"What would you like me to do?" asked Maria. I pointed to the freezer.
"There's a pizza in there that we need to make."
"I'm on it!" Maria yanked the freezer door open and pulled out the box. While she started dinner, I rushed to open the door. Romy and Ray steped through the door and greeted everyone else. I hadn't even closed the door when Amy, Isabella, Gerard and Frank pushed through the door, bags in their hands.
"Hey bro!" Mikey's voice boomed behind me, causing me to jump a little.
"Looks like someone's a little jumpy or is it just first love nerves?" Frank asked. Is smacked him playfully.
"Oh shut up Frankie! With our luck, they won't even end up together."
"Um....ya know we're right here you guys?!"
Mikey exclaimed. Amy just laughed and rolled her eyes.
"We brought the movie and some extra c.d.s!" she said, heading into the living room. Everyone but Mikey followed her. He went into the kitchen with me. There, we found Maria, a glass of water in her hand.
"Oh Maria! Here, I can take it from here. You go hand out with everyone else." She smiled and started for the living room.
"Thanks E! You comin' Mikes?"
"Nah. I think I'll stay here....just in case."
"Mmm Kay!" Maria called over her shoulder. I just rolled my eyes and pulled a pair of oven mitts out of a drawer. While I took the pizza put of the oven, Mikey left the room. He appeared seconds later, the bags of booze in hand.
"Care for a drink?" Mikey asked.
"Well what do ya want?"
"Just remember....you asked for it!" He poured my drink while I did my best to cut the pizza with a butter knife. When I was done, Mikey handed me a plastic cup. I hesitated before taking a sip. After I did, a huge grin stretched across my face. "Good?" He asked.
"Fuck yeah!" He laughed at my answer. "Dinner's ready!" I screamed into the living room. It took a minute, but eventually, they all came. Everyone but Maria had a drink. When we were finished, we all stumbled into the living room, cups in hand. I was the last one to come into the room. Everyone was already sitting and the opening credits were just rolling onto the screen. Since the couch and a good part of the room was taken up, I sat on the floor at Mikey's feet. I leaned back against his legs and thought I heard him laugh. Suddenly, Shannon jumped up from between Amy and Maria.
"It's not a movie unless you turn the lights out!" She giggled. The movie we were watching was Jaws. It wasn't even 10 minutes into the movie, when I felt Mikey move. Two arms suddenly wrapped themselves around my stomach. He pulled me up onto his lap.
"Sorry...I got lonely." I laughed and took another sip of alcohol. It was strong, just the way I liked it. "You should really gain some more weight ya know."
"But I like being skinny Mikey. You're skinny." The rest of the movie, Mikey and I whispered back and forth, only paying attention to the screen at the very end.
"Good movie! Before we do anything else, I'm gonna go get a refill." The boys stumbled into the kitchen, leaving me and the rest of the girls alone.
"So what do ya wanna do now?" I asked, my voice starting to slur.
"Mmm...how bout spin the bottle?" Bells suggested.
"No, everyone always plays that. Truth or dare?"
Romy climbed onto the couch to sit next me.
"Aww...we play truth or dare all the time!" That was Shannon who clutched to her cup like it was her job. The guys came back into the living room. Mikey handed me another cup which I took eagerly. When everyone was reloaded with booze, Maria some soda, the discussion if what to do next continued.
"Okay, I have an idea. This game is like truth and dare, but without the truth. So we just dare each other, ya know?"
"That sounds fun Frankie! Let's play!" Gerard exclaimed.
"Okay, first we have to split up into teams of 2." The teams were Romy and Ray, Amy and Gerard, Is and Frankie, Shannon and Maria, and me and Mikey. "Good, now we just dare other teams. If a team chickens out, they are kicked out of the game. Izzy and I will go first." They turned away from everyone else and whispered before announcing their victim.
"We choose Romy and Ray!" Announced Iasbella. "You guys have to go to the lady across the street and ask her for a pair of underwear!" Romy and Ray exchanged worried looks before standing up and heading for the door. We all followed, giggling drunkenly. We stood on the door step and watched as they crossed the street. When they knocked on the door, an old woman answered. Everyone started laughing hysterically when the woman slammed the door in there face. They ran back across the street and followed us into the house.
"That was horrible! Ugh, now it's our time to choose. Gerard and Amy, you're up."
Hey everyone! Thanks for all the awesome reviews! If you have any ideas for dares for Frank and Isabella, Gerard and Amy, Shannon and Maria, or Eva and Mikey, please let me know! I would really appreciate that! XO
