Chapter 35 | The Probability of Love

Start from the beginning

His words broke my heart. I've never seen him this worried about something for a really long time. On top of that, I hated that he thought our relationship was on the line because of college.

"You know I'm not gonna find anyone better than you, Ray. Don't say that."

"You say that now, but what if months from now you decide that you can't handle me being far away from you and it's just over for us?"

I could see the pain in his eyes as each word slipped out of his mouth.

I grabbed his hand in mine and brought them up to my lips. He couldn't even look me in the eyes. I knew exactly how he was feeling. We've been through it all together, the fights, the disagreements, the jealousy, but our love overpowered it all.

"Hey, look at me," I whispered, trying to hold his gaze.

His eyes met mine and I could feel the butterflies in my stomach like it was the first time. "I know, I'm not going to find anyone better, and this isn't the end for us-"

He ripped his eyes away from mine at those words.

"-Baby," I said, trying to get his attention back. "-when I look at you, I see my future. I see it all in your eyes. That's how I know it's you. You're all that I want in this lifetime, nobody else. Okay?"

He nodded his head.

"You know that I'm beyond proud of you, right?" I said, trying to shed light on this conversation.

He smiled softly. "Thanks, tutor girl."

"You haven't called me that in a while," I chuckled.

"Well, football wasn't the only thing that got me into this school. You were a big part of it too, with Trig and everything."


I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Well, you were pretty persistent about having me as your tutor."

He pulled me into a kiss. "That was the best decision I've ever made."

-Day of Graduation-

"Are you almost ready, Jade?" Shane asked, fixing his hair.

It was my final day of being a high schooler. When people say that high school is the best four years of your life, they really aren't lying. I've had tons of amazing memories with even more amazing people and it was all coming to an end.

"Yeah, I just need to find my heels!"

The commencement ceremony started at 5:00, which gave Shane and I an hour and a half to get there.

"Okay, I'm ready!" I said, slipping my nude heels on.

I couldn't believe that we were finally graduating high school. It was like yesterday when I was just getting to know the campus.

"Twins, get down here! I want pictures!" our Mom exclaimed from the living room.

The look on her face was indescribable. She was beyond proud of us and how much we had accomplished throughout these four years. I was graduating as Valedictorian and both Shane and I got full rides to our dream universities.

"Aww, my babies!" she cried, looking at us walk down the stairs.

After a whole lot of pictures, Shane and I were on our way to the ceremony. The car ride there was very emotional. For the first time in our lives, my twin and I were going to be separated.

"I'm really going to miss you, you know," Shane admitted.

"I'm going to miss you too. Promise to call or facetime every day?"

He chuckled and nodded his head. "So, you're going to college with the love of your life. How does it feel?"

Ray got into Riverbank the week after he told me about his scholarship to Coral Coast. I was ecstatic to find out that we were going to college together. I couldn't imagine life without him. After all, we've overcome, I knew there would be some miracle.

"It's everything I've ever wanted."

"I'm happy that you're happy, Jade. I'm sorry that my relationship with him got in the way of you guys."

I shook my head. "Shane, that was a long time ago, you've apologized multiple times. Ray and I climbed that mountain already, and we're loving the other side."

"I'm going to miss your analogies," he laughed.

"Jade!" I heard Ray's voice calling from behind.

I turned around and ran into his arms. "Hey, baby."

"You were phenomenal up there," he complimented, talking about my Valedictorian speech.

"Thank you, my love."

Ray smirked and looked into my eyes. "Now, Jade Clarke, are you ready to spend the next four years with me?"

"Four years?" I exclaimed. "I'm planning to spend the rest of my life with you."

He smiled at my words. "Well, I like the sound of that."

"What was the probability of me falling for you?"

"Love has no restrictions."

"Ray Pierce, did you just answer my math term with another math term?"

He chuckled. "You taught me a thing or two."

I pulled him into a kiss. "I'd say we're one in a billion."

"I'd say you're right."
