he was, hanging out with his friends. The only guy that really had
my attention, JT. Ever since he moved here from Phoenix, I just
really wanted to be his girlfriend. He would never go after a girl
like me though. Being a nerdy girl never really catches guys'

Sarah, what's up?"
trying to look for Chris. Have you seen him?"
he's over by the library talking to some girl."
really? I wonder why."
and Chris are going out. She is always suspicious whenever she sees
him talking to another person, guy or girl, alone. She was really
insecure about her looks even though she is the prettiest girl at
school. Her concerns about getting cheated on really took a toll on
her and Chris' relationship. I didn't like the fact she was dating
Chris because he was a major jerk. She is also my best friend in
the whole world. I don't like seeing her in pain.
excuse me," A deep voice said to me.
S-sorry," I said turning around surprised to see it was JT. "OH!
hi Ashley, I was wondering if I could ask you a
What is it?" I said over excitedly and
I was wondering if you wanted to go out on a date with
you kidding? I would love to!" Blushing as I replied to
"Great," smiling as he continued to talk "How
about this Friday night? Maybe a movie?"
sounds great! See you then!"
seriously embarrass myself sometimes. I was so excited for my date
with JT though! I can't believe he asked me out. I couldn't wait to
tell Sarah and Stephen, my other best friend, about
asked Ashley out on a date. Most stupid dare ever. I never meant to
ask her out but the guys dared me to ask her. I would have never
even thought of asking out some girl who's smarter than me! At
least it's just one date, after that I won't have to keep seeing
her. I can be an ass sometimes.
guys! You won't believe what happened to me just right
happened?" Stephen and Sarah both simultaneously asked
asked me out!"
in badass JT?" Stephen confusingly asked
Can you believe that!?"
"Actually, no, I can't. Are you making this
up!?" Sarah asked.
I'm pretty sure I'm not making this up!" I said defending
"There's no way a guy like JT would ask a girl
like you! You're too smart and mature for him. Why would he ask you
out?" Stephen said.
got a point there, Stephen. Ashley, what did you tell him? Yes?"
Sarah asked nosily.
course I did Sarah! Why wouldn't I have? Oh my gosh! You and Chris
should come and it could be a double date! It's tomorrow night.
What do you say?!"
would love to, Ashley, I really would, but Chris blew me off again.
We were supposed to go out tomorrow." She said
screw him! He blows you off too much! You need a good time! Why
don't you break up with him already?!" I asked
I love him. And I don't see why I have to break up with him if he's
busy, I understand." She said trying to defend Chris.
whatever Sarah! I just don't want to see you get hurt! Well I'll
talk to you guys later, bye!"
skipped joyfully to my next class with the thought that I actually
had a date with JT tomorrow night. I would have never guessed in a
million years he was interested in me! Nothing could get in the way
of my happiness. Not anything…
Friday night couldn't have possibly gotten here quick enough. I
dreaded the date that I had with Ashley. Well it was my own stupid
fault for taking my friends dare. I didn't even like Ashley! She
was way too smart for me. Oh well, that's what I get for taking a
dare from my dumbass friends.
seven o' clock came around, I met Ashley at the movies. I thought
this was a good "date" so we wouldn't have to talk. We decided to
watch "Priest". Great decision. I've wanted to watch this movie, so
I'll be too interested in the movie to pay any attention to
surprised you asked me out. What made you want to ask me out all of
a sudden?" She said breaking the silence.
well... I've just noticed how cute you are. I wanted to get to know
you better." I said quickly saving myself.
now? Ha, well I wouldn't have guessed that a bad ass like you would
pay attention to me. To be honest, I've had the biggest crush on
you for awhile now." She said quietly.
That got to me. Now I really hated myself for asking her out. I
would have never imagined her liking me.
a laugh. "Ha, really? Aw, how sweet."
blushed. "I have no idea why I just said that. I just embarrassed
myself now. Sorry for saying that."
very awkward and didn't have very good communication skills. It
makes me wonder if she's ever been out on a date
can go get out seats and I'll get our drinks and stuff. So what do
you want from the concession stand?" I said, hoping no one I knew
was here to see me with her.
sure. Um, get me a Dr. Pepper and some skittles, please." She spoke
tell me that's who I think it is," A familiar voice
I said under my breath. "Hey, Alice. What are you doing here? You
never come here!"
well I'm on a date with some guy I met at the ravine hangout." She
who's this?" Ashley asked in her quiet voice.
"Ashley, this is Alice, my ex." I
to meet you, Ashley. Hey JT, I didn't know you went after goody
two-shoes like this bitch right here." she replied attacking
looked like she just got slapped. "Um, I'm going to go get our
seats now… The movie should be starting soon."
I said then turned my attention towards Alice "Was that really
"Actually, yes it was. Look, I miss you JT,
please take me back!" She begged.
I'm trying to move on after what you did to me. Who goes out and
cheats on their boyfriend with their boyfriend's best friend? A
bitch, that's who," I said disgustingly.
I'm sorry! What else can I say? I truly am sorry. I don't know what
I can do to make it up to you."
well you can try by leaving me alone with my date now. I mean it
Alice, don't do something stupid to try and ruin my date." I spat
"Fine. I don't know what I ever saw in you
anyways." She countered.
to go find where Ashley was sitting. I found her and could tell she
had been crying.
wrong? If it's what Alice said back in the lobby just ignore it.
She can be a bitch sometimes. You have nothing to be sad about." I
she shouldn't have said that! There was no reason for it! I'm sorry
but can we just leave? I don't want to be in the same place as
her." Ashley said coldly.
sure. No problem."
decided to take Ashley out for ice cream. I started to get to know
her. I'm surprised I didn't ask her out sooner. She was really
interesting once we started talking.
what's the deal with that Alice chick?" She finally
to make a long story short, she cheated on me with my best friend"
I told her.
That must have sucked a lot. I don't know what you saw in her. She
seems like a total bitch anyways."
she had her moods, haha." I jokingly said.
well I could see that after she called me a bitch." She said
smiled. "Well this has been a great first date, I guess. Ha, how
about we go take a walk now?"
you sure about that? You don't want anyone else seeing us now do
you?" She said sharply
swallowed hard and laughed nervously. "Who cares if anyone sees us
together? It's not like it's the end of the world if anyone sees us
alright, let's go!"
walked to the park. We talked about ourselves to each other. It was
a pretty nice time. I didn't know a first date could be this
enjoyable instead of awkward and weird like most. After we stayed
and talked at the park for a good hour, I took Ashley back
a great time tonight. Thanks for making my first date great…" She
this was your first date, huh? I thought so since you acted pretty
awkward at the beginning of the date." I laughed.
actually it was my first date. And thanks for making it so great."
problem. So are we gonna have a second date?" I
don't see why not. How about tomorrow?"
See you then"
leaned in and kissed her on the lips. She had blushed a bright red.
date wasn't so bad after all. I was actually kind of grateful this
happened. And now I couldn't wait for tomorrow night. Tonight was
the best night ever.
