I KISS THE BAD BOY
When I got home, I head for the kitchen to get a bottle of water. My stepmother, Sarah, is at the stove cooking dinner. She turn around when I enter.
“Hi.” She greeted me.
“Hello.” I responded. She turn back around and continue cooking dinner.
That was how it was between Sarah and I. We didn’t really say much to each other. I didn’t have anything against her. She was a nice enough lady.
However, ever since my dad married her almost a year ago, she had never said much to me and I’ve never said much to her.
Just greetings and small talk. Sometimes, I wonder, if she hates me, even though she has never done or said anything mean to me before.
I didn’t know my mother. She died when I was just two, so it has always been my dad and I.
A year and a half ago, my dad met Sarah and I have never seen him more happier. She was the first woman that he has dated since Mom died that he truly loves.
I was glad that he was happy and Sarah was the one to make that happen, so I didn’t mind at all.
“Is my dad here as yet?” I ask when I close the fridge.
“No. He’s working late tonight.” Sarah responded.
“Okay.” I was about to leave the kitchen, when Sarah called my name and face me again.
“How was school?” She ask, surprising me. This was the first time she has actually asked me something like this.
“Um…it was okay.” I answered. I was lying through my teeth, because it was far from okay. I had to suffer through two classes with Logan.
It didn’t help that he was still trying to talk to me and I was still hurt by what he did. However, I didn’t want to go through all that with Sarah, so I had no choice but to lie.
“Oh, okay.” She smile a little. “Go and wash up, dinner is almost ready.” She said.
I didn’t feel like eating. I didn’t like the fact that I didn’t have an appetite. I hate Logan for doing this to me. I gave Sarah a small smile back. “I’m sorry, but I don’t feel like eating tonight.”
“Oh, okay then.” Was her reply. I turned away then and went upstairs to my room. When I got up to my room, I took a shower and began with my homework.
An hour later, I finish my homework and was getting ready for bed, when I heard a blast of loud music.
I look through the window at the house next door, even though I didn’t have to look to know who was responsible for the ruckus. It was none other than my next door neighbour, Tyler King.
Tyler goes to my school and he is a major player. He has almost every girl at Preston High falling over their feet for him. He didn’t care for any of them. All that mattered to him was getting laid.
A lot of the girls at school were happy with just one night with him. Some hoped, but they knew they couldn’t ask for more.
The longest he has ever been with a girl was a week. Tyler is like a caged tiger; he couldn’t be tamed.
Tyler spends most of his time getting into trouble and creating havoc at school.
He didn’t care much for rules. He just walks around without a care in the world.
I remembered how annoyed I was last year when he and his parents moved beside us. I didn’t care much for his attitude, so I spend my time trying to avoid him.
We have never spoken to each other before, even though we have a few class together and live next door to each other.
Our rooms were directly across from each other, so I would see him sometimes in his room. Sometimes with a girl, other times, his best friend, Seth Grant was over goofing off and drinking.
Right now he was alone in his room. I shake my head. I guess he decided that tonight was a good night to be a nuisance to the neighbours.
I didn’t want him to see me staring, so I turn away from the window and pull the curtains close. I finish what I was doing, turn off the light and got into bed.
I was walking down the hallway at school the following day, when someone pulled on my hand to stop me.
My back was turn to the lockers and the culprit stood in front of me blocking me from escaping. When I saw who it was I felt my rage building.
I looked up getting annoyed. “Get out of my way.” I ground out.
Logan shake his head as he look down at me.
He was at least five inches taller than me and I hated that he was towering over me right now. “Not until you talk to me.”
I glared up at him. “I’ve got nothing to say to you. Now, get out of my way.” I demanded again.
Ignoring my request, Logan’s expression softens as he spoke. “What Trisha and I had didn’t mean anything.
I regret being with her in the first place. Babe, you’re the only girl I want. Please believe me.”
I had to suppress the urge to roll my eyes.
I don’t know who he thought he was fooling, but I’m sure if he had regrets he would have stopped somewhere between those three months.
He had hurt me deeply and I’ve lost his trust. There is no way I’m getting back together with him.
“Logan, I can’t. I’m sorry.” I said. Knowing Logan, he won’t take no for an answer.
I wanted him to give it up and leave me alone, so I added without thinking. “I’m already seeing someone else.”
His expression changed instantly. His blue eyes turned a shade darker and his shoulders grew tense. “Who?”
I have no idea who to say because it was made up, so I remain silent. Thankfully, the bell for first period sounded throughout the hall. I sigh inwardly.
Saved by the bell!!
“I can’t deal with this right now. I have to get to class.” I side-step him and walk away from him. Luckily, he didn’t stop me, so I took quick steps to class.
The school day ended and I was leaving my last class. Tori had told me that she had to leave school right after class, because she had to go grocery shopping for her mom.
While I was walking down the corridor, I felt a pair of eyes on me. I look up and saw Logan at his locker watching me. The corridor was almost empty, so it wasn’t hard to spot him.
When will this stop? When will he accept the fact that I don’t want to talk to him? I turn my eyes from him as I spot a movement through the corner of my eyes. I look towards the person and saw that it was Tyler at his locker.
Right then and there an idea pop into my head. I don’t know where that idea came from, but I guess I wasn’t thinking straight.
With Logan’s eyes still on me, I continue walking, then turn in the direction of Tyler’s locker.
Tyler just close his locker when I finally reach up to him. Before he could speak, move or think, I wrap my arms around his neck and pull his head towards mine and kiss him.
Tyler let out a surprise breath, before – as I expected – start kissing me back. I felt him smirk into the kiss and I knew he was enjoying this.
I wanted to pull away, but I didn’t. I had to do this.
So I swallowed my pride and my dignity and continue to kiss the one person I didn’t expect to kiss.
Tyler put his hands on my waist and pull me closer to him. I could feel his entire body press up against mine.
Thinking it was now time to end this, I broke the kiss and pull away from him, creating a few distance between us. Tyler was looking at me, an arrogant smirk on his lips.
“Well, what do we have here?” Tyler said.
“I know you couldn’t resist me, Sweet Cheeks, but next time give me a warning first. I’ll be happy to oblige anytime.” He winked at me.
I roll my eyes. Boy, was he arrogant! This is why I avoid him like the plague. He was too full of himself. “Please don’t flatter yourself. I’m only here for one reason only.”
“Yes I know. You want me.” He responded smugly.
Before I could respond, I heard a locker door slam loudly. I turn around in that direction to see Logan storming away.
I smiled. Mission accomplished. Tyler followed my line of vision and then chuckle.
“Ahh, I see. Putting on a show for your boyfriend?” He asked.
Now that Logan had left, I step away from Tyler completely and cross my arms. “He is not my boyfriend anymore and yes, I want him to think that I have moved on.”
He lifted his brow in amusement. “So, you used me?” I search his face. He didn’t look offended at all. In fact, he seem to be enjoying himself.
“Yes, because you were here.” I said, then added. “And now I regret it, because you are nothing more than an arrogant jerk.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go. This was a bad idea. I’m sorry, it won’t happen again.”
“It’s okay, I don’t mind. You can use me anytime.” He smirk, “Don’t hesitate to ask.”
I make up my face in disgust. “You’re disgusting! Just forget I kissed you.” I said, before turning away from him completely and walk away. I don’t know why I decided to kiss him.
God! What was I thinking? Now, I know it was a very bad idea. Shaking all thoughts of Tyler from my head, I left the school and head home.
“So, you just walked up to him and kissed him?” Tori asked me at school the following day. We were in our homeroom sitting down and waiting for the bell to ring.
“Yep.” I confirmed. As soon as I got to school, I told Tori about what I did yesterday. To say she was surprise was an understatement.
“Wow, you must really want Logan to get lost.” Tori surmise in a tone of surprise.
Tori and I have been best friends from freshman year, so she knew me well. She knew I would never do something so impulsive without a motive. “So, what did Logan do?”
“He stormed away.” I replied, feeling a small bit of satisfaction.
Tori smile. “Serves him right.
Hopefully, he will stop bothering you now.” I nodded my head in agreement. We were silent for a while, until Tori spoke again. “What was it like kissing a boy like Tyler?”
I look up at her surprise by her question. She saw my look and quickly held up her hands in defense. “I’m just curious.”
“Well, not that I was paying much attention, he was actually a great kisser.” I answer after thinking about it.
“Wow, who would have thought?” I just shrug. Certainly not me, because I’ve never thought about Tyler in that way before. The bell rang shortly after and Mrs. Hilton, came and roll call began.
Today was one of those days that dragged on and when school finally ended, I was glad for the end of the long day. However, I didn’t feel like going home as yet, so I went to a coffee shop that was a few miles away from school.
This is the closest coffee shop to our school, so a lot of students from our school will hang out here. So I wasn’t surprised when I saw a few student here now, especially that today was Friday.
I ordered a cappuccino and a slice of apple pie and took a seat in an empty booth. I don’t know why, but I was craving apple pie. I guess craving sweet was part of the heartbreak process.
I had just finish eating and took out my phone to check my social media, when someone slide into the seat in front of me. I look to see who the person was and scowl. “Are you following me now?”
Tyler chuckled lightly. “Of course not.” I shake my head and went back to my phone, ignoring him.
“You know, I was trying to figure out where I know you from and when I got home yesterday, I figured it out.” He continued. “You’re the girl that lives next door to me.”
I put my phone down on the table and look up at him. “Yes, you’re right, but I’m sorry, there is no award. So why don’t you leave me alone?”
He smile amusingly. “You’re a feisty one, aren’t you?”
I heaved a sigh, getting annoyed. “Is there something that you want, Tyler?” I ask.
“Yes, actually, there is.” I look at him, waiting on him to continue, so he can leave. “I have a proposition for you.”
I snorted. “And why do you think I’ll be interested in anything concerning you?”
“Because we’ll both be gaining from this. Look at it this way, you’ll be helping me and I’ll be helping you.” He answered.
“How can you possibly help me?” I ask, folding my arms on the table.
“By being my girlfriend.” He replied.
My eyes widen at his suggestion. “What?!” I spoke a little too loud, causing a few heads to turn in our direction. He must be crazy if he thought I was going to agree to that.
He laugh at my reaction. “Don’t worry, it won’t be real. We’ll be fake dating.”
“Why?” I ask curiously, speaking in a normal volume again. I mean, what kind of person comes up with an idea like that?
He rest his hands on the table, speaking softly so no one would hear what he was saying.
“Look, if we pretend to date, your ex boyfriend will for sure see that you’ve moved on and finally leave you alone. Isn’t that what you want?”
I was silent for a moment. He was right, I wanted Logan to stop trying to get me back, but that doesn’t mean I was going to do something as insane as dating Tyler King. “Why do you want to help me? What’s in it for you?” I ask.
“My mother is on my case, saying that I should find a steady girlfriend and stop moving from one girl to the next.
So, if I pretend that I’ve got a girlfriend, she would finally stop with her matchmaking and stop pressuring me to get a girlfriend.” He said with that notorious smirk on his lips.
I roll my eyes. Of course it was something like that. He was known for his player ways and he wouldn’t give it up that easily.
Wouldn’t want Mr. Player to stop with his conquest of girls by settling down. “Why did you choose me?” I ask, trying to make sense of all this.
“Because you were the only one I knew that would be gaining something from this scheme.” He answered. “The idea came to me when you kissed me yesterday.”
He seem so sure of this, while I, on the other hand, was unsure. Doing this with Tyler seem like a bad idea. For more reasons than I cared to list out.
Tyler stretch his hands across the table. “So, do we have a deal?”
I look at his outstretch hand and frown. Should I do this? Was it worth it? I know I wouldn’t like this, but I really did want Logan to know that it was over between us.
Even though, it was a bad idea, it was also a great opportunity. Pushing away all caution, I lifted my hands and shook Tyler’s. “Deal.”
A slow smile crease his face and I know that I’ve just made the biggest mistake of my life.
His smile turn into a grin and I know for certain, I was going to regret this.
Boy, was I in for trouble.
