Recap of Chapter 12:
"I'm bored. Let's play hide and seek." Danny spoke up breaking the awkward barrier.
"Isn't that a game for like... I don't know... 5 year olds?" Carson looked him as if he was stupid.
"I'm cool with it." I said.
"I'll be it then." Danny said.
"1... 2... 3..." I ran upstairs and ran to the closet. I felt a hand snake around my waist.
I was about to scream until I felt something warm on mine. They were lips. And I could tell it wasn't Alec's. But Zander's. I let got of the kiss. Confused and shocked.
"I finally got that out of my system." Zander said relieved.
"Wait. What?" I'm clueless.
"You see, Venus. I'm growing feelings for you. I.... like you...." He mumbled with a slight blush.
My eyes widened. No no no no. This can't be happening right now. Now I'm in a twilight situation. Maybe even Vampire Diaries or something. Hold up! This is no time to be comparing!!
"Hold up, Zander. What the hell?" I said incredulously. He brushed a bit of hair from by face behind my ear.
"I'm serious." He whispered. I felt butterflies build up. Similar to when Alec is around but not as strong. Like a small movement. I then felt his lips on mine once again. Always soft and delicate like he was scared to break me. But this time, I kinda liked it. A lot. Like..... a lot lot.
I felt myself get closer. Our kiss getting deeper and deeper.
Oh my freaking God. I'm such a two-timing bitch. I pulled away.
"What's wrong?" Zander said kissing my cheek and neck. I stepped away from him.
"I'm sorry. I can't do this."
He looked hurt. I felt bad. But my feelings for Alec are strong and feel as if I'm cheating on him even though we're not even dating.
"I could give you more than he'll ever give you." He said kissing mu hand hopefully. I shook my head.
"No. This isn't right for me. I'm really sorry."
He let out a long sigh.
"I should be sorry. It's just that you're a great girl and any guy would kill to have you. And any guy would be lucky to have you. I guess I'm not that 'lucky guy'." He apologized truthfully.
I hugged him and gave him a kiss on the cheek.
"Thanks. That's sweet. Any girl would like to be with a guy like you."
He chuckled. Then there was a short silence.
"Maybe we should tell Alec." Zander spoke, breaking the ice.
"I think I should do it." I said.
"One hundred percent." More like eighty.
"Mmmhmm.... Then how come you look terrified?"
I haven't even notice my own expressions.
"Well let's go. It's been 10 minutes." Zander said opening the door. 10 minutes?!?!
I practically speed walk down the stairs. I see the rest of the guys sitting there. Danny and Carson smiling and wiggling their eyebrows. Alec was just staring at the ground. His eyes burning a hole through the floor.
"Ummm... How come nobody found us?" Zander asked.
"I got lazy." Danny smiled.
Zander nudged me. Alright, dude. Chill. I need time.
"Err... Alec can I talk to you? Alone...." I said awkwardly. I met his eyes and yet again they were emotionless.
He then slowly got up and I led him upstairs.
I stopped at the middle of the hallway.
"Okay. How do I start this...." I mumbled to myself. I took a long breath in. Stress.....
"Everything's not true." I say closing my eyes for a moment. I looked back at him He looked confused.
"What do you mean 'Everything's not true'?"
"The Zander and Me thing. I did it..... to make you jealous....."
Different emotions appeared on his face. Hurt, depressed, sad, relief, happy, and finally..... Anger.
"So you played with my feelings?" He said angrily.
"Not intentionally." I defended.
"How could you think that? 'Not intentionally'? Didn't you think I have feelings too?" He was furious.
"How did you think I felt?!?" I yelled at him.
"What did I do?!?"
"You went ahead and got together with that bitch named Victoria!!!"
His eyebrow curved in confusion before realization hit him.
"We're not together."
"What the hell does that mean? You two were practically jumping each other."
"But it didn't mean anything!"
I was angrier and hurt by the second. What I said next was surprising to even myself.
"I hate you." I said before tears fell. Like the very first drops of a rainstorm. I felt myself being lightly pushed onto the wall.
