Sneaking Around Is Harder Than It Looks…

Emma opened her eyes only to see a harsh sunlight seeping through her basement window. She groaned and reached out for Sean…but he wasn't there.

"Sean?" She called thinking he was in the bathroom.

When she got no reply she slipped on her panties and Sean's hoodie that was lying on the ground. She walked up the stairs to see where he was.

"Sean? Sean, where are you!" She called out again as she walked into the living room.

"I'm in here." He called from the kitchen.

Emma opened the door to the kitchen and smiled leaning against the door frame. Sean was standing at the stove making pancakes. She walked up behind him, wrapped her arms around his waist and kissed his cheek.

"Thought you might need some energy after last night." He said smirking.

"Yeah I do…so how long have you been up?" She asked before kissing his cheek again and then sitting down at the kitchen table.

"For a while. Jay called me about an hour and a half ago." He said smirking.

"Oh so did he yell at you?" She said giggling.

"Nah, he knew I was just kidding. Alex was with him at the time actually…but he told me I have to help him with his car today to make it up to him." He said finishing the pancakes and laying them on the table.

"Oh, I thought you were going to stay here all day." She said disappointed.

Sean smiled.

"Em, baby you know if I could stay with you for forever I would. But I can't. Your parents will be home soon and I don't have an excuse as to where I've been for the past two days."

"I know, I know…it just…sucks." She said pouting.

Sean chuckled and leaned down to kiss her.

-X-

"I wish you didn't have to go." Emma whispered into his neck.

"I know, me too…Jay's picking me up in like two minutes though. He thinks I'm over here working on Simpson's car." He said hugging her tighter.

"I'll miss you."

He smiled.

"I'll miss you too, baby."

"Call me tonight?" She asked turning to kiss his neck.

"Of course...around midnight?"

She smiled.

"Yeah, midnight."

"Ok…Oh…don't forget your hoodie." She said picking it up off her bedroom floor.

He took it and wrapped it around her shoulders.

"You keep it…looks better on you anyways." He said before leaning down and kissing her.

Jay's car horn interrupted their brief goodbye.

"I'll call you later ok?" He said before leaning down and kissing her quickly again.

"Ok…I love you."

He smiled at her.

"I love you too." He said as Jay honked his horn again.

As soon as Emma heard the front door shut she jumped back into bed. She closed her eyes and imagined Sean being there with her. She snuggled deeper into his hoodie and fell back asleep.

-X-

"Dude, what the fuck took you so long?" Jay asked once Sean got in the car.

"Simpson was asking me about what parts he'd need to fix the car, man. God, can't you wait two seconds?" He said hoping Jay'd buy it.

"Oh really? Simpson eh? Cause I thought maybe you were busy screwing Greenpeace or something." He said pulling out of the driveway.

"Dude what the fuck are you talking about?" Sean said trying to play it cool.

"Don't lie Cameron…I saw you two going at it yesterday in the front yard." He said smirking.

"What the hell were you doing there yesterday?" Sean asked trying to avoid the fact that Jay knew.

"Well I thought I'd come pick you up since it was raining and I knew you didn't want to be there with Greenpeace all day. And I saw you two sucking each other's faces off in the yard. Then she jumped on top of you and you carried her somewhere."

"Dude if you…" Sean started.

"Don't worry I won't tell Ellie. Personally on behalf of all guys I just have to say…congratulations man. I mean not only are you fucking two hot chicks but one of them is like virgin central….I don't know man just something about being the first…it's electrifying." Jay said smirking.

"Dude shut up. First off I'm not fucking Ellie. And this thing with Emma, it just started that night at my house. And I was going to break up with Ellie. But then she came to my house with some emotional breakdown or something. And she told me she didn't know what she'd do if anything else bad happened in her life. Dude, you know Ellie cuts. I don't want to be the reason she commits suicide or something. So until Ellie's better me and Em are just trying to keep this a secret. And it's not just about sex…I love her…okay?" Sean said hoping Jay would just keep the comments to himself.

Jay nodded his head.

"Yeah, I know. And I'll keep my mouth shut…on one condition."

Sean rolled his eyes. He knew he was going to have to pay for this somehow.

"What?"

"Well first off, we have a couple of parties at your apartment this summer. I promise not to bring the Montreal Crew again."

"Ok fine, deal." Sean said sighing.

"But there's also a second part...You have to tell me in great detail about everything that's EVER happened between you and Emma."

Sean rolled his eyes.

"No way, man. That's personal…and not really any of your business."

"Ok, fine guess I'll just have to tell Ellie." Jay said smirking knowing that Sean would break.

Sean groaned.

"Fine! I'll tell you, but you can't tell anyone. You can't tell anyone about any of this. Not even when me and Ellie break up." He said looking over at Jay.

"Alright, alright…jeez don't get your panties in a bunch. I won't tell."

'I just hope he's true to his word…if not I'll kill him…' Sean thought.

-X-

Emma groaned when the phone rang. She wanted to kill whoever it was. She was having the best sleep in a long time.

"Hello?" she practically yelled into the phone.

"Whoa, what the heck is your problem?"

Emma sighed.

"Sorry Craig, I was just asleep. So what's up?"

"Nothing really, just bored. I was just wondering what the heck happened between you and Sean yesterday. You never called and told me like you promised."

Emma's heart jumped into her throat. She completely forgot she told Craig. No one was supposed to know…and now Craig knew.

"Oh…uhh…well…nothing." Emma said hoping he'd drop it.

"Yeah, sure…what really happened? Come on you can tell me. I promise not to tell."

Emma sighed.

"Ok but if you tell anyone I'll murder you!" Emma said in a threatening way.

Craig chuckled.

"Alright, alright…I won't tell."

She took a deep breath and told him to whole story.

"Wow, Em see I told you not to worry about it. I knew Sean loved you."

Emma smiled.

"Yeah I guess on some level I did too."

"So I guess I'm not the only one at Degrassi who had a secret affair!" Craig said joking.

"Craig, you know it's not like that!" Emma said ready to yell at him.

"I know, jeez I was just kidding."

Emma heard her cell phone ring. It was Sean's ringer.

"Look Craig I got to go, that's my cell. But we'll talk later, ok?"

"Ok, bye."

Emma hung up her house phone and reached her cell.

"Hey you." She said smiling.

"Hey Sweetcheeks!"

Emma gasped at hearing Jay's voice.

"Give me the fucking phone Jay!" She heard Sean's voice and Jay's laughing.

"Sorry about that Em."

"Sean…I thought you weren't supposed to call when anyone else was around." She said starting to panic a little.

"Yeah…well Jay knows."

Emma's eyes went wide.

"He what!" She yelled at him.

"He knows…I didn't tell him. He saw us in the yard yesterday. But he swears to keep it a secret, ok? I'm sorry." He said thinking she was mad at him.

"It's ok…besides Jay's not the only one. (Emma sighs) Craig knows too."

"How?"

"The night I told you that you had to choose I was scared and worried and I felt guilty. So I went to talk to Craig. I knew he was the only one that would understand. And he called me a few minutes ago wanting to know what happened. So I told him the whole thing. He won't tell either." She said hoping he wouldn't be mad.

Sean sighed.

"Ok…but just don't tell anyone else."

"I won't I promise."

"Ok well I got to go but I'll call you back later. I love you."

Emma smiled.

"I love you too. Bye."

Sean heard Jay going 'aww' in the background and Sean mumbling a 'bye' before he hung up.

'I just hope Jay and Craig keep their word or me and Sean are screwed. Why can't things just be simple?' She asked herself.

"Because when it comes to Sean…things are never simple." She said out loud to herself.

So what do you think? Ugh, sorry it took so long for my update. I've been so busy lately!
