those were the three words ive always wanted to hear coming from selena marie gomez’s mouth. i was speechless. this was so unexpected.
"i love you too." i stared at her lips. i leaned in, but we heard someone honk the horn. scooter arrived. "come on. lets go." i say, lightly placing my hand on selena’s back, gently pushing her forward to scooter’s car. "we’ll talk about this later, okay?" i whisper, opening the door for selena. she nods and enters the car. i hop inside right after selena.
"so, what’d you guys do?" scooter asks, starting the engine.
"ahh. nothin, we just ate and watched a movie. and i fell asleep during the movie." i giggle as selena hits my arm softly.
"and guess who we saw at the movie theatre?" selena sighs. "zayn. with his arm wrapped around another girl."
"what the hell? i always knew that kid was a douche. then what happened?" scooter asks.
"he got pissed at justin." she responds.
"heh. it was hilarious. he kept kicking my seat." i smirked.
"it seems like you care way too much about selena, justin. when are you guys gonna-"
"I LIKE EGGS HA." i cut scooter off. i knew exactly what he was gonna say. he looked in the mirror and looked at me and i gave him a look not to mention anything about dating. he smirked.
"well that was very random." selena giggled. i brought my hand up to my forehead and sighed.
"haha. yeah." awkward silence filled the entire car for about 10 minutes.
"well, why aren’t you guys talking?" scooter asks.
"because we don’t want you to hear what we’re talking about, scoot." i reply.
"well aren’t you a sassy ass kid. we’re gonna be home in about 10 more minutes so you guys better start talking."
"hey scooter, could you please turn on the radio?" i politely demand. he turns on the radio and ‘slow down’ by selena comes on. "HEY I KNOW THIS SONG." i play around. "I JUST WANNA…SOMETHING SOMETHING..RIGHT NEXT TO MINE…i forgot the rest." selena glares at me while a giggle like a five year old.
justin acts like such an idiot. but he’s too cute.
"shut up justin." i say, pushing him.
"SLOW DOWN THE SO OHOHOHOHOHOOH ONG. damn that’s a lot of oh’s." justin says.
"alright. we’re here." scooter yells out. justin quickly opens his own door then runs to my door and opens it. he smiles, as i exit the car and he grabs my waist.
"justin..what are you doing?" i ask.
"nothing, best friend." he removes his hand and places his hands in his pockets. "do i look cool?"
"haha. nah. you look like you’re struggling to walk with your pants so low." he glares at me and lifts his pants all the way up.
"how do i look?" he asks.
"you look like a nerd." scooter says from behind.
"SEE? I LOOK LIKE A NERD." he pulls his pants lower and pouts.
"i think you look cute with your pants up." i compliment him.
"ha. no. thanks for lying babe. but fuck. pulled up pants are so uncomfortable."
babe. did he just call me babe.
"did you just call me babe?…" i ask, awkwardly walking up to scooter’s house.
"what? huh? no. i called you…best friend. you need to get your ears checked. heh." he responds as i giggle.
"you called me babe. cute. very cute."
justin shrugs as scooter rushes up from behind us and opens the door and we enter his house.
"selena, are you sleeping over tonight? or are you and justin going back to the hotel?" scooter asks.
"im too tired to head back to the hotel, so i think ill stay over for a while.. if thats okay." i say, as justin sits on the couch.
"yeah, sure. where do you wanna sleep?"
"ill sleep anywhere."
"you could sleep in the guest room, ill sleep on the couch." justin calls out. scooter agrees and smirks.
"okay then." i respond, as scooter walks upstairs. i walk over to the couch and sit down with justin. "i dont have any extra clothes or a tooth brush though.."
"scooter has extra tooth brushes in the bathroom. and you could borrow some of my clothes." justin suggests, smiling at me. we walk into the guest room and justin puts his luggage on the bed. "here, i think these would make you look cute." he takes out a pair of basketball shorts, and a baggy shirt. the shirt was tight on him, but it was super loose on me. i took the clothes and headed into the bathroom. i took my shirt on, unclapsed my bra and put justin’s shirt on. then i took my jeans off and wore his shorts. i looked like a really small person. i saw unopened packages of toothbrushes so i used the purple one.
after i finished getting ready for bed, i walked out of the bathroom, tied up my hair into a bun and saw justins back facing me, and looking at his phone. he was shirtless. again. why does he always do this to me?
"justinnnnn. im really tired." he turns around. "am i allowed to go to sleep now?"
"yeah, sure. goodnight." he smiles, and makes his way to the door. "by the way, you look so cute."
"ha. thanks." as he opens the door, i run up to him to give him a goodnight hug. i release him."goodnight justin." he looks into my eyes.
"goodnight, best friend." he leaves and closes the door. i hop onto the bed and get comfortable. 5 seconds later, i fall asleep.
i was sound asleep on the couch until someone shook me.
"hm..yeah?" i slowly open my eyes and look at her.
"i thought i heard something in the room and im too scared to go back in there. can i please sleep here with you?" she asks.
there was two full couches in the living room, and i thought selena would sleep on the other couch. but i was wrong. she slept right beside me. my arms were crossed above my head, while my hands were under my head. selena placed her head on my arm and placed the other half of the blanket over herself. she fell asleep.
"whoa you guys…what have you been doing.." scooter laughs aloud, waking the both of us up. selena removes the blanket, and sits up.
"i heard a noise in the guest room and got scared. so i slept here." selena explains, looking very tired.
"well you couldve slept on the other couch…" scooter raises an eyebrow.
"i didnt want to sleep by myself." selena says.
"wait..aren’t you almost 20?"
selena giggles and smiles.
"so what are we eating for breakfast?" she asks.
"depends on where you and justin wanna go. maybe we’ll meet up with your parents and justin’s mom." he responds, walking into the kitchen, and pouring himself a glass of water.
"yeah. could we eat breakfast with them?" i yell aloud, still laying on the couch, with selena sitting down. "i havent seen my mom in like 4 days and i really miss her." i say, before letting out a big yawn and stretch.
"alright. ill call her right now."
-6 minutes later-
"we’re gonna meet them at ihop." scooter announces. "you guys better get ready."
selena and i get off of the couch at the same time. we head to the guest room and i take my clothes out of my luggage. selena had to wear the same clothes she wore yesterday because she had no choice.
after selena and i got ready, we sat on the couch and watched some tv. E! special was on.
"almost-20-year-old singer and actress, selena gomez, was caught at a mall with a mystery guy who looked nothing like zayn. could this be her new boyfriend?"
photos of selena and i smiling were popping up on the screen.
"ugh. i hate when they assume things. my life is never private. i just wanna be a normal girl again." selena cries aloud.
"dont cry. at least people all around the world know how happy you are whrn you’re with your bestest friend in the whole world. *cough* me *cough*." i wrap my arm around her and she giggles a bit. she wipes the tears away and pushes herself off my chest.
"can i please have ryan’s number? talking to ryan makes me feel more normal." she asks, as she takes her phone out.
"yeah, sure." i lend her ryan’s number and she texts him right away.
"come on guys! we gotta head to ihop now." scooter yells from upstairs, then heads downstairs. we put our shoes on and headed into the garage, then into the van. as selena and i sit down, i look into her eyes for a long time.
"selena..are you over zayn or do you still want him back?.." i had the nerve to ask.
"i guess im over him. hes already moved on, so have i." she smiles.
i had an idea. a perfect idea. i texted scooter, even though he was right in front of me. i didnt want to say anything aloud to selena because i wanted to keep things secret and i want it to be a surprise for her.
'hey scoot. i wanna ask selena to be my girlfriend. am i allowed to rent out the staples center and watch a movie while we have dinner? please.'
i head scooter’s ringtone, assuming that he’s received the message. he texts me right back.
'sure man. we can do that. we're going to LA tomorrow. tell selena that you're gonna bring her somewhere special. you'd be a great boyfriend to her.'
scooter turns around to look at me and smile. i face selena and look deeply into her eyes again.
"selena. im gonna take you somewhere special tomorrow, okay?"
"where are we going?" she asks, concerned.
"it’s a surprise. you’re gonna have to find out yourself tomorrow." i smirk.
all i thought about, this morning, was Justin’s exact words “im gonna take you somewhere special tomorrow.” i kept wondering where he was gonna take me. we were at ihop, with mom, brian, scooter and pattie. i was beside justin and i was texting ryan the whole time.
'what was justin like in high school?' i quickly text.
'holy shit, he was a ladiesman! all the girls wanted to make out with him.'
'he told me no one liked him…'
'he lied. because everyone at school LOVED him. but he actually did get bullied, and i stood up for him though.'
'thats weird. i gotta go. ill text you later. bye ryan.'
our food comes and we very quickly for no reason. we left ihop and headed to walmart. justin and i walked around with brian. brian was with us to protect me. fans have noticed me and asked for autographs and pictures. justin was the one taking pictures. but this one fan asked for justin and i to be in a photo. so justin couldnt resist and he did as he was ordered. brian took the photo.
"whoa. SHE WANTED TO TAKE A PHOTO WITH ME." justin gasps.
"haha. congratulations. your first ever fan to take a photo with you." i giggle as justin grins at me.
