~Alyssa's POV~

"So what happened in there?" Danny asked a couple minutes into the drive.

"Whadaya mean?" I asked as innocently as I could

"I mean, you look flushed and you're smiling." He said putting on a knowing look. "What happened?"

"Jack likes me," I started "and I like him." I figured he'll find out eventually, so I might as well be the one to tell him.

"It's about damn time." He said while looking out the window.

"Wait...huh?" I asked turning towards him immediately.

"You seriously thought you guys were being subtle?" He asked turning towards me. "It's so obvious you two like each other. Merritt owes me $50."

"You bet on this?" I was surprised. I thought I was doing a pretty decent job at hiding my feelings...apparantly not.

"Well yeah, easy money...for me at least." He said smirking. "Merritt said you guys would admit it two months from now. My expiration date was the end of this week, so thank you Aly."

"You suck you know that?" I said finally over the initial shock.

After a few minutes of silence a thought occurred to me.

"Wait," I started turning towards him "you said we were both obvious.."

"Yeah..." He said drawing it out.

"How was he making it obvious? Because I couldn't tell at all."

"Really? Are you really asking me that?"

"Well yeah" I said genuinely curious.

"Ok fine. You're like an open book when it comes to your emotions and how you feel.  If you're sad, mad, excited, confused, whatever, we can tell. Jack on the other hand is good at hiding his emotions, for the most part. It's whenever he's around you or someone brings up your name that he just, I dunno, brightens up I guess.  Since when we all first met, it was obvious. So for the rest of us, it was only a matter of time before you two finally happened." He explained.

I just sat there letting the words sink in. I didn't know what to say.

"So....would you....would you be okay if something did happen eventually?" I asked.

"Go for it. You're a big girl, you can make your own decisions." He said

"I knew you were awesome." I said smiling and leaning over the middle seat to give him an awkward side hug.

Now my mood went from amazing from talking to Jack, to incredibly amazing knowing that Danny is on my side.

"So what do we do about Arthur?" I asked knowing that he might not approve.

"Eh, we'll deal with that when the time comes." He said starting to get out of the car. I didn't even realize that we were already at the airport.

"Yeah, I guess we will." I said quietly to myself before getting out.

Who knows what can happen in New Orleans.
