A/N: Well this is it.

It's over.

No more.

I think I'm gonna cry.

It's in Gwen's view, too, by the way.

Chapter Thirteen

"Well, Kevin?"

This is it. I've got him.

The best way to get through Kevin's stubborn ways: confuse him.

His eyes widen in horror. He knows I've made a point.

But if I know anything about Kevin, it's that he won't give up without a fight.

"G-Gwen, it's-it's different," he stutters, rubbing the back of his neck.

"And how exactly is it?" I ask, an eyebrow raised.


"Kevin, your not getting anywhere babbling like an idiot." I place a hand on my hip. "If you haven't noticed, I'm not convinced that you don't deserve me, so-"

"You know what, Gwen? I don't have to explain my thoughts to you!"

Oops. Now he's pissed.

But it's not like I'm not.

"Oh really? But you can pretty much pounce me on your couch and come right mighty close to-"

"Whoa! He did what now?" Ben called from across the way, flying over a group of Forever Knights.

"Stay out of it, Tennyson!" Kevin yelled back.

"Hold up, buddy." I grab his chin and pull his face back into my direction. "You're argument is with me."

"What do you want, Gwen?" he pleaded. "Don't you see that I'm only looking out for what's best for you?"

A knight knocks into Kevin from behind. I sling the culpret into a nearby wall.

"Uh...thanks," he mumbles.


"What, Gwen? You know it's true. I'm the last thing that you need in your life."

"Kevin, don't you get it?" My voice is softer. I feel those earlier tears coming back on.

"What am I supposed to get?"

"Kevin," the tears are falling now, "you're the only thing that I need in my life."

"Oh, Gwen, don't do this to me." He looks to his feet, trying to hide the pain in his face from me.

Maybe I underestimated him.

Kevin's determined.

And he would sacrifice his happiness so that I could have what he considered best for me.

But he's missing one important thing.

He is what's best for me.

I love him.


"Gwen, please." He turns his back to me. "You have no idea how much this-"

"How much this what? Hurts? Oh I have an idea, Kevin!"

"Gwen, it's just a crush. You'll get over me and find a guy that-"

"No, Kevin, it's not a crush." I grab him by his shoulder and jerk him around. "I'm in love with you, and if you're too much of a coward to trust yourself then-"

I feel a sudden pressure against my lips, then Kevin's arms pulling me closer to him. I grip onto his shirt. Then the pressure is gone.

"You're gonna be the death of me, you know," he whispers, tucking a stray hair of mine behind my ear.

"If you're lucky," I reply and pull his face back to mine.

"But if I-"

"Kevin, don't start."

He gives in and starts to kiss me again.

"Um...guys, we're in a middle of a fight here," I think I hear Ben call.

No reply.
