4. I wanna be more than just friends.


I had now gone to the school for an entire week. I had settled in well and I had gotten some good friends, and my mom was beginning to accept my friendship with Darren. Today I was going out with Darren; he said he had a surprise for me. I was excited to see what it was. We had to meet at the café. I grabbed my cellphone and went to the café where Darren was waiting for me. I went up to him and gave him a hug, and we had one of our moments where we would just stand there and look at each other until we got cut off. He went and got a guitar and got on stage. He played a song and when I thought he was about to play another one, he said “Now I would like you to please welcome the very talented and very beautiful, Katrine” He smiled at me, and I just stood there, looking at him strangely, no way I was going up on that stage, playing for all those people. But Darren pulled me up and I had no choice but to play. I decided to play “When I look at you”, and of couse I chose to play it for Darren, hoping that he couldn’t figure it out, and he didn’t look like he could. When I had finished everyone clapped for me. I went off stage and walked to the bar to buy a coffee. I spent all day with Darren. After we had been to the café we went to the beach. We walked along the waters edge while we talked. Our arms touched, and I wished I could just take his hand, but I knew it would be awkward if he didn’t feel as the same way, so I had better not. But before I had time to think further he took my hand and we ran along the waters edge until we got too tired. We sat down further from the ocean and gazed out on the water. Darren lay down and put his sunglasses on. I looked at him and lay down next to him. I just lay there and watched him. He smiled and looked at me, “What is it?” he asked. “Uh, nothing, I just really like your sunglasses.” I said and looked up at the sky. I could feel his eyes on me; he was just looking at me. I sat up and looked out on the water, it was so beautiful.

We sat on the beach for a long time, but when the sun started going down we decided to go get something to eat. I was starting to feel hungry anyway. We went into a nice restaurant and had dinner, it was so romantic, but it was nothing serious, just two friends having dinner. After we finished eating, he drove me home. We sat in the car for a while before we got out, and he followed me to the door. Before I walked in, we looked at each other in silence. “I had a really great day, thank you”, he said with a smile. “Me too. I hope we can do it again some other time” 

“With pleasure” 

I smiled. “Well, I’ll see you, goodnight”. I reached for the door handle, but before I got a chance to open the door, he took my hand. 

“Goodnight” he said, and gently kissed my cheek. Then he turned around and walked to his car. I just stood there, completely frozen and looked at him. Did Darren Criss just kiss my cheek? I went inside, and was immediately attacked by my mom. She wanted to know what we were doing. I told her everything, or well, not everything, because I didn’t tell her about the kiss, and she would never get to know either. I went to my room and lay down in my bed and just thought about the kiss. I closed my eyes and saw Darren, and I couldn’t help but smile. While I lay there, I got a text. I grabbed my phone and saw that it was from Darren. “Thanks for the wonderful day, see you tomorrow – Darren”

I smiled and answered. “Thank you too, I can’t wait to do it again. See you – Katrine”

The next morning I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing – it was Christopher, someone from glee club. He wanted to know if I wanted to hang out today, and I told him that I did. Vi agreed to meet at the café and afterwards we would take the bus to the big city to go shopping and have lunch. So I jumped out of bed, took a shower and got ready. I grabbed an apple and went to the door. As I was putting my shoes on, my mom came into the hall. “Where are you going?” she asked. I knew she was waiting for me to tell her that I was going out with Darren, but she wasn’t going to hear that today. “I’m going shopping with Christopher in the city” I told her and got up. She got her wallet out and gave me some money, and I just stood there holding them. “Why are you giving me money? I have money myself.” I said and gave her the money back. I grabbed my bag and went to the café. I knew why she gave me that money – she wanted me to hang out with Chris more (as he was called) so that I wouldn’t be with Darren. She was really starting to get on my nerves. I was too old to cry when they sold my horse, but I wasn’t old enough to choose my own friends. I didn’t want to think more about it, I just wanted to have a nice day with Chris. When I got to the café I saw Chris and Darren talking. I went up to them and hugged them. “A Latte” I told a young girl standing behind the bar. She smiled and nodded.

“Katrine, is it okay with you if Darren comes along?” Chris asked. I looked at Darren with a smile and nodded. I took my latte and we then walked towards the bus. It wasn’t that far, but it was a nice trip. When we got there we went into different stores. We bought a lot of stuff; I got (among other things) a pair of pink jeans, which I really liked. Chris got a really cool hat – and a lot of other things. Darren didn’t get as much as us, I guess he already had a lot, but he got a pair of sunglasses, of course. They were light blue. After shopping we went into a café and had lunch. We had a lot of fun and I had a great time with my two best friends, so it couldn’t have been any better. When we had finished in the city, Darren went home, and Chris and I went back to my place. I offered Darren to join us, but he had an arrangement with his parents, so he couldn´t come, unfortunately. 

Later that evenig, Chris and I were talking on my bed, and all of a sudden Chris brought up a new topic. “What´s going on between you and Darren” He asked and smiled.

“Nothing, we´re just friends?” I said and looked at the small teddy bear I had in my hand. 

“What’s wrong?” Chris asked, he could tell something was going on.

I looked at him. “I want to be more than friends, and I think he does as well, but my mom keeps him from making more of it.”

“Try to talk to her, Katrine. Tell her that you feel something more for him, try to tell her how you feel.” I smiled and got up and

went to speak to my parents.

“Mom, can I talk to you?” I asked and sat down next to her. She nodded and looked at me. “Mom, I have feelings for Darren, and I think he feels the same way about me.” I said and waited for her fit of rage, which never came.

“Katrine, your dad and I have talked about some things, one of them being that I have been way too hard on you and Darren. Maybe I just thought he was too old for my little girl, and that he would break your heart, traveling around, being an actor and all.” She was onto something, and I understood her, but couldn’t she just have told me? “How about you invite Darren over for dinner tomorrow night?” She asked. I smiled, nodded and gave her a hug. Then I went back to Chris and told him everything, and he was so happy for me.
