Twenty Seven:

It's the 21st of December today. 

Gabriel's 18th birthday. And apparently there's a party tonight and me and the gang are all invited.

I've decided to go. Why? I don't know. At least I'll have a present for him. 

I can see how this may look but I just want to be friends..

"Ells!" I got a fright from Logan's big mouth.

I turned to face her again. "Yeah?"

She huffed. "I asked what you were planning on wearing?"

I snorted, yeah I'm not really girly anyways. "This." I looked down at my outfit satisfied with it. 

She choked, quite dramatically too. "No, your not. I mean come on Ells you could at least look decent."

I rolled my eyes at her. "I do look decent. I'm not going to dress up, I just don't want to send the wrong message. You know guys these days."

I mean, what is wrong with my sweater, chuck taylor originals, and some jean shorts. She nods her head while straightening her hair. The party started at seven and it was 6:30 pm. We planned on going at around eight though.

I hate being early and plus the party would have already started by then and things would be well on their way. Quentin texted the address this morning although Logan insists she knows that neighborhood so we shouldn't have any trouble finding it.

We decided to head out to get something to eat seeing as I was hungry as fuck. The one day of the week that I want to enjoy peacefully to myself is ruined so food is the only way to cheer me up. 

"Girl, you look really pretty tonight. Anyone your trying to impress?"

She smiles slightly not knowing how to take a compliment, she never does.

For real though, her make-up was on point. There was definitely someone.

I didn't want to probe her too much and have her get annoyed at me so I drove quietly to the nearest Burger Fuel.

"I think I like Leon!" She yells out like she wants to tell me and the whole world. Then she puts her hand over her mouth.

I can't help but laugh. "I had a feeling, you both clicked that night. We'll what are you going to do about it?"

She's all giggly and you can tell that she's excited. "I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier and lied last week. I was with Leon and I just wasn't sure about my feelings for him at the time and didn't want to-"

I stopped her. "It's cool Logan. Just tell him, he may be all cool and mysterious but he can be blind so tell him. No rush."

I pull into the car park, it was really hot tonight. Thankfully I was wearing a top under my jumper. 

"Yeah, let's eat. Lord forbid if I get drunk tonight I need this food."

We chomped down our combos, I swear all this food is going to bite me in the ass one day and my flabs are going to bulge out and then who'll be still laughing.

"God, you got to stop day dreaming Ells."

I snapped out of it. "Just eat your burger."

She complied and so did I. I was beginning to regret going tonight. I mean, so much shit could go down tonight that I'm not mentally prepared for.

"You don't have to stay for very long. I know how you hate awkward situations." I couldn't agree more.

"You sure?" I felt bad ditching my best friend at the party.
