1. Going along.

"So, what do you fancy?" Linda asked behind her menu. "Burgers? A milkshake?"

"Oh, a milkshake sounds great!" I smiled delighted.

Tap, tap.

"Uh, hey…" someone tapped my shoulder lightly.

I looked up, curious.

"Sorry. I-I don't usually do this kind of thing but… could you do me a huge favor?" The guy standing right next to me hesitated a little.

"Um, sure" I blurted out, blushing.

He was gorgeous.

"Could you walk with me for a few minutes? Ju-just a few minutes… I know this sounds crazy and all but…"

"Ok" I stood up, throwing my friend a sheepish look to her teasing smile.

I don't quite know why I agreed to his petition; it was probably the sadness hidden behind his dark lashes.

So, we walked.


My cheeks were burning hot.

Ouch! -stupid chair got in the way-.

"You ok?" he chuckled slightly.

"Yeah" I laughed at my clumsiness.

"Jacob?" A girl with long brown hair called out from a table not so far from us. Her blonde friend quickly threw us a prying look.

"Oh, hey Bella" he answered nonchalantly.

I felt him tremble.

"Hey" She stood up, hesitating on approaching or not.

"I-I called you, but all I got was your voice mail…"

"Yeah. I've been busy…" He shrugged.

"I can see that" Her chocolate brown eyes met mine. The stinging in her tone was more than obvious.

I merely smiled at her.

"We're kind of late…" he looked down at me.

"Yeah, should get going. The movie is about to start" I went along.

"Bye" He told both girls as we headed towards the exit of the small restaurant.

"Thank you" he whispered.


"What was that about?" Linda asked, handing me my shake.

She'd waited for me next to her car, instead.

"I'm not quite sure…" I answered honestly.

A smooth way to start my summer vacation.

I suddenly had a feeling that things would get a bit interesting after this.

A/N: This image has been swirling inside my head all night. I couldn't sleep, so I decided to write it down. (:
