Authors Note: I am so sorry I hadn't updated in a while. My computer went into the shop and then health issues kept me away. But since it's Valentine's Day here it is please read and review and once again I am so sorry about the wait.
The stars are shining brightly in the night sky. The moon is so bright. I decided to not wait to transfer back. I don't want to risk losing Serena. She really did bring light into my world. She lit the way for me in the darkness. She was there for me and saved me in more ways than I can count. I heard from Drew about the winter formal at her school and he's going to help me get in as a chaperon. I think this will be a good idea to start winning her back. A masquerade seems romantic. I hope. I know Drew said that he'd beat me up if I broke Serena's heart again. But he's still going to help me out. I don't care about Crystal Tokyo. I care about Renee but if she's there she's there if not well… I'll miss her but Serena is what's important.
The girl's and I were getting ready to go to the dance and we were all admiring our dresses. When we finished styling our hair and had everything ready we started to head out for the dance. I was scared and excited at the same time about the dance. I never could find somebody else to take the extra ticket so I put it up as a keepsake and let the girls know about it.
We arrived at about 7:30 so we had some time to enjoy before my secret admirer would show up. Hopefully everything would be fine. I see Drew walking about around the perimeter. I can just make out is blonde hair and he is smiling. I look over at Elizabeth and she smiles at me giving me thumbs up before going out onto the dance floor with her date. Everything is going great.
As it gets closer to 9 o'clock the girls and I start making our way to the center of the dance floor. I get there just as the clock strikes 9 and I start looking around. I don't see Drew but two guys are walking up another blonde and a guy with black hair. If I didn't know any better I would have thought the other guy was Darien. But he had made his choice. The blonde gets to me first.
"Hi. Are you my secret admirer?"
"Yes, I am."
"Well it would be nice to know your name."
"Oh I think you already know me Serena."
"But I don't. I'm sorry I guess the mask is throwing me off."
"Well the masks will be off at midnight. And then we will see."
"Oh well alright I guess."
"Would you like to dance?"
He led me into him for the dance but something didn't feel right. Something was telling me to get away. I look around and see the black haired guy looking upset and walking towards Drew. Hmmm Maybe this guy here is lying and the black haired guy is my secret admirer but why would somebody lie about that.
"You look beautiful tonight like always."
"Thank you. I wish I knew your name."
"Like I said you'll see."
I start to pull away and I said, "I think I'll go get something to drink real fast suddenly I'm feeling parched." I look towards Raye and gesture quickly towards the punch table.
"I'll get it for you."
"Oh no thank you. I'll be right back."
I walk up to Raye and say, "Something isn't right can you get a reading on this guy."
"No I can't. I've been trying and there's something familiar but something is blocking me. Do you think?"
"No. Yes. Oh I don't know. Something doesn't seem right did you see that other guy coming towards me in the middle of the dance floor."
"Yea I did. He's talking to Drew now. It almost looks like Darien."
"I know. But why would Darien come back now. It's the middle of the school year. He wouldn't do something like that."
"That's what I would think. But still I don't know. Be careful with both of the Serena."
The black haired guy came up at that moment and said, "Will you dance with me?"
I look at Raye and she nods at me and I smile up at the guy and say, "Sure."
He leads me onto the dance floor and we start to dance to the fast song when it suddenly ends into a slow song. We smile at each other and start to dance to the slow song. We fit perfectly together. We danced through almost the whole song when the blonde guy taps him on the shoulder and says, "You're dancing with my date."
"I'm sorry. I didn't realize she was your date." He drops his hold on me and stands aside and the blonde started dancing with me.
It went like that up until midnight with both guys interrupting each other to dance with me. It felt nice. But which one is my secret admirer?
The girls and I sit at one of the tables and start discussing everything when both guys come up.
"It's a few minutes till midnight. If you want to know who you're secret admirer is then come with me to the patio." The blonde guy says.
"What?! I'm her secret admirer." The black haired guy said when the blonde started to grab my upper arm.
They turn to each other and start growling like they are getting ready to fight when the chimes started to let everybody know it was midnight. Everybody started removing their masks. The girls and I included. Both guys look at each other and Drew comes over sensing trouble. I stand up and say, "Why don't you both take off your masks?"
The black haired guy and the blonde both reached up to pull off their masks and they start to slide up to reveal themselves. Oh My God. I can't believe it. The girls look at me at the same time in shock with the mouths wide open. I can't help it I start to run out of the room in disbelief and the girls get up and follow me.
Authors Note: Well I was thinking about leaving a little cliff hanger here. But then again since everybody has waited patiently I will reveal the two guys now.
My secret admirer plan had worked like a charm but to well. I look across me at somebody I had hoped to never see again who had pretended to be the secret admirer. Alan looks at me and says, "Well that didn't go exactly to plan."
"What are you doing back here Alan? I thought you and Ann had left for ever with the doom tree."
"We had. But Ann and I couldn't get a long I kept remembering Serena and so I came back. We broke it off mutually. I got back here two weeks ago. And heard you and Serena had broken up. Thought I had a chance."
"Well you don't Serena is mine. I sent her those gifts. How dare you pretend to be her secret admirer. I'm going to win her back. And I won't let you stand in my way."
"Well try proving it. I already told her I'm her secret admirer. Good luck getting her to believe you."
I growl at the guy and throw a punch. And next thing I know we are in a fight. Drew is trying to pull us apart but it's not going to work. We are on the floor rolling around trying to jockey for position when I feel somebody pull me off of Alan. I turn to look and it's an officer.
A short while later the click of hand cuffs sound as we are both arrested and taken to jail. And not to long after that the jail door slammed closed behind us both. This was not part of the plan. I look over at Alan and get some satisfaction in that I'm doing better than him at least.
Authors note: Well now I think I'll leave it here. I hope it was worth the wait. And please read and review.
