"Tell us ALL about it! Every tiny detail."
"Everything?" Cagalli asked and raised her eyebrow.
"Everything!" Miriallia cheered. Lacus nodded quickly in agreement.
"Yes spill all the detail we want to know simply EVERYTHING!" Dearka cheered from the kitchen. Cagalli smirked and shook her head.
"Shut up DEARKA!" Cagalli yelled into the kitchen. She giggled a little and finally said. "Okay, okay. I'll tell you as much as I can." She began to describe the date in complete detail. She talked about how long it took her to get ready and then she discussed how he picked her up and she even talked about the restaurant.
"Did he kiss you?" Miriallia asked eagerly, she leaned forward on her seat. Cagalli turned away.
"Yes when he dropped me off," she began but was cut off by a collective, "OOOOOOO"
She rolled her eyes.
"Guys! Let me finish!"
"Did you invite him in?" Miriallia raised her eyebrows and Cagalli groaned.
"No we just kissed and it was very brief! Nicol was waiting in the car."
"So this is all well and good, but the real question is," Lacus began. "Are you going to see him again?" Cagalli blushed.
"I hope so, I mean he hasn't called yet, should I call him?"
"NO!" Lacus and Miriallia said at the same time. "He'll call," Lacus said putting a hand on her shoulder.
"What are my hooligan employees doing now?" Mu asked as he and Murrue walked into the restaurant. "It's almost opening time and you're all just sitting around." He laughed loudly and made his way into the kitchen. "Get to work!"
"I'm glad he's always so cheerful," said Lacus as she stood up and smoothed out her shirt and pants.
"Me too," Miriallia said and began to make her way back to the kitchen. "Oh and don't worry Cags. He'll call," Miriallia said. She nodded but Cagalli knew she'd be checking her cell phone all day just waiting for a call.
"So…" Nicol began. "Are you going to call her?" Athrun nodded quickly.
"I really like this girl. Do you think I shouldn't call her?" Meyrin groaned.
"This is why guys shouldn't be in charge of setting up the dates! Of course you should call her. You clearly both really like each other, so call! Don't be such a wuss." Nicol and Athrun stared blankly at Meyrin. They were both shocked that she actually spoke her mind. "Look, if we didn't work together, I'd hope you'd call me Nicol," Meyrin finished. Nicol smiled.
"Really? That's great cause I was just about to make a call…" Meyrin giggled.
"I'll be waiting!" she said returning to her desk.
"So I'll call…but what if she doesn't answer or what if she already has plans or something…" he stammered.
"Now you're just making excuses! If you're so worried about this then go to her restaurant at the end of the day and ask her to dinner. If she can't go tonight ask her for another night, say you want to get to know her on her own." Nicol said.
"She'll be so ecstatic!" Meyrin cheered. Athrun sighed and then smiled.
"I think you guys are right! I think I should just wait until the end of the day and surprise her. I think she'll like that," he said determinedly.
"Go get her!" Meyrin said. "But first go get some computers. You and Nicol are going to be late if you don't get going!" she said. "And you know Luna won't be happy!"
"Shit!" Nicol said grabbing his bag and he and Athrun ran out the door.
"So Joule, when are you and Shiho going on your date?" Cagalli asked eager to find out when he would be going on the date. She began to clean the tables as he began to place chairs on top of the tables so they could sweep. He shrugged and didn't respond. "You didn't ask her!" Yzak turned away. "Oh my god! C'mon grow a pair!" she yelled.
"HEY! Attha! Why don't you shut your mouth! No one wants to listen to you!" He grunted and stormed off in towards the back of the store.
"Joule is being such a baby!" she said to Stellar, who just responded by staring at her. Cagalli thought it was kind of strange that Stellar rarely talked. She frowned, but shrugged and went on with her business. She was still semi-depressed that Athrun hadn't called, but Lacus had reassured her that sometimes guys like to wait it out. Still, Cagalli was really hoping for a phone call later on that night.
Meanwhile Athrun was outside in the car staring at the flowers her had picked out.
"I hate this," he said to Nicol. Nicol shrugged.
"Sorry dude, but at least you know she likes you! You made it through one date right?" he stated. Athrun nodded and swallowed.
"Ok here I go," he said and rose up out of the car. He made his way towards the entrance and knocked on the window. A girl with long pink hair pointed to the sign and shook her head. Athrun tapped on the glass again and pointed to the flowers. The girl opened the door reluctantly.
"Sorry sir. We're closed."
"No no no! You don't understand, I'm here to give these Cagalli," he whispered and pointed to the flowers.
"Ohmygosh!" Lacus whispered. "You're Athrun! My god, she's been waiting for you to call ALL day," she said.
"Really?" Athrun smiled sweetly and Lacus nodded.
"Yeah go surprise her," she said.
"LACUS! ARE YOU LETTING PEOPLE IN AFTER HOURS?" Cagalli yelled from the other room. "IF IT'S MY BROTHER I am going to…kill… you," she finished finally as she walked into the entrance and saw Athrun standing with flowers. "Oh…wow," she said, completely speechless.
"Hey Cagalli, sorry I didn't call, but I really really wanted to see you, so I decided to drop by, hope that's alright," he said. Cagalli walked slowly towards him and grabbed his cheeks and pulled her lips to meet hers.
"You're such a dork!" she said happily.
"In a good way?" he asked. She nodded quickly.
"This is amazing!" she said. Lacus and Miriallia couldn't help but giggled at their friend's happiness.
"So I was hoping we could get dinner tomorrow night or something?" he suggested. Cagalli smiled and nodded taking the flowers from his hand.
"I would love to," she smiled and he kissed her cheek.
"Great I'll pick you up at 8?"
"Sound's great," she smiled and he kissed her one more time as he left. After he'd shut the door. Cagalli began jumping up and down cheering.
"Ok normally I don't get all squeaky, but OH MY GOD!" she cheered.
"I'm glad you're excited!" Athrun said and Cagalli went wide eyed and turned around to face him. "I left my keys," he shrugged and smiled. "See ya tomorrow!" he waved.
The girls left and Cagalli held the flowers tight to her chest as she watched him walk out the door.
Dear Precious Rose,
Last week you talked about falling in love with your best friend and I really took it to heart. I finally got up the courage to ask my best guy friend out on a romantic date and he said YES! It made me so happy. We've been dating for about a week and a half now and I'm really really excited! Thank you so much for the great advice
I am so happy to hear things are working out. I hope you guys stay happy for awhile!
Dear Precious Rose,
A while back I started dating my best friend. For awhile we got along really well and things went great, but then she started acting like she didn't really want to talk to me and stuff. We ended up breaking up after a year of dating and I was really disappointed. Now, its been a few months and I barely talk to her and we used to hang out all the time. I really miss her.
Dear Come Back,
I'm really sorry that things didn't work out, but it seems like you honestly really cared about this girl, maybe you should give her a call, now that she's had sometimes to mull it over. I hope you guys can find away to AT LEAST be friends again.
This weeks topic is cheating! And I don't mean on a test, I mean on your significant other. Cheating is not cool! That is the main lesson to be learned from this, but let's define cheating. There are three possibilities when it comes to cheating, The Cheater, The Cheatee and the person being Cheated On. Not one of these is a good position to be in. So I suppose the moral is to not cheat, but if you do…HONESTY is key. If maybe you make a mistake than admit to it! Sometimes people can be understanding. If you're the one cheating, ask yourself why? Maybe the person you're really with is not for you. If this is the case then end it! If you're the one helping cheat, then think to yourself, "Am I hurting someone by doing this?" If you're the one being cheated on, firstly I'm sorry, that's really no one fun, but secondly find out why your significant other did it. Perhaps it was an honest mistake and maybe forgiveness is allowed in that sense, maybe its not a mistake and in that case let them go. But seriously if you take anything from this post… really just don't CHEAT IT'S NOT OK…besides if you do cheat, something bad might happen to you, like in the song by Carrie Underwood, Before He Cheats.
HOpe it was enjoyable! Please review and i promise to not leaving you guys hanging anymore!!!
