Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 109
“Only until Caleb’s convinced; this should take a day.
We’re going to sit with him at lunch and talk all about
our two week relationship,” I explained as the late bell
Jonah nodded his head, the smirk still clear on his
lips. “I really hope you’re a good actor, Davis,” I told
“I am…girlfriend,” Jonah replied which caused my
stomach to erupt in butterflies. I nodded before
rushing off to Algebra 2. That went better than I
Lunch time came around quickly and I was still
working out the details of me and Jonah’s short
relationship. We’ve been a couple for two weeks. We
made it official at the bakery downtown. We’re
waiting to have our first kiss on our one month
anniversary. Jonah told me that saying that would
seem a bit weird; he thought that a month was a bit
late for a first kiss; I told him that in the movies, they
always ask to see the couple kiss, which I’m not sure
if that happens in real life, but I just want to make
sure that no lip action happens here.
As I rehearsed my lines, I searched for Jonah. I
waited outside of his classroom and when he walked
out whistling, I yanked on his arm. I guess I
surprised him because he started choking on his spit.
Instead of helping him, I said the first thing that came
to my mind. “How unattractive, boyfriend.”
My statement caused a few people to look at us, well
more at me since Jonah was choking on his own
spit. I patted his back and he finally stopped. “You
scared me,” he muttered once he regained the ability
to breathe. He was hunched over with his hands on
his knees as he inhaled sweet oxygen, something
he’d been missing out on for the past 2 minutes.
I leaned down and whispered in his ear. “I think the
rumor is going to spread that we’re dating,” I
murmured and he shrugged as he stood up.
“The more people that believe and can confirm it, the
better, right?” Jonah asked as he took my hand in his
own and walked us down to lunch while swinging
our hands. He talked casually about his day. I didn’t
bother to reply; my voice was gone and I was just
sitting upon cloud nine. I wonder if this is what it
feels like to be in a healthy relationship.
When we reached lunch, we sat down next to Dana
who raised both of her eyebrows. Her face was as
readable as a book. She was asking if we were
together without using words. She finally decided to
ask. “You two are together?”
While I was looking around, in search of Caleb to see
if he would hear my short and sweet explanation,
Jonah answered instead. “Yes.”
“Finally, I thought it’d never happen,” I urged Dana
not to say anything with my eyes and she seemed
to get the message. I turned to see Jonah staring at
me with a small smile on his face.
Once Caleb arrived with his food, Jonah excused
himself to order our food. When I reached for my
money, he put his hand on my forearm and shook
his head. I’m going to pay him back later.
“You guys seem happy together,” Caleb stated and I
nodded. My phone vibrated in my pocket and I read
the text message. ‘Any information I should know?’ I
looked up to see Jonah standing in line while he
looked at me.
I quickly typed a response. Though we went over it
earlier, it won’t hurt to refresh his memory: ‘We’ve
been a couple for two weeks. We made it official at
the bakery downtown. We’re waiting to have our
first kiss on our one month anniversary.’
Not even a moment later, my phone vibrated again
and I checked the text message. ‘Why a bakery?’ was
his stupid response. He always has to have
