My ImmortalI'm so tired of being here.
Being lost, alone, searching for myself. Misfit. It's what I am. Even with my closest friends, I never felt accepted. I never knew who I was. I was never happy.
Growing up with Darcy, I was so afraid I'd end up like her. Racy, wild. Getting caught up with the wrong crowd. Depressed. I thought if I stayed close to God and avoided all the...bad people, then I'd be okay. And life would be perfect.
I've been that way since I was a child.
And when I met you, my instinct kicked in. I wanted to stay away from you. I knew you would change me, and break down everything I had built up. I felt that big, life-changing things would come if I got involved with you.
But I also felt...a spark. A spark that I knew was something special. And I wanted it to grow, I wanted to make a fire. But I supressed those feelings with all those stupid childish fears.
You saw through that, though.
You saw that it wasn't really me.
And you refused to give up, and I fell in love with you.

"I like girls with something to offer," he replied after a pause, looking back at KC. He half-smiled, his mouth slanted. "I like a girl who can make me think, or challenge me. If all a girl has to offer is that she's hot, I don't really care."
"Oh, wow," Drew interrupted the conversation, and the rest of the group turned to look at him. He was grinning at his cell phone, his eyebrows raised and his bright white teeth gleaming. Sav tried to catch a glimpse of Drew's phone.
"Speaking of hot," Drew explained his text, still grinning widely. "Alli's having a girls' night. It doesn't get much hotter than a bunch of girls in Victoria's Secret pajamas confessing their deepest thoughts and sleeping together."
Eli laughed, Adam rolled his eyes, and KC raised his eyebrows and grinned. Sav made a face of sheer horror.
"Dude! That's my sister

"What?" Eli asked, grinning playfully. Clare's lip-biting was no longer working. She couldn't resist the almost-dimples that appeared by Eli's mouth when he smiled like that.
"It's nothing," she replied, trying not to giggle. Eli gave her a challenging look.
"Are you laughing at me?" he asked, tilting his chin up playfully. "Because I swear, one crack about my eyeliner..."
Clare giggled and grabbed Eli's hands. She looked down at them, admiring how well they fit in hers. She pushed the ring on his thumb around a little before speaking.
"No, it's not that. It's just..." she paused, and smiled again when Eli scooted closer to her on the bed. "I'm glad we're finally together. I don't know if I could've survived waiting for something to happen any longer."
She looked up and saw the crooked smile on Eli's face, the one she was beginning to see more and more as the two of

Adam was circling the couch, his big blue eyes frantically scouring the room for anything that could be out of place. He walked over to the TV and looked at the clock on the Comcast box, then the clock on his cell phone. Both times were the same.
"Adam, it's 8:05. You told Eli to come at 8," Drew said from his spot on the couch. He pulled the lever on the side to pull up the foot rest. He took out his phone and nonchalantly sent a sweet reply to Alli's text. Adam let out a sigh of exasperation.
"Exactly, and it's 8:05," Adam replied, emphasizing the five. He put his hands in the pockets of his baggy jeans. "You did tell K.C. and Sav it was 8?"
"Yes, Adam. For the million-and-tenth time, I made sure everyone knew to come at 8. Nobody's late yet! It's only been five minutes! You can't expect everyone to come on time." Drew reached forward to take a Dorito from the bowl on the table. "Why do you care so much anyway?"
"Last time I tried to have a gu
