Hey guys! Thanks randomsmileyperson for your continuous reviews. And, not trying to be a review freak or whatever like a lot of people, but I only got one review. And reviews are really amazing for me to read. They let me know people want me to keep writing. So please take a little time and review. Now, anyway, here's chapter 8.
"Oh my gosh, that was the cutest thing ever!" Harper squealed. Alex was on the phone with her.
Alex rolled her eyes, but smiled. She continued straightening her hair. "It was pretty cool." She admitted. "It was so unexpected. We just… Kissed. Oh, how I love history."
Harper laughed. "So, you guys are like, official now?"
"Yeah, I guess. It's pretty cool, it's just kind of weird."
"What do you mean?"
"Well," Alex started. She started walking toward her dresser to grab her lip gloss. "When I first talked to Justin I hated him. With a passion. But the more I started to get to know him, the more I liked him. It's just crazy. And how he's a wizard! I mean, seriously, what are the chances of that? Next thing I know, you'll tell me you're a wizard."
"Well actually," Harper grinned.
"Don't even say that Harper."
"See you later. I gotta get ready for my date with Justin." Alex said.
"Alright. I'll talk to you later."
She hung up the phone and threw it on her bed.
"Am I ready?" She said aloud. She looked herself over in the mirror. She looked pretty good. Justin had said not to get all dressed up for their date, but she couldn't help it.
She walked outside and waited at the curb. About five minutes later, Justin arrived in his car.
"Need a ride?" Justin grinned at Alex.
Alex played along. "I would love one, thank you." Once she got into the car, Justin started the car.
"So where are we going?" Alex asked him.
"You'll see once we get there." Justin said, smiling at her.
"Fine." Alex said.
10 minutes later Justin pulled into Alex's favorite Chinese restaurant.
"Oh my gosh, how did you know I love this place?" Alex asked, excited.
"Honestly, I just looked at your Facebook page." Justin said sheepishly.
Alex laughed. "Oh yeah. I forgot I put that on there."
Justin laughed along with her and then he parked. Once they were inside, they stood in the line.
"How am I supposed to tell her?" Justin said quietly, thinking Alex couldn't hear him.
"Tell me what?" Alex questioned.
"It's just," he was searching for the right words. "Can I tell you a secret?"
"Sure, I guess." Alex smiled.
"And you won't get mad?"
"I don't think so…" Alex was starting to get worried.
"Well, the truth is—"
"A table for two?" A Chinese worker asked them politely.
"Um, yeah." Justin replied. The waiter led Justin and Alex to their table.
"Can I get you anything to drink?" The waiter questioned.
"Yeah, I'll have water; what about you Justin?" Alex said quickly. She really wanted to hear this secret Justin was talking about.
"A root beer please." Justin said.
"Alright, I'll be back in a few minutes to take your orders." The waiter left.
"So?" Alex peered at Justin.
"What?" Justin asked, genuinely confused.
"What's the secret?" Alex replied rather loudly.
"Oh, right." Justin stuttered. "Well, the truth is that me and you probably weren't going to be partners for the project."
Alex was confused. "What do you mean? Mr. Johnson picked me and you to be partn—"
"No, that's the point." Justin paused. "This is hard to say."
Alex crossed her arms. "Tell me Justin."
"I used magic to get us to be partners." Justin said, dreading seeing her reaction.
"You what!" Alex yelled. A few of the tables near them turned and looked at them.
"Um, what do you two want to eat?" The waiter said awkwardly.
Alex groaned. He showed up at the worst moments. "I'll have the orange chicken combo with rice instead of noodles." She ordered quickly.
Justin sighed. He had been dreading having to tell Alex this. "Um, I'll have the same thing."
The waiter left without saying anything. When he was gone, Alex continued.
"You what!" Alex repeated.
"Look, I know it sounds bad. But I—" Justin started.
"Yes, it sounds bad! Are you freaking kidding me?"
"Alex!" Justin said. "Let me finish talking before you yell at me. Please."
"Fine," Alex replied. "Why did you do it?"
"Okay, when I first saw you, I thought you were…" Justin thought for a moment. "Pretty. And I wanted to make a move on you. But I didn't think you'd ever talk to me unless you were forced to. So, I used magic to get Mr. Johnson to put us together."
"You put us together because you thought I was hot, and you just wanted to sleep with me?" Alex was getting really mad.
"Look, I'm sorry. Maybe I shouldn't have done that, but look where we are now. At first it was just about that, but that night with the carpet, was… Incredible. That's when I really started to fall for you. You just seemed like such an amazing girl. From that moment on, I knew that I wanted to be with you."
Alex couldn't help but smile a little bit.
"You've liked me since that night?" Alex said.
Justin nodded. "There was just something magical about you. And I'm not talking about you being a—"
"Yeah, I know." Alex grinned.
"So you're not mad?" Justin asked eagerly.
Alex rolled her eyes. "I can't stay mad at you. And that's probably not a good thing."
"You know you love me." Justin laughed.
Alex nodded. "I can't help it."
The waiter brought them their food, and for the rest of the date they talked about all of their magical adventures.
"And then I had to save the world yet again from the Angels of Darkness." Alex concluded.
"Wow," Justin said. "You saved the world a lot. Looks like I owe you something."
"What do you have in mind?" Alex asked.
"This." Justin stood up from his side of the table and walked up to Alex. He put his lips onto hers. They continued kissing until—
"Ahem." The waiter said. Alex and Justin pulled apart and looked at the waiter.
"Um, here's your bill." He said awkwardly, putting the bill on the table.
"Teenage relationships." The waiter muttered as he walked away.
"Why does someone always interrupt us while we're kissing?" Justin asked Alex.
"I don't know." Alex laughed. Justin paid the bill.
"That was a great first date." Alex smiled at Justin.
"Yeah, it was." Justin said.
Justin put his arm around Alex as they walked back to his car.
Aw, their first date. Anyway, that surprised you didn't it? About Justin using magic to get Alex? Well, I'm excited for you to find out what happens next. Anyways, again, please review. They're GREATLY appreciated.
