Chapter 13 (Radio Tickets)
It has been 3 hours since Selena and Demi won the contest. I was proud. Proud of both of them, my best friend and my new friend. After we had dropped Demi to her house, Selena and I decided to get ready for bed since today was a busy yet exciting day. It was 8:23 PM. Yet here I am on my bed thinking about everything that just happened since school started.
"That's what I thought" she said with a smirk on her face knowing that I wouldn't deny $2,000. I mean better than nothing right?. As the three of us headed for the car, I whined.
"Hey can I drive?" to Selena.
"Um no, my car. Me drive." she said with her eyebrows all scrunched up.
"Pleaseeee?" I whined again. "I let you drive my car last time." she finally took her car keys out and I jumped for joy letting her shook her head in a playful way. As I entered the drivers seat, the smell of Selena's scent filled my nose letting me observe her lovely scent.
"It smells so good." I mumbled, receiving a look from the two of them. Demi and Selena.
"Huh?" Demi asked giving me a weird look.
"Nothing" I said as I turned on the ignitions. Best to keep my thoughts to myself instead of Selena knowing. Knowing that I had feelings for her. I know I told her that I had feelings for her the first time her lips were on mine by accident but that was when I wasn't really sure but now, I was sure. Sure that Selena was the one, the one that I would spend my whole life with. I want to grow old with her. My thoughts were disturbed when Demi spoke.
"Hey Harry is it ok if you could drop me back home tonight, my cousin is visiting me." She said as she broke the silence that was surrounding us.
"Sure!" I said as I made a left turn. It was a 3 minute drive to Demi's house since she lived close to us.
"Listen Demi, I had a really awesome day with you. The both of you, Harry, you and I. As what Harry would recall, were 'The Three Musketeers'" she said, I smiled at her for agreeing with the name that I had suggested us to be. She smiled back with me along with Demi. I drove past Demi's house since there was a taxi blocking my way so I just made my way to the back of her house. Demi gathered all of her stuff and slipped out of her seat out the car door.
"Thanks Selena! Thank you Harry! I had a great day, no Awesome, no amazing, no well you get the point." I laughed and shrugged my shoulders telling her I didn't get what she said. Selena continued to laugh but stopped to say something
"I'll text you later Demi, see you Tom." She waved and closed the car door letting me drive away with a beep from the car horn telling her goodbye.
"Hey Harry can we go to the bank, I gotta make the cheque into cash so I could give it to you." I nodded at her order and drove straight to the bank. BMO Bank. (A/N Bank of Montreal. Couldn't think of anything else so sorry)
As we got there, Selena told me to stay inside the car to keep the car warm since it was cold outside. II agreed to her and turned the radio on while She shut the car door. The radio had a song on that was about to end, I wasn't really familiar with it. As the song ended, a lady spoke.
Radio : Love The Hunger Games, then you will love Catching Fire. The new movie by the same director as The Hunger Games. This Friday there will be a meet and greet with the cast on the day of the releasing of the new movie Catching Fire. Tickets are going out fast. Better hurry there will be only 10 tickets left by the end of the day. They will be available at the ticket booth downtown at Notre Dame Theater or call 1800-227-2827.
Yet again they will be available at the ticket booth downtown at Notre Dame Theater or call 1800-227-2827.
See you there!
As The lady who was announcing about the Catching Fire Releasing Day and about the tickets, I realized that I needed to 'get' those tickets before they go sold out. Getting those tickets may be a challenge but will be the best present that Selena will ever receive well from me. I grabbed a piece of paper and pen and wrote down the number. '18002272827'. As I was finishing writing down the number, I heard the car door close shut.
"Whose number is that?" I heard a angelic voice slipping through my shoulders into my ear. I looked up to my right and saw a view of a cute but curious little girl talking to me. I began to get nervous but I hidden it with light smile. I got to think quick, I knew lying to Selena is bad but it would lead her to the best day ever.
"Um it's the sleep country one, I got it from the radio." I said confidently.
"Oh what's is it for?" she asked as she lightly grabbed the piece of paper from my hands.
"Ah, It's for mom. You know she works all day from morning to midnight. I'm was thinking of buying her a new pillow for her back since she was telling me that when she wakes up in the morning, she always get back pain." I said. Her smile began to brighten up.
"Oh really? that's sweet of you to buy a pillow for Aunt Anne. I promise she will love it." she said as she raised up her hand while she got to the 'I Promise' part. I nodded as I drove out of the parking lot, going home.
"Oh and here's your $2,000." she said as she went inside her purse grabbing a envelope that was full of cash.
"Thanks" I replied as I stopped into a stop light. Phew that was close! Now I have to buy mom a pillow so that what I was saying about the phone number was true.
I groaned as I sat up from my bed. All of these thoughts just makes my want to throw them and start again. As I got off my bed, I looked to the mirror that was in front of me. My messy curls falling onto my face making it hard to see the mirror. I have a small pimple on my left jawline,I mean who would love a boy like me. I'm not perfect at all actually, even though Selena thinks I'm perfect. I'm not. I'm just plain old Harry Styles living a boring life here in Canada.(A/N Sorry had to put Canada because I didn't know how and what happens in London so this story setting is in Canada, not knowing the province or city yet but will see.) I looked at the clock. 8:26 PM.
I started to pace back and forth when suddenly I thought of something. I need a reminder right now. I took a sticky note from my drawer and quickly took a pen and wrote down my reminder. 'Take Selena out for the best date ever!' I wrote down as I took the next thing I saw. The Catching Fire Novel, I grabbed it and placed it onto Chapter 28. Yes 28, that was the day that I was going to take Selena out for dinner perhaps. I looked at the clock again. 8:29 PM. Crap. When I get there, all the tickets will be sold out and I won't be ale to make Selena's dreams come true.
I ran to my closet and took out a pair of black jeans and a white shirt. I rapidly putted them on, grabbed my car keys and my phone and ran out the door. As I closed it slowly but quickly, I turned around to find a girl with pajamas on and carrying a white fluffy pillow. She looked confused but rather scared.
Crap I'm caught. Think of Something Haz or your toast. Done and won't be able to complete your task.
