Well, the CW had organized a party to celebrate the huge success of the second season of our show and everything was already in full swing, except me.
Suddenly two hands from behind covered my eyes. I touched the hands gently and tried to guess to whom those hands belonged to. ”Guess who”, a tender voice whispered in my ear. Actually, I already knew who it was but I didn’t want to spoil the game. “Hm.. Paul, is that you?” – “Nope” – “Steven?”, I went on teasing him. “Wrong”, he answered amused. “Well, then it has to be Matt!”, I called out. “Uh no.”. He started laughing and removed his hands, then I turned around. “Oh, hey Ian! What a surprise!”, I said in a fake and ironic way. “Hello, beautiful. Disappointed it’s only me?”. He said while hugging me tightly. “No, of course not..”. I always felt happy and safe around Ian. Having him as a company never disappointed. “But I wonder where’s Paul. Where is he? Didn’t you arrive with him here, Ian?”, I asked a little concerned. “No, he texted me that he would stay at home with Torrey because she’s not feeling good and he didn’t want to leave her. Don’t worry honey, I’m sure they’re fine.” Ian explained, trying to calm me. “Oh, that sucks.. I hope she’ll feel better soon. I’ll quickly text Paul to check if everything is okay.” I took out my mobile and started typing. I still was a bit worried but Paul wrote back that there is no problem and that I should just enjoy the party without worrying. “Paul told me..”, I began, soon realizing Ian kind of had disappeared without telling me. Well, nice. Just leave me on my own, I’m old enough to take care of myself, I thought to myself a bit snapped. I had already been a little bit moody today and now my mood had gotten even lower. However, Kat, Steven and Candice were rocking on the dancefloor. They looked over to me, waving and screaming that I should join them. Why not? I went over to them and started to move my hips and just let go of myself. At once, someone embraced me from behind. “Hey whirlwind, what are you thinking just to disappear like that?” - “Well Smoulder, who’s left whom first?”, I replied mischievously and gave him a playful look. “OK, point goes to you”, he admitted with wide grin on his face. I continued dancing and danced towards him. “Will you go with me next door on the balcony? There we are little more uninterrupted, whatcha say?”, he said a little insecure. “What are you going to do to me there?”, I asked while stroking over his chest, “Will you bite me and suck me out?”. I started giggling. “Of course not, honey. I just wanna show you something."
