Chapter nine
The necklace significance
The trio assisted Shania with her dress and makeup, all done for the night. Jessica picked a red strapless gown with slits by the side, towards the top of the dress were shiny stones and it had a thick ribbon where the slits started from. Sarah picked a black high heels for her and of course the black clutch.

Linda helped with her hair and makeup, and she couldn't be more thankful as she awed at herself in the mirror. She was looking prettier with the help of her new friends, Dylan would be dumbstruck when he sees her, she loved the dress more.

Funny enough, jess wasn't jealous as she dressed Shania up, she felt happy, doing what she knows how to do best. Through out their tour at the boutique, she was full of life, she forgot about Dylan or the threat, she was undergoing her therapy which was shopping and glamour.

Sarah left Linda's immediately she was done, jess has been staying there ever since the threat issue happened. They were still admiring shania's beauty when Dylan honked his car outside Linda's apartment, shania's joy knew no bound as she took careful steps down the stairs with Linda clearly following behind, jess decided to sit back in the room.

Dylan was so awed when he saw Shania, he couldn't hide the smile that tugged at his lips, he thanked Linda and told her to extend his gratitude to the girls. He held Shania by the arm and led her to the car. Opening the door, he gestured "shall we?".

Linda walked quietly into the room, she held jess by the hand who in turn gave her a lazy smile. She understood her best friend more than anyone else, she and jess had been friends right after she got to carlifonia, they met Sarah a year after at school. What attracted her to jess was a new gucci bag she spotted with her and a matching converse at a show, the show always took place in a big bar which isn't far from linda's house.

They engaged in little conversation and exchanged numbers, since then they had been gist partners, shopping partners and they shared one thing in common, no parental attention, this only drew them closer. She and Jessica were like sisters from different parents. "mind joining me the the bar jess?" Linda thought she could lighten up her friend's mood. "no thanks, I'll just be OK, seems I might catch sleep early this evening" jess assured her, still portraying that lazy smile. Linda gave her a peck on the cheek and left for the bar.

Jessica stared at her lost but found necklace, feeling grateful for finding it again. It had a key as the pendant, she and Dylan had exchanged the necklace seven years ago.

She had a feeling they might be separated for a while, maybe they weren't going to the same high school. She had told him not to forget her, to keep the necklace like it was her heart.

He had held her face in his hands and brushed the tears off her face with his thumb telling her that necklace was the key to his heart, she's free to open it anytime she wanted since she had the key and right on that spot, he had given her his very first kiss, their first kiss, a light peck on the lips before they left for the dry garden where after the incident took place she never saw him again till this present.

She wiped the tears that had started to form in her eyes and laid on the bed sniffing under the duvet. She had lost Dylan and now she's a mess. She cried a little till sleep engulfed her, the only remedy to her pain for some hours.

Chapter ten
Love or lust
Dinner with Dylan was like a dream come true to Shania, she had done a thorough research on him, he hadnt been any relationship before, to her she was playing the role of his first love, she thought him to be caring, and a real gentle guy.

He opened the door to the restaurant for her, it was a Japanese restaurant, he had booked a table earlier that day and it had roses and short candles. He shifted the chair backwards allowing her to seat, giving her a warm smile.

On the table were plates of well roasted and spiced steaks with plates of sukiyaki and two red wines. There was also green tea inside two small tea cups and fresh sliced fruits to in a ceramic bowl. Shania was speechless. "so does the Princess feel comfortable? Does she like my preparation?" Dylan asked her.

"yes I love it so much. Thank you for taking your time to set all these just for me, I really feel pampered and I never knew you could be so romantic" she replied him smiling all through.

"well I just tried my best at least for a high school boy falling in love, it's a good start. Shall we?" he gestured towards the food and they ate in silence staring at each other on different occasions. Dylan thought Shania to be so pretty, he thought about her lately on which term he doesn't understand or could the reason be because she got close to him and spent more time together, or because she was the only girl he had tried to move close to. He knew he felt something for her but he couldn't place a finger on it, but it wasn't as deep as something he used to feel before for someone he doesn't even know if she exists. Everytime he tried to think really deep about the disturbing thought, he gets a lot of headaches and he wasn't ready to pass out now. Was he inlove or lust?

He just knew he needed her, he needed to love her to clear his head a little, she was always looking perfect and radiant, anytime he waits for her in the dancing room, he always enjoyed the way she moves her body without stress. One part of him doubted the fact that he loves her buh he knew he wanted her.

"could it be that something is bothering you so much? "she snapped him out of his thoughts, then he realised she was looking worried, having dug halfway into her food, his looked like he just took a spoon. He hated the fact that he made her worried.

"not at all, I was just thinking of what to say to you, I don't know how you're gonna take it but trust me I wouldn't want to offend you, if you don't want it you can just tell me".

"shhhh just say whatever you want to say, I'm all ears" Shania replied him but she was scared, she thought he found faults in her, she was already thinking of what to say if he eventually finds something bad in her or maybe she overdressed.

"Shania, I want you. Look if you aren't ready you can decline, well I could wait for you. Buh I want you to know I feel something for you and it's very unusual of me. I think we should stay closer than friends, you could be my girlfriend but that's if you are positive about it".

She was surprised at his outburst, well she expected it, and what does he think he wants her to do, she has been dreaming about being his girlfriend, he even fought for her and waited for her in the dancing room till she finishes rehearsal, he was just so cool, what more could she ask for? He even drops her at home most of the tym, and when he holds her by the waist, it's like heaven. "yes, Dylan yes, I want to be yours, I mean I will gladly be your girlfriend". She looked at him with admiration in her eyes, at this stage, he wasn't sure of his feelings but she was his girlfriend now.

He pushed the chair backwards and stood up to lift her, he engulfed her in a tight heart warming embrace, releasing her, he tilted her chin upwards and brought his lips to hers. She tasted like the red wine, she melted against him and welcomed his kiss. He was gentle and he nibbled at her lower lips, he slid his tongue into her mouth, he tasted like mint. He drew back and kissed her softly again before letting go. "that was awesome" she couldn't contain her excitement.

"you tasted like honey babe. I should drop you at home now". He held her by the waist and they left the restaurant to his car.

* * * * *
"who called? "Jessica asked Linda." it was Shania "." how did her dinner go? "jess asked again without lifting her face from the novel she was reading." jess I'm not sure you wanna hear this". Linda sounded unsure.

"of course I do, don't deprive me of this gist, or do you want me hearing it from a third party? That's not going to be fresh" she lived her face from the novel and gave Linda a protesting look. "alright fine, she and Dylan are now an item and they... They kissed to and she was just gushing about how good it tasted and......" "it's OK, at least I heard the gist already". "jess are you okay?" "yes I am, I just feel slightly hurt, at least I know I lost him forever so it's a good sign I move on quick. I can't snatch shania's happiness away from her"

"oh baby you are just too pure". Linda ran up to the bed to hug her best friend she stayed that way and allow her to tear away freely in her arms. She felt tears sting her eyes also.

Chapter eleven
Rage and emotions
One tends to move on when reality sets it evn if the happenings isn't forgotten.

Jessica moved on her life like she wasn't feeling anything or she wasn't hurt, after all, he doesn't comprehend anything that's happening so why is she disturbing herself, for all she cares he could be pretending or could it be that he lost his memory and correla wasn't trying to help. Well it doesn't matter anymore, her life was in danger if she tried to pry and he was happy with Shania so scored Settled. Even Linda and Sarah had began to feel irritated with shania's rantings about how perfect Dylan is and Jessica takes the matter all cool.

The library had now become a place of solace for Jessica but with a good motive, she gets to read all kinds of books for distraction and today wasn't an exception only that jake came to interrupt after so many weeks of their little scandal.

Jessica raised her head from the big textbook she was reading, she almost ran away when she saw jake staring at her from the seat in front of her table. "what the hell are you doing here?"

Jake looked at her apologetically before saying anything. "see jess I'm so sorry for what happened in the storage room, it was very stupid and low of me but I was very grateful when I didn't end up violating you. I haven't the courage to come and apologise because I was scared of Dylan beating me up again or your friends stoning me to death. I'm very sorry and I mean it" he extended a little box he was holding to her, it had a small card and a bold I'm sorry.

She opened the box and found a gold necklace there, tears filled her eyes, she didn't want to think of Dylan's necklace. She perfectly hid her sorrowful face and gave jake a smile. "you aren't buying my acceptance for your apology are you? I will take that as a no and you are forgiven but I don't think i would be able to hang out with you anymore".

"no problem mam as long as I'm forgiven, then see you later, bye". Jake left the library making her release a relieved sigh.

Dylan walked over to her table and drew the sit jake had occupied earlier on. She didn't even give him a second glance. "you shouldn't be talking to that guy you know" he started.

"and who are you to tell me who to talk to?" she fired back at him.

"see, I understand but......"

she cut him halfway through his speech. "the fact that you saved me doesn't mean you can order me around and I've thanked you for that, and oh u even rubbed it in my face, you reminded me that I should be embarrassed and lastly, you said I shouldn't show up in front of you anymore".

He was dumbfounded, he never expected that the carefree and pure hearted Jessica Could be this fierce. He never really meant those words, he just acted them out because that was what his mother wanted, but at that moment, he felt the need to protect her. "I just thought......."

she didn't let him complete his speech again. "please If you don't mind, I will appreciate it if you leave, I need my privacy." He left without saying anything, he met Sarah and Linda at the entrance like they saw everything. He paused to say something but gave it a second thought and left instead. The girls rushed to where jess was sitting and instantly, she knew what they wanted. 'the gist'.

The library section ended with gists and laughter. Jessica decided to grab pack of burgers before they headed home while Sarah and Linda waited back to chat up the old librarian on fashion.

Dylan caught hold of Jessica's hand before she got to the cafeteria. She gave a sound of protest as she turned abruptly towards him using her hands to hit his chest. "what do you want from me? Just what is it Dylan?" he didn't evn know the reason he stopped her anymore so he apologised but she didn't buy his apologies.

"see just leave me alone already, I think I'm in enough danger as it is, I don't even know you and besides, I shouldn't be on a bad term with Shania because of you." with that, she snatched her hands from him and left to get the burger.
