Forever and a Day

Chapter 10 - Life's Complications

"So Lisa? Are you really ready?" Ike asked Lisa as they were behind some trees snuggling.

"I'm so nervous! I mean I've never done anything like this before." Lisa confessed.

Ike nibbled on her ear, "I hope you've never done anything like this."

Lisa rolled over and faced Ike, and wraped her arms around Ike's waist. "Well, if I'm eloping with anyone, I'm glad its you."

"I have something to tell you to, I'm so nervous to."

"Well," Lisa began, but Ike's lips were trembling, she reached up and put her finger over his mouth, "Don't be nervous, well be ok. As long as we have eachother." She placed her head on Ike's chest, and closed her eyes.

Ike fingered her hair, it was a soft cotton feeling. His chin loved the feeling of her hair, and he turned and looked up to the sky, this was their first night together, he hoped they would last forever.

After washing the dishes, Taylor went up to his room. He found Ike's note instantly. "Damn him." Taylor said softly to himself, but he also knew the reason Ike left. He was inlove, and he couldn't wait to marry Lisa. Taylor fealt jealous, that Ike had found a true love that would last.

Taylor picked up a book and began to read, and a few pages into the book, he became bored and threw it down. He went to the phone and dailed Mae's number. She picked up, and Taylor quickly asked, "Can I come over?"

"Yeah sure Taylor. Something wrong?" Mae asked.

"No nothing, I just feel alone." Taylor had been feeling alone, he did enjoy the peace and quiet for awhile but it eventually got to him....

"Alright. Well nobody is home, parents at work." Mae sighed, she too had been feeling alone.

"Ok, thats good." Taylor wanted to dance. "Ill be right over." He hung up the phone, grabed the CD he wanted to take over, and climbed out the window, and knocked on Mae's door, she let him in.

She had on a black T-Shirt and a pair of faded jeans.

"You look beautiful." Taylor smiled.

"I look what?" Mae asked looking confused like she had never heard of the word.

Taylor walked over to the stereo in Mae's room, and put in the CD. "Beautiful, you heard me." He pressed play, and then went to track 2. As the song began to play, he walked over to Mae, who was speechless and still kinda confused, and asked, "Do you wanna dance?" He held out his hand to her.

She grabed his hand, he pulled her close. He placed his hands around her waist, she placed her arms around his neck. He pulled her closer.

When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
Its easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imagined I could
Keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you
I must open up my hands
And watch you rise.

The chorus came in, and Taylor wiped away a tear that had began to fall down Mae's cheek.

"Please don't cry." Taylor cooed.

Mae looked up at him, the light was dim, "Taylor, this is the nicest thing I've ever experienced."

"Me too, I needed to dance. I needed to feel hands around me, and somebody touching me, letting me know they care." Taylor blurted out. He leaned his head down on Mae's shoulder, and let the song finish, while dancing slowly.

"We all need that Tay. I've always wanted this."

"Yea, we all need to dance sometimes."

Megan had objected, but simply followed Zac like a lost dog to Lances house.

They reached the house and Lance and his brother were home, in the back, doing weed.

"Hey Zac...and Megan?" Lance questioned, not quite sure who was at his house.

"Yes Lance." Megan returned, she was shaking.

Lances older brother, high, got up and went towards Megan, "Hey baby." He whsipered and nippled on her neck.

"Ugh!" Megan pushed him away, "Creep."

"Oh oh, playing hard to get are we?" Lances brother pulled her in his arms, and tightly hugged her, "Dont you want me baby?"

"Yeah like I want a whole in my head!" Megan tried to free herself from him.

"Ow Lance, hear that? She wants a whole in her head, we can have that arranged." He winked.

Lance and Zac were paying no attention to them, Lance was teaching Zac how to roll a blunt, "Not dumbass, you roll it from the side." Zac was having trouble getting it right. "Ugh, no! From there.." Lance took the white paper filled and turned it diagonal and folded it. He lit the end, and smoked it. He gave it to Zac and Zac accecpted.

Megan looked at Zac, while still in Seans grip, "You asshole."

Zac after a while, looked at Megan, with bloodshot eyes, and glanced at Sean, "Let her go."

Sean handed her over to Megan. Megan tried to free her grip from Zac, but Zacs grip was firm, and he wasnt letting go.

"What are you doing Zac?" Megan yelped.

"ow, cant we have some fun? I mean I know you like me, and all."

"Fuck --"

"Oh really? Ya wanna? Your such a fisty girl." Zac pressed his chapped lips upon Megans. The kiss lasted less then a second because Megan pulled away with all her might. And punched Zac as hard as she could in his left eye. "Bitch!" Zac yelled.

Megan ran out of the house and down until she got to Robs house, where she pounded on the door, Robs mom, Robyn answered the door. "Honey whats wrong?"

"Can.." Out of breath Megan tried to regain it, "Can I please speak to Miles and Rob?"

"Yea sure, they are up in Robs room. Are you ok?"

"Thanks." Megan walked up the stairs to find Rob and Miles playing N64.

Rob looked up, "Whats wrong?"

Miles got up quickly and went to his sisters side.

She hugged Miles and cried into his shirt.

"Shh, calm down." Her brother softly whispered. "Whats wrong?"

"Za...Zac." She breathed.

Rob and Miles gave eachother a worried glance. Miles, asked, "What did he do?"

"He...he was doing drugs and Sean..he grabed me...and then Zac did, and he kissed me!" Megan cried even harder.

Robs heart went out to Mean then, and he wanted to hold her and confort her. He looked at Miles and mouthed to get his mom. So Miles did, and Rob took over. He hugged her, and Megan hugged him back. "Im so sorry Meg." He whispered.

Megan looked at Rob, and her eyes filled with more tears.

"Please dont cry."

"Rob," She wiped away some tears, and looked back at him, "I know you already know, but I really do like you. And its not a school girl crush, I really like you." She whsipered.

"Shh, I know." Rob hugged her tight. "I like you too."

Just then Miles and Robyn walked in. "Megan, Ive called Diana, shes going over to lances right now. You are gonna stay over here tonight."

Megan looked over from Rob to Robyn, smiled, "Thanks."

"I just cant believe that Zachary was even messing around with drugs. Ya know, Sean is gonna goto jail for having illegal drugs. What has this world come to? Kids and drugs? Is that what are --"

"Mom, ok!" Rob hushed her.

"Oh yeah sorry."

Megan laughed a little, "Its ok."

"Ok, sleeping arrangments." Robyn clapped her hands.

"Mom, Miles and Meg, can sleep in my bed, and Ill sleep on the floor." Rob broke away from the hug him and Megan still shared.

"Alright, thats fine with me, you two game for that? Now who wants some ice cream?"

There came 3 yes's. All 3 children ran downstairs and waited while Robyn got the ice cream. They each got ice cream, and then sat down in the living room, and watched some tv.

Ike awoke in the middle of the night shivering. He went to grab and snuggle with Lisa, but she wasnt there. He looked around. He saw her, sitting by a tree looking into the cloudy night. Ike got up and walked over to her and sat down. "Whats up baby girl?"

She was leaning back and forth. "I guess Ive never really slept outside before. I got cold."

"Well, you could have gotten closer to me, I was cold too." He wrapped his arms around her.

"Ike, what are we gonna do? Im so scared and nervous, and all I can think about is you."

"Lisa I dont know, I dont know anything except that I love you. I do, I really do. I know you are scared and nervous, I am to. But we cant back down now."

"But why not? Ike I wanna have a huge wedding, I want my daddy to give me away. But doing this, he wont. I want all my friends there, to congratulate me. I want a huge fancy wedding cake, and flower girl, and brides maids and a Maid of Honor, is that to much to ask? It is, but every girls dream is that."

Ike looked at her, he knew that is what she wanted, she wanted a perfect wedding, she wanted everything perfect, and Ike jut wanted to be married to her. So he could call her, Mrs. Isaac Hanson, his wife. "Ok, Lisa, we can go back, and wait until our parents except us. So you can have the wedding of your dreams, and your dad can give you away. I love you too much to keep what you want away from you." He smiled.

"Are you sure? I mean we can still go. Is this what you really want?" Lisa asked unsure.

"Lisa, I only want you, and Id wait forever. You want the wedding of your dreams, and thats what youre gonna get, only later." He tickled her side.

"God, you are too good for me." She smiled. "Now, I want some sleep, lets get back to where we were."

Ike stood but pushed Lisa down. She was shooked, but he then grabed her and picked her up like a baby. She giggled. He carried her back to thier little bed, and placed her down. "I love you." And then he layed down and went to sleep.
