A/N: Thanks again for the patience. For all of those who read and reviewed this story thank you for your loyalty.
Mercedes went to describe everything that happened last night and added comments on how she felt for every moment Sam and her interacted. A few probing questions from Mrs. Evans and Mercedes was spilling her guts out. Mercedes was not telling Mrs. Evans everything only from the barbecue, to their bonding after the incident, to the after game. Mercedes omitted the things that have happened before that not wanting to put Sam in a different light that his mother has for him. She doesn't know what it is with the Evans matriarch but she does feel at ease talking to her about anything and everything.
"Let's go back to the kiss. How was it?" Mrs. Evans excitedly asked, like a teenager begging details from her close girl friend.
Mercedes felt blood rushing to her face and Mrs. Evans saw the reddening on Mercedes' face as she waited for information.
"I really have no comparison seeing it was my first kiss , but the moment I responded to his kiss I felt ashamed at how my body responded so I ran inside leaving him out there." Mercedes looked at her hands not wanting Mrs. Evans to see her embarrassment.
"Did he take advantage of you? I'm going to kill that son of mine." Mrs. Evans felt angry inside of her rising up as she waited for Mercedes' confirmation.
"Oh good God, no I didn't mean it like that. I just... Well when we were kissing I might have pressed myself on him and attacked his lips like there was no tomorrow. I'm not sure how it happened but I'm not that girl Mrs. Evans. I don't do things like that, I've never been on a date before let alone kiss a boy like that. I don't even have girl friends to ask about these things and talking to Kurt, well you know that's suicide. I'm so confused, I'm a seventeen year old girl turning eighteen soon and I feel like an adolescent going through puberty for the first time." Mercedes explained through her embarrassment.
Mrs. Evans smiled at Mercedes' revelation. She sympathized knowing how hard it was for her during her teenage years. She knew exactly what Mercedes was going through and thought it would be good practise now for when Stacie go through these changes in the future.
"So you felt your body reacting like wanting to be closer and doing other things?" Mrs. Evans asked and Mercedes nodded.
"Please believe me when I say that I've never really thought of Sam that way. I was grateful for everything he's done for me and enjoyed our friendship but for me to want to be kissing him forever and possibly doing other things it just surprised and scared me." Mercedes tried explaining further.
"Believe me that's all normal for your age. But with regard to your feelings for Sam, sometimes it all start as friendship then in one moment it can just click and turn into something totally different. It is scary, but taking the risk is part of knowing what could be. No one knows for sure what the outcome is but more often than not the risk is worth it." Mercedes thought about what Mrs. Evans just said.
"Thank you, I needed to hear that. I actually thought I was going out of my mind." Mercedes finally smiled.
"All girls go through that insecurity phase about a possible relationship at one point. I remember mine with Sanders, he was so persistent I actually thought he had a bet or something, and he doesn't like losing. I fought those feelings I had for him but in the end I could never be happier than I am now." Mrs. Evans reminisced.
"What should I do? I don't think I can face Sam or be in the same room with him. I don't think I can continue to work for your family knowing he'll be there."
"Oh hush, don't go in to extremes Mercedes. You'll be fine. Just think about it for now. Try to not get in contact with him and see how you feel without him distracting you." Mercedes thought about it and nodded.
"I think that's a good idea. We've been constantly around each other or talking or texting, I think doing that will clear my head of these thoughts." Mercedes agreed with Mrs. Evans.
"Well I better not keep you any longer. Just don't think too much of it, let things happen and don't fight it you never know. Anyway let's go and I'll take you home so I can have a chat with your mother." Mrs. Evans asked for their check and left the restaurant as soon as she paid.
It's been 5 days since Sam last spoke to Mercedes. He tried texting her but she never replied. He tried calling but all he got was voicemail. He even tried to get Kurt to call Mercedes but he also only got her voicemail. That pacified him for now knowing it wasn't only him that she didn't want to talk to, but the feeling of worry was still there lurking. His mother told him to do everything he can to talk to her. She also told him that she might need space but it shouldn't deter him from his goal. If he wanted Mercedes he has to find a way to let her know, but at the same time not scare her. Sam is going out of his mind trying to get hold of Mercedes. He thought of going to their house and confronting her but that would totally go against not scaring her. As much as he wanted to see her he didn't want to add another reason for her to run away from him. He knew that she'll be in their house Saturday and decided to wait it out that much longer to talk to her.
Mercedes decided to focus on her studies deciding to finally take her GED next week. She has spoken to their school admin to make the necessary preparation for her exams. She told Kurt that she'd be too busy with the studying so she would be shutting her phone to avoid distractions. She asked him to be patient and understand that she needed to focus. Mercedes also promised him a sleepover as soon as she's done with her exams. It is now 10 in the evening and Mercedes decided to call it a night knowing she would be at the Evans' home tomorrow with her siblings. She washed up and readied herself for bed. This was the only time she allows herself to think about Sam, her favorite thought out of her entire day. She was fine not talking to Sam the first 2 days but then on the third day she missed him so much that the only thing that's keeping her from grabbing her phone and calling Sam was the thought of her first kiss. This became a routine for Mercedes every night, thinking about Sam and falling asleep with him on her mind. She noticed that doing this would make her wake up in a better mood and was able to focus more on her studies. She felt ready to take the exams and couldn't wait for next week to happen. Mercedes finally closed her eyes and slept with another smile on her face.
The Jones were rushing around the house trying to get everything they needed for Katie and Mikey's play date at the Evans. Mercedes made sure they had an extra change of clothes while the kids tried to pick out toys they'd want to bring. Mrs. Jones on the other hand prepared the dish she made last night for them to bring over. Fifteen minutes later the Jones were on the bus making their way to the Evans' home. Mrs. Evans dropped Mercedes off last week and chatted with Mrs. Jones. That was the time Mrs. Evans asked Mrs. Jones to accompany her at a ladies luncheon and asked if the kids can have a play date. Mrs. Jones hesitated at first but Mrs. Evans has her ways and soon the ladies were talking about what time to meet and what to wear. So here the Jones are in front of the Evans home wide eyed staring at the beautiful house with the exception of Mercedes who was chuckling at the sight of her family. Mercedes proceeded to ring the bell and waited for Mrs. Evans to answer. The sound of the door opening broke the Jones from their trance. Mercedes was smiling ready to greet Mrs. Evans only to come face to face with her current vice. Her smile soon faltered and looked down to avoid looking at Sam.
"Good morning!" Sam greeted.
"Good morning Sam. Are we too early?" Mrs. Jones asked.
"Not at all we've all been waiting for you guys to arrive and you're just in time, breakfast is ready." Sam explained.
Sam gestured for them to come in and waved at the kids as they passed him. Mercedes entered last still not looking up. Sam smiled at Mercedes' actions but decided not to pressure her for now. The Jones' entered the large dining room and exchanged pleasantries with the Evans. Sanders finally met Sissy and they soon felt like old friends.
Breakfast was a bit awkward for Mercedes as she was sat next to Sam. She was about to sit next to Stacie but Katie beat her to it and when she tried sitting next to Stevie Mikey was already there. Mercedes sat down next to Sam still not looking at him but could feel his stare at the side of her face. The adults were chatting and the kids were having fun, but all she wanted to do was run away as far as her legs would carry her.
"Baby girl what's wrong?" Mrs. Jones asked as she noticed Mercedes being exceptionally quiet.
"Nothing momma, I'm just not hungry that's all. If I may be excused I'd like to start on my chores." Mercedes asked politely.
"Actually not much cleaning for today. I've finished dusting and all the kids helped clean their rooms and bathrooms. The floors don't need scrubbing for another week I guess. But I was hoping you could run some errands for me while we're out." Mrs. Evans iterated.
"Yes Mrs. Evans I can do that for you. What errands do you have that needs doing?" Mercedes asked.
"I already made a list; I'll give it to you after breakfast." Mrs. Evans smiled and continued her conversation with her husband and Sissy.
Mr. and Mrs. Evans said goodbye to their children and told them that they'll be back in the afternoon. Mrs. Jones told her children to behave and be respectful of other people's things. Mrs. Jones hugged her children goodbye and told Mercedes to keep an extra eye on her siblings. Mercedes smiled at her mother's statement and told her to have fun.
"Here's the list Mercedes. Just some dry cleaning and donations for drop off, then some grocery shopping for Halloween. I can't believe its next week and I haven't even started organizing our costumes for the party." Mrs. Evans read the list.
"That sounds like fun." Mercedes commented.
"Well you'll be there so you can tell me if it's fun." Mrs. Evans winked.
"I don't think I'm available for Halloween, the kids and I usually go trick or treating. It's their favorite holiday I don't think I can disappoint them." Mercedes explained.
"Honey , your momma, Mikey and Katie will be there too. This luncheon is to discuss about the Halloween fund raiser. There will be plenty of time for the kids to go trick or treating before the party actually starts and they will get lots of candies at the party too." Mrs. Evans looked over to Mrs. Jones and the two women chuckled.
"Sorry I forgot to mention it baby girl. You were so focused on your studies I didn't want to interrupt you." Mrs. Jones apologized to her daughter.
"It's ok momma. So is there anything else besides the list Mrs. Evans?" Mercedes asked.
"Yeah, I don't think I have time to bring Stevie and Stacie shopping for their costumes, would you be a dear and help them pick out one?" Mrs. Evans asked.
"Sure I'd be happy to." Mercedes smiled.
"Now for money and transportation Sam will come along and drive you guys around and pay for everything with his card. I told Sam to bring the kids to the play barn for an afternoon snack and playtime; I think Mikey and Katie would love it there as much as Stevie and Stacie does. Well we better get a move on. You guys have our numbers just call us if anything happens." Mrs. Evans winked at Mercedes before turning around to leave.
"Oh, and don't forget to heat the lasagna for 25 minutes before serving it for lunch. I'll see you guys later." Mrs. Jones waved to her daughter and followed Sanders and Lynda out.
Mercedes went back to the dining room to start clearing out the table. Sam was already busy gathering the plates and bringing them in the kitchen when Mercedes arrived. The kids were hot on his heels with their own plates in tow. Mercedes decided to wipe down the dining table and let Sam and the kids handle the washing up. Once the dining room was spotless, Mercedes decided to check up on the others in the kitchen. Mercedes entered the kitchen in chaos; the kids were running around trying to put soap suds on each other while Sam tried his hardest to gather as much suds and placing them in the sink. The dishwasher was overflowing and no one has thought of turning the machine off. Mercedes marched over to the dishwasher and pulled the plug. The machine stopped spitting suds but the damage was already done.
"You and you get the mop out of the closet." Mercedes pointed to Stevie and Mikey.
"You two go upstairs and clean yourselves." Mercedes ordered Stacie and Katie.
"And you mister will mop this up while I clean the kids up. This floor better be spotless when I get back." Mercedes pulled Stevie and Mikey with her leaving Sam to clean up the mess.
Sam tried to dump as much of the remaining suds in the sink and then started mopping the wetness away. Sam was almost done with the mopping when Mercedes returned.
"I thought I told you that it better be spotless here by the time I get back?" Mercedes teased.
"Well it's harder than it looks. I try to flush the suds down the drain but the more water I put the bigger it gets." Sam pouted as he continued to mop the floor.
Mercedes pushed Sam out of the way and grabbed the mop out of his hands.
"Leave it to the professional. You can help the kids get ready; we're leaving as soon as I'm done with the mopping." Mercedes continued with the mopping as Sam left to go to the kids.
Sam ran up the stairs and walked in the room in the middle of a pillow fight. The kids were running around each armed with their own pillow as a weapon. Sam was immediately attacked and the kids were giggling as he pleaded mercy, surrendering from their attack.
"Sam, you're not suppose to call Mercy. She'll kill us if she finds out we haven't gotten ready yet." Stacie said in between giggles.
"Our sister will not only kill us but she won't let us come back here, ever!" Mikey exaggerated.
"Well we can't have that can we? Let's get things cleaned up and ready before she finds out." Sam encouraged the kids and soon they were dressed and ready to go.
Sam and the kids marched down to the kitchen to see if Mercedes was ready to leave. They walked in the kitchen to find Mercedes wiping down the counters and the kitchen in pristine condition.
"Don't come in! The floor's still wet; wait for me in the foyer." Mercedes said as she wiped her hands dry with a towel.
Sam and the kids waited in the foyer and soon Mercedes walked out with clothes and the list Mrs. Evans gave her in hand. Sam quickly grabbed the clothes off Mercedes and led them out to the parked SUV. Sam opened the doors to let the kids in. The boys climbed at the 3rd row seats while the girls sat in the middle. Sam opened the door for Mercedes and as she was about to climb in turned around to look at Sam.
"We forgot the donation box. I'll only be a minute." Mercedes was about to leave when Sam stopped her.
"I'll do it. I know where it is!" Sam quickly ran in the garage.
They were finally done with their errands except for the grocery list. They stopped at the gourmet food mart and grabbed a cart as they walk in. Sam noticed Mercedes to be rolling her eyes a lot as she eyed the prices. Finally she couldn't stand it anymore when she saw the price of a slice of duck liver.
"The prices are ridiculous here. You know how many cans of this I can buy for this price? I would understand if it was a different brand but it's exactly the same only I'm paying twice as much since I am buying it in the nice part of town. I should bring your mother to the farmer's market and Costco next week, with the budget you have for food she can buy at least a month's worth. " Sam smiled at how adorable Mercedes was with her ranting.
They walked in the snacks aisle and Sam told the kids to get what they wanted. Stevie and Stacie grabbed everything they wanted while Mikey and Katie stayed next to their sister.
"Hey you two, why are you standing there? Go get whatever you want, I don't think Stevie and Stacie will share." Sam called for Mikey and Katie.
The kids looked up to their sister waiting for her approval.
"Go on, but just take one each and don't get the really expensive ones." Mercedes told her siblings.
"Let them get whatever they want Sid, mom said it's ok." Sam smiled.
"Thanks but I don't think they can finish it all."
"Then they can take them home. Just let the kids have their fun. It's my mom that's paying anyway and you know how she gets when you refuse her." Sam gave Mercedes a look that says you should know.
Mercedes shrugged and let her siblings get whatever they want. The kids were in a mad dash trying to get as much as they can.
"Hey remember there are starving children in the world, so have that in mind when you pick your treats." Mercedes shouted at the children from the end of the aisle.
Sam shook his head at Mercedes and started pushing the cart following the kids.
They finally got everything on their grocery list and after Sam paid for the groceries they headed back home for lunch.
Sam and the kids put away the groceries while Mercedes reheated the lasagna and started making salad. As soon as they were done putting away the groceries Mercedes asked them to set the table and wash up for lunch.
"Momma Jones' lasagna is amazing!" Sam complimented as he served himself a second helping.
"Momma's cookings the best!" Mikey added.
"I want seconds too." Stevie stated.
"You guys can have as much as you want but remember to leave room for dessert." Mercedes smiled.
"We're done!" Stacie and Katie said in unison followed by giggling.
"Alright come and help me get the dessert while the boys finish their lunch." Mercedes left the table and walked to the kitchen followed by Stacie and Katie.
Mercedes came back in the dining room with bowls and ice cream in hand while Stacie and Katie carried various toppings for the ice cream. Sam and the boys just barely finished their meal when the girls entered. The kids enjoyed creating their own ice cream sundae asking for more chocolate sauce or more whipped cream. Mercedes was smiling at how happy the kids are, she can't help but be touched at how the Evans family are treating her own family. Mercedes was still smiling as she turned to Sam to offer him some dessert. Sam himself was smiling from ear to ear seeing his siblings interact with Mercedes and her siblings. He knew how important family is to Mercedes and that's one of the main things they have in common. Mercedes looked so beautiful when she smiles and he can't help the skip in his heartbeat whenever that smile turns to him. When Mercedes turned towards him and flashed Sam her beautiful smile, Sam's brain went to mush and couldn't utter a word when she offered him some ice cream.
"Sam are you alright? I asked if you want me to scoop you some ice cream." Mercedes asked.
Sam still couldn't make himself voice out an answer so instead nodded his head to answer yes. Mercedes chuckled at Sam and went to place 3 scoops of ice cream in a bowl and handed it to Sam.
"I'm sure you can handle the toppings yourself." Mercedes smiled and got up to put the ice cream back in the freezer.
"Sammy and Mercy sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G!" Stacie and Katie chanted as soon as Mercedes went in the kitchen.
Sam glared at the two girls shocked that they could see right through him so easily.
"Shut it Stacie. Sam would never kiss a girl even if it's Mercy. That's ikky!" Stevie shouted.
"My sister would never kiss Sam, she doesn't like boys except for Kurt!" Mikey added.
"Mercy would definitely kiss Sam, he's cute and tall and nice just like prince charming. Mercy looked like a princess last time so Sammy would be her prince charming." Katie said softly which soon earned a giggle from both girls.
Sam blushed at the thought of kissing Mercedes. He knew he's been avoiding the situation as much as Mercedes has and if Mercedes won't address it then he has to do something about it.
"You guys stay here and finish your dessert. I... Uhmmm... I'm going to help Mercedes clean up." Sam started grabbing their plates and rushed to the kitchen.
Sam walked in the kitchen to see Mercedes already tidying and filling up the dishwasher with pots and pans from earlier. Sam walked up to Mercedes' side which startled her.
"Sorry didn't mean to make you jump." Sam apologized.
"No it's ok I just didn't think you guys would be done with dessert so soon." Mercedes took the plates from Sam and started rinsing them before putting them in the dishwasher.
"I can do that." Sam offered.
"Yeah like this morning." Mercedes chuckled.
"Hey that's trial and error, I tried it failed horribly wrong and now I've learned my lesson. So I think I can handle the dishwasher from here on out." Sam smiled.
"Ok mister if you insist. But I'm telling you if you mess it up again you'll be hearing about it from here on out." Mercedes laughed as she handed the plate to Sam.
Mercedes left Sam to do the dishes on his own but she kept an eye on him as she started wiping the counters and stove. Sam successfully loaded the dishwasher without a glitch. Mercedes gave him an impressed look which made him feel prouder of his achievement. Soon the kids were in the kitchen with the used bowls in hand.
"Sammy your ice cream was melting. We didn't want to waste the ice cream so we helped ourselves." Stevie grinned at his brother.
"How long before I was gone before you little monsters attacked my ice cream?" Sam teased.
"Uhmmm... You've been gone a long time, it was almost soup looking." Stacie told her older brother.
Sam shook his head not believing their story but he didn't mind at all.
"Here let me take those and the four of you clean up yourselves and take a rest while I finish cleaning up down here. We're going to the mall at 2 for some Halloween costume shopping and then to the play barn." Mercedes told the kids.
"Yey playbarn! You'll love it there it's even better than the one we went to last time!" Stacie excitedly told Katie.
"Really? I can't wait!" Katie exclaimed.
Stevie and Mikey were already out the kitchen by the time Stacie and Katie went out skipping hand in hand. Mercedes and Sam smiled at how adorable both girls looked. Sam turned to Mercedes and suddenly had a lump in his throat as he thought this was a good time as ever to ask Mercedes about their kiss.
"Mercedes!" Sam swallowed as he waited for Mercedes to respond.
"Yes Sam?" Mercedes answered casually which made Sam more nervous.
"Uhmmm... We need to talk about the kiss." Sam blurted.
Mercedes stood frozen on the spot thankful she wasn't holding anything otherwise she would have dropped it by now. Mercedes shook herself out of the temporary paralysis and started washing the bowls to avoid turning around to look at Sam.
"Yes what about it?" Mercedes answered nonchalantly.
"Well, I don't know, I guess I want to know why you ran away afterwards. I actually thought you felt the same way as I did when you kissed me back but then you ran away." Sam sounded hurt and Mercedes wanted to reassure him it wasn't his fault but she felt too embarrassed to look at him let alone tell him what she really felt that night.
There was dead silence as Mercedes finished washing the bowls and placed them on the drying rack. She took her time drying her hands as Sam waited patiently for her response. Mercedes finally turned to look at Sam and saw the sullen look on his face. Mercedes knew she owed him an explanation, she owed him that much just to ease a little of the hurt she seem to have caused him.
"I was embarrassed Sam. It was my first kiss and the way I acted made me question my morals." Mercedes finally explained as she trained her eyes on the floor.
Sam felt all his worries vanish as he looked at the girl confessing in front of him.
"I mean I didn't want you to think I do that all the time. It's not like I've been going around aggressively kissing guys all the time and pressing myself on them. Oh God it sounds even worse out of my head." Mercedes put her face in her hands and shook her head in disbelief.
"It wasn't like that at all." Sam pulled Mercedes' hands away from her face and tilted her chin up with his index finger.
Mercedes looked at those sincere green orbs and suddenly she felt relaxed like nothing she said earlier happened. She was transported back that night and how much she wanted to kiss those pink lips of his. Sam stared back with a smile on his face, he wanted so much to attack her plump lips but opted not to scare her and bring more of her insecurities.
"I'm sorry Sam. I didn't mean to run away or ignore you. I needed time to think and prepare for my GED without distraction. If it was any consolation I thought about you everyday." Mercedes felt the heat rise up to her face as she tried to turn away from Sam.
Sam pulled her in a hug and held on to her tightly. Mercedes melted in his arms as her heartbeat synchronized with his. She soon found herself wrapping her arms around his waist as she inhaled his scent trying to make a memory of the moment. Sam was doing the exact same thing smelling her hair taking a mental picture of them together like this. Sam loosen his grip on Mercedes and lifted her chin up to look at him. Mercedes looked up and smiled at Sam. Sam felt himself lower his head to kiss Mercedes as soon as he saw her smile. Mercedes felt the urge to meet Sam halfway as she slowly reached up to him on her tiptoes. Their lips met for the second time and like the first, it felt magical. Fireworks seemed to dance above them as their tongues battled for dominance. Sam found his hand one at the back of Mercedes' head and the other wrapped around her waist. Mercedes had her hand grabbing Sam's hair pulling him closer and the other gripping his shoulder. Mercedes felt the heat ignite in her body and once again found herself battling her inner self to stop whatever she was doing. Sam felt Mercedes tense up and decided to stop the kiss and pulled her in a tight embrace. Sam held Mercedes as if to let her know that everything's ok. Mercedes appreciated how Sam could comfort her like that. After the talk with Mrs. Evans she understood what her body was reacting to, but still it gave her no comfort as she's still new to all these feelings Sam seem to be unleashing inside of her.
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. I seem to be messing things more than fixing it." Sam released Mercedes and held her at arms length.
"No please it's just me being silly." Mercedes replied.
"I want to do right by you, I want to do things the proper way." Mercedes looked at Sam confused at where he was going with it.
Sam saw the look Mercedes was giving him and couldn't help himself laugh at her reaction.
"I'm sorry. I think I'm being very vague as well. Let me start. Mercedes Jones I want to date you. I want to take you out for a meal and maybe a movie and then coffee afterwards. I want to pick you up at your house and tell your momma my intentions so she can threaten me if ever I hurt you. I want to take you home afterwards to get a goodnight kiss. I want to wake up knowing I'll be seeing you soon and sleep at night with you as the last thought on my mind. I want to meet your friends and let them give me a hard time since I'm dating their friend. I want all of that with you." Mercedes was stunned with her mouth slightly open with Sam's confession.
She knew she wanted those things with him as well but wondered if he wasn't as scared as she is to admitting to all of those. Mercedes knew their friendship didn't just blossom overnight, but their more than friendship feelings felt like it just happened overnight for her and she didn't believe in fairytale. Mercedes lived her life knowing that nothing comes easy and if it was that simple then there must be something wrong with it. Her skepticism is inhibiting her from fully relishing in this new found emotion.
"Ok that didn't go as well as I thought. Well now that I thought about it, yeah it is scary to hear someone confess all these feelings knowing you are scared of how fast things are going. But just forget I said anything else and think about going on a date with me." Sam plastered a nervous smile as he waited for Mercedes to come out of her trance.
Mercedes finally looked at Sam and smiled.
"Please don't take this the wrong way, but can I think about it after my exams?" Mercedes asked.
"Oh shit! Yeah I forgot about your exams. No just don't worry about it, we'll talk again after your exam. I'm sorry for putting this on you." Sam apologized.
"Stop apologizing will you. I just needed these exams over and done with." Mercedes stood on her toes and placed a kiss on Sam's cheek.
"Mercy and Sammy sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G!" Mercedes and Sam turned to see the kids in the kitchen looking at them.
Stacie and Katie chanting the awful song while Stevie and Mikey looked at them in disgust. Mercedes quickly turned around and walked out the kitchen to the dining room to finish cleaning. Stacie and Katie followed Mercedes and continued to chant. Stevie and Mikey on the other hand walked towards Sam shaking their heads.
"Man I can't believe you let my sister kiss you. You better wash your face or else the cooties will spread." Mikey told Sam.
"Ewww Sam! I like Mercy and all but kissing a girl? I thought you were cool." Stevie added as he shook his head in disbelief.
"Just you two wait. I'll be rubbing this in your faces when you finally kissed a girl." Sam smirked as the two boys looked at each other.
"Not gonna happen!" Stevie and Mikey exclaimed in unison.
