|A wish episode 15 by Pizarena: 11:18 am On March 22, 2022|
Its been a month since the whole crushing on Xavier happened, things between Xavier and i have been awkward as hell. Oh shit i just cursed! f√¢k! I cursed again. You know what i’m just gonna shut up now. Anyway, with all the awkward tension between me and Xavier, i still find myself falling for him harder. Whenever he stares at me i’m always flustered but i still get annoyed with the fact that he ignores me, but i dont miss the soft expression he has on his face when he stares at me. Yesterday i heard him and Damon talking about something, apparently they were both engulfed in a heated argument and Damon looked like he wanted to hit Xavier but restrained himself and stormed out of Xavier’s room. Speaking of Damon, last week was his eighteenth birthday and he was over the moon. Me, Ava, Alex and Xavier both planned a surprise for him at home. Ava job was to take Damon to a soccer game since that’s what he loves while me and Alex set the table with snacks and drinks, Xavier baked a three layer chocolate cake. We hanged a banner that says ‘Happy Birthday Damon’
When Damon had arrived home with Ava, he was actually in tears when he saw what we planned for him and he hugged all of us. That day, the evening was filled with our laughs when we watched a comedy movie. Damon ate most of the cake and had an upset tummy.
Alex, well he’s still the quiet guy but we still have some bonding time, i found out that he loves to play the piano and he was pretty shy about it, but still played a melody for me when i begged him to.
Then lastly Ava, she’s a great friend any girl could ever ask for, she’s fun, cheerful and really sassy. I has learnt alot about her over the month. She loves anything that is jeans, hates dresses, heels and skirts. She’s loves playing video games and watching horror movies. When Ava had one time questioned me on why am living with the boys, i just told her that its personal and she understood me perfectly well. It was when i was truly sure that i can trust Ava, i then told her about everything that hapoened to me. Liam’s abuse, the bullying in school, how i met the boys, Richard attempted rape and how the boys saved me and told me to stay with them. I had cried when i was done explaining and Ava pulled me in for a warm and friendly embrace, she didn’t look at me like i was a broken girl, she told me that i was strong and brave i was, that i was a survivor. She’s a best friend any girl could ever ask for.
“Are you even listening to me?” I was snapped back out of my thoughts by Ava’s voice.
“Uh sorry, what were you saying?” I asked Ava and she scowled.
“Have you forgotten? One of the baseball players is throwing a party.”
I stared at her blankly. “So what does that has to do with me?”
“He invited us and also the boys!” She exclaimed, a lopsided grin on her face.
“Yeah, yeah but i’m not going.” I stated bluntly.
Ava smacked my head and i shot her a glare, rubbing where she hit. “Oh dont give me that look Brielle, you’re going to the party and i wont hesitate to drag you there if i have to.”
“Besides i want to see the look on Xavier’s face when he sees you in your party dress.” She wriggled her eyebrows, a small smirk playing at the edge of her lips.”
“Okay.” I groaned. I suddenly remembered something and smirked.
“If we’re going to the party, you and i have to shop for dresses.” Ava smile faded, her face masking to that of disgust.
“No, there’s no way am putting on a dress, i’d rather go with a crop top and leggings.”
“If i’m going to a party, you have to wear a dress.” I stated firmly. Ava shifted uncomfortably on the bed, she seems to be having an inner battle. After a minute she scowled at me and groaned.
“Fine.” Ava mumbled and i grinned, standong up and pulling her on her feet.
“So can you drive?” I asked Ava as we both came out of my room, walking down the hall.
“Uh yeah.” She responded.
“Perfect!” I dragged Ava towards Damon’s room, slamming the door open without knocking. Damon looked up from his phone and smirked when he noticed Ava standing beside me.
“Hey babe.” He greeted Ava.
Ava rolled her eyes. “Damon how many times will i tell you to stop calling me babe?”
Damon grinned and placed his index f!ng£r under his chin, pretending to think. “Hm let’s see, ten times.”
Damon glared at me. “I’m not going to allow you crash my car.”
“I’m not drinving, Ava is.”
“You know how to drive?” Damon asked, smiling at her with admiration.
Ava shrugged. “Yeah, my dad taught me.”
“Well am still not going to let you two drive my car cause i dont want it to get crashed.”
“Oh come on Damon.” Ava walked closer to Damon. “Please.” She pouted.
I didn’t miss the way Damon’s eyes lingered on her lips before looking right back at her face. “If anything happens to my baby girl i will hunt you down.”
“Aww Damon.” I gushed. “Nothing is going to happen to me but thanks for caring.”
“I was talking about my Car not you Brielle.” Damon deapanned.
“Feeling the love Damon.” I huffed and crossed my arms over my chest.
Damon chuckled and grabbed his keys before tossing it to Ava which she caught easily.
“Thanks for the keys, see ya later Damon!” Ava grabbed my hand and dragged me out of the room.
“You better dont crash my car!” Damon yelled back making me and Ava chuckle.
Alex was just coming out of his room when he saw me and Ava walking towards the stairs.
“Where are you two going?”
“To buy dresses for the party.” I replied in a singsong voice.
“Yeah dresses.” Ava scowled.
“Who said that you’re actually going to the party?” Alex asked, glaring at me.
I glared at him. “Of course am going and you dont have a say in it.”
He smirked. “Well let’s see what Xavier has to say about it.”
Ava cracked her knuckles. “Remember Alex, snitches gets stitches.”
“You need to control that friend of yours Brielle.” Alex warned.
“Leave Ava out of this Alex and besides, i dont need Xavier’s permission to go somewhere, C’mon Ava.” I held her hand and walked away. We got to the garage and settled inside Damon’s car.
“Do you really know how to drive?” I asked Ava nevously.
“Of course i do.” Ava responded. “My dad taught me how to drive when i was fifteen.”
“Okay, wait! Wh-” i was cut short when Ava started driving really fast.
“Ava what the fudge? Slow down!” I yelled, she was driving really fast and seems to be enjoying it.
“Nope!” Ten minutes later, i stopped screaming at Ava. She’s really a good driving but this is the first and last time i’m ever letting her drive me. We got down from the car and raced to the mall, panting hard when we were both inside.
“So what dress do you think suits me?” I asked Ava as i rapidly searched through different types of dresses and gowns. Some were too long, too short, and revealing.
“Nah too short.”
“Its too long.”
“Your whole cleavage is out.”
“Shows too much skin.” Those were all the words Ava kept on saying when i tried on different dresses and gowns. A blue halter neck pear dress caught my eyes and i picked it up before walking inside the changing room. I came out and coughed to get Ava’a attention, who was currently scrolling through her phone.
Her jaw dropped. “You look incredible, the blue dress looks beautiful and it matches with your eyes!”
“Oh my gosh Xavier wont be able to take his eyes of you.” She squealed and i blushed.
“Now let’s help you search for a dress.” Ava groaned when i said that. She grudginly picked up a dress from the hanger. It was a black empire waist dress.
“Its beaitiful.” I gushed. “Try it on.” I pushed her inside the changing room. After some minutes Ava walked in and my jaw hung open, she looks like a freaking model.
“I gotta say.” Ava smirked, glancing down at the dress. “It looks good on me.”
“Good? You look gorgeous!”
“So do you.” She smiled. We changed back into our normal clothes and started searching through shoes. and found some pretty nice heels that matches with the dresses we’re putting on.
“I’m putting on converse.” Ava deadpanned.
I stared at her blankly. “You can’t wear converse, it will make you look stupid.”
“But how can you expect me to walk in this death sentence?” Ava whined, glaring down at the heels.
I rolled my eyes. “I’ll teach you, i dont like heels too but its not hard to walk in them.”
“Plus, you need to learn how to walk in them cause you cant possibly wear a converse on your wedding day.” I added.
“Fine.” We packed the dresses and heels before walking to the desk. I paid for the dreeses and and heels, ignoring Ava’s comments on how she shoud be the one paying. We got inside the car and Ava drove at high speed to the mansion. Xavier was seated on the couch, watching a movie. When he heard us come in, he glanced our way and stood up, making his way towards us.
Xavier glanced down at the shopping bag in my hand before he brought his gaze to my face. “Ava excuse us but i need to speak pr!v@tely to Brielle.”
When Ava made no move in walking away, Xavier glared at her. “Alone.”
“You can say whatever you want to tell Brielle in front of me.”
“Ava.” Xavier growled, bringing his face close to her. “Did you just indirectly say no to me?”
Ava gulped, turning to face me. “Uh Brielle, i’ll be in your room.” Ava grabbed my bag and quickly scrambled upstairs. I did hear her mutter something like ‘so f√¢king scary’
“What do you want to talk about Xavier?” I casually leaned against the wall, staring up at him.
“You’re not going to that party.” He said sternly.
“If i remember correctly Xavier, i dont need your permission before i can go somewhere.” I said in a monotone voice.
“Is that so?” He took a step close to me and i stepped back. He kept on coming closer and i moved backwards till my back hit the cold wall. He placed both hand on the side of my face.
“Y-yes.” Gosh why did i have to stutter. “Am going to the party and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
“Really?” Xavier said in a husky voice, his face was really close to mine.
I gulped. “Yeah.”
He let his hands slip from the wall and tucked it in his pocket jeans. “Okay.”
I stared at him, feeling confused. “Okay?”
He smirked. “You can go to the party, i wont stop you but i will be there to watch you.”
I glared at him. “I dont need you breathing down my neck every minute Xavier.”
Xavier’s lips curled up. “I wouldn’t michuckle that.” It took me a second to realise what he said.
“Gosh Xavier! You’re such a perv.” I could feel my cheeks heating up.
He chuckled but still had on a serious expression. “Rule number one: Dont take drinks from strangers, stay away from drunk boys and dont go outside alone. Understood?” I nodded.
“Use your words Brielle.” Xavier said, locking me with on of his intimidating stares.
His face still remained stoic. “Good.” He then walked away. I still stood there, grinning like an idiot. I cant believe i just had a conversation with Xavier, even if it was small and still had its tension, it was great!
I fist bumped the air and happily skipped upstairs to my room. Ava was seated on on bed, legs crossed as she read a magazine. When she heard the door open and close, she looked up from the magazine and placed it in the bed. Ava grabbed my arm and pulled in to sit down.
“What did Xavier say?”
I sighed. “He doesn’t want me to go to the party but i argued with him and he later then said it was okay for me to go.”
“Thank God.” Ava said. “No offence Brielle but Xavier can sometimes act like a scary jerk.”
“No kidding.” The rest of the aftertoon passed by with me and Ava eating popcorn as we watched netflix movies. We troubled the boys which resulted in Damin and Alex throwing me and Ava over their shoulders before dumping us in the pool. I gave Ava one of my clothes since her are in the laundry.
“Oh my gosh Ava you look so beautiful.” I exclaimed. Suprisingly, Ava did me and hers make-up which was perfect. Since my hair was already styled by Ava, i just added two hairclips on it.
“You too, Xavier is going to be so lovestruck.”
“Ava!” I playfully smacked her arm, blushing at the same time.
Ava shrugged. “Its true.” I shook my head, chuckling softly and walked towards the kitchen to drink a cup of orange juice. I opened the fridge and took out the bottle before taking a glass cup and pouring the juice inside. I let the cold mixture dissolve down my throat, feeling the sweet taste linger in my tongue. I put the juice back in the fridge and turned around only to gasp a little. Xavier was standing there, staring at me blankly. I assesd his outfit and whoa, he looks so freaking cool and handsome. His hair was slightly gelled and styled, the black casual top hugged his muscles, the blue jeans fits perfectly, and lastly he had on a pair of black designer converse. I could feel my knees getting weak by just staring at him.
“Are you done checking me out?” Xavier asked, a small smirk playing at the edge of his klzzable lips.
‘Gosh Brielle snap of out it’
“I wasn’t checking you out.” I blubbered.
“Hm.” Xavier said, his eyes travelling down my body. “I was actually doing the same thing.”
“Oh.” I blushed.
“You look.” He coughed, masking up his face with a blank look. “Nice.”
My smiled dropped a little but i quickly changed my expression. “Oh, uh thank you.”
Xavier smiled and stepped towards me, leaning forward and placing a soft klzz on my cheek which made it feel some sort of tingles.
“You look amazing.” Xavier whispered, staring at me with a face filled with different emotions.
“Alright everyone its time to go!” I heard Ava yell, coming down from the stairs with a pouty Damon trailing behind her.
“Why the sad face Damon?” I asked him, watching as he came into kitchen. Damon looked good also, a black leather jacker, white t shirt underneath it, black jeans and a pair of white converse.
“I asked Ava to marry me and she said no.”
“You cant just ask a sixteen year old to marry you Damon.” Ava said drily.
“Oh come on!” Damon whined.
“Go marry someone else.” Ava retorted and walked over to the living room, leaving a sulking Damon.
“Bro.” Xavier started, smacking Damon’s head. “You just got whipped.”
Damon glared at his brother. “I did not.” He ran to the living room, screaming. “Ava! Sorry, i seem to have lost my heart. I think that you have it!”
“Stop it with the damn pick-up line already!” Ava yelled followed by the front door slamming shut. Xavier and i both started laughing.
“They will make cute couples.” I told Xavier, a large grin on my face.
“Yeah they will.” Xavier smiled.
“Are you guys ready? Alex asked, walking inside the kitchen.
“Okay then, let’s get going.” Damon and Ava were both bickering about something when we got outside. We all settled inside Xavier’s car. Xavier and Damon at the front seat while me, Ava and Alex were seated at the back.
I was suprised that the place where the party is being was just a five minute drive. The party was not what i expected when we arrived there, the house was huge but not as big as the mansion and lots of teenagers were at the swimming pool.
“Brielle i’m going to check out the food.” Was the first thing Ava said before she ran inside the house.
“Wait am coming with you.” Damin ran after her.
“I’m going to explore the place.” Alex stated and walked away, leaving me with Xavier.
“I guess it just you and me.” Xavier said in a blunt tone.
“Yeah.” We both awkwardly made our way inside and i was met with a lot of teenagers dancing with each other. Some were drunk while other were still sober. My eyes accidentally landed on a couple making out.
I subconsiously held Xavier’s hand when i felt a little uncomfortable with the crowd.
“Oof!” Someone harshly shoved me making me loosen my grip on Xavier’s hand and getting lost in the crowd. I managed to escape all the drunk people dancing and walked up to a bar, sitting down on the high stool.
“What will you like to have babe?” The bartender asked flirtatiously.
“Coke.” I replied bluntly.
He frowned. “Just coke? Dont you want something a bit strong?”
“Look dude i’m thirsty and i dont want some stupid alcohol, its either you just get me my coke or get me a glass of water.”
“Fine, you dont need to be so rude.” He muttered. I watched him causiously as he grabbed a bottled coke and backed me, before he turned back, holding the cup out to me.
I stared at the glass cup, furrowing my eyebrows. ‘Dont take drinks from strangers.’ Xavier words echoad in my head.
“You know what.” I pushed the glass cup back to him. “I’m not thirsty anymore.”
“But you asked for a drink!”
“And i said i’m not thirsty anymore, so you can either drink it all up or throw it in the trash.” I got up and turned to walk away, but then stopped and faced the bartender who was already glaring at me.
“Incase of next time, please dont spike people’s drink.” His jaw hung open and he gaped at me. I smiled sweetly at him before walking through the sweaty bodies of people who were dancing with each other. I sighted Alex seated on a couch as he talked to a girl, deciding not to disturb Alex, i walked through the crowd and bumped into Damon.
“Hey Brielle.” He slurred. Seriously?
“Damon please dont tell me you’re drunk.”
“I only had five cups.” He chuckled. I rolled my eyes and held his hand, pulling him to another couch.
“Why did you get drunk Damon?” I asked him, concern visible in my tone.
“Brielle.” Damon said, well slurred. “I really like Ava she’s so beautiful and different from other girls i’ve dated. I used to be a player back in junior year and i loved it when girls fall at my feet but you and Ava didn’t. You’re like a sister to me Brielle so it will be weird for me to date you. But Ava is so different, she’s beautiful, smart, kind and sassy. She didn’t flirt with me or tried to get my attention. She’s so f√¢king perfect and i like her Brielle, i like Ava.”
I stroked his hand in a reassuring way. “You should just tell her how you feel Damon instead of getting drunk and bottling all your feelings in.”
Damon chuckled and shook his head. “That’s not why am drunk Brielle, i drank because i saw Ava dancing with some ugly dude and i got angry and jealous.” He pouted.
I laughed, he still looks cute even when drunk. “I’m sure its just one dance and she might not even know the guy.”
“Okay, i’m going to dance with a girl so that Ava will get jealous too.” Damon stood up and suprisingly he didn’t stumble as he walked into the crowd.
I sighed and remained seated on the couch, not bothering to turn when i felt someone sit down beside me.
“Brielle?” I turned and saw that it was a guy with brown hair and green eyes who called me.
I furrowed my brows. “Do i know you?”
He chuckled. “I’m Connor Mitchell, the host of this party.”
“Well its not nice to meet you Connor.” I said seriously.
“Why?” He asked, eeyebrows creased in confusion.
I snorted. “You can’t expect me to make friends with one of my bullies.”
Hurt and guilt were evident in his eyes. “I never bullied you.”
“And i was the ex president of USA.” I said, my tone dripping with sarcasm.
“I’m serious, i didn’t join them in bullying you.” His expression was genuine which tells that he’s not lying.
“Still.” I said as i grabbed a candy from a bowl. “You didn’t help or defend me, you just sat down like others and watched them treat me like a goat.”
“I’m sorry.” He said in a tone filled with guilt.
“Its okay dude, i forgive you but that doesn’t mean we’re friends.”
He smiled. “At least its a first start.”
“Teenage boys and girls!” The mc yelled making the crowd cheer. “Now we’re going into slow dance so grab your partners and uh dance!” He exclaimed before running off the stage. I smiled when i spotted Damon and Ava in the middle of the crowd, both dancing with smiles on their faces.
“Would you like to dance?” Connor asked me.
“Well uh i dont really know how to dance.” I replied in an awkward tone.
“I’ll teach you.” Connor had grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the crowd. He swirled me around and placed both his hands on my waist. What the fudge? What am i suppose to do?
Seeing my confused face, Connor chuckled softly. “Put both your hands on my shoulder.” I did as he told me to and Connor began dancing slowly to the tune. I just followed what he did and listened to his tips before i finally got the hang of it.
“I’m really sorry about the whole bullying thing Brielle.” Connor apologized again, guilt written all over his featuree.
I smiled. “Its okay Connor.” He gave me a sad smile and didn’t say anything after that. We continued dancing and i suddenly felt as if someone was burning holes on the side of my face. I locked eyes with Xavier who was standing beside a bar. He didn’t break eye contact with me, his jaw was clenched, grey eyes stormy dark. I saw the way he was glaring at Connor’s hands that were wrapped around my waist, he looked like he wanted to break Connor’s hands. I gulped when i saw that Xavier was making his way towards us.
“Um Connor i think we shoukd le-” i was cut short when i felt a hand on my shoulder.
“Hey Connor i need to have a word with Brielle.” Before i could say anything, Xavier grabbed my hand in a tight hold and dragged me away from Connor who looked confused. Xavier kept on walking fast, his jaw tightly clenched together.
“Xavier!” I snatched my hand from his grasp, glaring up at him.
“Why did you do that?”
“Stay away from Connor.” Xavier gritted out.
I crossed my arms over my chest and arched a brow. “And why should i?”
“Cause he’ll hurt you.” Xavier stated, his tone sounding frustrated.
“He’s not going to hurt me and he has never hurt me.” I deapanned.
Xavier eyes darkened. “You dont know that, stay away from him!”
“Gosh Xavier! Why are you acting like this?” I exasperated, throwing my hands in the air.
“I’ll show you why.” He whispered.
“What are you tal-” i couldn’t complete my sentence or process what was happening. All i know is that Xavier gently placed his handon the back of my neck, pulling me closer. Before he brought his lips down on mine.
