Give Her A Second Chance? Chapter 1 "Ramones Shirt Girl"
It was July 19th the sun was shining bright while the gang sat at The Lemon. Caitlin was squeezing lemons "what's everyone's plan for the day?"
Jen was the first to speak up "I have to work from 11 to 5."
"Band practice" Wyatt put his guitar case on his shoulders and left.
"Maybe I'll do some skating." Jude leaned back in his chair.
"Sadly" Jonesy paused "nothing."
"Sucks for you" Nikki chuckled.
"Will you go do something with me Nikki?" Jonesy pleaded.
"Let's see, how do I put this nicely?" She paused "No."
"I've got plans, sorry." Nikki just smiled.
"What are you doing?"
"It's my friend's birthday today, we're hanging out." Nikki's phone vibrated "She's actually on her way over now."
"Why have we not met this 'friend'" he used air quotes on 'friend'.
"Yeah, why haven't we?" Jen budded in.
"Probably because she's new, we have Remer together. She's actually pretty cool." Nikki paused "If you want we'll swing by here later and we can all hang out. Or you guys could come over to my house with her."
"I'm down for going to your place" Jonesy seductively growled.
"Save it, Casanova." Nikki shoved his face away from her.
"Eek" Caitlin squealed "Would we spend the night?"
"Sure, if you want too."
"That would be so fun! Let me call my parents" Caitlin whipped out her phone and called them.
"Can we?" Jen asked
"It's whatever you guys want to do. My parents wouldn't care if more people came over." Nikki text her parents just in case they would say no.
"Dudette that would be sweet!" Jude grabbed his phone and started to text his parents.
"I'll go call our folks Jen" Jonesy got up and started to walk away from the table, he had gotten pretty far so he took his phone out, he was dialing his Dad's number when he ran into someone "Oh my God I'm so sorry are you okay?" He looked up to see a gorgeous girl with long curly dark brown hair, and beautiful baby blue eyes.
"Yeah, yeah I'm fine. Just watch where you're going next time okay?" The girl said while she turned to walk away. She looked like she was in a hurry but he couldn't help but grab her shoulder.
"Wait, would you just look at me real quick?" Jonesy smiled
"It's one thing to run into someone it's another to force them to talk to you. What do you want?"
"Just look at me real quick" he looked at her and looked confused.
"Is there a problem?"
"No not at all, you just have really beautiful eyes."
She blushed and smiled "thanks, be careful okay? See you around." Her voice was not high, but wasn't low. It was perfect her voice was in his head. He couldn't shake it. She turned around and left. 'Shit, I didn't get her name! Oh well I've got to call Dad.' He thought. The phone rang a few times then heard a "hello?" come from the other line.
"Hey Dad, it's Nikki's friends birthday today, she's new here and needs to meet people. Nikki wants me and Jen to come spend the night with them."
"Who's going to be there?"
"Nikki's parents, Nikki, her friend, Jen, me, Caitlin, Wyatt, and Jude."
"Okay you guys can spend the night. No funny business okay?"
"Okay Dad, I promise love you."
"Love you too son."
Jonesy hung up the phone and ran back to the lemon to find Nikki not there. "Where's Nikki?"
"Her friend came and got her. They said they'll meet us at Nikki's at 6 pm." Jen smiled.
"Dude, her friend is smoking hot" Jude got out of his chair "My folks said I could spend the night at Nikki's. I'm going to go skateboard, but I'll see Wyatt soon. I'll tell him about Nikki's."
"Great, see you later Jude!" Jen smiled
"We can go to Nikki's, just no funny business." Jonesy mimicked his Dad.
"Okay awesome, I've got to get to the penalty box before Coach kills me. See you guys at Nikki's."
Caitlin sighed "I've got to make stupid lemonade."
Jonesy laughed "I'm going to go get some grub."
"Alright, see you at Nikki's?"
"You know it!" Jonesy waved goodbye and left to wonder taco.
Nikki was sitting with her friend at super terrific happy sushi "Happy Birthday!" Nikki screamed hoping one of the staff members would hear her and come sing happy birthday.
"Nikki be quite" her friend couldn't stop laughing.
"They should come sing to you maybe you'll get a free little something." She snorted
"You're killing me!"
"Okay let's go." Nikki stood up.
"Good idea" her friend got up, she put on her black leather jacket over her maroon and white Ramones shirt. She was walking towards the counter when she slipped. She burst into more laughter "God damn stupid feet."
Nikki walked up behind her laughing "yeah you stupid feet."
"Okay, we need to leave before we get kicked out." Her friend got on her feet and turned to walk out the door.
"Agreed" They walked out of the restaurant and towards the fountain.
Nikki and her friend were sitting on a bench by the fountain when Nikki noticed a red mark on her friend's forehead. "Hey Aria, what's that on your forehead?"
"What do you mean?" Aria looked concerned.
"You've got a red mark on your forehead. I didn't notice it till now."
"Oh God, let me go look." Aria got up and ran for the bathroom the closest bathroom was by Wonder Taco.
Jonesy was sitting at a table at Wonder Taco he had finished eating but didn't know what he wanted to do. He was checking his phone when he looked up to see the girl he ran into. Right then and there he got up "hey" he confidently walked up to her.
"Hi" she said while still looking down. She looked up to see the cute guy she ran into. "Oh it's you"
"Is that a bad thing?"
"No, no" she paused "I'm just surprised that's all."
"Oh, well I forgot to ask you something when I rudely bumped into you today."
"Yeah what's that?" She asked
"I wanted to know" he paused "What's your name?"
She smiled "you really want to know?"
"Uh yeah" he laughed "Or I'll just have to call you Ramones shirt girl. I like your shirt by the way."
"Thanks" she chuckled "I stole it from a guy at an airport. First things first, what's your name?"
"I see how this works, okay my names Jonesy."
"Jonesy huh?" she smiled "I like that name."
