Hannah Montana – What I Go To School For, And What I Don't

Chapter 28 – Sadie Hawkins Dance

"I can't believe it's been two months and nothing drastically important has happened." Miley said, sitting at the Jonases' kitchen table, ignoring her homework.

"I can't believe we only have two weeks left of freshman year." Katie replied.

"I can't believe the freshman Sadie Hawkins dance is Friday and nobody's asked me!" Oliver cried.

"I can't believe you guys aren't studying for finals." Joe said, looking around at the crowded table. Every book and binder was closed except his.

"Screw finals! I need a date or I'll be a social outcast!" Oliver cried desperately.

"I don't have a date either, and I'm not flipping out." Miley pointed out.

"You and Oliver should go together!" Lily suggested.

"NO!" Miley and Oliver cried.

"They extinguished that fire a long time ago, and they're not rekindling it." Katie said.

"Personification!" Nick cried.

"Yup!" Katie smiled. "See Joe, we are studying."

Miley tossed and turned all night. When Lily had suggested that she go to the dance with Oliver, she'd considered it briefly.

Was she starting to like Oliver again?

"Well, there's only one way to find out." Miley decided, and finally fell asleep.

Miley marched up to Oliver the next morning. She'd been building up her confidence all morning.

"Hey Oliver…will you go to Sadie Hawkins with me?" She asked, surprised that she'd managed to say the words so fearlessly.

"Yes!" He cried. "Thank you Miley, you are such a good friend to save me from my dateless misery!" He hugged her and ran to his locker excitedly.

So Oliver's feelings hadn't changed. "So much for that." Miley grumbled.

"No! You still don't match!" Lily crossed her arms. Joe had been through five different outfits, and they were now twenty minutes late for the dance.

"Not matching is like my trademark." Joe replied.

"I'll help you Joe." Katie laughed.

"See, Katie knows how to make both of us happy." Lily smiled.

Katie and Joe went upstairs and into Joe's room.

"If I hadn't been in Jackson's room before, I would be scared right now." Katie looked around at the piles of clothes and shoes lying around on Joe's floor. "You're okay for the most part. Just get rid of the tie, let me find different shoes and a hat." She instructed.

"Fine." Joe sighed as Katie handed him a white hat to match his white shirt and white lace up Vans.

"Can we go now?" Joe pleaded when they went back downstairs.

"Yes." Lily smiled contentedly.

They arrived at the dance and went into the gym.

"Where have you been?" Miley and Oliver immediately came over.

"Wardrobe issues." Joe rolled his eyes. "I am like the only junior here…" He looked around.

"Well duh, it's a freshman dance. Anybody else could only get in if their date was a freshman." Miley replied.

"Hey guys!" Becca walked over to the group.

"Hey Becca!" Everybody said.

"So what are your guy's plans this summer?" She asked.

"We're all going to be councilors at Frankie's summer camp." Oliver replied.

"Wow fun!" Becca said.

"What about you?" Joe asked.

"My family's going to Yellowstone for two weeks." Becca shrugged.

A guy came up to Becca. "Hey, want to dance?" He asked.

"Sure!" Becca smiled and followed him to the dance floor.

"Oh we all have to dance to this one." Joe said as he recognized the song, and pulled Lily to the dance floor. Nick and Katie walked over too.

"Well, would you like to dance?" Oliver asked Miley.

"Of course!" She replied.

Oliver led her to an area away from the rest of their friends.

It was a slow song, which Miley eventually recognized as "Like A Star" by Corinne Bailey Rae.

You've got this look I can't describe,
You make me feel I'm alive,
When everything else is au faite,
Without a doubt you're on my side,
Heaven has been away too long,
Can't find the words to write this song

I have come to understand
The way it is,
It's not a secret anymore,
'cause we've been through that before,
From tonight I know that you're the only one,
I've been confused and in the dark,
Now I understand, Yeah

Miley and Oliver leaned forward, both knowing someone should interrupt. Yet no one did.

They kissed, for the first time in over a year.

Talk about confused.


A/N: Sorry it's kind of short! Don't worry, I promise there will be a sequel. It's going to be called Camp Disaster. As mentioned in the chapter, the group will be spending the summer as councilors at a summer camp. But where's the drama you all love me for? The three camp queens are worried that the new councilors will take over the camp. Meanwhile, Miley and Oliver still can't figure out their feelings for each other.

Hope you guys read it! I've been planning this since before I started this story.
