The Devil lives in my Attic [Part.8]

Start from the beginning

Jake notices and seems to clench his fists on the table. I disguise my delight over his jealousy and ask, "What do you guys want?"

"Pepperoni." they all say at once. Great a bunch of carnivores. I laugh.

"How about half cheese half pepperoni?" I ask. "I'm not a fan of pepperoni." I smile.

We all agree and call the waiter back over. We find out the waiters name is Tyler and I give him our order, he seems intent on ignoring everyone at the table but me so I have to, I tell him what everyone want s to drink and the pizza.

He smiles at me and walks off. Jake seems to visibly relax when he walks away. Which brings me back to what happened earlier in his room and how I got there. Before I can say anything to him though the order shows up and we all dig in.

We start talking about random things like school and sports and Zaydens' trip and such and for a while I completely forget that the guy sitting diagonally from me is the jerk I met at the door on my mother's wedding day not too long ago. We all relax for a while and then work our way onto the dance floor.

We mostly dance together in a circle but when a slow song comes on Jake asks me to dance with him so we split up. But I have no intention on dancing with him now that I've got him to myself. I pull him into a quiet corner.

"So why did you lie to me earlier?" I question.

He looks at me uncomfortably. " I uhhhh......." He start to play with the bottom of his shirt, avoiding my gaze.


"I wanted to ummm... you know... talk with you.... you know.... like alone." he looks me in the eye guiltily.

"You didn't have to lie to me you know. I have no problem talking with you." I say sympathetically.

"Yeah well it's just that your always with my sister and I didn't know if you were.. you know... like THAT"

I look at him in disbelief. He thought I was gay!!! "Oh no, no, no, no, NO. I'm most definitely NOT like THAT. Not that there's anything wrong with it, 'cause I mean Maggie is my best friend and all but NO."

He breaks out into a full grin, "That's good," he says relieved.

"Why's that good," I raise my eyebrows and ask teasingly?

He looks me straight in the eyes with a devilish smile on his face. "Because then it'd be awkward when I did this," he says and pushes me against the wall and leans down to kiss me, gently at first and then more passionately.

My mind goes blank for a second and then I start to kiss him back. I reach my arms around his neck and pull him closer. I start to run my hands through his curls when we're interrupted by someone clearing there throat behind him.

It's Tyler. "Excuse me, I have to get to the supplies in that closet behind you." he says to me with a smirk on his face. I blush and pull Jake away and we return to the dance floor to find Zayden and Maggie.

We find them back at the table munching on some pizza. We sit down and there's an awkward silence. Zayden looks at me and notices my disheveled hair and flushed cheeks and seems to look angry???


"Willow can I speak with you for a minute?" he asks through clenched teeth. He grabs my wrist and pulls, I get up dazedly and walk outside to the side of the building with Zayden practically dragging me.

I lean against the brick building waiting for him to stop pacing back and forth. I'm a little irritated at this point. He turns to me and puts one hand against the wall beside my head leaning towards me. "What were you and Jake doing?" he questions in a menacing voice.

I cross my arms. I'm a little unnerved by his close proximity.

He leans closer. "I asked you a question," he says tersely.

Anger washes over me for some reason. "I don't believe that's any of your business," I reply defiantly.

"Do you?" he smirks.

"Yeah, I do." I say with a smug grin.

"Well you're going to tell me anyway" he says putting his other hand on the other side of me to block my exit.

"Like hell I am," I reply venomously and duck under his arm and try to storm off but he catches my wrist, spins me around and pulls me to his chest. Before I know what's going on he presses his lips to mine roughly and has me pinned between the wall and him.............
