??????????Episode 30

4 Day Trip

Just stepping out of the jet, the hot air hit me on the face. It made me

realize how cool it was on the jet.

The doorman opened the car door and Jason pushed me into the

limo. Thanks.

“Jason!” I said a little louder. I turned to look at him, seeing him

relax in the limo like he doesn’t care about the world made me

realize that he was no help.

The limo started and I looked at just in time to see a big, fat sign

that says, “WELCOME TO L.A.!”

I glared at Jason, who was looking at me. He knew that I saw the

sign and said, “You’re welcome.”

I was sending him death glares now, “Well, I never asked you to

bring me here, did I? And I am not even enjoying it – not a bit.”

“Well, do you say ‘thank you’ to everything you like? No, right?

You say it because someone did something kind for you. And trust

me, you are going to enjoy it.” Jason said, smirking at his smart – a$$

reply and my expression.

I took a deep breath.

Calm down, Vanessa. I told myself.

The limo drove to who knows where.

“Wait, how long are we going to stay here?” I asked Jason.

“Maybe 4 days.” he said.

“4 days?!” I asked.

“Well, we are going to be traveling for about 4 days. We are only

staying here for about, ” he said, looking at his watch, “4 and a half hours.”

“What are we going to be doing here? – Wait! If we are going to

be traveling . . . where are our clothes?” I asked, widening me eyes.

Jason sat up and cleared his throat.

“Well . . . I never really thought of – I have an idea! We can go

shopping here.” he said, pulling out his expensive wallet, “Here, this

is a credit card. Just use it for whatever you want.”

He held it out. I was so close to refusing it, but thinking about it, I

don’t want to wear the same outfit, underwear and br@ same. That is

completely disgusting. (I have OCD.) And I don’t have any money

with me, so I guess the only way is to us it.

I took the credit card and said, “Thanks.”

“See? I am prepared for everything that comes.” he said, leaning back again.

I rolled me eyes as I looked out of the window.

“Excuse, Mr. Cohen, do you want me to drive you to the nearest

mall or store?” Tom, the driver asked.

Jason nodded, still looking out of the window.

L.A. was beautiful and it is amazing. The streets were full of

people. Thinking about it, L.A. is pretty big. I sat up.

“Wait, Jason, have you ever been here? You know, I don’t want to be lost.” I said.

He looked at me, “Of course, I’ve been here plenty of times. I always travel here.”

I nodded in relief and continued to look out of the window, until

we pulled up to a shopping mall.

I got out of the car.

“Meet you back here in 3 hours.” Jason said to Tom.

Jason grabbed my hand and pulled me into the mall. The sparks

flew in between us. Sometimes, I wonder, am I the only one that

feels the sparks? Jason looks like he doesn’t feel a thing. And

sometimes I wonder, does his stomach turn when I look at him, like he does to me.

I shook my head, trying to clean my thoughts. I notice that

someone people were glaring out way. It was kinda uncomfortable.

Jason pulled me into the first store that he saw. Brandy Melville

I looked around, it was really dark. Jason just grabbed a whole

bunch of clothes. He threw it at me and said, “Change.”

“What?!” I said, looking down at all of the clothes.

He shoved me into a changing room.

Wow, thanks! I thought.

Layla giggled. I rolled my eyes. Star – struck.

I put the pile of clothes on the seat and picked up the first shirt.

My eyes widened as I turned it around . . . Very, very reavealing.

“Vanessa, just change into it and come out!” Jason said. I

jumped, it was like he could see be through those door. I blushed.

I reluctantly change into the shirt with the black shorts. I really

liked the outfit, but the shirt . . . could improve a little. Just a little.

I opened the door and showed Jason.

“We are buying that.” he said, looking at me as he pointed to me.

The lady next to him, I assume was one of the worker, was too busy

staring at Jason, to probably understand him, she just mindlessly

nodded. Jason, on the other hand, didn’t see that she was staring him at all.

I rolled me eyes.

“But, this,” I said, turning around to show Jason what I was

talking about, “is too revealing. You could see me bra and that is not necessary.”

“So?” he said, shrugging.

“What do you mean ‘so?’ I say we don’t buy it and there are

plenty of clothes in this store to choose from.” I said, pointing at all of

the clothes around me.

“It’s only revealing a little. It’s barely anything.” he said.

“A little? My whole back is revealed. And let me remind you, who

is wearing this outfit?” I asked, smirking at my remark.

“Oh, is that how it is? Than, who is buying you the clothe? I am

fine with you wearing the same thing for maybe the pass 10 days.”

Jason said, smirking as my smirk fell.

“10 days?! I thought you said 4 days.” I said.

“Babe, I said ‘about’.”

I stayed quiet. I didn’t want to wear the same thing over and over

again. It is beyond gross. I sighed. He won. He always win.

I walked back into the changing room and slammed the door, as
he laughed.

I rolled my eyes. If he wasn’t rich, royalty and we weren’t in

public, I would have punch him right there.

I changed into the next outfit and this time, it wasn’t that

revealing. I liked it.

And, he had to approve it in order for him to buy it.

I felt like I walked into that changing room for at least a thousand

of time and I have changed into a million different outfits.

“Are we done, yet?” I asked.

“Yep, we just have to pay.” Jason said.

“Thank the Lord.” I mummured, “Even my stylist don’t take this long.”

“Pardon?” Jason asked, appearing next to me.

I jumped a little and looked at him, “Nothing, nothing. Ok, now I got to change. Ok, yeah, bye.”

I quickly changed, I can’t wait to get out of this place.

When I finished changing, the clothes were brought and was in a bag. We even have someone holding all of my stuff.

“Wait, aren’t you going to buy some clothes too?” I asked.

“I am right now.” Jason said, grabbing my hand and pulled me to

a store that sells all men stuff.

“Sit here.” Jason said, plopping me into a seat as he went into

the changing room and change. Trust me, I didn’t not enjoy it. The

seat was all comfy, but it was horrible. I felt like he took longer on his

clothes than my clothes and I was straving. I realized that I didn’t eat

any breakfast and it was lunch time. My mom would probably me if she found out that I was skipping meals.

“Jason!” I shouted a little bit too loud. Everyone turned to look at me. I blushed.

I’m about to kill myself.


“Are you done, yet?”

“I don’t know, almost.”

“Hurry up, please. I am straving!” I said.

“You’re not even burning any calories.” he said.

“I didn’t eat any breakfast!!” I said, breathing deeply.

“D@mn, chill!” he said.

“I will if you come out right now.” I said.

He didn’t answer me.

“Jason?” I asked, “Can you please hurry up? Wait, can I leave and grab my food?”


“Why?” I asked, “I am straving.”

“Just hold a second.”

“I don’t need to, you already have a pile of clothes over here,

didn’t you forget?”

“Just wait.” he said.

“I am going to leave in 8 minutes if you don’t come out.” I said firmly.

He sighed and got out of the changing room. He paid for all of the clothes. I grabbed his hand this time.

“Come on! I am going to die of hunger!” I said as I dragged him to the food court.

“Hey, you want to eat at a resturant?” Jason said.

“You know how long I waited for you? You might not be hunger,

but I am and if I bet the place that you are thinking is far away, so

no!” I said, looking at me.

“I was asking.” Jason said, holding up his hand, surrenderring,

“And anyways, this are fast food, they aren’t healthy and they are gross.”

I turned to him, “Great! I need to gain weight anyways. And when

did you care about what is healthy and what is not?”

He smirked, ’cause he doesn’t.

I dragged him to the nearest fast food store and ordered a large

french fries, a large soda and 3 chocolate chip cookies. I paid with

Jason’s credit.

I sat down on a table with Jason and started eating.

When you are hungry, everything taste good.

Jason reached over grabbed my soda and drank it.

“Hey!” I said, “that is my soda!”

“Sorry,” he said, smirking, “I didn’t know. Well, i guess it’s mine now.”

I grabbed the soda from him, “Not anymore.”

I took a long drink and swallowed it. The bubble tickling my throat

and the hot air on your nose make you feel like a dragon.

Jason grinned, “That kind of like kssing.”

“Not technically.” I said, rolling my eyes at him as I continued eating.

“Yes, it is – ”

“Ok! I got it! I kssed you, I kssed you, ok? Happy?” I said trying

to shut him up. I’m just trying to eat my food peacefully.

“Hey, did you order my proportion?” he asked. I stopped eating.

“I don’t know what you like and I don’t know what you allergic to, I

don’t want to die eating something. And you never asked me to.” I said.

“I like soda, chicken nuggets, chips and pizza. I am allergic to

nothing, so would you order my food?” he asked, grinning.

“No thanks, I pass.” I said, munching on my fries.

“Thank I am going to eat your food and anyways, you can finish that.” he said

“Stop being judgemental and I can finish this, watch!” I said,

taking a big bite of my chocolate chip cookie.

“Ohh, I am not going to watch you, I am going to eat too!” he

said, stealing one of my chocolate chip cookies and shoved it in his mouth.

“My cookie died!” I said, leaning over to smack Jason, “That

wasn’t for you! That was for me.”

“Opps.” Jason said, after he swallowed, “Ohh and I am feeling thirsty now.”

My eyes widened as I grabbed my soda away from him. But he

wasn’t planning on grabbing my soda, again, he stole my cookie. My last cookie.

“Hey! You tricked me! And you ate my last cookie!”

“You didn’t say you can’t trick.”

“I am going to kill you!” I said, putting the soda down.

“Not after I eat some fries!” Jason said, grabbing a handful of fries and held it high.

I got off of my seat and stood up, trying to reach for my fries. But

of course he stood up too and he was taller than me by more than 5 inches.

“Give me it!” I said as I tippy – toed in my heels.

Jason laughed, before putting some of my fries into his mouth.

“You are so mean!” I said after I gave up. I plopped down on my
seat, pouting.

“I know.” he said, as he grabbed my soda and took another sip.

“Could you just buy your own food?” I asked.

“You have to save money.”

“Save my a$$! I bet you never save money, you lazy b.utt.” I said, as I eat my fries.

“See, you are perfectly fine sharing your food.” he said as he continue eating.

“Oh, trust me. I am dying on the inside, you just don’t know.” I

said, as I rolled my eyes.

He laughed. I had to smile because just seeing him laugh, you

feel like laughing too. Do you ever have that feeling? You just can’t

help yourself but just to smile because you know that made
someone happy.

I drank you soda and we continued to eat until we were full. I

guess he was right, I could finsih it by myself, I finsihed because of him.

We threw the food away and walked out of the mall.

“Great, we speand exactly 2 hours in there.” he said, checking his watch.

“I see Tom!” I said. We went and put our shopping bags down.

“Where are we going now?” I asked, Jason when we got into the car.

“We are not riding the car, we are walking around this area.”

Jason said, holding out a hand to help me out of the car.

I took his hands and got out. I expected him to left go of it when I

got out, but he didn’t. He held onto it. I wouldn’t let go of his hands

too. They were warm and welcoming. I liked holding his hand, I love

all of those moments that we held hand.

We walked around the block, looking into windows. It was

interesting. This place was almost like New York in the summer. It

was busying and everyone seem to know where they are going. It

was hot. I really like it here.

“Come in here!” Jason said, pulling me towards a old and small




The building the dirty and dark and the stairs were uneven. And it

smells like wet dog in here. There are big graffitis among the grey

and dull yellow walls. What a place that Jason would be going into. I

thought as I continued looking around. A really dim light was lit on

someone’s door. It’s kind of weird that people live here.

We continue climbing up the stairs until we reached a big red

door, that was graffitied with the word btch.

“Wow, what a place.” I said, looking at Jason.

“Like you said, don’t be judgemental. This place is better than it is

seemed.” Jason said, looking at me.

I nodded and spoke as sarcastically as possible, “Yep, nice

place, full of beauties, just love this place.”

“Just shut up.” he said.

I laughed.

He ignored me, “Are you ready for it?”

Before I even replied, he opened the door and I have to gasp.

Yeah, this place isn’t bad at all.

“What did I say?” Jason said.

God, why does he always have to win? Why does he always

prove me wrong? I thought as I blushed.

Again, he grabbed my hand and all me to the edge of the biulding

to watch the sunset.

“You said that we want to watch more sunsets, right?” he asked.

I died a little bit on the inside.

He remembers . . . he thought about it . . .

Isn’t he the best? Thoughtful? Sweet? Caring?

I blushed, “You still remember?”

He turned around, scratching his head, “I guess.”

I hugged him from behind. The heat from his body was warm and

it was coming through my dress and onto my skin. My heart beat a

little faster and my stomach twisted having him in my amr. It felt nice having him in my arm.

“Thanks.” I said, pulling away.

He cleared his throat, “Your welcome.”

I couldn’t tell what he was thinking or feeling, his face was so

straight with no reable emotions.

“Come.” he said, shaking me out of my thoughts.

He sat on the edge of the building. My mouth opened but I
couldn’t speak.

“I wouldn’t fall, trust me. I’ve been it plenty of time.” he said,

smirking. With the sun right behind, his beauty was inhuman, my stomach twisted again.

I walked up to him and he helped me sat down.

“What if I fall?” I asked.

“I’ll fall with you.”

I stared at him for a few moment. I don’t know if he was telling the

truth or not. He was like a mask. You are never certain what was really underneath his mask.

“Are you serious?” I asked him, staring at his eyes. His eyes

draws me in. They are now electric blue with a hint of gold.

“I am serious.” he said. I could feel his breath against my skin and I shivered a little.

I looked away, staring at his eyes for a long time, makes me feel

expose, like he could see every single flaw in my life, like he could

see my memories like he could see right through me.

“Just don’t look down and could you close your eyes for a
second?” he asked.

I nodded and closed my eyes. I held onto his arm, but I didn’t feel safe without it.

“Just hold a second . . . almost.” Jason whsipered. I smiled.

“Ok, open your eyes.” Jason said.

I opened my eyes and tried to hold back another gasp. It was

beautiful, the sky had a light shade of every color in a rainbow. And

the tall, glass building in front of us make the sunset in front of me more dramatic.

“This is beautiful, how did you know the exact time?” I asked, not

looking at Jason. I couldn’t even tear my eyes away from the sunset.

He chuckled, “I came here way too often.”

“I would come up here every single day if I was you.” I said.

Down below, a song played; Glad You Came.

“I know that song!” I said and the next thing you know, I started

singing along. I never sang in front of a boy before, never, ever did.

He was the first boy that I have.

When the song was over another song was playing, I turned to

him, “Does this always happen?”

“No, I guess, they are having a party, somewhere below.”

“WOW, in this bulding, I’m surprise it is not tumbling down.” I said.

He laughed.

The night continued and the citylight turned on. The songs

continued playing and I continued sing. Those song that I sorta

forgot, I made up lyrics that goes with the rhythm. Jason laughed. It

was one of really good night. I think it is the best night of my life.
