This is my second fanfic. My first one, "Gordo to the Rescue," deals with more adult issues. This time I wanted to play around with Point of view (PoV). This story starts right at the end of "Bye-Bye Hillridge Junior High." Lizzie's POV is told through her journal entries. Gordo's POV is told through his video recordings (you know, like Tru did in Tru Confessions). The same story may be told from both perspectives, or they may tell different stories. Also, there are instances where neither Gordo nor Lizzie's POV is used, but rather just a simple narrative format.

Lizzie's Diary

May 24th 4:56 PM

It was a spare of the moment thing! Gordo had been so sweet to me all week, telling me that he would never leave me and that I was such a great friend, and then that incredibly sweet note in my year book! Okay, maybe I should slow down. I kissed Gordo. I know what you are thinking. "He's your best friend and you shouldn't have done that and now things will get complicated." Well, it wasn't a real kiss. I kissed him on the cheek. While taking our 8th grade group picture. So that the kiss is now recorded on film for the rest of our lives. But that's no big deal, right?

Gordo seemed to think it was. People kept asking me things like, "Lizzie, are you and Gordo a couple? What's going on? Oh my gosh, it's about time!" He pulled me over to the side. Here is how our convo went:

He asks, "What was that?"

I act all innocent, of course, and pretend to not know what he is talking about.

"The kiss," He clarifies.

"Then I guess it was a kiss," I answer sarcastically.


"I read what you wrote in my year book."

"Lizzie! I wasn't finished! I wasn't even close to being finished!"

"Gordo, you have been really sweet this week. It was a spur of the moment thing. Sorry. I shouldn't have kissed you."

He shouts "No, no!" and then tries to act all cool again. "I mean, its cool. No big deal." He clears his throat and looks away. It is SO obvious that he likes me. For once, Kate wasn't just playing a dirty trick on me. The whole class was watching us, so we quickly separated and pretended to be thinking about something besides each other.

Not that I was thinking about Gordo. I mean, Ethan was looking nice that day. He was wearing khakis and a tie and man sandals.. okay, okay. I was thinking about Gordo. I didn't even pay attention to Ethan. But its not like I like Gordo or anything. He is my best friend. I don't like him like that. Really.

Gordo's Cam

May 24th 5:12 PM

Nobody knows I keep this video journal, and the only person I would actually let know about it is the one person I can't let see it.

I finally knew what I wanted to write in Lizzie's year book. I had it all planned out in my mind. I was going to tell her exactly how I felt. I wrote down the first few sentences, and then I went to sign someone else's yearbook. Lizzie read what I hadn't finished writing yet! And the worst thing is that those two lines said nothing except "You rock. Don't ever change. Only I really mean it." That was all that I had written so far! She has no clue how I feel about her, and now that my plan has fallen through, I don't know what to do to tell her.

But I had a good day today, despite that. A very good day indeed. Lizzie kissed me! Can you believe it! Well, she just kissed me on the cheek. But she did it right when the photographer of our eighth grade picture snapped the camera, so now everyone's picture has Lizzie leaning over and kissing me on the cheek. I am sure I had this big goofy smile on my face, because I was overwhelmed with happiness. Everyone saw, and Lizzie didn't even seem to mind! I pulled her over to a secluded area, and asked her what just happened. She played all innocent, batting her eyelashes and giving me that "Who, me?" look. She does the innocent look very well. She does any look very well. Finally, she said, "That was a kiss." Well, I don't really constitute a kiss on the cheek as a real kiss. I would like to show her a real kiss! Anyway, I became a little perturbed about her reading my note before it was finished. Then she apologized for the kiss, and I almost lost my calm. I had to be sure that she knew it was fine.

Another good thing about today: I didn't see her look Ethan's way once. Finally, maybe she realizes what an idiot he is. Now if only she would realize what is right in front of her.
