As I predicted it was an hour and half ride there, all the while I was praying my mom wouldn't find out that we were gone and I'd turn around to see her chasing after the bus. The Platz was a whole other country, well it might as well had been. I myself have lived here once and although the houses are big and the scenery is nice, the people are rude.

I'm not talking, don't even look in my direction rude, I'm talking, will judge you for not having a maid rude. We had to move on the account that our rakes were mysteriously disappearing and- reappearing into the neighbors yard. That and my mom couldn't stand being so far from Mrs.Moreau. I was surprised we didn't move back after my dad earned a promotion.

"Dakota! You made it." One of the seniors on our team came up to us just as we got inside the huge boulder of a house. The same guy from the first party we went to. I'm assuming they're friends now by some sort of party rights passage.

"Luka De Angelis, right?" He looked over at me.


"Fast legs, I'm Alex by the way." He grinned and handed us two red solo cups. I hesitantly took it from his hand, I didn't want to offend him by declining and get the shit kicked out of me but I honestly didn't feel like drinking something that reminded me of vomit.

I was cautious with the seniors, although I did have some muscle, I didn't want to get into some scuffle and get kicked off the team. Besides, half of the seniors looked like they were on steroids and the other half looked like they were old dudes pretending to be seniors, would you want to pick a fight with someone like that? Okay, maybe I was just scared.

Dakota almost immediately downed his first drink and was now onto his second.

"Easy." I said to him as we explored the house. It was a maze and had to have been ten times the size of my house but it was still packed with freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. The back yard was something else. It was a whole other world, with a giant pool, deck and hot tub. I enjoyed the pink flamingo lawn ornaments.

"I can hold my liquor." He chuckled.


"Luka! Hey!" I could hear a faint voice over the loud pop music.

I turned around to find Gemma waking towards me in a one piece bathing suit, dripping wet. I tried not to stare and focused on her eyes.

"Hey, Gemma." I smiled at her.

"Didn't expect to see you here tonight." She grinned at me.

"Yeah it was kind of last minute." I glared at Dakota who in turn grinned at me.

"Your name's Dakota right?"

"Yes ma'am. Hey I'm gonna hang out with Alex while you two catch up." He patted my back and disappeared into the crowd.

"Wait-" I mumbled.

"You should come in the pool with me, my friends want to meet you." She grabbed my hand and I wanted to immediately pull away. I looked over at Dakota and he was already all over some blondy. I rolled my eyes at the sight of them.

"Sure." I smiled at her and walked out back which was just as filled with people as it was ins

it's a beautiful night."

I grinned and hopped on. I enjoyed the ride there, resting my head against Dakotas still shirtless back and feeling the light breeze against my skin. It was quiet and beautiful. It felt like a ghost town with just the two of us there. I closed my eyes, maybe it's because I'm drunk. I chuckled to myself.

The sky was changing into a blue haze as we arrived at my house. Dakota left the bicycle behind my dads shed where I knew he wouldn't look.

We did the usual routine of climbing into my room through the window with as little sound as possible. Dakota fell on the floor, misplacing his feet as he got in. I chuckled and climbed in after him.

"Sorry for punching you in the face. I drank too much." Dakota said as we lay in my bed, once again not bothering to take out the extra bed for him. Just like that night.

"Me too."

"At least this time I didn't pass out." He chuckled. I closed my eyes, ignoring the fact that my room was spinning.

"I-I remember." Dakota said after what I thought was a finished conversation.

"Remember what?" I asked when I already knew the answer. A little bit of me hoped maybe it might be something else.

"That night, we kissed." He said barely even making a sound, as if my parents would hear from all the way upstairs. I opened my mouth to speak but no words came out. What am I supposed to say?

Dakota turned on his side to face me, the smeared lipstick was still on him. He reached out towards me and gently touched my bottom lip with his index finger.

"We're best friends remember?" I said as he cupped my face. His hazel eyes were gazing into me and it's like I was seeing him for the first time. Truly seeing him as someone else who wasn't my best friend and it sent tingles through out me. His gaze stayed fixed on me, probably wanting me to say something or do something.

But I didn't say anything. I only pecked his cheek and turned over, not feeling up to having this conversation while intoxicated.
