"Well, I always thought, ya know, since you and Star hang around so much, that you might've been an item."
Marco sputtered a tad bit and almost lost balance at her bluntness, but managed to reign himself in enough to respond. "Nah, we're just friends. I don't think I could ever see Star that way. At least, not after the arm incident."
"Long story. Anyways, no, I'm not going out with anybody."
"Well then, I guess I don't have to feel bad for this."
Marco was abruptly cut off as Jackie's lips brushed against his, the sensation stopping all thought processes as he instinctively pushed back. Jackie pulled away, looking at him with an amused grin at his hot cheeks.
"Never thought that the safe kid would ask me on a date, but you surprised me, Marco. New clothes, new moves, Star up there in the booth setting music- you really went all-out, huh?"
"W-W-Well I mean uh, I-it's just, I mean yeah, the clothes a-and-"
Jackie giggled and pecked him on the cheek, silencing him as another wave of blush washed across his face. "It's sweet. Not many guys do all of this just for a casual skate, ya know?"
Marco, after a brief second of getting his breathing back under control, responded. "Well, I just thought that I should try my best, yeah? I mean, you could have any guy in the school if you wanted to, so I couldn't just act nonchalant about it."
Jackie pressed herself into him once again as the guitar music floated around them. "I don't need some big elaborate setup to have a good time, Marco. I'm flattered that you went so far for this, though. How long did you practice those moves for?"
