Chapter 8


I was about to lose my shit with Trevor sitting so close. I could feel his eyes on me and it was driving me crazy. I looked at my phone for the longest time desperately hoping it would ring, bing, anything. Raven had been on the dance floor for the last two songs, with no signs of slowing down. Jason and Carrie had passed our table on the way to the dance floor and true to his word Jason had not spoken or acknowledged me.

My heart hurt, and I felt stupid for feeling that way. I pushed him away. That had been my choice, how could I blame him from trying to move on.

“Can I have this dance?” Stephen asked holding his hand out to me.

What the heck was Stephen doing here? Did I really care? I should be thanking my lucky stars that he was here to save me.

Stephen cleared his throat pulling me out of the daze I was in. I looked up and was shocked to see how drop dead gorgeous he was tonight.

I placed my hand in his and stood up. He walked me to the dance floor lacing his fingers with mine in the process. I knew that all eyes were on us. Stephen was not someone you could ignore, he pulled me close and wrapped his arms around me. He swayed skillfully with the beat, looking deeply into my eyes.

What the hell was going on here?

He leaned down and placed a quick kiss on my lips confusing me even more.

“Relax beautiful, I’m just putting on a show for the two idiots over there.” He said turning me so that I caught a glimpse of Trevor and Jason. They both looked ready to explode, they wore identical frowns.

“It really is sad, I kind of feel bad for them.” Stephen said chuckling. It must suck to see the girl you want so bad, in another man’s arms.” He said pulling me closer.

“How can someone so good looking be so devious? I asked wrapping my arms around his neck smiling.

Why couldn’t I fall for him? He was everything a girl could want and yet I felt nothing for him. I was positive that he felt the same way. Our close friendship was as strong as it was because there was no romantic feeling.

“Wow, I didn’t think that you could look any hotter. But boy was I wrong. So not fair! You look like that and I look like this.” I said pointing to myself.

He laughed making me laugh and before we could help it we were both laughing.” You are so dramatic Sky.” He said running his fingers down my face.

“You’re the most beautiful girl in this room.” He said kissing me softly.

“If that doesn’t drive those morons crazy I don’t know what will.” He whispered in my ear.

“Your evil,” I replied playfully.

We were so wrapped up in our conversation that I did not hear Raven walk over with Trevor.

“Can I cut in,” Raven said with a huge grin on her face.

“Sure,” I said starting to walk away.

“Let’s just switch partners,” she said pulling me back.

Trevor extended his hand to me and I stared at it for what seemed like forever.

“Go ahead Sky, I’m not the jealous type.” He said winking at me.

Trevor frowned looking over at Stephen angrily. I put my hand in his before I could change my mind and he pulled me close. The tension between us was thick and I did my best to not look up at him. The awkward silence was getting to be too much for me. I needed for this song to be over. I needed to be away from him.

“Congrats, I bet your happy to be done with high school. Do you know where you’re going to college?” I asked trying to break the awkward silence. I knew that he was waiting for me to look up at him, but I was afraid to make eye contact.

“Is it that hard to look at me,” He asked tilting my head up to look at him.

Those eyes, those beautiful blue eyes displayed so much emotion that I had to fight with myself to not look away.

“It eats me up inside to see you with him. I hate him because he gets to touch and kiss you while I can’t.” He said softly.

I didn’t know how to respond to what he said. All of this was just too much to process. I didn’t know if I had feelings for Trevor. I mean I was not going to say that he didn’t affect me, because I would be lying. I was a mess, and I clearly was not ready to deal with Trevor and how intense he was.
