I woke up the next morning feeling amazing. All I could think and dream about was that kiss and how amazing it was. Then it dawned on me. I said last night that I would talk to him, but I don't want it to ruin anything that happened last night. I don't want him to think it was a mistake and a spur of the moment type of thing.
"Have you started packing yet?" Henley asked walking out of the bathroom already dressed for the day. Today we had to make our way to New Orleans for our next show.
"I started, I haven't finished though." I answered. "Is it weird that I feel like my load doubled while we were here?"
"I have no idea, mine is the same way though. We didn't buy anything though." Henley said with a small laugh.
After half an hour filled with sitting on eachother's suitcases, we finally got them to close and started going downstairs to grab some breakfast.
"Oh my..." I heard Henley say.
I looked up and saw a bunch of men in black suits and the guys chillin with their hands up...well Merritt was doing peace signs, but they were up.
"Does anyone want to give us a hand with our bags?" I said smirking. If they were going to escort us out and waste our time when we were supposed to get to Louisiana, then they're going to carry our stuff.
It only took about 20 minutes to get to wherever it was they were taking us to. They had split us up, I was with Danny and Henley in one car and Jack was with Merritt in the other.
"Sir, sir!" A man yelled as we were getting out of the car.
"What!" He yelled back obviously annoyed. I saw an amused smirk on Merritt's face, so I'm guessing he did a couple mind tricks on him.
"Agent Rhodes is here, and he seems pissed." He said in a bit of a worried tone.
"When is Rhodes not pissed?" He responded walking into the building with his little henchmen leading us in after him.
As soon as we got inside they started spliting each of us into separate rooms so they could talk to us individually. Soon it was down to just me and Jack that had to be seated and cuffed.
"What's wrong with this room?" The dude in charge, who's name I learned was Agent Fuller, pointed to a dark room.
"The electricity in that room went out earlier and we haven't been able to fix it" He responded with a shrug that either said they tried everything to find out what was wrong, or they were too lazy to attempt to fix it.
"Fine," Fuller said rubbing his temples. "Just...put them both in that room. We'll start with that Atlas boy."
Did I just hear correctly? They're going to put me in the same room as Jack? This might be my only chance of being able to talk to him alone.
We were seated in the room on the same side of the table with both of us cuffed to the center of the table.
"Well...this is a great way to spend a morning in Vegas." Jack said breaking the silence that we had been sitting in for what felt like forever, but was really only a couple seconds.
"Jack...I-We" I corrected "need to talk"
He looked at me.
"about last night." I finished.
"I know." He said in a tone that sounded like he knew what was coming.
"Last night was, probably one of the greatest nights ever." I said getting straight to the point.
"But," I continued. I needed to get everything out before he said anything only because I had a lot on my mind. "We need to figure out what it meant. I-" I had to take a deep breath before continuing knowing that what I was about to say could either make our relationship better and get it rolling, or it could ruin every chance I ever had.
"-I love being with you. I love talking with you. I love that little smirk you do. I love your laugh. I love that little stuffed bunny that you gave me that week that we met. I love your confidence both on and off stage. I loved that kiss last night, and" Here it goes. "I love you." I can't believe I just said that. I couldn't even look at his face. "Every time I'm with you, it's just so easy to talk and be myself. And as stupid and cheesy as that might sound, it's true. I don't know how you feel about whatever it is going on between us, but if you don't, I just-"
"Stop." I heard him say which made me nervous.
I looked up at him to find him staring right back at me.
"Alyssa. Everything you said...I feel the same exact way."
As soon as he said that I felt like I couldn't breathe. Did he really feel the same way?
"When I first met you, I thought you were one of the most beautiful girls I had ever seen. Then I got to meet you and learn about how amazing and smart you are. Every day I fall for you more, but I didn't want to come off as unprofessional, so I kept my feelings to myself. What happened last night was amazing and I don't regret any second of it."
He took one of my cuffed hands into his and continued.
"I'm up to being with you and keeping it a secret from Arthur and everyone else if you are."
"I'm willing to do that." I softly said smiling at him.
He was about to say something when Agent Fuller came in.
"You guys are free to go." He said while unlocking our cuffs.
"Wait what?" I asked confused.
"Don't you have to question us or something?" Jack asked equally confused.
"After the interrogation with your smartass brother, I think we're done for today." He said looking at me.
I had no idea what happened in Danny's room, but I wasn't complaining.
As we walked out the building, there were two cars already waiting with our stuff to take us to the airport.
We had to split up, so I went with Danny in one car, and Jack went into the other car with Henley and Merritt.
"Well that was fun." Danny said sarcastically. "That's about half an hour that I'm never gonna get back."
I barely heard what he was saying. I just kept replaying every word that Jack said to me. We're together...well, kinda. We're not allowed to tell anyone otherwise we could get in big trouble. At this point though, I really don't care. We put everything out on the table and realized that our feelings were more than mutual.
A/N Ok so I really hope you like this one!! It was probably one of the easier chapters that I've written mainly because I entered my romantic/cheesy state of mind lol.
Ok so with the new face for Alyssa, it's between Jennifer Lawrence and Lily Collins. I'm not 100% looking for someone who looks like Daniel, I'm just looking for someone who I can picture in the role. Alyssa spaces out a lot and is sarcastic. Let me know what you think!!
