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
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

I clenched my fists so tightly, as I felt my nails dig into my
"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

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
