Song: Wipe Your Eyes-Maroon 5 (I am OBSESSED with Maroon 5)

Couple/Person: Chloe&Alek

POV: 3rd Person

Chloe made her way back to her home after the dreadful night she had. She was shocked. Everything had happened so fast, like a blur. She couldn't believe everything. She went to meet her Dad, met the Order. She got shot...3 times. Woke up as Brian kissed her, he's dead. Her mom wasn't home yet. She groaned in frustration as she sat on her bed and ran her hands through her hair. She lied back on her bed and tried to breath in and out. She kept it up for minutes until her window opened. After everything that happened, she didn't feel like fighting off more Order members. She sat up and stared at the intruder that was standing in the dark.

"Alek?" She stood slowly.

I'm afraid that I gotta do what I gotta do
But if I let you go, where you gonna go?
We gotta make a change, time to turn the page
Something isn't right, I don't wanna fight you

"Yeah..." He stepped closer and Chloe saw his bruises and scratches. She held her gasp.

"What happened?" She lifted her hand.

"I could ask you the same thing." He pointed his hand at her stomach.

"Plain and simple. I was tricked by The Order and died and I killed Brian." She didn't cry, her voice didn't break, she stood tall.

"Zane killed Jasmine and Valentina. Failed to kill me." He also answered simply.

"This night...Was something else." She sat down. He took a seat beside her.

"How did Brian die?" He turned to her.

"I kissed him, how else?" She looked down. Alek didn't move or speak. "Don't act surprised." She whispered.

"I'm not. I'm just keeping my mouth shut. I let you go tonight and you got killed because you were unprotected." He sighed, frustrated with himself.

"I would've gone with or without you." She stated.

"I think we should just put the past behind us." He said rather quickly.

"A fresh start? I think we tried that already, Alek." She looked at him.

"I don't want to fight with you anymore. I don't want to be a jerk or your protector. I skipped the part about being a friend. I would like to have a fresh start as friends with you, Chloe." He moved closer to her.

We've been through tougher times, you know it gets worse
We can turn this around please let me be first
And as I feel your tears spilling on my shirt
Something isn't right I don't wanna fight you

"This isn't gonna end well Alek." She scooted up further onto her bed, away from him.

"We can do this together. We've both been through worse than tonight and it can still get worse." He scooted closer to her. "We can start over as friends, and help each other through it all. I'm sorry." She looked at him. "I had to be the first to say that." He looked down. He heard her sit up and move next to him as she enveloped him in a hug. He hugged back instantly.

"I'm sorry too. I hurt you and I didn't mean to." Her voice was strong as tears rolled down her face, hoping he wouldn't notice. Alek hugged her tighter as he felt tears on his shoulder. He know they both have healing to do and they have no time to fight with each other.

Hey you, come over and let me embrace you
I know that I'm causing you pain too
But remember if you need to cry
I'm here to wipe your eyes

He moved so he was sitting has her head bored as she just sat in the same spot.

"Chloe," He whispered. She glanced over at him, tears streaming still. "Come over here." He smiled at her. She smiled and moved over to him, sitting in front of him as his arms came around her and her arms went around his neck again. She let herself fall, and her walls come crashing down as she sobbed into his chest. Not that Chloe would notice, but she wasn't the only one crying. His eyes slowly let tears down his face as he held her, resting his chin on her head. She was shaking violently as she sobbed. He just rubbed her back, held her tighter, and cried himself. He hadn't cried since he came to San Francisco with Jasmine and Valentina, feeling lost after losing his parents. Now he lost the only family he had...Again.

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way

They were like that for hours before her sobbing stopped and they just held each other, comforting each other. She looked up at him and saw his eyes red and puffy, like hers he smiled at her as he ran his thumb across her cheek, wiping any more tears away. She smiled back as she smoothed his hair back out of his eyes. Her hand trailed down his face, onto his shoulder and she lied her head back onto his chest. They both sighed as they once again remembered everything that's happened to them. Alek felt at fault for her dying, if he wouldn't have walked away from her Brian wouldn't be dead. He would've died protecting her. Chloe didn't know how Alek was dealing with Valentina and Jasmine dying, after all that's happened to him already. They eventually relaxed and fell asleep, holding each other.

You gotta breathe, we'll be okay
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes

Oh nah nah oh nah nah nah nah
'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes
Oh nah nah oh nah nah nah nah

They both woke up at the same time really. Chloe blushed at being entangled in Alek's arms and Alek smirked at her. They didn't feel awkward as they woke up. Things felt...Normal. Alek needed Chloe to hold him up and Chloe needed him to do the same. They needed each other. They helped each other breath. They made a path for both of them to walk. They were just...Meant to be. There was no Alek and there was no Chloe. They were as one now.

They both went to school the next day. They went on, not noticing each other like any other day. Amy and Paul avoided Chloe as they saw her in the hall. Chloe couldn't take it at lunch, when Amy and Paul were holding hands and laughing like nothing happened to their best friend. She ran out before anyone saw her. Or so she though. Alek saw her run and excused himself from his friends to make sure she was okay. He followed her no racing heart beat to the janitors closet where he walked in without word. She turned around and saw him.

When did we cross the line?
How could we forget?
Why do we let the pressure get into our heads?
Your broken heart requires all of my attention

"They don't even care that their best friend just died!" She told him whisper/shouting. Tears flowing out of her eyes immediately. He just stood there, not completely sure what to do. "Maybe I should have never brought them into this, I crossed the line. I though I could trust them with anything and they would be there! I was wrong, so wrong." She sunk against the floor, cradling herself. He moved closer, kneeling in front of her.

"How were you supposed to know? We all should have someone there for us, someone to care. If you don't have Amy and Paul there's someone else. You can't let them get to you. You have enough to worry about." He whispered to her as he rubbed her knee. Right now, this poor girl in front of him was all he was concerned about.

Please don't lose your faith
Don't worry 'cause I'm here to keep you safe
I promise if you let me see your face
That I won't let you down
I won't let you down
I'm here to wipe your eyes

"Who is there for me then, Alek?" She asked, not lifting her head.

"I am, Chloe. Don't loose hope in me, I will care about you until the day I die. I will always be there when your sad and keep you safe. Being your protector, that is my job." He smiled and she wouldn't look up. "Come on, Chlo. Let me see you." She looked up slowly. He smiled again. "I promise I'll do my best to be there fro you and never let you down." He reached up and wiped her tears. "I always be here to do that. I'll always wipe your eyes." She smiled at him when he said that. They got up and he led her to lunch where they took their own table and talked. He finally go a couple of laughs from her. This was the beginning of the rest of there lives together.

I'm proud if this ^-^ It was actually kind of hard to write and a bit short though...Hope you liked! Also, I'm still writing but I may take a bit slower on my other stories since they're harder to write for. I'm going through a little bit of a rough spot in life right now, but I promise I will not abandon them! :D

Remember: Songs and people/couples for future writing in a review (:
