"Beauty queen of only eighteen, she had some trouble with herself, he was there to help her, she always belonged to someone else."
That was the song that was the one that had been playing when they first met. Kasandra was sitting with her "date" for the freshman dance, her friend Kyle, as well as her friend Amanda, her "date" Jennifer, and a whole group of other friends. Kasandra had never even seen Jennifer before that day, and despite the fact that they had been sitting in this loose circle with their common friends for quite some time now, they still hadn't spoken. When the song came on, they both sang along, and they looked up at each other and smiled.
"I drove for miles and miles and wound up at your door. I've had you so many times before but somehow I want more."
Kasandra played the chords effortlessly, having played and sung this song many times before, whenever her best friend was too upset about something to want to talk. Kasandra had known Jennifer for almost a year now, and every day, her feelings for Jennifer evolved a little more. They had gone from strangers, to friends, to best friends. And for Kasandra, Jennifer evolved to crush and to love.
"I don't mind spending every day, out on your corner in the pouring rain, look for the girl with the broken smile, ask her if she wants to stay awhile, and she will be loved."
Kasandra stopped and watched as, across the street and a few houses down, a beautiful young girl stepped out of her home. Wavy blonde hair, a sweet smile, startling emerald eyes she could have spotted a mile away. When Jennifer plopped down on the front steps and bowed her head, her smile dissolving into a frown, it became obvious to Kasandra that her friend needed her. Kasandra stood up and continued as she walked towards her best friend.
"Tap on my window, knock on my door, I want to make you feel beautiful, I know I tend to get so insecure, it doesn't matter anymore."
Kasandra stood right in front of Jennifer, and the young girl looked up at Kasandra, tears threatening to spill from the corners of her eyes.
"It's not always rainbows and butterflies; its compromise that moves us along, my heart is full and door's always open, you come anything you want."
Kasandra sat down next to Jennifer, and when Jennifer bowed her head again, Kasandra knew full well this was one of those I-don't-want-to-talk-about-it moments. She simply nudged her friend's shoulder with her own to make her look up and smiled, prompting one in return, albeit a much sadder one.
"I don't mind spending every day, out on your corner in the pouring rain, look for the girl with the broken smile, ask her if she wants to stay a while."
Seeing her love like this, so depressed and broken, made her want to hug her and tell her she was here for her. That she would never leave her side, that she needed her, that she loved her.
'I had thought she was blushing when we realized we were both singing it. That's why I asked her to dance. She was staring into my eyes the whole time as I led, and I mouthed the words and twirled her around. She smiled so happily, and she seemed to be having so much fun. But then I asked Amanda… and she's dated two boys since…'
"And she will be loved, and she will be loved, and she will be loved, and she will-"
Kasandra froze when Jennifer grabbed the neck of her guitar. She wasn't using a strap, so Jennifer easily took it out of Kasandra's hands and turned to set it behind her.
'Um, Jenn, what's…"
Kasandra's mind slowed to a stop as Jennifer turned back to face her, those emerald eyes confusing Kasandra, as she had never seen that look in them before. Jennifer smiled, and Kasandra was sure she must be blushing. They sat there for just another second, staring at each, and Kasandra decided she should try and speak up again.
"Jenn, um… I love you."
Kasandra didn't even have time to regret letting that slip out, or even close her mouth after saying "you", because Jennifer had rushed up at her so fast. Soft lips melted into Kasandra's rough and chapped ones; years of playing the trumpet had taken a toll on them. Jennifer encircled her arms around Kasandra's neck, and Kasandra's hands wondered down to Jennifer's hips. It lasted for only a minute, but when the two parted, they were breathless. They didn't move their hands, however. Jennifer looked straight down.
"Kandy, I'm so sorry, I don't know what-"
Kasandra chuckled, and Jennifer looked up, confused. Kasandra took the opportunity to kiss the girl again, and hummed the words she hadn't been able to sing before slipped her tongue into her best friend's—no, girlfriend's—mouth.
