too far, I could just imagine the grin on his face. I hesitantly lowered myself down, scared
my fingers would slip, but within seconds I felt two strong arms around my waist, holding me up.
“You can let go,” he said.
I slowly let go and looked down to see Lane looking back up at me. I placed my hands on his
shoulders waiting for him to release me, but he didn't. He made it look so easy holding me up, I
wasn't that light.
“You can put me down now.”
He dropped me to the ground and I took a step back.
“Your top fucking stinks.”
I laughed. “Yeah, I know, blame Liam.”
“Follow me,”
“Where are we going?”
He didn't answer and walked off down the driveway. I followed him to the end of the driveway
where he was already waiting for me, sitting on a low wall. He tilted his head for me to follow him.
“I can't just leave Pip,”
“We're not going far.”
He walked up the neighbor's driveway and waited for me near the side of the house.
“What are you doing?” I asked in a hushed voice.
I looked around to see if anyone was watching, there was a couple making-out in a car, clearly not
paying attention to us.
“Just get over here,” Lane called.
I hurried along the side of the house, and he walked around to the back of the property.
“Lane I don't think we should be around here. What are you doing anyway?”
Lane turned his back on me and knelt down, picking up a garden gnome. Underneath was a key.
He stood back up and unlocked the door.
“Um, Lane...”
“Alex, it's cool, Lewis lives here and I'm staying over tonight.”
“Oh,” I mouthed. “I didn't know Lewis and Sean lived next door to each other.”
“And now you do,” he said, grabbing my hand and pulling me in through the back door. He flicked
on the lights and we walked into a neatly organized kitchen.
Lane looked down at my top, and I wasn't sure what ideas were going through his head.
“Look, Lane, whatever you're thinking it's not gonna happen. I'm not one of those girls.” I crossed
my arms.
“I already know that,” he said, walking through the kitchen and flicking on a few more lights.
“You coming?”
“Err... no,”
“Fine, have it your way, but don't go anywhere.”
“Why? What are you doing?”
“Do you always ask this many questions?” he asked, jogging up the stairs.
I stood awkwardly in the middle of Lewis's kitchen, wondering what Lane was doing upstairs. I
didn't have to wait long before Lane came thundering back down the stairs. He swung around the
banister and walked back into the kitchen, and chucked something at my face.
I caught it. “What's this?” I asked, inspecting it strangely.
“It's a T-shirt,” he smirked. “I don't think it's going to bite you. Now put it on.”
I frowned.
“Alex, your top is gross, and it wreaks, please change out of it.”
“Ooo..kay,” I noticed he was still watching me. “In here?”
“It's just us,” he said, smiling.
I didn't say anything and he rolled his eyes at me and turned around. “See, I'm not even looking.”
I carefully lifted my top over my head, trying not to touch my hair with it. I dropped it on the floor
and pulled on Lane's T-shirt. It even smelled of Lane, faintly smoky with a hint of clementine. Then
I wondered how I even knew what he smelled like. I think I may have stood next to him on the odd
occasion. I realized he was waiting for me to finish.
“Done,” I said.
“Looks good on you,” Lane said, admiring his T-shirt on me.
It wasn't something I thought Lane would have worn, a black T-shirt with the sleeves cut off with a
skeleton on the front, it was something I would have worn, though.
I picked my top up off the floor and figured it was beyond saving.
“Is there a trash can in here? I don't think I want to even attempt scrubbing Liam's puke out of it
again.”
Lane walked across the kitchen and opened a cupboard door which had a trash can attached to the
inside of the door. I dropped it in, a little sad to see it go, but it meant I now had
