Sneaking out to see Justin - whom she had spent all these years trying to get over and forget about - was quite blatantly a bad idea.

It was way too risky, and she honestly had no idea if it’d even be worth it.

Who knew what the consequences could be?

She knew she shouldn’t do it. 

She knew it was a bad idea that she’d most likely regret.

But as she laid there and continued to think about it, she couldn’t help but notice the small inkling of curiosity that she was feeling towards it.

Seeing Justin again had been emotional; though it had brought back all of those painful memories of what he’d done to her and what he’d put her through, it had also brought back all of the wonderful memories of their good times together - the things they’d experienced, the places they’d gone, the laughs they’d had, the way he’d treated her like a princess...

He’d been, as she once told him, her best friend.

Not only that, he’d been her first and only true love.

And it was obvious as she sat there and reflected back on all of those memories, both good and bad, that the good far outweighed the bad.

Perhaps it was because of all of these reminders of this happier time in her life that made her slightly curious to talk to him some more and see him in private. She didn’t want to risk anything with Shaun, but she couldn’t help but wonder what Justin wanted to talk about.

She couldn’t help but wonder how he was feeling now...

It was all a very bad idea, but maybe that was what made the concept so incredibly alluring.

‘I must be out of my mind.’ Allie thought as she pushed the covers off of her and sat up.

Slowly and gently, checking as she did so to make sure Shaun was still asleep, she swung her legs over the side of the bed and gently placed her feet on the ground. 

At that precise moment, Shaun shifted in his sleep, letting out a small groan as he did so.

Allie instantly froze, her eyes wide and her heart pounding against her ribcage.

When it became clear that Shaun was still asleep, however, Allie instantly felt her body relax.

With the faintest traces of adrenaline ebbing away in her body, Allie slowly put her weight on her feet, standing up off of the bed and being careful not to let it creak.

She shot a quick glance at the clock, seeing that it was now 12:57.

She was going to be late, she knew that much.

Though she’d only been to Atlantis and, consequently, Club Rush once, she knew the general direction of where it was, and she knew it would take her at least five or ten minutes to get there.
