Hi c: I suck v.v I'm sorry for taking so long. I really am. Well, here yah go ^.^

"Mom!" Loren whined, laughing. Nor a had just told the Duran boys that when she was little, she would get into the baby powder and smear it all over her face.

Everyone at the table erupted in laughter.

"I remember that! One day, I came over and Loren answered the door, and her face was all white! Oh my Gosh! Made my whole day!" Mel laughed.

Loren looked down embarrassed.

"Really?" Max asked, still laughing, "That's what Eddie use to do."

Eddie instantly stopped laughing and looked at his dad.

"Really dad, really,"

Max laughed some more and shook his head.

"Sorry son, but I just had too. I didn't want poor Loren to be the only one feeling embarrassed." Max said.

Eddie blushed and looked down at his lap.

"Thanks dad," Eddie muttered.

Max clamped his hand on Eddie's shoulder.

"Any time, son,"

Eddie glared at his dad then looked at Loren and aw that she was smiling and laughing a little.

Causing Eddie to smile too.

"Well, looks like you two have a lot in common," Nora said.

"What else do we have in common?" Eddie asked.

"Well," Nora started, looking at Loren, "Loren loves to write songs and sing them."

Loren's eyes grew and she hid her face in her hands.

"Mom," She groaned.

"Really?" Eddie looked at her in awe.

Loren nodded sheepishly.

"Mind if you show me some time?" Eddie asked.

Loren shook her head frantically.

"No, no, no. I have horrible stage fright."

Eddie chuckled and shook his head lightly.

"I won't judge you."

Loren looked up at him and smiled.

"I know you won't."

Eddie smiled.

"Well, who wants dessert?" Nora asked.

"Me!" Mel yelled, standing up.

Max chuckled and stood up.

"I'll have some as well."

"I'm full, thanks." Loren said, looking over at her mom.

Nora smiled and nodded.

"How about you Eddie,"

Eddie shook his head.

"Nah, I'm good. Thanks."

Nora smiled and nodded.

"So," Eddie said, focusing on Loren, "Mind showing me some of your songs?"

Loren looked at him and smiled lightly.


They got up and walked into Loren's room.

Eddie looked around and smiled when he saw the poster of him in her wall.

"I love your poster." Eddie said.

Loren looked at her Eddie Duran poster and smiled sheepishly.


Eddie laughed and sat on the edge of Loren's bed.

"So, want to show me an amazing 'Loren Tate song'?" Eddie asked, smiling.

Loren blushed and looked down.

"Sure," She muttered.

Eddie chuckled under his breath at her shyness.

"This is called 'Mars'." Loren announced, and then started singing.

(Eh, too lazy to write down the lyrics….)

When she was done, she tried ignoring Eddie's gaze.

"Loren," He whispered, "That was…..that was beautiful.."

Loren looked up and smiled sheepishly.

Eddie got up and took her face in his hands.

"You're beautiful," He whispered.

Then, he started to lean in. Loren's heart started to beat a mile a minute. Was this really happening? Well, his eyes were closed and he was slowly leaning in….yep….this is really happening.

Then she started leaning in too.

It felt like forever, but their lips finally met.

Loren's head was spinning. Was she really kissing Eddie Duran, or was this another one of her dreams?

When Eddie pulled her closer by the waist, she knew it was real.

When they pulled away, Eddie rested his head gently on hers, taking in her company.

"You know," Eddie said, breaking the silence, "When I walked through your door, I had the sudden urge to run over to you and kiss you."

Loren blushed and looked down.

Eddie curled his finger and picked her head up.

They looked at each other for a little while and then Eddie leaned in and kissed her again.

Loren can say this was probably the best dinner she's had ever.

Eddie parted her lips with his and slowly slipped his tongue in her mouth.

She wasn't complaining.

Finally, they pulled away, needing air.

"You're so beautiful." Eddie whispered.

Loren looked up at him and had tears filling her eyes.

"Really?" she asked, not knowing if she heard him correctly.

Eddie chuckled and nodded.

"Yes, what? You've never been called beautiful before?"

Loren shook her head.


Eddie looked at her in complete shock.

"Really? Oh my God! Those idiots! How could they not see any beauty in you?! You're gorgeous!" Eddie ranted.

Loren smiled and pecked his lips again.


"No problem, beautiful."

SO SO SO SO SO SO SORRY! My laptop broke and ugh! I suck v.v

Anyways, sorry it's short. I'm tired. Night c:
