12 Days of Christmas
"Here's the deal," he began saying. "I know you don't feel the same way as I feel about you. That's why I've come up with a solution to satisfy us both."
"I'm listening," I said, intrigued.
"Today is December 14, which would be exactly 12 days before Christmas. Are you familiar with the classic Christmas song '12 Days of Christmas'?" he questioned.
"Uh, who isn't?" I chuckled.
"Well then here's my proposition for you, for exactly 12 days you let me be your boyfriend," he stated.
"And before you say no..." he said, cutting me off. "I think both of us would benefit from this deal. Know why? Well, as of what I can tell, we're not running the risk of 'ruining the friendship' since the friendship is already ruined. And this would be my one chance to make you fall for me. If you don't by the time it's Christmas then I'll leave you alone or we'll go back to the way things used to be. Me and you, best friends and only best friends."
"Well... What exactly would we be doing for 12 days?" I asked.
"Well since you asked, we'd be going on dates, doing stuff that would make you fall for me and most importantly, we'd act like a couple. To summarize, you'll be getting the full boyfriend experience," he chuckled with a smug look on his face.
"Interesting proposition, Joey," I complimented, giggling a bit. "I'm in. You're chance to prove yourself to me starts... now."
Without saying a word, he wraps his arms around my waist, pulling me close, as he brought his lips to mine.
