12. Chapter 12

    I rubbed the back of his neck gently. "I'm not as great as you think I am."

    Alex let go of me and looked me in the eyes. "What do you mean?" I looked away from him as he spoke, looking down at my hands. He grabbed my face and turned me towards him. 

     I looked him in the eyes and sighed. "Nothing. Never mind. Let's head inside." 

     Alex gave me a weird look but didn't say a word. I got out of the car and walked over to Alex's door, waiting for him to get out. He got out and walked over to the door of the ice cream parlor, not waiting for me. I quickened my pace to catch up to him.

     "Hey dude, slow down. I might have long legs but I'm not that fast." I said as I caught up to Alex at the counter. "Well maybe you should try being faster for once." Alex said, looking down at me. Something seemed off, maybe it was because I hadn't answered him when he asked what I had meant. I ignored that thought, ordering my ice cream and letting Alex order his. I paid for both of them and we sat down at one of the booths in the parlor. 

    "How are you feeling? Any better?" I asked Alex, eating my ice cream. Alex sighed, licking his ice cream. "I don't know. I didn't think about the whole situation while we were bowling, but now it's starting to stress me out a little bit. I should be fine."

     "Are you sure you'll be okay? I worry about you a lot." I looked down at my ice cream, watching it melt slowly. "Yeah. It isn't like the world will end." Alex chuckled.

     "Yeah." I mumbled, still feeling worried. Alex seemed a little reserved, but then again he didn't really share much of his feelings very often. Maybe I can get him to talk to me about it more when I stay with him tonight.


     Back at the house~

     Alex and I walked inside to find all the guys passed out on the couches. Zack was curled up into a ball on one end of the couch while Rian was sitting up, sound asleep. Jack was on the other couch, limbs everywhere and he began to stir as Alex and I entered the house. 

    "Hey you guys. What time is it?" Jack asked groggily, sitting up slowly. I looked over at the clock on the oven. "It's 11:48. And why were you guys all so tired?"

    "I'm not really sure." Jack scratched his head tiredly. "We got home and decided to watch some TV. Clearly we were exhausted by that amazing bowling match."

    "Well maybe you were all tired because of how much Cassidy kicked your asses." Alex laughed, walking over to the fridge to get some water.

    "She didn't kick our asses. I think we all did great." I heard Rian mumble. "Oh hey look, Rian's alive!" I exclaimed, leaning over the couch and looking at his face.

    "Yes I'm alive. But I think Zack might swallow us all." We all laughed, hearing Zack snore loudly. 

    Zack began choking on his snores, waking himself up. We all began dying of laughter and somehow Alex had managed to laugh that hard that he fell over, causing us to laugh harder.

    "What's so funny?" Zack said, rubbing his eyes. I walked over to Zack sat on the floor in front of him, running my fingers through his hair. "We were laughing at you because you choked and woke yourself up but then Alex fell over so we laughed at him."

    "Oh wow you guys are mean. I could've choked to death and you guys would all stand there, laughing." Zack spoke, pretending to be upset. I giggled. "Aw Zacky, we only laughed because we knew you'd be fine. If something was actually wrong, we would've done something. Trust me. Don't get all emotional about it."

    Zack rolled his eyes and leaned over the couch to hug me. I laughed and hugged him back. "Aw is someone still a little bit tired?" Zack nodded.

    "Here's an idea. How about all of you sleepyheads go to bed." I suggested. Rian and Zack both nodded. But Jack protested. "I'm not even tired now. It's your fault."

     "Wow. Rude. Rian and Zack are planning on going to bed, so maybe you should too." I walked over and sat next to Jack as Zack and Rian headed into their rooms. "But I don't wanna go to bed." Jack whined, pouting. "I wanna cuddle."

    "Jack, please go to bed? Why do you want a cuddle?" I questioned as he leaned on my shoulder. "Because I like cuddles."

     I glanced over at Alex who was standing next to the couch, looking at me and Jack. "Go on with Jack." Alex mouthed.

     I shook my head and whispered in Jack's ear. "Jack, please? Alex is feeling really down and I want to see if I can talk to him. I'm staying with him tonight but if you want, I can cuddle you tomorrow if he's feeling better. Okay?"

     Jack nodded and stood up. "Well I'm headed to bed." He walked over to Alex and hugged him. "Goodnight Alex."

     "Night." Alex replied, letting go of Jack so he could go to his room. He turned to me. "Come on, lets go to my room."

     "Why don't we sleep in the game room tonight?" I asked. The game room was a room downstairs that consisted of a flat screen TV and a few game consoles. It also had a large fold out couch for whenever we had guests over. 

     "Well I guess we could. Why?" Alex sat down next to me, twirling his hair. "It's farther away from the rest of the guys' rooms so we won't wake them up and there's a giant TV so we can watch movies."

     "Okay I guess we can sleep down there if you want." Alex yawned. I nodded and got up from the couch, walking over to the linen closet and grabbing multiple blankets and pillows. Alex shuffled over to the cabinets, grabbed random bags of chips and candies. Once we had everything we needed, we headed downstairs to set everything up.
