He walks me through the house with his arm around my waist, earning stares from everybody we walk past. I don't feel uncomfortable, like I used to with Myles.

"Oh so it's true, I saw this one coming haha." Miz comes up to hug me. What is this? What are me and Cam? This is so confusing but it feels nice not to have a defined relationship.

We go and sit down on the couch, talking and listening to Jake DJ. Jake is truly talented. By the time it hits midnight, his house is crowded with tons of teenagers. Some of them holding red cups filled with alcohol and some of them on couches hooking up; a typical high school party.

Kalin grabs my shoulder and says, "Come here, I need to talk to you." Cam lets go of my hand, without me even realizing we were holding hands in the first place. I walk with Kalin and we go towards the kitchen.

"Okay you got me here, what do you need?" My tone slightly irritated.

"I need to talk to you about something." He actually looks concerned.

"What is it? If it's about Myles I don't want to hear it. I have had enoug-" He cuts me off so he doesn't have to hear my complaining.

"Well it is about Myles, but not really. Don't you think it's too soon to move on? I know you said that you did not want to hear it but it's true.. Just trying to give you some advice."

"I don't want your advice Kalin! Your not the first person who is telling me this. I know your trying to help but it's not working. Me and Cam aren't even together, just leave it alone."

While me and Kalin are walking back to the livingroom, I see Myles. Him and Breauna are making out on the couch. The thing is that it does not seem to bother me. I don't get that sick jealous feeling in my stomach.. It does not effect me in any way. But why is Myles so concerned about Cam if he has Breauna?

I find Cam and sit down next to him. We continue our conversation about colleges, and how we're going to miss our families. Then he brings up his dream college.. Walden University. He has to be joking right? That is the college of my dreams and it has been since I was a freshman. "Are you serious? Walden?" I say with a surprised expression on my face.

"Yeah.. is that a bad choice? I know its expensive and it is far.." He started to look down.

"No, it's been my first choice since I was a freshman, I already sent in my application." He looked up and smiled at me, then grabbed my hand. What is he doing?

"Anna, I need to talk to you."

"About what?" It doesn't seem like a good time to be talking about anything serious, with a bunch of teenagers dancing around us to loud music.

"I'm just going to say it before I over-think it. I like you Anna, a lot. During the past few weeks I've been trying to show you that I have feelings for you, but you seem oblivious to it. Myles is right. There is something going on, but I just need to know if you feel the same way that I do." I am completely stunned at what he said.. he was so straight forward with it. I thought he liked me but I didn't know he liked me that much. What do I say?

"I like you a lot Cam, but.." His smile fades, "I feel bad because your friends with Myles."

"He doesn't seem to care! You and Breauna were friends and look at them now." He gestures towards them, "please Anna. Why can't we just be together? It shouldn't be this hard."

I ask him, "Can we go outside?"

"Sure." He grabs my hand and leads me outside. We sit on the curb where it's quiet; away from all of the drunk teenagers.

"Anna please, just give me a chance. Give this a chance." He looks at me sincerely. I don't know what to say or do. I want to give him a chance, but if I do I know that Myles will make his life a living hell. I hope can handle Myles.
