Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 86
I’m glad that the football game is at the other school
because they have an indoor field, unlike my school.
I was currently dressed in the warmest yet
‘fashionable’ clothes that I could find. Meredith said
something about looking cute but staying warm. I
was wearing a blue sweater and an undershirt with
the thickest pair of jeans in my closet. I was wearing
my snow boots and I had my hair up in a messy
Since tickets are available at the stand, Jonah and I are
getting there early so we can make sure we actually
get tickets. The game starts at 7 but Jonah’s already
on his way and its only 5:30. My stomach felt like
mush as I stood in front of the mirror and examined
myself. I brushed my eyelashes with mascara and I
put eyeliner on.
My door flew open to reveal my brother whose face
was covered in brown stuff, which I’m hoping is
chocolate, and he was grinning childishly. “Why
aren’t you ready? You have a date in two hours!”
My brother stared at me for a minute before he
frowned. “I know.”
“What’s wrong? Don’t tell me you’re going to cancel
on Mere! She’s going to be crushed!” I exclaimed and
he shook his head.
“I don’t know what to wear; I haven’t been on a date
since junior year,” he told me as he kicked the carpet.
“Why don’t you take a shower and I’ll pick
something out for you?” I told him and he nodded.
I walked into my brother’s room, heading towards
his closet. I flipped through the various clothes
before I grabbed a black t-shirt and black jeans.
Deciding to go from emo to casual, I grabbed a red,
black and gray button down shirt and tossed that
beside it. I grabbed his red Converses and threw
them beside the clothes before I went downstairs,
waiting for Jonah to show up.
About 20 minutes after I set up my brother’s clothes,
he came downstairs, dressed fully with a grin on his
face. “You look nice…thanks to me.”
My brother rolled his eyes but didn’t bother wiping
the grin off of his face. “You do, too, I guess. You
look like a penguin.”
I looked down at my outfit. “How? I don’t resemble a
penguin at all.”
“Yeah you do, you waddle because your clothes are
too thick,” he told me while scarfing down a cookie.
I just scowled at him. “What are your plans for
“I made reservations at this restaurant and after that,
we’re going to go walking along the boardwalk,” he
told me with a shrug. I stared at my brother, who
knew he was a closet romantic?
I nodded my head. “That actually sounds nice.” I
smiled. He nodded his head enthusiastically. “Bring
an extra sweater.”
“Why?” he asked me as he ate another cookie.
I grinned. “Mere isn’t going to wear a sweater and
she will only break the rules of fashion if you give her
He nodded as soon as a car horn honked outside. He
looked at me and grinned before wriggling his
eyebrows. “Get that kiss.”
I escaped the house while he continuously made
kissing noises. When I got into Jonah’s car, he smiled
at me. “You look like a penguin.”
“Just drive, boy.”
