We made friends with Levi pretty easy - he's the new guy if you hadn't guessed. He's been hanging with us for a few weeks now.
He's nice and he's funny which is a bonus. He usually comes with us to band practice when he has nothing to do. Wait, did I just say him being funny was a bonus? I sound like one of those girls from my highschool that are describing a guy and just because he's funny he's automatically attractive.
And that stupid feeling in my stomach keeps coming back.
It's probably nothing, let's just ignore it for now.
"So how long have you and Jack been dating for then? Levi asked as we sat in Maths together.
I could feel my cheeks heating up. It was rare for someone to ask anything about mine and Jack's relationship. I remember my brother Thomas was the first person I told that I like Jack.
I miss him so much.
"Em we've been dating for a few months now." I smiled over at him.
He smiled back at me, showing off his perfectly straight and white teeth. "Well he's one lucky guy."
I gave him a confused look. Jack...was lucky to have me? I thought I was the lucky one.
Is he seeing the same Alex Gaskarth here?
That's the exact same question I asked Jack when we started dating.
I remember the day he asked me out like it was yesterday.
We were sitting in Jack's house, Rian and Zack were there too. I sat on the floor infront of the couch that Jack was curled up on, hugging a cushion. Zack sat crossed legged on the other couch with Rian who was
sitting on the edge of the couch. We were watching Home Alone 3, one of the movies in Jack's favourite movie series. It's the middle of autumn but it doesn't really matter what time of the year it was.
I think halfway through the movie was when Zack and Rian left, since Zack had to go home and check up on Haggis - the family cat - and Rian had to leave because Zack was his ride home. So it was now just me and Jack. I stayed seated on the floor, hugging the cushion, not taking my eyes off of the tv screen.
Even though me and Jack are best friends, I felt sort of awkward. I know the reason it was awkward: tonight was the night I decided I would tell Jack that I liked him. I have no idea how I was going to do it, but I think blurting it out was the easiest option.
"You're being awfully quiet. What's up?" Jack asked, pausing the movie.
I tilted my head back to look at him. "Nothing's wrong I'm fine."
Jack let out a sigh. "I know you Alex and there's something up with you. You're too quiet, quieter than Zack and that's saying something." He patted the seat next to him. "Come here."
I blinked before dropping the cushion on the floor and sitting next to him. There was an awkwatd silence before Jack wrapped his arm around my waist. "Why don't you tell Jack Bassam Barakat what's up."
I chuckled. Hearing his middle name always makes me smile. Bassam, it's such an unusual middle name.
I took in a deep breath. "I want to tell you something, but promise me that you won't freak out or laugh or something."
Jack smiled at me, his brown eyes lightened up. "I promise I won't do any of those things." He placed his hand on his heart like he was about to sing the national anthem.
I took in a deep breath, pulling down the sleeves of my hoodie. "I like you. A lot. I like you much more than a friend Jack. I have for a while but I've never had the courage to tell you and tonight is the night that I've finally been able to pluck up enough courage to tell you. I've always wanted to tell you but whenever I try to so many scenarios run through my mind that they always make me back down from telling you." I held my breath as I awaited his reply.
He gave me one of his biggest smiles that I've ever seen. "I was hoping you would say something like that." He pulled me closer to him, smashing his smiles into mine.
I guess this answers the question I've always had rushing through my mind for months.
We pulled away from each other. "Well Lexy, would you like to be my boyfriend?"
I looked up at him and nodded, before kissing him again.
And that's how we started going out. It's not very lovey dovey but who cares. I still can't believe it's only been a few months since we started dating. I don't think I ever want our relationship to end and I know if something came between us, I would fight back for Jack until the end...
