I was still shocked when I left the stage, but by now everyone is congratulating me and hugging me and talking for, like, a little bit. But then there was Laura. Oh sweet Jesus did she look mad.
"Hello.." she put a fake smile on, Ethan right behind her side.
"Hi Laura..?" I said.
I glanced at Ashton who was looking protective, "Can you, like, leave her alone..?"
"Oh, I would.. But she's got something of mine.."
"Like what?" Skyler pushed me back.
"Uhm, I'm afraid I can't say right at the.. Moment.." She said, eyeing Ashton.
"Back off, bitch." Luke threatened.
Ethan scooted forward, "What did you say?"
Luke made a face like, 'oh-you-know-I-said'. "I said.. Back off, bitch."
Ethan clamped his fists.
"You see? This is why you don't mess with me." Laura sailed her arms.
"Okay." I said.
"No one likes you.." she said, like she had nothing else to say.
"Really? Really? No one likes me? Please, no one likes you." I pointed at her.
She looked exposed. With a sour face along with the disappointment on the side, yeah, that face.
She opened her mouth to speak, but closed it briskly.
I shook my head, "Wow, Laura. 'Queen of the Bitches', 'Queen of the Flock of Jocks'.'-" I made air quotes. "-has nothing to say to the 'King and Queen of Prom of 2014'." I laughed.
Wait for it.. I've been waiting to say this for forever now, "Take her away."
And we just walked off. Like that.
"Holy shit!" Skyler whisper-yelled to me.
"I know!" I said amazed.
"I- just can't believe you said that like a speech." Ashton smiled.
"Now what shall we do?" Luke popped up.
"Celebrate." I announced.
But, that was the last we would see of Laura, for a while.
All the others went to Luke's, while we got dropped off at my house.
We walked into the muted house, that will soon be filled with punk-rock music of any artist.
"Do you want a change of clothes?" I said, stopping at the second staircase.
"Sure.. If we're going to be getting serious." he arched an eyebrow.
"I'll take that as a yes..." I smiled, turning my heel.
I changed into my favorite My Chemical Romance shirt and the most softest, most comfiest, sweats you would ever wear, it felt like wearing a cloud.
"Do you mind wearing my step-brother's clothes instead?" I asked walking out of my room.
"Sure." he echoed from the stairwell.
I threw a grey t-shirt and the newest sweats I've haven't seen Alex (step-brother) wear yet.
"Thanks.." he smiled pervertedly heading in my room.
A minute later he came out, "Comfy.." then, he hugged me.
"What now?" I asked, barely in his neck (he was so tall compared to me, okay?! I'm short..).
"We should eat, and um.. Do other stuff after that.."
We stopped hugging, and I looked at him, and smiled, "What other stuff?"
He raised his eyebrows. "You know what other stuff."
"Okay, okay. Let's go eat. Hope you don't mind ramen."
"Nah, ramen is good. Deliciouso." He smiled like he had a Mexican mustache. I laughed.
We had ramen in the living room watching some 'Adventure Time'. Laughing. Impersonating them. Just being boyfriend and girlfriend.
"Hey, I noticed we never had a date until tonight." he said acting all smart-icles.
I thought about it, the roof wasn't a date, or the bathroom, or anything else. "No, so this is like our first date?" I asked, just to make sure.
"Yeah, pretty much, and we never even planned a date."
"You don't have to date to be dating." I said, almost flinging my fork across the room.
The episode just barely ended when he said 'True.' But I was tired, it was almost 1:00 am, and I didn't feel like doing 'stuff '. So I just rested my head on his shoulder.
"Woah, hey, hey, I thought we were going to do 'stuff '!"
I closed my eyes, "Ash, I'm tired, and full, do you really want me to barf on your penis?"
"Well, no, but.... Okaaay." he whined. "We'll do 'it' tomorrow, for sure?"
I sighed. "Uhh.. You usually don't plan this stuff, either, Ashton, just so you know."
"Okay." he smiled closing his eyes.
