A/N- Ok, so here's a little fic that I had an idea for ages ago, and I wrote a few chapters for a while ago and I just came across it again, and decided to post it. It won't be as long as 'Another time, Another place' but will have just as much drama =]



I turned to see where the noise had come from, and my eyes were drawn to Abbie lying on the floor surrounded by books that had obviously just fallen from the shelves above. She just looked up innocently at me and giggled.

"Whoops," She said, then held her finger up to her lips as to tell me to keep the incident a secret. I was pretty sure everybody in the room noticed, even though the party was in full swing. She attempted to get up but evidently felt dizzy and fell down again. That girl could not hold her alcohol, and she never seemed to learn. Not that explaining it to her again would make a difference. She knew she was a light weight and every time alcohol was involved seemed to want to prove herself.

Pierce came up and slung his arm around me.

"You do know, as designated driver, you have to deal with little miss boozy over there too?" I pushed him off me and gave him a playful punch. I walked up to Abbie and helped her up. Even if I wasn't designated drive tonight, it would still be me coming to her rescue.

"Come on Abs, Let's get you home."

After leaving the party despite her protests and driving her home,I walked through the double doors of Abbie's bedroom with her in my arms. Her arms were around my neck and she was looking up at me. I put my set of keys to her apartment on her coffee table.

"You are the bestest friend ever!" she slurred.

"And I should be, considering I have to deal with you!" I said playfully making fun of her current state. She ignored my comment.

"That's why you're so awesome! You care about me, and you always take extra good care of me," she continued.

"uhh huh," I answered, only half listening as I pulled back the covers to her bed with one hand whilst trying to remain carrying her with the other hand.

"That's why I love you."

"I love you too Hun," I said back to my best friend as I lay her down in her bed. She pushed my hands away and sat up.

"Nooooo, you don't get it! I'm in love with you! And I always have been!" she started giggling again and she leaning back into her bed and fell asleep with a smile on her face.

It was then that it registered what she had just said. Did she just say she loved me? As in the non-friendly way. I tried to remember back to a few seconds ago to what she had said exactly. I was pretty sure she had said, 'I'm in love with you.' I didn't know exactly how to take that. Sure I loved Abbie but in that best friend kind of way. I'd never thought about her in a romantic light before. She was my best friend and had been ever since she shared the sandpit with the first day or pre school. We'd tell each other everything and I could trust her with my life. But her being in love with me? Me-Zachary Daniels, who has been a total player ever since he started high school and he who has had a change in girlfriends around every month. It would never work.

I just couldn't seem to get my head round what Abbie had just said to me. As I walked home I kept thinking about how I didn't want to lose her, but what she said to me was ...was well wow! On one hand she was drunk and didn't know what she was babbling about and I should take any notice of what she says. But on the other hand, didn't people say that when you are drunk , that's when the truth comes out?

I got into my apartment and dropped down on my bed, choosing not to go back to the party. The last thought I had before I fell asleep was, 'I need to talk to her'.

A/N- I know its short but its only to get a taster of the fic, the rest will be longer! Reviews would mean a lot!
