I Love You Natalie

I pulled her closer to me as Natalie moaned into the kiss. She bit down on my lower lip and flipped over top of me. I ran my hands over her waist as she moved her body against mine.

I could feel myself heating up. As if I were a match and Natalie was my flame. The closer she got to me, the more I wanted her. She cupped my face as I leaned back against the headboard. She straddled me, never breaking our kiss.

Now would be the perfect time. I need to tell her now or I’ll never get the chance again. I’ve wanted to tell her for so long.

“I love you,” I whispered against her lips. She stiffed, slowly pulling away from me so we were face to face. She leaned her forehead against mine.

“I love you. I love you. I love you” I repeated, holding her closer to me. She laughed a bit and I leaned her chin up to see she was crying.

“Wha-” “They’re happy tears, Beck. Nothing to be worried about” she answered, smiling at me.

I wiped my thumb over her cheek, staring into her eyes. “I love you too” she whispered back. I smiled at her before leaning in to kiss her once more.

She wrapped her arms around my neck, slowly putting her lips to mine. I put my hands on her waist and heard a thumping at the door.

Natalie hopped off of me and I ran my hands over my lips, trying to calm down. “Uh, who is it?” I yelled. “Beck! Mrs. Elizabeth and Kylie are leaving. Natalie has to go” I heard Brandon yell back.

I groaned while Natalie walked over and gave me a peck on the check. “Bye Beck” she said, walking towards the door.

I arched my eyebrows and smirked before grabbing her wrist and pulling her back around towards me.

She laughed a bit as I embraced her. “That’s all I get? A peck on the cheek? I’m hurt” I whispered, kissing around her neck. She sighed peacefully and kissed me firmly. “Better?” she asked, running her hand up my arm.

I kissed her once more and nodded. She laughed as I let her go. “You’re such a nerd” she teased. “Yeah, but I’m your nerd” I shot back, smirking at her.

She stopped mid step and turned around to look at me. I arched my eyebrow in confusion.

“What? Did you forget something?” I asked, looking around the room. “No. Not really. Beck, are you saying what I think you’re saying and if you are, please just say it” she replied.

She motioned from myself to her with her hands and I smiled before strolling closer towards her. She stepped back and I cornered her against the door, putting my arms out next to her.

“Natalie Hudson” I said, laying my head on her shoulder. She hugged me against her and I felt safe within her arms.

“Will you do me the pleasure,” She closed her eyes, almost like she was wishing this wasn’t a dream and that I would say the words the both of us wanted to hear.

“Of being my girlfriend?” I added. She bit her lower lip and nodded. I smiled before attacked her lips in a passionate kiss that took both of us by surprise. I heard Brandon knock at the door again. I didn’t look up and neither did she.

We both wanted this. It was almost like we didn’t want to pull away for fear that it would all be a dream. A dream that neither of us wanted to wake up from.

I love Natalie Hudson and, Natalie Hudson loves me.

Lee groaned as he heard the constant chatter of his family downstairs in the kitchen, talking and laughing like they didn’t have a care in the world. He hated them. He hated the fact that a year ago, he was one of them. He also hated that a year ago, he had a pretty blonde girl next to him to share the holiday joy.

Lee punched his pillow as he felt the anger course through his veins. How could he have been so stupid? How could he have lost everything by losing Jessie? Simple. To him, Jessie was everything.

He groaned again and rolled around in his bed, trying to sleep.

Fuck Chase. Fuck him for having something so precious. Fuck him for being able to touch Jessie in ways that Lee never got a chance to. Yes, it was true. Lee and Jessie hadn’t had sex yet. They were waiting for when it would feel right for the both of them but no. He had to go for someone easy. He had to fall into Rachel’s trap.

Lee eventually gave up on sleep and crawled out of his bed, picking his laptop off the floor and listening to “Creed” on his iTunes. Even the sound of “Creed” couldn’t distract him from the pain he was feeling.

He could only blame himself. That was the part that angered him the most. He was the one that messed up. Not Jessie. Not Chase. Him. As much as he wanted to point fingers at everyone else in the world, he knew that he was the one at fault.

Lee logged on to Facebook and noticed that, once again, Beck’s status had changed but what he saw this time, actually made him feel a bit better.

Beck Smith: is in a Relationship with: Natalie Hudson

“I guess some people really do get lucky” he said, chuckling. “I just hope I’ll be able to get some of that good luck as well."
