It was a Saturday afternoon and Evernight Academy was quiet and peaceful (for once). Bianca was lying peacefully on her bed when she heard a knock on the door.
"Hey Bianca! It's Balthazar". Bianca wondered how her friend had snuck into the area where the girls dorms were, still she got up and answered the door
"Is Lucas here?" Balthazar asked
"No" Bianca replied "Why?"
"I was just wondering if you wanted to go for a walk"
"Sure". There were a few kids out and about but most were in their dorms.
"Where should we go?" she asked
"Over there" Balthazar pointed to a large gap in the castle wall.
"Why there?" Bianca asked
"It smells nice" Balthazar replied
Back behind the trees Lucas watched his girlfriend and Balthazar. I wonder what his intentions are Lucas thought. He sighed and walked back to where he came from, hoping, begging that Bianca was still his, only his.
Bianca and Balthazar leaned against the castle wall and smiled at each other
"Hey Bianca" Balthazar said "Have i ever told you how beautiful you are?"
Bianca blushed. "No" she said "No you haven't"
"Well you're absolutely gorgeous"
They both laughed and talked for a while until it was late and they had to return to the dorms.
"It's nice being with you Bianca" Balthazar said
"Sam" Bianca smiled.
Back at the dorms Lucas was waiting outside Bianca's dorm. He stood when she turned the corner
"Lucas?" Bianca was shocked, surprised and happy to see him
"I... I saw you with Balthazar" Lucas mumbled
"I just wanted to know...is there anything...we're still..."
"Don't even think about that, I'm yours only yours"
Lucas stood up "Ok good" he said he walked over to Bianca and kissed her softly
"I love you" he said
"I love you too"
Lucas left satisfied but Bianca couldn't help but wonder if maybe she did love Balthazar.
