The Story of Us: Amanda and Caleb

Novel By: DaynaMayna

The Story of Us
I looked out the window of my Corpus Christi beach house, and observed the family moving in next door. They looked like the typical perfect American family: A Father, Mother, Son, and Daughter.
The family lugged boxes out of the U-Haul truck, and into the house.
I had always wondered when someone was going to finally move in next door. I mean the house has been vacant for almost 5 years. It was the biggest house on the street, more than twice the size of mine.
“Amanda.” My mom said stepping into my room. “What’s up?” I asked turning away from the window and facing her.
“I’m sure you noticed the new Nabors.” My mother started. I quickly nodded my head. “Well, your father and I decided to invite them over for dinner. They have 2 kids, a daughter who’s in the 6th grade like you, and a son who’s in the 8th.” My mother finished.
“So…this means…?” I asked awkwardly. “Just dress nice and be downstairs in the dining room at 5:30.” My mother replied with a smile.
I walked down the stairs 5:30 sharp, running my fingers through my blonde hair, and tugging on my pink lace shirt. As soon as I stepped into the dining room, (which was usually only use for Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) I was greeted by the new family.
“Amanda this is the Saunders’s” my father said, then gesturing to each one of the individually. “Paul, Nancy, Caleb, and Sky.” They all gave me a little wave.
“Um..I’m Amanda.” I replied pulling a smile.
As the parents started making random small talk about school, my eyes fell on Sky. She was a good few inches taller than me. She was flat out tall for her age, but she held her height gracefully. She had long black hair, and stunning blue eyes. Overall, Sky was pretty intimidating.
Then I looked over to her brother, Caleb. It took all the power in my body to keep my mouth from falling open, I couldn’t help but stare. He was tall, just like his sister. He also had the same blue eyes, and black hair. But that’s when the resemblance stopped. Caleb…was just flat out…Attractive!
While I was checking out his eyes for the 100th time in 5 minutes, Caleb caught me staring. I turned away quickly as I felt color rush to my cheeks.
“Let’s eat.” My father boomed, rubbing his hands together.
Soon enough me and Sky clicked, and instantly became best friends.
The next few years were filled with sleepovers ad weekend trips to six flags with Sky.
But also me gawking at Caleb, admiring how cute he is, and laughing at all his corning jokes, Ignoring his countless remarks about all the stupid things me and Sky likes, like Hannah Montana, and The Jones Brothers.
All these years, I’ve been trying to get Caleb to stop seeing me as his kid sisters best friend.
I was freshmen and high school now and pretty grown since the say we first meet.
I’m in love with my best friend’s brother, and I’m determined to get him to love me too.

The Story Of Us


I jumped in my seat, as Caleb violently honked his car horn, swearing under his breath, as a car swerved into his parking spot.

"Fucking seniors, thinking they own the whole damn school parking lot." Caleb muttered trying to find a new spot.

"You have some serious road rage, Caleb." I half smiled as we finally found a spot. His eyes shot me daggers, while he pulled the keys out of the ignition, and jammed them into his pocket.

"He's also not a morning person." Sky smirked. "Shut the fuck up!" Caleb barked making us both jump. Caleb slammed the car door, and stormed into the school.

"What his problem?" I mumbled to Sky as we headed to the cafeteria.

"Caleb and Hallie got into some huge argument over the phone last night. I have no clue what it was about, but it kept me up all night." Sky sighed shrugging her shoulders.

The day went by in a flash, a before I knew it, I was headed towards my last period.

I sauntered into my class, to find a rose on my desk. I smelled the rose, taking in its sweet scent, and then tugged on the note, causing it to fall to the ground.

As I picked it up, and read the words displayed on it, I felt my eyes widen.

"Meet me on the fifty yard line on the football field right after school. -Max"

"Ms.Miller will you please take you seat, I am trying to start class." My teacher sneered, causing the entire class to stare at me, and a blush to rise on my cheeks, as I shuffled into my seat.

The whole lesson was a blur. The only thing I could focus on was the little red rose, settled on the edge of my desk.

As soon as the last bell rang, I sprang out of my desk, going as fast as my feet could take me to the football field.

I tightened my hair in my pony tail, as I spotted Max standing on the fifty yard line, back faced to me.

I walked up as silently as possible, hoping I could sneak up on him. As soon as I got five feet away, he spun around on his heel, holding a dozen roses.

I felt my jaw drop to the floor. "Will you be my girlfriend, Amanda?" Max smiled, holding the roses out to me. All I could do was blink at him, and hear my heart thudding in my ears.

Max's smile slowly wilted, and his shoulder slumped. "If you don't want to be my girlfriend I understand. Its okay." Max frowned, rocking back and forth on his heels.

"Of course I want to be your girlfriend!" I practically shouted.

I jumped into his arms, squishing the roses. He swung me around, before planting a kiss on my lips, both of us with mile wide smiles.


Started school again on the 7th. Sucked for me. Also if you have a wattpad it would mean a lot to me if you fanned me(: -Dayna
