One Night Could Change Everything (Teen Love Story)
So here it is, my new story :) It's a little slow at first but it does get better, trust me. I've been writing it to be more like an actual book story. There will be drama and slow parts so just go with it, ha. I would really like my readers opinions so please comment and let me know what you think. Enjoy ;)
A girl's choice
I know he would hate to know I thought of him like that, so It's best if I keep that to myself. I was at my dad's house and it was nearly midnight. I had been thinking about the whole 'being in love with two boys' dilemma in bed for a long time. I had finally come to the decision that to be able to choose who I wanted I was going to have to bite the bullet and date them both. I could already see how much effort and energy this was going to take.
But I knew this was the right thing to do. Well...The right thing for 'me'. It's not really fair to Scott and Aaron. But they'll understand that this is for their benefit just as much as mine...Right? "Mkay, and what would that be exactly?" She asked sleepily. "I"m going to date them both." She seemed to make a noise that closely resembled a squeal. "Um 'Lyss?" "Oh my gosh! Chloe! Yes this is such a good idea!" She said, all sleep gone from her voice now.
"I'm guessing you approve?" I muttered sarcastically. "Uh duh! Chloe, do you know how much fun this is going to be?" "Fun? You're kidding right? I'm going to have to date and try to pick my 'favorite'. How can that be fun when I love them both equally?" I demanded. Well, almost equally. I amended silently. "Stop being so dramatic and devastated. Think of the good side of this situation." She said. "There's a good side?" I questioned, rubbing my eyes. I was incredibly tired.
Lola had been screaming at the top of her lungs a little earlier, which is why I'm still awake thinking about my complicated love life. I love staying with my dad but Lola...Ugh. "Of course there's a good side. You get to kiss them both without guilt, go on fun dates, and oh, have two hot guys fight over you. What more could you want?" She explained. She had a point. I sure wouldn't mind kissing Aaron more often, and yes, without the guilt. "Yeah.."
"See, you agree that this is a good idea, right?" "I suppose." I sighed. "Okay. When are you going to tell the guys?" "Tomorrow. I don't want to drag this on any longer." We talked for a few more minutes before hanging up and going to bed. The next morning I went to school feeling jittery and nervous. What was I going to do if Scott didn't want to go along with this? Or...Aaron. Ugh. By the time lunch rolled around I barely had an appetite and the nerves were seriously getting to me.
I had texted Aaron and Scott between classes and asked them to meet me at my usual table. Alyssa was waiting at a different table, watching closely of course. Scott showed up first. "Hey, can I sit down?" he asked, unsure. "Yes, but I feel like I should warn you, I invited Aaron too." I said. "Why?" "Well I-" Just then Aaron walked up as well. His bottom lip a little puffy and his jaw had a few small bruises that looked more like shadows.
He took in Scott's stiff posture at his arrival then just stared down at me, waiting for an explaination. I took a deep breath. Time for the moment of truth. "Thank you both for showing up. I need to talk to you about a uh, something I made up my mind about. Please sit." I gestured to the empty bench across from me. Scott sat down reluctantly. After a minute of hesitation Aaron did too, but as far away from Scott as possible.
I let out a sigh of relief. So far so good. But where to start...? "Are you okay Chloe?" Aaron asked quietly. Like he was trying to block out Scott. Scott glared at him mutely. I nodded. "Oh yeah don't worry. Okay, I know that lately things have been well...Full of tension. And it's my fault, shh please let me continue!" They had both went to say something.
"Hm, after a lot of consideration I've decided that because you are both so amazing, I truely mean that. I'm having such a hard time deciding between you, that um...I want the chance to date you both at the same time." I finished quietly. I kept my eyes on my hands, giving them time to process. "You want us both?" Scott asked. I nodded, eyes still down. "Are you absolutely sure?" he continued.
"Yes, I need time to figure out what I really want, I love you, both of you." I said. Neither of them spoke for quite awhile. I was hoping that they'd both agree... The silence was starting to bug me. "Can one of you please say something already!" I begged. "Chloe, as much as I well, despise this idea because you'll be spending more than enough time with 'him', I do want you to do what makes you comfortable." Scott said.
"What's wrong lamp boy? Afraid she'll realize how big a dope you are and come running and screaming right into my arms?" Aaron mocked him in a tone that was sweeter than honey. Scott's face screwed up in confusion slightly at the 'lamp boy' thing but didn't respond. "Aaron.." I mumbled, a warning. There was no way I could hold Scott back if he went to hit him again. Aaron's gaze flickered to me for a moment before he shrugged. I sighed.
"Listen Chloe, even though I'll never truely understand what you see in this blonde waste of space, I'm willing to go along with what you want." Scott said. I flinched slightly at his remark towards Aaron but I nodded. "Thank you." Aaron's eyes flew open, annoyed. "Oh come on! He's totally playing you, pretending he's okay with this to seem all reasonable and sh_t, It's so obvious that he's not!" Aaron said, throwing a dirty look in Scott's general direction.
"Why don't you just keep your mouth shut. Oh, and don't ever try to act like you have any idea of what I'm thinking." Scott finished, voice darkening. These two were going to continue like this all day if I didn't step in. "It's not like I have to try that hard to think of what might come out of your mouth next, I've seen plenty of shows about apes, you're all pretty predictable." Aaron muttered. "You little-"
"Alright that's enough! God! All I wanted was to talk like mature people and discuss an issue that concerns all of us and yet, you two are acting like, like, like jerks!" I sputtered loudly. "Sorry baby." Scott mumbled and patted my hand. Aaron looked like he wanted to vomit at the term of endearment. I ignored both and took a shaky breath. "So...I've said all I wanted to, are you guys fine with this idea? I mean, I know it sucks, it's unfair, and I'm being selfish, but I don't want to do something I'll regret. You understand right?" I asked, looking into each of their eyes.
Scott gave a small smile. Aaron gave a stiff nod, his face turning into that horrible mask I hated. "Before I say anything else, I think that there should be at least some kind of ground rules. First, no more bashing eachother or physically fighting. Second, If I'm on a date or simply spending time with one of you, the other is not allowed to sabotage or interupt. And third...Well, I don't have a third right now, but I'll let you know if I do. Got it?" I said.
I went to stand but Aaron held up a hand. "Wait just a sec, there is something else." I waited. He glared at his the table while speaking. "While you're dating us, no s_x. That's a deal breaker. I'm not going to waste my time doing this and then come to find out you and...um, him, were uh, 'together', You have to promise that you won't do that with either of us until you make a choice." He mumbled awkwardly.
I realized how hard it had been for him to actually get that out. My chest ached. Scott turned to smirk at him. "What's wrong pal? Afraid she'll have us both in bed and realize that you're terrible and come running and screaming into 'my' arms?" Scott said, repeating the same tone Aaron had used. Aaron paled a bit, but otherwise was kept his eyes down.
"Don't Scott." I muttered, staring down at Aaron. He really felt strongly about this subject and that did nothing to stop the ache. "Whatever fine." Scott shrugged and stood. "Before any of this starts, I...I'd really like it if you could shake hands, like proper gentlemen." I said. I knew this was asking a lot. Scott seemed surprised, Aaron looked utterly repulsed by the idea.
"You know what, I'm game, wouldn't want to be unsportsman-like right?" Scott said and held out his hand. Aaron stared at it like it was a poisonus snake. "Please Aaron...Please?" I mumbled quietly, catching his eye. He stared back for a minute before giving up and shaking Scott's hand. They only touched for barely three seconds and that was it. "There, now I'll, well I guess I'll see you tomorrow then?" I said, unsure.
"Yeah, call you tonight so we can set up a date, kay?" Scott said while leaning forward to press a kiss to my cheek. Aaron made a noise similar to a groan. But I was the only one to hear it. I'm sure he hadn't meant for me to. "Okay, see you!" I said to Scott as he walked off. Aaron was still seated at my table staring off into the crowd of other students. I knew that even though they had both agreed to this crazy idea, neither of them liked it. But like Megan said, It's my life too. I'm allowed to be a little unfair.
(IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! After thinking about it and realizing that I want to continue this story for awhile, I've decided to split it up. I will not be posting chapters in this story any more. I think 50 is enough for this one. This does not mean that I'm ending the story. I'll just be splitting it up and I'll be posting every chapter from here on in a different story thing. It will be the same exact story right where this one left off, just in a different format. It will have the same name (One Night Could Change Everything Teen Love Story) But with a part 2 on the end. It probably won't be up until Friday, so be patient. Nothing is changing I promise! So before we move on from this one please comment. Oh, and I apologize for the suckiness in this part, the next chapter (In the part 2 obviously) will be better.)
