I walked in the school hallway with Ronnie talking about her
birthday party next week.
"My parents are letting me have it in the Star Fall Country club" said Ronnie "It's going to begin at noon and never end",
"It's going to take a lot of hard work" I said as she nodded in agreement.
"Are you going to bring Cash?" she asked curiously good question, am I going to bring Cash?
"I don't think so" I said as she looked disappointed.
"Why not?" she said confused "I haven't met Cash since you started going out with him, I need to see him so I can make fun of him".
The truth is, I wanted to keep my dating life away from my crushing life. How am I supposed to handle my boyfriend and my crush in the same place? I wanted to tell Ronnie that but I can't because than I'd have to tell her that I'm still crushing on Raymond and I don't wanna go down that road again.
"I'll ask him" I said and hope he'll say no.
"Too bad Landon can't come" said Ronnie as I cringed on his name. It's been a while since I thought of Landon, mostly because I have enough of boy drama but somewhere deep in my mind, Landon's still there and I don't think he's planning to come out at any time sooner.
I sat in Ronnie in her bedroom at night in our pajamas "I can't
believe you still go to that crazy lady, you don't need to cause
obviously you're fine".
"It makes my parents feel safe" I said shrugging "I don't mind anyway, I go to a crazy lady every day and not tell her about my life while my parents pay 200$ an hour so it's a win situation".
She laughed while sitting on her couch and painting her toenails "But I'm surprised that Cash agreed to come".
"Well he does smoke pot than he must be the party type I guess" I said trying to make her get me to not invite Cash.
"I spoke to Landon today" she said as my stomach cringed again "He's pretty bummed that he can't make it to the party".
"Yeah, it's a shame" I said than I'll have my crush, my ex and my boyfriend in one party.
"You're over him right?" she asked in assurance.
"Yeah totally" I said "I'm with the drug dealer now".
"I can't wait to see your new boyfriend" she said excited as I smiled.
I looked at the clock and it was 2 AM. Ronnie was already asleep
in her bed and I was trying to sleep in my sleeping bag but I
Maybe a glass of milk would do I stood up and tip toed out of the room quietly. I walked slowly out of the room and down the stairs to the kitchen. I opened the fridge quietly and looked for the milk cart.
"What are you doing here?" said Raymond from behind me as I jumped from my place and turned around quickly.
"I'm getting a glass of milk" I said innocently "What are you doing here? You almost got me a heart attack".
"I'm stopping you from stealing my milk" he said in a duh tone as I looked at his feet and saw him wearing boots.
"In boots?" I said pointing at his feet as he rolled his eyes.
"None of your business Summer" he said as I smirked.
"On the contrary" I said as he sat on the kitchen's table "You almost got me a heart attack so you owe me an explanation".
"So? I was out, what's your point?" he said shrugging.
"Its 2 A.M" I said "I bet if I told your parents they'll have a point".
"I was in a street race" he confessed as I smirked in victory "but so was your badass boyfriend Cash".
"You see, that's none of your business" I said.
"Yeah but don't say I haven't warned you" he said "That guy isn't really your type".
"You don't know my type" I said.
"Yet, I do" he said "You want a cheesy romantic guy that thinks you're his soul mate and that you're both meant to be together forever".
"No" I said quietly "I don't want that".
"Yes, you do" said Raymond "Seriously Summer just think about it, you're only 15 you're never gonna meet you're soul mate now".
"You don't know that" I said defensively.
"Yet I do" he said standing up and walking closer to me "I know every single crush you had".
"Seriously Raymond stop thinking you're a know it all when you're clearly clueless" I yelled "You know I don't even think that Cash's the one because I don't even like him".
"Yeah right" he said sarcastically.
"I like you" I whined as he froze in his place.
"You know Summer, you shouldn't really joke about these things" he said as I glared at him "….You like me???? What the hell? Summer, I'm Ronnie's brother".
"Don't you think I know that?" I said.
"You can't be serious…. I can date all the girls in the world but you? Never Summer never" said Raymond giving me a serious look.
"Jeez Raymond I get it, you don't have to rub it in my face" I said feeling my eyes water up "I know you like Jessica and I know you'll never like me and that's why I never told you but I'm sick of keeping this a secret".
"Well you should have kept it that way" he said before walking away.
