A/N: So, I get the feeling a few of you are enjoying this story. Thank you, to all my readers! And I actually have a review or two and that's important to me. Granted, it's not as much as I have on Fanfiction but okay. Enjoy!
I didn't have any more…dreams…shall we say. But she was the first thing on my mind when I woke up. Insane. I just started liking her and all of a sudden I'm thinking about her all the time. I got dressed and headed to the living room. I made a bowl of cereal when my dad showed up.
"Hey there, Tyler!" he happily said as he took a seat next to me.
"Hey, dad. A little happy today, are we?"
"I just thought I'd talk to you for a minute." I faced him and I could tell he was holding something in his pocket. "Listen, Tyler. I think you're old enough to use these." He reached them out of his pocket and put a bunch of condoms on the table. "I didn't want to do this in front of your mother, we all know she'd have a heart attack. I may sound a little strange right now but, I want you to practice using these, they might come in h—"
"Actually, dad," he looked up at me. "I've been practicing using those. I started about a year and a half ago. I know it may seem like I was a bit young for that but, I decided to try. I know how to use those."
He leaned in and whispered in my ear. "Did you lose your virginity?"
"No, dad! Just because I know how to use those doesn't mean I'm not a virgin!"
Wrong timing. My mom just walked in. I pulled the condoms off the table and stuffed them in my pocket. She slammed her palms on the table.
"Did you just say 'I'm not a virgin'?"
"Mom, you didn't hear correctly. I said, 'it doesn't mean I'm not a virgin'. You just came in at the wrong time."
"I'm letting you off the hook. For now." She grabbed her purse and headed out the door.
"Whew!" dad exclaimed. "I thought for sure she was gonna find out!"
I grabbed my bag and headed for the door. "Hey dad?"
"Thanks for understanding the hormones of my age."
"Daddy, what are hormones?" My little brother asked dad. I left before I could hear any more. I knew dad wouldn't explain it, not yet, but I just wanted to leave before the awkwardness sunk in.
"Hey Tyler!" I looked up and realized that I had been walking for a while. I saw Ray at the other side of the street. It wasn't a very busy town so I just walked across the street and greeted her.
"Did you finish the Bio homework?" she asked.
"Yeah, here." I pulled the sheet from my bag and handed it to her.
"Oh, thank you so much!" She hugged me and I hugged her back almost wanting to kiss her cheek at least. But for now, I would have to deal with just smelling her hair. Apples. I wonder what shampoo she uses.
She let go of me and we walked to the school. It wasn't very far but we did have a conversation on the way.
"So, what are we doing in English today?" she asked.
"Probably reciting 'Romeo and Juliet' again."
"I'll probably volunteer to be the nurse again."
"I thought we were on Act II?"
"Oh, that's right! Well then, I'll volunteer to be Juliet today instead. You know I love that whole 'what's in a name' thing."
"Are you gonna volunteer to be Romeo again?"
"Such vague answers from someone who usually never shuts up."
"I guess I'm just tired."
"Well, I can imagine from a nightmare, I guess it would keep you up."
I wish I could tell her that it wasn't a nightmare and that it was a wonderful dream that was amazing. But I think it's just too soon. She hasn't had a boyfriend in ages and she told me she never wants one. She broke up with her first boyfriend because he was cheating on her. She never really tried again. But she always hangs out with guys, you would think she'd have a boyfriend at all times.
"Earth to Tyler!"
"I asked what it was about. The nightmare?"
She laughed. "Freddy? I had a dream about him that me and him were eating popcorn and watching a movie. And you say you have nightmares about him?"
"Hey, the movie is called 'Nightmare on Elm Street' for a reason. He's creepy." She raised an eyebrow. "But awesome."
"That's more like it."
We got into school and headed for English. She was copying off my homework before class started and suddenly, her mechanical lead was out.
"Do you have any lead?"
"Yeah, it's in my pocket." However, I forgot that it was in my left pocket and she was on my right. And then I realized what I had hidden in my right pocket from morning that I had to hide from my mom.
"Wow, Tyler. I didn't know you bring stuff like this to school!" I faced her and she was holding up a Trojan package. She was smirking as well.
"Give me that!"
She stuck it in her cleavage. "Tell me why you have it at school."
I groaned. "You wouldn't understand."
"I mean, I know you're good with the ladies, but I didn't know you went this far."
"I don't! Just give it back!"
"You'll have to get it yourself."
Fine. If she was gonna play like that…
I reached into her shirt and pulled it out. She didn't have much of a reaction. She was used to it by now. I put it back in my pocket with the others.
"Would you just tell me why you have it in the first place?" Ray begged.
"It's none of your business." I snapped.
"God, you don't have to have an attitude, just tell me why."
I inhaled and exhaled slowly.
"This morning, my dad wanted me to practice using these. However my mom came into the room and I knew she'd have a shit attack. So stuffed them in my pocket and they stayed there. Okay?"
She smiled. "That was all you had to say, Weasley."
Yeah, she liked to call me Ron, Weasley, My King (my favorite), Ginger, Weaselbee, and Burger King. I don't know if I said this, but I'm a ginger and that means: red hair, blue eyes, freckles all over, and pale skin. The reason behind 'Burger King' is that we did a renaissance thing and I wanted to be the king and everyone knew my last name was Burger, so she came up with 'Burger King'. I acted just like Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter books. But instead of the Brunette, I've fallen for the girl with black hair and blue highlights. Well, now they're teal. They're fading. But she is a bit of a bookworm. Anyway, back on topic.
"Well, I hope you know that I am still a virgin. I don't plan on losing it soon." Unless it's to her. Then Mrs. McCullohs came in and walked up to Ray.
"Here's the book you wanted. I never got into it and I hope you enjoy it." Ray took the book and smiled.
"Thank you, Mrs. McCullohs!" The book in her hands seemed very…her. Great British Stories. She wants to go to Europe. It makes sense.
"Let me guess," she looked over to me. "You're gonna ignore me and start reading it now."
"Mm, possibly." She chuckled and opened the book. Everyone was in here now. Except for one, but he always came late. Then he burst in during the pledge of allegiance.
"Sorry I'm late." Although he didn't really look it.
"Speak of the devil," I murmured so only I could hear. Ray would have killed me if I were to insult him. Wyatt. He dropped his bag and finished the pledge with us. He sat next to Ray next to the wall. There were two desks in each row and column. Ray chose to sit next to Wyatt at the beginning of the year. I just sat in the seat closest in the next column over.
"So, Wyatt," she said in a voice that meant she was going to say something informational. "Guess what Tyler brought to school today!" She said in a joyful tone. My head snapped up and my eyes widened. Ray faced me and I shook my head furiously. She wouldn't…
"Ooh, what'd he bring?" Wyatt said in the same tone as Ray.
Please, Ray, don't! She saw my expression and her face sort of twisted into somewhat like pity. She dropped the joke and I shook my bag so she knew what was in there.
Her eyes lit up at the sound of crackers.
"He brought me a snack!" She said to Wyatt. "GIMME THE CHEEZITS!" She said as loudly as she could in a whisper.
I handed her the large bag of Cheez-its. If there was anything that you could bribe her with, it was Cheez-its. She'd follow Lord Voldemort if he offered them. She immediately started munching on them. Mrs. McCullohs didn't really care if people ate in her class as long as they didn't leave crumbs. She was half-way done with the bag when she started asking for volunteers for the scene of the day. She asked about Juliet and Ray's hand shot up. She closed the bag and stuck it in her bag. She headed to the front of the class with her copy of 'Romeo and Juliet'. Then she asked for boys to be Romeo and I raised my hand. So did Wyatt. But I was faster. She picked me and I joined Ray at the front.
"O, speak again, bright angel! For thou art
As glorious to this night, being o'er my head,
As is a wingèd messenger of heaven
Unto the white, upturnèd, wondering eyes
Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him
When he bestrides the lazy-puffing clouds
And sails upon the bosom of the air."
Then she spoke.
"O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Or, if thou wilt not, but be sworn my love,
And I'll no longer be Capulet."
Dear Lord, I wanted to swear I loved her but Romeo didn't speak up until later. Plus I kinda didn't want to proclaim this in front of the entire class. Oh well. In due time, I'll tell her.
We finished the scene and sat back down.
"Winged messenger huh?" she asked me. "I guess I'll have to add 'Cupid' to your nicknames list."
I'd be cupid for her any day. In due time, Tyler. In due time…
