Today was Saturday, the day Damon, Alex, Garrett and I would all hang out together for the first time, and to say I was nervous would be a major understatement.
Alex better like Garrett, and come to think of it, Damon better like him too. They’ve only ever really talked a few times and they seemed cool with each other, but you never know.
I took a deep breath, a failed attempt to calm my nerves, and looked into the mirror by the front door for the millionth time.
I looked cute today, my hair was in loose waves and I was wearing black high waisted shorts, a maroon shirt tucked in, and maroon combat boots. Damn I love these boots.
Hopefully Damon would like my outfit, even though its not anything out of the ordinary for me. I always dress nicely like this, it just makes me feel better about myself, and more confident. Is that bad?
I sighed as I waited for Damon, who should be here in a couple minuets to pick me up for our group get together thing at Tea Leaves Café.
I told him yesterday that I had a perfectly functioning car that I could use to get there, but he insisted that he take me. Typical Damon.
We’ve been getting along really well lately. We haven’t been arguing, except for our playful banter, and he’s being sweeter than usual.
Yesterday he bought my lunch for me and pulled out my chair at our table, in front of everyone in the cafeteria.
I got so many glares from his fan girls.
And everyday he drives me to and from school, even though I always tell him that he doesn’t have to.
I don’t know what it is, but ever since the day on the roof, where we sang and ate blueberry muffins, he’s been different.
A sudden knock at my front door startled me out of my thoughts.
Speak of the devil and he shall appear.
I swung open the door and was greeted by Damon’s smiling face.
His eyes took their time scanning me from head to toe, and once he was done his smile was gone and replaced by that smirk of his.
“See something you like?” I teased as I walked out the front door, closing and locking it behind me.
“Yeah.” he agreed bluntly.
I giggled lightly and blushed, turning away from him quickly before he saw it.
“Lets go.” I said impatiently, grabbing his hand and dragging him to his car which was still in his driveway.
“We’re in no rush sweetheart.” He told my, pulling my hand so I was walking slowly beside him instead of speed walking and dragging him along.
“What if Alex and Garrett get there before we do? That would be so awkward for them.” I explain worriedly.
He chuckled “Guys aren’t like that.”
“Really?” I asked in disbelief. “If so, I totally wanna be a guy.” I added.
Damon shook his head, “I think I’d like you better as a girl.”
“Why, because you can eye rape me without it being weird, but if I was a guy people would think you’re gay.” I teased, referring to when he checked me out not too long ago.
I looked over at him when he didn’t respond and saw that his ears were red. Aw he’s blushing!
Usually I would have teased him about that but I felt like being nice today so I held back.
Minuets later we arrived at Tea Leaves, and when we got out of the car I saw Garrett and Alex sitting in a booth together, laughing.
Looks like things are going well so far.
Damon took my hand and led me into the Cafe, and once we reached the boys I took the spot beside Garrett while Damon took the spot beside Alex.
“Why did you two have to be enemies for so long, we would make the perfect group.” Was Alex’s greeting to Damon and I.
“He was a jerk until this year.” I replied with a shrug, gaining a glare from Damon.
“I don’t know, I still think he’s a jerk.” Alex commented, snickering.
I nodded my head, “I totally agree.”
“Who’s being the jerk now?” Damon asked me rhetorically.
I just rolled my eyes in response.
After that we all fell into mindless chatter, just getting to know each other better, and I really enjoyed it.
I learnt that Damon and Alex have been best friends since they were toddlers, and that Alex use to be friends with Dylan too.
Eventually a girl around our age walked up to us to take our order when we were talking about monopoly, don’t ask how we got onto that topic because I have no idea.
As we ordered she kept eyeing up Damon like he was a piece of meat, and it really bothered me. But what bothered me more is when he smirked that sexy smirk of his at her before she left.
My blood was boiling, from possibly jealousy, but I made sure that no one knew.
I knew I shouldn’t be jealous since Damon wasn’t my boyfriend, but I couldn’t help it.
And even if he’s not my boyfriend, we are kind of dating so other girls can’t have him, right?
“She was hot.” Alex commented when she was out of eyesight.
Damon nodded in agreement and I clenched my hands into fists under the table.
What a jerk.
We quickly moved off the topic of the waitress and back onto board games, but I wasn’t really participating this time.
Damon noticed and started staring at me, trying to figure out why I was suddenly so quiet, but I knew he was too stupid to figure it out.
About twenty minuets later the slutty waitress came back with our food and placed them on the table.
We all quickly dug into our food like the pigs we are and the girl just stood there for a second starring at Damon, before giving him a piece of paper, blushing, and walking away.
Tell me she did not just give him her number.
Okay I need to calm down.
Damon looked up at me as a glared down at my food and stabbed it with my fork.
After a few moments of him just looking at me, I saw him turn to Alex and give him the waitress’s number, out of the corner of my eye.
I was impressed and flattered that Damon did that for me.
I looked up at Damon and he was grinning at me.
I couldn’t help but give a small smile back because he was so adorable.
“So I’ve been dying to know, are you two officially together yet or not?” Garrett asked once he was finished eating.
I raised my eyebrows and looked at Damon, silently telling him that I had no idea, so he better answer.
I think he caught on to what I was trying to tell him because he cleared his throat and prepared to speak.
“Well to me we are. I mean I haven’t actually asked her to be my girlfriend but I think of her as mine.” Damon answered, making me blush like crazy.
The three boys looked over at me, waiting for me to say something but my mind was blank. What am I suppose to say to that? So me being me, said the first thing that popped into my head, which was thankfully not embarrassing.
“Is this your way of asking me to be your girlfriend?”
Damon chuckled and nodded slightly, “I know it’s not very romantic, but I’d really like you to be mine.”
I had the biggest urge to aww but I held it back and instead said “Well in that case, I guess I’ll be your girlfriend.”
The look on Damon’s face was one similar to someone’s who just won the lottery, and that made me feel like a million bucks.
We sat there smiling goofily at each other like idiots, but none of that mattered. All that mattered was that Damon and I were together, officially.
I was Damon’s girlfriend.
He was my boyfriend.
That’s gonna take a while to sink in.
“Well kiss her!” Garrett exclaimed and Alex hooted in agreement.
Damon put his hand on the back of my neck and brought my face to meet his half way across the table.
Our kiss was short since we were at a café packed with people, but it was still beautiful.
As soon as our lips met, the fireworks erupted, more powerful than they’ve ever been, and the happiness and passion we both felt seeped into them, only making them bigger and better and brighter.
And like the cliché story my life has become, the whole café erupted in applause as Damon and I pulled away, and I laughed.
Laughed at the unexpected turn my life took this year.
Laughed at the fact that my once enemy was now my boyfriend.
Laughed at the fact that I kissed him in a full café.
Laughed at the fact that the person that once made my life miserable now made it complete.
And finally, laughed at the fact that I was in love with Damon Blake, my ex enemy.
Yes I, Sophia Mackenzie, sworn enemy of Damon Blake,was now officially in love with him.
I was in love with him and nothing will stop me from loving my enemy.
