Chapter 19- Hailey 

Colby gently shook me awake the next morning. No one was home, but Colby had to leave for baseball practice. As soon as he left, I made myself breakfast and got ready. Tyler arrived home soon after, reminding me of the Becky situation.  

"Ty?" I asked, following him to his room. 

"Yeah?" He asked, throwing himself on his bed. 

"I have something to tell you." 

"What, did you and Colby do it or something?" He smirked. 

"No! Of course we didn't!" 

"Well you sound serious so what's up?" He patted the spot on his bed beside him. 



"Becky was kissing Colby's brother."  

"You're sure it was her?" He asked, looking hurt. 

"Yeah, they were on his couch and she got up and ran away. She told me not to tell you, but I had to." 

"I don't want you to ever talk to Colby again." 

"What?!" I shot my head up, shocked.  

"I can't trust him with you. He could be just like his brother." 

"Ty no! Colby isn't like Ben!" 

"You don't know that."  

"Yes I do! He tells me everything. Ben is a player, Colby isn't!" 

"Hailey, please just stay away from him." 

"I hate you." I yelled, running to my room, tears spilling out of my eyes. 

As I slammed the door I saw Colby in his room. I pulled my curtains closed and threw myself on my bed. Right when I meet someone, Ty has to stop me. What about the Bash tomorrow? As much as I wanted to ignore what Ty had said, I couldn't. He'd always given me good advice and was always right. As I walked back to my room I heard Ty yelling. He probably called Becky to break up with her. I looked out my window at Colby's room. He waved, smirking. All I could to was walk away. 

Colby texted me within one minute. 

What's wrong? 

I ignored him. I felt terrible for it. He didn't even do anything wrong. When my mom called me down for dinner I lied, saying I wasn't hungry. When Ty tried to talk to me I refused to open my locked door. Colby texted me ten times that night. There was nothing I wanted to do more than reply, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I couldn't sleep that night. I didn't even want to go to the Bash anymore, there was no point. As I was laying in my bed, I heard noises. Something kept hitting my window. I looked out to see Colby sitting in the tree, looking tired and sad. Something in me let him in my room. Something let him hug me. I told him everything. He understood. Thank God for that. 

"You know what Hailey?" He smirked, placing my hair behind my ear. 

"What?" I asked, smiling through my tears. 

"We're going to the Bash together whether Ty likes it or not. I'm going to make sure he knows that I'm nothing like Ben." 

"I don't know if that's a good idea Colby." 

"I don't care! I need you Hailey. I can't let anything get in the way of that." 

"Are you sure?" 

"Yes. I'm positive." 

I nodded, burying myself into his warm chest.
