"Okay, so what do I text him?" I asked as we walked into my bedroom and lay down on my bed as I stared at Michael's number on my phone "It can't be anything too flirty though because I don't want him to get the wrong impression ya know?"
"Ellyse," Kirsty snapped her fingers in front of my face, "What are you talking about? We've been talking to him for the last 2 days or whatever, I think he knows you don't want to leap into bed with him" She and Andy giggled.
God, I'm stupid. What was I thinking? All this crushing on Michael stuff has made me crazy, and he doesn't even have a crush on me.. I don't think. That kiss meant nothing to both of us and that's final.
"Right, of course," I laughed at myself too, "But seriously though, hi, hey or hello? Which one? I need to know" Like I said before, I'm crazy ;)
"Hey. It sounds more casual" Andy nodded as Kirsty giggled.
"You're such a geek" Kirsty lightly punched my arm, "You go nuts over nothing, calm down, girly" A smile formed on my lips knowing what she just said was completely true.
"Should I send it now? Or later? I don't want to sound desperate" My thumb hovered over the send button. The girls both rolled their eyes at me.
"Just send it!" Andy laughed and my thumb hesitated for a couple more seconds before I took her asvice and did it and man, did it feel like the world had just been lifted off of my shoulders. Wow, I'm so dramatic.
We sat in a circle on my bed and placed my phone in the middle of the bed. After what seemed like forever, but was actually only a couple of minutes, Michael replied.
Mikey: Hey! What's up, E?
I think I just died. Michael 'effing Clifford just texted me. ME! I could feel their eyes on me but I couldn't react.. Okay, maybe that's just a little dramatic but I was actually so happy that I didn't know what to do.
I bit down on my lip to stop my smile from growing but it didn't work. Soon my cheeks were hurting from the smile that was plastered on my face.
"Are you gonna reply or what?" Kirsty asked as she picked up the phone and handed it over to me.
Okay, Ellyse, don't make a big deal out of this. Calm down, it's only Michael.
Ellyse: Just chillin' with the girls, you?
"Just chillin'? Really? Were you born in the 80's? Who says that any more?" Andy exclaimed. Thanks, Andy, that really helps with the nerves. It's really nice to know I text like a 30 year old.
My phone vibrated in ny hands and the butterflies kicked in again, but the good ones that make you feel excited and jittery... Jittery? Is that a word? Well, it is now.
Mikey: Haha, cool. I'm pretty good, having a barbeque with the family. It's great to catch up with them.
Before I could do anything he sent another text
Mikey: Hey, sorry to cut our convo short but I really need to help out and catch up with the fam. I'll talk to you later tonight, okay? X
Ellyse: Talk to ya later x
10 pm that night.
I lay on my bed staring at the ceiling, my phone the only light on in the room. He still hasn't texted. My phone buzzed on my bedside table and the butterflies came back.
I took a deep breath before looking at the text,
Kirsty: Has he texted yet?
Great. I got worked up over nothing, it was just Kirsty.
Ellyse: Nah. I'm giving up. Goodnight, bae xxxxxx
Kirsty: Aw, poor thing. Goodnight, girly xx
I turned off my phone and placed it back down on my bedside table. I got up and dragged myself into my bathroom to take a shower.
After my shower, I got changed into my comfy pyjamas and headed to bed.
Beep! Beep! Beep!
Ugh. Mornings. Kill me now.
I rolled over and patted my hand around on my bedside table until I found my phone and then I opened one eye to turn it off and just lay there.
It's so hard to get out of bed in the morning. I feel like a zombie- and probably look like one too.
I sat up in bed and stratched lut my arms, legs amd had one big yawn before getting out if bed and opening the curtains. I squinted as the rising sun shone right down into my eyes, "Good morning" I mumbled to myself as I found my work unifrom in my dresser and headed to the bathroom to get changed.
I applied minimal make-up because I'm not really the kind of girl who gets all glammed up for work and I barely have time in the morning too, sooo yeah.
I headed down stairs and made myself some corn flakes with sugar on top and very little milk because I like my cerial crunchy. I never got how people could eat soggy cerial, yuck.
I headed back up stairs to brush my teeth before I got started on my hair. I combed through my extremely knotty hair and just pulled it down into a fishtail braid before I heard the girls pull up in the driveway and honk for me to come out.
I ran down stairs and kissed Luke, Mum and Dad good bye before chucking on my heels, grabbing my keys and outside to the car.
That is my hectic morning. Morning suck, dude.
We were half way to work before I realised I realised I had left my freakin' phone at home. See? This is why mornings suck :(
Looks like I'm just gonna go the whole work day without my phone
"Looking for this?" A familiar voice spoke as they tapped my on the shoulder. I spun around in my seat to see a red-headed boy standing right behind me and him holding my phone.
"Michael!" I exclaimed as I stood up and gave him a tight hug, "Thank you soooo so much" I placed a kiss on his cheek as I took my phone out of his hand.
"No problem, E," Michael blushed, "I was meaning to talk to you anyway" he smiled.
