~Dedicated to all those who soared over the moon for your first date~
Chapter Six-"Yeah that makes a lot more sense, he's a crazy cat feeder"
You know when you walk into school and everyone just turns, their eyes gazing up at you? Well that was happening to me right now. I felt like a superstar, like I had just stepped out of a magazine, a queen, where everyone admires and girls look at you with envy. I licked my lips, pushed back my blonde waves and walked down the hallway, not making eye contact with anyone.
Yes, you Vivienne Lanter are one hot little girl.
I heard a few girls whispering as I neared my locker, their eyes fixed solely on me as I turned the combination, swinging the metal door open and digging around for my books. As I focused on finding my Chemistry book, I heard a girly voice speaking to me, well about me more like it.
"Is that the girl Matt was dared to take to The Dance?"
I turned my attention to the black haired girl, as she spoke easily to the brunette girl who replied, "No, it can’t be."
My jaw dropped, did they really think I was some new girl? I was about to say something when I heard a deep voice behind me.
"Viv," Dave greeted, as he slid easily in front of me.
I couldn’t help the blush that crept onto my cheeks, "Dave…hi."
"You know last night you didn’t get to dance with me," Dave began with a smile, "so I was thinking that maybe this weekend we go to the movies this weekend?"
I frowned, "But you don’t dance at…" it clicked suddenly, Dave was asking me out on a date, "Oh! I mean yeah…I uh, would love to go to the movies."
Dave grinned at me, "Great, we’ll talk later?"
I nodded numbly, a goofy smile stretching across my lips. I watched Dave as he walked away and sighed. I was so going to love becoming popular.
Juliet was the first person that I told about Dave. We were in the music room because there was no way that I was going to sit in the cafeteria telling her about my excitement with everyone watching. I needed privacy, and the music room was exactly where I found it. Juliet’s hair was pulled up into a long red braid, her bangs were clipped back for once and she wore simple jeans and a white flowery shirt, but even so, she looked good.
Even without my glasses and the ugly clothes, I still didn’t feel as confident as I should have been. I didn’t know why, but it still felt as though people were talking about me behind my back, that they were still laughing at me and mocking me when I wasn’t looking. I couldn’t help it, but my ego was low and in serious need of some help. Juliet luckily for me, was the person who could help.
"Do you know Dave Peterson?" I asked her.
"I do," Juliet grinned, "he’s the de toute beautè boy that swims."
I nodded, "Well…he asked me out on a date!"
Juliet shrieked, "Finally!"
My lips widened into a smile, "I know right? A date, me going out on a-"
I stopped. I was going on a date with Dave Peterson who probably has kissed girls before and thought that I knew how to behave in society. I, Vivienne Lanter the VL senior who still didn’t know how to kiss was going on a date with a guy who probably expected to kiss me. I gulped. Not only would he expect to kiss me but he would also expect me to know what to do on a date. Oh dear God help me.
"Lanter," Sean greeted as I stepped out of school.
I sighed, "Yeah?"
"Someone’s not in a good mood," he replied with a smirk.
