“So do you know what you want?” Joe asked Taylor who was still looking at the menu in Mickie D’s.
“Big mac with some fries and a coke sounds really good right now” She answered rubbing her stomach that was growling.Joe couldn’t help but smile at the fact that Taylor could be such a girly girl but wasn’t picky when it came to food and how many calories may be in it.
“What?” She asked slightly blushing.
“Nothing i like a girl with an appetite that’s all.” He smiled at her.
“Oh you mean those girls who are like OMG i’m not eating that! are you like trying to make me fat! That has like freaking a thousand calories in it!” She finished off her act making Joe laugh hysterically while a few people stared at them.
“Oops” Taylor shrugged continuing laughing until the cashier yelled out next.For them to take their order.
“Two big macs and cokes with some fries please” Joe asked politely.
“Small, Medium or large for the fries?” The lady looked up waiting for an answer,While Joe turned to Taylor.
“Super size me!” She laughed making Joe roll his eyes.
“Ok that will be 12.87” the lady announced while Joe handed her a twenty dollar bill,Before Taylor could get anything out of her purse.
“No don’t worry about it i got this” Joe insisted.
“Come Joe i let you pay for the movies and now for this. No way” Taylor shook her head taking out her money.
“No Tay really it’s nothing” Joe argued.
“Here you go miss” She gave the women her money who had a confused look on her face. While Taylor walked away to find a table.Until she was completely out of site Joe asked the lady back for Taylor’s money and handed her his.
“Sorry for that but take this i insist” Joe smiled,While she handed him his change and tray of food.Joe found Taylor sitting in a small private booth apart from the other tables waiting for him.
“Here you go big mac,fries and a coke.” Joe sat down across from her and watched her face light up.
“Thank god i’m starving” she sighed grabbing the big mac first.
“Oh and one more thing,Here’s your twenty” he placed the bill on the table watching Taylor frown.
“How about a deal?” Taylor suggested.
“Depends on what is it” She watched Joe stuff a few french fries into his mouth.’Such a guy’ She thought to herself. “
“If we have any kind room after eating this,Then Mcflurries are on me” She put her hand out for him to shake.
“Deal!” Joe reached for her hand doing their friendship handshake.
“So…” Taylor broke the silence making conversation.
“So..” Joe mocked her.
“No seriously” She laughed hitting his arm.
“What?” Joe smiled looking up at her.
“What do you think of Jake so far?” Oh Jake..She just had to bring him up Joe thought.”
Should i be honest?” Joe lifted his brow.
“Of course” Taylor looked at him as if he were crazy.
“I honestly don’t think his intentions are pure Tay. I know you like him a lot but i just don’t want to see you get hurt.” Joe admitted watching Taylor’s face frown.
“Well that’s a bummer.” She sighed looking down at her food.
“I’m sorry” He touched her hand rubbing it.
“Is there something you know that i don’t?” those words cut Joe like sharp knife. He couldn’t tell her what Jake had up his sleeves it would kill her.
“Let’s just say he’s not the guy you think he is.Just keep your eyes open” He warned her and saw her nod.
-Two days later-
“So do you want to go to that party or not?” Jake asked sounding pretty impatient over the phone.
“Jake,i’m not really into that but i’ll go fine.” Taylor replied giving up.Lately she hasn’t been herself she kept remembering about Joe and how much of a good time they had.But also how he said to “keep her eyes open” with Jake.It killed her to know that her best friend someone she cared so much about though other wise about the person shes been with for almost a month.
“You seem pretty quiet is everything ok?” Jake asked breaking Taylor’s thoughts on the way to the party.
“Yeah fine” she mumbled but she obviously wasn’t and had a lot on her mind.
“Just relax and have fun. Want a beer?” Jake offered while they entered the house party music so loud that you could hear it from the down the block. Everyone had on such heavy makeup and short dresses and were making out in a corner. Some were probably getting in on upstairs, totally not my thing Taylor thought.She figured she cans stay a few hours then call Lena to pick her up. She already knew Jake would leave her alone and get himself drunk. After about two hours Taylor could already tell Jake was tipsy she had lost count how many beers he drank already and how many he tried to offer her.But she just took them and poured it down the kitchen drain when he wasn’t looking.
“Babe it’s loud in here wanna go upstairs?” He whispered into her ear his clothes and his breath reeking of alcohol.
“Yeah ok” She agreed as they walked up the stairs and entered the room.Taylor was already feeling uncomfortable the minute when Jake closed the door behind him and locking it.
“You should of left the door open it’s kinda stuffy in here” Taylor fanned herself.
“It’s not that hot in here.And if it is feel free to take your jacket off.” Jake slurred walking towards her sitting on the bed kissing her neck.Making Taylor immediately feeling uncomfortable as she pushed him away.
“No jake stop! i’m not doing this not here not when your drunk and sure as hell not when it’s only been a month since we’ve been dating” She moved away from him to other side of the bed.But he wouldn’t take no for answer.He then began to push her down onto the bed kissing her with force. Making her nauseous with his terrible smell.
“Jake stop,Jake!” She yelled louder but he wouldn’t stop.She then pushed him all her might getting him off of her.
“Come baby don’t be like that” he caressed her face kissing her again.Now she was getting furious and mostly scared.
“Jake i said stop!!!” She smacked him across his face and ran out of the house as fast as she could before things could escalate even more.Taylor ran down a few blocks until she was out of breath she frantically took out her cell phone dialing Selena’s number.
“Hello” Selena answered.
“Sel it’s me i need you to get me” Taylor said trying not to make her voice crack and worry her.
“Ok i’ll be right there”
“Sel hurry!” Taylor cried sitting on the concrete sidewalk waiting for her best friend.
