Chase loved performing with his brother. Devon was a regular virtuoso, and had learned to play several different instruments - even the keyboard. It made their performances versatile and engaging.
And front row he could always find Sandra, cheering for him and supporting him.
"No, we're supposed to meet up here," Eva answered, "Why?"
Arturo took a deep breath.
Arturo held his breath, waiting for her answer.
Eva shot Artie a look of apology as Nick bounded up and pulled her into his arms. Eva cringed when he stole a quick kiss in front of Artie.
And he did feel alittle guilty. It'd been clear that Joan had wanted something more from him. After Farrah's dad had whisked her away, Joan and Jason spent the rest of the night getting cozy. He'd watched them flirt, strangely unmoved. It was then that he realized his relationship with Joan was over...
Unfortunately, Farrah's relationship had been doomed along with his...
This is going to be some dance, he thought with a heavy sigh. Across the room, Eva laughed with her group of friends and Nathaniel smiled, wishing he could be in that group...
Nathaniel waved the air in front of him, attempting to push the smoke away from him. "Knock it off," he snapped.
"Thanks for coming out with me," Farrah said, dropping the cigarette butt and grinding it out with the heel of her shoe. "There was something I wanted to talk to you about," she said, lowering her voice in a seductive manner.
Oh boy, Nathaniel thought. Exactly what he'd been afraid of...
She turned when she heard her name called. "Yes?" she asked, recognizing one of Farrah's friends.
Michelle giggled. "Farrah wanted to see you. She's out back."
Eva raised her eyebrow at the way Michelle was giggling and looking back at Jason and Joan. Of course Farrah's friends would be brainless. Something seemed off.. especially because she knew Farrah would never ask for her!
Might as well go see what was going on, though.
"What? I thought you liked me..." Farrah said, shocked.
"You're a nice girl.. but..." Nathaniel trailed off, unsure of what to say. He glanced over and saw Eva's retreating form.
Nathaniel glared, "You don't know what you're talking about!" he snapped. Everything about this night had been a complete disaster.
Nathaniel shook his head. "No! That's what I was trying to explain! I wasn't! Trying to kiss her!" he protested. "I wasn't!" he added, grabbing her hand when she tried to turn away from him.
They both stopped and looked down to where their hands were joined.
Nathaniel watched her go.
Hearing a gasp, she whirled around and stared drunkenly at the door, squinting to see who'd just come in.
