F ebr U ary - Valentines Day competition

My name is Eron, pronounced, "Air-on". It's really Eros, but I gotta keep cover, people study about me. Most people would know me as Cupid and well, that is true. Every February - gross - I find 5 people their true loves. IF I don't find their true loves, my grandfather, Zeus, punishes me by taking away my wings and bow for the rest of my life. Do I get anything good out of it? Nope, just me doing a favor for everyone else.

10. Chapter 8: Plans

Priya: So, it’s been a while of talking, and I just want you to know, I actually like you.

 

     Wait for what? Am I dreaming? I hope I’m not dreaming. PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS REAL. Priya Bloom, a beautiful, smart, and sarcastic red-headed girl told me she likes me? Well, she can’t like me…I’m not who she thinks she likes. I was laying on the couch again, just waiting for my mom to peer over my shoulder, so I could yell, “HAHA SOMEONE DOES LIKE ME!” in her face.

Me: How can you like me, if you don’t even know me?

Priya: I don’t know…Something about you makes me smile.

Me: Priya, everything about you makes me smile 😊

Priya: How can I meet you. There has to be a way

Me: We can’t

Priya: Why not?

Me: Because I’m afraid you aren’t going to agree with the results.

Priya: You could look like a slug and I’d still like you.

     I could look like a slug and she would still like me? She was so sexy through text, god. It breaks my already non-existent heart that we can’t be together. February was really pulling the string on a broken bow, wasn’t it?

            My mom came into the room and scoffed. She peeked at my phone and made obnoxious noises with her mouth.

“So cheesy. You can’t be with her you know.” She reminded, pointing her finger at me.

“I know, you don’t have to remind me.”

“Well just making sure.”

“Oh – by the way, I met your prostitution client at school. Real clever mom. You know you could get arrested for shit like that?” I stated, shoving my phone into my pocket. She sighed and slapped her hands down on her thighs.

“Henry? Oh, he was just – uh –“

“Mom, no need to lie. He confirmed it so…”

            She ignored me and went back to her kitchen cleaning. I didn’t do crap around the house, but hey, at least I could make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich better than her. Today our dishes were neatly washed and put away. The coffee stains were gone, along with the piles of irrelevant books I lent to Daphne.

            Speaking of Daphne. I screwed AJ so hard yesterday. He chased Daphne everywhere around town while she wasn’t interested, and she begged her dad to call the police, but instead – he gave her a knife and told her to kill him. This shit is all over the news! AJ was trying to reason with her, but she stabbed him in the left arm. Someone witnessed it all and called the police. So, yea,

 

Daphne Blue is in jail.

 

            Do I feel like an asshole? A little bit. But this isn’t going to stop me from finding three more couples. This year’s couples were so strange. I mean Pandora loved herself, and AJ was visiting Daphne in jail every day. Now I have to find three more, and I’m going to still have a purpose on this earth, HOORAH!

 

Me: You just can’t understand – literally.

Priya: Oh, come on, can’t we just talk in person?

Me: Hmm, how would we do that without you seeing me?

Priya: I know, we can meet at the rave cave. No lights, no nothing.

Me: Sounds smart.

Priya: REALLY?!

Me: I’m down

 

“Eron, you better not be making plans to see Priya.” Mom said, scrubbing a dish. How the hell did she know I was doing that?

“Mom, it’s going to be dark – “

“ERON! I said no. You know what? I know you aren’t even close to finishing your task, so you can shoot her and make her fall in love with Henry!”

            What? Did she seriously just suggest that I hook up the girl I love the ugliest dude in school? Not to mention, the guy that my mom had affairs with! I rolled my head in a circular motion.

“Mom…”

“Eron, you have to. It’d the only way to break your heart in a less painful way.”

“Wow, you’re supportive.”

“Exactly! Please Eron…remember, you’re mine.”

            I sighed and nodded my head. This probably sucks ass, but If I got to meet Priya, then I was down for anything. I went to my bathroom, freshened up, and went to the subway for a ride to school.

 

But shit, I have to make a *gag* valentines card for Priya.
