Author's note: Ok, I know it is horrible and too short, and mostly dialogue but it is a necessary chapter. Sorry for the terribly long wait! And thanks for reading!
“Who was THAT?” – Was the first thing I heard when I closed the door. Two of my best friends had come visit and they didn’t even say Hi to me.
“Hello to you too” – I answered sarcastically.
There were Leslie, Camille & Francesca, my three best friends, sitting comfortably on my couch drinking coffee.
“What are you doing here , girls? – I asked in a kind of surprised tone.
“Snooping around, obviously!” – They answered together with huge grins on their faces. Leslie had “guilty” written all over her.
“What are you all up to?” – I asked them, straight away, taking off my coat and smiling.
“Nothing, we just came to visit Le...” Cam trailed off when Fran cut her off.
“Les called us about you and “him”... – Francesca explained, pointing at the door. I went to the kitchen to get me a cup of coffee and went back, because I knew they wanted to keep chatting.
“So...” – Les started.
“What happened? Who is he? Where did you meet him? Tell us everything.” – Cami asked, in one breath. (She is the most romantic one of the group)
“Breath, Cam, or you’ll faint!” – I simply answered.
"Please, tell us, Ali” – Fran pleaded.
“Nothing happened. We just had coffee and talked...” I said.
“If nothing happened, why are you smiling so big?” – Leslie intervened.
"Alice, you did something and you’re not telling us!!” – Cam accused me, and exactly at that moment my phone rang. I had a new message.
The message read: “Thank you for a really great time. I was having a bad day and you were like a breath of fresh air! xxx Scott” – I read it and got my phone snatched from my hand by a nosey Leslie.
“Hey! I was reading that! – I exclaimed annoyed, but they were too busy reading all the messages I had gotten from him.
“OMG! Alice, he’s got it bad for you!” – Leslie happily screamed.
"Le, it’s not possible, we’ve only just met!” – Me, always the pessimist, answered.
“Alice, no guy would ever send a girl those messages unless he liked her!” – Fran exclaimed.
“I agree...but what are you gonna answer? – Cami started thinking.
“Give me that!” – Leslie started typing away on my phone.
I was fidgeting uncontrolably while she typed.
"Trust Leslie, she knows what she’s doing.” – Fran told me, smiling happily.
“All done!” – Leslie says while clapping a little.
“I got you a date on Friday, now you can tell me how much you love me!” – She exclaimed with a smug look on her face.
“Oh, Leslie, you’re my hero! I wouldn’t have known what to write!” – I said while hugging her.
“Now for the real problem.....what are you gonna wear?! – Fran asked while thinking out loud. (She was the fashionista of the group)
“First, tell us what happened!” – Cam asked eagerly.
"Well, we went to..."
After I told them about my afternoon with Scott, and then they started talking about possible outfits for my date on Friday. I just stayed silent, thinking about him.
