Janelle's POV

I strummed my fingers on the steering wheel as I drove towards the beach house. I had the top down on my white convertible and the sun warmed my skin perfectly. I couldn't help but smile. This was THE weekend. I was going to get Nathan to fall for me if it killed me.

I glanced back at the trunk, which had my bags in it. Before I left I made sure to raid Katie's stuff. I found out which perfume she used, the brand of makeup she wore, and everything else. So I did what any girl in my position would do and I bought all of it. I was not going to use it when we got back home. I mean my skin would probably breakout because of all the cheap chemicals in it. I plan to use the products all weekend and then Nathan would like me the way he likes Katie. My plan was fool proof.

I turned up the radios and hummed along to the song. Did it bother me that my boyfriend had a crush on another girl? Did it bother me that our relationship is basically a fraud? No. No it doesn't. This is because I have always known that I would end up with a guy like Nathan: wealthy, handsome, and powerful. It doesn't matter how I get him it just matters that I do.

Thoughts of the day Nathan almost broke "this" up came back into my mind. I remember feeling helpless. I did the only thing I thought I could; I called Zane, who owed me big time (why is another story). He spilled the beans about our fake relationship to a small tabloid. Even though hardly anybody saw it, Nathan's mom freaked. He came running back to me and said that we couldn't tell anybody. I remembered that he wanted to tell Katie that everything was fake the first time around, he told me that this time not even Katie could know. He promised it would only be for a little while. That "little while" is almost up, which is why I'm pulling out all the stops. I have to be with Nathan. I can't be the girl that he dumped. I would lose my image and my popularity.

I turned the wheel as I pulled into the circle driveway. The house was large enough for all of us yet still had a small, quaint, vibe to it. I shut the car door and grabbed my things. My heels clicked as I walked up the steps and opened the door.

My blood boiled when I saw Nathan and Katie, alone, in the kitchen. I swallowed my anger and put on a dazzling smile. "Nathan, baby, you're here!" I set my bags down and raced to him. Yeah sure I was being dramatic but maybe there was a chance I could guilt him into staying with me.

He stayed in his chair but smiled at me when I hugged him,"I saw you before I left."

I laughed,"You know I can't stay away from you  for too long! I'll go crazy!"

I looked at Katie. That was one thing I just couldn't make myself do. She always had this look of complete admiration anytime she was around Nathan. I would stand in front of the mirror and try to mimicking it, but I couldn't. It pissed me off. I eventually came to the conclusion that it was just because of her, freakishly, blue eyes nothing else.

Nathan shrugged me off, and before Katie could notice, I took my hands off him,"Want to go for a swim?" I asked.

Nathan shook his head and waved his phone,"I've got emails." He didn't look at me as he spoke.

I realized I just had to get his attention,"Well I'm going to get my bikini on and we will see how you feel then." I heard Katie let out a small scoff as I walked away. I didn't care though. Nothing matters more to me than getting Nathan to fall for me this weekend.
