I was making scrambled eggs and bacon when i hear a knock and the door open.
"Hey Jake." I said as he walked into the kitchen.
"That obvious?" He asked laughing.
"Yup." I said.
"I need some advice..." He said suddenly serious.
I stopped what i was doing and turned facing him.
"I don't know what to do about Scarlet, before she kissed me i never thought of her as more then a friend, shes like my sister. Now everything is weird, she doesn't treat me the same." He said in a rush.
"Do you want to get her to like you or do you want to get over her and try to get things to go back to how they were?" I asked.
"As much as i would love to be with her, i respect her decision to stay friends." He said.
"So you need to start by telling her that you no longer like her in that way, then you have to make that true. You'll get over her, just be happy that you didn't lose her as a friend." I said.
"Okay, but how do i do that?" He asked.
I didn't have to much experience with girls, so this was a hard one.
"How do you see her now, compared to before?" I asked.
"Well i see this radiant, tough girl, who is really soft on the inside and shes just perfect." He said.
"All you have to do is pretend that you two never kissed, do what you usually do when your around her." I said.
"Okay, thanks Collin." He said getting up.
"No problem." I said as he walked out.
I walked to Scarlets house before i lost me nerve.
She opened the door after the first knock.
"Hey!" She said smiling.
How was i going to get over her?
"Hi." I said.
I stepped inside and cleared my voice, which i did when i was about to say something important.
Scarlets eyebrows furrowed.
"Well i came to let you know that i respect your wishes and i found a way to get over it." I said quietly.
"Oh, okay." Was all she could say. "I'm glad everything can go back to the way it was."
Would it though? Could i actually get over her, i see her everyday, how was i going to do it?
I had a tight smile on my face.
"You came just in time, i was making cookies, i could use the help." She said going into the kitchen, i followed her.
"What do you need me to do?" I asked.
"Can you blend those ingredients while i find the chocolate chips?" She asked.
"Sure." I said.
"Oh but the way i got a new blender so be careful because the buttons are kind of confusing -"
She was cut of by the sound of the blender and food splattering.
I quickly pulled the plug.
"Ops wrong botton." I said wiping some batter off of my face and licking me finger.
"I knew it was a bad idea letting you go near that." She said laughing.
"Yeah that was totally your fault." I said grabbing a cloth.
"Excuse me thats not what i meant." She said taking the cloth from me and whacking me with it.
I took a hand full of flour and flicked it in her face, it stuck to the batter.
"You did not just do that!" She yelled. She grabbed an egg and chucked it at me, it hit the side of my face.
"Ew gross!" I yelled. I took the sugar and poured it over her head. "There, now your sweeter."
She threw a couple more of eggs a me.
I took a step towards her so i could pour the rest of the flour on her, when i slipped landing on my butt.
Scarlet started laughing uncontrollably.
"Are..you alright." She said between laughs.
"Yeah." I said rubbing my butt.
"We should probably start cleaning." She said.
An hour later everything looked nice and clean.
Well except us.
"Lets go out back and use the hose." Scarlet suggested and i followed her.
She grabbed the hose, turned it on and aimed it at me.
"Damn that cold." I said running off.
"Your such a baby." She said laughing.
I took the hose from her and sprayed her with it.
"Oh my god! Your right thats freezing!" She yelled. "You proved your point, stop!"
After we were finally clean, Scarlet went to get towels.
I put the hose away and she came back wrapped in a huge towel. She handed me one and i took it.
"Thanks." I said hugging her.
"Stop that!" She yelled, i was dripping all over her.
I hugged her tighter.
'Just friends'...boy this was going to be hard.
*Note: should Jake and Scarlet end up together? Comment if you think they should or shouldn't.
