Introduction: This is the series sequel to the series What I Wanted. This chapter is !NON-EROTIC!, I repeat !NON-EROTIC! and will contain sex between characters under the age of 18 in later chapters. Don't like? Don't read. !NON-EROTIC! !NON-EROTIC!
I jumped and my hand moved as well. I started watching the movie again when Troy sounded like he seemingly stifled a cough. I looked at him, my mind becoming distracted from the film. That's when I noticed where my hand was.
I instantly withdrew my hand from his lap and returned my gaze back to the screen. I tried my best to avoid thinking of what I did but it wasn't easy with Troy sitting right beside me. I was scared as hell of what his reaction might be, so when he said my name, that's all it took for me to shoot up from my seat. I hurriedly squeezed past the people, muttering apologies as I made my way to the stairs. Once there, I quickly walked down them and out the exit.
Once I relaxed, I dead panned. Of course I'd barge out of the movie without knowing what I was going to do next. I considered, only for a second, about going back in, but I'd just look even more stupid. I looked around and caught sight of the arcade, so I opted to go there.

10 Minutes Later
I was playing a shooting game where I had to kill zombies. Yes, zombies. Way to get my mind off of what happened, huh? But it's not like it'd matter because Troy seemingly appeared out of nowhere.
"Why are you in here?" He asked. "I thought you went to the restroom, so I came out to look for you after you didn't come back."
"It was too scary for me." I lied, my hands shaking, showing noticeably on the gun I was holding.
"Tony, you okay?"
"Yeah." I lied again. "Why?"
"You're shaking." He put one hand on my shoulder and I dropped the gun from my immense nervousness. "Dude, what's wro-"
I turned to leave but he grabbed my arm and faced me toward him. I couldn't even form words as he stared at me.
"Tony?" I heard again. "You sure you're okay?" He asked as he picked up the gun and placed it back into the holster.
I could not understand why he was affecting me so much. I've barely met him and I was seemingly getting attached already.
"Damn, Tony. What's wrong?" He laughed. "You cold or something?"
I regarded the fact that I was still shaking, and I tried forcing myself to stop. "Uhm, yeah, kinda." I lied. "...But, like I said, the movie was scary."
"I guess that means you don't wanna go back in then?" He asked.
I shook my head. "No sorry. You should go back in though. You've already missed enough."
He reached into his pocket and pulled out his phone. "No, I'm fine. I'm not gonna just leave you alone, besides, there's still like thirty five minutes left and I'm not gonna walk in that crowded room and look for my spot again."
"Okay." Was all I said. I stuffed my hands in my pockets and started to walk around the arcade.
"So.." He mumbled from beside me. "What-"
"Wanna play air hockey?" I interjected, hoping that he wouldn't bring up what happened.
He raised an eyebrow. "Uh.. Yeah, sure."
I walked over to the table and inserted two coins. It immediately started blowing out air and the puck fell from the goal where I stood. I picked it up and placed it on the table. "Ready?"
He smirked. "I should be asking you that. I'm about to beat you."
My mood shifted to competitiveness and I retorted. "Hah, we'll see. I'm pretty good myself." I swiped at the puck and he instantly hit it back.
We continued to hit it back and forth before he eventually scored.
He threw his arms up right away and cheered. "Yeah! This is just how the rest of the game will go, so maybe you should just give up." He laughed.
"Very funny." I said sarcastically as I retrieved the puck. "It's barely one." I hit the puck again.
• • • • • • • • • • •
All he needed was one more to win.
"This is it right here. I'll get it in this time." He announced when he set the puck up.
He hit the puck, sending it hurtling toward me. I swiped at it but missed miserably. I watched as it went into the goal.
"Fuck yeah!" He yelled once more. "What'd I tell you?" He asked rhetorically.
I rolled my eyes but smiled. "Yeah, yeah. Rub it in."
He laughed. "I sure will! Haha, you only scored four." He brought his face right in front of mine and stuck his tongue out. "Too good for you."
I backed away and blushed at his action. He backed away too, oblivious to my reaction. "I'll admit it; You beat me fair and square." I said.
His smile widened. "Props to you for not being a sore loser."
"Well," I said with a smug smile. "I am an awesome person."
"You aren't wrong about that." He laughed as he started walking around.
I tried stopping myself from blushing, cursing myself that I reacted at that little complement. I followed after him and started walking beside him.
"Do you wanna lose at another game or something?" He asked while smirking.
I narrowed my eyes at him. "Hmph. No, I'm actually fine."
He stopped walking, prompting me to stop along with him. "Can I ask you something?"
"Sure." I nodded, but immediately regretted my answer as he started speaking.
"Back in the movie, when you touched me-"
"Troy!" Someone called out.
I looked toward the source of the voice, noticing all of Daniel and his friends walking to us. Thankfully they interrupted him, but it wasn't early enough for him to keep the topic from coming out of his mouth.
"Hey, what are y'all doing out? Did the movie finish already, Marc?" Troy asked his brother.
"Yup, sure did. You guys didn't miss much." He informed us. "Why did you two even leave?"
"Restroom." We said in synch while I avoided looking at him. (Not that there was anything to hide.)
"Oh, well can we play in the arcade before we go?" Marc asked and when Troy placed his hands on his hips, he added, "Please?"
"Go ahead." He replied and they all took off in different directions.
My heart was beating again now that I was left alone with Troy. And it beat even faster when he looked at me.
Trying to make a retreat I said, "I think I'll go join them." But Troy grabbed my arm and turned me toward him. He gripped it and looked directly at me. Dazed by his actions, I did nothing but look back at him.
After about five seconds (that seemed like forever) he said, "It's cool, dude."
I know, I know.. It's super short.... It's just been FOREVER, and I wanted to post this to let you guys know I'm still here!! (If you guys were wondering. Probably not, huh?) Anyways, still no sex. Hey, believe me, I wanna get to that part too lol. But my question for this chapter: "What did Troy mean?!"
