Summary: He was a hunky best friend who she thought only wanted to be 'friends, she was the girl who'd ripped his heart from his chest and never gave it back. If only she knew... One-shot
I know that I love you not because you're the first thing I think of when I wake up, or because you're the last thing I think of when I go to sleep. But because even in my dreams I see you face...- Unknown
Gemma sighed as she curled up next to her best friend on her futon-couch. Drake's turquiose-green eyes flickered from the TV to her, where they stayed, "What's up with you today?"
Gemma furrowed her eyebrows and pretended she didn't know what he was talking about, "What do you mean?"
Drake took his face and turned it in different directions and Gemma felt her heart quicken, the eletric sensation still on her skin long after he removed his hand and pushed his dirty blonde hair back from his face, "Your being all depressing...Did that asshole do anything?"
Gemma groaned and sprawled back on the couch, "I think he's going to propose."
Drake tensed up and Gemma looked up in surprise, "What?" Drake snapped.
"You know," Gemma sighed again, "the whole candle lit dinner, black- box thing?"
"I know that," Drake said shaking her, "Why is he proposing to you?"
Gemma shoved Drake's arms and glared at him, "Because apperently he loves me." Unlike someone.
Gemma and Drake glared at each other, until Drake finally stood up and strode to her door, pausing briefly to glare even more at her before walking out the door and slamming it behind him.
Gemma flinched and picked up her cell-phone, dialing her other best friend Riley's number.
Gemma sighed and quickly explained her whole dilemma to Riley.
"Your obviously in love with Dr-"
"Don't say it!" Gemma shrieked.
Riley sighed, "You can't lead Matt on like this, you have to end it."
Gemma sighed, her voice game out bitter-sounding to ehr own ears, "I know he's a player, but I want to be the girl that he hangs up his jersey and leaves the game for."
"TELL HIM!" Riley yelled, " Your bony, freaky, adorable, smart, sensitive, and all that other crap. He'd be a idiot if he didn't love you back."
Riley's smirk could be heard through the phone, "I'm always right! I KNEW you'd end up in love! Who called it? RILEY!"
Gemma hung up the phone and called Matt, who answered on the first ring with a cheerful "Hey Babe!"
"Matt I need to tell-"
Matt laughed , causing Gemma to rolll her eyes at his interuption, "Tell me at Dinner Babe."
"Okay, Bye Matt."
Gemma tensed up and snapped her phone closed. Stupid frikking Drake! God everything would of went smoothly if he just hadn't made her fall in love with him!
Gemma plopped back on the futon and sighed, as she remebered the very first time she met Drake...
Gemma kicked her small legs and giggled as the swing picked up speed 'causing her black pony-tail to tickle her neck.
"I wanna swing."
Gemma looked down at the boy infront of ehr and frowned, "You shouldn't stand infront of the swings, Ms. Daphne said that you can get hurt!"
"Ms. Daphne's a retard!" The blonde boy snorted and stared meanly at her.
Gemma slowed to a stop on the swing, "NO SHE IS NOT!"
"YEAH SHE IS!"
"NUH UH YOUR THE REATRD YOU BUTT MUNCHER!"
"NUH UH YOUR THE RETARTED BUTT-WIPER HOGGING THE SWINGS !"
Gemma burst into tears and kicked him resolutely in the shin, which he returned the favour by jerking her pony-tail.
They'd been best friends ever since.
Gemma sighed as she trudged up the stairs to get ready, what if she was throwing away a life of hapinnes for a guy who probably didn't love her back?
...Damn Drake Landon straight to hell and back.
I sighed and smiled at Matt, "Matt we need to talk-"
Matt's brown eyes darkened and he raised on thick eyebrow, "Why?"
I gave him a patient smile. Stop cutting me off every time I talk and maybe you'd know.
"About us, Matt I think-"
"Good," Matt smirked, "I'm glad you want to talk about us because," He pulled a black box from his pocket and set it on the table, " I have something very serious to ask you."
"I can't marry you," I shoved the box back over towards him, "We're not really in love and your a jerk."
Matt was shocked into silence, he justs stared at me with wide eyes, "You cut me off every five minutes, you make sexist jokes but there not jokes to you Matt, and you always put me down-"
I sighed when he pointed behind me, his eyes wide.
I turned, my annoyance flaring.
roses are red, violets are blue, it's kind of crazy but I want to marry you.
"I said no Matt."
Matt shook his head and shoved the ring back in his pocket, "I didn't write that."
"Then who did?"
"ATTENTION LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!" I froze and stared at the man dressed in a tuxedo standing ontop of a table in the center of the room with wide eyes and an open mouth.
"I WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE THAT I AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH GEMMA ALEXANDERS AND HAVE BEEN SINCE MS. DAPHNE'S FIRST GRADE CLASS WHEN SHE KICKED THE LIVING SHIT OUT ME!"
"Isn't that Drake?" Matt murmered from somehwere enxt to me.
I nodded and stared wide eyed at the atble, my heart pumping and my hands shaking.
He was in love with me too. He...WAS IN LOVE WITH ME TOO!
I was moving forward my heart beaing like a ajck-hammer in my chest as he continued, "SO DON'T MARRY SOMEONE WHO WON'T LOVE YOU AND ADORE LIKE I DO GEMMA-"
When I reached the table I stood up, grabbed him the ear and pulled him through the stunned on-lookers all the way out of the restruant.
Drake glared at me when we were outside, his chin coming up stubbornly, "I don't care if I ruined Mattie's stupid engament plan, I love you and refuse for you to marry that ass wipe!'
I glared back at him, "Why did you let me go out with him? Why didn't you tell me then you idiot?!"
"I was scared," He was quiet, and his cheeks were flaming red, " Your so in control 24\7 Gemma, what was I supposed to do, pour my heart out when you never gave any hint you felt something romantic for me?!"
"YES!" I shrieked kicking him in the shins, "You are you idiot! I watched you with all of those hookers over the years and hoped that you would see that I LOVE YOU but no you stupid, walking std-" I got quiet and stared at him.
Drake dropped to his knee and pulled out a plastic ring with a big pink heart, "I know thisn't gold or anything, but I was kind of in a rush, so Uh, Gemma will you marry me?"
I took the ring, slid it over my finger and punched him the eye, "Of course. Idiot."
"Gemma," Drake groaned clutching his face.
I jerked his hands down and kissed him and it was just like I always imagined.
I forgot we were standing in a bustling street, all I felt were his lips moving against mine, his hands wrapped around my back and my legs in turn were wrapped around his waist.
"You said yes?" Drake pulled back and let out a breathless laugh, " Jesus You really said Yes!"
"Drake We need to talk," I said gripping his face between his eyes, they stared down at me happily and I had to fight to keep my face serious, "I want a big house, a ton of babies, a frikking min van, I want you to kiss me and cuddle me for no reason at all-"
Drake kissed me again and smirked, "Why don't we get started on the babies part?"
