I giggled a little. "Brian, you'll live, you drama queen."
He set me down and smiled at me. "I'll seriously miss you, though."
I smiled. "I'll miss you too, Brian. I'll see you in a week." I said loudly, smacking him on the butt. He turned around and looked at me wildly.
"I'll get you for that, woman." he said, slamming the door shut. I shrugged and turned to Matt, who was already pulling me into a hug, the atmosphere changing from being funny to a more serious note as soon as we touched.
For a moment we didn't say anything, we just stood there in each others embrace, coming to terms that we would be separated for another week.
"Skype whenever you want, even if it's during a concert. I'll stop it and talk to you." Matt said, his face buried in my hair. I laughed a little.
"Good God, Matt, it's a week. Chill. And yes, I do want to Skype." I replied.
He pulled away and shrugged. "It's only true. I'll see you in a week, Anna. Merry early Christmas." he said. And with that, he walked out the door, leaving me and Zacky.
He stood there looking at me, his black hair falling perfectly around his face and framing his shining green eyes and lip piercing. He had his hands stuffed into the pockets of his jeans, staying quiet, just as he was when everyone first walked inside.
"And I think I'll miss you the most, Scarecrow." I said, quoting The Wizard of Oz, trying to get a laugh out of Zacky. He remained standing there, looking at me.
"Uh, okay." I muttered, walking over to him, looking at him in the eyes, which followed every move I made with a clouded look.
"How come you've been so quiet tonight?"
He pressed his lips together and looked away, as if he were in deep thought. I waited for him to say something, but the only sound in the room was the air conditioning unit turning on. I sighed and walked over to a random dinner chair and picked up my black coat from it, putting it on.
I walked back over to him and put a hand on my hip, becoming quite annoyed that he was staying silent.
"I'm leaving you guys for a week even though we JUST got reunited, missing Christmas, and you're going to give me the silent treatment? That hurts, Zack." I said, using his shorter name, meaning that I was completely serious. I knew I'd get an answer out of him that way, and I was right.
His eyes whipped back up to me, looking straight in them, sending chills down my spine.
He suddenly unfroze and closed the gap between us, becoming a mere three inches from my face. His lips were parted, his breath entering my nose. I felt myself fill with butterflies, but I also filled with confusion. He wasn't even saying anything and now he's right in front of me?
"Zacky..." I whispered, wondering what he was doing. He didn't move, just stayed there, three inches from my face.
He shook his head a little and rested his forehead on mine. I stayed frozen in place, wondering what he was doing. Sure, we've had our fair shares of hugs and falling asleep on each other in the past and present, but it never escalated to this.
"Zacky, let's go! Anna has to catch the bus!" Matt called from the hallway, making me burst out of my thoughts. I heard his heavy footsteps march away down the hall until there was silence.
I sighed, looking up and meeting Zacky's eyes. "Zacky, I have to-"
He shut me up by gently pressing his lips to mine, placing his hands on my hips and bringing me closer to him, spreading a tingly, fire feeling throughout my lips and my hips and making my stomach turn upside down.
It was a soft kiss, his lips were warm, but his lip ring contrasted the warmth with its coldness, making me shiver. I felt like I was in a bubble of euphoria, my own perfect little world. I felt weightless for the three seconds that the kiss lasted.
Although it felt like he kissed me for hours, he pulled away almost as soon as he first leaned in. I didn't have a chance to react to it; I was in so much surprise and shock that I was frozen.
He rested his forehead on mine again, slowly exhaling. "I'll see you in a week, Anna." he said softly, removing his hands from my hips and walked out the door, which quietly clicked shut, leaving me alone.
I was speechless. Moveless. I didn't know what to do or what to say or what to think. So, I stood there in the middle of the room, frozen from my kiss with Zacky.
Zacky kissed me.
But I didn't kiss back.
Oh my God, he must think I hate him. I can't let him go an entire week thinking that, he's one of my best friends!
