I watched from the bleachers as Dakota practiced the assigned football drills with a large number 8 facing towards me on the back of his red and black jersey. I smiled as I watched how hard he was pushing himself. Practice was over ten minutes ago but he insisted on staying. As soon as school started we tried out for the team. Dakota was immediately put on as quarterback, which came to no surprise to me.

I took off my helmet and took a gulp of my water. It's been a week since the party and Dakota hasn't said anything about it. Not even a hint of any sort. I'm glad he doesn't remember but at the same time it puts me on edge being the only one who can't forget. I'm trying to erase that night from my memory, occupying my mind with other distractions.

"Hi Luka." Gemma, my number one fan since I've started high school sat beside me. Her long dark hair flowed down the sides of her pale porcelain face. I guess you could say we're friends. We share a class together and unfortunately my new friend keeps making unwanted advances on me.

"Hey." I flashed her a smile.

"Hows practice?" She set her books down on the bleachers.

"I've already finished. Just waiting on Dakota. He likes to practice a little longer than everyone else." I looked over at him.

"You two are pretty close huh?" My heart dropped at those words and I arched my brow at her in fear that she somehow might know about that night.

"Yeah.. Why?" Can you be anymore suspicious, idiot.

"You're always together." She chuckled. I only nodded, unsure of what to say. Don't be nervous, I've just met this girl and I don't remember seeing her at the party. I'm the only one that knows. The only way that anyone else would know is if they were there at my house and seen the two of us.

"Anyway, I was thinking we should hang out after you're done here." She bit her lip a tad and touched my leg. Her slender fingers rubbed up to my thigh. I immediately jolted and moved away from her.

"Whoa, no." I shot up and chuckled nervously.

"Sorry Gemma but-"

"Hey, I'm done." Kota came up from behind me. His ash brown hair was drenched with sweat and his cheeks were rosy. My heart raced at the sight of him. It's been doing that a lot lately.

"Well I'll see you around Gemma." I smiled curtly and grabbed my duffle bag, thankful that Dakota interrupted us when he did. She pouted and let out a sigh as we walked past her. I don't want Gemma getting any ideas that I like her in that way. I just

lothes at me.

"What the hell?"

"Wear those, trust me. You'll look good in them." He smirked at me. My heart raced as I walked back into the washroom to change. If I want to forget that night, I need to stop going goo goo ga ga every time he looks at me a certain way. It was only after that night that with every look he gave made me feel tingly inside.

"Since when did you get shy about changing in front of me?" Dakota asked as I came out of the bathroom.

"What do you mean?" I chuckled, pretending not to know. Maybe it was since you stuck your tongue in my mouth.

"Never mind, lets hit the road." He got up from my bed.

"It's only 6." I said looking at my clock that sat on my night stand.

"Yeah..about that, the party is in the Platz." He gave me a half smile and scratched his head.

"The Platz!? That's almost an hour and a half away from here. You're joking right? How will we get there? Matter of fact, how will we get back?"

"Luka, you're overthinking this. We can bus it there and catch a ride with someone on the way back." He put his hands on my shoulders and smiled like he had just come up with the most brilliant plan in the world.

"Fine." I rubbed the bridge of my nose. I gave in once again.

"But if my mom finds out, it's on you." I said as I opened my window.

"Fine with me." He said as he climbed out first.

"And I sure as hell won't be dragging your ass back to the house for a second time, so if you pass out you're screwed." I chuckled and climbed out after him.

"This night is going to be great." Dakota said as we walked towards the bus stop.
