The bell rang, and we both stood up to throw away our garbage. We
continued to talk about the family and all that stuff. We said
goodbye and hugged. “Where you living now?” I asked.
“It’s a surprise.” He answered. “I’ll
call you tonight don’t worry.” He said with that
mysterious smile. “See you later!” I said as he started
to walk in the opposite direction. “See ya!” He
As I turned to my
left I felt a certain pull at my arm, followed by the shaking of my
shoulders. I went into my defense pose which is practically
crouching up with my hands out in the fighting position. Not my
most intimidating pose but it sure does protect me. ‘What
happened!” Demanded Sam. “Nothing. We talked and that
was it.” I said. “That was it! Yeah, okay let’s
go with that.” Marley said sarcastically. “Maybe that
is all. Or maybe it’s not.” Said Danielle with one of
her shy smiles. “You so like him! I can see it in your
eyes!” Said Marley. I suddenly blushed. Oh God, why was I
blushing? Then I remembered; oh yeah I do like him. “Okay, I
do like him. We were really close friends when we were little and
maybe now that I see how grown up he is, I don’t know
something sparked.” I finally answered. “Oh my god! I
knew it!” Said Alana. We all laughed and continued on to our
I burst through
the door. “Ma’ was there any phone calls?” I
asked. “No sweetie, why?” She questioned.
“Cause’ remember Spencer?” I asked. “Yeah,
your old friend from when you were little?” She answered.
“He’s back! He moved back home!” My mom then
showed a huge smile across her face. “That’s great! Now
go start your homework!” She said. “Ughhh, fine.”
I said reluctantly. I then walked up the stairs and opened my door
to my room, my sanctuary. Immediately I turned to my stereo and
cranked up the All Time Low as usual. I pulled out my math book and
tried to concentrate on the first example. The phone rang, I
lurched for it as quick as I didn’t even think was possible
for me. Yes! It was Spencer! “Heyyy,” I said in my
flirty voice. “Heyyyy,” he said back trying to imitate
me. “So you never answered me. Where you living now?” I
asked sweetly. “Why, don’t you look out your window and
check.” He said. I had to seriously hold my breath to keep
from fainting when I walked over to my window and I saw him
standing there. “Uhhh….hi?” I said nervously.
“Hey, you said you wanted to see where I was living now
right?” He said with a smile, looking as nervous as I did.
“Yeah, but an address would’ve been good enough. You
didn’t have to walk all the way here.” I said, trying
to look casual. “What do you mean all the way here?” He
pointed to down by where his old house to be. “That’s
where I’m living now.” I gasped in excitement.
“You got your old house back!” I said excitedly.
“You bet!” He said. At that moment I ran down the
stairs. “Mom! Spencer’s outside is it okay if I go meet
him?” I asked politely. “Sure, be safe honey. And be
sure to tell him I said hi.” She answered. “I will
ma’” I said halfway out the door.
I ran to him and I practically tackled him. “I can’t
believe it! It’ll be just like how it used to be!” I
said. “Yea… just the way it used to be,” he said
sounding nervous and almost sad. I stepped down to my feet.
“What’s bothering you?” I asked.
“Nothing,” he answered looking up at the sky.
“Tell. Me!” I said in my serious voice.
“Nothing!” He said laughing. “Now come on, I
gotta’ show you the place. And the ma’ is dying to see
you.” He said. “ Okay, and wait ma’ is my parent
label!” I said jokingly. “Yeah, okay. You got that from
me in the first place.” He said rolling his eyes.
As we entered his
house we heard a voice, “Spencer is that you?” It was
his mom. “Yeah, ma’ its me and I got a surprise for
you.” At that moment Spencer’s mom was at the top of
the stairs repeating, “Watcha get me, watcha get me.”
Then her eyes lit up. “Karol! Oh my God I can’t believe
it’s you!” She practically ran down the stairs and gave
me a big hug. “Hi Mrs. Black!” I said happily.
“Oh please Karol, call me Lori!” She said with a smile.
“Okay, come on we’ve had enough Kodak moments I
believe,” said Spencer awkwardly. “Okay, fine, I see
how it is.” Said Lori jokingly.” And I followed Spencer
up the staircase that led to Spencer’s room.
