First let me say, I think Benny & Ethan are adorable together.
Okay, so this is my first time posting a story! I hope everyone likes it! Sorry if there's any mistakes or anything. I checked it over like 5 times before I uploaded it. Hoping to see some reviews in the next couple of days! And if people like this one enough, maybe I'll write more? And this is rated M for a reason, only for a few chapters away though. It's mostly a T-rated story though. I guess if you wanna bypass the M-rated stuff, skip chapters 9 & 10! Oops giving hints away already! Enjoy it! Rate & Review please! And sadly, I do not own MBAV or any rights to it. But I am a huge fan of the show !
This story is purely fictional, based on a (fictional) television show. Any relationship between characters and actors likenesses is based on show only. This story is told through the point of views of Benny and Ethan only.
POINT OF VIEW: BENNY
"I can do this," I whispered silently to myself. Of course, it was gonna be awkward. Ethan and I have been best friends since we were six. How am I going to explain this to him? He'll never understand. If I give in and say something, I may lose my best friend forever.
I'm standing by my locker, waiting for Ethan to finish embarrassing himself in front of Sarah. He tends to do that a lot. I smile to myself. He's such a dork. Sarah laughs and walks away, saying she'll see us later. I just nod and smile. Crap. Now he's walking over to me. Act natural.
"I think that went well," Ethan says.
"Dude, that was embarrassing," I respond laughing, "I mean, you babbled so much I don't think she heard a word you were saying."
"You're probably right," he sighs. Now I feel like I let him down. I hate that feeling. He likes her so much, but it's pretty obvious they can't be together. I mean, she'll be 17 forever. Ethan will (eventually) get older than her. At least we're the same age.
"Hey I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend you or anything." That's the best apology I can give him I think.
"It's fine. Hey Benny, you okay? You seem, I don't know, different. Kind of wound up, like you have something on your mind." Crap. This boy knows me so well. Bette r than anyone else, except maybe grandma, but that's only because she can do spells to see how I feel.
"What? Pssh. I am fine. Better than fine. I am great. So, what time you want me to come over today? I can bring some video games."
"Um I guess we can just go straight after school." He's analyzing me again with those dark eyes of his. He knows something serious is going on with me. If only he knew how serious.
POINT OF VIEW – ETHAN
Something is wrong with Benny. I can feel it. We tell each other everything, yet it seems like he's keeping something from me. Why would he? I tell him everything. Ugh this is driving me crazy! I guess I can just ask him when we get to my house after school. He seems pretty serious. I mean, he's acting so hard to act normal.
The whole school day I've been just in a daze, trying to figure out what is wrong with him. I'm tempted to grab his arm and see if I can get a vision of what's wrong. I doubt it would work though. He's not "supernatural" enough half the time, whatever that means.
"Hey Ethan! Wait up!" Rory yells behind me. I turn slowly, already regretting my decision. I have so much on my mind right now; I really don't want to deal with him. Oh well too late.
"I don't see why I have to wait when you've got supernatural speed," I respond.
"Hey, do you know how hard it is to act like a mortal? It's super hard," he replies.
"What do you want Rory?"
"I heard Benny's bringing video games over to your house later. Can I come?" Even becoming a vampire, Rory is still as dorky as ever. Usually I would say yes but with Benny all tense I would rather crack him by myself.
"Not today Rory. Sorry." That might have been a little harsh, but I had to. Benny's my number one priority right now. Not even Sarah could deter me from this.
I turn around and walk away, spotting Benny by a tree, waiting for me as usual. He's watching me intently, like he wants to say something. I smile at him and he smiles back, yet there's something behind that smile.
"Hey Ethan!" Crap. Sarah.
"Hi Sarah," I glance at Benny. His smile is gone, replaced by a deep expression that I can't decipher. He watches me intently.
"So what are my two dorks doing after school?" Ouch. I'm just a dork to her. Maybe Benny's right and I'm not making any progress with her.
"Playing video games, as usual." He's still watching us as I watch him out of the corner of my eye. He's so serious. Benny's never this serious. Ever.
"Fun. Well then I guess I'll talk to you later. Oh, what's up with Benny? He seems so…serious today."
"I wish I knew, Sarah. I wish I knew." She turns and walks away, waving at me. I turn back to Benny and walk over to him. I will find out what is bothering my best friend.
POINT OF VIEW: BENNY
I saw them talking. He seems preoccupied. He didn't pay much attention to her as he usually does. I hope he's okay. As he walks towards me I look at him. That dark hair, those dark eyes. No wonder he's so serious all the time. Just goes with his looks. He's so dorky. But in a cute way. Crap. Stop thinking like that! He doesn't need to know just yet.
"Ready to go?" He's smiling at me. I can't help but smile back.
"Yep. Let's get going."
Well, now we're here. In his room. Alone. Maybe I should just tell him. I think he can tell something's wrong with me. Neither one of us are paying much attention to the video game. He's watching me out of the corner of his eye, hoping I won't notice. I watch him dead on. I'm not hiding anymore. Well, fully anyway.
He turns to me. "Okay what's wrong?"
"Nothing." I sound so monotone. I still watch him.
"Nothing. Yeah right. You are my best friend, and have been my best friend since we were six! Tell me what is wrong. I can feel it. You seem all tense and serious. And you are never serious unless something big is going down. So spill." He sounds so girly. I was trying to find a nicer way to do this, but maybe I should just do it and be done. I may lose my best friend though.
"I can't… I can't tell you yet. You won't understand."
"What won't I understand? I know you better than anyone."
"I know and that's the problem!" I shouted at him. How could I do that to my Ethan? My Ethan? Where did that come from? I get up and lean against his bedroom door, my back to him. "You just won't understand yet. It's… complicated."
I hear him get up and stand next to me, his back against the door. "Try me Benny. I'll understand. I won't freak out or anything. If you're in some trouble or something, let me help." He reaches a hand out to me, but doesn't touch me. I think he's waiting to see if push him away. I won't. I never will.
"Will you still be my best friend if I tell you?" I whisper.
"Of course. We've been friends forever. Whatever you have to say won't change that." He smiles that smile again. Crap. Here goes.
I grab his arm and pull him to me and push him against the door, my body covering his. I'm a little taller than him so this is even more awkward it seems. I wonder what I look like to him. His eyes widen slightly. I smile at him, yet I can tell it's not a good smile. I probably look evil or possessed or something. He still stares at me, his eyes wide, his breathing hard. I lean down to him and whisper, "Do you really want to know what's on my mind now?" He just nods, too scared to speak I guess. I do what I've wanted to do all day, and for quite some time now.
I kiss him.
