Zach’s Point of View
I rushed immediately at her room since her mother allowed me to do so. Mrs. Y/L/N trusted me so much that I couldn’t do anything to break that.
I tiptoed towards her room to surprise her. I did bring some of her favorite chocolates and gummy worms. When I hear a man’s voice over her room
“I know it’s wrong, but … but I can’t do this without you. You need to trust me that this is going worth it and it will be our secret. No one will find out. Trust me. I love you.”
What. The. Hell.
I immediately found my way back towards their living room and waved Mrs. Y/L/N goodbye.
“Wait, darling you just went upstairs and your leaving?” Y/N’s mom blurted out.
“I have to go, since my parents will be late at work and my sister is alone … at the house and they just texted me like right now.” I made my explanation to her, I don’t want to tell her what I’ve heard, I can’t even believe what I’ve heard.
“Okay. –“ she replies.
“Uhm .. please don’t tell Y/N that I dropped by, Mrs. Y/L/N?” I smiled at her.
“Yeah, sure darling, take care.” She said as I found my way to the door.
Y/N’s Point of View
“Mom?” you called.
“Yes?” she replied.
“I think, I’ve heard Zach’s voice?” you inquired.
“No, honey, Zachary was not here.” She answered.
Then I made myself settle in my bed, “You and I tonight, I will not sleep to finish you.” You pressed play.
Mornings are hard for you especially when something preoccupied you last night. You can smell in the kitchen the perfect harmony of bacons and pancakes. You smiled as soon as you saw your mother in the counter.
“Hey, morning.” You greeted her.
“Glad you’re up, sunshine.” Your mom responded.
“Yes, because I don’t have the chance to choose whether to lay back in my bed and school.” She giggled in my sentiment.
You’re glancing at my phone, Zach haven’t dropped any messages since last night. It made you wonder what was wrong or what you made wrong.
You decided to text him first.
You: Good morning, Z. Is there any chance that you’re going to fetch the princess?
You smiled as you sent the message. Five minutes later no response.
You: Did you broke your phone? Or happen to lost it? Anyways, I’ll be riding with Tony on the way to school. You immediately sent it.
You: Something wrong Zachary? You didn’t even bother to pick up my calls and responded to my messages. I’m worried.
You inhaled and exhaled as you make your way to Tony’s Mustang passenger side. You peeked at him through the window.
“Hey, thank you for letting me be your shotgun today, T.” you smiled as you seated in his car.
“No, it’s an honor, my lady.” He replies.
“No, the pleasure is mine.” I argued.
“No, it’s mine.” He laughed and started his car.
You reached Liberty High and waved goodbye to Tony. Made your way to your locker and spotted Zach and his friends.
“When did you lost your girl, Zachary?” Marcus commented.
“Yeah, like she’s a lost one in the hallways.” Monty added.
“When was the last time I didn’t see you together?” Justin thought.
“Then, let me walk you to your class Y/N.” Bryce suggested it as he lands his arms around your shoulders.
“Fuck off, Bryce.” As you pushed him away.
You decided to meet Zach’s face and for goodness sake he didn’t even bother to comment on what his jock friends did. His arms are folded in his chest and is eyes met mine. Something was totally wrong.
Peer Communications, your second period for today and happened that the teachers are having their monthly meeting. So … Free time as they say it. Cuddle time as what couples referred it. Study time for nerds. But, I’m so pleased that I shared this subject with Zach.
He was occupying the last table, lost in his thought was the only words you can use to describe what his expression right now is. You made your way to his table and grabbed and chair to sit in front of him. You pursed your lips as you stare at him. He neglected the fact that he is aware of your existence. You settled your elbow and cup your left cheek as you spoke.
“Are we under lover’s quarrel?” you asked as you bit your pinky finger.
His eyes met yours and you smiled. “I think so. Yes.” He answered.
“Under what circumstances?” you inquire
He looked at you like his stare is worth a million of dagger. “Of you cheating on me.” He answered.
Your jaw dropped in his accusations, “Wait, what Zachary?”
“Of you cheating on me.” he repeated, “do I need to say it again?”
“When and how?”
“Oh, don’t play me with your innocence Y/N.” he said not breaking the eyes connection between the two of you,
“I don’t.” you reacted.
“Last night, I was in your house,” he spoke, “I made my way to your room, to surprise you,” he admitted and shrugs, “then I heard this man’s voice telling you things like, I know it’s wrong but I love you trust me, it’s going to be a secret trust me stuffs like that.” He finished unleashing his thought.
Upon hearing those words all you did was to laugh.
“And your laughing, Y/N what did I ever done that made you do things like this to me,” he whispered.
“Wait. Are you jealous?” was the only words that left our mouth and continued to giggle.
“For fuck’s sake, you think I’m jealous? I’m mad, okay. I’m mad.” He admitted as his anger is visible and it made you stop from laughing.
“No, you’ve never done anything wrong, except for not texting me for about 12 hours? And for not confronting me about this babe, you know I can explain things to you.” You said sweetly as you held his hands.
“I was just,” you stare at him, “listening to an audio book last night and the line you just said was there and the man’s voice you’ve heard is the narrators’ voice.” You utter.
He just raised his eyebrows and in that moment you knew he doesn’t buy your explanation.
“Okay here,” you grab your book, “turn to page 278 that paragraph with sticky tab, that’s the part.” You point at him as he found the page, “and listen to this.” You stand up and placed the earphones in his ears and pressed play.
“See?” you smiled at me. “No cheating, I was made for you Zach.” As he removed the earphones.
“Fuck!” he swear, “I did accuse you cheating on me with this damn I don’t know what the hell is that.” He said.
“An audio book.” You answered him.
“Yeah, audio book and I didn’t have enough sleep because of that.”
