My school is having a Sadie Hawkins dance right before we go on winter break, and I can't say I'm excited about it because it's girls inviting a boy they like to it. Now if it was a Sam dance you could ONLY invite a member of the same gender...that's not going to happen.
I was in my last period today and I got a text attached to a picture of a girl in my grade, Sarah, asking me if I could meet her at the park right by where I live after school? I texted back yes and didn't hear anymore from her.
I went home and changed clothes, and sure enough Sarah was there waiting for me. She's kinda tall like me but she's really plain for a girl, and quiet. She just wears her hair tied back, never wears makeup or does her nails.
While Sarah became my dog's new best friend I sat down on the bench next to her, and I noticed how pretty she is...I've never felt that about a girl before?
Sam, the Sadie Hawkins dance is coming up...I...tomorrow....I...I'm going to invite you to be my date tomorrow...if that's okay with you?
A GIRL wants ME to go to a dance with her? Whaaaaaaaaat?????
Sure, I said.
She smiled and said thanks without looking at me.
Sarah, I asked, why me of all the boys in the school?
The silence killed me.
She pulled her phone out of her shorts pocket and scrolled to a picture of her and another girl, their faces close together smiling...just like the pictures Matthew and I take together.
That's Emily Sam....going on four months...I know you know what that's like.
I thought I was going to pass out.
I'm on your side Sam I just need your help, I need my mother to stop asking me questions...we're on the same team Sam.
I gave her what must have been a stupid look.
Sarah stood up and asked me for a hug, and she squeezes as hard as I do. Then she said something that shook me hard.
(My boyfriend's first and last name) is a lucky guy Sam...and I cope by laughing too.
A few minutes later I got a text from her:
Thanks Sam www.oasisjournals.com it's okay
