I told her about my dad and how he died when I was little. I usually don't tell a lot of people that. I asked her about her family and she slowed her pace down to wear we were barely walking. Her eyes starting filling up with tears, and she tried hard to push them back, only to let one fall.
"Jess, we don't have to talk about it if you don't want to."
"No. I want to tell you, it's how do I tell you?"
"Start from the beginning."
He wants me to start from the beginning? I have never told anybody about that accident that happened three years ago. Well I guess now would be that time.
"My full name is Jessica Marjorie Spencer. I am fifteen years old. My best friend is Riley.My parents, well i love them dearly. And well, I ..... I..... I....." I trailed off. I have never done this before. All of the emotions are running through my head and I can't think straight. The next thing I know is that Austin is wrapping his arm around my wait and pulling me closer to him. We stopped walked and he sat down on the sand right at the waters edge. He pulled me down with him and put me in his lap. I decided to put my emotions aside and finish telling about myself.
"I used to have a sister. Her name was Lauren. She was five years older than me. She looked just like me, but older. She was my rock. My best friend. My everything." I felt the tears start. Austin pulled me closer to him and all the tears came pouring out. Austin hugged me and I was crying into his shoulder for what seemed like forever. I finally got ahold of my emotions and continued with my story. "She passed away three years ago in a car crash. But the thing is, I was in the car with her. I watched her die Austin. I heard her last goodbye. I held her hand as she took in her last breath." By now the tears are pouring down my face, but I still continue. "The last thing that she told me was never give up on something you love. She made me promise her that. I plan to keep that promise until the day I die Austin." I am still crying, but I feel relieved. Like this huge elephant on my shoulders has been taken off. Austin pulled me closer to him and whispered in my ear, "Jess, I'm so sorry you had to go through that. And I'm glad you told me that. You seem so relieved now. You look...." He paused. I looked like what!? A hot mess probably. My hair is probably going cray cray.
"Jess," he continued, "you look happy."
"I am," and I smiled because I was happy. I felt at peace with myself and the world. This was a new feeling for me. It felt nice.
It became silent. It wasn't one of those awkward silences either, it was one of those silences that you just enjoyed each others company. We sat there on the waters edge watching the sun go down. It was almost 8:30 and we were deciding what to do next. We decided to go downtown and walk around for a little bit.
We got downtown and Austin took my hand as we were walking around. We went into a bunch of stores. Austin even bought me a necklace with fake diamonds shaped into an A. It was beautiful. We almost never let go of each other's hands the entire time we were downtown, and only a few fans actually recognized Austin. I was really enjoying myself until we walked into Macy's. We walked to the clothes and I looked over to see a tall brunette, she looked a lot like...... Oh shit. It was Riley. She can't know I'm here, especially with Austin. Austin and I exchanged looks and we bolted out of the store. I don't think she saw us. I praying she didn't see us. We walked back to Austin's car, when of course, it started to rain. We both starting laughing for no particular reason. We had to cut through a park to get to his car.
"Why are we laughing?" He chuckled out a little laugh. God he was so adorable.
"Umm. I was wondering the exact same thing. Haha." I stifled out a little laugh as well.
The next thing I know is Austin is letting go of my hand and he stopped right in front of me. He put his hands on my waist and pulled me close to him. Our faces were only inches apart. I heard thunder rolling across the skies. I looked up at the sky and felt cool rain drops hitting my face. I looked back at Austin and we locked eyes for what seemed like forever. He started to lean into a kiss. Do I want to kiss him? Of course I do, but I barely even know him. But hey, I'm willing to kiss Austin Mahone anytime.
