Chapter 1: Denial
Benny- Hey wanna come over after school and play some video games?
Ethan- I don't know, Sarah's babysitting tonight…
Benny- stops walking and looks at me. Speaking of Sarah when are you going ask her out?
Ethan- What do you mean?
I say uncomfortably and look away
Benny- You like her…
he says like it's the most obvious thing in the world
Ethan- Dude, she's just my babysitter, and besides if I did like her which im not saying I do, she'd never like a geek like me.
my face falling and my held hung she was so beautiful and I was ….
Benny- Well if you did like her (which I did, I was blushing at the very thought of her) and im not saying you do, I happen to know she is very into you.
Ethan- my head snapped up and I became very hopeful. And how do you know this?
I say cool, but inside I am screaming. If he knew that Sarah had somehow had even the slightest affection for me I would be so happy! I tried to calm myself before I became too noticeable.
Benny- Well yesterday I was-
NO! I wanted to know how Benny knew Sarah liked me! I guess I would have to find out some other time. I sighed.
Benny/Ethan- Hey Rory.
Rory- Guys we've been over this … call me vampire ninja!
Benny- And why should we do that?
Rory- Because that's what the laddddies call me.
He had no ladies, but I wont either if I cant talk to Benny alone and find out what we were discussing earlier.
Erica- I don't get why you take school so seriously when you can do it over and over.
Sarah- But what If I find a cure?
I Said hopefully.
Erica- Those chances are slim…
Sarah- Look, can we just change the subject?
Sarah hoped with all her heart that her nerds would help her find a cure.
Erica- Sure? Uhh … you babysitting tonight?
Sarah- Yeah…. Why?
I said suspiciously
Erica- Well it's just you've been hanging with the nerds, becoming closer with them …
Sarah- Yeah …
I said knowing there was more.
Erica- One in particular your getting very close with ..
Sarah- WHAT? I don't like Ethan.
I said in a high pitched voice, twitching nervously.
Erica- Oh, come on! I know you like him, plus I didn't even say who I was talking about. Every time your around him all you do is giggle and stare at each other like complete idiots, it's-
Mr. Jefferson- Hello ladies, hope you read last night because we will be having a quiz on chapter one.
Sarah- Yeah, were ready Mr. Jefferson.
Sarah watched him walk away, and smiled knowing she was ready for that quiz.
I watched Rory walk away, I was so relieved when he interrupted what I was about to say, because I didn't know Sarah liked him, well I knew but I didn't have any proof. So before he could bring it back up I had to change the subject.
Benny- So, I guess I'll come to your house tonight and we can play video games.
Ethan- Sure, whatever. Now tell me how you know Sarah likes me.
Way to avoid the subject I thought to myself, what was I going to say?
Benny- Well seeing as you don't like her it really doesn't matter.
Ethan- Well I still wanna know.
Benny- Yeah, that's the problem umm I know you like her so until you tell me you like her I cant tell you.
I smirked at this knowing he wouldn't admit to liking Sarah. And at the fact that I found a reasonable amount of time to find a better excuse or some proof.
I so wasn't ready for that quiz, but whatever I would just copy off that nerd Jonathan in class. Ugh, thinking of school was making me sick so I went back to the earlier subject.
Erica- So back to the love of your life..
Erica- What? You honestly cant hurt him I happen to know he also likes you-
Sarah- You don't know that! And even if you did, I don't care.
She was going to be hard to crack but I had the perfect idea.\
Erica- Fine, you don't like him, you happy?
Sarah and Erica are walking towards Ethan and Benny's locker.
Erica only had a little time to put her little plan into action. She sent a text message to Benny she needed his help he sent ok and got ready for the plan.
Ethan/Sarah- For the last time I don't like him/her! They said this in unison and just as Benny and Erica planned they had heard each other. Erica and Benny ran away leaving them alone.
Ethan/Sarah- Who were you talking about? They both said at the same time.
Sarah- Oh, me too.
They were both sad, and knew there friends were lying.
Ethan: Benny said you liked me.
Sarah- What? Erica said you liked me.
Sarah- What does oh mean? She said mimicking his voice.
Ethan: Nothing, I'll see you tonight.
He walked away and Sarah just stared till she could no longer see him. She had to know what oh meant.
