I sighed as I hopelessly stared at the couples flirting with each other at the park. I've always wanted a boyfriend ever since I was younger. But, since I'm a total nobody, it's probably never going to happen.
Every day, after school I would go to the park and read a book or watch the people in the park. I spotted Scarlette, my rival and her stupid boyfriend laughing and flirting with each other. Scarlette's like the most popular girl in school and she would always tease me just because I don't have a boyfriend.
Ugh! Why am I even watching this?
Before I start to get up from the bench and leave, I noticed Scarlette and her boyfriend walk over to my direction. Oh, great.
"Hi, Sally," Scarlette said in her fake voice. "Still looking for a boyfriend? Well, honey, if you want a boyfriend so badly, why don't you just change...well, everything about yourself?" Scarlette and her boyfriend burst out laughing.
I scowled and stormed away. As I reached my house, I dug into my pocket to find some keys to the house. I shoved the key into the hole and turned it, making the wooden door open.
"Hey, honey," my mom greeted me cheerfully as I entered the house. "How was your day at school?" Like always, she was at the kitchen, doing the dishes.
"Fantastic," I said sarcastically.
"Good," she said, not noticing my sarcasm.
Rolling my blue eyes, I walked up the stairs and got to my room. I opened my laptop and logged onto Google and typed "dating sites for teens". There were several results so I clicked on the first link. The site says that you could go on teenspot.com. I clicked on the link and a website with a sky blue background popped up. There were like seven tabs on the top. I clicked on a tap that says "Meet People". Another page popped up, asking me what gender I am, what state I live in and all that jazz. After I did all that I clicked "search" and several pictures of guys popped up. I spotted a super cute blonde an clicked on his picture. Below his picture was his name: Morgan West. He was carrying a basketball with his right hand. He looked really friendly. I typed him a message. "Hi! I'm Sally!"
I waited for a reply back, my heart beating nervously. A few seconds later, he replied back! "Hi. I'm Morgan."
I tapped on my desk, thinking about what I should say next. Before I could type a reply back, he typed, "Give me ur number."
I just stared at the screen, my heart beating harder. Did he just...ask for my number? I barely know this guy! I only said three words to him and he already wants my number?
He typed again, "Give me ur number."
