And I remember that fight
As everything was slipping right out of our hands
I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street
Braced myself for the "Goodbye"
'cause that's all I've ever known
Then you took me by surprise
You said, "I'll never leave you alone."
You said, "I remember how we felt sitting by the water
And every time I look at you, it's like the first time
I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter
She is the best thing that's ever been mine."
-Taylor Swift, Mine
Shane and Claire are nineteen. They live in the glass house with Michael and Eve. Claire has completed her time at TPU and is now working full time with Myrin which pays very well.
Only thing was that at the moment they were arguing all the time.
"Get off me Shane!" Claire screamed. He was holding her forearms and begging her to not leave. She wasn't leaving forever, she just needed air after Shane told me he thought i had slept with Myrin.
Shane let go but blocked her from leaving the kitchen.
Claire tried to skirt around him but he tried to wrap her in a hug.
"Do not touch me Shane." Claire stepped back. "Please stay away"
"Claire, I love you" Shane pleaded. "Tell me its not true"
"Shane, if i slept with Myrin why the hell would i come home and then sleep with you?"
"I don't know!" Shane clenched his fists. "Promise its not true"
"Its not!" I was actually hysterical. I was crying and half laughing.
I went to walk out of the room but Shane reached for me again and i fell and hit my head on the door. I clutched my hand to my temple and slid down and sat on the ground.
When i moved my hand i saw blood all over it.
I didn't stop Shane when he got the first aid kit and dapped the blood away. When he was finished he lifted me up and carried me to bed. I cried as he wrapped an arm around me and i cried myself to sleep.
In the morning Shane was gone and i laid in my empty bed. I stood up and pulled on a white summer dress and brushed my hair. I looked in the mirror and saw the gash on my head. I tried to carefully hide it with my waist length blonde hair.
I carried my white and glittery sandals downstairs and stepped in to the kitchen to the smell of brewing coffee.
"I was gonna bring it to you in bed." Shane told me. He stepped forward and we gave each other the longest and tightest hug ever. When we let go it was just so he could move his lips to mine. We pulled apart and i smiled as i made us coffee. We worked around each other and laughed and joked in the way that we fell in love.
We ate breakfast on the sofa, kissing in between bites of toast.
"I love you" he told me as he brushed a strand of hair away from my face.
"I love you too baby" i kissed his cheek softly.
"I have something to tell you" he turned to me and held my hand. "I'm leaving" I stared at him, unable to comprehend his words.
"I got a recording contract baby." He smiled as he said it so i returned a shaky smile. "I'm coming back, i promise"
"When are you leaving?" I asked.
We spent the rest of the day being together just hugging, kissing and spending time with each other. I cried as Shane gave me the biggest kiss ever and a tight hug and he promised that he'd be coming back.
