I woke up to my cell phone ringing. I groaned and sat up in my bed. I reached for my purple iPhone 5 on my nightstand and looked at the ID caller. Unknown number. I clicked the answer bottom and held the phone to my ear.
"Hello?" I said into the phone
"Hi Rebecca!" Said a very familiar preppy voice on the other end.
"Oh hi Vanessa. What's up?" I asked still at little groggy from just waking up.
"Did I wake you up? If I did I'm so sorry-" She began rambling so I quickly stopped her.
"No no it's okay Vanessa! I had to get up anyway. Don't sweat it," I assured her.
"Oh okay! I was just calling to ask if you wanted to hang out today? I know I just meet you yesterday but I really want to get to know you!" She said nervously.
"No it's really okay Vanessa. And I would love to hang out with you today!" I said and got out of bed.
"Great! What do you say about, 1pm at the diner just down the street from the salon?" I asked as I walked into the bathroom. I nodded but realised she couldn't see me.
"Yeah that sound lovely Vanessa. I'll see you there bye," I said and hung up after she said her goodbyes. I looked at the clock and saw it was 11am. That gives me enough time to get ready and still be there in time.
I was about to walked out the front door when Selena stopped me.
"Where are you going?" She asked me as she walked by the door. I followed her into the kitchen and sat in one of the island chairs.
"I'm just seeing a friend I meet yesterday," I said and looked at her. She was wearing a pair of denim short shorts and a blouse with flowers on it. Very cute.
"Oh that sounds nice. I'm not gonna hold you. You go Rebecca," she said while making what seems to be lunch. I nodded and walked to the front door. I was about to walk out when I heard Selena say my name.
"Rebecca?" Selena asked trying to catch my attention.
"Yeah?" I asked looking at her.
"Be careful okay? Some people aren't what they seems like," she said. I just nodded and walked out the door, closing it behind me. I didn't know what she meant so I just ignored it, continuing my day.
I arrived to the diner Vanessa texted me and walked inside. I was a cozy little diner. I was cute. I spotted her in a booth near the back. I walked up to her and greeted her.
"Hey Vanessa how are you doing?" I asked as I sat down opposite her. She looked up from her phone and smiled at me.
"Hi Rebecca. I'm good what about you?" She asked as she put her phone into her purse.
"I'm good thanks," I said and took out my light jacket. I don't know why I put it on, it's like 23 degrees outside. I put it in my oversized handbag and was suddenly glad I has chosen that bag.
"So what do you want to do?" I asked.
"I don't know really. I just thought we could get to know each other a little bit more," she said.
And that's exactly what we did. I learned we have the same favourite colour, that she's originally from England and that she has 3 younger sisters. She is such a sweet girl but I still have Selena's comment in my mind. It's nagging me. What does she meant with that? Could it be the fact that some people only wants to be friends with me because of Selena?
We talked for about 2 more hours before I decided that I had to leave.
There is something off about Vanessa. She always tried to put Selena into the conversation. I mean, Selena's my sister but that doesn't mean that I want to talk about her all the time. Famous or not. I just have a feeling, that what Selena said might be true about Vanessa.
And then there's the thing with the letter I got the other day. I was almost shitting my pants as I walked out of the diner and towards my car. I'm terrified.
