It's Thursday night. Logan's just dropped me off at home and, to be honest, our date was the only thing on my mind. I was worried. I've never been on a date before. I didn't know where we were going. I didn't know what to wear.
Miranda knocked on my door and slowly walked into my room. "Hello. Logan told me about your guys' date tomorrow and I think it's great! I was wondering... If... Uh..." She looked nervous. "You wanted to go shopping for something to wear?"
"I'd love to."
She looked surprised. "R-really?"
I smiled. "Yeah. Give me five minutes and I'll be ready."
She agreed and I put my shoes on. I walked into Austin's room. "Bud, we're gonna go shopping. It's already seven so I won't be here to tell you goodnight, so I'll say it now. Love you." I kissed his forehead and left with Miranda.
The car ride to the mall was quiet. We didn't say much, but I figured it would get better when we started shopping. Most girls like to do that, right?
She asked where I wanted to go and I thought of the girliest and cutest place I could think of; Forever 21.
As we were shopping we were starting to get into small conversation. "At school, I met this girl. Her name is Bradley. She seems pretty cool."
"Making some new friends? That's great! You should invite her over or do something with her."
"Yeah... I should..."
"Hm?" I didn't look up from the shirt rack I was looking at.
"Why did you come?"
"You offered before I could ask."
I sensed her smiling.
"Plus, you've got more money than me." I laughed and she joined in.
Eventually, I found the perfect outfit and I even helped Miranda find one for a date night she and Blake were having on Saturday, which means I get to watch Austin.
We got home just I'm time; Logan was FaceTiming me for his nightly singing.
When I answered, he was smiling. "I'm feeling really good about this one. You ready?"
I smiled and nodded.
He began playing what sounded like Summer Lovin' from Grease. "You're insecure/ don't know what for/ you're turning heads when you walk through the door/ don't need make up/ to cover up/ bein' the way that you are is enough/ everyone else in the room can see it/ everyone else but you."
I smiled. "That's so cute! Who's that by?"
"One Direction." He smiled.
He gasped. "You don't know who they are?!"
"No, you idiot, I was asking because I know who they are!"
He laughed at my sarcasm. "A boy band."
"How'd you go from The Beatles to them?"
"I'd rather not answer..." He said awkwardly.
"Oh come on," I complained.
"Oh..." I said awkwardly. "Well, uh, hey, I gotta get some beauty rest for tomorrow... Good night."
"Good night, my love."
And with that, the conversation was over and I was left thinking about Norma and Logan, together.
