If there’s a prize for rotten judgement

I guess I’ve already won that

No man is worth the aggravation

That’s ancient history, been there, done that!

Who’d'ya think you’re kiddin’

He’s the Earth and heaven to you

Try to keep it hidden

Honey, we can see right through you

Ya can’t conceal it

We know how ya feel and

Who you’re thinking of

Spot had had relationships in the past. Let’s just say, none of them turned out right. So when his friends started trying to say he was in love with his friend Race, he shrugged it off. “I’m not in love with him. He’s an asshole. Besides, he’s not worth it. I’ve been there and I’m not going back.”

Jack slapped him upside the head and received a glare in return. “Wow. You’re even more oblivious than I thought. Look, even I can see that he’s everything to you. If I can see it, everyone can. I’d be surprised if even Race didn’t know. You can try to hide it but we all know so there’s no point.”

It’s too cliche

I won’t say I’m in love

I thought my heart had learned its lesson

It feels so good when you start out

My head is screaming get a grip

Unless you’re dying to cry your heart out

Spot had been thinking about what Jack said for several months to come. Every time someone would make a comment, he’d blow it off and say the same thing he always did: “Love’s not my thing.” But the truth is, something had changed. He thought his heart would have learned by now. But no. This has to feel so good in the beginning that every time, he can’t help but hope it could be different and it never is. His brain is screaming for his heart to get a grip so it won’t get hurt but of course, it won’t listen.

You keep on denying

Who you are and how you’re feeling

Baby, we’re not buying

Hon, we saw ya hit the ceiling

Face it like a grown-up

When ya gonna own up

That ya got, got, got it bad

No chance, now way

I won’t say it, no, no

Give up, give in

Check the grin you’re in love

His friends wouldn’t give up. One time they were all hanging out and Race winked at Spot, causing him to grin like an idiot and all of his friends to start teasing him. Sure in that moment, he laughed it off and threatened to beat them if they didn’t stop. But at this point he could tell he felt something. He still knew for sure, he’d never ever admit it. He’d rather deal with the teasing for the rest of his life than admit he was in love again.

This scene won’t play,

I won’t say I’m in love

You’re doin flips read our lips

You’re in love

You’re way off base

I won’t say it

Get off my case

I won’t say it

At this point, Spot was getting really irritated with everyone, or at least that’s how it seemed. In reality, he was annoyed with himself. But he still couldn’t do it. Sure, every time Race smiled at him or winked or even looked in his direction, he felt his stomach do flips. He had to really focus to not sound like a lovesick idiot when he talked to him, which was not an easy task. Most of his friends had given up trying to get him to accept it, but the stubborn few, cough, Jack and Romeo, were persistent. 

Don’t be proud

It’s O.K. you’re in love

At least out loud,

I won’t say I’m in love

As one last-ditch effort to get them together, Jack and Romeo threw a party and insisted on a game of truth or dare. It was going as it always did, until Romeo called out Spot. 

“Spotty Boy. Truth or Dare.”

Uh oh. He knew that grin. If Spot chose truth, he’d have to confess something that would force him to reveal. If he chose dare, no doubt he’d have to kiss Race. If he backed out? No. Not an option. Spot Conlon never backed down. If he did, that could reveal things. “Dare.” At least he’d get a kiss out of it.

“I dare you to go into the closet with Race. For 15 minutes.” 

Race just started laughing and stood up, holding a hand out to Spot. Of course he’d find this amusing. He doesn’t know the torture this will be for Spot. Nevertheless, they went into the closet and Romeo locked the door once they were inside.

“So, what are we supposed to do in here?”

“Well, ‘Spotty Boy’, clearly they had a plan. Do you know what it was?” 

“Nope.” Yes. “I never know what their intentions are.” Lie.

“Well, we have several options: We could talk and be lame. Or we could make these 15 minutes fun and make out?” Spot stared up at him, trying not to seem panicked. 

“What?”

“Oh come on. I know you’ve made out with people. You and Todd were all over each other.”

“So?”

“So, why not? Let’s make this fun because they’re not gonna let us out.”

Spot takes a deep breath before nodding. “Alright then.”

Race nods and leans in, placing his hands on either side of Spot’s face before kissing him deeply. Spot’s breath catches in his throat as he returns the kiss. One thing was for sure as their lips moved in sync: Spot couldn’t deny his feelings anymore. He still wouldn’t admit it out loud but he had to admit it to himself. Spot Conlon was in love with Racetrack Higgins.

Harry, laughing with the others, was glad to have an innocent reason to look at Ginny; he had received several more Bludgers injuries during practice because he had not been keeping his eyes on the snitch.
