Two weeks have passed and I have been so busy with classes and stuff with my mom I haven’t been able to go on tour with him. So this weekend I was finally free to go with him. We were staying at a hotel for the night so everyone could relax. After we arrived Scotty had to talk to my dad about the Schedule for the strawberry festival the next day so I was lying on my bed in the hotel sweet when I heard a knock on my door.
“Hey there” Scotty said as I opened the door.
“Hey whats up” I said as I leaned up against the door.
“nothing much I was just wondering if you would like to go for a little swim” Scotty said as he walked into my room and sat down on the bed.
“Scotty I think you are forgetting about something” I said as I pointed to the cast.
“That is what this is for” Scotty said as he held up a plastic cover and then placed it on my hand.
“what about your fans seeing you” I asked as I walked over to the bed.
“don’t worry about it, I have it all covered” Scotty said as a smile
“what did you do” I asked putting my hands on my hips.
“that’s for me to know and you to find out” Scotty said as he stood up from the bed and walked over to the door. “ meet me in the living room in five minutes “ he continued.
“Alright” I said as I walked over to the door waiting for him to leave so I could change.
“Good, see you in a few” He said as he walked out of doorway and down the hall.
I closed the door and walked over to my suitcase. “What does that boy have planned ” I thought to myself and I pulled out my bathing suit and cover up out of the suitcase. I changed into my bathing suit quickly and then headed out of my room. I saw Scotty leaning up against the wall with two towels over his shoulders.
“Ready” he asked as he stood up and walked over to the door.
“yeah” I said as I followed him out the door.
The whole way down to the pool was quiet. There were no people around what so ever. As we walked into the pool area there was no one in there. I looked up at Scotty with a confused look on your face.
“what did you do?” I asked him.
“I had them close the pool down an hour early so we could go for a little swim before we go back on the road” Scotty said as he walked over to the chair that was next to the door and placed the towels down.
“Really” I asked him as I was taking off my cover up. He looked down at me with a smile.
“Yeah, and it will give us some alone time, since we don’t get it that often” Scotty said as he started to wrap his arms around my waist.
“well that was a mistake” I said as I took a step back and pushed him into the pool. I started laughing as soon as he hit the water. I then walked over to the edge and sat down so I could put my feet in. I couldn’t see Scotty anywhere. Suddenly I felt someone touching my legs I looked down and saw Scotty coming up from under the water. He had a smile on his face when he came up. he wrapped his arms around my waist as he stood in between my legs so he could reach me. I looked down at him and notice he was trying to kiss me by standing on his toes. So being nice I leaned my head down so he could reach me. Before I knew it he tightened his grip around my waist and he flatted his feet then pulled me into the water with him. I looked at him with a shocked look on my face. All he could do was smile. After looking at him for a minute I took my hands and ran them on the top of the water then splashed him. The look on his face was priceless. It was in between shocked and happy. He looked at me for a minute and then slashed me back. We broke out into a splashing war after that. Right when he was going to splash me for the last time I went under the water. All I could hear was “Madison, where did you go”. I swam over to him and then grabbed his legs out from under him pulling him under with me. As I was going up for air I felt arms go around my waist and pull me down. I opened my eyes really quick and saw Scotty in front of me. He had a smile on his face. He pulled me closer to him and placed his lips against mine. When we were separated we both went up for air.
“Alright I surrender” I said as I put my hands up.
“I win” Scotty said as he walked over to you.
“Gottcha” I said as I jump on his shoulders and push him under the water. I moved away so he could come up but I couldn’t find him again. I looked all over the place. Then I felt something come up from behind me and grab my legs lifting me up. I looked down and saw I was on Scotty’s shoulders now.
“Now I got you” He said with a smile on his face.
“Put me down” I said as I looked down at him and started to pat the top of his head.
“nahh, I think I’ll just keep you right there for a little bit” Scotty said.
“Come on, put me down” I said sternly.
“Oh alright” Scotty said. He grabbed my legs and threw me off causing me to go backwards and land in the water. When I was above water again I looked at Scotty with a glare.
“You said put you down” Scotty said as he looked at me with a smile on his face.
“You are so going to get it” I said as I started to swim toward Scotty. Once he saw me coming he started to swim faster. I finally caught up to him when we reached the other end of the pool. His back was still turned because he was trying to catch his breath so he didn’t know I was behind him when I jumped on his back. I could feel him jump a little bit. I wrapped my arms around his neck.
“I win” I whispered into his ear before giving him a kiss on the cheek. Scotty took my hand from around his neck and brought it to his lips and kissed it.
“You wanna know something” He asked as I jumped down from his back and swam so I was next to him
“Sure” I said as I looked up at him. He walked over so he was now in front of me then he placed his hands around me.
“These past few weeks have been the best, I don’t think I have been this happy in a while” Scotty said with a smile on his face.
“Awww, I feel the same way” I said as I wrapped my arms around him. Scotty just smiled.
“I can’t believe I am going to ask this” Scotty said as he looked down at you.
“Ask what” I asked him.
“just promise me you won’t get mad” He said as he moved a strain of hair away from your face.
“I promise” I said as I started to rub my hand up and down his back.
“Did you ever do this kind of fun stuff with Chris?” He asked.
I sighed. “To be honest no, he was always to serious, we would go to the movies, or to dinner but we never really did anything fun” I said as I looked him in the eyes.
“How did you deal with that?”
“I honestly don’t know I thought I was In love so I was willing to do anything for him. I did miss out on doing fun stuff though. All my friends were going out and having fun with their boyfriend while I was stuck at home or doing something Chris wanted to do, but I didn’t mind because I loved him, but It wasn’t true love, it was more like a friendship love it just took me now to realize it.” I said. I noticed Scotty went quiet after that. He moved to the side of me then lifted himself up so he was sitting on the side of the pool. I moved so I was facing him and rested my hands on his legs.
“Scotty he wasn’t the one for me, I thought he was at the time. But I was wrong. When I met you I realized that there was more out there and that it was ok to have fun. I never realized that I was missing out on all of this when I was with Chris. I have never been this happy with anyone I have dated. You make me so happy, I don’t know how to explain it or how to tell you. All I can say is I love you a lot and I am happy that I finally realized that everything I wanted was right in front of me. I will admit I can be stubborn at times, but whenever it comes to you, I will be willing to do anything” I looked up at him with a smile. Seconds later I was in between his legs with his arms wrapped around me.
“That really means a lot” Scotty said as he looked down at me. I just looked up at him and smiled. I tried to stand up on my toes to reach him so I could give him a kiss but I couldn’t reach him because he was to high up. When he realized what I was trying to do he slid himself off the side of the pool and back into the water. He wrapped his arms around me for a second time and pulled me really close to him.
“All I can do is show you how much you mean to me by doing this” I said right before I placed my lips against his. His grip tightened around my waist which brought me even closer to him. When you were separated you gave him a big smile.
“Dagum” Scotty Mumbled.
“I will show you every day if I have to” I said as I looked into his blue eyes.
“I like that idea” Scotty said as he starts to loosen his grip.
“I thought you would” I said as I dropped my hands from his waist to my side.
“We should be heading back to the room anyways because it’s getting late and we have an early morning” Scotty said as he started to walk over to the ladder and started to climb up.
“Do we have to” I asked whining at bit.
“Yes, but I promise we will have some alone time again soon” Scotty said as he walked over to the chair that had your towels on it.
“Oh alright” I said as I took the climbed out of the pool and walked over to the chair.
“I promise once we get back home we will hang out and do something fun, just me and you” Scotty said as he walked over to me and wrapped his arms around my waist.
“Now I could go for that” I said as a smile grew on my face.
“Good, me too” Scotty said with a smile on his face.
“Alright, well let’s get going before it gets too late” I said as I let go of his waist and started to walk over to the door. Scotty just nodded his head and followed me out of the pool area and into the main area of the hotel.
The Next Day
I was walking out of the tour bus after talking with my mom since I haven’t seen her in a week. Scotty was going to go in stage in a half hour so I was going to go get a good spot on stage so I could watch him perform. As I was walking to the front of the bus someone grabbed ahold of my arm and pulled me toward the bus. My first instinct was to scream but a hand covered my mouth before I could. “Shhh it’s just me, Scotty” the deep voice said as he moved his hand and pulled me to the side of the bus.
"Scotty what are you doing" I asked him quietly.
"I just wanted to see you before I went on stage" he said as he pulled you close and wrapped his arms around your waist.
"Aww" I said as I placed my hands around his waist. He looked from my eyes to my lips then back to my eyes. I couldn’t help but smile and start to lean it. When our lips met I could feel a spark going through my body. Something I couldn’t explain. I never had this feeling when I kissed Chris. Now when I kiss Scotty I get a total different feeling. Like this is meant to be. When we were separated he kept his hold on my waist and just rested his head and back against the bus. "So when are we going to tell our parents" I asked him
"Soon, I promise" Scotty said.
"I kinda like this sneaking around, it’s fun" I said as I placed my hand on his chest.
"I know it’s rebellious" Scotty said with a bit of laughter.
"Yeah it is" I said.
"Scotty, where are you" I heard my dad yell. me and Scotty looked at each other in shock. "Go to the back of the bus fast" Scotty said letting go of my waist. I give him one last kiss and then ran for it. When I reached the end of the bus I stood there and waited.
“There you are” I could hear my dad say.
“I was just looking at the scenery, it so nice here” Scotty’s voice said.
“Well alright, let’s get going, Sara is almost done singing so you have to get ready” My dad said. I couldn’t tell where they were so I just stayed where I was. Suddenly I felt my phone go off, I took it out of my pocket and saw it was a text from Scotty.
‘You can come out now we are on the stage getting my ear piece all fixed’ After I read the message I replied.
‘Thanks you’re a life saver’ After making sure the text was sent I put the phone back into my pocket and walked around the bus and to the stage.
“Why hey there Mads, where have you been” My dad asked when I reached the stage.
“Oh I have been walking around and enjoying the scenery” I said as I looked up at him with a smile on my face.
“It is nice here” My dad said as he wrapped his arm around my shoulder.
“It sure is” I said as I looked at Scotty. He could tell I had a relieved look on my face by the way he looked at me. He had a smile on his face. He shot me a wink right before he went to get into position as the beginning of “Rock This Night” started to play.
After the concert I was laying in my bunk on our way to the next venue. I couldn’t help but think about my relationship with Scotty. As I started to move around in my bed I heard my phone go off. I reached underneath my pillow and pulled it out. It was a text message from Scotty.
‘Are you done moving around up there I am trying to sleep :p’ You smiled at the message and then replied.
ME: ‘if you are trying sleep then why are you texting me then silly :p” I replied.
SCOTTY: ‘alright, you caught me, I just wanted to say goodnight again’
ME: ‘Nighty night cutie Love you <3’
SCOTTY: ‘Night babe, love you too’
The weekend flew by fast and before I knew it I was back at the dorms for another week of classes. I was walking down the hall to my dorm room. Scotty had to go back to his apartment to do something’s so he would be over later. As I reached my door I saw there was a white envelope with my name on it taped to the door. I took it off and then went into my room. After I placed my suitcase on the floor next to my bed, I sat down and opened the letter. I ran my eyes though the words.
“I told you it was going to happen. I don’t regret cheating on you with Emma, she makes me happy and I know I can count on her no matter what. I’ll admit I was heartbroken when I saw you walk into your dorm with Scotty a couple days ago but then I realized that we weren’t meant to be. I was just holding on to something I didn’t really care about and didn’t even want. It just took me a long time to realize it. When we exchanged our stuff back I didn’t really believe that I would never see you again, but now that you’re with Scotty I don’t think I ever want to talk to you again. I just wanted to let you know I will be transferring to Duke this semester. I will be closer to home and to my family. So I guess this is goodbye.
My hands dropped to my lap after I read the letter. Tears started to run down my cheeks. I laid down onto my bed, covered up and culled up into a ball hugging my blankets. I heard a knock on my door. I knew it was Scotty.
“Come in” I yelled in between my crying. I heard the door open slowly.
“Hey pretty girl” He said as he shut the door.
“Hi” I said. My back was still turned to him so he didn’t see I was crying.
“Madison what’s wrong” He asked as he walked over to me quickly. I didn’t say anything. I could feel his arms go around me, and before I knew it he was lying next to me and I had my head on his chest.
“Shhh your going to be ok” Scotty said as he comforted he as he rub his hand up and down my arm I then lifted my hand with the letter in it and handed it Scotty. He took it from my hand and started to read it. I lifted my head and watched him read it.
I tried to stop myself from crying but I couldn’t that letter hurt me too much. When Scotty was done reading he folded it up and placed it down on the night stand and looked down at me. The look on his face was un describable. I saw anger and sympathy but I couldn’t tell how he was going to react.
“Scotty, I’m sorry, You don’t need this in your life I think it would be better if we just took a break from this whole us thing” I said as I sat up on the bed.
“Mads,-“ Scotty started but I cut him off.
“Scotty dont-“ I started but then he cut me off by covering my mouth with his hand.
“Mads, he hurt you, I told you I will always be here for you no matter what I am not going to let this letter get in the middle of us.”
“I don’t deserve you, you deserve so much better” I said as I looked at him.
“Now don’t talk like that, I told you I am here for you, you aren’t going to get rid of me that easy”. I just looked at him for a second and the wrapped my arms around him and placed my head into his chest.
“You’re the best Scotty, I am so happy to have you in my life” I said.
“Always and forever” Scotty said. After that it went silent.
Scotty and I laid on my bed. It was nice to have then there I felt safe and I knew I could tell him anything. It was silent between us, but it wasn’t one of those awkward silences it was relaxing silence. I started to doze off and right when I was about to fall asleep I heard his phone go off and I jumped.
“did that scare ya” Scotty asked as he reached over to my night stand and grabbed his phone then looked at the screen.
“A little” I said as I culled up into his side.
“Hello” he said.
“hey Scotty its mike how are you doing” I heard my dad say.
“I am doing good, just relaxing after the long weekend” Scotty said as he looked down at me.
“well that’s good, I was wondering if you could see if Madison wants to come with us this weekend I have been trying to call her but her phone must be dead still” My dad said.
“Yeah I will see if Madison want to go and let you know as soon as I find out” Scotty said as he lean down and pressed his lips against my forehead.
“Thanks Scotty well see you this weekend”
“No problem, see you soon” Scotty said before hanging up the phone.
Scotty placed his phone back on my night stand then wrapped his arm back around my waist pulling me closer to him.
“So what am I going to have to do to get you to come with me this weekend” Scotty said as he looked at you.
“Hmmm I don’t know” I said as I was trying to think.
“How about this” Scotty said as he flipped you so you were laying on top of him and tightened his grip around your waist. He leaned up and pressed his lips against yours. It was a really passionate kiss. When you separated he rested his head down on your pillow and you just smiled at him.
“I guess I’ll go if I will get moments like this” I said as I rested my head on his chest.
“You will I promise” Scotty said as he started to rub my back. “But the weekend is going to be very crazy because we have shows all weekend”
“That’s fine with me” I said with a smile.
“Are you sure you are ok with this Crazy life” Scotty asked me.
“I don’t want easy, I want Crazy” I said
“Did you just quote Hunter Hayes” Scotty asked.
“Yeah, I love that song” I said with a smile on my face. “And to add he is super cute” I said.
“Really” Scotty asked as he looked at you.
“Yeah he is” I said with a smile. Scotty just looked at me. “But I have a much more talented boyfriend, he can play guitar, can dance, and has a really really cute deep voice” I said as I kissed him on his cheek.
“Really, can you tell me more about this boyfriend?” Scotty asked.
“Well he is super nice, and caring and likes me for me, and is always there for me no matter what. You should defiantly meet him sometime I think you would like him” I said as I roll over so I was next to him.
“I would love to meet him” He said.
“How about you I heard you were seeing someone” I said as I started to play with his necklace.
“I am but it’s a secret” Scotty said.
“I promise I won’t tell anyone” I said as I looked at his deep blue eyes.
“Oh alright” Scotty said with a smile. “She is beautiful, caring, fun to be around, but can be stubborn but that is one reason why I really like her, the one bad thing is we are keeping our relationship a secret so I can’t hold her hand or wrap my arm around her while we are walking, My roommates don’t even know so when she comes over we have to act like we are just friends and that kills me, I think you would like her” Scotty said with a smile.
“She sounds perfect” I said.
“trust me she is” Scotty said as he smiled at you. After look at each other for a minute you looked up at your ceiling then back to him.
“I don’t know how much longer I can keep this from my dad, and I don’t know if you should keep this from your family much longer” I said as I looked at him.
“I know, when do you think we should tell them” Scotty asked.
“when do you want to do it” I asked him.
“How about this weekend” Scotty said as he looked at you.
“Alright but how are we going to do it?” I asked.
“How about when we are all on the bus on our way to the venue when everyone is hanging out together in one spot” Scotty explained.
“That’s sounds like a good idea” I said as I rested my head on his chest.
“Ok then it is settled they will find out this weekend” Scotty said as he started to play with my hair.
“Sounds good to me” I said.
