After a couple minutes of gushing over our new presents, we all went into the ballroom for the actual party. There were tables set up everywhere, a dance floor, and a DJ. Kevin, Joe and Nick introduced us to some of their friends and we sat down at our table.
“Gwen, let’s go dance.â? Kevin suggested, and they headed out to the dance floor.
We talked about all kinds of things, and then I noticed Joe staring at me awkwardly. I met his eyes. “What?â?
He blushed. “Do you want to dance?â?
“Sure.â? I smiled at him and we headed off to the dance floor.
He didn’t say anything for a moment. “Wes, I have something to tell you.â?
“What is it?â? I asked, feeling my heartbeat speed up.
“Ever since I met you… I’ve been having a really good time, your fun to be around and your funny and smart…â?
I looked at him wondering what he was trying to say.
“I think I…â? Suddenly he trailed off,all the color drained out of his face.
“ HIT THE FLOOR !â? He yelled tackling me.
A bullet zipped by over our heads.
