Chapter 28

10 1 0

As the movie still plays I can feel eyes on me. I look around and find JC watching me more than he's watching the movie. He notices me look at him and smiles.

I give him a small smile then continue watching the movie but JC just keeps staring at me.

I start to feel a little uneasy and get up and walk to the bathroom upstairs. I just needed to get away for a little bit. I'm worried that JC will try to pull something slick and then it would just ruin everything. I feel queasy so I put the toilet lid down and sit on it with my head in my hands and take a deep breath.

I sit for almost 2 minutes when I hear someone coming up the stairs. I quickly get up and wash my hands so that it sounds like I was actually using the bathroom not just hiding. Just as I open the door Shawn goes to knock on it.

"Hey are you ok?" He asks "you got up really quick and you didn't seem ok"

"Oh yeah I'm fine just a little tired that's all"

"Okay, you coming back down now?"

"Yepp" I fake a smile

We start to walk down the hallway back to the stairs. Shawn grabs my hand and interlocks our fingers. The sudden movement took me by surprise but I didn't mind it.

Just as we get down stairs and sit back down the movie ends and the credits start playing.

"Great movie" Kian says standing up

"What should we do now" Matt asks

"Let's go blast some music and eat junk food"  I suggest

"Hell yeah" Nash says jumping up from his spot on the floor

Johnson plugs in his music and turns it up. I walk to the kitchen to grab some cold pizza and I sit up on the counter. JC comes in the kitchen and gets a bottled water. He walks over near me and sets the bottle down.

"So you and Shawn. Are you two a thing?" He asks

"Umm" I swallow my bite of pizza " I don't know. Why?"

"Just asking" he says moving closer to me. I watch him intently as he inches closer. "Making sure I'm not crossing the line on something that's his" he eyes me

"How would you be crossing the line?" I ask nervously

He puts one hand on my thigh and immediately I know what he means by that. I'm shocked and I want to move but I stay frozen. When you've had a crush on someone for as long as I have on him, you get that kind of reaction. The whole time I just keep thinking where is Cameron? And why hasn't he stopped JC?

I compose myself and speak up. "What are you doing?"

He bites his lip. "Thinking"

I don't bother to ask about what because I already know what his answer would be.

Almost as if on que, Zy walks into the kitchen for a soda. She stops when she sees JC and I and she starts to turn but before she does I mouth "help".
I've gotten myself into a situation that I really don't know how to get out of.

"Hey JC I think Kian was just looking for you" Zy says. Earning his attention and taking it off of me.

"Now?" He asks

"Yeah I'm pretty sure" she lies

He takes his hand off of me and walks out of the kitchen. I take a really deep breath and get off the counter. "Thank you" I say "you looked like you needed help" she replies "isn't that the guy you've had a crush on for like almost 3 years?"
