Our lips were getting closer and closer to each other until I remembered about the pact I made with my brothers. Once she realized I stopped leaning in she gave me a confused and sad look. I guess she also wanted that kiss to happen, but I couldn't break a promise.
"What happen?" She asked.
"I-we can't kiss."
"Um... yea we can't it would totally be wrong because I dated one of your brothers 3 years ago."
"Don't worry about it Nick this was going to be a stupid mistake and it didn't happen because you stopped it, and I'm glad you did because we would have regretted that kiss." I know I wouldn't have regretted that kiss even though it would have been wrong. "Um... I uh... have to go it's getting late. See you some other day."
With that the girl of my dreams left. I just stood there in the dance floor looking at her walk away. I knew I should have gone after her, but I didn't and I hate myself for not doing what my heart was telling me to do.
I walked to my seat and sat there for what seemed forever.
"Hey man." Joe said.
"Oh hey Joe."
"What's up with you? You've been here in your seat looking like a... idi-"
"Are you sure you want to finish that sentence bro." I said giving him an attitude.
"Why are you mad at me? What did I do to you?"
"What did you do?" He nodded. "What you did was ruin my love life."
"And how did I do that?"
"You dated the girl I love!" He gave me a confused look. "Demi!"
"Demi? You never told me you were in love with her."
"Would it have made a difference if I had told you I liked her!" By now I was raising my voice. Everybody around us was looking at us.
"Dude lower your voice down. We don't need anyone getting into this conversation."
"Well then let's take this conversation else where."
"Alright then. Meet me outside in a few." With that he walked away from me.
I didn't want to go outside to talk to him or do anything that didn't involve Demi. I just wanted to be with her. I walked outside and found the nearest bench. I sat down on it and waited for Joe to come out.
After what seemed forever Joe came out but with Kevin... great?
"What's Kevin doing here?" I asked Joe.
"Well since that one pact we did was also with Kevin then I thought that we should include him into this conversation."
"What? This isn't about the pact." Joe gave me a serious face, I can't lie to him. "Alright then... so were do we start?" I asked.
"How about you tell us what happened that made you mad with Joseph?" Kevin said.
"Um... well as you guys know I'm in love with Demi." The both of them nodded. "Well when Demi came here to the reception we were dancing and then out of the nowhere we almost... almostkissedbutIstoppeditbeforeourlipstouchedjustbecauseIrememberedourpact!" I said fast.
"Oh so that was the problem." Kevin said and I nodded and Joe gave me a confused look. I guess he didn't understand me but Kevin did. "Well I think it's safe to say that pact is now broken." I gave him a confused look while Joe still had that confused look he had a minute ago. "Well Joe and I had a little talk before we came out here and well we agreed that we would forget about that pact we did years ago because... well 2/3's of us are married and it's not fair that were happy when 1/3 of us isn't. So if Demi is your happiness then go get her."
"You guys mean it?"
"Yes we do." Kevin said.
"Wait before you guys separate tell me what the ponies are you guys saying." Joe said.
"Oh great we lost him in the conversation." Kevin said. While we both laughed at Joe.
After five minutes of explaining Joe what had happened, he finally got caught up.
"So Joe you are fine with me and Demi dating?" I asked.
Joe looked straight ahead and then turned to Kevin nudging him in his side. Now I was the confused one.
"Of course I'm fine with you and Demi dating!" He said screaming. "BUT! First telling what you feel when you see her because I already know that you LOVE her!"
"What I feel when I see Demi? Um... well when I see her I feel these butterflies in my stomach and when I touch her I feel this spark and I shiver at her touch. I don't know if that's what you call love but that's what I call it because I have never felt any of that with any other girl other than her."
After I said that Joe patted Kevin on the shoulder and they both turned around and left back to the party leaving me standing there alone and confused. Why did they leave me here by myself? When I was about to go back and join the party I felt a hand on my shoulder. I'm so scared.
