I sit there on the kitchen floor. Cody's still holding me. How much time has passed? An hour? I wipe my tears. I walk int othe living room, and Cody follows behind.
"Feeling better?" Troy 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.
"Just rest for now," Tyler insists.
"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.
I wake up with the guys surrounding me, and Cody is leaving.
"Where you going?" I ask, my voice is back I guess.
"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!" Cody 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 Cody and he laughs.
I look down for a second to grab my wallet. Of course, Cody'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. "Cody 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. Cody 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.
"Cody," 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!" Cody unlocks the door. There's five guys standing there. Four of them in suits. One of them in casual clothes. "Nathen, Andre, Sam, and Trevor wearing proper attire. And then Jason 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, Cody?" Nathen 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."
Cody comes down the steps in a suit and we head out. I am in a car with Cody, Jason, and Lia. I cannot wait to get there!
shorter chapter, but I am crying. Uhm don't worry Cody and Aubrey aren't getting together. Well I can barely see my screen so see you next update. xoxo -Anonymous
