-- CHAPTER FIFTEEN --


**********(Lindsay's point of view)**********

Class wasn't too exciting, the guy just discused what goes on during the play and all that.

I talked w/ Scott during some pointless lecture the teacher gave. He thought it was cool that Zac was my boyfriend since thetwo were pretty tight friends.

Anyway, class finally ended and I headed out the door, planning what I was going to wear to the date. Now would be a good time to wear thatdress I secretly bought when Zac wasn't looking. I wanted it to be asuprise for him, I thought I looked pretty good in it. It was a long,sleeveless dress that had pale purple flower decorated nylon layer overthe dark purple fabric. It was really pretty, not to mention the onlydress I owned at the moment. I'm not too big on dresses personaly.

I was about to walk to walk back to the dorm when I heard Zac's voice call, "Hey Lindsay! Over here!"I looked over and saw Zac waiting for me by the bike racks. He walked over, didn't ride his bike. I smiled and walked over to my boyfriend.

We greeted with a kiss and hug, then said the typical hi how ya doin yadayada yada.

"I made dinner reservations for 8:30, is that okay?" he explained. Itís 7:30 right now.

"Yeah, that's cool,"I returned.

"Sweet," he replied.

Zac and I walked back to the dorm, hand in hand, discussing drama class.

Zac encouraged me to audition for Mariyan amd all the ohter leading rolesin following plays. That was one of his features I like most. He made mefeel worthwhile, important, beautiful. No one outside my family has donethat to me.

Anyway, he walked me to my door and we kissed goodbye and went oursepreate ways to get ready for dinner. I was suprised to see my door unlocked.

I turned the knob and walked in, only to find Tahsa and Taylor standing in the middle of the room, kissing. I smiled and saw that Milo was eatingfrom his bowel. I was glad that they had some sense and fed him.I closed the door, neither of them moved.

"Ahem," I cleared my throat meaningly.They broke apart and looked up me. I had a smirk painted on my face and my arms were crossed.

"Oh, hi there telepath girl," they chourused.

"Greetings Earthlings. Taylor, you need to get your boney bootie outtahere coz I gotta get ready for a date," I informed.

"Oooooooooooooooh! Hote date with Zaccy, owe!" he teased.I rolled my eyes and sanpped,

"Alright Mr. Immature, will you just getoutta here? I don't exactly want to change with a male in the same room!"

"Okay, okay. Bye Tahsa," Taylor returned, smiling. I swear, I could have strangled that boy. I knew he was thinking, 'oh, it'd be a differentstory if Zac was in here, now wouldn't it?'

"Buh bye Taybear," Tahsa replied in baby talk to her man. (HA HAREVENGE!)They Frenched (oh yeah, revenge is sooo sweet!) and then Taylor finally got moving. But before he was completely out the door, I forcefully kicked him in his worthless ass. He turned around and flashed me an evilgrin and then shut the door behind him. I growled then turned to walk tothe closet.

"Temper temper Lindsay," Tahsa rubbed in, smiling.I narrowed my eyes at her and she just gave me a look of innocence. Is hook my head at her and rolled my eyes.

Since I had taken a shower this morning, I wasn't going to waste my time taking another one now. As Istripped down to my underware and slipped on my hose, Tahsa put in All Saints and started to blast Lady Marmalade. We smiled at each other as we sang along together.

"Hey sistah go sistah go sistah go sistah, Hey sistah go sistah go sistahgo sistah," the tow of us harmonized.

After I had my hose on, I slipped into my long, purple dress and put onmy platforms. I grabbed my brush and ran through my hair, walking intothe bathroom to put on my makeup and PearBeary body spray. I put my hairhalway up, tying the up part into a bun and securing it with a matchingscrunchi. I put a breath mint in my mouth and walked out of the bathroom.

Tahsa was sitting on her bed, reading an issue of Teen Pepole. Some blondditz actress was on the cover and I restrained myself from barfing. "Hey Tash, how do I look?" I asked.She looked up and gave me the look over.

Tasha smiled and said while giving a thumbs up, "Groovy," "Really? You're not just saying that?" I made sure.

"Lindsay, trust me, you look awesome. Be happy," she spoke.

"Okay, thanks," I replied.

"No prob," she returned, looking back down at her magizine.

I walked over to the stereo and put in The Miseducation Of Lauren Hilland blasted Everything Is Everything. I sang along to the song and Tahsatapped her foot to the beat and she read After a few minuted, there wasa knock on the door. Tahsa dropped her magazine and jumped to answer it.

"I'll get it, you sit tight!" she called. I grabbed her hairbrush,preparing to throw it at her at any given moment.

"Oh, Hi Zac, what are you doing here? I wasn't expecting you," Tahsa greeted the halfway opened door.

"Is Lindsay ready yet?" I heard him ask. Oh, that voice was like like a heavenly angel singing sweetly...

"Zac, I'm really sorry, but Lindsay has been abducted by aliens. You see,she was getting ready when the window opened and then came this lazer beam and-"Before she could finish, I threw the brush halfway across the room and it hit right smack dab in the butt. She jumped up, shocked and in pain, and yelped a loud, "OUCH!" "Alright, alright already!" she yelled, her head turned to me. Yes! Two hits in one day, hehehehehe."Yeah, your little love goddess is all ready, have a nice day." she told Zac flatly.

I walked over to the door as Tahsa opened it completely. Dang, Zac looked sexy.

I noticed when he saw me that it took his breath away. I blushed.

"Wow," he complimented. "You look beautiful!"

"Thank you, you don't look too bad yourself," I returned, smiling.

"Thanks babe. Ready to go?" he asked.

"Yep," I answered, stepping out the door.We held hands and walked of down the hall.

"Bye Tahsa!" I called.

"Bye Lindsay," she called back.

Zac and I walked out to the parking lot and drove to the resteruant in his car.

**********(Zac's point of view)**********

"Sooo...the aliens decided to return you?" I decided to at least start aconversation as we waited for the waiter to find us a table.

"Yeah. I demanded it so that I could come ont his date with you." She returned.

"Why thank you!" I responded, kissing her cheek in mock gratitude.

She laughed before listening to the over-head radio thing that they played throughout the radio.She tapped her foot lightly to the beat and hummed along. It was an old Billy Joel hit.

Soon the waiter returned and led us to our table.I took Lindsay's hand and held it as the waiter led us to the far back.We sat down at a table for two and I kept Lindsay's hand in mine as we looked over the menu.

She looked up at me and smiled, the candlelight glowing in her eyes. I squeezed her hand gently before continuing to look at the menu.I finally decided on fettuccinni alfredo. Lindsay picked the same.

As we waited on the slow ass waiters and chefs to get our food to the table, we made small chat. Lindsay beamed at her proud accomplishment of beaning somebody with something twice that day. I think it was Tasha both times.

I laughed as she talked animatedly with her hands. We laughed and smiled and joked throughout the dinner. It went by rather quickly and happily.

I think that it was during that dinner that I realised that I loved her. Totally and completely with no exceptions. Everything about her. The way she laughed, the way she kissed, even the way she beaned people in the ass with hairbrushes.

I loved her.

And I was gonna spend the rest of my life with her. I knew that much.

**********(Tasha's point of view)**********

I looked at my hairbrush lying on the floor from where Lindsay had insisted on hitting my ass with it.

I picked it up and put it back on the bathroom sink bar thingy. Then I made sure that my key was in my backpocket before walking over to Taylor's.

I knocked on the door and upon hearing "Come in" I opened it and stepped inside.

It was totally and completely dark.

"Uh...Tay? I can't see." I informed him.

"Here." He came towards me and took my hand leading me through the room as my eyes became slowly adjusted.

He led me towards the bed and I sat down on it, looking around.

"Taylor, why are you sitting here in the dark by yourself?" I asked.

"Cuz I knew that you would come over soon after Lindsay and Lover boy left." He responded.

"Okay. That still doesn't explain the lack of lights or music or anything." I raised my eyebrows but then noticed that he couldn't see me so I lowered them again.

"Well..." he paused and picked up what looked like a remote.

Sure enough it was. He turned on the CD player and I listened as Boyz II Men came out of the speakers. Specifically the mushy songs.

Soon I could feel him kissing the back of my neck. I sighed in content and could feel as he worked his soft warm lips up towards my own.

I kissed him back, enjoying the pleasure of the moment. Icould feel his hands on my waist, and then he softly pulled me down on top of him. He started to raise the bottom of my shirt before I stopped him.

"Taylor? What do you think you are doing?" I asked, trying not to sound rude.

"Nothing. Just...I dunno." He explained.

"Well, I don't wanna go any farther than kissing. Okay?" I asked.

"Okay." He sounded kinda dissapointed.

I leaned forward and kissed him again, this time deepening the kiss. Soon I was on my back and he was on me. And once again, he was messing with the bottom of my shirt.

"Taylor..."I warned.

"I know. I know." He shrugged it off.

I sat up.

"No. I don't think you do know. You need to respect my decisions." I scooted away from him a bit just to stress my point.

"Tash, why do you always have to get like this?" He asked, crossing his arms.

"Get like what?"

"Well, just kinda distant and controlling."

"Taylor, just because I won't let you do THAT does not mean I am distant and controlling. I have respect for myself." I argued.

"I have respect for you too." he responded, placing his hand over mine.

"Then respect my decisions." I returned.

He sighed and nodded before looking out the window. I leaned my head against his shoulder and he slowly ran his hands through my hair before pulling me into his lap and rocking me to sleep.
