My eyes opened,I immediately sat up and turned off my alarm clock. I snorted,rubbing my nose,I ran to the bathroom and brushed my teeth. I hurried back to my closet and searched through the many combination of outfits that I had. I put on the outfit that I pulled out and grabbed my bag. I walked across the hall and turned to go downstairs,I opened the door. Alice and Katie followed behind me as I walked towards Katie's car. I got in the passenger's seat and pulled out my phone,putting the earplugs into my ear,I played Paramore and sat back in my seat.
I didn't take long before we were in the parking lot of our school. I got out of the car and looked around,and to think that some people moved on! People were still pointing and talking about me behind my back,ugh it felt like my old school. I looked down and just ran inside,I bumped into someone and fell on my butt.
"Oh,hey Candice...sorry" I looked up to see Matthew holding out his hand.I blushed a little and took his hand,Matthew chuckled.
"Why do you blush so much?" I laugh a little and rolled my eyes. The bell rang and a crowd of teens came rushing inside.
"Well,I should get to class" Matthew gave me a peck on the lips before walking off. I shrugged and looked at the girls.
"I should get going too" They both nodded,I turned around and walked to class.
I walked inside of my homeroom class,walking t the back and sitting at a desk. I got out my spiral notebook and started to doodle,I put my pen down,putting my chin in my hand. Feeling guilty,I just can't escape the feeling that I hurt Matthew. I let out a sigh and looked around,only about three people were giving me strange looks. I grew frustrated, if I just didn't go for Matthew!
"Candice,you didn't mean that..." I told myself,right when the teacher walked in after the late bell rung.
"Okay so class today..." I stopped paying attention,maybe I should just tell Matthew that I actually do want to marry him. I smiled,writing notes from the board.
I got up once the bell rang,I grabbed my notebook and my textbook off of my desk and left the room. I jogged straight towards my locker,knowing that a huge crown would emerge soon. I stuffed my things into my locker and slammed it closed,I locked it ran ran to the lunchroom.
I stood in line,waiting to pay for a water bottle. After the guy in front of me left I stepped forwards,giving the lady a dollar. I turned,looking around the lunchroom. Not knowing where to sit,then I saw Candice,sitting by herself,I shrugged and walked towards her,I took a deep breath before sitting down. Candice looked up from her salad and gave me a warm smile.
"Hey..." I said,I tore the plastic of of my fork and stabbed into the mashed potatoes. I took a bite,feeling awkward not knowing what to talk about.
"Are you mad at me?" Candice asked suddenly,I jumped slightly.
"No...why would you think that?" Candice shrugged and poked at a crouton. I sighed and reached for her hand.
"Is it about me proposing?"
"No..." I gave Candice a look.
"Why would I be mad at you! If you're not ready then,well, you're not ready!" Candice sighed,shoving lettuce covered in caesar salad dressing into her mouth. She chewed a few times and swallowed.
"I just thought that you would be upset and not love me anymore..."
"Candice...I love you,I can't even EXPLAIN how much I love you!" Candice giggled,she finally looked me in the eyes.
"Okay,I love you..." I smiled.
"Well then,will you go on a date with me?" Candice nodded just as Alice and Katie walked over.
"Hey guys!" Katie says.
"Hey" Candice and I say.
