"Pretty song." Andros commented.
"Yeah. Espically for, ah, a Country singer." Ashley grimaced. Country was okay, but not her style. Andros, on the other hand, seemed to like Country. Why was the only question.
"Would you like to dance?" he offered shyly.
Ashley nodded. "I'd love to." She walked over to him and wrapped her arms around his neck and they began to sway silently to the music.
_Do I dare tell Ashley about my, ah, feelings for her?_ Andros thought as Ashley's arms tightened around his neck. "Ash..Can I talk with you about something?" Andros asked softly.
"Since I've met you...There's been something between us...More then friendship, I mean." Andros said, his gaze on the floor.
Ashley smiled at Andros' shyness. "I've felt the same way."
"You have?" he asked looking at her in surprise.
"Yeah...Since we first met, I've felt an attraction for you..."
"Me too." Andros said.
_For once I'm glad Cassie is boy crazy._ Ashley thought as she laid her head against Andros' chest. _I am so glad she talked Carlos and T.J. into going to the mall for the night._
Taking a deep breath, Andros murmured, "Can I kiss you?"
"What did you say?" Ashley asked looking up at him.
"Can I kiss you?" he repeated louder.
Ashley nodded and smiled at him.
Andros leaned down and their mouths were pressed together in a passionate kiss.
