Mom & Dad: “Where have you been?!” they asked in unison

Me: “Out.”

Mom: “Out where?!”

Me: “Just, out.”

Dad: “You better tell us this instant young lady.”

Me: “I was on a date!”

My mom broke out into a smile, but my dad on the other hand looked beyond furious.

Dad: “You missed dinner with your family for some boy?!”

Me: “Well when you put it that way it sounds bad.”

Dad was about to say something when mom interrupted him.

Mom: “It’s okay sweetie dinner wasn’t that good anyway. Did you have a nice time?”

Me: “Yeah mom it was great.Ummm...I'm gonna go to bed, I got school in the morning."

Mom: "Okay. Night honey."

My dad was still mad. I ran up the stairs and into my room. I went to my dresser and grabbed a tank top and shorts. I stripped my clothes and put on my pajamas. I walked over to my bed, pulled the blanket back and layed down. I started thinking about my day with Jack. I thought about how he kissed me and how much passion was in it. I fell asleep thinking about him.

I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock. My arm flailed around until it hit the clock. I sighed when it was finally quiet. Then I groaned because I had to get up. I got up and went to my closet. I grabbed a dark purple long sleeve shirt and my favorite skinny jeans. They were black and had gold gemstones on the butt and all of the pockets. I grabbed the outfit and went to my dresser to grab some booty shorts and a clean bra. Then I headed to the bathroom. I opened the door and walked in. I closed the door behind me and locked it. I went over to the shower and turned it on until it was the right temperature. I took off all of my clothes and got in. I let the water soothe all of my muscles for a while. Then I grabbed the soap and rubbed it all over my body, I grabbed a rag and washed myself. I then let the water wash off all the soap. I grabbed the shampoo and poured some on my hand and then lathered some on my hair. I scrubbed my scalp to get all the dirt out of it. After that I grabbed the conditioner and rubbed it on my head. I washed in out of my hair and got out. I grabbed a towel and wrapped it around my nude form. I dried off and wrapped the towel around my hair. I grabbed my shorts and slipped them on. Afterward I grabbed my bra and buckled it. I grabbed my shirt and slipped it over my head, then I grabbed hold of my pants and put one leg through each pant hole. I pulled them up over my thighs and to my waist. I buckled them and zipped them up. I grabbed my clothes off the floor and went to my room. I walked over to my clothes hamper and put my dirty clothes in it. I went to my bed and sat down. I reached over to grabbed my cell phone to see what time it was. It was 7:12, I had 18 minutes to brush my teeth, hair and eat breakfast. I jumped off of my bed and went to my vanity. I picked up my spray bottle to wet my hair more so I could scrunch it. I wet my hair and put down the spray bottle to grab my gel. I put some in my hand and rubbed it on my hair. I bent my head down to put some on the back of my hair. I stood up straight and shook my hair out. I ran my fingers through my hair so they wouldn't stick together. I wiped my hands on a towel and went to my dresser to grab some socks. I put them on and then walked over to my closet to grab a pair of shoes. I decided to where my black converse. I slipped them on and grabbed my backpack and cell phone. I opened my door and ran down stairs. I went into the kitchen and walked over to a cabinet. I grabbed a granola bar and ran out the door. I got to the bus stop just as it was about to pull away. I got on the bus and it was already full so I had to sit with someone I didn't know. I chose a seat in the back that only had one person sitting there. I sat next to this kid named David, we had been in school together since kindergarten and I got to admit I had a crush on him a couple of years ago, but I'm over it now. I sat down and looked up at him he was staring at me like I was crazy. I looked down at my hands. I felt his eyes boring into me. I looked up to see him staring at me again.

Me: "What?" I asked annoyed

David: "Nothing. I'm just wondering why your sitting with me."

Me: "If you couldn't tell the bus is full."

David: "Oh. Sorry."

Me: "It's okay."

He looked away. We were almost to school then. We pulled up to the school. The bus driver opened the doors and kids started filing out of the bus. I got off the bus and went up the stairs of the school. I walked in and went to my first period class. I ambled over to my seat in the back of the class and sat down. I got my Chemistry book out and put it on the table. I looked up and saw that Jack was sitting in his seat. I looked up and smiled at him he just looked away. 'What happened since last night?'

I questioned myself. The whole class I was thinking about what happened to him since yesterday. The bell rang and I got up.

Me: "What's wrong?"

Jack: "Nothing."

He walked away from me and out the door. I felt a prickling sensation in my eyes. 'Don't cry.

Don't cry.'

I chanted to myself. 'I can't believe I'm crying over JACK, JACK of all people.'

instantly I was furious. I followed him out to the hallway. When I walked out of the classroom I saw him talking to this girl named Ashley. I walked up to him and yanked on his arm. He turned around surprised.

Jack: "What?!"

Me: "What's wrong with you?!"

Jack: "I told you nothing is wrong with me. I just don't want to talk to you right now."


I was speechless. I didn't know what to say. I felt the prickling sensation again. I turned around and ran down the hall. I ran to an area in the school where there were no cameras and hid there. I cried and cried. Then I heard someone in the other corner. I turned to see who it was. It was David the kid I sat next to in the bus.

Me: "Oh, sorry I didn't see you here. I'll go."

David: "It's okay. You can stay if you want."

Me: "Thanks."

David: "You okay?"

Me: "Not really."

David: "You want to talk about it?"

Me: "Why are you being so nice to me? I'm always mean to you."

David: "Because I'm a nice person, and you seem like you need a friend."

Me: "Oh. Thanks, but I don't feel like talking right now."

David: "Okay. And your welcome."

I smiled at him and then looked at my hands.

Me: "Why are you down here?"

David: "I'm always down here."

Me: "Why though?"

David: "I have no friends so...why wouldn't I be down here?"

I didn't say anything I just stared at him.

Me: "I don't really have any friends either."
I admitted

David: "Yeah, I sort of noticed."

Me: "Yeah."

David: "So why were you crying?"

Me: "Ummm...It's complicated."

David: "You can tell me whenever your ready. Okay?"

Me: "Sure."

We were quiet for a while until I broke the silence.

Me: "Yesterday Jack took me to the lake and he kissed me, he said he liked me and today he won't even look at me." I said quickly

David: "It's going to be okay."

He came over to me out of nowhere and hugged me. At first I was shocked and didn't move. But then my arms wrapped around him. We stayed like that for a while until the bell rang for us to go to class he let go of me.

Me: "Thanks."

David: "No problem."

We walked out and into the hallway. I started walking to class until I noticed he was following me. I turned around.

Me: "Why are you following me?"

David: "We have the same class right now."

Me: "Oh."

We walked together to class. I saw Jack in the hallway, he looked at me and then at David. A hint of anger glinted in his eyes. I just looked away and walked into class. I went to my seat and sat down then the chair next to me moved. I didn't look up because I already knew who it was.


At that instant class started. I looked up to the front of the class. Then I felt someones hand on me.

Jack: "I'm sorry. I just...I don't know."

Me: "Get your hand off me."

Jack: "No, I'm sorry. Really I am."

Me: "And I really

don't care."

Jack: "Come on I'm sorry."

Me: "Don't talk to me anymore it's over."

With that said he didn't say anything else. The rest of class I didn't look at him. When the bell rang I packed up all my things and went over to David.

Me: "Hey."

David: "Oh, hey Jessica."

Me: "What class do you have next?"

David: "Spanish."

Me: "Really so do I."

David: "Yeah, I know. We have it together."

Me: "Oh, wow. I never noticed."

David: "Ha ha. Come on lets go."

Me: "Okay."

We walked out of the class and into the hallway. I saw Jack standing there and he was glaring at David. I just kept walking. Spanish was upstairs in room 206. When we got there I went to my seat. I sat in the middle of the class room. I sat down and noticed that David sat right next to me.

Me: "Not only didn't I know we had this class together but you also sit next to me?"

David: "Yeah. You never really paid attention to me."

Me: "Yeah, I guess."

After I said that the teacher came in.

Teacher: "Buenos Tardes clase." Translation:

good afternoon class'

Class: "Buenos Tardes." we all said in unison

Teacher: "Today you will partner up with new people. Turn to the person on your left and the people on the edges of the class partner up. Get to studying you have a big test tomorrow."

I turned to my left and smiled because it was David that was to my left.

Me: "Well what a coincidence."

David: "Yeah. Lets get to work."

We pulled out our paper that has the words we need to study on it.

David: "How do you say 'what is your name'?"

Me: "Como te llamas."

David: "Good. Now your turn."

Me: " do you say 'when is your birthday'?"

David: "Cuando es tu cumpleanos."

Me: "Good"

David: "Yeah. Okay my turn. how do you say 'homework'?"

Me: "Tarea. How do you say 'the poster'?"

David: "el cartel. Wow your good. I don't think there's any point in studying right now."

Me: "Okay. But were going to have to study sometime and I can't study by myself it's impossible for me."

David: "Okay we can study after school."

Me: "Where?"

David: "My house."

Me: "Uhhh...I don't know."

David: "Just as friends/study partners."

Me: "Sure."

David: "Great."

I smiled and he smiled back. The bell rang telling us that the school day was over. I packed up my things and met David outside the door. He packs up fast. We walked to the bus and got on.I went to the back of the bus and sat down. He sat next to me and I was surprised because in all the years I had known him he never sat next to anyone unless he had to. I smiled to myself knowing he was comfortable around me. I looked up and he was staring at me, I blushed and looked down. We passed my bus stop so we could get off at his stop. When we got off the bus I told David I had to call my mom and tell her where I was.

Me: "Hey mom I'm going to a friends house to study for a Spanish test."

Mom: "Okay. Just tell me who it is and you can go."

Me: "His name is David and he's my partner in Spanish."

Mom: "Okay honey. Bye love you."

Me: "Love you too."

I hung up the phone and walked over to David.

Me: "Ready?"

David: "Yeah. Come on."

I followed David down the street. He turned into a path that lead to a beautiful white house.

Me: "This is your house?"

David: "Yeah. You like it?"

Me: "Like it? I love it."

David: "Thanks."

He walked to the front door and opened it. He held it open for me to go in first. I walked into the house and gaped in amazement. There were two white leather couches, two side tables, one coffee table, and a huge flat screen t.v.

Me: "Wow. This house is amazing."

David: "My mom and dad own this huge corporation."

Me: "Why didn't you tell anyone? You could have so many friends right now."

David: "Yeah, I would have lots of friends but they wouldn't be real."

Me: "Yeah. So...what do you want to do."

David: "You hungry? You didn't eat lunch because you were crying in a corner."

Me: " I'm good for right now; but thanks. Where are your parents?"

David: "Work. They're always at work."

Me: "I'm sorry."

David: "It's alright. I'm not alone today."

I smiled.

Me: "Nope. So what do you do here?"

David: "Nothing really. Just do my homework then I watch t.v."

He walked to the kitchen and went to the refrigerator. He opened it and grabbed two water bottles. He tossed one to me.

Me: "Thanks."

David: "Welcome."

I walked into the living room and looked around again. I looked at the pictures on the wall and they looked expensive.

Me: "Where's your room?"

David: "Up stairs.I'll show you."

He started walking up the stairs and went to a white door. He opened it and walked in. The room was so clean. This had to be the cleanest room I have ever seen;other than his living room. It had a huge bed with blue sheets on it and a blue blanket. His walls had posters on them of celebrities and pictures of family.

Me: "This room is so cool."

He smiled and set his water down on a desk. He walked over to his bed and sat down.

David: "Hey can you hand me my backpack?"

Me: "Yeah."

I went over to the door and grabbed his backpack. I walked back over to him and gave it to him.

David: "Thanks."

Me: "No problem."

I sat on the bed next to him and got out my work.

David: "So what homework do you want to do first."

Me: "Geometry?"

David: "Sure."

We got our math books and started working. I didn't know how to do a problem.

Me: "David, do you know how to do number seven?"

David: "Yeah. You just have to cross multiply and then divide four by each side."

He started showing me how to work the problem. I looked up to thank him when I noticed how close he was. I didn't move and neither did he. I gotta tell you my crush started coming back, so when he leaned forward and kissed me I didn't hesitate to kiss him back. This was the sweetest kiss I ever had; I'd rate him 99 out of 10. It started out with out lips closed until I felt him tongue glide over my bottom lip. I opened my mouth and when our tongues touched it was an explosion of heat. Him tongue massaged mine as did mine to his. He brought me to his lap and set me on top of him. I wrapped my arms around his neck as his hands wrapped around my waist. We kissed that for a few minutes. Then he layed me on his bed and got on top of me. He started kissing me again. And I felt his hand slide down my body. He went down my chest to my stomach, he stopped there and his hands traced patterns on my waist and then his hand disappeared under my shirt. I shivered. His hands went to unbuckle my bra. That's when I stopped him.

Me: "David..."

David: "What?" he asked in a husky voice

Me: "Not yet."

David: "So you're saying maybe?" he asked with a huge grin on his face.

Me: "Yeah but now. It's too soon."

He kissed me again. And got off me.

Me: "I didn't know you were like that."

David: "You don't know lots of things."

Me: "Like what?"

David: "Like...I've had a crush on you since 4th grade."

Me: "That makes two of you."

David: "What?"

Me: "Nothing."

David: "What did you say?"

Me: "Nothing."

David: "If you tell me what you said I'll leave you alone."

Me: "I said that makes two of you."

I saw pain flash in his eyes and instantly regretted saying it becuase I knew he knew who I wasd talking about.

Me: "I'm sorry."

David: "It's good."

Me: "Well if it makes you feel better I like you more."

David: "That does make me feel better."

Me: "Well lets get back to work."

David: "Okay. Lets study Spanish."

Me: "Okay, how do you say 'I like you' in Spanish?"

David: "I te Gusta."

Me: "Good."

David: "Quieres ser mi novia?"

Me: "You want me to be your girlfriend?"

David: "Yeah."

Me: "Okay."

He smiled and that made me smile. He took my hand and kissed it. I blushed and my smile widened.

David: "Su hermosa." Translation:

your beautiful

Me: "Su guapo." Translation:

Your handsome

It was his turn to blush, and he did.


David: "Thanks."

I just smiled.

Me: "Lets get to work."

David: "Okaaay. What other homework do you have?"

Me: "Just chemistry."

David: "Okay, I don't have anymore homework so I'm going to go and get us some food."

Me: "Okay. Do you want me to come with you?"

David: "No, its good. Just do your homework."

Me: "Okay."

He walked over to the door and walked out.
I got out my chemistry homework. I only had a couple of problems so I finish those quick. Then I heard him coming up the stairs. He came through the door with two string cheeses, two granola bars,two of the little bags of Doritos, two sodas, two slices of pizza, and two fruit roll ups.

Me: "Whoa, I would think you were feeding the military." I joked

David: "I don't know what you like, so I brought every snack we have."

Me: "Well how thoughtful."

David: "I know. Aren't I charming?"

Me: "Very."

He walked over to the bed and set everything down. He ushered for me to grab what I wanted. I grabbed a string cheese, a bag of Doritos and a soda. He grabbed one of everything and pushed the rest toward me.

David: "The rest can be for later."

I nodded and opened my string cheese. I took a sliver of it. I looked up at him and he was taking bites of his string cheese. I smiled.

Me: "You know its called stringed

cheese for a reason."

David: "Yeah but then it takes too long to eat. So I just take bites."

Me: "True."

I took a bite of my string cheese.

David: "See? isn't it good to break the rules sometimes?"

Me: "Ha ha. Yeah, it is good to break the rules sometimes. Even if it is about food."

We laughed for a while. When we sobered up he asked

David: "You finish your homework?"

Me: "Yeah."

David: "You want to go somewhere?"

Me: "Sure where?"

David: "Park?"

Me: "Sure."

I packed up my things and put them in my bag.

David: "Done?"

Me: "Yeah lets go."

We walked down the stairs hand in hand. He opened the front door for me. He had to get his key off the counter. I waited on the porch while he went to go get it. He came back out and locked the door. He grabbed my hand again and we headed to the park. We made small talk on the way, mostly talking about family and school. When we got there we walked to the other side of the park to where a trail was. We walked down the trail and turned around when it started getting dark.I looked at my phone and it was only seven. 'Why is it dark this early?'

I thought. He walked me home and when we were by the path that lead up to my house he pulled me close to him and kissed me. We kissed for a while and then said goodnight. I walked up to my porch and turned around to wave at him he waved back. I walked into my house and went into the living room to watch t.v.

Me: "Mom,Dad?"

No answer. 'Mmmm...they must be out'

I thought. I shrugged and flopped down on the couch.
