Disclaimer: I don't own shake it up or it's characters. I'm awesome but not THAT awesome.
Oh and as you guys know this story is up for adoption (as well as my other WIPs) But at the moment I'm re-writing all of them to fix all my typos and other amateur-ish mistakes. Cheers!
"I feel kinda bad about hiding 'us' to everyone." I say in a thoughtful voice.
"Cece, we don't have to hide this. You're the one who went all 'No Ty! We can't tell them because they'll freak out!' "He looks at me knowingly.
"I know...I was there..." I sneer in a defeated voice.
"AND I sound nothing like that." I said crossing my arms and pouting.
He chuckles "You're so cute." He smiles his dimpled smile.
He taps my nose with his pointer finger. I slap it away; irritated.
"I'm mad at you." I say in a snippy tone.
"Aw... Why?" He makes an adorable face. I look away, determined not to give in into his cuteness.
"Because, you're annoying." I say childishly.
"I think I know how to make you forgive me."
"Oh yeah? How do-"
He cuts me off by pressing his lips to mine. I respond to him eagerly and I eventually get into it. We were on his bed and he was lying on top of me. His weight was kind of bothering me but the closeness felt nice. I suddenly remember why we started making out.
I abruptly push him away.
"Are you ok? What's wrong?" He worriedly asks.
"You seriously think I would've forgiven you by face raping me? You didn't even let me go up for air the whole time. Oxygen Ty - girls need them to live too." I said dramatically in breathy intervals.
"Face rape? Are you serious? Plus, I don't think that counts when the so-called 'victim' was willing and reciprocating."
I open my mouth to say a witty retort, but I close it right back when I realize I couldn't think of anything to say. Damn it. So I roll my eyes and stick my tongue out.
Ty and I have been dating for almost a couple of months now but I wanted to keep it a secret for a little while. I guess it's because this way it's just "our" thing. No one else would be involved. And I'm scared that Rocky might not approve. I mean she's my best friend AND she's Ty's sister. Anyone else's opinion, I couldn't care less. Rocky's opinion is the only one that matters to me.
Plus, this hiding stuff is exciting. We haven't been caught yet or caused any suspicion. I personally think it's me and my ninja skills.
"Ok, fine. I'm sorry. Can I kiss you or 'face rape' you again? Whichever you prefer?" He says sincerely with a hint of amusement.
I stare at him in suspicion.
I give a tiny nod "... As you were..." I say hesitantly.
And so our lips met once again.
Suddenly there was a bang on the wall. Cece and I looked at the door simultaneously. And there stood a wide-eyed Deuce.
I was frozen in shock. Then bam! I was callously pushed off MY bed, landed on my back and hit my head on the floor.
"It is sooo not what it looks like!" Cece shrieks unconvincingly.
"I'm fine by the way! Don't worry; the floor totally broke my fall." I said bitterly.
Cece shoots me an apologetic look.
Deuce finally gains composure then looks at Cece. "So you're telling me that you and Ty weren't just making out on his bed? He says in a monotone voice; clearly not swayed. I got up and sat on the bed next to Cece.
"No! No... We were just talking... really closely, while Ty was on top of me...?" It sounded as if even Cece didn't believe herself.
I turned my head away from Deuce and I gave Cece a questioning look. She shrugs her shoulders with an expression that says "What the hell was I supposed to say?" I respond with an expression that says "I don't know! But did you honestly think that anyone would believe that?" Yeah, that's right. I got all of that in one look.
"You guys DO know that I'm still here right?" Deuce breaks us out of our not so secret silent squabbling.
"Ok Deuce. I guess you deserve the truth. And well, because there's no point in hiding this anymore." I look at Cece and she nods, giving her agreement.
He gives a small nod.
"But you have to promise not freak out ok?" I say slowly.
"Trust me. I won't freak." He says seriously.
"Ok... Cece and I are together. And we have been together for quite a while now." I stared at Cece, admiring her as I spoke.
Deuce seemed pretty calm about this. Come to think of it, he's been calm this whole time. Maybe he IS okay with this.
He clears his throat.
"... WHAT?..." He roars irately.
Okay. I think I spoke too soon.
"Dude! What the hell is wrong with you? That's Cece man! I mean-"Cece cuts him off.
"HEY! I know you don't like me like that but I'm right here and I DO have feelings..." She screams, looking really offended.
"Yeah! That's my girl you're talking about!" I say angrily.
"Geez... Chill guys! I just mean, Cece aren't you a little young to be dating Ty? And Ty, Cece is Rocky's best friend and you are her older brother! OLDER BROTHER. Man I can't wait to see her face when she finds out about this." He starts to leave.
Cece and I freak out and start to run after him. Cece got to him first and was a little too aggressive that she managed to tackle him to the ground.
"Oof!" Now he knows just exactly how the floor broke my fall. Not so funny now when it happens to you does it?
He gets up but Cece hangs on like her life depended on it. He tries to walk but has trouble doing so. Cece has her legs coiled around his left leg, her right arm on his right ankle and her left arm around his neck. I would help, but this is just too entertaining. Deuce attempts to push her off him but epically fails as he tries again and again.
They fall to the ground with Cece on top. She starts to pull his hair. What the hell is she doing? Tsk tsk tsk... I think I've let this go on a little too long.
"Get off of me!" He says in a strained voice.
"Yeah, you should get off of him... He looks like he's constipated." She calms down and stands up. Cece might look thin and tiny but she is heavier than she looks.
"Look Deuce, you can't tell Rocky." I say as he slowly stands up.
"Why not?" He asks in a whiny voice. Wow, he and Rocky has definitely been spending too much time together. They even whine alike.
"You just said so yourself. Rocky will go crazy on us. You're not even related to me or Rocky's best friend and look how YOU reacted. 'Trust me, I won't freak.' Pssh yeah right my ass." I use his words against him.
"Ok..." He says. Cece and I were instantly relieved.
Deuce suddenly sprints out and heads for our door.
Wow this guy just doesn't learn his lesson, does he?
I ran as fast as I could then I slammed against him and he slammed against the door. He suddenly falls on the floor with an agonized expression. What's wrong with him? I notice that he's got both of his hands on his crotch... Oh! Oh. Oops! I guess when I slammed him on the door; he slammed onto the door knob...
"Dude... I am sooo sorry." I try to say as serious as I could but his facials are just too funny!
His reply was along the lines of "Aghm gnna git yu!" (I'm gonna get you!)
Ty was laughing but he had a pained look on his face. I guess he sort of feels for Deuce, considering he knew how much it would've hurt if it was him.
After some ice and awkward silence on the couch, someone finally spoke up.
"So...why did you guys keep your relationship a secret anyway?" Deuce asks quietly.
"I take it that your little friend isn't hurting anymore?" I joke. Ty snickers
Deuce shoots daggers at us. We stop and clear our throats.
"First of all, just so we're clear. My 'friend' is not little." Deuce says a little too confidently.
"Second of all, yes it doesn't hurt as much anymore. And thirdly, you didn't answer my question." He looks at us expectantly.
Ty looks at me and motions for me to explain.
"Ok here it is. I guess, we're just afraid of what you guys might think of us; especially Rocky. What if, she doesn't like the fact that I'm dating her brother or that Ty is dating her best friend?" I say sincerely.
"But you don't know that. She would probably be more mad that you hid it from her."
"We know. But for every day that passes, it gets harder to tell the truth." Ty speaks up.
"How long have you guys been together anyway?"
"Uh, like six to seven weeks..." I say and Ty nods in agreement.
Deuce eyes widened.
"That long? You hid your relationship for that long?"
"Well not everybody is like you and Rocky who publically becomes a couple within a few hours." I counter.
"Hey! You're the one who set us up!"
"I know. I'm just saying..."
"Look guys, after the tackling, hair pulling and ...bruising..." He cringes and looks down.
"I've thought about it and I'm okay with your relationship. I give you my blessing." He says the last part in a fatherly voice.
Ty scoffs "Like we needed your blessing..." He rolled his eyes as he spoke.
"I bet it was the bruising that convinced you. Am I right?" I tease. It's Deuce that rolls his eyes this time.
"BUT, you guys have to tell Rocky as soon as you can. Or I'll have to tell her." Ahh so there's the catch.
"I liked you better when you weren't dating my sister." Ty says.
I nod "Yeah me too..." I say to Ty.
"He's become some kind of a suck up ever since..." I say, still talking to Ty.
"I'M RIGHT HERE." He says in an irritated voice.
We clear our throats once again. I feel like we're children being lectured...
"Huh..." Deuce suddenly voices.
"What?" I ask.
"You said that you guys have been going out for six to about seven weeks right?" He says, deep in thought.
"Yeah... We've been dating seven weeks from today, actually." Ty answers. Oh yeah...
"Rocky and I have been going out for seven weeks from today as well." He raises his brow.
"So?" I look at Ty and he seems to be as confused as I am.
"Well, since that day was the best day of my life - and it still is by the way-"
I cut him off. "You don't have to say that when Rocky isn't here you know." He glares at me.
"Anyway, I distinctly remember everything about that day...and the day after it." He gives Ty and me a look.
I really am trying to grasp what he's getting at. But I've got nothing.
My eyes widened as I've realized what Deuce meant. Cece however was still left confused. I laughed nervously and looked anywhere but Deuce or Cece.
"Ty... Do you know what he's talking about?" Cece asks slowly.
"You are such a douche Deuce." I shake my head. He laughs.
"What are you guys talking about? Ty, I know you know! Tell meeee!" She sticks her bottom lip out into a pout.
I sighed and whispered to Cece what Deuce was implying. She suddenly became pale and rigid.
Cece reacts the same way I did. She nervously laughed then avoided eye contact.
"I knew it!" Deuce shouts.
"Shhhh!" Cece hits the back of his head.
"We're the only ones here..." Deuce says.
"Yeah... but still!" Cece was red by this point.
"I know it seems bad from your point of view, but I promise you we didn't do anything." I say
"Well, we DID do things but not what you think we did..." Cece tries to explain.
You're probably wondering what the hell we're talking about. So let me enlighten you.
Flashback – 7 weeks ago
Cece and I were like in our own world. After making out for what seemed like hours, we went in her room just to talk. We got to know each other better and we told stories about our lives. And here I thought I couldn't fall for her any deeper.
*ZZZT ZZZT – ZZZT ZZZT*
My cell phone was vibrating so I excused myself from our conversation to check the text.
'Hey, where R U? I just got home. – Rocky'
Oh man... I must've lost track of time. I check the time on my cell phone to find that it's already 8:45pm.
"Cece, Rocky just got home and she's looking for me. As much as I don't want to leave, I have to." I am without a doubt, gutted to go.
"Don't go. I'm all alone in the house." She pouts.
"Well, I highly doubt my parents will let me stay in your house so-"She cuts me off.
"You don't have to say that you're staying here... Just say that you are staying at a friend's house and won't come home till after tomorrow." She says with a devious smile
"Till after tomorrow? I am starting to like whatever you have in mind!" I say with a laugh.
"Ok, so just tell her that your friend really needs you right now, that it's kind of an emergency."
"Sounds like a fool proof plan..."
"Rocky? It's Ty."
"Hey, where are you?"?
"I'm at... Kevin's house." Cece mouths 'Kevin?' with a raised brow. I shrug my shoulders.
"Kevin...?" She asks uncertain.
"Yeah, Kevin... And well, he really needs me right now and it's kinda an emergency."
"Ty... Will you be totally honest with me...?" She cautiously asks.
"…Why..?" I tensely ask.
"Is Kevin a "close friend" of yours? Cause I've noticed your lack of interest in girls lately…"
It took me a few seconds before I got what she was implying.
"ROCKY! I am not GAY." I say furiously.
"ROCKY! I am not GAY." Ty says angrily. His light tan complexion has turned into a deep red color.
Oh my gosh, he's blushing... I stifled a laugh. I raise my eyebrows at the mention of 'GAY'
He gives me a death stare.
Ty said something and ended their conversation. I couldn't comprehend cause I was too busy trying to muffle my laugh.
"Stop laughing! It isn't funny!"
"Ok, ok! What did she say anyway?" I say, trying to be serious.
"Well she said she'll tell mom. So I can stay here." He smiles.
"No, not about that! Why did she think you were gay? Ooh! I bet she thought Kevin was your gay lover, didn't she?" I questioned with enthusiasm.
"I don't know if I want to stay here anymore, especially if you're just going to make fun of me."
His smile faltered and became into a frown of annoyance. He didn't say anything after that. I guess I have to take matters into my own hands.
I placed my right hand on his left knee and started grazing my right hand on his left arm.
His head shot up after my actions.
"Ty, I'm sorry… I didn't mean to upset you. I just wanted to know what Rocky told you…" I stared into his eyes.
I had no idea what he was thinking and he was still silent. I decided to freak him out a little bit. I moved my hand further up his leg.
"W-w-what are you doing?"His eyes widened at the gesture.
"I'm sorry, cause I've been such a bad, bad girl."I said in the most seductive voice I could conjure up. I tried not to cringe as I did this, because I know I probably look like a total idiot. But it seems to be working.
"I really want to make it up to you…" I said suggestively while maintaining the same voice. I looked up at him under my lashes.
I could almost see his brain turning into mush.
When it looked like he wasn't breathing anymore, I decided to end my act.
"Ty, I was just kidding." I laughed and removed my hands from his body.
He was speechless.
"You are one evil girl, you know that!" He finally speaks.
"Well, you were being all dramatic. And messing with you is just so fun! Plus, as if I'll do something like that. You're not that lucky." I stick my tongue out.
And the rest of the night went on with flirtatious bickering and such.
When it was time to sleep, Ty wasn't sure where to go.
"Uhh, so where am I sleeping? On the couch, Flynn's room, or your floor…?" He asks awkwardly as heads for my door.
"Silly, silly Ty, you're sleeping on my bed." I say.
"This isn't one of your jokes is it?" He asks incredulously.
"Why would it be?" I ask. But in a matter of seconds I realized what he had thought I meant.
"Never mind, don't answer that. Please, just cause we're sleeping on the same bed, doesn't mean we are going to do anything bad! Sheesh! Is that all you think about?"
"Sorry." Ty says quietly, looking embarrassed.
"Don't worry about it, just come on and get back to the bed."
"Ok… But I sorta just sleep in my boxers…" He says shyly.
"Uhh, that's cool… I mean I'm kinda wearing boxers as well. So why can't you right?" I say timidly.
He smiled then turned around. He starts to strip off his shirt and jeans. I gulp. When he turned around I should've started fanning myself cause it was starting to get really hot. I had no idea that Ty had such a chiseled body. He had a rock hard chest and a six-pack. His abs weren't too defined that it was scary; it was just the way I liked it.
"Like what you see?" He asks cockily.
"As a matter of fact, I do. I really, really do." I say with a smile. He stays in his place.
"Get over here already! I'm tired! So turn off the lights and let's go to sleep."
We feel into deep sleep with smiles on our faces.
The next day…
Knock. Knock. Knock.
My arms were securely wrapped around a tiny body. I opened my eyes and saw Cece's head buried into my neck. I gasp and remember everything that has happened yesterday. I thought it was just a vivid dream.
Knock. Knock. Knock.
Huh? What is that? It took me a moment to realize that someone is knocking at Cece's door.
I shake Cece, in effort to wake her up. She doesn't budge. I shake her again and she doesn't wake up but she mumbles "Ty… why you so sexy..." I laughed and said 'Oh man! I can't wait to tell you this when you wake up…'
Cece suddenly sits up and snorts.
"You wish! As if I'd ever say that." I scowl at her and she giggles.
"You were awake all this time?"
"Nah, I only just woke up the first time you shook me. I just pretended to sleep on your second try."
Knock. Knock. Knock.
"I should probably get that." Cece says with a sigh.
"Stay here." She says as an afterthought. I nod my head.
She yelled for the person to wait and told whoever it was the she was coming.
She left her door slightly ajar, so I went ahead and poked my head through it to see who it was.
She opened the door to find Deuce. They talk for a couple of minutes then Deuce leaves. When Cece came back I attacked her with my questions.
"Why did Deuce talk to you? What did he want? What did you guys talk about?" I said without taking a breath.
"Gosh, he just asked if I wanted to double date with him and Rocky."
"Double date? And who would be your date?" I could taste the jealousy in my own tongue.
"I don't know, and I wouldn't need to because I said I didn't want to go. I also told him to leave me alone for the rest of the day with no questions asked as a thank you for hooking him and Rocky up." I smiled at her and gave her a chaste kiss.
We spent the rest of the day just like yesterday. I couldn't have been any happier. My cheeks hurt from my constant smiling. Behind each smile, Cece was the reason.
When I came home it was 7:00pm and Deuce and Rocky were on the couch watching TV.
"What are you doing here?" I look questioningly at Deuce.
"Well we we're supposed to go out tonight but Cece cancelled on us. So we decided to just hang out here." He barely acknowledges my presence. We were friends first man, but when you get a girlfriend you totally forget about me. Typical. What happened to bro's over hoes? (Not that my sister's a hoe)
"Yeah, that was too bad. I really thought Kyle and Cece would've hit it off."
Jealousy ran through me again but I forced myself to keep my reaction neutral.
"Ooh Cece just texted me and asked me to come over! Sorry Deuce, I'm ditching you but I haven't seen her all day. You can hang with Ty right?" She smiles then kisses him on the cheek. At least MY sister knows that you don't forget your friends even when you're dating someone.
She climbed out into out fire escape and proceeded to Cece's place.
I sat next to Deuce. I thought about the couple of days with Cece and how I'm one of the luckiest guys in the world.
"What's gotten you all goofy faced?" Deuce brings me out of my thoughts.
"Huh? Nothing just had a good day today." I smiled.
"Oh yeah, I heard. What did you and you lover Kevin do today?"He asked with a serious expression.
I hit the back of his head. Hard.
"Freakin Rocky…" I muttered. He laughed but apologized right after.
"Deuce can I trust you?"
"Well, today and yesterday I wasn't really with Kevin. I was with this girl I really like and she's the reason behind my goofy smile. I have such a great time with her and she makes my heart pound every time she looks at me. I feel like I've finally found who I'm supposed to be with. You know what I mean?"
"…" My eyes widened as I've realized that I poured my heart out to Deuce.
"Dude, You sure you're not gay?" He laughed it off as I walked off into my room.
"Don't ever mention this to anyone!" I shouted.
End of Flashback.
"So pretty much we just slept on the same bed in our night outfits and made out. Don't jump to conclusions…" I said.
"You still haven't broken your promise right?" Ty asks Deuce.
"Sorry dude. I broke it right after you told me not to. I went to Cece's place to tell the girls. Of course at the time Rocky and I didn't know it was Cece. No wonder Cece thought it was so funny.
"You knew?" Ty screeched. Deuce and I started laughing.
"Whatever, by the way you never really told us what Rocky told you." I say.
"Well, then I guess you'll never know." Ty says bitterly.
After that all was well.
"Deuce, you mind answering a question?"
"No, go ahead."
"What is it about me that just turns you off?"
