Star rolled about her bed, muttering and hugging her pillow tightly.
In a sudden burst of light, she was at school, in class. Instead of the usual separated desks, they were conjoined with seats of three. Star was in the middle, with Jackie on her left and Marco on the right. She could hear Marco attempting to talk to her about their last battle, obviously trying to impress Jackie, but Star noticed that the blonde's eyes were locked on her. Star desperately tried to keep herself looking at Marco, or anyone else in the room, anyone except her. Then Star felt a hand on her shoulder. She tensed and turned back to Jackie, plastering her usual grin on her face,"Yeah?"
Jackie smiled and put her finger to her lips, gesturing to Ms Skalmic snoozing at her desk."Tell Marco to get the class and follow me outside. Oh and to turn on their phone flashlights."
Star tilted her head slightly but nodded and watched Jackie quietly get up and sneak outside. Star then tapped Marco's shoulder,"Tell everyone to go outside. Oh and turn on their phone flashlights."
Marco nodded,"Why the flashlights?"
Star shrugged and got up, going outside and meeting Jackie by the door,"Whats going on exactly?"
Jackie giggled and put her hand on her hip,"Hardcore hide and seek."
Star grinned,"Ooo! Whats the hardcore part??"
Jackie watched the class flush out as the last person closed the door,"The hardcore part of this hide and seek game, is it will be.." She put her hand on a switch nearby and pulled it down, sending the whole school into black with nothing but the phone flashlights to let them see.
Star squeaked slightly and clung to Jackie's arm as the other girl simply smiled and giggled.
"Marco, Jefferson and...blonde jock dude. Your our first seekers. Turn to the lockers and count to 100. Everyone else, hide! No outside hiding!"Jackie grinned and watched as they turned around. After they do and the class runs off Jackie grabs Star's arm and tugs her over to the unusually small empty wooden storage wardrobe they have on the other side of the school.
Star blinked but followed Jackie's pull and managed to fit herself into the wardrobe, almost chest to chest with her. Star's face heat up, but it was rather dark, so Jackie couldn't see that,'Thankfully...' She could still see her eyes, and they were trained directly on her. Star gulped,'I can feel her breathing how close we are..' She felt something move between her legs and her breath hitched in her throat. She looked down briefly and stared back up at Jackie, who was now looking through the tiny hole in the door."J-Jackie...y-your knee..do y-you mind?"she muttered out as quietly as possible, squirming about.
Jackie turned back and blushed, pulling her knee back,"Sorry Star.."she whispered back, standing as straight and she could in the little closet, only managing to bring their faces closer together. There were only a few inches left between them now, and both their faces were beat red.
Star's heart went into overdrive, beating faster than ever before. She couldn't manage to say anything,'I just want to tell you. Right now....just let me tell you...'she breathed heavily and stared into Jackie's eyes.
Jackie smiled at her before closing the space between them, planting her lips firmly on Star's.
Star's eyes widened in surprise before her eyes fluttered shut and she kissed back, locking the two of them in a serious make out session.
The two finally broke apart for air and panted slightly. Jackie smiled and went in for another kiss, this time pulling Star closer.
Star rolled on her bed, gripping the pillow tightly and muttering slightly louder.
Suddenly Marco ripped open the doors to the wardrobe and his eyes shot open in surprise as Star and Jackie stumbled out and quickly pulled away from eachother. "S-Star...J-Jackie...?? Why!!!"He growled out before yelling,"I hate you Star!"
The words rang through her head as the world crashed into black around her, tears running down her face,"Im sorry Marco! Im so sorry!"She yelled into nothingness over and over as Marco's words still echoed around her.
Star gasped and sat up in bed, breathing heavily. A few tears stained her cheeks but she wiped them away and hugged her pillow to her chest as she tried to calm herself down.
Marco rushed into the room with a plastic sword in hand,"Star?? Are you alright? Did the monsters attack??"He looked around before lowering his hands, noticing how sad and distracted she looked. He sat down at the edge of her bed,"Hey...whats the matter?"
Star shook her head,"Nothing...just had a bad dream..Im fine."
"Want me to bring over my sleeping bag for the night?"Marco asked her.
" No, no. Im alright Marco, really."She smiled and gave Marco a hug.
Marco hugged her back,"Your sure your alright?"
Star smiled,"Yeah. Im sure."
Marco got up and walked over to the door,"Alright. Night Star."He went back to his room, closing the door behind him.
Star sighed"Night Marco." She then rolled over and went back to sleep, but thankfully, this time it was dreamless.
