~Chapter 7~
The next few days were hell. Jeff still wanted to talk but I didn't feel like talking to him. He was still hanging out with Megan a lot and I was with Shane a lot. Shane was shocked at my reaction to the break up.

"Nicole, I need to tell you something. But you have to promise not to blow up at me."
"I told Jeff that we were together."

I looked at him.

" I wanted you to myself. I didn't think you were serious about him. I mean you always bitched about him and I just thought that maybe if he was out of the picture then I could be with you."

I didn't know what to say, I knew he had told Jeff, but I was shocked that he actually admitted it to me.

"I'm sorry, Nikki. But I know you really love him, and I don't want to hurt you by messing with you guys or him."
"It's too late now. He already told me it was a mistake. Plus he has Meg."

I looked away from him.

" I'll leave you alone."

Shane walked out of the locker room. I walked out of the locker room and walked down the hall. I heard Jeff and Meg talking.

"So how far are you?" Jeff asked
" About a month."
" Are you going to keep it?"
"I don't know."

My mind started screaming. Megan was pregnant! I turned to walk away but when I turned I ran into a rack of chairs and they spilled out on the floor. Jeff and Meg ran to the comotion. I looked up from the floor. Meg's eyes had fear in them.

"How long have you been there?" Jeff asked
"Long enough."

I jumped up and started to walk away.

"Nicole, wait" Jeff yelled

I started running ignoring his calls. I ran out of arena and the cold air hit my face. I didn't know if it was Jeff's but it was weird how she's almost a month and thats how long they've been hanging out. A few minutes later Jeff came up behind me. He placed his hand on my shoulder. I jumped and turned around.

"What?" I asked real snobby
"Why won't you talk to me?"
"Why should I?"
"Because I still want to be friends. You said we would still be friends."
"I only said that to get you off my back."
"What do you mean by that?"
"It was a mistake, you admitted it. Just leave me alone and go back to your girlfriend."
"Meg's not my girlfriend. Her and Adam are back together."
"Oh, so that's the only reason you aren't with her."
"NO, there's a lot of reasons I'm not with her. One being that She's like my sister!"
"And you got her pregnant? Damn I thought incest was illegal."
"You heard that?"

I looked at him and rolled my eyes.

"Wait you think it's mine?"

I shrugged my shoulders.

"I can't believe you would think that."
"Why does it matter what I think?"
"Because I still love you."

I just looked at him.

"You still think it's mine don't you?"
"I don't know. I don't believe a word out of your mouth anymore."

Jeff threw his hands up and the air.

"Fuck it."

He walked away and walked back into the arena. I believed him about it not being his but I didn't believe anything else. How can he love me? I was a mistake. He gave up on us just because of all the bad things. He did'nt even think of the all the good times. I started to cry as I walked back to the locker room.

~Chapter 8~
I went back home for the weekend. When I returned Adam was back, and him and Meg were acting like they never fought. I wasn't talking to Shane, and neither was Jeff. Jeff had finally given up on trying to be my friend after that night. I guess he's dating some girl, but no one knows anything about her, not even Matt. All Jeff tells people is that 'It's not serious so it's no big deal.' I found it amuzing how fast he had moved on.

~ 2 weeks later~
I walked through the halls of the Cole Center. Everything was pretty much back to normal before me and Jeff, I was back into my 'Fuck everyone' phase, and alienated myself from everyone, but Meg. Jeff on the other hand, started coming back around, he started to say hi to me and ask how I was doing. Basically we made small talk. I did miss him, but I would never tell him. I walked past the mens locker room and heard some guys talking. It sounded like Adam and Jeff, being my nosey self, I stopped to listen.

" I kinda regret ending it with her." Jeff said
"What do you mean by kinda?"
" I love her, and I wanted to be with her. But we were just getting so jealous and listening to everyone else. I didn't want that."
"Oh, so you don't want to be with her?"
"I didn't say that. I mean I was being a stupid bastard. She wasn't a mistake, I just didn't  think she could care about me as much as I did for her."
"Yea, you were being a bastard.You need tot alk to her."
"Yea I know, I'll try to later tonight."

I was so shocked about the conversation that I didn't even notice the sound of them walking towards the door, when all of a sudden the door flung open and knocked me to the ground.

"What the hell?" Jeff and Adam said in unison

They looked down to see me holding my head.

" Oh my god, Nicole are you ok?"

Jeff knelt down and looked at my face.

" You got a pretty nice cut there."
" Don't you ever learn what  ease dropping can do to you?" He said laughing

I couldn't help but laugh. He helped me up to my feet.

"So I take it your not mad at me anymore?"

I shook my head.

"I  got to go find Meg," Adam said smiling.

Jeff smiled at me.

" Come on lets go get that cut taken care of."

I followed Jeff to the bathroom. He cleaned up my cut (lucky me it was up by my hairline so my bangs covered it up.)

"Nicole, I'm sorry for the way I acted and for ending it with you. I really do regret it."
"I regret it too."
"Do you still love me?"
"You wouldn't want to give me a second chance now would you?"
" Maybe."
"Maybe?" He asked raising his eyebrow

I leaned in and kissed him. He pulled away.

"I take it that's a yes?"

We smiled and kissed again.

~Chapter 9~
Me and Jeff walked out into the halls holding hands and smiling.  Meg and Adam saw us and we walked over to them.

" So I take it you guys made up?" Meg asked smiling.
"Yes" Jeff said smiling back
" Finally!" Adam said
"And this time we're not going to let anyone tear us apart." Jeff said putting his arm around me.

~ 3 months later~
~At Our house~
I was sitting in the bedroom on the bed when Jeff walked in.

"Hey, did you have fun at Shan's?"

He shook his head. And pulled me close to him.

" But I missed you." He said kissing me
" I missed you too."

He started kissing down my neck. And ran his hands threw my hair. He laid me down on the bed and took off my shirt and was kissing my chest. He then laid over me and removed the rest of my clothing and his. And we made love. Afterwards We laid under the covers Jeff had me in his arms and kissed my cheek. He then lifted his hand for a few seconds and came back with a small box with a ring in it and held it in front of my face.

"Will you marry me?" He asked
"Yes, I will"

Jeff placed the ring on my finger and kissed me again.

~A year later~
Adam and Meg got married 4 months ago, and had a baby boy named Alexander Scott. Me and Jeff just got married a few months ago and we are the happiest we could ever be.
