Chapter twelve
Disaster Date
It was Wednesday and everyone gets to watch the football team play and the school's basketball team. Girls, mostly the cheerleaders find the basketball players to be hot, they were playing against another team right after football.

Dylan and Shania sat down on the staircase opposite Mike and Sarah. The football match had started and noise Could be heard along side happy screams. Linda and Jessica sat down at the far end of the other staircase laughing and sharing a cheese pack. Two basketball players, I meant popular basket ball players, Jason and Derek sat beside them, having fun too.

Every minute, Jessica's eyes would travel towards where Dylan was sitting with Shania, she could imagine the happiness they felt with they way there were laughing and playing with each other, even making out sometimes. Derek noticed it, so he decided to change his sitting position. He was now sitting to block Jessica's view towards Dylan, she felt relieved a bit.

Derek has been nursing some feelings towards jess and he felt now was the right time to jokingly bring them out since Linda was here, she could help. He had made little enquiry about her through Linda's help since they were good friends, he had learnt about the one sided love of Jessica which he found absurd but he was ready to change that.

"jess, I've been staring at you for a while now and you can imagine how good you look. Seems I've just got myself a permanent date for duo parties." Derek winked at her. She replied him with a smile. "oh Derek, you can't be serious right. But I really appreciate the fact that you think me to be attractive".

Linda got the message he was trying to send and chipped in. "that's another inspiration on the next theme of my party. A duo party, you must come with your date." they all laughed and continue munching their cheese.

"Mike, we should go on a double date with Dylan and Shania. It's going to be fun". Sarah suggested, looking at Mike. "I don't think it's necessary, I mean we can just go out like only the both of us". He answered her but she didn't oblige. "we should do something different besides I don't think they will have any problem with it. Saturday night." "OK I......

" she didn't allow him complete what he was about to say when she faced Shania and told her about the double date. She told Dylan about it and he agreed. Sarah was extremely happy but Mike faked a smile, he was furious within.
* * * * * *
Saturday evening approached really fast and Sarah couldn't wait for Mike to come and pick her. Linda wasn't happy with her over excited friend and she kept advising her to take it easy, but she was too overwhelmed and instead she replied linda arrogantly.
"Sarah, I think you should take it easy, your makeover is meant to be light, this is dinner, not a party. I can say you are even overdressed. Even Shania's first date, she handled it better than you are doing. It wasn't evn his idea, it's your idea for crying out loud".

"see, Linda just leave me alone. At least you should be happy for me, I'm finally going out on a date with someone I like, while u go under the pretence of saying you aren't ready for a relationship when the truth is that nobody finds you attractive".

Linda raised her head instantly, she was wounded but chose not to say anything. Jessica that had been quiet since decided to talk. "Sarah that's bad of you, she was just trying to help and besides, this clearly shows you will be choosing Mike over us. You haven't even started you are already deserting us, you don't need to be arrogant. Just go, we will be here when you run home crying."

Sarah hissed "I don't need your advice". With that she stormed out of the room, on her way to Mikes car. He faked a smile when he saw her but deep down he was annoyed, the ride to the restaurant was silent but Dylan and Shania were there already.

Sarah screamed when she saw Shania and embraced her. They walked to their table and Sarah decided to be all bossy, ordering for everyone one. "we should be having shrimps with spices, cocktail drinks, blue wine, salad mixture, and of course there should be cheese and chips with full chicken....."

Mike shouted at her, making her trail off on her speech. "would you just shut up? You should have said we were going on charity date where you will be the donor, or what is this nonsense about? Double date my foot".

"you two should calm down ". Dylan's effort in making the situation look less awkward wasn't welcomed as Sarah gave her reply too.

"what's your problem Mike? You have been the only one complaining, you could leave for all I care, I will just pretend like I'm single." Mike gave an hysterical laughter at her statement.

"oh sure, you are single, because I don't remember asking you out or ever calling you my girlfriend, I only invited you to accompany me to a party once and you are here feeling on cloud nine. Of course I can't pull up with someone like you, I can't keep answering the questions of who is the man in the relationship. All you know is crazy fashion and expensive things and meals. " with that harsh statement, he stormed out of the restaurant.

Sarah couldn't hold back the tears, she let them flow freely, after all, her friends were right, she was even humiliated, embarrassed in the presence of Dylan and Shania. She hated Mike.

" don't worry we would take you home" Shania told her, soothing her by the shoulder. She just nodded and followed them to the car.

Chapter thirteen
Tears and apologies
Shame, no sense of belonging is what you feel after insulting and turning down your best friends in place of someone that doesn't love you.

Sarah couldn't go back to Linda's house, neither could she give her a call. She decided to ride to school alone. She missed their laughter and their talk about fashion on their way to school. She knew it wasn't too late, she could beg and they will accept her but she was ashamed, she couldn't even tell them how Mike had embarrassed her.

She looked around as she parked her car, she felt she was too early to be in school. She decided taking a walk round the botanical garden would be a good idea to kill time. The garden was surrounded by a very big iron fence in which you can see through the big holes in the fence. She took a seat on the bench and watched the free butterflies perch from one flower to another and plants ready to get started for the morning.

"is someone enjoying the view?" came a thick voice beside her. She was annoyed when she saw Mike sitting beside her, she had gone too deep in her thoughts that she didn't evn notice when he came.

"Mike, what do you want? I don't ever want to see you beside me, I hate you so much and I'm not sorry I do".

He was stunned at her outburst, but he knew he deserved it. He had acted too irrational while she was just trying to make the double date worth it. He was here to apologise, only if she would hear him out, he liked her too but he marvelled at how she was allover him, making the first move. "see Sarah, I'm sorry, I know I hurt you that night, even left you stranded but I'm very sorry. I was being selfish, I wanted a date for only the two of us where we could pour our minds out and know more about each other but with you bossing around, and the double date, I was suffocating ". He raised his head to look at her apologetically.

" oh right, I can be a suffocating girlfriend, but what's your job? To correct me and tell me that's not how things should be done, but instead I got insulted. Right, I'm not your girlfriend, so you don't owe me an apology. I even had to ditch and insult my friends because of you, I thought choosing you would be worth it, but what do I get? Embarrassment, loneliness, I don't even know how to face them. And you think a mere apology can solve that? Let me tell you something, I've always been the boss of me, so I'm bossy ". With that she turned to leave but his next request stopped her on her track.

" can you be my date for Linda's duo party tomorrow night? I really don't have who to ask and I'm deeply sorry, I mean it" she smirked at his words, he could be so arrogant. "thanks but no, I'm not an option". Was her reply as she left the garden without taking another glance at him.
**
Jessica and Linda were making a he'll of noise, checking out what they bought for the party preparation and talks about dates. They couldn't wait to laugh at some pairs and see some unbelievable pairs, of course there are some pairs you know you would surely see. Sarah knocked on the door gently but nobody opened, she knocked again and Linda's voice came up. "Sarah, when did you start knocking before entering your own house? Or do you even need to knock before entering my room? Oh I know it's you so come in".

Sarah opened the door and saw that Linda's room was a mess. With her heads down, she cleared a part on the bed and sat down. Jessica asked how her date went but no reply. She and Linda both exchanged a questioned look as Sarah began to sniff, they waited for her to talk.

"girls, I'm very sorry, like I'm so sorry, I thought Mike was it for me, I didn't mean to ditch you guys just like that. It's was only both of you before, yet you allowed me as your number three sister and all I did was insult and choose some guy who doesn't even think I'm worth any pain over you. I'm very sorry, I learnt my lesson and I felt really lonely and shallow. " This time she had began to shed tears uncontrollably as she sniffed some more. Jessica drew her closer to her.

" we knew you would still come around, and we aren't pushing you away. Linda has forgiven you and you are still welcome here. Now tell us about the date. " The enthusiasm was there as they leaned forward to listen to Sarah explain all her ordeals and embarrassment in front of Mike. She didn't even skip the morning event when he arrogantly came with his date ask out for the duo party making it seem like an apology. The girls laughed and told her all was fine. She shouldn't worry about it, they have a very big party to plan.

"I don't think I should be in that party" Came Sarah's voice after the laughter. "I thought you guys said no dates no entry". Linda smiled at her.

"you are a planner, it's not necessary for you to have a date. And of course it's not hard for you to get one either". She told her assuringly.

"what would I have done without you girls? Thanks so much for being there." Sarah sniffed playfully and hugged the girls. Linda burst into a hot laughter as she tumbled upon the balloons on the floor.

Chapter fourteen
Duo party
The girls awed at their marvelous arrangements and theme of the party, it wasn't going to be a dull moment. Guests invited with their dates were arriving and everything looked legal only that no waiters walking around with drinks and no round tables for each families but the fun everyone was having was awesome with their dates. Linda was so happy, she could as well be assigned to plan their prom party. Sarah decided against any new dates so she just took the position at the door to welcome dates or couples to be or even couples.

Derek stayed with Jess all the time like he was scared she would run away. Many students shot their surprise stares at them and it only made her uncomfortable. They even heard someone whisper 'they are so hot together, darn they so much fit'. Derek smiled and walked her through the busy party to d kitchen area, it was kind of the only quiet place.

Linda was also having unlimited fun as she and Jason stole the dance floor, she was a lover of music but she never thought her date could be so much of a dancer. She was overwhelmed as he spinned her upside down and still got her in place. She was having so much fun, more like the best party she had ever planned. However, she didn't miss the fact that Derek tried his best to make jess happy and it was working. For the first time, she wasn't doing something stupid because of Dylan and she was smiling.

Sarah was having a good time at the entrance, she got to greet everyone and make sacarstic comments on some girls outfit or even about some of the couples. Just then Mike came in with his date, so much for a lier. So he lied he couldn't get anyone to ask, she laughed. He thought she was stupid. The girl he held as his date was a cute blonde on mini gown with red heels. She faked a smile as she welcomed them in, he even went as far as shaking her, can you imagine? She dug her well fixed fingers into his wrist, so much for being a jerk. He writhed in pain but hid it so well from his date. Served him right. Before he could utter any offensive word, the blonde dragged him forward as she was delighted at the view called party in front of her. He reluctantly followed behind. Sarah guessed his destiny was glued to clingy girls.

Dylan and Shania were having great fun but he was surprised to see Jessica with Derek, he shrugged and turned back to Shania.

"so Shania, what if I kiss you now? " He asked her. " wow that's gonna be fantastic " she replied, still holding on to him. It was time to dance with your date so almost everyone was in. He held her by the waist and bent slowly to kiss her. She chuckled as they broke free to catch their breath.

Jessica managed to catch her breath as she saw Dylan kissing Shania. Immediately, she released herself from Derek's arm and ran towards the back door. This shouldn't be affecting her like this, she thought she was fine until now. Derek ran after her as she made her way towards the backdoor and sat by the swing side. She controlled her tears from falling.

"Jessica, you don't need to tell me what's wrong or explain, just cry all you want, if that's what you want to do right now." She was very thankful, he didn't probe her further, she just rested her head on his shoulder as he sat beside her on the swing.

After some minutes, she was laughing again, he was making her laugh with his jokes. Unknowingly to them, Dylan was walking towards the swing with Shania to say hello.
Derek then asked if jess still wanted to dance but she declined. "I don't want to go back in there, I don't want to embarrass myself any more than I already did" She sniffed. Oblivious to the fact that they had company, he stroked her hair and pecked her forehead.

Dylan stopped on his tracks as the words Jessica spoke were replaying in his head. He felt dizzy, everything felt familiar, her teary face and the smeared mascara, he holding her face in his hands assuring her everything was going to be fine. He still couldn't remember her face as it wasn't clear and it gave him more headache. He held his head and fell to the ground.

Shania was scared, she shouted Derek's name and sat beside Dylan crying. Derek was surprised to see them but he ran to where Dylan was lying down unconsciously. Jessica followed behind dialing Mike 's number. He came immediately and Dylan was carried to the car with Shania following behind crying.

Derek sighed and faced jess. "at least it didn't ruin the party and the students didn't get to witness it, we should head back before Linda suspects anything". She nodded and followed him back inside the party.

Flash back
It was jess nine year old birthday party, and she was very excited, Dylan had got her a very nice present and she couldn't help but feel all giddy. He asked her for a dance and she chuckled, he knew she couldn't dance but he promised to help. Things didn't go as planned as she fell ass down and everyone laughed at her, the celebrant.
She ran out of the dance room with Dylan running behind. She cried her eyes out and he kept apologising and consoling her, he told her they could try again. "No, I can't go back in there, I can't embarrass myself anymore than I have, I just want to stay here with you". He held her face in his hands and assured her all was going to be fine before he finally embraced her.
