Friday nights were usually when Gabriel went to the movies. And like usual, he was going by himself. Not that he cared. The few times he's been on dates girls have always wanted to make out or hold hands or something, and he wanted to actually watch the movie he paid to see. Was that so much?


Scifi was his favorite genre, but as there wasn't any like that out right now, he settled on buying a ticket to the newest action flick. He paid for his ticket and made his way to the concession stand to wait in the line to get himself popcorn and soda.

Elle squeezed Jeremy's hands as he let her order all the candy she wanted. They were out on their first date--her first date--and she couldn't have been more excited. They were seeing some action film Jeremy wanted to watch, and that was okay with Elle. She wouldn't have wanted to see some dumb romantic comedy, anyway. And he was buying all this stuff for her!

Sure, he hadn't shut up about the coming football game, and Elle was about to pull her hair out, but that was fine. She was on a date!

She'd picked out the prettiest dress for it, and Jeremy said she looked hot, so everything was going according to plan.

Gabriel's eyes narrowed as he realized who was standing in front of him, clinging to the arm of his favorite jock.


"If it isn't everyone's favorite vapid couple," He said in a sardonic tone. For some reason, he felt the need to let Elle know of his presence.

Elle swung her head around at that familiar, grating, awful and maybe slightly melodic voice. If only he didn't use it to say such stupid things and ruin perfectly good nights.

She glared at him hard, and Jeremy glanced behind his shoulder too, and then laughed. "He's just a jealous loser; ignore him, Elle," he said flippantly.

Elle bristled a little at the taunt; she didn't like it when other people said it, no matter how many times she'd thought Gabriel was a loser. And she also didn't like taking orders. "Excuse you," she said snidely to Gabriel, "we're on a date." She held onto Jeremy's hand tighter. "Obviously, you're here all alone. How's that working for you?"

"I'm not jealous," He snapped defensively. Though his stomach did twist a little weirdly as he watched them. He wasn't sure why. He didn't like Elle. He didn't want to go out on dates and buy her candy and snuggle close to her while watching movies.

He didn't.

And yet his stomach tightened a little as he saw her grasp Jeremy's hand even tighter. "It's working just fine for me, at least this way, no one will be distracting me from the movie. I'm sure it'll be hard to see anything with his tongue down your throat the whole time."

Elle almost gagged at the thought, and Jeremy turned around completely with her candy, laughing. "Don't kid yourself, dweeb," he guffawed, and wrapped an arm around Elle. "I see the way you look at her in the cafeteria. Shoo."

Elle flushed, a little startled. Wait--Gabriel looked at her like what in the cafeteria? But she recovered, and smiled nastily at Gabriel. It didn't matter, because she didn't care. She was with Jeremy. "Come on, Jeremy," she said. "If you want to distract me from the movie, that's okay." She looked at Gabriel with a pointed smile, and Jeremy pulled them away, looking back to Gabriel with a disgusting grin. He pointed at Elle discreetly and then made an obscene gesture, moving his fist and pressing his tongue against the inside of his cheek in tandem.

Gabriel's hand clenched around his wallet as he glared at them walking away. He wasn't sure why Jeremy's gesture enraged him so much, but it did. Seriously, the guy was crude and a waste of space. What did Elle see in him?

He wasn't even that good looking, really.

He sighed and turned back to the register to order his popcorn and soda. He paid the cashier and made his way to the theater. He could only hope they weren't seeing the same movie.

Elle smiled happily as they finally got away from Gabriel, enjoying the weight of Jeremy's arm around her.

"That guy is a weirdo," Jeremy was saying, and for once, Elle was listening. "Creepy-ass weirdo. You know he stalked his last girlfriend? I hope he doesn't like you now, Elle, because he's fucked up. I wouldn't be surprised if he followed us here."

"Really?" Elle said curiously, glancing back, even though she couldn't see him anymore. "How does he look at me?" She slipped the question in. Out of curiosity.

"I don't know, like a creep," Jeremy shrugged, obviously uninterested in the conversation. They entered the theater. "Come on, let's sit near the back so I can distract you," he said with a lecherous smile.

Elle smiled tightly and giggled, even though suddenly she wished she hadn't said that. Why had she even said it in the first place? She tried not to admit to herself it was to make Gabriel feel like crap. Or jealous or something.

Gabriel made his way into the theater, inwardly groaning to himself as he noticed the two lovebirds sitting together near the back. Wonderful.

He walked briskly past them before settling down to sit in the the middle of the theater. He wasn't jealous of them. He wasn't. If Elle wanted to let some greasy disgusting jock get his paws all over her, that was her problem.

Elle looked up as Gabriel passed them briskly, frowning as Jeremy held her her shoulders, rubbing her arms in a way she didn't really like. She watched as he sat somewhere in the middle, and felt the distinct wish that she was with him instead of Jeremy.

Gabriel wouldn't touch her all weird. He wouldn't touch her at all, because he didn't even like her. She'd rather be with Gabriel.

She settled back into Jeremy's arms anyway as the lights went down and the movie started, deciding to just watch it. She wasn't going to do anything that made her uncomfortable.

But it was only fifteen minutes in when Jeremy started kissing her neck.

Annoyed, she pushed her shoulder up and pushed him a little. "Stop," she whispered.

Jeremy heaved a big sigh, like she was the one being annoying. Elle bit her bottom lip hard, a little hurt and rejected and ashamed, and wrapped her arms around her midsection. That was mean. Then Jeremy leaned in and started to do it again.

She pushed him away a little harder, trying to contain her spark. Now she was getting kind of mad. "Stop," she said again.

"Oh c'mon," Jeremy hissed, turning her lips to her shoulder, "don't be a prude."

Elle flushed in indignation and tried to lurch away. "Stop," she repeated, her voice growing louder.

Gabriel couldn't resist the urge to look back at them occasionally. He justified the actions because he knew Jeremy could be a creep, and no one deserved to deal with that. It had nothing to do with the fact that he wished Elle was there with him instead.

Even if a small part of him did.

He was smart to do so though, because soon enough he noticed how Jeremy kept pushing himself on Elle, and how she definitely was not okay with the situation. Before he could even think he was up on his feet, stalking his way towards them. Sure, Jeremy was a football player, but Gabriel was at least as tall as him.

He tapped Jeremy on the shoulder, the rage on his face barely concealed. "I believe she told you to stop."

Jeremy snapped his head around towards Gabriel, and Elle took his distraction as an opportunity to push and pull out of his hard grasp, which had started to hurt. Her chest heaved and she looked up at Gabriel's wrathful expression; she had no idea why he even cared about Jeremy being a dick to her, but she was glad he did. Really glad. One, because it was starting to get really awful, and two, because Elle wouldn't have been able to zap hard enough to throw his big frame off without garnering attention, and especially without Jeremy noticing.

"Fuck off," Jeremy snapped at Gabriel. "This is none of your business."

"I'm sorry, but when you're forcing yourself on a woman in publc, it becomes everyone's business," Gabriel snapped in a very matter of fact sort of voice. "I was taught to respect a lady's wishes, no matter what, apparently, no one bothered to teach you such manners."

Which was a little ironic coming from the boy who had all but stalked his last girlfriend, but really, he had only followed her once or twice. She had made it sound alot worse. And besides, forcing yourself on a woman? Raping one (which is where Gabriel could have seen this situation going)? That was a million times worse.

"Now leave her alone, I won't ask nicely a second time."

Elle blinked up at Gabriel's angry visage, a bit enraptured by his firm, threatening tone. Even if the way he was saying it was so old-fashioned, it still made her stomach flip in an anxious sort of way she'd rather not identify.

Jeremy, much to her rage, thought it was funny. "Are you kidding?" he laughed. "Do you hear this guy, Elle?"

Her cheeks burned and she stood up; did he actually think what he'd been doing was okay? And furthermore, did he actually think she was going to agree with him? She reached for his jumbo coke, opened the lid, and poured all of it over the top of his head. "Lose my number, you jerk!" she snapped, and then stepped on his toes as she stomped past him, grabbing one of Gabriel's hands on the way and walking quick out of the dark theater.

Gabriel couldn't help but grin a little in victory as she dumped the soda over Jeremy's head. He told himself it was just because Jeremy was a jerk who couldn't respect women, and it was good to see him being taken down a peg for once.

But that didn't explain why his heart skipped a beat while Elle grabbed his hand, leading him outside of the theater and into the lobby.

Date: 2009-09-24 06:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Her heart was beating really loud, and she was still high off of adrenaline from telling off Jeremy, and Gabriel had helped her, and she was still holding his hand. She wasn't sure why that realization made her heart beat even faster, but it did. She stopped suddenly, impulsively, and spun around, throwing her arms around his neck with a shaky sigh.

Even if she didn't even like him, and he didn't like her, he deserved a thank you.

Which didn't explain why she was hugging him, but it did explain her breathy, "Thanks for that." She was just really grateful, she reasoned.

From: [identity profile]
He gave out a surprised gasp as she threw her arms around him. She was hugging him. He was so not used to a girl hugging him, other than his mother, and she was hardly a girl.

His heart sped up a little, and he tried to convince himself that it had to do with coming out of that situation, and not anything to do with the way Elle's body was pressed against his. How nice she felt. How his arms seemed to move against his will, returning the embrace. After all, it made sense that she would want support after such an ordeal. Most girls would, he told himself.

"Of course," He whispered softly. "I couldn't just let him take advantage of you. What kind of man would I be if I did that?"

Date: 2009-09-24 06:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
She sucked in a breath as his arms encircled her, his big hands warm over the fabric of her dress. Almost instinctively, she turned her nose into his soft, slightly scruffy neck, squeezing him closer, and realized with a rushing hot shudder at his words what a stupid idea it was to hug him.

For one crazy moment, she wanted him.

She pulled away with a start, blushing. "Not a man at all," she admitted, avoiding his eyes.

Date: 2009-09-24 06:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Without a second thought he brought his hand up to brush away some of her hair from her face, blushing and snatching his hand away once he realized what he was doing.

For a second there, it was almost like they actually liked one another. But that's not what this was about. He had saved her because it was the right thing to do. Nothing more, nothing less.

"Are you alright? He didn't hurt you, did he?"

Date: 2009-09-24 06:49 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Her breath stuttered at his feathering touch, and she snapped her eyes to his, the apples of her cheeks growing even pinker. Make that two crazy moments. "No, I'm okay," she said, feeling like she'd just run a mile, and breathing a bit like it too. She looked at her shoulder, bringing a hand up to squeeze it experimentally and winced. "He was just holding my shoulder too tight." But it wasn't bruised or anything. "And, you know, being a jackass."

Date: 2009-09-24 06:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Why did you go out with that scumbag?" He couldn't help but ask. He couldn't the urge to touch her shoulder, to make sure she was okay with his own hands. "You can do better than that, you know that, don't you?"

He was only being nice to her because she had just been attacked, or that's what he told himself anyways. It had nothing to do with the twisting in his stomach or the fluttering of his heart or the way he really sort of wanted to kiss her right now.

Date: 2009-09-24 07:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
She flushed all over at his hand and his words, and inched closer without thinking, sucking in long, shallow, evened breaths. She felt like she was burning, and it was weird and exciting and she didn't quite understand it.

She thought about before, about how she wished she was with Gabriel because he wouldn't touch her, but she... she really wanted him to touch her, actually.

"It seemed like a good idea at the time?" she answered weakly, unable to look away from his eyes, his face, and trying not to look at his lips as he spoke. They were so... sensual, and looked soft, and it was a ridiculous, embarrassing thought she didn't know why she was having.

Date: 2009-09-24 07:12 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"You should learn to be more careful, more selective with who you go out with," He warned her softly, taking a step closer to her now. "I might not be there to save you this time."

She looked so pretty, so soft. He'd be lying if he said the idea had never crossed his mind, what it would be like to kiss her but with the way they usually bickered, the thought had never lingered.

But they weren't bickering now. Before he could talk himself out of it he found himself cupping her chin, tilting her head up before leaning down to kiss her.

Date: 2009-09-24 07:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
She nodded in agreement at his advice, and felt a flash of heat as he cupped her chin and leaned in. She let out a soft, wanting hum and parted her lips, letting her lashes kiss her cheeks.

She gave in. She wanted his kiss so badly she could feel in down to her toes. Her entire being was vibrating with anticipation, and she lifted her hands to rest against his chest. She momentarily forgot how much she was supposed to dislike him.

"Is this some kind of dumb joke?" a voice cut through the moment, startling her. Her eyes snapped open and collided with Jeremy's. His hair was all wet and sticky, his shirt partially soaked through. "You're all over me all week, you turn out to be a fucking cocktease, and now you're slobbering all over the freak?"

Date: 2009-09-24 07:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Gabriel snapped out of his trance, the moment ruined now. He pulled away from Elle with a slight growl. He didn't know what he was more annoyed about, the way Jeremy was talking to Elle, or the fact that he had interrupted them.

Okay, so he probably shouldn't kiss someone he claimed to hate anyways, but oh well. He didn't have time to think about that.

Instead he flashed Jeremy a malicious smirk. "Did it ever occur to you that maybe she was using you to get my attention?" He sneered. He had no idea the validity of his statement, but it seemed like the best way to attack the other boy's ego.

Date: 2009-09-24 07:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
She glared at Jeremy, but then snapped her attention back to Gabriel, offended. "I wasn't trying to get your attention!" she protested. Even though maybe she had been. A little. But that was pathetic and stupid and she vowed never to do it again now that she knew what she was doing, so this time didn't count.

Jeremy sneered a smile. "See? She wanted me."

Elle paled. That wasn't true either, and her fists clenched. Think, Elle, think, she ordered herself. "I did not! You were just--I was just--shut up! I was using you to be popular!" Normal or whatever.
