3. The Weekend of Never Ending Calls

If only I had something gray and squishy between my ears. I would've known that the day I had given Jessie permission to give Matt my number was going to be the day that I would look back on while hitting my head against the wall and saying dummy over and over again. Because, you guessed it, he thought he was going to be holding my hand at a fancy restaurant the next day. Well, as you know, that is definitely not going to happen...at all! So, he called me nine times in one hour! Nine times! I called Jessie, it was the only thing I could do. But when I dialed her number on my Nokia, his name popped up on the screen and I was already going down to press with button and ding dong here pressed the pick up button when Matt called. This was great...just great.

"Hello?" I asked nervously, wanting to put the phone down, scream, and run away.

"Hey. I've been trying to call you...are you okay?" he asked.

"Yeah, I'm fine!" I said, trying to sound enthusiastic.

"I was calling to tell you the truth...I'm not really that into you. I just thought that you deserved to know that" he said.

Wait, what? I thought. He acted like he liked me so much and then he tries to tell me that he doesn't...I don't think so. Wait, why am I upset? This means I'm off the hook, right?

"Thank gosh!" I said, a little too loud so that he could hear.

"What the heck is that supposed to mean?" Matt's voice sounded angry now. I could only think uh-oh.

"Well, I'm not into you either. I never have been." I said, trying to keep my dignity.

"Then why did you act like it?" He asked.

"Jessie can put a lot of pressure on a girl." I chuckled.

Matt laughed. "Yeah, so can Sam."

"We'll, I'm glad we got this cleared up. I gotta go, but I'll see you at school tomorrow."

"Bye" he said.

And I was off the hook to love whoever I wanted. Matt and I were friends, nothing more.
