I packed my things away, and I was sure that Tana was right. It was an accident that his hand moved onto my waist. Duncan just probably didn't realize. Last book in, and I felt a soft hand grab tightly onto mine. I looked up at Duncan, he had a huge smile painted on his face and we started walking out the door. I snapped back round to Tana, looking at him in question; Should I or shouldn't I?! He put a thumbs up at me and smiled. I gulped and trusted his judgement, after all, he was a bloke so he would know more about Duncan than me.
We hid behind the science bloke like last time, and he gently placed a hand on the side of my cheek. My heart was racing with love, excitement and nervousness.
"You're so beautiful." he whispered softly to me. I grinned, with the nervousness starting to fade.
"And you're so caring." I replied back, and our lips collided gently. I hadn't much experience in kissing before, I hadn't had a boyfriend up until yesterday. But I knew what the difference between a snog and a kiss was. I could feel his tongue making his way into my mouth like a snake, leaving me a bit uncomfortable. But I kept going, I had an uncontrollable urge to keep going, for some reason. I don't know what was coming over me. That's when it happened again. That curious hand was moving downward faster and faster. I snapped out of it quickly, grabbing his hand off of me and retracting my lips away from him. He looked at me with sadness, his eye brows at an angle upwards.
"I thought you loved me...?" he muttered. I felt bad now, because he was only doing what he was doing because he loved me.
"It's just going too fast. I'm not ready for that at all yet."
"But if we're both in love with each other, why fight it? Come on, let's keep going." his face moved closer to me again, and I slowly crept my head closer to his, temptation was over whelming. But it seemed I hadn't fully snapped yet. I retracted again, and took a step away from him this time to say no, fully. He then grabbed my shoulders tightly with an angry and foul glare in his pupils. I froze.
"You never loved me did you?" he groaned, tightening his grip on my shoulders. I was so scared, he was getting violent.
"I did love you..." I squeaked, I was too scared to look at him. My legs felt weak from fear chopping away at them.
"DID?! You don't now?" he hissed. I was hyperventilating so quickly that I lost the rhythm for it.
"Don't... let go of me." I whispered, moving my head even further away from him like south and north.
"It's that Tana kid isn't it?" I gulped in, I didn't answer. "Answer me bitch! YOU FANCY THAT TANA BOY DON'T YOU!!" I slapped him hard. I had never been violent with anyone before but I guess instinct took over me. He flinched and let go of me, freeing me to run for the hills. I ran and ran and ran and ran. I didn't stop. Not looking back once. I went to go find Tana, he would know what to do with in this situation. He always had a plan for everything. The most trusted head I could turn to.
I saw him from around the corner of the English block, and I picked up the pace.
"TANA!" I screamed. I was getting closer to him and he turned around in confusion.
"Jess?" he replied back. I picked it up to the maximum, hiding behind him and ducking. I knew Duncan was following me, I could hear him. Yet I kept my eyes shut, not daring to peep round. That's when I heard that low voice that I didn't want to hear at all; let alone Tana.
"TANAAA!!" I heard. I was certain Tana was gunna make a run for it like I did, leaving me open like an injured Zebra to a lion. But he didn't move. Not an inch.
"What do you want Duncan." he said bravely. He was standing up to him! The meanest and biggest guy I had seen and he stood there, to protect me!
"Your head... Meet me on the main field tomorrow lunch time. If you don't, you'll regret you'd been born!" he growled. Oh God, what had I done?! He's going to kill Tana for sure! Run Tana! Just leave me for your sake!
"I'll be there. Count on it." What? Did he just accept a fight with... Duncan! Still to protect me. How... brave. Tears were forming in my eyes, tears of joy. If it wasn't for Tana, I'd be minced meat right now. I stood up and hugged him tightly, nearly squeezing the life essence out of him. I gently spoke to him, crying into his shoulder with joy.
"Thank you... Thank you so much..." I huffed.
