BRIDGET ONLY VERSION OF SWIRLY LANE:
"Ugh," I complain, "And why do we have to move?"
My mom slammed the car door, which she was loading.
"It's because of dad's job. You know how important it is to him." She says.
"Well it better be a good school, with some kids for a change."
We climbed into the car and a couple hours passed. I got out of the car and smell the fresh air. Suprisenly, it smelled good. The houses were big. Elgin is beautiful. My house had a big backyard, with a free pool.
Then I looked up. The sky was clear. When I looked back down, there he was. A boy about my age, glaring at me. He had dirty blonde hair and wearing a black hoodie.
His eyes were narrow slits.
" Uh, hi. I'm Bridget. I just moved here. What's your name?" I say nervously.
" Hey. I'm Randy. Randy Dom. Your new here. What school are you going to? I'm going to Lincoln Middle School."
I said, " Me too! We might be in the same classes."
"Cool. Well, it was nice talkin' to you. See you, Bridget." He gave me a smirk, like he was waiting for me to do something.
He's Really nice. I thought.
"Wow, it's real hot here! From where I was it was really cold, and here...wow!" I say.
I go inside my new house and change to Summer Clothes.
When I come out, I'm wearing pigtails, shorts, sneakers, and a shoulder bump shirt .
"Oh my gosh! Im already loving this place!" I shout.
"Oh thats good." says Randy.
"Do you know where the closest mall is?"I said.
"Down by Main Street. But before you go, I need to show you around. It's pretty small, so I just can point."
He pointed to a small forest.
"That's a hang out. We always go there. And there's-"
"Can we just go to the mall?" I ask.
Then we both walk together in the beautiful summer weather."Well, let's change the subject." I said quietly.
" Sure!" said Randy.
"I know we just met and stuff but like... I have a boyfriend." I said.
"Oh." said Randy.
"Do you want to meet him?" I say nervously.
"Oh yeah, does he live close by here?" said Randy.
"Very Close," I said, " His name is Aaron Baker."
" Oh , Seriously? He was my best friend since 1st grade! " said Randy.
"Wait, Really? That's so weird, wow, small world." I said.
So they walked to Aaron's house and Randy and Aaron hugged, then I did.
"Wow Randy, Haven't seen you in like a week ago. And Bridget, this is where you moved?" said Aaron exictedly.
"Yeah, I know! And we were about to walk to the mall, but we wanted to bring you too." said Bridget.
So we all walked to the mall, and Aaron's sister, Rebcca came along with us.I saw Randy looking at me... I just looked at the ground while I was holding hands with Aaron.
"You okay?" asked Aaron.
" Um, yeah.." I said nervously."Ummm, Why are you looking down now?" I asked.
"Ummm, i know this is weird to ask but...... Do you think Randy likes you?" Aaron asked nervously.
They stopped holding hands and they both put there hands slowly in there pocket.
" Uhh.......... Of course not." I said.
They both walked to the food court to see Randy and Rebecca.From last week when I met Randy, he was acting differently when we were together.
For some reason it's kinda awkward that I'm dating his best friend.
But... I think that Randy-likes me?
Well, now it is really awkward that I am dating his best friend if he does like me.
Maybe I should ask him...... Maybe not.
Well, I just think that my life is already getting harder after last week.
And now I see Randy getting scared of the Nerf Guns.
Just like what he told me.
But why does he like me? He looks so good with Rebecca.
I remeber what Rebecca told me.
We were just walking on railroads, our favorite one.
Then we sat on the rough brick walls, saying what girls would say.
Then Rebecca started talking.
"You know Randy?"
"Yeah." I replied.
"Well I only told you this, so like... I like Randy." She said quietly.
"Aww, That's cute! You guys are perfect for each other!"
"But I have to tell you something." Rebecca said.
"What?" I said, now alert.
"I think he likes you."
The conversation ended.
The only sounds that I could hear was the slurping from our drinks.
So I just started talking and saying, " Let's change the subject, 'Cause were best friends."
She agreed. Then we started walking on the railroads together, with our hands in our pockets with the shining sun beating on us.Oh my gosh!!!! School startes next week and theres a Begining of School dance!!!!
Oh my gosh!!! I hope Aaron asks me out.
I HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OUTFIT I EVER WANTED TO WEAR!!!!
But ever since i thought of Randy liking me, What if he asks me to the dance?
Aarons my boyfriend and all but I don't want to hurt Randys feelings.
I told Rebecca to ask Randy out to the Dance.....
But I am so excited!
And my mom said I can dye my hair blonde but it's permament but I don't care!
Can't Wait!I picked up the phone.
" Why so sad 'Becca?"
"Well, I dont have a dress for the dance! Oh and guess who asked me?"
"Umm, Randy?" I guessed.
" OMG! Really?"
" And when you said you don't have a dress... do you want to use one of mine?"
"Nahh its ok I have one in mined."
"Well, I have to go, Gotta walk my dog Charlie."
"Okay See Ya!"I saw Randy really nervous.
I think he was nervous about the dance.
Maybe if there was a slow song and he was nervous to dance with Rebecca?
Well, I don't know.
But theres going to be TWO like best couples.
And I know it's gonna be us 4.
But right now I am not thinking about that because I am only thinking about the dance.
It's 5:48, and me and Rebecca start putting on our dresses.
I was going to where a pink one, but I am going to wear a like gray/blue dress.
Well, better go change!I love my dress!
But my hair, it's like, dark blonde...... and it's kinda like brownish blonde.....
But I don't care because I curled some sides and my hair is a TINY bit puffy.
I love the dance right now, me, Becca, Aaron, and Randy look amazing.
I know this is amazing.
And the photographer took some pictures outside so I'll show some of them.
And I LOVE the dance theme.
When I was dancing with Aaron, it did feel like I was in the sky.
And now Randy doesn't look nervous while he's dancing with Rebecca.
Now theirs a slow song, and I grabbed Aarons hand.
Rebecca did the same with Randy.
As me and Aaron got into the song, he put his hands around my waist, and I put mine around his shoulders.
I layed my head on his shoulder.
I whispered to him, "I will never forget this day."
He says,"Me Too Bridget, Me too."
When I looked kinda to my right, I Randy and Rebecca dancing with Randy arms around her waist and Rebecca's hands around Randy's head.
I hear Rebecca laughing.
I know Randy with his Jokes.
As the night went on, I heard Rebecca saying, "Your the best boyfriend ever."
But then I hear something i wouldn't want to hear.
"I am not your boyfriend! I only just asked you to the dance, not to date me!" Said Randy.
Then Randy walked fast outside to the bench near the parking lot.
She said, "I'm sorry, I just never felt so warm inside when I danced with you."
"And like when I first met you, I liked you for the first time." said Rebecca. "But when I saw you looking at Bridget all the time, I just got jealous."
"Really? I know I liked Bridget, but now thats over. And I'm sorry about what I just did."
"It's okay." Rebecca whispered.
"Can I start all over?" Randy asked.
"Of course you can." said Rebecca.
Then the two started dancing in the night.
I looked at the window to see what happened but now I think it's okay.
I knew this would be a good night.
I always did.Oh my gosh!!!!!
My long distance best Natalie is moving to Swirly Lane today!!!!!!!
I am so excited!
I haven't seen her in 6 months!!!!!
Ahhh!!!! I better text Rebecca!!!!!
She got a dog!
Mine is a little golden retriever.
She said her's is an Yorkie.
My dog is named Charlie.
Her dogs name is Cheerio.
Well, 30 more minutes till Natalie is here!It's 5:00 pm.
For some reason me and Natalie are the only ones playing Mario Kart at her house, trying to avoid the hot weather outside.
But heres the weirder thing.
Rebecca, Randy, and Aaron are just at the little playground next to Swirly Lane.
And Aaron told me to go to meet up with him on the mountain top next 14th street.
I don't know why.
Maybe he's gonna give me a moonlight picnic.
Just sit on a blanket and count the stars as I lie of head on his shoulder.
If that happened I would never forget it.
But He said to meet him their at 7:00 at the mountain top in the dark.
I am still gonna wear something nice.
Why would he tell me to go their on a beautiful Summer night?
But I have to say....
I love him....
I hope he feels the same way.
I'll maybe tell him at 7:00.
Well, 5:27 right now.
Like 2 more hours.6:56.
Aaron was walking with me.
To the mountain.
He grabbed my hand and ran.
"Wha-What are you doing?" I said puzzled.
"You'll see." said Aaron.
I checked my phone on my right hand.
He told me to look around.
"It's....It's beautiful..."I said quietly.
"But why did you bring-" I said.
Aaron was kissing me!
I thought, "MY FIRST KISS."
My eyes were full of surprise.
I looked at him kissing me.
I carefully closed my eyes and a soon as we stopped.
I told him, "Wow...That was....spontaneous."
"I know." said Aaron quitely.
"I-I-I think I love you." I said quietly.
" Me too." Aaron said quietly.
I hugged him and we held hands walking home.
Now this is the moment I will NEVER forget.
I slept with a smile in my face, dreaming about that exact moment.
