Paige's POV

"Excuse me." I whispered into the blondes ear and got up from my theater seat. I walked outside and breathed in the cool night air.

"Damnit." I muttered to myself running my fingers through my hair. Why couldnt I just have one night out without thinking of Emily? I fumbled through my purse and grabbed my cell phone. I lingered over Emilys number and hit call.

"Hello?" Emily awnsered sounding down.

"Hey Em, its Paige."

"Paige! I'm glad to hear from you. Uh...hows your...night out?" She said mumbling the last part.

"Not what I expected." I chuckled bitterly.

"Really?" I heard a hint of enthusiam in her voice.

"Well dont be too happy Em!" I laughed.

"No..its just...I dont know. Did you need something in particular?" She asked.

"Would you...I mean you dont have to but...would you want to come pick me up and talk?" I said into the phone.

"Absolutly, where are you?"

"The theater. I'll wait for you outside." I smiled to myself.

"Be right there ba-...Paige." She sighed and I hung up. I ran back inside and sat down for a second.

"I'm not feeling very well, I'm going to go, I'm so sorry for ditching you like this." I whispered into the blondes ear.

"Are you sure? Do you want me to drive you?"

"No no, I called and got a ride. Enjoy the rest of the show, I'll call you later." I said kissing her cheek and standing up again and walking towards the door. Aria grabbed my wrist when I walked by her chair and she stood up and followed me out.

"Hey Paige, are you alright?" Aria asked as we walked outside.

"Yeah, I'm fine, thanks for asking." I smiled.

"Listen I've heard things have been rough with you and Emily lately but....she loves you Paige. We all see it. Every day she beats herself up for what happened between you two." Aria frowned then looked at the car pulling in front of us.

"Em?" She raised an eyebrow. Emily rolled down her window and waved at Aria.

"What are you doing here?" Aria questioned her.

"Well..I...uh." Emily struggled.

"She came to pick me up." I blushed.

"Oh! Oh gosh Paige you let me babble on like an idiot for nothing!" She said playfully slapping at my arm.

"I just needed a friend." I said to Aria.

"One thats not blonde?" She said giggling and walking back in.

"Bye Aria!" Emily called. I jumped in the passenger seat and rolled the window up.

"Your house or mine?" I smiled.

"My moms not home. Mine?"

"Okay lets just swing by mine...I'm not talking to you in a little black dress."

"I wouldnt mind..." She smirked.

"I bet." I rolled my eyes. It was always so easy with Emily. Why couldnt I put my guard up with her?
