on your mind that you will be lip locking with her in no time."

Isn't he amazing? I just know that one day he is going to be an amazing boyfriend to some lucky girl. But right now I had to think of a way to get my girl. My girl… I like the way that sounds.

Spencer's POV

Have you ever had that connection with a person where you don't have to say a word? That as soon as you look at them you can't help but smile? If you haven't, I really hope that one day you will be able to experience what I feel. As we lay in Ashley's bed in only our tank tops and underwear (both very cute boy short), we look at each other in silence, admiring each other's presence. Ashley's hand grazes my face lightly as she leans in for a kiss. The kiss is short and soft but makes my whole body tingle; my hand makes its way through her soft brown curly hair.

"I love being with you like this… it's like we're away from everyone and everything and it's just you and me." Ashley says as her fingers touch my lower abdomen. I couldn't help but blush as she bites her bottom lip, and not in that lusting way that she normally does, but in a way that says that she doesn't ever want to lose me. I turn myself into her side hiding my face that was now turning an embarrassing shade of red.

"Spencer what's wrong?" She says, weaving her hands through my hair. I can feel her fingers rubbing my scalp which feels so good. "You are so beautiful." She says in a low husky voice as if it were some big secret that was between us. I look up at her wiping the small tears of my face.

"Ash… I'm fine. It's just that when I was away from you, I felt this distance from you that I hated and now that we're here in this bed…it makes me feel like I'm finally where I need to be. Nothing else matters, not my mom's disapproval or the bullshit that's going on in the outside world. The only thing that matters is us." Ashley smiles and kisses my finger gently causing me to giggle. "I'm so glad that we both decided to take the day off." It's true. Even though we were back together it was difficult to spend time with Ashley. Between her being in the studio all the time and school and dance, I was missing her touch.

"Can we just stay like this forever?" She says with a serious look in her eyes.

"I wish we could, but unfortunately we can't." Ashley looks down with disappointment only making her pout so much more adorable. "But we can take advantage of the time we have now." I move myself closer to Ashley making sure that there was no room between us, my lips connect with hers and they softly move in unison. Ashley shifts her body position, making sure that she was lying on her side but hovering me at the same time. Her right hand is currently stroking the side of my hairline and her left hand is rubbing my side under my shirt. As the kiss deepens and I feel Ashley's tongue massage mine, my hand rubs under her shirt, the touch of her bare back feels like silk, I had never felt anything so soft.

I feel Ashley's hand inch its way up to my bare chest, her thumb comes in contact with my erect nipple, making it very sensitive. My excitement gets the best of me and I small moan escapes from my lips. Ashley takes note of this and continuous to repeat the same action over and over again, changing her attention from one nipple to the other. My breathing gets heavier and even though my eyes are closed, I can feel Ashley staring at me. My fingers scratch her back lightly, causing a sexy growl from Ashley. As she helps me sit up, I feel her hands grabbed the bottom of my shirt, moving it off my body. My arms take on a mind of their own and rise above my head, the shirt then is disrobed from my body and lay back down, not able to breathe.

Ashley positions herself on top of me but doesn't place all of her wait on me. Her fingers roam by body causing me to shiver, I prayed that Ashley didn't notice how nervous I was, thinking that if she knew that she would stop and that was the last thing I wanted her to do. I rub her toned abs that I admire and want at the same time. Every trace that I made only caused Ashley to lick her luscious lips. Her head lowers down and I feel her tongue trace the areola of my breast before giving her full attention on my nipple. For every pleasurable sound I made, her actions became more current and faster, switching her attention from breast to breast. My center was soon becoming a pool of wetness; I had never been this way before and was a bit surprised when Ashley began to rub my center from the other part of my underwear. The warmth of her hand made me gasp; Ashley looked into my eyes looking for assurance to continue. I gave her a head nod in return, as soon as Ashley received the okay she made small circular motions that pressed against my core, I bite my lip to hold back the sounds of pleasure leaving me only to grab Ashley's hair. By the tone in her moan, I'm guessing that this was a good thing because her hand made its way into my underwear. I could feel my heart beating faster and faster by the second but I didn't want her to stop, Ashley took notice of the wet pool that had now become an ocean. Her nose crinkles as she smiles; I felt her thumb rub my clit in the little slow circles at first. I could feel myself shaking uncontrollably but that feeling was conquered by the pure excitement of Ashley's touch.

"Ash…" were the only words that escaped from my lips. I honestly couldn't think of anything else to say as her motions became faster and faster. I let out a series of moan but the soon came to a halt when I felt her fingers enter me. At first they didn't move, adjusting inside of me. Oh god, here comes that shaking feeling again, I look at Ash who was looking at me with not lust but love and I knew that at that moment, that I didn't want this to stop. I bite my bottom lip, as her fingers slowly began to move inside me, I was unsure at first. I didn't know what to do or what to say, but as her pace picked up, that all went out the window. I couldn't help but moan in ecstasy as she thrust her finger, I moved underneath her following the pace that she was setting, my fingers scratched her back harder and I even had bitten her neck. This only thrived her more as her thumb was focused on my clit but still fingering me at the same time. After a few more thrusts, my pleasure dome came crashing down and my back arched from the bed and my body tingled with so many great sensations. When I opened my eyes, I was happy to see my Ashley still there kissing every inch of my face. I waited until Ashley was next to me, holding me in her arms (and for my breathing to become regular again), to finally speak.

"Ash, can I tell you something?"

"Of course you can baby." Ashley said as she moves the strains of hair off of my forehead.

"What just happened….when we…we…"

"Made love?" She says taking the words right out of my mouth.

"Yeah that…it meant so much to me, like it was the best feeling that I ever felt."

"I feel the same way babe, I never felt so connected with anyone until now."

"I'm glad you said that because I don't want you to be mad when I tell you this."

"Baby I could never be mad at you, just tell me."

"When I said that it was the best feeling I ever had…it's because I never had it happen before…"

"What are you trying to say babe?"

"Today was my first time…" There I finally said it. I know I should have said something sooner but everything was happening so fast and it just felt so right and I knew that I didn't want anyone but Ashley to cherish that moment with. Ashley lays there not saying anything, this made me worried that last thing I wanted to do was make her go away.

"Baby, are you okay?" I say rubbing her cheek. Soon I was brought in for a long endearing kiss that caused me to smile.

"Thank you."

"For what hun?"

"For trusting me enough with your mind, body and soul. For sharing your precious gift with me, and lastly, for just being you." Ashley kisses my forehead and wraps her arms around me. After a couple of minutes of pillow talk, I felt myself drifting off to a wonderland of sleep, and for the first time in a while, I was sleeping peacefully.

Chance's POV

Bet you thought that you would never hear from me again huh? Well I didn't plan on coming back; in fact I planned on forgetting everything. The kiss, Chelsea, my feelings, but when I picked up my phone and heard her voice, I was drawn in more. Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea. Normally no girl has ever made me feel this way, like I wanted to scream at her and kiss her until the sun went down. Normally, if a girl would have kissed me and ran after a guy I would forget out, just erase her out of history like she was a dinosaur. But then again, Chelsea wasn't just a girl.

I don't know what to expect when see Chelsea. If she would run into my arms and tell me that she feels the same way I do or if she just wants to go away and never come back in my life. Before I enter her studio, I pop a tic-tac in my mouth, and not because I think I'm going to kiss her, it's just a nervous thing. Whenever I get nervous I pop a tic-tac in my mouth, and it usually calms me down. Unfortunately it isn't working as I pull the door open and see nothing but candle and paintings. They were all different styles of paintings, from abstract to contemporary and they were the same thing. A beautiful dancer that I couldn't help but stare at, it was like it was a series of them and she was moving in motion.

"I couldn't pick only one so I decided that you could pick which one I should turn in since it is you." Chelsea says as she comes from behind a canvas. God she looks do beautiful that it's sickening. A small white flower is places behind her ear, and it complimented her blue and green halter sundress so well. I couldn't but stare in awe that was until I remember how she left after our kiss and never looked back. I harden my facial expression, letting her know that I wasn't impressed by her artwork, even though I secretly was.

"That's why you called me over here? To pick out artwork for your class?" I asked looking at her with seriousness. Chelsea looks down at the ground not even giving me her full attention. Frustrated with what was happen, I scoffed and was heading out the door when I heard her speak again.

"He was my first love Chance. The only guy I ever truly feel in love with and I gave him my all." I turn around deciding that I should listen to what she has to say. After all I did drive all the way out here. "We were together for so long that we just assumed that we would be together forever. But it wasn't until he left me and went to college that I realized that forever wasn't real."

"Well I'm sorry to hear that you lost the love of your life." I know that was pretty harsh but I couldn't help but feel hurt by what she was saying, like that was her excuse for leaving me to feel like she wanted nothing to do with me.

"Just listen please." Chelsea says and motions for me to sit down. I look around and sit on the first stool that I see available. "I never thought that I would ever be attracted to anyone ever again, and then you came along and changed everything. I didn't know if you were gay, straight or bi but I just felt like we had this vibe from each other and at first I didn't want to give into because I was scared. I was scared of getting hurt and scared because I was having feelings for you." I never thought that she even noticed me that night at the club and it gave me this great feeling that what I was thinking wasn't just a fantasy in my head but something real. "And then we kissed, that kiss was honestly the best kiss I ever had and it took away everything I was feeling, the insecurities and past hurt. When I went after Clay, you have to believe that I would never hurt you purposely, I just had to talk to him." Great now she's back on this stupid ex-boyfriend.

"If you're just keeping me here to talk about your amazing ex-boyfriend then I'm not gonna stick around to hear that crap."

"No! It's not that at all." Chelsea stands in front of me, making level eye contact with me. "I only went after him to tell him that anything we ever had was gone and for him to understand how I felt."

"And how do you feel Chelsea."

"I feel like no matter how much I fight it or try to deny it, you and I have chemistry."

"So what does this mean? Are you gay, bi, curious?"

"Right now, I'm not into labels… but I can tell you that I have feelings for you, strong feelings that I don't want to go away. I like you Chance and I hope that you still like me back." Chelsea takes the flower that was behind her ear and gives it to me. Knowing now where I stood with Chelsea, I felt that it was only right to give her a deserving kiss. "So does this mean that we're official?"

"It means whatever you want it to mean."

"Well in that case, you are no longer a single woman Chance."

I can feel myself smiling ear to ear and Chelsea's lips against my cheek is the cutest thing ever.

"So are you gonna help me choose a painting now?" Chelsea ask pointing to all the canvas.

"Honestly, I can't pick. I look pretty hot in all of them."

"God, you are so cocky."

"But you like it."

"Yeah I do."

Chelsea lips come in contact with mine and I follow suit as I wrap my arms around my girl. My girl… I like the sound of that.

Ashley's POV

You probably think I'm crazy for not lying in bed neck to my beautiful naked blonde goddess girlfriend, but what we just shared really gave me inspiration to write another song. Plus, I couldn't bring myself to wake her up; she's practically a baby when she sleeps. She looked so peaceful and happy I didn't want to ruin whatever dream it was that she was having. As I gave my chorus a small run through, I can see Spencer shifting in the bed. I write down my last verse, making sure that what I was saying didn't sound completely cheesy. When I look up, I see my goddess waking up, the moonlight hitting her face, made those beautiful blue eyes sparkle so brightly, even though she was just waking up. As the sheets covered her body, I couldn't help but think of how my sheets never looked so good.

"Hey there sleepy head, did you dream about me?"

"Of course I did, but it would have been better if you were in bed next to me."

"I know, and I feel bad but I just got some inspiration after… well you know."

"Us making love inspire you. Man, I must be good." Spencer says, I think my cockiness is rubbing off on her, and it is pretty damn sexy. "So do you mind sharing our love making song?"

"I don't know Spence, it's not really ready."

"Please, for me?" Spencer says in her cutest baby voice, giving me that puppy god head tilt that gets me to say yes to anything. I pick back up my guitar and take a deep breath, hoping that she will love what she inspired.

What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

I look up at Spencer who is blushing uncontrollably, and it lets me know that I'm doing something right.

One of the things that I want to say just aren't coming out right
I'm tripping on words
You've got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

There's something about you now
I can't quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

'Cause it's you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you
and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

What day is it?
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive

I strum the last chord, not wanting the song to end. I am then greeted with a lingering kiss from my angel. God she tastes amazing, sort of like she has her own taste that can't be replicated.

"So is it too cheesy?" I say nervously.

"More like too perfect." Spencer takes the guitar away from me and sits down on my lap. As she kisses me, I can't but feel my breathing getting shorter, which isn't a bad thing, it just feels like every kiss that she gives me takes my breath away. "What time is it?" She finally asks looking around for a clock.

"Almost ten I think. Why?"

"Crap, my mom is gonna kill me. I better get going."

"Call me when you get home?"

"You know I can't sleep without our nightly phone calls." Spencer says before giving me one last kiss. "I love you Ashley Davis."

"I love you too Spencer Carlin."

"I love you more." She says as she gets up from my lap and heads to the bathroom. I sit back in my chair, smiling to myself and touching my lips that were infected by my Spencer.

"I don't think that's possible Spence."

There you guys go. I kind of wanted to give everyone a break from the drama in this chapter plus I wanted to focus on Spashley too. Sorry if the "love scene" wasn't that great, I'm not good at writing sex scenes. Please read and review because they all make me every happy. I love you guys so much. Love, Peace, and Soul.
