"Look, Ryan- It's not that I don't like you. I do. It.. It's just that you sort of have a repuation-"

"Is that what this is about?" He said, cutting me off.

I looked down, and nodded.

Before he could say anything, I said, "I should probably get going," and I left.

I walked away, fighting the urge to turn around and go back to him. 

I opened the door to my apartment. Oh God, why did I do that?! I'm so stupid. He's Ryan fucking Lochte and I just practically blew him off and left him. I'm so bad at making decisions. But Anna was right. He was a player. He knows he can get any girl he wanted. So why me? What does he see in me?

I sighed and Anna walked into the room.

"How was your date with Ryan?" 

"Well for starters, we won't be seeing each other again."

Her eyes got wide.

"What happened?!"

"I took what you said into consideration. He's a player. He's not the right guy for me. So I told him I couldn't do it and left."

"Kylie, I just wanted to warn you! I didn't think you were actually going to stop seeing him!"

"Are you saying I made a mistake by leaving him?"

"Well, do you like him?" 

"Yes." I said, quietly.

"Well if you think it's the right thing to do, then go back to him. Tell him you made a mistake."

Ryan's POV

I walked into my room and sat on my bed. Why couldn't I stop thinking about her? She wants nothing to do with me. I thought about today- how I felt when she walked away. I could've chased after her. She was perfect. And I let her slip through my fingers. 

"What's wrong with you? You're acting all weird today?" Michael asked, walking into the room.

"Girl problems."

"Who? What happened?"

I told him all about Kylie and the events that happened today.

"Look Ryan, I gotta admit this. You do have a reputation."

I glared at him.

"No shit, Michael."

"Well you obviously see the problem. Now fix it."


"If you really want to be with her, then change. Stop going out and partying every night. Show her that you really want to be with her. When you're in a relationship, you gotta make sacrifices."

I sighed. Did I really want to be with Kylie? Was she worth it? Yes, Ryan she was. She was... well, perfect, for me. 

Kylie's POV

I was still debating if I should tell Ryan I made a mistake. But was he willing to change? The fear of rejection came across me. What if he says no? What if he doesn't think I'm worth it?

I was angry at Anna a little. If she never told me that, I wouldn't have to be stressing about everything right now. But I was mostly angry at myself. I should never had said that. But if I didn't, the stress would practically be eating me alive, here. I would've started to overthink things. Hell, I'm overthinking things right now.

The next day, Anna and I went and got lunch. After, she went to see Matt. I walked home and saw a vase of pink peonies, my favorite flowers, in front of my front door. I stared at them. I knew they were from Ryan. I opened the small envelope and read the letter that was attached to the vase.

Do you believe in second chances?

"Do you?" A voice asked behind me. 

[How do you guys like the different POV's? Or should I just stick with Kylie's? Let me know :) ]
