This is How it Was Meant To Be

This is a story about four girls - Willow, Janice, Tayla and Sofia - whose lives are interconnected, even though they don't realise it. Each of these girls unknowingly help each other out with what they crave for the most! This is a story I wrote to show how everything we do affects the people around us. Please read :)


10. Janice

Sofia is the best, most wonderful, absolutely amazing person I have ever met!

After what she did in the canteen yesterday, it seemed my life was perfect. I couldn't quite stop blushing when Josh was staring at me as though it was the first time he had seen me, and when the bell had rung I felt like I had been saved the horror of actually saying something that sounded mature. All I thought I could manage was "Eeep!" Thank heavens I didn't actually say that, or Josh would have decided a bitch was better than a freak after all.

So it was in Chemistry class that it happened.

Josh and I were partners in a particularly difficult and incomprehensible experiment involving chemicals whose names I couldn't even memorise. But that was fine, because the word 'chemistry' in our case had a totally different meaning. Lame joke, I know, but I feel like everything in the world is funny now. 

"So," he kept saying. I felt myself go red again. He probably noticed this because he was suddenly laughing. "You don't really have to blush so much okay?"

I laughed too. I couldn't help it. "Well ... I dunno ..." I stammered. I didn't know what exactly I was supposed to say. "Is there anything you think you want to tell me?"

And now it was his turn to blush. I pretended I hadn't noticed and busied myself with sodium nitrate instead. But then he spoke, and my heart nearly jumped out. "I'm sorry Janice," he whispered. "I can't believe I never noticed you. I mean, Willow is such a -" he said something highly vulgar that I'd rather not mention, but inside my heart was cheering him on. "Sofia is right - you never really realise what you really have ..." he fixed his gorgeous blue eyes on mine and I felt I would embarrass myself by transforming into a tomato or something, considering I did already resemble the colour of that fruit.

"I - I don't know what to say," I said thickly. Why don't you just shut up if you don't know what to say, an annoying voice was yelling inside my head. Don't make a fool of yourself. He's trying to say something to you. 

"Look, Janice," he said urgently, nervously tapping the beaker he was holding. "I won't blame you if you want to punch me or something, because I've been a -" another swear word I'd rather not mention. "But I just wanted to ask you - if you, uh, want to, well, go out ... maybe?"

I couldn't control myself anymore. I got so excited that I nearly knocked over a rack of acids on myself, my heart going mad doing a dance that I don't even think exists. Stop it, the voice hissed. Say yes! Say yes! He's waiting! 

And indeed he was. He was looking at me so anxiously that I almost laughed. I wanted to scream out a YES at the top of my voice for the whole world to hear, but considering the perpetual foul mood of my Chemistry teacher, I thought better of it and whispered a very faint but decisive, "Of course," to Josh.
