Chapter 6

A few weeks passed, and they were amazingly fun. The four of us hung out almost every day. We went sightseeing, and shopping (the boys carried all of our bags for us! How nice!), we even went to a carnival that happened to be in town. By the end of all that, I felt like we had all been friend our whole lives. Also, almost every time there was a chance, Noelle would leave me alone, with Jacob, sometimes it even got kind of awkward. It was lovely.

It was our fourth week in London, and we were all out shopping, again, and as usual, Todd and Noelle were walking ahead. It was kind of weird because neither I nor Jacob were talking. So I decided to start a conversation.

"So do you think they are goin' out?" it was the first thing I could think of to talk about.

"Definitely. There is no possible way they aren't," he replied. Well that was a quick way to end that.

After a few more minutes of walking in silence, Jacob asked me something, "So there is an end of summer dance we have every year at our school. It's in a couple of days, and I was wondering if you would go with me." I must have made some sort of face (I was surprised, what can I say?),because then he said, "of course we will be going as friends, if that's ok with you."

I was a little disappointed, but oh well. "Sure I'd love that. But the thing is I don't have a good dress for that sort of thing," I just thought it was a good way to get the boys in a dress store.

"Ok, well I know just where to go," Jacob said. Then he ran up to Todd and told him about what just happened. The next thing I knew we were all at a dress store looking at a whole lot of gorgeous dresses. Noelle and I would put on a dress and then go show the boys to see what their reaction was. Sometime it was really funny, but you know once their jaw drops, that that is the dress.

A few days later, it was the day of the dance. Todd went over to Jacob's house and Noelle came over to mine (technically Todd's but whatever). Todd's mom helped us get ready, and we had a blast. At about nine o'clock, the boys came knocking at the door. Noelle and I opened the door and walked outside to meet them at the end of the path.

"Whoa," breathed Todd.

"You can say that again," Jacob said back to Todd. They were both staring at us with astonished faces on.

I was wearing an aqua blue halter-top dress that was tight on the chest with a diamond broach in the middle. It was very flow-y for the rest of the dress, and it went about down to my knees. Noelle was wearing a strapless red dress that went about to mid thigh and had "ruffles" all the way down it. We were "gorgeous"!

We walked to the school, and about half way there Noelle and I took off out heels and then put them back on once we got there. Once we were inside, Todd and Noelle were immediately on the dance floor. Jacob and I followed , but a little bit slower.

The first song was a fast one, but then came the second song. It was a slow song. I guess this was a chance to talk right? I mean, it's not like there is anything else to do during a slow dance. So that's what Jacob and I did, we talked.

"So…" Hey, a girl can only try to start a conversation!

"So… I never got to tell you earlier…," Jacob started.

"Tell me what?"

"If you would let me finish I would tell you what I was going to tell you," oops. It's not like I do that intentionally. I just didn't think before I speak, so I interrupt Jacob in the process.

"Sorry, go on."

"I was going to say that I never got to tell you how beautiful you look tonight," he said. I think he even blushed a little. Do guys blush?

"Really?" I needed to keep this up. It could get good.

"Well, ya. I mean you know," still blushing. This was funny. "I have just never seen you like this so…"

Ya right! He is such a liar! So I decided to mess with him. "You think I'm gorgeous, you want to kiss me, you want to hug me, you want to love me, you want to hug me, you want to smooch me, you want to..." and then he kissed me.

Right in the middle of the dance floor! He kissed me! Jacob Allen Elling, the hottest guy in London, kissed me! I was stunned.

That was the highlight of the night. Just one kiss could take me a lot of places. I swear I couldn't stop smiling. My cheeks hurt way to bad. Oh well, I couldn't wait to see what Jacobs excuse was tomorrow for this.
