N.B. I don't own any Lizzie McGuire characters unfortunately. This story is for all LG fans only- you'll not like it if you're not! Also the song is from the Lizzie McGuire movie and belongs to that! Song words in italics!
14-year-old Lizzie McGuire sat on her window box and looked out at the sky outside. She started singing softly to herself.
"Have you ever seen such a beautiful night? I could almost kiss the stars they're shining so bright. When I see you smiling I go, oh oh oh. I would never want to miss this; in my heart I know what this is. This is what dreams are made of; this is what dreams are made of. I've got somewhere I belong, I've got somebody to love, this is what dreams are made of."
Lizzie smiled to herself, thinking of the night in Rome she had been on stage singing that very song. Gordo had helped her all through her experience and she had thanked him with a kiss. After weeks of denying her feelings she had finally realised that she fancied Gordo, and knew he liked her too. Unfortunately Lizzie's parents had grounded her so she was stuck in her house unable to tell Gordo how she felt. Lizzie was brought from her daydream by a knock on her door.
"Come in" she said swinging her legs over the edge of the box so she could stand up. She turned to adjust the cushions and didn't see who entered the room. She was shocked when she heard a male clearing his voice, a voice she knew and liked…. a lot. She turned round with a confused look on her face.
"How, what?" she asked, flustered.
"You're parents decided you'd learned your lesson and have allowed me to visit." Gordo said, smiling.
This smile made Lizzie feel weak at the knees. Lizzie also knew that this was her perfect chance to tell Gordo how she felt about him.
"What are you smiling about, Liz?" Gordo asked.
"It's weird." Lizzie said.
"What is?" Gordo asked.
"You remember Ethan's murder mystery party? After everybody had left we were standing outside and you were about to ask me something?" Lizzie said, trying to keep a straight face.
Gordo had flushed a deep scarlet and was attempting not to look too embarrassed.
"Well what were you really going to ask me Gordo?" Lizzie asked, resisting the urge to just go and kiss Gordo.
"I was…I was.. I was going…" Gordo broke off.
"To ask me out?" Lizzie finished for him.
Gordo's eyes nearly popped out of his head.
"I'll take that as a yes then." Lizzie said, letting out a small giggle.
"What's so funny?" Gordo asked, also smiling.
"Well if you'd ever gotten round to it, I would have said yes…..but seeing as you never did I never got the chance." Lizzie said, teasing Gordo.
"You would have?" Gordo asked.
"Yep, but I guess you don't want to anymore so it doesn't matter." Lizzie said, biting her lip trying not to let Gordo see she was dying for him to ask her again.
"No! I do I do, if you want to that is." Gordo said, his hands twitching.
"Well you better ask me properly then, " Lizzie said smiling.
"Do you want to come to the Digital Bean with me?" Gordo asked, smiling slightly.
"As a date? Or just as friends?" Lizzie asked, trying hard not to smile.
"A date….." Gordo said, turning the colour of Lizzie's pink bedspread.
"Great, I'll meet you there at 5. Oh." Lizzie's face suddenly fell.
"What? Don't you want to come?" Gordo asked, not smiling anymore.
"I do, it's just, I'm grounded. I can't go out." Lizzie said, trying not to cry.
"No problem, we'll have a date right here, right now." Gordo said.
