It's been two weeks since I've seen her and I'm just so excited to see her again. You see, I didn't tell her I was coming back before I go to New York. I wanted to surprise her. I know she's in school at the moment, but at noon, I'm gonna surprise her big time. I told her friends, so they know and not her. I hope they don't ruin it. Then it really wouldn't be a surprise. Plus, I dyed my hair a few days ago and I want her opinion. I sighed as I looked at myself in the mirror.
I sighed in relief, finishing my history work I missed. There were a lot of notes I missed on the French Revolution, Hitler, and all that stuff. I missed three tests and midterms, but my teacher told me not to worry about it. He basically told me to get the notes I missed and get caught up. I finished the work I missed in class because we had a substitute. I sighed ands looked at my phone. Still no messages from Justin. I sighed and went on Twitter. No messages or tweets from him, either. I sighed. Is he mad at me?
Ms. Wilson: Okay, everyone. You may disperse into your groups to work on your lines.
Sky, Tori and I went to the back of the auditorium where we normally rehearse our lines. We're doing our own version of Romeo and Juliet. In our version, Juliet runs away to find Romeo. Her father fins out and decides on a search party for her. When they find her, she's with Romeo and it goes from there. It's high school, though. It's like in the present with guns and hand-to-hand combat. No sword fights or poison. The lead roles, which are Romeo and Juliet, are played by me and this other kid. Ms. Wilson, our theatre teacher, wants the kissing scenes to be real. Of course, I don't want to because I have a boyfriend and I want to be kissing my boyfriend, not some random theatre kid. Tori and Sky are my friends who want me to go with another guy, but I refuse to listen to them.
I sighed, reviewing my lines.
I'm tired of waiting now. I got out of my car and headed for the school building. I know I'm supposed to wait until lunch, but I can't wait any longer. I need to see her. I put my hood up so no one would see my face as I walked into the school. I can't have teenage girls throwing themselves at me. I walked into what seemed like the front office. A lady walked up to me.
?: Can I help you?
Me: I'm a visitor and I wanted to see Dawn Johnson.
She looked at the computer, then back at me.
?: She's in the auditorium. Can I get your name?
Me: Jason Matthews.
I use that name for whenever I go out in public. She wrote it down on a sticker with the word 'visitor' on it. She handed it to me.
?: We'll have security take you to the auditorium, Mr. Matthews.
Me: Thank you.
I put the sticker on as security came up to me.
?: Let's go.
They led me out of the front office and down the hall. I finally get to see my girl again.
Just as we were about to do the scene where Romeo and Juliet meets, the double doors opened, revealing two security guards and someone with a gray hoodie covering their face.
?: Miss Johnson, you have a visitor.
With that, they left him standing there. Once they were out of sight, the person showed his face. He had dark brown hair and light brown eyes. Wait, what? I took in his features, my eyes growing wide.
She ran off the stage and towards me. I smiled when she jumped into my arms. I wrapped my arms around her waist, picking her up and spinning her around in the air. When I put her down, I noticed people were staring at us. Ignoring them, I pulled out of the hug, looking down at my beautiful girlfriend. She cupped my cheeks with her hands as my hands still remained on her waist.
Dawn: I missed you so much.
Me: I missed you, too, baby.
With that, I leaned in, capturing her lips in mine. She smiled, kissing back as she wrapped her arms around my neck.
We both pulled away, looking at the lady who I suppose was her drama teacher. She stood there with her arms crossed over her chest.
?: Who is this?
Dawn: My boyfriend.
?: If he's gonna be here, then he needs to be in the house while you're on stage.
Dawn: Actually, can he be Romeo? I don't feel comfortable kissing another guy.
?: Fine. But just this one time.
She smiled and turned to look at me.
Me: What just happened?
Dawn: I'm Juliet in Romeo and Juliet and I have to kiss another guy.
She rolled her eyes.
Dawn: I asked her if you could be Romeo and she said it was okay.
Dawn: I'll give you the script.
She gave me a quick kiss, then ran off. I chuckled. I love this girl so much.
I handed him the script as we both walked onto the stage.
Ms. Wilson: We don't have all day, Miss Johnson.
Justin stood in front of me, holding my script in his hand. He looked at it, then at me.
I chuckled, nodding for him to start.
Justin: I just noticed how beautiful you are.
His hand caressed my cheek.
Justin: How your eyes shine in the moonlight and how you dance with grace.
Me: Why do you come here?
He took my hands in his.
Justin: I wanted to know who you are.
I lowered my head.
Me: You would hate me if I ever told you.
I felt his hand under my chin, lifting my head up.
Justin: I could never hate you.
He pulled me closer to him.
Justin: Kiss me.
Me: But what if someone sees?
Justin: Who cares?
He cupped my cheeks in his hands and started leaning in. When he lips met mine, I could feel sparks again. He pulled away, looking into my eyes. I was pulled away by Sky, who plays one of my friends.
Sky: Juliet, it's time to go.
I nodded, looking at Justin.
Me: Until we meet again.
She pulled me away, leaving him standing there.
Ms. Wilson: And scene.
I got out of Sky's grip and walked back over to Justin. He wrapped his arms around my waist.
Me: Good job, Justin.
?: I'll say.
We turned and saw Ms. Wilson looking at us.
Ms. Wilson: You could be Cameron's understudy.
Conner: I thought I was Cameron's understudy.
Ms. Wilson: Or even play Romeo.
Cameron: I'm Romeo.
Me: Well, I'd rather kiss my boyfriend than some guy in my theatre class.
I wrapped my arms around his neck.
Ms. Wilson: We'll talk about this later.
Just then, the bell rang for lunch.
Ms. Wilson: We'll do this tomorrow.
We all walked off the stage, Justin's fingers intertwined with mine.
Justin and I sat down outside while everyone else was inside. The first thing I noticed was his dyed hair.
Me: You dyed your hair.
He ran his fingers through his hair.
Justin: Do you like it?
Me: Yeah. It looks good on you.
I noticed it was getting longer, too.
Me: Soon enough, you're gonna have to change the style of it.
Justin: I will. In March.
Me: You planned all of that out, didn't you?
Me: You're special.
Justin: So are you.
Me: That's why we're together.
Me: Not to sound rude, but...why agree you here?
Justin: I only needed to be in Miami for two weeks. I didn't know until you left. So when I found out, I was gonna tell you, but then I thought I should surprise you.
Me: Well, you succeeded.
Justin: Glad I did.
Me: So how long are you gonna be here?
Justin: Well, we're leaving to go to New York the week of Valentine's Day, right?
Justin: Until then.
I smiled and wrapped my arms around him.
Me: I'm glad I get to be around you.
Justin: Same here, babe.
Just then, the school bell rang. I pulled away, getting up from the table.
Me: I gotta go to fourth period.
He got up from the table.
Justin: I'll pick you up after school?
Justin: I'll bring back some McDonald's.
I smiled, giving him a kiss.
Me: Love you.
Justin: Love you, too, baby.
He gave me a kiss before I ran off to class.
