That ironic moment when you're trying to avoid someone and you end up bumping into them, literally.copyright protection8PENANAeljeK5A2sA

Yup, I've been avoiding Damon since I got home from the party, which was only last night but whatever. copyright protection8PENANAcMv5O5ZPGo

I needed to get my thoughts straight about him, and the best way to do that is to not see him.copyright protection8PENANA0vBkNK7mHX

But that plan failed when I decided to take a walk and ended up being plowed over by a very shirtless Damon. copyright protection8PENANAEWiYa33L5w

Those abs definitely didn't help me figure things out. And I was so distracted by them that I was actually nice to him. Crazy right? But I came up with a good excuse, so whatever.copyright protection8PENANAmhiSm6XmWE

Now I should really stop thinking about him, I'm just getting more and more confused by the minute. I should be thinking about what I'm going to say to Dylan.copyright protection8PENANALW9nhW7ojP

I'm currently sitting in a booth at an ice cream parlour, waiting for Dylan to show up so we could talk about what happened last night.copyright protection8PENANAlYLDWWHZHM

"Fia, you came." I heard from directly beside me. copyright protection8PENANAw44OWrVUNR

So Dylan did decide to show up. I briefly thought that he wouldn't come because he was embarrassed or something.copyright protection8PENANAyzNHW4E3tX

"Of course I came, I'm the one who asked you to come." I pointed out, this guy really isn't the brightest sometimes.copyright protection8PENANATOVEsRA9Ri

"Right, so anyway what did you want to talk about?"copyright protection8PENANAWnm0bjr7df

Seriously? Was he really that stupid? He forced himself on me last night and he doesn't know why I want to talk to him? copyright protection8PENANAYMOMuKR8Ok

My blood boiled as my anger rose, but I pushed it away. copyright protection8PENANA5H81lBSWKJ

I will not get mad, I will not get mad. copyright protection8PENANAeG7BHjU8q8

I took a deep breath before replying "I wanted to talk to you about what happened at the party." copyright protection8PENANAnpVbcpV3xJ

It was like a lightbulb flashed on above Dylan's head as realization took over his features.copyright protection8PENANAoDqxEM8wIT

"Look, I'm really sorry about that, I wasn't thinking and I was drunk." He quickly blurted out, reaching out to grab my hand. copyright protection8PENANAgXAoyhHtp8

"I know, and I accept your apology. I just want to make it clear to you that I'm not going to rush into things, and this isn't going to work if you're not willing to wait." I explained.copyright protection8PENANACNyxYKWUNt

I thought about this, and decided to forgive him because people do stupid things all the time while intoxicated. I just had to make it clear to him that I wasn't going to sleep with him any time soon. copyright protection8PENANAEc65JKRRhA

"I totally understand that, and I'll wait as long as you want me to." He told me, squeezing my hand reassuringly.copyright protection8PENANAKyxkX5BEz1

"Good." Was my response. copyright protection8PENANANbOlIN5EIT

I'm glad that he understands. If he had said that he wasn't willing to wait I would have broken up with him right then and there. I don't want to lose Dylan, he's always meant so much to me, but I can't be with someone that doesn't respect my wishes.copyright protection8PENANA7m5esOZkGh

"Now that that's over with, do you want to go out with me tomorrow night?" He asked, changing the subject.copyright protection8PENANAUqQsLNymr7

"Yeah, I'd like that." I agreed, a smile forming on my face.copyright protection8PENANAoficA00GFI

"Cool." He said, looking around awkwardly for some reason. copyright protection8PENANAAN5F2xu1Sa

Only now did I notice that we never ordered anything. copyright protection8PENANAjMB9emWMJo

"Well I should get going, I need to do some homework." I muttered awkwardly, breaking the silence.copyright protection8PENANAT7DckedlUT

He nodded and stood up at the same time as me. copyright protection8PENANA4uG9aIHEKz

Once we were out of the parlour I immediately went to my car and drove away without so much as a goodbye. copyright protection8PENANAP3mrdAN9nx

I had a feeling things would be weird between us from now on. copyright protection8PENANAxhFbuZpHkj

"Sophia, there's someone at the door for you!" Mom called from downstairs.copyright protection8PENANAPtOcU1NHaa

I just came back from the ice cream parlour I met Dylan at and I already have to deal with more people? Great. copyright protection8PENANAfIsUUWTjEe

I dragged my lazy butt downstairs and to the front door. copyright protection8PENANADgDsxcqxs4

"Sophia Mackenzie at your service." I mumbled sarcastically to whomever was at the door. copyright protection8PENANAiix7vr8i9j

"That's a surprise, you being at my service? Sounds fun." A voice I definitely didn't expect at my front door said just as sarcastically as I had. copyright protection8PENANAto2WiWTcgy

My eyes instantly snapped up to him. Damon Blake. copyright protection8PENANArUO4mlhNTK

"What are you doing here?" I asked, not in a rude way but more in a shocked and confused manner. copyright protection8PENANARc3ojyQrQZ

"Nice to see you too." He said with an eye roll, before getting to the point. copyright protection8PENANALknNgGK9S0

"I came to see if you wanted to do some video recording for our tree project." He explained.copyright protection8PENANAHjUvohRF4K

Well that makes sense. copyright protection8PENANApWXtkg1bHS

"Um, sure I guess, Antonio is in my room so follow me." I replied, still slightly shocked that he was here, and being nice-ish. copyright protection8PENANAatcygse0C6

I turned on my heals and started on the short journey to my room.copyright protection8PENANA1jqWPOdGti

I paused for a moment at my bedroom door, a thought hitting me. copyright protection8PENANArTeomzFoKm

Damon was about to enter my room. He would be the first straight boy to ever step foot into my fortress, other than my dad of course.copyright protection8PENANAgUPst6VH7x

Who would have thought? copyright protection8PENANAO8Re4H2iow

Taking a deep breath, I walked over to Antonio who was seated beside my window.copyright protection8PENANAAQqOeMnTa7

I was aware of Damon's presence beside me but I still didn't look over at him, feeling weird about how close he was to me.copyright protection8PENANAgr26TwdPek

"Well, lets get started." Damon spoke up, breaking the awkward silence. I seemed to be having a lot of awkward moments today. copyright protection8PENANAn2sfhxWkPk

I nodded in agreement. copyright protection8PENANAQpbgdq3Bke

"So how are we going to do this?" He asked after setting up his amazing camera. I would die to have a camera that good. copyright protection8PENANAJAFMHziUow

"Um, I guess I'll just water him, make sure he's in the sun and talk to him a bit." I stated, shrugging. copyright protection8PENANAfLzH0QfXa4

I had absolutely no idea what Mr. Willis wanted us to video. But he did say that it would be proof that we were actually taking care of our tree so I guess we just had to film ourselves doing exactly that. copyright protection8PENANAi1tthHTljd

Once I was ready Damon pressed the record button and I did my regular routine with Antonio.copyright protection8PENANAz2OfOvO7qc

Put him in the sun, water him, trim off his dead leaves. Then start talking to him.copyright protection8PENANADFYcnY3CWe

"So Antonio, how are you liking the weather?" I asked awkwardly, it was uncomfortable talking to a tree in front of Damon. copyright protection8PENANAGefaHwSASb

I looked over to see him holding in his laughter, his eyes dancing with amusement. copyright protection8PENANANrdBH27v9y

I rolled my eyes and brought my attention back to the task at hand. copyright protection8PENANAIMdGZBF3dB

"So what's your favourite colour?" I asked, looking at the tree with fake interest.copyright protection8PENANAhUPw4w3W7V

I paused for a couple seconds, letting Antonio 'answer'.copyright protection8PENANA8Vnlx4nEAw

"Green? Oh cool, mines gold." I 'replied', it felt like I was having a conversation with myself. copyright protection8PENANAdijqYj2Dnf

"Whats your favourite pass time?" I questioned, this is like I'm playing 21 questions with a wall.copyright protection8PENANAeEa4beAebI

"Oh sunbathing? I should have known that, its pretty obvious." copyright protection8PENANAajDyFaD3Pd

This time when I was done speaking Damon burst out laughing, like roll on the floor, clap like a demented seal, laughing.copyright protection8PENANAA2vTtudv7B

"Shut up!" I exclaimed. copyright protection8PENANALmfVqra1Gm

"Sun bathing, really?" He asked once his laughing was reduced to only chuckles every now and then. copyright protection8PENANAJRFmplx2om

"Well what else does a tree do?" I asked, placing a hand on my hip.copyright protection8PENANAgYoMSSg6no

"Photosynthesis." He stated, completely serious. copyright protection8PENANAH9LX4coed4

I let out an annoyed huff of air, for once he outsmarted me. copyright protection8PENANAAXVgklBRo0

"Well if you think you could do so much better, why don't you talk to Antonio." I snapped, mad that I lost.copyright protection8PENANAdFYCrQvIWS

"Okay." he said with a simple shrug, making his way over to the tree. copyright protection8PENANA7D2SB64Zli

Now it was my turn to watch him make a fool out of himself as I sat back and relaxed. copyright protection8PENANA4Wf0dzlPrK

"Antonio, got a crush on any tree-etts nearby?" was Damon's first question.copyright protection8PENANAPFpNiQENzB

"Oh really? You're right, that cherry blossom outside the window is pretty sexy." Damon agreed with Antonio's silent reply. copyright protection8PENANAGGeIyQODPa

Oh God, could this guy get any more ridiculous?copyright protection8PENANAWU6bUjLg9d

"Do I have a crush on anyone?" Damon suddenly asked, pointing to himself.copyright protection8PENANA0YSqMbhqYQ

He waited a second before he spoke again "I think I'll save this conversation for when you're at my house." copyright protection8PENANA2Fwhn57cJW

"Okay, I think we're done for today." I interjected, turning off the camera. copyright protection8PENANAmFQtRLND1W

This was getting too weird. copyright protection8PENANAR2VJsHVJ8T

Damon looked over at me in fake disappointment. copyright protection8PENANAAay6rWcy8W

"We were having a nice conversation over here." He wined, pouting like a two year old. copyright protection8PENANAvvBmZt7M69

The look on his face was seriously adorable. He looked just like a child when he pouted like that. For once in his life Damon actually looked innocent and cute instead of mean and ugly. copyright protection8PENANAJXcFHFmCov

"Earth to Sophia." Damon called, breaking me out of my thoughts.copyright protection8PENANAwYG5572iGa

"What?" I asked, confused. I knew I was lost in thought but it couldn't have been for more than a few seconds. copyright protection8PENANAecGPyFjGsq

"You've been staring at me like a creep for the past ten minuets." Damon exaggerated, a thoughtful expression on his face. copyright protection8PENANAQco2R6HeJ6

I scoffed "Yeah right, like I would ever look at you for that long." copyright protection8PENANAKf5qlbyntf

"Whatever helps you sleep at night." Damon said dismissively. copyright protection8PENANAyHrfx0VQGo

I rolled my eyes in annoyance and crossed my arms over my chest. copyright protection8PENANAgxAFAsLiHu

"I wasn't looking at you." I stated stubbornly. I don't know why I didn't just drop it, but I felt like I had to convince him that I wasn't staring.copyright protection8PENANAorKuS5Fqt8

Or maybe I had to convince myself.copyright protection8PENANAG1Q7gn7beO

"Whatever Sophia." He replied, waving his hand trying to dismiss this conversation again.copyright protection8PENANAzvlaaVDVek

Not gonna happen. copyright protection8PENANAqCMa7EfM5I

"You're so full of yourself! You think every girl wants you and that you can have any girl. Well news flash, that doesn't happen in the real world, you can't always have what you want and every girl doesn't like you, especially not me!" I snapped. copyright protection8PENANAVLKLT191dn

He looked at me in shock for a second before his expression turned into a cocky one, a smirk forming on his lips and his eyes narrowing.copyright protection8PENANAQNTbX47BZl

"It sounds like someone's in denial. You know the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem." copyright protection8PENANAWqYIA5nQSt

This is why I hate him. copyright protection8PENANAyNejz8kI9x

"My problem is you! I hate you, now get out of my house!" I yelled, this boy was just so frustrating. copyright protection8PENANA60l0cj4jU4

"Gladly." He shot back, then proceeded to stomp out my room and downstairs. copyright protection8PENANAFQuEz4KWUC

The front door slamming shut a few seconds later informed me that he was out of the house.copyright protection8PENANAptqEN0N8JW

I flopped onto my bed angrily, stupid Damon just had to accuse me of staring at him, I was staring off into space, even if my eyes were in his direction, that doesn't mean I was looking at him. He's so stupid! copyright protection8PENANAGPW1Q8kUse

I suddenly thought about how girls in movies scream into their pillows to let out their frustration, so I thought I'd give that a go. copyright protection8PENANAY85tNExxBs

I took a deep breath in, preparing to let out the best scream I could muster up, and stuffed my face into the pillow. copyright protection8PENANAa0WBFJBsSk

Then I screamed.copyright protection8PENANApyamz0vTUY

I screamed, and screamed until I couldn't scream anymore. And damn it felt good. copyright protection8PENANA8T7dmUSUst

Even with a soar throat and hoarse voice, I felt calm and at peace. copyright protection8PENANAnDujea3QCV

I would definitely do that again.copyright protection8PENANAa1tlo3lTWg
