9. 10 Years Before
I Fell In Love With The Boy Across The Aisle
10 Years Before
"I HAVE A DATE WITH JADE!" he screamed
It felt like the breath had been sucked out of me and I was dying. I pang of jealousy filled my stomach as I looked at my best friends emerald eyes. Jade? He was going out with Jade?
"W-what?" I say in a hushed tone
"I am going on a date with Jade." Harry repeated a lot less calmly
"But..why?" I scramble around for words
"I don't know, she's hot." he said simply, shrugging his shoulders like it was no big deal. But it was a big deal! A BIG ONE!
"You asked her out?" my voice barely came out, my body slightly shaking
Why was I feeling this way? So sad.
"Ya. Now can we stop talking about this! I just want to forget about it for now." he spoke
'I don't want to stop talking about this!' I want to shout at my best friend but, I didn't. I couldn't. The fact that my best friend was about to go on a date with a friend of mine's couldn't wrap around my head or the fact that I feel sad. Why the heck do I feel sad?
"Earth to Paulina? You there?" Harry's male voice brings me back to reality
"Ya sorry." I mumble
"Good! Now let's go to the bakery!" he exclaimed happily, as if he never told me he was going out with someone I didn't want him to know
<4 Days Later>
"It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark"
"Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,
"Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight" I scream along with the radio as I continue to dance around the kitchen, trying to clean up the mess I made from attempting to make a batch of cookies
Putting the bowl covered in left over batter, the sound of loud knocking filled my house coming from the front door. "COMING! JUST ONE SECOND!" I scream as I put a little of soap into the dirty bowl
Filling up the bowl with water till the edge, the knocking appeared again this time louder than before. "My god, some people." I mutter to myself, walking over to my front door
"What do you w-" I couldn't finish before a familiar pair of green eyes meet mine
"Harry? What are you doing here?" I could tell curiosity was written all over my face, a smile too
It was when I looked at the rest of him when I saw the tuxedo. Black dress pants, shoes and jacket. Along with a white shirt and a rose in the pocket, dressed my best friend. It was six in the afternoon, why was he dressed like that?
"I'm going on my date with Jade remember?" he fumbled with the buttons on his jacket
The smile immediately left my face, remembering the past few days of Harry talking constantly of Jade.
I can't wait till our date!
Jade is so hot in those pants!
I really fancy Jade.
I don't know what to do for the date. Have any ideas?
Here's an idea, don't go on the date! Cancel it with that...thing!
After finding out about Harry and Jade's date I hadn't been talking to Jade. She'd try to stop me in the hallways of our school but, I'd keep walking and ignore her calls. Even at lunch I'd just have a book in hand, making sure no one would talk to me, including Jade.
"Oh." is all I could manage to say
"Do you think I look good? Do you think it's too much?" Harry asked, moving back and forth on the sole's of his feet
"Do you think Jade will like it? Should I change into something else? Do yo-" he continued until I managed to cut him off
"Harry you look fine, absolutely stunning." I state the truth
He did look good, his signature curls were curled to perfection and his outfit made him look handsome. It was just the Jade part that bothered me. I DON'T WANT HIM TO GO ON A DATE WITH HER.
"Thanks, you really think so?" he smiled, dimple in view
"Yes." I huff, taking one of my hands and running them through his curls
"Hey! No touching the curls!" he slapped my hand out of the way
"Sorry, sorry!" I laugh at my best friend
He sticks his pink tongue out at me before talking again. "I got to go. I need to pick up Jade. Thank you Mrs.Styles." he wrapped his arms around me, pulling me into a hug
"You're welcome. Go have fun Mr.Montgomery." I lie, hugging him back
Pulling away, I watch him walk away. My mouth wanting to shout 'DON'T GO!' but my brain stopping it from doing so. I didn't even asked my best friend what he had planned for his first date, but I didn't want to.
The fact that he was going on a date with Jade already made me sick.
The thought of what might happen during that time made me sicker.
