28. Oh Uh I'm fallin' (Shelley Fraley)
I wake up smiling. I feel actually happy. Things are only getting better.
I go to school listening and singing The subs one of the songs that Harry suggested to me. I love it.
“Am I really seeing this? Katy singing a song?” Mandy asks as we keep walking to school gate
“Yeah” I say
“So congratulations! Second place is awesome! And you are going to World Ice Skate Competition!!!!”
“So since when you actually listen to music?”
“Oh Harry gave some suggestion and I stared listening and I like now”
“So…Harry…you haven’t told me about your ‘date’ “
“It wasn’t a date and it was nice actually. I had a good time with him. “
“Not a date huh?”
“No but…he is going to take me to a date on Saturday..”
“I don’t know”
This is true. I don’t want to tell Mandy all the stuffs that I told Harry in his car but I really don’t know the reason for my attitude. I don’t why Harry affects me that way but I’m not really going to think about it.
“I know .You are starting to like him and you think he likes you too. But that’s not true. He just want to get you in his bed to call you his girl. As soon as he gets it he will leave you. And if you keep acting like this he will get this soon.”
“Don’t talk to her like that Mandy” Caren says from behind us. Since when she is hearing our conversation?
“What is it Caren?” Mandy asks. She is annoyed with Caren
“Well what is the problem if Harry wants to take Katy to a date?”
“The problem is Harry doesn’t take girls to dates”
“Maybe Katy is different for him”
“No she is just a challenge”
“You are just jealous”
“Me? No way. I’m not jealous and I’m only concern about Katy’s feeling. Harry is a player not someone to date” Mandy says looking at me “I need to go to my class. See you later”
We watch Mandy leaving and then Caren hugs me
“Congartulation!!!! You are going to WISC!!!!”
“Now tell me how was your Friday night with Harry?”
“Nice? Is that really what you are going to tell me?”
For some reason I feel more comfortable to talk with Caren about Harry than with Mandy. Maybe it’s because I’m sure she won’t judge me or say Harry doesn’t like me.S o I tell her everything
“It seems like he likes you”
“You think so?”
“He is doing everything to make you feel comfortable about it. He is trying to not be the usual Harry.”
“So I have to go to class but keep me update okay? Bye”
I walk to the bakery a little worry. I don’t how to react near Harry. I’m nervous.
I walk fast trying not to look in his eyes. I feel pathetic.
Abby calls me in the kitchen to help here with a cake. I spend most of the afternoon there. Which is good because I can avoid Harry. I don’t know why I feel like that. I’m nervous because I don’t know how is telling the truth. Mandy or Caren? Is Harry just a player or he is trying to do things right with me?? I feel confused.
“That’s it Katy. Thanks for helping me” Abby says
Now I have to get back to Harry’s side.
After almost an hour Harry and I haven’t change a word. He is reading and I’m avoiding him
“Katy” he calls me
“What?” I ask. My breath is fast
“I don’t what is going on inside your mind but don’t overthink. Just let things happen.” He winks and turns his face to his book
How does he know me so well?
