Ally and I decided to have the Sonic Boom fund raiser on Sunday, which was 3 days from now. I had to learn my new song as well as some sweet dance moves. I met up with Dez at the mall to have a mini meeting.
"Ok Dez, so what have you got going for the new video?" I asked, sitting down at the food courts with some fries. Dez had his gingerbread house with him.
"Well, I was thinking of a big light show and…" But Dez drifted off as he looked to his right. I looked over to find a blonde girl eating ice cream with a friend. When she saw Dez she smiled and walked over to him.
"Hey Dezzie! What's my little cousin doing at the mall?" She asked pinching Dez's cheeks. That's when she saw me and stopped.
"Well, who's this handsome devil? Dez, why don't you introduce me to him?" Dez looked upset but said, "Jessica, this is my friend Austin. Austin, this is Jessica. My distant cousin who's visiting for a couple of weeks," He said gloomily. I smiled and nodded towards Jessica. "Nice to meet you Jessica."
"Ooh aren't you the cutie?" She said smiling. She leaned in and whispered, "We should hook up sometime" and walked away. I sat there confused.
"That's your cousin?" I asked in disbelief.
He groaned, "Sadly yes. She's been bothering me for the last week."
That explained why he was so down.
There was silence for a moment.
"Where's she from?"
"Tennessee," Dez said, poking his gingerbread house.
"She seems…nice," I said, trying hard not to laugh. That's when Ally came in.
"Hey you guys! What are you doing here? Oh, by the way, did you guys know that you are both," She checked her watch, "2 hours late for the team Austin meeting?" We both sat silently, remembering that today was the meeting.
"Oh right. Sorry Ally. We just had some…business," I said eyeing Dez. He looked away.
"Well you both better get your butts to the Sonic Boom. NOW!"
She was angry. I could tell by the little glow in her eye. I quickly stood up and pulled Dez with me back to the store.
After the meeting, we all decided to hang out in Ally's room at the Sonic Boom. Trish suggested a movie, and Dez quickly took out 4 bags of popcorn from his backpack. He seems to have everything in that bag. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a plasma T.V. in there too. Everyone sat down to watch "One Missed Call". Ally didn't like the idea of watching a horror movie. But I assured her it wasn't scary and said I would sit next to her. Of course through out the entire movie her head was buried in my sleeve. Every time she peaked, she would just shudder and go back to her original position. I thought it was hilarious.
I decided to take a walk around Miami and practice Ally's song in my head. Suddenly someone tapped me on my shoulder.
"Hey hot shot! Austin was it?" Jessica said, coming in front of me. She was dressed in tight clothes. A t-shirt that showed her stomach and a short skirt. She was chewing gun loudly and smiling.
"Uh, yeah Austin," I said. She laughed and hooked her arm with mine.
"Hey, let's go for a walk together," She said shifting her hair. She pulled me along with her. After a couple minutes of silence I finally decided to speak.
"So, you're Dez's cousin."
She smiled, "Ya sweetie. But we're completely opposites as you can see. He makes gingerbread houses for a hobby, and I have manicures."
She didn't seem bad; she was just a little…
We hung out a little more, before she got a text message.
"Oh damn it. My mom wants me home. I'm sorry," She said, looking at me sincerely.
I smiled, "its fine. Don't worry about it."
She smiled and kissed me on my cheek, "Bye cutie!"
