Later that day i had been in town, eaten dinner, and been in the hotel room for a while. I was bored to death. I had talked to Harry and Angela but they both had been really busy. Right now i was watching television. Gossip girl was on and i loved it. It was one of the programs that gave me inspiration. "What? No, don't kiss her", i shouted to the screen. I always shouted to the screen when something i didn't want to happen. I got kinda mad. Anyways as i was watching television Scooter and Justin had walked in the door without me noticing. "Hey Melissa", Justin said and smiled. "Hey guys! Want to watch Gossip Girl with me", i asked and smiled back. "No thank you", Scooter said and giggled. "We don't watch girly stuff", Justin said and sat down with me on my bed. "If boys look at girly stuff, gilrs want them", i said and smiled a little wise. "Well, then let's watch Gossip Girl", Scooter said and jumped in the bed. I began to laugh and Justin did too. "What? I'm single and i can get ready to mingle", Scooter said. "Ewww, uncle", i said and took a pillow. I began to hit him with it. "Pillow fight", he shouted and we all started hitting randomly with the pillows.
After the yesterday pillow fight Justin and i had gotten really good friends. We were like bestfriends. Today Scooter and Justin was singing in some songs in the studio. I had the chance to go with them or either stay at the hotel. I had chosen to go with them. It would probably be funnier to go with them than staying at my hotel room. I had done my makeup and taken on my clothes. At the moment i was wearing this:
"Ready Melissa", Scooter said who was standing in the door. "Yes sir, i'm ready", i said and got my purse. I walked to Scooter and closed the door. "Justin talked about you in the room all night yesterday", he said and lay his arm around me. "Really? What did he say", i asked and smiled a little. "He said you were a really good friend". My expectation was that he was going to say "she's really beautiful and sweet. I would love to be more than friends", but i had wrong. "Oh, well he is a good friend too", i said and gave a fake smile to him.
#At the studio
"Hey beautiful, what's your name", Usher said at once when me and Scooter came in. Justin was there already. "I'm Melissa Johnsen", i said and smiled. "Nice to meet you", Usher said back and smiled to me. "I'm her uncle", Scooter said a little proud. "Awesome man", Usher said and did a handshake with him. I smiled to him and took a seat in a corner. "Justin, take it one more time and we are going to start on the music video for it", Usher said in a microphone to Justin. Justin nodded and the melody for the song started. "Let me tell you one time" Justin sang. He was really good and the song was great. After Justin was finished Usher took us with to a house. "Tomorrow we will do the opening scene with your bestfriend who is coming here then, and the scene in my car", Usher told Justin and the directors. They all nodded and the actors and Justin started filming. Scooter and i was just fooling around together as they filmed it and after many hours of filming they were done. "Take Ryan with here tomorrow at 11 o'clock", the director said and smiled to Justin. "I will, see ya", Justin said and ran to us. "Hello superstar", Scooter said and smiled. "Hey swaggers", Justin said. "Swaggers", i asked and looked at him weird. "Swag means style", Justin said and winked. "Oh, i'm supposed to be like a teenager like you but didn't know what swag means. I must be out of order", i said and rolled my eyes. Justin laughed, and so did Scooter. "Your not bestie", Justin said and lay his arm around me. "Really", i said sarcastic. "Stop being stupid now. Your beautiful so your not out of order", Justin said and smiled. "Thanks", i said. I was about to scream of how happy i was when Justin said i was beautiful. I got really warm and butterflies in my stomach went wild.
#Back at the hotel
"Pizza, soda, candy? What more can we get", Justin asked and looked at Scooter. This was probably mine and Justin's "evening food". "Nothing, have fun while i do some work", Scooter said and went out the door. "Sooo..", Justin said and looked at me. "Soo... Hi there", i said and smiled at Justin. I took a slice of pizza and took a bite. "Hello", he said and laughed. His laugher was so freaking cute! "Should we watch a movie", i asked and pointed at the television. "Can't we just talk? Get to know each other better?". I took one more bite from my pizza and smiled. "Sure". Justin started to ask me questions about my life and i actually told him everything he asked about. "What about your mom and dad", he asked and took a sip from his soda. "My dad lives with me in California and my mom.... *sighs* She's gone", i said and held my tears in. "Gone?". I looked at Justin and tried to make him understand with my eyes only but he didn't seem to get it. "She's dead...", i mumbled. "I'm so sorry Melissa". I had my eyes filled with water but i hold it back. "It's fine, i just miss her so much", i said and looked down at the floor. Justin lay his arm around me and hugged me tight. "Should we maybe watch a movie now", Justin asked and gave me the candy bowl. "Sure", i said and took a candy bit.
#Next day & at the studio
"Melissa, don't run away from me", Justin shouted after me. I had met Ryan too, his bestfriend. We were at the studio and i just pranked Justin a bit. "I've still got your mobilephone", i shouted back and kept on running. Suddenly Justin was gone behide me and i stopped running. "Justin", i shouted but no answer. Suddenly he jumped infront me and lifted me up. "Hey little girl", Justin said and smiled wise. "Urgh, Justiiiiiiin", i said a bit dissapointed. "No body pranks me. I'm the prankster", he said and smiled wise again. "But i just did". He began to tickle me and i flipped around. "Justin, don't", i screamed. "Fine, but revenge is near", he said and put me down. "Ok", i said like i didn't care and we began to walk back to the studio. It was like Justin was my bestfriend now. We did everything together. We knew really much about each other already, but i mean we were just friends. No more. Paparazzi's had already started to follow Justin because his song "One Time" was played on the radio. Justin would be a great celebrity. "First one back to the studio", Justin asked and smiled to me. "Hmm, ok", i said and started running fast back. "Hey, cheater", he shouted after me. "Not really", i said and ran faster. I ran back to the building and Justin was right behide me. Justin grabbed his arms around me and pulled me into him. "I'm sexy, aight i", he asked in a flirty way. "Beaver, you'r on your wrong track now", i said and laughed a little. He lauged too and turned me around so i did face him. "Your really pretty", he said nearly hypnotized. I looked down as i blushed. Why did i even blush? I didn't like Justin in that way. "Thank you Justin", i said and smiled. He reflected my smile and was 3 inches from my face. I felt butterflies around in my stomach as i looked at him. Was i really inlove with Justin?
Justin looked me right in the eyes and was about to make his move to my lips, but i kinda pushed him away. I didn't want to kiss him. I didn't want to ruin the friendship we had gotten. He just pulled me closer and was now about 1 inch away from me. He was about to lean in but then he pushed me to the side. I fell down at the ground and Justin was running so fast to get first. "Tard", he shouted and ran away. "So much for that one", i mumbled and stood up. I began to walk to the studio and thought about what would happen if he didn't push me away. I came back to the building and went in the door. Ryan and Justin stood there talking together. "Wow, you used 5 hours", Justin said sarcastic. "You pushed me cheater", i said and rolled my eyes. "I only pranked you back", he said and laughed evil. "Be nice to pretty Melissa", Ryan said and laughed a bit. "Fools", i said and walked past them. "I know you love me", Justin shouted after me. "No, i hate you", i said as i rolled my eyes again.
#Justin's point of view
I nearly actually did kiss Melissa. I really wanted to do it, but our friendship would totally be ruined then. What about if she didn't like me in that way? I mean i kinda liked Melissa. She was so down to earth. Just like a perfect girlfriend, but a great friend too. "Man, she's really hot", Ryan said and looked after Melissa. "Don't call her hot. Beautiful, gorgeous, pretty", i said as Ryan nudged me. "You like her, don't you", he asked and smiled. "What? No, of course not", i protested. "Uhmm, yes you do. Don't call her hot. Beautiful, gorgeous, pretty", Ryan said and imitated me. "Fool", i said and hitted him in the stomach. "Ouch dude. Just say it to her", he said and smiled to me. "I can't. If i'm even going to say she's pretty i can't do it. Or i did it for some days ago though", i said and looked down at the ground. "I'll help you, ok", Ryan said and smiled big. "Thanks man, but not a word about this to Scooter or anyone else!". Ryan smiled and nodded. "I don't like her that really good", i said to protect myself a bit, but of course i liked Melissa really well. As i said she was like a perfect girlfriend to me. "Justin, you like her really bad! Your thinking about her now, aren't you", Ryan asked. "Nooooo...", i said uncertain. "You are!". Ryan was actually jumping for joy because i liked someone. I hadn't liked someone since i broke up with Caitlin and that was years ago. "Fine Ryan. She's hot, pretty, perfect, beautiful, gorgeous, everything that's positiv", i said a little loud. Scooter came walking to us and smiled. "Talking about Melissa", he asked and smiled. "Uhmm, no Ryan's girlfriend", i said and blushed really much. Ryan looked kinda confused. "It was Melissa", Ryan said and pretended to hide himself. "Ryan, idiot", i mumbled to him. "You like her Justin", Scooter asked with a wise smile. "N-n-no", i said and blushed. "Yes, he does", Ryan said and laughed. "Ryan, fool", i mumbled again. "No problem Justin. I think she likes you too", Scooter said. "Really? What makes you think that", i asked with a warm feeling inside me. "When i talked about you she is kinda different", he said and looked at me. "What kinda different?". Scooter looked behide him and saw Melissa 10 meters away from us. "Just different. You should tell her", he said and smiled bigger. "No, i can't. The friendship is going to get ruined", i protested. "I can ask her". I looked at Scooter and then at Ryan. Ryan nodded and smiled. "Fine Scooter, but don't say i like her as Ryan just did", i said and looked at Ryan kinda annoyed. "Sorry", he mumbled. "Sorry isn't enough", i said and laughed a little. "Well, i'm like your first mate Justin. Tomorrow we will get a singing coach for you, a swagger "coach" and clothes, everything", Scooter said and did a handshake with me. "Fine, maybe we should get back to the hotel", i asked and looked at Melissa talking to another dude from the set. I felt i got kinda jealous. "Yes, it's soon 6 and we are going on a resturant tonight to meet your mom", Scooter said happy and began to walk to Melissa. "I kinda got jealous to see Melissa talking to a dude, Ryan", i said and looked at him. "You really like her", he said and nudged me.
#Melissa's point of view at the hotel
"Scooter, what should i wear? I want Justin's mom to have a good impression on me", i said as i looked through my dresses. "Take something suitable. The boys are going to wear suits", Scooter said and took his suit jacket on. "Ok, i'll be right back then", i said, took a dress with me and went in the bathroom. I got my dress on and did my hair. Then i did my makeup.
"Melissa, you look beautiful", Scooter said when i came out of the bathroom. "Thanks uncle", i said and twirled around. "You are going to be a little pretty nice woman". I looked at Scooter and he smiled really big. Did he have something in mind? "Should we get going soon", i asked. "Yeah, of course. Do you have your purse", he asked and took his wallet. "Uhm, nope", i said i got one. I took my mobilephone with, and my lipgloss with. "Before we go Melissa, can i ask you something", Scooter asked and stared at me. "Yeah, i guess so", i said uncertain. "Do you like Justin? Then i mean more than only friends. Like that you like LIKE him", he said and tried to make me understand. I did understand it, but why would he ask? "You mean as boyfriend like him", i asked and sat down at my bed. "YES!". I stared back at Scooter and blushed a little. "Only as a friend", i lied. I did like Justin, but i wouldn't say that i did. It could ruin the whole friendship thing between us. It had been 5 (?, haha, henger bra med her) days since i got here. "Your lieing", he said and pointed at me. "No, i'm not", i said a little harsly. "You really do Melissa and i have some good news to you then. Justin like LIKES you too", he said and crossed his arms. "Scooter, you don't know anything about my love life", i said and stood up from the bed. "Yes, i do. I can see if someone likes each other, just as i did with you and Justin". I rolled my eyes. I won't say i like Justin. "Whatever you think is wrong", i said and walked to the door. I opened it and looked back at Scooter. "Just don't say anything", i said fast and walked out of the room.
#Pattie's point of view
"Justin, when will Scooter come", i asked and looked at him. "He said he would be here until now with Melissa", Justin said and looked at Ryan who shrughed his shoulders. "Tell me about Melissa then Justin. I have never met her", i said. "Well, she's really nice, we are bestfriends already", Justin said and smiled proud. "That's good, is she pretty", i asked and smiled. I knew that look of Justin when he was in-love. He was totally in-love with that girl Melissa. "I think so", Ryan said fast. It looked like Justin thought of what he was going to say to his own mother. I laughed of Ryan and looked back at Justin. "Yes, she is", he said in a dreamy voice. Yup, he was in-love.
#Melissa's point of view
"Scooter, what happens if Pattie doesn't like me", i asked and stared at him. "Nothing? You will always be my little cousin", he said and smiled as we went through the doors. It was a 5 star resturant, it was really beautiful. "Where are they", Scooter asked and looked around. "There, don't you see then", i asked stupidly and began to walk to them. "Of course i saw them, pfft", Scooter said a little embarrassed. "Weirdo", i mumbled and laughed. Justin saw me and stood up from his chair. The same did Ryan and Justin's mom looked at me. She stood up and i smiled and tried to keep calm. "Hello, you must be Melissa", Pattie said and smiled warm to me. "Yes, nice to meet you finally", i said and shaked her hand. "Good to finally meet you too, Justin said it in the phone to me that me met you Melissa", she said and looked at Justin. It looked like Justin blushed a little. "Ntaaw", i thought and smiled even more. "Justin is pretty amazing with singing and dancing", i said and smiled to Pattie. Scooter sat down with Pattie and Ryan and i sat next to Pattie and Justin. "So tell me about youself. Scooter is your uncle, right", Pattie asked. "Yes, and Scooter is one of the best uncle's ever. I wouldn't been here today if i didn't have Scooter", i said and gave a pretty smile to Scooter. He mumbled thanks. "Anyways i live in California with my dad alone and i go to school. I have two bestfriends in California and one in Atlanta now", i said and looked at Justin. He smiled back. "My bestfriends in California is called Angela and Harry. I'm 16 years old and i love my life", i said and nodded while i looked at Pattie again. She smiled back. "That's wonderful you love your life, and you are the same age as Justin and Ryan then", she said as she smiled wise (wise = lurt) to Justin. What was that about? We ordered the food and talked about Justin's future. Even if it wasn't that fun, i noticed that Justin was staring at me. Was he bored too? I mean it was his life they talked about. I smiled at him and he reflected my smile. Why was he so adorable? I hated it when i only thought about the guy i liked and nothing else. Why did i actually met Justin? I really just wanted to kiss him and say i liked him, but the friendship thing would ruin everything. I bet Justin would get a girlfriend in just some days after his fame takes over.
#Justin's point of view
I stared at Melissa when Pattie and Scooter talked about my life. I couldn't help it. I could just stare at her all day long if i wanted to, but that would be weird if i did it now. Friends isn't suppose to stare for hours at each other. I saw that Melissa looked at me and smiled. I reflected her smile and blush a little. I hope she didn't notice. I wanted to hold her in my arms and only tell her how beautiful she was. Why couldn't i just get to taste those lips one time? I wanted her so bad. Suddenly in my thoughts i wondered what would happen to me and Melissa when i got more famous. Would i lose contact with her and never talk to her again? Would i find someone else that was more special than her? Never. I would never find someone as special as Melissa is. I will maybe always like Melissa. For the one she is. I couldn't stop thinking about her either. Why did i ever fall in-love with her?
The evening went really great. Everything was fine, and my mom had actually talked to Ryan and Melissa about their lifes too. Not just only mine. My mom seemed to like Melissa, and that was positiv. Maybe my mom would even have a girltalk with Melissa about love? Urgh, what i'am thinking about? All i could think about was Melissa, all the time. I didn't think about anything else. I only smiled while looking at Melissa.
#The day when Melissa is going back to California & Melissa's point of view
"I will miss you Melissa", Justin said and hugged me. "I will miss you too Justin", i said and hugged him back. I had been there for one month now. Ryan had gone back for many days ago and now it was time to say goodbye. "Scooter, promise that Melissa will visit us often", Justin asked and smiled to me. We were still friends. Only friends. It didn't seem to me like Justin liked me. "Yes, promise if she gets to visit us by her dads permission", he said and looked at Justin. "Oh, he will. I'm sure about it", i said. "I hope so. I will miss to talk to you about my life, and secrets Melissa", Justin said and hugged me again. "I will too Justin", i said and hugged him even tighter. "I-i...", Justin tried to whisper. "What", i whispered back. "I....", he said soft. What was he trying to say?
#Justin's point of the view
"I....", i said soft to Melissa. She seemed kinda nervous about what i was going to say. I couldn't say it. I was going to say i like you but i couldn't. It stopped. "I want you to know that i....", i tried again. Urgh, what's happening? "What is it", she whispered soft and hugged me tighter. Something inside of me said that i was going to say it but the other part said no. "I really really like you", i said and blushed really much. I said it. I really did say it. "I like you too bestie", she said back. Bestie? No, she didn't think i meant more than friends? Urgh, Melissa i mean more than friends like LIKE. Melissa withdrew from (withdrew from = trakk seg unna) me and smiled. "I will always like you Justin", she said and it looked like she had tears in her eyes. "Bye uncle, bye Justin, bye Pattie", she said and began to walk to her flight. Why would she have tears in her eyes? I just said i liked her. More than only like, LIKE LIKES! "Urgh, she didn't get it Scooter", i said and looked at him. My mom looked at me a little dissapointed. Did they all expect me to kiss her or something? "You should have kissed her", Scooter said and looked at me. "I-i couldn't", i said and looked down. "It's fine sweetie. Let's go", my mom said and put her arm around me.
#Melissa's point of view
I really really like you. I really really like you. The sentence that Justin had said went through my head again, and again, and again, and again. Did he mean more than friends? I really really like you could mean more than only friends or it could be more than friends. I got a little tears in my eyes since i knew i would never get Justin for myself as my boyfriend. When he said it i first got really warm and butterflies went wild in my stomach. But then i thought if he meant as friends or not. Urgh, how could i be so stupid? He totally meant more than friends. "I like you too Justin", i mumbled as a little tear fell down face.
#One year later (Justin er 17 år nå og holder det er månden april).
Justin and i had had contact the first months after i left but now nothing. I really wanted to call him but something had stopped me. I don't know what Justin had really thought. I had sent him a message on facebook but he never replyed. I alwyas thought about Justin everyday, everynight. I was a belieber too. I loved Justin with my whole heart. "Melissa, Justin and Scooter is on the news", my dad yelled. I ran down the stairs and sat down in the sofa. "Look", my dad said and pointed at the television. There Justin was in person at the television with Scooter beside him. "So Justin dating anyone", the interviewer asked him. "Uhmm, maybe", he said with a wise smile. WHAT? No, don't date anyone please! "Who's the special one", the interviewer asked and smiled to the camera. "I'm dating...", he said but i turned off the television. "What? I wanted to hear what Scooter said", my dad said and turned it on again. "Really? She's pretty", the interviewer said. I felt like i was broken. Why didn't i just say i liked Justin back at the airport. Like like! What have i done? I stood up and ran up to my room. I should have called Justin. We were like bestfriends. Urgh, i'm such a stupid fool.
#Justin's point of view & the next day
"Justin? You have an interview today at Ellen and i have an surprise for you too", Scooter yelled at me. "Yes, i know, and what is it", i yelled back. I walked down the stairs from my room and looked at Scooter. "I talked to Melissa's dad yesterday and he wanted Melissa to visit me one time. So, this means that she needs to live here. Fine", he asked and stared at me. "Uhmm... Y-yes", i said a little shocked. Melissa was finally coming back after one year. One freaking year! But i had a girlfriend. Selena Gomez. I always thought that when Melissa came back i could just kiss her on the lips and say i love you to her, but now i couldn't do that. I still like Melissa, but now it feels like Selena is the right one for me. Why did it go one year? "Great Justin. Pick her up at the airport in 2 days at 11 o'clock", Scooter said and smiled. "Ok dude", i said. I was super happy inside, but i didn't really know quite how it would be with Selena and me while Melissa was here.
#Melissa's point of view
"Melissa, i need to tell you something", my dad shouted to me. I sat in the sofa watching gossip girl. Remember i told you that i loved to watch it? Well, i still loved it, but everything something romantic happend i thought about Justin. I guess that many girls was in-love with Justin, but they didn't really know him. Urgh, Justin why are you so amazing hot? I always said Justin was cute before but now he is freaking handsome! "Yes dad, i'm watching gossip girl", i shouted back. "Great honey, just let me tell you something", he said and sat down beside me. "Yeah, what is it then", i asked and turned the volume down. "Your going to Atlanta in two days", he said and smiled. "W-what", i asked a little shocked. I didn't want to go to Atlanta now as Justin had a girlfriend. I didn't want to see him. I wanted to forget him, even if one year had pasted. "Atlanta, meet Scooter, Justin, Pattie and the rest of the crew", he said and waved his hand infront of my face. "I don't want to go", i said stubborn and turned the volume up. "Melissa, you are going. I have already paid for your ticket", he said and stood up. "I'm not going anyway. Then you can go instead of me", i said and crossed my arms. "Melissa, don't make me to force you", he said and walked away. Stupid dad. I never want to see Justin again. NEVER!
#Two days later
Urgh! Dad forced me to go. The days before i had used to cry myself to sleep. I hated my life. I think i'm seeing Justin again then. Please, don't pick me up. Please, let uncle Scooter pick me up. I walked out of the plane, got my suitcase and began walking to where the taxicabs was. "Hey Melissa", someone called and i heard the person was running towards me. PLEASE LET IT BE SCOOTER! "Oh, hey Justin", i said as i turned around. Fuck it (sorry for banning). "I'm really happy to see you", he said and smiled. Liar. "Same", i lied with a cold voice. "Soo.. Let's go to the car", he said and started walking. I just followed him and got in his car. He took my suitcase and then got in the car together with me. It was really awkward between us. "You got a girlfriend", i finally asked. "Y-yeah", he said and started the car. "What's her name", i asked and looked out the window. It was hurting so much to know that Justin had finally got a girlfriend. I always thought i would be there instead of who he had now. "Selena Gomez", he said quickly. Great, that stupid whore. Not really though. She was pretty and i would have understand why Justin choose her. "Oh, that's great", i said but my voice sounded so sad. "Uhmm.. How are you", Justin asked and grabbed my hand. My butterflies still went wild. "I'm fine", i said and looked at him.
Ok, the picture didn't really tell the truth, only that the love of my life doesn't love me back. And i was scared of losing everything. I have cried myself to sleep everynight now and i'm afraid to fall in love again. "What about you", i asked back to Justin. "I'm g-g-great", he said and concentrated at the road. "Good". I really didn't know what to talk about with Justin. Everything had changed since last time.
