CHAT TIME! And a little over-protectiveness from Castiel! ;)
The minute I walked through the door Castiel cornered me, "What was that I saw out there?!" He shouted in my face. My white hair actually blew back a little at the power of his voice. I blinked several times, still a little dazed that Nathaniel had kissed me. Finally my mind caught up to the present, "Uh... what?" I asked dumbly. My brother looked like he was about to pop a blood vessel. "Did that goody-goody really just kiss you?!" Even though I didn't confirm it with words, my reddening face was a good enough answer.
I could hear Castiel gritting his teeth, "Korianna, stay away from that guy. He's bad news." I was finally climbing down from my shock enough to get angry, "Look I know you hate him, but he's done nothing to hurt me!" I snapped at Castiel. My red haired brother grabbed my shoulder tightly, his grey eyes dark, "Trust me, Korianna, if he hasn't hurt you yet, he will." I smacked his hand away, glaring, "I'll be the judge of that, Castiel West. Don't you dare start controlling my life like Father." I started to leave, but Castiel gripped my arm, pulling me to a stop, "Don't drag Dad into this. I'm trying to protect you from Nathaniel, not control you." Castiel said. I tried to yank my arm away, but my brother only tightened his grip to the point of bruising, "Until you tell me why you hate him so much, I'm not going to stop talking to Nathaniel! He's my friend, Castiel." I growled.
"Yeah, that kiss sure looked friendly to me." Castiel retorted. I stomped hard on my brother's foot, making him let go of my arm. I took a few steps away from him in case he lunged for me again, "One kiss. Whoop-de-doo. It's not the end of the world." Castiel looked livid, "Don't you dare say that one kiss isn't the end of the world!" He shouted and I blinked, getting the strange feeling that he wasn't talking about Nathaniel and me anymore. I crossed my arms, "Alright, I propose a compromise. You promise not to get so riled up over Nathaniel and I hanging out, and I'll stop bugging you to tell me what happened between the two of you. Deal?" "NO!" Castiel snapped. I shrugged, "Okay. I hope your ready to fight every night then, because I'm not going to stop talking to Nathaniel simply because you tell me to." Before he could say anything else, I ran up the stairs and locked myself in my bedroom.

RabidsingeR: Where on earth were you?! You didn't walk home with us, and you're late gettingon.
CrAzYArtist: Sorry, I was helping Nathaniel with paperwork after school. And then I got into a huge fightwithCastiel.
CrAzYArtist: Uh... no reason
MonKeybiz: You're hiding something Kori. I can tell.
CrAzYArtist: I am not!
GreenThumb: Just tell us. It's so obvious.
RabidsingeR: Seriously. You're such a terrible liar, I can tell your lying over the internet!
CrAzYArtist: Okay it was about Nathaniel. He walked me home again.
MonKeybiz: Castiel freaked out about that? That's not like him. I can only see Castiel freaking out if...
MonKeybiz: Oh. God.
MonKeybiz: NATHANIEL KISSED YOU DIDN'T HE?!
CrAzYArtist: It was a small peck!
RabidsingeR: WHAT?! You're actually admitting to it?! (Geez, I was hoping you'd try to denyit longer...)
GreenThumb: Well I can tell this is going to be a fan girl fest. I'm out.
*GreenThumb has signed out*
MonKeybiz: OhmaiGod OhmaiGod OhmaiGod! Nathaniel kissed you! He kissed YOU! HeKISSED you! Dreams really do come true!
RabidsingeR: How was it? Did he mess up, or is he actually a good kisser? NEED. DETAILS!
CrAzYArtist: *sigh* Jade was right... this is a fan girl fest...
RabidsingeR: Answer the question Korianna West!
RabidsingeR: *read in sarcasm* If he's good enough I just might kiss him myself. What do you think?! I wanna knowbecause I'm your oldest friend!
MonKeybiz: Yeah! Secrets don't make friends!
RabidsingeR: Or keep them!
CrAzYArtist: Well it's been nice calling you my friends all these years then...
MonKeybiz: Kori! You would really do that?!CrAzYArtist: NO! I told you it was a peck on the lips. I didn't even registrar what he was doing untilAFTER he left!
RabidsingeR: Well what was going on before he kissed you? What did he say? Give us something tosqueal over!
CrAzYArtist: Ugh. He told me to stop apologizing for things out of my control then he... kissed me.
MonKeybiz: Well what were you apologizing for?CrAzYArtist: Kinda getting Amber suspended... and making her mad at him
RabidsingeR: Okay I'm lost, how did you get Amber suspended?
CrAzYArtist: That's what I was helping Nathaniel with. Someone stole his teacher loungekeys andthen theexams. Turns out it was Amber. She got suspended for it and when she tried to slap me forratting her out, Nathaniel stopped her.
MonKeybiz: One point towards Nath! XDRabidsingeR: And Nath walked you home and then kissed you?
CrAzYArtist: Yes. And Castiel saw. So he went ballistic on me as soon as I stepped inside. Kepttalking about how Nathaniel was bad news and he would hurt me in the end...
RabidsingeR: Well Castiel has known him longer... and there is obviously a back story to thosetwo.
MonKeybiz: Are you really taking his side?
RabidsingeR: NO! I was just trying to be reasonable!
CrAzYArtist: Well stop, you're going to make the world end if you keep talking like that.
RabidsingeR: Har har. You're just a card.
MonKeybiz: lol it's so fun to watch you two argue... ^^
CrAzYArtist: How am I going to face him tomorrow?
RabidsingeR: Well did you enjoy the kiss?
CrAzYArtist: Huh? I don't know it was over too quick.
MonKeybiz: Let's put it this way, it was just a small peck right? But did you enjoy that brief moment with Nathaniel more than you did with Ty shoving his tongue down your throat?
CrAzYArtist: Do I really need to answer that?
RabidsingeR: Well you faced Ty after he stole your first kiss by a total make out... I'm sure you can survive Nath's little cute kiss.
CrAzYArtist: But the thing is I liked Ty because he was popular. I like Nathaniel because of who he is... and what if he...
MonKeybiz: Kori, just stop right there before you have a panic attack... Look Nathaniel isn't one to go around kissing random girls. That's obvious. So if he kissed you that means he must really like you. End of discussion. So stop doubting yourself and start daydreaming about how your children will look like! ;P
CrAzYArtist: SAVANNAH KNIGHT!
RabidsingeR: Wow Savannah, I think that's the longest message I've ever seen from you... I'm impressed.
MonKeybiz: Thank you! Thank you!
RabidsingeR: I claim Godmother on those future kids!
MonKeybiz: Hey that's mine! You're going to be their true aunt one day!
CrAzYArtist: Savannah... *W*
MonKeybiz: You know what I notice? I've noticed neither of you denying the fact that one day you two will be married to your crush... CX
CrAzYArtist: Pick out your tombstone, Savannah, I'm burying you tomorrow. ALIVE!
RabidsingeR: ...I'll get the shovels...
MonKeybiz: That's what you say all the time! But I chose marble!
Ah the joy of embarrassing your friends...
