Dear Agony

I can't even anymore. Seeing them in the hallways, in our classes, at lunch, on Facebook and Instagram, and sometimes through my window when I'm lying around the house. It hurts like hell. I'm friends with them both but lately, it hurts more than usual. The moment I think I'm getting over them, I think of something or I see something, or some idiot says something, and it comes back full force.

(The title comes from the song Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin.)

9. Pinching, Teasing, And Maybe A Little Kissing?

(A/N Hey peoples! I'm feeling a bit better thanks to my blonde besties(chu should really haf blonde friends, they're miracle workers I swear) so here's chapter 8! Enjoy!)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Alex's POV

I woke up to Kaci sitting on my back and pinching me in random places. Huh, no wonder there were suddenly invisible crabs pinching me. I notice she doesn't realize I'm up so I keep my breathing even and wait for a few seconds. When I feel it's the right time, I flip us over and tickle her, "Say uncle!" She's panting hard but I know she won't go down easily, "N-n-never! You should've g-g-gotten up on t-time!" I smirk, pull her shirt up and do that thing people always do to babies on her stomach(A/N I forgot what it's called, sue me.) She goes crazy and is laughing and screaming, "Uncle! UNCLE! Haz I can't breathe!! Staaaaaaahp!" I smile at the nickname,I didn't think she would actually call me Haz. I don't stop though.This is her punishment for her pinching me.

When she was crying from laughing so hard I stopped and sat up. She took awhile to catch her breath and I just sat on her and smiled smugly, "I won." She glares at me and keeps panting. I think we both realize the position we're in at the same time, I'm straddling her with my hands on her chest and her's are on my hips from trying to push me off. We both blush bright red and look at each other. It's not as tense as I thought it would be but, there's something...different about the way she's looking at me right now. We stared each other in the eye and before we knew it, we were leaning in closer. When our lips were a centimeter apart, we both snapped back into reality and pulled away quickly. She blurted out,"I LIKE PIE!". We started laughing like crazy, the tension cleared and I crawled off her lap. We got dressed for school and then we were on our way.

After she drove us to school in my car(she's the only one I let drive besides Addy, not even Haley), we walked in with my arm around her shoulder as I shot glares at anyone who dared to look at us. I could hear them whispering and I caught some of the conversations, "I heard, they're already dating." "She let Kaci drive her car, she killed me one time because I looked at it for 5 seconds." Then I heard the grossest thing I've ever heard in my life, "I heard Haley and Alex are fucking on the side." I spun around so fast I almost knocked Kaci over. "What the fuck did you just say??" I knew exactly who said it, Alliyah Casey. The school snob. She and her 'loyal' followers were the only ones who had anything against the gay people at GWD. She scoffed and said, "Apparently you heard me. But in case you're 'friend' there didn't hear me. I said I heard that you and Haley are fucking on the side." She had a smug smile on her face and I couldn't help but want to wipe it off her face but, before I could, Kaci did it for me as if she had read my mind. She got in Alliyah's face and her voice was dripping so much venom it scared even me, "Do not ever let me hear about you spreading that bullshit around again, you hear me?" Alliyah looked like she had just pissed herself and I would've laughed if I was scared shit-less by Kaci's outrage. Alliyah took to long to answer and Kaci slapped her harder this time, "I fucking said, did. You. Hear me?" Alliyah nodded her head so fast I thought it would fall off. Kaci spun around to me and her face softened, she was near tears. I reacted without even thinking and pulled her into a huge, tight hug and she sniffed so quietly I barely heard it. Alliyah was still holding her swollen candy apple cheek as I led Kaci away and shot Alliyah a look that I've been told could curdle milk or make a professional wrestler wet his pants.

We decided to skip again. We let the principal know, he was up to date on everything he's a really cool guy, and headed off. This time to my house. My dad is an ass and has his own place while I stay with my mom. She's annoying at times but she's a mom. I ran around to the passenger side and held Kaci's door open. She blushed and linked her arm with mine as I lead her inside. We moved to a bigger house recently I have the top floor and Mom has the second floor. We go up to my new room and Kaci gasps when she sees the art walls covered with random paintings; some of her, some of both of us, and then just random doodles. She laughs hysterically and falls on my king-sized bedspread. "Otay, otay. I think I get it. My obsession with you is hilarious. Ha ha fucking ha."

Kaci's POV

I'm laughing so hard I can feel the tears running down my face but I don't stop them, it feels nice to laugh this hard. I haven't laughed like this in a long time. I can see Aly's starting to get mad, "A-awwww A-Aly!! I-I'm s-sorry, b-but its s-so a-adorable and f-funny!!" I break out in hysterics again and I'm holding my sides now. She's blushing now and it just makes me laugh harder. She sniffles and I immediately stop laughing. I look at her and realize she's crying. I look at the clock and its apparently 7:45pm. It must have taken longer to drive here than I thought, no wonder she always stays at Addy's. I pull her into a hug and shush her, "I'm sorry Aly. I didn't mean it." I realize she's laughing and I hit her on the head, "You lying bitch! You scared me! I thought you were really upset about it!" She's still laughing and I grab something off her nightstand and throw it at her. It misses by a mile and she starts laughing impossibly harder.

After about five minutes of laughing hysterically, she calms down. She shows me where the bathroom is and I take first shower, "But Kaciiiiiiii! I wanted first shower!" "Too damn bad! You should've thought of that before you tricked me!"

(A/N Skip both showers because just eww no)

After we shower, its around 9:30. We're both in over sized t-shirts with a pair of her boxers on. We have a Paramore/Flyleaf music dance party. We air-guitar and do the rocker chip hair whip. By 2am, we're both exhausted and we flop on the bed. We silently agree that it's time for bed.

We crawl into the same position we're in every night. Aly flips on My Heart by Paramore and I'm about to drift off when something occurs to me, she never even asked about what happened earlier. I hear her breathing deeply behind me and turn so I'm facing her. I cup her cheek in my hand and trace her lips with my thumb. She lets out a contented sigh and kisses my palm before opening her eyes and a shocked expression takes over her face. I chuckle and shush her, "Relax Aly. It's okay." I look from her eyes to her lips and back while she does the same. We both lean in and close our eyes at the same time. When our lips meet for the first time, it's electric. I can feel the electricity running through me and I can see the fireworks as we close our eyes. Its a small, brief kiss but in it, I feel so many things. I feel safe, happyness, love, all the things you should feel when kissing somebody. When I think about it, I never really felt that with Haley.

When we pull back, we're both breathless. She puts her hand over my hand still cupping her face and intertwines our fingers before moving it away. "That was......" I smile softly, knowing exactly what she's thinking, "Yeah. I know." She yawns and I remember we have school tomorrow. I kiss her softly one more time and turn around. She throws her arm over my waist again and pulls me close. She's out in record time.

It's not until she's asleep that I realize My Heart is still on repeat.

I drift off to her deep breathing and the feeling of her heartbeat against my chest.

Alex's POV

I wait until I'm sure she's sleep and then I whisper, "Kaci, I know you can't hear me right now but.....I love you. I know that you know I love you but I don't think I've ever actually told you." I laugh softly remembering the picture of us in her room, "Remember when I asked if we'd always be bestfriends? I've wanted to be more than friends since the summer after fifth grade. I can't help but wonder if I have a chance, you know? I know it's only been a few weeks since the break up but....I just really wanna be the one to put you back together after what she did. I know the best way to help would be to stay your friend for a few weeks and I'll try my best to wait, I promise you that. I love you Kaci."

I drifted off with a smile on my face, happy to have all that off my chest.

Kaci's POV

I can't believe it. She thought I was asleep, I wasn't. I knew she loved me but..since before fifth? That's almost three years! Honestly though, I find it cute and endearing. I love her too. I've come to terms with that and I'd love to date her but, she's right. We have to wait a few weeks, maybe a month.

If anybody breaks first, it'll probably be me.

My Heart restarts and I can't help but think, how ironic it is that Paramore's lead singer's name is Haley, when she sings out, This heart, it beats. Beats for only you. My heart is yours.

And after hearing that, I know that I wasted years of my life on Haley when I should've seen that the perfect person for me has been there waiting on the sideline with a broken heart all my life.

She's all I need now. All I'll ever need again. I just have to get over Haley first.
