Chapter 11-

"What?! Dude, I said we'd be friends! I mean, I love you, but not like that. Like a friend. Who said that I liked you like that?" Kevin blurts, baffled by my question.

"What? Do you have a problem, because you sound upset?" I ask, slightly offended by his tone of voice.

"No, I don't have a problem, I promised we'd be friends. I do love you, but I don't, if that made sense." Kevin winks.

"Okay, it would've been really stupid if we fought over something like that," I breathe, pushing out the silent air as I spoke.

"Now you still, for the millionth time have to answer my question," Kevin sighs, but his "tone" of sigh was quite displeasing.

"Are we completely alone?" I mutter, blowing my hair away from my face afterward. Kevin stands and locks the door,"completely." I don't know what it was about the way that word rolled off his tongue, but my cheeks highlight heavily.

" mean I do, but he's like an older brother to me. He's way too over protective. Like he got upset when I stayed at your place. I can't keep putting up with this," I explain sheepishly.

"Well damn. Telling by the way he treats you, over little things like that, you're not allowed to have a social life. With guys at least," Kevin sighs, running his hand through his thick brown hair.

"That's what it feels like, but I enjoy having a social life. With you, Manny, Alix, and Evan. Some of the people I talked to on the streets even. If I could, I mean, I can, but I would go back to living on the streets. My social status was pretty good then. But now, its just shit." I growl, my thoughts racing about if I did go back to the streets. Would Seth hunt for me? Would Kevin take me in? Would into...Adam again?

"So, why are you still with him?" Kevin leans back snugly in his chair and crosses his arms behind his head.

"Because, I don't like being alone. I just chose to, because, I don't want to be with Seth. I couldn't bare life before and Adam broke me, badly. At which point I had no one. Then me and Seth spoke for a while and he offered for me to stay with him. But we just fought...again because he didn't come to the party with us, and because I stayed at your house. I need space sometimes!" I explain, staring to the dark purple, carpeted floor.

"Hey Kev, its Alister!" Alister calls, knocking lightly on the door. Kevin's eyes light up instantly and he opens the door.

"Dude, look at this picture I just painted." Alister smiles handing Kevin a picture of a little space cow. I do a fangirl squeal and the guys laugh at me.

"Alister, you are so fucking talented!! It not fair," I giggle.

"I know! I still can't get over it." Kevin smirks.

"Thanks guys, really. I appreciate it." Alister blushes.

"So I hear you guys are going to Warped in the UK,"

"Yeah, I'm excited as hell!!" Kevin exclaims.

"Wait, you guys are going to Warped?!" I ask, wanting an immediate answer.

"Yeah. We never told you?" Kevin turns to me, and looks me dead in the eyes.

"No. And why-" my phone suddenly blares.

"Who could that be?" I mumble, pulling it from my pocket. Seth; of course.

"Hello?" I gulp.

"Heidi! What the hell!! I was worried sick about you all night and then you run off?! I stopped at the apartment and the secretary told me no one was there! Come home right now!!" Seth screams in my ear. Alister and Kevin stare at me, their faces...they were completely lost, shocked, confused.

"Kevin, Alister, can I have some privacy please?" I whisper, covering the phone and tilting it from my ear. They nod and exit quietly.

"Are you kidding me. You're with Kevin again?!" Seth shouts making my phone vibrate.

"Well Seth! I honestly don't know what to say. I mean, you shouldn't be surprised, he's my friend and he decided to take me to his place to sleep," I yell

"Is that what you were trying to go? You wanted that bitch to take you in, didn't you?"

"No! I wanted to sleep on the tree and reminisce,"

"So why'd you go with him?!"

"Seth, I was half asleep and it was two in the morning!"

"Not the point! You told me you were going to stay there all night!"

"See Seth, that's you problem. You are too protective. You're suffocating me! Our relationship is not healthy. When I said I wanted to be with you, I didn't want it to be like this. I want to have friends. I want to be alone. I want to have my own life." I completely spill my feelings.

"The only reason this is happening between us is because of Kevin, isn't it?"

"NO!!! We're just friends." I scream

"Heidi, please come home. Please," Seth, murmurs. I sigh and give into sympathy.

"Okay, I'll be home in a few minuets," I grunt, rolling my eyes. I hang up and rub my temples.

"You're leaving?" Kevin asks, opening the door.

"Yeah, Seth's pretty upset...again,"

"I heard. He thinks I'm the problem with your relationship?

"Sadly, but yes. You aren't though. And I'm sure nothing drastic will happen anyway." I smile,"bye! Call me or something." I hug Kevin tightly and slip my phone number into his back pocket.

"Bye Heidi," he mutters.

-Kevin's P.O.V- ( I just want to close with this)

Heidi releases me slowly and we walk out to the doors of the studio. Heidi waves again and leaves the building. I sit in the window and watch her disappear into the daylight. As her figure fades, I get this weird feeling in my stomach and my heart gains a beat...



What is this feeling he's feeling?!?!?!?! Sorry about the lack of updates. School's about to be over for two weeks. Christmas break, then I'll update a little more.
