Dirk's P.O.V

It may be 3am, but I need to see Shan before it's too late. Making up my mind, I'm telling her how I feel about her.


Shan's P.O.V

I was asleep when I could have sworn I heard a tap at my window. Rolling over, I tried to ignore it, however, whoever was out there was determined. With a groan, I looked towards my clock as I got out of bed and opened my window with a yawn.

"Dirk?"

It has been a week since that little incident with Lexi and I've been doing my best to keep my distance. I've been hanging out with Alex and her friends these days, it felt good. Though, you know what doesn't feel good? My promise to myself that I'd stay away from Dirk other than our homework assignment.

"I need to talk to you." He spoke suddenly.

"Can it wait until tomorrow? You know….when it's not 3 in the morning?"

"No. It can't." He sounded determined so I gave in.

Finding a jacket, I threw it over my shoulders as I quietly went outside. Finding Dirk leaning against a tree, I sent him a glare. "This better be important. Otherwise-"

Before I knew it, he closed the distance and actually made lip contact. Wide eyed, I didn't know how to react. He literally was kissing me, and yet, I found myself returning it. However, how much I was enjoying it, reality hit.


"Are you crazy? You have a girlfriend and I-I…." I was blushing like a tomato. That kiss came out of nowhere.

"I am crazy. About you. I like you, I have since I first saw you in the school yard and I knew I wanted to get to know you. Back in the hallway with your locker, I wanted to talk to you more but Lexi appeared. That stage kiss felt real to me and a part of me wanted to do it again right then but-"

"Dirk I….." With a sigh, I grew sheepish. ""That kiss felt real to me too and I like you back but… We can't. You have a girlfriend who'll make my life a living nightmare, she's already out to get me."

"I've been trying to break up with her for weeks now, way before I knew you but…" He groaned. "She never gave me a chance to speak."

I couldn't help a eye roll. "You know what. It sounds like you can't make up your mind. Either that or your afraid to stand up for yourself. You know what I think we should just forget it. Dirk I think we should keep our distance from each other for a while."

"But it's you who I want to be with, not Lexi."

"You seem unsure about that. Because if you really want to be with me, you would have stand up for yourself by now. I don't think I can wait until you make a decision, and even if you already had made it, I don't think I can wait until you do something about it." I backed away with tears in my eyes.

"Do me a favor Dirk and grow up!"

Turning around, I wanted to walk away. Turning back around to face him, I hesitated. "Look. I know you're sweet, I just need time to think." With those words, I walked away.

Looking back for a a second, I continued walking as my mind and heart was trying to tell me something and I found myself singing softly to myself.


"If I could do it all over, baby, I'd do it different
Maybe I wouldn't be here, in this position

I found you then I lost you, looking back is torture
And it hurts to know I let you go, you live right around the corner

And I could've had it all, could've had it all

True love, I know I had it
True love was so hard to find
True love, if I could get it back
I'd never let it go this time

True love is an inspiration
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, if I could get it back
I'd never let it go
I'd never let it go this time

Feeling it all around me, wondering how I blew it
And I wanna know the secret of how they do it

No such thing as perfection
I'm still learning that lesson

To forgive is key to forgetting me
And I'm staring at my reflection

And I could've had it all, could've had it all

True love, I know I had it
True love was so hard to find
True love, if I could get it back
I'd never let it go this time

True love is an inspiration
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, if I could get it back
I'd never let it go
I'd never let it go this time

If I knew then what I do now I'd be with you tonight
If I knew then what I do now we'd be alright

I could've had it all, could've had it all, could've had it all, could've had it all

True love, I knew I had it
True love, was so hard to find (could've had it all)
True love, if I could get it back
I'd never let it go this time (I'd never let it go)

True love is an inspiration, ah
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, if I could get it back, yeah
If only I could get it back, I'd—

True love, I'd never let it go
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, I could've had it, could've had it, could've had it all

True love is an inspiration
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, yeah, if I could get it back
I'd never let it go this time
I'd never let it go this time

True love…"


By the time I've got home, Lillie was leaning about the wall. "..I think I'm in love with Dirk…" Was all I said before starting crying in her arms.
