HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Hey um just writing this while my sis is at danceā€¦.while waiting to do tap and pointe. Ah, my feet hurt already. But, enough about me. Let's talk about you! Is that from, like, a Dr. Seuss book or something? So yeah. Oh, has anyone seen 1D's new song/MV Live While We're Young? In case it wasn't obv from my pen name, I am a huge Directioner. Wanna guess which boy I like best? Also, if you haven't read Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck, go and read it. Now. Well, after you read this chapter. SO GOOD! Also (Wow, I sure am thinking of all these things to put in my uber long AN, aren't I? They usually aren't this long, so bear with me). Do you guys have a Pottermore account? I can't find anyone who has one besides my friend from camp. And he lives in TX! Ok, I will get on with the story now. Sorry.

Alek stormed about his hotel room in a rage. How dare she pretend that they weren't friends? They had been inseperable for two years on the Leviathan! And, oh, that Neil! How could she like him better than Alek? ARGH!

"Sir?" a concerned voice asked from outside the room.

Drat. Alek must have been saying his thoughts out loud. "I'm fine, thank you," he called back.

Alek thought. How could he get Deryn to realize that he truly loved her? A grin slowly spread itself across Alek's face as he came up with an idea to get her back.

A few hours later

The doorbell rang at the Sharp family household for the *gasp * first time that day. Jaspert walked to the door, seeing as Deryn was holed up in her room, probably drawing. "Alek? Yet again?" Jaspert asked, exasperated.

"Yes, I'm sorry." He stood there, waiting expectantly.

Jaspert sighed. "Alek, would you like to come in?"

"Yes, thank you for the very kind offer."

As Alek walked in, Jaspert asked, "So, what brings you here today?"

"I was wondering if I might see Deryn. You know, to congratulate her on her upcoming wedding and all."

"Oh. Well, she's up in her room. Up the stairs, last door on the right."

"Thanks."

Ok. Any ideas of what Alek is gonna do? I have, like, a half-planned idea in my mind but I'm more than happy to receive any ideas. And I'll give you credit for them. I'm awesome, aren't I?
