toward her breast. Fucking hell, we were in the middle of a frat party and there I was feeling her up. I pulled my mouth away and leaned my forehead against hers as we both tried to catch our breath from the most amazing kiss of my life. “What are you doing to me?” I whispered.
    She looked up and I could see desire raging in her eyes. I couldn’t breathe—all I wanted to do was take her out of that house and back to my apartment. Then I wondered what in the hell I was doing. I knew there was no way that I could let it go any further, but god I wanted this girl more than I had ever wanted anyone in my entire life. She was beautiful and sexy, but she deserved so much better than me. I wasn’t good enough for her.
    The song ended and I slowly pulled away from her. I looked down and once again the sadness engulfed me as the memories of eyes just like hers flooded my head, I had to get away, but there was no way I could continue to be the ass that treated her like shit.
    “Thanks for the dance, Angie.”
    She looked up at me. “Caleb, what’s wrong?” I saw the confusion in her eyes, but I couldn’t explain.
    “Nothing sweetheart, I just have to go. I’ll see you in class on Tuesday.” I told her and went to find Josh. I needed to get the hell out of that house. Shit, why had I called her sweetheart?
    I eventually found Josh in the kitchen talking to Nick. Josh looked at me as I walked into the room, a shit-eating grin on his face.
    “What?” I said as I clearly gave him a look that said leave it alone.
    “No wondered you wanted to switch with me. You clearly had more than dancing on your mind,” Josh laughed. Nick on the other hand didn’t look too happy.
    “Shut the fuck up asshole. Are you ready to go or not?” I knew Josh hated hanging out late when he wasn’t drinking. Usually he couldn’t wait to get back home and make up for it there.
    “Whatever dude.” Josh pulled his keys out of his pocket as we went out to his car. I knew I was wasted, but it had felt awesome to relax tonight—that was, until I kissed Angie. The kiss was incredible, but I wanted to go home and get so wasted that I passed out for the night.
    “Alright, dude. What the fuck is up with you and Angie?” Josh asked me as we got into the car.
    “Nothing man, let it go.”
    “One day you don’t want to be anywhere near her—not even to complete a project for a midterm grade. Then a few days later you have your tongue shoved down her throat, looking at her like you never want to let her go.”
    “Like I said, it’s nothing. Right now, there’s a bottle of Jack back at the apartment with my name on it.”
    When we got back to the apartment I got the bottle of Jack and two shot glasses and brought them into the living room. I sat on the sofa while Josh sat in the recliner. I poured us both a shot. Before long we had finished more than half of the bottle, and I was so fucking wasted I couldn’t feel anymore. Josh wasn’t nearly as drunk as I was, but then again he hadn’t been drinking at the house.
    “I think you have feelings for Angie.” He shook his head. “Man, I have never seen you so much as give most girls a second look. And even when you do, you would only have wanted to leave the party if it was to go back to her place.” He smirked. “Especially if she was as willing as Angie was tonight.” Josh was pushing it and given how drunk I was, there was no filter to stop me from giving him the information he wanted.
    “Of course I want her. It’s so bad I can’t think straight when I’m around her, but I just can’t,” I replied sadly.
    “What’s holding you back? If you like her go for it—Nick will get over it. He tried hitting on her earlier but she wasn’t having it. She actually asked me to dance to get away from him.”
    “Shit, this has nothing to do with him.” I stood up and ran my hand through my hair. “She reminds of the shit I left behind when I came here.”
    “Seriously when are you going
