Part One: Take My Hand, Live While You Can
"Can you believe that tomorrow is officially our last day of summer?"
I asked Miranda and Gordo who had both taken a seat on my bed.
"So what do you want to do?" Gordo wondered as I shrugged.
"I don't know."
"How about the Digital Bean?" Miranda suggested as Gordo and I
agreed. So there we were, off to the Digital Bean.
When we arrived, it looked like everyone was there, including the one
and only Ethan Craft, who I was so fully over . or so I hoped.
"Oh look Lizzie. There's Ethan." Miranda teased as we all took a seat
around the table.
"I know, but I'm so fully over him." I told her as Gordo left to go
get us something to drink.
"Lizzie!" I heard a familiar voice call as I turned around in my
seat. It was Ethan.
"Oh. Hi." I squeaked as he took a seat across from me. Miranda and I
exchanged glances. We both knew what had happened the last time Ethan sat
with us and it wasn't good.
"So, what's going on with you?" Miranda inquired, seeing that I was
speechless at the moment.
"I'm just chillin'. You know I got back from Florida a few days ago."
Ethan explained as Gordo arrived with our drinks.
"Thanks." I chirped, taking a sip.
"Gordon," He said as Gordo waved, probably wondering why Ethan was sitting
with us like we were his best buddies.
Everyone was silent for what seemed like forever. Finally, Miranda
spoke up. "How was Florida?"
"You'll never believe this but . it was really hot out there." Ethan
retorted as if it were a huge secret. I looked over at him and smiled. I
see some things never change. "Come on guys. It was a joke." He elaborated.
"Florida was cool . things were a little insane, but what should I expect?"
My jaw dropped. How did Ethan learn how to speak English . since when
was he actually smart? "I- I've been to Florida before and it's really
nice." I added.
"Cool . I'll see you guys later . like tomorrow." He joked again,
leaving the table only to be bombarded by Kate and Claire. To my surprise,
me pushed past them and started talking to Calli Carlajon.
"Do you see that?" I exclaimed as Miranda and Gordo followed my gaze.
"Yeah, they've been going out all summer." Gordo declared.
"DO you realize how unfair that is? She is like the most unpopular
girl from school and she's going out with the coolest, hottest guy. How is
it possible that I didn't know about it?"
"Lizzie. I thought you were him." Miranda tried to get me to calm
"I am." I told them. "You're over him." I repeated to myself.
"When do you think I should tell Lizzie that you're moving to
Seattle?" Gordo questioned me as I shrugged and we continued walking hand
and hand. There were a lot of things that Lizzie didn't know . including
this new thing that I have for Gordo, which kind of scares me sometimes .
"I don't think I should tell her yet."
"She's going to find out anyway. Just tell her now." Gordo suggested
as I sighed. He was right, was usual, but I just couldn't. Not yet.
"I'll tell her, but now yet . I still have to get use to it."
"Miranda, you've known about it for two months."
"I know, but I'm going to miss you and Lizzie so much. I love you
guys!" I exclaimed with a smile as he hugged me and I got that really
tingling feeling through my body.
