*Setting takes place in a nightclub where Alexa and Carlos are having a gathering with their bridesmaids and groomsmen the night before their wedding.*
"Are you gonna sit here and pout all night?" Alexa asked.
"What? Uh no, I..." Kalel stuttered.
"Good because we're suppose to be having fun." Alexa explained.
"Babe!" Carlos called as he came walking towards them, followed by Logan, Kendall, a few others...And James.
"Hey!" Alexa said and kissed Carlos.
Everyone began to mingle and approach the floor to dance.
Suddenly a voice said, "Well if it isn't Kalel Kitten!" James said.
Kalel Kitten. Thats what he used to call her when they were together, she couldn't help but to choke on her drink.
She set her glass down and looked up, "Hey...Y-you."
Don't do this Kalel! She thought to herself. Don't fall for him. You'll just get hurt.
"So I hear we're partners." He said as his eyes flashed her a glance.
Ow. It actually hurt how handsome he looked tonight. She knew it was gonna be even worse tomorrow, all dressed up in a suite and tie.
"Kitten?" James placed a hand on her shoulder.
"Hmm?" She said starstruck, she realized she'd been fantasizing about him and freaked out and spilled her drink all over her dress.
James quickly got up, "Let me get some napkins."
"No! No. I-I'm okay." Kalel said and patted her dress awkwardly.
Kalel you idiot! She thought to herself.
"You're just gonna sit like that?" James asked confused.
Kalel couldn't let herself fall back into his trap. She knew what she had to do.
"Look James we're partners and thats it. Nothing more. We're not even friends okay? I honestly don't want anything to do with you!" Kalel shouted.
People around them began to stare.
"Uh...Yeah, course...Sorry." James said rubbing his neck embarrassed. He got up and walked away.
*Later that evening.*
"Alexa." Kalel tapped her shoulder.
She turned around.
"I'm gonna go back to the hotel. I'm tired..." Kalel said.
"Aw. Well get some sleep! Got a big day tomorrow." She smiled.
"Yeah." Kalel sighed and walked toward the exit.
As she walked outside she saw James sitting on the curb.
"James?" She said.
He turned and looked.
"Hey." He said.
She walked over and sat next to him.
"Look I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings."
"If you really don't wanna be partners I can just ask Alexa if you can walk first and I'll walk behind you. No contact or anything." James said.
"James I want you to be my partner okay? And I guess my friend." She teased.
"So where are you going?" He asked.
"Uh back to the hotel." She said.
"Me too. Wanna take a cab together? James asked.
"Sure." She smiled.
*They were now in the cab and arriving at the hotel.*
"That'll be $22.00 even if the two of you are splitting it." The cab driver said.
"Okay." Kalel said and reached for her purse.
"I got it." He smiled and handed the man the money.
Uy that smile. Makes my heart melt every time! Ugh and I forgot how much of a gentlemen he was! Do I just spill and tell him I still have feelings for him or act tough and stay "friends" she wondered to herself.
They took the elevator to their floor. Alexa had arranged for everyone that was part of the wedding to stay on the same floor.
"What room are you in?" James asked as he took out his room key and opened his room, 2J.
"Uh 8J, right down the hall." She said looking at her room key, wishing it was closer to James's.
"You gonna go to bed or you wanna watch a quick movie?" James asked.
"I could go for a movie." She smiled.
"Cool." He pushed open the door.
They walked in and set some of their stuff down.
James began to take off his shirt and change right in front of her, like he used to when they were dating.
Kalel caught herself staring and asked, "Hey do you mind if I take a shower? I'm all sticky and wet."
He laughed at the dirtiness of her question, "It's fine as long as you don't mind if I take some clothes off. I sleep in my boxers."
"Yeah I remember." She blushed and walked into the bathroom.
*About 20 minutes later.*
Kalel walked out of the bathroom in her undergarments and a towel she was drying her hair with.
"Alright so all they have on demand is some weird foreign movies. Buuut lucky for you I'm smart and I brought some movies of my own. So The Breakfast Club or Hunger Games?" He asked and turned to look at Kalel.
He swallowed hard, "Um...I mean, lucky me. Heh."
"What?" She looked down, "Oh my god! I'm so sorry! I didn't have any spare clothes they're all down the hall in my room. I guess I forgot we weren't actually together anymore and I can't just walk out of the shower like this. Sorry, I just felt so comfortable. Like when we used to date." She said and wrapped the towel around her.
James got up, "No, don't be sorry."
He walked towards her and placed his hands on her hips and brought her body close to his.
"I missed this." He said and pushed her hair behind her ear.
"Y-you did?" Kalel stuttered.
"Yeah." He said and began to slowly kiss down her neck.
