Even though Dash and I had reconciled for the most part, there were still a few things nagging my mind and I really wanted to discuss them with him. I needed answers to my questions before I could start fresh with him.

One of the things that was constantly weighing on my mind was the fact that did Ben know that Lauren killed Janice? I mean, Dash and him were best friends which meant that Ben should know who was responsible for the death of his girlfriend. I decided to confront Dash about this the next time I saw him, which would be in less than an hour as we had our first class together.

"So, are you and Dash back together? Like together, together?" Tracey asked as she brushed her hair.

"I think so. I mean, we talked things out and I decided to give him a second chance. So, I guess we are back together, " I answered, as I looked at my reflection in the mirror, hoping that my face was not marred by the presence of an ugly pimple. The Winter Formal was day after tomorrow and I did not want to go with a pimple as a chaperone!

"So...does that mean you are happy with him?" She questioned, gathering her hair to form a ponytail.

"There are still a few things we need to work on. But for the most part...yes, I guess I am happy with him." I paused, letting my words sink in. "Tracey, I like Dash, a lot. He...he is my first boyfriend and I don't think I will ever be able to forget him. Is that normal?"

"Even an idiot knows that you can never forget your first love, " she said.

"Love?" Did I love Dash? I wanted to slap myself after that question. Of course I loved him, it was obvious. My feelings for Dash were strong and permanent, by the looks of it, which meant that I did love him.

"You do love him, right?" Tracey arched an eyebrow, which I could see clearly through the mirror.

"Of course I do. I love his blue eyes. I love when he smiles at me. And I really love his kisses." I nodded. "So yes, I do love him."

Tracey shrugged, as if me falling in love with the trouble maker of Burswick Academy was something that happened on a regular basis. "Well then there you go."

"Yeah, I guess." I smiled as I thought about Dash and the fact that I loved him.

"And I know that he loves you, too. I mean, the guy who can have any girl he wants chose to be with you despite everything that happened says a lot, " she replied.

In that moment I wanted to tell my best friend everything that led to Dash and I breaking up. But Dash had told me to keep it a secret and I had no choice but to comply with this wishes, because we needed to protect Lauren. And I needed to be friends with Lauren. She was all alone in this cruel world only because she was different. It wasn't her fault that she was born with an illness, so why did people blame her?

"Thanks Tracey. I'm glad you think so." I told her, glancing at the clock to see how much longer I had to wait before I saw Dash.

"But, I just want you to know that I don't trust Dash and will forever be suspicious of him. You have my approval regarding him but I will keep an eye on the both of you—especially him—to make sure that you both are happy. If he dares to hurt you a second time then I will chop him into tiny pieces and have the academy chef serve him for dinner, " she stated just as there was a knock on the door.

I rolled my eyes at her before heading over to open the door. "I'll get it." I opened the door to see Dash standing with a box of chocolates in his hands. My jaw dropped when I ran my eyes over him; this was the first time I'd seen him dressed properly in the school uniform. His shirt was buttoned and tucked neatly in his pants, and his tie was in the most perfect of knots. His hair was styled and not looked like he'd run his fingers through it a billion times.

"Wow." Was all I could manage to say. The bad boy of Burswick was dressed like the golden boy of the academy and I couldn't be more shocked.

"You like?" He fla

e I would've died of panic.

"We had to. It's not like we planned the entire murder; things happened and we had to try our best to deal with it, " he justified.

"I understand." I placed my hand over his and gave him a reassuring smile, letting him know that I understood and believed him even if nobody else did. I was going to keep his secret because that was the right thing to do. Who knows how much Dash and Lauren had to suffer because of the things that were beyond their control and I would not let them suffer anymore.

"Thank you, chocolate chip. I care about you, and I like you a lot. And I know Lauren will like you as well once she gets to know you. I want you with me. I don't care if the world turns their back on me, as long as I have you, I'm happy." His statement had tears blurring my vision, which I had to force back because I did not want to embarrass myself by crying in front of the entire class.

"Stop saying such things, it's not the right time or place, " I scolded, blinking rapidly to clear my vision of the stupid tears.

Dash chuckled before stealing a quick kiss. Cheater! "Don't cry at the Winter Formal, you will ruin your make up."

"I won't wear make up in that case." I decided. Make up was one hassle I did not want to go through.

"Oh good. I do not want my girlfriend looking like a clown." As soon as he finished speaking, Damien entered the classroom, causing Dash to scowl at him. "Why is he still alive?"

"What is your problem with Damien? We are no longer together, you can stop hating him, " I stated, watching Damien take his seat.

"I will never stop hating him, " Dash said, glaring at his arch enemy.

"Why not? Stop holding a grudge against him, " I snapped.

"I won't. He tried to take you away from me. He thought he could have you when it's clear that you are my girlfriend. I will hate him until we graduate and I no longer have to see his face everyday. Maybe I'll continue to hate him even after we graduate, " he replied.

I rolled my eyes. "You are crazy, Dash Melwin. Stop being so crazy or else I will tell your great-uncle and get you in trouble."

"You can't do that!" He scoffed.

I chuckled. "Of course I can. Don't you remember...

"I am the one handing out the ten semesters."
