"C'mon girls, I want to see all your dresses!" Alison exclaimed from outside her bedroom.

Nervously opening the door the girls walked in front of Alison, hoping that she would like their dresses.

"Oh my God! You guys look amazing...I think yours is my favourite Em" Alison smirked, causing Emily to blush.

Aria had chosen a cute black dress which helped make her legs look longer, Hanna had chosen a long blue dress which made her eyes pop, Spencer had chosen a elegant green dress which hugged her figure, while Emily had got a small pink dress which made her cleavage look even better. Alison of course, had gone for a sparkling gold dress which made her blonde hair shine even more than usual. Meanwhile Kara had chosen a pretty purple dress which made her look a lot older than she was.

"C'mon, Jason's waiting to take us there" Alison said, pulling them down the stairs.

"Jason? Are you sure he's sober enough to drive?" Aria asked, worried.

"Yeah, he's actually not been drinking so much lately, but he's still a creep" Alison replied, causing Kara to roll her eyes.

Suddenly Kara remembered she had left her small bag in Alison's room and sighed.

"I'll catch up with you guys in a minute, I forgot my bag in Ali's room" Kara told them, hurrying back to get it.

She found it under a pile of clothes a few minutes later and practically knocked into someone when she turned around.

"God Jason! You scared me!" She said, giving him a light shove.

"Sorry, Ali sent me to see what was taking so long" He said, trying not to laugh at her startled state.

"Her messy room is what to so long..." Kara trailed off when she saw Jason was giving her a strange look.

"What? Have I got something on me?" Kara asked, surveying her dress for smudges.

"No...You just look, uh never mind" He said, practically running out of the room.

Laughing lightly, Kara followed him, not missing the light blush on his face. Maybe she wasn't the only one who had a crush, she thought to herself.


Jason had avoided Kara's gaze for most of the drive there and once they did stop he quickly wandered off into the party himself.

"Alright ladies, let's mingle and meet back here in an hour okay?" Alison told them, quickly walking off.

The rest of the girls shrugged and went their own ways as Kara went to find Mona. She soon found her outside and tapped her on her shoulder.

"Hey, you made it!" Kara exclaimed.

"Well I couldn't let you down could I?" Mona giggled.

"Of course not. C'mon let's go see what food this party has" Kara grinned, pulling Mona back into the house.

"You know most people look for alcohol when they go to these parties, not food" Mona laughed.

"Well I'm not most people" Kara winked as they entered the kitchen and saw the objects on the table.

"Let's see then. Vodka, vodka, mysterious punch and oh would you look at that...more vodka" Kara sighed.

"Are you not going to have any?" Mona asked.

"I think I'll just stick with the bottled water that I know is not spiked" Kara told her, pulling a bottle out of the fridge.

"Do you really think Noel would spike this drink?" Mona questioned in disbelief.

"I wouldn't put it past the creep" Kara said, opening some of the cardboards and finding a packet of crisps and biscuits.

"Kara, I don't really think you're supposed to be looking there" Mona scolded her.

"Oh c'mon, it's not like Noel isn't rich enough to replace a packet of crisps and biscuits" Kara retorted, opening the crisps and eating them.

"Alright, give me a packet" Mona caved in.

"That's my girl" Kara grinned.

Half an hour later, they had devoured the food and started dancing. It wasn't long however before Kara realised she needed the toilet after she had drank so much after the food.

"Hey, I'll be back in a minute. I've just got to go to the loo" Kara told Mona, as she hurried up the stairs and pushed past a couple making out in the hallway.

Once she came back down to the party she frowned when she couldn't see Mona anywhere. Wondering if she had gone back to the kitchen, Kara entered the room and saw three tall men surrounding the small girl.

"C'mon hunnie, don't be shy" The tallest one said, advancing on her.

"Hey asshole, back off!" Kara shouted, walking into between the two.

"Oh, I'm so scared. What are you going to do? Give me a paper cut?" The man laughed.

"Actually this" Kara said, as she raised her leg and kicked the man, hard, in his crotch.

She smirked as he fell to the floor, obviously in agony.

"You little bitch" One of the other men shouted, as he advanced on her.

She quickly picked up a cutting board and hit him square in the face with it, knocking him to the floor. The other man quickly ran out of the room, knocking into Jason who had obviously heard the commotion.

"Are you alright?!" Jason questioned, hurrying over to her.

"Yeah, I think I want to go home now" Kara told him, as she pulled Mona out of the room.


The three of them found themselves driving to drop Mona off a few minutes later, while Jason was still fretting over Kara.

"God, I can't believe those guys" Jason sighed.

"They were just idiots, nothing to get angry about" Kara stated.

"Nothing to get angry about? They could have hurt you...and your friend!" Jason retorted, acknowledging Mona for the first time.

"Please, they were so drunk they were already having a hard time standing...I've dealt with a lot worse" Kara told him.

"What does that mean?" Jason inquired.

"I grew up in care, Jason. Unsurprisingly I met a few nasty guys in my time" Kara snapped.

"...Um guys, this is my house" Mona said, interrupting the pair who were intensely staring at each other.

"Oh right...uh, are you okay?" Kara questioned, worried.

"Yeah I'm fine. Thanks Kara, you really helped me out tonight" Mona stated.

"Well you wouldn't have been there without me..." Kara trailed off.

"Hey, don't go feeling guilty. I had a great time up until then. I'll see you tomorrow?" Mona asked.

"Sure" Kara smiled, as Mona got out of the car.

"...I'm sorry...I didn't mean to go on, I was just worried about you" Jason said after Mona had left.

"Aw Jason, you almost sound like you care" She laughed, pinching his cheek.

"Shut up" Jason said, laughing lightly as he drove them back.


Later that night Jason had to go back up to the party to collect Alison and the rest of her friends, who had realised that Kara was missing and were getting worried.

"I think we should call the police, what if someone's hurt her?!" Emily insisted, as Jason walked over to them.

"Kara's fine, I took her and her friend back home a while ago" Jason told them.

"What? Why?" Aria asked.

"Some weirdo's were hitting on her friend and she decked them" Jason explained.

"Kara? You mean 5'4 Kara?" Spencer questioned, unconvinced.

"I saw it with my own eyes" Jason exclaimed.

"Why were you there anyway?" Alison asked.

"I heard a bang and thought someone might hurt" Jason admitted.

"Right, cause you're a hero in shining armour?" Alison snapped.

"Well I am your ride home, so if you want me to leave you here then..." Jason trailed off with a smirk.

"Ali, it's cold. Can we just go?" Hanna insisted.

"Alright" Alison sighed, about to open the door.

"Hold up, what's the magic word?" Jason asked, with a grin.

"...Please" Alison groaned, earning a smug smile from Jason.


Author's Notes: Spoiler Alert for 5x15!- Okay, so what just happened? Jason and Hanna's mum?! Still trying to process it. If I get to Season 5 with this story I might use Jason/Ashley to make Kara jealous, but like...O_O What do you guys think of it? I personally don't think it would be a very healthy relationship, and the age difference is a bit big, but then again they are both consenting adults. Anyways, hope you guys like this quick update:) Please leave a review!
