I spent most of my time staring at the phone.
When would she call? Would she call?
After almost two weeks, I couldn't take it anymore. I went over to Cole's house on a Saturday. "Cole," I called, shutting the door behind me, "I'm here." I waited for a response, but didn't get one. "Cole?" I walked into the living room, and saw him sucking some girls face off. Sighing, I pulled their faces apart. The girl was ticked, and she got up and left.
"Man, what was that for?!" Cole exclaimed, wiping off his mouth. "Do you remember a girl named Hattie at your party?" I ignored him. He chuckled, and laid back down on the couch. "Cedric, I don't know. There was, like, a million girls there." "Where did you hang up those posters?" "One was by that bar on the corner, and I put some by stores so girls would see them. ..Why?"
I stormed out of his house and drove away in my truck, ignoring Cole's calls. I searched high and low for her, but couldn't find her. When I asked about her around town, no one even had the slightest clue to who she was.
Finally, I gave up and went home. I barely even knew her, why was I trying so hard to find her? She was just another girl. I flopped down on the couch and turned on the T.V. Brrriiiinng! Brrriiiiinng! I looked over at my cellphone. An unknown number was calling. Hattie.
"Hi Cedric. It's Hattie. I was wondering if you'd want to get lunch tomorrow."
My heart stopped. She wanted to get lunch with me. "Uh, sure."
"Cool. Do you know where that little cafe is in town that just opened up?" She asked.
"Well then, I'll see you there at noon. Bye, Cedric."
"Bye-" I started, but she'd already hung up. I couldn't believe it. I was going on a date with the most beautiful girl, and she had asked me.
