I felt my body instantly tense merely at the sound of her disgustingly high pitched vioce.

We all turned to look at her with disbelief.

How the hell did she know we were here?

"How did you know we were her, Michelle?" Val asked, trying to stay calm and keep the irritation out of her voice.

"Oh! I saw Brian's car and then I noticed everyone else's so I thought I'd stop by and see what was going on." She said with a smile that made me want to vomit.

"You know people usually wait for an invitation before they barge in on breakfast." Nique said with a cocked eyebrow.

I smiled widely and so did Zacky.

Michelle turned to look at Nique and smirked.

"Monique! I haven't seenyou in ages. I thought you and Zacky broke up." She said, her smirk growing wider.

There was an audible gasp that went around the table.

I looked at Nique and her eyes narrowed to thin slits.

I could see the anger boiling in her eyes.

She jumped to her feet and Michelle cowered before her.

Brian stood up between them, trying to make a barrier.

"I'll show you broken up, bitch." Nique hissed.

We all watched the scene unravel before us.

She leaned forward on the table and now Zacky stood up, glaring daggers at Michelle.

"I'm not someone you want to fuck with. Trust me." Aqua whispered in a deadly voice.

There was silence for a moment and I quietly stood up and made my way to Monique.

I gently set my hand on her shoulder and she turned around quickly to see who was touching her.

Her eyes were hard as ice and they immediately softened when she was it was me.

"Let's go get some air." I suggested, jerking my head toward the door.

She took in a deep breath and Zacky bent down and kissed her forehead gently.

She looked into his eyes and after a moment she nodded.

I looped my arm through hers and we walked around the table, trying to keep as much distance between those two.

I know if Monique was close enough to Michelle, she wouldn't hesitate in beating her down.

I wouldn't even try and stop her either.

Michelle's been asking for it.

There's one thing you don't ever do.

That's question Monique's relationship with Zacky.

You are cruisin' for a bruisin' by doing that.

We walked by Brian who was still acting as a barrier between the two girls.

As I passed him, he grabbed my arm and pulled me to him.

"Hurry back." He whispered.

I smiled as he pressed a soft kiss to my lips.

"Always." I said, walking back to Nique.

We both walked outside and strolled around the parking lot.

"Are you ok?" I asked, stopping so I could look at her.

She stopped too and just looked at me.

"I fuckin' hate her, Cynthia. With a passion." She said through gritted teeth.

"I know and you're not alone." I told her.

"I just want to grab her by her ugly ass brown and blonde hair and throw her under a train." She said angrily.

"Okay, we came out here to calm down. Just breathe." I said calmy.

She nodded and took a deep breath.

"There you go. Is that better?" I asked.

Monique looked me in the eyes and nodded.

"You just can't let her get to you." I said, rubbing her shoulders.

"I know. I just really hate her." She said.

"I know you do. But you have tobe the bigger person here, Nique. Don't give her the satisfaction of getting a reaction out of you." I said.

She took another deep breath and nodded.

"You ready to go back inside?" I asked her.

"Yeah. Let's go. But if that bitch says one more thing to me, it's on." She said, her voice holding a deadly promise.

"I'll help you." I said with a smile.

She laughed and we walked back inside.

I breathed in sharply when we walked back inside and I got a glimpse of our table.

Monique must have heard me cause she put her arm around me.

"You still sure you don't want to take this bitch out?" She asked.

The idea was so tempting and I almost gave in.

I watched as Michelle smiled and scooted even closer to my boyfriend.

I looked around the table and Val caught my eye.

She had the most apologetic look on her face and it actually made me feel bad.

I smiled at her and she grinned back.

Brian looked up and saw me standing there.

He smiled and waved me over, putting space between him and Michelle.

"Not right now. I have a feeling it's gonna happen soon though." I said with a smirk as I walked over to Brian.

He smiled at me and pulled me down next to him.

He put his arm around me and pulled me even closer.

"Just let me know. I'm always ready." Aqua said with a laugh.

"Ready for what?" Brian asked with a curious look on his face.

"Nothing." I said, smiling up at him innocently.

I laughed and me and Nique shared a smile.
