SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31ST

That many times.

11:55pm


Twisted Dreams and I are on stage. We just finished an interview and now the world premiere of the “Meet Me at the Beach” music video is being shown.

While the video plays, they ask Damian and me to stay on stage for the countdown to midnight. 

A makeup artist runs powder across our faces and a producer says, “You’ll be on screen for the midnight kiss.”

“But, uh . . .” Damian says. 

“We don’t have time to discuss. And watch what you say. Your microphones will be live,” she tells us. “And, we’re back in three, two . . .”

The New Year’s countdown starts, the ball drops, and Damian looks into my eyes. If they flash back to us, we’ll probably look like we’re in love. 

“3! 2! 1! Happy New Year!” we yell as confetti and glitter drop from the ceiling. 

Damian grabs me around the waist, goes Ribbit into my ear, and then dips me dramatically and kisses me.

I come up hugging him and laughing. 

We get the okay to leave the stage and I immediately find Aiden. 

“I need a New Year’s countdown redo,” I say, slipping into his arms.

“You looked like you liked it,” Aiden says, referring to my kiss with Damian. 

“It was supposed to look that way. The dip was dramatic so people wouldn’t notice he didn’t fully kiss my lips. Kissing Damian is like you kissing your sister.”

Aiden cups my face with his hands. “Sounds like you need your lips fixed.”

A big grin forms on my face. “That's exactly what I need.”

People are still kissing and cheering. There are more shouts of Happy New Year. Confetti is still swirling through the air. But when Aiden’s face is close to mine and he slowly starts counting down from ten, it’s like the world disappears and there's only us. 

“9 . . . 8 . . . 7 . . . 6 . . . 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 2 . . . 1.”

The second our lips touch, mine are fixed.

“Happy New Year, Boots.”
