Chapter 10

The next morning when I woke up, I went through my usual routine. I decided I was going to walk to school. Walking equals not having to see Gerard. I told my mom I was taking off early so I could walk and she said that was fine. I got my stuff together and made my way down to the corner. But when I turned the corner the last person I wanted to see was waiting for me. Gerard; yes, Gerard.

“Oh my go-“I started. “Look, I like you. I’ve wanted to tell you since I first laid eyes on you. You’re the most astonishing person I’ve ever seen and met. Your amazing.” He said cutting me off. “I was going to tell you but then I realized that maybe you wouldn’t like me back.” He said making it even more awkward. “Well…I think you need to ask me out on a date” I said. When I looked up through my bangs he was staring at me. He pushed my hair aside and put his hand on my cheek. He leaned in and we got close. Then he stopped, “I would kiss you but my mom is across the street looking at us right now.” He said while still only 3 centimeters away from my face. I took a step back and his mom yelled out to us, “You guys are going to be late if you don’t hurry and let me drive you to school!” we both laughed.

The whole car ride to school we were just staring into each other’s eyes. I was turned sideways leaning against the door, he was doing the same. My legs were pulled up to my chest and I was looking through my bangs; when I flipped my hair it was out of my face and Gerard’s eyes opened, “I can see your eyes from here! I usually can’t see them from this far!” he said. “Oh yeah, I need a haircut. I was thinking of getting it cut short when summer comes along.”. Summer was a long time away. We have only been in school for 5 weeks.

When we got to school we walked to my usual spot in the morning. While we were standing he got close to me again. I felt weird since I never liked other people’s PDA. I stopped him by lightly pushing him away on his chest. “No, not in public. Plus you still have to ask me out on that date” I told him. “Ok then, Diana, will you go on a date with me? We shall go to my house….something!” I could tell he wasn’t really sure what we were going to do, but all I cared about was spending time with him. Then the bell rang.

I barely got through freshmen seminar without falling asleep. Then I had science with Gerard. I was excited because we had all period to do our project. I was walking to our normal nutrition spot alone while thinking what we could possibly be doing for our date. When I got to my friends I hadn’t even noticed that I was already there. “What the hell is up with you Diana? Your just staring into nothing.” Asked Sam. “Oh, I didn’t tell you? I got asked out on a date!” I exclaimed. “Oh my gosh! I’m so happy for you! Who was it? Wait, let me guess. Did that guy you were with this morning have any part in this?” she asked with a smirk on her face. The bell rang to go to science. “Shut up bitch.” I said while laughing. We all laughed a bit and disbursed into our class rooms.

When I walked in I saw Gerard at his seat near the back. He saw me and smiled and I returned a smile. The whole class he was staring at me. “Gerard Way! You might want to start paying attention to the lesson rather than stare at Diana!” exclaimed the teacher. I sat there for a whole two minutes embarrassed as hell. My face felt like it was burning, to hide it I cupped my face and acted like I was laughing. “Sorry” said a shy Gerard.

After class I ran to the cafeteria dying to tell my friends what happened. And considering how far away the cafeteria was I got a pretty good work out. When the bell rang yet again to go to math class, I booted it to my locker and then to my next class. When we had free time I was talking to Justice. Gerard pulled up a chair next to me, “I’m excited for our date today. Meet me at my house when you get home.” He said. I blushed, “Ok Romeo, get back to your seat before you get in trouble.” And with that he left.

“Did I hear date?” said Justice. Great, Justice was going to go all out on me about how ugly he is and how he absolutely needed to give me advice about dating. “It’s fine really I don’t need any advice.” I told him when he really did start talking. “You sure? Because I’ve had my fair share of dates!” he objected. “No, no. Its fine.” I assured him. “Ok” he said.

When Math class was over I booted it to the car. Once I got home I changed into pants and an old t-shirt. I walked over to Gerard’s and he was waiting for me on the front lawn. “Ready for our date my lady?” he asked as he was getting up. He hugged me and butterflies shot up through my stomach. “Ready as I’ll ever be.” I said. I never wanted to leave those arms. They were warm and comforting, like a cup of hot chocolate filled with soft marshmallows.
Hope you all like it!
I've got big big plans for later on!
