Fallin'

by Meghan

I keep on falliní
In
In love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes you make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin you darliní
Makes me so confused

Rory watched Tristan out of the corner of her eye. He was in the middle of a gaggle of girls who were drooling all over him. Merely a day ago she despised the site of him, but now, now she wanted to be one of the girls that he gave his attention to. It had all changed so quickly.

I keep on
Falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

She either wanted to strangle the life out of him, or drown him with her kisses. Never in her life had she mood swings like the ones he gave her. She had also never seen the mood swings he had out of any guy before. Things were never routine when she was around him.

Oh, oh, Iíve never felt this way
How do you give me so much pleasure?
And cause me so much pain
Just when I think
Iíve taken more than would a fool,
I start falliní back in love with you-ou

Rory loved every single banter session and verbal smack-down that they had, but she was never sure if he meant the mean things he said or not. He dissed her, told lies, and manipulated her vulnerable emotions. But she still went back to him.

I keep on
Falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Through everything, all the hurt and pain. She went back for more. To have her feelings bashed, to being manipulated. She still went back. Because he was the one hurting her. Never in her life had she felt so strongly for someone.... because they used her.

Oh baby
I, I, I, Iím falliní
I, I, I, Iím falliní
Fall
Fall
Fall
Fall

And then he kissed her. On that piano bench. He pressed his lips ever so gently to hers. And she responded. First by giving into every need and want that had been building since he first called her Mary. She responded to his touch, and his need. And then she cried.

I keep on
Falliní
In and out of love with you
Iíve never loved someone
The way that I love you

Tristan saw Rory sitting alone on the bench. His eyes caught hers and he began to extract himself from the throngs of beautiful women to make his way towards her. Rory stared, gaping mouth, at his beauty and confidence. The air of which he carried himself demanded that he be noticed.... and she did.

Iím falliní
In and out of love with you
Iíve never loved someone
The way that I love you

Then he called her Mary. Her face coiled into a pout and she bit back, insulting his brainless harem. Then they were silent. Evil glares passed from fiery eyes. Then laughter. Breaking through the tension.

Iím falliní
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

And then he apologized. Just like he had done before. Making sure she was all right. She despised him. She loved him. Things were never boring, always changing. She could only guess what the next day would bring. An insult or a kiss, but always something that would touch her heart. He had... he had her heart. Whether he wanted it or not, he had it.
