Alice's POV


My heart stopped. He'd incorporated my favorite things. The sun had set just perfectly, and the hearts made the whole thing so romantic. And pink roses. He remembered.

"I-I-I" I stuttered. I wasn't sure what to think.

Blake's smile dropped. "If you don't want me back Alice then-"

I covered the small space between us and planted my lips on his. He wrapped his hands in my hair, and I wrapped my legs around his waist.

It felt perfect, like we were made to go together.

"Alice, stop" he muttered, pulling away from me.

Red flushed my cheeks, and I looked at my feet. "I'm sorry" I whispered. "I don't know what overcame me."

He cupped his hands around my face. "Pulling away from you was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. But I want you to make sure this is what you want."

I looked into his eyes, they showed pain and regret. But also glowed with happiness.

"Let's take it slow" I found myself saying.


"I need time to figure things out. But one thing I know is I need you Blake. I've missed you so much."

I gave him one more peck on the lips before running inside, my heart pounding in my chest. I slid down the door and wrapped my arms around my chest. I couldn't erase the smile on my face.

"What are you so happy about" mom asked, with a smile on her face.

"I think I made the right choice mom. I think I'm finally going to be happy again."

"What happened" she asked, offering me her hand. She pulled me up and into her arms. I melted into her, and I felt my smile get larger, which I didn't even know was possible.

"I kissed Blake."

SHe pushed me away, concern on her face. "You what?"

My smile dropped. Why was she looking at me like I made a huge mistake?

"I-I-I kissed-"


"Because I love him."

She tilted her head to the side. "You love him?"

"Why are you looking at me like that?" My heart pounded in my chest. Did I make a mistake taking him back?

"You're sure this is the right decision?"

My palms began to sweat, and my stomach rolled. How did I screw up so bad?

"Alice, what's wrong?"

"Did I make the wrong decision? Oh God mom, what have I done?"

"You seemed pretty sure of your decision about thirty seconds ago."


"If you really love him Alice you'll know that this is the right decision. Why don't you go sleep on it? I'll take Spencer-duty tonight."

I slowly went upstairs and slipped into bed. Did I do the right thing?


Uh-oh. Told you this wouldn't be cliche :) What do you think Alice will do? Will she take Blake back or will she dump him again? Eep, guess you'll find out when I update again.

Next Update: Saturday. Or I might decide to update early if I feel nice. Like today :)
