My Job To Love
Chapter Two : Mr.Blind Date
"OHMYGOSH, IT STARTING!" I shriek as my caramel popcorn flew in every direction possible.
Just before it started, my best friend, Sophie, came running in from her room as fast as lightning. Her eyes looking wider than I've ever see it
"Scooch over!" She slapped my arm motioning me to give her some space. I chuckle at that because both of us are seriously, seriously in love with Doctor Who.
The Christmas Special just came out in America since Doctor Who is from the UK.
Sophie and and I shared an apartment. An apartment with two bedrooms, one guest room, a kitchen, one bathroom next to the kitchen and two private bathrooms in each of our bedrooms.
And no, we are not those mean b-tches that you see every time in Glee or even in a regular high school because Soph and I are sophisticated girls
- or at least we try to be.
Sophie's family is filthy rich. Mrs. Dryden is the most successful and famous Dermatologist in the state while Mr. Dryden is the CEO of Bean's, the best coffee shop known to Americans here in the country. With many branches that spread out through the country and a few in Europe and Asia.
Don't get me wrong, the Dryden family is the sweetest and most kind family I've ever met. The reason Sophie is living with me is because she wants to be independent. Trust me, she's great.
I stare at the screen. There was a syllurian with a girl named Clara. Syllurians are lizard type humans. - wait scratch that, I meant aliens.
"We'll put you to the test." The syllurian said. "You must only answer using one word. Sounds impossible, huh. Use your words wisely if you want to talk to the Doctor."
"Why are you here?"
"Curiosity of the snow."
"What do you want from him?"
"Why would he help you?"
"The Doctor is NOT kind. The Doctor doesn't help people, not anyone, not ever. Do you understand what I'm saying to you?"
IT'S GETTING INTENSE.
Clara hesitates, "No."
"He was different once, a long time ago. Kind, a hero even, saving worlds. But he suffered, now he prefers isolation to the possibility of pain's return."
My heart clench as she said that.
He prefers isolation to the possibility of pain's return.
It kept on repeating in my head. Maybe the Doctor and I do have a couple of similarities.
"Kindly choose a word on your understanding of this." The syllurian continued.
Finally, the syllurian gave in, "We are the Doctor's friends. We assist him in his isolation but that does not mean we approve of it. So, a test for you, explain the danger and why he should help you."
Clara leaned forward to burst out her problem, before the syllurian interrupted her, "but one word only."
"THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE!" I yelled as I threw some popcorn at the TV.
A flashback went into Clara's mind. 'The snow is not ordinary. They mirror our thoughts. The danger lies in my...' Clara thought.
I swear that both Soph's and my jaws dropped. Why? Because Pond is the surname of the Doctor's companion before he preferred isolation.
This is going to be one heck of an afternoon.
I squeal as it hit the end of the episode. That episode was friggin' cool. Like, no way.
I realized it was Sophie's phone. She picked it up and gushed.
I raised my eyebrow at her. She motioned me to shut up as she turned attention back to the call.
Josh. I smiled sheepishly at her. Josh is Sophie's boyfriend. They're so cute together. It's like Woody and Jesse from Toys Story!
"MmmHmm" Sophie mumbled.
"I think so"
"Sure! That sounds great!"
"Oh really?" She asked as she smirked at me.
"Okay then, I'll ask her"
"Bye! Love you too!" She said as she ended the phone call. She turned around and went to the kitchen. I followed her from behind.
"Yes?" Sophie asked.
"Aren't you going to tell me what you and your boobear talked about?" I asked, raising my eyebrow.
She rolled her eyes, "Just wear a formal dress. Josh will be here by 7 o'clock."
My eyes snapped open, "Sophie. I do not like Josh. He is YOUR boyfriend and you can't just-"
Sophie spit out her drink, "Whoa, hold on. Josh and you are NOT going on a date," I visibly relaxed, ", we're going on a double date." She continued as she walked towards to her room.
"Ohhh. -Wait what?! Oh hell no!" I screeched.
"I'm not taking 'NO' as an answer! Hurry up! You only have an hour and half to prepare!" She yelled before locking her door.
"Wait! With who?! At least tell me who I'm going with!" I cried out.
I just heard her laugh from her room.
I grumpily walked into my room. Grabbing my towel, I went in my bathroom to take a shower.
I check myself one last time.
I was wearing a blue dress with straps with cream coloured cardigan. The dress was a tight top but it flowed once it reached my hips. The dress touched my knees. I went for a natural look, so I didn't apply much make up. I only applied mascara, blush and a pink lip gloss. My curly brown hair was left flowing on my back. My beige heels aren't helping though. I bet I'll trip once I step out of this room.
I check my phone for the time which was on the table.
I went out to the living room, revealing a newly transformed Sophie.
"That's an awesome dress! You look pretty!" She squealed at me.
"Right back at ya'" I roll my eyes as I sit next to her.
"Who exactly is my date?" I asked her curiously
She laughed at my question. Was there something wrong? "Don't worry. You don't know him. Let's see who'll end up with a boyfriend tonight." She said as she winked.
I continued sitting there, trying to get her words to sink in. Once I got it, "NO WAY IN HELL AM I GETTING A BOYFRIEND TONIGHT BECAUSE-" I cried out. I turned around to see an amused looking Josh with Sophie standing next to him who was currently trying to suppress her laughter.
I quickly shut my mouth and bite my lip. I could feel the heat running to my cheeks. Well, that was embarrassing. They started laughing hysterically.
I cover my burning face with my hands, "Shut up." I muttered.
The laughter soon died suddenly, "Boyfriend?", an familiar voice said.
I KNOW THAT VOICE.
My eyes snapped to the guy who is now standing by Josh with a smirk.
I swear that I thought my eyes were gonna pop out from it's sockets. "You!" I exclaim.
Sophie raised her eyebrow, "You know each other?"
"Yes! I know him! He-He's-" I stutter, not believing my eyes.
"Your boyfriend?" Josh teased. Josh and Sophie laughed while HE just stood there with an amused face.
I tried to get his name, what was it again?! He was the guy from the diner! "He's the jerk I met today!" I exclaim as I point at him.
He pulled his innocent face out, "I don't know what you're talking about."
"It's probably someone who looks like him." Sophie suggested as she shrugged.
He nodded, "I'm Connor, Connor Rhodes. I am happy to meet you." He 'introduced', stretching his hand out for me for shake.
I rolled my eyes as I shaked it, "I'm Vanessa Kailey and I'm going to make your life a living hell."
Josh laughed, "Now, now Vanessa, that's not how you talk to your boyfriend."
I metally groaned. WHY ME?
Sophie nudged Josh, "We should probably go. Let's go guys!" She said before walking out with Josh.
I was going to trail behind them when Connor grabbed my wrist and pulled me back. "Try me." He whispered.
(A/N He was referring to when Vanessa said "I'm going to make your life a living hell.")
Help me, please.
Here you go guys!
A kind of long chapter compared to my other ones!
