"MAYBELLE!" I winced at my enemy's loud voice. Even though I didnt see, I knew that my plan had worked. And that right now, he was running to find me.

"Time to go," I muttered.

I dashed out the school doors, laughing my ass off. But the laughing was what was slowing me down, so he catched up to me.

I was half way down the field when I went down with Cade on top of me. I started laughing even harder when I saw that his face was covered with the green slime we made yesterday in science. Cade knew this was coming when I had that smirk all over my face yesterday.

"Your going to get it!" He said, wiping slime all over me. I squirmed and tried to break free of his grasp, but by the time I was free, I was covered in slime just as he was.

I've known Cade since we were little because our parents are best friends. Therefore, when we were young, he was the one who did stuff like this to me all the time and now I am getting back at him with revenge. Ah,revenge is bliss.

I started running again with him trailing after me. It didnt help that he played almost every sport in history and I was the bookworm. Then I saw my escape and hid in behind a bush. I watched as he was looking around for me, noticing how gorgeous he looked with his black hair in green slime and his emerald eyes brighter than ever.

Crap! DO NOT THINK ABOUT HIM, MAYBELLE!

Okay, so maybe I had a little crush on him.

He walked away in the opposite direction and just when I thought the coast was clear, I went out of my hiding spot.

Only to get pushed down again.

"Your not running away from me," he said. Why did I think that has a double meaning to it?

"Geez, do you always do this? Just jump on top of girls and crush our skinny bones?" I said, irritated

I tried to ignore the spark of electricity when I felt him on me and the sound of my beating heart.

"I barely count you as a girl," he said and finally got off of me.

I stood up and turned to face him. "Thanks," I said, taking that as a compliment. Since I hate to be thought of as one of those barbies. They make me sick to my stomach with all there makeup and slutty clothes.

He rolled his eyes. "That wasnt a compliment," he said.

"Oh, I know." I smirked. Then I got out one of those little squirt guns in my back pocket that had some more green slime in it and squirted it at him again. It hit him square in the face.

"Happy birthday, slime boy!" I said, laughing. But then he had that angry look on his face and I knew I had to run again.

"Hope you like your present!" I yelled after I started running.

Yes, it was his birthday. The perfect day for my plan and what couldnt be more perfect than green slime?

But then five minutes later, he was on top of me again. Geez. . .thats like, what? The third time now? I'm not going to be surprised when I find bruises tomorrow.

"God, do you have to keep doing that? Next thing you know, I'll be crushed as a bug!" I yelled.

Then I realized how close his face was to mine. His face wasnt that close before, was it? I swear my heart was beating out of my chest and that my face was as red as a tomatoe.

"I told you that you werent running away from me," he said and the next thing he did surprised me.

He kissed me.

And it wasnt one of those kisses he gave to those bimbos. No, it was more slow and passionate. And although I struggled at first, I gave in and melted. But then I realized what we were doing and that he was suppose to be my enemy, for gods sakes and pushed him off me as hard as I can.

"WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING?" I yelled, standing up. Good thing, no one was here except me and him.

He raised an eyebrow. "What does it look like?"

"YOU KISSED ME! Never in a million years would I think you would do that!" I said, a little frusturated. I mean, I thought he had a girlfriend? That Carly girl or whatever. She's way prettier than me and yet he kisses me!

"You are a bigger idiot than I thought," he said, shaking his head.

"I'm not an idiot!" I protested.

"Then why havent you figured out that I like you?" I froze.

Then I started laughing.

He likes me? No way! Thats not true, is it?

I walked away from him, still laughing. "Whatever!" I yelled behind my shoulder.

"Come on! You have to admit that you like me too! I know it, May!" he yelled back.

oOoOoOo

"You look so hot in that dress!" Stacy, my best friend, said.

I rolled my eyes. Right now, we were getting ready for Cade's birthday party. I clearly did not want to go, but I was forced to and I couldnt say no to my parents. My mom made me wear her favorite dress that she said looked best on me. It was a black, halter dress, that went down to my knees. Stacy curled my hair and put it up in a bun with some of the curls dangling in my face.

The 'incident' that happened that morning was still in my mind. And whenever I thought about it, it made me laugh. But then that all went away as I remembered what he said and did.

"Then why havent you figured out that I like you?" That had been in my mind all day like a broken record playing it over and over again.

Was he serious? What about Carly?

I havent told Stacy or anyone about that kiss yet. I avoided him since this morning and I knew that I was being mean, but I needed to think.

"Hey Stacy? Is Cade still going out with Carly?" I asked, before I could think.

"Hm? Oh no, they broke up like a month ago, didnt you know?" she said with one of those I-know-something-you-dont-know smiles.

"No, I'm not one of those people who like to gossip," I said.

"I thought you did because. . ." she trailed off without finishing.

"Thought what?" I asked her.

She shook her head. "Nevermind, come on, were going to be late"

When Stacy said that his party was going to be the biggest event of the year, she wasnt kidding. I knew how big his house was, but now it looked so smaller with about half the school in there. Loud music was playing and people were dancing, more like grinding.

Right when we got there, I started heading towards the food. What? I love food, okay? And they had good food too. I grabbed what I could and headed off to my own place.

There was this balcony that I loved and always came too when I was here. It had a great view of the mountains and the stars. When I got there, I leaned against the edge, enoying my food.

"Your still a pig, I see," a voice said behind me.

I didnt need to turn around to see who it was. I made my decision already and I was going to tell him (if he was serious).

I glared at Cade. "It's not my fault your chef makes good food," yes, they had a chef. Thats how rich they are.

He chuckled. "That is true, but your going to eat all the food before anyone else"

I stuck my tongue at him.

It was silent after that and I was about to break it, but Cade beat me to it. "I still like you, May and I'm not joking"

Damn it. He really wasnt kidding. His eyes said it all.

I didnt say anything and continued looking at the mountains because if I looked at Cade right now, I might never look away.

"You like me, but you wont admit it," he continued.

I shook my head. "I'm already in love with someone"

I can feel him stiffen and almost laughed when I caught myself.

"You are? Who?" He asked in a jealous tone.

I smiled. "He's arrogant and thinks he's all that. He's an idiot and we fight all the time, but thats how our relationship is. Girls are all over him and I sometimes get jealous. But under all that, he's kind and just needs someone in his life," I said.

"Sounds like a jerk," he stated.

I almost laughed that he called himself a jerk.

"Well, I hope it works out okay between you two," he said.

I smiled. "Me too"

He looked kind of hurt and jealous. He was about to walk away when I grabbed his arm. He turned around and thats when I kissed him. Cade seemed shocked at first, but then realized that I was talking about him.

"You do realize that you called yourself a jerk?" I said, after breaking apart.

"You really had me scared there, you know that?" he said.

"I'm sorry, but I love you," and he kissed me again.

I heard him say, "I love you too," and that made my day. I couldnt be any happier that the person I had fallen for loves me.

"This is the best birthday present ever," He said, smiling at me when we broke apart.

"Are you sure? Because I got you even a better present!" I said.

"Oh really? What is it?" I can tell by the look in his eyes that after he said that, he knew what it was.

Too late.

"This!"

Yup, I brought the squirt gun and it is refilled with slime! I squirted it in his face until he grabbed it from me.

"Hey!" I said, reaching for the gun again.

But he stopped me by crushing his lips on mine again. Curse Cade! He knows thats the only way that gets me distracted.

Unfortunately, since his face was covereed with slime, he also got it on my face. But I didnt care, all I wanted was him.

"Happy Birthday, slime boy"
