Hey, I'm Holly, and though I'm not quite new here, this is my first (and probably only) story. Aha, please read and review, because I'd love to hear what you think, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
So... Um, please enjoy my story :)
Today was the day.
The day I'd been planning for weeks.
The day I, Nico Harris, finally ask out the girl with the long blonde luscious hair that looks like it's been made from gold, the bright beautiful blue eyes, that sparkle like the sea under the sun, and the personality that makes me smile, no matter what mood she's in.
The girl, of my dreams, otherwise known as Tawni Hart.
I've been planning this day for WEEKS! I've got my favourite hat that she helped me pick out last month at the ready, and I'm wearing the clothes she said looked cute just last week. I plan to go up to the dressing room she shares with Sonny, with a dozen pink roses in hand, and then… Well, chances are I'll just wing it from there.
I mean did I really even need a plan? Tawni had OBVIOUSLY been flirting back with me these past few months; I couldn't possibly be reading the signals wrong could I?
Oh well, it's too late to back out now. I have to think positive. Plus chances are she'll say yes. I mean I'm a pretty smooth kinda guy, and everyone knows I got swagger! …Well, by everyone I mean Grady – but he still counts right?
So here I go, through the hall with all our pictures on it, carrying my hopes and dreams on my shoulders and my heart on my sleeve. I carried on walking though the hallway, then up to her door, took a deep breath, and knocked twice.
"GOOD!" I yelled as I stormed out of the cafeteria. GRRRR. Chad could be so mean! Just as I thought I was getting to know him! Just as I thought he wasn't such a bad guy, that he could finally change, he goes around and does THAT! I mean who had the sick idea, to ask me out as a freaking joke! Luckily Chloe and I have been getting on well lately, otherwise she mightn't of stopped him at the last minute, and I might of fallen for it!
You know what hurt the most though? The fact that for a split second I actually believed that he'd like me. I'm always the girl that is friends with everyone, but what if I want more? What if I don't want to just be the best friend?
Tears threatened to fall down my cheeks, and I knew I had to go before somebody (*cough* chad *cough*) saw me. I ran to my dressing room, and locked myself in the closet, and let the tears flow freely.
I heard a knock at the door, but I stayed silent – I didn't want anyone to find me.
"Anyone in here?" Somebody called out. It must be Chad, coming to apologise, though I can't hear his voice very well through the door. Though right now, I don't need an apology. All I want is to be alone, but unfortunately, my sniffle gave my whereabouts away.
"I know you're in here. Can you tell me what's wrong?" I still couldn't face him. I couldn't look into the deep blue eyes, that always seem to pull me into some kind of trance.
"Well, if you won't talk to me, I'll just have to talk to you," I stayed still, listening intently, while holding in a sniffle. "Thing is, I really like you, and I don't just mean as friends! I mean, right now, I'm sitting here, talking to myself because you won't answer, and I'm thinking to myself, is she ok in there? Does she need me to beat up the person that's making her cry?"
Now I'm certainly confused… It's not like Chad to just come out with things like this, and I thought he'd know, that HE'S the one making me cry. I stayed silent as he continued. "Truth is, I think you're the most beautiful girl I've ever met, hearing you cry in there is torture, and all I want is to do is wipe away the tears from your cheeks…"
Well, that's kind of sweet, I thought as I slightly smiled to myself "So I, was wondering…" What? WHAT WERE YOU WONDERING! "Will you go out with me?"
"Yes," I said quietly, yet loud enough for him to hear.
"Really?" He replied excitedly and I could just imagine the smile on his face.
"Yes!" I said louder, half laughing as I started to open the door. But as stepped out it wasn't Chad I was facing. No it was - "Nico?"
Yeah, so that's the first chapter of my story
I know it's short and not particularly good, but it's just the first chapter, so hopefully the next ones will be longer and much better(;
Anyway, Please review & I'll update soon.
