4. Ice Cream

My stomach rumbles and I look at the clock. I’ve been laying here for an hour and I’m not feeling much better. I sigh and stand up, leaving my room in search of something sweet. I open the freezer and smile when I see pistachio ice cream. I grab the container and a spoon and lounge on the couch. I turn on the tv and decide to watch a thriller to get my mind off my situation. I savor each bite of ice cream, enjoying the slight sweetness and crunch.

I hear the front door close and I jump and my ice cream container flies into the air and onto the floor. I turn to see Justin laughing at me.

“It’s just me.” He barely gets out before doubling over, “Your face was priceless!”

I turn away and blush. Why does he always me blush? “That’s not funny!” I saying trying to not to laugh with him.

“Come on, it was.” Justin takes off his jacket and sits next to me.

“Okay, it was a little funny.” I say not holding back my laughter. We laugh together, both holding our stomachs. Once our laughter dies down and I wipe the tears from my eyes, he picks up the ice cream container and sets it on the coffee table.

“I have never heard of pistachio ice cream.” I look at him we share a smile.

“I hadn’t either until a few months ago until I tried on a whim. It’s my favorite. I would share with you, but I ate it all.” I shrug

“That’s okay, you can share next time,” he playfully bumps shoulders with me and I feel warmth linger from his touch.

I ignore it and look down. “Next time,” I agree quietly.

A few seconds of silence go by and Justin leans back on the couch. He puts his feet up and glances at me, “Is everything okay?”

“Oh,” I pause for a second and frown. “I’m fine, just having a bad day.”

“Me too,” he says sadly. I pretend to focus on the movie, but my brain keeps thinking about how close he is.

“What’s wrong?” I ask, glancing at him.

He sighs deeply, “I had to end things with Carly. For real this time.” He crosses his arms. “She didn’t take it well. She kept making a scene in the coffee shop, it was so embarrassing.”

I look back at the tv, hoping he doesn’t see the slight smile on my face. Now is not the time. Get your shit together, I yell at myself. I take a deep breath and say, “That’s not good.”

“Not at all. I’m sure the whole town knows about it now.” He runs a hand across his face. “Oh, well. I’m just glad that I finally realized that she isn’t good for me.”

I nod, not sure what to say.

“Why are you having a bad day?”

“Oh, it’s nothing.” I stand up and go into the kitchen, throwing away the empty container and putting the spoon in the sink.

I hear Justin behind me, “Come on, Natalie. I just told you my problem. It’s only fair you tell me yours.” He looks at me and lifts an eyebrow.

“Fine.” I can’t believe I’m going to say this. “My crush doesn’t-” I am interrupted by the front door closing. We both turn towards the noise.

“Hey guys! I have great news!” Georgia says excitedly. A smile is on her face and her eyes are dreamy. Thank goodness.

Justin speaks first, ”What?”

“I am meeting Cameron in a week! He is coming here since he will be on leave!” She screams, jumping up and down. I’m sure the whole state heard.

I smile, “That’s amazing, G.”

She grabs my arm, “Come on, you have to help me plan my outfit!” I glance at Justin and see him frown, while Georgia yanks me into her room.
