Ha! I'm uploading on time! :D A first in a long while... :P Anyway, how were your breaks? I hope they were fun! Mine was too short but aren't they all? Unfortunately, it took me less than a day in school to get back to school mode :( I miss my vacation mode. I was a lot more chill. But at least now, I feel so much more active. This means that I can write more! Yay! :D Oh, I'm posting the improved version of this story tomorrow! I changed the title to Caught In The Middle. Please check it out! I made it so the story flows better. Also, there are less grammatical and punctuation errors :) I'm also posting songs I wrote over the break! Please tell me what you think of them! :) Anyway, please comment, vote, fan! >_<

Or maybe not. Maybe he just doesn't want to talk about his feelings. Isn't this what guys always claim? Maybe he's just too embarrassed to profess his undying love for me like in those romance novels.

"Let's just get this done and out of the way." He takes a deep breath.

I squeeze my eyes shut and silently pray he's preparing to say he loves me. I'll even settle for like,like. But inside, buried under all that hope, is a nagging feeling that he's going to say the opposite; that he's going to hurt me. The same feeling tells me to prepare myself for the onslaught of emotions. I tell it to shut up. I mean, for all I know, he won't be like that; he won't reject me.

"I have a girlfriend, Celene."

So? I thought he won't beat around the bush! What happened to being direct? But I don't say this out loud. Instead, I raise an eyeborw and tilt my head to the right. My own personnal silent way of saying, I don't give a crap.

"I know the both of you have this thing."

"Thing?! We hate each other's guts! She made my life miserable! She's still doing that! Life will be so much easier if she was gone."

Keith glances at me upon hearing this outburst.

I think I might have interchanged the two...

"Fine. You have a rivalry but she's my girlfriend and--"

I tune out. Why does he keep using the g-word? Is he obssessed with it the same way I'm obssessed with guns?

"Celene! Are you even listening to me?" He waves a hand in front of my face.

Whoa! How'd he get that close? I scoot over. Wait, why am I moving? Damn it, I can't move back! That'd be too obvious! Now he's going to think I don't want to be near him.

He moves closer and sits beside me. Good thing he's so dense. Not to mention cute. So, so cute. He has a body of a hot god. It's so unfair! Why does he go with Rosalind? He was mine first!

"As I was saying, I want you to get along with each other. Please try to get to know her." He begs.

"No." I answer without thinking. Believe me, even if I do, I'd get the same answer.

He frowns. "Why not?"

I'm trying to hold back. I really am doing the best I can but this whole thing is getting on my nerves.

"Why the hell do you expect me to be friendly with the bitch who, mind you, has done things you wouldn't even think of! She is my sworn enemy! And she will be till the end of time! Nothing you or anyone else do will change that!"

"Why are you so stubborn?!" He bursts.

"I'm stubborn?! Look at the mirror, you flaming hypocrite of a hobo!"

Finally, Celene makes a stand :D Keith really is an idiot, isn't he? Or is he? ;) You won't know until the next chapter! Stay tuned! Please comment, vote, fan!
