Lauren cried and cried in her room. Danny just broken up with her. On their three month anniversary. That was low. She kept telling herself that he was a jerk. But it definitely wasn't working. She was crying so bad that she didn't notice someone coming in and rubbing her back soothingly until they actually started speaking. "What's wrong?"
It was Jez. Lauren's gay, crazy talented friend. She sighed and managed to whisper, "Danny left me for Claudine."
"What?" he said, shocked and suddenly stopped rubbing her back. "He left - what?!"
"I know. I saw them kissing. I pretended nothing happened but when we came back here, he dumped me." Lauren explained. Suddenly Jez pulled her to his embrace and she started crying on his shoulder. "He dumped me."
"Shh. You'll be alright." Jez whispered with his lips pressed on her hair.
"How do you know?"
"Because you are beautiful, smart and talented. If I wasn't gay, I would.." he started but he suddenly blushed when he realised what he was saying.
"You would what?"
Jez took a deep breath. "I would ask you out."
"Oh." Lauren said awkwardly. "Huh."
"Yeah." he replied.
What they weren't prepared for was Lauren's response. She pulled away from him and leaned in. Their lips met. It was pretty innocent, almost kiddy. But they both enjoyed it. When Jez suddenly wanted to go further, Lauren pulled away. "I thought you were gay."
"So did I." Jez said and he wrapped his arms around her waist and leaned in to kiss her. All of a sudden, they were kissing. They both felt chemistry. They both suddenly felt that electricity that cheesy movies talked about; the electricity that they felt when they danced together. Jez gently pushed her down the bed and Lauren locked her arms around his neck and wrapped her legs around his waist. They kept kissing until they heard Lola's voice scream, "Oh my god!!! Jez and Lauren are snogging! Jez and Lauren are snogging!"
Odd couple, I know. But I felt compelled to write a JEZ/LAUREN story ever since I saw them dance together in BB's song, Confessions.
