going to tell you my story about my Freshman year Homecoming. This
is all true.
It started after Anime night (Otaku club at the
library) at 9 in the cafeteria. I was hanging out with my friends.
A lot of people were dressed up even though it was supposed to be
casual. Me, I'm wearing a 3/4 hoodie, tank top, and black mini
skirt. The cheerleaders ran to the bathrooms to change and my
friend Brenna and I were dancing to the Time Warp. Yeah we're
dumb. I found my other friends and they weren't dressed up and
I was relieved that I wasn't the only one not in my casual
wear. Anne and Jenna dragged me from one side of the cafeteria to
the other to take pictures of us. I took them. I walked back in and
found my cousin, Andrew dancing like an idiot. I tried getting his
attention but, failed when he elbowed me in the face.
I ended up crying on Ariana's jeans, my head on her lap and
tears falling from my eyes. She was bored and told me she was going
to the courtyard. I followed. She met up with her friend, Samantha
and they held hands for a while. My eyes locked onto what was going
on with Brenna and Andrew. Brenna was gaping and then she nodded. I
was EXTREMELY confused. Matt, Brenna's step-brother, and his
girl-friend Chelcie(she's his ex now) came over with a
"What's going on here?" he asked, with a
"I just asked out your sister," Drew answered.
I smiled and started to bug them about their cutesy new
relationship and Brenna told me to go away so I did.
I saw that Ariana was sucking face with a guy and I was alone with
no one to hang out with. Well, that was until Samantha approached
"Hi," she said. "You're Nathan's cousin,
right?" Nathan was my other cousin, the one who didn't go
I nodded. "Yeah," I answered.
"I'm Sam," she noted.
"I'm Brie," I added.
"Ariana's mine," she said, frowning. I saw what she
was looking at. Ariana and her boyfriend kissing.
"I'm forever alone," I bit my lip.
Her finger interlocked with mine. "Let's dance?" she
I smiled at her. "Sure."
So we ended up dancing for an hour or so and we walked into the
I don't remember exactly what we were talking about, but I
remember her saying she was part black.
I had candy in my hoodie pocket from Anime night so, I started
eating them. We walked back into the cafeteria and we weren't
very happy about the lovey-dovey couples.
"They make me uncomfortable," she sighed.
"Makes me lonely," I added.
She was looking for someone. Her ex, Michael. She wanted to dance
with him but, he wasn't there. Neither was her boyfriend.
"Hey, just wondering," she said, in a awkward tone.
"Are you bi?" I nodded. "Good."
"Why?" I asked.
"Just because," she smiled. "I need someone to
My heart skipped a few beats. I laughed nervously as she dragged me
to the dance floor and stared into my eyes. Before I knew it, she
was making out with me and I just stood there.
She told me she'd be back because she had to go to the
bathroom. I walked back to the courtyard for some fresh air. Jenna
saw me and she had her friend, Cheyenne with her.
"Are you and her going out?" Cheyenne asked.
"No," I stated. "She's going out with someone
"Who?" Jenna asked.
I told them and their eyes widened.
"Well, Good luck!" Cheyenne said, skipping away.
I went back inside the cafeteria to Sam who was looking for me. She
interlocked her hands with mine and sighed.
"Kiss me back this time?" she asked, she giggled.
"You caught me off guard," I laughed, nervously.
She went in for the kiss again and I kissed her back, again and
again and again. When we pulled away, I noticed Marshall, my
best-friend, wearing a Zoot-suit. A yellow, pin-striped zoot-suit.
That made me smile even more.
At the end of Homecoming, Sam and I ended up kissing 10 times,
which seemed like a hundred times. I was "high" from all
of the excitement of that night for weeks.
THAT was back in October. It's Late May, and I still remember
her kiss. I remember how it felt. How it tasted.
