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

rang.

Jonah nodded his head, the smirk still clear on his

lips. “I really hope you’re a good actor, Davis,” I told

him.

“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

expected.

~~~

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

questions.
