Whoever Said Loving You Was Easy Lied

The End

"So, is that what you told Jocelyn?"

"I did. It seems like my love for her even though it was real, it just wasn't realistic. Jocelyn didn't truly love me. She likes guys, that much I know is true. Even though Jeremy treated her like shit, she still loved him and that much even I could figure out. I think she was just trying to turn her friendship with me into something more. This, at the time, was something I thought I always wanted but that's not necessarily true"

"And what is true?"

I stood at the center of the gym where Candace told me to bring Izzy and stared directly into her eyes.

"It's the same thing that I've told you earlier. That I want to be with you. I can't believe I was so blind this entire time by not noticing all the couple shit that we did together and how easy it felt to be around you. Everything just clicked right away unlike how things would have been with Jocelyn. We have a natural, honest connection that I can't deny anymore."

With that, I saw Candace and the rest of the cheerleaders walking down the bleachers as music started playing in the background. Izzy looked around in confusion and I noticed our friends walking into the gym with the same perplexed look on their faces.

Well, now was as good as a time as any.

Candace nodded towards me and I took that as a signal and took Izzy by both her hands, hoping that she wouldn't be too embarrassed by what I was about to do.

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off of you

You'd be like heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much

At long last love has arrived

And I thank God I'm alive

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off of you

Izzy shook her head and smiled before trying to pull away from me in slight embarrassment but I followed after her and just sang louder.

Pardon the way that I stare

There's nothing else to compare

They sight of you leaves me weak

There are no words left to speak

But if you feel like I feel

Please let me know that it's real

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off of you

Carly, Adam, Maxie, and Candace were blocking off Izzy's escape and I heard Carly laugh before grabbing Izzy and making me face her.

I kneeled before her and took her hand, looking straight at her as I sang.

I need you baby

And if it's quite all right

I need you baby to warm a lonely night

I love you baby

Trust in me when I say

Oh pretty baby

Don't bring me down I pray

Oh pretty baby

Now that I've found you stay

And let me love you baby

Oh let me love you

Izzy smiled and pulled me off my feet, grabbing the back of my neck and kissing me. I deepened the kiss and once again, there was that feeling of fireworks, lust, passion; everything I expected to feel from her.

I loved Izzy and there was no doubt in my mind that she was the one now.

"Awwww! It's about time" Carly exclaimed. "I think we all known it was bound to happen" Adam shrugged. "No we didn't. Tori had been crazy about Jocelyn and I didn't even know Izzy had feelings for her until earlier" Maxie shout back.

"Oh I meant we, as in Carly, Tyler, Claire, and me. I don't think anyone told you" he teased. Maxie glared at him and I smiled into the kiss, ignoring everyone else and just holding Izzy against me.

"Finally" I heard her whisper. I looked at her and interlaced our fingers. "I'm sorry it took so long" I said, so only she could hear. Izzy just shook her head and smiled. "It's fine. I knew it wasn't going to be easy. Loving someone never is".

My heart skipped a beat at her comment and I cupped her face again and tenderly kissed her. She moved her lips against mine and everything else seemed to disappear.

Candace put her hand on my shoulder and I looked over at her. "So…who's going to tell dad?" she asked. I sighed and Izzy just squeezed my hand. "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. I'm not going anywhere Tori. Now, that I have you, it's going to be difficult to get rid of me" she answered.

"Jesus, Izzy. This is why everyone thinks we're together" I teased. She laughed and grabbed the back of my neck.

"Then maybe we shouldn't prove them wrong because everyone's right this time."

And just like that, she pulled me towards her and we kissed once more. Candace rolled her eyes but there was a slight smile on her face as she walked away.

I saw Jocelyn walk in the gym out the corner of my eye as I held Izzy and she just simply waved at me and I waved back. It would be hard to get our friendship back on track after all of this but I knew that we would. She was my best friend after all.

I heard Victoria and Jeremy arguing as they walked through the gym. Victoria hardly noticed anyone else as they bickered back and forth and I thought, in some weird way, that they looked good together. Hopefully Jeremy would get his act together and realize that he was in love with her before he lost her completely.

I knew Victoria wasn't completely over me but eventually, she would realize there was a reason she slept with Jeremy.

Candace was standing next to Maxie as they talked with Adam and for a second, it looked almost like Maxie was smiling at Candace. Maybe there was hope for my little sister yet.

"Done people watching?" Izzy teased, poking at my chest. I looked at her and nodded. "Just making sure everything else in right in the world" I replied.

"Good. Can we leave the gym now? There's something I need to talk to you about…alone" she whispered in my ear, seductively. I nodded my head and practically dragged her out of the gym.

"Tori! Where are you going?" Candace yelled after me. "Maxie can take you home. I'll see you later" I yelled behind me, opening the door to the gym.

"If you catch me, you can have more than one round" Izzy said smirking at me, before running towards my car.

"Oh that's not fair. You had a head start! Izzy! You're just kidding right? Izzy! Slow down" I yelled, running after her.

Izzy just giggled and I laughed with her, following as she ran behind trees and dodged over people in the parking lot.

I loved this girl. I loved her smile, her attitude, her personality, and everything that made her. That much I knew now.

I felt something hit my chest and stopped to look at the item. I laughed and threw it behind me, running even faster behind her, leaving the panties on the ground behind me.

Hm. Funny that's how things started…and I guess that's how things will end.

"You better hope no one gets a picture of that! I'm serious Izzy. Baby! Wait!"
