Denise's POV

I went out to get some fresh air and think about what just happened.

Larry: You're thinking about him right? :)

Me: Larry. (I said, turning to face him) You scared me.

Larry: Sorry. Do You still love him? Carnell.

Me: I don't wanna lie to you. I'm not sure. I don't know.

Larry: That's worse, Denise! You need to figure it out... And quick coz I'm not wasting my time!

Me: Larry! I know that I like you. A lot. But I just wanna be sure!

Larry: (Leans in and kisses me) Is that good enough to make up your mind?!

Me: (I was still in chock, but it felt so good and honest) yes... :)

We went back inside with everyone else. Yes. I'm officially dating Larry... :)

The next day, I went to B5's house coz Ms Adrian wanted me to come over for dinner.

Adrian: hello there! (She hugs me) How are you?

Me: I'm tired! Haha I feel like crashing on your couch! Lol

Adrian: haha! Make yourself at home sweet heart!

Dustin: What up what up?! :)

Me: Hey Dustin! :) Where's kae?

Dustin: At her crib I think! Mom just invited you and no one else! Lol bday celebration.

Me: Aaw that's so cute! Thank you Ms Adrian! :)

Kelly: hey, 21 is here! Lol

Bryan: Yeah, now your name is 21! Don't look at us like that! Your best friend Pat, is to blame! Lol

Patrick: You know I can't hold my inspiration inside! :) (He hugs me)

Me: Lol! Where's Carnell?

Carnell: Here. Hi.

Patrick: Be careful, Mr grumpy is back!! Lol

Adrian: Pat leave him alone please! Come on everybody, lets eat.

During the dinner:

Carnell: So Denise! How is your boyfriend going?

Me:... Hum...

Dustin: What boyfriend?!

Carnell: Oh you didn't know?! She's dating Larry! Yeah, indeed!

Kelly: We didn't know that! :)

Carnell: yes me neither! I mean I was confused when I saw them kissing yesterday since she told me earlier that they weren't together. Why would you lie to me Denise?!

Patrick: Man, what's your point?! That's enough!

Carnell: Oh my bad. I just want to know why she's a liar! That's all!

Bryan: Carnell, give it a rest! Stop.

Carnell: Just saying...

Adrian: Shut up! Shut up Carnell! I don't know what you're trying to do but you better stop right there, boy!

(The door bell rang)

Carnell: Oh that must be Larisa! I invited her over! :)

Adrian: Carnell!! (She stood up and stormed out of the dinning room)

Bryan: man you need to check yourself up!! (He runs after his mom)

Dustin: You've been disrespectful to everyone and you ruined her bday dinner. Thank you Carnell.

Kelly: I'm gonna go open the door!

Patrick: What's wrong with you Carnell?! I don't recognize you!

Carnell: She lied to me! She told me they weren't dating while they obviously were!

Dustin: Then what?! Who cares?!

Carnell: I DO!

Patrick: WHY?!

Carnell: Because...

Me: BECAUSE WHAT? GIVE ME A BREAK CARNELL! I WASN'T DATING LARRY UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN WE KISSED! SO WHAT? YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND ANYWAY, WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!

Carnell: The damn TRUTH!

Me: THIS IS THE TRUTH! Now take it or leave it. I'm going home ( I walked out of the dinning room)

Patrick: Denise, wait! (He said, running after me)
