A/N: And Now... The first part of the chapter y'all have been waiting for :D 

*Walks off stage, as audience starts clapping*

Chapter Eighteen ~The Ball part 1~ 

I placed one foot inside of the sleek black limo, and then slipped the other one inside. Inside the limo, everyone was already sitting down. There was Adriano, Enzo, Kat, Ana, and Kat Von D. Yes I repeat, Kat Von D! Apparently Ana had invited her, and that's why she was already in town. I guess they are working on something clothing together. 

I was the last to step into the limo, and I could feel everyone's eyes on me. I swear if I didn't have a mask covering my face, I would be as red as a tomato. Trust me, this never happens. The blushing I mean. It's just recently started when Adriano is around. Weird, I know. 

Oh yeah, the mask. 

It's beautiful. It's made out of black lace, and fits my face perfectly. There are a few gems tracing the outline of the lace, and some silver lave mixed in one one side. The eyes are shaped almost like a cats, and match my make up perfectly. All in all, I guess you could say it was perfect. For once in my life, I felt perfect. 

I sat down in the car, and looked up. I could Hadley tell the difference between Enzo and Adriano. They were both wearing a black suit, and a silver tie. However, Adriano had a tie that matched the color of my dress, and Enzo's matches the color of Kat's. Both boys had on a simple black mask. I could only tell them apart buy their hair. Enzo's hair was neatly spiked into perfection, but Adriano's was a different story. His hair was a tousled mess, looking like he just got out of bed. But it still looked perfect on him. He looks perfect. 

I met Adriano's eyes, and he held my gaze. Our eyes were glued to each other for what felt hours, before Adriano turned away. Not before giving me a smirk, of course. 

I looked around the Limo, and quickly notices how amazing beautiful all the girls looked. Ana had on a very simply Gown, a nude color. For her age, she could really pull off a dress like that. Kat had on a blood red dress, it was full length and strapless. Kat Von D kinda had her own thing going on, with a sleek black leather dress that stopped just below her knees, and a white mask going along with it. Everyone looks perfect. 

There's still a pit in my stomach. I'm still terrified of what's going to happen tonight. I know that nothing bad will happen, Adriano wont let it happen, but I'm still scared. What if it doesn't happen like it was planned? Well we actually don't have a plan. Just to kiss somewhere, where everyone will see us. Boring, I know, but it has to be done! 

Everyone starts a conversation, but I just look at the window. I could hear the voices of every one talking, and having fun, but I just couldn't pay attention. No matter how hard I wanted to, I couldn't move my eyes away from the window. The sun had now set, and the street lights were illuminated by the lights the hung above them. 

Eventually the car came to a stop, and the door was opened for me. I quickly got out, and looked up at the Victorian styled mansion in front of me. When Ana said she had something big planned, I didn't think she meant this big. This place is huge, and full of life too! The place was already starting to fill up with people, and the sound of music could be heard from outside. It reminded my of high school partied that used to happen in my neighborhood, except it was nothing like those parties. The music is nice, and so are the people. No one is making out on the stairs, and there's no alcohol being thrown all over the place. 

By now everyone was out of the car, and forming a small circle on the sidewalk. I noticed Adriano was standing rather close to me. 

"Okay everyone, go and have fun!" Ana starts her short yearly speech. "But please do not get drunk. If something bad were to happen to my babies- that means all of you- I would be devastated. So ninos, please stay away from the drinks with alcohol in them. Besides that, I want all of you to have fun!" She then turns to Kat Von D. "You can drink though dear, I know you are responsible enough." 

Kat Von D laughs, and starts to say something, but I'm not focused on that. I'm focused on how Adriano brushed by me, but not before brushing his hand against mine. Was he going inside already? What about the plan? 

"Emilie, are you okay?" 

I look up to see Enzo staring at me with a concerned face. 

I give him a quick nod. "Yeah... I'm just going to go inside now..." I trail off, before nodding to the others. 

As I'm making my way inside the building, I see Adriano leaning against a wall. He's staring at me, watching every move I make. When I reach him, a mischievous smile creeps onto his face. 

"Princess." He whispers, eyeing my up and down. "You look beautiful." 

I smile, and look down at my feet. This is what I meant when I said I started blushing a lot around Adriano. "Thank you." I whisper back. 

I look behind me, and see the rest of our group walking through the doors. They all seperate, and go their own ways. Except for Kat and Enzo, of course. Those two are now glued to each other's hip. 

Adriano leans down, and brushes his lips against my ear. "Dance with me." He demands, taking a hold of my hand. 

I don't even have time to answer, before he's dragging me to the middle of the dance floor. It's crowded with people dancing all around us. I'm about to protest dancing with Adriano, but the song that comes on makes me stop in my tracks. 

Carefree Highway by Gordon Lightfoot. 

"I love this song." I say, feeling my eyes tear up. I used to sing this song with my parents all the time. Back before they left. 

Adriano's hands wrap around my waist, and he pulls me closer. "Then let's dance." 

I tangled my fingers together behind his neck, and rest my head against his chest, just as the words to the song start playing. 


"Picking up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream

I wonder how the old folks are tonight

Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I recall her face

She left me not knowing what to do"

I pull away from Adriano's chest, just in time for him to spin me around. When I'm done twirling, he places his hands back around my waist and smiles at me. I return the smile, as we continue to dance a long to the song.

"Carefree highway, let me slip away on you

Carefree highway, you seen better days

The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes

Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you." 

I look behind Adriano, and notice Kat staring at me. The pit in my stomach becomes larger, and I know she's starting to catch on. Why else would I be dancing with Adriano? She thinks we both went back to hating each other. 

This is no good! 

"Turning back the pages to the times I love best

I wonder if she'll ever do the same

Now the thing that I call living is just being satisfied

With knowing I got no one left to blame." 

I notice now that other people are starting to stare at us. People dancing around us, are now throwing glances in our direction. Could they know it's us? Is it possible that they can tell it's us, even when we are covering our faces with masks? 

Of course they can. These people can recognise Adriano from miles, and miles away. 

"Carefree highway, got to see you my old flame

Carefree highway, you seen better days

The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes

Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you..." 

Adriano catches to worried look on my face, and he gives my waist a quick squeeze. "You will be fine, I promise. I'm right here." He whispers in my ear, before dipping me down.

"Searching through the fragments of my dream shattered sleep

I wonder if the years have closed her mind

I guess it must be wanderlust or trying to get free

From the good old faithful feeling we once knew." 

I look behind him once again, and notice how Enzo is now standing with Kat. They're are engaged in a deep conversation, and I wonder what they are talking about. But then I see Kat point at something. It takes me a while to realize she's pointing at me

Enzo follows her point, and his jaw drops a little when he sees us.

Oh, no.

"Carefree highway, let me slip away on you

Carefree highway, you seen better days

The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes

Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you

Let me slip away on you

Carefree highway, got to see you my old flame

Carefree highway, you seen better days

The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes

Carefree Highway, let me slip away, slip away on you."

One of Adriano's hands leaves my waist, and takes a hold of my chin. As the song stops, he tilts my face up so I'm staring up at him. He holds my gaze for a few seconds, before speaking. 

"Emilie." He breathes. 


"I'm going to kiss you." And before I can protest, he does. 

As soon as his lips are on mine, I can hear people letting out gasps from around us. Except, I didn't care. Not one bit, actually. Having Adriano kiss me, gave me this weird power. It was like he took away all my worries, and replaced them with happiness. I couldn't tell you how he does it, but he just does. 

When we break away, his eyes are closed but there's a huge smile on his face. "I've been waiting so long to do that." He says, and opens his eyes to look at me. 

"Thank you." I tell him.

He looks at me, looking rather puzzled. "For what?" 

"When you kiss me, it takes away all my worries." 

"So I'm guessing I should kiss you more often?" Once again, his smirk is very present on his face.

"I guess you should." 

He doesn't take another second to mold our lips back together. His kiss spread warmth throughout my whole body, and I feel my self smiling. The things this boy could make me feel, with just a kiss. 

"I knew it! I Knew it! I knew it!" I hear Kat's voice some where in the crowd. 

I pull away from Adriano, and focus on my best friend. She's standing a few feet away from me, with Enzo by her side. Both of them with huge grins on their face.

"I so knew it!" Kat says again. 

"Knew what?" Both myself and Adriano ask at the same time. 

"You guys are together, aren't you?" Enzo asks, the grin not leaving his face. 

From the corner of my eye, I see Adriano look down at me. He's got a huge grin on his face. "Yup!" He says, popping the P. 

Kat's face falters into a frown. "Why didn't you guys tell us?" 

"We didn't want anyone to know." I answer quickly. 

"Not until tonight, anyways." Adriano finishes. 

Enzo looks at Kat, and nudges her arm. He then bends down, and whispers something in her ear. Even though another song is now playing, I can still hear what he's saying. "Maybe we should announce our little Secret, like this. Huh?" 

Kat burst out laughing, and nudges Enzo back. "Oh totally." 

I zone out their conversation, and focus on the crowd around us. Some people are still staring, while others have gone back to dancing. I notice how there are a few Camera men standing around, waiting to take another picture of us kissing. Well I guess they're in luck, because I know this isn't the last time we would be kissing tonight. 

Then, I see something that makes me freeze up. 

It's a woman. 

She's wearing nothing but a pair of jeans, and a sweater. She's making her way closer to us, a frown on her face. As she gets closer, I notice who it is. 

Oh no no no no no!


This can't not happen! Not tonight! 

Does she not know what she's doing? 

Tracey has now reached our group, and she walks right up to Enzo. "Enzo baby, I've missed you." 



For those of you who do not remember Tracey, she's the girl that made Enzo fleet the country! The one who broke his heart, and left him heart broken for nearly a year. 


How was is? 

Let me tell you something; A lot of shit is about to go down.


You guys might hate me for some of the stuff that's about to happen.

Well won't hate will just....maybe be surprised....? 

It's nothing bad, just a lot of Drama. 

Until Next time, I leave you with this cliff hanger.

Haha bye guys.
