This is a short story about a girl who put herself back into the dating world and is going on a date with a cute guy. Will all end well...let's find out!


It all started when I woke up this morning. I went downstairs to get myself some breakfast when I heard my phone ding. I check my phone and it's a voicemail form brad asking if I wanted to go somewhere. I call brad back and he answers. "Hey what's up Lisa" I responded to him wandering where he wanted to go.  " not much I was wondering were you wanted to go today?" Brad responded nonchalantly. "Anywhere works as long as it's somewhere cheep" I tried my best to think of something cheep near but but I couldn't accept for the don and Millie's by my house. "How does don and Millie's sound?" I was hoping he would suggest somewhere more appropriate for a date but alas he didn't instead he said "sounds chill" " how about I meet you there 7:30 it's a date so don't look like complete shit" he then hung up on me before I could respond to any of this. I panicked a little trying to figure what to wear. If I wear a dress than it's too formal all the pants I have are in the wash,leggings are out of question but he does what me too look nice. I changed my mind after I found my plain sundress and decided to wear my white sundress with my mint green open toe wedges. Lucky I got a mani pedi recently. I take to YouTube for advice on makeup and hair. I ended up having my hair down but wearing my white frame sunglasses on top of my head I have winged eyeliner and peach Color lipstick.  I take my purse with housekeys and money in it. I feel a little nervous so I put my pepper spray and pocket knife in my purse just in case. I walk to don and Millie's as it's just down the street from my house. I get there exactly at 7:30 so I find a table and sit down and wait for brad to show up. I sit there 5 minutes goes by. I stay still waiting on him getting a little anxious that I might get stood up but I assume he's just running a little late look at the door then sit back down. An hour goes by and he's still not here right as I get up to leave I see him at the door he shows up. Unbrushed hair, huge stain on his basketball shorts and a mine craft t shirt. I was tempted to walk out then but I chose to stay I had already waited an hour and 5 minutes. " hope I didn't have you waiting to long" he said.  Even though I waited for what felt like eternity I lied.  "No you didn't" we get in line and ordered our food he paid. And we find a table and sit down we start to eat have a little bit of small talk reference memes here and there when he spills his drink all over me at this point I'm about done but we continue the date he helps clean it off my dress which makes me think maybe this date isn't that bad.(little did I know it was about to get much worse)we finish our food and we leve "I want to spend more time with you Lisa" I agree to spend time with him "there's a park by my house we can go if you want" We then head off to the park. We get to the park and we walk around for a little bit we start to get closer to each other my hand touches his we end up holding hands his hand is so sweaty I want to let go but I really like him and don't wanna mess this up so I suffer through it. We get tired of walking and sit down on a park bench. " it's really hot out can we go somewhere with air conditioning" brad asks me. " sure where do you wanna go brad"  "maybe your place" he said I really didn't want him in my house so I suggest we  go back to don and Millie's or the gas station nearby. We keep arguing eventually I finally agree to go to my place. We get inside take off our shoes and go upstairs to the living room "nice place" brad says nodding his head we sit on the couch he puts his arms around me  which felt very wrong. So I get up to get us some water. I sit back down and he hugs me around the waist and rests his head on my boob I don't know what to do I try to get him off me It's like trying to pry away from a cobra. My cat then saved the day and came up and full on bit brads foot. Thank god I started to laugh but he then kicks my cat across the floor before I can do anything. "Do that again and I fucking kill you" "understandable sorry for kicking your cat"  I tried to get him to leave the house I asked him in a nice but firm way. I said that I forgive him even though I'm still pissed about it.  He then hugged my waist again putting his head on my boob I sturuggle to get out of it as hard as I can I then hear the door open my moms home he dropped me like a sack of potatoes (thank goodness) so then with my moms help we get him to leave.  And that ladies and gentlemen is the most awkward date ever
