"Alex, are you going to Prom?" My BFF, Kate, asked over the phone.
"No, I don't have a boy to go with and y'all know I hate shopping." I replied, shaking my head.
"It's a little under 4 months! You have to find someone and go!" My other BFF, Maddie, said.
"Y'all know I fantasize a lot. I need to come to reality. I need to face life the way it is.... I just need to move out after graduating and start a new life." I sighed.
"You can't see, but I'm rolling my eyes. Alex, you are such a downer! We know you fantasize! It's just you being you. You need to live life. Have a little fun... Maybe try to meet someone new." Maddie said.
"Easy for you to say, since the beginning of grade 10, boys have been asking you out everyday! How many ask me out? Let's see.... None! And who could forget our first dance! As for you, Kate... You have a loving boyfriend... As do you, Maddie... Yes, I want true love, but I'm happy the way I am!" I said, trying to sound calm.
"Sorry, my mom needs me. See ya." Kate said and hung up. After that, Maddie and I hung up.
I wondered downstairs. My baby brother was sleeping upstairs, so I couldn't punch the wall, it would wake him up. My mom and dad were in the basement and I was bored. I left a note on the table saying I was going for a walk. I held my iPod with me and listened to 'Magic' by One Direction. As I walked, I ran into someone, causing me to fall back.
"I am sooo sorry! I should have been paying more attention." I said.
"It's alright... I guess neither of us were paying attention." Said a boy with an Irish accent.
I looked up at his out stretched hand as he smiled a bit. He was drop dead gorgeous! I took his hand and he helped me up. I looked down at my feet and pushed back the bit of my long hair that always covered my bad eye, the right, behind my ear. I like totally melted when I looked at him.
"I was heading over to get something to eat, would you like to come?" He asked.
"Sure." I said, trying to act cool.
"I like your hair. The purple looks good in it."
"So, tell me about yourself."
"Well, my name is Alex May Ryder. I hate girly things, healthy things, and shopping. I love animals, hugs, food, candy, carrots, music, guy stuff, singing, dancing, reading, vloging, ranting, danger, and I like to perform sometimes. I'm a little shy, I've been trying to find true love since I was small, I'm a bit of a daredevil, I'm usually friendly, just don't piss me off, I'm fearless, and I love only 3 bands... Green Day, Skillet, and One Direction... I love black, blue, aqua, green, and dark purple. I'm 18, and my birthday is September 19th. Oh! I'm really competitive and I love sports! I'm kinda lonely, I don't have a boyfriend, but I have great friends! They support me, and I'm happy with my life!"
"Oh wow... If you like food, we'll get along well... Oh, and I'm Niall."
"Be I could eat more food than you." I smirked.
"I doubt that!"
"Is that a challenge?"
I laughed a bit.
*2 Hours Later*
Niall and I had quite a bit in common.
"So, what's your number, I'd like to hang out more." He said. I gave him my number and he gave me his. We went our own ways and I headed home. I just ate, but I'm like... ALWAYS hungry. For how much I eat, I'm actually thin.
*The Next Morning*
It was Saturday, I always sleep in, but today, I was awoken by a text.... From Niall.
Hey.... Sorry if I wake you up... I would ask you this in person, but I'm really nervous just typing... I was wondering if you wanted to go on a date tonight...
I read it over a few times, just to be sure I was actually not dreaming. A super hot guy is to nervous to ask me out?! I almost fainted on my bed. I like totally DIED! I sent him a text back.
Me: Ya! :) I'd love to! And you did wake me up, but I wanted to get up early anyway.
Niall: *Sighs in relief* Awesome! I was afraid you'd say no! I'll pick you up at 6! Dress nice, not that you would need to.
OK, I like DIED on the spot. I told him my address and called Kate. I added Maddie.
"Early much." They said.
"Sorry, but guess what!" I squeaked.
"I'm going on a date with a super cute boy! We met yesterday on the street when I ran into him! We ended up going to get something to eat. This morning, he sent me a text! He said he was too nervous to ask me out in person! His name is Niall!"
"OMG! That's awesome!"
We laughed at how they spoke at once the whole time. My little brother started crying. I groaned. He was 4, but I wish he couldn't talk. Once you walk into his room to get him, he talks and talks... Kinda like I do! It's at least cute when I do it. I have interesting things to talk about.
"Girl! I don't care if you don't want to, but if I have to, I'll go to your house, drag you down the stairs and to the mall! You need a new outfit!" Kate said. I rolled my eyes.
"If you want me to go, I have to go in my pyjamas." I said.
"Yay! Now you have to come drag me."
"Alright, I'll be there with Maddie in 10."
"KK! Bye! Good luck!" We hung up.
She was going to have to work her ass of trying to get me out of the house.
