“Really!” Liam says defensively. I laugh and shake my head.
“I don’t believe you, but okay,” I say with a smile. He chuckles and squeezes my hand lightly.
“I’m serious, Jacey. It happened.”
“I’m sure it did, Liam. Just like in freshman year when you had a date with Hilary Duff, right?”
“Hey! That happened, too!” I laugh and stop in front of my locker.
“Mhmm,” I mumble, turning and standing on my tiptoes to kiss him lightly. He smiles down at me.
“So you aren’t mad I cheated on you with Jessica Alba?” he asks teasingly. I smirk up at him.
“As long as you aren’t mad at me for cheating on you with Johnny Depp.” Liam makes a face.
“Jacey, you do know he’s like 50, right?”
“I would take him over you any day.”
“Gee, thanks. Nice to know you like old men.”
“Old pirate men.”
“So you only like him as Jack Sparrow?”
“So in order for you to like him he has to be dressed as a dirty, nasty, man who looks homeless?”
“Yep.” Liam laughs and shakes his head.
“What if I dressed up as a pirate for Halloween?” He says with a raised eyebrow. I turn and smile at him.
“I would love you forever.” Liam chuckles and leans against the wall as I dig through my locker for my notebook.
“Liam!” I hear a male voice shout. I turn to see a couple of Liam’s friends walking over. I internally sigh.
“What’s up?” Liam asks casually, smiling at his friends.
“Not much, Bro. Hey Jacey,” says one of the boys, Kyle. I smile at him.
“Hey Kyle,” I say indifferently, turning back to my locker.
“I heard you threw a party at your house a couple weeks ago,” Kyle continues. I tense up.
“What?” Liam asks, but I don’t look at him. I turn around to look at Kyle.
“No. Colton Shaw threw the party. We live together, you know.”
“Yeah, I’ve heard,” Kyle says with an eye roll, “But I heard you got pretty drunk.”
“What?” Liam asks, his voice going up an octave. I grimace at Kyle. I have been trying to forget about that.
“I did not.”
“That’s what everyone’s saying.”
“I had a few drinks. That’s it.”
“Alex says she saw you disappear in Colton’s room with some guy.” Kyle isn’t simply curious anymore. He’s accusing.
How did Alex find out about that? Was she at that party? Of course she was. She never missed a party, especially if it was Colton Shaw’s party.
“Alex said that, huh?”
“Yeah. She did.”
“And you believed her?”
“I don’t know. I might.”
“You should know better than to believe everything Alex says. She’s a lying bitch.”
