Thalia's POV

I jump as a phone rings. It's been one week and we've left the shake and now we are in a normal house. "Can you get it?" Damson asks from the right beside me.

"I'll get it," Jason says going into the kitchen where the home phone is. "Hello?" Jason asks, the phone continues to ring. "Did Jason seriously just pick up the wrong phone?" Noah whisper asks from my left.

"So dumb."
"Hopefully his dumbness isn't contagious."
"If it is that he's not allowed in my new kitchen. It's beautiful and I don't need his germs in it."
"I know right."
"Jason, we are talking about you! Why are you agreeing?!"

I cover my mouth, trying not to laugh. "I'll be right back." Noah says standing up and leaving the room. "I need a girlfriend." Aaron says. "Haha, good luck." Damson says playing a game on his phone.

"I know you aren't talking to me." Aaron says flipping his nonexistent long hair. "So what if I was?" Damson asks looking up from his phone. "Shut up you stupid heads." I say rolling my eyes.

"Excuse me? When I was in school I got straight C's." Aaron says, I look at him dumbfounded. "Good for you! You get them C's!" Jason yells.

"Thank you, Jason." Aaron says. "No problem bro. I've got your back." He says. I get up and walk to the kitchen in search for something to eat.

I grab a bag of chips and start eating them. "Hey." Daniel says grabbing a chip out of my bag. "Excuse you." I say. "So about my ship that started last night..." He starts.

"No, your ship isn't going to happen. He doesn't like me in that way." I answer looking down at the bag. "So what about you? Do you like him? Also, eating isn't going to solve anything." He says taking the chip bag from me.

"Give me it back!" I say reaching for it. "No Thalia! You've come so far!" He says. "Did you just say that I used to be fat?" I gasp. "No, I wasn't talking about that!" Daniel says.

"So what you're saying is I used to be fat but you don't want to talk about it?" I glare. "Look, you used to stutter and you were scared of everything. Now you're a mean person." He says crossing his arms.

"You didn't answer my question." I state. "Think about what I said." He says. I roll my eyes and walk to the living room with Daniel where everyone was.

"So...I have news." Noah says. "Really? What?" John asks. "Well David and Daniel are going to be going back to visit their family. So...I decided it was best for everyone to go visit their family...sadly." He says.

Family?

"I'm going to get dinner." Damson says walking out of the room. I clear my throat and sit back on the couch. Minutes past and everyone left to their rooms.

The only people that were left were me and Noah. "Sooo," I trail off, I look at him but his eyes continued to look in front of him. "Can we talk about what happened last night?" I ask, he shrugs.

I glare at him and gross my arms. "Okay stutter girl what do you want to talk about last night for?" He asks. "My name is Thalia not stutter girl and I don't know. Do you like me?" I ask.

He was quiet for a few minutes; it felt like torture. "Yes, I like you stutter girl." He answers. "Oh." Thats all I say. That's all my mouth was able to say.

He likes me.

Noah likes me.

It's so weird to say that. "Well aren't you going to say anything? Just 'oh'? You made me say that and all you say is 'oh'?" He asks raising a eye brow, almost angry.

"I like you too." I say. "I'd kiss you but I'm on a different couch and my leg hurts." He says staring at me. I blush and look down. "O-oh." I stutter looking up. His eyes lit up; which made me blush even more.

"I love it when you stutter but I also hate it." He says. "What do you mean?" I ask. "I hate it because people might take advantage of it, they might take it a sign of weakness," He says sadly. "But don't worry, I'll always protect you."

"Oh well thank you but you didn't protect me when I got kidnapped." I laugh. "Yeah, and I'm so sorry for that..." he laughs awkwardly. "It is fine." I smile. He gets up and comes to sit next to me.

"Stutter girl, I like you. I like you so much. I promise I'll never hurt you. Will you please be my girlfriend?" He asks blushing. "Aww I made the gang leader blush! Yes Noah, I would love to be your girlfriend." I laugh smiling widely.
