If she was honest with herself, Angela was disappointed that Dustin wasn’t taking her to a restaurant, only the vending machines at the grocery store, but she had a good enough time at the arcade, and they spent some time teaching the parrots in the pet shop some dirty words, before settling down on a park bench to talk and cuddle. The gift he had gotten her was a little old-fashioned, but she was determined to wear it and learn to love it. Just like she was determined to love Dustin. She just wasn’t sure all the time if what they had really was love. She liked him, it was exciting to be with someone who was known around school as a bad boy. And he had lots of good sides, like being nice to his little brother and doing his best to help out his mom. And he was always nice to her. But was that love? Real love?
