I was just arriving home from morning skating practice when my phone started buzzing. I quickly check it. The screen of my cell phone reads Caleb in large Capitol letters. it's a text message. that's odd he almost never texts me.
Hey, have you noticed Amy has been acting kinda weird? she's barely talking to me.
Amy is Caleb's girlfriend. She's older than us, and is in the same grade as my best friends, Emma and Mandy. They don't talk to each other a lot so id be surprised if the relationship lasts. maybe I should text back.
Ya I've kinda noticed... why isn't she talking to you?
I quickly get a reply.
Idk. What if she dumps me?
No, she won't she loves you
oh wait she's typing brb.
Oh that's good . she's talking to him. I await for Cayleb to text back.
Oh, I'm scared she says she has to talk.
Oh that's never a good sign what am I supposed to say? But he needs someone to be there for him so I'll figure it out.
Oh, just hear her out. I'm here for you no matter what she says.
It's been a couple minutes since Caleb texted. I hope he's ok.
She asked ME to dump HER. she's practically begging idk why.
Oh. you'll be ok just say what you feel and see how it goes.
She had to go but we are officially broken up. :(
Oh, well are you ok? You need to cry?
Too late I already am.
I gotta go sorry sweet dreams I hope you feel better in the morning.
I talked to him for a couple hours and calmed him down and somewhere along the way, I think I'm starting to develop feelings for him. he's so sweet and nice. oh god what am I thinking?! he just broke up with his girlfriend like two hours ago. anyways I should probably get to bed.
My eyes open slowly, all I see is the pale green of my bedroom ceiling and a glimmering sunbeam streaming in through my curtains. I reach my arm over and hit my alarm clock until it turns off. I thought id send a quick text to Caleb.
Good morning see you at school. :)
Just to make sure he knows he's not alone in the world. I throw on my Aeropostale jeans and a tshirt with my favourite Aeropostale sweater, brush my teeth and hair. then I grab my bag and walk to school. I meet up with one of my old friends Jenny at the park. we usually walk to school together but my best friends are Emma and Mandy. "Hey Lil!" Jenny exclaimed as I run up to her. "Hey Jen" I say. I'm not in much of a talking mood this morning because I'm still not sure what to do about me liking Caleb. Soon enough we arrive at school, I walk upstairs so I can put my bag in my locker. "Hey Lillie!" I hear a voice call, oh it's Karma. "Oh, hi karma." she's in the same class as Caleb and she approaches me after leaving her conversation with him. "So, um, Caleb likes you. he was too shy to tell you though." ohmygosh! So many thoughts ran through my mind in that split second. "Oh ok." I stammered before flashing Caleb a nervous smile and continuing down the long seemingly endless corridor. I finally reach my locker. number 479 and pull on my lock. I never bother to lock it because my lock is too stubborn. I swung my bag into the small opening and grasped my books and took them to my desk. I drop my books on my desk and exit the classroom.
I have a quick conversation with Octavia and Nora before the bell rang for class to begin. We all rush into class and get out our math books. ugh I hate class.
Finally it's free period. I run downstairs and meet up with Em and Mandy. "Hey guys. wanna hang after skating?" I ask enthusiastically, anything to get my mind off Caleb. "Totally! love to." they replied in sync. we do that a lot, we are like sisters. "Ok sounds great."
I'm just tying the last knot in my laces as coach Sarah calls for us on the ice. I run out and pull off my guards ad all the girls begin stroking around the ice.
I look over to Mandy who's on my right. Lillie's been acting really weird lately so I'm gonna see if Mandy knows what's up. "So Mandy, have you noticed that Lil's been different today?" I ask with a genuine tone I curiosity in my voice. "Ya shes being really weird. what's up with her?" ugh, guess she doesn't know.
