WARNING: This chapter is really bad ⚠️

I gasped. "What?"
"I knew you wouldn't feel the same way I did. Sorry. I'll just go..." Fitz stood up, clearly hurt, about to walk out the door when I stopped him.
"Fitz, wait!" I rushed in front of him.
"Why, Sophie, why should I wait?" His expression was pained.
"Because...because I love you too." I forced out the words. The words I'd been wanting to say ever since I'd met him. The words that changed my life.
"Fitz?" I said gently.
"Shut up." I leaned in and kissed him again. Fitz responded immediately, surprising me. His mouth was so warm, the caress of his lips softer than last time, softer than I could have imagined. He tasted tentatively with his tongue, and I opened my mouth, letting him explore.
He leaned into me, but I broke off abruptly. Fitz frowned. "What's wrong?"
"Nothing, I just...yes."
"Yes what?" He asked.
"Yes, I'll be your girlfriend." I said, my heart doing summersaults.
Fitz didn't say anything. He just left the room. "Exactly the response I was looking for." I muttered.
When I finally found him, he was in Biana's room. I decided to stay hidden behind the door.
"How'd it go?" I heard Biana ask.
Apparently Tam was there too, because he added, "I bet he messed it up."
"I did not dare to mess it up. I've been planning this for months. As a reward for my preparedness, she said yes." Fitz's indignant voice floated over to where I was standing. Then I realized...they were talking about me!
"Oh my god. Fitz."
"Wow. So...what happened after she said yes?" Linh said. Linh? She was there too? Aaargh!
"I couldn't figure out what to do, so I just left the room."
"What?!?" Biana said in shock. "You just...left?"
"Nice going, Wonderboy." I then Keefe's mocking and accusing voice.
I peeked in. Everyone except Dex was there. Is he still taking to Marella? Whatever. Fitz was staring at the rest of them blankly. "What was I supposed to do?"
Biana did a face-palm. "Fitz, I love you, but you are so flipping clueless!"
"Flipping, beauty queen?" Keefe said, his tone full of amusement.
"Shut up!" She snapped. "Fitz, did you at least kiss her?"
Fitz changed his expression from dead-pan to horrified. "That information is confidential!"
"Oh stop it." Keefe said. "You sound like Mr. Forkle."
"Fitz. Tell me." Biana pressed.
"Alright, alright, fine, we did!" Fitz threw his hands up in the air, acting all mad. I suppressed a giggle. He is so cute when he does that, I thought.
"Yes! Okay, I'll go talk to her now." Biana hurried out of the room. I quickly hid behind the door again. Please don't see me, I prayed.
Of course, she saw me. "Sophie?" She said, surprised to see me. "Have you been listening this whole time?"
"Ummm...have you been helping Fitz to ask me out?" I deflected.
"Yeah...he's sorta clueless when it comes to lovie-dovie stuff. Sorry he walked out of the room." Biana apologized on behalf of her brother.
"It's not your fault. Will you tell him I'm in his room?"
Biana grinned slyly. "Sure, Sophie. Suuure."
I gave her a look. Why was she acting so strange?
I left to go to Fitz's room and laid down on his bed. God, I had only gotten 3 hours of sleep last night...I think I'll just...
"Sophie?" A crisp, accented voice interrupted my sleep (or half-sleep, anyway).
"Wha..." I woke up slowly to find Fitz standing over me. I jolted upright. "How long was I out?
"Just a couple minutes. By the way, I'm sorry I just walked out on you like that. I'm a little bad at relationship stuff." He apologized.
I rolled my eyes. "I can tell." I joked, laughing.
"Say that again." Fitz smiled, sitting down on the bed next to me.
"You're bad at r--" I squealed as he tackled and started tickling me. "Stooooop!" I complained.
"Not until you take back what you said." Fitz tickled my stomach.
I was giggling too hard to respond, so I tickled him back. "Sophie!" He said, laughing.
Five minutes later I was sitting on the bed and Fitz laying down on it, both of us gasping for air, laughing weakly.
"I hate you. So much." I said, grinning like an idiot.
"I hate you too, Soph."
"Soph?" I questioned, my smile widening.
"Yes." He grabbed my hips and lifted me up and flipped me over so I was laying on the other side of him. "You're my Soph."
"Then you're my Fitzy." I teased, putting my arms around him.
Fitz laughed. "Okay, Soph."
"Fine, Fitzy."
"Whatever, Mysterious Miss F."
"Mrs. Vacker."
"Fi--wait, what?"
He put on a confused face. "Nothing." Fitz said quickly.
"You just called called me Mrs. Vacker!!" I squealed in realization.
"Oops." He said. "Sor--"
"Be quiet." I said, and kissed him again as I let my giddy thoughts overcome me.
Dear Mental Diary, today was the best day of my life.
I awoke the next morning to a less than cheerful sound.
"Awww, you guys are so cute!"

(A/N): sorry this is so bad...see you guys tomorrow ;)
