So here it is guys, sorry its a bit late. I've been very busy. This is one of my favorite chapters I have written in this story. I hope you like it too! Please review, I love reading them!

After that song ended, Mike took Amanda's hand and led her to the back of the club. Where stray beams of light from the LED laser lights from the DJ's stand lit the entire place up, even the shadows.

The two sat down at a table and each enjoyed a drink.

"I haven't personally thanked you for saving me down there, so thanks a ton Mike"

"No problem"

"I'm stunned that Damon could actually try to pull something like that" Amanda shook her head and tried her best to figure out a reason why he would have done that.


As the two sat just enjoying the company of one another and the music. As Amanda watched the dance floor, Mike glanced over in her direction and saw a mark starting to form on the side of her face from where Damon's hand had hit. It wasn't too noticeable, but it was there.

"Does that hurt?" Mike asked as he took a sip of his mountain dew.

"Does what hurt?"

"The side of your face, it looks like it hurts"

"Oh, it's alright just sore" Amanda answered as she put her hand onto it, but as she did, it made her wince at the pain.

"Follow me, there's a kitchen at the back of this place" Mike said as he got up and helped up Amanda and the two walked towards a door.

Once they got inside the room, Mike flipped the light switch. Amanda sat on the counter as Mike took out a bag he found in one of the labeled cupboards and went to the freezer to get some ice. Mike then took the bag of ice and placed it into Amanda's hands.

"Thanks Mike" Amanda said as she took the bag and slowly placed it onto the bruised area.

"So..." Mike said as he placed a hand onto the back of his neck.

"So what?" Amanda responded as she turned her face to the right to face Mike.

"Are we like...umm"

"Boyfriend and Girlfriend?" Amanda finished his sentence for him.

"Yeah...I don't mean to rush us or anything...but I just..."

"You just what?" Amanda asked as Mike took a seat next to her on the counter. The two of them looked into each other's eyes. Beautiful Icy blue eyes met stunning earthy brown eyes.

"I just...I just" Mike took Amanda's hand in his "I love you"

Amanda just continued to look into his eyes.

"When I saw Damon hit you across the face, Owen had to hold me back from going over to him a punching the living daylights out of him, when we got you and Kelly out of the basement, you asked...that if I said "I love you", and yes, I did say that...and I mean't every word...for the longest time I've..." Mike said and was about to continue on, but was stopped.



"Come here" Amanda said as put the ice pack down and took a handful of Mike's tux and pulled him closer to her. Mike started to lean in and Amanda did too, and before their lips met. The two of them looked at each other in the eyes, before they disappeared under the paper-thin skin. At first the kiss was slow, just taking it's time. It wasn't as rushed as what they had earlier on the dance floor, but now they were alone. A 2 ½ inch thick door blocking off any distraction. After about 15 seconds of kissing, the two of them slowly pulled away. Just leaving their foreheads touch.

"I love you too" Amanda said, and the they each had a smile placed onto their faces.

In the background they could hear a song just about to end.

"We should get out of here" Amanda asked still having her hands on Mike's shoulders.

"I kind of like it here" Mike said with his signature grin on.

Amanda rolled her eyes and jumped off the counter and took Mike's hand and pulled him out of the room.

As the two of them walked hand and hand onto the dance floor, they noticed Kelly and Owen still swaying to the music. As they looked around, it seemed as if once they left the room, it went on pause, everything looked the same, but now there was now one less lonely girl and one less only guy in the room, in the city, in the world, and in the universe.

Mike's POV

It was so weird, in a good way thou. Right now I'm holding the hand of Amanda McKay! The girl I had a crush for years. The girl I would see everyday if not every other day in a ninja suit beside me. The girl, who has changed my life.

I felt as if this was a dream, it was just unbelievable.

Amanda's POV

Mike, the ninja I've known for over a year is now my boyfriend. I remember when he came up to me outside of the school, with that smile I love so much on his face. I remember that day so well, my life changed so much. Yes, I know I somewhat blackmailed my way into the ninja group, but look at us now. Mike, Owen, and I are best friends, and if Mike never would have came up to me, who knows where we would be. Also its a bit...weird...I actually have to thank the Rhymer. When he kidnapped me, I met Mike and Owen, and if I wasn't kidnapped I would probably not be here today, probably just at a cheer leading event, not that I care about that, but here I'm with my true friends.

My POV (3rd Person)

Mike and Amanda looked down at their hands which were entwined together. They both smiled.

Once the stereo stopped with the last of the song, another started. The song was Never Gonna Be Alone by Nickelback.

"May I have this dance with my beautiful girlfriend?" Mike asked.

"Of course you can boyfriend" Amanda said as the two of them picked a spot on the dance floor. Owen and Kelly were just feet away from them, but it seemed as if they were the only ones in the room.

Time, is going by, so much faster than I,
And I'm starting to regret not spending all of it with you.
Now I'm, wondering why, I've kept this bottled inside,
So I'm starting to regret not telling all of this to you.
So if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know...

Mike wrapped his arms around Amanda's waist as Amanda wrapped her arms around his neck. The two of them just looked at each other in the eyes, they couldn't see the colors in them, but the color of their hearts shown through the dim light of the club.

You're never gonna be alone
From this moment on, if you ever feel like letting go,
I won't let you fall...
You're never gonna be alone
I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone.

And now, as long as I can, I'm holding on with both hands,
'Cause forever I believe that there's nothing I could need but you,
So if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know...

Amanda's head was now lying on Mike's chest. It seemed to be relaxing to her. Her eyes were closed as they slowly swayed to the music. Mike's head was resting right next to hers and his eyes were also closed. As if they both had their own world away from everyone else when they close their eyes. So much could be said from one another without even spilling a single word. Just the sound of one another's beating heart could say more then the longest book written history.

You're never gonna be alone
From this moment on, if you ever feel like letting go,
I won't let you fall.
When all hope is gone, I know that you can carry on.
We're gonna see the world out,
I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone.

After a little while, Amanda rose her head from the spot on his chest and looked into his eyes. Mike and Amanda were staring at each other. Almost hypnotized by one another. The two had their foreheads touching one another. Close enough to feel each other breathe. Her blue eyes matched with his brown and their breaths in sync, it was a sort of like a fairytale story.

You've gotta live every single day,
Like it's the only one, what if tomorrow never comes?
Don't let it slip away,
Could be our only one, you know it's only just begun.
Every single day,
Maybe our only one, what if tomorrow never comes?
Tomorrow never comes...

Time, is going by, so much faster than I,
And I'm starting to regret not telling all of this to you.

Mike and Amanda glanced over towards Owen and Kelly who were enjoying a moment of peace, but they noticed that how the distance between Owen and Kelly and them had grew. They moved closer towards the edge of the dance floor. Mike and Amanda then noticed that there was a desert table set up...

The two of them shook their heads and turned their attention back to one another.
"You know, just about a year ago you came up to me outside of school" Amanda said.

"I remember that"

"Just think if you didn't do that, we might not have known each other"

"Tell me about it, just a single action can change your entire future"

You're never gonna be alone
From this moment on, if you ever feel like letting go,
I won't let you fall.
When all hope is gone, I know that you can carry on.
We're gonna see the world out,
I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone.

"And I'm glad that you made that change in our future, cause look at us now"

Mike's smile grew after hearing that. The two of them moved closer to one another and met in a kiss. A loving kiss, a kiss that could not be defined in ink or typed into technology, but felt in the beating hearts of two people, two people who did one simple action, and took that action to heart.

I'm gonna be there always,
I won't be missing one more day,
I'm gonna be there always,
I won't be missing one more day.

That night Amanda and Mike continued to dance the night away, enjoying the feeling of each other's hearts beating in sync. Enjoying the company of one another, this time not on top of a building waiting for a criminal to jump out of AC duct, but on a dance floor where they feel like they are on top of the world.


"Owen you almost done?" Kelly asked as she was texting away on her phone waiting for Owen.

"One second Kelly, I'm almost done..." Owen said as he was finishing up a piece of cake. Then a person came out of the kitchen with anther large tray of food.

"Uh...give me another 5 minutes...maybe 10" Owen said as he ran over to the tray and started to eat away at the food.

Kelly just rolled her eyes and continued to text away on her phone.

Hope you guys enjoyed reading this story!
So, I am writing another chapter what happens after the dance, it will be up within the next week or two depending on how much time I have on me.
Thank you for all the reviews and I'm excited to read the ones for this chapter.
