~~ It Felt Like A Dream ♥ (part 14) “How are you? Haven’t seen you in a while”, she said trying to come in. “I’m good and you?”, I said blocking the door while faking a smile. “Good…can I come in?”, she asked confused. “Uh..i don’t think that’s a good idea…” “Why not?”, she said moving my arm and going inside. “Uhh…So what do you want?”, I asked awkwardly, trying my best not to sound rude. “Oh…nothing…just to hang out since we haven’t in a while and I gotta show you something!” “Umm…what is it? “Let’s go to your room and I’ll show you.” “That’s not a good idea either.” “Why are you so jumpy? Are you ok?” “Yeah..sure..perfectly fine, why wouldn’t I be? Why am I making it too obvious?”, I said really fast. “What?” “…nothing.” She started walking upstairs and into my room. I just let her and kept hoping she didn’t open the closet. I wonder how Ross is doing. She was sitting on my bed, and started looking through my laptop. Now Ross has to be even quieter. “so what did you want to show me?”, I asked, as I sat beside her. “Oh, these pictures…”, she showed me the pictures of the fair. My stomach turned. “Ohh…” “You’ve seen them before?” “I guess so…” “What an idiot. All she did was follow Ross around like a lost puppy.” “Um…she probably had a reason, I mean she is a fan.” “So, she looked pathetic. Pretty much all of these pictures are of her and Ross.” I closed the laptop and set it aside. “Why don’t you make yourself a snack. Anything you want. You know where everything is anyway.”, I told her. “Ok! Thanks”, she said as she strolled downstairs to my kitchen. As soon as she started going down the stairs I shut the door and opened the closet door immediately. “Ross, are you ok?”, I asked while I helped him out. “Yeah, I’m ok, I was a little squished, but I’m good”, he said as he smiled. “Good, well we don’t have much time until you have to get back in there”, I said laughing. “Yeah I know”, he then embraced me. I then put my arms around his neck and he put his arms around my waist. He kissed me slowly, but after about 30 seconds, Avalon walked in. She dropped her food and covered her mouth. “HUH?!”, she yelled. We immediately broke apart. “No, Av!”, I said back. “But—wha…? You…and hi-m-m!? What’s happening here? Why didn’t you tell me, Lucy?!”, she yelled back, tear already running down her cheek. My heart broke. I should of told her. “Let me explain! Ross…and I….are dating….that was me…in those pictures”, I said slowly. “How could you?!”, she ran out crying. Why me? “Wait! Avalon! Come back!”, I yelled out but it was too late. I ran up to my room and into Ross’ arms. I should of told her before, she is my best friend and I made her cry. “What do I do now?”, I ask Ross, while I dig my face in Ross’ shirt. “I really don’t kow…”, he said. “Well, I’m not gonna think about it now, I gotta get to my dance class”, I said as I wiped the tears away and started gathering my things. “You go to dance classes?” “Yeah, why are you so surprised?” “Oh..no reason, can I go with you?” “Uh..sure? haha” I was scanning my closet when Ross’ phone loudly vibrated. “Oh god…” “What? Who is it?” “It’s Nicole, the girl I told you about this morning.” “Oh..”, I said shaking my head while still scanning my closet. “What did she say?” “Uh…she asked me when to see her again.” “Oh…so are you?” “No! but I just hope she doesn’t end up looking for me.”, he sighed. “Oh, ok, so let’s go to my dance class.” We got out of my house and headed for the dance studio nearby. We got there and I told Ross to sit on one of the chairs in the back. From the mirror I saw Ross take out his iPhone to record me. “Why?”, I said laughing. “Why not?”, he said as he winked and smiled. I turned around and started exercising. Then after about 5 minutes of exercising we started the routine we have been practicing for 2 days. We’re supposed to perform it in a talent show for this school. Thank god Avalon, Taylor, or Stella came. Ross kept recording me while we rehearsed. I saw Ross again from the mirror and he turned to the side where the front door was and suddenly stopped recording and went to the bathroom. What was that about? I turned to the door and saw this beautiful tall girl with long, silky blonde hair and crystal blue eyes. She was honestly very pretty. I kept looking around to see if Ross came out of the bathroom but there was no sign of him. I got my phone and called him. He answered after 3 rings. “Ross what’s wrong, why did you run to the bathroom?” “Uh…cuz I saw someone that I really didn’t wanna see.” “Who?” “Uh, the girl that came in with blonde hair.” “Oh, her? Why? What happened?” “That. Is. Nicole.” “What?! THAT is Nicole?!” “Yeah…” “Oh… what is she doing here?! so are you gonna come out?” “I have honestly no clue and are you crazy?! She is gonna see me and be all over me…well I mean you can’t blame her.”, he said nervous then got a bit conceded at that last part. I did giggle a little though. “Then just stay away from her as much as you can, come on.” “Ok, fine.”, he hung up and a couple seconds later he came put looking down. “Ok, just go sit down and be careful.”, I said to him while he sat down. He started recording me again and I smiled. I started dancing again and from the mirror I saw Ross smiling widely and moving to the music. “Ok, take 5 everyone!”, yelled the instructor, Camila. I went over to Ross. “So…did you like the routine?”, I said smiling at him. “No…. I LOVED it! You dance amazing!”, he said as he stood up and hugged me. “Thanks! Haha”, I said as I hugged him tighter. I suddenly heard a voice from behind. “ROSS!!!!”, she yelled. “Oh no…”, Ross said annoyed yet worried. I turned and saw someone run into Ross’ arms. It was Nicole. “Nicole…! What are you doing here.”, Ross said trying to sound excited, but sarcastically. “Taking dance classes, silly. Duh. So how have you been, baby? You haven’t answered my texts.”, she said as she pinched his cheeks. I was actually a little jealous. She was so gorgeous and in my opinion, I don’t think I’m that pretty. “Good, and you? And sorry I have been busy.”, Ross said trying to sound as sweet as he can. “Good too, and oh come on, you can never be busy for me.”, Nicole said selfishly. Ross just shook his head. Nicole put her arm around his arm and started walking away. I got kinda mad so I followed them until they stopped walking. I grabbed Ross’ arm and brought him to the back again but Nicole grabbed his other arm and stopped me. “Uh? What are you doing? And who are you?”, she asked, in a mean tone. “Uh, I’m taking him to the back and I’m Lucy…his girlfriend.”, I said trying to top her on what she said and make her look surprised. As planned…she did. “Girlfriend?” “Yes.” “Hmm.”, she said and then let go of Ross. Camila told us to get back in position and then turned on the music. We rehearsed 3 more times and then started gathering our stuff to leave. I told Ross I was going to the bathroom. I got in and immediately started putting water all over my face because I was sweating a lot. i lifted my head and looked in the mirror and saw Nicole behind me. “Girlfriend…huh?”, she said as she started walking towards me. “Yeah, got a problem?”, I said as I turned around to her and fought back. “Why?” “What do you mean why?”, she put her hands on my shoulders and turned me to the mirror. “Well, I mean…why would a guy like him go out with a girl like….you?”, she said making a face at me. I started feeling a bit insecure. “Well, obviously i’m not what you think I am because Ross is with me and…not…you.”, I gave her a sarcastic smile at her and started to walk out. I was opening the door and she pulled my hair back and threw me to the floor, I yelled while holding me head. She started kicking me and I kept yelling but no one would hear me because no one came in. Suddenly I felt a hard punch on my face and I blacked out.
