Hi guys! So this is my new Cailey story! I don't know if I'll continue it if you don't like it, but here it is! It is just SLIGHTLY OOC with some of the characters.
This takes place when they are 17/ seniors. Cody and Bailey never went out. Barbara and Bob are on the boat, too.
Dislcaimer: I do not own the Suite life.
This story is all in Bailey's POV like most of my stories are and will be.
She giggled again but this time it was more high-pitched. The sound seemed to echo around the Sky Deck, and Bailey's appetite decreased more and more by the minute. The noise sounded like the slaughtering of a baby to her.
Bailey looked up. Barbara was sitting across from her and had her head on Cody's shoulder. She was staring up at him while tickling his side.
Cody jumped slightly once again, touching her hand. "Come on, Barbara," he said softly with a smile.
Barbara gave another horrible giggle. "Sorry, Codles."
Bailey wanted to throw a brick at her head. His name was Cody - not 'Codles', or any other stupid pet name the girl had come up with over the past couple of months.
Bailey looked at her smoothie. It definitely looked really good, but it wasn't what was going to cure her hunger. She looked up again.
Completely ignoring Barbara, Bailey concentrated on Cody: he was holding his smoothie to his mouth while flipping through a science textbook. As he read, his blue eyes were so focused and alive. She smiled.
Cody loved science. Bailey loved how much it meant to him. It made him so happy and alive. He could go on and on for days about why he loved it so much. His eyes lit up whenever he talked about a topic that was especially fascinating to him. She, unlike Barbara who didn't know the first thing about science, actually listened and understood what he would talk about. It also made it easier to talk to him because he was extremely easy on the eyes. Yes, he was still skinny, but he had grown taller and was not quite as scrawny as he used to be. His golden blonde hair was combed perfectly and fell just about his eyes. His eyes. His beautiful baby blue eyes. They seemed to capture Bailey whenever she looked at them. She felt like she was falling into a deep ocean everytime she looked into them. All in all, he was a very attractive person.
"You know, if you stare for too long, then your eyes will get stuck that way," Zack said from behind the counter.
Bailey quickly looked away from Cody. "Shut up, Zack!"
He chuckled, rolling eyes. "What?" he whispered. "You're staring at him like a starving woman."
Bailey sighed and said nothing; Zack had no idea how hungry she truly was.
Cody closed his textbook. "I guess we're gonna head off. I forgot something in my cabin anyway." He stood up and Barbara speedily joined him.
"See you in class," Zack said.
Cody nodded then walked off with Barbara closely beside him. Bailey sighed. Barbara was like Cody's shadow and didn't move unless her boyfriend was moving as well.
"Do you want to go?" Zack asked.
"Might as well," Bailey said, almost in defeat. "I'm not hungry anymore." (A/N: This is a Cailey story with some Zaya mixed in there, there will be no 'Zailey' or any of that, but Zack and Bailey best friends in this story.)
They walked to Social Studies in complete silence.
Bailey took her usual seat in the front row. She liked sitting as close to the front as possible. She always found she focused better in the front.
The day dragged on, but by lunch, she was finally hungry enough to eat.
"Zack is the biggest ass hole in the whole bloody world," Cody grumbled as they sat at their table.
"Hey!" Zack said offended.
"Language, Cody," Bailey said, sitting across from him, "and you need to get over your frustration already."
"I'm over it," he mumbled. "I just don't like him."
"Come on, I'm your brother! You have to love me," Zack said.
"Well, there are other things for you to think about - like the science fair," Maya said.
Zack smiled at her. "Yeah, I agree."
Bailey mentally laughed. Zack was a bit rich telling her not to stare. He couldn't have been more obvious unless he wrote 'I Love Maya' on his forehead.
"It will be fine," Cody said. "I've been preparing all year."
"It helps that you're the smartest guy in school," Barbara flirted, caressing his cheek.
Cody blushed a little. "Thanks."
Barbara giggled, closing the gap between their lips. Bailey felt her stomach turn over. Barbara was all over Cody, again. Her hands were gripping his arms while her tongue thrashed around in his mouth. Bailey hated it. She wanted to turn away, break it up, or pull Barbara off of Cody; however, more than anything else, Bailey wanted to take her place.
It wasn't as if her feelings were new. Bailey had liked Cody ever since they met, and as the years had progressed, her feelings and attraction intensified. By sixteen, she couldn't do anything around him without burning with excitement and need. Now, at seventeen, it was past just a crush- Bailey was in love with Cody. She loved him more than anyone or anything and he had her completely. No one got to her in the way that he did, and no one fired her up in the way that he could. Every time Cody smiled at Bailey, her heart skipped a beat and she felt somewhat lightheaded. He was the only person who truly made her feel things.
In spite of all this, Bailey couldn't tell Cody how she felt. She doubted if he even had feelings for her that went beyond friendship. There was once a time when Bailey had thought that Cody possibly liked her, but everything had changed the moment he started dating Barbara Brownstein.
It had happened at the very beginning of the school term. Out of nowhere, London had told her and Zack that she caught the pair kissing on the Sky Deck. Bailey didn't believe it at first. Everything about her and Cody had seemed so perfectly matched, yet he'd somehow found his way to Barbara.
Even after two months, Bailey couldn't understand how it had happened or how they were still together. Barbara was decent enough, but she wasn't right for Cody. He needed someone who was as smart as him and would challenge him. He needed someone who could make him laugh and feel important - not just use him to make out with. He needed someone who could tell him funny stories about being back on the farm in Kettlecorn, Kansas. Yes - Cody needed a girl who was smart and kind…with light brown hair and brown eyes and-
"Bailey," Maya said, tapping her shoulder, "we should get to class, don't you think?"
"Oh, right, sorry," she breathed, shaking her head and getting up. She hadn't realized that she had lost focus or that Cody and Barbara were already gone. Bailey looked down at her plate, sighing once more. Maybe she'd finally get a chance to eat at dinner.
Hermione loved Chemistry. Ms. Tutweiller was her favorite teacher, and she adored doing labs, especially when she was paired with Cody. Thank god Barbara wasn't in this class.
"Bailey, want to be partners?" Cody asked.
She smiled at him; Bailey also loved the class because she got to sit next to Cody, "Sure!" she said.
"You're supposed to add 3 drops of Hydrochloric acid into the mixture," she told him.
Cody nodded. He gently and slowly added 3 drops of Hydrochloric acid into the mixture. Unfortunately he got it on his hand and it started to turn blue.
"Damn it," he cursed.
Bailey chuckled. On his rather pale body, his hand now looked rather funny.
"This is so not funny, Bailey! Now I'm gonna look so weird with a blue hand," he complained, but she could tell he was trying to not laugh as well.
"Oh, your hands are fine," she said. In fact, Bailey thought Cody's hands were perfect. They were the perfect size and fit for her.
Cody smirked, holding up his hand. "Put yours against mine."
Bailey's heart skipped a beat. "O-okay." She licked her lips, pressing her hand to his; her body heated up. Every time her skin touched Cody's, she felt a wild fire blaze inside of her body. Bailey studied their hands. His blue skin against her tanner complexion looked amazing. She only wished that it was his normal colored hand. Bailey would love to see how her hand looked against his pale one.
"My hands are so much bigger than yours," he laughed.
"Yes, I do have small hands," Bailey said, moving her fingers back.
"That's not a bad thing," he said with a grin. "I like your hands. They're nice."
Bailey didn't know what to say; all she could do was smile. Cody kept looking at her, and she slowly lost herself. He was incredibly gorgeous: freckles sprinkled all over his nose, his lips were full and smooth, and his hair was so smooth and golden and hung in his face perfectly. Cody looked so much older and sexier at seventeen, but there was still a hint of mischief and innocence in his features that Bailey had cherished since she was fourteen.
Bailey suddenly heard a noise as if someone was choking. She and Cody both turned behind them; Barbara was practically glaring at them. The two immediately dropped their hands, turning back around.
They didn't say much to each other after that.
The end of the school day couldn't have come soon enough. All Bailey wanted to do was read in the library. She had a lot of homework to complete, and she refused to save it all until the last minute. She loved the way Cody did his a month in advance. He was always way ahead of everyone else.
She was deep in Calculus when Zack came over to her table. "Thought I'd find you here," he said, sitting down.
She looked up from her parchment. "Yeah, well, I thought I'd never find you here unless threatened with violence."
He shrugged. "Cody and Barbara are making out again and…Maya is on the Sky Deck with Bob, Marcus, and Woody." He looked away, pretending to check his phone.
Bailey nodded, feeling Zack's pain. She knew that he couldn't be in the same room with Maya and Bob for too long because he was in love with Maya. Bailey had seen Zack's feelings for her grow over the past couple of years, and while Maya returned his feelings, Zack had simply been too late to discover his own. Maya was now happy with Bob and had been since the end of the last school term. (A/N: I know Maya and Bob didn't actually meet or date, but for the sake of the story, I'm going to make it that way just for this.)
Bailey had to do something for him but she didn't know what. "I've got plenty of books, if you want to study," she offered.
"I may not be having a good day, but I'm not that desperate," Zack said. "I just wanted to come see if you were okay. I'm probably going to go to the hot tub."
"Yeah, I'm fine. I have a lot of work to do, so this is where I'll be for the night. Go get some fresh air," Bailey said.
"All right. I'll see you later," He walked away.
Bailey spent the next few hours in the library. Schoolwork always kept her mind off everything and everyone; however, as the night pushed on, her eyelids began to droop and focusing became harder to do. A smoothie would be the best thing for her now.
She walked onto the Sky Deck. Cody was sitting on one of the chairs, writing fiercely.
"What are you still doing up?" Bailey asked.
He looked up at her. "Trying to finish a bit of work."
She gave him a look. "But didn't you finish tonight's homework a month ago?" Most of Bailey's fatigue faded. She sat next to him. "What are you working on?"
"Science fair," he said.
"Do you need any help?"
Cody looked at her and smiled. "Sure. Thanks, Bailey."
She smiled at him then moved his data table towards her. They worked on the project for the next hour; Bailey loved it.
When they were alone, it was always intense for her. Cody had no idea what he did to her. His voice was deep, calm, and reached inside her chest; the firelight danced across his pale face, making his beautiful eyes glow. He was simply stunning, and she loved and wanted him so badly.
"I don't know why you waited to do this project. Usually you're a month in advance when it comes to this kind of stuff," Bailey teased sometime later as they stood up and stretched.
"It's not my fault. I couldn't exactly do it with…Barbara and all…" He trailed off, looking away. Bailey didn't speak either. They never really talked about his relationship with Barbara.
She hated the awkwardness that had quickly grown between them. "Well, I can understand how she would be a distraction."
Cody frowned a little. "She's not a distraction. She just…we didn't feel like studying."
"Fine! I get what you're saying, Cody," she snapped. They went silent again, and she couldn't look at him. She felt bad for snapping at him.
"Well, I'm gonna go to bed," he mumbled. "Thanks for the help."
Bailey nodded, biting her lip again. She didn't watch him walk out. She sat for a while, wishing that her relationship with Cody wasn't so complicated or that she didn't want him as much as she did. Bailey saw him every day, but for some reason, she found herself missing him often.
When she opened the door to her cabin, she heard Barbara's giggle. She was sitting on London's bed.
They looked up at her as she walked in. Bailey tried to look unfazed. "Hello."
"Hi, Bailey. Did you get all your homework done?" London asked.
"Yep, I'm finally finished," she answered, taking off her shoes.
Barbara raised an eyebrow, continuing to stare at her. She gave her a look then turned back to London. "Like I was saying, Cody definitely knows how to kiss. That boy is a genius with his tongue." Bailey tried to ignore the jealousy that was starting to come over her.
"Barbara!" London whined. "I don't need to know all of this! Can't we talk about something more interesting…like shopping?!"
Barbara tossed her hair, smiling wickedly. "Oh, he is so good, London." She paused then said very clearly, "And his hands…I love how big and strong they feel against me. They're brilliant!"
Bailey couldn't take it anymore. She got into her bed, pulling the covers over her head. She could hear Barbara giggling; she knew that she was doing it on purpose. The two of them had never technically been friends, but ever since she started dating Cody, Barbara had become a lot more condescending towards her. Maya said that she was just threatened, but Bailey couldn't understand why. Barbara had Cody. All she had were her dreams.
Bailey wanted to do something. She needed to make things right but she didn't know where to start.
Bailey Pickett was known to be genius in a lot of ways, but when it came to matters of heart, especially when her heart belonged Cody Martin, Bailey had no idea where to start.
