Alec just looked at me like I was crazy; I knew what he was thinking. 'Like hell I am doing that, I'll look like an idiot and never hear the end of it from Jace or Izzy'. I stopped moving and placed my hands on my hips and just stared at him annoyed. "Come on at least try," I said my patience wearing thin. "Fine just put your hands on my hips and move with me." "My hands on your wha--," Alec said stunned with his cheeks flushing again. "On my hips Alec. Geez, it's like you've never touched a girl before," I responded extremely annoyed. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vicky was trained to fight, to kill, but nothing could have prevented that day from happening.
