11. Ethan's Game

Chapter 11:

It was the day of Ethan’s game. I woke up and took a shower. I bathed in lavender shampoo and coconut body wash. A weird combination but I loved it. I got out of the shower and toweled dried my hair and wrapped the robe around me in a dress fashion. I walked out of the bathroom and stood in front of my closet. I pondered my options. I knew it was going to be a 70-degree day so I decided to go with a school long sleeve t-shirt that said “go panthers”, shorts, and a pair of Birkenstocks. Because Ethan is on the JV team his games were on Saturday afternoons which gave me a couple hours before I had to be there. I looked at my phone 9:47 am then decided that coffee sounded amazing. I called up Jessica and she answered Immediately which surprised me because she will sleep in until twelve during the weekend. She answered, “what’s up girl!” I had to take the phone away from my ear she was so loud. “how are you so awake?” I asked. She replied, “girl I never went to sleep.” “well your going to need the energy since I’m dragging you along with me do go to the game later so how does coffee sound?” I asked. She replied “amaze balls!” “wow that’s new,” I laughed. “sweet Ill call Emma and be there around 10:30,” she said. “ok, see you then,” then hung up the phone. I set my phone down and went back to the bathroom then dried and straightened my hair. Then I pulled out my makeup and did light brown eye look and small winged eye liner something that I usually don’t wear but I wanted to try it. I walked out of the bathroom and checked my phone 10:25. I grabbed my phone, wallet/lanyard, and a black baseball cap. I walked down stairs said good morning and goodbye to my parents then walked out the door to see Jess pulling in the drive way. Em was in the front and said, “get in loser, were going shopping.” A quote from one of our favorite movies Mean Girls. She pulled up in her black convertible that her parents got her for her 16th birthday. Jess doesn’t act snobby like the movies portray rich people to be, but her parents are loaded. Both her parents work for a huge company so jess being an only child gets a lot of special things. We pulled out of the drive way and I took of my hat so my hair could flow in the wind. As we drove down the road I saw Luke and Ashton walking down the drive way. I smiled and waved. Luke waved back and Ashton smiled. We got on the highway and jess turned up the radio. All About That Bass blasted from the radio. We belted our hearts out while hysterically waving our arms out of the car while getting some weird looks from strangers. We pulled into a Starbucks drive threw. I ordered a iced mocha and the girls ordered piping hot pumpkin spice lattes. We pulled up to the next widow,paid, got our drinks, and got back on the highway to head to the mall. We decided to do a little shopping to pass the time. We parked the car towards the back of the lot. We got out and I examined the girls outfits. Jess had on a pair of ripped jeans, a school spirit tank top, and a pair of black low-top converse. Em had on a pair of black jeans, a school spirit t-shirt, and a pair of black vans. We walked into the mall with drinks in hand. We wondered into target and went into the clothing section. While the girls’ style leaned more towards the frilly mine leaned more towards the casual. After we were done at target we walked into Sephora. I was dying to see the new twofaced pallet. We tried on some lipsticks and ended up buying some funky lipstick and glitter for the game later. We walked around the mall, said hi to a few people from school, then decided than we were tired so we sat down in the food court. I ordered a basket of fries for the table. I sat down with the fries while Jess and Em were discussing homecoming. As I sat down they grabbed some fries and Em asked, “so who do you want to go to homecoming with?” I gave her a “I don’t know” look. Jess said, “well I totally think Ethan will ask you to go.” “doubt it,” I said while looking down. “oh he so will. He wouldn’t have asked you to go to his game if he didn’t like you,” Em said. “I guess,” I said. “ok Jess you totally have to talk to Ashton,” I said. “you obviously like him and he thinks your cute.” She squealed “he does!” “yeah we talked about it,” I said. She blushed and looked down at the table tracing her finger around the water circle my drink left. We talked about homecoming, dates, and dresses then decided to go back to Jess’ house to get ready for the game. We pulled up into her drive way and walked into her house. It was a beautiful three story house with modern rooms. We walked into the kitchen to grab something to eat. I automatically opened the cupboard that always stored treats. I grabbed a bag of Cheetos and threw them on the table. Jess grabbed some bread, turkey, cheese, and lettuce to make sandwiches. I made my sandwich and took a seat on a bar stool. “when does the game start?” jess asked. “at three,” I replied then glanced at my phone to check the time. It was 1:45. We ate our sandwiches then headed upstairs. I walked into the pink and fluffy room that Jess has had since she was five. I plopped on the bed while Jess and Em pulled out the purple glitter and lipstick we bought earlier. The girls applied the glitter to there lids while I got up and put the lipstick under my eyes in two thick stripes. We finished touching up our makeup and hair and I checked my phone. It was 2:30. I suggested we should leave soon, so we got up and got back in the car and headed to out high school. We pulled into the lot and parked next to the field. It wasn’t as busy as usual varsity games but it was still packed. We grabbed our seats next to Clara and Amelia. I looked around at the bleachers and saw my neighbors Ryan and Kevin. Then I looked out to the field and spotted Ethan. He looked so muscular in his uniform. I waved and he waved back. The game started and we were winning automatically. You could say were not the best school for education but we have a killer sports program. It was the last quarter and we were up by twenty points. During the last 15 seconds of the game Ethan threw the ball and his teammate ran it into the end zone causing us to win the game. Everyone in the bleachers shot up and stared cheering. When the players cleared the field everyone started walking out on to the field to talk to the players. I looked around for Ethan until I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and I was face to face with Ethan. “thanks for coming. It means a lot,” he said. “of course I would come,” I said. Looked past Ethan and saw Em and Jess flirting with a hot football player. I chuckled a little. “well I should probably get going,” I said. “ok. Wait what are you doing for homecoming?” he asked. “um I’m not sure yet,” I replied while looking down. “ok ill keep that in mind,” he said. I blushed and started walking towards the girls. I pulled them away from the football player and we headed to the car. We got in and Jess asked, “so what did Ethan say?” “he asked me if I had any plans for homecoming.” “girl You are so in,” Em said. We sped down the highway and cranked up the music. Jess dropped me off at my house. I walked in to the smell of takeout. Mom yelled from the kitchen, “I didn’t want to cook so I ordered you sesame chicken.” I walked in to the kitchen and sat down at the table, ate my dinner, and listened to my brother explain his day. When I was done I cleaned my dishes, and walked up stairs to my room. I put on my raggedy, giant harry potter shirt that I wear as a night gown then put on my fuzzy socks. I climbed into bed and checked my phone it was only 7:30 but I was exhausted. I turned on an episode of How I Met Your Mother then snuggled up in my blanket and fell asleep.
