Looking from afar

Sarah has always been a nobody. She does well in school and she has a bunch of friends. Sarah is happy about her life, but nobody knows her in school. There is only one person Sarah wished would notice her. And that was Matt. Will Sarah always be watching from far away or will she find the courage to make something happen?


10. Project

Matt's POV

I walked up to Sarah's house and rang the doorbell. Her sister opened the door. At least I think it was her sister. "Hi. I'm Matt. I'm working on a project with Sarah today." I saud

"She's upstairs" She told me walking away. 

I walked in a closed the door behind me. "First door on the right." Her sister told me.

I walked up the stairs and up to her door. I knocked but no one answered so I walked in. I saw her laying on her bed sleeping. I walked in quietly and closed the door behind me. She looked so peaceful. Obviously she fell asleep right when she got home. She was laying on her back with her hair laying all over her bed. She was wearing a long white lace short sleeve dress. She still had her make up on. It didn't make her look to different but definitely prettier than before. I walked over to her bed and shook her lightly. She didn't wake up so I shook her harder. Finally I had an idea. I pulled out some frosting that I had with me for the things we were going to make. I stuck my fingers in and spread it on her face. I pulled out my phone and took a picture. Sadly I forgot to put my phone on silent so the sound woke her up. She sat up and freaked out. I was so funny. She sat up and rubbed her eyes. She realized she had frosting all over her face and freaked out. I stood there laughing the whole time.

"Mathew Krang! How dare you put frosting all over my face!" She screamed.

"Lighten up it's just frosting. It's not gonna kill you." I said still laughing. 

"You didn't let me finish." She said taking out the chocolate frosting and opening it. "Without letting me do it to you." She said evily.

I realized what she was going to do and started running around her room trying not to get icing in my face. She took a plastic spoon out of her drawer and scooped out frosting. She pulled the spoon back and the let it go. I big clump of icing came right at my face. It hit me fight in the nose and more came after that until my whole face was covered in frosting. I wiped it off my eyes and saw her cracking up.

"Oh it's on!" I yelled also grabbing a container of frosting and a spoon. We flung frosting at each other until out faces and the rest of our body was covered and we ran out of frosting. We collapsed on the floor laughing our heads off. 

"You're lucky I have hard flooring and the frosting only got on the floor." She said still laughing.

"What about your dress?" I asked guilty that I ruined it.

"It's okay. I was going to get rid of it anyway, it got to small." 

"It's a shame. You looked good in it." I said under my breath.

Sarah's POV

"It's okay I was going to get rid of it anyway. It's to small." I told him.

"It's a shame. You looked good in it." I heard him say under his breath.

"What was that?" I asked hoping he would say it out loud.

"Nothing." He said.

"Well I need to go change now" I said. "Sorry I don't have anything for you to change into."

"it's okay. I have extra pants in my bag. I always spill things on me." He reassured me.

"Okay. I'm gonna go change then." I said and walked into my closet to pick something out and change.

When I walked out I found Matt standing at my desk shirtless looking at a picture of Lexi, my old dog. "Who's this?" He asked

"That's Lexi. She died a year and a half ago." I told him while putting up my hair. I was wearing my Hershey Sweatshirt and black leggings.

"Oh. I'm sorry." He said putting the picture back. He turned around and I had to try really hard to not stare.

"So are we going to start working?" I asked trying to distract myself.

"Uh. Yeah. I brought some supplies just in case." He said.

We went downstairs and set up some things. We were going to switch the baking powder with baking soda in cookies, cupcakes and brownies. I was working on the ones with baking powder and Matt was working on the ones with baking soda. I was hoping over after turning on music when Matt walked in front of me and spilled water on me.

"You did that on purpose!" I yelled at him.

"I did not! I swear!" He protested.

"Well I'll just have to do this." I said picking up some flour and throwing it at him.

"You did not just do that." He said

"Oh but I did" I taunted throwing more flour at him.

He picked up a small bowl of flour, "You're gonna wish you didn't do that." He said dumping the flour on my head.

"O my god!" I yelled grabbing an egg and cracking it on his head.

"Food fight!" He yelled as we started throwing food at each other.

Just then my mom waked in a stopped. "What did you do!?" she yelled at us. We stopped what we were doing and looked at her. "Clean this up right now and then go take showers both of you!"

She walked out of the room leaving us to clean. As she walked away we started laughing. It took us a half hour to clean the whole kitchen. then I went upstairs to take a shower while Matt called his dad to bring him more clothes. After we finished taking our showers we sat in my room talking.

"How was the date yesterday?" He asked.

"Not that great. I kept throwing popcorn at Isabella as punishment for making me go." I said and Matt burst out laughing.

"Yeah cause popcorn is punishment." He laughed.

"Hey it was either that or slap her with pizza and I didn't want to get her mad." I argued

"Any way. How was Kenny." He asked

I sighed. "Well he didn't try to kiss me but he did send me this." I said showing him the text. "And during the movie he kept trying to hold my hand. I thought you said you would talk to him about that." 

"I did. But you know Kenny. He does whatever he wants." Suddenly we heard firecrackers. "Who would shoot off firecrackers this time of year?" Matt asked.

I started to laugh until I realized that Emma was still outside. "Oh no. Emma's outside." I said as I put my jacket on.

"Who's Emma?" He asked.

"My dog." I said running down the stairs. "She's terrified of firecrackers. Once she ran away because she was so afraid of them." I ran outside and started calling her. I started panicking when I realized that she wan't here. "She's not here. She couldn't have gone far. Keep looking back here, I'll go check the front." I told Matt.

"No. I'll go with you, we can go around the block indifferent directions and see if we can find her."

"Okay. Come on." I said really panicking. After 15 minutes of running around the block, I came back to the house hoping to see her. Matt came back a minute later.

"I couldn't find her." He said.

I started to cry. "We're never going to find her. She could be anywhere." Suddenly Matt came over to me and wrapped his arms around me.

"I'm sure someone will find her and call." He reassured me.

"She can take her collar off. She might not have it on." I sobbed into his chest. Just then my phone rang. "Hello?" I said answering. "Hey it's Kenny." The person on the other end said. "What do you want. I really don't want to talk to you right now." "Well I found your dog." He said. "Oh my gosh! Where?" I asked excitedly. "Over by CVS. I'll be here with her if you want to come pick her up." I freaked out. "We'll be there in 10-15 minutes. Thank you so much. See you then." I said hanging up. I looked up to see Matt staring at me. "That was Kenny, he found Emma!"

"That's great. Where?" He asked.

"Over by CVS." I said. "It's only a 10-15 minute walk from here."

"Okay well then lets go." He said picking me up since I couldn't walk fast enough.

When we got there Kenny was standing there with Emma shaking. I clipped Emma's leash onto her collar. I went over to Kenny and gave him a hug. "Thank you so much for finding Emma." I thanked him.

"It's no big deal." He said.

"To her it is." Matt said. "She was crying she was so worried."

"I wasn't crying." I said embarrassed.

"Well then how do you explain these tears on my sweatshirt?" He said.

"Why are they on your sweatshirt." Kenny asked.

"Because I was comforting her." Matt shot back.

"Well thanks again fro finding Emma but I have to go buy something. So if you guys could just stay here for a second and try not to do anything stupid I would appreciate it. I can out a minute later with a pie tin and 2 bottles of whipped cream. I handed Matt the pie tin and filled it with whipped cream. I turned around holding the pie. "Matt would you like to do the honors?" I asked. 

"It would be my pleasure." He said and kicked Kenny in no place any guy should be kicked. I held the pie under his chin and as he bent down the pie was smashed into his face.

"What was that for?" He groaned in pain.

"That was for everything you did before." I said. Matt gave me a high five as he carried me away laughing with Emma. 

When we got home we went back into my room.

"Well we got no work done today." I said laying down on my bed.

Matt layed down next to me. "I guess I'll have to come over again tomorrow then."

I tensed up at that. How could I go through another day of not staring.

"What? Do you not what me to come over." He asked offended.

"No. It's not that. It's something else." I told him.

"What is it?" He asked turning onto is side so he could face me.

"Nothing important."

"You sure?"

"Yeah. I'm sure." I paused for a moment. "So. What time can you come over tomorrow?"

"Any time."

"How about 11am."

"11 am!  was thinking more around 3 or 4. A time I could actually wake up by." He wined.

"It's either 11 am or we fail." I threatened.

He sighed. "Fine. 11 am it is."


We spent the rest of the time watching Frozen, which took a ton of begging to get him to agree. Soon, the movie ended. At the end when the credits were rolling I got up and sang to Let It Go. I was running around my room singing and jumping all over things on one foot. The whole time Matt was watching me and laughing. After it was over I layed back on my bed out of breath from all the dancing. I looked over to see Matt taking a video of me. "How dare you take a video of my awesomeness without my permission." I laughed.

"Well I dare." He laughed back.

Suddenly his phone rang. "I have to take this. I'll be right back." He walked out of the room and stood in the hall. "What do you want?" I heard him say. He listened for a second. "Yeah well I don't want to get back together." Pause. "No it's not because of Emily." Pause. "No. Stop accusing people. Maybe I broke up with you because I just wanted to." Longer pause. I walked out into the hall. "I have to go." He said quietly not realizing I was behind him. "I'll talk to you later." Pause. "Bye." He turned around jumping when he saw me. 

"What. Surprised to see me in my house." I teased.

"Ha ha very funny." He said. His phone vibrated and he looked down at it. "I have to go. My dad's here."

"Okay. See you tomorrow." I said not wanting the day to end. 

I walked him to the door. "Remember. 11 am. Don't be late." I called after him.

"Never." He replied sarcastically.

"Hey don't use that tone with me mr."

"Yes mother." He mocked. I suck my tongue out at him. "Wow so mature." He called.

I closed the door and walked into my room thinking about how perfect the day has been. Well almost perfect. If we hadn't run into Kenny.
