13. She Went On A Date

Bittersweet Love - Part 12
Jody's POV

I hear the alarm clock ring. I open my eyes. The sun is shining through the window. I look at the clock. 6:30 am. I groan. I start lessons today, and it's so unfair, because Madison and Sarah only start classes in two weeks. At least I didn't have them everyday, just three times a week. But that was bad enough.

I finally force myself to get out of bed, and I go to the bathroom. I brush my hair and sigh. I never liked my hair. I was from Singapore, an Asian, so my hair was black. Madison and Sarah said it was dark brown. Same thing. My hair went a little past my shoulders, and my bangs went about half-way down my nose. My hair always curled out at the bottom for some reason, I hated that. I pulled it back into a ponytail, and put my purple glasses on. Another thing I hated. Wearing glasses.

I go downstairs and get myself a cab. I technically was allowed to drive, because the legal age for driving was sixteen in American, but it was eighteen in Singapore, so I decided to wait till I was eighteen.
I tell the driver the address of the college and he starts driving. I lean my head against the back of the seat and close my eyes. First class of the year. I had to do well. It was expected out of me.


'Madi! Sarah! Jules! I'm back!' I yell as I toss my bag onto the couch. Madison comes out and sits down on the couch next to me. 'Hey! How was the class?' I groan. 'Horrible. So horrible. I didn't get anything the professor was saying!'

Madison giggles a little. 'What's so funny?' I demand. She smiles at me. 'Nothing, it's just... Don't you think you're a little overreacting? It's the first class of the year. Give it some time.' I look at her. 'Is it tiring always being right?' 'Nope!' I smack her with a pillow and we have a mini pillow fight. Madison was awesome. Everyone's always saying she's so shy and quiet, but around me, and Sarah and Jules, she was talkative and fun. It just took some time to get to know her.

After about ten minutes of the pillow fight, we both calm down a little. 'Where's Jules and Sarah?' I ask. It doesn't seem like they were home. 'Sarah's at the hospital for a checkup on the anorexia thing, and Jules,' she pauses, while wagging the eyebrows, 'is on a date.' Whoa. That was fast. Here for a day and already dating people. I laugh and look at Madi. 'With who? Do we know the person?' She nods. My curiosity grew. I look at her expectantly but she looks back at me with wide, innocent eyes. 'Hmmm?' she looks at me. 'Madi! Who is it?' She laughs. 'I just wanted to torment you a little longer.' I smack her with a pillow. She hits the back of my head before continuing. 'Niall.'

Jules going out with Niall? Oh my gosh! I'm so happy for her. When I first knew her, before we were friends, I thought she was such a playgirl. All the guys in our grade liked her, and she just kinda played around with them all. But she's not like that anymore. I'm just glad she's found someone to make her happy. Wait. Hold on. I kick myself. It's their first date and I was already planning their marriage. Geez Jody!

I look at Madison. She grins at me. 'When is she gonna be back?' I ask. She looks at her watch. 'In an hour.' We both look at each other and get the same idea. 'We need details!' we scream. I felt like such a girly girl. But we weren't usually like that.

We sit there and talk about all sorts of random things. Madison was my best friend. Staying in Shanghai for about eight years, not many friends stayed for long. Sarah left two years after I knew her, but we always emailed and talked to each other, so we were really close. Madison had been there until a year before we moved to Ohio. We both moved her for college last year, so that was pretty awesome. Sarah's going to be starting college soon, and Jules was coming along in a month as well. My life was going pretty good. I had no major problems, just a few small ones, but I didn't talks about them much because I felt guilty feeling bad for myself when there were people out there much worse off than I was. But overall I didn't have much to complain about.

The hour passes relatively quickly, and soon Jules is home. She places her things on the dining table, Madison and I staring at her all the while.

'What?' she looks at us. I leap up and pull her onto the couch. 'So...' I say. She rolls her eyes at me. 'It was fun.' Is she serious? Uh-uh. She was not getting away that easily. I was determine to squeeze every last bit of detail out of her.
