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


Me, Max, Caleb, Hallie, Sky, and Nate all sat in the Saunders's living room, watching the third Transformers movie. It was like triple move date, except we weren't paying for overpriced movie theater popcorn. And here I was able to prop up my broken leg.

After homecoming, Nate and Sky made it official, and finally became boyfriend girlfriend. I couldn't have been happier for her, she had been crushing on him since the 8th grade.

Max's fingers gently rubbed up and down my arm. I looked up and him, and my eyes meet his. I have him a little kiss, and before I knew it, we were making out.

A few low coughs echoed threw out the room, and I broke away from Max. Everyone was staring at us, and I could feel heat rise to my cheeks.

"Our bad." Max smirked trying to hold in laughter. I punched him in the side, and buried my face in his chest.

I felt my phone go off in my pocket. I pulled it out to see one new message from Sky. I looked at her, giving her and little look. "Read the text." She mouthed. I rolled my eyes at her, and click the read button.

Sky: I need to talk to you.

Amanda: About what?

Sky: At the homecoming dance last weekend, every time a slow song came on, Max was dancing with this one girl. It looked pretty romantic to me.

I felt my heart skip a beat. I looked up at Max and he gave a little half smile, kissed me on the forehead and turned back to the movie.

Amanda: What was her name? What did she look like?

Sky: I'm pretty sure her name is Lexi. She's pretty short, brown hair, pale with freckles.

I felt relief flood through my body.

Amanda: That's actually one of his best friends. Lexi is really nice and she has a boyfriend who goes to her church. But thanks for telling me.

Sky: No problem(: What are friends for?

I slid my phone back into my jeans pocket, and snuggled up to my perfect boyfriend.

*Six Weeks Later*

I couldn't hide my grin as I stared at my cast-less leg. Six long weeks, but my cast was finally off. Pretty soon I would be back in the air, doing what I love best, cheerleading.

"Make sure to take cheering easy, and don't rush into anything extreme. Make sure to stretch your leg extra good. Other than that you seem to be walking perfectly and are free to go." Dr. Reyes said patting me on the back.

Right as I got home, cell phone blared in my purse. Caleb's picture appeared on the screen.

"Hey Caleb, what's up?"

"I heard you just got your cast off." Caleb replied.

"Yup. Actually just about an hour ago." I said letting out a little laugh.

"Anyways I was thinking we could do the home homecoming dance on Saturday." Caleb said through the phone.

"But that's only three days way, is that even enough time?" I asked walking up the stairs to my room.

"Of course. I got it all planned. You just have to show up looking beautiful like always."I felt a blush rise through my body.

"Well I have to go do some weird stretches but I'll talk to you later." I said hanging up the phone.

I threw myself on my bed think about how great Saturday was going to be.

Brace yourself this is going to be a long little author's note. But it has some important stuff in it. For one there is mostly going t be a few more time jumps. The next one is going to be about one year. You'll find out why(; So currently I really don't have a lot of time to write, because teachers refuse to let me have time for thing other then school. So I wanted you all to decide what I should do. There I two options about how I will be posting chapter for The Story of Us from now on. One: I can just keep on posting them whenever I can. Two: Or we can wait a few months, I can get all the chapters written, and then I can post then every other day. In the next chapter which I'm hoping will be out this weekend, I will let you know what the decision is. Thanks Guys.
