Abby's P.O.V

Of course Scott's brother just had to go and lock us in this room together. Of course Anna's phone would go straight to voicemail as soon as I try calling her. Of course it would start thunder storming. Of course the power would go out. Of course I'm slightly terrified of thunderstorms.

Of course.

"The backup generators should be working in a little bit, " Scott says from wherever he's sitting on the floor. I hear him stumbling around a little before a stream of light suddenly comes from where I see him now standing across the room.

I don't answer him and he sighs before setting the flashlight on the desk so that the light is pointing upward at the ceiling. He walks over towards the bed and slowly sits beside me.

"What're are y-you d-doing?" I ask him once he's completely sat down next to me.

"Well my ass hurts from the floor, " he says as he gently rubs his rear end. "And I know you're scared of thunderstorms Abby. I figured I would offer my assistance."

"I'm n-not scared, " I mumble under my breath.


There's a long silence between the two of us and the only sound that can be heard in the room is the rain hitting the roof. I flinch a little bit when I see lightning flash through the window, it's even creepier when the power is out.

"Abby..." I look up when I hear Scott's voice. His face is extremely close to mine and I can't help but gasp as soon as I lock eyes with him. "We need to talk about it."

I turn my head away from him because I know he's right but I don't really want to talk about the whole him cheating thing. Just thinking about it makes me sad. But what else are we going to do while we're locked in this room? I can't very well avoid this conversation forever.

"You have to believe me Abs, " he says looking up at me from underneath his eyelashes. "I swear I didn't kiss her, she kissed me. I barely even remember it really, I was completely shit faced. I do remember pushing her away though. I pushed her away.."

I look at Scott and tilt my head at him. I do remember him telling me that she had kissed him a

I seriously don't know what to think or say or do. Every part of me knows that I should probably react to what he just said but I literally can't. After a while of me not talking Scott starts talking again.

"Well I m-mean you d-don't have to say it back or anything.." he says stuttering a little bit as he tries to feel the uncomfortable silence. "I-I just thought you should know...I mean you can take your time. I mean unless you just don't like me at all anymore, in which case would make this whole being locked in a room for twelve hours even more awkwa-"

Before he can continue to talk nonsense I slide my hand, which is still pressed against his chest, towards his neck and pull him downwards until his lips press against mine.

How can one part of the body have so many nerve endings.

This kiss feels different than the others we've shared. This one feels a lot more like confirmation. And as Scott Rogers moves his lips against mine I realize that even though I didn't say it and even though I've ignore him for what seems like forever I think I might be in love with him too. Because if it weren't love, what explanation is there for how amazing his lips feel against mine? Or how when he starts to smile into the kiss I end up smiling too and we just end up pulling away and grinning at each other.

But the sparks are still there, even when we're just smiling at each other.
