The Birthday Wish


3. Chapter 2: My New Protector

           Okay so I woke up this morning to a very bizarre dream. Ed and I were sitting together at school and he was telling me how beautiful I am (which is not something someone would say to me). “Sally you’re very beautiful in your own special way. That’s why I have to ask you this...” I was trying to avoid this by asking him “How was your weekend?” and “So what are you doing for Christmas break?” But none of these questions were answered. He kept talking as if what I asked was never said. “Sally...” he continued “I wanted to ask you in front of everyone here at school. Would you come with me to Winter Formal?” I was in complete and total shock. I had no idea what to say to him. When I spoke I couldn't feel any words coming out but I felt my lips moving. Then all of a sudden I jumped out of bed.

            I couldn't believe the dream I just had. Then out of the blue I got a text from Max saying ‘I miss you’. This meant just as friends right? I replied “I miss you too” with a smiley face. I really wanted to tell him that I loved him but I didn't want anything to go wrong between us as friends. I got out of bed after I had finished replying to Max and started to get ready for school. I knew that I had to dress nicely to impress Ed but since when was I  dressing to impress someone. I didn't realize I could fall for someone I just met. I would never dress like this for Max. He liked me for who I was not what I wore. When I got to school Ed had been waiting for me in front where he knew I would see him. I walked up to him “Good morning Ed.” I said with a smile.

           He looked at me as if he had seen a ghost. “Ed? Are you okay?” “What? No yea I’m fine.” He looked at me like I was a super model. I don’t know why I didn't see it before but he never looked at me like that. We started walking towards class and he kept getting close to me. It was like he wanted to be more then friends. He kept touching my hand as if it was a sign for me to hold his hand. I didn't know what to think of the whole situation. I did like him but there was still someone on my mind. “Sally...” I heard I didn't realize I had completely zoned out, “Could I ask you something?” It had seemed like my dream was about to become reality. I had this feeling he was going to ask me to Winter Formal. “Yea sure what is it Ed?” He paused before he could figure out how to phrase his words. “Sally, would you go out with me?”

           I couldn't believe what was going on. We were in the hall way where all the football players and cheerleaders were. Everyone was staring I didn't know what I was going to say to him. He looked at me and I quickly replied “Um...Ed I hardly know you. Are you sure this is what you want?” “Sally if I wanted someone else would I be asking you out on a date?” “No. But...” he interrupted me “No buts Sally. I just want a straight answer.” I stood in front of the entire football team and cheer leading squad trying to figure out what to say. “Sally?” “Yes Ed, my answer is yes.” Ed was so happy that I said yes but I still had the text from Max fresh in my mind. Ed was always close to me, I have to admit I loved having him next to me. We sat at lunch together and even sat next to each other in class. He made me feel protected just like Max did.

           I had just finished gym and I headed towards the end of the hallway when all of a sudden I hear my phone ring. It was Max! I quickly answered the phone. “Hello?” “Hey Sally! How are you? I really miss you.” I could hear the sadness in his voice. “Hi Max. I’m doing fine thanks. I miss you too! How's New York?” “Not that great. I miss all my friends.” “Yea everyone here misses you too! To tell you the truth it’s not the same without you.” I didn't know whether to tell him that I met someone or not. I didn't want to break his heart. “You always know how to make me smile Sally.” I hear the bell ring. “Well I better get going I will text you later when I get home from school okay…” “Okay Sally. Talk to you later.” “Love you Max.” I couldn't believe what I had just said. Until I hear him say “Love you too Sally, bye!” A lot of things go rushing through my mind. But the only person I had on my mind was Ed. I didn't realize how fast I had fallen for him, and I've only known him for 2 days, I don’t know if I could ever replace my best friend but Ed comes extremely close to bumping Max down to number 2 .
