“How do you even know that this Caleb dude is even a guy? He could be catfishing you for all we know.” Your friend warned, standing at the door and watched you get ready.
“It’s Calum, not Caleb and I’ve been talking to him for some time, so I have a good gut feeling about this.” You phone vibrated once, his kik reply showing on your lock screen “Alright, I’ll meet you there baby girl :)” You smiled at the new nickname he’s been trying out.
Your friend stared at you, scanning you up and down. “Wear my nice shoes with that outfit.” You looked at her through the mirror with a shocked expression. “What? Catfish or not I can’t let you meet someone new with your old, dirty converse.” She stuck her hand out, examining her fingernails.
You smirked, curling a piece of your hair away from your face. “Thanks.”
Her eyes lit up, showing her gratitude. “You look okay. Now go meet this Calum boy.“She rubbed your shoulders, sending you off.
You stood outside the restaurant you planned to meet him at. Nervously checking your phone every minute think that you felt a notification. You were on your heels, rocking back and forth. You looked to your right, looking at everyone from a distance and questioning if it was him.
Negative thoughts ran through your head What if he bailed on me? What if he actually is catfishing me and it’s a chick that didn’t have the guts to see me. Where’s Nev? shit. You leaned back against the brick wall, checking your phone once again. Nothing.
“Y/N?” Your ears perked hearing your name. Your head slowly turned to the voice calling for you. Your eyes meeting a nice light blue buttoned up, then proceeding to go up to meet the face of the torso. You meet with a smiley, tanned boy. His dark hair, with some blonde in, nicely brushed.
You stood up straight, blinking profusely with wonder. Whoa, you thought. “C-Calum?”
“That’s me.” His eyes smiled. “Wow, you’re… wow.”
You blushed “You’re wow as well.” You stared at him, biting your bottom lip taking him in. He wasn’t what you expected. He was taller than you thought and waaay more handsome than the image you had in your mind. You noticed that you were staring too long, “Oh sorry. I’m just surprised. I thought you were going to be a catfish, honestly.”
He chuckled,” Really? Because that’s what I was thinking. Actually, my friend Luke, you know the tall blonde I tell you about sometimes?” You nodded. “Well, the whole time I was getting ready he was nagging in my ear saying that you were probably fake.”
You stifled a laugh, “Seriously? I went thought the same as well.” You both bursted out laughing. Calming down moments later to catch your breath. “Oh man, I need to remember to rub this in her face later.”
“Same.” You peered down at you with fondness in his eyes. “You look absolutely stunning by the way.”
Your breath hitched and you looked down saying a small thank you.
“Let’s go eat. You must be hungry. Sorry for making you wait, baby girl.” He emphasized the baby girl, cheekily grinning when he noticed you turn bright red.
