6) Dinner and a Movie

1.6K 35 49

When Katie finally came up from the pool, we all sat down for dinner. I was sitting between Jo and Carlos with James across from me and Logan to his right and Kendall to his left. Mrs Knight and Katie sat at the ends of the table.

They all talked amongst themselves and I got bored and started staring at James by accident. Well at first it was an accident but then I started checking out James, trying to figure him out. He's handsome I'll admit that but he seems kinda egotistic but maybe that's just because he's trying to show off and get my attention? I don't really know what to think of him but I want to know him.

"So Kayla how do you like LA so far?" Kendall asked me.

I barely heard him I was still very focused on James. "Kayla" James said waving a hand in front of my face.

"Huh what??" I came out of my daze to realize everyone was staring at me.

"I asked how you like LA so far" Kendall repeated.

"Oh yeah it's pretty cool I guess I mean I haven't seen much yet." By now my cheeks were probably as red as a fire truck.

They all went back to their conversations after a minute and James was looking at me.

"What?" I asked him.

"You were staring at me before." He replied.

"Oh yeah sorry about that."

"It's ok, I'm pretty good to look at (;" he said

"Whatever you say pretty boy." I was blushing a little now.

After an awkward 30 minutes for me we all finished dinner. I was about to leave when Jo said they usually watch movies after Friday night dinner and I should stay.

"Oh um I don't want to be a bother for you guys and I should start unpacking a bit more." i told them.

"You can unpack tomorrow come on you should stay." Logan said to me.

"Yeah pleasee." Carlos started begging.

"Alright alright I'll stay. So what movie are we watching?"

"Easy A. I heard it's hilarious!" Carlos said.

I decided to help Mrs. Knight with the rest of the dishes while they got the movie set up. When we finished everyone was sitting on the couch. the order was James, Logan, Kendall, Jo, Carlos, then me since the only open spot was next to Carlos.

*skipping the movie*

After the movie everyone had fallen asleep except Carlos and me but that's mainly because Carlos kept talking to me even though I was really tired.

I yawned causing Carlos to look at me. "are you tired?" he asked me.

"Yeah." I replied.

"I'm sorry I kept you up. Why don't you go to sleep now."

"Well I should probably go back to my apartment to sleep."

"By yourself? Why don't you just stay here?"

"As much fun as that sounds, the couch is already pretty full."

"You can take my bed. I'll just sleep on the couch too." he told me.

"I can't just take your bed." I was feeling guilty that he even offered that.

"Well I mean the bed is king sized. we could probably be able to sleep on different sides. if that would make you feel better about it."

"Okay, then lead the way!" I whisper-shouted. He bent down and I jumped on his back. "onward!" I said as he began to walk to his bedroom.

After going to Carlos' room he gave me some shorts and a tshirt to sleep in. We both crawled into bed and were both facing different walls. To say it was awkward was an understatement.

"Is this as awkward as I think it is?" he asked me.

"Yes! I'm so glad I wasn't the only one feeling that."

"So what should we do?" he asked

"Well I don't see the harm in us sleeping facing each other or even being closer than the edges of the bed." I told him. And we both laughed about us being so awkward.

We turned around and moved closer to each other.

"You know the moonlight is coming in through the window perfectly glowing on your face." He said to me as he ran his hand over my cheek.

I could feel a blush start forming on my cheeks and I'm sure he could feel it since his hand was still on my cheek.


"You're so beautiful." He said it so nonchalantly like it was a normal thing for him to say to me.

"Not really. I'm just plain and average." I've never thought of myself as beautiful. I mean why else would my dad just leave me when I was a child?

"Kayla how can you not see how beautiful and amazing you are. I'm so glad I met you even if it was only this morning."

He said this with such a genuine tone in his voice I couldn't help but turn my face down so he couldn't see me blushing.

"Carlos you're amazing. Well it's getting late we should probably get some sleep."

"Goodnight Kayla sleep well."


I fell asleep with a smile on my face that I'm sure Carlos saw because he then smiled and fell asleep. I feel like I could fall for this boy even if I only just met him.

Team Carlos? or Team Logan? or Team James?
