"Jenny, I needed to ask you something." Brad said, real quietly, even though he didn't quite know what he was even doing. Jenny looked up, "What is it, Brad?" she said. Brad tried his best to pop this question, but he just shook his head,"Uh, well, um...uh, n-never mind." Jenny went back to what she was doing, and Brad had a really bad feeling in the pit of his stomach, he didn't know how he was supposed to ask jenny to the dance, but he knew that he had to do it soon, because the dance was this Friday. He only had three days left, but that seemed like enough time, sort of. He kept trying to ask Jenny, but he always went blank right when he looked back up at her, he wasn't if he actually liked Jenny or not, "Why is this so hard for me?" he kept telling himself,"It's not like I like her more than a friend, right?" He was trying his best to answer this last question, when Jenny asked,"Uh, Brad it's almost dark out. Shouldn't you be going back to your house?" Brad kept his trail of thought as best he could, while he grabbed his backpack and headed down the steps.Jenny noticed Brad's strange behavior, but didn't care more or less.
"Oh, there you are, Bradley!" said Brad's mom as he walked in the door. "Why are you always out every day, can't you rest for just one day, and talk on the phone with your other friends?" she said, trying her best to get Brad to stop what he was doing. She didn't know this girl that he was seeing, and she didn't want to trust her just yet. And although her attempts were her best, Brad hadn't paid any attention to what she had said, in fact he didn't even here her. His head was filled with so many questions that he didn't hear a word. Brad's mom was still worried when Brad snapped out of thought when his little brother came into his room. Tuck looked at Brad, who was staring into space, until he walked up to Brad and said,"What are you doing?" Brad turned around, "Uh, nothing." He knew that Tuck would have a smile on his face, and when he turned around, he did. "So why haven't you been talking at all? I mean, you haven't talked to me, yelled at me, even noticed me until now, and you haven't said a word to mom!" Brad turned around, "Uh, I've just been thinking about stuff, that's all." He smiled at Tuck, but it was fake. Tuck went downstairs, "If I want to find anything out, then I have to do it the hard way." He took his mom upstairs to Brad's room, Brad was still sitting on his bed, looking out the window and Jenny's house. His mom entered the room and Brad suddenly came back to reality. "Oh, uh, hey, Mom." His mom sat down. "Brad, what's been going on lately? You haven't said a word today." his mom asked. Brad looked down, "I'm positive Tuck's already told you about Jenny." His mom looked at him,"Well, yes. But I know that Tucker doesn't know things that you do. And I need to know, because I'm worried." Tucker was standing right outside of Brad's room, behind the closed door. "This'll be good." he said to himself. Brad just kept looking down, "Well, there's a dance coming up at the school, and I really wanted to go with Jenny, but everytime I try to ask her, something weird happens." Brad's mom looked concerned more than usual, "What do you mean?" Brad wasn't sure about telling his mom this, but he desperately needed help finding out so he said,"Well, My stomach always feels weird whenever I try to tell her, but I don't know why. And then after that I always end up thinking abouthe same thing, but I still don't know why." Brad's mom smiled, "Aw, he has a crush, that's cute." she thought. But she couldn't tell him because, One: It was his first, and Two: It was on a robot. But when Tucker found out, he quietly crept to his room, and then cloed the door. Right at the same minute he shut it, he started laughing uncontrollably. "Oh, yeah, that was definately worth it!" he kept saying to himself. He eventually stopped laughing enough to go downstairs for something to eat, and found Brad and his mom there, too. He could hardly control the snickering, and he knew that if Brad heard, he'd be dead for sure. "Uh, what's going on?" Tuck asked his mom. He had to ask his mom, because Brad was sitting at the table staring off in space. "Oh, nothing dear. Do you want something to eat?" his mom asked him. "No thanks." he said as he sat down. He kept trying to think why Brad would have a crush on Jenny, but all that mattered to him at the moment was that his brother had a crush, and it was on his best friend. But, the point that Jenny was a robot never seemed to bother him at all, and it didn't matter to Brad either, apparently.
