Kayleanna Owens dressed silently, in her room. The humid day, with the sunset's rays glistening through the windows of her room, brightened on today; her sixteenth birthday. But as the sun went in the horizon, Kayle got ready for the evening ahead.
"Kayle, hurry up!!"
She looked at herself in the mirror one last time and exited her room, with her purse in toe. She leaped down the stairs in her white summer dress, turned-up-sleeve blazer, and white tie-up wedges; hair cascading to waist. Excitement was the understatement. For her best friend was taking her out tonight, for a Night in L.A. Something he finally got her to do.
"Justin, you're so impatient."
Justin has been her friend since he's first vacationed here. They kept in touch. And as the years grew, so did their friendship. She never used his fame, and Justin never flaunted it. Kayle brought that out in him. She left a note to her parents, explaining to them that she was with Justin and they'd be back at a reasonable time.
"I can't believe this.."
You can say Kayle's excitement was real. Justin laughed, starting up the car, and driving into the center of L.A. He first took them to this chic restaurant out near Melrose. One Kayle will never forget. She never thought she'd experience a place like this. Justin watched her expression, glancing towards at every street they came across.
"You'll like it."
He promised her. As they pulled up to the restaurant, Justin noticed a certain sparkle in her eyes. The smile she had made his day. He parked, running along side the car, to open the door for her. She stepped out, taking his hand into hers. They walked into the building, already swarmed with paparazzi. But Kayle didn't care. Her best friend was spending the day with her, a few bumps in the road didn't matter to her. Throughout the dinner, her laughter ringed through Justin's ears. He became infatuated, all by one laughter. It would be plainly obvious to say that he had feelings for her.
But I'm not making it obvious.
After dinner, Justin took them to the next place, which was a local teen club, called Isis. He parked into the parking lot, and as he turned, he could see the nervous look on her face. Kayle had never been to any club that didn't involve school. And now that she was of age for this teen club, her nervousness was beyond shown.
"Kayle, don't worry. You'll be fine."
"I just...I don't know, Justin..."
"I'll be there...Right by your side, promise."
Justin squeezed her hand in his, gently. Then, as he got out, he ran to the other side and opened the door for her. They walked inside, the crowd overflowed to the doors. Music blared, bumping out the bass through the speakers. The heat seeped through bodies of people, from the floor, to the air. Kayle tore off her blazer and held it on her arm. She looked around, noticing people at the bar stare at her. But to be honest, they were staring at Justin. He didn't notice. He only bobbed his head to the music and paid more attention to her than to anyone else. He found a table for them and asked if she wanted a drink. She said yes, a smile spread to her face. She laid her blazer on the back of her chair and waited.
Guys would often come up to her, but she'd refuse their advances. Mostly because she had feelings for Justin. And though she never said anything, she'd hoped he'd make the first move someday. Hopefully that day was today? She'd just have to find out. Justin walked back with a Sprite for the both of them.
"Why'd you turn them down?!"
"They weren't my type!"
They shouted across the table, music blared loudly. Suddenly, the atmosphere changed. The solar-flare lights turned to a black-out blue. And the DJ dropped a slow song into the mix. Justin gazed, longingly at Kayle. She sipped her Sprite quietly, looking at all the couples on the floor. A small sigh escaped her lips. She'd wish she'd have someone to always dance with. To hold her close and just let the music take them wherever it wanted to.
"Lets dance! C'mon."
Justin got up and walked over to her chair. He held out his hand for her, she accepted. Justin pulled her to the middle of the floor and brought her closer. Nervously, she wrapped her arms around his neck. He smirked. Her small frame fitted perfectly with his. It was as if it belonged there all along. Without even knowing it, Kayle laid her head against his shoulder. Justin wrapped his arms around her. The music faded into their ears, letting it take them where it wanted to. Justin pulled away some, looking Kayle in the eyes. Her eyes always fascinated him. They were a deep, indigo blue, like the ocean. He never saw a pair of eyes so beautiful before.
"Happy Birthday, Kayle..."
Kayle couldn't say anything. It was as if his gaze paralyzed her. He leaned closer, his lips traced the outline of hers. Her head spun with a thousand emotions springing around. She had never had a kiss like this one, before. It nearly made her faint. He nipped at her lips lightly, murmuring 'Happy birthday', over and over again. She had dreamed of a night like this, but never thought it'd come true. But it did. She'd wished it and now, it finally came true. He pulled away, panting slightly. He brushed her lips with the tips of his fingers, leaning his head against hers...
"Happy birthday, Kayle.."
