DISCLAIMER: FOR THE LAST TIME IN THIS STORY! I OWN NOTHING! CHARATERS ARE J., SONG IN TAYLOR SWIFT! *TIM MCGRAW*
I reluctantly walk into the coffee shop and slowly go towards the stage to set up once again. I pass Amanda and smile at her, I see her grin back, she pulls me to the side, behind the bar.
"Okay fist of all who the heck was that man who couldn't take his eyes off you yesterday?" she says flipping her long wavy bleach blonde hair over her shoulder and looking at expectantly.
"No one" I say quickly looking down feeling my cheeks growing hot.
"Oh that's such a lie Lily! That WAS NOT just no one! Did you see the way he was looking at you? And that little meeting…I seriously thought you were about to bloody die! I was about to die when you refused to have coffee with him! Tell!
"Really! Mandy he's no one!" with that I walked away toward the stage blushing furiously.
"Trust me Lils! I'll find out…I always do!" I hear her shout, I turn my head and stick my tongue out at her. I walk to the stage with my guitar and start to set up, the slight smile I had on my face moments before gone, Amanda is one of the few people who can always make me happy on one of my bad days, that's why I love her so much.
I apparated into the town I was in yesterday, I start to run down the streets, I pass the coffee stop and just stop. I turn around and there I see that woman that I thought could be Lily. I hear the words Sirius said to me yesterday in my head. I keep looking through the window, a heated argument going on inside my head on weather I should go in or go to work…but curiosity got the better of me, so I walked over and opened the door quietly and strode to the bar where the blonde waitress I saw yesterday was attending to a rather unhappy woman. Once the waitress saw me, she immediately walked over to me, leaving that upset woman completely outraged.
"Hey you're that guy!...the one that was here yesterday….The very same one that couldn't stop staring at my friend!" she says pointing at me loosely.
I look away and blush slightly while nodding
"Yeah I…I guess I am!"
"So what's the deal?"
"You heard me! What's the deal with staring at her like that" laughing at her own comment suggestively!
"Nothing" I say a little too quickly.
She nods her head slowly giving me the 'I don't believe you' look.
"'Kay look! Can I just get a coffee with 2 spoonfuls of sugar and cream please" I say not wanting to talk about it.
Her face softens, she smiles at me as to apologize and goes to make my order, silently I thank god that she didn't pester me even further. I take a seat while my order is getting ready just then the 'Lily look alike' got onto her stool on stage, no longer being able to sit, I stood up trying to get a good look at her, looking up at her while she starting to sing.
You said the way my blue eyes shined, Put those Georgia stars to shame that night I said: "That's a lie" Just a boy in a Chevy truck, That had a tendency of gettin' stuck, On back roads at night An' I was right there beside him all summer long An' then the time we woke up to find that summer'd gone
But when you think: Tim McGraw, I hope you think my favourite song The one we danced to all night long: The moon like a spotlight on the lake When you think happiness, I hope you think:"That little black dress" Think of my head on your chest, An' my old faded blue jeans When you think Tim McGraw, I hope you think of me
I was so engrossed in the lyrics of the song I didn't realize that my coffee was beside me and the waitress was smirking at me , then glancing over to the stage, my eyes were glued to her, that amazing woman on stage. It suddenly makes sense the lyrics, the fleeing, the crying, it all clicked.
September saw a month of tears, An' thankin' God that you weren't here, To see me like that But in a box beneath my bed, Is a letter that you never read, From three summers back It's hard not to find it all a little bitter sweet, An' lookin' back on all of that, it's nice to believe:
When you think: Tim McGraw, I hope you think my favourite song The one we danced to all night long: The moon like a spotlight on the lake When you think happiness, I hope you think: "That little black dress" Think of my head on your chest, An' my old faded blue jeans When you think Tim McGraw, I hope you think of me
And I'm back for the first time since then: I'm standin' on your street, An' there's a letter left on your doorstep, An' the first thing that you'll read:
Is: "When you think: Tim McGraw, "I hope you think my favourite song" Some day you'll turn your radio on, I hope it takes you back to that place When you think happiness, I hope you think: "That little black dress" Think of my head on your chest, An' my old faded blue jeans When you think Tim McGraw, I hope you think of me Oh, think of me, Mmmm
You said the way my blue eyes shined, Put those Georgia stars to shame that night I said: "That's a lie"
It's a beautiful song, one of the most wonderful songs I've ever hear, I wonder if I had been right with my conclusion, she wrote that for me, it makes so much sense..yet so little at the same time. I see her get up I couldn't wait any longer I had to know.
"Lily?" I call, I see her look up, her eyes searching for the voice that called her name, they fall on me, we stare at each other for a moment, her eyes grow wide, she stays there petrified. I started to walk towards the stage, but she runs right past me, but I was too quick for her, I grab her wrist and spin her around to face me.
He grabs my wrist and spins me around, I was scared, he can't be here, not again, not now, I look into his eyes, his beautiful hazel eyes that always entranced me, those eyes bore into mine, that…glitter, his intoxicating smell, I could feel my knees growing weak, I struggled to stay up, It scared me the way he looked at me, I could see that it started pouring rain outside.
"Lily!?" he says staring at me, I could hear the disbelief in his voice and well as…..relief?….excitement?...sadness? I didn't know which one, maybe it was all of them, I couldn't tell. I struggle to say something, I open and close my mouth several times.
"Why didn't you say hello?" I could hear the hurt in his voice, I could see the sadness in his eyes, tears forming in them as well as mine.
"I…I….I didn't…I couldn't!"
"Yes you could! But you didn't and I wanna know why!"
"James I couldn't…I just couldn't" and for the second time in two days I ran out of the shop into the hammering rain, I could hear him bursting though the door after me, but I just ran, I was too frightened to turn back around and face him. I ran all the way to the outskirts of town, not really knowing or caring where I was going, I just needed to get away. I ended up on a hill, I just stood there looking out at nothing, just staring off into space, I had tears streaking down my cheeks. I heard footsteps on the grass behind me, and I knew him, I closed eyes, trying to stop more tears from falling but it didn't help.
"Why Lily? Do you have any idea how much I've wondered what had happened to you, how long I've thought about you, been scared for you, not knowing where you were, where you ended up, knowing you're friends haven't seen you in 3 years!" I turn around to look at him and see him standing a few feet away from me.
"James! Stop it…" I whisper, shaking my head slowly, he walks towards me and stops right in front of me.
"I've thought about you ever since that day 4 years ago…I've tried to forget all those years of failed attempts to win your heart but-"
"Shut up!...Just shut up!"
"No Lily, I can't forget…you want to know why?' I shake my head, more tears falling freely from my eyes.
"Lily…I love you! You're the breath I breathe Lils, I love you more than anything in the world!"
"No you don't, James you don't, you can't, not after what I did to you! How I acted, how I just left you there on those stairs, what-" The next thing I knew his lips were on mine kissing me softly. That did it! I just couldn't stand it anymore, I wrap my arms around his neck and kissed him back, not caring that we were soaking wet, I just wanted to stay there forever. Without a care in the world, just me and him…The way it should been
