We walked into the hall and there were only about 20 people now (including Ana and Liam) and I knew all of them. As soon as we stepped inside, everyone turned their attention towards me and Damien. Their gazes first landed on both of our faces and then they travelled down to our hands which were linked. I kept my head high and sneaked a quick glance at his face and saw him smirking mischievously at the room. That’s when I realised that this wasn’t the boy who shared his fear with me, this wasn’t the boy who was super-playful with me, this was the boy who had the “Fuck you” attitude that Ana told me about.
Hayley and I walked inside. Ok, time to wear my mask. Everyone was staring at me, like more than usual because I had her by my side. I looked at Hayley and saw that this wasn’t the vulnerable girl who opened up to me, this wasn’t the sweet girl that had me chasing after her, this was the girl with that “I’m a bitch, it’s very obvious!” attitude who always held her head high and didn’t give a fuck about what others thought, this was the girl who had me swooning over her, the one who had me picturing her naked. I was proud of her. She will be perfect as a Queen.
We walked towards Liam and Ana who apparently looked like they were in the middle of a making-out session in the corner of the hall.
“We weren’t interrupting anything, were we?” I asked them both sarcastically and both their faces flushed causing me and Damien smirk.
“You two do know that there are about 20 other people in this room right now, right?” Damien chimed in. We both chuckled that caused our Bonds’ faces to turn to a dark shade of red.
“So, you two did come together after all!” Liam said, trying to change the subject.
“Yes, but don’t try to turn this around on us,” Damien said.
“Yeah, you two were the ones who were trying to swallow each other just a second ago!” I said, feeling very proud for thinking of the comeback.
“Don’t worry! You two would be doing these same things in probably a few days.” I honestly wanted to punch Ana for what she just said but I controlled myself.
“Wow, Ana, you really know how to embarrass me!” I shot back.
“I know and that’s why you’re my best friend!” she said, causing me smile smugly.
“Yeah, and you’re mine because?” I asked pretending to think.
“iCarly!” Liam and Damien said together.
“Huh. Never thought boys would like that stuff.” I replied.
“Men!” Damien said.
“Yeah, and the show is pretty enjoyable!” added Liam. Both of them playfully glared at me and Ana, causing us to giggle.
I quickly turned my attention to Liam and asked, “So, you asked me to be here this early because of needing help with setting up stuff or because of you screwing up the music?”
“The music?” he answered. Seriously? Why is everyone answering my questions with answers that sounds a lot like questions?
“I’ll get the playlist!” I huffed in annoyance.
“Thank you! Thank you, so much!” Liam almost squealed like a girl.
“Calm down there!” Damien said.
“Yeah, we don’t want you going around cheering with pompoms next!” I contributed.
“Sorry, that can’t keep my excitement down for The Best Party Ever!” Liam declared.
“Well, as much as I’d like to continue this conversation, I need Ana for setting up the speakers!” I said, grabbing her arm while she blew a flying kiss to Liam and he caught it. Yeah, I know this is even cheesier than Damien! I pretended to gag that caused Ana to say, “Don’t be jealous! I’m pretty sure that Damien and you are going to do way more than this. Like- “
“Morgana Rosette Colins! Don’t you dare finish that sentence!” The boys laughed out loud because we were only a few steps away from them. My life is getting pretty embarrassing…
