"I like you," I typed on Facebook. "Really?!?" responded Mack, "Cuz I like you to Cheri!!!" It was only the fourth day of high school and I already was falling for Mack; the nerdy kid I used to dislike, hate, dispize even, but now I was falling fast for him. I hated myself for this; I hated feeling like a hammy down, for my best friend dated him two other times and I was scared to death that they would get back together. Everyone though they were a perfect pair. Mack became my text partner; he asked me to be his girlfriend over a text, he only talked to me over text, and he only kissed me over a text. That hurt a girl bad!! I couldn't have him in person, I could only have him over a meaningless piece of equipment, but yet his words kept my heart beating, hoping, and wanting.
One fateful afternoon I got the most amazing text of my life. "Will you go to homecoming with me?" Mack texted. I responded in two seconds flat with a big fat juicy yes. He would have to talk to me now. I decided maybe to break the ice we could go to the movies and soo it was our official date. When I walked inside the movie theater with him...it was akward. So much for breaking the ice! He wouldn't look at me and he mumbled; I could see he was just as nervous as me, but something in his eyes said he wasn't there; his thoughs were some where else. After we got done with our movie we had to akwardly wait outside for our parents, but the hot September breeze seemed to help the nerves a little. "OMG IT'S BADGER (a.k.a Mack)!!" shouted a voice from behind us. It was Ed. "OMG you didn't tell me you had a girlfriend!!" declared Ed. My face turned a rosy color and burned like the sand on a hot day. Thank goodness my mom's red mustang drove up so I waved bye and nearly sprinted away.
The night of homecoming was magical. I arrived at Mack's house in my little blue dress with Bacon, Jas, Skyler, and Chelsey. I was more shocked at the inside than the outside. His parents were loaded!! That night I was hoping to get my first kiss. Walking over to the homecoming dance was cold, but luckily he put his arms around my shoulder and that helped a ton. The dance was hopping with all the decorations and decent music. I wish I could say I danced with him all night, but I didn't. " Hey, do you remember the time in fifth grade when you threw a chair at me?" asked Lyle. I was getting annoyed by Chelseys date the whole dance and I felt bad. Mack kept looking at me with annoyance that he barely got to speak a word to me all night. I eventually fell into his arms around 11:12 so I guess my 11:11 with came true. After the dance we walked back to his place to watch Saturday Live, but I never got that kiss. That's how my troubles started.
