The characters are all 16 btw...And lets all pretend that they all live in the same town ok? Lol
That One Special Night...
Chapter 1. If only she knew...
Snow was falling gently and swiftly down towards the small town, each snowflake landing in it's own special and unique way. People scurried up and down the paths and roads, eager to get to their warm toasty houses as the icy wind prickled against their cold rosy faces. Christmas lights hung from shop windows and a massive Christmas tree was perched in the middle of the town circle, decorated in bright gold and red bobbles and tinsel. Footprints were scattered everywhere as the late night shoppers continued to track down the gift they were so desperate to find for their loved ones. Everyone, who had at least two full bags in their hands, didn't take the time to stop and chat to the people they knew, but just stifled a greeting as they hurried past.
One boy stood alone, facing a tidy house. His messy raven hair blew with the wind as snowflakes landed softly on his head. The house was very neat, the light on in the bedroom and in the living room shone and surfed it's way into the darkness. He sighed and dug his hands in his pockets and stiffly started walking away from the house he was so fascinated by.
'If only she knew'...He thought and rounded the corner.
In the same house, in the bedroom which was lit, a young girl was writing in her sapphire blue diary. The sixteen year old, Dawn Berlitz, paused for a moment then continued to scratch in her notebook as if she was writing an essay. Her Blue hair, which reached just past her shoulders, and her eyes where just about the same colour.
She sighed as she finished the last four words and closed her notebook. Even though it was half past eleven, she didn't feel at all tired. But she knew she had to get up early in the morning to give everyone their presents. She snuggled down in her bed and switched off the bed side table light. Just waiting for tomorrow to come...
"Pip-lup, pip-LUP!, PIP-LUP!" The blue penguin like pokemon screeched, jumping on it's coordinator's bed. Dawn never moved, still sound asleep. "PIP PIP!" Piplup had quite enough, it puffed out it's chest and sprayed a huge mass of water. The sleepy girl woke with a start.
"AHHH!" She screamed.
"Come on Dawn, get up. It's Christmas Day!" Her mother said happily, entering her room.
"Yes, I'm coming," Dawn replied, as she slid off her bed and made her way into the bathroom to get showered. She didn't know why she wasn't cheerful on Christmas like everybody else.
'It's probably because Christmas is for family time, but I don't have a dad.' She thought as she entered the bathroom.
20 minutes later.
"WOW! Thanks mum!" The blue haired girl screamed in delight. "It's just what I wanted!" In her hand sat a gold charm bracelet with one charm, a star, on it. Her mum smiled at her. "And here's your present!" Dawn continued as she walked over to the Christmas tree in the corner, and rummaged through the small pile of presents until she found a light pink box and handed it to her mother.
"I wasn't expecting anything," She chuckled. She untied the pink bow and pealed the pink wrapping paper, and opened the box. Inside there was a cream jewellery box. "Dawn, It's wonderful!" She cried as Dawn smiled.
The door bell rang...
"I'll get it," Dawn said and walked to the door and opened it, Snowflakes rushed past her....But there was no one there. "That's funny," She mumbled and looked around. Everything was quiet with the snow still falling. There were footprints on the garden and leading back into town. She looked down and, on the step, there was a single red rose with a gold card tied to the stem. She picked it up and read the neat and tidy writing.
All the love that history knows,
is said to be in every rose.
Yet all that could be found in two,
is less than what I feel for you..
Of all the girls I've ever met,
You're the one I can't forget.
I read the words over and over again. Just reading it made my lips go in a perfect smile. I looked at the red rose, it was so beautiful, so sweet...But who sent it? There wasn't a name. Hmmm...I really wanted to know who it was...Paul? No, he's such a jerk and would never write something that's so sweet as this...Gary? No, We're just friends, he doesn't like me in that way...Drew? It can't be, he obviously fancies May...Ash? I wish it was, but it probably isn't.
But who can it be?
I stood there, still looking at the gift, I really want to know, maybe he will say at school? If he even goes to my school that is...I studied the handwriting, I've seen it before...But...I couldn't remember who's it was...Argh this is so annoying!
I watched her from round the corner. She was just looking at the card. Did she guess it was me? Or maybe she thought it was someone else...I wish I put my name on it now! I'm so STUPID! WHY THE HELL DO I HAVE TO BE SO THICK?! She would never love someone so dumb and me. She probably loves Gary or Paul. I wonder if she even remembers my name.
I glanced at her again, she had a smile on her face as she walked back inside. Had she guessed?
I sighed, maybe she recognised the handwriting? Well she did tutor me a few weeks ago...Damn, what am I going to do now?
I pulled up my collar and trudged through the deep white snow towards town, still thinking. Why did I give her a rose on Christmas? I should have waited till valentines day...It seems so stupid now. Suddenly my phone started to ring in my pocket...
Every minutes like an hour,
Every hours like a day,
Every day lasts forever,
But what else am I gonna do,
I'd wait forever and a day for you,
I looked at the caller ID; Gary. I picked it up.
"Hey Gary," I said.
"Hey Ash, Guess what?!" Came Gary's voice
"What?" I asked.
"There's gonna be a New Years Eve party soon!" He shouted excitedly.
"Cool," I replied.
"Who you gonna bring?" He said. What? Who am I going to bring? What the hell is this boy talking about? Do I have to bring someone?
"What do you mean?" I asked nervously.
"I mean, who are you going to bring?" He repeated slowly, "Aren't you going to bring someone?"
"How about Dawn?" He asked mischievously. I bashed into a lamppost. "Hello?" He said.
"I...Er...Well, I dunno how to ask her," I stuttered, acting like I never bashed into anything. This is so embarrassing! I'm actually admitting this to Gary of all people!
He laughed, "Aww poor Ashy Boy,"
"Well you obviously want to bring her," Gary said, I blushed.
"What makes you say that?" I asked.
"You've just been to her house." I stopped,
"I...Wait, How do you know that?" How could Gary know that? I never told anyone that I was going to give her a rose anonymously and stand looking at her house. I sound like a stalker now.
"I'm looking out my window," I looked around, damn, I was near his house, and Gary was indeed looking out his window smiling at me. "And I can tell you've been to her house for two reasons, 1. Your blushing, and 2. You always come back this way when you've visited her house." Gary explained. Wow he knows me to well. I started walking again.
"Hey! I'm blushing because it's cold out here! And I don't always come back this way!"
"HA! Yeah right..." He laughed again.
"I'm not going to argue with you Gary," I warned him with a chuckle.
"Yeah that's because you have no come back," He laughed again, Damn he just owned me. "Bye," He finished and hung up. I put my phone back in my pocket and continued to walk back to my house. I started thinking again. How am I going to ask Dawn? What will I say? Should I ask Brock, and see if he's going? He'll probably think it's funny.
2 Hours Later: Dawn's Pov.
"Come on! Let's go sledging! " May screamed in excitement as she ran with her pink sledge swinging behind her.
"Hold up May!" I shouted, pulling my blue one. We reached the massive hill after about five minutes of running. "Why are you so excited? It's only sledging," I laughed.
"Well I heard Drew's going to be here," She answered happily.
"If Drew is going to be here," I muttered, "...That means..."
"Hey May, Hey Dawn," We heard a voice call and turned round and saw Drew and Ash with they're sledges.
"Hey Drew!" She ran over to him, "Did you hear that there's going to be a New Years Party?"
"Hells Yeah! Do you want to go with me?" He asked, May's face beamed.
"YES YES YES YES YES!" She shouted with delight, Drew smiled. Ash's eyes met mine.
"Hey Ash," I said shyly.
"Hey," He smiled. My heart jumped, I love when he smiles at me. We continued to stair at each other. I was lost in his dark brown eyes.
"Me and Drew are going along to the big hills," Said May interrupting the daze I was in.
"OK," I replied, Drew was whispering in May's ear as she giggled and then said, "You two can stay here if ya want." I looked at her as she skipped away with Drew, I knew what she was up to. I took a glance at Ash who was also watching them. Was he blushing? Or was it just the cold?
"Sooo..." I said, trying to make a conversation.
"Sooo..." He replied.
"Who you taking to the dance?" I asked.
"Dunno, what about you?"
"Dunno," I replied. 'What a way to start a conversation Dawn,' I cursed in my head. We walked to the edge of the hill.
"Do you want to go down first?" I asked him. He shook his head.
"I actually didn't want to come, but Drew dragged me," He said with a chuckle, I laughed.
"Yeah, May had to persuade me for ages," We started to laugh as we sat down on the cold snow.
"Do you have anyone in mind who you want to go to the dance with?" I asked her.
"Well...Yeah I do," She said while smiling at me, "I just really want him to ask me, I got a rose and a card on my door step this morning." I looked up.
"Really? Hmm...I wonder who that could be from..." I said trying not to show that it was from me.
"Yeah...I really want to know who it was from..." Should I tell her or not? Damn what will I do?!
"Hmm..." Was all I could manage as she continued to look at me. I looked at the snow covered ground,"D-Do you...Er...Well...Want to go...T-To the dance...With me?..." I stuttered.
"Yeah! That would be awesome!" She squealed. I smiled. Finally I said it!...But I act like a fool in front of her...
Right...I need some help...
