Welcome to the Jungle
i walked into lunch with Candice and we walked to our usual table
where Susie and Carly were waiting for us. i just had a water
with Ice-Tea crystal light in it.
"aren't you hungry? here.. have part of my bagel..
please.." Candice said. i looked at it.. oh my god. i love
"um.. no.. im good.. thanks.." i said she just nodded
with a worried look.
"i... think i have a crush on Castro.." Candice said
quietly. and her eyes were right on him as he and his group
walked into the cafe with there food.
"is.. that ok with you Haley.. i don't want there to be
friction between us.." she said snapping into reality.
"why wouldn't it be ok?" i asked laughing
"well.. Susie and Carly said you liked him.." she said
"oh.. but i don't.. you should go over there and talk to
him.. plan a date.." i said happily
"i don't know.. he and my cousin had a thing.. last
year.." she said looking down
"oh. is she in our grade?" i asked
"shes in her first year of college.." she said. my eyes
"i know." she said disgusted.
"well.. your cousin shouldn't effect you." i said
"true.. but.. it would be weird.." she said getting
uncomfortable but still looking at him.
"Go... TRY it.." i said. she chuckled.
"talk to him for me.." she begged.
"that would be uncomfortable." i said
"please!" she begged
"fine." i sighed. we walked over to there table and Max
hit Castro and nodded up to me.
"hey.. Castro." i said uncomfortable.. making him think
i was here to talk to him.. for the reason Candice was.
"hey Haley." he said with a gorgeous smile
"uh... well.. i was wondering." i started.
"yeah.." he said. his smile getting bigger. gosh i feel
bad about this.
"well i was wondering if.. on.. Saturday you would go out
with Candice.." i said. his smile dropped.
"oh.." he said confused and surprised. he looked up at
Candice. she had a hopeful smile on her face.
"of course.. where you wanna go." he asked. his smile
going back up
"um.. i don't care." she said excited.
"how about a dinner." he asked
"alright." she said. i just walked away. i feel like
"i saw what you were planning.. it went great.. then BAM
Sunk." Susie said. Carly hit her arm
"sorry.. not helping..." Susie said getting worried
"its alright.." i said. then the bell rang so i grabbed
my books and walked out the cafe. the first one out.
