I stayed in the bathroom until it was all over. I started to cry a little, I felt so guilty about what had happened to Paige. I shouldn't have blindfolded her. I should have let someone else do it instead. I sat down on the toilet lid and thought about everything.

I'm such the worried type.

I sat for a while and waited until Kian impatiently knocks on the door repeatedly. 

"Yeah?" I say with a croaky voice. "Uh... come in." I cough so my voice returns to normal.

"Hey, what's wrong?" He asks, patting my back and almost sitting on my lap.

"Nothing..." I let out a sigh and rub my eyes.

"Do you have feelings for... you know?"

"No. I mean I... I just feel guilty for everything that just happened." I tell Kian truthfully, as I stand up and start pacing around the bathroom.

"Well, I have some good news!" Kian says excitedly.

"What is it? Tell me!" My ears prick up and my frown fades, my heart now beating very fast.

"Well, first, she survived."

"Seriously?" I let out a sigh of relief as my heartbeat returns to normal.

"Yeah man. Why would I lie to you about something as serious as this? The second thing is that she wants to talk to you. Privately. She won't tell us what it's about or why though. Sounds like someone's getting lucky tonight!" He starts dancing stupidly around in the bathroom.

"Why would you think that? She only just got here!" I protest, hoping that he's just joking around.

I feel heat rush into my cheeks and I can tell that I am blushing. Just then, everyone gathers around the entrance of the bathroom.

"What's all this noise about?" Connor asks, sounding like he's still trying to impress Paige.

"Someone's getting lucky tonight!" Kian starts dancing and screaming again, while pointing at me.

The guys start joining Kian's dancing and start coming in to congratulate me. I slap Kian's stomach, causing him to double over in pain. I scan everyone's face, hoping not to see Paige. But she was there. A smirk placed on her lips. She was staring right at me, not even worrying about the other people flooding the bathroom.

She motions for me to follow her, so silently leave the room and follow her to her bedroom. She shuts the door  behind us and bursts out into tears instantly.

"Thank you for saving me." She manages to choke out through the tears.

"But it wasn't me. It was Connor. You're better off talking to him not me." I rest my hands on her shoulders and turn to leave.

"But I don't want to talk to Connor." She pulls me back.

I bite my lip as Paige looks straight into my eyes and wraps her arms around my neck.

"I want to talk to you." She says, now leaning closer.

At that moment, I completely forgot about what had happened and pulled Paige in closer, our wet bodies now making contact in a heartwarming hug.

We stood there hugging for a while until Paige finally pulled away.

"That's enough hugging. Now for the talking." She said, her sweet smile fading into a straight, serious face.

I nod and breathe in deeply, preparing myself for whatever she's going to say to me. Honestly, I was worried.
