I wanted to go home so badly. But Ness seemed excited and I didn't want to leave her. I knew Derek was staring at me as we went on the Ferris Wheel for the fifteenth time. Ness went to go buy some cotton candy, leaving me and Derek alone.
"Are you mad about the kiss?" was the first thing he asked me.
"Then why are you not talking to me?"
"It's nothing like that."
"But... you're being a bitch. You're the one who kissed me."
"You brought me home. You invited me to the party. And I was drunk."
"Why the hell are you mad, though?!?" he asked, moving closer to me.
"Derek!" someone called.
"I'm taking a break, Steve!" he shouted back.
"I'm not mad! I fucking told you!"
Ness came back with cotton candy in her arms.
"I gotta go," I told her, "here's the money for the cotton candy."
I shrugged, glancing at Derek before I walked home.
