"Liam!" I looked up from the book I was reading to see Danielle waving me over. I walked over and gave her a quick peck on the lips.
"Ready to go?" I asked
"Not quite." she said, pulling me over to a bench. She pointed at the door of one of the dance rooms. "That's Hallie's pointe class."
"Ok?" I replied. "And..?"
"And! We need to talk to her!"
"Danielle," I started "what is this about?"
She sighed and looked me striaght in the eyes. "She's going to homecoming with her ex when she SHOULD be going with HARRY!"
"What? Now why would Hallie do such a thing?" I wondered
"Cause Harry never asked like we told him to!" she said. Danielle and I were the only ones ok with Harry dating Hallie. In fact, we had been trying to get them together since the begining of this whole mess.
"So what's the plan?" I asked, but right then Hallie's class let out.
"Just follow my lead," Danielle whispered. "Hal!!" Hallie looked up from her phone and smiled at us. We walked over to her. "Hey Hal! How was class?" Danielle asked.
"Good," she awnsered, looking backat her phone.
"Something wrong?" I asked her.
"My ride canceled on me." Hallie answered.
"Well, why don't you ride with us!" I said, putting my arms around both girls.
"Oh, you don't have to..." she started
"Come on Hal!" Danielle pulled her out from under my arm and dragged her to my car. The girls sat in the back and shoved their dance bags in the passenger's seat. "So, who are you going to homecoming with, Hal?" Danielle poked Hallie as she asked.
"Jack." she answered quietly.
"Really?" Daniele asked, as if she didn't already know. "I thought you'd go with Harry..." she said, looking at Hallie out of the corner of her eyes.
"He never asked," she shrugged it off. "Why don't we turn on some music." Hallie leaned into the front and turned on the radio. Want U Back came on and the girls started singing along at the chorus. "No else can have ya! I want you back! want you back!" Danielle stopped singing and all you could hear was Hallie and the radio. "Please? This ain't even jealousy! Uhh..." she stopped. "Dani! You can't just leave me hanging."
"Sorry," Danielle said, "You're really good though."
"Sure." Hallie said, lightly punching Danielle.
"She's not lying," I pitched in.
"Yeah," Danielle said "You know what would be cute, if you and Harry sang together."
"Great idea!" I said, how did she think of that?
"I'll think about it." Hallie said, laughing at the idea. Then Danielle took my phone and texted someone. She handed it back and I read the reply at a red light.
From Me: You + Hallie duet? ~Dani:)
From Harry: How about you take care of that while I try not to kill Jack
Really Haz? Maybe he's the one we need to talk to.
