Rebeccah's POV

It was finally 7:00pm, I had an hour to get ready to see Mathew.

I was home from work and I ate a little dinner but not much because of my little date...or not a date, maybe just a meet up. I will still look nice for it though.

I went to my bathroom and washed my face. I put on some of Raquel's makeup she got from the drug store. It was concealer, lip gloss and mascara. After that I brushed my hair and styled it so it didn't look like I was just in a soup Kitchen for 5 hours.

To finish my face area I put on some pink jem earrings.

Then I walked into the bedroom and started rummaging through my old OLD clothes.

I couldn't seem to find ANYTHING!

"What are you doing?" Raquel asked leaning on the door frame with a laundry basket full of dirty clothes in her hands.

"Im going out with Mathew in 30 minutes and I dont have anything to wear!" I exclaimed.

She smiled at me and set the basket down on the floor walking towards her own makeshift dresser.

Then she pulled out a dress that would go down mid-knee. It was a pastel pinkish purple and it was glittery and so beautiful.

"Where did you get this" I asked while delicately touching the dress.

"It was my moms prom dress. She wanted me to wear it to prom. Even though she was hateful she even could be nice some of the time." Raquel said smiling at my shocked expression.

"I cant wear this! Its your moms, its special to you!" I told her.

She chuckled softly and began with her reason for me to wear the dress. "Look Beccah, I hate dresses and I dropped out of highschool so there is no way I could go to prom. Wear it. Thats an order."

I reluctantly took the dress and went into the bathroom. I put it on and when I walked out Raquel gasped.

"You look gorgeous!" She beamed.

"Thank you." I smiled.

Raquel grabbed my moms old dress shoes that I was going to wear if I was ever invited to prom.

"Wear these." She told me.

I took them and put them on. I did look pretty but there was only 1 problem.

"I cant ride a bike in a dress!"

Raquel grabbed my hand pulling me away she took me downstairs and we ended at her old beat up Chevy truck that she drove EVERYWHERE.

She threw me the keys and I surprisingly caught them.

"You want me to drive your truck?" I asked her.

"Yep! I would drive you but I can't leave Ethan and Raine alone." She told me.

"Thanks for everything sis!" I said giving her an unexpected hug.

I drove the chevy to the park making it at 8:05pm.

I got out and walked up sitting on a wooden bench.

"Hey there. You look resplendent." A boys voice said from behind me.

I turned around seeing Mathew there. He had a light blue botton up and jeans on. His hair look nice as well.

"Hi, thank you. You don't look to bad yourself."

He put his hand out and I took it he walked around the bench so that he was infront of me and gently pulled me up.

Our hands were still holding each other while we walked in the little park while the sun was setting.

"You really do look beautiful Rebeccah." He told me making my heart melt at his words and soothing voice.

"Thank you Mathew."

We walked in silent until he stopped under a huge Willow tree.

"Um, so tell me about yourself." He said.

"Well.." I started looking to the side because those brown eyes are going to be the end of me. "I guess im just your normal, poor, awkward, silly, unnoticed girl." I smiled at him looking into his eyes.

"I still can't believe I never saw you at all in school. I mean thats crazy." He said.

"It is." I laughed.

"What about you?" I asked him.

"Well my parents divorced when I was 6 and my dad who is rich made me live with him on the weekdays and my mom on the weekends. My mom isnt doing to well though.." He mumbled the last part taking a breath before continuing. "She has breast cancer and I dont know how long she has." He spat out.

"Im so sorry Mathew. Im sure she will get through it. I mean I did." I smiled a reassuring smile.

"What do you mean?" He asked.

"Exactly what I said." I laughed.

"Hey dont use my words against me!" I said playing a big grin on his face.

"When I was 10 till 12 I had lung cancer but miraculously I got through it." I told him.

"What if she doesn't..." He mumbled quietly.

I pulled him into a hug shocking him.

"Its ok to be scared Mathew. But make sure to be faithful at least." I told him.

He wrapped his big arms around me kissing the top of my head. "Thank you Rebeccah, you are so special to me, I hope you know that." He said.

I looked up at him and said, "I know."

We looked deep in each others eyes.

"Can I tell you something?" I questioned.

"Go ahead."

"I have had a crush on you for a long time and I was just wanting to let you know because I cant hold it in anymore!" I said super quick.

He laughed slightly and held my chin in his hand.

"Maybe I didn't know who you were but I knew Pinky, I had a crush on you since the first day we met."

I was shocked.

We stared at each other in silence.

Then he leaned in and softly kissed me.

My whole entire body was on fire. He then wrapped me in a comforting hug.

Thats going to be a night to remember.
