Chapter 22

Maz's POV

I walked out of my room and smiled faintly at Nick, he just looked down and walked into his room. He obviously heard the guys talking about it. It hurts so much to see him like this. But he said it was nothing. He said we were just friends. He can't be mad at me. But I'm mad at myself. I said yes to Joe. I don't feel that way for Joe. He's a great guy and all but I don't know. I just don't see him in that way. But I'll see. I might feel something later on. I continue walking down the hallway and lie on the couch.

Nick's POV
I sit on my bed. Thinking. Fricken hell, I should have never said we were just friends. And since when does Joe like Maz? He hardly showed it. But if Maz actually did like me, she would have said no thanks. Wow, she actually does flirt with me a lot. Some friend she is.

Narrators POV
It was 7pm. The time went by pretty quickly. Maz had fixed dinner for the boys and herself. They sat and ate and at 8:30pm they all sat down on the couch and watched some TV. Nick was upset that Joe and Maz were going to go out on a date together. And Maz was unsure if she should stay with or leave Joe. Joe was happy to be going out on the date, and Kevin, well, his mind wasn't on the situation. his mind was on that girl, Sarah, who he met briefly at Wal-Mart.

Maz's POV
I started getting bored. Watching Phineas and Ferb isn't the greatest thing for teenagers over the age of 15 to watch.

Maz:Hey, I'm going to get some ice cream from the milk bar down the road.You guys want any?
Kevin: Yeah sure. Just get me a chocolate one.
Joe: Can you get me a Rocky road?
Nick: Uhh, anything for me.
Kevin:Just drive Maz down so she won't have to walk to long in this heat. By the time she gets here with them they would have melted in this weather.
Nick:Uh, ok.

Kevin throws Nick his keys. Joe picks up the remote and starts flipping through the channels.
Nick and I left the guys and walked out into the car. We sat and buckled ourselves in and drove of down the road. We were silent. Both knowing what was going on. I wanted to say something but my mind wouldn't let me. Then he broke the silence.

Nick: So, Uh, I hear you're going out on a date with Joe this S.unday.
Maz:Uh yeah. Nothing exciting, just the movies.
Nick:Oh, thats nice.

That's the only conversation we had. We got to the milk bar and walked in. I got all the ice creams, paid for them and walked back to the car. Nick was just sitting there waiting for me. I couldn't do this to him. But why does he look so upset if he said we were just friends? I think I'll just call of the date with Joe. That's what i have to do. I sat back in the car.

Maz: Hey, we can go now.
Nick: Oh, awesome.

We drove back home. I opened the door and tossed the guys their ice creams.

Maz:Hey Joe, can I talk to you for a moment?
Joe: Yeah sure.

We walked off into the kitchen and sat down.

Maz:Uh, Joe. I just uh wanted to ask, can we call off the date? It's not that I don't like you or anything, your an amazing guy, it's just I don't see you in that way. And I'm so sorry.
Joe:Hey, it's fine. I feel the same way. I was just seeing if we would work out. Don't worry about it.
Maz:Really? I just hope you know, you don't feel bad.
Joe:Nah, it's fine.
Maz:*stands up and gives Joe a hug* Thanks for understanding.
Joe: It's ok. *smiles*

We walk back into the lounge. I noticed that Nick was missing.

Maz:Kevin, where's Nick?
Kevin: He said he was going for a drive. He just walked out.

I bolted out the door and jumped into his car just in time. I think I scared him a little. He just went with it and drove off. We didn't talk for a while. After about an hour of driving I broke the silence.

Maz:Are you ok?
Nick:I'm just fine.
Maz: Ok.
Nick: Actually I'm not ok. *stops the car on the side* You're going out on a date with Joe, I told you we're just friends, when I actually really like you, and you were just flirting with me the whole time and....

I just grabbed him, pulled him closer and kissed him passionately. We unclicked our seat belts and moved closer. He wrapped his arms round my waist.
His car had this really cool feature how you can put the front seats down to sorta make a bed. I clicked the button and the seats flung backwards. It was easier to get closer to each other. We pulled each other even closer and just sat there kissing. It was the most amazing moment of my life. No doubt about that. after about 5 minutes we pulled out and looked at each other.

Nick:what about Joe?
Maz:I called it off. We didn't feel the way we should have if we were going to go out on a date.
Nick:Oh, ok.
Maz:I'm so sorry for amking you feel like this.
Nick:No, it's my fault. I was the one that said we should be just friends.
Maz:*Hugs Nick* I know I've only been here for about a week and a half but I seriously feel so connected to you in an unbelievably magical way. I just hoped you felt the same.
Nick:And I do. I really do.
Maz:I know.

I kissed him on the lips again. This was by far the best night ever.
