I sit there on the kitchen floor. Connor's still holding me. How much time has passed? An hour? I wipe my tears. I walk int othe living room and Connor follows behind.
"Feeling better?" Troye asks me.
I try to speak, but nothing comes out.
"Aubrey?" Tyler stands up.
I still can't speak. I think about it. I grab a pen and paper and write.
I think this traumatic experience has led me to be mute. It happened in this one book I read Flying Solo. A classmate died and the girl felt as it was her fault. It took six months for her to get her voice back. I cannot wait six fucking months!
I hand them the paper and try to blink away the tears in my eyes.
"But it wasn't your fault," Tyler tells me. I write something else.
I know, but both of my parents are dead.
"Oh," Tyler says reading it. "Maybe you just need to rest. Maybe when you wake up, your voice will be back."
Or we could go to a doctorrr.
Tyler nods. He looks at Troye and nods towards me. Uhm, wot. Troye walks over to me and pokes me. I start laughing a little. He stops.
"Can you speak now?" Connor asks.
"I don't thi-" I sigh in relief. "Close call there."
"Yeah, you got lucky." Tyler laughs.
"Hello. What can I get for you?" The lady at the counter say, winking. Ew.
"One ticket for the 12:30 flight to LA," I ignore her actions.
I told Bayani to chase after her and go to LA. I hope Isac doesn't find her before Bayani does. I need to help Bayani. I'll help Bayani get her back to Seattle, and then go back to Canada.
"One ticket for the 12:30 flight to LA," I say handing the chick money.
After talking for an hour Connor has to leave.
"Where you going?" I ask.
"MTV Movie Awards!"
"No, seriously?" I laugh.
"I'm serious," he tilts his head.
"Holy shit! That's amazing! Have fun," I stop laughing.
"I could bring you if you wanted. As a friend of course," he assures me.
"I couldn't, I have nothing to wear!"
"We'll figure something out, come on!" Connor takes my hand.
We drive to a store and I start looking at dresses. Some of these are really long. Come on I'm 5'3! I find one dress that's high-low and has a collar. Only 30 bucks too.
"This and I'm wearing my converse. Screw it," I tell Connor and he laughs.
I look down for a second to grab my wallet. Of course, Connor's paying. He looks at my face and laughs.
"Cute couple," the lady say. We both laugh.
"Please," he gets the change. "She's my sister."
"Oh, I apologize!"
"It's fine," I assure her. "Connor what time is the event?"
"Mind if I change in back?" I ask the lady. It's 2:30.
"Not at all," she smiles.
I go into the back and change into the dress. I quickly put my hair into a fistail side braid and walk out. Connor takes my wrist and pulls me out the door.
"I could walk without being dragged ya know," I laugh.
"But I told her you were my sister," he leans in.
"Connor," I step back. "You're sweet and cute, but I kinda just got out of a relationship."
"I get it," he smiles. "Sorry."
"It's fine," I smile back.
We drive to a house about ten minutes away from the shop.
"Welcome to my home!" Connor unlocks the door. There's five guys standing there. Four of them in suits. One of them in casual clothes. "Ricky, Kian, Sam, Trevor wearing proper attire. And Jc wearing shit he'd wear on a date with Lia. Oh and there's Lia."
"Nice to meet you," she sticks out her hand.
"You too, I'm Aubrey." I say shaking her hand.
"Pick up a last minute date Con?" Ricky calls out.
"No," I laugh. "He just decided that I could tag along. We're old friends, sorta."
"Oh," Sam walks up to me. "So your free?"
"Nope," I laugh and tap his nose. "Just got out of a relationship."
Connor comes down the steps in a suit and we head out. I am in a car with Connor, Jc, and Lia. I cannot wait to get there!
shorter chapter, but I am crying. Uhm don't worry Connor and Aubrey aren't getting together. Well I can barely see my screen so see you next update. xoxo -Anonymous
