wednesday 12th of september, 2012; The first fundraiser for the months is coming up and times to get your bake on. We are making cupcakes and lots of them so master chefs be ready and for the rest us time to eat some icing.
I sat across from Grace in the living room, the two of us had been spending much more time together and I'd been enjoying the company. It was unusual for myself not be found with a book in my hands and my attention somewhere else, wandering.
It began to wander towards thoughts I did not want to consider at this point in time. But it became harder to stop my thoughts, they were in desperate need of being tamed. All I could think about was Scott.
Why must I be the most awkward being to walk this planet?
"What's on your mind?" Grace spoke, throwing a pillow in my direction though landing next to me. I was dragged from my thoughts and welcomed back into reality.
"What's on your mind?" Grace repeated with a wide grin plastered on her face as she laid down on her stomach; her elbows leaning comfortably on the arm rest of the couch.
"Too much" I confessed with a sigh; slipping my flats off and tucking my legs underneath me. "I think my brain may explode at any moment from the overwhelming amount of thoughts" I added with a frown.
"As long as they aren't dirty thoughts" Grace spoke as she wiggled her eyebrows and smirked. "But knowing you they are the opposite to dirty thoughts" she paused, "you're a very clean girl."
"Thankyou? I think?" I raised an eyebrow, confused by the compliment.
If you could call it a compliment?
"I complimented you, you should be thanking me" Grace giggled, glancing at the digital clock resting on a book shelf and slowly standing. "We need to go find Aria so we can get cooking" she said, smiling softly.
"But if she's with Liam then-" I couldn't finish what I had planned to say due to Grace's interruption.
"Yes, he'll be there" she continued to smile. I stood and she approached me, wrapping her arms around my shoulders in a comforting hug. "You'll be fine" Grace spoke.
"At least one of us has faith in me" I mumbled quietly and slipped my flats back on.
"C'mon, girl. We've got cupcakes to cook!" Grace exclaimed to nobody as she linked her arm in mine. She began to skip and almost dragged me behind her as if I were a rag doll.
We crossed the park with the sun blazing above, the heat was satisfying and I wished that I had a novel and a picnic rug. It was my definition of a perfect day! It was different to each of the other girl's defintions of a perfect day; mine didn't consist of a boy or frantically participating in a sport.
Stop it, Ally!
"He's staring at you" Grace whispered, subtly nudging me as we continued to approach Aria, Liam and Scott sitting underneath a shady tree. "He's still staring at you" she spoke a couple seconds later.
I avoided eye contact with him, either keeping my focus on Aria or anything that surrounded me. We hadn't spoken since the incident because 1. I had no idea what to say and 2. I feared what would occur during the confrontation.
"We need your girlfriend, Liam" Grace spoke once we had accompanied the other three. Liam peered up and smiled that crooked smile before replying.
I continued to peer at a nearby flock of birds that were wandering around the green grass. Until they had been chased by a group of immature boys.
"Well, I guess I can let you take her" Liam paused, "But only if you take me too."
"No!" I accidentally shouted, my face suddenly heating up and no doubt it had gone bright pink with embarrassment. Aria looked over at me with a raised eyebrow.
"What she means is we can't afford a new kitchen" Grace said bluntly, saving my sudden outburst. "Which knowing your ability to destory and injure, we will need" she added with an impressed grin.
Liam mumbled something inaudible but I don't think it mattered too much.
"Come on lover girl" Grace said as she pulled Aria up and dragging her away.
"Don't forget to feed Scott" Aria called blowing a kiss at the boys. "And I can cook" she said to Grace and I; the two of us rolled our eyes and shook our heads.
That was like saying I was outgoing.
