Heather’s POV

The next morning, I woke up feeling like hell. I was stressed, pissed, and just miserable. I lay there on my bed, wrapped up in blankets like a mummy.

My memories of last night came back and I blushed as I thought about William’s warm, comforting hug. It was nice to know he wasn’t a totally cold-hearted guy. But my thoughts went back to the conversation at the dinner table, and I was miserable once again. I sighed and sat up. “What am I going to do now?”, I thought. It was still early and I didn’t need to go to the shelter till noon. I looked around my room and remembered how during my college years, I used to dance my frustrations away. I haven’t done that in a long time, but I think it’s time to start again. I got out of bed and walked into my closet to change into something else. I stripped myself of my pajamas, put on a white tank top and black leggings, and tied my hair into a high ponytail. I went back into my room, grabbed my iHome from the bedside table, and raced downstairs to the living room. It was eerily quiet, William wasn’t home since his keys were missing from the bookshelf. I moved some of the furniture aside and put the iHome down. Once it was plugged in, I played Tennis Courts by Lorde, to listen to while I warm up. As I stretched my arms and back, I could feel myself relaxing and loosening up. The song ended and Take Me Home by Cash Cash began. I started moving my feet and arms to the beat. Soon I was familiarizing myself with all the old choreography I made for the song. I began to do some weird hiphop moves I learned, and was swiveling my hips to the beat. I probably looked like some crazy lady dancing like she was mentally unstable. But it didn’t matter, it just felt amazing to let go. I was ready to do my finale when the music was cut off. I turned around and stood there shocked and embarrased. William stood there with the iHome’s plug in his hand. Behind him, three guys and two girls were staring at me amused.

I blushed a deep red. I glanced back at William and he was staring at me with amusement evident in his dark green eyes and lust? I immediately looked away and cleared my throat. “I apologize for my rude behavior. I didn’t know we had guests.”, I said sheepishly to William’s friends. “I’m Heather Montgomery.”, I said, holding my hand out to the guy in front of the rest. He had dark blonde hair and warm brown eyes. “I’m Jackson Presley.”, he said with a smile, giving me a firm handshake. The next guy stepped forward, grinning at me, “I’m Nathan Presley, this idiot’s younger brother.” I laughed and shook his hand firmly. Nathan had light brown hair and ocean blue eyes. I turned to the last guy, reaching my hand out for a handshake as he did the same. This guy had bright red hair and sky blue eyes. “I’m Freddy Reynolds.”, he said with a small smile. I nodded, smiling, and turned to look at the two girls. One was a brunette with blonde highlights and sky blue eyes. The other had black hair and brown eyes. The brunette stuck her hand out, “I’m Cassy Evans.”, she smiled. I smiled back as I shook her hand, and turned to the other girl. “Jessica Reynolds.”, she said with a big grin on her face. She shook my hand with enthusiasm and I couldn’t help but smile at that. William came to stand behind to me after the introductions were made. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me into his chest. My heart was pounding out of my chest so much, I think everyone could hear it. My stomach was fluttering with butterflies and my breathing was uneven.

My tank top had rose up during my dancing so my skin burned wherever his arms were touching me. I took a deep breath to relax and even my breathing. “It’s nice to meet you all.”, I said with a warm smile, “I hope you guys weren’t waiting a long time for me to stop my crazy dancing.” Freddy grinned, “You have some good moves there. Your hips don’t lie, girl!” I blushed, “Thanks.” William’s arms tightened around my waist to the point where I couldn’t breathe. “William!”, I wheezed out. “Shit, sorry Babe.”, he said and loosened his arms. I turned in his arms and slapped his chest playfully. “Babe? Since when were we in a relationship?”, I thought as I turned back around. His friends all laughed at that. “You two are so cute!”, Jessica gushed. “Jealous much, William?”, Nathan laughed. William put his chin on my shoulder and nuzzled my cheek with his nose. “If it involves my woman, then yes.” What? First my stomach is churning , now its flipping like crazy because of him.

Meanwhile, my brain is going into overdrive. Why is he acting like this? Why is he faking our relationship? What is going on here?
