Razor0603: Hey guys, welcome back. Wow, when we came up with this idea, I honestly thought it would just be a small little one shot, but yet here we are four chapters later, it's crazy... Before we start, I'd like to give a shoutout to RhiannaNekozawa for pointing out a tiny detail we forgot. Cayla is 18 in this fic, just so everyone knows...

Chevyman_201106: I had a blast helping razor with this, even though this one is later than we expected(all my fault this time, don't blame Razor!). Hoe you all enjoy it and thanks for taking your time to read this and stick with us through all of it.


Alice and I walked into Cary's room to see Cayla sitting on the edge of Cary's bed listening to him talk animatedly about something.

"And then, after all the white cube things came together, oh hey guys, anyway, they formed it's ship, and then it made the water tower implode and it shot off into space!"

Cayla looked between the three of us before laughing.

"All three of you are fucking insane, you know that?"

Cary, Alice and me just busted out laughing, we couldn't help it. She was absolutely right.

"Well, when you're best friends with Cary, you tend to go insane," I said through my laughs, earning a glare from said boy, "Aww, did I hurt wittle Cary's feewings?"

I shot Alice a look, and he saw comprehension dawn on her face.

"Cayla, could you and Alice give us a minute... I need to talk to Cary."

Cayla nodded and they left the room, but not before Alice flashed me a quick wink which I returned with a smile.

"We'll be back later, you two behave," Alice said, and Cayla nodded her approval before the door closed.

I turned to Cary, and took his hand in mine.

"I'm so sorry man, if I had been a little more careful then you wouldn't have ended up in here and-" I was cut off my Cary wrapping me in a hug.

"It's okay Joe, I'm fine"

That was all it took for me to break down, I buried my head in Cary's shoulder and started bawling, I couldn't help it. He held me close and rubbed my back, telling me it would be okay and calming me down.

After about twenty minutes or so, I calmed down and sat up, wiping my eyes and nose on the sleeve of my shirt and facing him.

"Sorry about that... I've just been so worried I might have done something to you, something bad and I don't think I could live with that," I told him, taking his hand in mine again. He gave my hand a squeeze and smiled softly.

"I'm fine Jo-jo, so don't think about it any more," Cary said, smiling at me softly, I couldn't help but grin back. I traced my fingers up and down his arm, going around the tubes sticking out of flesh and smiling as he shivered. He had always been ticklish on his arms.

It was quiet for a moment, then we both spoke at the same time.



We looked at each other and blushed lightly, trying to figure out who should go first.

"You go first Cary, I can wait"

"You sure?"

"Yes, so whats up?"

Cary suddenly looked troubled, a million emotions swimming in his normally bright eyes. Fear, apprehension, anxiety, and relief? I hated to see Cary so conflicted so I moved to sit next to him and placed a hand on Cary's shoulder.

"Hey, are you okay man? You know you can tell me anything," I said with a soft smile, hoping to get him to open up. He looked at me and smiled back, before reaching his hand out to me.


When Joe told me I could tell him anything, I saw him in a new light. He had always cared for me, that was nothing new, but the look on his face was so sweet and caring I couldn't help myself.

I reached a hand toward him, placing it first on the side of his face, stroking his cheek back and forth with my thumb before moving to grasp the back of his neck, twining my fingers in his hair. Joe made a small noise of surprise; I saw it pass his lips as I watched them, taking in the slightly chapped wrinkles from hours of chewing on them . His tongue peeked out and licked at his bottom lip nervously, smoothing them. Subconsciously, I did that same, swallowing thickly as blood pounded in my ears and before I knew it, I was pulling him closer and pressing my lips to his.

It was just a quick kiss, before I was pulling back and looking him in the eye.

"I like you... as more that a friend Jo-jo"

At first I thought he was going to pass out, he had a look of pure shock on his face and his eyes were as big as quarters. Had the situation been different I would have been laughing, but now I was biting my bottom lip in anticipation. Minutes passed, but they seemed like hours, before Joe stirred. He looked at me, shock still evident on his face, and I felt mine fall.

"Joe, I'm sorry I couldn't stop myself. I understand if you want to walk out and not talk to me, I would probably do the same and-"

At first, it was awkward, we bumped noses and didn't quite fit together. For a second I considered pulling away but suddenly Joe leaned his head one way and we straightened up. He placed his hands on my waist and mine found their way around his neck, pulling our bodies closer together. I laced my fingers in his hair, lightly pulling on the stands, and making him moan into this kiss, the vibrations spreading throughout his body and into mine. I bit on his bottom lip slightly, earning another moan from Joe and I was quickly becoming addicted to the sound. He slid his tongue against my bottom lip, asking for entrance and I quickly let him have it.

We broke apart for air, and I looked at Joe with a shocked expression.

"I like you too Ca, as more than a friend"

I smiled and kissed him again, this time it was soft, but just as passionate. Joe leaned us back, and I found myself trapped between the bed and Joe's body, which was hovering above me with him holding himself up with his arms. He smiled at me before kissing me again.

Before the kiss could get much further, the door opened and we broke apart, but Joe kept an arm around my waist, sitting on my side that wasn't connect to different wires and tubes. Alice was beaming at us, and I smiled back at her. Cayla, on the other hand, look mad, furious even. She took a short breath then glared at Joe.

"Joesph Lamb, you have two second to explain why the hell you where laying over my brother before I kick your little white ass"

Joe let out a small noise before trying to hide behind me

"Well, um, I was kissing him Cayla... That's kinda what boyfriends do"

I laughed at the owlish look on my sister's face when he said that, I couldn't help it. It seemed like she didn't expect him to admit it so easily. Alice placed a hand on her arm as if telling her to calm down and looked back at us.

"I'm happy for the both of you, you guys looks adorable together," She told us, but I could see the hurt in her eyes at Joe loving someone else. I made a decision to talk to her later.


I jumped slightly when the door opened, but moved Cary and I into a less awkward position. I moved to his side, that wasn't attached to the machines, and placed my arm around his waist. Alice and Cayla where standing in the doorway, Alice had a look of joy on her face, and I couldn't help but smile back. Cayla, on the other hand, looks pissed, furious.

"Joesph Lamb, you have two second to explain why the hell you where laying over my brother before I kick your little white ass"

I bit my lip nervously, I was honestly afraid of Cayla. Not because she caught me kissing her brother, of that said brother was a pyromaniac, but because last time I saw her, she had just gotten her black belt in karate, and wasn't afraid to use the people that upset her as human practice dummies.

I swallowed nervously before answering.

"Well, um, I was kissing him Cayla... That's kinda what boyfriends do"

Her expression went from angry to shocked in a second, I guess she didn't think I'd actually admit it. She looked like she was about to say something else, but Alice put her hand on her arm to keep her quiet before turning her attention back to us.

"I'm happy for the both of you, you guys looks adorable together"

I smiled at her, but felt a little bad cause she has just broke up with me so I could be happy, and not an hour later I'm kissing Cary like nothing ever happened. I felt Cary tense up next to me, and glanced at him to see a troubled look flash across his face before it disappeared. I motioned for the girls to sit down, and they did, Cayla on the end of the bed on Cary's side, Alice in the chair next to me. Cary shifted and leaned his head on my shoulder, causing me to subconsciously shift so he was more comfy and tighten my hold around his waist.

"So, I can tell you guys want to ask us questions so go ahead," Cary said, and I nodded. Might as well get this over with.

"Are you two both finally happy this is out in the open and your not holding it in anymore," Alice asked. I looked at Cary at the same time he looked at me, and we both nodded and said in unison.


Alice 'aww'ed which was echoed by Cayla a few seconds later and they took turns asking us questions, like who said it first, who kissed who first and stuff like that. After about ten minutes of questions, Cary yawned and I felt it was time for him to rest.

"Okay girls, as much as I love answering your questions," Two scoffs and Cary's grin told me the didn't believe me, " I think we should let Cary rest."

They nodded, and stood, both giving him a hug and kissing his cheek and told him to get better before going to stand by the door. I moved to get up but Cary grabbed my wrist and I looked at him.

"Stay. Please"

I couldn't help but smile and nodded, and looked at the girls. Alice had small smile and knowing look on her face, and winked at me. Cayla gave me a mock glare and pointed her finger at me.

"You treat him good Joe, or I'll find you and break you in half, got it?,"

I gulped and nodded and she smiled before opening the door, and they both left. I laid down on my side next to Cary, he rolled so he facing me and placed his arm with all the wires and stuff on top of mine around his waist. He smiled at me and I leaned forward and kissed his forehead.

"I love you Ca"

He smiled and gave me a quick kiss.

"I love you too Jo-jo, but next time... Lets leave the fireworks to me"

I laughed and nodded, earning another smile from him before he leaned his head against my chest and fell asleep. I kissed the top of his head once last time before looking out the window, wondering what the future held for us. I fell into the deep embrace of sleep to dreaming of the days ahead with my blond headed firecracker by my side.
