After I left Dylans house the next morning and he reluctantly let me go home I crashed back in my bed. Probably 15 minutes later my phone rang and I picked up and heard Molly's squeal.
"The dance is tonight Zoe!!" She chirped through the receiver. I rolled my eyes at her enthusiasm.
"Soo, are you coming over here or are you going with mason?" I asked bored.
"Mason is driving me so you'll have to fend for yourself." She replied and i laughed and agreed before hanging up. I checked my clock and it was 2:34 which meant 3 and a half hours until the dance. I groaned and dragged myself out of bed and looked in the mirror. I ran my fingers through my long blonde hair and grimaced as i felt the grease. I stepped into my bathroom and turned on the shower and quickly striped and got in before the cold air hit my exposed body. As I washed my hair i mentally prepared myself for the 4 hours of sweaty bodies and loud music that was soon to come.
I turned the shower off and wrapped a towel around my body and ventured into my walk in closet finding something to wear tonight. I decided on some light blue denim short shorts and a pink tank that said 'Light em up' across the front in curses and slipped them on over my underwear. I blow dried my hair and admired it's lengthy waves. I didn't straighten my hair because i was pleased with it's natural appearance.I put some mascara and eye liner on and applied a coat of shiny lipgloss. It was 5:48 by the time i was finished everything so I grabbed my phone, key, and a 20 dollar bill and shoved them in my pocket, locking the door and getting in my car.
I pulled up to the school and payed my entry before making my way into the gym filled with dancing people. I wondered to myself if Dylan would show as I scanned the crowed for Molly. I spotted her near the back dancing with a group of people. She smiled as she saw me and raised her eyebrow, "Well don't you look hot." She stated, smirking. She pulled me into the crowd of dancing people.
A few songs into the dance a slow song came on and I scanned the crowd for Dylan. I didn't see him so i exited the gym and wandered down the hall ways, bored and having nothing to do. I heard some muffled giggles and kept walking.
When i turned the corner what I saw was the last thing i was expecting. Dylan had mackenzie pushed up against a wall, making out. I blinked back the oncoming tears and narrowed my eyes.
"You fucking asshole!" I spat. He turned toward me shocked and pulled away from Mackenzie, his eyes widening. She smirked at me and pulled him back and kissing him again. I turned away in disgust and ran down the hall. I heard his voice trailing after me and he grabbed my arm.
"Wait! Zoe wait!" He slowed down to a stop and i wrenched my arm free and crossed them.
"What." I sneered at him.
"Look I was just---" He began but I cut him off.
"Just fucking save it." I growled and walked away shoving the door to the gym open and walking back in, leaving him staring after me.
Dylans POV *earlier*
I was getting ready for the dance smiling just thinking about seeing Zoe. As I arrived and payed entry before joining the group of dancers. I couldn't see Zoe and that's when Mackenzie appeared behind me and tapped on my shoulder.
"Hey sexy, wanna go for a walk?" Before i could decline she grabbed my arm and dragged me into the hall and around a corner. She backed herself against the wall and pulled her arms around my neck and kissed me. I resisted at first but her nails dug into my neck pulling me into her.
"You fucking asshole!" A voice boomed behind me and I pulled back quickly to see Zoe standing there with pure anger and hurt on her face. Mackenzie smirked evilly before pulling me back to kiss her. Before I could pull away Zoe took off running down the hall. I shoved Mackenzie out of my way and raced down after her.
"Wait! Zoe wait!" I called after her and slowed to a stop as I grabbed her arm.
"What." She demanded her eyes narrowing.
"Look I was just-" But she cut me off before I could explain.
"Just fucking save it!" She snarled and walked back into the gym, leaving me staring there after her. I screamed and kicked the wall beside me in frustration.
I began walking after her once i calmed down my breathing and when I entered the gym I couldn't believe it. Zoe was in the middle of the grinding train as some guy was grinding against her ass.
"What the fuck are you doing Zoe?!"
I couldn't believe him! I saw the grinding train and smirked. Well if he's so caught up with Mackenzie he won't mind me doing this. I joined the end of the grind train and moved my hips to the beat. A guy game up behind me and started grinding on my ass, pushing me closer to the person in front of me. I didn't care right now.
"What the fuck do you think you're doing Zoe?!" Dylans voice yelled over the music as he wrenched me away from the chain of people. The guy behind me grabbed my arm pulling me back and Dylan swung his fist at his face, connecting it with his jaw. I once again wrenched myself free from Dylans tightening grasp and made my way over to Molly who was grinding with Mason. I envied them.
"Molly, babe, I'm gonna go home now." I said behind her and she just giggled.
"Okay, bye babe." She said smiling, showing no sign whatsoever of her removing her ass from his crotch.
I left the school and climbed into my car and drove home, tears threatening to cloud my vision. I put my car in park and went to go unlock the door. My eyes widened as I felt for my keys, not finding them. I pounded on the door once with my fist and sunk to my knees on my front step. They must have fallen out at the dance.
i called Molly twice and got voicemail both times. My parents were out of town and now I litterly had no one. I sighed and rested my head in my knees, letting the tears spill over.
I stayed like that for about an hour until I heard a car roll up my drive way. Dylan stumbled out, obviously hammered. I sighed and ignored him and he stumbled up to me.
"There you are babe!" He exclaimed.
"Go away," I breathed.
"Why?" He asked curiously and grabbed my bad wrist and I squealed with pain and began crying again. His eyes went wide and then soft and he let go gently. I wiped my tears and stood up dragging him to his car. He couldn't drive home drunk so I had to drive him. I drove and ignored him the whole time. When I pulled up to his drive I half carried half dragged him to the door, fishing his key out of his pocket and unlocking his door. I walked him up the stairs to his room and laid him in the bed.
"I'm sorry," he whimpered and i sighed. He looked up at me with sad eyes. "Look Zoe, I really am. But you have to let me explain to you what actually happened okay? But not when I'm piss drunk." He added. I sighed again and sat on the edge of his bed. I kept my distance but he wouldn't have it, he pulled me under the covers with him and held be so tight. It was like if he were to release his grip on me I would disappear. A few minutes later his breathing became even and I could tell he was asleep. I silently cried as I lay there. How could he do that to me. I involuntarily let out a whimper and he subconsciously pulled me against his chest. I finally gave in to sleep.
