Chapter 1: The Incident (Part 1)
I smiled at my girlfriend, who was currently sprawled across my bed.
"You have to get up. It's our first day back!"
"So, we can't be late!" I walked over to Jade, my fingers at the ready. If there was one thing that got Jade moving, it was being tickled. I started moving towards her.
"Beckett, don't you dare get any closer."
I smiled devilishly. "What if I do?"
Her eyes widened. I was loving this. "Then… then I'll… I'LL TELL ANDRE ABOUT THE INCIDENT."
I stopped in my tracks. "You wouldn't."
She raised an eyebrow. "Try me."
I sighed. There was no way I was gonna let anyone find out what happened last year.
"Beck, honey! Jade's at the door!"
"OK, I'll be down in a sec!" It was our two month anniversary. I was planning on taking Jade to the beach. It was a really nice night. I'd packed sandwiches, coffee, and chocolate cake. And I'd gotten black roses specially. Tonight was going to be perfect. I walked downstairs, and was met by a beautiful sight.
"Thanks for the ride, mom."
"No problem, honey. Are you sure you don't want me to pick you up?"
I sighed. "Yes mom, I already told you. Beck's dropping me off."
"Well ok then," Elizabeth said uncertainly. "But remember, if you need me..."
"I'll be fine mom! Stop worrying, ok? We're just going to the beach; I'll only be half an hour away."
"I know honey, it's just," tears sprang to Elizabeth's eyes. "My little girl's growing up so fast! I just want you to know how proud I am of you. You've turned into a beautiful, independent woman. Everything I wish I could've been when I was your age. Looking at you just fills me with pride, Jadelyn."
Jadelyn. I'd let that slide this one time. TO be honest, I was taken aback. Mom was never usally yhis forward with her feelings. In fact, a tiny part of me wanted to give her a hug and tell her how much I loved her, and that she was beautiful, inside and out. But, being Jade West, I didn't.
"Thanks mom. That means a lot." I gave her a tiny smile, but she understood. She smiled back at me.
"Well, I'd better be going. I don't want to keep Beck waiting," I said, opening the car door.
"Of course. Have a good time! I love you."
Wow, she really was being forward with her feelings. This time, I gave her a genuine smile. "I love you too." I knew how much that meant to her.
She beamed, then drove off with a wave. I walked over to Beck's front door. I knew he hated using the bathroom in the RV, so I figured he'd be in the main house. I rang the doorbell.
The door opened, only to reveal Mrs Oliver. I smiled at her. She smiled back. She was one of the few Oliver family members I got along with, besides Beck of course. His dad, on the other hand, well, that was another story.
"Hey, Mrs. Oliver. Is Beck ready yet?"
"No, I'm afraid not. You know how he is with his hair," she said, smiling at me knowingly. I chuckled. I should've known to arrive 10 minutes later than Beck told me to. If there was one thing Beck loved as much as he loved me, it was his hair. I'd never met a boy that spent so long getting it perfect.
"Oh, I know," I said, smiling. "It's weird knowing a boy that spends longer in the bathroom than I do."
She laughed, then shouted up the stairs. "Beck, honey! Jade's at the door!
His voice was muffled. "OK, I'll be down in a sec!" I smiled. If I was honest, I loved how he spent so long looking perfect. I wouldn't care if he came down the stairs with bed hair and in sweats. He's perfect to me either way. Not that I'd ever admit that out loud. Mrs. West smiled at me. "That dress is absolutely beautiful, Jade." I looked down at the dress I'd decided to wear in honour of the date. It was a deep purple and strapless. It had little ruffles at the bottom. It wasn't the kind of dress I usually went for, but I thought Beck would love it.
"Thank you," I said, smiling at Mrs. West. "I just hope Beck likes it."
"Oh, I know he will," she said, smiling knowingly. At that point, I heard footsteps coming down the stairs. We both looked up. Beck was walking down the stairs. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a light blue shirt, and his black leather jacket. His hair was perfectly tousled, as always. He looked amazing. How did I get so damn lucky? Shut up, Jade. Stop being a sap.
"Wow." Beck was staring straight at me. I blushed. God, the things this boy did to me. He walked over to me and took my hands. "You look beautiful, as always." I buried my head in his neck, and inhaled his scent. "Thank you," I whispered.
I heard sniffling. We both looked up. Beck's mom was crying.
"I'm sorry guys. It's just, you two are perfect for each other! It makes me so happy to see that Beckett has found the girl of his dreams!"
"Mom.." Beck blushed slightly. I laughed under my breath. He looked adorable when he blushed. He heard me laughing and smiled down at me.
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Look at me, embarrassing myself! You kids run along and have a good time." Mrs Oliver smiled at us.
"See you later mom." Beck and I waved at his mom then we walked out the door.
