8. chapter 8
Today was the day of Carter's state tournament Basketball game. I got up and started to get ready. I pulled on my pair of Hollister skinny jeans and my black Magcon hoodie that Carter gave me yesterday. I put on light eyeshadow and mascara and straightened my hair and put a white beanie on. I ran down the stairs and grabbed my phone and purse then I slipped on my white converse and headed out.
*15 minutes later*
I got out of the car and walked into the high schools gym. "JACKIE" my friends Andrea,Emily,and Christina yelled. "Hey" I replied with a smile. I hugged all of them then we sat down in our spots. "Has anyone seen Carter?" "Right over there" Andrea said pointing to the locker room entrance were Carter stood in black,white and red basketball shorts and a shirt with his schools name and mascot on it. I ran over when he was by himself and put my hands on his eyes. "Surprise" I whispered in his ear. "Babe I didn't know you were coming"he said kissing me. "What kind of a girlfriend would I be if I didn't support my favorite guy?" "True"he said smiling. "Well I'm going to go back to my seat..good luck"I said kissing him. "Thanks"he replied. Just as I was walking back he grabbed my hand and spun me back around so I was facing him and said "one more kiss for even more luck"he said grinning "fine" I replied smiling, after I kissed him I walked back to my seat and talked to the girls until the game started.
*2 hours later*
The score was tied 88-88 and Carter was at the free throw line. If he makes this basket we win. Carter scanned the bleacher and made eye contact with me,I blew him a kiss and gave him a smile. Carter winked and smiled back. The ref blew the whistle and carter dribbled the ball and made the shot and it........went......IN!! The crowd went crazy!! Carter got lifted in the air and he yelled "JACKIE" so me and my friends all ran down the bleachers stairs and my friends ran to their boyfriends and I ran to mine. Carter told the guys to put him down,he opened his arms and I ran into his arms and he picked me up and spun me around. "You did it!"I yelled smiling. "I only did it cause I knew you were in the bleachers and I didn't want to disappoint my beautiful,gorgeous,and amazing girlfriend."he replied smiling. After the crowd left, Carter went to go change. I decided I would wait for him. As I was sitting in the gym, there was still the basketball on the court. I put down my purse and walked out to the ball,I picked it up and went to the free throw line. Just as I was about to shoot,I felt a pair of arms wrap around my waist "you know if you want to make a basket you have to put your hand under the ball" I knew it was Carter, so I turned around "can you help me?" I asked batting my eyelashes. Carter took my hand and put it under the ball and brought the other hand on the side of the ball. He put his hands on top of mine and we shot the ball. It went in and "I made a basket,I made a basket" I sang while doing a happy dance which made Carter laugh. Carter grabbed my hands "Jackie, would you want to go out on a very special date with my tomorrow?" "I would absolutely love to" I replied smiling. We both leaned in and as soon as our lips touched I felt major sparks. "I love you so so so much" I said after we finished kissing "I love you so so so so so so much princess " he pulled me in for a hug and said smiling "now let's go celebrate" "ok" I replied also smiling and with that we walked out hand in hand.
