Valentines day had arrived. I was nervous, beyond nervous. Heck, they'd have to create a new word for how I was feeling...Spudniked.
"I'm really nervous..." I said to Michelle, my face drenched with oozing sweat.
"You'll be fine" assured Michelle. I could tell she was doubtful.
Steve came over carrying a present, I noticed that the usual greasiness of his hair had been replaced with what looked like gel.
"Have you seen Angelica?" asked Steve.
"I saw her before" said Michelle, "What did you get her?"
"An autographed skull from the album cover of our favourite band 'The Grey Skulls' just like she wanted" explained Steve.
"...Romantic" joked Michelle.
I glanced down the corridor and saw Lisa coming our way, her army of minions by her side. Her blonde hair flipped around her every time she took a step, her heels shaking the ground and her thick red lips constantly forming insults. She looked out of this world.
"Here it goes..." I said nervously, before taking a step in front of her, "Hi Lisa!"
"Like get out of my way, loser!" she snapped.
"I know you like me Lisa, you don't have to hide it" I said, each word hurting more than the last.
Her friends burst into laughter and Lisa grinned.
"That was just a joke! You actually fell for that?" she sniggered.
I couldn't feel my legs, my mouth was numb and my vision was going blurry. The cackling rung in my ears and I fell to the ground, the grinning face of Lisa being the last thing I saw.
I woke up in a hospital bed. Mort, Michelle, Steve and Angelica were standing by my bed, all with expressions of concern.
"W...what happened?" I asked feebly, looking around.
"You fainted and hit your head off Lisa's shoes" explained Mort, "They had to call an ambulance and they said your parents are on your way".
"Oh god.." I groaned, "I embarrassed myself didn't I?"
"Well...people were laughing...when they thought you were dead, they kinda ran away..." said Angelica.
I sighed, "I'm such an idiot...great...now I'm single on Valentines day...".
"Why do you care so much?" asked Michelle, "You've never been in love have you?"
I realized how true this was. There wasn't anyone I was in love with...sure some people were hot but I didn't LOVE them.
"Oh god, I'm so dumb" I sighed.
"We got used to it" assured Steve sarcastically.
"So... how was your Valentines day?" I asked.
"It was pretty good" said Steve.
"Are you kidding?" said Angelica, staring at him, "We went to a hospital where there was lots of blood! This was the best ever!"
"I guess..." I said.
Maybe relationships aren't all their cracked up to be...
