15. Stacey(part 2)
“What happened to us spending time together this weekend?” I asked Stacey.
”Come on now Katie bear, don’t be a grouch. You probably said no when they invited you, huh “.
”Duh, you know me. I don’t do parties like that”.
”Which is why I had to say yes, plus I want to party with your new friends,” Stacey said.
“Ughh, they are not my friends”.
”Really, you’re friends with Dean on Fubook and he’s fine.”
I could feel myself blushing after she admits Dean was fine.
”Ooh look at you blushing, is that your future boo” Stacey teased me.
“No, thank you and wait are you stalking my Fubook,” I asked her.
How did she know I accepted his friend request.
“Duh, I stalk you. I noticed right away when you went from 109 friends to 110.”
Buzz buzz, Stacey phone vibrates interrupting us and I hope it’s not Chase.
“I got the address, tonight we going to be lit” Stacey yelled.
The universe must really hate me, I thought.
We made it to my house and I noticed my mom car was outside.
“Wait did my mom drop you at my school?” I asked Stacey.
“You know it doll face”.
”Hey girls,” my mother said when we walked in.
“Hey mom,” I said.
”Hey, your new house is amazing Mrs.” Stacey said.
”I’m glad you like it Stacey, y’all got any plans tonight. I have to work so I won’t be able to take you out until tomorrow Stacey,”
“That’s perfect, tonight we’re hanging out with Katelyn’s friends. I can’t wait for you to show me around this place tomorrow “ Stacey said.
“Oh, so you did make a friend here. That’s good to hear to sweetie, y’all have fun.”
I wasn’t going to bother explaining to mom why my so called friends weren’t quite my friends.
“Thanks, mom,” I said instead.
“Let’s go to your room,” Stacey asked.
“OMG, your room is too cute. I like it”.
“If you say so,” I said with a giggle.
“Hey, Katelyn if you are serious we don’t have to go to the party. I’m good hanging with you in this super cute room all night”.
”Naw, it’s cool. You already said yes, we’re going now” I said not wanting to ruin her fun and low key looking forward to this party.
If Stacey wasn’t here I probably wouldn’t have gone. I would have stayed home and went to bed early and hope dreamy was there to keep me company.
“Enough about me, tell me what’s been going on since I left,” I asked her.
“Nothing new really unless you count Mr.Smith and our librarian hooking up and getting pregnant new”.
”What! Are you serious? Ms.June is pregnant with Mr.Smith baby, wow. I did not see that coming” I said.
”Ya, the two best looking teachers at the school hooking up. You should have seen Coach E’s face when she found out. Let’s see what else, Tony finally came out”.
”OMG, yay Tony. I’m glad he finally came out, no wonder he’s been more open on Fubook.” I smiled at that, Tony was one of the few people at my old school that I missed. Laidback and super nice, I’m glad he’s finally able to be himself.
“Anything else, with the dance team,” I asked.
”Not really still the same bull sh*t, I’m still the captain so there’s that and we’re getting ready for winter competition soon.”
”But enough about the boring stuff, now tell me why are you not hooking up with Dean.” Stacey asked switching the conversation out of nowhere.
“I’m not interested in him and vice versus”.
”Naw, I think he might be feeling you. You should have seen the way he was looking at you probably why that girl was catching an attitude. What’s her deal?”
How was I supposed to know what’s Livvie’s deal so I just shrug?
“I don’t know, where ever Chase and Dean are she’s there. She’s like their best friend or something, I don’t know.”
“And why didn’t you tell me Chase was a whole snack,” she asked.
“Really, Chase. He’s like a puppy, just cute” I said.
”Girl, you’re blind but then again you won’t even admit that Dean is fine so blah” she teased.
“I didn’t deny it either” I teased back.
“Ahhhhh, I see you” she shrieked and winked in my direction.
I couldn’t help myself and bust out laughing, the loud kind of laughing that made me clutch my stomach.
I missed having moments like this, it’s been a while since I laughed like that.
