Author's Note: Hey everyone! I'm developing a new story based off of some of my favorite romantic comedies, as well as my favorite Disney Channel TV show, Sonny with a Chance. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
Her eyes grazed over her thin, blonde companion. The latter was passing on a mischievous glance to the serious former. An angry comment broke their silence at the posh restaurant.
"I can't believe you did this," Sonny complained.
"I'm just looking out for my best friend," Tawni grinned.
Sonny rolled her eyes and pushed back her long, brown tresses. She was an independent, happy woman, but no one else seemed to believe that. Her close friends had long been pushing her to get into a relationship. The brunette, however, believed that a casual relationship was a frivolous one; for Sonny Tristan Munroe, career defined life. Her job as the marketing director for a large corporation certainly demanded effort and time, time not wasted on just any date.
Yet, here she was, waiting for the blind date Tawni unexpectedly set her up with. She came along to ensure that Sonny didn't bail on the guy like she did last time to the 'hot blonde' Tawni set her up with.
"Oh, he's here. Have fun!" Tawni winked as she left the table. Sonny noticed the flirtatious girl exchange pleasantries with…Chase, was it?
He admittedly did have gorgeous, gelled brown hair that perfectly framed his lightly tan skin and sharp features. "Chase" walked over to Sonny's table and shook her hand. His velvet smooth voice brought upon another surprise. "Hi, I'm Lance." Lance? Sonny thought to her. Where had she gotten the name Chase from? She clearly paid less attention to Tawni than she thought she did.
Sonny grumbled, "Hey. Sonny."
Lance seated himself in front of her, initiating conversation by explaining his relation to Tawni (a distant cousin) and the number of baseball games his team's won in the past season (all of them). A professional athlete with airs to match no other? Sonny braced herself for the long night ahead.
Sonny made it through the evening…somehow, but was aching to reach home. Damn Tawni and her stupid blind dates. Her gray pencil skirt and blue blouse were quickly replaced with loose cotton candy colored pajamas.
Just as Sonny settled in to use her laptop on the bed, her phone rang. "Call from Tawni Hart," the automated voice said. She hated that thing, but always forgot how to turn it off. Sonny groaned, but picked up the phone.
"So…" the sickly sweet voice drawled. "How did it go?"
Sonny was ready to scream at her, but instead chose to pleasantly say, "Tawni dear, if only you knew what kind of jackass you set me up with."
Tawni bit her lip before apologizing and expressing her concern that Sonny would be dateless at her family reunion in two weeks. The industrious girl argued with her saccharine friend, declaring her lack of desire to tangle herself up with a man at this stage. Tawni gave up for the night as Sonny resumed working.
"She'll never let this go," Sonny moaned.
However, Tawni wasn't the only one of concern here. Sonny's parents eagerly wanted to see their 27-year-old daughter get married and have a marvelous life. Sonny was not one to sacrifice her happiness for someone else. As kind, graceful, and supportive defined her, so did stubborn and self-sufficient.
A few weak ideas circled Sonny's head as methods to get her loved ones to STOP talking about her love life. Tell them she never wants to get married? No. Run away? Weak, Sonny, weak. Date a bunch of guys and prove men are worthless? Time consuming.
Suddenly, her fingers stopped typing. Get a fake boyfriend. One of her family's biggest arguments with her was that she never stayed with a guy long enough to see if it would actually work. At least with this plan, they'll think she tried. Where could she get someone willing to do that?
Author's Note: Now, we all know how this is going to go. I hope you're liking the story so far and have subscribed/favorited it. If not, let me know why; I'd certainly like to improve my writing. Also, please check out my Chad/Sonny videos on my YouTube channel: FreeToLive603. Thanks!
