Chapter 20

Cassidy sneered at me from around Evan's back, snuggling up against his arm. "Come on Evan just forget about her, I want some cotton candy." Evan turned on her, glaring down at her. "Get off from me Cassidy; you can get your own damn cotton candy. I don't want anything else to do with you, don't you get it you were only something to bide my time with, we're through!"

Cassidy look shocked by his sudden outburst. "But Evan she can never compare to me, come on she's not even as pretty as I am." Her comment made Mike shake his head, Spencer, Evan and Liam to ball their fists glaring at her. "You know what Cassidy your right, Bex could never compare to you," Cassidy smirked cockily before Evan finished his comment. "Because she's so far above you, she's better than you in every way possible."

Then Evan took off after me I didn't get to much further down the walk-way from them when I felt someone grip my bicep, looking up my heart does a little flip to see Evan. "Evan what are you doing, let go of me right now!" Being stubborn Evan he didn't listen and just dragged me into the crowd for the rides headed to the Ferris wheel. "No we need to talk and we're going somewhere we can talk between just the two of us alright!" I sigh defeated allowing him to lead me wherever it was he wanted to go talk at.

When we got on the Ferris wheel I held onto the bar as we began to move, when we stopped at the top of the wheel I nervously looked over the edge to the ground, gripping the bar even tighter getting closer to Evan; I hate heights. Evan studying my face softly pushed a strand of my hair behind my ear. "Bex I'm sorry for what I did to Spencer, but I hate him being close to you. I'm afraid of losing you." I looked over into Evan's eyes surprised. "Evan you'll never lose me not really, you're my best friend and I love you," Evan smiled sadly a bit. "But that's the thing Bexley, I love you more than a friend you're the secret girl I've kept this whole time! You're my sunshine Bex, and you're something I want to get lost in for the rest of my life!" I stared at Evan with a million thoughts running through my head, I couldn't believe it I was the secret crush. "This is a joke right, Evan that's cruel and not funny at all." He gave me a lop-sided grin, stroking my cheek. "No joke Bex, I'm serious. I've been in love with you for years now but I was too afraid to tell you how I felt, afraid you to lose your friendship." He looked me in the eyes like he was mesmerized by me, smiling. "Bex I only dated Cassidy because I couldn't have you and I thought she'd help distract me from seeing Spencer creep up on you, I could see how close you two have gotten."

I couldn't help myself but laugh at the jealously in his voice when he mention Spencer. "Oh my god Evan you're really jealous of Spence aren't you!?" He wouldn't meet my gaze, cupping his cheek in my hand I made him look at me. "You've got nothing to worry about with Spence, Liam the one who was wiping his lip is the one Spencer loves." I let that sink in for a moment before I said anymore, feeling my heart flutter and butterflies take over my belly. When it sunk in what I told him he started smiling brightly at me. "I know this is kind of cheesy but Bex you were made for me, will you forgive me for being stupid and give me a chance?" I returned his smile, really happy for the first time in a long time with my best friend, nodding my head at him. "You know I can never stay mad at you for long, I really want to give us a shot Evan." He smiled brightly at me again before cupping my face in his hand slowly bringing his lips to mine. As his lips finally met mine I felt like I could fly, I was so happy, we were still kissing when it was our turn to get off.

There were a couple cat-calls and hoots, when we broke apart to find Spencer, Liam cheering us on and a poor Mike gawking at us. "Oh my god Evan, man you've got some balls on you, Adam is going to kill you." I frown not thinking about my brother and how he'd react to Evan and I being more than friends. Evan just smiled shrugging as he helped me off the Ferris wheel. "I'll handle Adam when the time comes, I'm just happy Bex forgave my stupid ways."

I stared up into the face of my best friend, the one person that I'd always been able to turn to and knew in that instant that I really did love him with all my heart and that no matter what came our way we'd battle it together and win.

The End.
