16. Hide And Seek
Life was finally starting to settle here and I was starting to feel happy. I gave up all hope of Justin and knowing that it'd be unlikely to see him again. I met a couple nice people, new friends to trust and people to have fun with. I tried not to think about my last life. It was completely different from who I am now. I think of my past as a nightmare, just a bad dream that you couldn't escape until you woke up. I am finally waking up now and am headed for good dreams. I knew that I wasn't fully over Justin but I wanted to give dating a try again so I could see how hard it would be to return back into the dating life. I don't want anything from Toronto to hold me back from new opportunities. The date I had tonight was with this guy named Kyle. Kyle had short dark brown hair that he gelled up in the front and very green eyes. He was very good looking which made me think this dating thing would be easier than I thought. Don't get me wrong, I loved Justin with everything I had, but forgetting about someone is easy when you know they don't care. If Justin and I were still friends there is no way I'd be moving on but I really have no choice and I don't want to spend 1 more night crying over what could have been. Kyle was coming to get me around 7 to go watch a movie. It was a simple date and I tried to pick something Justin and I haven't done. Justin didn't like going to the movies together because you just sit there awkwardly without talking which made sense. Tonight Spencer would be back in the game.
Oh Justin was right. Movies are really awkward. Like if you look at each other you kinda just stare at each other and can't say anything and then someone has to turn away which makes it more awkward. Then he tried to hold my hand but it was greasy from the popcorn butter so I rejected his hand and then what topped it off was I burped after drinking my large pop. Oh man what a disaster. We got out of the movie and both just kinda laughed.
"Wanna hangout so we can actually talk?" -Kyle said raising his eyebrows at me.
He was pretty adorable.
"Sure." -I replied as we got in his car.
We ended up watching another movie at my house but at least we could talk without angry viewers throwing popcorn at our heads telling us to be quiet. I actually got to know quite a lot about Kyle, his favorite color is blue, he plays hockey, he's intelligent, and we have the same birthday. I was actually starting to feel better and starting to clear my head of anything Justin.
"I'm gonna go to the bathroom," -Kyle said as he went into the other room.
He really had some sort of effect on me. I don't know. He really made me forget and I liked that. Plus he was the exact opposite of Justin. I was flicking through the TV channels when I heard the stairs moving. Maybe it was my aunt coming home or a neighbor. The footsteps stopped right in front of the door. I heard the unknown clear their throat. I knew exactly who was on the other side of that door. No other than Justin Bieber.
