"He’s the best, his french accent is just amazing and his taste in restaurants for dates is just great. He’s very nice, sweet, and gentle. He even makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world wherever I go. We came back from a four month trip from Paris."She finished on all her greatest news on Aloys.
He’s wonderful and he is just who Lauren even dreamed about dating since we were kids. “That’s great, I can tell that you guys are really happy.”I smiled.
"Yes, we are. So how are you and Justin?"She asked. "Well he’s making music which is wonderful, but we have been with the crew mostly partying and well tonight I’m getting some sleep and hanging out with you."I replied.
"No dates? No adventures on them trips? No site seeing?"She asked. "Well, we aren’t really into them things."I responded looking down at my shorts.
"Alice, that’s all you used to talk about. You took pictures and talked about seeing the world just visiting places and seeing different cultures was something that made you feel alive. You enjoy that. That was your life."She said making me look up.
I bit my lip. “Well people change, and that’s what I did.”I smiled a little. “I don’t believe it, but if you say so. Have you guys been doing couple things? Any dates? Sex?”She asked making me stiff a laugh.
"Lauren!"I yelled pushing her arm gently. She laughed. "What? Just wondering if you guys have any romance. Who could have a relationship without romance? Because I wouldn’t even last."She smiled.
"We haven’t done anything in a while but our anniversary is next week so maybe he will do something."I smiled. "If he doesn’t this will be like the what? Fourth time he "forgot"."She put bunny fingers around forgot. "It would be third but he’s been busy, give him a break."I laid my head onto the pillow.
She laughed before her phone began to ring. “It’s Aloys.”She whispered. “Go answer it, silly.”I laughed. She laughed as well getting up. “Hello?”She answered before walking away.
I turned to the tv seeing it was turned to Sponge bob. Yes, we still watch it. “I have to go, but I will see you tomorrow for a lunch date with me and Aloys but if Justin can’t come I understand.”She smiled.
"Oh, I’m going to ask him tonight when I see him, good luck."I got up giving her a big hug. "Hopefully, see you tomorrow."She kissed my cheek before walking out the living room. I sat back down and looked at my phone seeing it was nine-fifty-four.
I minus well stay up and wait for Justin to come. I snuggled into the cover and laid down getting comfortable ready to have at least one date since a while.
I watched the tv for a very long time wondering if he was just running late in traffic or just forgot which I hope is not the answer. I pulled out my phone hoping to see a message from him but had none.
11:30. Wow maybe he’s on his way. I laid back into the couch a little sleepy as I watched TV. I closed my eyes deciding to sleep knowing he would be here soon and wake me up.
I sat up opening my eyes hearing someone have a hard time getting the door open.
I walked up to the door and decided to open it not really realizing that it could be a robber.
Justin stumbled forward holding onto my shoes for support as he tried getting up.
I looked up seeing a car pull out, Fredo giving a small wave before leaving.
"Justin, are you ok?"I asked as he was leaning onto the door frame now his head down. "Can we get ice cream?"He asked looking up his eyes red and his smell of alcohol.
"Justin, let me help you."I wrapped an arm around him helping him lean onto me.
"I met this girl earlier today. She reminded me of Ally."He laughed in my ear.
"I love my fans and Ally. Where is Ally?"He asked before stopping. "I-I can’t be here. I have to go back home with Ally."He looked at me shock.
"It’s past 11, she’s going to kill me!"He yelled before he had leaned on the door turning back to the door.
"Justin, let’s go lay down."I sighed hoping I could at least get him in bed before he does anything else crazy.
We walked into the bed and I went to his dresser taking out a clean shirt. I walked over to him and pulled his shirt over his head.
"No, I’m in a relationship."He slurred falling back onto the bed.
"Justin, quite and it’s me Ally."I tried to put his shirt on again. He smiled goofy.
"Ally, I miss you."He hugged onto my waist. "Justin, I need to take off your pants so we can go to sleep."I replied.
He let go so I unbuttoned his pants letting them slide down his legs and onto the floor.
I got into bed and laid next to him as he wrapped his strong arm around my waist pulling me closer. He gave me a quick peck on the lips before mumbling my favorite words from him.
"I love you, Ally."I smiled keeping my eyes closed. Loving to sleep this time.
"We are suppose to have lunch with Lauren and her French boyfriend Aloys."I said as he handed me a plate of sandwiches.
"Lauren doesn’t even like me. You should just go."He said chewing his sandwich.
"Maybe she will change her mind, it’s a double date anyway. You just have to come."I replied. He smiled.
"I’ll go, just for my love."He nodded. I smiled back. "Thank you, baby."I replied. God, I love him.
It just feels so weird to the thought of not living with him. He’s all I have without Lauren. He loves me and I love him more.
"What are you smiling at?"He asked as he began to eat his egg sandwich again.
"Only, the greatest person in my world."I replied going over the table giving him a small kiss on the cheek.
"You are my world. I will love you even after death."I nodded going back to my sandwich. I just feel so lucky with him.
I held onto Justin’s hand as I seen Lauren. “Hey Lauren.”Justin and I said. “Hi, this is Aloys.”She smiled. He looked around our age maybe in his early 20’s.
I shook his hand and Justin did as well. He sure did look like a super model. “So how have you guys been?”She asked as we sat down.
We were outside under tents. A good view of the beach was on our right while shopping centers were on the left.
It was sunny yet it had breeze of wind. “We been fine, great.”Justin replied. “Well we been good. We are suppose to be headed to a trip back in Italy soon.”She replied.
"Do you guys want to come?"Aloys asked his accent very beautiful. I never really focused on accents before.
"Yeah, sure. I always wanted to go back, what do you think babe?"Justin asked a big smile on his face.
"What about tour?"I asked him. "Tour is next month but in the late part, late 20’s and early 30’s."He explained. "Well, maybe we should go."I smiled with a nod.
"That would be awesome. It’s been a while since we hung out Alice. I’m gonna make a flight as soon as I get home."She smiled wide.
"So Aloys, how is it being with Lauren?"I asked. He smiled wider than her, you could just see this rush of happiness wash over him.
"She’s a very lovable person. She makes me feel happy and for once I finally found a girl who loves me. So I could say I feel special being with Lauren."He looked directly at her giving her a small kiss on the forehead.
"Wow, that was beautiful."Lauren pecked his cheek. "Just like you."He turned back to us. "But I just met her, I need to know what it is like for you guys. I heard you guys were high school sweethearts."He winked taking in a strawberry.
"Oh, me and Alice love each other so much and a lot. We haven’t gotten romantic in a while being busy but I’m hoping this trip for vacation will change that. I know me and Alice are meant to be and I know because my heart tells me every day I wake up to her face."Justin layed my head on his shoulder.
"Well that’s us."I giggled with a small blush. "Awh, how cute."Lauren giggled before throwing a grape at me. "Awh, how nice of you to feed me without permission."I wiped my face.
"Open up darl-"I widen my eyes. "No food fight."She pouted before getting up.
"There’s nothing wrong with getting a little dirty, are you guys ready?"Lauren asked. I got up along with Justin.
"Um, yeah. Thanks for the date. Can’t wait for the trip."Justin gave Aloys a handshake along with Lauren. I gave them hugs.
"Bye, treat my boo right."I laughed before taking Justin’s hand walking away. "You really wanna go?"I asked.
"Yes, of course. It’s been a while and I know you miss that part of our life. We are acting more of middle school way of couples than we are as a very committed. I really love you, Alice. You deserve the best."He kissed my head before we came to the car.
"Yes, paps just what we need."I sighed as they crowded our car flashing away. How are we suppose to drive off them in the way?
I sometimes wonder if they have a life of their own or if they are seriously bored and have nothing else to do but stalk and take pictures of people who breath just like they do.
As the car started and Justin sighed pulling out I just couldn’t help think about taking pictures about life but not human life. Maybe this alternative universe or maybe just the life of an ant.
I just want it to be something we never seen, something that exposes something so bare and natural, not people. We see that everyday we don’t need pictures.
