Chapter 15: Rachel Meets Kylie
I felt like a jerk. I completely turned down Kylie just now and for what I know, she seems like a really nice girl. So I decided to take a chance on her. Starting with a phone call. I quickly dialed Kylie's number and I unconsciously smiled when she picked up before the second ring could go off.
"Finn?" she asked, weakly.
I knew something was wrong. Her voice sounded like she's been...crying?
"Hey," I greeted as calmly as possible.
"Um...is there a certain reason you called?" Kylie questioned.
"Actually there is," I replied.
C'mon Finn. Just tell her. The sooner the better.
"So," she said, breaking the silence,"What is it?"
"Well...about yesterday," I said, "I just wanted to tell you that I'm sorry for turning you down like that. I was having a pretty rough day at school with Rachel and everything and I just-"
Kylie immediately cut me off.
"I get it Finn," she interrupted, "But you don't need to apologize for that. It was kind of my fault. I shouldn't have asked you so abruptly."
Her fault? No it wasn't.
"It wasn't your fault Kylie," I snapped back.
"What? Why?" she asked.
You can do it, Finn.
"Because I really do want to go on a date with you," I said.
I was so happy when Finn told me that. Shocked, but happy. The Finn Hudson wants to go on a date with me? My life feels so unrealistic now.
"Really?" I asked.
"Yeah," he said, with his deep masculine voice.
Then a thought occurred to me. Isn't Jason's birthday coming up? He invited me to dinner with him and his girlfriend. I can't turn him down now!
"Oh wait, I can't that day," I explained, "One of my friends' birthday is coming up and I promised I would go to dinner with him and his girlfriend."
"Well then we can just double date," he replied, "Uh...I mean if that's okay with him."
"Um...okay," I tried to convince myself, "Why not? I'll ask him right now."
"Bye then," Finn answered before the call ended.
I sure hope this works.
I quickly texted Jason about the whole double-dating thing and he seemed okay with it. I was so glad. I really wanted this relationship to go well with Finn.
The next day, I felt complete. Somewhere deep down inside of me, I knew that this day was going to be perfect. But boy was I wrong.
As I was walking down the halls at school, I accidentally bumped into someone. Then I realized this 'someone' was Santana Lopez, the school's meanest bitch.
"Watch where you're going, whore," she said angrily, "You should try not to gain too many pounds if you want to try out for cheerleading."
My face fell. She smirked, as if happy with herself that her last comment got to me. I also noticed that there was a blonde cheerleader standing right beside her, laughing at me.
"Yeah, well you shouldn't have gotten plastic surgery for those big boobs of yours," I shot back, "It'll be hard for you when you're at the bottom of the pyramid. Those little girls could bounce right off."
Right at that moment, my cheek burned really badly. Santana's hand was up in the air. She had just slapped me.
"You better watch what you say, dwarf," she threatened, "You're not even close to being popular. With a click of my hand, you could be known as the school's biggest freak."
Excuse me? I'm the freak?
"You know what?" I argued, "I don't really give a shit. At least I'm not known as the school's lesbo."
Then, Santana grabbed my shirt and ripped it off. My top was bare. I felt everyone's gaze on me. I was exposed. Tears were streaming down my face. I ran into the bathroom, ignoring all of the whistles and the laughter. I have never felt so embarrassed before. I knew I shouldn't have confronted Santana.
Tonight was the big day that I finally got to go on a date with Kylie. Well, make that a double-date. After the whole incident with her and Santana, everyone now thinks that she's a total freak. Which means that after today, I can't be with her anymore.
I picked her up at around six, and from there, we drove to Breadstix in silence. I'll admit, it was a bit awkward, but I was glad that we arrived really fast. Me, being the gentleman as I am, opened the car door for her to get out. Kylie happily smiled, took my hand, and we both walked into the restaurant.
As I walked in, I noticed two familiar faces: Jason and Rachel. They were talking and laughing and I never felt so disgusted before in my life.
"Jason!" Kylie yelled and ran over to hug him.
What? He can't possibly be Kylie's friend who was celebrating his birthday today. Right?
"Finn?" I heard a voice ask, "What are you doing here?"
I turned around and saw Rachel. I have to say she never looked more beautiful. She wore a short, strapless dress with sparkly black high heels. Her hair flowed swiftly on both sides and her eyes twinkled with excitement.
"I...I have a double date tonight with Kylie," I said, "And you're here because...?"
"Well, it's my boyfriend's birthday today," she replied, not meeting my eyes, "And we're celebrating it with a friend of his. Are you the...?"
I nodded my head quickly. So I was right. They were the couple we were going on a double date with.
We stood there awkwardly in silence for a few minutes.
"Hey guys," Kylie said, walking towards us cheerfully, "I see you two have met."
We both nodded.
"So anyway," she continued, eyeing Rachel a bit too particularly, "Finn, this is my best friend Jason. Jason this is Finn."
He held out his hand and I willingly shook it. That was when I finally realized who he was. Jason was the guy who confronted me when I started calling Santana a bitch. Man this is going to be a long night.
Sorry about the cliffhanger. I couldn't think of anything else to write so I stopped here. End of Chapter 15. More chapters to come.
