"Hey!" Gemma said with a gummy smile and a small wave of the hand.

"What's up?" I asked her as I stepped out before closing the front door behind me.

"Homecoming, that's what."

"Okay." I said, wondering where she was going with the subject.

"And I just wanted to know.." She trailed off, averting her gaze from mine.


"If it would be okay if I went with Michael?"

I chuckled, more to myself, before patting her on the top of her head. "Gemma, you didn't even have to ask."

"I just didn't want things to be awkward if I showed up with him, you know?" She said as she looked up at me.

"Yeah, I get it." I said as I nodded.

"Great then!" She said with a smile and a turn of the heel.

"Wait, Gemma! You came all the way to my house to tell me that?"

"What kind of friend would I be if I hadn't?"

"Anyway, nice battle scar." She said with a grin motioning to my scratched nose before winking and turning to leave. I chuckled as I shook my head in disbelief. It had become more clear to me just how much Gemma had taken my feelings into account, part of me felt actually kind of bad for turning her down. Or maybe it was because it had always been Dakota and I, and I wasn't used to having other friends that cared so much about me the way Gemma did.

Did this mean that Gemma liked Michael?

By Monday morning, word had spread that the Titans showed up at the party, a fight broke out and I ended up getting my ass kicked along with Dakota and Michael. Small town, equals, word travels fast, was it the correct words? No, it never was.

But freshman year would eventually come to an end and that meant I wouldn't have to deal with the ridiculous gossip spread by brainless sheep until the next school year, it also meant that homecoming flyers were posted every where in the halls, there was no escaping them. I stared at one of the baby blue posters hung up near my locker, Enchantment Under The Sea written in cursive gold letters across the top of it. It was staring me straight in the face, mocking me, tempting me to go, knowing full and well that I wouldn't.

"Wanna be my date?" Dakota whispered in my ear as he snuck up behind me.

"I thought you'd never ask." I said with a smirk as I turned around.

"I'm serious." Dakota said, leaning against my locker, staring at my lips and making me nervous.

"I don't know." I shrugged as I grabbed my textbooks.

"It'll be fun." He said teasingly. I half smiled, shrugging again. I had no reason to be nervous about th

me knew she more than likely missed having him around.

"See you guys there." Michael said with a smile as he walked away.

"See ya." Dakota and I said in unison, waving him off.

"Lets hit the road." Dakota said, grabbing his bag and swinging it over his shoulder.

It seemed days were getting shorter now as the sun set on our walk home, our hands hand in hand with each other as they swung back and forth between us.

A slight cold breeze drifted in the air as we came to a stop on the side of my house, staying out of sight from our parents. Dakota looked at our interlocked hands before looking up at me, earnestly. I knew there was something he wanted to say as I searched his eyes.

"I'm right across the street." I said with a smile.

"I wish I hadn't thrown that stupid wine bottle in the first place, I'd still be allowed over." He mumbled as he looked down at his own feet.

"It'll all blow over soon, try apologizing." I suggested.

"Like that'll help."

"Hey, in her eyes, you're probably still a saint." I said with a chuckle as I cupped the side of his face. He shrugged before pulling me into an amorous hug, squeezing tightly as if scared he wouldn't see me again. I wrapped my arms around him and gave him a reassuring hug, before kissing the side of his face.

"Now we're even."

"We're not at school, that doesn't count." He said with a smirk before walking away. I sighed as I walked back around to the front of my house, looking up at the front door and turning the knob.

It wasn't enough seeing each other at school but for now, it was all we could do.
