7. Chapter 7

~~Bella was waiting in line for her coffee that Monday morning, she had history first thing and needed something to help her focus. Grateful that she didn't have to wait she ordered her coffee and dug around in her purse for some change.

"Bella!" A voice called out to her recognizing who it belonged to immediately.

"Dean, hi," she smiled once she turned to face him, that cocky grin of his spread across his face. Bella had been so occupied at the weekend that she hadn't given his proposal the other day any thought at all, to be honest the only person that had been on her mind was Liam. Hopefully Dean had forgotten all about it and wouldn't ask her again.

"Here, I got this," he told her, grabbing his wallet and paying for her coffee.

"Oh no, that's ok!" she insisted, but he had already paid and was now handing over her coffee. She thanked him as he followed her, walking away from the coffee cart.

"You didn't have to do that."
"Buying pretty girls coffee is what I'm good at," flashing her a cheeky grin.

"Is that so?" she replied, raising one of her eyebrows.

"Well on top of the other many things I'm good at, yeah," he winked.

Bella took a sip of her coffee and she tried to hide the blush that appeared on her face.

"So how you been doing?" he asked casually. She nodded her head at him before replying, "Pretty good, and you?"

"Not bad, but you know what would make today even better?" He stood in front of her so she stopped walking. She knew where this was going. "This weekend preferably?" he added.

"Dean," she sighed lightly.

"What do you say?" He half smiled, gazing into her eyes.

Bella couldn't understand why he was so persistent in asking her out? He could probably have anyone he wanted, it's not like he walked around unnoticed. A part of her wanted to say yes but another part of her knew she wasn't ready. There was also Liam, Bella couldn't deny she had feelings for him but she doubted he felt the same for her. Plus he had warned her about Dean and seemed pretty serious about it. Bella didn't know the specifics, except for him being a bit of a player, but from the way he had told her she knew there was another reason behind it.

"I can't, I'm sorry," Bella told him, gazing down the hall to avoid his eyes.

"Let me guess, you got the memo about me having a reputation with girls," he sighed, his eyes now meeting hers. "You know, you really shouldn't believe everything you hear Bella."

Bella felt slightly guilty as he said this. "It's not because of that." Well not entirely anyway. "I already gave you an answer, it hasn't changed."

"You really know how to make a guy work for it," he chuckled.

Is he serious she thought, a little taken back. If anything he's the one pushing and can't seem to take no for an answer.

"I wasn't making you," she stated.

"Bella, I was kidding!" he chuckled again.

"Look Dean," she started, becoming more serious now. "I'm kind of going through something right now and I'm trying my hardest to deal with it everyday. I just don't think I'm ready for anymore drama or complications in my life right now," she told him, not wanting to give away too much.

Dean gazed down at her thoughtfully before saying, "I'm not looking to complicate your life. Maybe it's just what you need." Seeing the confusion on her face he continued, "You know, take the edge off things a little."

He moved slightly closer to her before carrying on. "I can do that, if you let me." His tongue quickly darted out of his mouth and over his bottom lip. His eyes focused intently on hers. The gesture was somewhat sexy making her body heat up as he captured all of her attention on him. Bella looked away, suddenly remembering that they were still in the school halls, thankfully nobody was really paying them any attention. Dean soon gained her attention back as he moved in closer, her back now coming in contact with the wall behind her. He was so close now to the point where she could feel his breath lightly on her face.

"How will you ever find out if you don't take a chance?" he asked in an almost whisper, his attention now focusing from her eyes down to her lips. Bella held her breath, thinking he was going to kiss her, but to her surprise he just smiled at her, sucking on his bottom lip before slowly moving away from her. She wasn't sure if she felt disappointed or relieved at that point? It's not like she would have just let him kiss her right there in the halls... right?  She shook her thoughts away, feeling stupid. Of course she wouldn't have! What if Scott had seen them or Liam even? Would Liam even be mad she wondered? He did warn her after all so, she imagined he would be.

"I'll see you later," Dean muttered, not missing the seductive look he gave her before turning away.

Bella watched him walk away, her body still feeling like it was on fire. How many times was she going to have to turn him down before he stops trying? She couldn't decide whether or not he was being nice because he generally was interested, or if it was just a game that he played to get whatever it was he wanted?

"Looks like you're on someone's radar," someone said from behind her making her jump. Bella turned around to find Sam grinning mischievously at her.

"See how much fun it is being the new girl," Sam teased, linking their arms together as they walked towards the lockers.

"He's been trying to get me to go out with him for a while now and no matter how many times I reject him he still comes back for more! He sure has that whole persuasion thing going for him."

"Plus the fact that he's totally gorgeous doesn't help," she added, empathizing with her. "Yep."

"I'll tell you one thing though," she muttered seriously as they stood beside Bella's locker. "He sure has a reputation when it comes to girls."

"Yeah, so I've heard." Yet another person was telling her to stay away, maybe Liam wasn't exaggerating, maybe she really should be more careful. How was she supposed to do that though? He was the one who would constantly approach her not the other way around.

"All I'm going to say is be careful! He's definitely the type of guy who could break your heart. Trust me," she told her. Bella could have sworn she saw a look of hurt on Sam's face but she quickly replaced it with a half smile.

"I'll keep that in mind."


Bella turned to see Liam standing in front of them both and was immediately grateful that the lockers were supporting her back as she leaned against them, he looked amazingly attractive today. He stood there in his black leather jacket, dark blue jeans and a fairly tight black t-shirt smiling at her as he ran his hands through his messy hair.

She was standing a good foot away from him but couldn't help noticing how good he smelt. In fact that was the first thing that came into her head from the memory of bumping into him that first day, his smell. As weird as it may sound he had that irresistible scent about him, she wasn't sure if it was his deodorant, his cologne, his soap or just his natural scent?

She had the sudden urge to move closer to him and place her head in the crook of his neck so she could...wait what!  What are you thinking she scolded herself trying to snap out of it.

"Hi Liam," she replied, trying to sound as calm as possible without giving away the affect he had on her. "Uh, you know Sam?" Well duh they go to the same school, of course he does! What was wrong with her today?

"Yeah, how you doing?" he smiled politely at Sam.
"I'm good thanks," she smiled, noticing Bella's strange behaviour.
"Well I actually can't stay, got a math test I need to get too," rolling his eyes before they fell back on Bella.

"Uhh! I'm so bad at math!" she groaned, scrunching her nose up in the process.
"Me too," Sam chimed in. "It's got to be one of the worst lessons of the entire school year!"
"Absolutely!" Bella nodded agreeing with Sam.

"You know Liam, if you need some cheerleaders to cheer you on while taking that test, I know two cheery people who would happily oblige," she grinned widely making Liam chuckle.

"I'll definitely keep that in mind," he replied, turning to face Bella once more. "I'll see you later," he smiled at her.

"Good luck," she replied, giving him a smile of her own and getting a wink in return from him before he left.

Bella was relieved to see his mood had uplifted since they last spoke. She was so confused as to why he changed so quick, and what really confused her was that she couldn't figure out what it was? Whether he was upset, angry or both? But why would he have been? He was so mysterious sometimes, but she couldn't help thinking that it made him somewhat more attractive.

Realizing that she was still staring in the direction where Liam had been, Bella slowly turned her head to see Sam smiling at her with one eyebrow raised. "Do you like him?" she asked.

Bella chuckled while turning to open her locker. "We're just friends. Besides there's no way I'm his type," she explained, hoping she wouldn't ask again.

"You sound disappointed!" she smiled, making Bella turn to her. "I'm not!" she blurted out instantly.
"Uh huh," Sam replied sarcastically.

Bella ignored her and continued rummaging through her locker, grabbing the books she needed for her next class.

"So you don't like him?" Sam continued to ask, watching Bella carefully.

"I...I..," she stuttered.

"Because I'm pretty sure that he likes you," she stated.

Bella gazed at Sam before answering, "We're just friends, that's all." She knew that he could never like her like that, right? No way, he couldn't.  He was too good for her. A girl like her could never get a guy like that!

"Come on! You have to admit, the guy is hot!" Sam tapped her arm lightly. Bella rolled her eyes at Sam in amusement. "I guess."

"You guess?"

"Ok, he is...pretty hot, there happy?"

"So why not make a move?"

Bella closed her locker before leaning sideways against it now staring at Sam. "What do you want me to do jump him?" she joked.

"Well if your in that much of a hurry!" she teased, making Bella gasp and lightly smack her arm making them both laugh.

"Though know that I think about it, jumping him isn't such a bad idea after all." she winked at Bella making them both laugh again.


That evening, Bella was patiently waiting for Scott to come over. Her mum had a meeting out of town and wouldn't be back until tomorrow, so Scott was coming to spend the night so she wasn't alone. The pizza she ordered had just arrived and she had the urge to steal a slice before Scott arrived but decided against it, she would wait. When the doorbell finally rang, she happily skipped to the door.

"Hey," she greeted Scott as she opened the door.
"Hey," he replied, giving her one of his bear hugs. "God, it's freezing out there!"

"Well you made good timing, the pizza just got here like five minutes ago, so it's still really hot," she told him as she headed into the kitchen.

"Good, I'm starving!" Throwing his coat over the banister stairs before following her into the kitchen. Bella playfully rolled her eyes and chuckled, when was he not hungry?

She grabbed two soda's out of the fridge and brought them into the living room while Scott fetched the plates. She flicked through the channels on TV to see what movies where showing.

"Would you be mad if we watch 'Bridget Jones Diary'? I just love that movie so much!" she asked him as he sat down, handing her a plate and placing a slice of pizza on each one.

"Isn't that the one with Colin Firth?"
"And Hugh Grant."
"And that really awkward chick?"
"Sure, go ahead," he smiled before taking a bite from his pizza.
"Yes! Thank you."

Bella settled on the channel and took a bite of her own pizza moaning slightly as she did. This really is amazing pizza she thought as she took another bite.

"Mmm, this is really good!" Scott told her.

"I would say thank you but it was hardly my doing," she joked. He chuckled before asking, "What place did you order from?"

"You know the one just up the road, past the roundabout."

" How did you find that?" 

"Liam told me." Regretting mentioning it the second it left her mouth.

"Oh, you guys seem to be really getting along, "he said, watching her carefully.

"Don't worry Scott, I'm not gonna steal your boyfriend," she teased, lightly nudging him with her arm. "Ha ha," he laughed sarcastically, nudging her back.

Bella giggled lightly and continued eating her pizza. After a while she looked over at Scott, debating if now was a good time to tell him about the other night? She really didn't want him to get mad, after all  she should have told him sooner, but she wanted to leave it until they were alone so she could tell him face to face. He could obviously tell something was up as he caught her staring.

"What?" he asked.
"Nothing!" she replied quickly. Don't back out now! Just tell him and get it over with, after all it's not like she did anything wrong she told herself.

"Bella!" His voice full of concern. She sighed lightly. "Ok, look I have to tell you something."
"Ok." His eyes watching her warily.

"I wasn't sure if I should tell you or not because I know how you get with things like this!" she babbled on quickly.

"Bella! Tell me!" He put his plate down on the coffee table in front of them before turning to face her completely.

"Only if you promise to stay calm ok. And no getting angry." Pointing her finger at him.
"Ok. I promise."

"Ok," she sighed heavily. "Well you remember that night I went out with Sam and Santi?"
"Yeah," he nodded.

"Well, I left early and started walking to the bus stop."

"Alone?" he asked, giving her a look like he knew where this was going. "So then what happened?"

"Well, there was this guy." Bella noticed him immediately tense up as she mentioned this. "He kept on asking me for my number and grabbing holding of me."

"What! Who, what guy?" he asked. She knew this was a bad idea!

"I don't know I've never seen him before. He was older then me and so drunk," she told him.

"What else did he do?"

"Nothing, I got away and ran to the bus stop, but when I got there it had already left."

"You should have called me Bella!"

"I did call you, but your phone must have been off or something."

He bent his head down and sighed. "Uhh that's right, I turned it off. I'm sorry Bella."

"It's ok."

"No it's not, if something had happened to you..." he trailed off.

"But it didn't." she reassured him.

Scott suddenly gazed up at her in confusion. "So how did you get home?"

"Well after you didn't pick up I was freaking out and worried that the guy might have followed me so...I called Liam." She really hoped he wouldn't be mad at Liam, it wasn't his fault.

"You called Liam?" he asked, his face even more confused now.
"He came and got me."
"Why in the hell didn't he tell me!"

"Because I asked him not to. I wanted you to hear it from me." she said. "Please don't be mad at him, he was just being a good friend."

"I'm not mad, I'm just never turning my phone off again."

Bella chuckled lightly as he sat further back on the sofa. "Next time, just tell me these things ok."

"Ok," she nodded before grabbing them both another slice of pizza. Bella knew that she didn't need to say anymore, at least he knew now.



~~It was rare for Bella's mum to have any free time lately, not that she complained though, her mum always made it up to her in the end. So when she told Bella that she had a night off they both decided to eat out somewhere. Her dad had called earlier that day, saying he missed them both and couldn't wait to see them, he was still going to be gone for a while though but Bella was used to this, even as a kid he would travel all the time and be gone for weeks sometimes for months on end. Bella missed him so much when he wasn't around and sometimes wished he would spend more time at home, but of course she could never tell him that, she knew how much he loved his job.

"Mmm, I am definitely recommending this place to your dad," her mum said as she took another mouthful of Tortellini. Bella had ordered the Tortellini and her mum had ordered the lasagne so they could swap halfway through, a little tradition of theirs.

"I swear, American food tastes so much better then back home. But then again, nothing beats an English kebab or fish and chips!" Bella sighed, suddenly missing her home.

"I second that," her mum agreed, wiping her mouth with her napkin. "You finished?"
"Yeah I just need to go to the bathroom quickly."

Coming back from the bathroom, Bella wasn't paying attention and clumsily bumped into someone.


"Well, hello to you too," he stood smirking down at her.
"What are you doing here?"

"Haven't you noticed me following you?" he whispered, making her freeze instantly. "Bella, I was kidding!" he laughed.

"Right, funny," she chuckled lightly.

"Hey, there you are. I was wondering where you got to," her mum said, suddenly appearing at her side.

"Sorry mum."
"Oh, who's your friend?" she asked, looking towards Dean.

"Dean Holloway, mam," he said politely, holding his hand out.

"Oh well it's nice to meet you Dean," her mum replied, shaking his hand. "Are you both in the same class?"

"No, but we do go to the same school," Bella told her.

She could see Dean smiling down at her from the corner of her eye, trying her best to ignore him.
"Ok, well are you ready to go?" her mum asked her.

"You know there's actually a party going on a few blocks from here," Dean quickly mentioned. "I was just picking up some pizza's to take over there, if you wanna join?"

Bella gazed up at Dean carefully, knowing the minute her mums back was turned he would turn straight back into the person he was as school. That thought scared her a little, she knew too well that if he wanted to kiss her this time he would and she wasn't so sure if she had it in her to stop him if he tried.

"Well I..." Bella looked over towards her mum hoping she would bail her out and say no.

"What kind of party?" her mum asked.

"Oh it's very low key, I promise," he said sincerely, flashing that charming smile of his.
"Honey, would you like to go?" her mum asked, turning to face her.

Bella really didn't want to go, all she wanted to do was go home and change into her joggings and watch her favourite show Gossip Girls, while lounging in front of the fireplace. For some reason she felt a tad bit embarrassed saying no.

"I'm really not dressed for a party," she muttered, looking down at her jeans and her long white sleeved top. She felt Dean eye the length of her body making her feel slightly uncomfortable.

"You look fine as you are," he stated, quickly winking at her before her mother turned to look at him. "Everybody else is casual so you have nothing to worry about."

"You should go," her mum prodded her. "Just be home by twelve the latest ok."
"Ok." Thanks mum!
"Alright, I'll see you later, call me if you need me to pick you up ok."
"Don't worry, I'll make sure she gets home." Dean told her, sending her one of his best smiles.

"Call me!" she eyed Bella seriously before giving Dean one last glance before leaving. Ha she thought, not as charming as he thinks he is after all. She knew her mum wouldn't fall for that, after everything that has happened with her sister, her parents weren't as trusting as they used to be when it came to boys. In fact she was surprised she let her go at all!

As soon as her mum was out of eye shot Bella turned around to face Dean and found him smirking at her. Why did he have to be so cute?

"See I told you," he said, crossing his arms over his chest.
"You told me what?"
"That I was good at other things."
"You mean sucking up to my mum just so I can go to a party with you?" she said, raising one of her eyebrows. He simply stood there, his smirk growing wider when a thought quickly entered her mind.

"Wait! There is a party isn't there? You didn't just say all that just to take me somewhere and -"

"And have my way with you?" he cut her off. "Why Bella, I'm shocked that you would think that!" He placed his hand over his heart pretending to look hurt causing her to smile a little.

"Don't worry the party is true, the part about it being low key however...well that was a lie," he admitted, turning around to receive 4 boxes of pizza's stacked up on one another. "Besides, do you really think I would order all this for myself?" he grinned at her.

"If you're anything like my cousin then yes," she grinned.

Bella was a little surprised as they walked towards his car. It was a white Lexus sports car which seemed a little flashy for him, she didn't really think it was his type of car especially from the way he dressed. Then again, giving his reputation and attitude a second thought, it suddenly seemed the perfect match.

"This is your car?"

"You like it?" he asked, making his way towards the driver's side.

"Sure," she shrugged, he blinked at this and cocked his head. "Not impressed huh?"

"It takes more then a nice car to impress me," she stated, opening her side of the door.

"Is that right?" Raising his eyebrow slightly.

"Yeah, that's right," she said, getting in the car. It was true, cars really didn't impress her, so why was it that Liam's car did?

Dean handed her the pizza's as he sat next to her, warming her legs up immediately. He put the keys in the car but didn't start the engine, instead he turned to look at her.

"So, exactly what does impress you?" he asked.

"Now where's the fun in that?" she replied, looking directly into his eyes. "The whole point is to find out for yourself."

He cocked his head again, a huge smirk appearing on his face. "Is that an invitation?"

No! Was it? I guess it was a little otherwise she wouldn't have said it. "Maybe."

"Maybe?" he repeated.

"To an extent."

"And what extent is that?"

"I don't know? We'll see," Bella told him, staring straight ahead and avoiding his glance. She really didn't know! She knew she was flirting and knew she shouldn't be. She knew she shouldn't even be in his car! Everything about it felt wrong, so why was she fighting it?

Bella couldn't explain. She looked over at him to find him still staring at her. "You know the pizza's are gonna get cold." Chuckling away he finally turned his gaze away from her and started his engine.


Blaring music instantly filled their ears as they walked through the door. Bella looked around to find the place packed! This was definitely not low key she thought. As if he had read her mind, Dean smirked at her and took the pizza's from her, placing them on a table in front of them. He offered her a slice which she politely declined, she was still full from the meal she just ate. He took a piece while nodding to a few people that passed him.

"Bella!" She turned around at the sound of her name to find a very drunk Sam staggering towards her and hugging her in an instant. "You came!"

"Sam hi." Quickly catching her before she toppled over. "You ok?" she asked, slightly concerned over how much she had drank.

"Yes." Sam said rather loudly. Suddenly Santi was also at her side. "Hi Bella."
"Hi Santi."

"See, I told you she would come," Sam told Santi. "Sam's 'physic'," Santi told her, air quoting the word 'physic'.


"I am!"

"I believe you," she told her as Sam continued to stare at her.

"You're pretty," she said in an almost childish manner. Bella glanced over at Santi who signalled the drank to much sign causing Bella to giggle.

"Oh, let's go upstairs!" Sam blurted out.

"Don't you want some Pizza Sam?" Santi asked her, Bella took a guess and figured she had drunk on an empty stomach, well no wonder she was so out of it.

"No, I want to go upstairs! Bella come with." Dragging Bella by the arm as she made her way towards the stairs.

Bella allowed Sam to lead her upstairs with Santi close behind. She found that she was lead into a room at the end of the hall where a few kids were gathered, some of them were standing whereas others were sitting close together on the coach at the end of the room. She saw one guy write something down and place it into a baseball cap that a girl was holding before he sat next to another guy on the floor where a few of them were gathered.

"What's going on?" Bella asked Santi curiously.
"They're playing 10 minutes in heaven." Rolling her eyes playfully.
"I always thought it was 7?"
"It used to be, but apparently 7 minutes is just not enough time," she stated.

Bella looked over to see a couple coming out of the closet looking rather flustered. The guy had a big smirk on his face where the girl was giggling at her friends while trying to fix her top that was hiked up slightly at the back.

"My turn!" Sam suddenly announced making Bella jump a little. She watched as Sam reached into the hat pulling out a piece of paper.
"James, you're all mine," she said seductively, moving towards the guy that was now standing and yanking him by his shirt as she made her way inside the closet.

"Shouldn't we stop her?" Bella wondered as she asked Santi, but she simply informed her that this wasn't the first party that played this game and apparently it was Sam's specialty.

She couldn't help but be a little surprised at this, she knew Sam was a flirt but this was new. Then again Sam had drunk a lot and Bella was definitely not a stranger to alcohol. Not that she drank all the time or anything, but she had fully experienced the control it can have over you, the sudden confidence you gain is thrilling and enticing, of course then comes the hangover with a big dollop of  'yep, you really did do all that'  the next morning.

"Excuse me," Santi muttered as she answered her phone.
"Sure," she told her, watching as Santi left the room leaving Bella to stand by herself.

She was a little surprised that she hadn't come across Scott or Liam, considering the amount of people that were here from school and all. He would have told her if he was though, he was constantly inviting her out but most of the time she made believe that she had homework or was busy doing something else. Bella felt bad that he felt he had to invite her everywhere, if she was honest with herself, she felt a tad bit embarrassed at times.

Bella's thoughts were quickly interrupted as an arm suddenly wrapped around her shoulders bringing her face to face with Dean. She felt her stomach twist, instantly remembering the last time they were this close and all the thoughts that were going through her head.

"Here, you like beer right?" he asked, quickly gazing down at her lips before handing her a beer that was in his other hand.

"Uh yeah, thanks." Bella took the beer from him slowly, their gaze never fading. She took a big gulp trying not to gag as she swallowed. She hated beer! Like really hated it, but she didn't want to seem like Ms' Goody Two Shoes who says no to everything and never has any fun. After all it was just a beer.

"So, you in line?" Dean asked her, a big grin on his face.
"For what?" she asked, furrowing her brow in confusion.

He nodded his head towards the closet. Realizing what he meant now she suddenly took a step backwards coming out of his grasp and almost dropping her beer in the process.

"Oh, no! I'm friend she' there."
Dean chuckled at her uneasiness and took a sip of his own beer. "Who's your friend"
"You know Sam?"
He didn't bother answering her, instead he nodded his head and took another long sip of his beer.

"Are you guys playing?" asked the girl who was holding the baseball cap.
"No thanks," Bella replied shyly.
"Ok, Dean you're up next." she said, sending him a flirtatious smile. Bella glanced up at him quickly to see his reaction, but was surprised to find him staring at her instead.

"You afraid?" he asked, his gaze never leaving hers.
Of course she was afraid! Her whole body was screaming for her to run while she still had the chance! But as much as she wanted to bolt she didn't want to seem small and pathetic.

"No," she told him confidently.

Dean raised his eyebrow slightly and cocked his head, moving his face closer down to her ear before whispering, "Prove it!"

Bella chuckled nervously. "Are you serious?"
"Why not?" he shrugged his shoulders. "Come on, be a little daring!"

Bella turned away from him, unable to look at him anymore, feeling her stomach churn once again. She took another long sip of her beer while considering what Dean had said. She doesn't have to prove anything to him!                                                                                                                             

Another sip.

Who does he think he is!                                                                                                                        

Another sip.

She knew what he was doing, well if that's what he wants then fine she will show him she's not afraid!

Another sip.

Bella scanned a few of the guys around the room, studying each one carefully.                                

Another sip.

They weren't a bad looking group, if she had to be honest. Bella grinned to herself, he wanted daring, then she would give him daring.

She tilted her head back as she finished the last of her beer, she could feel Dean's eyes on her but she ignored him. She placed the now empty bottle on the table behind her, staggering a little in the process. Whoa! Head rush! Maybe drinking that so fast wasn't the best idea! Just then the closet door was opened revealing a staggering Sam and a very dishevelled yet happy guy exiting the closet.

"Seeing as it's my go and you haven't had a turn...," Dean grabbed hold of Bella's hand before continuing, "I guess it's you and me next."

Shock instantly came over her face, but before she could fully register what was going on she was being pulled towards the closet. What is he talking about? No, this wasn't the plan! Quick think of something! Think of....uhh can someone please stop the room from spinning!

Before she knew it, Bella was standing in the dimly lit closet just spaces away from Dean. She could feel his eyes roaming her body as he started moving closer towards her. The closer he came the further she moved away until her back came in contact with the wall. She saw him suck on his bottom lip just like he had done in the halls that day, it still had the same effect on her as it did then. She could see the eagerness in his eyes as he closed the distance between them. Her head was still spinning from downing her beer, it had definitely calmed her nerves but she was still scared as hell!

"Relax," he smirked down at her, placing his hands on her hips and moving them slowly up around her waist as he brought her closer to him. Her body was now pressed up against his and his lips were just inches away from hers. He was gently pushing his body against hers, feeling every muscle from his chest down to his...

"Maybe we shouldn't do this!" she blurted out nervously.

"Don't worry. After all it's just 10 minutes, I couldn't possible do what I really wanted to in that amount of time." Looking down at her body once more before settling his gaze on her lips.

Bella wasn't sure what to make of that comment? She couldn't ignore the fact that she should have slapped him for even suggesting it, but at the same time it had been a huge turn on! She knew the alcohol was having a huge affect on her, but for some reason she didn't care. Maybe this isn't as bad as she thought. She could do this right? Bella relaxed herself as he bent his head down coming closer and closer towards her lips until they finally came in contact with hers.

He kissed her slowly at first, teasing her bottom lip with his tongue, she could feel her head spinning as he continued, his teeth nibbling on her bottom lip making her gasp slightly. Bella impatiently wrapped her arms around him and crashed her lips onto his as they kissed each other hungrily. She moved her hands around to the back of his neck playing with his hair and moving herself closer against him. He suddenly pushed her up against the wall rather forcefully before closing the space between then completely. Moving his hands from her waist, he made his way under the material of the top she was wearing, going further and further until she moved his hands away, quickly becoming very nervous.

He gazed down at her before saying, "It's ok."

Bella could see the look of want on his face as he leaned in to kiss her again, feeling a little uneasy this time, but let him carry on. She kept her hands on his chest this time as he continued to tease her again with his tongue while bringing his hands lower and lower until he roughly grabbed hold of her from behind. Bella panicked and pushed him away as hard as she could.

"God, what is wrong with you!?" she yelled at him, astonished to find him standing there with a smile on his face! Does he think this is funny!? "What?" he asked, as if he had done nothing wrong.

Bella looked at him in awe. Fine, if that's how he wants to act, fine! She turned around to leave but he quickly pulled her back spinning her around, feeling a little lightheaded at the sudden action.

"Whoa whoa whoa, ok, alright, I'm sorry ok. I'll take it slow," he muttered, watching her closely. Bella could feel her head still spinning but managed to focus on his face. She knew that she should just walk away so why wasn't she?

"Hey." He touched her chin lightly, observing her face before smiling at her. She allowed him to cup her face, his thumb softly grazing her cheek. They both leaned in at the same time as they kissed each other once again. She didn't know what she was doing or why she was letting him. She just needed this. Maybe he was right, maybe he really could take the edge of things a little. Maybe he could help her forget for a little while....she needed this.

Dean slowly brought his arms around her waist as she wrapped her own around his neck. She could feel his tongue on her lips and knew he was waiting for her to allow him access so she did. She opened her mouth giving him full access to run his tongue over hers as he entered her mouth. They stayed like that for a minute more until he pulled away looking into her eyes, a small smile appearing on his face.

All of a sudden the door swung open and everybody started whistling and whooping as soon as they saw them close together. Dean took hold of her hand and lead her out of the closet, she could feel herself blushing immediately as everyone started whistling even more. She looked over at Dean who was being given another beer from one of the other guys, he caught her gaze and gave her a quick wink making her blush again. Bella smiled softly at him until she noticed Sam in the hallway. She was sitting on the floor against the balcony with her head down and Santi at her side. She made her way towards them and  knelt down in front of Sam.

"Hey, is she ok?" she asked, looking down at Sam with concern.

"Yeah, she's just really drunk! I would take her home but I came with someone else, plus her parents aren't home and I really don't wanna leave her by herself." Santi replied.

"Well she can always come home with me."

"Are you sure?"

"Yeah, I mean my dad's away so it's just me and my mum, I'm sure she won't mind." In fact she knew that her mum would insist on it.

"That's really nice of you Bella, thanks," she smiled gratefully.

"Don't mention it, I'm just gonna call my mum, would you mind bringing her downstairs?"

"Yeah sure, don't worry I'll stay with you guys until your mum gets here," she said, gathering Sam up off the floor.

"Thanks, I'll just be a second," she told her. Bella called her mum letting her know the situation and of course her mum was happy that she called and said her friend was more then welcome to stay.

Bella started making her way back to the staircase when she spotted Dean walking towards her.

"Hey, there you are, you leaving?" he asked, disappointment crossing his face.

"Uh yeah, Sam's crashing at mine tonight so I better get her safe and sound before she finds anymore vodka," she joked.

He chuckled, moving towards her. "Sure you can't stay a little longer? We could always up the timer," he said, raising his eyebrows quickly making her giggle slightly.

"Or if you really want we could find an empty room," he finished, winking at her suggestively. Just when she thought he was descent.

"And on that note!" she muttered, making her way down the stairs.
"Come on! I didn't mean it like that!"
"Sure, I gotta go," she told him.

"Until next time." Winking at her one last time. Bella smiled at him lightly, his eyes on her the entire time she walked down the stairs and out the door.
