A/N: OMG! I updated! Sorry for not updating for so long. Freshman year is really crazy for me. Forgive me? Anyways, here is Ch. 8! Please R&R!
!~From Rich Girl To Farmer~!
!~Chapter 8: Dinner And Selena?~!
After I put Annabelle Elizabeth to sleep, I threw myself on the bed. The past few days have been crazy, so I decided to take a quick nap. As my eyes slowly closed, I fell into deep slumber.
Fifteen minutes later, I was awakened by a knock at my door. Annabelle started to cry, so I had no choice but to answer. I groggily got off my bed and walked up to the door. The person continued to knock, until I shouted, "I'm coming already!" Opening the door, I saw Chase leaning against my door frame.
"Out of all people..." I shook my head. "What is it, Chase?"
He grinned. "I wanted to know if you'd like to come over for dinner? The baby can come, too."
I almost choked on air. Chase was inviting me to dinner? There has to be a catch. "So, what's the catch?"
Chase seemed a little taken aback, but kept his cool. "There is none, just wanted to help you out. You know, as friends."
"Uh, ok. I mean, it is free food and you do know how to cook," I smiled. Chase has been acting quite nice to me lately. "What time?"
"In two hours. Oh, and dress nice," he winked. "I'll see you there."
I waved goodbye to Chase, and when I closed the door, I slid down to the floor. H-he...winked a me? This is so not like the old Chase, and he suddenly wants to help? I need to find out what's up with him and fast! And I know just the person, too. I picked up Annabelle from the crib and put her in a baby carriage. Kathy is the only one that can help me right now.
I speed walked all the way to the Sundae Inn, and went straight to Kathy, who was polishing cups. She noticed me breathing hard, and smiled. Evil, that's what she is, but as my friend I need her help. I held onto a chair near the bar, and sighed.
"Kathy," I breathed out, "I...need your...help."
She raised an eyebrow, grinning as she put one hand on her hip. "Haha, ok. So what does Angela need help with."
"C-Chase...asked me to have dinner with him. Is...he ok?" I started to breath normally.
Kathy smiled "He was fine when he was working. Maybe he has a crush on you," she teased.
I rolled my eyes. Typical Kathy. "No he's not! A tleast he better not be..he's probably just being a good friend. Anyways, thanks Kathy."
Taking Annabelle, I walked out of the Sundae Inn. Suddenly I remembered Chase's words:
"In two hours. Oh, and dress nice," he winked. "I'll see you there."
Dress nice? What does he think this is,some kind of date? It just hit me, this is a date? Oh, he is so clever, but not clever enough. Walking faster, I bumped into something hard. I looked up, and saw Luke, who cocked one eyebrow.
"Where's the fire?" He asked.
I shrugged. "Just taking a jog. You?"
He also shrugged. "Eh, same here," Luke picked up Annabelle and spun her around. "Where are you heading?"
"Home, I want to relax for awhile," I half lied.
Luke smiled. "Cool, Selena's coming over today. She said she had something to tell me."
My smile turned upside down as soon as I heard that name. That...that...slut! Gosh, I really hate her. Luke noticed my face and frowned, putting Annabelle Elizabeth back down.
"She's not that bad," Luke tried to reason with me.
I rolled my eyes. "Of course she's not that bad, she's worse! She hated me since day one!"
"Well, you did call her ugly. A lot of peole don't like to be called that," he defended her. I couldn't believe he was taking her side!
"Are you defending her? Wow Luke...I'm leaving, bye," I spun my heels to the opposite direction and walked towards my house. Stupid Luke, he can take Selena's side all he wants. She's nothing special.
At my house, I changed into a lime green sundress, with daisies covering it. I mean, it's Chase. I don't need to look all fancy for him. Before I left, I got a phone call from my dad. Picking it up, I sat down on my bed.
"Hello father," I greeted.
"It's nice to hear your voice, Angela," he coughed. "I actually have something very important to tell you."
I hesitated to answer, it was always bad news. "W-what is it, father?"
"You have a marriage interview tomorrow, aren't you excited?"
No, I wasn't excited. I was frozen in my spot, I have a marriage interview? I knew it was going to happen, but why now? I have Annabelle to look after, and my dad doesn't know anything about her.
My hands shook. "A marriage interview? Father, I should be allowed to marry whoever I want!
"No, no dear. That's just how it goes, life isn't fair," he tried to reason.
I was getting angrier by the second. "No father, you aren't fair!" I hung up my phone and leaned against the walls. Being rich isn't always a good thing. When you want something your way, it goes the other.
The first thing that entered my mind was, 'I have to tell Luke.' We both have to take care of Annabelle, so if I just leave unexpected, then so will Annabelle. I put on my white, cotton sweater and headed towards Luke's house. Maybe if I tell him now, everything will be better. I kept on walking, thinking about my marriage interview. I hope he decides to cancel.
I walked up the front steps of the Carpenter's Shop. Taking a deep breath, I entered the shop. Dale was inside, calculating recipts from his costumers. When I got closer to him, he looked up at me.
"Oh, hey Angela. How may I help you?" he asked, his voice the sound of thunder.
I waved hello. "I'm looking for Luke. Is he upstairs?" Dale put on a worried face. "What?"
"I'm afraid he's upstairs with Selena. I know how you don't like her and all."
I shrugged. "It's ok, it'll only be a minute."
Carrying the baby in my arms, I went up to Luke's room and heard silence. Thinking Luke was sleeping, I opened the door and saw the most digusting thing in the world. Luke and Selena were on the bed, sucking face. I felt like vomiting at that instant. But instead of throwing up mentally, I screamed so loud, Selena and Luke looked up at me. I ran outside, not wanting to be disgusted any longer.
Breath after breath, I tried to find someplace I could go. I couldn't believe the poor baby had to see something so horrifying. SELENA. Oh Goddess she should just throw herself in the ocean. I ran all the way to my house, accidently slamming the door. The smell of spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, and lasagna filled my nose. I headed to the kitchen, and saw Chase stirring something in a pot. Princess came in and sat down next to him.
He looked at me and smiled. "You're here early. I thought you wouldn't be back for another hour."
My eyes widened. "What are you doing here?"
"I invited you to dinner, right? I didn't tell you where though," he put on his usual annoying smirk. "I thought you'd be tired. So I cooked here."
If it wasn't for my stomach hurting because of earlier, I would've screamed in joy. Nobody has ever done that for me before, only my maids but they were paid to do it. Wait...
"Were you paid to do this?" I asked. Chase would be the kind of person to do that.
He shook his head. "No, it was out of friendship. Our friendship."
I walked up to Chase and gave him a hug. "This, is the nicest thing anyone has done for me," I let go and smiled. "Thank you, Chase."
A few minutes later, Chase served the both of us some food. Annabelle was sound asleep, and Princess was eating her dog food. I was really enjoying the meal, but the whole marriage thing is really making me nervous. What if the guy is some type of pedophile? Or is really old? As long as the person is rich, my father doesn't care. But I do, because I want to be with someone who I like. Plus, I'm not ready for marriage. I'm 19 for Goddess sake! Chase noticed how nervous I looked.
"Are you ok, Angela?" he asked.
I nodded my head. "Yeah, don't worry. It's nothing important."
Once we finished our dinner, Chase insisted on watching a movie with me. I agreed to it, because I wanted to keep my mind off of things. Yet, during the movie, I fell asleep on Chase's shoulder. I was too tired to get up, and I knew he fell asleep too when he started breathing softly.
(3rd Person POV)
While Angela and Chase were sleeping on her couch, Selena looked through her window. This was the perfect opportunity for her to get revenge on Angela. She will never get between Luke and Selena again. Selena took out a camera she got from Castanet. With a few flashes with the camera, Selena can destroy Angela...
...Or can she?
