Beautiful Lies Part 3

PLEASE READ: A game will be in the next part! This game is probably one of the most important games in the world because the winner(s) get to decide who they end up with in the end: Christofer or Alex. Sorry for those of you who like Ash, he was never intended to be an option relationship-wise.

Alex Hart has jet black hair, icy blue eyes, a sexy collar bone, and lean muscles. Nick Martinez is more of the athletic type with his nice tan, brown hair like Zac Efron's, gray eyes like a light rainfall, pearly white teeth, and a pretty amazing body. Sam Mitchell is the adorable, quirky, shy one of the bunch with his strawberry blonde hair, green eyes like a freshly mowed lawn, and that one dimple that always gets to you. Zac Anderson is Mr. Seductive. He has dark brown hair, big brown eyes, a nice lean body, and smile that makes your legs go wobbly. Christofer Henderson and his mysterious ways eggs you on to learn more about him with his coal black hair, strange hazel eyes, distinct jaw line, and fit body

  1. "Did you two really have to wake us up?" Ash asked. I glanced at April. She was blushing. "We have to tell you something," I announced. "Obviously," Gumbo said, irritated. I breathed in, not wanting to lose my cool because a British dog is deciding to be a smart ass with me. "Mr. Woodbury is part of Oath's army. He's been watching me, informing Oath." April showed them the video of Mr. Woodbury appearing with his red robe and changing quickly to his work clothes. She paused it when he tried prying April off of Natalie in the video. The shot bared his wrist, which had a good shot of a tattoo of a ring on fire.
  2. "So your teacher is apart of Oath's army. So what?" Ash said. I rolled my eyes. "It means we have to get that Compor from Juno and tell Sam so he could capture Mr. Woodbury and he could lead us to wherever Oath is hiding." Ash went back to his sleeping bag and snoozed off. "That could have waited until bloody morning," Gumbo scolded, following suit to Ash. "That information is useless unless we find the Compor. Although I must commend you on your fine eye sight. I can only see black and white. Damn you humans and your ability to see the world in swirls of color." I felt a laugh coming up, but I didn't think Gumbo was joking. "You're awfully quiet," April said to Alex. "What do you think of this?" Alex shifted uncomfortably as he looked up at me. I bit my lip, hoping he wouldn't say anything negative like what Ash and Gumbo said. "I guess we have to find the Compor now." I tried smiling at him, but it wavered when he left for his sleeping bag and didn't look at me again.
  3. "He hates me," I said quietly. I sat back down where April and I originally started, laptop by my feet. "He doesn't hate you. Believe me, I would know. He wants you so much it's hurting him. Especially since he thinks he's a third wheel to you and Christofer." I faced her and said, "A third wheel? No way. It's a like triangle. I like them equally." April stifled a laugh. "A like triangle?" I found the corners of my mouth tug up into a smile. "I'm not ready for the big L-word yet." She nudged me on the arm and in a sing-song voice said, "Oh, you mean looooove?" I grinned and nodded my head. "Well you should get used to it then," she said in a more serious tone. "Because you've got it bad for those two."
  4. I was playing security guard by myself now after insisting April to get some rest since it was my time to go. I couldn't go back to sleep for fear of having another painful memory swipe through my mind as easily as a credit card. Every time I heard a noise, as easily as a twig snap, I'd jump, ready to take a stab with my handy dandy butcher knife. I rested easy after several minutes of silence and dropped my butcher knife in my lap so I could get it fast if I needed to. I picked up the laptop and searched for my famous Ferris Wheel video. I watched it over and over again, just so I could see Christofer's face. Stalkerish, I know, but I missed him so much. "Hey." I grabbed for my butcher knife and spun around, ready to fling it at whoever. "What the hell, put that thing down!" Alex.
  5. He put his hands up as he inched around me, surrendering. I swallowed a laugh and murmured an apology. I set the knife back down in my lap and closed the laptop. I surely did not want Alex knowing I was watching a video of my near death just so I could see my ex boyfriend again. "Can I take a seat?" I shrugged coldly. "I don't know, are you going to have another bipolar attack on me again?" Alex took a seat. "I didn't say you could sit down," I said through gritted teeth. Alex got up and sat down on the ground across from me. "April talked to me after you told her to go to sleep." I sucked in my breath sharply. "What did she tell you?" Alex leaned back on his hands. "You're right. She's way better at this mind stuff than me." "What did she tell you, Alex?" I repeated sternly. "She said to cut you some slack because it's hard liking two guys at the same time." I swallowed my breath. "It's also hard when one of the guys you like hates your guts." Alex sat in the seat, deserting the ground. "Aw, Christofer doesn't hate you, princess."
  6. Princess. The word gave me butterflies in my stomach. But I was still holding a grudge. "I wasn't talking about Christofer, you dumb flake." Alex faked offense on his face. I slapped him on his arm and said, "I'm serious." Alex's expression softened up in a more serious manner. "I don't hate you. I just feel like I'm less important than I was before. I was...jealous." He said the word "jealous" so softly I could barely hear him. Admitting this was tough for him; you didn't have to be a mind reader to know that. "You have nothing to be jealous about. I like, Alex. A lot." He smirked. "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me." And when I thought all of Alex's conceitedness was gone, he proves me wrong once again. "But I'm sorry. I overreacted." He sighed heavily."I'm new to this. Here I am, this arrogant guy, used to getting everything he wants. Especially the girls. When I met you, I knew it would be a challenge. But I didn't know it would be this hard. It's not easy for me, you know. I already lost a girl to someone else. I don't want it happening again. But I guess that's a situation I can't control."
  7. I knew I should have dropped the subject. "Misty," I said. I didn't have to though, because Alex already did. "I'd rather not...She's gone. I can't do anything about it now." I just nodded. I stared at Alex, taking in everything. His eyes that I loved so dearly, his lips, his nose, his hair. I brushed my fingers against his collar bone and down his arms. "Sorry," I whispered. Alex held onto my wrists and pulled me close. "Do I have to make the first move every time?" He asked, entwining our fingers together in a knot. He then kissed me on the corner of my mouth, teasing me. I looped my arms behind his neck and pulled him in, our lips meeting in an explosion of fireworks. He kissed my bottom lip and put his hand on my cheek. I loved Alex. I was sure of this now. I loved him. But maybe it wasn't time for him to know. I mean, I didn't want to make that promise and take it away from him because I felt the same way about Christofer. We pulled away for a gasp of breath.
  8. He was smiling, knowing he did well on his part. I wanted to tell him though. I wanted to let him know that I loved him. I wanted to, but... "You're going to keep your promise, right?" I asked instead. Alex cringed ever so slightly, expecting me to say the big line too. "What promise?" He asked, kissing each and every one of my fingers which sent shivers up and down my spine. "That you'd never leave me," I said in a soft voice. Alex crossed his heart with his finger, and then with mine. "On my grandpa's soul." ~ I slept on Alex's shoulder last night. I guess I kind of failed on my first shift of lookout. But I guess everything was okay considering that no one died in their sleep in any mysterious way. I walked back to camp with my arm locked around Alex's. April glanced at me and gave me a thumbs up. I mouthed a "thank you" to her. I sat down on a log while Ash narrowed his eyes at me. "What?" I asked. "Nothing. I just find it funny that while we're adventuring into the unknown trying to rescue your ex boyfriend you're off canoodling with Alex, over here."
  9. I dropped my arm to my side. "We were not canoodling. I was simply forgiving him." Gumbo smirked. "Yes, Ash. Have you not heard of the ancient binding of forgiveness? It requires the swapping of spit. Forgiving is definitely something they were doing." I flushed pink while Ash laughed. I looked at the ground and smiled. I could sense Alex grinning too. "So what's for breakfast?" April asked eagerly. "I'm starving." Ash took a seat next to April and put his hand on her knee. "Don't worry, hon. I know a place we can get some free food."
  10. We packed up camp and started walking again. Ash refused to tell me where we were going. April was in the front with Alex, giving him tips on how to strengthen his powers and how to use them properly. Gumbo trailed behind with me. "Was I of any assistance for you last night?" He inquired with a leer. "At first you made us want to strangle each other, but then all went well after I told him I liked him. We're good friends, as far as I'm concerned. He knows I still like Christofer, so I guess I can be more open about it now." Gumbo switched from my right side to my left. "You kissed Christofer already, right?" I felt myself go red all over again. I remembered his touch of his lips pressed against mine on my porch. I remember every single muscle in my body wanting him. Wanting to feel his protection. Wanting to feel the adrenaline course through me. Whenever I'm with Christofer it's like I'm on a roller coaster. The anxiety, the butterflies, the energy, the hunger for more. But then I remembered Alex's expression when he saw me kissing. I remember us slow dancing, his feet guiding me because I can't dance if my life depended on it. I remembered his face when we touched hands in the bowl of chocolate covered pretzels and he didn't know what to do. I remembered everything.
  11. I was over-thinking this way too much when all I had to do to answer Gumbo's question was a yes. I nodded. "Now compare it when you kiss Alex. Is there a difference?" I thought about it and said, "I don't know how to explain it. The faces are different but the feelings are the same. I can't really say, Gumbo. Why are you asking me this?" The canine wagged his tail and switched sides and switched sides with me again. "Christofer means dearly to me, love. He might love you more than he loves me, but I'll make an exception to that. I just don't want to see him getting hurt because a mortal girl like you can't make up her bloody mind. This is reality, not a book or a movie. People will die. If Christofer dies, I don't want it to be for nothing. I want him to die because he wanted to protect the girl he loves, whom he hoped would remember him and learn to love him back like back in the good old days." I tried keeping my voice steady and calm, but facing the fact that people will actually die made me want to cry. "Christofer is not going to die." Gumbo winced. "As much as I'd like to agree with you, love, I'm afraid I can't promise you that."
