Beca Mitchell and Stacie Conrad have been dating since freshmen year of high school. They've obviously gone through a lot together in that time like Stacie hitting puberty and turning into a dam model that just happens to tower over her girlfriend. Beca had, well not grown but she did in the words of Stacie "Become one hot fireball." The two had been best friends since the fourth grade before Stacie asked Beca to be her girlfriend. Both of their families were very accepting and had a hunch this would happen considering how the two were together. It was now their freshmen year of college and they were coming up on five years together.
The Bellas all had a gut feeling that the two were dating but Beca and Stacie never confirmed nor denied anything. They didn't want to announce anything because they didn't know how people would react considering not everyone accepts this. So the two just acted like they always did which to others seemed very close for only friends. Beca and Stacie weren't stupid, they knew the Bellas had their assumptions and would soon figure it out. So one night when Beca and Stacie were in their room at the Bella's house, Beca came up with a plan.
"Babe?" Beca said quietly as she climbed into Stacie's bed.
Stacie turned over "What's up?"
Beca sat next to her girlfriend "I want to talk about something." She smirked.
Stacie sat up "About?"
"Us." Beca said taking Stacie's hand.
Stacie looked at Beca a bit wary and worried "What do you mean us?"
Beca chuckled "It's not like that. You know I wouldn't leave you in a million years." Beca said kissing the back is Stacie's hand "This is about the Bellas catching on."
"Oh yeah. There starting to put things together." Stacie nodded.
"Exactly, what if we have fun? You know mess with them a bit?" Beca said.
"How so?" Stacie tilted her head in thought.
"Well what if we go on "dates" with other people?" Beca suggested.
Stacie raised a brow "Excuse me?"
"Like ok, we pretend to leave with someone when in reality it's just one of our friends the Bellas don't know. All we'd be doing is hanging out with our friends. But they obviously won't know that." Beca explained.
"Okay but then what?" Stacie asked.
"Well I could start giving you the cold shoulder or something like that and then they would want to fix it and bam! We have a little fight cause a scene and storm off." Beca said.
Stacie nodded "So I'll be the one going on dates?"
"Yeah it'd be more believable. I mean people are already trying to get with you 24/7." Beca shrugged.
"They try to get with you too. You're just to oblivious to notice." Stacie joked.
"I don't care about that. I got you already." Beca smiled.
"So when do we start this?" Stacie asked.
"Tomorrow, text one of our friends that the Bellas don't know and explain to them what we're doing. Then you know get all glammed up." Beca said heading towards her bed.
"Sounds like a plan." Stacie said laying back down.
The very next morning Stacie texted one their friends explaining the plan and setting up the "date" for 7pm. Stacie told Beca who and where she was going and around what time she was returning. At six o'clock Stacie started getting ready.
"You and Stacie going out?" Amy asked Beca as she entered the kitchen where the rest of the Bellas were seated.
"No, she has a date." Beca answered taking a bite out of her pasta.
Everyone looked a bit surprised. Beca looked around at their faces.
"What?" She asked.
"Nothing, it's just she's never accepted any dates." CR said.
"Well she's never liked anyone that's asked her." Beca responded.
Thirty minutes later after everyone had ate and washed the dishes Stacie came walking down the stairs. Beca tried her best to not stare to hard but she couldn't help it. Not with how her girlfriend looked.
"Dam Stacie. Who you trying to impress?" CR said.
Stacie smiled "No one. I just like dressing up, you all know this."
"There's dressing up then there's this." Beca said.
"You like?" Stacie asked doing a twirl.
Beca nodded "It's looks good."
"Thanks! Now I'll be back soon. Have a good night people." Stacie said as headed out.
That's how it went over the course of the next couple days. Stacie would go on a date everyday while Beca would act like it wasn't bothering her. The Bellas would always look amongst themselves debating on what they should do.
"Anyone else find it odd how Beca is acting?" Chloe said.
"What do you mean?" Jessica asked.
"Well it's obvious that those two like each other but yet Stacie goes on dates daily while Beca acts like she doesn't care." Chloe pointed out.
"Maybe she really doesn't." Ashley said.
"It's Beca, the girl who never shows how she really is feeling." Chloe said.
"So what?" CR asked.
"We need to get them in a room and have them realize their feelings. Or make one of them realize and tell the other." Chloe answered "And I may have just the plan."
Chloe sat there and explained her plan and how they were going to execute it to perfection. After about twenty or so minutes the Bellas got to work.
Meanwhile Beca and Stacie were in their room listening to music.
"Hey, I think I should start acting distant and cold towards you." Beca said.
Stacie nodded "Ok, just remember-" Stacie got up and walked over to Beca narrowing her eyes and getting close to her face "Remember Mitchell, we still are dating. Be careful what you say and do." Stacie said slowly.
Beca smirked and got up "You remember Conrad, All is fair in love and war." Beca gave Stacie a quick peck on the lips "But of course I came up with the plan remember."
Beca walked towards the door and winked "Follow my lead." She said before opening the door "For the love of God Stacie, I don't care. It's your love life not mine." Beca said loudly in an aggravated tone.
Stacie shook her head and stormed over to the door "Well excuse me for asking a simple question." Stacie shouted back following Beca down the stairs.
All the Bellas who were in the kitchen after Chloe talked about her plan turned their focus towards the living room where the brunettes now stood.
"A simple question in which I don't care." Beca said.
"What's your problem huh? For the past week you've been giving me the cold shoulder and these indifferent short answers. It's like you couldn't give two shits about me or our friendship." Stacie said getting Beca's face.
Beca narrowed her eyes "I don't have a problem Conrad. I just don't care about all these dates you've been on. Especially when none of them result in anything. How many more dates are you going to on before one of them stick?"
Stacie raised her brows in a look of disbelief "Are you serious right now? Jesus Beca, you make it sound like I'm some hoe who has relationship problems. News flash it's college, I'm just having fun."
Beca chuckled and shook her head "Whatever dude I'm out. Have fun with your flavor of the day." Beca said before walking out the front door and slamming it behind her.
Stacie groaned and marched back upstairs slamming the bedroom door.
The Bellas meanwhile were all shocked and left with their jaws open.
"What did we just witness." Amy said.
"This is bad." CR said.
"We need to rush this plan." Chloe said.
An hour later when Beca returned all the Bellas were waiting for her.
"Uh sup guys?" Beca said as she walked through the door.
"Hey Beca, get dressed we're heading to a party on campus." Chloe said.
"Yeah, no." Beca said walking towards the stairs.
"Come on please? We just want a Bellas night out." Chloe pleaded.
Beca sighed and looked at the group who was ready to go "Fine give me like fifteen minutes."
"Oh Stacie said she'd meet us their. She went out." Chloe said.
"Of course she did." Beca said loudly keeping up the act.
Twenty minutes later Beca came down wearing a white hoodie with black ripped jeans and a pair of black and white high top converse. The group of girls walked about a block to the house where the party was at. Beca had texted one of her friends to meet up with her their. Once everyone was situated with some drinks, Beca and Stacie saw each other. Beca gave Stacie a wink and pointed towards her phone where she had sent Stacie a text.
Mi amor: I invited Kelsey and I told her my plan. She's going to be flirting with me and all touchy feely ok? Hopefully the girls notice this and try to do something. If not then come over to us and act mad or jealous.
Stacie quickly texted Beca back and Beca read the reply.
Mi corazón: Ok I'll get my green eyed monster prepared ;)
Beca gave Stacie one last head nod and went towards Kelsey telling her it was a go. About thirty minutes later Beca and Kelsey we're sitting on a couch with Kelsey all over Beca. She had her head on Beca's shoulder while she was fiddling with the strings of her hoodie. Stacie saw this and walked past the Bellas and marched towards Beca, the Bellas saw this and quickly ran behind the tall brunette.
"And action." Beca said causing Kelsey to giggle.
"Well look at this, if it isn't miss little Mitchell. And you want to give me crap about going on dates when you have some bimbo all over you." Stacie said.
Beca smirked "Is someone mad?"
The Bellas just arrived and Chloe got in the middle "Ok girls why don't we head back and talk this out like in private where we won't cause a scene."
"There's nothing to talk about Chlo." Beca shrugged.
"Beca cut the crap, you obviously have some issue or you wouldn't be acting like this." Stacie said.
"Stacie's right Beca, just please don't cause a scene." Chloe said.
"Fine whatever if it'll get you all off my back then lets go home and talk." Beca said sarcastically getting up before turning to her friend "Text you in a few?"
Kelsey simply nodded.
The girls all made their way back across campus towards the Bella house. Once inside they all went to the couch while Beca went to the kitchen and grabbed bottle of water.
"Ok you two need to seriously talk, it's obvious something is going on." Chloe said.
Beca took a sip and rested against the wall "Like I said Chlo, there's nothing to talk about."
"Then why are you acting childish?" Stacie said agitated.
"I'm not acting childish I just don't care about your dates." Beca shrugged.
"I'm your best friend I'd hope you care just a bit." Stacie said.
"Sorry to break it to you Stace but I don't care because I know their not going to result in anything." Beca answered.
"I don't think it's that, I think you're just jealous that I can actually get a date." Stacie smirked.
Beca raised her brows "Oh really? Just because I don't care about dates doesn't mean I can't get one."
"Right of course." Stacie nodded.
"Not everyone craves attention like you do Conrad alright. Some of us can live with out being the center of attention." Beca said.
"Alright girls lets relax and think about our words." Chloe said standing up.
Stacie scoffed "That's really what you think of me?"
"I don't know is it?" Beca shrugged.
"Wow if that's how you feel then I don't know what to say. After ten years of friendship if that's what you think then we really shouldn't be friends." Stacie said.
Beca chuckled before walking towards the door "So be it." She walked out the door and met up with Kelsey.
Stacie looked down sadly before excusing herself and locking her room.
The Bellas all looked at each other in complete shock.
Stacie changed as she got a text from Beca
Mi amor: You think they bought it?
Mi Corazón: Oh yeah most definitely.
Mi amor: Perfect, I'm staying at Kelseys so in like 20 minutes come over and we'll make them worry more with the two of us being out ;)
Twenty minutes later Stacie changed into a hoodie and some sweats before telling the Bellas she'd be back. She made it to Kelsey's and gave Beca a kiss.
"Attention craver and center of attention? Really?" Stacie asked.
Beca chuckled "Yeah I came up with it on the spot. Didn't really know what else to say so I went with what people said to you in high school."
Stacie slapped Beca upside the head "You're lucky I love you."
The two spent the night at Kelsey's since she had an off campus apartment by herself. They woke up early and made their way back to the Bella house hand in hand.
"Their going to be so mad." Stacie said as they approached the steps.
"It's worth it." Beca said as she opened the front door.
They were met by six eyes staring daggers at them. When an angry and frantic Chloe came up.
"Where the hell have you two been? I know you two have cellphones that work, would it kill you two to reply?" Chloe said.
"And why are you two holding hands and cool?" CR asked crossing her arms.
Stacie and Beca looked at the girls before looking at one another bursting into laughter.
"Oh man this was good." Beca said.
"What was?" Chloe asked.
"This little joke we played on you guys." Stacie answered.
"What joke?" Amy asked.
"The whole Stacie going on dates and me acting the way I did." Beca said walking to the love seat with Stacie following her.
The Bellas soon joined them.
"Explain." Chloe demanded.
Stacie and Beca told them all about Beca's plan and how everything went down. They finished by telling them where they were last night.
"So why do this exactly?" Jessica asked.
"Because we knew you guys were putting everything together and would figure out that we were actually dating, so we decided to have some fun." Beca said.
"Hold up two are dating?" Chloe asked.
"Yup, since ninth grade to be exact." Beca answered with a smile.
"Unbelievable, I'm happy for you two but kind mad that you went through all that just as a joke." Chloe said.
"We just wanted to have some fun." Beca smirked.
