Chapter 23

I felt numb and paralyzed, as I stared out at the ocean before my eyes.
Since it was nearly winter, the waves were sending harsh winds towards the shore, pulling my hair out of my neck.
I closed my eyes, as I felt shivers being send down my spine from the chilliness.
My mind still wasn't able to register the fact that Scarlet and Travis were together at one point in their lives, whether it was a fling or not.
The two of them slept together in the past, yet none of them bothered to tell me this whole time.
I clenched my fists so tightly, as I felt my nails dig into my palms.
"You've been ignoring my calls." a voice suddenly said from behind, making me turn around.
My eyes locked into Travis' green orbs, as I felt my heart sink to the pit of my stomach.
He was coming closer to me with each step he took.
I was scared that if he didn't stop any time soon, I wasn't going to be able to control myself.
I was in love with Travis, but I knew that I couldn't be.
He hooked up with Scarlet, and left her.
"I've been busier than usual." I lied right through my teeth.
Travis shoved his hands in his pockets, and I was almost a hundred percent sure that he was fumbling with his pack of cigarettes.
Travis stared at me, long and hard, before he unclenched his jaw.
"Really?" he asked, with a hint of a sarcastic tone on the tip of his tongue. "Because I was starting to believe that you hate me."
I stared down at the damp grains of sand that were below my feet, licking my dry lips.
I knew that no matter what, I wasn't going to be able to hate Travis.
"I don't hate you." I muttered.
"Really? I was sure that you were going to once Scarlet told you all those lies." Travis said, his voice so calm and collected.
My eyes snapped up, as if if were an immediate instinct.
"What are you talking about?" I whispered. "You're the one who left Scarlet after the two if you slept."
Travis rolled his eyes, before letting out a dramatic breath of air. "I was drunk and high, Riley." he looked at me, dead in the eyes. "I don't even remember what happened that night. Besides, it was two years ago. I can't believe Scarlet's still talking about it."
I resisted the urge to glare at him, as I gulped. "But she loved you."
Travis groaned with frustration, before running a hand through his messy locks.
"I don't care about her, Riley." he whispered. "God damn, I care about you."
I stared at Travis, long and hard.
My heart was beating out of my chest, as my hands shook by my sides.
Travis Kapone, the guy who was the complete opposite of what I was, was telling me that he cares about me.
I was happy, yes I was, but I was also confused as to where this leads us.
I was in love with him, and he cared about me.
"I'll see you in school." Travis suddenly said, when I didn't say anything back to him.
He held my gaze for a moment longer, before a faint smile appeared on the corners of his lips.
"And I'll bring you Oreo's." Travis smirked. "They're your favorite, aren't they?"
