Chapter One Part Three
three hours hanging out at the beach, watching Jax and his
friends play some ball, and with what I think is going to be a
serious sunburn; we started back to my house. It was 4:30pm
already, and I wanted to get all cute for dinner tonight. Jax
wanted to see his parents for a little bit before going out, so
after getting home he hopped in his car and headed home. Bzzzz.
Who could possibly be texting me right now, I asked myself. I
took my phone out of my pocket and pressed unlock. It was my best
Alexa: Hey girl, can I
come over for a little bit?
Me: Yea, sure, but Jax and I are going out to dinner at 6:30, so
I'll be getting ready while you're here.
Alexa: Alright. See you in 7!!
I have been friends since 4th grade, when I moved from Myrtle
Beach, South Carolina to Newport Beach, California. Alexa was the
only person who talked to me when I walked in the doors at my new
school. Her and I share everything; secrets, clothes, shoes, and
we even plan on going to the same college once summer break is
Alexa walked into my room as I finished blow drying my hair. She
sat herself down on the chair behind me so I could see her in the
mirror as I did my make-up.
"So, why are you and Jax going out to
dinner tonight?" She asked.
"I don't know. Jax told me that
it's because we haven't been able to go out in a while,
but this morning when we were eating breakfast he told my mom
that he wanted to surprise me with a little more than just him
being home early. Whatever that means." I said as I pulled
on the purple shirt that everyone says 'brings out my
"Well, did you ask him about
"Yea, and that's the thing. He told
me just to trust him with this one."
"Oh. Maybe he's breaking up with
"Really Alexa? Over dinner?"
"So, why did you need to come over so
bad?" I questioned her.
"Well, you remember how Keaton and I
bought a house together right?"
"I don't know if I should tell
"Oh my god Alexa, just tell
"He asked me to marry him!!" She
said showing me her ring. The ring was beautiful. A small, yet
good size, square cut diamond with another smaller stone on
"Oh. Wow. It's... Beautiful.
Congrats." I said.
"Thanks. We're planning on getting
married the end of next month."
"Sure thing. Right before school starts
Alexa and Keaton are just like Jax and I; inseparable. We
normally did double dates with each other , but after she became
closer to Keaton, and I to Jax, we decided it would be better to
get time in alone with our guys. Bzzzz, my phone again. It was
Jax: Hey Babe, I'll
be over in about 15 minutes. Just finishing up shopping with Dad.
See you soon Love <3
Crap. 15 minutes. I don't even know what jeans I want to
wear, and I haven't even finished my make-up yet!
Me: Alright Babe, See you when you get here. I love you XD
Jax: I love you too Dear.
over to my closet and rummage through my jeans. I have it
narrowed down to two pairs quickly.
"Light or dark?" I ask Alexa,
holding up each one.
"Umm.. Why don't you wear your dark
ones with the holes in the knees?"
"Because I don't know where we're
going to dinner at."
"Oh. Then go with the dark
"Thanks biaa!!" I said as I quickly
pulled on the jeans.
I did a quick run though of my hair with my straightener, then
pulled my bangs back into a little poof. Alexa wanted to do my
make-up; with a sigh I let her. When she was done I got up and
walked over to the mirror. Wow, I looked amazing. Alexa said that
she had to go, we hugged then she left. Bzzzz, my phone again.
Once again it was Jax.
I'm right down the street. See you in 2 seconds.
I didn't text him back. The butterflies in my stomach floated
me down the stairs, and to the coat closet under the stairs. I
grabbed my grey zip-up and turned around right as Jax walked in
