The days sped by really fast and Corey and I become closer than ever and now he was officially my boyfriend. Corey was always protecting me and keeping me safe from the drunkards that always visited Derux these days. But, I knew Nate didn't like Corey on the first day, because the first thing Nate did the next day was bombard me with questions.
"What happened to you at the party? Did you get drunk or something?" she questioned.
Nate had come over to my house and was pacing back and forth in my bedroom, as I stared at my ceiling, dazed.
"No, you know I'm not into that." I told her.
"Well, then tell me what happened and why you were just kissing some random stranger!"
"He wasn't a stranger! I told you, he's Ian's son."
"Oh really, what's his last name? How old is he? What's he like to do for fun?"
I sat up as I realized something. Now that I thought of it, I don't know. Ian never told me his last name or how old Corey is, or what he even does all day.
"You don't know, do you?" Nate continued.
"No. But, we're just friends now and I'll find out things about him later." I told her.
"Then I think you should wait before you kiss him or anything. You don't know guys, they take full advantage of girls. Been there, done that."
"Aw, Nate, you don't Corey. He's totally not like that all. And don't worry, I'll protect myself. Besides you remember what happened to the last guy who tried to touch this."
"How can I forget? He ended up in the hospital."
One time, there was this guy that tried to touch my butt and I kicked him in the nuts. I was wearing really really high heels, so he got really really hurt. For a second, I thought he died from all that pain, but he was groaning so, he lived.
"I don't think he's going to be much of a bother to girls anymore." I said.
"I don't think he's gonna even be able to get girls pregnant anymore." Nate added.
I laughed at that and embraced her in a tight hug. I love Nate, I really did, she was my best friend and I always looked out for her. I'd be lost without her and that's why we make such a great pair.
A Week Later:
Corey and I were at work on a Thursday night and I couldn't help being worried and upset.
"Hey guys, I'll be back in a few, try not to miss me too much!" I said to the huge crowd of teenagers on the dancefloor.
"Yeah, you guys better not, 'cause your favorite little DJ and I are going out to smooch!" Corey added loudly.
"What? It's true, isn't it?"
I heard some people laugh and others awed.
"He's kidding." I told them.
I took my headphones off and skipped down the stairs, onto the dancefloor, past the dancing teenagers and sat down on a red couch in the corner.
"What's the matter with you lately, babe? You don't sound as lovable anymore." Corey said, sitting down next to me.
"Nothing, it's just...a lot of the teens that come here are my neighbors and they think that my family is perfect. They don't know what kind of a boyfriend I have." I explained.
It wasn't a total lie, I mean that was sort of the case.
"Are you sure there's nothing else you wanna tell me?" Corey pressed.
I sighed, turning around to face him and took his hands.
"Nate, you remember her, don't you?" I started. "Well, she-she doesn't like you very much. She doesn't understand how much I like you or why I'm with you. She doesn't trust you and I've been trying to get her to see that you're different, but she just doesn't wanna listen. And I love you, but I love her too, she's my <i>best</i> friend and I don't want to have to choose between you two."
I wiped some of my tears, before they could spill.
"Hey, hey, don't worry, everything'll be fine." Corey assured, wrapping his arms around me.
"How can you be so sure?"
"That's just it, I'm not. But, I really hope it will be."
I hugged Corey tightly, then leaned forward and gave him a deep and passionate kiss.
"I love you and I'm glad you're mine." I told him.
"Ditto babe." he replied, kissing my forehead.
I found myself melting in Corey's eyes and I knew Corey did it on purpose.
"Alright, back to work."
I stood up and went upstairs with Corey at my heel. We continued to work and I felt a lot better than before.
The Next Day:
I was explaining to Nate once again that Corey isn't what she thinks he is. But, once again I was failing to make her understand.
"Juliett, I don't care what he says, I know he's lying!" she exclaimed.
"How?! How do you know?" I cried.
"I see him! He goes around hugging random girls and kissing their cheeks. He smokes and drinks. His whole personality screams bad boy!"
I was getting really made at Nate now, I just didn't get what her problem was. I didn't want to yell at her, so I just stormed out of her house and to Derux. I didn't have work today, but I just needed to clear my head.
"Hey babe, what are you doing here? Today's your day off, isn't it?" Corey said once he saw me.
"Yeah, but I was bored and I felt like dancing around a little." I told him.
I didn't want to tell Corey about my fight with Nate and get him all worried.
"Alright, I don't think dad'll mind if I take a little break."
Corey took my hand and pulled me out on to the dancefloor, we danced for a little while to the fast songs, then a slow song came on and Corey pulled me close to him. I rested my head on his shoulder and let the music take me in. Corey grabbed my chin, making me look at him. I smiled and he started kissing me. Soon his tongue had forced my mouth open, while it slipped in. I felt weird about that, I'm not so sure why though.
Corey's mouth tasted weird, usually his lips taste sweet like strawberries, but now they tasted like alcohol? Was he drunk or something? I tried to pull away from him, but he wouldn't let go of me. Then I felt his hand moving down my body and squeezing my leg. Ok, now I was confused. Corey never acted this way with me and he never ever drunk anything besides beer, what's up with him today.
"Corey, stop! Don't." I cut in.
But, he didn't, he just kept on going. I finally just pulled away from him and wiped my mouth with the back of my hand. All of a sudden, I felt something hard and loud connect with my cheek. I was shocked at what it was. Corey just slapped me! How dare he?! I wanted to start yelling at him, but I didn't, I just stared at him dumbfounded.
