What the hell just happened? She was about to kiss you dumbass A voice in my head said. Why didn't I stop her or say im not into girls? I sighed frustrated with my thoughts and went downstairs. As soon as I entered the kitchen everybody got quiet and looked at me.
"Well look who decided to join." Mrs. Lawrence announced
"Yeah sorry, I was in the bathroom and stuff." I replied
"Well come on have a seat next to Sammie and dig in darling!" she seems so nice and fun unlike my mother who is strict and wants me to be a lady. I took my seat next to Sam and put some food on my plate but only a small portion. I wasn't hungry but I didn't want to seem rude by just sitting there not eating. Mother always told me I was fat and that I needed to lose some weight if I want to become a model like she was when she was in high school, but then she quit for some reason. I took a small spoon full of the food and let me tell you it tasted like food heaven!
"Mrs. Lawrence this food is absolutely amazing!" I told her as she smiled
"Why thank you darling. And please call me Marie Mrs. Lawrence makes me feel old!" I laughed a little and went back to eating while everyone else made small talk. Every now and then I would catch Sam looking at me and then she would look away when I saw her looking.
Every once in a while I would take a small glance at Delilah and when she caught me I would look away quickly. Why am I acting like this around a girl? She's not just any girl! A voice said That's right, she's not just any girl she's Delilah the girl I really like and I know this crush aint going away. My train of thoughts were interrupted when someone kicked my leg under the table.
I looked up from my food and saw my mom looking directly at me giving me the look.
"Samantha baby, Mr. Santiago asked you a question." she told me I looked at Mr. Santiago
"I'm sorry Mr. Santiago I zoned out for a minute there. Can you repeat your question please?" I asked him trying to be polite
"No, no its fine honey we all have those moments. I asked you if you and Delilah can stay together for about 4-5 months. Your parents and us have to go on a big business trip at 9:00." I just looked at them like I just saw aliens
"Mom, Dad how can you not tell me you guys are leaving?! TONGIHT!" I screamed at them
"Especially you dad! I thought we told each other everything." everyone stood quiet I sighed angrily and looked back at Mr. Santiago
"Mr. Santiago to answer your question I don't mind staying with Delilah she's nice company. Excuse me." I told them getting up from my seat grabbing my penny board next to the door and looking at my parents once more.
"How could you?" and I left out the door with them screaming my name.
