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 sauntered over to the school parking lot. The whole place was deserted except for Caleb's car. I sped walked over to it, smiling like a fool, with a dozen squished roses.

I climbed into the backseat, as Sky had already claimed the front. I genteelly laid the roses in my lap, still smiling.

Sky and Caleb both turned and looked at me. "Where have you been?" They blurted at the same time. They quickly glanced at each other, and then back at me. "Max asked me to be his girlfriend!" I gushed feeling my smile growing wider. Sky squealed, clapping her hands and Caleb gritted his teeth, starting the car, and pulling out of the parking lot.

Sky climbed into the back seat, and we gossiped about the whole thing.

Caleb pulled in front of my house. Right before I open the car door Caleb turned back and looked at me. "He's trouble Amanda." Caleb says looking serious as ever. I rolled my eyes, crossing my arms over my chest.

"All the freshmen football players think they rule the world just because there on the team. They think they can do whatever they want. There not ever Varsity. The just the fish on the bottom." Caleb says frowning.

"And how would you know? You're and junior and on the varsity team." I spat back bitterly.

"Because I was one two years ago." He replied, turning back to face the front.

I got out of the car, and then walked to the driver's side, leaning into Caleb's opened window.

"Don't worry Caleb. I'll show him trouble."

So this is one of those super short filler chapters. Sorry about that. But on the bright side, im thinking im going to try my hardest to get chapters out fast, and there should be another on out tomorrow or wensday.
