I was standing on the sidelines staring at Jax, the guy I've had a crush on since sixth grade.

<--- Jax

He was staring right back at me, smiling. We seem to do this a lot, but we never talk. My best friend was now laughing at me, causing me to look away from him. "What?"

"Alex, I've been yelling your name for the past two minutes. They need you on the court." Jessy patted me on the back.

I felt my eyes widen, I hated sports, especially basket ball. "Do I have to, I'll just make us loose points."

Jessy pushed me onto the court, still laughing. 

Now being pushed towards the spot I was supposed to stand by Cellia.

I started playing with my choker when the time started. The ball came towards me and I grabbed it, immediately passing it to Tonia. I walked up and down the court, staying out of the way, as the others ran. I always try to stay out of the way since I'm the third smallest person in the whole school. I'm five foot, while the tallest person is six foot. The game finally ended and it was now time to go to our classes, since we were starting the second semester today I had no idea where my next class was. I entered the girls locker room being slapped in the but. I turned around to see Davina behind me with a stupid look on her face.

"I seen you staring at him." Davina nudged me forward so she could get in. "He was staring at you the same way."

I shrugged, turning back around, walking to my locker and getting my regular clothes.

Ignoring my friend I changed into my clothes, grabbed my stuff, and walked out the door only to run into someone. "Oh I'm sorry." I looked up to see the last person I wanted to see...... Jax.

"It's fine, I wasn't paying attention." He messed up my hair then walked off laughing.

I could already tell that my face was a bright pink color. I started walking down the hallway deep in thought. Does he like me? He can't, I'm the ugliest girl in school.

<--- Alex (me, myself, and I)

<--- Jessy

<--- Davina

-after school-

School was now over and I was walking to my house. Well, it's not really my house, it's Eugenia's. I live with her since my parents kicked me out when I was 13. I started listening to what they call devil music (anything with screaming in it) and dressing in darker colors, which apparently to them is a one way ticket to hell. So now I'm living with my best friend/ favorite youtuber, Eugenia Cooney.

Our house came into view and I started running. When I reached the front door I was out of breath. I opened the door and walked into the kitchen and sat my stuff on the counter.

Eugenia walked in and sat on the bar stool. "How was school?"

<--- Eugenia

I looked at Eugenia in shock. "Are you really asking me that? I literally ran into my crush and he messed up my hair. School KILLED ME. What you're seeing right now is a ghost." I sat down on the bar stool next to Eugenia.

Eugenia laughed, "I have some news for you".

I gave her a questioning look.

"Talia's coming over for the weekend, you two are going be in my video this weekend."

I felt a rush of excitement run over me. I imeadiatley hugged Eugenia and ran to my room screaming with excitement. Talia was my best friend that moved away in seventh grade. I talked to her a lot, over messenger. She is the ONLY person I talk to on messenger. I jumped onto my bed and screamed of excitement into my pillow.

I then heard a knock on my door, "Alex, are you okay", I heard Eugenia say in a chuckle.

I lifted my head up. "I'm fine, just a little excited."

This caused Eugenia to laugh,"well, she'll be here in about ten to fifteen minutes. Tomorrow I'm going take you guys to a New Year's Day concert."

Hearing this caused me to squeal. 

I heard Eugenia's laughter growing distant so I got up and cleaned my room up. After that I ran down stairs with my favorite movie, Suicide Squad, three pillows, and a large blanket. I sat the stuff down in the living room, where Eugenia was live on younow.

<--- blanket

I then ran into the kitchen and grabbed a bag of Doritos, which was my favorite snack, and a jar of bananna peppers, Talia's favorite snack. I ran back into the living room and set everything up. 

Eugenia motioned for me to come over to the camera. 

I walked over to the couch and sat down with her.

"Say hi, Alex." Eugenia nudged me in the side.

I looked into the camera and waved.

Doing this caused her to flick me in the head. "Actually say something."

I opened my mouth not knowing what to say. I was about to speak when I heard the door bell ring, which caused me to shoot up and run to the front door. I opened the door to see Talia stand there with a small bag. She looked completely different, she actually looked emo.

<--- Talia

Which I guess I looked different to. In seventh grade I had brown hair and actually cared about what I wore to school. But now I just don't care.

Talia dropped her bag and hugged me. She pulled away and picked up her bag. "I didn't bring any clothes, so I'll have to barrow your's."

I nodded and let her in. "Follow me and I'll give you some pj's."

She nodded.

I ran upstairs, to my room, and started digging in my drawers. Finally finding something for us both to wear, I turned around to see Talia messing with my makeup. I walked over to her and handed her the pj's and house shoes. "The bathroom's down the hallway, meet me back here when you're finished. Don't forget your makeup", I said the last part while pulling a makeup remover cloth from the pack. I handed it to her and she walked out of the room.

I closed the door and grabbed another cloth and whipped my makeup off. I threw the cloth in the trash, stripped from the clothes I was wearing, and changed into my one piece. I then slipped on the slippers and opened the door.

Talia was standing there playing with the fabric on the pj's I lended her. She looked up at me, "what are the plans for tonight"?

I smiled at curiosity. "We're going watch a movie with Eugenia." I walked down the hallway and into the living room. 

Eugenia was already laying on the heart pillow.

When Talia walked in the living room and seen the pillows she freaked. "I call the Andy pillow!" She ran over and face planted into the Andy pillow.

Eugenia and I laughed at her. I popped in the movie Suicide Squad and layed down on the 'I DONT HATE YOU' pillow. I made it half way through the movie before I fell asleep.

-the next morning-

I woke and my head was on Talia's stomach. As soon as I realized that I quickly raised up. That was the most akward position ever. I looked around the room noticing that Eugenia wasn't here. Then a smell struck my nose, the smell of bacon and syrup. I got up and walked into the kitchen.

Eugenia was setting plates of bacon and pancakes on the bar. "Morning, wake up your friend, breakfast is ready."

I nodded and ran into the living room and shook Talia. She didn't wake up so I ran into the kitchen and got a glass of ice and water. a ran back into the living room and threw the water and ice on Talia.

Doing this caused her to raise up. "BITCH, WHY DID YOU DO THAT!"

I laughed at her then pulled her up and dragged her into the kitchen. "Sit down and eat."

Eugenia looked at Talia, "what happened. You look like you went swimming."

Talia sat down on the bar stool and pointed at me. She then started eating her food.

Eugenia laughed and sat down next to her.

I sat down on the other side of Talia. 

-after food-

After we finished eating I gave Talia some clothes and told her to take a shower. I got some clothes of my own and went to the second bathroom. I closed and locked the bathroom door and layed the clothes on the sink. I turned on the shower and stripped from my pj's. Checking the water temperature I hopped in and let the water run over me. I shampooed my hair then sat down letting the water fall over me. I stood back up, conditioned my hair, and washed my body. I made sure the conditioner was out of my hair then turned off the shower. I reached out and grabbed the towel that was hanging off the bar next to the shower. I wrapped the fluffy black towel around my small body and stepped out of the shower. I dried off and put my new clothes on and brushed my hair out. I then dried my hair and brushed it again. I straightened it and fixed my bangs with hair spray. Once I was finished with my hair I done my makeup and put on my accecories. I opened the bathroom door letting the trapped stem out. I walked into the living room to find Talia talking to Kiara. 

<--- Kiara

They both looked at me with then went back to their conversation.

I sat down on the couch next to Kiara and sighed. "When did you get here?"

She looked back over at me. "About thirty minutes ago. You take long showers."

I just shrugged it off, I already knew I take long showers.

"So, do you guys want to go skating? Maybe go shopping afterwards?" Tali was now looking at me.

I shook my head. "Talia and I are going to a New Year's Day concert tonight and Eugenia has a video that we're going be in before that."

Talia squealed when she heard me say New Year's Day concert and Kiara's mouth just fell open. Kiara closed her mouth and playfully punched me in the arm. "Tomorrow then?"

I nodded, "Hot Topic. I need some new band merch. For skating we have to show Talia my favorite place."

Kiara's eyes widened at my words. "Don't you dare say it."

I nodded, "oh yea, we're going to Blaze."

Kiara sighed and fell back into the couch.

Talia gasped, "I've heard of that place........." Her facial expression changed to confused. "Didn't they close that place down."

I nodded, "yea, but our friend Davina opened it back up."

"WELP, I'll see you freaks tomorrow at eight in the morning", Kiara interrupted, getting up and walking out the door. 

At the moment the door closed Eugenia walked in waving three tickets in the air. She then picked up a shooting camera and tossed it to me. "You do the shooting wile we're in the car. Now get in the car, it's a two hour drive to the venue. The video is a vlog, and just letting you know that I've got two backstage passes for you two."

Hearing this made me jump up, grab my bag, and run out the door. I took the front seat, Eugenia took the driver's seat, and Talia took the back.

Eugenia started the car and drove off.

I turned on the camera and started shooting Talia and Eugenia, while Eugenia talked.

Talia and I took turns with the camera for about thirty minutes then Eugenia said the video was finished.

-at the venue-

After two hours of listening to Ghost Town and Falling in Revere, taking naps, and talking about anything and everything, we were finally at the venue. We made it there just in time for the actual show to start, luckily Eugenia pre-ordered the tickets so we got to sit in the front row. We took our seats as soon as Ash Costello started to introduce the band.

After the introduction the band started playing and she started singing,

They played Kill or be Killed and Suffer, then it started getting hot in there. I took off my hoodie and I seen him. My crush was sitting just a few seats away from me and I was about to die. I turned my attention back to Ash but I kept glancing over at Jax. At one point we made eye contact and he waved at me. I looked around but I didn't see anyone else we knew so I waved back.

Doing this put a smile on his face and he raised up a backstage pass so I did the same. That's when I'm About to Break You started playing which caused me to look up at Ash.

My attention now completely on the concert.

-back stage after the show-

Talia and I had just made our way backstage and I could already hear Ash's voice. That's when I felt someone tap my shoulder. I turned around to see Jax standing there with his hands in his pockets. "Hey"

"Hey", Jax said rubbing the back of his neck. "You mind if I stick with you guys. My brother left the venue when he dropped me off."

"It's fine." I turned around and started walking towards the voices with Jax and Talia in tow. I reached a door and I could hear Ash's voice from behind it. I looked back at Talia who was getting anxious. 

"Knock stupid." Talia pushed my shoulder.

I looked back at the door and knocked on it lightly. No one answers so I knocked harder and I could here Ash say, " Nikki, get the door".

At her words the door opened revealing Nikki Misery. 

I showed him my backstage pass as did the other two which made Nikki smile. "Come on in." He stepped to the side letting us in.

Ash was now looking our direction with a smile on her face. "I seen you guys in the crowd and I just have to ask are you two a thing?" She now had a questioning look on her face and she was pointing at me and Jax.

Right as I was about to speak Jax said,"yes". I felt him put an arm around me and I started blushing like crazy.

This caused Ash to smile and Talia to giggle. "I want you guys to do something for my next performance then."

My eyes widened and I looked at Jax, who removed his arm from around my shoulder and was blushing madly.

I held back a laugh and turned my attention back to Ash.

She was laughing at our reaction, "well anyway, I want couples to come up on stage and do some stuff for us so bring some friends. Wait, important question, where are you guys from?"

"Stoneville, it's about two hours away." Talia answered stepping closer.

"Good, that's where our next performance is. So lets do something since your going help us. Sit down." Ash motioned towards the couch.

The rest of the band moved and Talia and Jax sat next to each other in between Nikki and Jeremy. The only other place open was in between Ash and Frankie so I took it. This caused Talia to stand up, walk over to me, yank me out of the seat, and push me down were she was sitting. She claimed my old seat.

I was now sitting next to Jax and Nikki, and blushing like mad. Jax was also blushing really bad. Jax leaned closer to me and started whispering in my ear, "I'm sorry that I got us in this mess. I wasn't thinking right when I said yes." He then moved away from me and I could feel myself blushing extremely bad.

I leaned closer to him and whispered in his ear, "it's fine, I just wasn't expecting it. You probably done it because Ash asked about it." I then pulled away and looked at every one else.

Everyone was staring at us smiling and Talia just looked annoyed, "just kiss already." I probably looked like a tomato now. Then everyone around us started saying in unison, "KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS!"

"Geeze people, we're not at a KISS concert." Saying this made everyone laugh. I looked at Jax who was looking at me thoughtfully. 

He then leaned closer to me and whispered, "You know I actually like you right." My eyes widened at his comment. "Why else would I be staring at you in ever single class we have together?" 

I've always wondered why he looked back. I looked down in embarrassment, why the hell did he like me. I'm to ugly for any one to like. 

Jax grabbed my chin and made me look him in the eye. Then he whispered, "do you liked me back?"

I tryed to say, Are you kidding me? YES, OF COURSE I LIKE YOU. But when I opened my mouth no words came out, so I just shut it back.

Jax smiled at my reaction the pressed his lips against mine. I heard cheering from the people surrounding us which made me blush. The only other thing I could hear was the sound of my heart beat. 

Jax pulled away and I opened my eyes. "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?"

-the next morning-

When hanging out with the members of New Years Day lots of things happened.I had become Jax's girlfriend, and not pretending this time. I had invited Ash and the boys to hangout with us at Blaze. After hanging out with them I fell asleep on Jax in the car. We had to give him a ride because after five hours his brother still hadn't came back for him.

I rolled over onto my side and looked at the alarm clock, which read 7:30. Then I climbed out of bed, grabbed some clothes, and travled down the hall to the bathroom. After taking a shower and getting dressed I travled back to my room. I sat down at the vanity and done my makeup and hair. Then I heard the door bell, I looked at the clock again, which read 7:45. Next I heard footsteps traveling up the stairs and Talia and Kiara entered.

Talia was wearing a pure white dress, definitely not skating material. Immediately I stood up, finished with my makeup, walked over to my dresser and pulled out an outfit for Kiara. I walked back over to her and handed it to her.

She must have gotten the Idea because she walked out the door. Talia had already gotten dressed so I made her sit on the stool in front of the vanity. I done her makeup and Kiara came back as soon as I finished. Then I made Kiara and Talia switch places and I done Kiara's makeup. Then I grabbed three skateboards off the wall and handed one to each. Now we were all definitely ready.

We all headed down stairs, I grabbed an apple, then we left. We all got in Kiara's black convertible, and it took about five minutes before we reached Blaze. I got out of the car to see Jessy, Cora, and Hannah talking in the parking lot.

<--- Cora

<---Hannah

I walked over to them, "what's going on?"

Hannah grabbed my shoulders and started shaking me. "New Years Day is in the skating area. WITH SKATE BOARDS!"

Remembering the concert I smiled.

Cora noticed this and pushed Hannah away from me and squeezed my arms. "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU KNOW?"

I started laughing as Talia and Kiara came to my side. "I invited them. Have you guys even been in there yet?"

Cora let go of me and the three of them shook their heads. "You go first", Jessy said pushing me towards the gate.

I walked through the gate to see Devin talking to Ash, Violette sitting against the wall talking to Nikki, and Stella flirting with Jeremy, who seemed very annoyed.

<--- Violette

<--- Stella

Ash spotted me, smiled, and started making her way towards me, followed y Davina who had an excited look on her face.

Once she reached me I heard a series of excited squeals from behind me. "What's the plan for today?"

I smiled and said, "skating then shopping".

She smiled, set her skateboard on the ground, and skated over to the ramps, and I done the same. 

-2 hours later-

I had just finished fixing my makeup in the bathroom mirror and walked out of the restroom, only to be pushed against the wall and kissed.

Jax pulled away with a smile on his face. "Your so pretty, I just can't help myself."

I laughed at his comment and pushed him off of me. I started walking towards the open and Jax draped his arm over my shoulders. "I love you you anyway."

We continued walking and I replied, "I love you to."

-3 months later-

Jax and I are still a couple, no fights or anything bad. Ash and I are very close friends now, but they left the state a couple weeks after their show in Stoneville. The past three months have been filled with shopping, skating, girls day outs, and dates with Jax. Everything was so much easier to deal with, Eugenia even let Talia move in with us.

Jax and I was going on our eighth date tonight (yeah I know, eight dates in three months is a lot). This one was really special, it was my eighteenth birthday. I was in the bathroom looking over my outfit.

I received a text from Jax earlier today that read 'be ready by eight tonight, and wear something fancy'. I made Eugenia and Talia take me shopping and I picked out new jewelry, a dress, and heels.

I walked out of the bathroom and down the stairs to see Jax standing in the kitchen holding roses. When he seen me his mouth basically dropped to the floor. "Wow", he said in almost a whisper.

I felt the heat rise up to my cheeks and I smiled. I finished walking down the stairs and stood in front of him.

He smiled at me and handed me the roses.

Eugenia walked into the kitchen and took the roses from me. "I'll put theese in a vase, you guys go have fun."

Jax held his arm out for me to take and I did so. He walked me out to his car and opened the door for me.

I got in and he closed the door for me. I fascened the seat belt around me and watched as he got in the car. 

He fascened the seat belt around him and started driving.

It took about twenty minutes to reach our destination. We were at an Italian restaurant and their were only two other cars here, not counting Jax's car. I got out of the car, as did Jax, and said, "they look closed".

He smirked and we started walking towards the front door. "They are."

Confused, I looked at him and asked, "why are we here then"?

"I pulled a few strings." Once we reached the front door he opened it for me, and there was a trail of rose petals. "Follow them, I'll meet you there. I have to talk to the entertainment."

Doing as he said I walked along the path of the rose petals. They led to an outside part of the restaurant and there was a blanket laid out in front of a fountain. The blanket was being held down by candles on all four corners and their was a single rose in a vase in the center of it. I sat down on the blanket and took my shoes off. I looked down at my hands and thought, I wonder what he ment by entertainment.

Then I heard the beginning of Suffer start to play. I looked up to see a small stage and and New Years Day was set up and singing. Ash waved at me with a huge smile on her face.

Then I felt a tap on my shoulder. "Mind if stick with you?"

I looked behind me and smiled, remembering the day Jax and I got together. I nodded and kept my gaze on him as he walked around the blanket and sat down on it.

Jax leaned over and kissed my forehead then leaned back.

Then a waitress came in with a bottle of wine and pored it in our glasses. She then disappear through the door again.

I took a sip of the wine and noticed that Jax was staring at me with a smile on his face. I smiled back and set my wine down. "What?"

"You're really beautiful in the moonlight." Jax took a sip of his wine.

Then the waitress came back out with two plates of lasagna and sat one down in front of me and the other in front of Jax.

As soon as the waitress left I started eating, of course Jax was still staring at me. I could feel myself blushing, so I stopped and looked up at him. "EAT", I exclaimed and threw a napkin at him!

He chuckled and started eating.

-after the meal-

After finishing our meals Jax and I sat on the edge of the fountain and listened to New Years Day play their music. Ash sang her own version of happy birthday for me. I was so happy, nothing about this night could be any better.

I was looking down at my hands and when I looked up Jax was kneeling in front of me. Immediately I thought that he was proposing and my eyes went wide and my heart rate went sky high.

He pulled out a ring and said, "this is a promise ring not an engagement ring. But I want you to know that I love you no matter what happens. This ring symbolizes that." He slipped the ring onto my hand and planted his lips on mine. 

I kissed him back and I knew my life definitely couldn't get any better.
