After I re-met Mikey (we had met before, but never really talked) we started to talk a lot online. (You know, facebook or whatever.) Like, a lot. He called me “love.” I didn’t really care, and Bekah and Justin said that he just talked that way to everyone. But the more I talked to him, the more I realized that there was no way he talked like that to everyone. This guy liked me. And he liked me a lot.
One night on facebook, Bekah asked Justin if Mikey liked me. Justin said… “Well, the first thing he said when he saw her was “wow, she’s pretty.” and he kept asking me stuff about her. So yeah, he likes her.”
Come on now, you can’t make this stuff up!
He asked if I liked Mikey. I…I didn’t want to say no. Bekah said I had to. So Josiah said that I didn’t, not like that. Justin said that was what he expected. Which…I don’t know, for some reason that hurt.
Anyways, I took the keyboard and I said that I had already told Mikey something I shouldn’t have. Justin said “oh dear.” Which, he doesn’t say much. At all. He asked what I had told him. So I said, “I told him that I like Brandon.”
“Like, my little brother Brandon?”
“Dawww 🙂 ” he said. “I knew it”
And I guess he did. So a little later I asked him if Brandon liked me. He didn’t answer right away. Actually, it took him forever. Then he said, “Yep yep.” And that was like, the best moment ever. Oh I was so happy, and I was blushing, and my heart was racing…It felt wonderful. Then he said he hoped it was okay if Brandon knew that I liked him. Because he had to tell him in order to get him to admit it I guess. I said I guessed so. (It wasn’t like I had a choice.)
So that was that. I liked Brandon. Mikey liked me. But Brandon liked me too. And everyone knew everything. Everything was out in the open this time, you know? That felt kinda good. Very good. I was happy.
