I knocked on Tori's door, and waited for an answer. It was Jade's birthday tomorrow, and I had no idea what to get her. She can be a real mystery sometimes.
The door opened, and Tori stood there with a smile on her face. "Hey Beck," she said, gesturing me to come in. I walked in and sat on her couch.
"What're you doing here," she asked, sitting next to me.
"Well, it's Jade's birthday tomorrow, and I don't know what to get her," I replied, bringing the thought of her gift back to my mind.
"Aw, that's so sweet," she said.
"Do you know what I should do," I asked.
She thought for a little bit, and then said, "You should definitely get her scissors."
Okay, this just got weird.
"Scissors," I asked, raising my eyebrows.
She put on a guilty smile and said, "Yeah, she loves cutting things, so why not?"
"Okay, just spill it."
"Well, Jade was by my locker the other day, so I asked her what she was doing. She said nothing and walked away. I checked my locker and my tote bag was literally in shreds. So I took her scissors and broke them. Then she almost killed me."
I laughed a little, and then said, "Okay, I'll get her some scissors. But there needs to be something, you know... romantic." This is awkward. I never pictured myself asking Tori for advice on romance. I don't think she minded though.
Now she had her signature Tori smile on. "Yay, I'm some kind of love doctor again," she cheered. I smiled and listened to her idea.
*THE NEXT DAY*
Okay, I have the scissors (not a very great gift, but it's better than her lemonade), and a few other things, now I'm just waiting for Jade to come to school late. One of Tori's ideas was to surprise her with a kiss when she comes to school. So that's what I'm gonna do. I'm just standing behind a wall waiting for her to come into the school.
Finally, I hear the clacking of her high-heels in the empty hall. Okay, here goes nothing. Once I see her shadow, I moved out from behind the wall and kissed her.
It was one of my favorite kisses we ever had. I could tell it was gonna be our best day we've spent together, because I really fell in love with this kiss.
After 5 seconds, I finally realized something. She wasn't kissing me back. What did I do wrong? I'm pretty sure I shaved for her (she said she'd never kiss me if I had a mustache), and I didn't get in a fight with her recently. So what happened?
I broke the kiss and looked at her, and I swear my heart literally skipped a beat.
It was Cat.
She was staring at me with a startled look on her face. Before I could explain that it was a mistake, she backed away and ran to her class. Damn, I really ruined this day. Imagine what Jade would do if she found out about this. But she won't. This won't ever happen again.
Then I heard high-heels again. What great timing. "Hey Jade," I said, giving her a kiss. She smiled and we walked to class together. What if she knew…?
