You got it boss! I am just an employee to my followers. I am
content with this haha
truth or dare?” A girl from across the circle asked you with a devious smile.
You had gotten out of answering any weird questions, or doing stupid things up
to this point. The group was having a hoot bugging one another and you happily
sat back and watched. One of the guys ran up the street naked (minus a watermelon
being held over his groin) while poorly singing Britany Spears. Josh had gotten
a couple spoonful’s of god knows what (three went into the kitchen and came out
with what looked like diarrhea meets blood clot. You had to admit, you felt bad
for Josh; but not bad enough to volunteer to take it).
truth I guess.” You squeaked. You were beyond nervous because it was this girl—the
one with the dark hair and smile that said she knew everything. You could tell
she saw right through you (considering she had been making comments about you
and Josh needing to date already all night). You had no idea what you would be
asked and it terrified you; you’d rather not have to admit your love for the
older brother of a kid you tutored. Especially not in front of anyone.
I thought you would’ve chosen dare.” She shrugged, leaning back on her hands
before she thought for a few seconds. “I’ll let you off easy because it’s your
first time hanging with us. Who in this room do you find the cutest?” She smiled,
a friendly one. Or was it deceitful? God you needed to stop being so paranoid.
a pretty princess!” You laughed before looking around the room for your next
victim. “Uh, Josh? Truth or dare?” You asked, not quite knowing what to ask.
You hadn’t played this game since you were in middle school; and their version
was a bit more extreme than you remembered ever playing.
What do you want me to do?” Josh smiled at you, which honestly caused your
heart to melt inside. You loved his cheesy smile and the way his eyes did the
thing. Stupid boy.
have an idea!” Someone chirped from the other side of the room—Paisley you
think her name was? “Josh kiss the cutest person in the room! And do not grab a
fucking mirror!” She laughed, causing your face to burn. Like the little narcissist
you never expected yourself to be.
He smiled over at you before gently pressing his mouth against yours. It was
sweet and short. Too short. But you did not just think that—no. “Y/N here is
the cutest girl on the planet.” He finished, giving you a quick side hug before
moving on in the game. You sat in complete shock at his words while the rest of
the group kept playing. Was he just kidding? Or did he actually mean it? From
the way he kept laughing and joking with everyone you doubted the kiss meant
anything to him besides a stupid dare.
to leave so early, but I have to be up early tomorrow. I’ll talk to you guys
later though!” You excused yourself, hearing a chorus of “bye!”s from behind you
as you scurried out of the house. Resisting the urge to cry as you left. Of
course you let yourself fall that easily; of course you let yourself break just
as easily too.
overreacting?” You groaned, resting your head on your hand as you ranted to your
mother that next morning. Though she had her moments, she was your rock in
moments like these. “Like I really think I have feelings for him; and the way
he acted when I helped his brother I thought he felt the same way. But at that
stupid party he just laughed and acted like kissing me was a joke!” You were
resisting tears once more, but looking at your mom who saw you so vulnerable
right now made it impossible. You felt like a little girl once again, crying to
her mother because she scraped her knee on the pavement. Except this time your
heart had been broken by a silly boy.
overreacting just a tad. I’m hardly surprised. You’ve always had a flair for
the dramatic.” Your mother laughed to herself, face falling to a serious expression
when she realized you were far from in the mood for jokes. “Seriously though;
he probably didn’t mean for it to come off that way. Have you talked to him
since?” You awkwardly shrugged and shook your head. “Well. That’s the first
thing you need to do. Talk to him, see how he feels. You’re making assumptions
off nothing dear.” You sighed, why must mothers always be right? You would have
to face Josh eventually; you two went to the same school—unless.
can you homeschool me?” You asked, hearing her laugh in response. Maybe that
won’t be happening.
were heartbroken. 2 weeks had went by since the party and you barely saw Josh.
Whenever you did he would give you a quick “hi” before leaving in what seemed
like a hurry. Maybe he didn’t care after all. You tried texting and calling,
and even waiting for him at his locker. But nothing worked; he seemed to be
“Y/N! Hey! I’m Tyler nice to meet
you; I have a message. Go to the music room at lunch. Don’t be late missy!” A
guy with fluffy brown hair told you as soon as you walked into school—he was
the captain of the basketball team (or so you thought; you didn’t exactly indulge
yourself into school sports). You merely shrugged off the weird encounter, but
curiosity kept gnawing at your brain; what was happening at lunch?
Some guy named Tyler said to come here at lunch. Here I am!” You called into
the dark room before flicking the light switch. The sight caused you to jump;
that guy from earlier sat at a piano with Josh beside him.
got this.” You heard Tyler whisper before Josh awkwardly began pressing the
keys down. It took you a second but you soon found yourself singing along in
your mind—he was playing your absolute favorite song. Clumsily, but he was
still playing it.
few minutes of his awkward piano playing; Josh turned to you with an awkward,
and hopeful expression.
you probably hate me; but these last two weeks have been filled with me
learning piano so I could play for you. Because your voice is like music to my
ears; and your presence gives me the same feeling I get when I listen to my
favorite song. I love the feeling, and I really like you. So will you maybe,
possibly go on a date with me?” Josh asked, his eyes wider than you’ve ever
seen them as he waited for a response. You couldn’t help but close the distance
between the two of you and wrap your arms firmly around his neck.
was amazing, of course. I’d love to go on that date. As long as it doesn’t
involve your friends or truth or dare!” You laughed, pressing your face against
Josh’s shoulder as you heard the two boys high five. Who knew simple tutoring
sessions would result in this?
