You people HAVE to watch 'Two Dates And A Funeral'! I won't tell too much but I have to say that the KICK is HUGE in this episode!
Oh, and this chapter is in Jack's view.
Okay, deep breath.
It can't go too bad. She can either say 'Yes' or 'No'...like I did to Alexis.
But what if I'm wrong? What if she doesn't really like me like that? What if it's just a complete misunderstanding?
I should probably just go home.
As I'm about to stand up and leave, I hear a voice.
Not just any voice.
I um hi?! Is this how it's going to be all evening?
"What are you doing here? Where's Alexis?" She asks, confused as she puts down her tray. The tray has four drinks on it.
Is she that thirsty or...
Milton, Jerry and Eddie run in but stopped abruptly when they saw us. Then they grabbed a drink each.
"We forgot our drinks."
"Jerry!" Eddie hissed.
"I'm coming. Don't get your panties in a twist."
"I do not wear pan -"
"Guys!" Milton whisper-shouted.
They run out.
"Sooo..." I say, trying to think of something to start the conversation with.
"Sooo..." She repeats.
"Why'd you leave the dance?" I ask.
"I could ask you the same thing." She replies, not really answering the question.
"Oh, I was talking to Alexis." I immediately regret the statement.
She puts on a smile. "That's nice."
I sigh. "Kim, you don't have to smile. I know you don't feel comfortable with me talking about her."
"What makes you say that?" She starts fiddling with her purse.
"I...I know what you're hiding from me."
"Why would I hide things from you? We're supposed to be friends." She says, still not looking up at me.
Ouch. The Friend-Zone. So far this is not looking good.
I get out of the booth and offer a hand to Kim. She very hesitantly takes it.
As I lead us out of the restaurant, she asks, "Where are we going?"
Intertwine our hands as a reply. She goes quiet.
I find what I'm looking for - a field. We sit on the cushioned grass.
"Kim...I need to talk to you."
She looks up but not at me.
Whooooo! Stoppin' right there...for now.
I think I said this in my 'STUFF' story but I want to say it here.
I want to recommend a couple stories:
Paper Dolls by written-at-summer-sunset
Breaking Down by shiqi98
These are so sad; you can feel their emotions. They're well written, and you should totally read 'em!
PS. I am so annoyed with how short my chapter's are getting. Do you have any fillers?
