My wet hair dripped down my back as I walked back to my room from the bathroom. It was already 6:30 and I still had to get ready plus drive out to the spot in order to meet Jason. From behind Austin's closed door I heard his video game going off and him cursing every so often.

The video game console used to be in the family room so both of us could play it, but ever since we stopped talking he moved it to his room and shut himself off from me. My stomach soured at the thought of us not being close anymore. I missed my brother. It felt like a piece of me was missing.

I sighed and walked into my room before shutting the door. I readjusted my towel while plugging in my hair dryer and flat iron. While the two things heated up I dried off and slipped on a pair of boy shorts and a matching red bra. I walked back over to my dresser and started blow drying my hair.

When I was almost done my door opened and I saw Austin poke his head in. "Can you kee-" he cut himself off when he saw what I was wearing. "Do you have to be half naked?" He sighed in irritation.

I raised an eyebrow and shut off the dryer when I was done. I spun around and crossed my arms. "I didn't invite you in here. So what did you want?"

"I was asking if you could keep it down but I guess you're done." He said as he watched me straighten my hair. "Where are you going?"

"Out."

Austin looked annoyed at my brief answer and I struggled to hide my grin. "Where to?"

"Why do you care?" I asked as I finished straightening my hair. I spun around and faced him. "After not talking to me for the last few days now you give a shit?"

I didn't wait for him to respond. I pulled on a pair of light pink shorts and a white flowing top that had small roses printed in random spots all over it. "I've been busy." Came the lame excuse.

I scoffed and rolled my eyes while pulling on my white sandals. "Sure, Austin." I replied and quickly sprayed on some perfume before grabbing my phone and purse. "I'll see you later." I pushed past him on my way out.

"Where are you going?" He asked as he followed behind me.

I snatched his car keys off the counter and glared. "None of your business." His shocked look gave me a brief sense of satisfaction and I walked off. "I'll see you later, mom." I waved to her as I walked out of the house. I slammed the door shut and left without looking back.

I rushed into Austin's truck and locked the doors before he could have a chance to come outside and drag me out. I was in no mood to have my outfit ruined. I backed out and drove off towards the field.

On the way there a familiar song began playing on the radio and I felt my eyes sting with tears. I raised the volume and started singing to myself. "I fall in love with you every single day."

Ed Sheeran's soothing voice continued serenading me until I reached the edge of the field and parked the truck. I got out, locked the doors, and started walking down the small trail which eventually led to the small clearing. Memories flooded my head as I looked at all of the colorful wild flowers spread out everywhere.

I spotted the large rock where my bracelet was hidden and sat down. While waiting for Jason I looked through old photos of us to pass the time. I had just gotten to the end of the album when I heard footsteps behind me.

I turned around and saw Jason leaning against a tree. His dark blue eyes glistened in the little bit of sun that was still up and his hair was messy as if he kept running his hand through it. The corner of his mouth lifted into a small grin and I felt my heart flutter.
