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.
“What’s wrong?â€?.
HIT THE FLOOR !� He yelled tackling me.
A bullet zipped by over our heads.
