"Max keep still or I'm going to mess it up!" JJ hissed holding my face still while trying to do my eyeliner.
"Stop it!" I whined but she just held me tighter.
"I can and will make you look like a racoon if you don't stop." She threatened and I would have glared at her if I wasn't being blinded by the stick she was currently jamming in my left eye.
Knock knock knock.
"Happy now! We're going to be late." She complained before calling behind her, "Come in, the door's open!"
I could hear chuckling but couldn't get a good look of who it was cause of my watery eyes and the fact that JJ was standing in front of the door.
"Hey girls." Dylan slammed the door dropping down on JJ's bed.
"You're early." JJ scolded, "I told you seven thirty."
"And it is," he paused probably glancing down at his watch, "Seven twenty eight so that's only two minutes early."
JJ grumbled something else but I couldn't make it out but I really wasn't going to bother myself with it.
The music was pounding in my ears so loud I couldn't even hear my own thoughts. My heart was thudding hard in my chest knowing that at any moment I could run into Fang and I was dreading that. Dylan had his arm around my waist and kept shooting me reassuring smiles which I appreciated but I didn't think I'd feel much better even if I was at home with my moms home made cookies.
"Oi! Max! Get your pretty bum over here now!" Iggy called loudly pushing through the crowds of people. He had a huge grin plastered on his face and I couldn't help but smile back.
"Hey Igs." I greeted giving him a hug. "What have you done with my best friend?" I asked raising an eyebrow at the fact that JJ wasn't with him. He hadn't asked her but ended up whisking her away the moment we stepped foot in the gym.
"Oh, she's gone to the ladies to 'freshen up'." he rolled his eyes and I laughed.
"She should be back in a few minutes but I thought since I hadn't danced with you yet I may as well take this opportunity." He bowed dramatically and kissed the back of my hand, "My I have the pleasure Miss Ride?" he grinned at me and waggled his eyebrows. I had to restrain my laughter and instead nodded so he pulled me away – no pulled would be the wrong word it was more dragged. Once we were on the dance floor the song changed and Iggy actually squealed. What did JJ see in him? I wondered but laughed at his weird behaviour. I have no idea how long we danced for but it must have been ages because when the slow dancing started I was just about ready to feint. Iggy seemed extremely pleased with himself and just as I opened my mouth to ask what the smug smile was for there was a tap on my shoulder. When I turned to see who it was my eyes locked with two obsidian pools and I felt my already fast heart pick up a notch. Fang.
I was just a little shocked so when he took my hand and placed the other on my waist I didn't hesitate to follow his lead. My brain finally seemed to catch up with my body and I frowned at him, not too sure what he was playing at.
"Any particular reason why you've decided to kidnap me?" I asked with an edge to my voice.
Fang noticed this and winced, "I wanted to talk to you." He admitted, "I didn't know how else to get you alone."
I looked around at the dancing couples who were all staring lovingly into each others eyes and all that mushy stuff. Too bad I didn't get to partake in any of it; instead I was slow dancing with my lying ex-boyfriend.
"So you and Dylan…" he trailed off hoping for me to finish it for him. His eyes were still boring into mine and the truth bubbled out before I could think about it.
"We're not together."
I almost instantly regretted it, wasn't that the whole reason for having Dylan here? To make Fang jealous? God, JJ was so free to shoot me if I got out of this alive. I felt myself blush and hated myself all the more, not a time to be blushing Max! I chastised myself.
Something like hope flashed in his endless eyes and I became even more confused.
"Oh." Was all he said, fighting back a smile which made me angry.
I pushed him away and he frowned in confusion. "What do you want Fang? Haven't you humiliated me enough already?" I was sick of not having the answers I deserved, he had no right to treat me like this and if he didn't start speaking soon I would deck him then and there.
Sadness flooded his eyes and he hung his head. "I'm sorry." He whispered and that was me done, I turned on my heel ready to leave and go hit something but he grabbed my wrist and pulled me back to him. "No! Hear me out! Please." He begged and I stood rooted to the spot glaring at him.
Obviously taking this as his cue to start explaining and fast he hurried on. "I'm an idiotic self centred bastard, and I'll admit it. Accepting that bet was wrong and I am sorrier than you could imagine but I'm in love with you Max and it took that bet to make me realise it. It was cruel to find out the way you did but I swear to god when I asked you to come to my dorm I was going to tell you! Ask JJ and Iggy! I didn't tell you sooner because I knew you'd do this and I didn't want to lose you." He was full out begging now but what I hadn't realised was that tears were slowly falling down my cheeks and everyone around us had stopped dancing to listen. He took my hands and held them tightly.
"Please Max, I'll do anything, anything at all just give me another chance." He pleaded his eyes so sad and worried and full of love that I just wanted to run but he held my hands tight. "Please?" he breathed releasing my hands but holding me round the waist.
I didn't know what to do; I was caught between believing him and punching him so hard that he lost his memory. I didn't know if I could trust him, what if this was just another lie? I didn't think I could take it. My gaze drifted to the people around us and I found Iggy and JJ just a few feet away. "He's telling the truth." Iggy said and JJ nodded as if to encourage me. I was so confused! While I was having this little internal battle with myself everyone else started to whisper.
"B-but Lisa." I finally managed to choke out and he seemed slightly relieved.
He shook his head furiously, "She's just desperate, I swear there was never anything between her and me; it's always been you."
Oh god, he was too close, I couldn't think straight! I moved to push him slightly back but he was having none of it and instead moved closer until we were only centimetres apart.
"I love you." He breathed and I broke.
I closed the small distance between us and hesitantly pressed my lips to his. It was gentle and sweet and answered every question I had swimming around in my head. When we broke apart everyone started clapping and whooping and Iggy was wolf whistling. Pervert. I rolled my eyes at him and when I looked into Fang's eyes all they held was pure elation and love. A grin spread across his face and he kissed me again, this time slightly harder.
"I love you too." I let out between kisses and he laughed.
I rested my head on his familiar chest and sighed, I didn't know if I'd made the right choice but I didn't really care at that moment. I was with Fang and he loved me and that was all that mattered.
