I asked my brother to drive me to school the next morning. It was only about forty-five degrees outside, with wind, and frost smothered the ground.
"If you want me to drive you get in the truck."
"Alright alright, yeesh." I was old enough to drive, I just didn't have anything to drive, that was the only problem.
"See ya later little sis." We waved goodbye to me as I got out of the car.
"Ya whatever by big brother." He laughed,smiled, and drove away leaving me stranded here in this hell hole. I went to first period uhhh... This is far by the worst period ever!! Awww.... Second period, math. Now this period is not as bad as it was before. I got to sit next to Kaleb. As I sat down we didn't talk, this was awkward. I feel the same way he did, embarrassed.
"Hey what's up?" He asked me.
"Nothing much, hey nice job at the football game yesterday."
"Oh ya thanks." The teacher walked in the classroom to start explaining.
"Good morning class." She began to spoke.
The rest of that period me and Kaleb hardly got to talk, we had to just sit, listen, and do stupid math problems.
The bell rang for eighth period. Yes finally this day has felt like a year. I called my brother to see if he would come and pick me up. Ya know who wants to walk home from school in 40 degree weather, ya not me.
"Hello." His groggy voice came on the phone.
"Hey ya it's me Nicole well I was wondering if you could pick me up from school. Sense you know it's only in the 40s!"
"Umm well I don't know because I had to stay after school because I kinda got detention."
"Ughhh really Mason it's freezing, and how are you talking to me if you are in detention?" I asked him in a confused tone.
"I snuck off to the bathroom." He told me while giggling a little.
"Whatever Mason I'll see you at home."
On my way walking home I got cold. As I was walking I saw a black and yellow mustang pull up by me, at first I was a little nervous.
"Need a ride?" The familiar voice asked me. As I looked up, I realized it was Kaleb.
"Ya thanks it's freezing out here."
"No problem, he said with concern, so why are you walking, just have Mason pick you up."
"I was going to but he had detention so I had to walk."
"Aww nice, well I'll drive you home if that's okay with you?"
"Yep that's fine, thanks."
On the drive home, then again we hardly talked. Kaleb is so cute! Cute everything eyes, lips, smile, just everything. We got to my house I jumped up out of the car.
"Bye see you tomorrow." He said with a cute little grin on his face.
"Bye and yes I'll be there." I said peeking my head into the drivers side window.
He leaned in for a kiss. I kissed him it lasted about 3 seconds, it doesn't sound long, but it felt It felt like minutes. He broke the kiss, made sure I got inside safe, turned and drove away. Later that evening I got a text.
"Hey" The mysterious person who I had no idea who texted me.
"Ummm who is this?" I asked.
"Oh sorry this is Brandon, you gave me your number and said I could txt you."
"Ohh sorry I just wasn't sure sense I gave you my number and you didn't give me yours."
"Oh that's fine. He texted back within seconds, So I was wondering, it's fine if you say no, but do you want to go out to dinner with me tonight?"
"Ummm sure that sounds good, it will take me about an hour to get ready."
"That's fine I'll pick you up in one hour." I put the phone down and ran up the stairs to get ready. While I was running up the stairs I bumped into Mason.
"Hey where do you think your going little sis?"
"Oh well about that Brandon ya you know him from football well he asked me out on a date and I have to go get ready. He is going to pick me up in one hour."
"Okay but remember if you need anything I'll be there in seconds." I raped my arms around his waste and gave me a big hug. When I was running up the steps I turned and gave him a kiss on the cheek.
I ran upstairs and got dressed I wore my blue dress that came up to about my knees, with a pair of black leggings. I crimped my hair and than threw it up into a messy bun with little waves falling out of it. I put on my black combat boots and on my way down the stairs.
"Wow sis you look gorgeous." Mason said with his mouth dropping open.
"Aww thanks bub." I walked over and gave him a kiss on the cheek. Brandon should be here any minute. About 5 minutes later the door bell rang. Mason jumped up to go answer the door.
"Hey Brandon come in ill go get Nicole I think she is in the bathroom fixing her hair." He said while chuckling.
"That's fine I can wait." Brandon retorted.
As I walked out of the bathroom I heard whispers of Brandon and Mason.
"Oh hey Brandon."
"Hey are you ready to go?"
"Yep I'm ready." When I was walking out Mason graved me to give me a hug, he slipped something into my pocket.
"Take good care of her." Mason yelled as we walked to the car.
"Don't worry nothing will happen." Brandon yelled back to him.
Brandon went around to the passenger side door and opened the door for me. He was such a gentleman. That little action instantly reminded me of Kaleb. We drove until we arrived at the restaurant, barely speaking at all. We pulled into a little diner. The sign read Remember When?. Wow I thought to myself. Lights glowing so bright taking over the shine of the moon. Brandon came around and opened my door for me. Kaleb immediately popped to my mind. We walked into the restaurant approached by a waiter.
"Booth or Table?" He asked. Me and Brandon looked at each other.
Brandon interrupted "we will take a booth please."
"Alright follow me this way." The waiter, which the name tag read Emily.
I ordered pancakes with a side of bacon. Since it was an all day diner. Brandon ordered two eggs with a side of hash browns. We talked a lot that night.
