It's This Jealousy (My Darren Story with a TWIST!)

This is that story I started. It'll be really short compared to my other stories. I hope y'all like it! :D

Chapter 10

Chasing stars to lose our shadows, Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine, so won't you fly with me?

~~~~ Shhh, I stole a name from Doctor Who... ~~~~

Layla's POV

I was waiting for Darren, quite impatiently, actually.
Yeah, he still had about seven minutes before he was supposed to be here, but I just really wanted to see him. I hadn't actually spent much time with him for about a week now and it kind of pained me to see him across a class room and not be able to go and hug him or kiss him or even sit with him.
I still felt really bad about Joey but, it was a mistake. I shouldn't have done that and I've apologized about a thousand times. He's said it was okay, but I knew better. He didn't actually forgive me.
I shook the thoughts from my head and went to the kitchenette to get some beer. I knew we had some... Bailey loves beer.
There was a knock at the door and I skipped to go open it.
"Hey!" I smiled and bounced onto my tiptoes to kiss his cheek. "Want a beer?"
"Yeah," Darren smiled. "Sure."
I raced back to the kitchen and got him a bottle. I opened them both and we started talking at first.
"Liv?"
"Darren?"
"Why?"
I looked at him. "Why what?"


Joey's POV

This party was insane. A little too insane for me.
I was sneaking out, making sure none of my friends caught me.
As soon as I was out, I wasn't sure where to go.
I started walking but stopped when I heard a girl crying. The small brunette was sitting next to a big tree and was sobbing. Should I go talk to her? What if she's drunk?
I took a chance and walked over.
"Hey, you all right?"
"Uh," she wiped her tears away. "yeah, I'm... No. No, I'm not."
"What's wrong?" I asked, sitting down next to her. She just stared at me. "Joey. Joey Richter."
"Sally. Sally Sparrow."
"Whoa. That's a great name!"
"Thanks," she smiled slightly.
I readjusted myself. "So, what's wrong?"
"It's stupid."
"Nothing is stupid. What's up?"
"My....ex now.... He was...pushing me. I didn't want to go that far yet, and he was being a jerk about it and he tried to get me drunk..."
Sally's tears were streaming down her face faster. I opened my arms out and she she collapsed against me in a hug.
"Shh, it's okay... Don't worry... He was probably a big jerk and wasn't right for you anyway. Shh... It's going to be okay..." I was rubbing circles into this stranger's back, but it made me feel better that I was taking care of her.
"Thanks, Joey..."
"It's nothing. Do you wanna go get coffee?"
She nodded and I helped her up.


Darren's POV

"Why do you want to be with me again?"
Layla's perfect nose scrunched up in surprise. "Because I love you. W-why do you ask?"
"Because," I sigh. "I just... I don't know. What if we make more musicals and more girls approach me? You're going to get jealous again and I don't want you to get so upset that we break up again."
"A little jealousy is healthy, isn't it?"
"Yeah, I guess."
"Then we're okay. Right?"
I smiled. "Yes, we're good."
She kissed me tentatively and I brought her closer.
It was getting further and further, until she stopped me and asked if I wanted to tell people about us.
"I thought you wanted to keep it a secret?"
"I do," she mumbled. "but I don't want anyone to think you're single."
"What about Joey?"


Layla's POV

"I... I don't know. Do you really think he'll mind?" I asked, thinking I knew the answer.
"Well, I th--"
Darren's phone was ringing, and I grabbed it from the nightstand. Joey Richter said the display.
"Answer it!" I hissed.
"We're kinda in the middle of something, didn't you notice?"
"ANSWER IT!"
"Fine!" Darren took the phone from me. "Hello? ...Hey, man! ...Nah, not really... Sally Sparrow?... Yeah, I think she's in my music theory class... Mhmm... What?... Seriously? .... Joey, I love you so much, man! Actually, I'm with her now. ...I'm sorry. ....Yeah. I'll see you later."
"So?" I asked after he hung up.
"Joey...moved on. He's crushing on a girl named Sally. And he said that he didn't mind if we were together again."
I squealed and kissed him. "I love you!"
"I love you, too!"
