It's been a week since the last incident making Victoria officially hate my guts. Not that Mrs. Prevot pays any attention to her. It's also been a week since I decided to drop my shy act because that obviously wasn't fooling anyone. I just want to be left alone for the most part but I'm still polite and smile at everyone. I don't want to create more enemies.

I've been practicing every day after school at the studio. Jett is always practicing with me but we don't talk. I think he really is scared I'll share what I know. But I'm not like that, rumors destroy people and I dont want to be part of that. 

 Today's practice was more intimate due to the fact that we have to act now that we know the moves. We've been stuck in this part going over and over it again to the point where the heat of his hands on my waist feels almost permanent. Noticing we were finally executing the move correctly, I got bolder and more confident to play the girl in love with her prince. But that doesn't mean his touches went unnoticed.

I can feel the firmness of his grasp as he lifted me across the floor and put me down gently. My legs wrapped around his waist and we twirled around looking into each other's eyes. I couldn't help but admit those deep blue eyes of his held me captive. If it weren't for the fact that he is playing a role, I really would think he was interested in me. My feet touched the floor gently as I pirouette out of his arms only for him to pull me back and spin me in place. Going into an attitude, I lean into him once again gazing into those mesmerizing ocean pools. 

And we stayed there. Just looking at each other. The dance completely forgotten, out of breath. His hands on my waist. For a second too long. A second I don't mind. A second that feels like an eternity but is just a second.

"Good job." Said Mrs. Prevot clapping, pulling us out of our trance.

Remembering we had an audience, I pulled away feeling reluctant of Jett's hands. I turn to face Mrs. Prevot with a flush on my face that can easily be blamed by the dance and not what I just felt.

"Wow, that was intense. It actually looked like you two lovers have a connection. Are you dating perhaps?" she asked with a knowing smile

"No!" Yelled Jett, Victoria, and I.

"Actually Mrs. Prevot, I'm Jett's girlfriend." said Victoria. "That's why Jett and I would have been perfect for the prince and princess role. Because we do have a connection."

I had completely forgotten that Victoria was here. 

"Well Ms. Levil, the connection between Mr. Ryder and Ms. Nikks is stronger. When you were dancing with Mr. Ryder all I saw with was lust in your eyes, when Ms. Nikks is dancing with Mr. Ryder, there seems to be real emotion." Said Mrs. Prevot with a twinkle in her.

I couldn't help but blush at that comment.

"Oooooh. Burned." Said Teresa coming into the studio with no care in the world. "Nice one Mrs. P."

I turned to look at Teresa a little surprised because I haven't seen much of her lately. Her dance team is having competitions so they've been practicing non-stop.

"How many times have I told you girl, you can't just barge in here like that." Teresa just winked and Mrs. Prevot shook her head with a smile on here face. "Class is dismissed my little sugars." 

I took my shoes and put on some sweats over them and then made my way towards Teresa. 

"What are you doing here?" I asked giving her a hug

"Picking up my douchebag of a brother." She answered nodding towards Jett.

"Wait you two are related?" I asked incredulously.

"Unfortunately." she says with a dramatic sigh.

Well, that makes sense, they have the same eyes and both are very charismatic people. I guess the conversation never came up because I've never seen them around each other at school. 

"Do you need a ride?" Asked Teresa as we stepped out of the studio

"Oh no, it's ok. I could call my brother to come and pick me up." I tell her shaking my head.

"Don't bother. I'll take you." she insisted and took my duffle bag to prove her point.

"Oh, thanks. I'm not going to change so I'm ready." I said

"No problem we are just waiting for..."

"Did you scratch my car?" Asked Jett coming from behind me.

He was back to his old attire with his black leather jacket. He had a duffle bag on his shoulder where I presume his practice clothes are in. Whatever we just shared in that studio gone.

I made a beeline to the backseat as I pulled my phone out to text Ace.  

"Let me drive." I heard Jett saying from outside.

"No the car is mine for today." Replied Teresa.

With a huff, Jett got into the passenger seat and Teresa started the car.  Teresa chatted away about this new girl in her team while I notice Jett kept looking out the window. As if feeling my stare Jett turned to look at me and gave me one of his signature smirks.

 "So are you gonna see us practice, princess?" Asked Jett.

"Oh, you totally should. Your brother is there anyways." Said Teresa excitedly.

"You are in the band?" She nodded "What instrument?"

"Lead guitarist. I have many hidden talents just like you." she answered with a wink.

Everyone laughed except for me. One day I'll tell them.
