So goes for hating him, thought Jane. But, Joe had ulterior motives. He did indeed hate her as well, but something within him ignited when he was around her. He felt different, he felt the attention swarming around him when he gave her those stare, when she stared back. He enjoyed the attention. He liked being "important". But he also felt humbled by her. Can I possibly like her? He thought as the room spun.

What would happen if they were actually together? Alex pondered and dragged his date onto the dance floor as well.
