Kali nervously walked into the room, her heart pounding. After all this time, this was the moment. The real moment she'd been waiting for.
On the other side of the room, Jack Avery was taking pictures with fans, hugging girl after girl and smiling like the day was nothing different. No one noticed the way he kept looking nervously over his shoulder at the door.
And their eyes met.
For a second neither one of them moved, just stood there staring at each other like there was no one else in the room.
Then Kali, the shy one, the one who wasn't sure if she could even stay friends with a famous guy, took off running across the room, right into his arms.
He met her halfway, picking her up and spinning her around, and before either one of them even knew was what happening, his lips were on hers and everyone around them was going, "Awww!" and pulling their phones out to get it on Snapchat.
When they finally pulled away to breathe, they were both wearing the biggest smiles they had in their entire lives.
"I love you," she whispered, leaning her forehead against his. He smiled. "I love you too, not-Brooke," he whispered back.
