a new silence settles between them, but doesn't last long this time. in facts, a few seconds after, grayson gets up from his chair and holds out his hand for avery to take. "do you want to dance one last time with me?" she hesitates a few seconds before taking it, smiling. "it would be with pleasure." as they got onto the dance floor, this town by niall horan starts playing. he puts his hands on her waist while she puts hers around his neck and they start dancing together, stuck together. when the lyrics "you still make me nervous when you walk in the room" played, avery and grayson both looked at each other and leaned in for one last kiss, tears in their eyes. it was more a goodbye kiss than anything else. they were not meant for each other, in another life maybe, but not in this one. at the end of the song, they finally pull off and look at each other one last time, tears rolling down on their cheeks. he sticks his forehead to hers and softly caresses her cheek. "goodbye, avery." "goodbye, grayson." he starts walking away without turning back, a sad smile on his lips. they were officially done, but in good terms this time.
grayson is sitting alone at a table, while everyone else is dancing. him and avery broke up not so long ago because she thought he cheated on her with one of his puck bunnies, while we all know he would never do that. he is a gentleman coming right from england, but that, no one knows it, not even his two bestfriends that are probably making out in the lockers room or the bathrooms. he took his phone out of his pocket and started looking at posts on instagram. "can i sit here?" a familiar voice said, making gray's head instantly getting up. a lamp in the throat, he nods vaguely and puts back his phone in his pockets without taking off his eyes from her. avery. she sits in the chair besides him and smiles a little, looking at him. "what are you doing here, alone?" "well i have no prom date and the two dumbasses i call my "best friends" went i don't know where with their dates... so yeah. and you? didn't you have a date?" she shakes her head, passing her hand through her hair nervously. "i actually found out that he already had another date when i came here. i then searched for you and here you are." they both stay quiet for a few minutes, both not comfortable. the last time they talked to each other, it didn't really end up well. he lets out a sigh and looks down at his feet. "i'm sorry, really sorry." "for what?" she asks, confused. "for the last time, when we broke up. i was really mad, i wasn't thinking before speaking and i'm sorry for everything i said to you." a soft smile appears on her lips. avery puts her hand on his and strokes it. "i know, don't worry. i'm sorry too for calling you a cheater while you didn't actually cheated on me. it was stupid, i shouldn't have gotten this jealous. do you think you'll be able to forgive me one day for that?" he shrugs his shoulders. "maybe..."

hazel and ricky are both in his car, going to the mall to buy some new clothes and probably food. while he drives the car, she puts the radio on and turns the volume up. after a few songs, sucker by jonas brothers comes up and hazel pushes a high-pitched scream, almost giving a heart attack to ricky, and starts singing along. "oh my fucking god, why did you scream like that?!" "because one of my favorite songs by the loves of my life is playing!" "the... loves of your life? them?" he raises an eyebrow and she nods. "yes! the jonas brothers are literally the best boyband ever being in this planet!" he stays quiet for a little bit before bursting into laughter. hazel furrows her eyebrows and crosses her arms over her shoulders. "what's so funny?" "you saying that they're the best boyband ever being on this planet." "it's true, thought." "bebe, we all know they will never be able to reach one direction's level. no one will ever be able to." "you love one direction?" "like everyone else, of course. my little sister is a huge fan of them and kept playing their songs all the time. i started actually liking some of them and yeah." she giggles and shakes her head. "awh, how cute! but i still think the jonas brothers are literally the best." "you won't think that for much longer, trust me."
hazel gives the list to ricky, a little smile on her lips. he takes it, looks at it and opens his mouth wide. "what the hell is number three?! do i look like a fashionista to you?" she shrugs her shoulders, her smile growing a little more. "no, but you said you'd do anything for me to forgive you and to, also, get back with me." "yeah but- wait. how am i supposed to buy these on number ten? they're like super expensive!! and where do you except me to-" hazel lets out a long sugh and tries to her list back, feeling pissed and disappointed at the same time because of how he keeps complaining. "you, i can always take back my list and never talk with you ever again, if it's too complicated for you." ricky lifts the piece of paper up in the air, shaking his head. he looks at her, letting out a little sigh before looking back at the list. "no it's fine, i got this." he pauses. "i think."

sabrina is at grayson's house, in the kitchen with noah so they can actually work on their project for the literature class. "so... what do you want to start with?" no answer. she clears her throat. still nothing. "okay... do you even know what we have to do?" no answer. noah is actually more concentrated on his phone than on what she's saying. why would he even answers her? she ignored him last night, at malone's, so he's just doing the same thing. what a damn child. "are you even listening to me?!" she hits violently his arm, annoyed, and finally gets his attention, even though he is now pissed. "why did you hit me?! "because you were not answering me!" "i was just doing the same thing you did to me last night!" "you've gotta be kidding me right now! we have a fucking project to do and all you do is act like a child?! me estás tomando el pelo?!" he blinks his eyes multiple times, since he didn't understand one word of her last sentence. "what?" she sighs, already desperate by him. "do you know what we have to do or do i have to explain it to you?" "i already know what to do." he answers, rolling his eyes. "good. now, what do you want to start with?" "the easiest thing, so the appreciation of the book." she nods her head and take out a paper with questions, reading them outloud. "what was your favorite quote from the book and why?" noah takes out his phone and starts typing on it, making brina's eyebrows frown. "what are you doing?" "i'm searching answers from internet, duh. i didn't read the book, it was too boring. oh, and i hate reading."
