Best Friends?

Rebecca Lockwood, best friend of Damian Coltman. Rebecca's in love with him, she's been in love with him ever since they were little but Damian's too oblivious to notice, or is he?


14. Chapter 13

'Well then, Rebecca Anastasia Lockwood, would you do the honours o making me the happiest person on the earth by going out on a date with me Friday night?'

I smiled from ear to ear, 'Damian James Coltman, I'd love to go on a date with you.' Then, he grabbed my waist and embraced me in a hug, kissing my temple while he's at it.

It's now Thursday, we have holiday till the end of the week. So I have today and tomorrow morning to prepare for my date with Damian.

'I love you.' He smiled. 'I love you too.' I said and he placed a kiss on my lips. 'I better get going.' He said. 'I have to help my mum with something.' I nodded. He kissed my forehead and walked out my door. Leaving me with the breakfast he took with him earlier and I started to eat like a pig. Yeah, I lied about not being hungry. I'm always hungry.


'Details!' Said Meredith in the Skype group. 'Yeah we want to know everything!' Said Kate. 'Spill, Lockwood.' Said Zoe.

'Geez, calm down.' I said shaking my head and they all chuckled, and afterwards I told them everything about the past events that happened last night and this morning.

'Wait, you're date's tomorrow, right?' Asked Zoe. 'We have to go shopping!' She squealed happily. 'Yeah, it'll be fun!' Said Kate. 'Okay.' I said, usually I'd not want to go shopping with these goofballs, they'd buy the entire shop! Where as I'd like to buy my clothes little by little. But since a date with Damian's important, I gave in.

Mere's phone beeped, telling her she has a text message and she read it. 'I can't, Wren and I have plans.' Mere said, it was probably Wren who texted her. 'Oh, that's okay. I still have these goobers.' I said, chuckling. 'Don't buy up the entire store without me!' she said, 'I gotta go! See you guys soon!' She said, leaving our group chat.

'What was that all about?' Asked Zoe and both Kate and I shrugged.


I woke up the next day to find bouquet of Daisies on top of an envelope with my name written in neat handwriting, which belongs to Damian. I smiled at that, Daisies are my favourite flowers.

I opened the letter that read:


I know writing you a letter's kind of cheesy, but I know you're a fool for cheesy romantic things. I know I'm not a person knows everything about romantic shit that girls love, but I'm willing to try for you. And I presume you got the flower I got you, I know how you hate red roses so I decided to go with your favourite, Daisies. I have a surprise for you tonight, and I'm not going to tell you what it is. But I've put several clues around your room to give you an idea of what we're doing later. You can dress however you'd like, dressy, messy, or even hippy style. I'd still love you for who you are. But I presume you'd wear something towards the comfiness side. Anyway, I'd better stop now cause you know how I hate writing with my neat handwriting, its so painful.

I'll see you tonight, clover.

- Damian.

I smiled and pinned the envelope on my cork board. Its not everyday Damian uses his neat writing.

I heard my phone buzz and it was Kate and Zoe texting me at the same time. Creepy. They both read, 'We leave at 12. 😘'

I searched all around my room, and found the clues Damian was talking about. They were all in envelopes.

1 - The word 'FOOD' written in bold, black, upper case letters.

2 - A photo of Shakespeare.

3 - A music note.

4 - A photo of an ice cube.

I figured out the 'FOOD' part obviously, we're having dinner. But Shakespeare? A note? An ice cube? What the hell?

I'll just have to wait and see.

I looked at the clock and it was already 11, so I hopped in the shower and got dressed afterwards. I wore a black laced tank top with a thick cardigan over it and a pair of light washed jeans paired with a pair of army green combat boots. I tied my hair in a ponytail and put on natural makeup. And then I met up with Kate and Zoe.


'That's so cute!' Kate said, pointing at a jumper. 'Yeah it is.' I laughed. 'When are you going to pick out your outfit already? Its like we're the ones who're going out on a date instead!' Said Zoe. 'You both are shopaholics, and I'm not.' I said proudly. 'Come on, we have to get you something. Lets go into TopShop.' Said Kate, yanking my hand and bringing me and Zoe into TopShop.

Kate is a born stylist, she can pick out and mix and match pieces of clothing and put them together and they'd look gorgeous! When she's wandering in TopShop finding something for me to wear, Zoe and I sat on the benches, knackered from all the shopping.

After awhile, Kate came back with a pile of clothes in her hands. 'Here, try these on.' She said and I nod, taking the clothes from her hands. We must obey the fashion guru.

I went into the changing room, and put on the clothes Kate gave me. And the outfit looked wonderful! Not a surprise, honestly, it's Kate we're talking about here.

The outfit consist of a royal blue peplum paired with a black cardigan and a pair of black leggings and flats. I walked out of the changing room and their mouths dropped. 'You look amazing!' They said in unison. 'You have to get them.' Said Zoe, 'I am.' I said and walked into the changing room and heard them share a high 5.


I showered, put on the outfit and did my hair and makeup. I curled my hair a little and put on minimal amount of makeup.

Meredith came into my room saying, 'Lets get going!' She said and I raised an eyebrow. 'I thought Damian's the one who's going to pick me up. And how'd you even get in?' She shook her head, 'Chop chop! We haven't got all day.' She said, I rolled my eyes. 'Alright, alright. Sheesh.' I said, grabbing my purse and walking out the door behind her. 'You know something tells me you didn't have a thing with Wren today.' I said and she just grinned.

When we got to the car, she told me to put on a blindfold, at first I refused but I gave in anyways. When we got to the venue, she walked me out and left me just like that. Thanks, Mere.

Before I could take off the blindfold, I heard the voice of the man I love.

'You look beautiful.'
