It's Tuesday which means I have to watch my cousin, Tracy for the night while her mother goes out with mine. I don't understand why her parents go out so much if they have kids and when they do they should get Natasha to do it. It's her little sister, but I guess if I was Natasha I wouldn't desire to babysit that devil child either.
I finish primping myself in the school's bathroom and make my way out to see Violet, Emma, Penelope, and even Jordan standing right at my locker.
"Who are you primping for?" Emma sarcastically smirked, crossing her arms. She seems like she's onto something but then again, no telling with Emma.
"Myself." I lied, a nervous smile creeps upon my face.
Penelope and Jordan are sitting back on my locker, enjoying the show that's about to go on between me and Emma.
"I think you mean Caleb!" Emma whined, stomping her foot, making it echo in the hall.
We all couldn't help but laugh at how childish she looks especially me, I'm trying to be serious and it's not working out. Emma can be childish where it's cute, but it could get annoying, always remember there's a fine line between cute and annoying.
"Emma chill." Penelope said, stoping her laughter, pulling me and Emma to the them. "Violet told us what happened with Roy and now you have the hots for Caleb. I may warn you, he's not the brightest guy in the world. I'll get into further detail on our way to lunch." Penelope offered her arm.
I take it and we all begin to walk down the hall.
Penelope starts telling me how she and Caleb fell in love at my party, but then he broke with her to get back with Natasha. I can see that Jordan is getting pissed hearing about Caleb and how he hurt Penelope. I never really knew the story between Caleb and Penelope, all I knew was that he dated her, dumped her, and tried to get back with her. Sounds like the same thing he's doing with me. Hearing all of this causes me regret liking him and making me think that maybe he doesn't really like me and he's playing me like he did Penelope. I wish there was a way that I knew that Caleb was telling the truth when he told me that he cared about me. Caleb might not have been there for me all the time, but I was always the first choice to him and it feels good to be someone's first choice.
I let go of Penelope's arm, grabbing my lunch from the lunch lady and went sit at our usual table. Today's lunch is crunchy rice and crunchy beans. Emma is probably still pissed about the fact that I like Caleb especially all the stuff we used to say about him and Natasha.
"And Emma, Mary is still your friend so you should accept who she likes no matter how stupid you think it is for her to like them." Penelope teased.
Emma unfolds her arms, looking at her.
"Mary, I just can't believe after all the stuff we used to say about him and you like him now. I even slapped him across his face for you. I can't talk bad about him now." Emma sighed, leaning against her chair.
"I know but we can still talk bad about him if it makes you feel better about us." I said, pushing my plate away to put my elbows on the table.
Emma is happy and smiley again. Jordan is still a little irritated about the subject of Caleb.
"But if he hurts you, I'm making sure he doesn't have kids," Emma threatened.
"Get in line." Violet added, raising her milk bottle.
I have amazing friends.
I'm sitting in Caleb's clique circle behind the school building with Violet, Jordan, Penelope, and Emma by my side. The only people here that I know are Caleb, Matt, who's talking to Emma, and Natasha who's talking to her clique. Plus, there's this dude with reddish blonde hair just staring at me and it's freaking me out. He's not bad looking, but if you find something interesting about, say something besides just staring at me and make me feel awkward. Caleb and I aren't doing anything, we're sitting really close to each other so I guess that's a start, right?
"So, what are you doing tonight?" Caleb asked, rubbing his lips.
"Babysitting the devil." I chuckle.
He laughs and runs his fingers through his sandy blonde hair. His hair is messy but like the cute kind of messy, I just want to run my fingers through his hair so badly.
"Maybe I can help you, if you don't mind."
Are you kidding me? Hell no I wouldn't mind but I'm pretty sure my mother would though. I guess I have to pull an Emma on her and cry and beg until I get my way. I would hate to act like a brat but I guess you do anything to be with someone you really like. I'm still new to this love thing.
"Sure I'll ask my mom."
The bell rings and Caleb helps me up from the ground. I dust my skirt off and picked my backpack to put it over my shoulder. Caleb walks me to my next class and before he left he gave me kiss on the cheek. I turn around to see Emma's mouth in a shape of an 'O' and she claps her hands out of excitement. I roll my eyes at her and head to class and into my seat. The class starts as soon as we sit down and the teacher starts talking but tone her out.
I start to think about me and Caleb on our first actual date. I don't claim the roller skating and him skipping school when I got suspended, a real date so I imagine it being pretty special. I imagine our first date would be like see a movie then he would come back to my house and cuddle with me for the rest of the night. That's it, that's all I want. Is that too much to ask to ask for? I also want that special kiss at the end of the night that I'm going to remember for the rest of my life. Similar to the one we did in my bed on the day of my birthday party but this time I'm actually going to feel some passion now that I can stand him. Just one thing that I don't understand is that why he broke up with me and why did he ask to be friends with benefits? Penelope is right, maybe he's not really all that smart but I don't see why he would ask something like that. He knows me better than that and he knows that I wouldn't do something so stupid and slutty.
The bell ringing interrupting my thoughts and Emma shakes me to make sure I heard it. I stop Emma from shaking me before I end up throwing the lunch I didn't eat. Emma and I walk out to class together and she makes me go to the bathroom with her. She brushes through her long, straight light brown hair and reapplies her lip gloss. I honestly don't think Emma needs to try so hard to look good, she's already gorgeous with and without makeup plus she has a awesome personality. Theres nothing better when an attractive person has an awesome personality. Most attractive people now a days have a personality like a blank piece of paper.
"Aren't you going to primp?" Emma sticks her lip gloss into her pouch and sticks it back into her book sack. I don't need to look a barbie for anyone, if they don't like my natural self then I hope the door hits you on the way out really hard. "You know for Caleb." Emma teased.
"You don't need to primp for anything. We're just going to our last hour." I complain.
"But you might see Caleb though. I'm going to have to pick out y'all's shipping name now you know. I'm not all that good at it but I'll try." Emma winks and leaves the bathroom. I follow behind her and see Caleb talking to one of his buddies. Emma struggles when it comes with shipping names so I have to come up with them. I came up with Jorlope and Violex.
"I want to pick out our shipping name." I go back on topic as I admire how good Caleb looks in khaki and a tie. Why must he look good in everything? Once Caleb notices me he waves and smiles at me while I'm froze in the middle of the hallway.
"You look so creepy." Emma jokes and pulls me by my arm. "And it's not special if the person in the relationship picks out the shipping name. It should come from the best friends." Emma holds her hand against her chest.
"Whatever." I roll my eyes at her. "Just don't make it stupid." I walk into the classroom and I'm just happy that this is my last hour so I can go home. But the thing about going home today is that I have to babysit, Tracy.
I'm in the car with Caleb right now and we're just getting back from school. We're jamming to Crazy Train right now. I didn't know that Caleb liked this song. I thought I was the only young generation that liked music like this but if you ask me, I think that older music is better. He showed me this song by a band name Guns N' Roses and it's called Sweet Child of Mine. I enjoy the jam session until Caleb turns down the radio and I realize that we're already at my house.
"I guess I'll see you later?" Caleb puts his chin in between his thumb and his index finger.
"I'll text you and tell you if you can come over." I unlock the car door and open it while putting my bag over my shoulder.
He nods with a smile and drives off as soon as I get out of the car.
I walk into my house with my mom all dressed up, already. I thought she wasn't suppose to leave until later tonight but now I can have some time with Caleb before the devil shows up on my doorstep.
"Hey sweetie. I'm about to go pick up Tracy. You can come with if you want?" She puts her other heel on her foot.
"No thanks mom," I head to my room and do exactly that. “I'm going to relax in the tub.”
I grab some decent clothes to wear for when Caleb comes over. I put my hand under the water as I run the water to check the temperature. Then I take off all of my clothes and hardly put my foot in the water. Once I get my full body into the tub, I look to my right and see a Hello Kitty shaped soap which made me smile. I love you, Mom.
I grab the bar of soap and smelled it, smells just like strawberries. I cringe my nose at the smell and put it back on the soap dish and closed my eyes to relax.
After spending almost ten minutes in the tub, I finally get out and get dressed. I walk out of my bathroom and spot something very adorable in my bed. If you guessed Tracy then you're wrong, it's Caleb. He's wearing his letterman jacket with some black jeans and black vans.
"You got all cleaned up just for me?" Caleb teased.
"Maybe." I smirked, jumping on the bed right next to him.
I lay back on my pillow then some little girl starts yelling my name to be annoying. Tracy. I shut my eyes tightly in annoyance and Caleb starts stroking my hair which calms me down a little bit.
"I'll be right back."
I make my way to the living room and Tracy is already hyped up on something like chocolate or something. My mom and Natasha are so lucky they don't have to deal with her all night.
"Mom can Caleb come over tonight, please?" I asked.
She starts to give me a cold stare that probably never going to let me have him over. I give her a puppy dog face but she still has her cold stare.
"Mom, please." I whispered so Tracy wouldn't tease me.
"Fine but he has to help you babysit." She heads out the door.
"Yes ma'am." I head quickly to my room to see that Caleb is laying on the stuff animal that I got from the Kitty Karnival that Roy took me to.
I caught chills when I thought about that name.
"Caleb you can come out now."
We head to the living room that was already a disaster from all of Tracy's toys. This girl works really fast. She's distracted by one her 'realistic' baby dolls so me and Caleb just sit on the couch and find something to watch on TV. As soon as Tracy sees Caleb, she drops her toy and sit right on him. She's sitting so close to him that he probably going to be claustrophobic after tonight.
"So Caleb I heard you and Natasha broke up." She puts on an innocent face. Is she really flirting with him? This is just perfect. The demon child has a little crush on Caleb and becomes an innocent little girls around him now that's gold.
"Yeah we did." He nods.
"Well, I'm single and cute." She gives him an innocent smile and flutter her eyelashes. She has Natasha's attitude already. I couldn't help to turn my head the opposite direction of them and start to chuckle. Maybe this night won't be as bad as I thought it would be if she keeps this up.
"Thanks Tracy but I already I have another girlfriend." Caleb lied, winking at me to play along.
Tracy gives me a the bitchy stare that Natasha probably taught her.
"But she's mean." She whispers really loudly.
"Not to me." He smirks at me.
Tracy gives me her bitchy stare again, going to the kitchen.
I flip through the channels and found an episode of Grey's Anatomy that I haven't seen yet. As I'm watching this episode, I hear a loud bang in the kitchen and little kid crying. What has she done now? Tracy makes her way to Caleb and she's grabbing her head.
"Caleb a can of frosting hit me on my head." She crying so much that you can hardly tell what she's saying. I kinda felt bad for her but if she wanted something to eat she could've asked me or Caleb to get her something. "And I'm hungry."
"Come on I'll get you something to eat." Caleb mumbled, holding her hand on the way to the kitchen. I admire how well Caleb is with children especially Tracy, she could bother him instead of me tonight.
Tracy comes back with a snack cake and Caleb comes back with a smile and his lips on my cheek. I blush so hard. He goes back to watching the episode while I begin to stare at Caleb and start playing his messy hair. I love his messy hair so much. I run my fingers slowly through it just in case it gets caught and I rip out his beautiful dirty blonde hair.
"You like my hair?" He laughs and puts his hand on my leg but not in an inappropriate way like he used to.
"Nah, I love it," I joked and continue to play his hair.
He starts to move his hand on my leg up and down and smirking at me. He better watch it.
I turn my face away from his so he doesn't see me blushing like an idiot. He grabs my face romantically to make me look at him and he looks at my lips while he's rubbing his. I think this is it. This is where the passionate kiss comes in and I really think it's going to happen. Caleb leans in closer and our lips barely touch then Tracy throws something at the wall that makes us both jump.
So much for passionate.
