I can feel someone putting an ice pack on my head, trying to cool me off and I slightly open my eyes to see Natasha. Her eyeliner is a little smeared and her light brown hair is pulled up in a messy bun. My head is killing me. All I remember is that Roy kissed a bleach blonde girl at the party and Natasha told me she had feelings for me. It was probably the alcohol talking for her because there's no way my cousin could have feelings for me. Especially if I'm a total bitch to her. Plus I remember taking a body shot off of someone's abs. I wonder if he was hot. Thinking about the fact that Roy kissed another girl makes me want to cry and just about when I was going to get to know him. It's my fault. I know it is. I waited too long and he's moved on now if he even liked me in the first place which I doubt he did.
"How do you feel?" Natasha asked, continuing to pat my head with the ice pack.
I grin at coolness from the ice pack on my head that is full of sweat. Natasha hands me two pain killers and a glass of water. She's being surprisingly nice. I like this Natasha.
"Hurt." I groaned. The only thing that I wondered about was who brought me home last night. Natasha couldn't have she was wasted out of her mind. It was probably Jordan or Emma if she wasn't too wasted. I'm still in my costume and my heels were on the other side of the couch. I didn't fall in my heels at the party did I? My ankles feel fine.
"You want me to bring you to your room?" Natasha offered, standing up. She's still wearing her skimpy mouse costume.
"My head hurts not my legs, Natasha." I laughed, going to my room.
Natasha follows behind me and I look into my closet for some clothes.
"I think something hurts besides your head." Natasha said, putting her hand on my shoulder. It's like she knows what happened but she couldn't because she passed out.
I grab a white tank top and black short cheerleader shorts that Natasha gave me while back.
"You can talk about it with me if you want."
"I saw a guy I like kiss another girl." I said bluntly, taking off my dress to put on my shirt. It's not like I have the right to mad at him. He's not my boyfriend. I think I just need some time away from him because the scene is going to replay in my head if I don't. "But I have no right to be mad because he doesn't know that I like him. It makes me more mad that I'm not allow to be mad at him."
"Well you can take some time to grieve and when you're ready tell him how you feel and talk it out with him. If he's really a good guy then he'll understand and maybe he'll explain his actions."
I hand Natasha an old hot pink spaghetti strap shirt and some black shorts that has three buttons. Maybe Natasha is right, I could take a little time away from him and shove every bit of sweets that I have in my house down my throat.
"I could call Caleb and he could take somewhere to get your mind off of it. He seems to really like you." Natasha suggested, widening her eyes.
My eyes widened at her statement. If she knows about me and Caleb's experience, then why would she suggest it? How would she know if Caleb likes me? I thought after a couple breakup they never speak to each other. Caleb talked to me after we broke up but still. I'll never understand dating.
"Oh no." I said, sitting right in front of Natasha who's sitting on my bed. "Let's talk about last night Natasha." I'm talking about the whole lesbian thing with her. I'm still confused about it and it'll bother me until I find out more about it. "You might have said something that might have been a false statement. You told me that you have feelings for me." I feel kind of bad for putting her on the spot right there but the truth shall set you free, right?
"Well I'm lesbian and I really do." she admitted, bitting her lower lip. She takes a deep breath before she continues to talk. "I know it's weird since we're family but you have been there for me even if you don't really like me that much. You were always there for me when I need it. Even when I did put hot fudge in your hair when we were kids, you still helped through the years. Plus guys are such assholes."
I couldn't agree more with her on that, guys are grassholes. She rubs her hands together, twirling with her side bangs. I can tell that she's nervous about confessing this to me, but I have no problem with her being gay or anything it's just a little shocking for me.
"Plus you're really pretty and I know that you're not a bad person. I guess that I felt a little connection there. I wanted to spend some time with you but since I asked you to come with my hair appointment, I've been too scared to ask you," She said, starting to tear up. I feel kinda bad for being mean to her for all this time and really she just wanted to spend more time with me.
I hug her to comfort her and she starts to cry harder on my shoulder.
"You're my cousin and all I want is for you to be happy. And I understand that you're not that way so I want to do everything I can to make you get over this guy you like," she chuckled, pulling away from me. "Please don't tell anyone about this. I haven't quite decided to come out to everyone yet."
"So how about that date with Caleb?" she asked. I don't know if I want to go out with Caleb especially if I work so hard for him to leave me alone. But whats the worse that can happen? Him getting on my nerves?
"Sure. Just one question."
Natasha pulls out her phone, listening to me at the same time. She gestures me to continue before she gets on the phone with Caleb.
"How did you figure yourself out?" I wondered, getting up from my bed to brush the rats nest out of my hair. Wow I really look terrible when I'm hungover.
"It's when I went on a date with this guy name Zack and he kissed me but it didn't feel right. Like I didn't like it or something so I invited one of my good friends over to help and she suggests that I'm gay. So she decides to make sure and she kisses me and I liked it." she shrugged, pressing the call button on her phone. Well that's an interesting story. It's flattering to know that you make someone crazy about you especially if it's your own cousin. "Hey Caleb, I have something that you might want to hear."
"Mary wants to go on a date with you."
Caleb is taking me rollerskating and I'm a bit scared for my life. I can't even walk in heels what makes you think that I can move on something with wheels. I'm currently wearing a burgundy top with a black leather jacket and some black jeans with black combat boots plus my hair is in a cheerleader ponytail. I hope I didn't dress too 'pretty' but I wouldn't really call this a date it's just to have fun and take my mind off of Roy.
"He's here." Natasha informed me, popping her head in my door.
I nod and she leaves my room as I take another look in my mirror. I put my phone in my back pocket and walk out of my door to see Caleb all dressed up. As I get closer to him, I see he has something in his hand which were daisies. My favorite. How did he know?
"You look pretty. These are for you," Caleb said, handing me the dozen of daisies. I see in the corner of my eye that Natasha is holding her hands against her chest and my mom is giving us her death stare.
"Thanks." I said, putting the flowers on the end table right by me.
"Let's go." Caleb said, holding out his arm for me to take it.
"Have fun!" Natasha yelled before we close the door on her.
Caleb holds the door open for me and closes it to go on the drivers side. I remember the last time I was in here we almost had sex until my mom texted me and interrupted us. Great Memories. Which makes me glad that she did because I think I would regret losing it to the school's playboy. Caleb looks a lot more handsome than usual. He's wearing a royal blue button up shirt with some dark jeans and his hair is actually fixed. He usually has that messy bed hair even though he still looks good with messy hair. I would rather him to fix it if we go out. It tells me that he cares what he looks like when he's with me. I don't like him I just appreciate how he got fixed up just to hang out with me.
Caleb opens the door for me when we arrive at the skate rink. The inside is literally filled with teenagers. No little kids or adults, but I'm not complaining. Caleb and I make our way to the counter to get our skates.
"Size ten and?" Caleb stopped, looking at me.
"Six." I said.
The guy nods, handing me my skates.
"You have small feet." Caleb teases.
"Shut up."I joked.
I sit down at an empty table to put my skates on. I'm going to bust my ass so hard in these skates. I try to stand up in these skates very slowly and I slip, but luckily Caleb catches me.
Caleb holds my hand as we make our way to the roller rink so I don't fall every time I move in these things. We get on the shiny hardwood floor and I'm officially scared. The floors seem really easy to slip on and I'm afraid that Caleb is going to let me go without me knowing. I tighten my grip on Caleb's hand just in case he tries to let go of me. Caleb is stopped by a wall to get a grip on my waist and we start to skate a bit faster. The warmth of Caleb's hands and his grip on my waist make me blush a little bit. Don't begin to like him, Mary. What about Roy? I know I shouldn't like Caleb, but I shouldn't like Roy either, he has a girlfriend. At least Caleb's single and doesn't try to hit on me when he's already dating someone. I know Roy and I weren't really talking but it hurts like we had something going. I need to stop thinking about him. That's why I came here to have fun and get my mind off it. Roy mode deactivated.
After a few minutes of skating around, we hear the microphone screech, making me and Caleb cover our ears.
"Boys and girls it's time for the Glow Party! You have to have something glow in the dark to participate in this event!" the DJ announced.
"I'll go buy us some glow sticks," Caleb said, rolling to the counter.
While I was waiting for him right outside the ring, an older guy comes up to me. He looks about twenty or so, he has short black hair and really bright blue eyes and he's totally hot! He's wearing a leather jacket like mine and some dark jeans.
"Hey cutie. What's your name?" he smirked.
"Mary," I blushed. Right now my gut is telling me that this guy isn't good news but my heart tells me he's hot so who cares.
"I'm Ian," he said, offering me a handshake.
I take it as I smile at him while my face is turning scarlet, glowed red. I see Caleb rolling over here and he looks pretty angry. The one thing that I admired about Caleb while we were dating is that he would get jealous easily.
"Hey back off, she's with me." Caleb scolded, holding two glow sticks necklaces. One is neon green and the other one is neon pink.
Ian scoffs and walks away while Caleb puts the glow stick necklace around me. "Go find someone in your age range." Caleb says before Ian walks away too far. He acts offended by him.
"I thought you might like the pink better." Caleb said, quickly changing the subject.
"Caleb, did you know him?" I asked, turning around to roll to the rink and Caleb catches me before I fall on my face.
Caleb is hugging me by my waist and I'm not going to lie, I really miss being his girlfriend right now. It sounds crazy, but maybe Caleb really did have feelings for me and realize he made a mistake. Who am I kidding? This isn't the movies it's real life and from my experience, it doesn't work like that.
"Did you know him?" I repeated.
I get out of Caleb's grip to look at him in the face to make sure he's not lying.
"All I know that he dated Penelope's mom," he admitted, putting on his necklace.
My eyes widened. I can't believe an older guy just hitted on me, I feel so violated right now. That's so gross.
Caleb starts to skate faster without me, looking at me so I can catch up with him. And when I do, he goes even faster. I try to skate faster, but I fell on my knees, which hurt like hell. Someone grabs me by my waist from behind to help me up and my eyes widened when I figured it out who it was. It's Ian the pedophile. The only way I can tell is the light from his glow stick is hitting his face perfectly, making his blue eyes pop.
"Hey are you okay?" Caleb asked, dusting off my pants and pulls me towards him as soon as he sees Ian.
"Yeah I'm fine." I grinned at Caleb, not paying any attention to Ian.
Caleb pulls me by my waist, starting to skate in front of me. He grabs my hand to pull me towards him and I'm on his chest. I can tell that he has been working out his pecs, they're very firm. What if he's grown abs? He pulls away from me to skate and he pulls me with him. So I can see the elusive Caleb Wylde is a teaser now. Very attractive. I get in front of Caleb and he slightly pushes me so I can get a head start. I move side to side to keep my balance and fall on my behind. Literally. Caleb kneels down to see if I'm okay and I can see him looking at my lips. Soon as he leans in a little further the lights come back on.
"You okay?" Caleb laughed, pulling me up.
"Yeah. I'm getting kinda hungry. I was thinking maybe we can go get some pizza?" I suggested. I can feel my stomach cramping up from being hungry and my legs are a little weak.
"Sure." Caleb nods.
We roll to a table to take off our roller skates. Caleb grabs my roller skates while I put my combat boots back on. It feels good to be safe on land again. I wait for Caleb at the door, holding it open for him when he comes towards me. I go to open the car door open, but Caleb didn't let me, he had to hold it open for me. He closes the door and heads to the drivers side. He's been so sweet tonight. Now I wish I didn't lie to him and say that I was dating Roy. Which makes me wonder what did Natasha say to him while she was on the phone. I don't know because she went into the bathroom to talk to him.
We arrive to our destination, The Pizza Palace, which is a very cheesy name if you ask me. See what I did there? No? Okay. Caleb holds my hand, trying to help me get out of his car. I walk into the place with hardly anybody in it and Caleb is still holding my hand. Caleb goes up to the counter to see an older guy with dark brown hair and a little bit of a beard growing on his face. A little facial is attractive but beard isn't. Blah.
"How may I help?" He greets us.
"I want one large cheese pizza, please. Plus two large cokes." Caleb ordered, pulling out his wallet and it's pretty fat. I swear I only saw hundred dollar bills in there. I only have five dollars in my Hello Kitty piggy bank and that's for emergencies like if I want to get my hair done or something.
"Will that be here or to go?"
"Here." Caleb said.
"Extra cheesy." I blurted.
The guy behind the counter laughs and takes Caleb's credit card. I like my pizza with nothing on it except for cheese and I want butt loads of it. I'm not the pepperoni or meat lover kind of gal which I think makes me seem kinda weird.
The guy hands Caleb back his credit card and we find a seat in the middle of the place. I intertwine my fingers, putting them on the table in front of me. I can feel the warmth of Caleb's hand on mine, then next thing you know we're holding hands. Which makes me blush pretty hard and grin like an idiot. You can't like him, Mary. He's only going to hurt you. I know, but his hands with mine feels so nice.
"Your hand looks heavy. Let me hold it for you." Caleb smirked, tightening up his grip on my hand. Did he just gave me a cheesy pick-up line? That's so cute!
I laugh as I try to think of one to say back to him.
"I tried to come up with a cute one but I think I suck at it." he mentioned.
"It's okay. I'm better at it anyway." I teased.
The guy comes to bring us our pizza and drinks. I take five sips out of my soda before grabbing a piece of pizza.
"Prove it." Caleb said, taking a bite out of slice.
"Your daddy must be a drug dealer, cause you're dope." I smirked, waiting for him to come up with a another one. He can't beat me at this I used to look up pickup lines last year in class so I have a whole stash to throw at him.
"Was your dad a farmer? Cause you sure have great melons." he chuckled, pointing to my breast.
"You know, sweetie, my lips won't kiss themselves." I blurted, taking a sip out of my coke and my face starts to get hot when I realize what I said.
I witness Caleb looking at my lips while rubbing his. Is he going to kiss me? If he would, I don't think I would stop him, I think I want it to happen. Maybe that's why I said that cheesy pick up line but it was so bad.
Caleb starts to lean in and his soft lips touch mine, but the guy from behind the counter interrupts us. "No kissing!"
The little amount people here are staring at us and it's so awkward with this many people staring at you. Why can't I just get kissed without being interrupted? It's like I'm cursed or something.
I finish the slice I was on and decided to not eat anymore. The pizza isn't half eaten and I would hate for it to go to waste. Looks like I have to volunteer to bring the rest home if Caleb doesn't glob it down like he's doing right now with his slice. Slow down or you'll choke and I have no idea how to do the Heimlich.
"Hey Mary?" Caleb whispered, leaning forward. "I wish you were soap so I could feel you all over me."
I laugh, playfully pushing him which makes him lean back into his chair.
Gotta love cheesy pickup lines.
